I had successfully gotten everyone's measurements and I sat down on a chair just off camera for a moment. I pulled out my watch, and realized that it was past six o'clock, which meant most of the stores I had planned to go to would be closed by now. I sent a quick text to Paul asking if it was ok if I went shopping tomorrow instead of going to rehearsal. A moment later my phone pinged back with a quick yes.
"How do we look?" Niall asked, spinning around for me. The boys had all been redressed and given camera makeup.
"You look dashing, Nialler," I said playfully, standing up to study the outfit a little closer.
"What about me?" Harry whined. "How do I look?"
"Handsome as ever, Harry," I replied.
"But not as handsome as me!" Louis said, straightening his bow tie proudly. "Don't forget, when we Skyped Gemma told me I was the most handsome of us all!"
"That blatantly did not happen," Liam laughed. "But you can keep telling yourself."
"I will!" Louis said happily.
"Boys! You're on in five," one of the cameramen called.
Everyone besides Zayn wandered over to the couch they'd be seated on. "So," he said.
"So," I prompted. "You nervous?"
Zayn shook his head. "We do interviews almost every day. It's still a bit weird to think about, but I'm used to it by now."
"Well that's good," I said. "I'd be nervous being on television in front of millions of people."
"They start to get predictable after a while," Zayn shrugged.
"What's something they always ask you?"
"A lot of them ask about when we first got together," he said. "But they almost all ask us about our relationship status."
"So nosey." I crinkled my face.
"Speaking of nosey, sorry about Michelle," he said, shifting a little uncomfortably.
"Don't worry about it. It's her job to know your business," I replied. I started to take a sip from my water bottle.
"Will you go on a date with me tonight?" He blurted.
I spat the water back out, missing him by centimeters. "Sorry," I laughed as he jumped back. "Did I get you?"
"You're clear. Don't worry," he laughed back. "But you didn't actually answer the question."
"There is nothing i would like more than to go on a date with you," I said slowly. "But are you just doing this because of Michelle?"
"Don't be silly!" Zayn chided. "We ignore Michelle all the time. She actually suggested I stay away from you for a while. With Louis and Liam already taken, she gets nervous about another one of us dating."
"So you're ignoring her? I don't want to cause problems..." I said hesitantly.
"Forget everything," Zayn ordered. "Imagine I'm just a normal guy you met and I'm asking you on a date."
"Zayn, it's not that simple," I protested.
"It is that simple!" He disagreed. "Don't make me beg. Go out with me."
"There is nothing I'd like more," I confessed. "But-"
"No buts!" He said loudly. He leaned forward and kissed my forehead. "I've got to go, but I'll talk to you after this show is done."
I sat back down, my head spinning. Tonight, I was going on a date with Zayn Malik.
Hey guys, so I'm going away for the weekend which means I can't update tomorrow. I promise I'll update as soon as I get home on Sunday. Read! Comment! <3 you all!
