His eyes skim along my body greedily. I shift uncomfortably.
“ Mia!” Louis breaks the awkward silence
I walk down the last three steps of the staircase
“ What are you doing here?” Zayn asks
“ I had an interview,” I point to the stairs.
“ No wonder there’s more people than usual outside” Liam pats my shoulder
I hear a grunt come from behind me, I turn to see Nicki smiling sweetly at the boys but giving me an eye.
“ Oh, this is Nicki, my aunt and manager” I gesture her forward
“ Hello boys” She shakes each one of their hands.
After the introductions end, Nicki turns to me
“ I’ll be waiting in the car”
Before the exits the building she looks from Harry to me and widens her eyes at me, a wicked grin growing on her face.
“ Oh god” I mumble under my breath. Good thing Harry’s back was turned.
“ I should get going” I state
“ Are you going to Selena’s tonight?” Zayn asks me before I walk
“ Um probably, why?” I raise my eyebrows
“ She texted me and invited all of us over as well” He informs me
“ Ah, well I guess I’ll see you there” I smile nervously, why does being around these boys make my stomach turn.
“ Is Hunter coming?”
I turn surprised, and look at Harry
“ Probably not, he works late” I tell him, voice cold. Why does he want to know about Hunter?
“ One Direction, we’re ready for you” The receptionist walks out
“ Bye Mia!” Louis hugs me, picking me up off the ground.
“ Selena Marie Gomez, you invited One Direction over tonight?!” I shout through my phone.
I hear her squeal “ Yes? They’re my friends, I’m aloud to have them over”
She makes a fair point. I pause and sigh.
“ Now, go get changed and come over, it’s getting late” She bosses me.
I look at the clock on the radio, 5:46pm.
“ Okay I’ll see you in a few”
“ Hunter?” I call out as I enter the house
I hear nothing but see his jacket draped over the dinner chair in the kitchen.
“ Hunter?” I yell out again, walking down the hallway to our bedroom.
I see him, sitting on the edge of the bed, staring into nothing, a blank look on his face.
“ Baby, what’s wrong?” I run over to him
He scoffs and turns his head slightly, he’s mad about something.
“ What’s your problem?” I step back and cross my arms.
“ Nothing, aren’t you going to Selena’s ’?” He sneers
“ Yes, I am, what’s wrong with you?” I narrow my eyes
“ You’re never home anymore” He snaps
“ What are you talking about? I’m always home”
“ Just go, have fun” He raises his eyebrows sarcastically
“ You can come if you want” I ask softly, trying to change the mood.
“ No, you go” He says, still angry
“ I love you?” I say it like it’s a question
“ Go Mia” He waves me towards the door
“ Alright if you’re going to be like this then fine, have a nice night” I snap and wave back at him before exiting the door.
“ Mia!” Selena shouts as the door opens
I try to put on a smile, when on the inside I’m screaming.
“ Hi” I manage
She instantly know something’s wrong.
“ What’s wrong?” Her eyebrows crease.
I walk through the door “ Hunter and I have been fighting, he’s acting so weird”
I skim my eyes along the living room and find it empty
“ Where is everyone?”
“ Outside” She points
“ Hunter is probably upset that you’ve been so busy lately, that’s all” She reassures me something I already know.
“ Are you guys having…?” She nudges me
“ Sometimes…” I blush
We enter the patio to see everyone standing around on the deck, Niall is barbequing and Liam and Louis have set up a table for beer pong.
I can’t keep my eyes off her “ Harry, stop” Zayn nudges me
“ I know she’s hot and all but it’s kinda creepy”
“ I can’t help it,” I utter
Her head turns and her eyes meet mine. I try to pry them off but I fail.
I clear my throat and avert my eyes after a couple seconds. I can see the shadow of her silhouette approach Zayn and I.
“ Hello” I hear her voice and my head snaps up.
The wind blows a strand of her hair out of her face and she flashes a smile revealing perfect teeth.
“ I got the stereo set up!” Justin shouts from the deck and music starts booming.
Mia’s song starts playing and everyone begins laughing.
“ Change it Justin,” She shouts playfully
He winks at her and shouts “ Anything for you baby” While blowing her a kiss. Selena smacks the back of his head as he switches the song.
He switches it and Dreaming With A Broken Heart by John Mayer starts playing.
Zayn walks over to Perrie and starts dancing with her, same as almost every other couple present in the room.
Mia fidgets with her fingers awkwardly
“ Do you want to dance?” I ask nervously
She smiles “ Sure”
She wraps her arms around my neck, pulling me close.
I place my hands around her waist, meeting at the small in her back.
She looks up at me with her big brown eyes.
I swallow and get lost in them.
