Chapter 3


"Alright. Paul will be here soon, and all he wants is to see some of your dances. Can you do that?" Liam asked, and I started panicking for breath again. Could I do that? What if I forgot the steps? What if he dosen't like my style? What if I'm not pretty enough? What if he changes his mind?

"Stop doubting yourself! Alexa, love, you'll do amazing." Louis told me, grabbing my shoulders and giving me a little shake.

"Your right. I can do this. I can do this. But what if I skip ahead in the moves? What if the CD dosen't work? What if he dosen't like it? What if-"

"ALEXA!" they all shouted, and I snapped my mouth shut, looking at them with wide eyes.

"Sorry, I'm just really nervous. Are you guys sure this song is okay for me to do my routine too?" I asked, looking nervously at the stereo. I told them to pick out the song, and I would do the rountine for it. They, surprisingly, choose a Justin Bieber song, because they said he was the closest to their style. "How much longer till he get's here?" I asked, chewing on my lip as I looked at Liam.

"Not sure..." he admitted, looking down at his phone.

"Do I have time to run through the routine?" I asked, and they all shrugged.

"Go for it." Harry told me, and I nodded. Niall pressed play on the stereo, and I took a deep breath, going to my happy place as the bass started kicking in my chest. Justin's voice filled my head, and I was instantly swallowed up in the moves.

As the music ended, I stopped, starring at myself in the mirror as I took deep breaths. There was the obnoxious clapping of the boys, followed by another pair of hands. I spun around to see a middleaged man standing with the boys.

"Hi, Alexa, is it? I'm Paul." the man said, walking forward and sticking out his hand. I looked down at it, and then accepted.

"Yes, it's Alexa. Nice to meet you, Paul." I told him, flashing a smile. He smiled back, releasing my hand, and then taking a step back, looking me up and down.

"You are a very talented dancer." he complimented, walking in a circle around me. "You have the dancer look." he said, motioning to the spandex shorts and half top with a sports bra I was wearing. Along with the messy bun piled on my head. I looked away, feeling self concious as he critiqued me. "You are quite a beautiful young lady though. And I'm sure you have a very good personality that would add to the team. But I'm not sure." he said, and my heart dropped.

He changed his mind. He saw me dancing and didn't like it. I look like a slob, he hates it. He dosen't actually think I'm pretty. He thinks I'm shy. He thinks-

"I'll leave it up to the boys." he said, and I stared at him, shocked.

"YES!" They all shouted, running to me and giving me a hug. Louis got to me first, grabbing me into a normal hug, while Harry wrapped his arms around me from behind, both of them getting as close to me as possible. Niall, Zayn, and Liam all gathered around forming a giant group hug.

"Guys... Can't... Breath..." I told them, taking in sharp breaths.

"Niall, get off my back!" Louis laughed when Niall jumped onto his back for a piggy back ride.

"Woah horsey woah!" Niall shouted and we all started laughing.

"That looks like fun!" Zayn shouted, and then jumped on Liams back. Liam laughed, but then started running around. Louis and Liam ran up to each other, making horse noises, while Niall and Zayn faked a sword fight.

"I've got an open back." Harry told me, turning around and wiggling his butt. I giggled but then jumped on his back. He ran over to the boys like I weighed nothing, and I joined in on the sword fight, and ended up winning by knocking Niall and Zayn off of the backs of their 'noble steeds'.

"We won, we won. In your FACES!" Harry shouted as I jumped off of his back, laughing. He grabbed me up into a hug, spinning me around. I was giggling and laughing like crazy. Hairy had a cheeky grin on his face, his accent so adorable as he rubbed it in the other guys faces.

"Harry, calm down." I laughed, grabbing onto his arm.

"Yeah Harry. Calm down." the boys teased, and Harry stuck his tongue out at them all.

"Alright, Alexa. Rehersal is at five o'clock tonight. Come and see if you can pick up the rountine. If you can, your on, sunday night." Paul told me walking towards the door. "By the way, welcome to the family." he said with a smile, before turning and leaving.

"Yay yay yay yay yay!" the boys shouted, grabbing me into a hug once more and jumping up and down.

"Can you guys calm down enough to help me pack?" I teased, and they all nodded, smiling over at me. "Alright, first. I"m starving. Let's get some lunch." I told them, rubbing my hands together, and they all agreed.

"Where are we going?" Niall asked as I turned to Louis.

"Keys? I'm driving." I told him, holding out my hand, and he narrowed his eyes at me. "You don't know LA like I do." I reminded him, wiggling my fingers. He sighed, but then pulled out his keys and gave them to me. "And Niall, in response. We're going to my favorite resturaunt." I told him, and the boys smiled.

"What's it called?" Niall asked as we walked to Louis car. He had a porsche, so we all had to squeeze in, but it wasn't too bad. Louis grabbed the passenger seat, and the other four squished themselves in the back.

"Nando's." I told Niall as I slid the keys into the ignition, and all of their jaws dropped. "What?" I asked, looking back at all of them with my eyebrow raised.

"I think I just fell in love." Niall sighed, looking at me dreamily, and I laughed in confusion.

"Nando's is our favorite resturaunt. Escpecially Niall." Liam told me, and I nodded a soft 'oh' escaping my lips.

"Well then I guess we all have something in common." I told them, and they laughed. Niall leaned forward as I pulled out of the parking space and placed a giant sloppy kiss on my cheek. "Ew Nialler, that's grody." I told him, and they all laughed.

"Grody?" Zayn asked, raising in eyebrow.

"I"m from America. I"m strange." I reminded them, and they all chuckled softly.

It was a little bit of a drive, since the resturaunt was at the soutern part of the city, but it didn't really matter. Reaching out wiht my right hand, I started scrolling through till I reached 102.7 KISS FM. Usher's new song Scream had just come on, and I turned up the dial, mouthing along to the words with an antimated face, and pulling goofy faces at the boys as I wiggled around in my seat. The boys started dancing along, and we were all laughing, trying to speak over the loud music that I refused to turn down.

About halfway there, their song One Thing came on and I turned it all the way down.

"Hey! We like that song." Harry teased, poking my arm.

"I want to hear you sing it." I told them, and they all looked at each other. "I"m waiting." I told them in a sing song voice, and Liam picked up on his part. They all had such beautiful voices, and I started thinking of a routine in my head, just out of habbit.

We pulled into the resturaunt just as the song ended, and Niall burst out of the car.

"NANDO'S!" he screamed, opening his arms wide as he looked at the building. I ran around and jumped on his back. He laughed, grabbing onto my legs while I wrapped my arms around his neck. He started running around, jumping up and down and making me laugh like crazy.

"Woah!" I shouted when Niall dumped me off. I braced for the impact of the ground, but it never came. Opening my eyes I saw Harry smiling down at me as his arms tightened around me.

"Careful there love. Don't hurt yourself." he said sweetly, setting me back on my feet.

"Thanks." I told him blushing slightly. "Alrighty, let's go." I told the rest of them, coughing awkwardly.

"Naww does wittle Harry have a cwush?" Liam teased, pinching Harry's cheeks. Harry laughed but shoved Liam off of him. Louis was strangley quiet while Zayn gave him a look.

"OH EMM GEE! You guys are ONE DIRECTION!" the hostess squealed, looking at the boys. "Table for five?" she asked, looking at them all.

"Six." Liam told her, wrapping an arm around my shoulder. I smiled up at him, and the hostess turned and glared at me, before plastering a fake smile on her cherry red lips.

"Right this way." she said, walking towards the back of the resturaunt. She tried way to hard to sway her hips as Harry followed after her, watching.

"Wh o re." I coughed out loudly, coughing more afterward to try and cover it up. She turned and glared at me again while I beat on my chest. "Stupid tickle." I said, coughing again. She narrowed her eyes as we sat down. Niall, Zayn and Liam sat in one side of the booth will I slid inbetween Harry and Louis. The boys were trying not to laugh as the hostess laid down our menus.

"Someone will be out shortly." she spat out, that fake smile back on her face. As soon as she walked away, the guys burst out laughing.

"Only you Alexa. Only you." Liam muttered, shaking his head with a soft chuckle.

"Woah! I got Liam to laugh? Finally!" I shouted, and that just made them laugh more.

"Smile!" Zayn shouted, holding his phone out in the air to get all of us. I smiled obnoxiously, and when he looked at the picture, he started laughing before looking at me. "Do you have a twitter?" he asked, and I gave him the 'duh' look.

"@AlexaThing." I told him, and he nodded. I pulled my iPhone out along with the rest of them, and they all followed me, while I followed them back. Zayn posted the picture.

'Out for lunch with the group! @Real_Liam_Payne, @Harry_Styles, @Louis_Tomlinson, @NiallOfficial, @AlexaThing #Nando's'

Instantly, the picture had a bunch of comments along the lines of 'who is she?' 'is she your girlfriend?' 'is Harry still single?'. I laughed at some of the things people were saying. They were already spreading rumors that I was dating Harry, or Louis, or both. Really? I would never have a relationshiop involving three people.

"Do you guys want someting to drink besides water?" I asked , looking at all of them, then glancing towards the bar where you got your drinks.

"Nah, we're fine." Liam said and I nodded.

"Harry, let me out please." I reminded him, motioning for him to scoot out of the booth. He slid out, and I followed, walking back to the bar.

"How may I help you?" a younger, college age guy asked as I leaned up against the bar.

"Can I get a lemonade please?" I asked, batting my eyelashes. He nodded with a big grin, and grabbed a cup, going to the other side of the bar. I looked back to see the guys starring, and Harry with his phone pointed at me. Leaning my back against the bar, I pulled my leg up and pose slightly, in a teasing way before blowing a kiss and winking at him. The other guys laughed, and Harry looked away, awkwardly.

"Here you go miss." the bartender told me as he walked back over to me, slinging his towel over his shoulder.

"Thank you." I told him sweetly, grabbing the glass and taking a sip. Turning, I started walking towards the boys before sending a flirty look over my shoulder with a wink.

"You are a bigger flirt than Harry!" Zayn exclaimed when I sat down again, pulling out my phone.

"And we ordered for you. We all got the Peri Peri Chicken." Liam told me, and I nodded, flashing a smile.

"Thanks." I muttered, looking through my phone. going back on twitter, I saw a slow mow picture slide type thingy of me blowing the kiss and winking at Harry.

'Looking might fine, she is. @AlexaThing'

"Harry!" I shouted, smacking his arm.

"What?" he asked in mock shock, though he was stiffling a laugh along with the other guys. "You can't just tease us like that and not expect a punishment." he smirked, and I moved closer to him, almost straddling him. The other guys were all yelling obnoxiously.

"YEAH HARRY GET SOME!" Zayn was shouting, and they were all whistling.

"What kind of punishment?" I asked him innocently, moving my face closer to his. He gulped hard, looking at me nervously. "I've been a very bad girl Harry." I whispered in his ear, grabbing onto the front of his shirt as I kissed his neck, close to where most guys sweet spot was. He bit his lip, and I felt him getting 'excited'. I leaned in like I was about to kiss him, and he closed his eyes. I whipped my head away and then leaned back in my seat, grabbing my lemonade and sipping on it. I couldn't help but look down, and he seemed to be very... gifted in the manhood region.

The guys were all laughing their heads off as I sat there, trying not to laugh. He narrowed his eyes at me and then smirked.

"Kin k y, I like." he told me with a growl. My eyes grew wide and I almost started choking on my drink. I couldn't help but start laughing, my eyes squeezing shut and my loud laughter breaking out as I grasped my stomach. Oh my god that was hilarious.

"Here you folks go, enjoy." The waitress, an older woman, thank god, said as she placed out food down in front of us. I instantly dug in, practically mimicking Niall as we gorged. My plate was the first one clean.

"Where does it go?" Louis asked, lifting up my arms and shirt, looking at my stomach.

"Hey!" I laughed, swatting his hands away.

"You are officially my best friend." Niall told me, and I nodded.

"What about us?" the guys said in fake horror.

"You guys have Larry Stylinson and Ziam. Your fine." I reminded them, and Niall's face brightened up.

"What would our celebrity name be?" He asked, and I thought about it for a minute.

"Nilexa." I told him, and the guys all laughed.

"It sounds like a disease. "Louis teased me, and I stuck my tongue out at him.

"Yeah, an eating disorder." Harry said and we all started cracking up.

"It's perfect!" Niall and I shouted at the same time, smacking out hands together.

"Harry switch places with Niall." I told Harry, and he turned to look at me. "Pleaseeee." I begged, giving him the puppy dog eyes.

"Oh my god it really is impossible to resist." he said, getting up and moving. Niall punched the air in success, and then sat next to me, taking out his iPhone and snapping a picture of us, both sticking our tongues out. I read over his shoulder as he uploaded the picture to twitter.

'My other half <3 #Nilexaforever! @AlexaThing #Nando's #FOOD' he sent, and over the course of the next few minutes #Nilexaforever! was trending. It was unbelievable. I had already gained like five thousand followers since the first photo Zayn had posted only forty-five minutes ago.

"Are you going to finish that?" I asked, looking over at Louis plate.

"Go for it." I told me, laughing. I grabbed the plate and placed it between Niall and I, both of us devoring the contents of the plates in only a few minutes. Liam snapped a picture of us with our heads bent low over the plate. I made sure to check his post, once again. We're really obsessed with our twitter.

'Nilexa enjoying the rest of @Louis_Tomlinson's Peri Pei Chicken! @AlexaThing @OfficialNiall #NilexaForever! #Nando's'

Leaning back in the booth, I grabbed my lemonade, sipping away, smiling and laughing along with the boys as they shared stories and talked about random things.

"Here's your check." the waitress told us with a smile, laying the bill on the table. Everybody reached into their pockets while I slid the case off my iPhone, my money slipping into my hand.

"Put it away." Louis told me, looking at the money in my hand.

"I can pay for my own food, thank you very much." I told him, turning up my nose.

"Well, you won't be paying for anything with us around." Harry told me, and they all placed some money into the little folder thing.

"Well thank you kind sirs." I told them in a fake posh accent. It actually didn't sound too bad. They all laughed, looking at me. "I should probably go get packing though." I reminded them, and they nodded. We got out of the booth, leaving a tip on the table as we walked to the door. The hostess smiled flirtily to the boys as we walked past, but they just ignored her, talking to me. As we walked out the door, I turned and stuck my tongue out at her before running to catch up to the boys.

"I call shot gun!" Harry shouted, running to the passenger door and jumping in.

"Louis, I"ll give you directions. I don't want to drive." I told him, tossing him his keys. He caught them with one hand, and then pulled open the drivers door. Liam, Zayn and Niall climbed into the back, and I layed across their laps, resting my head on Niall's chest. "Hey best friend." I said, smiling up at him.

"Hello best friend." he said back, a grin on his face.

"Louis." I said, gaining his attention as he turned the keys in the ignition. "Go straight, turn left at the second stop light. Right at the third stop sign, and then the apartment building is just a couple of blocks." I told him, feeling my eyes grow heavy. All of the dancing this morning made me tired, not to mention my belly full of yummy Nando's. "Will you sing me something?" I asked all of them, and Liam turned to me.

"What do you want to hear?" he asked, and I thought of the songs I knew by them.

"Gotta be you." I told him, a small smile on my face as they started singing. This tour sure was going to be fun.
