"I'm done." I said as I laid my laptop on Ashley's desk.
"The world that you told me to create." I hope that dragged her memory.
'Ohh…Did you show the boys?" Does it matter? Like or not, it's still going to be in their video. They just do the singing, right?
"Do I need to?" I inquired.
"Well, they need to know what they are working with." She said like it was obvious.
This is going to be great.
I sat down by my desk contemplating a strategy.
Which one should I approach first? I can't approach all of them at once. If I do, I would get this thing over with sooner, but I would be more nervous.
I am an introvert, I thrive better with one-to-one conversation. So… I guess I'll approach them individually. After deciding that, I planned what I am going to say to each of them. I am in no form an outgoing and overly-social person. I need to plan out most of my conversations, so that I have an idea of what to say before I go in. This took me about 30 minutes.
I decided to get the easier ones out of the way first. That means, approaching Niall or Zayn first. Niall because he's like a five-year old, optimistic and simple, and Zayn because he seemed the most reserved of the group. He's reserved, I'm reserved, it'll work out great. Now if I could just spot one of them.
I then saw Niall, of course at the refreshment table. He does seems to eat a lot. I thought over the conversation I planned in my head, as I approached him.
"Can I show you something?"
"So, I'm done with the world I've been working on for your video, and Ashley wants to know if you like it."
As I explored the world and told him things about it, things I doubt he even understands, he simply smiled and nodded his head, agreeing with the things I said. At the end I asked, "So…do you like it?"
"I love it. That's so cool. You're really smart." He said happily and smiled.
I genuinely smiled back at him.
One down, Four to go.
As I walked away to find the other guys, I asked Niall, "Hey, Do you know where I could find Zayn?"
Niall pointed to the lounge as he ate a piece of watermelon.
"Thanks." I said as I proceeded to the lounge.
___________________________________________________________________________ I found Zayn in the lounge, reading a book on the sofa. He reads?
I'm sorry, is just that I never imagined celebrities actually reading. I guess it was wrong for me to think that they were all idiots.
"What are you reading?" I decided to ask. Not that I actually care. It's just a good conversation starter.
Zayn looked up from the page he was on, and turned to the book cover, like he doesn't know the actual title of the book.
"It's call 'The Faults in Our Stars'." He replied. I gave him a "Really?" face.
He chuckled. "Have you ever read it?" he asked.
"No, never have and never will." I replied as a sat across from him on the sofa.
He stared at me. "What?" I asked.
"Nothing. It's just that girls are usually into books like these."
"I hate love stories. I'm over them, they try too hard."
He nodded seemingly agreeing.
"Anyway, I need you to show you something." I continued.
He gave me his attention. I went over my creation again and tried to minimize the details to the necessary.
He liked it. What other choice did he have.
So one to the more complicated members. But first I had to decide if I wanted to be shamelessly flirted with, uncomfortable or intimidated. I'll take the shameless flirt for 100.
Harry wasn't hard to find. I found him outside, surrounded by girls. Typical Casanova.
First, I cleared my throat purposely. Then asked, "Can I speak to you privately…Mr. Styles"
" I am sort of occupied at this moment. But I'll make room for a beautiful lady like you." He said effortlessly.
And the shameless flirting begins. I should just get the over with ASAP.
The girls disappointed, got up and left, some of them throwing me dirty looks.
No, need for that honey, I wouldn't be doing this, if I didn't need to.
Harry patted the space beside him, signaling me to sit beside him.
Instead I took the seat across from him.
"I just need to show you the world I've been-"
"Well, you look nice today." Harry interrupted me.
"Thanks." I replied out of mere courtesy. "As I was say…" I continued.
"Did anyone ever tell you that you have the most amazing lips." He interrupted again.
I paused, trying to control my annoyance.
"Once." I replied sarcastically.
Maybe choosing the shameless flirt first was not a good idea. Maybe I should cut to the chase.
"You have to tell me if you like something. Yes or no." I proclaimed.
"Well, you have to show me the something first, sweetheart."
Right. I placed the laptop in front of him.
"What exactly am I look at?" he asked.
Of course, he wouldn't know.
"It's the world I've been working on for your music video."
"Do you like it?" I added.
"Yeah, I like it." He answered nonchalantly.
He then looked at me and said, "Brains and Beauty, I liked it."
I scoffed, picked up my laptop and walked away.
