    Summary

    "Louis' either dumb enough or smart enough, but definitely crazy enough to think that even his bad ideas are good ones," Zayn snickers.

    "I think this is one of his best," Niall admits, grin soft.


    Zayn walks in on Louis dirty-talking Niall, again and again.

    (But it's all part of Louis' master plan.)

    Summary

    “Would change your shirt, mate, he’s a thousand-year-old swan. You’ve got to pull out all the stops.”

    Zayn’s hanging in the doorway to Niall’s room, an easy smile on his face - like it doesn’t bother him at all, that Niall’s on a quest to make someone else fall in love with him. Maybe it doesn’t, maybe it shouldn’t. Niall grumbles but changes his shirt; the new one, dappled orange koi swimming over stylized waves. He was going to save it for the second date, but Zayn’s not wrong - you never do get a second chance to make a first impression.

    Summary

    “Remember what I said, last January?” Niall asks. Louis swallows and nods, pressing Niall’s hand; it’s one of those things he’ll never forget. “I meant it then. I’ll always mean it.”

    And then Louis has to kiss him, backseat and Paul be damned. He cups Niall’s face in his hands and gives it everything he has: it’s slow and sleepy and slick, their tongues sliding together like the best song. Here, with Niall pressed against him, kissing the doubt and impossibility out of him; he’s happy for now with just this. If he only ever got just this, it would be enough.

    Summary

    “What is it with this trip and self-revelations?”
    Zayn laughs. “We should write a book about how to find yourself while travelling. Although that’s probably a terribly overused trope.”
    “Maybe they can put quotes from us on these stickers on one of those books, then,” Niall suggests, adding in air quotes: “Proven to actually work by Zayn Malik and Niall Horan.”
    “Immediate bestseller,” Zayn grins, but then he turns serious again. “But really, I know I’ve said it before, but I’m really happy we’re doing this. Like, it’s been so much fun and we’ve seen so many beautiful places and I feel, like, better and happier and freer than I have in ages. All thanks to you.”

    an AU in which zayn never left the band but they went on hiatus anyway. there’s a lot niall has to work through regarding his past and his future - and some of it involves zayn. so what could be better than going on a trip together?
