Chapter 12

The crash was so loud, I almost wet myself.

“Harry!” I heard Liam shout.  Afterwards, I couldn’t hear anything else.  It was absolutely dead silent.  That changed when I heard footsteps coming up the steps. The door to Niall’s room opened and I started to try and regulate my breathing so that that the person wouldn’t find me so easily.

“Katy, I know you’re in here.” I heard Zayn say. My breaths were short, ridged, and uneven. His footsteps went towards the beanbag. I let out a small shriek when the beanbag was lifted up.

“Found you.” Zayn said with a smile tugging at his lips. He lifted me bridal style, and rushed me down the steps. I was hugging his neck tight, in fear of falling off. Zayn ran past the boys.  As we rushed by, they saw us and laughed, then followed us into the living room. He plopped me down onto the couch, and then sat on the loveseat by himself.

“Can we watch TV?” Louis asked.

“Let’s watch a movie!” Harry suggested.

“Ok, what do you guys and girl want to watch?” Louis asked. He, in return got a variety of answers, including Love Actually, Toy Story, and the Hunger Games.

“Can we watch the Hunger Games?” I asked, not really interested in wanting to see the other movie choices.

“Yeah, I wanted to watch that too!” Niall and Zayn said. There were some groans from the other boys, and a “but I wanted to watch Toy Story!” from Liam.

“I’ll go and get the snacks!” Harry said, while making his way into the kitchen. Niall got the DVD and put it into the player and pressed play once it got to the menu. Harry came into the room with LOADS of gummy bears, chocolate, popcorn, and water. Once we dispersed the food, me getting a bit of gummy bears, popcorn, and a bottle of water, I got comfortable on the couch. Liam also wanted to sit on the couch, so I put my feet on his lap. The movie was finishing the ads while the other boys got comfy with their seats.

We were at the part where Peeta and Katniss met on the train when there was a knock on the front door. Somehow during the movie, Harry ended up with the remote, so he paused the movie while Louis screamed “I’ll get it!”

Louis disappeared around the corner and we heard his “Hello?”

“Hey Louis, what are you guys doing?” Asked a feminine voice from the door.

“UM...UH... EH… LIAM!!!” Louis shouted. Liam picked up my legs, and set them back down on the couch, and made his way to the door.

“What Lou-Abigail? What are you doing here?” Liam asked.

“Well, I just wanted to say hi. We haven’t seen each other in a long time, and I missed you.” Abigail said. I heard somebody’s footsteps and saw Louis emerging from the front hallway, and sit back in his seat on the leather chair.

“Who was that?” I asked quite interested in who Abigail was. Louis and the boys turned their heads toward me.

“Wait, you don’t remember Abigail Corkin? Liam and she were all over the news with their break-up!” Zayn exclaimed.

“Well, at the orphanage, they didn’t let us have TVs, computers, or really any way to see the news. They didn’t even let us go outside.  Unless of course we were adopted, or on a very special break.” I said sadly.

“OK, well Abigail was Liam’s ex-girlfriend. She was really clingy, and snotty, so Liam broke up with her about five months ago. She still visits him every few days, no matter where in the world we are. It’s like she stalks us for a living!” Zayn told me.

“Oh… well she seems…. Nice?” I say with a bunch of hesitation. We hear the front door shut, and Liam walked back into the living room. I lifted my legs, so he could sit on the couch; once he sat down, I put my feet back on his lap. Harry resumed the movie and we watched in silence.  None of us saying a word about what had just gone down.

                                                              30 minutes later

“I’m hungry!” Niall shouted right before the kissing scene. To tell you the truth, it was getting a bit awkward.

“Let’s order pizza!” Harry suggested. Everyone answered a “sure” and “yeah!” Liam then turned to look at Zayn, who was asleep.

“Ok, I’ll call them, the usual? And Katy, we get three supreme, two pepperonis, two cheeses, and a cheese pizza with carrot topping. Are you ok with that?” Liam asked me.

“Yeah, I like cheese, thank you!” I told him. He picked up the phone, and pressed one button, and held it up to his ear.

“Hey Paul, can we get the usual. No not Chinese. We want pizza please. Yes sir thanks.” Liam said and hung up.

“How long do we have to wait?” Niall said.

“About twenty minutes, ten for Paul to get the pizza, and ten for him to come back with it.” Liam told Niall.

“OK” Niall said, dragging it out longer than needed. Harry pressed play on the remote, and we sat again in silence. Louis and Harry started to laugh when Peeta and Katniss kissed. We heard the doorbell ring, once we got to an intense part. Niall leapt up and jumped to the door. The door opened, Niall spoke, and then the door shut.

Once Niall reached the living room, the amazing aroma of melted cheese filled the room. I took one look at him and laughed. He had six pizza boxes in his arms, and looked like he would collapse anytime soon under all of the weight. All of the boys jumped up to help Niall. Once they got there, they started lifting the lids off of the pizza boxes, and shouted names. I heard my name being called, so I got up off the couch, and got my pizza.

Once the boys found whose pizza was whose, we all sat back on the couch and watched the movie and ate. Zayn woke up after we sat down, so he got up sluggishly and got his own pizza.

After the movie

“Ok, I’m tired guys, goodnight.” I say.

“Night” all of the guys said back to me, well everybody but Louis. No he could be like the other, he just had to say “Night night, sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite!” he said in a sing-song voice. Right before I could start up the stairs, Liam’s voice spoke to me.

“Hey Katy, tomorrow we have sound check and rehearsals, do you want to come, or stay here?” He asked me.

“Um… can I come?” I said, one foot on the first step, and one not on any stair.

“Yeah, we’ll wake you up at seven, it starts at eight thirty.”

“Ok, well night.” I said. I turned and walked up the remaining steps, then turned into my room.

I changed into some sweatpants, and a t-shirt, turned my light off, and pulled back the covers to my bed.

“So… smooth!” I said in my head when I jumped in. I pulled the sheets and duvet, and snuggled into the soft fabric. Then, fell into a dreamless sleep.
