The Perks Of Being A Horan

Chapter 4 - 3am

Chapter 4 - 3am.
I woke up feeling groggy at my usual time of 3am. Yes I am a very bad sleeper, even on very busy days I can't seem to have a full night's sleep. My body just HAS to wake me up at least once. I tried for the next half an hour to fall into unconsciousness. However again, my body wouldn't let me. I got up and slowly tip toed out of my room. I peeked around the corner to find Harry and Niall curled up in bed together cuddling like there's no tomorrow. And they wonder why people think they're gay. I do have to say, they do look pretty darn cute. I quickly snapped a photo and ran to the kitchen before either one of them could wake up, placing my phone on the table.
I grabbed the milk, tea and sugar from their allocated places in the suites' kitchen and flicked the kettle on. I picked up my phone from table and went to Liam's name, this is long shot but here goes...
"Hey Liam :) You awake? I can't sleep! xx"
I quickly hit send before I changed my mind and began placing all my ingredients into a cup. Once the kettle had boiled, I poured the water in extra carefully. Bad experience with kettle = extra caution when using. I finished making my tea and went back to my room, switching on the lamp as I entered. I placed my tea on the bed side table. To my surprise I heard and felt my phone buzz. Well I did not think that was going to happen. I couldn't help but smile as I unlocked my phone to read the text.
"Hey babe :) yeah I am and neither can I :( wanna talk? xx"
Again smiling like a 5 year old getting chocolate, I replied faster than I ever have before.
"Yeah sure, that's what I texted you for... Someone to talk too :) xx"
This strange feeling swept over me as I hit the send button. I've never felt like this before... ARE WE FRIENDS OR ARE WE MOOOOORE?! Haha see what I did there.. No okay? My phone buzzed again and...Oh look at that smiles all round...
"Haha, okay, okay... So what room are you in? xx"
"Ermmm... One second let me go check! xx"
I got up out of bed and again quietly made my way past what you shippers would call "Narry" and poked my head around the door. To my surprise what I found wasn't a door number but another human being lent again my hotel door frame.
"Hello you..." Liam said with a smile.
"Leeyyuum!" I beamed. "What are you doing here?"
"I don't like talking on the phone, it's better in person." He said still smiling.
I couldn't help but copy his facial expressions, there was just something about him, something that made me smile, something... Something that made me forget about Harry completely.
"Yeah I suppose so..."
"You suppose?" Liam questioned.
"Yeah, I'm sorta shy..." I say hiding my face in my hands.
"You didn't seem shy at Nandos"
"I wasn't alone with you then." I laughed, instantly regretting the words that left my mouth.
I looked up at him, awaiting a reply but he just stood there with this huge smile on his face.
"What?" I asked quietly.
"Nothing, here follow me." He said holding his hand out.
"Okay but where are going? It's three in the morning..." I answered nervously for two reasons, one because I really didn't want Niall to catch me sneaking around with Liam seen as he knows I have a crush on Harry and two I am currently being lead down a hallway alone, at 3am by Liam Payne.
"Liam... Where are we going?" I whispered as he stopped walking.
"Nowhere, we're here..." He laughed, opening the door to his hotel room.
"Liam this is you're suite... I can't be in here Niall would kill me."
"Why..." Liam asking looking very confused.
"I've just crept out of my suite at three in the morning to hang around with my brothers very attractive best friend..." I wanted to carry on speaking but the shock of what I just said hit me like a tonne of bricks.
"Attractive ey?" He winked, still holding my hand.
"Yes... No... Maybe... Jesus Christ I'm so awkward."
"Nahh you're cute, now come on..." He said sweetly slightly tugging me so I would follow him once again.
He called me cute, he called me cute, he called me cute, he called me cute.
"Right... Do you trust me?" He asked as he walked behind me placing his hands over my eyes.
"Yeah..." I was surprised at my own answer because trust is a big thing for me.. and I felt like I really trusted him.
"Good..." He whispered right next to my ear, "Now walk slowly..."
I walked slowly just as he asked until I felt a cold breeze and knocked my knee on something. I ignored the pain because as I said, I trusted him.
"Okay now look." He said moving his hands away from my eyes.
I opened my eyes slowly to see the beautiful lights of the London skyline.
"This is your view?" I asked shocked.
"Yes.. And it's beautiful..." He said, but he wasn't looking it at the city. He was looking at me.
I could feel my knee's going weak, I've never had this feeling before, I mean I thought what I felt for Harry was real, but this, this is a whole new level. This is nothing compared to my feelings for Harry, in fact I think I'm starting to doubt those... and by doubt I mean completely forget all about them because they do not exist.So many thoughts where running through my head that I had genuinely forgotten that I was with Liam.
"Shannon... Are you okay? You've been staring at me for 5 minutes..." Liam laughed.
"What?" I said placing my hand over my mouth. "Really? Damn..."
"Hey calm down, its fine, wanna sit?" He said calmly motioning towards the two deck chairs in the far corner.
"Yeah sure." I said smiling a regaining my confidence.
We walked over to the chairs and plonked ourselves down. Liam moved his chair so close to mine that the cushions where touching. He looked uncomfortable... Like he wanted to move closer but couldn't, or wouldn't in case it freaked me out.
He didn't say anything, he just looked at me, looked me straight in the eye.
"You can move closer if you want? I won't bite."
"I thought you where shy?" He chuckled moving closer to me.
"Yeah... But... With you I feel different, I know that sounds mad because I've only known you a few hours, but its true..." I trailed off realising what I was doing.
"Yeah... You know what Shannon, I think I get what you mean."
I smiled and looked at his arm awkwardly tucked next to mine. A new wave of confidence blew over me. Wow, I can really be myself around Liam... This feels weird.
"May I?" I asked playfully looking at his arm.
"Eh? What do you mean?"
I didn't want to explain myself so I just picked up his arm and placed it around my shoulders cuddling into his side. I looked up at him to see a very shocked look flash across his face.
"What's wrong?" I asked as I quickly moved away. "I'm sorry.. I just..."
"Nothing!" He pouted, "Come back..." He said pulling me into his side once more.
I don't even know where the rest of the night went, but what I do know is that I now feel like I know Liam more than anyone... Well except Niall of course. The thing's he told me and the things I told him, we just connected I've never opened myself up to anyone like that before and for some reason it just felt right.
"Liam..." I whispered
"Hmmm" He answered sleepily.
"It's 5am... I think I should be getting back now..."
"No wait... Stay right there..." He said slowly untangling himself from me.
"Liam... WAIT!" I tried to whisper shout but it just didn't work.
A few minutes later he came back with a blanket and two cups of tea. Oh my gosh this boy...
"Liam... What's this?" I asked taking the tea and re-tangling myself with the boy I've grown to know over the past couple of hours.
"Stay with me tonight?" He asked softly
"Wow... This tea is amazing Liam! Thank you!" I said smiling.
"So, is that a yes?"
"What do you think?" I ask snuggling into his arms.
I felt weird being like this with Liam, so close to him with his arms snaked around me so perfectly... It was as if they were always supposed to be there. We spoke for a little while longer whilst we finished our tea, before dosing off into a blissful sleep together.
"SHANNNNNONNNN!" Niall screamed waking both me and Liam up from our slumber.
"Whoa! Niall, what do you want?" I asked in shock and I squeezed Liam arm.
"What the hell is this?" He glared straight into Liam's eyes.
"Look, Niall I swear, it's not what it looks like!"
"Yeah, yeah whatever Liam that's what they all say! I thought you where my friend!"
"Niall I am your friend! Just let me explain?"
"Okay fine..." Niall grunted placing his bum on the edge on my deck chair.
"She texted me first by the way..."
Niall laughed... Okay that's a good start.
"She couldn't sleep and neither could I, so she sent me a text and we started talking and then I went to your room to surprise her and we ended up here just talking for ages until we both fell asleep."
"Really? You expect me to believe that?" Niall asked sternly.
"Niall..." I said in that voice I knew he couldn't resist. "It's all true... That's all that happened... We were just talking and then we fell asleep...Do you really think I'd lie to you?" I continued moving the blanket to grab his hands.
"Okay I believe you both! But..."
"But what?" Liam and I said at the same time causing us to giggle.
"You're not allowed to be alone together from now on."
"Are you being serious Niall? You're not my dad!" I said slightly annoyed.
"Yeah mate." Liam agreed.
Niall shot a dirty look at Liam before turning back to me.
"I know I'm not but I am your big brother, I'm only looking out for you."
"What's there to look out for?" Liam interrupted. Now he was getting annoyed. "I'm not going to hurt her Niall"
"No I know you wouldn't because I'm not going to give you the chance." He said storming off.
I looked at Liam with sad eyes, he mimicked my gaze before pulling me closer to him.
"I guess we'll just have to stay apart for a few days." He said, his voice weak.
"That hurt..." I answered sadly.
"I know, hurt me to say..." He replied in a low tone before getting up.
"Where are you going?" I asked startled by his sudden urge to leave.
"To talk to Niall..."
"Okay but Liam, just know that I don't want to stay away from you, but if it make Niall feel better about... Whatever this is," I say motioning between us. "I think it's for the best."
He walked back over to me and lightly kissed my forehead.
"Me too, Shannon, me too. Hopefully he'll come around sooner rather than later." He said with a small smile before leaving me alone on the balcony.
