More Than This
"When he opens his arms and holds you close tonight. It just don't feel right, 'cause I can love you more than this." Jules heard someone moan. She groaned and turned her head to where the moaning was.
In the other bed next to hers was Niall. His eyes were closed and he held his stomach. He had a look of pain.
"I've never had the words to say; but now I'm asking you to stay for a little while inside my arms. And as you close your eyes tonight, I pray that you will see the light, that's shining from the stars above." He sang again. Jules was confused on why he was singing in his sleep.
Jules quietly got up from her comfortable new bed and tiptoed her way to Niall. He was adorable, snuggling up into his pillow. He's like a little puppy, she thought. She lightly tapped on his shoulder. The tap was than a feather falling onto a soft pillow. Jules didn't think he'd wake up, but she was wrong. Niall suddenly shot up, looking around the room frantically until his eyes met Jules. He sighed in relief.
"Niall, what's wrong?" Jules asked, worry consumed her voice as she sat down on the bed next to Niall. Niall pulled his eyes away from the pillow. His eyes showed Jules how confused he was by what she had said.
Jules caught on that he didn't know what she was talking about, "Why were you sleep singing?"
Niall understood her and let out a 'oh' stretching out the 'O'. He then frowned as he realized they were talking about his sleep singing.
"That's my sleep singing. I sing in my sleep when I'm hungry. I eat a lot, so I guess it's normal for my body to miss food. I have no idea why I sing though. I just love food." He told her truthfully, adding a smirk at the end.
Jules found it hard to believe that something like that could actually happen. She hasn't heard of such a thing before. She also found it hard to believe that Niall ate a lot. He was as skinny as a pencil, but she understood him. She had the same thing. Not the sleep singing, but the eating. Jules loved eating and she wouldn't gain anything. She didn't know what it was called.
She nodded, "I know what you mean. Not the sleep singing, the food. Food is my heaven. I'll eat about anything. I'll actually feel like eating now. What can I say, I just love food." She smirked. He chuckled.
Jules was an amazing person even though Niall just met her. He had a feeling that they would be great best friends. They could even be food pals! He just hoped she could cook and even if she couldn't, he would be fine with that.
"Hey, how about we fill our hunger right now. It's only-" He looked at the digital clock on his bed stand. "-it's almost morning, so lets have some breakfast."
They both chuckled and got off the bed. Jules pushed and smoothed her shorts down, which had risen a little. They walked out of the bedroom and passed the living room. When they passed through, Jules looked out the large window and had a glimpse of the sun rising.
Even though Jules was usually shy, she felt like Niall was an excellent person who could help her leave her shell she's been carring for a long time. He was the first boy from One Direction, besides Liam, who became her friend instantly. She knew that she would get along with the other boys and she didn't care that Niall and she only had two things in common. She just felt like they would bond more easily.
They walked into the kitchen and Niall sat himself on the counter. She didn't know how to cook excellent gourmet foods like Sierra, but she could cook grill cheese. She looked into the fridge and saw nothing but a gallon of water. The boys had a penthouse suite and they didn't have food stocked up? They didn't have food!
"Um, Niall?" She said, closing the fridge door. Niall was swinging his legs back and forth.
"What's up?" He asked. He stopped swinging his legs and jumped off the counter.
"You have no food, only a gallon of water." She bit her lip. She was going to starve! She was going to die! Okay, maybe she was exaggerating a bit, but there was no food! Niall's eyes widened as he was thinking the same thing as Jules.
"W-What? There can't be any food!" He opened the fridge and let the door hit the wall. He searched frantically throughout the shelves. He trembled when he found out there was no food.
"What are we gonna do?! We have to have more than this! More than a silly gallon of water!" He yelled, tugging on his hair. Jules pushed her hand through her hair multiple times.
"What's going on?" Niall and Jules heard someone breathe. There standing in his boxers and an NSYNC t-shirt holding a baseball bat, was Zayn. His hair was flat instead of gelled up like it usually is.
"What's going on? What's going on?! WE'RE OUT OF FOOD ZAYN! THAT'S WHAT'S GOING ON!" Niall screamed. Jules jumped, hitting her back against the counter. Zayn shushed him and ran to Liam and his room.
Niall was about to burst into tears. Zayn rushed back into the kitchen with a large bag of Salt and Vinegar chips. Niall beamed. He jumped onto Zayn and started kissing him all over his face, except his lips.
"Oh thank you, thank you, thank you! I love you man!" He jumped of Zayn and opened the bag. He started to stuff his face with chips.
Zayn looked horrified once he saw Niall eating the chips already. He grabbed Jules hand and dragged her to the door. He slipped his slippers on. Jules gave him a confused look.
"We have about fifteen minutes until he's hungry again." She widened her eyes. Zayn shoved his flip flops to her chest. She put them on, not caring that they were big. Then they left the penthouse.
