Chapter 10

Niall's P.O.V.

It scared the living hell outta me when she ran into the house. It was on fire for crying out loud! I don't know what she was even going for.

I knew I had to get her out. So I ran in and I saw her run into the room with the most flames in it. Really? Is she for real? Why? Does she know how badly she could get hurt?

I eventually got her out and she was okay but just had a small cough from all the smoke.

I gave the fire man my number incase they found something Nicole might want. That made her happy. I loved making her smile.

Right now we're driving to the mall to get some clothes for Nicole when Zayn said, "Aye, Lou! Turn on the radio!"

Louis did as he was told and one of OUR songs was on. We all started to laugh while Nic looked at us like we were crazy.

She looked at me and then had started to smile too. Wow.....I'm falling hard and fast for her.

"Why are y'all laughing?" She asked in her beautiful American accent that stood out with our Irish, Cheshire, Bradford, and British accents. I loved it. She even said y'all. It rolled out of her mouth so naturally. I'm really surprised she managed to keep her American accent through all these years that she's lived in London.

"Nothing it's just our favorite song." Harry said while trying to hid his laugh.

I really wanted her opinion on our music. So maybe if we didn't tell her it was ours we could just ask her what she thought.

The song was You & I and it had just started. I could practically see her listening to the song. I couldn't tell if she liked it or not. Zayn and Harry where looking at her out of the corner of their eyes too.

"So, do you like that song as much as we do?" Louis asked casually.

"It's cool, I like the lyrics and it's a nice pace. But yeah the lyrics are nice and pretty I like the voices too. Really nice voices." She said while smiling.

"That's it," Louis asked shocked, "just 'It's cool'?"

Nicole rolled her eyes and said, "Dude I know it's you guys, I'm not stupid."

We all where shocked. She had said she never heard of us. She even called us One Dimension.

"How? You said you never heard of us before?" Harry asked what I thought.

"I can tell by you guys laughing and all and the voices. I can hear it and just, I don't know, turn it around and I can just hear your accents and voices."

"So you just turned around our voices and you could tell?"

"Yeah sure exactly."

"Well then," Zayn said looking out the window pouting, "she ruined it."

She laughed at Zayn's childishness and looked out the window. I watched the side of her face and smiled at her beautifulness. Is that a word? I don't care but she is beautiful.

I was taken out of my thoughts as Liam said, "Okay guys, we're here!"

We all jumped out of the car and opened up the trunk. We had to grab our sweatshirts and glasses. We had to keep these in every car incase we forgot to grab them on our way out of the hotel.

As we put our stuff on Nicole didn't say anything she just watched us put them on.

When I put on my sunglasses I went over to Nicole and wiggled my eyebrows at her. Hey, I'm trying to make her laugh. Which I did I might add.

"C'mon Niall, let's go." She said as she lightly laugh and nudged my arm.

"Eh alright princess let's go." I said as I wrapped my arm around her shoulders. She looked up at me with a puzzled look and I just shrugged and smiled.

As we walked I saw Zayn gave me a thumbs up and Harry just smiling at me. I quickly looked away because I already knew I was blushing.

We walked in the mall not getting noticed.

Liam turned to Nicole and asked, "So where do ya want to go?"

We stopped walking to wait for what Nicole said. But she just bit the inside of her lip and shrugged.

"I never really went shopping since I was 13."

Okay that's a shock. She a girl. Isn't it like mandatory for girls to shop to live or something?

"Well El likes hollister." Louis chimed in.

"Okay yeah they have girl stuff lets go there." Liam said.

With that we started walking to the first store hollister.

"Who's El?" Nicole asked me when we got to the back of the group cluster thing we were walking in.

"That Louis's girlfriend. Zayn is dating Perrie Edwards from Little Mix and Liam just broke up with his girlfriend, we called her Dani. But we don't talk about her though."

"Oh.....so basically it's just you, Harry, and Liam who are single?"

I wanted to say something about how I wanted to date this one girl or something slick like that but I just said, "yeah, pretty much."

"Cool. And what's Little Mix?"

"Do you not listen to pop or something?"

"Nah, not really. But I do like Ed Sheeran."

"Oh hey we know him."

That stopped her in her tracks. "Are you serious? I've been singing his songs in the park forever!"

"Yeah Harry's actually one of his really good friends."

"Oh my god..." She said dumbfounded as she started to walk again.

"Yeah.....so what other music do you listen to? Like what bands and stuff?"

"Well you know All Time Low cause I was singing them at the park, I like them, ed, Nickelback, Fall Out Boy, 5 Seconds Of Summer, an-"

"WHAT?!" How could she know them and not know us? I feel like I failed at something.

"What are you screaming about Niall?! C'mon be quiet!" Liam turned around and told me.

"But guys, she knows 5 Seconds Of Summer and not us." I whined which caused Nicole to laugh.

"But that's not fair." Harry joined in my whining.

"Oh my god, guys," Liam said and rolled his eyes," just c'mon let's go. Niall we can get food if you hurry up."

Oh my god food.

"Ha look! Even Nicole perked up at that!" Zayn laughed.

That caused me and Nicole to laugh as we walked into the dark atmosphere of hollister.

I unwrapped my arm from Nicole so she could look at clothes but kind of just stood their awkwardly humming a song softly to herself.

I couldn't tell what song it was but it was still beautiful.

"Hey Nic," Louis pulled her out of her trance and she turned to him, "here, I'll show you what El likes. Maybe you'll like what she likes."

Nicole nodded and followed Lou to the back. She was still wearing our clothes. She was even wearing an old pair of vans that I had.

She walked like she wasn't afraid to get judged on what she was wearing. I liked it.

I felt a nudge in my ribs to find Harry on my right and Zayn on my right.

"Hey lover boy." Zayn teased.

I rolled my eyes and could feel the blush creep onto my cheeks.

"Shut up Malik."

"Dude cmon we're just playing. But seriously, you should make your move before I do." Harry said while smirking watching Nicole look at the rack of clothes with Louis.

He wouldn't. Would he? He knows I like her a lot.

I looked at him with face that was pretty much just mad and he said, "whoa whoa okay but seriously dude, ask her out."

I ran my hand through my hair and asked, "I want to ask her but I don't know how?"

"Well how about you make her buy a dress and when she asks why just ask her on a date her something like that." Zayn suggested.

That wasn't a bad idea. It was actually a great idea!

"Okay I'll buy her the dress and everything." I said with confidence in my voice.

"Atta boy," Harry said patting my back.

"Aye lads cmon back, Nicole is trying something's on." Liam called us to the fitting rooms.

When we got there Nicole was wearing a pair of white keds and blue skinny jeans with just a hollister T-shirt. She looks beautiful. It wasn't even a really dressed up look but I thought she looked great.

"mmmmm get like 4 pairs of the jeans and we can go to this other store for nicer shirts and then we can go to the vans store cause you told me you liked vans and then if we think you need anything else, which I'm pretty sure we will, we'll get that to." Louis said really fast as he started to pick up some shirts that he was going to put back.

Nicole just watched him with a surprised look on her face that some guy knew this much about clothes.

"Hey guys help me with putting these back will you." Louis asked from the dressing room.

Liam, Zayn, and Harry went to help but since there where no more shirts or stuff I just stood there with Nicole.

"Having fun shopping with Lou?" I asked her.

"Oh god he knows so much about clothes I felt so stupid." She replied with a light laugh.

"Yeah he hangs out a lot with his girlfriend. He gets it from her."

"Makes sense. But yeah I'm gonna change I'll be right out."

"Okay yeah sure, go ahead."

As she walked in the dressing room I sat back down where I was and waited for her. She came back out carrying 4 pairs of jeans like Lou said and wearing what she had before.

"Do you want me to take those for you?" I asked getting up.

"Uh, yeah sure if you don't mind yeah." She said as she handed me the clothes.

We walked back out to find Louis coming in to get the jeans to pay for.

The guys had worked it out that we would each pay at different stores. Harry had this one apparently.

The cashier took our money and gave us two bags. And with that we were going to some other girl store that Perrie likes.

Nicole's P.O.V.

I really liked shopping with Lou. I forgot how much fun it was. He knew a lot about clothes too. I learned a bit about him and Eleanor, his girlfriend, while we where searching through the racks.

I also really liked talking to Niall before we got to Hollister. It was nice to have a real conversation with him without me trying to get away from him. I can't believe he knows Ed Sheeran! I've been singing Lego House as if it was my own anthem for a while now!

When he asked me my favorite bands I already had a few in my head. I don't get their deal with 5 Seconds Of Summer though.

But anyway we are no going to some store that Perrie? Yeah, Perrie likes.

I walked into the store, well, more like dragged by Louis and he literally attacked a rack of shirts.

"Lou, I don't need fancy shirts. Just some tshirts are okay with me." I'm trying to get them to spend as least money was possible on me.

"No, you need to understand that you are hanging with One Direction now babe. And you, my lovely lady, are going to be fabulous." He retorted all sassily.

Well then.....

I sighed so I started looking at the rack with him.

About 7 racks later we only had like 6 shirts.

"Eh whatever let's just try these on." Louis pushed me into a dressing room and I got changed.

I through in the first shirt that I originally picked and Louis laughed at and said he loved it. It said Crazy Mofos on it. I dunno why he laughed though.

I put on a pair of my hollister jeans with it cause it would look weird with the sweatpants.

When I opened the door all the guys where there so I just walked out.

They all just started at me for a bit.

"Oh my god she looks like Niall and Liam had a child!" Zayn laughed.

What? What is that supposed to mean? Should I be insulted?

"I love it!" Lou cried looking at my shirt.

"What?" I asked clearly confused to what is going on.

"Zayn called you Liam cause, well, you look like him, and Niall cause he has like 6 of those shirts." Harry answered.

I looked at Niall and he just started at my shirt and then smiled at me.

My lips made and "O" shape and I laughed.

"Okay, okay let's try on the next shirt." Louis ordered me back into the dressing room.

I ended up leaving with all the shirts and Zayn paying for them.

Harry was carrying my hollister bags and Zayn was carrying, uh, whatever store we where just in bags.

I ended up in the back of the pack again with Niall and he started to talk to me about his family. It was cute that he cared so much about them. Niall was actually an uncle to a little boy named Leo.

"Hey, lover boy, stop flirting and c'mon!" Harry yelled back at Niall.

Flirting? He wasn't flirting was he? If he was I couldn't tell. I don't even know how to flirt.

Niall blushed at Harry's comment and shook his head with a smile.

"Sorry about Harry." He apologized once Harry turned back around.

"Oh no it's fine. But was that flirting Mr.Horan?" I asked jokingly but actually I was legit serious on the inside.

"Well of course, you're beautiful." He said right back but with all seriousness and a smile.

"Oh," I was a bit taken back by his answer, I mean, he called me beautiful, "well thanks Nialler."

Lou had told me that they sometimes called Niall, Nialler so I just said it too. Was that stupid?

He laughed with his Irish accent clear as we walked into the vans store.

A weird store clerk came up to us and asked if we needed any help.

"Uh yeah sure, whatever she wants." Liam told him.

Niall's P.O.V.

I didn't like the store clerk. He was checking out Nicole like she was a meat. Okay that's just creepy and weird and plus I saw her first.

"Okay babe," he started," just follow me."

Nicole followed him to the back of the store where I guess the girl shoes where.

I hated that he called her babe. To be honest it made me jealous. I could've helped her. Well I don't know much about shoes but still.

"Jealous Horan?" Liam teased smirking at me.

"I don't like the guy helping her that's all."

"No you're jealous. I could tell as soon as he called her babe." Harry put in smirking as well.

"Well whatever I'm asking her out later."

"Good," Louis chimed in with a smile, "I totally ship you guys."

I laughed lightly at Louis when Nicole came back with two pairs of vans and side glancing the store clerk and then kind of walking a bit faster over to between Liam and I.

"I'll check you out now if that's all you need?" The clerk asked Nicole while he smirked.

I wanted to punch it off his face.

Nicole nodded as Liam took the boxes and went to pay for them. The clerk looked disappointed that he wasn't going to be checking out Nicole and I just smirked at him and put my arm around her. That wiped his smirked right off his face. I loved it.

"That guy was creepy." Nicole said to me.

"Yeah I don't like him either."

When Liam finished paying Louis was a talking to Nicole about some dress shop that he saw earlier and who he saw a dress that she would like and I caught him winking at me. Thanks lad. I love this guy.

Nicole agreed to go as long as it wasn't too expensive. But we all knew I would pay for it no matter what.

We walked into a dress shop and I was over whelmed by all the colors. Nicole just looked at the dresses like they where gold. Her dad probably never let her get a dress or let alone bought her one.

Louis motioned for Nicole to follow him over to this black dress that I gotta admit would look great on Nicole. Louis knows his stuff.

I saw Nicole smile and shake her head 'okay' and she took it back to the dressing room.

Louis smiled at me and motioned for me to follow her. I guess it would just be me back there and no other boys.

Okay time to freak out. What if she says no? What if she laughs in my face? Some many things could go wrong.

I was pulled out of my thoughts to find Nicole in the black dress that Lou and pulled from the racks.

She was beautiful. It wasn't too high on the bottom, it actually cut off just below mid thigh, and it wasn't to low cut at the top. She looked like a princess. And I wanted to make her my princess.

"Where's Lou?" She asked looking at me with her head turned a little to the right.

"He told me to come back here he was going to take a call or something."

"Oh okay, well, what do you think?" She asked as she looked at herself in the mirror.

"I think? Well I know that you look amazingly beautiful in that dress." I walked up behind her and rested my head on her right shoulder. I could see her in the mirror going red. She was so cute when she blushed.

Okay this is it. I have to ask her. "And I was won-"

I was cut off by Harry barging in saying someone found Liam and we had to go. He look oblivious that he ruined this for me. I.was.going.to.kill.him.

Nicole said "got it, okay I'll go change really fast." Before she walked into the dressing room she took one last look at me and smiled a shy smile while she blushed and walked in.

Did she know I was going to ask her? Did she even like me was the big question. I really wanted her to like me. God knows that I really like her.

I waited outside her dressing room for about a minute until Nicole came out carrying the dress on a hanger.

"I'll go buy you this. Just go wait with Harry and Zayn." I told her with a smile. She returned the smile with her beautiful one and nodded.

I payed for the dress and the lady handed the bag to me. I had to look for them for a second until I found them.

Zayn was a motioning for me to hurry up. I walked over to them and look out the stores window. Liam and Louis had about 10 girls around them already.

"We have to get Nicole out of here first." Said Zayn looking at the exit. It was just down the hall and not that far away.

"Hoods up and sunglasses on." Harry commanded us.

We walked out of the store with Nicole in the middle of us. She kept her head down.

Thankfully we reached the doors with only getting two glances from girls. When we got out the door I flipped off my hood and texted Liam and Louis we got Nicole out.

We walked to the car listening to Harry's story about how one fan tried to take his shoe. And then of course he had to make some corny joke about it. Nicole looked at him like he was so weird. That made me laugh. Most girls, if they got near Harry Styles, they would kiss the ground he walked on. Nicole didn't.

When we reached the car we threw he bags into the trunk and waited for Louis and Liam. They came about three minutes later.

"Finally! I thought those girls kidnapped you or something." Zayn said getting in the car.

"Yeah I thought that one girl was going to," Louis joked.

"Yup well so, Nicole, did you enjoy shopping with One Direction?" Liam asked her.

All eye went to Nicole who was sitting on my lap again.

"Yeah, that was probably the most fun I had since I was 13." She said nodding her head.

"Awesome! Well let's go home. It's getting pretty late." Liam said looking at his watch.

"You're such a party pooper." Harry said pouting in his seat.
