Chapter 40: Another Photo Shoot
"Great job guys." The photographer (Alexandra) said nodding towards the couches were Jackson, jumped onto to. He stretched out and Brody gave me a look. I nodded and we jumped on top of him making him groan and swear at us. We've all been dressed in a baggy jeans (mine black, Jackson's dark blue and Brody's light blue), white button ups shirts and blazers. While Brody has a cream blazer and Jackson has a dark grey one I have a plain black one, the sleeves rolled up to show the white and black design on the cuffs of the sleeves which are rolled over the blazer reaching my elbows.
We're all wearing lace up boots, unlaced of course along with watches and a bracelet or two. The girls aren't done yet, we've taken our set of pictures and now the girls are supposed to be taking theirs. Afterwards we're all taken some together before getting dressed in our black gear and taking some more for the movie advertisements.
After that we're going back to the hotel, eating and packing then saying goodbye to Harry and the lads who are flying over to Malta with Jabez and Iona. We'll be driving down the next morning. We're only driving because that way if we want to and if we get bored we can stop the mini van and mess around for a while.
I don't even know what this photo shoot is for to be entirely honest. We've been told there's a magazine wanting to advertise the difference between 'street style' and 'classy' so they're using us (the messiest, dirtiest and most unsophisticated people I've ever met) to be the classy people.
"Whoa." Brody said and I looked up, my mouth parting slightly as the three girls come in. (oh yeah, Katy and Kendall kind of forced the magazine into letting Megan join and then they had to persuade Megan that she should do it, you'd think that for a girl who's going to a modeling school she'd be up for it.).
The three girls are all wearing dresses but my eyes zoomed right into Kendall who's not exactly wearing a dress but it looks like she is. She has one of those flowery skater skirts on and a black long sleeved shirt. There's a strip of skin on show between the skirt and the shirt, her collarbone is one show and so are her legs. She's wearing converse that has a blue flower pattern on them and with her hair done in waves and in a comb over she looks stunning.
Katy's holding onto her arm with both of her hands and they're both trying to steady themselves as they laugh along with Megan who's laughing more at them than anything else.
David saw them, motioned to stand on the white back drop and then the photographer took over. She told them to do different poses and instead of scolding them when they burst out laughing and held onto each other Alexandra just kept on snapping away with her camera.
Twenty minutes later when the boys and I were told to come back on the backdrop my arm was instantly round Kendall's shoulder, pulling her against my side and my lips coming in contact with her cheek. I felt her smile widely and place her hand against my chest just as the snap of Alexandra's camera went off.
I looked over at the TV screen where the pictures come up after being taken and saw that not only had Kendall and I been involved in our own little world but so did the other four. Jackson had kissed Megan's forehead with his hand in hers and Brody had been tickling Katy, his wrists captured in her hands that didn't do anything.
"Okay guys let's pay attention." David called out.
"Perfect, now hold it there." Alexandra said snapping multiple pictures. A red leather sofa had been brought in and then Jackson, Brody and I had been sat down on it. Jackson on the left of me and Brody on the right. Katy and Megan are sat on the arm rests beside their boyfriends while Kendall's sitting on the back of the sofa behind me, my back leaning against her legs and one of her hands resting on my shoulder. Whilst I'm leaning backwards against my girl, Jackson and Brody are lent forward, resting their elbows against their knees and Katy and Megan have lent forward towards them making it look like their whispering something in their ears.
I don't know how long we've been here but Harry and the boys have showed up with the newest Styles, after all of them had decided to take naps. Must have been pretty long then...
"I'm tired!" Jackson said loudly so David could hear him. Sure enough David heard and turned round, like it was scripted we all put out a fake yawn, and put on tired faces.
"Five more minutes guys, then we'll leave."
"So are you packing your bags or not?" Kendall asked. I'm lying on my side on the bed watching Kendall zip up her suitcase and then roll it over to the door. After getting back from the photo shoot (and dropping Uncle Simon and that lot off at the airport) I had - like Kendall predicted - fallen asleep but in my defense it lasted five minutes before I woke up. Since then I've been resting the side of my forehead against Kendall's pillow, my arms folded over my chest while my eyes watch her every movement.
"Yeah." I muttered tiredly, eyeing up my suitcase which I pretty much haven't touched since we got here. The only time I ever paid attention to it was when I was getting clothes out and then that was it. Turning my head back to Kendall I saw her jump beside me on the bed.
"In like a half hour." I added, leaning down and cupping her chin with two of my fingers. I tilted her head up and placed my lips against hers, the corners of my mouth twitched up when she made a sound of surprise but her body sunk down into mine. I ran my hands down her sides and then gripped her hips as I moved to hover over her, hitching Kendall up to my level in the process.
I swore when Kendall's hands ran from my hair, down my cheeks and onto my chest - my lips moving frantically against hers. She tugged at my bottom lip and I let her tongue fight mine, pushing myself against her until there wasn't an inch of space between us. My back's arched, one of Kendall's legs between both of mine, our bodies pretty much an entanglement of limbs.
I haven't been able to kiss her like this in ages, in case anyone hears and then because her Dad and uncles were round and let's face it... they can't keep their mouths shut. Now though they've gone, Brody and Katy have gone for a late night beach trip and Jackson took Megan out somewhere so it's just us.
Being pressed up against her like this means I can feel her heartbeat hammering away and no doubt she can feel mine too. I don't even know what my hands are doing but it's like they don't know where they want to go. My breath caught in my throat when Kendall dragged her finger tips (not the nails, I think we've learnt from the last time) under my tee shirt and up my back.
Chills ran up and down my spine and I moaned, feeling breath against my lips as I rolled onto my back and now the small amount of weight that is known as Kendall was pressed onto me.
"I love you." She whispered and with my eyes still closed I smiled widely, kissing her again.
"I love you too." I whispered. "I'm in love with you Kendall."
Opening my eyes I saw her's had glistened and the dimples in her cheeks are deeper than ever. "I'm in love with you too Zack."
