I woke this morning feeling unusually giddy. I pulled the warm red comforter off my body, while sun flooded through the room and jumped out of bed. I looked at the clock, 9:24. Good I have time before I have to pick Louis up...

I make my way to the bathroom and I hopped in the shower, letting the burning water slide through my hair and down my back. I just stood there, head under the pulsating water and if it wasn't for the fact that Louis would be home within the next two hours, I wouldn't have moved. I quickly finished washing up and stepped out of the tub.

I wrapped my favorite dark blue towel around my hips and continued getting ready. I shaved whatever facial hair I managed to grow on my 18 year old face and brushed my teeth while waiting for my hair to dry. I pulled on my favorite white & black Ramones V-neck shirt and black skinny jeans. I finished off the outfit with a pair of white converse and a couple of chunky black bracelets. After approving of my style choice, I headed back to the bathroom to do my hair.

All I can think about is seeing Lou's face again. It has been two weeks without any contact. I felt like I'm forgetting what my best friend's face looks like. God, I can't wait to see him again. He's never going on a cruise with his mom and sisters without me ever again. I don't care if I'm being selfish or overly dramatic. I need my Boobear and I need him now. I look at the clock...Ugh, 10:09, I'm gonna be late. I run down the stairs of Louis and I's flat, grab my keys and run out the door. I hopped into the drivers seat of my black truck, put on my shades, and made my way to the airport.

I'm so excited to see him, I'm shaking. We've been best mates since we met on the X-Factor two years ago and were inseperable...until his mom suprised him with a family vacation. Don't get me wrong I'm happy he got to spend time with his family. Ever since One Direction happened none of us get to see our families as much as we would like and since management suprised us with a two week vacation, we all seperated to spend time with our families, knowing we weren't gonna get a break like this again for a very very long time. Most of us went home, except for Lou. Louis's mom, Jay , actually invited me along, but I had my own family to visit. I stayed with my mom in Cheshire for a while, but she had to go back to work, so I decided to come back home and wait for Louis to return.

It hasn't been the same around the house without Lou... It was quiet, almost eerie.

I pulled up to the airport, paid for a parking pass, and ran to the terminal he'd be arriving at. I had six minutes before his flight was supposed to land. Once I finally reached the gates he'd be coming out of, time seemed to stand still. He was supposed to land at 11:00. I waited for what seemed like an hour when a crowd of people started to walk out of the terminal. Louis? Come on, Lou! When my eyes saw him my heart skipped a beat.

He was wearing pajama pants with a white t-shirt and a light blue zipup jumper. He pulled a grey beanie over his sun bleached hair and finally looked up making eye contact with me. The biggest smirk comes across his face. His pale pink lips contrasting against his deeply tanned skin. Damn he looked Hot.

"HAZZA!" Louis screams and at the same time I scream "Boobear!"

We ran into each others arms, laughing and smiling. It was so nice to feel his beautiful, muscular body against mine.

We stayed like that for a couple of minutes just standing there in each others embrace, before either of us spoke.

"You have no idea how much I missed you, Haz." Louis whispered suddenly breaking the comfortable silence.

He pulls back from our warm embrace, grins and stares at me with those gorgeous blue eyes. His face was literally perfect and my resistance melted. I slammed back into him, hugging him harder than before.

"Haz...I can't....I can't bre- breathe."

I released my death grip on him but did not let him out of my arms.

"I'm sorry" I blushed and looked at the ground, finally dropping my arms.

Louis looked at me with a humorous glint in his eyes. He throws me into another hard hug, laughs at my suprised expression, and says "That didn't mean it was okay to let go." and he winks.
