'Okay, lads, it's almost 8.' I said, checking my watch. 'They'll be here any minute now.'
I was glad that Allie agreed to have a party. The boys and I usually don't get to party with people who haven't acted in a movie or released an album or who aren't famous. I've got to admit, I've really missed having a normal party with normal people. Parker, Tris and Allie are funny, weird and really friendly, which is a lot like us, so it didn't take much time for us to bond. We were lucky to have met them today, otherwise we'd be spending the whole evening watching movies or playing Scrabble, which I kind of suck at.
Besides, I think a few of the lads - namely, Harry and Niall - like Allie.
'I'm done with the food.' Harry said. He gestured towards the kitchen table, where there were soft drinks, a few cans of beer, McDonald's, and Nandos. 'Perfect.' I said. I know for a fact that Allie loves Nandos.
'Here's the music.' Zayn handed me his iPod. 'I have really good taste in music.' He winked at me and sauntered off before I could tell him anything.
'I've got the movies.' Liam handed me a few DVDs. I flipped through them. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, The Conjuring, Toy Story? I raised an eyebrow at Liam, but he gave me his puppy dog eyes so I just sighed and handed them back to him.
I turned expectantly to Niall. He blushed and grinned at me cheekily. 'I've got the moves.' He said, doing the Lasso move.
'Sure you do.' I grinned back. 'Okay, boys. We're all set. Now all we have to do is wait.'
'Who made you leader anyway?' Liam asked, crashing onto the couch.
'What kind of question is that? You don't question your leader.' I pushed him off the couch and stretched out on it, yawning. He glared at me and sat on the armchair instead.
'Whoops, sorry. I was going to sit there.' Harry said, pushing Liam out and sitting there instead. He looked at Liam with a really cheeky grin on his face. Liam just sighed and sat next to Niall.
'You can sit here, mate.' Niall said patronizingly. We laughed.
There was a knock at the door. Harry and Niall immediately stood. I smiled at them, and they blushed.
'Somebody's got a crush.' I sang, standing and walking to the door.
Louis walked ahead of us, while we followed him. He opened the door, and before us stood Parker, Tris and Allie. They were panting and looked like they had just run a hundred kilometres. Allie was wearing a black cardigan over a black cropped top and blue shorts. She didn't look as pretty as usual because she was panting and there was sweat on her forehead, but she didn't seem to mind. Even Parker and Tris didn't look as great as they did when we first met them, but all three of them seemed to not care. That made me like them even more than I already did.
'You look like you were just chased by the paparazzi.' Louis commented. Allie raised an eyebrow at him, still panting. 'I've had experience, believe me.' He continued.
'Well, no, we weren't chased by the paparazzi. Although I think someone took a picture of us while we were waiting at the door.' Parker pouted. 'They didn't warn me, though. If they had, I would've posed.'
'Welcome to our world, mate.' I said. The three of them came inside and Louis closed the door behind us.
'So why are you panting?' Liam asked.
'We raced each other.' Allie said.
'Oh.' Niall smiled. 'From the store? Lou and Harry always do that.'
'Nope. We raced each other from our place to here.' Tris said, leaning against the wall and clutching her side. 'Ow. Stitch, stitch.'
'I'll get you guys some Coke.' Zayn said, and walked into the kitchen. We went to the living room, and the three of them instantly collapsed on the couch.
'You ran five kilometres?' I asked. Louis's mouth was hanging open.
Allie shrugged. 'Not a big deal.'
'That is so cool!' Lou was literally jumping up and down on the balls of his feet. 'I've never run a whole five kilometres.' His face turned slack. 'I don't exactly want to either.'
They laughed. 'Well, it turned out to be great. I think a lot of your neighbours were disturbed by our whooping.'
'Doesn't matter. We're only here for a month.' Liam said. He sat down next to Parker. 'So who won?'
Parker's grin instantly turned sour. 'Allie.' He muttered. Tris and Allie high-fived and grinned cheekily at us.
'Girl power!' They shouted. Parker rolled his eyes and continued to pout.
Zayn came back with the Cokes and handed it to them. They drank it faster than Lou drinks beer, which is really fast.
We all sat down on the couch. It was a bit crowded, but it was comfy. Tris was on Parker's lap. Liam sat next to Parker, followed by Zayn, Niall, Allie, me and Lou. It was a miracle how we fit in there.
'Okay. So what do you lads have planned for me?' Allie asked.
We turned to Lou. He tried not to look important and bossy, but it clearly didn't work. 'First, MOVIES!'
