Summer Loving

Fox and her friends, Cara and Laura are having the time of their lives in Quebec at Fox's parents' cottage. But when five boys arrive at their doorstep their whole summer turns upside down... Niall likes Fox, Harry likes Fox, betrayals and heartbreak lies before everyone.


3. Morning swims and Night time songs

Fox's POV

The next morning, I woke up to to the sound of my obnoxiously loud alarm clock.

"Arghh..." I muttered, then reached over to hit the snooze button. I missed.


So I got up and pressed the button very carefully, to avoid anymore mistakes. My long brown hair was tied in a disgruntled ponytail and I was wearing red polka-dotted pjs. I looked at myself in the mirror. I looked like a mess but this wasn't a fashion show it was my own house.

I trudged down the stairs loudly, earning an annoyed grunt from Cara's room, and decided to make some breakfast.

The kitchen was only a small walk from the stairs and I peered inside because I heard soft whistling. I saw a boy at the stove whistling the theme-song for Fresh Prince of Bel-air. Who the hell is in my kitchen??

Oh. Right. Niall.

How the heck did I forget? But anyways, I decided to sneak up on him. I crept up behind him noiselessly and whispered; "Boo."

He jumped up in the air and jerked around to see who it was. I grinned.

"What was that for?!" He yelled softly.

"Fun." I replied.

He gave me a funny look then smiled mischievously, "I'll get you back for this!"

"Alrighty then... But just remember....." He raised his eyebrow at me.

"That your pancake is burning." I said cheerfully.

"Wha----? OH CRAP!" He swivelled around at took the pancake off the frying pan. I laughed and said, "thanks though... You know, for the pancakes."

I am so awkward, it scares me sometimes.

"Your welcome!" He said.

I smiled warmly and sat down at the island, keeping him company while everyone was asleep (Or in Cara's case trying to fall BACK asleep.)

"So you guys are off your tour for the summer?" I asked.

"Yup, then we start back up in the fall. I can't wait!" He replied, passing me a plate with two chocolate chip pancakes, and a bowl filled with strawberries.

"Mmm, why thank you! How did you know I love chocolate chip?"

"I guessed. And who doesn't?" He replied.

"True, that is a true statement." Then I giggled.

He sat down next to me and we started to eat while talking. About 20 minutes later Cara and Harry ran down the stairs and took some pancakes. Then came Laura, Zayn, Louis and Liam.

"Mmmm.... Niall, you make good pancakes!" Laura exclaimed.

"Thanks! Old family recipe." He winked.

"Yeah, that took half the food in the kitchen!" I mumbled.

"Oh yeah, and I might've snacked a little..."

We all laughed.

"Hey! We should all go swimming!" Cara said.

"Great idea! Are we all down for that?" I asked.

I heard a chorus of yes'a then one no. I looked at Zayn.

"Hey, you can sit on the dock and watch? I mean, majority rules right?" I asked, more of a statement than a question.

He groaned but we all rushed upstairs to put our swimsuits on. Oh wait. They didn't have any. Crap.

"Guys! Aren't you forgetting something?"

They looked at me inquisitively, "you don't have any bathing suits.....?"

They smiled, "Don't worry!" Harry said, "we know what to do."

I swear, if they go skinny dipping I will run to Alaska. Seriously.

Anyways, I put on a solid bright red bikini (I wear a lot of red as you've probably noticed. It's my favourite colour.) and headed downstairs. Cara wasn't ready but Laura was waiting in her green and yellow bikini at the foot of the stairs.

"Where is Cara?" She asked.

"Oh she's still---"

"Here!" Cara yelled as she bounded down the stairs in a black bikini with blue stripes.

Good. We were all here except for the boys who had already gone out. So we exited the house and ran down to the water and immediately jumped right in splashing the boys in their faces.

"Hey!" They all shouted in unison. We chuckled and I swam on my back, admiring the clear blue sky. Today was beautiful, not too hot, not too cold, perfect summer day. But I was interrupted by the sound of a commending water fight: boys against girls. We were out numbered, but strong. Haha, that was so dramatic. But we splashed each other, and acted like 3 year olds for the rest of the afternoon. I honestly thought it was the best afternoon of my life. We eventually ate supper, and decided to have a bonfire. Luckily, we had a guitar in our basement (yes the cottage has a basement) and we all sung campfire songs.

Niall's POV

I sat on a large log strumming away at the guitar Fox loaned me. The fire was nice and warm and we sand many songs. I looked over at Fox. She looked up from her s'more and smiled at me. She had a beautiful smile. I swear, it lit up the whole world. I grinned back at her. I noticed Harry also looking at her. I thought he had a thing for Cara! So why would he be looking at her? A sudden wave of jealously rolled over my stomach as she grinned and waved at him. He did the same thing back.


But my thoughts were interrupted by Fox. She started to sing.

You're insecure, don't know what for, you're turning heads when you walk through the d-o-o-oor,

Don't need makeup, to cover up, being the way that you are is enough,

I laughed and started to sing with her while I played my guitar.

Everyone else in the room can see it, everyone else but you,

Baby you light up my world like nobody else the way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed,

But when you smile at the ground it ain't hard to tell, you don't know oh oh,

You don't know you're beautiful!

Fox was awesome. I went over and sat next to her because she was on the log alone.... And maybe I just wanted to sit next to her... But Harry have me a dirty look and I was taken aback. Did he actually like her?

"Hey." She said, and smiled at me.

"Hey!" I replied, and, unable to resist, I smiled back.


"Nothing much. Just you know, eating a marshmallow or two..."

She gave me a look, "how many did you eat?!" She asked.

"Um, not a lot! entire bag......"

She laughed, hard.

Harry looked over at us talking and smiling, I could tell he wasn't too happy. Oh well. Sucks for him.
