When I woke the next morning it was to my phone buzzing.
I was disappointed to find Niall's body absent from the bed, but I suppose that was a little silly seeing as we don't even have any relationship of any kind, let alone one where he should stay in bed with me
When I picked up my phone, I smiled at the text
Unknown: wake up teddy bear, breakfast is ready :3
I quickly added Niall into my contacts, and the texted him back
Z: you got it cuddle bunny xD
Z: you wearing clothes?
N: nope, pervert :p
I got out of the bed and headed down in my boxers. Before I managed to make it to Niall, Perrie grabbed ahold of me, hugging me
"Morning" she mumbled
"Morning, babe" I muttered, disappointed that I couldn't have seen Niall first thing this morning
I let her go, and headed to the kitchen with her beside me. Niall gave me a small smile that I returned with a bigger one
He just laughed, shaking his head, and I began to feel a little awkward as the other girls began to stare at me
I gripped Perrie's hand, and served us both breakfast. Niall stood beside me
"So, how was... Whatever you were doing with Perrie?" Niall asked
"Huh? I didn't do anything"
He gave me a look that said I was lying
"Honestly, she just hugged me when I got downstairs"
"She said she was going to wake you, and then she was gone for 30 minutes, that's why I texted you"
"Oh well... She wasn't in our room"
Niall's cheeks flamed at the term, and mine did the same
"That's not... What I meant" I choked out
"No, I know" he smiled awkwardly "slip of the tongue"
We all left Perrie's, and I instantly offered Niall a ride home. He denied it at first, but after I tried a couple more times, he got onto the back of my bike
"So what do you do when it rains?" Niall asked
"I put on a jacket" I chuckled
He gave me a playful smack on the back of my shoulder, laughing
He gave me directions to his house, pointing beside me to show me where to go.
I had asked him if he wanted to speed and after getting a yes, I'd revved the engine before doing so. He'd held onto me so tightly, his arms around my waist, as he laughed against my back.
He'd definitely loved it, and that made me proud
He got off my bike, and I did the same, propping it up and leaning against it
"Bye, Zayn" Niall chuckled
"You know, we could always hang out today" I smiled
His smile faltered "I... Not today, sorry Zayn"
"That's okay" I forced a smile "during the week or something, we could chill at mine and get pizza"
"Sounds good to me" he nodded
"Your mom won't mind you getting a ride home on a motorcycle?"
"She'll mind" Niall laughed
"Don't worry about it" he waved it off "it was fun"
"Maybe we can do it again. But next time, we can ride for hours"
"I'd like that a lot. Thank you, Zayn"
"You're welcome, I'll see you tomorrow"
"Enjoy your day"
I started up my engine again, and reversed out of the driveway, making my way back home.
Yesterday was definitely one of the best moments of my life. Not only did I get to talk to Niall, but I got to cuddle with him too. And today I got to take him home on my bike.
Why couldn't life just be easy? If my school wasn't so homophobic, I wouldn't have to date Perrie. If I wasn't dating Perrie, I would've kissed Niall till I couldn't breathe anymore
I smiled at the thought, but sighed when I remembered that it would never happen.
There's no way Niall would ever like someone like me, gay or not.
I wanted to tell him I was gay too, so badly. But I couldn't, it would change everything we just started having
I now had one problem... Louis.
