“Hurry your arse, Niall!”
“Fine.” He grumbled, picking up the pace almost undetectably. I rolled my eyes before dragging him with me through the door to the shop.
I ordered a water and a croissant sandwich and Niall ordered three turkey sandwiches, a slice of cake and a coffee.
“Holy shit, bro. Where does it all go?” I shook my head, then handed the girl behind the counter the black card.
“Oh, let me just get Nikki.” A few minutes later the girl resurfaced, dragging Nikki behind her. I noticed she was wearing black jeans, a leather jacket, a red shirt and some leather boots.
“Liam! Back so soon. I see you brought Niall.” I nodded. “Let them through, Annisa. Don’t you know who they are?” Nikki grabbed a cup of coffee and motioned for us to sit with her. I didn’t hesitate, and neither did Niall.
“So, Nikki, was it?” She nodded. “So, Nikki. You seem like a nice girl. What did Liam do to make you like him?” I whacked Niall in the arm.
“Be polite! And I’m sure she just likes me because, unlike you, I’m a likable person!” Niall grimaced and sat back in his seat.
“No need to go all Daddy Direction on me, geez.”
“Sorry, Nikki. He’s just a child stuck in a teenage popstar’s body.” I glared a thim for a second.
“It’s really fine. And to answer your question, Niall, Liam was polite to me and didn’t scream at me or my employees when they recognized him and began to fangirl.” Niall smiled and leaned forward, motioning for Nikki to lean in, also.
“Are you sure? Because I think he fancies you.” I blushed crimson. Of course I fancied her, she was smokin’! But I would never admit that!
“Hmm... Well, he’s blushing, so maybe...”
“Niall! I apologize, Nikki.”
“It’s quite alright. But you’re avoiding the topic.” She smiled sickeningly sweetly.
“Well, uh-um... You-you’re... Uh-ermm...” I stuttered, lost and completely embarrassed.
“Try your pick-ups.” Niall said, taking a bite of his sandwich.
“Niall, please!” I put my face in my hands as I could feel that I was going even redder.
“Okay, fine. How about the weather?” He asked Nikki pointedly, trying to change the subject for my sake.
“Just fine, Niall. I think it’s cloudy with a 150 percent chance of Liam blushing.” I blushed harder and glared at the both of them.
“Fine, gang up on me, would you!”
“Gladly!” Niall said, smiling at Nikki.
From then on I changed the subject it even came remotely close to my blushes, Nikki’s beauty or whom anyone fancied.
“Alright, Niall. We’ve got to get you to Harry and Lou’s before they fall asleep. You’re NOT staying at mine tonight.” We stood as did Nikki. “Thanks for having us. I’ll come again soon.” We approached the door before Nikki called my name.
“I’ll meet you outside, player.” Niall said as he left. I rolled my eyes and sauntered back over to the counter where Nikki was. No other customers were in the shop and it seemed as though no employees were there, either.
“Yeah?” I put my hands on the counter, mimicking Nikki’s position.
She leaned over the counter and placed her lips onto mine, shocking me profusely.
I closed my eyes and slid my hands into her soft, dark hair. Our lips molded together perfectly. I felt sparks, fireworks, tasted sugar and pastries and coffee, smelled her perfume and ended up smiling into the kiss.
“Sorry, I-” I cut her off by pecking her lips again.
“Here,” I scrawled my number onto a napkin and handed it to her. “Text me later.” I smiled and left the shop, perfectly happy.
“GET IN THERE, LIAM!” Niall shouted before the door shut. I heard Nikki laughing from inside.
This is for Nikki! I hope she likes it! It was reaelly fun to write for her!
