When I Wake Up Next To You

Ice Skating

"[i]Yes, I like the way you smile with your eyes
Other guys see it but don’t realize that it's m-my loving[/i]"

"Ugh..." I rolled over and grabbed my phone, "Who is it?"


I glanced at the clock and let out a small groan, "One, how'd you get my number? Two, Louis it's six am!"

Louis snorted, and I could almost feel him rolling his eyes over the phone, "I got your phone number from your boyfriend, idiot, who else. And second, I know it's six am! You need to get up."

"No... no, I need to sleep, Louis." I said shoving my face into my pillow.

"Look, I don't care if Niall kept you up la-"

"No. You've been around Harry too long." I muttered.

"Whatever! Get up, we're going on a double date. El and I have it all planned out. Well she does. I was in charge of getting you and Niall to agree."

"I haven't agreed!" I protested, of course I was going to say yes, but it was fun to banter with Louis.

"Sorry, did I say agree? I meant to say drag you out no matter what, sorry. Come on, it'll be fun! It's not like you and Niall had any other plans - why not spend the day with Eleanor and I?" Louis said, "Come ooooonnnn."

"Alright, alright." I said, "It had better be fun Tomlinson, or it's your head I'll have."

"Right, whatever. Dress warmly! We'll be 'round in any hour to pick ya up." he said brightly before hanging up.

I pulled myself out of bed and quickly got [url=http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/set?id=54243062]dressed[/url] knowing Louis was serious when he said they'd be here in an hour and it would be better to be ready to go right when they got here.

Niall called me when they arrived and I quickly made my way down to the lobby where he stood waiting for me.

"Hey love!" he said, picking me up in a crushing hug, "Ready to go?"

"Yup!" I replied with a kiss, ";El and Lou waiting in the car?"

"Yeah, impatiently." Niall said with a laugh, taking my hand as we made our way to the car.

"Finally...!" Louis said with a sigh as we piled into the backseat of his car, "I was about to go in and drag you two out myself!"

"Oh shut up you drama queen," I said, "Hi El!"

Eleanor smiled at me and waved, "Nice to see you again!"

Eleanor was a complete sweetheart, and we had quickly become friends after Louis introduced us. While she was sweet and nice, she had a bit of her own sassy streak - which wasn't surprising as she was dating Louis. Nonetheless, we got along well and I was looking forward to spending the day together.

"So what's the plan?" I asked, "The way Louis went on on the phone makes it seem like this is going to be the best day ever."

"It is! Do I ever lie or exaggerate anything?" Louis said.

"Yes." the three of us replied and I stifled a laugh at Louis' face at our response.

"We're going for a bit of shopping, then later we're going ice skating!" Eleanor said excitedly, "It's the perfect day for ice skating."

"I didn't hear any mention of food in that." Niall grumbled, "Particularly breakfast."

"Niall, is that all you think about?" Louis asked, "Of course we'll be getting food ya idiot."

"Starting with breakfast." I said smiling and giving Niall a kiss, "I don't want you to be grumpy."

"I could never be grumpy with you around," he replied as his stomach growled, "Although I am really hungry so let's hurry."

After breakfast we began to shop, and eventually we split up with Eleanor and I shopping together and Niall and Louis wandering off together.

"How's this look?" Eleanor asked holding up shirt to her body.

"I like it, I think Lou will like it too." I said with a smile as I rifled through the clothing.

"You think?" she asked.

"Yup, it's striped - you two will match. He'll get a kick outta that."

She smiled and draped the shirt over her arm, "You know him so well already, he thinks rather highly of you."

"Really?" I asked startled.

"Mhm, he already considers you a good friend. He doesn't really show it, but he's rather protective over Niall. Well, all the boys are really. But Lou is really happy Niall has you." she looked over at me and giggled, "And it does help that you and Louis are a lot alike. You two get along wonderfully, I'm glad he's got a friend like you."

I smiled at her feeling slightly embarrassed, "Thanks... I'm glad I've got him as a friend. You too, I was worried you weren't going to like me."

"What? No way, Danielle and I need another friend to be quite honest. It's nice to have a little...support group, you know?" she said, "I mean, us girls have got to stick together, it can be a bit hard sometimes." she finished with a smile.

"Yeah..." I said shyly, "I've been a bit afraid to even check my twitter. I know it can't all be bad, but..."

"No, I understand completely. I rarely check my mentions anymore, it's sort of sad that the rude ones ruin it for others." she said sadly, "Well anyway! Enough of that, today's supposed to be fun!" she said before dragging me over to the jewelry.

I looked at the various pieces of jewelry before my eyes landed on a specific bracelet. I picked it up, looking at it carefully. It was some sort of irish pride bracelet, with braided green, orange and white threads. It was a bit silly really, with little charms dangling from it.

"What's that?" Eleanor asked coming over.

"Oh um, just a bracelet. I was thinking of getting it for Niall but...I don't know it's a bit silly."

"Don't say that! I'm sure Niall will love whatever you get him." Eleanor said.

"Yeah even if it is a bit tacky." Louis said, strolling over.

"It is not tacky!" I defended, sticking out my tongue.

"Well it is a bit tacky," Eleanor admitted.

"A bit?!"

"Okay it is tacky but be quiet Louis, I think it's cute in it's own way." Eleanor said lightly smacking Louis on the shoulder.

Louis rolled his eyes, "I didn't say he wouldn't like it, I mean it is Niall."

"Where is he anyway?" I asked.

"Got distracted by the food court." Louis said, an answer I was fully expecting.

"Alright, I'm going to buy this for him then." I said with a smile and made my way to the cash register.

About an hour later (after we finished shopping and dragged Niall way from the foodcourt) we made our way to the ice skating rink. I was a bit nervous, as I wasn't exactly the best at ice skating and spent most of my time next to the wall.

"Ready?" Niall asked, as he pushed himself up. He stumbled a bit and I giggled from the bench, "Here." he said blushing slightly to help me up.

"We'll just have to stick together." I said grasping his hand tightly.

"That doesn't sound like a bad idea." he replied laughing.

We made our way to the ice where Louis and Eleanor were already skating together looking every bit the cute couple they were. Niall went onto the ice first, one hand holding mine and the other gripping the wall. I set a skate onto the ice and wobbled. A nervous laugh escaped from my lips and Niall gave me an encouraging smile.

"It'll be alright, love. I've got you."

Eventually we both made it on the ice, with me closest to the wall clinging onto it with all my strength. We were actually doing pretty okay, considering we were both pretty bad at skating. Niall snuck his arm around my waist and smiled at me before giving me a kiss.

"Having fun?" he asked.

"Yeah, of course!" I said giggling.

"Aww look at them, El." Louis said popping up behind us (nearly knocking us over in the process), "Aren't they the cutest?"

"Are you mocking us, Lou?" I asked sternly, "Cause if you are..."

"You'll what?" Louis asked coolly, "You two are complete fishes out of the water on the ice!"

He had a point.

"But I can catch you." Eleanor said giggling, "And don't think I won't! I've got A.J's back."

Louis looked at her horrified, "Babe, how could you? Teasing A.J. is my life's purpose." he whined as she just laughed and dragged him off.

"Let's rest for a moment," I said and we carefully made our way over to a bench where we practically collapsed.

I put my hand in my pocket where the bracelet I had bought him was in. My hands played with it nervously before I took it out.

"Um...here, I got you this." I said quietly, handing it over, "It's sort of stupid but um, yeah."

He took it from me and held it up, a smile spreading across his face.

"I love it!" he said, putting it on quickly, before reaching into his pocket and pulling something out, "I er, got somethin' for you too."

He dangled a [url=http://loveaccessories.me/images/large/heart.jpg]locket[/url] infront of me, causing me to gasp.

"Niall it's beautiful!" I said, immediately taking my scarf off to put it on.

"Now, even when you go back to the States, you'll still have me with you always. Bit cheesy I know..." Niall said, clasping the necklace for me.

"No, no it's perfect." I said quietly, "And all I got you was a dumb bracelet."

Niall shook his head furiously, "No way, love!" he held up his hand with the bracelet on it, "It's on the same hand I hold me mic with. It'll be like you're holding my hand up every night, helping me sing." he smiled at me, brushing my hair back and giving me a kiss.

I smiled, not having thought about it like that.

"Come on let's take a picture." I said taking out my phone, "Okay ready...?"

Right as the picture was about to take, Niall's hand reached up to hold my cheek and his lips pressed against mine. I melted into the kiss, closing my eyes and savoring it as the camera took the photo.

"Beautiful." Niall said looking at it. It was a beautiful picture... sweet and cute.

"I was going to upload it to twitter. " I said, "But maybe not."

"What? Of course you should!" Niall said pouting, "It's a cute picture!"

"The fans though..." I muttered, "I don't want to upset them."

"Babe, look." Niall pressed his forehead against mine, "The real fans, the ones who mean the most to us and we mean the most to them, they'll be supportive. They'll love you just like they love us even if it hurts. Okay? They'll protect you from the nasty ones and so will I."

I smiled and looked down at my phone and typed out a tweet.

"@AliceJulietAJ hey guys! out ice skating with niall, lou&eleanor. takin a break! http://twitpic.com/huYja8793"

"There!" I said, "Tweeted."

"Good! I'ma retweet it." Niall said, "Now how about we go and get some food? That ice skating made me hungry."

I laughed and let him help me up, "Food sounds great!" I said. And as we walked over to the concessions, fans sent in tweets unbeknownst to both of us. Some were horrible, some were indifferent.

But most of all, there were so many happy to see Niall and I together.
