~Waiting for a girl like you…

The night shines, it’s getting hot on my shoulders
I don’t mind, this time it doesn’t matter
Cause your friends, they look good but you’re better
Don’t you know all night
I’ve been waiting for a girl like you to come around

Rosalie Clarke POV

I scowled up at the night sky above me. It was so beautiful, the stars sparkling, casting their little lights all over the lake, dancing as the water rippled under the small breeze that hung in the air. Why was I scowling, you ask? Well, because I had no idea who to choose. I had a crush on both Liam Payne and Zayn Malik. And I knew they both had a thing for me. What was I to do? They were both important friends of mine, and I didn’t want to break the other’s heart. And I didn’t want to ruin their life as One Direction. How could I come out of this with both still my friends?
We had all decided to go on a camping trip, something ridiculous at this time of year. I mean, come on! Going out camping in the middle of friggin winter? Who does that? Apparently One Direction do…

It was cold out, so I decided to stay in the little cabin that Zayn’s parents had rented out for the group for the winter. It wasn’t too large, only big enough to house the six of us. We had all brought sleeping bags and winter clothes, but that did nothing to keep the heat in and the cold out. It was freezing, even behind the confines of the wooden and double-bricked walls of the cabin, the fire sitting in the corner and on, piles of logs slowly but surely being fed into the flames to keep the warmth from stopping. There had been a snow storm last night, and white had blanketed the forest around us. Why did I even agree coming to this? Oh, that’s right. Because Zayn asked and I just can’t say no to him…

I’ve been friends with Zayn for quite a long time now. He was always quiet at school, as was I, so somehow in third year we had gravitated towards each other, becoming the best of friends. We always spent days off in the music room playing our way through all the instruments that sat there. That was when Zayn began singing. He was always writing up songs or doing covers of other musical artists. Since I was also musical, mainly piano but also some singing as well, I decided to join him. We’d often spend our frees down in the music rooms, but if they were taken we’d go off together past the school boundary and out of bounds.

Under the lights tonight, I turned around
And you stole my heart, just one look
And I saw your face, I fell in love
Take a minute girl, steal my heart tonight

Just one look, yeah
I’m waiting for a girl like you

Zayn Malik POV

I noticed Rosalie was freezing. The little skin that was showing under her piles of blankets and sweaters was covered in goosebumps, her chin was trembling a little.
“Rosalie, are you alright?” I asked, plopping myself down next to her. She scowled at me.
“Why did I even agree coming here?” she asked me. I shrugged.
“Because I’m so sexy you couldn’t get enough of me.” She growled and smacked me on the arm.
“Pfft. And you invited me because I’m the hottest chick you know, and you just had to show me off to the guys. I mean, look at Harry would ya? He won’t stop staring at me…” I chuckled to her. Harry was off to the side, sitting with his guitar in the corner, holding his own jam session. He hadn't so much as looked at her once…

But there was a reason for that. He knew how I felt about her, how I wanted to ask her while we were out here, away from the prying eyes of the London paparazzi. I preferred this quiet environment. The solitude that the snowy forest outside entailed enabled me and the other boys every kind of freedom that we could not expect to gain in the city, where we were often pulled over on the street by people who recognized us. Don’t get me wrong, I love the fans. Their support means everything to me and the boys. Its just that sometimes we need a break from it all…
Which brings me back to the topic at hand. Rosalie Clarke. The girl of my dreams, the girl I grew up with and loved with all of my heart. Harry knows she’s off limits, as do the other guys, but still I see Liam getting closer and closer to her each and every day that passes, and I don’t like it.

I’m weaker, my words fall and they hit the ground
All life come on here, don’t you fail me now
I start to say, I think I love you but I make no sound
Oh cause all all my life
I’ve been waiting for a girl like you to come around

Liam Payne POV

It was nice and quiet out here, just how I liked it. It was so much fun being with the guys, especially Harry, Niall and Louis. They were all outgoing and crazy, and reminded me to enjoy life and cease the day. However, there was Zayn and also Rosalie sharing this cabin with me.
Rosalie Clarke. I knew she was off-limits. I knew she was Zayn’s best friend. And I knew that he planned to ask her out tonight, once we’d stuck on a movie to fill in the spare hours before we had to sleep. But I couldn’t help but be attracted to her, and she wasn’t exactly indifferent towards me either. In fact, she comes to me first if Zayn’s gone out to fetch firewood or ducked into the kitchen for a drink or a snack. Out of all the guys, I’m the one she frequents most often, aside from Zayn. Does she like me? Only time will tell.

Rosalie is an attractive girl. She has a kind, infectious personality; she’s as outgoing and loud as Louis but also has a softer, more reserved side like Zayn. I’ve often heard that she’s slightly rebellious, but I’ve never seen her acting up. She has amazing, long blonde hair and the most stunning, ocean blue eyes I’ve ever seen. She’s tall and fit, with a cheerleader’s build. How could someone not fall for her? You can’t blame me for this attraction. No one can. I just wish I had the self-control that Harry seemingly has… he hasn’t gone all naked on us once this trip! But I guess that could be partly due to the cold weather…

Under the lights tonight, I turned around

Rosalie Clarke POV

It was almost dinner time, so I decided that today I would show off my cooking skills to the guys and actually cook up a decent meal. There’s only so much of Zayn’s rubbish cooking that one can stand…
I pulled out a saucepan and began peeling potatoes, cutting them up into strips and tossing them in to be fried, like homemade chips. There was mincemeat in the fridge that sat in the kitchen, so I decided I’d make some half-decent hamburgers for the guys. They all loved their meat, that much was clearly obvious. I tossed together some breadcrumbs, the mince and a few eggs with some chopped up onion in a bowl. I ground it all together until it reached a homogeneous consistency.

I spooned the mixture out onto a clean chopping board and split it up, rolling each handful into a ball and flattening it out with my hands. I kneaded the mixture until the balls looked nice and flat. Once I had finally decided they looked good enough I stuck them in a fry-pan, letting them sit to cook for a few minutes on each side. I grabbed some bread and stuck it into the toaster, timing it so that everyone would have their meal at pretty much the same time. I grabbed some lettuce, tomato, and a can of beetroot out of the fridge and prepped them so that the boys could pick out what they liked best on their burgers. I stuck slices of cheese on the cooking mince patties so that it melted slightly at the edges. So far, so good. Once that was done, all I had to do was wait patiently.
“Dinner’s ready!” I called, after a few minutes. I served up the toast on each plate, lifting the patties with a spatula and placing them on top. I grabbed the chips out of their oil bath and split them equally on each of the six plates.

“Wow, looks great Rose,” Niall smiled at me, taking a plate. He grabbed the tomato sauce and began squirting it on his plate to his heart’s content.
“Mhmm,” Harry agreed, taking a plate. “Zayn’s a lucky man to have a girlfriend like you.” I blushed at him.
“Uhm. Sorry, but I’m not Zayn’s girlfriend…” I mumbled to him. He merely chuckled.
“Not yet,” he whispered in my ear. “But it’ll happen eventually… I went even redder. Harry knew just what to say to push my buttons.
“Oh, shut up. Just stick on a god-damned movie!” I cussed at him as he left the room.
“Whatever.” Next was Louis, Liam and Zayn to pick up their plates. Liam shot me a very friendly smile before sauntering off. He had a nice smile… But then Zayn was before me, looking at me with the most love-struck look I’ve ever seen.

There is no other place that I would rather be
Right here with you tonight
As we lay on the ground I put my arms around you
And we can stay here tonight
There’s so much I wanna say
I wanna say

Under the lights tonight, I turned around
And you stole my heart, just one look
And I saw your face, I fell in love
Take a minute girl, steal my heart tonight

Zayn Malik POV

“Rosalie, I love you. I would really like it if you went out with me. Please say yes!” Finally, the words had managed to make their way from my lips. I had been meaning to ask her out for months now, but this seemed like the most opportune moment.
“Z…Z…Zayn… I d…didn’t know you felt that way a…about me!” she stuttered. I smiled at her.
“Of course I do, Rose. You’re my best friend and I just… want us to be something more.” She gave me the warmest of smiles.
“Zayn, I love you too. I guess you’ve stolen my heart.” I kissed her gently on the forehead, and began singing the chorus to one of our songs.

“Under the lights tonight, I turned around
And you stole my heart, just one look
And I saw your face, I fell in love
Take a minute girl, steal my heart tonight.”

I kissed her passionately on the lips and led her out to the main room. We snuggled under a blanket together, both eating the wonderful meal she had created.
“Oh, see! I told you he was gonna ask you out!” Harry shot Rosalie a wink. I nodded to him. She blushed.
“Yep, you were right, Harry!”

Liam Payne POV

So Zayn had finally asked her. Yes, I was a little jealous, but I was also very happy for them. They looked very cute together, and I couldn’t help but smile at the look on her face. She was ecstatic, both surprised and elated by this turn of events that couldn’t be expressed in words. A beautiful girl like her deserved a beautiful partner to match, and I knew that Zayn and Rosalie were perfect for each other. He was nice, he would treat her right, and that was all I could ask for.

Just one look, yeah
