5. Fun times and Awkward Moments

When we arrived to Olive Garden Louis stayed by my side or at first anyways. We hopped out of the car and was blinded by flashes of light.

"Hey 1D! 1D over here!"

"Harry over here!"

"One Direction! This way!"

I lifted one hand to shield my eyes.

"How did they find us?" Niall yelled over the screaming questions of the paparazzi.

"I don't know but come on, let's get inside." Liam hollered.

They all grabbed each other's hand except for mine. My shirt got caught in the car and it took me some time to get it loose. I turned around to look for them but they were already getting through the front doors.

"Hey!--excuse me-- guys! Wait up!" I waved my hands but I doubt they could've heard me with all these loud paparazzi.

"Excuse me miss. What's your name?" a microphone was suddenly shoved in my face.

"Uh..uh Scarlett...." I twirled my hair

I noticed the logo on the microphone and almost died.


Oh gosh, I'll probably be on slow-mo. 'The girl who forgot her name'.

"Hey, leave her alone, will ya."

I looked to my left to see Louis pushing through the camera men and over to me.

"Louis! Louis! Is this your new girlfriend?"

"Nice choice there Lou! She's smoking!"

He grabbed my hand and held on tight as he once again pushed through men and women to get to the front.

I felt my grip slipping so I held on tighter. I felt so claustrophobic that I felt like fainting.

"Scarlett, are you okay."

I didn't realize I shut my eyes. I quickly opened them and looked around frantically.

"It's okay babe, they're all outside."

When did we get inside?

"Thanks Louis..."

He chuckled, "No problem. Now come on, let's go find the boys and girls before Niall eats all the bread sticks."



"I'll take the Chicken Parmesan." Louis and I both said in Unison. We both cracked up laughing.

"Well look at that. Shy Scarlett is finally talking." Liam chuckled before he took a sip of his coke.

I blushed and I could tell Louis did too. "Aww, look at the blushing birds." Niall spoke with a gushy voice.

I grabbed a breadstick and tossed it at him. It hit him in the nose making all of us corrupt into laughter.

"That was not funny." he pouted.

"Trust me it was." Harry laughed.

Niall picked up the breadstick that laid on floor before blowing on it and taking a huge bite.

Around the table went "Ew! and "Gross!"

Niall just laughed as he took a few more bites.

"Here's your order ma'am." Our waitress, who was really pretty (notice hint of jealousy), handed the girls her plate except mine.

"Here's yours handsome." she handed Harry his Spaghetti with a wink.

I looked over at Cece who happened to caught my eye. I raised my eyebrows at her then nodded at the flirting waitress.

Cece nodded while rolling her eyes. I was surprised when Cece just stared down at her plate full of salad but not so surprised when I saw her stick her foot out right when the waitress started to walk away.

"Ahh!" she squealed as the tray of food left her hands and landed.....on me.

Cece clasped her hands over her mouth with a popping sound. I looked down at my blouse with spaghetti noodles and sauce everywhere. My hands were in the air still shocked as the hot sauce burned my skin.

The waitress got up from the floor and looked at me apologizing before sending a mean glare to Cece.

"Oh my god," Louis tried to stifle a laugh, "Are you okay?"

I made a scrunched up face as I reached down into my shirt, into my bra, and pulled out a meatball.

That's when my whole table lost it and started to laugh like crazy. Zayn and Harry fell to the floor clutching their stomachs. Niall was clapping like a wild seal while Liam was slapping the table and heaving to catch his breath. Louis however had his finger in my face and had his head back laughing. I could practically see the tears falling from his face.

"You think this is funny Louis." I stood up.

He wiped the tears falling from his face as he looked up at me, still chuckling. "Well, yeah it was quite hilarious."

He took out his phone and took a picture of me. A few pictures actually. The best one was definitely the last one. The one of me throwing Harry's plate of Spaghetti on him.

"Scarlett!" Louis yelled as he stood up from his chair, "Hot! Hot!"

I crossed my arms over my chest.

"You think this is funny?" he asked looking down at his now sauce stained white tee.

"Well, yeah it was quite hilarious." I said mocking his British accent.

Now Niall fell off his chair laughing. His laugh, along with the rest of the boys and girls were loud. We kept getting annoyed glances from others trying to enjoy their peaceful dinner.

"You're going to pay for this Scarlett." he threatened.

"Mhm, sure." I grabbed Aislyn's plate of noodles and chucked it at Louis who ducked.

"That sure was fu--"

Harry was interrupted as pile of noodles made contact with his face. I fell onto the floor laughing as a few noodles hung onto his curly hair.

"Who. Threw. It." he looked around with his eye brows pointed downward.

I slowly got up to see Harry glaring at me. Everybody pointed at me and I gasped at them, "Thanks for the cover up guys--"

I grabbed a noodle off of my head and looked over at Harry, "Oh no you didn't."

He smirked at me before quickly grabbing Liam's bowl of soup. He chucked it at me but I ducked just in time as it splashed all over Chandler instead of me.

She looked down at herself and giggled, "I'm all wet!"

She bit her lip before grabbing Cece's plate of salad and throwing it at Niall, who screamed at her, "YOU'RE WASTING THE FOOD!"

I was practically in tears as Niall tried to stop Zayn from throwing some breadsticks at Louis.

"Zayn! No! Not the breadsticks! Anything but the breadsticks!" Niall pleaded.

"What is going on here!"

Slowly, we all turned to find a buff man in a suit looking frightened.

"My--my restaurant," he then pointed an accusingly finger at all of us, "you guys are in serious trouble!"

We all looked at each other and knew exactly what to do. We ran.

"Hey! Hey! Get back here! Stop those kids!" I could hear the man yell.

Showing off, Niall jumped over a small table and continued to run. We were able to make it to the front without being jumped my security guards.

"Oh my god, that was so much fun!" Chandler squealed after we ran a few blocks away from Olive Garden.

"That was the best fun, I've had in years." Zayn agreed bending over to catch a breath.

"Totally." Niall chuckled as he leaned against a building wall.

"We look awful." I laughed as I examined ourselves.

We were all either covered in noodles, soup, or spaghetti.

"You got a little something..." Aislyn pointed to her shirt.

I looked down to find a noddle hanging out of my blouse, half in half out.

"Allow me."

I was frozen in place, not sure what to do as Harry slowly pulled the noodle out with a smirk.

"Uh.. thanks.." I mumbled.

It became silent and I dared a look to Louis. He was staring at Harry and I with a look of....sadness?

"Anyways," Cece broke the silence, "how are we suppose to get home?"

"Craaaap. The van is back at the restaurant." Niall complained.

"I guess we'll have to get it in the morning." Zayn frowned.

"How about some exercise everyone?" Liam smiled while slapping his back on Zayn and Niall, "we could walk from here. It'll only take about ten to fifteen minutes."

"I guess we better get started." Brooklyn started walking and Liam strode next to her, falling into step.

Cece quickly skipped over to Harry and I and tugged on his arm, "Harry do you mind walking with me? I don't like walking at night."

Harry looked between Cece and I, "Yeah you guys should walk together. I'm walking with Louis anyway."

Harry shrugged before wrapping a protective arm around Cece, "I'll protect you milady."

I walked over to Louis, or fast-walked considering he was already walking.

"Hey Louis wait up!" I called out to him.

When I finally caught up to him he turns his head to me but continues to walk.

"Why do you let him do that?"

My hand, sadly, went to my hair and started to twirl.

"Harry? Oh I really don't know." I frowned.

"Well you can't let guys do that to you. Something bad could happen."

Just the thought made me shiver. "I guess I'm just scared or too shy to do anything."

"Well don't be. Just threaten to throw Spaghetti at him." he cast a glance at me with a wink.

"Yeah 'cause it totally worked on you." I lightly punched him in the arm.

We both laughed and for a few moments, I didn't feel shy or nervous. It felt easy to talk to Louis.

"But seriously, you look horrific." he spoke in a serious tone which made me laugh again.

"Ya know, you have a cute laugh." he suddenly said.

Well there goes the 'outgoing Scarlett'. My hand found it's way to a piece of hair and started to, of course, twirl.

"You know, one day I'm going to have to tape your hands to your sides." he reached over and grabbed my hand, pulling it back down.

He held on just a second longer before letting go. A second which I wished would last a lifetime.

"Well you have to catch me first!"

I didn't know where this outburst of sociability came from but I kind of liked it. I took off running down the street with Louis right behind me. Thank goodness for being in track.

Louis and I passed the boys who were having their own conversation.

"Oi! Slow down before I give ya a ticket!" Niall called out to us.

We continued to run until we came to the house.

"You're a fast one aren't you?" Louis bent down, trying to calm him breathing.

I fell onto the floor and looked up at the sky, "Track all four years baby."

Louis chuckled before collapsing onto the floor next to me, "That's sexy."

I burst out laughing and rolled onto my side to look at Louis. He did the same and we just lied there looking into each other's eyes.

I swear if this boy doesn't kiss me right now....

Louis slowly leaned forward, his eyes going to my eyes, to my lips, then back up to my eyes. I felt myself leaning forward too. My eyes fluttered closed just as he lips brushed mine and we--

"Harry stop!"

I quickly pulled away frightened. Louis let his head fall to the floor and groaned.

"Harry, I'm serious!"

Harry suddenly came into view with Cece over his shoulder. Louis and I quickly got up, not meeting each other's gaze.

"Oh hey guys! This naughty girl over here laughed at me when Liam thought it was funny to trip me."

He continued to carry her up the front steps and into the front door, which was left open?

Niall and Aislyn came into view. "So you have a longboard? That's sick."

I bet Aislyn was the one who brought it up.

"Liam you're such a goofball!" Brooklyn giggled as her and a funny-faced Liam came into view.

They followed Aislyn and Niall into the house. Chandler and Zayn followed next as she giggled about something and Zayn had a smile on his face.

The door shut as Chandler and Zayn entered the house leaving me alone with Louis.

We awkwardly walk toward the front of the house and entered. Harry and Cece were nowhere to be found, Zayn and Chandler were on the couch chatting away, Niall, Aislyn, Liam, and Brooklyn were headed upstairs saying goodnight.

Louis and I walked up the stairs and came to the hallway which it separated into two ways.

Girls on the left. Boys on the right.

"So um....?" he scratched the back of his head.

"See you tomorrow?"

He quickly nodded his head and turned and walked down the hallway. I turned in a 180 degree circle and walk/ran to my room which was also Aislyn's.

"So how'd it go?" She asked as she started undressing. She grabbed a pair of shorts from her blue suitcase and started slipping them on.

"Wonderful!" I said enthusiastically.

"Really?" she squealed.
