Chapter 17

Nicole's, P.O.V.

Niall and I finished cleaning the kitchen around 11. Hey, it only took us an hour. Not bad.

Niall was scrubbing his hair trying to get more bubbles out. I laughed lightly at him as I wiped off my hands and put my dish towel on the newly cleaned counter top.

"This is all your fault you know." I stated leaning against the counter folding my arms across my chest.

"My fault? How is it my fault?" Niall asked throwing his towel on the counter as well.

"You threw bubbles at me first."

"Well you didn't have to fight back, now did you?" Niall asked me sarcastically.

"Actually I did." I said teasingly back at him sticking my tongue out.

"You're such a child."

"Wow, that hurt." I said placing my hand over my heart trying to pretend to be offended.

"I bet it did." Niall said laughing with his adorable Irish accent ringing thought the kitchen.

We stood there just starring at each other until someone came in.

"Alright love birds are you done cleaning?" Louis said from the doorway.

I didn't even know it was him.

"Yes." Niall said rolling his eyes at Lou.

"Shut up Lou." I said squinting my eyes at him.

"Well then Ms. Sassy pants. Your brother wants you to get dressed, and you too Niall, so we can go do something." Louis said squinting back at me. Mockingly of course.

I rolled my eyes and smiled as I walked out of the kitchen and to my room. Wow. I'm already calling it my room.

I look at myself in the mirror and think about what I should wear. I didn't know what we were going to do so I didn't know what to wear exactly. I know I just wanted to be comfortable like always so I just put on some hollister jeans and the Crazy Mofos shirt that 'made me look like Niall and Liam had a child'.

I looked at myself in mirror and I looked somewhat presentable. Okay, well, maybe not with my hair. I pulled a brush through it to get the stubborn knots out. When I finished I looked at myself one more time in the mirror and pushed some hair behind my ear. Okay, I'm done.

I walked out of my room into the main room to find, I don't know, two guys with brown hair.

"Nic," said one of the brown haired boys, "Louis's and Zayn's girlfriends are coming over." Okay the guy had walked closer to me and I now could tell it was Liam.

What is wrong with me? Why can't i see? I've never needed glasses. I've never have my vision gone blurry before.

"Oh okay, Eleanor and Perrie right?" I asked who I thought was Lou when I sat next to him on the couch.

"Yeah, that's them." Louis said from next to me.

Okay I need to fix this. This whole eye thing.

Me and Louis sat there talking about Eleanor. She sounded really nice and I really wanted to meet her already. I really wanted a girl to talk to. Since, you know, I've been living with my dad my whole life with now woman figure there and I'm now in a hotel room with five boys.

The other boys came out while we were talking. If I focused my eyes and squinted I could tell who they were. Niall had sat on the other side of me and guess what? He was wearing the same shirt.

"One of us is going to have to change ya know." I said completely serious to him.

Niall looked confused at first but then he looked at his shirt and then at mine.

"Yeah," Niall said smiling, "you should go change."

My mouth hung open as I laughed.

"No way Horan. You go change."

"Demanding are we?"

"Yes now go."

Niall got up as he smiled and mumbled under his breathe, "you're lucky I like you a lot."

Oh. Well I guess he likes me.

A huge warm feeling came over me that felt like I was getting this hug hug as I smiled and blushed just a little.

"That's not fair!" Liam exclaimed from the end of the couch, "how come you can tell him what to do and he does it but when I ask him nicely he acts like he doesn't even hear me?"

I laughed and shrugged my shoulders.

"He llloooovvvveeeesss her." Harry said from next to Liam drawing out the love part.

"Styles shut up." Niall said coming into the room again blushing and hitting Harry on the head.

I smiled and blushed, god I blush a lot, as Niall sat back down next to me.

"Zayn and Louis, when are your girlfriends getting here?" I asked.

"They actually should be here right now." Zayn said looking at his phone for the time.

Just like that the doorbell rang. I could've sworn it was like in a stupid tv sitcom.

"I'll get it!" Louis yelled scrambling off the couch and running to the door.

Lou opened the door as fast as he could and engulfed a beautiful brunette in a hug that nearly knocked her tiny frame right over.

Zayn got up and raced over the the pretty blonde who he spun around in a circle that reminded me of the way Niall did.

The other guys left on the couch had gotten up and waited for Louis and Zayn to come over with Perrie and Eleanor. I got up and waited next to Liam.

Zayn picked up who I guess the be Perrie's suitcase while Lou got Eleanor's suitcase as well.

The boys looked really happy that their girlfriends where here. Oh, that reminds me of something.

I looked over at Liam to see a sad smile on his face. I felt bad for him. I had only heard from Niall that Liam had recently broken up with this girl named Dani. He must've really liked her. He seems kind of sad about it.

I nudged Liam lightly and he looked down at me. I smiled up at him trying to make him at lest smile too. The corners of Liam's mouth went up even more into a more real smile. Good.

"Oh my god! You're Nicole, aren't you?!" Eleanor said when they reached us.

I laughed and nodded my head yes.

Then she gave me a hug. Uh, mmkay, just met you but I love hugs. I hugged her back and smiled when I pulled away.

"It's really nice to meet you. Louis has told me a lot about you." Eleanor said smiling at me.

"It's nice to meet you too. Lou has told me a lot about you too." I said smiling back.

"Did he only tell you good things?"

"Oh yes of course."

Eleanor laughed and said, "good cause Lou here is a total gossip."

Louis rolled his eyes as he made way for Perrie to say.

She as well tackled me in a hug.

"Oh my gosh, I'm Perrie it's so nice to meet you." She exclaimed as she pulled away.

"Hi. Yeah you too." I said awkwardly as I laughed.

"C'mon Perrie let's put these in my room." Zayn said nudging Perrie.

"But I wanna hang out with Nicole." Perrie whined.

" I just can't carry all your stuff by myself."

Perrie rolled her eyes and sighed as she picked up one of her bags and walked with Zayn to his room.

Louis and Eleanor did the same.

The rest of us just sat back down on the couch. Niall sat next to me. I smiled to myself as I put my feet on the coffee table.

"Really Nicole? That's a table." Liam said trying to knock my feet off the table.

"Dude, don't touch me. I'm keeping my feet here." I said as I looked at him as if he said to swim in some mud. Weirdo.

Liam rolled his eyes as Eleanor came in and asked, "did you just sass Liam?"

I nodded as she sat down on my left.

"Yes!" Eleanor said excitedly putting her feet on the table too, "now I can do this with out him nagging me."

"Guys, wait, seriously, don't put your feet up there. You could break it or make it dirty." Liam said as he looked worried.

My brother is a loser. He's in a world famous boy band but, he's a loser. This struck me as hilarious so I just laughed at him.

Louis came out with Zayn and Perrie who all sat down on the other couch.

"Now what?" Harry asked from his chair as he put away his phone.

"I wanna talk to Nicole!" Perrie said getting up from her couch and squishing herself between Niall and I.

Dang it. I liked sitting next to him.

"Ha! Look at lover boy, he's all upset." Zayn said from his couch laughing with Louis.

What? I looked over at Niall to see him recovering from a glare aiming at Perrie to blushing and looking at the floor smile.

"Ah, he'll get my sister to himself tonight." Liam said laughing lightly at Niall.

"WHAT?!" Perrie and Eleanor yelped at the same time.

"You how come you didn't tell me?!" El screamed at Lou.

Lou just shrugged. Nice one dude.

"Well, boys are stupid." Perrie mumbled under her breathe until she perked right back up, "I know what we could do!"

"What?" Someone asked from his chair. Okay, yeah that's Harry.

"We'll not you guys, just us girls. Let's go shopping!" Perrie screamed jumping up from her seat in excitement.

That did sound nice. I really wanted to hang out with some girls for once.

"El, you in?" Perrie asked.

"Is that even a question? Of course!" Eleanor said getting up from her seat too.

"Nicole are you coming?" El asked me.

"Yeah, sure." I said smiling and getting up too.

"Awesome! Let's go get our purses." And Perrie and Eleanor were off to get them.

Okay I don't have money. Oops. Forgot 'bout that.

"Hey Liam," I started walking over to Liam and smiling, "do you think I maybe could have some money?" I asked kneeling on the ground and resting my chin on the arm rest.

Liam looked down at me avoiding my eyes.

"Please big brother?" I pleaded one more time.

Liam's eyes finally landed on mine and he smiled. "Fine."

Yes it worked. Ha, yeah, I'm pretty good.

Lima pulled out his wallet and pulled out like five bills that had hundreds on them.

"Will this buy a lot?" I asked taking the money.

Liam smiled and shook his head, "yes it will buy you stuff."


The girls had come back in the room and where waiting for me.

"Bye guys!" I said as I walked to the door slipping on my black vans.

"Aye El and Perrie!" Niall yelled from the couch.

"What do you want Niall!?" Perrie screamed back.

"Keep my princess safe!"

Perrie and Eleanor turned their heads simultaneously at me and showed off their perfect, white teeth with a smile.

"Will do Nialler!" El said as we walked out the door.

Princess. I loved it when he called me that. I felt so special and actually pretty when he said that. Even this morning when I was still in over sized sweatpants and an old T-shirt.

The three of us got into the elevator. El pressed the lobby button and turned to me with Perrie as we started to go down.

"You're going to tell us everything." Perrie said smiling at me.

Oh lord.
