Liam, Zayn, Louis and Niall at Red Bull Arena (12/5/13)
ZAYN AND PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
who am i kidding he just sat on the sidelines and did that crinkly smile at niall the whole time
AU MEME:Niall Horan and Harry Styles are both University students, who were high school best friends with R&B artist, Zayn Malik. Even through fame, Zayn has stayed in touch, and often visited them in London, and even flown them for concerts. Zayn offers Niall a spot on his world tour as a guitarist, and Niall is hesitant because Zayn has been sneaking around with girlband member, Perrie Edwards. Niall has been deeply in love with Zayn ever since he was sixteen. Niall calls Harry in the middle of the night, earning a much needed insult, and something that made him open his eyes a little more.
Okay but picture for a sec that zayn was at the wedding alright?
Niall’s been stressed the fuck out all morning, because a bunch of fans are lined up outside the church, and this day is supposed to be about Greg and Denise and he feels like he’s completely ruining everything (which he’s not). But then everything’s finally in place and Niall takes his position beside Greg as best man, and as Denise walks down the aisle and Niall sees the look on his brother’s face all his worries kind of wash away? Because nothing exists in the world for those two but each other in that moment, and Niall is a bit envious of that kind of love.
And he stands there throughout the vows, he gets this tugging at his heartstrings, and he realizes he wants this. He wants this commitment, he wants the vows, he wants forever. And almost unbidden his head lifts and his eyes begin to scan the church, flickering across friends and family until he finds the one set of eyes that are already staring right back at him.
Zayn is seated towards the back in the midst of some of his aunts and uncles who could care less that they’re seated next to 1/5 of an internationally renowned boy band. He’s got a look on his face that tells Niall he knows exactly what the blond boy had been thinking (because doesn’t he always?). As Niall watches, Zayn’s lips curve into a soft smile and he tilts his head toward Greg and Denise, and the priest reciting the words that will entwine their lives forever.
You and me? he mouths at Niall, quirking up an eyebrow at the other boy. And Niall can’t help it; he lifts his own brow back at his boyfriend and gives him a firm nod before turning his eyes back toward to floor in attempts to hide the smile that is most definitely splitting his face. Because today isn’t his day after all.
And it wasn’t quite a proposal, no. But to Niall it felt like a promise.
