8. Chapter 4 - Haley - Pub with the Guys

“Saphire!” I yelled while making sure Emmie has enough food and water to do her for tonight. “You ready?”

“Yea’ I’m coming!” She walks out her room all dressed up. I was wearing a dress the top was black and the bottom was white, I matched it with a pair of flats and bright pink lips.

We drove the van to the Pub. I haven't told Saphire that I invited Liam. Trying to look for him without seeming like I am is hard.

“Haley are you okay?” She asked. We are sitting towards the middle on the right side. The perfect spot to see everything. I’m not sure what to label this play. They have karaoke almost every night; sometime a live band. They have alcohol, coffee, tea and health drinks. If there was very a placed you wish had very thing then come to the Pub.

I love the style. It's all tables and chair unmatched to each other. They walls are a simple gray excited the wall behind the stage is old brick with light blue Christmas lights hanging from it.

“Yea’, totally! I’m going to add our name to the list.” This gave me a reason to roam the room. Signing our names I turn to leave and I almost run into Liam.

“Hello Haley.”

“Hi, Liam! I didn't see you.”

I smiled.

“I just got here.”

“Cool.” I look behind him to see Niall with him.

“This is Niall.” Liam said.

“Nice to meet ya’” he said smiling and holding out his hand taking I said, “Yeah you too.”

“We’re sitting over here.” I said leading the way.

Heading toward to table I see Saphire with two other guys.

“Haley, this is Harry and Louis.” Saphire before she realized who was following.

“Hi. Saphire this is Liam and Niall.” I sat next to her. She leaned over.

“I didn't know you invited them.”

I lift my eyebrow at her, “and I didn't know you invited him.” We both broke out in a smile.

“So you two know each other?” Niall asked, sitting across from us.

“Yeah.” We answered at the same time.

“Wait, did you guys know the girls you were meeting here knew each other's?” Louis asked. He was sitting next between Niall and Harry.

“Na.” Harry said.

Harry was sitting next to Saphire. They keeps sneaking looks at each other.

“So, how's the new puppy?” I turned to look at Liam.

“Oh, she's perfect.” I took out my phone to show him photos I took. I then showed Niall and Louis. Then I flips to a photo of Saphire and Emmie together and showed Harry and Saphire. She smiled.

“Her names Emmie.” Saphire added.

“You guys share here?” Niall asked.

“We just got her yesterday.” Saphire said.

“I’m going to go get us some drinks, do you guys want anything.”

Everyone said what they want.

“Okay, comin’ up.”

“I’ll come with you.” Liam said, getting up before I could say no, not that I would of.

“Haley, how's it going haven't seen you in awhile.” The guy from behind the counter said, Danny. I may have only been here three time but I know almost every worker.

“It’s only been four days?” I said.

He chuckled then asked, “What can I get you guys?”

I told him what everyone wanted.

“I’ll take a mint chocolate blend coffee.”

“Are you going to sing tonight?” Liam asked. Leaning against the bar.

“Yes. You?” I asked, leaning against the bar like him.


“Come on.” I bump his shoulder with mine. He smiled bigger.

Danny brought over our drinks before he could say anything more. We take the drinks to the table and pass them out.

“Welcome!” Danny said from their stage. He called the first names on the list. And a group of girls started to ‘Girls Wanna Have Fun’.

So, it was my and Saphire turn to sing.

“Ready?” I asked getting.

We head to the stage, I could hear the guys cheer for us as we began to sing.

I was nurses like crazy, I'm use to singing in front of strangers but not one of the most famous group of guys in the world. It came to the part of the song were Saphire sings the solo by herself. I set back and let her have the stage. She sings it perfect, her voice beautiful. Once the song ends I drop my arm around her and we bow. Heading back to the table, she sits next to Harry; I next to Liam.

“You guys sound really good together.” He said. “Do you guys sign together often?”

“Only karaoke, in the car and when it's just us.”

“We’ve done talent shows too.” She adds.

“But she's the singer.” I said pointing to her.

Everyone started their own conversation.

“You about you?” Liam asked, leaning closer.


What do I say. What my parents want? Or what I want? And what do I want? I wish I knew the answer. So, I did the only thing I knew, I changed the subject.

“Are you guys going to sing?” I asked looking around. They guys looked at each other before getting up and heading for the stage. Saphire and I smiled at each other before grabbing hold of our arms. They guys were going to sing. Right now in front of us.  

Like always they did an amazing job. And like I always believe they sound better live.

Soon, we all head back to my and Saphire place. Opening the door I could hear Emmie, I picked her put and let everyone come in.

“Saphire, can you open the balcony?”

“She and Harry went to open it and stepped out.

“Make yourself and home, bathroom down the hall.” I said, enter the kitchen. Liam was following.

“Liam, this is Emmie.” He gave her a pet before I kissed her and sat her down. She took off running stair for Saphire.

“She's cute.”

“She's adorable!” I smiled.

“She's my first pet.” I began walking down the hallway, he was following. I headed into my room.

“You can come in.” He was waiting by the door.

“Growing up you never had a pet?”

“No.” I grabbed some clothes and headed into my bathroom but left the door cracked.

“My parents thought it would take away study time.”

“You parents are strict?”

I felt like laughing or crying. But I didn't say anything. “I have Saphire, that's all I really need.” I came out saying putting my hair up.

“That's us.” I point to a collage I have for use from through the years. It was one of the few things I brought from my old room, other than clothes, books and a few odds and ins; everything else is new.

“Wow, you guys have been friends for awhile.”

“More like sister.” I said smiling.

“Haley!” Saphire calls.

I head out to see that they have set up the Scene It? game. 

“They wanna play us?” I asked crossing my arms and standing next to her.

“They think they can win.” She said smiling.

“Everyone pair up!” I said, looping arms with Saphire.

We creamed the guys.

“We win!” I said, smiling.

“How? How could you guys know all most movies?”

The secret is that Saphire and I've seen a lot of movies. It was one of the few things my parents would let me do when I wasn't studying or working on one of my many activities.  

“Haley's par… Haley and I just love movies.” She said.

“Nothing like popcorn, chocolate and a good movie.” I said, but you could tell I was trying to hard.

“I’m getting coffee anyone want some?” No one said anything as I walked into the kitchen.
