Finally the boys had some down time. After the long Better With U tour was finally coming to an end the feeling was bitter sweet for Niall.
He loved his new friends. They were so fun and energetic just like him and the other boys.
He especially took a liking to Kendall. Something about him intrigued Niall. How he lived so carelessly, but was still a bit shy. How he didn’t care what anyone thought of him, but was still open to everyone’s criticism. He was beautiful too. Niall felt strange explaining another boy as beautiful, but Kendall truly was it.
The boys were in Florida for the next two days and they all decided to head to the beach for the day.
Niall made sure to get in the same car as Kendall.
They ended up next to each other.
“Are beaches in Florida nice?” Niall asked.
“Well not as good as California.” Kendall joked. “But still pretty amazing.”
Niall laughed. Kendall stared out the window at all the wild life. He explained all the species to Niall the whole way to the beach. Niall loved how smart he was as well.
Everything about Kendall was perfect wasn’t it?
When the finally arrived at TW beach all the boys jumped out. They grabbed some beers and started drinking immediately.
Harry, Louis and Carlos soon jumped into the water. Soon after everyone followed.
“You coming in?” Kendall asked Niall.
“Um… Maybe later..” Niall said softly.
“Common it’s beautiful!” Kendall laughed.
“Eh… I don’t…” Niall trailed off.
“Don’t what?” Kendall asked.
“I don’t feel comfortable with my shirt off.” Niall admitted. He turn red right after he did. Kendall looked around quickly and then grabbed Niall’s hand. He pulled Niall into the small boat house.
“Why not?” Kendall asked.
“Because… It’s just stupid. Common just go in and have a good time and forget that…”
“I’m not going into the water until you do.” Kendall said sternly.
“Then you’re not going in.” Niall said sternly back.
“Niall look.” Kendall said. “You’re hot. Okay? Look at yourself. You attract millions of girls with your adorable smile and cute blonde hair. And you shouldn’t care what anyone else thinks anyway.”
Niall blushed. Did he really just call him hot?
“So I’m hot?” Niall joked.
Kendall laughed slightly. “You know what I mean.” He said softly. He stepped closer the Niall. “Now join me in the water or I’ll drag you in by your feet.”
Niall bit his lip. “I don’t want to.” He said.
“It’ll make me happy?” Kendall said.
“Why do you care so much? Just give up. Everyone else has.” Niall said looking at the ground.
“I care.” Kendall said. “A lot.”
“Why?” Niall asked.
“Because Niall.” He said stepping closer again. “I think you’re… What’s the word…” Kendall thought. “Hmmmm perfect.” He said.
Niall looked up. “Really?”
Once again Kendall took another step closer. This time bringing there faces and inch apart.
“Really.” Kendall whispered. He leaned in closer. Their lips were a centimetre away from each other. “Tell me if you want me to st-“
Niall cut Kendall off my connecting their lips. Niall reached up and grabbed the back of Kendall’s head and pulled him closer. Kendall kissed him back hard.
Slowly Kendall lifted Niall’s shirt. Niall put his hand on Kendall’s arm to stop him.
“It’s okay.” Kendall said. “Trust me.”
Niall let go and let Kendall pull his shirt over his head.
Niall let go of everything. The uncomfortableness he usually felt had faded as he kissed Kendall.
There was a knock at the door. The boys ripped apart from one another. Zayn came running in.
“Thank god!” He screamed. “Guys! Guys I found them!” He ran off.
Kendall and Niall looked at each other and laughed.
“Will you go in the water with me now?” Kendall asked.
“Can we pick up here later?” Niall asked.
Kendall blushed. “Yes.”
“Then yes.” Niall laughed. “Let’s go.”
