I lazily open my eyes as the hotel door opens. "Tori, are you up?" whispers a voice. The delicious aroma of Thai pagkain drifts to my nose. "I'm up, Nikki." I say, yawning and flipping on a light. "Is that-"
"Pad Thai? Yes. Your paborito dish, right?" she asks, setting it on the little mesa in our room. "Yes, thanks a lot!" I grin, opening the container. "So, uh, how was your date?" I ask while, wrapping some noodles up in chop sticks.
"Good. But...I think I'm going to go after Liam." I almost choke on my noodles. "W-what?" I sputter. Nikki smiled at me. "Yeah. I think Niall likes you, and I think that you like him too... but you won't admit it." I stare at her, mouth open.
"I'm with Louis! I don't like Niall!" An uneasy knot grows in my stomach. "Right... Tori, I've seen how you look at him. And you look at Louis the same way. But with Niall, it's like there is something hidden." I close my eyes.
"We kissed." I whisper.
"Haha, very funny. Don't pull that joke like Niall did." Nikki sinabi laughing. I looked at her. "I'm serious... we kissed. A few days ago. And then... when he came up here to use to bathroom... he kissed me." Nikki stares at me. "He kissed you, on our date?" She whips around and opened the door. "Out." I stare at her. "But-"
"Get out!" she screeched. I grabbed my dyaket and phone and went out the door. "I hate you. You were always trying to steal every guy from me." Nikki spat, slamming the door behind me.
"Hey Niall, how was your date?" asked Louis as I walked in the hotel room. "It was good, but-" I stop as his phone vibrates. "One sec bro. It's my mistress. Hello?" he says, answering his phone. "What do you mean she kicked you out of the room? Why?" I glance at him.
"You can come crash here then. Yeah, I'll send Niall to get you. Alright. Bye." Louis hangs up and looks at me. "Can you please go pick up Tori? Nikki kicked her out of the room." My puso soared. "Sure." I turned around and left.
It started raining lightly as I spotted Tori under a bus wait. "Hey." I said, helping her up. "Hi." she whispered, not looking directly at me. "What happened?" I ask as we walk slowly in the drizzle.
"I told Nikki we kissed. Both times." I turn to look at her. Something wants me to snap at her, but I hold it back. "Oh." I put my hands in my pockets. She is silent susunod to me. A clap of thunder makes us both look up just as it starts downpouring.
Tori and I look at each other in unison. She grins and grabs my hand. I smile and run susunod to her. "Look there's Niall and a girl!" screamed a voice. I looked over my shoulder. "Shit..." I mumbled. "Papparazzi. Run." Tori giggled and said, "No problem there." She took off, jumping in a puddle. I laughed and followed her.
A flash goes off behind us. I know they have some pictures. I realized we were still holding hands. "Tori..." I whispered, pulling her to a stop. She turned around, her wet hair flying and clinging to her face. I laughed and brushed some of her hair out of her face. "You looked like a monster." I say lightly.
Tori raises an eyebrow and says, "Well you look like an attractive guy that every girl wants." I brought her closer to me. "And maybe that guy wants you." I closed my eyes as we kissed again, fireworks exploding in my very empty stomach.
"Niall, whose the girl?" exclaimed a voice. We broke away in shock. I looked at Tori, shock and worry on my face. "Are you two dating?" Tori clenched my hand tighter. "Oh my gosh! That's Tori Night! Louis's girlfriend!"
"No further questions!" I call, pulling Tori after me. We run to the hotel and Louis is in the lobby. "Hey, I was wondering where you were." Louis said, coming over to Tori and hugging her. "Aw poor thing. C'mon, let's get you a nice, hot paliguan and I'll make some tea."
I let go of Tori's hand, surprised Louis didn't notice. He leads her upstairs and I stop to catch my breath. Then... my attention is caught sa pamamagitan ng the TV in the lobby. "Oh no..." I groan, seeing the 11:00 news.
