WEEK 1 - SUNDAY
I wake up in a strange room. Where the fuck am I? I look to my side and see Liam. His shirt is off. I look at my own body and see I'm still in my clothes. Good. I shake Liam's shoulder.
"Mmm, what?" He grumbles.
"Liam, am I still at your place?" I ask him.
"Yes." He replies.
I grab my phone from the bedside table and check the time. 13.34.
"Shit, it's already half past one. My mum is going to be home today. If she comes home and I'm not there then..." I curse myself.
"Lilly, easy. Let me get dressed and then I'll take you home. Don't worry about it." Liam tries to calm me down.
"Hurry up then!" I tell him.
Liam climbes out of bed, wearing pajama shorts. He puts on a shirt. I don't brake my gaze on him.
"What are you looking at?" He grins.
"Nothing." I blush and look away.
I hear him rumble some and then he walks into my sight.
"You ready to go?" He asks me.
"Yes." I reply, walking out of the door.
I follow Liam downstairs and I hear some soft talking coming from the living room. I walk in there and Louis, Niall, Harry and Zayn are seated on the couch, watching tv. I wave at them, but they don't respond, their eyes fixed on the screen.
"Bye, guys. It was nice meeting you." I say.
"Bye, Lilly!" Louis shouts.
He runs over to me and hugs me. The others walk over to me and I hug them too.
"Hopefully we'll see you soon. If Liam agrees with it." Zayn says, grinning at Liam.
"I hope so too." I answer.
The boys smile and I look over at Liam.
"Are you okay with it?" I ask him.
"If you want to hang out with them." He replies, smiling at me.
I don't feel like it's genuine though.
"Shall we go, before my mom comes home?" I ask.
"Sure. Let's go." He says, walking outside.
"Bye, see you." I tell the boys and then I walk after Liam.
I step into the car, checking if I have everything. Keys, phone, yup, got everything. Liam drives off.
"Can I ask you something?" I ask.
"Sure." He replies.
"When I said goodbye to the boys, when Zayn said that he hopes to see me soon again and I asked you if you were okay with it, your answer didn't feel genuine to me. Don't you want me to hang out with them again?" I ask.
"I don't know actually. You seem to be really having fun with them. And they like you. Maybe they like you too much. Maybe you like one of them more than me." He says, his voice sad.
"Li, don't worry. I like them, but not more than that. I like them as friends." I say, trying to comfort him.
"Did you just call me Li?" He asks, smiling at me.
I blush and nod.
"Don't worry about it. My mom used to call me that. I don't mind you calling me Li. As long as I can give you a nickname." He smiles.
I smile back at him.
"Stop here! If my mom's home already she can't see you." I say, making him stop at the corner of the street.
Liam hits the breakes and lets me out.
"See you later, okay?" I say.
"Yeah, see you." He smiles.
I close the door and walk towards my house. Liam drives behind me and when I arrive at my door he picks up the speed and drives off. I open the door and close it behind me.
"Hello?" I shout through the house.
No responce. Good. Mom's not home yet. I quickly walk upstairs and change in something else. I don't bother to take a shower. I'll do that tonight. I walk downstairs again and clean up the slight mess in the living room and kitchen. I'm almost ready when I hear keys rinkle.
"Mom?" I shout.
"Hello, hun!" She shouts back.
I walk into the hallway and mom puts her bags down.
"Hey, mom. I missed you." I tell her, walking over to her for a hug.
"Missed you too, honey." She replies, hugging me back.
"How was your trip?" I ask her.
"Good. Everything they needed me for is done." She replies.
"Do you want anything to eat or drink?" I ask.
"I'd like a cup of tea." She answers.
My mom always drinks tea. Even in the summer, with 35 degrees Celcius. I walk to the kitchen and put on a kettle with water. I wait for it to boil and grab two mugs and pout the water into them. Then I grab a thea bag and dip it in the glasses. I walk to the living room with the mugs and hand one to mom. She is watching a show: Catfish. It's on MTV. I'm glad that she's home again.
"I'm really glad that you're home again." I tell her once more.
"I'm too." She says.
I hug her from the side.
"Do you mind if I go upstairs and finish my homework?" I ask.
"No, I don't mind. I'm going to take a bath in a while." She says.
"Okay. Love you." I say.
I walk upstairs and sit down on my bed with my laptop and phone. We have to write our own story for English. It has to contain at least 10.000 words. It seems like a lot, but with a story you have those words pretty quick. I put on some music on Spotify and put my earbuds in and start writing. After a little while, at least it felt a little while, my mom opens the door, dressed in a bath robe.
"Hey, hun. I'm going to order some food. What would you like to eat?" She asks.
"Oh, hey, have you been in bath already? I really don't know. Whatever you want." I reply.
"Okay. And yes, I've been in there for an hour and a half." She says.
"Okay, wow, time passes fast." I say.
"Why?" Mom asks.
"I have to write a story for English and it has to be at least 10.000 words. I started when you were still downstairs and now I'm here. I wrote about 9000 words in the past one and a half hour." I explain.
"That's a lot. Can I read it when you're finished?" She questions.
"Sure. I'll give it to you when I'm done." I respond.
"I will call you when dinner is here." She says, closing the door behind her.
I continue on my story untill my music stops, signalling I've listened the whole playlist. I save the story and close my laptop. I go downstairs and sit down next to my mom on the couch. She's watching 90 Days To Wed on TLC.
"Are you already finished with your homework?" She asks.
"Yes, how long does it take until the food is here?" I ask.
"I think it should be here in 10 minutes." She replies.
"Okay." I say and pull my phone out.
I get to WhatsApp and send a message to Liam.
I wish I could be with you right now. Things are kind of awkward with mom.
I send it and then I open a game. I play it until Liam replies. A smile creeps onto my face, just at the sight of his name.
"What are you so smiley about?" Mom asks.
"Nothing. Just messaging with the girls." I reply.
"Show me." She says.
"No. It's private. You don't want to know it." I say locking my phone.
"Okay, then you don't show me." She says, focusing back on the tv.
I unlock my phone again and look at Liam's message.
Why don't you come over then?
I can't. She just came home today... Plus, I'll see you tomorrow again, at school.
Ughh, don't make me think about it, just the fact that I'm going to have to deal with you like every other student ;p.
You're so mean to meeeehh :(.
Hahaha, I made you cry.
That isn't supposed to be funny y'know?
I know, but I find it funny anyways.
See you tomorrow!
Nooo, don't leave me! The boys are being annoying again...
I decide to tease Liam and ignore his message, also because the doorbell rings.
"I'll go, the money is on the counter?" I say.
"Yes." Mom replies.
I walk to the counter and grab the money from it before walking to the door. I open it and Niall is there, with bags of food. He's dressed in working clothes.
"Hey, Niall. What about the clothes?" I ask him, taking the bags.
"I'm working. A boy needs some money, right?" He smiles.
"True, how much?" I smile back.
"25 euros." He replies.
I hand him the money and a tip.
"Keep the change. Good luck with your job." I say.
"Thanks, for both." He responds.
"Bye, see you later!" I say.
"See you!" He replies.
I close the door and walk back to the living room.
"That took you long enough. Was it a hot boy or someting?" Mom asks.
"No, just a boy I know." I answer.
"Okay? No boyfriend?" She asks.
"No, mom. no boyfriend." I tell her.
"Okay." She says.
She grabs some food and starts eating. I quickly eat some food too and then I get upstairs. I open my laptop and go to Netflix. I change into my pajamas and get under the covers. I click on Pretty Little Liars and start a marathon.
