Chapter 21 - Marley

"What do like on yours?" I ask Louis as I hold the phone away from my ear.

"Just cheese." He smiles and I order.

I sit down next to him. "Please don't call me out for this, but let's play twenty questions." We have played this before, but it didn't last long.

"Really?" He scoffs. "How old are we?"

"It's the best way to get to know someone." I point out.

Louis sighs. "Fine. Did you want to go first?"

"No, you ask."

"Alright," he says. "What is your favorite color?" Good, starting off safe.

"Pink." I answer immediately.


I laugh. "Is that question two or are you just wondering?"

"Just wondering." He smiles, I love his smile.

"I'm not sure, it's the prettiest of all the colors and it is easy to color coordinate with."

Louis laughs, really laughs. "You sound like a three year old."

"I'm sorry, I just love that color. I always have." I tease. "Keep going."

"Favorite movie?"

"The Breakfast Club."

Louis taps his chin. "Favorite food?"

"Big Mac from McDonalds." We both laugh out loud at my answer but move on.

"Favorite memory?"

Oh. Now we're getting serious, alright. "When my dad got me my truck. I was sixteen and fell in love with it immediately." Louis' eyes soften at my words and I smile. That really is my favorite memory.

"Who do you love the most?"

I am surprised at his question. "My parents."

"One person." He frowns.

"Fine," I sigh. "My sister."

Louis seems surprised. "Why?"

I told him about her leaving and her pregnancy. "She's my sister," I shrug. "I hate it that she left and I don't know why she did it, but we're related and she is having a baby, that makes her so much more special. She's a special girl and since she is younger than me I feel like I protected her."

The look Louis gives me makes me blush. What's that look in his eye...love, admiration? No, it's not love. I almost laugh at the thought. "If you could go back and change one day what would it be and why?"

I think about my answer before I reply, "The day my sister left. I wish I could have done more because then I would just...have a sister. I love having an younger sister and I think she missed out on some important moments for the both of us. I wish I could have convinced her. Instead I just stood there." To this day I still hate myself for it.

"Hey," Louis says reassuringly, "it's alright." He scoots closer and I take my hand fully in his. The moment is ruined when there is a knock on the door. It's the pizza. Louis quickly pays for it and I thank him. We both eat as he continues to ask me questions. "What is your biggest fear?"

"Not getting what I want," I admit, picking at my crust. Louis raises and eyebrow. "Not like that, I don't mean to sound like a spoiled brat. I mean, when I was ten years old I had everything figured out. I was going to live in a mansion as a princess with a loving husband and two wonderful kids, a boy and a girl. The girl would be younger. I knew what I wanted and I still want that. I still want to have a family and a great job. So far I have one of those things." I smile, and Louis smiles back. "If I can't, then...I don't know. I don't expect those things for a long, long time but I hope they're in my future somewhere."

"That's great, really." Louis tells me. "What is your pet peeve?"

I don't have to think about this one. "Being lied to." That is something I absolutely despise. "I haven't been lied to often but when I am I hate it, more than anything."

Louis looks away and I frown. "I thought you hated when things are messy?"

A smile creeps up on my lips. "That too." I'm grateful he twisted some humor into this, but I am serious about lying.

"How many questions is that?" He asks.

"Eight," I reply and take another piece of pizza.

"Gosh, I have to think of twelve more questions?" He jokes.

"I know you can do it." I laugh.

Twelve questions and four pieces of pizza later, it is my turn to ask Louis questions. I'm anxious, I want to know more about him. The longer I am spending time with him the deeper my feelings grow. I can see the finish line, I can see myself being in love with Louis. I'm so close, and I can't wait.

"What do you hate the most about being famous?" I ask.

He frowns again. "Missing home or not being able to just relax for more than a month. I love my job and wouldn't want to do anything else but sometimes I'm just not completely enjoying it. We are constantly busy and I just want to take a break sometimes ya know?" He says and I nod. "But then I realize so many people look up to us and support us. I can't let them down, there is no way that is happening so I know I am doing the right thing by being in One Direction."

My heart melts at his words. Louis' dedication to One Direction is insane and I know he loves it. Even when he seems to want to be anywhere but on stage I know he's having the time of his life, even if he doesn't. I decide to lighten up the mood by asking, "have you read any dirty stories about you?"

Louis laughs. "I admit, I read one or two, they're very...detailed and I am surprised someone would write that."

I giggle, I myself have read one but this was back in the day when I had posters of them. "Do you think you would have made it or even won on the X-Factor if you had made it through as a solo artist?"

Louis traced his fingers around the rim of his cup. "I'm not sure. I would like to think so but I was young and didn't have a lot of experience, unlike Liam for example," he says. "No, I don't think I would have. I've gotten better over the years and there were so many talented people on that season as well."

I smile. I love that he is honest with me, I love everything about him. "What has been your most awkward moment since the X-Factor?"

He chuckles to himself. "I think the music video for What Makes You Beautiful was pretty horrendous for all of us. It was our first video and we weren't used to it, Harry was so uncomfortable when he got up close to that girl. I didn't get a lot of screen time, but to be honest I'm alright with that since I probably would have made a fool of myself." He laughs, and I join him.

"What is your favorite memory from your friends or family?" I know he asked me this but I want to know his answer.

Louis thinks about it for a minute. "I remember this one time, when I was about eleven years old I was using the toilet and my sister put clear wrap over the toilet seat, my pee went everywhere." We both double over in laughter. "I was so angry, but my sister just laughed...."

"That's really sweet Louis." I tell him, genuinely happy that he is opening up to me. I didn't think he would, to be honest.

For the next two hours Louis and I sit there talking. We ask each other more than twenty questions but neither of us seem to mind. This is the Louis I want, this laughing, smiling, almost crying Louis is who I love. I smile. I love Louis. He makes me madder than I have been in a long time, he makes me laugh, he makes me cry, he makes me feel comforted, confused, beautiful. He is an ass and difficult half the time but the way he makes me feel takes over, I want him to know everything about me and I am willing to sit here for years on end if it means getting to know him. 

I am in love with Louis Tomlinson.
