I finished this chapter on Friday April 20th but we're having out house re-floored so we had to move everything- and yes that meant my computer.
So I have no WiFi...
I'm gonna write tons, no worries.
It's 11:35 now, so I'm gonna go let my phone charge and then finish watching Bend it like Beckham.
Previously on Let Me Love You:
When I return, there's a text message on my phone, the flashing light illuminating the room.
Zayn: Good night x
I smile and thumb a response.
Jess: Good night. Love you. x
Seconds later he messages me back.
Zayn: Love you more, get some rest.
I laugh and slide into bed, turning my phone off and falling deeply asleep.
(Zayn's Point of View)
As soon as I respond to Jess I turn off my phone and set it down on my suitcase.
"I'm off for a shower," I tell Niall who nods, continuing to bop his head to the beat of a Justin Bieber music video he's watching on his MacBook.
I pop into the steaming shower for a few minutes then head back out after my muscles have been heated and relaxed.
After changing, I return to see Niall has now moved on to Michael Bublé songs.
I chuckle and sit down in my hotel bed, and then realize that the ring is still in the pocket of my trousers from the day before.
"Emergency meeting!" I bellow out and the other boys sprint into the room.
Louis' got a fistful of baby carrots, Liam is clutching his phone and Harry is completely naked.
"Go get some pants on, Harreh," I order the curly haired boy who merely smirked before shuffling out.
"He has to learn to wear clothes!" Liam groans in frustration as he flops onto my bed.
"I agree." Niall says as he scoots to the edge of his own bed.
"I kinda like it," Louis winks and we all laugh.
"Okay, I'm back." Harry announces.
This time he's got some sweat pants on.
"I'm going to propose to Jess tomorrow." I say.
The boys all fall silent and then Niall lets out a very feminine squeal, wrapping me into a hug.
"Congrats!" Louis cheers and jumps on top of us.
Liam laughs and joins in and soon Harry's sitting on top of us all victoriously, posing for no one in particular.
"Get off!" I say, moving slightly and they all topple down.
I smooth out my t-shirt and crawl under my duvet.
"Where's the ring?" Harry asks.
"In the pocket of my trousers," I point to where the jeans are hanging.
Louis and Harry race towards where they're sitting and pull out the box after.
"Holy shit." Louis gulps as he looks at it.
The thing is so flashy, I'm surprised Jess was into something like that.
Shes usually always so modest and practical.
But if she likes it, she deserves it.
It's the first major purchase I've made with my money.
Louis adopted Larry, Niall bought food and Liam got his family presents.
And Harry? He bought a mass amount of clothes.
He had a fashion show for us as he showed off the several blazers and chinos he had gotten, saying he looked 'Hella Fit' with each new outfit.
And they call me vain.
"Let's go to bed, Zayn's got to go help Jess in the morning. Plus we've got a ton of shopping to do," Liam says and guides Louis and Harry away from Niall and my's sleeping quarters.
"Night, Nialler," I yawn.
"Goodnight, Zayn." Niall says as we both lay our heads down on our pillows.
Almost immediately I doze off, picturing the way to tell Jessie how much I love her.
"Zayn, Jess called." Liam says as I walk into the sitting room, stretching my arms.
"Yeah? What did she say?" I ask.
"She's leaving Elias with the neighbor for the day and she asked you to come over whenever possible."
"Okay, I'll be off then," I say.
"Pack your bag first," Liam says and I groan as I race back and shove my clothing into my suitcase.
I make sure to change, since I don't think walking to Jess' place in my boxers would be appropriate.
When I'm done, I wave goodbye to Liam.
"Don't forget this!" He throws the blue box and I catch it.
"Cheers!" I laugh as I head towards Room 111 on the third floor.
"Took you long enough," Jess laughs as I walk in.
"Sorry," I peck her lips quickly.
"Elias is with Beth, they've headed off to the park. I've already gotten some of my boxes packed," She nods her head to where a few boxes are stacked on top of each other.
"What else do we need to do?" I ask.
"I need to go down to the check-in area and finally check out, so you could just sit tight for a bit," She says.
I nod. "Sounds good."
"Super! I'll be right back," She waves before leaving.
