Okay, look, I’m not good at this whole–” he waves his hands around, “–wooing thing. I’m not someone who goes on dates and, like, does all that. I’ve never had the time to do that, even.” “You’ve never been in a relationship?” Zayn asks, a bit surprised. Niall blushes. “Never really cared about stuff like that, until I met you.” [Or the one where Zayn’s a spy, Niall’s his target, and the whole world’s their playground] Words: ~51k
A/N: Written for Round 5 of @1dbigbang. Also featuring absolutely amazing art by @karelydraws (full-length version of art in the fic)! I’ve been working on the idea/snippets for this fic for probably four/five years now and I’m so happy to see it finally completed :) It’s by far the longest fic I’ve ever written and I really hope you all enjoy it!
