After Liam had come back from hanging out with Liz for a while, we all began to get ready for the party. All I did was change jeans and put on a button up shirt instead of the t-shirt that I had been wearing. The rest of the boys got dressed quickly too and were spending the remainder of the time before we would leave the dorm styling their hair.
When Liam came out of the bathroom with his hair pushed up in his regular style, he walked over and sat down on one of the chairs and slipped his shoes on. I was pretty much already ready and was sitting on the couch as I mindlessly scrolled through my phone. I thought about texting Nicole to see if she was ready yet so I could go ahead and leave the dorm, but I figured she might still be getting ready since girls tended to take longer to get ready for things.
I was getting tired of just sitting in the dorm room though that I was tempted just to go ahead and leave and just walk around campus for awhile until it was time to meet up with Nicole. It really wouldn’t make a different whether I left the dorm with my roommates or not because I’d probably just walk with them for a few minutes before I needed to go in front of the dining hall where Nicole and I had agreed to meet.
The dining hall was near the building where the New Years party was being held so we just decided that we would meet there. The main reason why we didn’t just go ahead and meet up in front of the building where the party was being held was because since she would be walking with her friends, they would see me waiting for her and they would notice that she was leaving them to go over to me.
With the way we had arranged it now, her friends would just confused as to why she was walking towards the dining hall instead of into the party with them which I guess was better for Nicole.
The overwhelming scent of cologne that Louis and Niall had now sprayed was enough to make me want to go ahead and leave the room, but then Liam started talking to me, resulting in me having to change my mind and I stopped myself from getting ready to get up from the couch that I was sitting on.
“You’re going to see Nicole tonight, right?” Liam asked me.
“Uh, yeah…” I said unsure of where this conversation was going to go since I thought it was a given that I would be hanging out with her tonight.
“Well you might want to talk to her about where your relationship stands as far as she see’s it, because Liz had no idea that you two were dating,” Liam said like it was no big deal, little did he know that this information he had just told me was a big deal, but not for the reason he might think.
“What?” was the only thing that would come out of my mouth.
“Yeah, apparently Liz was under the impression that Nicole kind of hated you was just associating herself with you to help you with your schoolwork and studying,” he said.
I couldn’t seem to form a coherent statement to say to him and I figured that Liam thought I was speechless for reasons for from true.
“Why did you even bring Nicole and I up when talking to her?” I asked, trying my best not to get mad at him because he didn’t know any better.
He thought there was no problem with bringing up Nicole and I’s relationship with people because he figured all Nicole’s friends knew and were okay with it all even though that obviously wasn’t the case here.
I really wasn’t sure what I was supposed to or what I should do now. Should I go outside and call Nicole to let her know that one of her friends now knew about our relationship?
I wasn’t sure what would happen once I told her. I honestly didn’t want to right now because I feared that she might get mad that Liz knows and blame me since it really was my fault that she knew now. I didn’t mean for Liam to tell Liz, I had just needed to tell someone about our relationship, and Liam had just conveniently been the one asking about that topic at the time and I just had to tell him.
I wasn’t considering the fact that the time that he was basically dating one of Nicole’s best friends. I had a strong feeling that Nicole would be furious with me for telling someone about our relationship and then worse, not telling her that I did give someone that information.
I figured that I would let her know tomorrow because I didn’t want to ruin tonight for her, or me. There could be the chance that she already knew the Liz was aware of our relationship. I was thinking if that was the case though that Nicole would’ve called or texted me telling me that her friend knew and asking if I had an idea of how Liz knew.
There might be an argument or something going on right now though so maybe she hadn’t had the chance to tell me.
I couldn’t stop thinking about all the outcomes that might occur now that Liz knew. A lot of them were involving ways that Nicole would get mad at me for telling Liam. The others were things I was thinking Liz might do or say now that she has this information. I wondered if she told the rest of Nicole’s friends too. As much as I would be okay with that because I then wouldn’t have to keep acting like I wasn’t dating Nicole, I knew that would be a lot of stress on Nicole right now.
If Liz was going to say anything I really hoped that it wouldn’t be tonight because I didn’t want Nicole’s night to be screwed up. I had a feeling that those girls were going establish a big argument over it all considering how apprehensive Nicole was to ever tell them about us, I knew her friends would probably be pretty upset with her.
All I could do was hope that they would just be okay with it all or only just be upset with her for like a day and then just forget all about it. That’s really the way it should be, especially over this. If you think about it, it really isn’t that big of a deal that her friends would be furious over.
If Nicole was hesitant to tell her friends about her relationship, I think it says more about her friends than it does about Nicole. She shouldn’t be worried that he friends might judge her or not support her in her decisions whether they like them or not.
I did agree that her friends probably did have the right to be mad at Nicole for a little bit since she didn’t tell them and they’re most likely all going to find out from someone other than her, but if they are upset with her for more than a day, then that is just messed up really.
Why did girls have to be so overly emotional about things? Whether something sad happens or something that makes them mad happen, most of them just create drama that didn’t exist and drag out the problem for many days longer than it needed to be.
I’m not saying all girls do this, Nicole doesn’t really do it, but everyone, even some guys are guilty of doing this and its so damn annoying and I didn’t want that to happen with Nicole’s friends because I knew she would be devastated if they were mad at her for a long time, but honestly I think that she is better off without them.
