When Jim is six years old, he falls in love with a rope in his hand, the blue sea beneath and all around him and the horizon. He falls in love with sailing, utterly and as swiftly as only six year old boys can.
Much later, Jim falls for stupid jokes, warm hands and knowing someone inside out, better than you know yourself. He falls in love with his best friend. Or maybe he's always been in love with him, in one way or another. Maybe he fell for him when he was six years old, utterly and swiftly.
Niall grins. “Let’s go out sometime.”
Louis perks up a bit, holding out his hand and demanding Niall’s mobile. “On one condition,” he says as he types in his contact information. “We’re going to redo your bad dates and make them good ones.”
Niall laughs, thinking he’s kidding at first. “Why can’t we just go to dinner like regular lads?”
Louis rolls his eyes and opens the door. “Being regular is boring, Neil. Good night.”
Or, the one where Louis and Niall reenact their previous bad dating history and maybe fall in 'like' along the way. (Spoiler alert: not so much 'maybe')
