Sorry for the long wait...but here it is. For Melanie..:
"Next please," I said, looking at the long line of people.
Starbucks was always busy around lunch hour.
Out of the corner of my eye I saw five boys approach the ordering counter. Without looking up I repeated the sentence I use so very often.
"Hi, welcome to Starbucks. Can I take your order?," I asked.
"Yes, I'll have your number please."
I looked up and there they stood. All five boy: Zayn, Liam, Louis, Niall, and a smirking Harry.
Zayn smacked Harry on the back.
"Ow! What was that for?," Harry complained.
"Stop with the flirting will you?," Liam said.
I cleared my throat and looked down, blushing, my black hair covering up my face.
"Love, I'll have a vanilla latte please," Liam said. Love. I blushed more.
"And you?," I asked Niall.
"Do you have anything Irish?," he asked. I thought it was a joke at first, but his face was dead serious.
"We have Irish Cream Tea," I said.
"Then I'll take it," he smiled.
"Okay and you?," I asked Harry.
"Vanilla latte, with a shot of caramel," he said.
"Mhmm, and you?," I asked Louis.
"Just a normal mocha frappe, with double shots of chocolate," he answered.
"And you?," I asked Zayn.
He looked at me for a minute.
"What would you offer for me to try?," he asked.
"Um, the peppermint mocha on ice," I said.
"Then I'll take that!," he smiled.
I put everything into the computer system.
"$40.50," I said.
Zayn paid for everyone.
"Yout drinks will be ready soon," I said.
"Thank you, love," Liam said.
I bit my lip and did a slight nod.
"She's cute," Zatn whispered to Liam, as the walked away
I blushed even more.
"Indeed," Zayn agreed, turning around to look at me, giving me a small wink.
The next day at around one, I got an interesting drive-thru order...
"I'll have a vanilla latte," said an 'oh-so-familiar' Liam voice.
"Okay, will that be all?," I asked.
"Yeah," he said. I could tell he was smiling.
"$3.34, at the next window," I said.
He pulled put to the window in a BMW.
"Why hello there Mr. Payne," I said.
"Hi! Long time no see," he smiled, handing me his credit card.
"Yes," I laughed a bit, and took his card.
While scanning it, I noticed a paper attached to it.
His phone number.
I took the note off and gave him the card back.
"Have a wonderful day," I said.
"You too." He winked and drove to the next window.
~ one hour later ~
"Melanie, please go check on table two," chef said.
"Yes, sir," I said, and went over to the table.
I was shocked to see who it was
"Hi," Zayn said.
"H-Hi," I said. I don't know why, but I was more shy talking to him then to Liam.
"Can you sit down for a sec?," he asked.
"Sure," I said, sitting across from him.
"What is your name dear?," he asked, looking at me with those beautiful brown eyes.
"Me-Melanie," I said.
"That's such a pretty name Melanie," he smiled.
He reached over to touch my hand. I looked at it.
"Melanie, when do you finish work?," he asked.
"At five," I said.
He looked at his watch.
"Three more hours. So...are you busy tonight?," he asked.
"N-no," I said.
"Then do me the favor of coming with me to a special restaurant?," he asked.
"I....I....I....y-yeah," I stuttered.
"Thank you," he smiled and kissed my hand.
"MELANIE!," I heard chef yell.
"I got to go," I said, getting up.
I looked around quickly, and took my notepad out, scribbling down my number.
"Uh..bye," I said, and ran to the place where my chef was waiting impatiently.
So...Liam gave me his number, and now Zayn asked me out...what!!??
"Thank you, it's been a wonderful night," I said, as we approached my doorsteps.
"No, thank you for coming," he said, placing a hand on my waist.
His eyes sparkled as they kept looking from my lips to my eyes, wondering if he dared to.
I gave him a small nod, and he leaned in, closing the gap between us.
He pulled away short time later.
"Goodnight," he whispered, and kissed my forehead, letting go of my waist.
"Goodnight," I repeated, still in a daze.
I went inside and went up to bed.
What a day!
"You didn't call me," Liam wined as I gave him his credit card back.
"I was uh, busy last night," I said.
"Would it be okay if I come over today, after you finished work?," he asked.
"Um...sure?," I said.
"Super! Just text me the address, okay?," he winked.
"Okay," I said.
~ later on that day ~
The doorbell rang and I ran to get it.
"Hellloooo!," Liam said, giving me a bouquet of flowers.
"Liam, you shouldn't have!," I blushed.
"Oh but I did!," he smiled.
I heard my phone ringing upstairs.
"Give me one sec," I said, running upstairs.
Zayn. Dang it!
"Hi," I said, answering it.
"Hello beautiful, mind if I stop by and see you today?," he asked.
"Uh...I actually have a guest today..," I said.
"Oh really? Who's this guest?," he asked.
"MELANIEEEEE!!!!," Liam said walking into the room.
"Liam? Is that him?," Zayn asked.
"Uh yeah," I said.
"Oh," he sounded disappointed.
"You can...come by and we can all spend some time together," I said.
"That'd be great!," Zayn said.
"Okay," I smiled.
"See you soon," he said, and hung up.
"But I thought you weren't having company," Liam said.
"Oh yeah. Zayn's just coming over," I said.
I gave him a confused look.
He came over and put his hands on my waist.
"Who needs Zayn?," he said, touching our noses together.
I bit my lip.
Liam closed the gap between us, giving me a, not-ready-for-it, kiss.
I didn't do anything, but my lips kissed back.
There was a knock downstairs.
I pushed Liam away, but he didn't let go.
"Melanie, the door was open so I-.."
Liam and I looked at Zayn.
His face was disappointed.
"Zayn, this is not what you think," I said.
He looked down at his shoes.
"Liam and I aren't together....this just happened," I said, throwing my hand up in the air.
"What? I thought you liked me!," Liam said, disappointed now.
"Zayn asked me out yesterday....," I told him.
"AFTER I gave you my phone number to obviously call me," Liam said.
"Please...I don't want to fight," I begged.
This is not what I wanted! Not at all!
"Melanie...who do you want? Zayn or me?," Liam asked.
"Zayn..," I whispered.
"Oh," Liam said, disappointed.
Zayn cleared his throat.
"So what should we all do together?," he asked.
"I'm leaving," Liam said.
"Liam no!," I begged.
He looked at me with sad eyes.
"I thought I had a chance with you," he said, sorrow in his voice.
"Liam, I love and always have loved Zayn...he's my favorite of the band," I said.
Zayn came and took me in for a hug.
Liam just looked at us.
"Well then! CONGRATULATIONS BRO YOU FOUND A GIRL!," Liam said.
I blinked as they both hugged. Zayn chuckled.
I smiled and blushed.
Whew, was I glad that was over....
"So let's go watch a movie," Liam said.
"Okay," Zayn agreed.
Half way through the movie, Zayn leaned over to whisper in my ear.
"Will you be my girlfriend?," he asked.
I looked into his beautiful brown eyes. He looked a bit worried.
"Yes Zayn, yes," I smiled.
He kissed me and hugged me tightly.
Zayn Malik from One Direction....my boyfriend.
I know it took me 8000000 years, forgive me. I really hope you like it. Comment please.
All the love xox
