11. Scary Movies are scary

Annie’s POV

Harry stayed at my house for the rest of the day, until it was time to go to Liam’s. I kissed my dad on the cheek as I walked out the door. “Dad, I might stay the night there, so don’t wait up.”

“Stay the night?” My dad looked at me funny. “Who’s gonna be there again?”

“Louis, Niall, Liam, Zayn, a girl we met today, named Hannah, and Harry.”

“I like that boy, Annie.” I rolled my eyes.

“I know, dad. But you didn’t like him so much last month.”

“That’s because I didn’t know him very well.”

“You just like him now because he likes the same football (soccer) team as you do.”

“You see right through me.” Dad ruffled my hair. “Don’t do anything you are gonna regret.”

“I won’t, dad.” I rolled my eyes again.


I buried my face in a pillow. “I am really regretting this…” I whined.

“Shhhhhhhhh!” Zayn hissed, throwing a pillow at me. Harry slung his arm over my shoulder.

“It’s okay, Ann,” he said softly, his breath tickling my ear. I shuddered, and he pulled me close. “It’s just a movie.” Suddenly a ghost popped out of nowhere. Hannah and I screamed hysterically, and I was nearly in Harry’s lap. I whimpered and hid my face in his chest.

“I don’t like scary movies…” I whispered.

“Shhhhhhhhh!” Louis hissed.  I grabbed hold of Harry’s shirt and sniveled.

“I think I’m gonna wet my pants.” I whispered up to Harry.

“Please don’t,” he whispered back. I felt him stroke my hair gently.

“SHHHHHHHHHHHHH!” Liam hissed.

Why do I always get myself into these situations…

Hannah’s POV

Ohmigosh. Ohmigosh. Oh. My. Gosh. I’m gonna die. This is it. I am going to die of fright right here and now.  Just then a ghost leapt out from his hiding place. I screamed, and I could hear Annie’s scream too. I watched Harry comfort her gently, then I glanced at Niall. He was sitting, watching the movie. I sighed. Put your arm around me, you stupid boy! I thought, crossing my arms over my chest. Suddenly I felt an arm snake around my shoulders. I looked from the screen to Niall’s face. It was as red as a beet. I’m sure my face was red too.  I jumped as Liam let out a random girly scream, and everyone started laughing. I hid my face in Niall’s shirt. “Sorry I didn’t do this sooner, I didn’t know you were so scared.” Niall whispered in my ear.

“It’s okay, usually I can handle scary movies, but I don’t know what's wrong with me.” I shrugged. Niall pulled me closer. “Sorry for invading your personal space,” I giggled softly.

“I don’t mind.” Niall’s face got even redder. “B-better you than…say, Louis.” I snorted, causing Zayn to look over at us. He grinned and nudged Louis’s side. Louis glanced over, then looked at Harry and Annie, who were cuddled up on the couch. He sighed and looked back at the screen. Suddenly, he screamed.

“OMYGOSH! I’M SO SCARED! I’M GONNA PEE MY PANTS!” He flailed his arms wildly, then jumped into Zayn’s arms. “PLEASE, HOLD ME, ZAYNEY! I DON’T WANT TO DIE!”

“Shhhh, it’s okay, Lou. I have you now.” Zayn patted Louis on the head. “I will protect you from the evil movie.”

“Oh, Zayn, what would I do without you?” Louis batted his eyelashes at Zayn. Annie started laughing.

“I hang out with a group of total morons.” She said. Harry cleared his throat and Annie looked up at him. “Other than you, Marcey…” she said, patting his arm. Liam harrumphed. Annie rolled her eyes. “And you, LiLi. And in case you were going to throw a fit, Hannah, you and Nialler too.”

“Let’s do something else.” Zayn said. He pushed Louis off his lap. Louis landed with a thump on the ground.


“Let’s play Truth or Dare!” Liam suggested.
