Heey guys! Here’s the pref that everyone voted to be next! I actually think this may be my favourite pref that I’ve ever written! Hope you enjoy it :) xoxoxoxo
Harry (Your POV) – “He really has no idea?” your friend asked for the hundredth time and you nodded. “Not a clue, he thinks I don’t finish class for another month! I planned it this way so it would be a surprise! Niall helped me arrange it all,” you smiled at her as you dragged your suitcase off your bed so you could carry it downstairs. “I wish I could be there to see the look on his face, it’s going to be so romantic,” she pouted at you and you giggled just as your phone started to ring. “That’s my taxi here,” you said as you glanced at the screen, “I better get going, Australia awaits.” She giggled at you and gave you a quick hug before wishing you a safe flight. You made your way to Heathrow airport, barely getting caught in any traffic on the way. You checked in quickly and before you knew it, you were sitting in the departure lounge waiting for your flight. You were flying from London to Dubai, then from Dubai to Australia so you had a really long day ahead of you. You pulled out your phone and dialed Niall’s number. “Hello?” he answered happily. “Hey Niall, it’s Y/N, I’m just about to board my flight to Dubai, I just wanted to thank you for helping me arrange this. I can’t wait to see the look on his face,” you giggled. “No problem Y/N! Make sure you call me before you board your flight in Dubai; I’ll pick you up from the airport here with Paul and Liam. Have a safe trip!” he chirped down the phone and you thanked him again before hanging up so you could board your flight. The trip was long, very long. But you were at the edge of your seat like an excited child the whole time. Your stomach was full of butterflies and you couldn’t stop smiling at the thought of how surprised Harry was going to be to see you. You eventually arrived in Dubai and fulfilled your promise of calling Niall and telling him when you were about to board your flight to Australia. The flight seemed to last an eternity but you eventually landed and soon enough, Niall, Liam and Paul were greeting you at the gate. “Hey Y/N!” Liam beamed, “he has absolutely no idea, this is going to be so funny!” You giggled, “I kind of want to film his reaction,” you all got into a black car with tinted windows which drove you to the boys hotel and you were soon stood outside Harry’s room, heart racing and palms sweating. “I’m so nervous,” you mouthed to Niall and he rolled his eyes at you playfully. “You’ve come all this way to surprise him so don’t be a baby about it! Here,” he said as he handed you a copy of Harry’s room key and you slid it into the door. You pushed it open and you immediately heard footsteps approaching you from the bedroom. “Hey, I thought I told you not to…” Harry immediately stopped speaking when he saw you standing there. You grinned and ran towards him before throwing your arms around his neck and pressing your lips to his. “Hi babe!” you gushed and he remained frozen in place, not even hugging you back. “Are you surprised to see me?” you teased and you heard Niall and Liam come into the room behind you. “I thought you didn’t finish class till next month?” Harry asked in a weird tone that you couldn’t quite distinguish, he almost sounded like he was nervous. “Yeah, I lied,” you smiled, “I wanted to surprise you.” He softened a little and pressed his lips to yours. “I’m so happy to see you,” he smiled at you and wrapped his arms around your waist, kissing your neck softly. “Why don’t you go through to Niall’s room with the rest of the boys and I’ll come and find you in five minutes,” he whispered and you pulled away and raised an eyebrow at him. “But I want to stay here with you,” you whispered, “Harry I haven’t seen you in 3 months…” You could see that he was starting to panic, he kept glancing at his bathroom door every few seconds. “Harry, what’s going on?” you asked quietly, suddenly very aware that Niall and Liam were standing right behind you. “Y/N, please just go through, I’ll be there in a minute I promise,” he said frantically but you refused to move. “Not until you tell me what’s going on,” you said sternly and just as you finished speaking the bathroom door opened. A tall, slim blond girl walked out with only a small towel covering her naked body. “Harry, I thought you were coming to join me?” she asked before she looked around the room to find that they were no longer alone. You felt as if someone had just punched you in the stomach and ripped your heart out of your chest at the same time. You heard Liam and Niall gasp from behind you and the look on Harry’s face was a mixture of panic and upset. “Y/N, please it’s not what it looks like,” Harry walked towards you and you turned away slightly as a tear rolled down your cheek. “No Harry, I think it’s exactly what it looks like,” you muttered in reply. “Y/N…” Harry pleaded after a few seconds of silence and you groaned angrily. “I feel like such a fucking idiot. I flew all the way from London for this?” you began to sob and Harry grabbed a hold of your arm. “No, don’t touch me,” you yelled as you turned away from him and Niall walked over to you. “Come on Y/N, come and sit in my room until you figure out what to do,” he said softly as he put an arm around your shoulder, glaring at Harry in the process.
Liam (Your POV) - The fasten seatbelt sign lit up as you approached New York City. You stared out the window at all the huge buildings and your stomach churned uncomfortably. You were beyond excited and there were three reasons why. First of all, you had never been to New York before and it was somewhere you’d always dreamed of seeing. Second, you were visiting your boyfriend, Liam. He was on tour and you hadn’t seen him in months. Lastly, he didn’t know you were coming. You had arranged it all with Paul because you didn’t trust the boys to keep it a secret. You were to make your way from the airport to the hotel and Paul would meet you in the lobby so he could give you a copy of Liam’s room key. You couldn’t wait to see the look on his face and you couldn’t wait to be able to spend time with him again because you missed him like crazy. Your flight landed and you waited for what felt like an eternity at baggage claim before your suitcase eventually arrived. You stepped outside and managed to get a taxi fairly easily, although the closer you got to the hotel, the sicker you felt. Your heart almost stopped when your driver drove through the Lincoln tunnel and you caught your first glimpse of the Manhattan skyline. This was really happening. You arrived at the hotel a short while later and, as promised, Paul was waiting for you in the lobby. “Hi Y/N,” he beamed at you before giving you a warm, fatherly hug. “Here’s his key, him and the boys went to their rooms about twenty minutes ago so he should still be awake,” he smiled at you and gave you wink. “Thank you so much for this Paul, it really means a lot to me,” you gushed and he gave you a pat on the back. “Don’t mention it, go get him,” he laughed and you skipped happily towards the elevator. The ride up to his floor seemed to last forever and your heart rate quickened the closer you got. Your hands were shaking and your palms were beginning to sweat and you were sure your legs were going to collapse out from underneath you as you began to walk but you managed. You reached his door and slid the magnetic room key through the lock and the door clicked open. You pushed it open slowly and walked into the huge suite. You could hear voices’ coming through, from what you presumed was the living room area. You heard Niall’s loud laugh and a smile broke out onto your face, the boys were always sneaking into each other’s rooms after Paul had insisted they go to bed. You put your suitcase down quietly and began to sneak through the room. “Surprise,” you yelled as you walked into the room only for the word to catch in your throat as you let out a loud, horrified gasp. The boys were all sitting around a coffee table having a few drinks with a group of girls. Normally this would only bother you a little bit if it weren’t for the fact that a gorgeous, slim brunette girl was sitting on Liam’s lap with her lips attached to his neck as he ran his hand up and down her thigh. Everyone in the room turned round to look at you as you tried to catch the air that you felt like had been physically knocked out of your lungs. “Y/N, what are you doing here?” Liam asked, pushing the girl off of his lap and walking towards you. He extended his arms towards you and you gave him a look of sheer disgust. “Don’t even think about touching me Liam,” you spat at him and you could see the panic in his eyes. “Y/N, please, it was nothing…” he began to try and explain himself and you laughed obnoxiously in his face. “It sure looked like something to me Liam,” you forced your voice to stay strong; you didn’t want to break down… not in front of him at least. Every eye in the room was on the two of you as Liam began to stutter and his eyes began to water. “Y/N, just hear me out,” he practically whispered, his voice breaking as he spoke. You felt like you were about to implode due to the sheer rage and embarrassment you felt. “Y/N,” Liam said again as he reached out for you and your arm automatically reached up and you slapped him hard across the face. “I thought I told you not to fucking touch me,” you yelled, hot tears of rage now spilling down your cheeks. “Um, maybe we should go,” one of the girls said and you glared at her. “Yeah, maybe that would be a good idea,” you said sarcastically as they all scurried out of the room. “I think that I should go to,” you said, wiping your face and walking away from him but he followed you. “Y/N, no don’t please stay. Where are you going to go?” he asked you frantically as tears began falling down his cheeks. “I don’t care Liam, anywhere is better than here. As far as I’m concerned I never, ever want to see you again,” you yelled as you picked your suitcase up and walked out of the room. “Please Y/N, I love you,” he yelled after you but you kept walking. You heard footsteps running up behind you and you expected it to be Liam but you were surprised to turn round to find Harry standing behind you. “Y/N, where are you going to go?” he asked, sounding genuinely concerned but you just laughed at him. “Fuck you Harry,” you spat at him and he looked at you with a mixture of shock and confusion. “Don’t look at me like that Harry. The four of you are supposed to be my friends. You’re just as much in the wrong as he is. Now leave me alone,” you muttered as you continued to walk away, forcing yourself not to cry anymore.
Louis (Your POV) – “It sucks that you can’t come up and see me,” Louis muttered down the phone and you tried to stifle a giggle. “Yeah I know babe, I’ll see you in a couple of months though,” you tried to sound sad. “Yeah I guess, anyway, I have to go just now but I’ll call you tomorrow,” he muttered and you said goodbye quickly before hanging up and finally bursting into a fit of giggles. You were sitting on a train, which was taking you up to Edinburgh where Louis was currently staying before the boys were playing there the next day. You had told him you couldn’t come up to see him because of work commitments because you wanted to surprise him. You couldn’t wait to get there. The only people you had told were Liam and Zayn because they were two of your best friends so you knew you could trust them to keep the secret. Your train eventually pulled up at Waverly station and you skipped out into the platform and out onto the street. You were really lucky because they the Balmoral Hotel, the one that the boys were staying in, was literally next door to the station. You managed to sneak past the crowds of fans standing outside unnoticed and when you walked into the Lobby, you were greeted by Zayn and Liam, who both almost suffocated you with hugs. “Hey guys,” you giggled, “I’ve missed you so much,” you gushed. “Not as much as we’ve missed you,” they teased and you rolled your eyes. “Come on,” you said grabbing their hands and walking towards the elevators, “I wanna see my man,” you giggled and they rolled their eyes. “Don’t even have five minutes to talk to two of your best friends even though you haven’t seen us in over a month, typical,” Liam laughed and you hit him playfully on the arm. “I’ll talk to you later you loser, now lets go!” the ride up the boys’ floor was silent because you were too nervous and excited to speak and when you walked out onto the floor, Liam handed you Louis’ room key which he had managed to steal from him earlier on in the day without him realizing. You were just approaching Louis’ room when the door next to his swung open and Niall padded out into the corridor. His eyes widened in surprise when he saw you, “Y/N, what are you doing here?” he asked somewhat defensively. “Oh Hi Niall, nice to see you too,” you said sarcastically and he laughed nervously. “It’s nice to see you obviously,” he said, giving you a really awkward hug which was confusing because you and Niall got on great and always had the best times together so you didn’t really understand why he was acting so uncomfortable around you. “Well anyway, I’m off to surprise Louis so if you’d excuse me,” you laughed as you went to put the key in the door. “No! Wait, you can’t go in there,” Niall said frantically and you raised an eyebrow at him. “And why’s that?” you asked and he began to stutter. “Um, he’s changing?” he almost asked you instead of telling you. “You don’t sound very sure of yourself there Niall,” you laughed, “and plus, who cares? Nothing I haven’t seen before,” you slid the key into the lock and pushed the door open. “No, Y/N seriously don’t,” Niall said quickly but you ignored him and walked inside. You couldn’t see or hear anything for a moment but you eventually heard noises coming from the living room area of the suite so you walked through and you immediately understood why Niall didn’t want you to go inside. Louis was sitting on the couch with his tongue down some girls throat as she straddled him and grinded on his crotch. Your eyes almost popped out of your head at the sight and it was a good few seconds before they realized that they were no longer alone. They both looked round at you and the color immediately drained from Louis’ face. “Who’s that?” the girl asked and you gave her the fakest, bitchiest smile you could muster. “Hi, I’m Y/N, Louis’ long term girlfriend, nice to meet you,” you said, extending your hand for her to shake but she just stared at you. She immediately stood up and pulled her clothes on before running out the room leaving you and Louis alone whilst he stared at you with a stunned expression on his face. “Y/N, what are you doing here?” he asked, finally finding his voice. “Not important anymore,” you said shrugging, “because I’m leaving anyway.” You turned round and picked up your bag before you started walking back towards the door. “No Y/N, please wait, I only did it because I missed you so much,” he said frantically and you burst out laughing. “Don’t waste your breath Louis, just leave me alone.” You walked out the door to find Zayn and Liam standing in the hall looking completely stunned as Niall chewed on his lower lip nervously. “Y/N, are you okay?” Niall asked and you could have punched him then and there. “You knew Niall, you fucking knew about this? How many times as it happened?” you released your anger on him even though you knew Louis deserved it more but you knew that you’d break down if you started yelling at him. “Y/N, I’m so sorry,” he said, his voice shaking slightly and you scoffed at him. “Did you two know?” you asked, glaring at Liam and Zayn and they almost looked insulted. “Of course we didn’t know Y/N, are you serious?” Zayn asked, “Do you really think that we wouldn’t have told you? Or that we would have let you come up here if we did?” he asked and you dropped your gaze, ashamed that you had accused them of hiding it from you. “Come on, come to my room just now, you don’t know the area and I don’t want you wandering around alone,” Liam said as he put an arm around you shoulder and him and Zayn took you into his room. You could hear Louis sobbing in the hallway but you ignored him and it was only after you were in Liam’s room with him and Zayn that you finally allowed yourself to break down.
Niall (Your POV) – “Y/N, I really think you should come and visit him,” Zayn said softly. He had FaceTimed you in the middle of the night to talk about Niall. He said he was worried because he was really homesick and he had been missing you a lot. “Look, I’ll arrange everything, you’re finished classes for now and you’d get a couple of weeks in the states? What have you got to lose?” he asked and you smiled and nodded. You didn’t need much convincing. You hadn’t seen Niall in months and you missed him terribly. Forget the fact that they were in LA, you were pretty sure you would have gone anywhere to see him, especially because he was feeling so down lately. “You don’t have to ask me twice,” you replied and Zayn smiled at you. “Great, I’ll get Paul or someone to arrange your flights and give you a call tomorrow, see you soon! Sorry again for waking you,” he giggled and you rolled your eyes. “Should I tell him I’m coming?” you asked and he shook his head. “No, let’s make it a surprise,” he replied and you agreed before saying goodbye and hanging up. Even though it was 4am, you couldn’t get back to sleep because you were too excited so you began to pack your bag. It took all of your strength not to call Niall and squeal with excitement about how you were going to be seeing him soon. Zayn called you back only a few hours later to tell you that he had managed to get a flight for that same day if you could make it and you agreed happily and by 2pm you were sitting in the departure lounge waiting for your flight to board. You gave Zayn a quick call and he told you that the boys would be doing a late night talk show but that you should just go to the hotel and wait in Niall’s room to surprise him. He had told the hotel staff that you were coming and they had apparently arranged everything for your arrival. You thanked him again and again for everything that he’d done. You boarded your flight and although you spent the first few hours fidgeting you eventually fell asleep because the sheer exhaustion from the lack of sleep you’d had the night before finally took over. You woke up as you were descending into LA and after a quick trip through customs and baggage reclaim, you were on your way to the hotel. You sent Zayn a quick message to let him know that you’d arrived safely and the hotel staff took you up to Niall’s room as promised, so now all there was left to do was wait. You watched television for a few hours and even managed to catch the boy’s interview and it was clear to you how miserable Niall was and it made you want to see him more than you already did. You waited for another few hours and you eventually heard people walking around the halls but Niall didn’t appear. You heard a light knock on the door so you opened it to find Zayn and the other boys standing there. “Hey,” you said happily as you greeted them all. “Hey Y/N, look Niall ended up chatting to a few of the guys at the TV studio so he’s hanging back there for a bit and we couldn’t exactly tell him why we wanted him to come back so he’ll be back in a bit, but we wanted to chill with you for a while anyway,” Zayn smiled warmly and you nodded, feeling slightly disappointed but you were still happy to see the boys. You ended up chatting to them for over an hour and you all ordered some pizza. Your stomach churned with anticipation so you didn’t really eat much but you eventually heard Niall jamming his key into the door. You sat on the edge of your seat and he finally pushed the door open and stumbled inside. You felt your heart sink to the pit of your stomach as you saw a young, beautiful girl attached to his lips. They kissed each other hungrily and she raked her fingers through his hair as he pressed her up against the wall, completely oblivious to the fact that there were five other people watching him. You felt hot tears sliding down your cheeks and eventually, Liam snapped out of his shocked state and alerted Niall to his presence. “Hey, what are you doing in my room?” Niall practically yelled as he pulled his lips away from the girl and he immediately locked eyes with you. He instantly stepped back from the girl, “get out,” he muttered to her and her eyes widened. “What?” she asked; shocked. “I said get out,” he repeated and she scoffed as she strutted out the room. You and Niall both looked at each other for a few seconds and you eventually realized that you weren’t going to be able to keep your tears silent anymore. You began to sob as you ran out the room and he immediately chased after you. “Y/N, please wait,” he yelled after you and you could tell that he was crying too but you didn’t stop. “Leave me alone Niall, please just go away,” you sobbed as you jammed the elevator button furiously. He eventually caught up to you and grabbed hold of your arm. “Y/N, please don’t go, I’m sorry, I don’t know what I was thinking,” he stammered and you pulled away from him. “I’ll tell you what you weren’t thinking, you clearly weren’t thinking about me,” you sobbed and Zayn ran down the corridor as you finished speaking. “Y/N, come to my room for now, you have nowhere else to go,” he insisted, putting an arm around your shoulder as you hid your face behind your hands and sobbed harder than ever. “Y/N, please talk to me,” Niall begged as you walked away and Zayn turned round and glared at him furiously. “Shut up Niall, I seriously suggest you stop speaking, now,” he spat at him before pushing his door open and walking you inside.
Zayn (Your POV) – A huge grin spread across your face as you spotted Louis and Paul standing in the airport terminal. They had flown you all the way to Canada so you could surprise Zayn for his birthday and you felt like you were literally going to throw up because you were so excited. “Hi!” you exclaimed as you threw your arms around Louis’ neck and he giggled happily. “Hey Y/N, nice to see you love! How have you been?” he asked. “I’m great thanks! Even better now that I’m about to see Zayn, he really as no idea I’m here?” you asked and Louis nodded. “It wasn’t easy keeping it a secret. He’s been so moody all day because he misses you and he wants to see you because it’s his birthday. You should have seen me trying to make up an excuse for why I had to leave rehearsals to pick you up!” Louis laughed and you joined him. “So you’re still rehearsing now?” you asked and he nodded. “Yeah, we’re taking you straight to the stadium, Paul is going to drop your bags off at the hotel for you,” Louis smiled and you chewed your lower lip with nerves. You arrived at the stadium a short while later and you saw Niall, Liam and Harry sitting on the stage chatting as you walked. “Hey!” Niall shouted happily as he ran down to you and picked you up and threw you over his shoulder playfully. “Put. Me. Down,” you giggled and after a few minutes of torture, he eventually did. “We’ve missed ya!” Niall laughed. “Wish I could say the same about you,” you teased and he held his hands over his chest acting like your words had physically hurt him and you giggled and hit him playfully. “Now where’s my beautiful boy?” you asked and Niall gagged, you glared at him for a second before you both burst out laughing again. “I don’t know actually, that’s a good question. He went out the back to have a cigarette like twenty minutes ago and he’s not come back yet. He’s been in a shocking mood all day,” Niall shrugged and you nodded. “I’ll go and look for him,” you said practically skipping away from them. “Okay, come to the dressing room when you find him, we’ll see you in there,” Louis called after you and you gave him a thumbs up. You walked out the back exit of the stadium and had a quick look around but you couldn’t see him anywhere so you walked back inside. You had just closed the door behind you when you could here someone yelling angrily just a little bit down the corridor. You found the door where the noise was coming from and you realized it was the boys’ dressing room. Confused, you pushed the door open and Niall, Liam, Louis and Harry all turned round to look at you. They looked furious for a second and then their expressions changed into one’s of sheer panic. “What’s going on?” you asked and Harry walked towards you. “Y/N, go outside please, it’s best that you don’t see this,” he said sympathetically but you dodged past him and looked further into the room. Your eyes met with Zayn’s, which were filled with tears. You looked at him and realized he wasn’t wearing a shirt and then your eyes fell on the girl that was sitting next to him who was also topless. “Oh my God,” you muttered under your breath and Zayn immediately started sobbing and apologizing to you. “Oh my God,” you whispered again and everyone in the room stared at you as if you were a ticking time bomb that could explode at any second, and they were right. You picked up the first thing you found, which was a bottle of water and threw it as hard as you could at Zayn’s head. He just managed to duck out of the way only for you to throw another one even harder which hit him directly in the chest. The girl quickly put her clothes back on and ran out of the room, which was a good thing because you were about to turn on her. Zayn stood up and walked towards you, begging for your forgiveness but you were too blinded by rage to listen. You had just pulled your arm back so you could punch him but a pair of strong arms wrapped themselves around your waist and carried you away before you could. “Put me down right now,” you screamed but you were carried out the room anyway. You were eventually put down when you were a safe distance from Zayn and you turned round to see that it was Liam that had carried you away. Him and Niall both looked at you, eyes filled with sympathy. “Y/N, just calm down okay, he’s not worth you getting so worked up, he’s not worth it,” Liam said and your anger subsided only to be replaced with hot tears which slid down your face quickly and in large quantities. You ran your fingers through your hair as you tried to steady your breathing, “What am I going to do?” you sobbed, “I have no where to go, I just want to be home,” you sobbed. “I know Y/N, don’t worry and please don’t cry,” Niall said as he put his arm around your shoulder. “We’ll get you a separate room in the hotel for the night and we’ll get you on the first flight home tomorrow if that’s what you want, okay? Come on, I’ll take you back now,” he said softly and you agreed and buried your face in his chest and sobbed harder than ever for a few minutes before you heard Zayn’s footsteps running up the hallway. “Y/N, please talk to me,” he begged but you didn’t even make eye contact with him. You pulled yourself away from Niall and looked up at him, “can we go now?” you asked quietly and he nodded before leading you out the building.
