Sorry for the lack of updates. I had writer's block and I started getting involved in other stories, but I will try to post new chapters up soon. Reviews would be nice too. It helps me want to keep writing because reality is I've kind of lost interest in this story.

Alex's POV

"Why can't we just stay like this forever?" I sighed.

"I don't know. We can try but life doesn't work like that, unfortunately," Liam answered with a sigh.

"You're such a party pooper," I teased and rolled on top of him. I froze when I noticed his eyes were red and puffy. I looked at him and rubbed my thumbs on his cheeks.

He smiled and tried to convince me that everything's alright.

I pressed my lips onto his and smiled.

"Who's being a tease, now?" he asked as he pouted and crossed his arms.

I giggled at his childish reaction and kissed him full on the lips.

"Happy now?" I smirked

"I guess you can say that," he remarked.

I punched him on the arm playfully and said, "You're lucky you're my boyfriend, Liam James Payne or I wouldn't have let that slide."

"Oh you know you love me," he teased as he squeezed my cheeks.

I smiled and kissed him softly. He kissed back and I tightened my grip on his neck. He let his arms fall to my waist and kept a firm hold on it.

I pulled away and smiled against his lips.

He smiled also and I rested my head on his chest. I listened to his heartbeat and it was relaxing, to say the least.

I watched as the last rays of the sunlight disappeared and the sky became dark.

"Guys, let's go," Tai said as her and Harry got up from their blanket.

"Yeah I guess it's getting late," I sighed as I got up. I reached out my hand and helped Liam up.

"Thank you beautiful," he thanked me with a smile.

"Anything for you," I responded with a smile.

He grabbed my hand and interlocked our fingers.

All four of us walked back to Tai's house and went inside her room. We layed on top of her bed and talked about what we were going to do for the whole week.

Tai and I talked about going to the beach, going to the mall and going to the clubs. Basically that's all there is to do in Rhode Island, especially Providence. Well we could walk around downtown and see the water fire also. Either way we had plenty of things planned out for the week.

Liam and I stayed for another hour or two, then we left because it was getting late.

Tai's POV

Liam and Alex left and by 10:00, a lot of my relatives were gone. My parents and sisters were leaving soon to my aunt's house for karaoke. They asked if Harry and I wanted to come, but we declined the offer.

Harry was really tired, especially with all the flying him and Liam did.

"Wanna watch a movie, babe?" I asked.

"Yeah," Harry answered.

He went through his suitcase and found his favorite movie, Love Actually.

He put it in and layed on the couch. I giggled and sat next to him.

"Of course you would pick this movie," I giggled and rested my head on the crook of his neck.

He had his arm tight around my neck and he kissed my temple.

By the time the movie ended, I was starting to get tired and he was laughing.

I don't understand what he finds so funny about this movie.

I got up and grabbed some shorts and a tank top from my drawer and walked to the bathroom. I brushed my teeth, tied my hair up in a bun, and changed into my pjs.

When I stepped out of the bathroom and entered my room, he only had his boxers halfway on.

"Ahh!" I screamed in shock and turned around.

He jumped at my voice and quickly pulled them up. He then put on some shorts and a t-shirt.

He walked towards me and put his arm around my stomach, pulling me closer to him.

"I'm so sorry, babe," he apologized as he kissed the back of my neck.

"It's alright," I said with a smile.

I turned around and looked into his eyes and smiled.

"But next time try and get changed a little faster, you slow poke," I teased.

"Oh don't act like you didn't like what you saw," he teased.

My cheeks turned bright red and I giggled. I punched him playfully in the arm and said, "You're such a perv, Harold!"

"But you know you love me," he teased and poked my nose.

I collapsed onto the bed and yawned.

He layed beside me and wrapped his arms around my stomach, pulling me closer to him.

"Goodnight, beautiful," he said, as he kissed my cheek.

"Goodnight, handsome," I teased and closed my eyes.

Next morning

I woke up to the sound of my ringtone.

Katy Perry's on replay, she's on replay. DJ's got the floor to shake, the floor to shake

"Hello?"

"Hey, Tai. It's Amanda. Did I wake you up?" she asked.

"Yeah. Kind of."

"Sorry. I just wanted to let you know that I'm home from Paris."

"Awesome. I've missed you girl!" I cheered.

Harry groaned and opened his eyes.

"Morning," I said to him with a smile.

"Morning beautiful," he said, his voice low and husky.

He walked out of her room and walked his way towards the bathroom.

"Who were you talking to?"Amanda asked.

"No one," I lied.

"Come on Tai. You can tell me," she said.

"Promise not to freak out," I sighed.

"Yeah, why would I freak out though?" she asked curiously.

"That was Harry, Harry Styles," I let out.

"You're lying!" she choked.

"It's true," I defended.

"Can I talk to him?" she fangirled.

"Yeah, when he comes out of the bathroom," I answered.

"I wanna meet him!" she begged.

I can't believe she was still fangirling.

"Alright I'll stop by later today. Oh and you can come over later, so you can meet Liam and my friend Alex and we're gonna Skype with the other boys, so you can meet them too," I cheered.

"Oh my God! You're the best!" she exclaimed.

Harry walked in and wrapped his arms around my waist and pulled me from behind.

He kissed the back of my neck and said, "Who you talking to, beautiful?"

"My friend Amanda who's a Directioner. You wanna talk to her?" I asked.

"Yeah sure," he answered.

I handed him the phone.

Harry's POV

"Hey Amanda," I said.

"Hi Harry. You're Tai's boyfriend?" she asked.

"Yeah. We've been together for three weeks."

"Why didn't you tell me Tai?" she asked.

"The thing is that no one knows because Tai isn't ready to go public yet. It's not easy being the girlfriend of a celebrity. She'll get a lot of hate from people. That's why we haven't really told anyone," I explained.

"Yeah, I understand," she said.

"It was nice talking to you, Amanda."

"You too. Oh, by the way Tai said that you guys are coming over to see me. I live like across the street."

"Oh okay. Well I guess I'll see you later then."

"Yeah, you too," she said, and then hung up.

Tai and I walked downstairs and said hi to her family. Her mom made pancakes and Tai and I sat down and ate them with her Mom, Dad and two sisters.

"These pancakes are really good, Mrs. Rodriguez," I said, as I shoved another piece into my mouth.

"I'm glad you like them, Harry," she responded with a smile.

After breakfast we got ready to go to Amanda's house. Even though she was only wearing shorts and an oversized tee, she looked absolutely amazing.

"What?" she asked, confusion written all over her face.

"Nothing, it's just you look stunning," I smiled, a blush blatantly present on my cheeks.

She smiled and tried to cover her face, before dragging me out the door. I took in the fresh scent of summer and laced my fingers with Tai's. She froze awkwardly and looked around as if she was scared that people might see.

"We are in a small town. What paps are going to find me here? Plus, didn't you say that not a lot of people will notice me here?" I asked.

"Actually, a few girls will notice you as "Harry Styles from One Direction that were on Nickelodeon"," she said, her voice becoming slightly higher than usual.

I chuckled at her response and she responded with, "What? What's so funny?"

"Nothing, nothing at all," I said through chuckles.

She slapped me playfully on the arm and I responded with an, "Ouch!"

"I'm sorry. Did I hurt you? Do you want me to kiss it better?" she teased.

Yes, kissing would be nice," I smirked.

She kissed the spot where she hit me and just when she was about to kiss my cheek, I moved my head so her lips landed on mine instead. She melted into the kiss for a few second then pulled away.

"We're here," she smiled.

She knocked on the door and a few seconds later, a rather tall girl with dark green eyes and light brown, shoulder-length waves answered the door with a smile.

"Hey!" she answered with a squeal.

"Oh my god, I've missed you so much!" Tai squealed, throwing her arms around the girl tightly.

"I've missed you too, love," she smiled.

I coughed awkwardly and Tai quickly detached herself from her friend.

"Oh Amanda, this is Harry," she smiled.

"Hi Amanda," I grinned.

"Hey Harry," she smiled shyly.

"So let's head over to my house and we can chill outside and what not. You have your bikini with you, right?" Tai asked.

"Yeah, let's go!" she grinned, slowly coming out of her shell.

We walked back to the house and chilled in the pool. Liam and Alex arrived later on. We played truth or dare and never have I ever. Liam and I were out faster than I thought we would be, but then again these girls are definitely more innocent than we are. We decided to go inside and get ready for our Skype date with the rest of the boys who were all with Louis at our flat.

Louis was signed in and then their faces popped onto my screen.

"Hey mates!" Niall cheered enthusiastically.

"Hey boys!" Tai cheered.

Niall's POV

I smiled when I noticed there was a girl I've never seen before next to Tai.

"Hey Tai, who's your friend?" I asked, determined to know who this mystery girl was.

"Her name's Amanda. She lives across the street from me and she's also one of my bestest friends. She's also a Directioner. Actually her favorite is you, Nialler," she smirked.

I noticed that Amanda's face turned red and I smirked at her response.

"Don't be shy. Come out and say hi!" Louis cheered, trying to make the girl more comfortable.

She moved right in front of the screen and said, "Hey boys," with a grin.

I felt hypnotized by her beauty. She has dark green eyes and light brown waves that flow gracefully down a little bit passed her shoulders. She isn't really skinny which makes me a lot happier. I can't stand another bag a bones. I need a girl that could kind of keep up with me food wise. She has the most amazing smile. God damn it, she's breathtaking.

I didn't even notice how intense my staring was until Louis teased, "Take a picture, it'll last longer, mate," with a wicked grin on his face.

I blushed deeply while the rest of the group was in hysterics except for Amanda. She was looking down at the floor, trying to cover her now extremely pink cheeks.

"So boys, you'll be seeing more of Amanda because she's going over to University of London with us," Alex said with a smile.

Yes, I couldn't wait to see her again when school starts. She's so friendly and shy but when she gets out of her shell, she becomes super funny and she's a really smart girl.

"Well we got to go guys. It's midnight over here," Louis yawned.

"Alright boys, we'll see you guys soon," Tai smiled.

"Amanda, give me your number so I can call you," I said with a smile.

She smiled and told me her number. Her cheeks were constantly becoming red. I guess I sort of have an effect on her.

We logged off and I made sure that I would call her in the morning.

The Next Day

Harry's POV

I woke up this morning to the sound of singing coming from the bathroom and I smiled to myself. Tai's beautiful voice was music to my ears as I yawned and got myself up from the bed. A few minutes later, Tai walked in with a Red Sox shirt and shorts. I was slightly disappointed because she's one of those people who change inside the bathroom instead of coming out of the bathroom only wrapped in a towel.

"Do you want to go to the beach today? It's a Monday and a really nice day out," she smiled while sitting on my lap.

I gently pressed a kiss on her neck and replied with a, "Of course baby."

I continued to press kisses on her neck and she turned her body to face me, her legs tightly wrapped around my body. She leaned in and kissed me gently, her arms wrapping around my neck. I kissed her back, my arms traveling down her back and my hands gripping her waist. She pulled away and got up, leaving me in shock. I got up also and decided to get ready so that we could go early. I picked up my phone and texted Liam.

Hey Li, do you and Alex wanna go to the beach today with me and Tai? It's gonna be a nice day :) – Haz xx

Yeah sure. Pick us up in an hour? – Li xx

Yeah. See you in an hour :) – Haz xx

An hour later, we showed up at Alex's house and picked up Alex and Liam and we made our way to the beach.

"What beach are we going to, Tai?" Alex asked.

"We're going to Hopkinton Beach in Massachusetts. My family goes there all the time," Tai answered with a smile.

"How much is it over there?" Alex asked.

"Five dollars for each car," She answered while keeping her eyes focused on the road.

I spent most of the car ride holding Tai's hand and just smiling at her. She's absolutely gorgeous and I'm lucky to have a girl like her. I rather have someone fun and energetic like her then some fake gold digger. Tai wasn't after my fame or money, in fact she hated that I always wanted to pay for her. I caught a couple glances at Alex and Liam and saw how they were cuddling in the backseat. I haven't seen Liam this happy with a girl since Danielle and I'm glad that he's finally moving on. That boy went through so much with her and he needs a fresh start. When we arrived at the beach, it was ten o'clock. That's the earliest I've been up and about in a long time. We grabbed our chairs and stuff with us and found a nice little spot under a tree to put our stuff down. Once we had everything settled, Liam and Alex got in a race to see who can get in the water the quickest.

"Race you to the water," Liam said.

"Oh, you're so on!" Alex giggled as she ran after Liam, who had a half-second head start.

I smiled as I watched them run along, having the time of their lives. Tai laid down on a chair. Her sunglasses were covering her eyes and she had the same bikini that she had on during her family barbecue.

"Could you do me a favor, babe?" she asked, breaking me from my thoughts.

"What is it, love?" I asked, sitting down beside her.

"Could you get me the bottle of sun screen and put in on my back?" she asked.

"Of course love," I replied with a smile.

I grabbed the bottle of the sunscreen a poured some into my hands before spreading it all over her back.

"Thanks baby," she smiled.

"Anything for you, love," I replied with a smile.

She got up from her chair and decided to lay on the blanket that was on top of the sand. She patted her hand next to her and I sat next to her.

"You know this probably has to be the best summer I've had," she smiled.

"Oh really, and what makes it so great?" I asked, raising an eyebrow.

"Hmm, I think it's because I met a certain goofball with green eyes and curly brown hair and I really like him," she teased.

She climbed on top of me and straddled my waist, her body resting on my hips.

"Oh and who's this certain goofball?" I smirked.

"You," she smiled.

"Me? I'm flattered!" I teased.

"You're such a retard," she giggled as she leaned in and pressed her lips against mine, her breath tickling my lips.

"You're such a tease!" I yelled.

Alex's POV

Liam jumped into the water and yelled, "I win! What's my prize?"

"Since you cheated, your prize is this," I said as I splashed Liam.

"A kiss would've been a whole lot better," he pouted.

"I'm sorry but cheaters don't get kisses," I smirked.

He stuck his tongue out at me and I giggled.

"What's so funny, Garcia?" he asked.

"The fact that you're so childish, Payne," I giggled.

He went under water and grabbed my foot and dragged me under the water.

"Oh, you're so dead!" I screamed, once I reached the surface of the water.

I started swimming towards him but he was quicker. Just when I was about to give up, he came from behind and picked me up.

"Put me down, Liam!" I screamed.

"Never!" he yelled and he carried me out the water and towards Harry and Tai. When we got to the tree, we saw Harry and Tai making out.

"Get a room you too," Liam teased.

"Piss off!" Harry answered back, flipping Liam off.

Tai's cheeks were red and she got up and pulled Harry up as well.

"Aww did I ruin the love birds' moment of love?" Liam teased again.

"Liam if you don't shut up, say goodbye to any chance of having kids and I mean it!" Tai answered back.

Liam put his hands up in defeat and I just giggled at the look of horror on his face.

The rest of the day was spent with all four of us having the time of our lives. I started thinking about when Tai and I go over to London and how we could hang out even more. I could get used to the boys and us hanging out and going out, but then by that time, we'll have to be public with our relationships and I wonder how I'll be able to handle it. Honestly, I would do anything to have Liam and if that means I'll be putting myself danger, well that's the price I have to pay and I'm pretty sure Tai agrees with me and feels the same way.

We drove back home and I was absolutely tired. Who knew spending most of the day at the beach would tire you. I put my earphones into my ear and turned my iPod on. Heartbeat by Stereo Skyline came on.

So baby keep my heart beat b'beat beat beating,

I smiled as I closed my eyes and let sleep catch up to me. Today had to be one of the bestest days ever and I feel like this is just the beginning of the greatest time of my life.
