nineteen: waking up & trips to the zoo

We reach the top of the stairs and stand there for a few minutes. Niall turns to Claire and asks if we had a bucket anywhere. What is this boy up to? I laugh and shake my head as I look over at Harry, a confused look on my face. He raises his eyebrows and shrugs his shoulders, a cute smile on his face. “Niall, what are you even doing, mate?” Liam asks as Niall is heading into the bathroom to look for something, a bucket perhaps.

The faucet turns on and shuts off after a minute. I look at Claire, confusion visible on my face, as I try to figure out what he’s trying to do. She shrugs her shoulders and mouths an “I don’t even know” rolling her eyes. He was definitely up to something, that’s for sure. The door soon opens and he emerges with a bucket.

“Gon’ use this to wake up Louie and Zayn,” he says and begins to walk toward the room Louis was staying in first, I think. I look over at Claire and smile a bit and let a laugh pass through my lips. He was one weird guy, Niall.

“Alright,” Claire says with a laugh.

“Li, open that door for me, will ya?” Niall questions and points to the door we stood in front of, the bucket full of water, in his other hand. He nods and shakes his head, a smile on his face, laughing at his friend, and goes forward and pushes the door open. Niall walks into the room, a loud laugh leaving his lips as he goes over toward where Zayn, or Louis, was asleep. I can’t remember which room either of them were sleeping in.

“Niall, Z is gonna kill you for this, mate,” Liam laughs as Niall lifts the bucket, ready to dump it over the sleeping boy all snuggled in and comfortable looking in bed. “You know how much he hates water,” he mutters as the blonde tips the bucket and water splashes everywhere, spattering all over the sheets, which resulted in Zayn springing up in a quick manner, a look of annoyance and disapproval on his face.

“What the hell?” he shouts and looks at each of us and shakes his head and rolls his eyes when his eyes spot Niall. He lets out a groan of annoyance as he lies back down and pulls his comforter over to cover his face. “Fucking go away!” he yells, a bit muffled due to the sheets.

“Get up, ya lazy bum! We’re going out, if ya don’t get up, we’re leavin’ wi’out ya,” Niall says and goes forward to pull the sheets away from the sleeping boy. This was going to be fun…[i]not[/i].

“Ni, we’re all gonna go see if we can wake Louis, have fun waking Zayn,” Claire tells her boyfriend and motions for Harry, Liam and I to go over to Louis’ room across the hall. Claire knocks on the shut door in front of us and we get no response.

“Tommo, wake up, man!” Liam yells, banging on the door with his fist. “We’re going out and leavin’ wi’out ya if ya aren’t gettin’ up,” he calls and pounds his fist against the door a few more times. He drops his arm to his side, a sigh leaving his lips as he gives up.

It’s silent for a moment before we hear shuffling behind the door. It soon swings open, revealing a shirtless Louis standing there, sweat pants covering his lower half.

“Yeah?” he questions, rubbing his tired eyes with his fist, voice a bit raspy from just waking up, it seems. He lets out a loud yawn as he leans against the door frame. “What’s up, Payno?” he says looking at the tall boy who stood on the other side of Harry.

“Nothing really, mate, just trying to get Zayn up, because we’re all thinkin’ of goin’ out today. How do you feel about the zoo?” he asks the oldest boy who stood in front of us.

“I’m down to go, sounds fun, Payno,” he says with a smile and crosses his arms over his chest.

“Morning Haz, Avery,” he gives us a smile and a wink as he looks at us. I glance down to see Harry’s arm around my waist and smile a bit as I reach for his hand and lace my fingers with his.

“Morning,” I reply with a smile.

“Lemme go change then I’ll come help you lot wake Zayn,” Louis says as he looks at us, rubbing his sleepy eyes with his hand.

“Alright,” Liam and Niall mutter simultaneously. The two glance at each other and laugh faintly amongst one another. I smile a bit and turn so I can look at Harry. A smile adorns his lips as he gazes down at me. I smile and laugh a bit to myself as I glance down. He was so breathtakingly handsome. He leans forward and presses a chaste kiss to my forehead. As he begins to pull away, we hear a door shut.

“Hey, you two get a room!” Louis jokes with Harry and gives him a smirk.

“What? We weren’t even doing anything,” Harry states and pulls me close to him, his hand resting on my lower back, the cold rings on his fingers skimming across the exposed skin on my side that had risen up from my tank top.

“Sure, whatever you say, Styles,” he replies looking at Harry from the corner of his eye as he walks out into the hallway and begins making his way to Zayn’s room. We all slowly creep along behind Louis as he makes his way to Zayn’s room so he can wake the tired guy up.

As we wait, Harry, Claire, Liam and I decide to head downstairs and find something to do. It was getting pretty boring just standing there waiting for Louis, Niall and Zayn. Harry takes my hand in his and leads me toward the living room. I smile as I follow along beside him. He sits down on the couch and pulls me down along with him, a smile on his lips. I smile and let a laugh fall from my lips as I stare at the handsome boy beside me.

Harry smiles a bit and leans forward, his hands moving down my sides to pull me closer. I smile and lean toward him, his hands resting on my sides as I move my hand up to play with strands of his long hair that fell past his shoulder. I soon feel his lips against mine and I smile into the kiss. As we get a little lost in the moment, the two of us are soon interrupted by someone clearing their throat. Harry and I slowly part from each other and look over to the doorway to see Liam and Claire standing there, smiles on each of their faces.

“Hey, get a room you two love-birds!” Claire yells with a playful smirk on her lips.

“Shut up, I’m sure you and Niall do the same when you’re together,” I retort, a smile on my lips. As I turn to Harry, I notice a small smile on his lips.

“I don’t kiss and tell,” she replies and makes her way further into the room. I let out a small laugh and roll my eyes at her remark.

“So, are they about ready to go? I’m getting just bored sitting here,” I say as I feel Harry take my hand in his and rest it on my lap, our fingers intertwined.

“Just about,” I hear him mumble. “Didn’t seem like you were [i]that[/i] bored when we walked in, babe,” Liam replies with a smirk as he looks over at Harry and I. The four of us talk about random things that come to mind as we wait for the sluggish ones who seemed to be taking their sweet damn time. even though its only barely been a few minutes, I was getting tired of waiting; I’ve always been one to hate waiting for things, being the impatient person I am.

Before too long, laughter is heard. The three of us, Harry, Claire and Liam, all look over to see Zayn, Louis and Niall walk in the room.

“Someone’s [i]finally[/i] awake, welcome to the land of the living, Malik,” Harry jokes.

“Shu’ up,” he mumbles, a tiredness and annoyed look on his face.

“Alright, is everyone ready to get going? Fun long day ahead of us, yeah?” Louis asks staring at us.

“Yes!” I exclaim a bit on the louder side.

“I’m ready, I’m ready!” Niall says it just like Spongebob does. All of us laugh at his weirdness. He was a strange one but that was Niall for you. Harry and I stand up and I smile as he puts his arm around my waist. I mutter a soft “sorry, one second,” before I begin to make my way back toward the stairs.

“Where you going, love? Forget something?” Harry questions me. I turn and give him a nod.

“My phone and purse, why?” I ask with a smile.

“No reason, just curious,” he replies and walks toward me.

“I’ll go get it for you, Aves, you go wait outside with the rest of the lot and I’ll be right there,” he says and kisses my cheek before turning and swiftly making his way up the stairs.

“Alright,” I tell him with a sigh. “It’s on my dresser!” I yell toward him before I begin to walk toward the front door. I walk outside to the front porch to find Louis, Liam and Zayn talking. Niall and Claire were over there somewhere.

“Let’s go! Want to get t’ere and see t’e monkeys, they’re my favorite!” Niall yells toward us, excitement in his voice. I smile and laugh a bit at how excited Niall was. Has he never been before?

“Here you are, babe,” I turn to see Harry walking toward me, my purse resting in his hand.

“Thank you, Harry,” I tell him with a smile and give him a quick kiss on the lips.

“What ‘ye waitin’ for, guys? Let’s get goin’!” Niall calls again.

“Coming Nialler lad!” Louis exclaims in reply as he, Liam and Zayn make their way to the car where Claire and Niall sat in, waiting for us.

Harry and I get in the back, next to Louis. I was stuck in the middle of them. Claire soon begins driving and we are on our way to the zoo. The semi-small zoo here in Los Angeles was nothing compared to the one in San Diego, which has always been my favorite, but it’s about a three hour drive. About twenty minutes later, we arrive at the Los Angeles Zoo.

Claire finds a spot and parks the car. Pretty soon, we are all heading up to the entrance so we can get in. After paying the entry fee, we finally enter the zoo. It was going to be a fun day with some pretty awesome people. Claire and Niall go off to a different part of the zoo, leaving Harry and I with Liam, Louis and Zayn. The three guys soon walk off to wherever their feet led them, leaving Harry and I standing there.

“Where to, Aves?” he asks, looking at me, a smile adorning his lips. I shrug my shoulders and give him a smile as I look at him. He smiles and gives me a kiss on the cheek before pulling on my hand. We are soon going over to look at an exhibit that was nearby and make our way around the zoo from there.

Before too long, we somehow manage to run into Liam, Zayn and Louis, who were standing near the tiger exhibit. Liam was wearing a hat backwards on his head. He didn’t have it earlier so I’m thinking he must have bought it.

“Nice hat, Li,” Harry tells him.

“Thanks, Harry,” he replies.

Harry and I walk around with the three of them – Louis, Liam and Zayn – for a while before Liam’s phone begins to go off, playing some song. He goes over so he can pick up the call. Harry and I stand there looking through the glass at the exhibit we were at, which was green with a bunch of shrubbery. I notice him pull out his phone and snap a picture, probably of whatever was behind the glass.

“Is there even anything in there? I don’t see anything,” Louis says looking over at Zayn and then over to me and Harry who were off to his left side.

“No idea,” I shrug my shoulders as I look around to see if I spot anything through the semi-dirty glass. “Some exhibit with monkeys I guess,” I say and point to the sign in front of the glass. The four of us talk with each other for the next few minutes while we wait for Liam. Harry wraps his arms around me and I can’t help but smile to myself. He rests his chin on my shoulder as I stare ahead, his hands resting on my hips.

Before too long, I look over to see Liam walking back over to us, a big smile on his face. “What’s with the cheesy smile, Payno?” Louis asks him, a smirk on his lips.

“Sophia just landed at LAX and was asking if I could come and pick her up,” he says.

“Go to her then, Liam, get your girl,” Harry tells Liam.

“I will Harry, but need to find a way to get there, first,” he replies and types in something on his phone. He holds the phone up to his ear, calling someone, Niall, perhaps?

“Niall! Where you and Claire at, mate? Sophia called and is waiting at LAX for me,” he says into the phone.

“Okay, meet you there,” Liam replies before stuffing his phone back into his pocket.

“You lot coming? Niall mentioned there’s a place to get food near the front, if you’re hungry,” he says, turning to us. I look over to Harry first and then over at Zayn and Louis who stood a little ways over from us.

“Yeah, might as well,” I reply as I reach for Harry’s hand and lace my fingers through his.

“Ya know, I used to have a tattoo that said ‘might as well’; it was where the ferns are now,” he tells me with a smile. I chuckle at his comment and roll my eyes. We are following behind Liam to the front entrance to meet up with Niall and Claire so Liam can get the keys and go pick up his girlfriend.

“There’s the Irish one,” Liam calls out and points ahead as we approach the entrance of the zoo. Sure enough, there are Claire and Niall standing there, a cup in each of their hands. Niall chuckles loudly, earning a laugh from each of us; man was his laugh contagious. He laughs at everything.

“Claire, you won’t mind if I borrow your car to go pick Sophia up, do you?” Liam asks Claire as we reach them.

“I guess not, but remember, if anything happens to it, I’ll kick you so hard, Liam!” she raises her voice at him, eyebrows raised.

“Alright,” he smiles. “I won’t mess up your precious car,” he tells her and puts his hand out to take the keys.

“Sure...” she mutters before handing him the keys. Niall laughs loudly and presses a kiss to his girlfriend’s cheek.

“Be back in a little bit with Sophia, she can’t wait to meet you,” Liam tells me and Claire, with a smile on his face.

“Can’t wait either, now go, she’s waiting…” Claire tells him and pushes him in the shoulder. “Go before I snatch the keys back,” she mutters in a snappy tone. I can’t help but giggle at my best friend’s actions, she was funny to watch, especially when she got mad. Liam soon walks off to the parking lot to go head over to the airport, which wasn’t too far from here.

“Where did you get those drinks? I’m getting thirsty for something myself,” I ask as I look over at my best friend.

“A little ways over there, I think,” Claire replies and points over to her right, my left.

“Could use a drink myself; want to head over there, Aves?” Harry asks, looking at me.

I give him a nod and walk forward, pulling on his hand. The two of us begin to make our way over to wherever she said it was. We soon come upon the drink cart, along with a little gift shop next to it. Once we get our drinks, Harry and I go back over to where Claire, Niall, Louis and Zayn were waiting for us. As a group, we all begin to venture around the park.
