It’s been a month since the whole Zayn thing. He had been avoiding me like the plague.
I tried to talk to him since everything happened, but every time I tried he just left.
Liam seemed happy like before. He and I were in the middle of planning the wedding. It was a lot. Way more than I expected. The wedding planner we hired was dealing with everything back home and we were trying to plan from the road.
"Are you excited? Trying on wedding dresses is a big deal." Lou smiled. I invited her along with me to go try on dresses.
I tried to make my smile convincing, “I am really excited. Thank you for coming with me.”
"It’s my pleasure." She laughed.
We went into the store and were greeted by two women. The boutique was by appointment only. I was glad I was able to come on such short notice.
"Hello! You must be (y/n) and Lou." One of the women came towards us.
"Yes, we are. I’m (y/n) and this is my friend and bridesmaid, Lou." I introduced.
Lou looked at me in shock, “You want me to be your bridesmaid?”
I nodded, “Of course I do.”
Lou gave me a hug and I was thankful that she accepted.
"Let’s get started trying on dresses!" One of the ladies cheered. She was really peppy.
It was sort of annoying.
Lou went first. She tried on numerous styles of dresses until we found the perfect one.
"I think you look beautiful." I told her as we looked in the mirror.
We decided on a long, dark purple, strapless dress.
"I really love this dress." Lou smiled.
It was my turn.
I tried on a few dresses, but I couldn’t find the one that I liked.
I was just about to give up, when I found one. It was strapless and have lace on the bodice.
I tried it on and I knew then…. that it was the one.
Lou smiled when I got out of the dressing room.
"You look stunning!" She said to me and I made my way to the mirror.
That’s when it hit me.
I was getting married.
It was like a huge weight was dropped onto my shoulders. I never had a panic attack before and I felt like I was having one now.
"Are you okay, sweetheart?" One of the women asked me.
I jumped a little, “Yes, I’m fine.”
I looked into the mirror again and tried to stop freaking out.
"Do you like this one?" Lou asked me.
"Yeah, I do. But uh, I think I should keep my options open." I answered.
Later that day, I was in our hotel room in Kansas City. I was so tired. I had been hardly getting sleep.
I lied down and stared out the window.
What was wrong with me?
A few months ago, I would’ve bought that dress in a second.
My thoughts were interrupted when the door opened, I sat up as Liam entered the room.
"Were you sleeping?" He asked me as he came to sit next to me.
"Attempting to." I chuckled a little.
Liam pulled me into his arms and I rested my head against his chest.
"Did you find a dress today?"
I shook my head, “Not one that I could really see myself in. I found the bridesmaids dresses already. Lou was surprised that I asked her to be in the wedding.”
"She is one of your closest friends. I’m glad you asked her. She had been hinting about it for weeks." He laughed.
"I sent Spencer a picture of what it looks like. She is going to wear the same color as the other girls but it’ll be a different design." I told him as he wrapped his arms around me.
"I’ll have to gather up the guys to go to get fitted for suits." Liam said.
That should be interesting.
"When are you guys going to go?"
"I don’t know. I actually want to go as soon as I can." He told me.
I looked up at him, “Why is that?”
"I’ve been doing some thinking, why don’t we get married between the break we have after the US leg of the tour?"
Liam said what now?
"Because that is too soon. How could we possibly finish all of the planning between now and then?" I couldn’t believe he suggested this.
"I already talked to the planner. She said if we really wanted it, she could make it happen. I would marry you right this second if I could." Liam told me.
"What brought this on?" I asked.
He looked down at his hands, “Nothing.”
"It doesn’t have anything to do with with happened does it?"
"Maybe. I don’t know." He answered.
"I haven’t talked to him just like you asked of me. There is nothing you should be worried about." I reassured him.
"I know that. I’m trying to avoid the whole media frenzy that will come of it. It we get married between the break, no one would suspect it. It would be the perfect timing." Liam explained to me.
I guess he had a point. I didn’t want all of the chaos either, but would it be a mistake if we rushed things?
"Just let me think about it, okay?"
He nodded before he kissed my head, “Okay. Harry also wanted me to ask you if you had thought about if you thought about your bachelorette party at all?”
I shook my head, “Spencer and I haven’t really talked about it.”
"Well, Harry thought it would be a good idea to have a joint party. Your bridesmaids and my groomsman back home in London or we could even go to Vegas."
"That sounds like fun." I smiled
*any predictions on what’s going to happen at the party???? 😏
On a day like today I really needed this. Thank you so much and I love you too :)

I spent the entire weekend holed up in my dorm room. The headache that I had wasn’t entirely gone. I never wanted to drink again.
I tried not to think of Louis.
Avery had been asking me questions all weekend. She wanted to know if something happened between Louis and I. I told her no, but I felt like she didn’t believe me.
It was sunday night and she was getting ready to go out on a date.
"Which dress should I wear?" She held up a red one and a light purple one.
I looked up from my homework, “Um the red one.”
"I hope Robbie likes it. I’ve been waiting for him to ask me out for ages." Avery told me before she went in the bathroom to change.
When she came back out, she wanted me to help her with her hair and makeup.
"What are your plans tonight?" She asked me while I was curling her hair.
"Um, I’m probably going to get dinner on campus." I answered.
"Are you going to meet up with Louis?"
I couldn’t help that my heart started beating faster at the sound of his name, “No, I’m not.”
"Good, you shouldn’t be hanging with his crew anyways." Avery told me.
"Just because they have tattoos and piercings doesn’t mean they are bad people." I said defensively.
She shrugged her shoulders, “Whatever.”
I didn’t want to have this conversation with her anymore. I finished doing her hair and makeup without speaking.
She would talk about something, but I didn’t respond.
When she finally left, I was relieved. I did a little homework until my stomach started growling. I changed out of my sweats and put on jeans with a sweater. I grabbed my purse and left to go grab some food.
There was a diner on campus that was near my dorm. I decided to go there to get out of the cold.
I opened the door and stopped dead in my tracks. Louis and the guys were there. They were laughing in a booth in the back.
The bell on the door alerted their attention. Niall waved for me to go over to them.
I was a little hesitant to.
I walked over, “Hey guys.”
"I thought you would still be hungover by your state the other night." Niall laughed.
"Yeah, I thought I would be too." I chuckled.
I looked over at Louis. He was typing away on his phone.
"Why don’t you join us?" Liam asked.
There was a seat by Louis and by Zayn.
I choose to sit by Zayn.
"What were you guys up to?" I asked.
"Just hanging out. There is a little get together tonight. You want to come with us?" Niall asked me.
"Oh no, I don’t think I should especially after last time." I told him.
"It’s not going to be like last time." Zayn chuckled.
"You should come." Liam pressed on.
I looked over at Louis. He was staring back at me.
Looks like my plans were changing tonight.
An hour and a half later, the guys and I were walking into someone’s dorm. It was a different party than the other night. Only a few people were inside. There was music and booze in the kitchen.
A few people were smoking. I coughed.
The guys went to say hello to some people inside. I noticed everyone there was like them. Tattoos scattered on their body. Piercings either on their nose, mouth or eyebrows.
I suddenly felt out of place.
I didn’t want to drink anything. I couldn’t handle another hangover.
I sat in a chair nearby and listened to the music.
"Would you like something to drink?" A guy asked me.
He looked a little older than me. He had sandy brown hair and light brown eyes. I saw a few tattoos on his arms.
"Oh no thanks." I told him.
"You look really familiar. I think we have the same journalism class." The guy told me.
I tried to recall his face to memory, but I didn’t get anything.
"I’m sorry. I don’t—" I started to say.
"It’s okay if you don’t. I sit in the back." He smiled.
"I’m sorry." I apologized.
"It’s fine. I’m Parker." He held out his hand for me to shake.
I reached out and shook it, “I’m (y/n).”
"It’s nice to meet you. Are you sure you don’t want a drink?"
I shook my head, “No, I went a little crazy the other night.”
"I know where they keep the stash of sodas." He gestured for me to follow him into the kitchen.
I did and he reached into the fridge and pulled out two Dr. Peppers.
"Thanks." I smiled as he handed me one.
"What is a girl like you hanging out with a crew like this?" Parker asked me as he sat on top of the counter. I leaned against it keeping my distance.
"I’m friends with—" I started to say but was interrupted when Louis walked into the kitchen.
"There you are! The boys and I have been looking for you." Louis told me.
"You have?" I questioned.
"Yeah, come on. We are all out on the balcony." Louis grabbed my hand and practically dragged me out of the kitchen before I could say goodbye to Parker.
No one was out on the balcony when we arrived.
"I thought you said the guys were out here."
"I lied. I had to get you away from that guy." He told me.
"And why would you do that?" I questioned as I crossed my arms over my chest.
"Because you barely know that guy, (y/n)." He answered.
"I barely know you too, but you don’t see someone coming out here and dragging me away from you too!" I yelled.
"Don’t get mad at me! I was just trying to look out for you!" Louis yelled back.
I couldn’t believe him. Why was he acting like this?
"I’m just going to ignore you right now, because all you are going to do is make me upset." I told him.
Well more than I already was.
"Fine, ignore me then." He walked away and left me out in the cold wondering what the hell just happened.
*I imagined Andrew Garfield as Parker while writing this 😏
My phone woke me up at three in the morning.
I jolted out of my slumber as I searched around for it.
I didn’t even bother looking who was calling.
I knew who it was.
"Hello?" I mumbled. Sleep was thick in my voice.
"Hey, babe. Did I wake you?" He asked me.
"No, I was just skydiving." I joked.
I heard him laugh lightly, “I’m sorry for waking you. I know you value your sleep.”
"And yet, you are interrupting it. What’s wrong, Styles?" I asked him. He told me it annoyed him when I called him by his last name.
I had been calling him that for as long as I could remember.
"I had been thinking about you, actually." He told me.
I sat up and turned on my lamp. He was thinking about me?
"What about me?" I questioned.
"That kiss we had the other day before I left. I just— I haven’t been able to get it out of my head." He confessed.
Harry left to go to America for two weeks the other day. I stopped by his flat and to tell him goodbye… and we kissed.
I felt something that I never did before.
I tried to play it off. We had been friends for so long. What if we got together and then something ruins it?
Harry has been my best friend ever since preschool. He would defend me when the school jerk, Travis would pick on me.
One time he made him eat dirt.
"Is that a good thing or a bad thing?" I asked him.
"It’s a good thing." He said. I had a feeling he was smiling.
"Harry, what happened was—" I started to say but he cut me off.
"It was the greatest thing that could’ve happened. I wish that I wasn’t having this conversation with you over the phone, but I have been wanting to have it for a while."
I felt my heart start to race.
"What are you trying to say, Styles?"
"I want you, (y/n). All of you. I want to call you my girlfriend and bring you out and show you off. I want to be able to kiss you whenever I want, well with your permission. I want to take you out on weekly dates and to point you out in concerts in front of thousands. I want to be yours… and most importantly, I want you to be mine." Harry confessed.
"I want to be yours too, Harry." I smiled.
"I can’t wait to be back where you are."
"Well hurry up and get here."
"I will. Now since we are together, can I ask you something?"
"What are you wearing?" He asked cheekily.
"I’m not answering that!" I laughed.
"Oh come on. I’ll tell you what I’m wearing." Harry said.
"I already know." I pictured him lying down in his boxers. It made my cheeks heat up.
"I bet you are blushing." He laughed.
"No I’m not." I lied.
"You don’t have to lie. I can already see it."
I rolled my eyes, “Whatever, Styles. Don’t you need to get some sleep?”
"Yeah, I do. I’ll call you in the morning?"
"That’s sounds perfect."
*Here’s an old preference I wrote but never posted. It’s not my best but I needed to post something today. I’m planning on updating all of my stories tomorrow. I didn’t get a chance to write any of them today :/
Thank you so much love! :)
Hahaha thank you!! :)
Thank you! :)
An old text conversation I had with my dad 😂

"Why don’t we go back in there and hang out for a bit?" Louis suggested.
I was a little hesitant to. I didn’t want to hear anything about Louis and his “girls.” Before I could even say anything, Louis grabbed my hand and brought me into the living room.
His friends were still there.
"Look who came back to join the party!" Harry exclaimed, he threw his arms up and ended up hitting Niall in the head on accident.
"Oi!" Niall said as he smacked Harry on the back of his head.
I couldn’t help but laugh at them.
I took another sip of my drink while I watched them banter.
Louis bumped into my shoulder trying to get my attention.
"What?" I asked him.
"I was just wondering what you are thinking about."
"I’m wondering what my roommate is going to tell me when I get back." I told him.
He tilted his head a little, “you think she’ll be upset you stayed with me?”
I shrugged my shoulders. I didn’t want to tell him that she told me he and his friends were bad news.
Louis was about to tell me something when Niall caught his attention.
I looked over to where they were looking at. Louis was staring at a brown haired girl. She looked at Louis and then back at me.
She looked pissed.
"Oh shit." I heard Liam mumble next to me.
"Who is that?" I asked Liam lowly.
"That is Eleanor. Louis’ ex." He told me.
She was whispering with her friends and glancing in our direction every once in a while.
"I’ll be right back." Louis told us. He got up and went over to Eleanor.
They were talking for a minute before they left the room.
"I wonder what they are talking about." Liam said.
I shrugged my shoulders, “Who cares? How about we get another round?”
I was starting to feel the alcohol from before. I didn’t want to think about Louis and whatever was going on with his ex.
Harry and Niall brought me into the kitchen. We each got a shot of something that I couldn’t even remember what it was called after I drank it.
"She’s fun." Harry laughed as he told Niall. His face was turning red from his buzz.
I started to laugh along with them for no apparent reason.
When I woke up the next day, my head was pounding. Then I noticed that I wasn’t in my room.
I looked over and Harry was there next to me.
"Good morning, sunshine." He smiled.
The door opened a few seconds later and Louis rushed in.
"What is going on?" He asked us.
"I scared (y/n). I snuck in here while she was sleeping. It was hilarious. You should’ve seen her face." Harry laughed.
I wanted to punch him.
"Get out of here." Louis told him. Harry continued to laugh as he left the room, closing the door behind him.
I sat up and placed my head in my hands.
"What happened last night?" I groaned.
"What can you remember?" Louis questioned.
"The last thing I can remember is you leaving with that Eleanor girl and Harry and Niall were taking shots with me." I recalled.
I heard Louis laugh a little and I looked up at him.
"I didn’t leave anywhere with Eleanor. We just stepped outside to talk. When I came back inside, you were on the table dancing." He smirked.
"What! Why didn’t anyone stop me?" I yelled.
"Trust me, I tried to. You eventually pulled Niall up there with you and you two were the life of the party."
I groaned and buried my face with a pillow. I had never been so embarrassed in my life.
I felt Louis try and pull the pillow away and I let him.
"You weren’t embarrassing. A lot of people actually said you brought a little fun to the party. They want you back for the next one." He smiled.
I couldn’t help but smile too.
I looked down at my hands, “I don’t know if I’ll be at the next one.”
Before he could say anything, I heard my phone start ringing. I looked around for it and it was on the nightstand next to me.
It was Avery.
Crap, I had forgotten about her.
"Hello?" I answered.
I heard her exhale, “Thank goodness you are okay! I have been worried sick! Where are you?”
"I’m still at the frat house. I sort of got drunk last night and went a little crazy." I chuckled.
"A little?" Louis joked. I smacked his arm.
"Who is that?" Avery asked me.
"It was Louis. Look, I’m on my way back to the dorm. I’ll see you soon." I told her before I hung up.
I would have a lot of explaining to do when I got back to my dorm.
I got out of the bed and started gathering my things, “I have to get going.”
Louis stood up, “do you want me to walk you back?”
I shook my head, “I should be fine. Thanks for offering.”
It got awkward.
"Well, I guess I’ll see you around." He said as he put his hands in his pockets.
Did I really expect something to happen?
"Um yeah, I’ll see you around." I told him before I walked out of the room.
*how are you guys liking the story so far?? :)
