Dancin' Til We See The Sun

Mandie, a dancer from America, is just trying to find some work for her feet. But when she falls in love with a member of the band she's trying to work for, things could be really good, or really bad.

Mandie's P.O.V.

We had gotten the Chinese food, and headed to the tattoo shop. Harry, Zayn and I were looking through books, trying to find a design. There was a TV in the shop, and we weren't looking at it, until we heard the reporter say "One Direction". Our heads all turned.

"One Direction member Liam Payne has been spotted with a possible girlfriend. Payne and unknown girl were spotted two nights ago leaving a hotel and going to a club. Afterward they went to Liam's home and didn't leave until the next morning. Could it take the availability of the band down to two, or is Payne just having a little fun?" 

Liam's phone went off in an instant, buzzing and beeping with tweets from fans.

Then Liam pulled out his phone to tweet. I pulled out my phone to check what he was updating.

@Real_Liam_Payne Just saw the news story. Not saying yet if I do, but yu will know soooon. I will tell you as soon as I can.Xx

"You can't spell," I said, looking up at him. We all laughed at this.

"Find anything yet?" Harry asked as I took a bite of my fried rice. I turned the page, sighing.

"Nope. Anything Zayn?" I asked. He looked up and shook his head. I was just skimming the page, and a design caught my eye. "Haz. Malik. Come here." They walked to my side and I pointed to the design. It was 'carpe dium' in a calligraphy font. They looked down at it and we all traded a look.

"Who wants to go first?" Zayn asked. They both looked at me, and I looked between the both of them.

"Fine. You know, it's pretty bad that you two have so many tattoos and are too scared to go first," I said, smiling. I looked over at Liam and caught him staring at me. I went over to sit beside him and leaned my head on his shoulder.

"You really have no little problem with it? No pain, no doubts, no-" he started saying before I cut him off.

"No nothing. But if you still want me to hold your hand just so you feel a little better, then don't worry, I will," I said, looking up at him smiling. I kissed his cheek, and looked up at him, then Harry grabbed my hand and pulled me up to the counter to the tattoo artist. We all decided to get it on the inside of our left arms, and Liam came up behind me while the tattoo artist went to make the stencils. I turned around.

"Yes?" I asked. He leaned down to kiss me, and I met him halfway.

"I love you," he said.

"I love you too," I said.

"And I love the both of you, but we need to get Little Miss Fearless here in the chair. And Mr. Worry Wart can be right beside you," Harry said, dragging me back into the tattoo room.

Liam's P.O.V.

I sat there next to Mandie who was in the chair, while the artist put the stencil on her arm.

"You can stop sweating now. I'm fine Liam," Mandie said. I looked into her big brown eyes and believed her. He started up the machine and I immediately grabbed her free hand. She started laughing. Everyone else stood off to the side, eating orange chicken and laughing at my reaction. We made idle chit chat about Twitter, how much chicken Niall could eat, and what we were going to do about mine and Mandie's little secret.

"I think you should just tweet it and tell them," Louis said.

"No, because then I will get crap for not tweeting about it the first time," I said.

"Well what if we made it a public thing?" Niall said, looking at Harry. We all looked up at him and pondered this.

"Yeah. Go on the radio, have the interviewer talk about the new album, the tour, and have an exclusive with Liam on his mystery girl," Harry said.

"Haz, you are brilliant," Mandie said, looking at Liam.

"I just want our fans to accept you. I can't even imagine how tough they can get," Liam said.

"Yeah. They were brutal when Lou and I started together," Eleanor said.

"They were even worse with Perrie," Zayn added. Mandie looked into my eyes, then at the tattoo artist.

"You'll keep this conversation quiet right?" she said, asking the guy putting ink into her arm.

"Yeah, but what's in it for me?" he asked.

"Um... how about some orange chicken?" Louis offered.

"Too late," Niall said, eating the last piece.

After getting all of us finished and throwing down another hundred pounds to keep the tattoo artist quiet, we all went our separate ways. Mandie was sitting in the passenger seat, looking over at me.

"What?" I asked.

"Liam, why were you so worried when I was getting my tattoo?" she asked.

"I just didn't want to see you in pain. I felt like if you were in pain, that I had to stop it. I just get really protective," I said.

"I love you so much Liam," Mandie said.

"I love you too Mandie," I said. She smiled, then leaned over and kissed my cheek.

"Oh and, I need to go to my hotel and get all of my stuff since I'm sort of staying with you now. And I need to see Cloe. I usually see her every day. It's been weird not seeing her," she said.

"Okay. Then we need to get you in bed so you can sleep before tomorrow," I said. I had figured out that she was auditioning for our tour and video, but couldn't say anything about it to anyone. We went to her hotel, got all of her things, and told Janelle that we would be there tomorrow night to take Cloe out to eat. We got back to my place and took her things to my room. She just wanted to put everything away tomorrow, so we decided to get changed.

The shirt she was wearing was big on her, so it hung off her shoulders. I couldn't help but walk over to her and brush the hair from her shirt, and kiss her shoulders. She turned around and kissed me. She wrapped her arms around my neck and pulled me closer to her. I reached down and grabbed behind her leg, wrapping it around my waist. I felt her smile, and reached down to her other leg. I walked, her legs wrapped around my waist, over to the bed. I laid her down, still kissing her, and she unwrapped herself from around me. I broke away long enough to take off my shirt, but was back to her lips in an instant. My hands were starting to wander, and she wasn't stopping me. My hands started to go lower, and that's when she froze. She was out from underneath me in an instant, shaking her head.

"I'm so sorry Liam, but I am not ready for something like that. I'm just.... no, I can't. I love you, but I am nowhere near ready for that," she said. She looked sad, like she was disappointing me. I climbed to where she was on the bed and kissed her forehead. I wrapped my arms around her.

"Babe, if you aren't ready, that's fine. I don't need you to be. I love you, and I don't need sex for you to prove it. Let's just go to sleep," I said. She kissed me.

"Thank you Liam. Sweet dreams. I love you," Mandie said, crawling under the duvet and lying next to me. I pulled her closer, and kissed the top of her head.

"I love you too Mandie."
