While I was back at my apartment I had nothing to do, so I decided to unpack a few more boxes but I got incredibly bored and distracted and only unloaded one. It was about 1 in the afternoon and the sky outside looked pretty clear for English weather, perfect for a run. I get into my fluorescent purple tank top, track shorts and my sneakers and head out. I head out to a park only a couple blocks away. I started to play my workout playlist and begin jogging to my destination.
While I was jogging I saw two guys sitting on the bench just laughing and talking. I didn’t think anything of them as I jogged past. “Sophie!” I heard my name being called out. I turned around and tripped over my own feet. Why am I so clumsy?!
“Are you alright?” I looked up at the familiar dark brown chocolate covered hazelnut eyes.
“Oh, hi!” I said getting up off my now sore butt rubbing it, forgetting that I was in a public place. I was quite surprised to see Liam once again on the same day.
“Uh this is my mate Niall.” Liam said patting the blonde boy on the shoulder. “Niall, this is Sophie, we just met today.”
“Oh, she’s the one you were talking about bef”
“So what brings you here?” Liam asked obviously trying to change the subject whilst giving his friend the ultimate death glare. I wonder what he said about me? I begin to blush and now I have a bad case of the butterflies.
“I was just going for a run, I got bored at my apartment, what about you guys?” I asked them
“Just out to get some fresh air before we have to go back to work.” Niall explained smiling politely. He was obviously Irish, I could tell from his very distinctive accent.
“Do you mind if I come and join you?” Liam asked looking hopeful.
“Nope!” I said popping the ‘p’
“Niall, go tell the others I’ll be back a bit later.” Liam told his Irish friend.
“Fine. Just leave me then!” he said whining a bit but he was obviously joking.
“You better keep up with me, Payne! Don’t get left behind!” I yelled running ahead.
“Hey! Wait up!” He laughed and caught up.
After about 20 minutes of running around the park, chasing each other and dancing like weirdos without music, we decided to sit down to rest and just talk.
“Tomorrow there’s a party and I was wondering if you’d like to go with me. It’ll be really fun, we could dance and sing and just have a blast!” He said trying to convince me to go.
“Awesome, that does sound fun, just text me the details later.” I said getting up. “I better get going, I need to finish unpacking my boxes in my apartment.”
“Okay, love, talk to you later.” Liam said getting up as well. We hugged and parted our ways. When I’m with Liam I get this warm kind of feeling inside, that just makes me feel the happiest I’ve been in a long time.
While I was walking away I couldn’t help but turn around and smile as I watched bee jog away, she is so cute and bubbly and any guy would be lucky to have her. I’m working things out with Danielle and I love her with all my heart but I get this weird, wonderful feeling when I’m with Sophie. No, I lost Danielle once before and it was terrible, I don’t want to go through the agenizing pain again, I must not be any more than just friends with Sophie. I’m still going to take Sophie to the party with me as Danielle is in LA dancing for some TV show, I hope she’s okay there all by herself.
