1. Shantez and Niall
"Come here Shan." I called to wherever she had gone.
"What?" She walked into the room brushing her teeth.
"Oh, never mind." I looked back down at the magazine.
She groaned and walked back into the bathroom. Soon I heard footsteps, and then I felt the bed sink in beside me.
"What did you want to show me?" Her voice was soft and apologetic.
"I'll have to go back in a moment." I looked over at her, her brown eyes were hard as a stone. The shirt she wore was two sizes to big and the words were faded on it. Her brown and blonde hair was swirled together into a braid. I smiled to myself as I directed my attention back to the magazine.
"What?" She looked over at me. I was still smiling like a nut. I threw the magazine aside, and the words I spoke, I meant them.
"I love you." The words came like vomit. They couldn't be stopped.
She didn't speak for a long while. Her head remained staring at the wall ahead of us.
"Shan? I'm sor-"
"Shh." She pushed her finger to my lips, then it was silent again. She grabbed my head and brought it to hers. Our foreheads were touching, noses bumping, lips so close. "I love you too Niall." She whispered.
