I snuggled down deeper into my blankets. It's too warm to get up and I'm too tired. I knew I shouldn't have stayed up so late. I guess I must have fallen back to sleep because 20 minutes later I felt the covers being ripped off my body. 

'LIAM JAMES PAYNE!! GET YOUR ASS OUT OF BED NOW!!' my mum yelled at me before stepping over my blanket and storming out of the room. I quickly got up and walked into the bathroom to have a shower and brush my teeth before I pulled a pair of blue skinny jeans, a plain white t-shirt and my favourite Jack Wills hoodie. I styled my hair carefully before I slowly made my way downstairs to the kitchen to get some breakfast. I opened the fridge to get the milk out for cereal. Argh just my luck. Out of milk again!! Why must life be so god damn difficult. Wait now I sound heaps shallow. Meh guess ill just get Lou to take me through McDonalds drive through on the way to school. I walked into the lounge room to get my red converse that I had accidently left there the night before, and saw my mum sitting there drinking a cup of coffee. 

'Bout time you got up' she mumbled before taking a sip of her drink. 

'Well next time, think of a better way to get me up, rather than screaming up the stairs then ripping the blanket off me' I snapped back at her. I'm not a morning person and mum's actions earlier had made it worse. And the fact that me and my mum don’t have the best relationship in the world probably didn’t help either. I try, I really do. But she's just so difficult!!!! 

'Don’t give me that tone young man!! Get to school before you late!' she said before storming up to her room. Meh! I picked my bag in the hallway and started walking to Louis'. Louis is one of my best friends along with Niall and Zayn. They're the only people who know about my…. Sexuality. You see I'm gay. Iv known it forever. But they're the only people who I trust enough to tell and I know they will never judge me. Its kinda hard for them to judge considering they're all bi. But none of them have been with guys before. Come to think of it neither have I. Heck I've never even had my first kiss. I know I'm in year 12 and never been kissed. Makes me think of that movie, 40 year old virgin. Yer cheesy I know.

Before I know it I'm walking up Louis' driveway. I raise my hand to knock knowing full well that I wont get the chance to. 

'LEEEEAAAAHHMMM' he yells to me ripping open the door in only his boxers but I'm used to it now. Hell iv seen him naked for crying out loud. 

'Hey Lou' I say stepping inside his apartment. Yer you heard right. He has is own apartment. I am so JELLY!!! But then again I would get lonely. I would much rather live with someone. Hmm maybe I could move in with Louis. He does have that extra room. I might have to talk to him about that. 

'Let me guess, your mum was being a bitch again this morning?' Louis asked recognising the look on my face as he disappeared into his room to get changed. 

'Yeah. This time she ripped the covers off again and expected me to be happy about it' I ranted. Louis always knew what to say when I'm like this. I've always been closer to Lou than the other boys and at one point I even had a crush on him but I promised my self all those years ago, when I was just 13, that I would never fall in love. All that came out of it was heartbreak. 

'So Lou. I was thinking. You know how you have that spare room? The one that never ever gets used?' I asked thinking out loud.

'Yer' he said as he walked out pulling his signature striped shirt over his head.

'Would it be so bad if I moved in with you? I mean I could get a job and help pay the rent and everything…' I explained but was cut short as Louis threw a pillow at me. Always the joker. That’s what I love about him.
