As we all get off the heli and make our way back to the house, I see El come running out, followed by Lauie and Katie. She runs towards me and jumps into my arms wrapping her legs around my waist. "Hey Handsome, I missed you", she says. I glance back at the house as Lauie goes back inside and shuts the door.
"Hey beautiful, I missed you too" I say.
"How'd your PR thing go? The girls filled me in.", she asks.
"It was sad actually. I don't know what Simon was thinking. It should never have been a PR thing. Those kids need to be protected and loved not used as a pawn to further our careers", I answer her.
"It's not your fault. If you want to be in 'the business', then you have to 'play' the game", Liv says.
"We could have said 'no'," I say.
"I'm just glad you're back. No more work for the rest of the summer, right?" I ask, hopefully.
"It's not that easy Lou, I have to go when they need me just like you do. You of all people should understand that", she says. I feel my heart drop as I put her back down on the ground.
"When?", I ask, coldly.
"I'm just here for the night", she answers, looking at me with pleading eyes.
"Let's give these two some privacy," Liv says, as they all walk into the house leaving El and I alone outside.
"How long?", I ask.
"C'mon boobear, don't be angry," she says.
"How long El?" I snap.
"2 months," she whispers.
"2 months?! Summer will be over then!" I snap.
"I know Louis, but it's a big spread with alot of exposure. I can't pass it up", she says, and I laugh.
"No, but you can pass me up," I say, sounding more hurt than angry. I brush past her and walk towards the house.
"Lou wait, please", she calls after me but I can't make my legs stop moving. I slam through the front door and head upstairs. I see Lauie walking down the hall to her room and without thinking I grab her elbow and push my lips against hers.
"L-Louis!" she says, stumbling backwards into the wall, putting her fingers to her lips.
"I'm sorry, Lauren. I -I shouldn't have done that," I stammer. I walk into my room and slam the door.
A couple of minutes later there's a soft knock at the door.
"Lou, can we please talk about this", El says. I open the door.
"Talk about what El? Why we keep choosing our careers over each other... I can't explain it. Can you?", I say, as I see the hurt in her eyes.
"Louis, I love you. We can get through this. I'll tell them I can't do it, to find someone else", she says, taking out her phone.
"You'd do that for me?", I ask.
"No, but I'd do it for us. I'm sorry Louis, I didn't realize how important it was to you that I was here this summer. I love you", she says, wrapping her arms around my neck.
"I love you too," I say as I press my lips against hers. I open my eyes and see Lauren standing in my doorway. Tears in her eyes.
I can't believe he just did that! I run to my room, jump on the bed, bury my face in a pillow and let out a very loud scream. He must like me too if he kissed me. I have to tell someone. I have to tell Liv, Mia and Kate. I run back down the hall excitedly and stop short when I see Louis's bedroom door open. I'm speechless. He looks at me and doesn't say a word. My heart is broken, I'm crushed. I run to my room. This whole thing is just too much. I grab my suitcase and throw all my stuff inside. I hurry out the door and run right into Katie. I can see her smile fade quickly as she sees my tear stained face and the suitcase in my hands.
"What's wrong? Where are you going?", she asks.
"I can't stay here Katie. I'm sorry. I'm going home," I sob.
"I'm coming too, just let me grab my things," she says.
"You can stay if you want. Stay with Liam," I sob.
"No Lauie. It's both of us or neither of us," she says. I take out my phone.
To: Liv L and Mia L
Katie and I need to leave. Something's come up. I can't be here anymore. I'm so sorry. Talk soon.
We take off for the heli. Not looking back.
Niall and I make our way up to our room. "Tired?", he asks.
"Not really, still thinking about the kids. I feel bad for them. No child deserves to be in that situation," I say, as I throw myself on the bed. "If I had lots of money and a huge house I'd adopt them all", I say.
"You can't save everyone love," Niall says. He lays next to me rubbing small circles on my back, while propping his head on his free hand.
"Have you ever thought about your future," I ask.
"In what way?", he asks me.
"Well, where do you see yourself in 5 years? Married, not married, kids or no kids," I say.
"Well, someday I would like to get married and have kids, as long as I get to do it with you", he answers and I blush.
"I want lots of kids, someday. With you too, maybe", I giggle.
He leans in, "MAYBE?! I have an idea, let's start practicing for them now, you know, so that, when we're ready, we'll really know what we're doing?" he whispers. I blush and giggle again as he runs his hand through my hair. He lifts my tee up and unhooks my bra. My stomach feels all quivery. He rolls me over and undoes the button on my jeans. "Have I told you today how beautiful you are?" he says as he pushes his body down on top of mine. "I am going to make passionate love to you now..." he says, as he kisses my jaw, neck and chest, teasing me with his tongue. My breath shallows as he holds my head in his hands and looks deeply into my eyes, "I love you Liv. You are the most incredible person I've ever met and someday I will marry you and we will have a whole bunch of little Horan babies", he says as he kisses my nose. Tears trickle down my face as I wrap my arms around his neck.
"I love you Niall James Horan," He pushes his lips against mine softly and gently, his tongue caressing mine, as I feel him ease his way slowly inside me. He takes his time, his lips never leaving mine. It's slower tonight, more passionate. Every touch, every kiss feels right. I wrap a leg around his waist and move my hips against his in perfect rythym. My body climbs slowly, steadily as I explode around him, again and again. He's shaking now as I feel him let go inside of me. He stays buried in me until we catch our breath. Then he rolls beside me and pulls me close. He kisses my lips softly, over and over.
"Why can't I ever get enough of you?" he asks as we lay there lost, in each other.
I hear my phone vibrate on the table next to me. I reach over and grab it without breaking my gaze. He has the most amazing blue eyes ever.
"This better be important," I say smiling. I glance at the incoming text from Lauie. I jump up out of bed and struggle to pull my clothes back on.
"What's the matter?", Niall asks, startled. I throw him my cell as I race out the door and down the hall to Lauren and Kate's room. Empty. I run down the stairs. I see Zayn and Mia in the front room, dancing.
"What's wrong?" Mia asks me, alarmed. Just then I hear the sound of the heli taking off.
"Liv?!" she shouts.
"Check your phone!" I yell back, as I run outside. It's too late. They're gone. Mia comes running outside just as the heli disappears from sight.
"They're gone? Just like that?", she asks, confused.
"Something must of happened", I say. By now everyone's outside wondering what's going on.
"Harry!", Mia yells "What the fuck did you do to Lauie?" she shouts, and instantly Zayn's arms are around her waist.
"Nothing. I haven't seen her since we got back. I swear!" he shouts back.
"Your the only one she's been hanging with Harry", I say.
"Look, I promise, I have no idea what happened. I thought we were getting on well", he says. I shake my head. Something in his expression tells me he's telling the truth. There's a knock at the bedroom door as Niall and I sit on the bed and I try texting Lauie. Louis pokes his head in.
"Can I talk to you for a second?", he asks looking right at me.
"Um, yeah. What's up?", I say.
"Ok, what I'm about to tell you doesn't leave this room, clear?", he says, looking between Niall and I. I can see guilt written all over his face.
"You know what happened to Lauie..."
"It was an accident Liv. El and I were arguing, I came inside and saw Lauie. I kissed her. As soon as I did it, I knew it was wrong. I apologized and stormed off to my room. She must of thought it meant something more. Then, El came to my room, and we were talking. She told me she loved me, I said it back and then we were kissing and Lauie saw and heard the whole thing. She ran off crying. I couldn't stop her, not without telling El what happened. I didn't mean to hurt her like this. I'm so sorry", Lou's voice was shaking and I could tell he was sincerely upset and worried.
"Lauie really likes you Louis, she never said anything because she didn't want to complicate things between you and El. She must be devastated. Thanks for telling me," I said. I watch him as he quietly leaves.
"You ok?", Niall asks.
I shake my head, "I'm better than Lauie is right now. I wish she'd answer my texts," I say.
"We can just have a nice quiet evening up here tonight, if you want...", he offers. I smile.
"That sounds nice. Do you know what I really. Want, Right. Now?", I say, whispering in his ear.
I feel him shiver, "What?", he asks in a low sexy voice.
"A beer", I whisper as I giggle, playfully. He laughs, and we make our way downstairs.
Zayn, Liam, El and I walk into the kitchen. They have a seat at the table, as I go the fridge to grab a beer. "Anyone else want one?", I ask.
"Sure", they all say. I grab 3 more and take a seat at the table with them.
"I don't feel like partying much anymore, just drinking", Liam says. I know he's disappointed that Katie's gone. Just then Harry walks into the room, I know he had something to do with this.
"Aw, c'mon guys we can still have a good time," he says.
"So Harry, do you have to practice being an inconsiderate douch bag, or does it just come naturally?", I snap. Everyone's looking at me. Harry looks surprised. I feel Zayn put his hand on top of mine.
"Mia don't," he warns. I ignore him.
"I didn't think that anyone could be such a big prick, but you've turned it into an art," I continue.
"Blow me, Amelia!", Harry snaps. I jump up out of my chair. I feel Zayn's hands on me as I try pulling free. Liam is in front of Harry now.
"Let's go, mate", he says to him.
"What the hell is going on here?" I hear Liv ask as she, Niall and Louis enter the kitchen.
"Mia's upset with Harry," Zayn answers.
"Why?" Liv asks.
"She still thinks he did something to Lauie," Zayn explains.
"Mia, I need to talk to you. Privately..." Liv snaps.
"No I ..." I protest, but Liv cuts me off.
"NOW!" she shouts. She doesn't usually shout at me, I can't help but feel a little hurt and insulted. As we walk into the bedroom she closes the door. "You owe Harry an apology," she says.
I laugh "I'm not apologizing!"
"It wasn't him Mia. He had nothing to do with what happened tonight,"
"Well then, who did?" I snap.
"I can't tell you that!"
"Why not?" I ask.
"Look, I'm telling you it wasn't Harry. It had nothing whatsoever to do with him at all. Hopefully, in time it'll all work itself out and Lauie and Katie will come back. I don't know. It's not my place to say any more. Understand?"
"No, why can't you just tell me?!" I pout, and see her shoot me a look. It's the same look my mom gives me when she wants me to stop arguing with her about something. That look scares me a little. Liv's mastered it well.
I hate apologizing to people I pout to myself as I head back downstairs. "Where's Harry?", I sulk as I glance around the kitchen and see he's not there.
"Outside," Zayn answers. "You good now?" he asks.
I sigh, "Yes." I find Harry sitting at the edge of the pool with his feet dangling over the edge. "Can I sit?", I ask. He shrugs his shoulders but doesn't answer. I sit. "I'm sorry for all the stuff I said back there. It was rude and hurtful, and for the most part, untrue." I continue.
"You know, when I first met you, I wanted you for myself, but Zayn asked me to back off because he really liked you. So I did. I'm not a total asshole," he says.
"You're not an asshole at all. Maybe a little insensitive at times," I tease, bumping him with my shoulder.
"You're not so bad either. A little bitchy at times," he teases back, and bumps me with his shoulder. I give him a shove and he tumbles, fully dressed, into the pool.
"Ooooh!", I say trying to pull my legs out, but I'm not quick enough and he grasps my ankle and gives it a huge tug. I fall in. As I surface for some air, I can't help but laugh. Harry's laughing too and staring at me.
"Um, well I'm going to um, go get dry..." I say, as I hop out of the pool and run towards the house.
