Good they all agreed to be friends this was better. Even though my little feelings were still there I tired to push them aside for now. I through Harry his clothes and set mine down on the couch, following Zayn and the rest into the kitchen. I got in the kitchen and Zayn passed me my breakfast sandwich. I took it back to the living room and sat down on the couch, the boys followed with there food and sat down. God these boys were hungry they were done before me .
Zayn- So what are we going to do today, you know we could always sleepover again since theres no school tomorrow
Niall- Sounds good to me
Liam- Yeah, how about you Bell
I shot a look at Liam, I really didn't like him calling me Bell it was to cute now.
Bella- I don't know um I'm going to go change and I'll be right back
I grabbed my clothes and walked to the washroom. I shut the door behind me and pulled on my pants, I slipped off Harrys sweater and put on Liam's cut off shirt. My clothes smelt good from the wash, okay do I stay here another night with the boys and not tell them about my birthday cause really they don't need to know or do I go home. But if I go home mom probably won't even be there , I'll have another lonely birthday . I'll text her later to tell her that I'm staying one more night here and that I'll be home tomorrow for sure. I walked out of the bathroom to Harrys room and put the sweater on his bed. I then walked back to the living room where the boys were chatting.
Bella- Guys I'll stay another night
All them - Yeah!
No one's POV
All of them sat there and chatted for a while being friendly. There came a knock on the door. Liam yelled for the person to come in. In walked Paul
Paul- Hey boys good morning to you and Bella. Hey it's almost the big day Bella
The boys turned and looked at Bella, she was glaring at Paul
Bella- Paul what are you talking about? (she got up and walked outside to the balcony, she didn't want to talk about her birthday)
Louis- What do you mean Paul , what big day?
Paul- Well that's not for me to tell you , maybe Bella will tell you.But anyways I came here to tell you all that I'm running out and Simon has left with the rest of the security , so if you need anything call us or ask the butler. Have a good day boys bye.
I was standing on the balcony, god Paul almost let it slip. The air is nice and warm here in California different from London. I gazed out to look at the water, it looked so refreshing. I felt a tap on my shoulder,I turned to see Lou standing behind me.
Lou- So your staying that's great
Bella- Yup I sure am
Where was the conversation going
Louis- So whats the big day?
Of course he was going to ask. I don't want to tell the boys,they might freak out and be like why didn't you tell us or they will be mad cause I didn't tell them.I didn't want to cause any more drama.God I'm the one that messes everything up gee.
Bella- Well you see the thing is
I didn't finish my sentence,I ran back inside to see all the boys starring at me. Lou came running in after me.
Lou- Come on Bella why won't you tell me or any of them
Bella- Well you see the thing is
I turned and tired to run to the front door but Niall pulled me into a hug. I tired to get out of his hug but man this boy was strong.
Bella- Niall let me go
Niall- Nope, only if you tell us what this big day is
Bella - Not going to happen, let me go
Bella-I'll bake you a pie
Zayn- Niall don't fall for it
Niall- Don't worry I won't
Bella-Well I'm not telling you
Niall- Then I'm not letting you go till you tell
Liam- Isn't that a little unnecessary , like what if you have to go to the bathroom or something Niall
Bell-Okay,Okay stop talking ,Niall let me go and I promise I will tell you
I stuck out my pinky finger to him but crossed my fingers behind my back,no way was I telling them about my birthday. Okay maybe the only reason I hate them is because I've never really have had one or I kind of don't like the fact that people are celebrating cause your older, like I'm only turning 17. Niall let go and grabbed my pinky , as soon as he let go I bolted out the front door down to the beach.I turned back to see Lou and Harry chasing me.Oh shit, I kept running but then I felt a set of arms tackle me to the ground , well that kind of hurt.
Bella- Okay ,okay you got me
Lou looked at me and Harry on the ground and started to laugh,he helped me and Harry up
Louis-NOW ,Bella are you going to tell us or are we going to have to throw you into the water?
Bella- You wouldn't dare
Louis- Try me
Harry grabbed me and through me over his shoulder, were they actually serious
Bella- Come on guys I just had these clothes washed
Harry- Sorry I'm going to do it if you don't tell us
Harry stepped closer to the water and counted down from 3
Bella- Okay I swear I'll tell you, just get away from the water
Louis- Haha good girl sis
Harry placed me down on my feet.Okay I could rather run again or tell them . Here goes nothing
Bella- The big day is tomorrow
Louis- And what's the big day
Bella- The big day is my birthday,okay!
What did I just do, like they would care, they probably thought this whole thing was stupid
Harry-Wait what your birthday, why didn't you want to tell us that
Bella- I didn't think you guys would care and who wants to celebrate getting older
Harry- Lou excuse me and Bella for a minute
He grabbed my hand and pulled me off to the side
I think I'am the one that knows the most about Bella now, even more then Louis.She told me about her true self last night. By her story she told me it sounded like she wasn't the richest person out there, maybe she's never even had a birthday before.
Harry- Why didn't you want to tell us?
Bella- Harry I just I..
Harry- Is it because you've never had a proper birthday celebration?
Bella- Yes I've never celebrated my birthday,big deal
Someone has an attitude awe
Harry- Bella it's okay, we can celebrate, we can get the butler to get a cake and balloons and (she cut me off)
Bella- I'd rather not celebrate at all Harry, I've never been the one to like the idea of birthdays okay
She turned and walked back to the house, Lou ran up to me
Louis- So what is this all about and her birthday is tomorrow?
Harry- Lets go get the boys I don't want to explain this 4 times
No ones POV
The two walked back to the house. The rest of the boys sat on the couch looking bored out of their minds. Liam was reading a book "The Giver" Zayn was on his phone and Niall was siting on the couch upside down. Bella sat outside on the balcony with the door closed. Harry and Louis sat on the floor in the middle of the couches. Liam looked up form his book.
Liam- So did you find out anything ?
Harry- Actually we did
Louis- Well tomorrows her birthday
Zayn- Why didn't she want to tell us
Harry- Well to tell you the truth, I don't know if she wants me to tell you or not but she's never had one
Niall- What, omg what kind of world are we living in ?
Zayn- Haha Niall calm down, Lets throw her a little one of just us
Harry- Not a good idea, see the thing is she doesn't want one
Liam- What, she doesn't want one that's crazy
Niall- You know we have to throw her one if she likes it or not
Louis- Ha I knew someone would say that
Liam- But what if she gets mad
Harry- Really that's what your worried about Liam, you should be worried that she's never had a birthday
Zayn- I'll make the call to Paul to get an ice-cream cake saying Happy Birthday Bell lots of love One direction and some balloons to.
Zayn got up and walked into the kitchen to make the call
Liam- I just don't want her getting mad at us thats all
Harry- Let's just not over do it, cause since it is her first one,what should we do?
Louis- Take her for a birthday present supper, I know a great place
Louis- Nando's of course, did you even have to ask. A couple of us can go at around 7 tomorrow and set up balloons and stuff at a table and then we can get them to bring out the cake when it's time
Niall- I like your choice but she told me she doesn't really want to go out in public right now where theres cameras
Harry- Come on no one will know were there, I'll tell Zayn to call and book the place for ourselves
Harry got up to go tell Zayn
Louis- I think it should just be us but what do you two think of inviting my girlfriend and Zayn's girlfriend
Liam- I think that's a good idea, she probably wants some girls that are friends
Niall- Yeah I think that's a good idea but will you boys excuse me I have to go talk to Bella
Niall got up and walked to the balcony door.
Okay I was going to tell her that I just wanted to be friends like her and Lou were nothing more. I opened the balcony door to see her laying on a fold out chair.
Niall-Bella can I talk to you?
Bella- Yeah sure take a seat
I sat in the chair next to her
Niall- So about yesterday, how Louis announced that us three boys had feelings for you
Niall- Well the thing is I do have feelings for you, but not in a way a lover would look at someone they like.I want to have what you and Louis have. I want to have that friendly friendship, were we can just goof off and have fun with out any of us falling for the other. Because I don't know if you had any feelings for me or anything but I truly think we should just be friends , good friends
Bella- To tell you the truth Niall, yeah I did have feelings for all three of you boys but that can't work out. I'm really happy about your offer because I really need another close friend right now. Trust me Niall you'll find the girl for you one day
Niall- And I promise you'll find the guy for you someday to
Bella- Thanks Niall, I have a question for you now
Niall- Yeah go a head
Bella-Did Harry tell all you guys about my birthday
Niall- Yeah he did, you know we really want to celebrate it with you
Bella- Yeah I'd rather not Niall
Niall- Okay, okay I won't force you into doing anything. I'm glad we had this talk, care to join me back inside
Bella- Sure why not
She got up form her chair and followed me inside
I swear we have just been sitting around all day doing nothing. The clock above the Tv read 6:00, we completely skipped lunch. I couldn't believe that Niall actually missed a lunch.I looked over to him but of course he was munching on some sort of snack. That chat I had will him earlier was nice. I now knew that me and Niall could be great friends and that was one boy off my list just like that. Niall was munching on his food, Liam was reading his book still, Zayn was on his phone I swear he's always on his phone and Harry and Lou were quietly talking. I was laying on the floor in the middle of the couches starring at the ceiling, I was bored out of my mind. Then everything went quiet I couldn't even hear Niall chomping on his food. That's when I felt him on top of me
Bella- Niall what are you doing?
The other boys were giving us strange looks
Bella- Guys it's cool me and Niall are great friends now but really Niall what are you doing?
Niall- You looked bored, so I did something random
Bella- Well this is very random, but I'm still bored
Niall- Well guys lets do something cause I'm bored to
He rolled off me and we both sat up looking at the others
Louis- We could always go down to the beach,go swimming
Zayn- Yeah I'll pass
Harry- Come on Zayn it will be fine
Liam- One problem Bella doesn't have any swim wear
Niall- Good point
Bella-I can just sit on the beach with Zayn and watch you guys swim, it's better then just sitting here and I don't feel like getting my clothes wet again
Louis- Okay,boys lets go change.Bella and Zayn we will meet you down there make sure you two grab beach towels
They left to there rooms and Zayn grabbed him and myself a beach towel. We walked down to the beach together in our jeans and T-shirts, shoeless. He set both towels out for us.He sat down and pulled out his phone, of course haha and I laid down closing my eyes. Hey I could at least tan my face and arms. I heard the rest of the boys come running down the hill and into the water. It sounded like they were enjoying there time, splashing in the water running around. I felt my self slowing drifting to asleep ,it's okay I don't burn.
Me and the mates were having a good solid 2 hours of running in the water and swimming while the sun was setting . I looked up to the sand to see Zayn talking on his phone, probably to Perrie and Bell who was curled up in a ball sleeping on her towel. I walked out of the water and grabbed my towel drying myself off and then walked over to Bella picking her up. Zayn asked me what I was doing I told him I was taking her back to the house to sleep. I carried her to the house and inside. I walked to my purple room and put her on my bed. I then went over to my dresser and grabbed a new pair of boxers, my white cut off and nike black shorts. I changed quickly throwing my clothes in the hamper, I looked back to Bell. She looked so peaceful, I wanted to hold her tight and tell her everything was going to be alright. I wanted to tell her she was safe with us , she could tell us anything and I wanted to keep my promise to her , to always be there for her. I don't want to break that ever. I walked over to the bed and bent down so I could look at her closed eyes, Just thinking about her eyes. They were the sweetest of brown you could Imagine. Then her eyes slowly flickered open,ought oh. She sat up a bit and looked around.
Bella- How did I get here Liam?
Liam- I carried you here cause you fell asleep on the beach
Bella- Oh , what time is it
Liam-8:15, you can go back to sleep unless you're hungry I can make you something
Bella-No I'm fine I'll just go back to sleep
She got up and moved off the bed
Liam- I thought you were going to go back to sleep
Bella- I'am , I'll go to Louis's room or Niall's maybe Zayn's
Liam- You can sleep here if you want Bella
Bella- Heres the thing Liam,Niall confessed to me that we should just be friends and I agreed with him we have only feelings as friends. Since you or Harry haven't said anything like Niall did I think you two still have feelings for me , am I right?
Liam- Yes okay you are
Bella- Well I'll admit I have feelings for the both of you still and I don't want to wreck anything between any of you so I don't think I should sleep in here.I'm going to go to Lou's room if he asks why I'm there tell him for me please
With that she walked out my door. She still liked me that was one of the greatest things Ive ever heard , unfortunately though she still liked Harry to. Why do feelings have to be so hard. I remember that one time when we got asked what we would do if we fell for the same girl and we all shook it off like it would never happen. Well we were wrong
No ones POV
The rest of the boys came in and Bella slept soundly in Lou's room. They each made themselves food to eat then hit the hay. The boys were looking forward to surprising Bella tomorrow, but would she be happy about all this.
