It was literally a 10 minute walk from my flat. Ally walked in about 5 or so minutes after I did, which had given me time to grab us a table and a hot coffee. She smiled at me as she pulled the hood off her head allowing her red curls to tumble out. The shop was cozy and homy. It was very modern. The walls were lined with fairy lights and the light grey walls matched well with the grey couches and the coral and mint green beanbag chairs.
I had grabbed us a table in the corner, by the window. A clique of teenage girls were staring at us and I didn't understand why. I just decided to shake it off.
"How are you doing Ally?" I asked while sipping my latte.
"Pretty good for the most part. My fiancé's never really home because of his job, but he's home for a month so we're having kind of a party tomorrow if you want to stop by." She smiled at me.
I wanted to say yes to Ally and be able to spend time with her and meet her mysterious fiancé, but I had already promised Harry I would go out with him.
"What does your fiancé do anyway?" I asked curiously.
"He's a singer."
"Cool. I would love to come, but I had already promised another friend of mine that we'd go out. I'll try and stop by though, if get the chance." I smiled at her as she wrote down the address of her place on the napkin and handed it to me.
It was just after an hour when my phone beeped.
From: Sexy L 😏
Are you back yet?? I need you now!!
To: Sexy L 😏
Keep it in your pants.
"Who's that?" Ally asked curiously leaning over the table.
"Just a friend." I said hiding my phone
"What time is it?" She asked.
I looked down at my phone.
"A little after 6."
"Damn! I gotta go!"
We both jumped up from the table, slipped out jackets back on, grabbed our bags, and quickly ran out the door.
When I finally got back to my flat I was cold and wet. I quickly took a hot shower and got into my green pyjama short shorts and a black sports bra. I made a salad for dinner and opened up my laptop. I checked my tumblr and Twitter and my feed was blowing up with pictures of Louis and his "mystery girl" , it didn't take long to figure out those were taken this afternoon and I was the mystery girl. It was strange seeing what people had to say. Some couldn't care less and others thought I was the literal reincarnation of evil. My tumblr had showed similar things. My feed was full of photos.
To: Sexy L 😏
We are blowing up my feed. 😂
From: Sexy L 😏
You look hot!!! 😍. Just ignore the comments, fans can be particular bitchy. No one has found your page yet, have they?
To: Sexy L 😏
Thanks and no... it's just the trend... They don't know my name, but...
From: Sexy L 😏
That's good. What is your Twitter name anyway...?
To: Sexy L 😏
That's for me to know and you to find out.
In a less than a minute there was already someone banging down my door. I knew it was him, I sighed and opened it.
"What are you doing?" I asked shaking my head. He had opened his mouth to say something, but he just stared, it was in that moment I realised I was in a sports bra and short shorts.
"Give me a minute." I gasped and practically slammed the door, embarrassed. I re-opened the door dressed in fuzzy green pyjama pants and a tight black t-shirt. I stared at him for a moment. He was in navy blue pyjama pants and had neglected to wear a shirt or shoes.
"I guess we're even now. Can I come in?" He laughed and brushed past me in the doorway not even bothering for a response from me.
We sat on the couch and talked for a few hours. I told him about my family and my life back in America and why I had left. It hit midnight quicker than expected and I was out like a light, my head lay pressed against Louis's bare chest. I felt him re-adjust me to where I was lying next to him, drifting off to sleep himself.
I woke up the next morning, still lying next to him. I had wrapped my arms around his torso and my head was laying on his abs. I curled myself into his warmth, I was going to stand by my promise to myself, this was not going to go any farther until I knew him better. I slowly began to drift back off into sleep.
I woke up a few hours later, alone. I looked at the clock and it read 10:30 a.m. I looked around for Harry and smelled bacon coming from the kitchen. I walked in and saw Louis standing over the stove, shirtless, cooking.
"Morning." I yawned stretching and took a seat at my table.
"Morning." He laughed as he brought me a plate of eggs and bacon and a glass of orange juice.
"Are you coming with me to Harry's party today?" He asked sitting next to me.
"Yeah. I might have to leave early though, my friend is having a party tonight too.
"Don't leave me." He pouted, frowning at me.
"Might. I said might." I laughed and ruffled his hair.
"Okay. I'm gonna go back upstairs and get myself ready. I'm come back down to get you in two hours and pack swimmers. He has an indoor and outdoor pool." He smiled before standing. He stood there for a moment before leaving, I think he was unsure of what to do.
I didn't take me long to get ready. I showered quickly and braided my hair into a fishtail braid, exposing my tattoo.I slipped on a backless, blue top and a pair of black cut off shorts with my white converse. I finished my makeup and grabbed my strapless, black bikini out of my drawer.
Louis was there at my door, two hours exactly. I smiled and grabbed my bag and locked my door and we headed down. Niall joined us in the lobby and we all got into Louis's Nissan. Louis had insisted I ride shotgun and Niall didn't say anything. It was a nice car ride, both of the guys were talking like brothers and continued to pull me into the conversation.
I stared at the massive house in front of me as we pulled into the drive. I could see a pool, a tennis court, and a gorgeous garden. Expensive cars lined the drive. I felt kind of out of place.
"How big is this thing Louis?" I asked nervously.
"I'm not quite sure, Harry does like a party, but..."
"That's the biggest understatement of the year." Niall chimed in.
Two boys greeted us at the door. I recognised them as Harry Styles and Liam Payne, the other two members of One Direction. Louis smiled as he introduced me to the other guys.
"Come in. You have to meet my fiancé Allyson." Harry said ushering us into the mansion. Recognition flashed in my eyes as Ally came into view. This has to be coincidence.
"Blake? What are you doing here?" She asked confused.
"Um, I'm here with Louis and Niall. I live in their building." I laughed and hugged her.
"Don't tell me you two know each other?" Liam laughed.
"Yeah. Ally's my best friend." I smiled releasing her from my hug.
"Wow. Small world." Harry laughed wrapping his arm around Ally's waist. We all headed into Harry's massive backyard where people were lounging by the Olympic sized pool with beers in their hands at 2 in the afternoon. I slipped out for a moment and changed into my bathing suit. I rejoined the group wearing only my shirt over my swimmers. I pulled my shirt off and tossed it onto one of the beach chairs and turned around and saw Louis staring.
"You should really take your shirt off more often." He laughed. I rolled my eyes and smiled walking to the diving board.
"Don't hurt yourself B!" Ally called laughing as I stepped onto the high dive. I walked to the front of the board and peered down before backing up to the back of the board, I was about 20ft in the air and the pool went to about 15 ft deep.
"It's okay to be scared Blake! You can come down if you want!" Louis called out. I could see a look of concern flash across his face.
"I'm not scared! Harry could you clear people out of the pool for a second. They'll want to see this!" I called out. I saw Harry gesture people and the all crowded around the edge of the pool. I smiled as I started running and stretched my hands up and doing a back handspring off the diving board. My hands wrapped around my ankles and I pulled my legs over my head into a tuck and did a triple back tuck before straightening out and ending in a dive. I swam back up to the surface and was greeted with a loud applause and woots. I swam over to Louis and the others who all stood in shock and awe.
"How did you..." Louis said practically speechless. I cut him off.
"Competitive gymnastics and cheerleading back in the states." I smiled pulling myself up out of the pool.
"Damn girl! You just keep getting better and better." Louis laughed wrapping a towel around me.
"What's got you in such a good mood Lou?" Harry smiled, handing him a beer.
"Nothing." He lied, glancing at me.
Ally grabbed my wrist and brought me over to the bar and got us drinks.
"What's going on between you two?" Ally asked urgently.
"Nothing." I replied sipping my cherry bomber.
"You mean nothing yet." She added, laughing.
"Shut up!" I laughed, playfully punching her in the arm. "Why didn't you tell me you were engaged to Harry Fucking Styles?"
"Because..." She smiled as we rejoined the boys.
I noticed a group of guys staring at me. They were all cat calling and wolf whistling. They were obviously drunk. I turned away and looked at Louis, who didn't even flinch. He placed a hand on my bare back which made me jump back.
"Cold!" I gasped. Louis laughed and pulled me into him. I looked down at our hands. He had intertwined his fingers in mine. His hand was so much bigger than mine, but they fit perfectly together. I smiled.
He continued to walk around, as if he was showing me off.
After a while, he slipped off and reappeared in minutes wearing black swim trunks. He jumped in laughing. I sat on the edge of the pool for a while, my legs dangling in the water.
Louis had forced himself in between my legs and wrapped his arms around my waist and pulled me in. The water was warm. I smiled as I wrapped my arms around his neck and my legs around his waist. I know I said I would wait until I knew him better, but being this close to him was making it so damn hard. Everything he did turned me on. Our faces were less than two inches apart, our eyes locked. His breath was warm. He pushed me against the wall of the pool. I let my legs fall and stood. He made the first move pressing his warm lips against mine, taking the lead. I parted my lips, allowing his tongue to slip in and just went with it. I felt his hands slide down back and onto my butt. I tangled my fingers in his hair. I felt him harden against me and I pulled away, taking a little breather.
"Think again Louis." I said breathlessly.
"Sorry." He smirked.
"That's fine. I'm sticking to my word and getting to know you better, before we...you know...." He cut me off as he pressed his lips against me again and was slowly trailing down kissing my neck and collarbone.
A throat cleared behind me making us jump a bit, Louis was still gripping my waist tightly. I bent my head back to see Allyson standing behind us smiling, but clearly mad at the same time.
"Hey Ally..." I said sheepishly.
"Yes B because this totally looks like nothing. You liars." She glared at me, but still cracking a slight smile. Louis laughed.
"There was only slight sexual tension before."
"Louis! Oh my god!" I hit him as my face went incredibly red and I sunk under the water. He pulled me back up and my legs wrapped around his waist.
"I don't care." Ally laughed "a few more people are coming in, just a warning. And Blake does this mean he's crashing your birthday tomorrow?"
"It's your birthday tomorrow?!" He sounded alarmed.
"Allyson." I growled and glared at her. She laughed and walked out. I hated celebrating my birthday, it made me feel old.
"Why didn't you tell me?"
"I hate my birthday." I rolled my eyes.
"20." I smirked
"I thought you were already 20!" He laughed.
He shook out his hair like a dog, spraying me with droplets of water.
Then he took my face in his hands and smiled
There was a noise behind us and some people ran and jumped in over us. We sunk under the water. We both opened our eyes. He placed his hands back on my face and kissed me and it was the best under water kiss ever.
