Don't Get Too Close // Liam Payne AU

They say it's what you make
I say it's up to fate
It's woven in my soul
I need to let you go

Your eyes, they shine so bright
I wanna save that light
I can't escape this now
Unless you show me how

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It's where my demons hide
It's where my demons hide
Don't get too close
It's dark inside
It's where my demons hide
It's where my demons hide

Don't Get Too Close~ Horrifying Bubbles

Niall lightly drummed his fingers on the granite counter top of the island, impatiently waiting for our guests to arrive. I was lying upside down on the couch, gripping my phone tightly as I texted a very worried Analeigh. They had gotten lost about four times now, but they were now on the right path heading in the right direction. 

I heard Niall groan loudly as he shuffled his way over to the couch to sit by me.

"How much longer?" he whined.

I couldn't help but laugh at him, "Someone is very impatient today." 

Niall huffed, "I'm just bored. As soon as they get here, the fun begins."

I glanced at him, then back to my phone, "Well, it'll be about ten more minutes. They're almost here." I said. Niall sighed, leaning his head back on the couch, closing his eyes.

"So who is she bringing with her?" he asked.

"Umm... I don't know honestly. It's just her and two other friends. I don't know their names, but i know they're two guys."

Niall snickered lightly, "Oh, this should be fun." he said and peeked over at me with one eye open. A smile displayed on his face. 

I looked at him and smiled, "What?"

"I hope you know we're going to play spin the bottle with them." he said and his smile grew even bigger.

I shook my head, "No, you can play spin the bottle with them," I said. Niall shifted his position on the couch so he was now sitting up straight, and staring me down intently, "What?" I asked.

"Come on, Julina! Where's your sense of adventure?"

I sighed, "Let's just see how this goes, okay?" Niall let out a breath and crossed his arms over his chest. I felt my head starting to ache as my blood continued to rush to it. I spun my body around to the right, avoiding kicking Niall in the head. I stood from the couch and went into the kitchen. I grabbed a few bowls and poured several different chips into them, spreading each bowl out along the counter. I opened a package of red solo cups and placed them on the counter next to the alcohol and soda.

My phone started ringing, indicating that I had a new text message. It was from 'The Most AMAZING girl ever :D' aka Analeigh

To: Me

From: The most AMAZING girl ever :D

We've just turned down the dirt road. Be there in a few!!

I replied with an 'okay' and stuffed my phone in my shorts pocket. "They'll be here in a minute, Niall!" I shouted from the kitchen. I finished setting up the snacks, and turned the music up a little bit more. 

I heard a car slowly coming up the driveway, and my heart jumped up into my throat as my excitement went through the roof. 

I pushed the curtain to the side on the door to see a rusted up truck creep up the road with Analeigh in the passenger seat. "They're here!" I screeched. There was a boy driving the car. He had black, smooth hair that was styled up into a quiff-like form. He wore sunglasses over his eyes, and was wearing a tank top, exposing his marked up arms. From where I was, I couldn't see the second boy.

As they parked the truck, I ran outside to greet them. A very excited Analeigh came out, wrapping me in a hug, squeezing me tightly. "I'm so happy to see you!" she exclaimed loudly in my ear. I flinched a little, but she didn't notice. 

"Its so great to see you too!" I smiled and she let me go. I heard the cabin door shut behind me. I turned around to see Niall sauntering his way over to us. He stopped next to me and smiled warmly at Analeigh. 

"Hi, I'm Niall. I've heard so many great things about you." he said, extending his hand to her. 

She shook his hand with delight, "Same! It's really nice to meet you." she said with a warm smile. Two boys emerged from the car carrying several bags in both of their hands.One of the boys was the black haired boy that was driving the truck. His attire was very summery. He wore flip-flops and shorts along with his tank top. He had moved his sunglasses to the top of his head, so I could now see his eyes. They were a lighter shade of brown, that only seemed to get lighter the more we stood out in the sun.

The second boy had curly brown hair that was pushed back with a bandana. He also wore flip-flops and shorts, but unlike the first boy, he wore a t-shirt. He also wore sunglasses, but he never put them on top of his head, so I couldn't see his eyes.

"Julina, Niall, this is Harry," she said motioning to the curly haired boy to her left. Harry gave a sweet smile, showing it off and revealing his dimples. I smiled back, giving him a small wave. "And this is Zayn." she said motioning to the black haired boy on her right. I gave his a smile and a wave as well.

"I would shake your hand or something, but my hands are kind of full." Harry said with a small shrug.

"Oh, here. Come inside and I can show you where to put them." Niall said, motioning them to follow him into the cabin.

"This place is beautiful," Analeigh said, staring up at the cabin, admiring its beauty. "We are going to have such a fun night. Thank you so much for inviting us." she said as we both walked into the house.

"Let's get this party going!" I heard Harry yell. He put his bags down, took off his sunglasses, and was already at the counter serving us drinks. He poured a clear liquid into five shot glasses, handing one to each of us. "I would like to make a toast," Harry smiled as he rose his glass. "To a fun night, and many new memories to come." he smiled, raising his glass towards me. I rose mine as well, noticing him wink at me. I could feel my cheeks deepen several shades of red, which only made him smile more.

"Cheers!" we all said in unison. His eyes never left mine, and mine never left his. There was something in his eyes that kept me staring; like a moth to a light. I just couldn't look away from his beautiful green eyes.

We all knocked back our drinks together. The crisp liquid burned as it slid down my throat. Whatever it was, it was really strong, and everyone else thought so. We all made a face as we drank our shot. We put our glasses down on the counter next to the liquor bottle.

"So guys, what's first on our party agenda?" Zayn asked.

Niall shrugged, "Um, well, I guess whatever you guys want to do first."

"Well, I don't know about the rest of you, but I've been dying to go swimming ever since we got here, so I think that's what we should do." Harry said, grabbing at the hem of his shirt and pulling it over his head. I could feel my cheeks heating up again as Harry started getting undressed in front of us. He was one of those kinds of guys that was kind of hard not to stare at for more than a few seconds.

When I redirected my eyes from his body to his eyes, I noticed he was looking at me again. My cheeks were on fire now. I bit my lip to keep myself from smiling, and a smile appeared on his face again, which made me want to smile even more.

"That actually sounds like a perfect idea!" Zayn replied, pulling off his tanks top as well.

Analeigh smiled, "Perfect! I'll race you Zayn!"

Zayn laughed, "You're so on." he said. They both ran out of the house with Niall close in tow.

Harry and I were following slowly behind, "So, were you enjoying the view?" he asked, wiggling his eyebrows at me.

I giggled nervously, "I'm sorry about that." I said. I didn't know how to react around him. We were two completely different people. He was so out going and flirtatious while I was such a nervous wreck.

Harry laughed, "What are you apologizing for love? There's nothing to be sorry for." he said while looking over me. I just shrugged and stuffed my hands in my pockets.

When we reached the lake, Zayn and Niall were already in the lake. Analeigh was sitting out in a chair, watching the boys splash each other in the lake.

"You going to come in with us?" Harry asked.

My lips went into a flat line as I shook my head, "I think I'll pass."

Harry pouted, "Aw c'mon love! The more people the better," he said. I still shook my head. Harry sighed and shook his head, "Alright, but you're missing out." he said. He ran down to the dock and did a cannon ball into the water.

I took a seat next to Analeigh and watched the boys roughhouse in the water, "You and Harry are really hitting it off." she said, smiling at me.

I shrugged nonchalantly, "He's cool I guess."

Analeigh shoved my shoulder lightly, making us both laugh, "Oh come on. I saw the way you were looking at him. You're totally into him, and he's totally into you."

"Really?" I asked and she nodded. I thought about it for a moment; the thought of someone liking me back was so new to me. I was always the one to have a crush on someone I could never have. It was exciting how the tables have turned.

"How can you tell?" I asked.

"Don't you think it's kind of obvious?" she asked in a 'duh' tone. I just shrugged my shoulders. Analeigh rolled her eyes, "The way he looks at you says it all. I've known Harry long enough to know when he's into someone."

"And you definitely think he's into me?" I questioned.

Analeigh nodded, "Yes."

We were silent for a moment before a question popped up into my head, "Have you and Harry ever dated in the past?" I asked bluntly.

"Uh, to tell you the truth, we have, but it just never worked out." she said, staring back out at the water.

"How come?" I push further.

Analeigh sighed, "It's just that, we're two different people. He always wanted to go out and party, while I wanted to stay home and relax. So one day I told him that I'd rather be friends with him, and he was okay with that. It is hard because I still like him, but I know I'll be better off with someone else."

"But you're okay with him and I?"

She nodded, "Yeah. I want you both to be happy. Besides, I've got my eyes on someone else."


"Someone I met at school. We've hung out a few times, and he's really funny and super cute."

"Aw, well I hope I can meet him someday."

Analeigh giggled, "I think you will, if you come to Harry's party this coming weekend."

"I'll think about it." I said.

"Hey Analeigh! Do me a favor and get that cooler we brought." Zayn called.

"Why can't you do it lazy?" she called back.

"Because I really don't want to get out of the water and your right there," he said. Analeigh sighed and stood from her chair, giving into Zayn's favor. "Thanks babe!" Zayn called.

"Yeah, yeah," she said waving her hand in the air. She turned to me, "Wanna give me a hand? It's kind of heavy."

I nodded and stood from my chair. Analeigh lowered the tailgate, and grabbed one end of the blue cooler. I grabbed the other end and helped her take it out.

"Holy crap! What's in this?" I asked.

"A bunch of ice and beer." Analeigh stated simply, grunting as we waddled our way back to the lake.

"Thanks loves!" Zayn called as we set it down. The three boys got out of the water to grab a beer.

"Oh, now you'll get out of the water." Analeigh teased, grabbing two beers for us.

"Let's see who can drink their beer the fastest." Harry challenged. Everyone nodded their heads, excepting the challenge. Except me; being new to drinking, I didn't want to party too hard.

Zayn looked at me, "What you're not going to do it, Julina?" he teased.

"Zayn," Analeigh warned, "You don't have to if you don't want to, Julina. You shouldn't feel pressured by this idiot." she said, nudging Zayn next to her.

I sighed before making my decision, "I'll do it!" I said with confidence.

"Alright then. Is everyone ready?" Harry asked, opening his can. The rest of us did the same. "Ready, set, go!" Harry said. We all put the cans to our lips and started chugging them. Beer was definitely not my thing. I didn't like the taste of this one, but I had to at least attempt the challenge I was given.

"Woohoo!" I heard Zayn yell. He had finished first. Then it was Harry in second, and Analeigh in third. Niall was fourth and I was last, which I had expected. We all laughed as wiped out mouths, and threw our empty cans back in the cooler.

"Let's get back in the water woo!" I heard Niall yell as he ran down towards the dock. Harry and Zayn followed him. Those three boys made my day a lot brighter with their antics. It made me smile to see Harry and Zayn splashing each other in the water. My smile slowly started to fade away as I scanned the water. I couldn't find Niall in their splash fight. 

I ran down to the dock, looking closely at the water, noticing the most horrifying bubbles making their way to the surface.
