I watched the blond sit with his lunch, a brunette soon coming to join him.
They spoke with smiles, and I couldn't help but notice the ring on her wedding finger. Maybe they were engaged?
All I could feel was an undeniable jealously towards what I was seeing. The girl pointed at me, the blond beauty turned to look at me, his bright blue eyes meeting my full brown ones
He offered me a smile, one that I didn't return.
I noticed the girl talking to him, unable to ignore how amazed he looked while watching me. He gulped, making me smirk.
What a cutie
Both the blond who went by Niall and the brunette bitch Gabi from my art class stood up, I began to lose interest
I suddenly noticed that they didn't hug, nor make any contact. They said a few words and she left. Niall went to the food line, and I got to my feet, getting in a different line.
I ordered a made sushi box and was pissed to find my seat taken by the time I had paid.
I guess I can talk to Niall, it's now or never
I walked over and stood in front of him, watching him look up
"Hey" I said calmly
"Hi" he lit up brightly
"Is your girlfriend still sitting here?"
"That wasn't my girlfriend" he laughed "I don't swing that way"
"Expecting your boyfriend then?" I asked
"No boyfriend" he smiled with a blush "it's just me and the empty seat, you're welcome to sit"
"Niall, it's a pleasure to meet you" he shook my hand "I love your painting by the way"
"You have more than one?" His eyes seemed to shine in excitement
"I do" I smiled "I paint a lot"
"You'll have to show me, I bet they're amazing" he grinned at me, a goofy look on his face that I couldn't help but find attractive
He's really smiley though... It's different
"I'll do so after break" I told him "I can show you the ones put up around the campus and maybe my own personal ones some time?"
"Where are those?" He asked curiously
"Wow, you have a studio?"
"Not that kind of studio" I said seriously "I live there"
"Oh" he then grinned "sure, sounds awesome"
"You know um... I saw you looking at my painting this morning" I got out
He blushed "oh... Sorry I took a photo"
"No, I know" I said quickly "it's okay. I'm glad you like my painting, I like yo- I-I like it too, I mean"
He laughed cutely, his laugh was very loud. It was an odd laugh, he covered his mouth to muffle the sound which I thought was kind of adorable
"Okay, I've completely given it away" I said seriously "so I'm gonna get to the point. Do you... Want to go out sometime?"
"Where are we going?" Niall asked softly
"We can go to the movies or dinner, or to my studio... That's up to you"
"Is this like a date?"
"I mean, I want it to be" I said seriously
He blushed "that sounds wonderful"
"I guess after this we can just go somewhere"
"Your studio sounds like fun" he smiled playfully
"Yeah?" I smiled, feeling my pants tighten
"Yeah" he placed a hand over mine
I looked down, shocked to find such a soft hand. I grabbed it, letting my own hand touch over the smooth skin
He blushed deeply, tugging away at first. But I held tighter, lacing our fingers.
When I looked over at him, he was smiling kindly, his blush had already spread down his neck and over his chest
"Z-Zayn..." He stammered
"You are so beautiful" I told him, my voice coming hard
"Thank you" he spoke softly
