"So what do you guys wanna do then?" Liam asks.
Harry speaks up and says "Well, while you were all over each other's faces, all of us decided we wanted popcorn, so you guys should make popcorn."
I widen my eyes and say "Why do we have to make the popcorn? Why can't you guys? You are the ones that want it."
Louis speaks up and says "Well, if Liam remembers correctly, he might want to cook since the last time we tried to...it didn't end so well." All of us laugh as Liam just shakes his head.
Liam says "Oh come on. What are you going to do? You're making popcorn."
All of the boys give him a look and Liam suddenly widens his eyes. He starts helping me up off his lap and guides me to the kitchen. He says "Never mind. We better make it." All of us laugh as Liam pulls me to the kitchen.
Once we get in there, Liam still has my hand in his and he turns around to face me. He pulls me to him and wraps his arms around my waist. Our torsos and chests are together as I have my arms on his biceps. I playfully squeeze his muscles and I smile. Liam smiles down at me and says "You like them?"
I nod my head and say "Yeah, no wonder why it's so easy for you to lift me." I smile.
Liam smiles and says "Oh, you mean like this." Then he bends down and lifts over his shoulder.
I laugh as he spins me around. I hit him and kick my legs and say "Liam! Let me down." I still laugh.
Liam laughs. He spins around more but then he sort of loses his balance. He sort of drops me and I fall back against the corner and he falls forward so he is close to me. I'm holding myself up against the corner and Liam puts his hands on either side of me on the counter so he doesn't fall.
Both of our chests our rising and falling and I just smile. I look at him and say "See, I told you you shouldn't do that."
Liam smiles and says "I know. But it's just too much fun." He smiles and puts his face closer to mine. He rests his forehead against mine and says "I like playing around with you."
I smile and cup his face with my hand. I look into his eyes and I lean in. Our lips touch but I tease him and not fully connect our lips. I smile as I can tell he is getting restless. Liam puts his hand behind my neck and he pulls me closer to him to fully connect our lips. At first, it's a simple and nice kiss but then Liam kisses me harder and with more passion. His lips sync with mine and he sucks on my bottom lip. I wrap my arms around his neck and he puts his hands on my waist. Without breaking the kiss, Liam lifts me up and sets me up onto the counter. He spreads my legs and he stands between my thighs. I wrap my legs around his waist and pull him closer to me. He rests his hands onto my thighs and he begins rubbing the inside of them. I get a shiver down my spine and Liam notices. He smiles as we kiss then I lick his bottom lip. Liam keeps rubbing my thighs and lets my tongue slide into his mouth. Our tongues fight for dominance but he ends up winning. I take my tongue out of his mouth and start kissing down his jawline. Suddenly, he pulls away when we hear Louis yell "We, don't hear any popcorn popping in there. Do we have to come in there and make it ourselves?"
Liam walks away from me and I sit on the counter while he makes popcorn. As he's watching it, I get off the counter and go up behind him. I wrap my arms around his waist from behind and I start leaving small kisses on his shoulders. I rub my hands on his sides and I get to the hem of his t-shirt. I say in between kisses "You know, I do like this shirt on you, but do you know what I like even better?"
As Liam continues to watch the popcorn, he says "Hmm?"
I smile and lean up on my tiptoes. I put my lips to his ear and say "This shirt off of you." I start putting my fingertips to the hem of the shirt and I slide my hands up. Liam turns around to face me and he stops my hands. He looks at me and smiles. He takes his hand and tucks a piece of hair behind my ear and says "Not right now. Let's just get the boys their popcorn and then...." He pauses and smiles at me. Liam puts his lips to my ear and says "Then, we can continue our little session when we're in my room."
I look at him and say "Who says I'm sleeping in your room?" I try to hide a smile.
Liam notices and smiles. He says "I say so or I could always carry you to my room."
I laugh nervously and say "No, I don't think that will be necessary. I'll just go with you to your room."
Liam smiles and says "That's what I thought. Now come here." He puts his hand behind my neck and pulls my lips to his.
As we kiss, we suddenly hear the microwave beep and the popcorn is done. We pull away from each other and Liam turns around to take the popcorn out.
I walk away from him and get a couple of bowls out of the cupboard. As I separate the bowls, I feel Liam's body come up behind mine. I smile as Liam's arms wrap around my waist with the popcorn bag in his hand. I lift his hand up so I can open the bag and I pour the popcorn into the bowls as his arms are around my waist.
When I finish pouring the popcorn into the bowl, I say "Do you know what I wonder?"
As Liam is still behind me, he rests his chin on my shoulder and says "Hmm?"
I take a breath and say "What if we weren't dating right now? What if the boys didn't put us together? What if..." I trail off. I sigh and continue. "What if...you...fell for my sister...instead of...me?"
Liam puts his hands on my waist and turns me around to face him. He looks me in the eyes and says " Molly, I still would've kissed you. If the boys didn't put us together, I still would've kissed you. What I said at the hospital, I meant that. When I said I want to take all of your pain away, I meant it. I still mean it now. I wish I could take away all of the pain you felt. I hate seeing you hurt and today...today made my heart break. Seeing you in so much worry ness and pain, all I wanted to do was cuddle you and hold you. I hate seeing you in pain, Molly. And like I said before, I still would've wanted you. If we didn't start dating at the hospital, I would've kissed you any chance I could after that to show you how I care about you. Molly, I want you. Only you."
I look down and blush a little bit. Liam puts two fingers under my chin and he lifts my head up to look at him. Once my eyes lock with his, we both smile. He leans down and puts my lips to his. As i gently kiss him, I put my hands on his waist and squeeze his T-shirt between my fingers.
I pull back from him and rest my forehead against his. We close our eyes and just stand together. I keep my eyes closed and say "Come on. We better get this popcorn to them before they get restless."
Liam groans and I open my eyes to see him looking at me. He says "But I wanna be here with you."
I smile and say "You'll be with me in the living room. I can sit on your lap if you want me to just so then we can be close."
Liam smiles and nods his head. I sigh and say "Now, how are we going to take all of these bowls?"
Liam smiles and I can tell he has an idea. He suddenly picks me up bridal style and takes me in his arms. He smiles and says "Now, you can hold all of the bowls and I can hold you."
I smile and give him a peck on the lips. I grab the bowls of popcorn and Liam carries me to the living room. When we get in there, we see everyone watching a movie. I notice they're watching "Get Smart".
Liam carries me over to Harry and Abby and I give them a bowl of popcorn. Abby looks at us and she just smiles. She asks "Liam, why are you carrying my sister? I mean I know she's lazy sometimes but I mean she can walk by herself."
I open my mouth wide and playfully act hurt. I reach into a bowl and throw some popcorn at Abby and Harry. Abby acts surprised and throws more at me. Both of us laugh as we throw more popcorn at each other. Liam tries stopping me but I just throw more.
Suddenly, Emmi comes up and grabs a bowl without knowing that we were throwing popcorn. As she grabs the bowl, Abby throws some popcorn and it hits Emily. Me and Abby are surprised and we cover our mouths with our hands.
Emily snaps her head to look at us and she has a serious look. She looks at Abby and asks "Did you just throw popcorn at me?" Abby's eyes widen and she slowly nods. Everything gets quiet and all of us are now looking at Abby and Emily.
My hand is still over my mouth as I'm trying to hide a smile. I look at Emily and I can tell she's trying to hide a smile herself. She says "Well, I guess I'll just have to do this." Emily takes a handful of popcorn and throws it at Abby.
Abby's mouth falls and I laugh. Both of them look at me and I go serious. Abby says "Oh, you think that's funny huh?"
I shake my head and stay serious. Abby and Emily look at each other then back at me. Emily says "Well, we heard you laugh so we think you do think it was funny. So, I guess we'll just have to do this." Both of them grab a handful of popcorn and throw it at me. Since I'm still in Liam arms, it hits him too. Liam looks at the both of them surprised and I laugh. He looks at me and he asks "You think that's funny don't you?"
I nod my head and say "But do you want to know what I think is more funny?"
Liam looks at with a confused look and asks "What?"
I grab a handful of popcorn and I say "this." as I throw the popcorn at his face. Liam puts me down and I put the bowls on the table. Liam looks at me and says "Oh, that was a big mistake babe."
Me and the girls laugh then Louis suddenly yells "Popcorn fight!!!"
All of us laugh and we grab a bowl of popcorn. Me, Abby, and Emily go behind one couch and Liam and the boys go behind the other. Looks like it's boys vs. girls.
We all keep throwing popcorn at each other but then me and the girls notice we're out of popcorn. I look at the table and see one last bowl of popcorn. Liam sees me look at it and he smiles. I run from behind the couch and get pelted with popcorn. I grab the bowl right before Liam does then I run back to behind the couch. Right before I get to the couch, Liam catches up to me and wraps his arms around my waist. He lifts me up and spins me around but I still have the bowl. As Liam spins me, I yell to Abby and Emily "Are one of you guys going to help me out here? I can't really escape."
Emily comes running out from behind the couch and tries to help me but Niall runs out and grabs her right before she gets to me. Niall lifts Emily over his shoulder and runs her back behind the couch where the other boys are. Abby decides to run out behind the couch and runs to me but then Harry catches her. Harry lifts Abby over his shoulder and runs around with her.
Liam watches him so I decide that since he's distracted, I can get out of his arms. I pry myself out of his arms and get behind the couch.
Somehow, all of the popcorn is still in there. I stand behind the couch and Liam is smiling at me. He looks at me and says "Come on Molly. It's only you on your side now. Me and the boys have surely won and we have captured Abby and Emily." I look over at Abby and Emily and see them in Niall's and Harry's arms as they keep them from running back over to me. I look back at Liam and see him walking slowly towards me. I stand there as Liam gets closer to me. Finally, Liam gets to me and he puts his lips to my ear and his hands on my waist. I have the bowl behind my back and Liam says "Come on, Mol. Just surrender."
I act like I melt to his touch and his voice. He smiles and I put my lips to his ear. I say " I don't know. I just have to do this first." I suddenly take the bowl out from behind me. I hold it above Liam's head and I pour all of the popcorn onto him. Liam closes his eyes as all of the popcorn drops all over him and I get out of his arms. I put the bowl down and get a safe distance away from Liam.
When he opens his eyes, I smile and he smiles back. He looks at me and says "Oh, babe. That was a big mistake on your part."
I shrug my shoulders and smile. I say "I don't think it was. I might just do it again."
Liam smiles and says "Not before I catch you first." Liam looks behind him and says "Louis, Zayn. Will you please help me catch her?"
My face goes serious and I see Louis and Zayn smile. Louis says "I mean, I guess we have to help you. We are your servants for the day and the day isn't over yet."
Liam looks at me and says "Oh yeah. You guys do have to help me."
Emily cuts in and says "But wait, what about Niall and Harry? Don't you want them to help?"
Liam smiles and says "Nah. They can just stay there and keep you from getting back by Molly. Now, why don't we get her huh?" Liam looks at Zayn and Louis and they both nod their heads.
I slowly back away as I see them all walk towards me. As they get closer, I bolt off running. I run into the kitchen and I run around the table. Liam and the boys run in after me and see me. They walk towards the table and they laugh. Liam smiles at me and says "Oh, Molly. That was a really bad place to try and get away." Liam and Louis walk around on my left side and Zayn walks around on my right. Before they get to me, I smile and I quickly crawl over the table and get away from them.
I laugh as I run down the hall towards the bedrooms. I run into Liam's room and stand in there. As I catch my breath, Liam and the boys enter. Liam looks at them and says "Stay out in the hallway in case she gets away from me." He pauses and looks at me. He continues and says "Which probably won't happen." Him and the boys smile.
I smile and say "I don't know. I could surprise you." I wink at Liam.
Liam smiles and he starts walking towards me. I walk to behind his bed and Liam walks closer to me. I wait until he is close enough to me then I climb over his bed and I escape out the door. As I run out the door, I smash into Zayn and he wraps his arms around me from behind. I squirm and try to get out of his hold but his grip tightens. I try thinking of what I could but then I remember. As Liam walks out of his bedroom door, I grab Zayn's right arm and I flip him over. He lands on the floor and as I run away laughing, I hear him groan.
I run into the kitchen and yell "I told you I could do that Liam. Now don't make me do that to you."
Suddenly, a pair of arms wrap around me and I don't know who it is. I hear them say "It's okay, Liam. I got her now. Come in here." I notice that the voice belonged to Niall and I sigh.
Suddenly, I turn around and see Emily kissing Niall's neck and his grip loosens. I get out of his arms and I run behind the counter.
I see Niall turn around to Emily and he says "You made me let her go."
Emily smiles and says "Well, of course I had to. She's my best friend."
I smile and say "Thanks Emily."
She looks at me and smiles. She says "No problem girl." then she looks back at Niall.
Niall smiles and says "Well then I guess you're going to have to pay for it." Emily looks at him confused then suddenly Niall bends down and lifts her over his shoulder. I laugh then hear Liam, Louis, and Zayn come into the kitchen.
I run into the living room and see Emily still over Niall's shoulder, Harry still has his arms wrapped around Abby and I look back to see Louis, Liam, and Zayn run in here. I run behind the table and finally, Liam, Zayn, and Louis have cornered me.
All of them smile and Liam says "There's no where left to run Molly. Just surrender."
I smile as I get an idea. As Louis and Zayn stand on the sides of me, Liam is straight ahead of me. I smile and say "While I do have one more place to run."
Liam looks at me confused. I smile then I run, step onto the table and jump into his arms. Liam catches me but from the impact, he falls backwards and lands on the floor. I smile as I hear him groan. He finally opens his eyes again and he looks at me. He says "Well that wasn't a very good place to run. 1) you made me fall over and 2) I have you now." He wraps his arms around me as I sit on his stomach.
I say "Well, I did say that I had a place to run but I never said it was a good place."
Liam smiles and says "Or a smart one."
I open my mouth and playfully act surprised as I lightly tap him on his chest. Liam smiles and rubs my sides. He looks at me and says "I'm kidding. I'm glad you ran to me. It's like the place that you wanted to run to was me. Like you wanted to run into my arms and hope I would be there to catch you."
I smile and lean down. I get close to his face and rest my forehead against his. I smile and say "That's exactly what I wanted to do. And you proved me right. You were there to catch me and you did."
Liam smiles and he leans up and pecks my lips. He smiles and says "Do you surrender to me now?"
I smile and say "I'd always surrender to you Liam."
He smiles and I lean down and kiss him. I pull back up and say "But first, you have to say something."
Liam smiles and says "And what is that?"
I say "You have to say that I am a tougher girl then I look and I'm not a girl that is all weak and can't handle herself."
Liam smiles and puts my face between his hands. He looks me in the eyes and says "Molly, you are definitely a tougher girl then you look. You are not the type of girl that is weak and can't handle herself. You go through things and you still prove that you can take it. You make sure people are okay before handling your own feelings. Molly, you are the strongest girl I know."
I smile and look him in the eyes. I ask "Do you really mean that?"
Liam's face turns serious and he takes my hands in his. He looks me in the eyes and says "Of course I do."
I smile and lean down. I slowly put my lips to his and I gently kiss him. He smiles and kisses me back. I pull back a little but our lips are still touching. I whisper "I surrender."
I feel Liam smile and he leans up and kisses me again. I smile and kiss him back. I pull back from him and get off. I stand up and I hold out my arms. Liam takes my hands and I help pull him up. I wrap my arms around his waist and he wraps his arms around me. I turn my head to see Emily still over Niall's shoulder, Abby and Harry are now on a couch, and Zayn and Louis are on the floor watching the movie.
I close my eyes but then I suddenly hear groaning. I open my eyes and see Niall and Emily on a couch and Emily is the one that's groaning.
As I continue hugging Liam, I say "I guess now she's officially apart of the group. Now Niall has dropped her on the couch and land on her, she's finally one of us." All of us laugh but Emily doesn't.
She looks at me and says "It's not funny. It really hurts. You don't understand."
Liam cuts in and says "Oh, believe me. She does. The first day me and the boys brought her here, I put her over my shoulder and walked her in from outside and I dropped her on the couch and then fell on her.-"
I cut Liam off and say "That was the day that he almost kissed me but then the boys stopped us."
Liam laughs and says "Yeah. And then I did it a second time when Abby first got here."
I nod my head and say "Yep. So technically, I've been through two times the pain you and Abby have went through."
Emily nods but then gets a confused look on her face. She says "But wait. When did Abby get dropped?"
Harry speaks up and says "Oh. Yesterday when Abby first got here, Liam and Molly were joking around and Liam said he could lift Molly up over his shoulder again and Abby was laughing so Molly said that she shouldn't be laughing cause it could happen to her.-"
Abby cuts Harry off and says "Yeah, and then I said I was fine but then Harry over here decides to do it anyway and he drops me on the couch and he falls on top of me. It seems like only us girls know what the pain is like."
I speak up and shyly smile. I say "Not necessarily."
All of them except Liam and Zayn look at me confused. I say "Well, when Liam dropped me the second time, I pushed him off of me and then I landed on him. Then today, when I was running from the Liam, Zayn, and Louis, I ran out of Liam's room but I ran into Zayn and he caught me. Well, to get away from him, I flipped him over onto the floor." I pause and say "I never asked you how you felt after that by the way. Are you okay Zayn?"
Zayn looks at me and says "Yeah, I'm fine. It's just now I know not to piss you off or scare you from behind."
All of us laugh and then I continue. I say "Then when the boys surrounded me, I ran straight into Liam and made him fall over. I jumped off the table and he caught me but then he fell back wards and landed on the floor." I rub Liam's back as my arms are still around his waist and he reciprocates my actions for me to know it's okay.
All of us laugh and Emily says "Well then I guess you do know double the pain and so does Liam and Zayn. Oh yeah, and sorry for what happened Zayn. Yeah um, Molly can be pretty...violent sometimes if she needs to be."
I look at Emily and say "Hey! I'm not violent. I just...show people what I can do when I need to."
All of them laugh at me as I just hide my face in Liam's chest. Liam rubs my back and I hear him chuckle.
Once everyone stops laughing, all of us sit on the couches together and continue watching the movie.
