"Boys! Boys! Come look!" I heard a voice whisper shout.
Footsteps approached and stopped in front of where I lay.
"Oh my god. They look so cute!" Another voice awed.
"Okay guys, let's put some money on this. I bet $20 that they will be dating in the next week" Another challenged.
"I don't know boys, Ni's pretty oblivious. I say a month" another voice pitched in.
"3 weeks max" another said.
The voices laughed. I tossed around a bit, signalling I was waking up.
"Shut up! She's waking up you knuckleheads" another voice approached. That was definitely Liam.
I slowly 'awakened' and greeted the boys.
"Hey Leesh" they returned.
The boys and I were chatting amongst ourselves when an Irish accent chimed in.
I turned slightly so Niall and I were facing each other.
"Morning sleepy head" I smiled.
"Someone make me some pancakes" he frowned.
I smirked and let go of Ni, get up and walking into the kitchen.
After a minute or two I found all the ingredients and frypans and utensils and what not. I whisked together the flour, eggs etc.
I slowly poured bits of batter into the pan, one after the next. After about 2 minutes I flipped all of the pancakes.
- 10 or so minutes later -
"Can we keep her?" Harry begged Liam.
"I'm pretty sure her parents would miss their daughter" Liam laughed.
"I'm not so sure" I spoke subconsciously.
The boys all gave me questioning looks.
"My mum passed away a while back and my dad... Well let's just say I ran away from a few years ago and haven't heard of him since" I said awkwardly.
"More pancakes anyone?" I continued.
"Yes please!" Niall and Louis said at once.
"Alicia were truly sorry that you had to go through that. You're always welcome here okay?" Zayn spoke up.
"Thank you Zayn. Actually thank all of you" I said embracing them over the counter top.
I put the last few pancakes onto Ni and Lou's plate. I began to wash up as Harry came around into the kitchen.
"Here love I got it" he smiled.
"I can do it if you like?" I offered, not wanting him to clean up after me.
"Honestly, it's fine"
He began to wash plates and put them on the drying rack. I picked up the towel and began drying them.
Harry just laughed and decided to let me help.
-about a half hour later-
"I should probably get going" I frowned.
"Don't leave" Niall pouted.
"What about we do something tonight? I'll go home and stuff and get changed and ready and well do something?" I suggested.
He nodded, smiling.
"Where shall we go?"
"Let's go to the drive in" I giggled.
"Sounds perfect" he nodded.
The boys smirked and got up from the couch.
"Cya boys" I smiled giving them each a hug.
"I'll see you tonight"I smiled at Niall as I came up to him. He kissed my cheek as I pulled away from him.
"Bye lads" I said exiting their place.
I heard a few faint goodbyes as I stepped into my car. I turned the key and began driving. I stopped at a tall building and walked inside. I approached the front desk and smiled at the lady.
"How can I help you?" She asked politely.
"Hi. I was wondering if Kim Davidson was available?" I asked.
"I'll just check for you"
I nodded and let my eyes wander.
"She's just in her office sweetie" she answered.
I walked up to her office and knocked on the door.
"Hi Kim" I spoke.
"Alicia, how are you darling?"
"I'm okay Thankyou. You?"
"I'm well Thank you. What's up?"
"I'm came to talk about our deal"
"What about it?" She asked skeptically.
"Is there anyway out of it? Niall's really sweet and I don't think I can do this to him. I know it's good money, well actually it's great money, but it's really not worth hurting someone" i said scared of her reaction.
"Alicia, you signed a contract. You should've thought about all of this beforehand"
"I know, and I'm sorry to ask this of you but please, I really don't want to do this" I pleaded.
"I'm sorry Alicia, but I can't do that. I wish I could help you but I can't. Again, I'm so sorry"
I nodded sadly.
"Okay. I get it. Thankyou for your time but I have to go" I said getting up to leave.
"Alicia, wait! I'll talk to some people and see what I can do, but I can't promise anything"
"Thankyou" I smiled genuinely.
I walked out of the building and stepped into my car.
Once I had reached my little house, I stepped inside and let out a breath.
'What have I gotten myself into?' I thought.
I walked into my bathroom and undressed. I turned on the water, allowing the warmth to calm me down.
I walked out in a towel and scanned my closet.
I eventually pulled out a pair of ankle biter jeans and a black muscle tank, with the words forgive and forget on it.
My phone started to buzz and I picked it up and put it on speaker.
"Hey" I smiled, knowing he couldn't see.
"Hey" he replied.
"Well I looked at what movie was on at the drive in and what times and 'the maze runner' Is what's showing and it starts at 6"
"Wait what time is it now?" I asked.
"Umm hold up", he began, "it's 5:03 now"
"Do you still want to?"
"Yeah defiantly. I've been wanting to see this actually. But if you don't want to it's fine" he said
"Me too. So are we meeting there or am I picking you up?"
"Would it be okay if you picked me up?"
"Yeah that's fine. I'll be there soon. Bye Niall"
I packed a quick picnic basket with some food and brought blankets and pillows and what not.
I grabbed my satchel (that makes it sound so fancy idek) and put my phone, wallet, lip balm and lipgloss in. I quickly grabbed my keys and exited my house, driving to the boys' house.
Louis opened the door, welcoming me in.
The boys (except for Niall because he wasn't in the room) all said hello and have me hugs.
"Okay Alicia" Louis began, "I want him home by midnight, and no funny business if you know what I'm getting at" he winked.
I couldn't help but laugh. You just can't not love this kid.
As if on cue, Niall walked down the stairs, wearing jeans and a button down shirt. He looked really nice (like usual :)).
"Ready?" I asked.
He nodded and came up, giving me a hug and kissing me on the cheek.
"Let's go" he grinned.
We said our goodbyes to the boys and hopped into my car.
"You look nice" he complimented.
"Thank you. As do you" I smiled back
I turned the radio up and for the whole car trip we danced like absolute retards and sung really loudly. It earned us some stares but we really couldn't have cared less.
I parked the car and we set up all the blankets and pillows and got comfortable.
We laid down next to each other and he put his arm around me and I cuddled into his chest as the movie began.
