Allison's P.O.V

Oh no, Oh no, Oh no...

What have I just done?

Shit, shit, shit.

This can't be happening, I didn't even mean to do that. I was just in a panic, and I wasn't even thinking properly and it just sorta came out all at once and then it happened. God, how could I be so stupid? This is what I was trying to avoid this whole time, and yet here I am in this stupid situation. God dang it, Allison, you should have just kept to yourself and then you wouldn't even be in this situation right now. Once Harry hears it he'll definitely break up with me for sure. Oh my god, he's going to break up with me, and then what will I do?

Shit. I am such an idiot...

*2 hours earlier*

I had just put on something decent on the TV when there was a knock on my door. I bite my lip and looked around my apartment again, no more stalling. I pull down my PINK sweatshirt and walk over to the door. I took a deep breath before I unlock it and pull the door open.

"Hey, again." Zayn smiles, walking inside and giving me a big hug, "We come bearing carbonated beverages and junk food."

I smile at him and turn my head slowly towards the second person leaning up against the door. Niall has his hands in his black jacket and he's smiling sadly at me.

"Hi, can I come in?" He asks me, the nervousness clear in his voice.

It's like he's a vampire on the Vampire Diaries or something.

"Of course, come on in." I motion, walking away from the door to let him in further.

Zayn shrugs off his leather jacket and is left in a plain white t-shirt, he doesn't take the beanie off his head. Niall on the other hand is wearing a sweater, one that I remember quite greatly.

"Didn't I buy you that for Christmas?" I ask, index finger pointing to the A on the chest.

You get it, A for Allison? Corny, wasn't I?

Niall freezes as he takes off his Chuck Taylor's, he throws them in the shoe pile and straightens up. Bending his head to look at the fabric on his chest.

"Oh, uh.. Yeah, I think so? I don't remember." He says, looking up at my shrugging.

"Oh, it looks familiar, that's all." I say, titling my head examining it more.

"Okay fine, yeah, you bought me this. I kept it, it's a nice sweater." He picks at the hem of the shirt too show it off more.

"Well I wouldn't have bought it if it was ugly." I say, smiling more genuinely this time.

Niall smiles back and looks around the room, "Listen, I know you didn't want me to come over with Zayn. It's just.. I really just want to be friends, we left off on a good note the last time you were in Ohio, and I just really-"

"It's fine, alright?" I say, "Let's just forget about everything right now and eat some food, yeah?"

He let's out a breathe and frowns, nodding his head though, "Yeah, let's do that."

We walk into the living room and I see that Zayn has already laid out a couple beers from my fridge, the pop, and a couple boxes of Chinese take-away.

I give Niall a quick tour of the downstairs, nothing to big, just showing him where the bathrooms are and everything and then we take our seats by Zayn. I take the seat next to Zayn on my big couch, while Niall takes the love seat across from us. We eat our take-away in a comfortable silence, the television on low just keeping it from being silent.
