After I text Abby I put my phone back in my pocket and look at Zayn. I say "Okay, so I texted Abby and gave her a clue to where we are."
Zayn nods his head and says "Okay, what was the clue?"
I smile and say "The clue was that we are at a place with a lot of animals. But they're not real."
Zayn nods his head again then asks "Okay, where would that place be?"
As I lead him to the store, I say "Me and Abby always would come here for our birthday. We loved it. My aunt would take us every year and we would always get different animals each time."
Zayn looks at me and says "Wait. What is this place?"
I smile and stop at a store. I gesture my arms to it and say "This is the place."
Zayn looks at me with a weird face and says "Build a bear? This is the place we're hiding in?"
I nod my head and say "Mhmm." I smile up at Zayn.
Zayn laughs at my eagerness and says "Wait, so how do you do this? Like what do you have to do?"
I smile and playfully say "Well duh, it's in the name of the store. You. Build. A. Bear." I take a pause while I say the name.
Zayn looks at me surprised but he smiles. He says "Now I see why Liam likes the playful side of you."
I smile and say "Oh really? And why does he like the playful side of me? What, does he-" then all of a sudden Zayn wraps his arms around my waist and picks me up. He spins me around and i laugh.
I hit on his back and laugh. I say "Zayn, put me down."
After more spinning, he finally puts me down but still has his hands on my hips. I look up at him and say "So why exactly does Liam, and now it seems like you, like my playful side?"
Zayn smiles and says "Because it shows you can take a joke. When we play around with you, you show that you can joke back and you don't get hurt. And we like making you laugh. All of us like you're laugh."
I smile and blush. I say "Well thank you. Now, let's go build a bear." I smile at him and take his hand and lead him into the store.
I walk him over to the first section. I say "This is where everything begins. This is where you pick the animal you want. So what animal do you want?" I look up at him and ask.
Zayn looks at the different ones and asks "What one would you get?"
I look over the animals and see a fox. I point to it and say "I would get that one."
Zayn walks over to the fox and picks one up. He looks at it and says "I want this one."
I smile and say "Okay." then walk him over to where you pick out a heart and a noise if you want one. He picks up a red heart and walks over to the stuffing machine while I look at the noises. I find a howling one and grab it. I walk up to Zayn and say "You should get this noise. It's cute."
Zayn shrugs his shoulders and says "Okay." He gives the lady stuffing the animal the noise and the heart and she puts the noise in it's stomach. Once she's done stuffing it, she ties it together and hands it to Zayn. He looks and me and says "Now what?"
I smile and say "Now, it's time to give the little thing a 'bath'." I use quotation marks as i say bath.
Zayn smiles and says "But I don't want to give him a bath. This looks embarrassing."
I say "Well it is a little kids store. I just wanted to take you here for your first time because you guys have never been here. And fine. I'll give him a bath." I take the fox out of Zayn's hands and start brushing the fox.
After I'm done, I still hold onto the fox and lead Zayn over to where you can pick out an outfit. I ask "So, what do you want to dress your fox in?"
Zayn looks at the outfits and sees one he likes. He takes and it and says "This one."
I smile as I see that Zayn has chosen a rocker outfit.
I say "Okay. This will look great." I smile then lead him to where the computers are.
I look at Zayn and say "Okay. This is the final station that you have to go through. This is where you get the fox all registered and you figure out it's name. So, if you wouldn't mind, sit down and start."
Zayn says "But I don't want to do this. I don't know how to." He looks at me and asks "Can you do it?"
I sigh playfully and say "Fine. But you're sitting here with me."
Zayn nods his head and sits down with me.
I start the computer and start asking Zayn the questions. I ask "Okay, is it a female or male?"
Zayn replies and says "Female"
I click female then ask Zayn the next question. "What is her name?"
Zayn says "Um, I can't think of one. What do you think?"
I think about a name and ask "What about Zally?"
Zayn nods his head and says "Yeah. I like that name."
I smile and put in Zally then finish the rest of the questions. Once we're done, me and Zayn go up to the cashier and as I'm about to pay for it, Zayn gently pushes me out of the way and pays for it himself.
I look at Zayn and put my hands on my hips. I say "You know I was gonna pay for that right? I wanted to pay for it for you to have so you can remember you're first time here."
Zayn smiles and says "Well, I don't want it. I want you to have it."
I look at him with wide eyes and say "No, Zayn. I couldn't take it from you. This was your first time here and I wanted you to get an animal."
Zayn smiles and says "Molly, that was my plan all along. Thats why I had you pick her out, and you "wash" her, and you pick her name. I've wanted you to have it all this time, Molly."
I smile and look up at him. I say "Well thank you Zayn. But I am getting a box and you are helping me color it." I try saying it in seriousness but end up laughing. He smiles and laughs at my childishness.
I go up to the counter while Zayn stands by the entrance. As I'm waiting to get a box, I suddenly feel two arms wrap around me. At first, I tense up but then he puts his lips to my ear and says "I found you." This time the persons arms and body felt right. I knew it was Liam. I turn around to face him and see the handsome face I've wanted to see for the past half hour.
I smile and say "You did find me. Was it hard?"
Liam smiles and shakes his head. He says "No. And if it was hard, I still would've found you. Now matter how hard it is, I will always find you Molly."
I smile and lean in. He leans in too and our lips connect. Suddenly, we hear someone clear their throat and we stop kissing. I turn back around and grab Zally and the box. After I have both, I grab Liam's hand and lead him to the rest of the group.
When we get to the group, I notice that everyone isn't there. I give Zayn the box and I hold Zally. I ask the boys "Where did Niall, Emily, Abby, and Harry go?"
Louis speaks up and says "Oh. All of them wanted to go see a movie so it's just been me and Liam walking around looking for you guys."
I nod my head my head in understanding then ask "So, what do you guys wanna do while we wait for the rest of the gang?"
All of them shrug their shoulders then Liam says "You guys wanna go to the food court?"
All of us nod our heads then we all start walking towards the food court.
As we're walking, Zayn and Louis are in front of me and Liam. As I'm holding onto Zally, Liam grabs my hand.
I look up at him and smile. Liam smiles back and says "So, did you clear your head?"
I stop smiling and I look down. I say "Yeah, I did. Zayn helped a lot. He helped and clean off the mark a little so it's less bloody but it's still bruised good." I move my hair and show him the mark.
Liam nods his head and says "Good. I'm glad you and him are getting close."
I smile and say "Yeah. Me too. Um, Liam. Can I tell you something?" I slow down my walking pace a little so Zayn and Louis get more ahead of us.
Liam looks at me and says "Of course you can, Molly. You can tell me anything."
I take a deep breath and sigh. I say "Please don't get mad though okay?"
Liam says "Okay." and nods his head for me to continue.
I take a deep breath and say "Well, while Zayn was cleaning off my bruise a little, he didn't notice how close our faces were to each other's until he was done. When he looked back up at me, he moved his head and his forehead rested against mine. I noticed him look at my lips and I could tell he wanted to kiss me but I stopped him before he could. I told him I couldn't do that to you. Then he said how you did that to me but I told him that yes you did kiss my sister but it didn't hurt me that much. I knew you didn't want to kiss her but Niall didn't let you back out. I told him that I knew you felt bad and that I could see it."
Liam stops walking and still holds onto my hand.
I walk in front of him and look up at him. I take my hand up and rub the back of his neck. I say "Liam." but he doesn't answer. As I begin to say his name again, he suddenly smashes his lips onto mine. I wrap my other hand around his neck and connect my fingers. As we kiss, he wraps his arms around my waist and pulls me closer to him. We kiss more and I start rubbing my hands through his hair. As our lips move in sync, I start bending backwards and I pull Liam with me. As we kiss, I notice how I sort of melt into him and I smile. I pull back from him and rest my forehead against his. I close my eyes as I catch my breath and rub the back of his neck with my hand.
Once I open my eyes, I see Liam looking at me. I smile up at him and put my hand to his face. I cup his cheek and rub my thumb over his cheek.
Liam smiles and looks into my eyes.
I smile back and ask "What was that for?"
Liam smiles and says "I'm just glad I have you. You are amazing and I am the luckiest guy in the world."
I smile and say "And I am the luckiest girl in the world."
Liam smiles and pecks my lips one more time before he says "Come on. We better go catch up with Louis and Zayn and get some food in that tummy of yours." Liam's pokes my stomach as he says it.
I smile and laugh and say "Okay. Let's go."
Liam takes my hand and we walk together to the food court.
