“To all our fans on Wattpad. Happy Valentine’s Day!” – One Direction

Liam rolled the corner of the poster that sat on the table. They were plastered all over the city as if a tsunami had swept through and left One Direction in its wake.

Niall nudged his elbow, “Whatcha thinking, mate?”

“Just how amazing this last year has been. How lucky we are.”

Zayn closed the book he'd been reading and set it down. He leaned forward and nodded toward the poster. “They sold out in four minutes.”

Harry and Louis entered, their voices echoing above the rest. “I just hope she's not afraid to speak. I don't want to go on a date with myself,” Harry said.

“Who?” Niall, Zayn and Liam asked in unison.

“His date,” Louis answered for him. “Don't you remember lads? Win a date with Harry Styles! Why they would possibly want Harry when they could choose from me, Zayn, Liam or Niall... well, it's one of the wonders of the modern world, isn't it?”

Zayn gave a cool smirk. “Liam is emotionally unavailable, as for the rest of us; well I'm as baffled as you are.”

Liam cleared his throat and held up his hands on both sides of his body shifting them as though they were scales. “Pot? Kettle?”

Zayn leaned back in the chair and crossed his arms over his chest. “At least I'm not pining over the same girl for a lifetime!”

“At least I know what I want,” Liam retorted.

“I know what I want...sort of,” Zayn said.

Niall rolled his eyes. “It's just a fictional holiday. Who cares?”

“Actually,” Zayn said, “there are a lot of different stories about how it originated.”

Louis held out his hand. “Stop! Are we seriously sitting 'round talking 'bout Valentine's Day? I feel emasculated.”

“He's right,” Harry agreed.

Niall bolted upright and stood from his seat. “Right then. Let's do something manly like compare chest hair or gawk at women.”

Harry laughed. “Or we could discuss the set for tomorrow's concert. How about that? You know, be productive.”

“Brilliant,” Liam said, “That is the best idea I've heard all day.”
