Rating: Explicit Ships: Zayn Malik/Niall Horan, Harry Styles/Louis Tomlinson Summary: “Correct me if I’m wrong,” Zayn starts, leaning forward and resting his chin on his hands. “But you look a little…nervous?” Niall scoffs but Zayn can see the worry underneath the surface. “Consider yourself corrected.” Zayn just raises an eyebrow at that, and eventually Niall groans, rubbing at his face. “Fuck. 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
