Chapter 30: Part One
I was woken up by soft knocking on the door. I ignored it but it
didn’t stop. I was nearly back asleep until Sapphire and
Skye started moaning for me to see what it was. It was still dark
outside so on my way to the door; I looked at the digital clock
on the table. It read 3:10. I slowly opened the door and saw
three tall dark figures standing at the door.
I had a mini- heart attack before I realised who they belonged
to. ‘What the he/l, you guys? It’s, like, three in
“Can we please come in?” Harry innocently asked.
“Who is it, Emily?” Sapphire mumbled from her
“Niall, Harry and Liam,” I replied turning back to
“What do you want?” I asked impatiently.
“Won’t you get into trouble if they find you in
“Probably,” Niall said.
“Please, Em?” Liam asked.
“Oh, whatever. Come in. But we’re all asleep in
here… Like you all should be,” I trailed off
flopping on my bed and getting under the covers.
“Yes, mother,” Liam said sarcastically.
Skye sat up in her bed as Harry sat on the end of it facing her.
“What are you doing in here?” she asked sleepily.
“We just thought we’d say hi,” Harry said.
“At three in the morning?” Sapphire questioned, lying
on her back as Niall leaned on the wall next to her bed.
“Can we stay here tonight?” Liam asked.
“Well, yeah,” I said moving over so he could lie
down. His arm snaked around my waist. They were up to something
but I was too tired to do anymore investigating. Skye moved over
for Harry and Niall awkwardly stood near the wall.
“Don’t be such a baby, Niall,” Sapphire said
light-heartedly. Only she could say that to him without
anyone thinking it was rude. She moved over for him and he
reluctantly got into bed with her. “It’s not like
we’re doing anything,” she added quietly. We fell
back asleep pretty quickly.
“Emily,” Liam whispered. I grunted in response.
“Wake up. I want to show you something,” he
I turned onto my side to face him. “What time is it
“It’s five-thirty in the morning. Please, I really
want to show you this,” he added sweetly.
I quickly put a pair of shorts and a T-shirt on over my swimmers,
because Liam told me to wear them, and we walked out of the hotel
“Liam, it’s still dark.”
“I know but I have to show you this,” we looked both
ways then quickly ran across the deserted road. He guided me
along the paths and we arrived at the beach that the hotel faced
out onto. I smiled at him.
He took me to the sand and we sat down on a high peak. I rested
my head back on his shoulder. “I love you, Emily,” he
“I love you too,” I said kissing him. I shivered at
the breeze and he hugged me tighter. We sat there looking onto
the ocean, listening to the waves and slowly saw the sky turn a
pink-y, orange colour as the sun started to rise. We sat there
for half an hour, in silence and in awe, and watched until it was
fully in the sky.
My phone buzzed in my pocket and as I pulled it out, Liam’s
went off. “It’s a text from Niall,” he
“Mine’s from Harry,” I said reading it. They
wanted to know where we were. “We should probably get back
before you get into trouble.”
He smiled. “Let’s go.” We ran back to the
“Thank you, Liam. That was beautiful,” I said in the
lift going back to our level.
“It’s nothing, Emily. I’m glad I got to share
that with you.”
He went for his room, and I went to mine to see what the others
