Saturday morning came early for all of us. The limo was outside for 5 am waiting to take us all to the airport. Lou and El have been quiet all morning and Liam and Harry haven't even looked at each other.
Lauren and Kate are saying their good byes and giving us all a quick hug, before running off to catch their flight to Nova Scotia. I have a feeling this won't be the last time we see them again. I look at Liv and smile "You ready?" I ask.
"As ready as I'll ever be." she answers. I give her a quick kiss and we board the plane.
"The first place we go when we land is NANDO'S!" I say, loud enough for everyone to hear.
"This plane is nicer than the one that brought us to Toronto", Liv says.
"That's because this is 'first class', love" I respond. I notice her reach into her bag and pull out a Gravol. "Nervous?", I ask.
"Not a big fan of flying", she says, as she swallows 2 tablets. I take her hand in mine and give it a squeeze. "How long a flight is it?", she asks.
"12 hours, give or take", I say, and I hear her groan.
"So, where are we going to stay exactly?"
"Uncle Si has rented us a cottage in Rinsey, Nr Porthleven, West Cornwall. It's completely secluded and right on the beach".
"Sounds nice. I can't wait", she answers.
"Do you want your own room or can we share one?" I ask, feeling brave. She bites her lip and I can see that she's struggling with her answer.
"Um, I guess we could share, but we're still getting to know each other - I don't want to rush into anything", she says.
"It's ok. No pressure. I just want us to spend as much time together as we possibly can", I say before pulling her hand to my lips. "I think that we should have a party tomorrow night, to celebrate the beginning of our summer. What do you think lads?" I ask. Zayn and Mia are seated right behind us.
"Great Idea Mate!" he says jumping up and pinching my cheek.
"Boobear, are you and El on board?"
"Count us in, Nailler!" El says with a wink.
"Leeyum. what about you and Dani?"
"Sounds good to me, not sure about Dani though" he answers.
"Hazza?" Harry looks at me, I can tell he's still not happy.
"Yup, I definitely need to blow off some steam", Harry answers.
I recline my seat, close my eyes and drift off dreaming about the 'phenomoNIALL' summer we're going to have.
A party is exactly what I need. I'm pissed at Zayn because he asked me to back off so he could get to know Mia better and now, I'm pissed at Liam because he wants me to back off Katie. Liam has Dani for fuck sake. Why do I have to back off. He says that she's 'not my type'. How the hell does he know who 'my type' is. I just wanted to get to know her better. If I get the opportunity to see her again, I won't let him stand in my way.
I haven't heard from Dani for a couple days now, since she went to LA for an audition. Things between us have been very strained lately. I can tell something's wrong but when I ask her about it, she changes the subject. I've been down this road with her before. I know she's not happy, I can feel it. The most surprising part though, is that I'm not either. When I met Katie last night, I felt an instant connection. I would never intentionally hurt Dani that way though. When I saw Harry looking at her like a piece of 'eye candy' it made me so angry. Most of time, he's not even serious about the girls he brings home. Bump and dump. She seems like such a genuinly nice person and I don't want to see her hurt. I feel bad that Harry's upset with me, he's like a brother. Oh well, she's gone now and neither one of us will probably ever see her again. When I get a chance, I'll just apologize to him. I hate fighting with one of my best mates.
I look at Zayn, he's fallen asleep holding my hand, he's tired from the hectic week and last nights performance. I think I'm falling in love with him, but I can't tell him that. He's so smart and funny. and he makes me feel safe. I can't believe that we're on our way to London for the entire summer. This rocks! I lay my head on his chest and listen to his heart beat as I drift off to sleep.
I can't stop thinking about Lauie. Thank god she went back home. I love Eleanor. I don't know what's wrong with me. In all the years that she and I have been together, I have never had feelings for anyone else. El is smart, funny and beautiful. She's everything I've ever wanted in a girl, but Lauie is all of those things to, and when I held her, there was something more there. God, I'm talking crazy. I'm just tired. I'll feel better after I get a good night's sleep.
