Chapter Eleven

I woke up the next morning. I began to stretch my body out but something was blocking my ability to. I furrowed my eyebrows In confusion.

I opened my eyes to see Harry's face.

"Morning, babe!" he stated. Which in return scared me causing me to jump, scream, and fall off the bed.

"What the fuck Harry?!" I yelled. He looked over the side of the bed.

"Shhh! You'll wake Niall up." he said. He stood up and helped me to my feet. He walked me out to the balcony.

"What the fuck were you doing in my bed?!" I screamed.

"I was waiting for you to wake up." he said like it was normal.

"In my bed?" I asked.

"I wanted to tell you I was sorry as soon as you woke up." he said. "I'm sorry."

"I know. I guess I'm sorry too. I didn't mean to mess up those curly locks." I said messing up his hair again. He laughed.

"So, little miss ease dropper. I guess now it's obvious you know I like you." he said. He stuffed his hands in his pockets awkwardly.

"Yeah. I guess so." I said. I sat down in the love seat. He took a seat beside me. Neither of us said any thing, we just fell silent. It wasn't a comfortable silence either.

"Look Harry, this doesn't have to be awkward." I said. But I hardly got the words out before his lips were on mine.

Yep, ladies and gentlemen, Harry Styles was kissing me.

His lips were soft and the kiss was nice. But there wasn't a spark like you hear about in those movies.

He pulled away and looked away. Neither of us said anything. Which was even more awkward.

"Well, now it's definantly awkward." I said. "Did you," I started, "did you feel anything?"

He looked at me. "Did you?"

"No." I said.

"As much as i wanted to, I didn't either." he said.

"I mean, it was nice and all but it was lacking spark." I explained.

"Yeah, yeah. Totally." he agreed. "So..."


"Friends?" he held out his hand.

"Yeah, friends." I said shaking his hand in agreement. I smiled. He pulled me in for a hug.

"See, no awkwardness." he said. I laughed.

"Good, because I didn't want there to be any." I said.

We sat there for a few moments just hugging, taking in each others company. When we heard the balcony door began to open. We jumped away from each other. Niall appeared in the door way.

"What's going on out here?" he asked groggily.

"Nothing. Just hanging out." Harry said.

"Yup. Just hanging out." I said. Then there was another awkward silence.


"So. What was that thing between you and Harry earlier?" Niall asked me while we were eating lunch together in our room.

"Nothing, just hanging out." I said.

"That's what you guys said earlier. But it's obvious there's alot more to it than that." he said in that cute Irish accent of his. I couldn't lie to him. Its obvious the boys were going to find out sooner or later.

"Okay. So, he kissed me." I said. Silence fell between us. He stopped eating, which was a surprise.

"So, are you guys like...together now?" he said. I heard something in his voice but I couldn't tell what it was.

I laughed at his question. "No. We're just friends. There's not really any chemistry there. Me and Harry are just better off as friends." I explained to him.

"What about us?" he asked me suddenly. I wasn't expecting it. And began choking on my food.

"I don't really know. I havn't thought about it." I said looking down at my food.

"I have." he said. I looked up at him.

"Niall.." I said. "I'm leaving in three days."

"Then we can make the most of those three days. I just know I like you, alot." he said. He moved next to me on the couch.

"Really?" he nodded. "I like you too, leprechaun." I admitted. He smiles at me. His blue eyes full of happiness.

"Then can we try being together." he asked.

"I don't know, leprechaun." his face fell. "I would love to, but how would it work? Your like an international star. I'm just a nobody. I stay home, and occasionally go out with friends. While your touring around the world. Your meeting girls all over the world."

"But none of them can compare to you. Zoey, I've known you for like four days but I feel like I've known you my entire life. You treat my like a normal boy; not Niall Horan from One Direction, but Niall Horan a regular teenage lad. And your amazing." he said. I couldn't help but smile.

I noticed him leaning in towards me. I felt my eyes flutter close as his lips met mine. They were soft and sweet. It was like one of those movie moments where you feel the spark between you two. I had never felt the spark before. Not with Harry or any of my past boyfriends. But Niall was different. The spark was never ending.

I ran my fingers through his hair pulling him closer deepening the kiss. His hands were at my waist holding me.

Finally we pulled away to catch our breath.

"Wow." we said at the same time.

"That was something." I said.

"Yeah. It was." he said. "So what does this mean? You know that I like you and I want to us be together. It's up to you now. The ball is in your court."

"Okay. On one condition." I said. He smiled.


"No matter what happens, you have to promise me we'll always be friends. I don't ever want to lose you as that." I said.

"I promise." he said smiling. He then pulled me in for another kiss.


A/N: yay! They finally got together!!!! Wohoooooo!
