Chapter 2: I Know You Love Me....I Know You Care
I pulled the hood over my head and slumped down into the leather seat. I yawned and lent my head on Kendall's shoulder and watched as she scrolled down Instagram. It's weird to think that only six months ago I had been a total arse to here and we weren't speaking, now we're both fourteen and we're as close as ever.
We're in the VIP waiting area at the moment, waiting for the private jet to be ready so we can go to Barbados. We get a week to practice our lines with the other actors and actresses before shooting the scenes. We've been told we're (some) of the only kid's/teens on set so we have to do our own stunts, which Kendall and I are more than happy about. We can both do all the flips and things most people can't because we both go down to her dance studio every weekend. She taught me to dance when we were thirteen and for the past year we've just been doing different (not to mention) difficult routines.
Somehow the magazines have already found out that Kendall and I are participating in a movie and they've already printed it into new issues. It's all over twitter and Lilly, Danny and all of them are blowing our phones up with questions about it. I've answered them just now and that lead to a five minute phone call with Lilly were she was just screaming down the phone.
I sighed and closed my eyes, crossing one leg over the other and holding onto my knee as I yawned again. Being excited about this movie is really tiring.
"You alright Cowell?" Kendall asked. Her head lent against mine as I opened one eye, my black jeans and high tops coming into view along with her white, pre ripped trousers and her red high tops. Her 'The 1975' tee shirt poked through my black and white hoodie which I gave to her this morning. She's not like other teenage girls who wear tee shirts to do with bands because their favourite celebrity wears them, she wears them because she actually likes the band and wants to feel comfortable. I was just wearing a plain white tee shirt but my dog tag was lying on my chest. A grey zip up hoodie on me too.
"Mhm" I replied closing my eyes again. "Tired"
"You better not fall asleep on me. You'll be left here if you do" She muttered making me smile and open my eyes again as I looked up at her. The red high lights in her hair are still there, her green eyes make everyone get lost in them and her pearly white teeth-along with her deep dimples- make her look adorable and cuddly whenever she smiles or laughs, or even talks.
"You love me too much to leave me here" I smiled cheekily making her look at me and roll her eyes.
"Whatever floats your boat Zack" She muttered making me laugh. I felt someone look at me from across the room and I looked at the person from the corner of my eye. It was a girl who was about our age with long blonde hair and brown high lights. She wore some tracksuit bottoms and a '1D' hoodie, along with some black vans. Her eyes were focused on her phone but it looked like it was pointed at us, although she looked pretty comfortable in the position she was sat in so maybe she's just playing a game or something.
I turned back to Kendall who had gone back to looking through her Instagram feed. I started poking her cheek because I'm bored-making her smile and look at me weirdly.
"What?" I shrugged. "I'm bored"
"Well be bored somewhere else" She moaned making me poke my bottom lip out. I stopped poking her cheek but lent my head up and kissed her cheek.
"I know you love me" I arched an eyebrow as she ignored me.
"I know you care" I whispered smiling as she tried to hide hers.
"So shout whenever." I carried on. "And I'll be there."
She looked at me from the corner of my eye and I smiled innocently. Her lips pursed together but the edges of her mouth turned up slightly.
"You want my heart, you want my love." I carried on anyway, closing my eyes and nestling my head further into the crook of her neck. "And we will never ever ever be apart"
"You're such a weirdo" Kendall eventually laughed.
"Ah yes, but you love this weirdo!" I grinned pointing both my thumbs at myself although my eyes never opened. "So that makes you a weirdo too!"
My thumb hovered the screen of my iPhone 6. I knew it...
The girl I saw at the VIP waiting area was a huge fan of One Direction, along with being a huge fan of Kendall. She had taken pictures of us while we were waiting and had posted them on twitter.
@KaylaFreed: I need a boy best friend if this is what they're like. Cutest non-couple ever! xxx
There were four pictures, one of them with my head on Kendall's shoulder and my eyes closed. Another of me kissing her cheek, another with me pointing at myself and grinning at her and the last one was the picture of me poking her cheek. In all of them we were both smiling and being weird. Oh that's why Lilly keeps saying we'll be a perfect couple.
I looked across the plane and towards Kendall's seat. She was sat by the window, her forehead pressed against it-headphones in, hood up, legs hugged to her chest and her eyes closed. Her breathing was soft and slow meaning she had fallen asleep. I turned to the window next to me and looked at the black water beneath us, the lights from the plane, the stars and the moon glistening off of the liquid making it look like something out of a picture book.
I fell asleep to that view, and the beat of the music pouring from my headphones.
