“Yucks! I’ve never tasted any ice-cream like this before!" exclaimed Liam, sticking his tongue out.
“Do you really have to do this only because we refuse to go home?” asked Harry, his forehead crinkled up.
“The only reason we came here is because we miss you,” said Zayn. We were looking at each other by now, confused. We seriously had no idea what they were talking about. We’re totally lost.
“What do you mean? What are you talking about? What did we do?” asked Elena as she looked frantically from Zayn to Liam and back to Zayn.
“Taste this." He scooped a spoonful of ice-cream and fed it to Elena.
The moment it started to melt in my mouth and started reacting with my saliva, it tasted from bad to worse to hellish!
"Eww!!" I spat it out on the floor and scrunched up my nose as I stuck out my tongue. "Ew ew ew!!"
"Why? What's wrong?" Mia asked. I just shook my head, unable to say a word. Then, they all tasted the ice-cream as they were also in confusion.
“Gosh! What happened to our ice-cream? It tastes like a truck of salt just spilled into it!” said Lizzy as she wiped her tongue on her sleeve and immediately regret doing it.
“This is a disaster! We’re going to have an interview tomorrow and our special dessert is ruined! What on Earth are we going to serve them?!” cried Mia, shaking her sweaty hands up and down like a mother just lost her baby.
“Nooo!!!” We all screamed simultaneously in terror and almost lost it.
Seeing us so worried as if it was going to be the end of the world, they started holding our hands to calm us down and soothed our backs. The weird thing was it always worked for me whenever Zayn touched me and he did calmed me down.
“What are we going to do now? asked Mia, her voice seemed like she was about to break into tears.
“We have no choice. It’s up to us now to re-do our ice-cream," said Lizzy looking down to her feet.
“Okay, don’t waste our time, we’re not gonna make it unless we start now,” said Alie comforting Mia as her diamond tears started to drop.
“Girls, it’s gonna be ok. As long as we stick together, everything’s going to be fine,” said Harry, putting a smile on his face as he tried to raise our spirits back.
“We could lend you some hands,” said Niall, holding his hand out like we could just pull it off of him.
“Don’t worry. It’ll be done in a couple of shakes if we work together…”
“AS ONE!!!” we all continued Liam’s sentence then burst into laugh. They always knew how to make me and the girls feel better.
So, hours went by, and the clock had already showed three in the morning but we’re still working on our ice-cream. Damn, it was hard to re-do everything in just one night. But despite everything, we’re having fun and had totally forgotten about our interview tomorrow and how our ice-cream was ruined. We laughed so hard it hurts my stomach when we saw Mia splatting ice-cream on Harry’s face. She ran like a little cute puppy when Harry chased her around to take his revenge. They were always so cute together, no doubt about that. After about an hour later, our ice-cream was done and ready to be served. We worked so hard until we were fit to drop!
“Thanks guys. We couldn’t have done it without you,” I said, rubbing my wet hands with a cloth.
“No prob. What are boyfriends for?” replied Niall, kissing me on my cheek. I was paralyzed for a moment for his sudden kiss blushed.
“Awwwww. Look how cute you guys are,” said Liam as he nudged Niall. I was extremely blushing by now and tried to hide by looking down to my feet.
“I think you guys have done enough. We can clean this mess up by ourselves,” said Elena as she wiped a smeared of cake on Zayn’s cheek.
“Are you sure? You look tired, love,” said Zayn stroking her cheeks with his thumbs.
“Yeah, I’m sure. We can do this. Just a piece of cake, really.”
“Ok then, but we’re still going to wait here ‘til you’re done,” Louis chimed in.
So we cleaned up the mess we’ve made and it looked as clean as a new pin. We were so satisfied and tired all at the same time as if we haven’t sleep for years!
“Guys, look,” said Lizzy, gesturing towards the boys.
“Awwww, they look so cute when they’re sleeping." Mia gently pinched Harry’s cheek, careful not to wake him up. He was lying on a couch at the waiting cornet and Louis was asleep at a table, resting his head on his arms. Niall was asleep on a chair and rested his head against the glass window. A smile escaped my mouth when I saw how innocent and peaceful he looked while sleeping.
“They must have been so tired,” said Elena as he stroked Zayn’s hair that was now a mess. If he was awake he would be mad and would frantically be looking for a mirror.
We decided to let them sleep there and woke them up early tomorrow morning before we opened the bakery. I went to take some blankets from the back room and covered them up so that they won’t get chilled. Then we tip toed to our secret lair, as quiet as possible so we won’t be waking them up. I glanced back over my shoulder and saw Harry stirred but luckily he didnt woke up.
“Do you have any idea on who did this to us?” asked Mia once we were safely in our lair (well its not exactly like a lair but we just like to call it that) , hugging her favorite pillow in bed.
“Nope,” replied Lizzy. “But whoever did this, they really wanted to take us down.” She sounded like a spy already.
“But why? What have we done wrong? We’ve never hurt anyone, have we?” asked Mia as she was playing with Alie’s hair.
"Wait," Lizzy gasped. "Maybe it's that old lady whom we were fighting with to get the last fresh salmon! And now she intruded our bakery for revenge!" she gasped again dramatically and it managed to tickle us despite all the worries. She always knew how to make us laugh.
"Quit it, Liz!" I giggled and then we all went back to being serious."I have a bad feeling about this. Whatever it is we can’t just wait and see what’s gonna happen. We must search for evidence,” I said rubbing my chin.
“A-ha!” Alie shouted, snapping her fingers in the air with an idea like a bulb just flickered above her head. “Did you guys remember about the hidden camera that I put at the counter at the front?”
“Yes, go on,” said Mia. She couldn’t wait to hear it. We all were.
“Why don’t we check the video? Hopefully we could see those intruders faces."
“What a great idea! You’re so genius, Alie!” Mia hugged her, squeezing her tightly and she looked like her eyes might just popped out of her head.
So Alie went to take the camera because only she knew where it’s located. Then, we connected it to our laptop and skipped the footage to the time right after we left our bakery and watched every second really carefully. And that's when we saw the mischiefs who did all these nasty works.
“I knew it!” cried Lizzy as she slammed her fist in her hand.
