“What are you doing today?” Niall asked, looking at Lindsay who was knelt in front of her suitcase, trying to find something to where for the day. It was almost eight-thirty the next morning, September 4th, and Lindsay and Niall had both woken up ridiculously early thanks to jetlag.
Now, Niall was laying on Lindsay’s bed in a t-shirt and sweatpants, before he went off to rehearsals, and Lindsay was getting ready to see Amelia, one of her closest friends who had moved to LA for her gap year.
“Uh, I’m dropping round to Amelia’s new flat, and that’s all I know; she says she has surprises for me, so I’m a bit scared.” Lindsay sighed, pulling out some clothes for the day.
“Everyone loves a surprise,” Niall chuckled, throwing his iPhone up and down over his head while he lay with his head on Lindsay’s pillows. Just then, his iPhone missed his hands and smacked his forehead.
“Besides that one!” Lindsay laughed as Niall cursed and rubbed his forehead. “Get ice from the bucket and put it on your forehead, you knob, you don’t need a black eye before your performance!”
Niall chuckled and cursed once more as he walked over to the ice bucket, which Lindsay had filled with ice. Lindsay grabbed a washcloth from the bathroom and tossed it at him, before closing the bathroom door to get changed.
Lindsay slid into her mint green bikini, which had a bandeau-style top and slid her clothes over top. She was wearing a black silk t-shirt tucked into high-waisted denim shorts and black t-strap gladiator sandals. She had showered early that morning and her golden blonde waves were middle-parted, straight, and down and she wore a bit of concealer under her eyes and a layer of mascara.
Lindsay walked out of her bedroom and smiled as she saw Niall sitting on the bed, with ice over his forehead. “Are you alright?” Lindsay asked, gently moving his hand and the ice away from the slightly red skin.
“Better now,” Niall said, looking at Lindsay in her shorts and her long, thing legs. Lindsay laughed, shaking her head and placed his hand and the ice back on his forehead. “You look amazing.” He breathed.
“Thanks,” Lindsay smiled. She grabbed her white and walked back over to where Niall was sitting on her bed. “Smile!” She laughed, flipping the camera on.
Niall frowned, still holding the ice over her forehead, as Lindsay snapped a photo. She laughed as she locked her phone. Lindsay heard a knock on her door and she walked over, opening it, without even checking the peep-hole to see who it was. They had said that they had the whole floor to themselves, so she didn’t think twice.
“Good morning!” Lindsay laughed as she saw Louis standing in the hallway.
“Morning, love,” Louis smiled. “Is Niall in here?” He asked. Lindsay nodded and gestured towards the bed, where Niall was seated with his ice. Louis cracked up as soon as he saw his bandmate. “Mate, what the fuck did you do? Wild time with Lindsay?”
“Not exactly,” Niall laughed. Lindsay gestured for Louis to come in and he did, walking over to Niall. “I was throwing my phone up and down and then it hit me.”
“I always knew you had bad hand-eye coordination!” Louis laughed as Niall removed the ice and revealed the slightly swollen spot just above his browbone. “But, as much as I’d love to stay and laugh at your stupidity, we need to go.” He smiled.
“You’re such a dick,” Niall laughed, standing up. “Have fun with Amelia and I’ll text you when I’m done so we can meet up.” He smiled, side-hugging Lindsay.
“Alright!” Lindsay exclaimed. “Hope your eye is okay! Have fun at rehearsal boys, smash it!” She laughed as Louis wrapped his arm around Niall’s shoulders.
“Bye, Lindsay!” Louis called, closing the door behind him. Lindsay walked over to the closet that was in her room and opened the door, where she had found out that there was a full-length mirror on the inside of the door. She observed her appearance and smiled.
Lindsay held her iPhone out in front of her, with the front camera on, and snapped a quick photo. She uploaded it onto Instagram with the caption ‘Moooorning’ before grabbing a bottle of Fiji water from the mini-fridge.
Lindsay was meant to be meeting Amelia at her new flat at nine, so she decided it was okay to leave then. Lindsay grabbed her Celine wallet that was black with a strip of neon yellow on the bottom, and slid her room key into one of the credit card slots. She also grabbed her black Ray Ban Clubmater sunglasses and headed out the door.
Lindsay was curious as to what the surprise was, but she was also extremely excited. Amelia was always someone to keep you on your toes and she was always fun, so Lindsay could only imagine the surprise was going to be amazing.
Lindsay made her way down to the lobby and once she was there, she walked over to the front desk. She wasn’t quite sure how to get a cab in Los Angeles, and the front desk had said they could call her one whenever she wanted, so she decided it was best to just have them do it for her.
“Good morning, miss, what can I do for you?” The man asked.
“I need a cab to 1010 Wilshire,” Lindsay smiled, recalling Amelia’s new apartment complex. The man nodded and swiftly called her a cab. Lindsay smiled. “Thank you so much!”
