PUT THE BOTTLE DOWN.
I Felt my self hit the floor, As the glass bottle smashed against my temple, tears rolled down my swollen face.
“Stop!” I Managaged To Scream Out Of My Weak Body.
I Was Bruised, Bruised Everywhere. I Couldn’t find The Strength to defend myself.
“Why Are You Doing this!, Why!” I Managed To Scream Right Before I Felt him Strike me again, this time in my rib cage.
“You’re Usless!” He Screamed indistinctly.
I Could barely see anymore, my eyes filled with bluryness and tears. He Was drunk, I couldn’t believe he was drunk,AGAIN!
I needed to get away. I Looked around trying to think of what I could possibly do, before he could hurt me anymore than he already
had. I spotted the bottle that had right before hit my temple. I Grabbed it and swung it using all the strength i could get out of my sore
body. I Got up and booked it to the door.
I Ran, Ran as fast as you could possibly imagion. The freezing rain felt incredible on all of the bruises that covered my body. It was so dark
out I couldn’t tell where I was heading, but I couldn’t find it in me to stop. I Could barely see as dizziness overcame my body. I Felt myself
stumbling down the street. Getting More And More drained. Soon after I realized I Was No Longer Running I Felt My Body Smash Into something.
My body flopped to the ground hitting the cold wet sidewalk. My mind went blank, almost with relief, that I was no longer awake, maybe it was a
nightmare, just coming to its end. Darkness filled my body, warmth came over me. I Felt movement almost as if I was being carried. There was a
distant buzzing sound coming from around me almost as if i was hearing banter. I Couldn’t open my eyes for the life of me, so I Managed to relax
myself, hoping my night mare would be soon coming to its quits.
A FAMILIAR FACE.
Sunlight beemed into my room. I felt the sun hit me through my closed eyes. When I opened my eyes I Opened Them
to what wasn’t my room. Confusion filled my head, thoughts of what could have happened. I Went to sit up, but my body wouldn’t
let me, suddenly I Remembered Everything. I Needed to get up and figure out where I was. As I Sat Up a loud groan came from my
lungs. Just then I heard a slight snore, from behind my left shoulder. I Turned To See a blonde haired boy, My Age, Maybe A Little
Older sitting in A Red Chair. He Was Was filled with uncomfort. I Was unsure what I Should do.
“Excuse Me?” I Whispered, as I got no reply.
“Excuse Me?” I Said This Time Quite Louder. Still I Was Left With No Answer.
“Excuse Me?” This Time I Yelled. The Blonde Boy Jumped Up, It seemed as though i startled him.
“Sorry, I Was Just Wondering, Who You Are And Why I Am In What Seems To Be Your House?” Soon After I Said This I
Wish I Could Have Taken It Back, It Seemed To Come Out A Little Rude.
” Last Night I Was Getting Home From The Resturant and You Ran Right Into Me Love, I AM Sorry If I Have Made You
Uncomfortable But after you hit into my chest you were passed out, I was worried. I mean i figured something happened,
By the looks of your face?” The End Of His Sentance almost seemed like it it was a question. To my surprise he had a
thick irish accent, it was cute, very cute, almost comforting.
“Oh, Well Thank You.” I Said As I Looked Down To The Ground, Embarrassed At What My Face Probably Looked Like.
“Do You By Any chance want to tell me what happened?” He Questioned Again, Almost Seeming Confused.
“Not Really..” I Said Choked Up, Trying To Hold back Tears From Remembering The Night Before.
“Well Alright.” He Said Dissapointed, ” Are You Hungry?” Before I Could Answer He said ” Well I Sure Am, What Do you Want
“Well What Do You Have?” I Spit out quick after.
“A Girl Who Likes To Know Her Options, I like that.” He Said To Me A flirtashious Wink Right After.
I Laughed. As A Smile Spread Across My Swollen Face. The First Smile I Have Had In Weeks, Maybe Even Months.
The Blonde Boy Helped Me Up And Lead Me Into His Kitchen. He started to bicker about how messy it was and he seemed
“Sorry Doll, Louis really Needs To Learn How To Clean after himself.”
Who’s Louis. This question popped into my head. I thought of all the possibilities. Gay? Children? Friend? I Couldn’t help but wonder.
The Boy saw the confusion in my face, ” Louis is My Roomate.” He paused. “He’s a real handful!”
“oh.” I said, as I watched him pour the cinnamon toast crunch into two seperate bowls.
He Smiled A Familiar smile, I Couldn’t Help but think I Knew Him He Seemed So Familiar Even His Voice. Who Is This Boy I
Wondered, More Confused Than I Had Ever Been In My Life.
I grabbed my bowl of cereal and started to eat. I looked up as I heard someone coming down the stairs. Another boy that seemed to be
my age, curly brown hair, he seemed cheeky. Almost as if he never stopped smiling. He stood there in his boxers. This boy had an amazing
body. I quickly looked in the other direction as I felt myself staring.
” Look Who’s finally awake!” He Shouted Cheerfully.
I Laughed at his cheekiness.
“You Must Be Louis.” I Smiled.
“No actually, I’m Harry.” He held out his hand for me to shake it.
“Oh?” I Questioned, While turning my head to face the blonde boy. Not shaking Harry’s hand.
“He’s another one of my roomates.” The boy spoke out.
“Oh So You Have Two?” I paused and turned to Harry And shook his hand.
“Actually 4..” He Said facing the ground almost as if he was embarrassed.
I Gave him a look of shock, then let out a slight laugh. He Looked At me confused.
“Niall wouldn’t leave your side last night!” Harry spit out quickly changing the subject.
“Shut up Harry!” He spoke out, as his cheeks turned a rosie colour of red.
Niall, Niall was his name. I felt as though I knew him. I felt as I knew both of them.
Suddenly I knew, he was one of the boys from that silly boyband my friend maiya always went on about. Both of their faces were plastered
all over her bedroom walls. I Knew, I knew him from some where. I Started to put the pieces together. I remembered Maiya saying once before
there were five of them. And it just so happened that there were five of them living in that house. They must all be from that band. I Looked up
to them staring at me. I think they realized that I was thinking really hard about something.
“You wouldn’t leave my side?” I Questioned, realizing what harry had just shouted out.
“No he wouldn’t leave you! We tryed to get him to come up to bed like 10 times, he wouldn’t bugde.” Harry teasingly, while looking towards Nialls,
now bright red face.
“I Was worried” He Said looking at the floor. “I Mean you were knocked out cold.”
“Well That was very sweet of you, but I best be going, sorry to make you sleep in that lousy chair all night.” I appologized as I Stood up pushing in my chair.
“Wait!” I stopped. “If you don’t mind telling me, where are you living, right now?”
I Didn’t know what to say. I couldn’t go home. I didn’t really want to leave his house, he was so nice, but I felt weird inviting myself to stay at his house.
“3215 Dixon road.” I said my friend Maiya’s address, I figured I’d be staying there for the next little while. Until my dad found me, and drug me back to that hell hold
he calls a home. “Here give me your phone.” I said as I held my hand out. He put his iPhone into my hand and I quickly added my number. “Text me any time!”
“Do you maybe want a ride?” He asked, I was about to say no, but as I thought about it, it didn’t seem like a bad idea. I was really sore, and besides, I had no idea
where I was.
“That would be great if you don’t mind!” I Gave him a smile, as he lead me out the door and into one of the 3 cars in the driveway. While we were driving it hit me
I Had just spent the night at the biggest boy bands house in the world right now. I was never really into them, I didn’t even know the bands name. But it was still shocking
wait until I told maiya. She would flip.
Just then we pulled into her drive way and I Said good bye and thank you. He nodded and pulled away.
I walked into her house and up into her room. I didn’t need to knock, her house was my house.her parents basically raised me with my dad always being drunk, I never wanted to be home.
“Emma! What happend to your face!” She seemed so worried. I looked at her like she was stupid. She knew exactly what happend. Her asking was pointless.
“He came home drunk again?” She asked grabbing rubbing alchohol from her top shelf. And a face clothe from her drawer. I nodded.
“I Thought it was the last time?” She said concerned.
“I Thought so too, atleast that’s what he said.” I Said looking down. Maiya was someone you could tell everything to, know judge ment would be passed.
“Awe Emma..” She said as she cleaned the cut the bottle had left on my temple.
“I have to tell you something!” I Sat up sounding really excited.
“What?” she questioned.
“You’re not going to belive me.” I Said.
“What is it!” She yelled, being very impatient.
“Last night I Spent the night at Niall’s house..” I Waited for her response as she looked at me suspiciously.
I stood up and pointed to him on one of her posters.
“Niall….. This Niall.” I Pointed again as I didn’t know his last name.
“You’re right…” She mumbled, sarcastically.
“What?” I was confused, very confused. Honestly, I wasn’t very swift. I never understood what was going on. It was something alot of people
hated about me. But I couldn’t help but be confused at situations that didn’t make sence.
“I don’t belive you..” She spit out looking at me as if I wasn’t from this planet.
“No Seriously!” I argued. I began to tell her what happend with every detail I could possible think of. She still gave me that look.
“He has my number!” I Screamed, assuring her I was telling the truth. “And he knows where you live..” I addmitted, not knowing how she’d
feel about Niall having her address.
“I Won’t belive it until you prove it..” She claimed.
This dissapointed me. Why wouldn’t she belive me? Why would I lie about something like that? I Layed down on her bed and told her I was
going to take a nap. My eyes closed fast, I fell right into a deep sleep. I was still so exhausted from everything that had happened.
THINKING OF YOU.
I Woke to the sound of my phone buzzing. I stood up walking to my phone, that was placed on her dresser.
“Hello?” I feared in a raspy voice, hoping it wasn’t my father.
“Hi!” some one shouted into the phone. “It’s Harry!” He shouted once more.
“Oh hi Harry!” I Spoke with relief. “Could I help you with something?”
“Well, Niall, the rest of the boys and I were going to go out for some dinner, if you’d like to join?” He requested.
Dinner? I walked towards the window, It was jus tstaring to get dark. I figured it was probably arund 530.
I was sleeping for a long time.
“I’d love to, but do you think my friend Maiya could come?” I Begged.
“Of course Babe, anytime!” He emphasized. “We’ll pick you guys up in about an hour! Be ready!”
“Ok do you need the address?” I Asked
“No, Niall Knows It! See Yeah Later!” He hung up the phone. I then felt stupid, of course Niall knew the address, he
dropped me off earlier this morning.
I ran down stairs, while Maiya was sitting there watching her television.
“Get up! were going for dinner!” I Squabled at her while throwing a pillow in her direction.
“Where?” She Questioned, like it actually mattered.
“Harry Called me, He’s taking us out with the rest of the boys.”
“You’re lying..” She sounded excited.
“No get ready! They’re coming in less than an hour.” I notified. She then jumped up and ran into her bathroom.
I Decided to go to her room and barrow some make up to try to cover up my dissaster of a face. Looking
into the mirror I couldn’t believe the two boys saw me like this. Bruised and swollen, I started to put on cover up.
Covering the horrible bruises my father had let me with. Maiya came into the room and through something at me.
“Wear that.” She said while going through her dresser drawers.
“Thankyou!” I Said remembering I had no other clothes. I Started to put it on.
Its was black skinny jeans with a grey lacy top. I went down stairs by the door way and borrowed a pair of her grey boots,
with cute buckles on the sides. Considering I didn’t even have any, I ran out of my house to fast to grab shoes. I opened her
closest and grabbed a cute jacket. She came down after me and put on a pair of boots and another jacket.
“They should be here anyminute.” I assured, she looked at me nervous. “Relax! They’re just normal boys..”
“But they’re ONE DIRECTION.” She emphasized.
A Black car pulled up to the drive way. I started to walk towards it as maiya followed behind me. I Got into the front seat.
and maiya got into the back.
“Hi hun!” Niall said to me.
“Hi thank you for inviting us for dinner!” I replied.
Maiya was staying silent.
“I Missed yeah!” harry shouted towards me, being cheeky as always.
I started to laugh. I Looked back and saw maiya staring at Harry star struck.
“Where are the other boys?” I questioned Niall.
“Well we didn’t have room for the other boys and you two in one car so we took two seperate ones.” He stated.
“I’m excited to meet them!” I lied. Not that I didn’t want to meet them, but It felt as though it might be awkward,
I barely know Niall and Harry, nevermind three other boys. I felt like I was going to dinner with five strangers.
“They’re really nice, but loud, don’t be overwhelmed by them, it’s just they way they are.” Niall warned, almost seeming apologetic.
“Don’t worry, I’m sure we’ll get along fine!” I Assured him, while also assuring myself.
“Ok, I believe you..” Maiya piped in from the back of the car. I laughed, she started to aswell. The boys seemed
really confused, Niall gave me a questionable look, but I ignored it. we soon pulled into the parking lot. We all got out of the car and walked into the restaurant.
We sat down at what seemed to be a private table. Way at the far back of the restaurant. There were eight seats. four on one side, four on the other,
we all sat down looking at our menus.
“Well, who are these two lovely ladies?” I Heard As I looked up at another familiar face. This one had Suspenders and bright pants. I wanted to laugh
but I actually found it cute, His hair was done perfectly, as it all spiked up. I Gave him a smile while I started to observe the other two boys behind him.
One had darker skin, quite good looking, he had a beanie on and sat down beside the one with suspenders. The other was wearing plad, and had shaggy
hair. And a smile that lightened the mood.
“This is Maiya and.. ” He Paused I then realized I never even told them my name.
“Emma” I interupted. while leaning forward to shake the boy with suspenders hand.
“Louis.” He replied.
“Oh you’re the one that makes all the mess!” I Giggled.
He smiled at me, embarrassed.
“I am Liam!” Said the one with shaggy hair.
“Zayn.” Said the dark skinned boy, seeming very shy.
“So what happened to you last night?” Asked Louis. You seemed pretty beaten up hun, We were all very worried.” he assured me.
“Oh It was nothing, I Had just had a bad day as all.” I tried to seem convincing. You could tell none of them believed me.
The night consisted of banter and Laughs, to soon the night ended and we had to say our goodbyes.
I told them i’d see them soon and to keep in touch, thinking they must be busy all the time. I was relived with how well the night went on.
We all got on really well from the go. As I stepped back into maiya’s house I wondered what they thought of me, if maybe I would see more of them
than I expected. I Went right up stairs and into bed wondering what tomorrow would bring.
The next day went slow, not a moment went by when I didn’t think of him. The smile on his face when he walked into the room, The way he talked to you was just so riveting! The feeling I get when I’m around him is amazing. I feel safe, happy, that’s not something I felt often. I haven`t put my phone down once today. I sit and wait for my phone to go off, but it doesn`t. It was already late. I went to bed with disappointment.
I Heard a buzz. Yes! I Shouted as I jumped out of bed making my way across maiya`s room towards her dresser, where my phone was left charging. I slid it open quickly seeing one new message from Niall.
Niall: Good morning! I was thinking breakfast? xx
Emma: Sure! Just Let Me Wake Maiya. Will You And Harry be there or all the boys? (:
Niall: Well No.. I was thinking maybe just us?
My Head Felt Like It Had spun, he wanted to go to breakfast with me, just me! Excitement filled my body.
Emma: Of course sounds fun! When will you be here?
Niall: Ok would you be able to be ready in about 20 minutes?
Emma: Yes i’ll be as quick as possible!
Niall: Alright sounds like a date!
I rushed around Maiya’s room, I Chose an outfit and through it on, and quickly put on some makeup over my still very noticeable bruises and I was ready. Then I received another text.
Niall: I’m here love. xx
I left Maiya a quick note and headed out of the house, walking towards the car I got more and more nervous. Knowing this was a date made my stomach turn in knots.
“Hello.” He Said smiling to me as I sat next to him, He quickly pulled away from Maiyas house, and off we were to the restaurant.
We sat at the back just as I expected.
we talked, talked for hours, a lot came up.
he told me all about his parents divorce and what had
changed for his life becoming as famous as he was.
soon after words came out of his mouth, I really wish hadn’t.
“What’s your life like?” He Asked.
I Froze. What could I say?
“My life’s ok.” I Said.
He gave me a look. A look of a thousand worries. He could tell I was lying, I think we both heard the aching in my voice.
“Are you sure? I’m here to talk if you need someone.” He waited for an answer, but I honestly had no idea how to respond.
“Oh no, I’m fine.” I responded
“Oh.” He paused. “Well what happened to you, the other night?”
“Nothing.” I Looked down. I couldn’t look at him, he’d see the pain in my eyes, I just wanted to cry thinking about it, nevermind telling him.
“Emma, don’t lie to me. Please I really wanna know, I won’t judge you, I want to help.” He pleaded.
“Actually I Have to go.” I Lied, “I’ll tell you another time.” I lied again. I don’t think I could see him again. He wanted answers, and well, I didn’t have any.
“I’m sorry.” he said “You don’t have to tell me if you dont want to.” I heard the disappointment in his voice. “I’ll drop you off at Maiya’s.” We walked out.
“Actually Niall Do you think you could drop me off at my house.” My dad should be gone off to work by now and I need to get more things.
“Sure, Wheres that” He said. You could tell he was still curious of why I wouldn’t go back before. I told him the address and we continued driving down the street.
I said goodbye and continued walking down my driveway. I opened the door, Fear is what I felt, I took a quick look around my house making sure my dad wasn’t home. I Went to my room being quick as possible, grabbing clothes and throwing them into a suitcase. Grabbing everything I needed. I Pulled the suitcase up the stairs back into my living room.
There he was. Standing there. Looking at me, Anger in his eyes.
“Dad.” I Spoke with a shaky voice. “Wh-why aren’t you at work?”
“Don’t Tell Me what to do!” He yelled clenching his fists.
“I-I’m Not, I just wondered” I Was scared, I could smell the alcohol off him from across the room
Before I Knew it He was lunging towards me yelling nonsense about how I’ve been missing and how he doesn’t deserve Me.
I jumped back, dodging his hit. With another lung, he came at me, striking my right below my eye. And he fell to the ground I Grabbed my suit case and ran out of my house. I Ran to maiyas house a few blocks away, I Eyes red from crying so much. Locked. The door was locked. And No one was answering the door. I Picked up my suit case and ran to Nialls. It was all I could think of, Two blocks before his house It started to pour. Me and my suitcase became soaked. I Knocked on his door. Crying, I Could barely find the words no speak I ran far and all my breath was gone.
“Emma! What Happened to you, Whats Wrong!”
I Had no words. He Led Me In His House And Got Me A Blanket And Past Me A Cup of tea. I Was relieved to be with Niall.
I Felt safe again. I Never wanted to leave his side. He went up the stairs and come down with clothes in his hands.
“Wear these If you want. Ill put all of your clothes in the dryer.”
“Thank you.” The first words I have managed to get out since walking through his doors.
“The bedroom Is upstairs to the left. I’ll be here when you’re done. “
I Walked Towards the bathroom wondering how I was going to explain myself. There was no way in hell I was getting this past him without an explanation of some sort. Great I Said to myself while changing My clothes. Just great.
I Stayed In The bathroom for a while, not know what would happen when I left. I couldn’t just tell him. I didn’t want to tell him. No one has ever known, except Maiya, I’m sure people assumed, but I didn’t know how I was going to tell him.
I opened the bathroom door, taking a deep breath to calm me nerves and headed doorstairs.
I Sat on his couch and wiped away the rest of my tears. He Sat across from me on the red chair. Looking at me. He seemed to be thinking of something. Looking at me like he wanted to say something but couldn’t. Finally he sat up and pulled the chair closer to me until he was right infront of me.
“Emma.” He Paused then put his hand on my knee. There Was Almost fright In His voice. “I’m Really Scared For You And I wanna help you” He Paused once Again. ” I Know I’ve Only Known You for a couple of days, but I care a lot about you, I feel Like I could tell you anything, And I think you need to tell someone instead of keeping it to yourself.” Finally finishing off his sentence, I realized he was right.
“I’m sorry.” That’s all I could think of.
“Emma, You have passed out on the side walk, while it looks like you’ve been beaten the crap out of. And you came to my house with a swollen eye again well crying. I’m not letting you blow this off, you need to tell someone. and I’m asking that you please tell me.” He Looked At Me. “Please?”
I took a deep breath and looked down at my lap.
“When I was about 12 My Mom died From Cancer. She Had been sick for most of my life, But her And My dad had been with each other since they were in high school. He Took her death really hard.” I Stopped. He just looked at me, not knowing what to say so I continued. ” We used to have a great life, we were so close and well, after my mom died he started drinking, When I was 14 he hit me. He hadn’t really hurt me until I was about 16, Last year I was sent to the hospital In an ambulance by my neighbor, It used to only be like twice a month. But lately It’s been every day. And He Was There When You dropped me off at home.” I Started to cry. I Put my hands up to my eyes and wiped my tears trying to continue. I Looked Up at him, his face slackened and his brow furrowed, his eyes were darting about in concern as if he were searching for a place to hide.
“Emma, I Am so sorry,” Tears Filled His No Longer Brightened, ocean blue eyes. “This Is all my fault!” He Stated as he pulled his hand off of my knee and ran his hands through his soft blonde hair. “I Shouldn’t Have let you go back to your house!” It sounded almost as if he was crying.
“Niall, Stop!” I Pleaded. “How were you supposed to know! I didn’t tell you!” I put my finger under his chin and lifted his face. His eyes were glossy, red, I Tried to calm him down as he breathed heavy. “Niall, You Shouldn’t Be This Upset Why Are You Crying?”
“I Love You Emma!” He Said It. I Love You. The three simplest words that meant so much. “How Am I not supposed to be upset!” He Started to Yell. “Just Knowing Someone Would do something like that to a girl like you, just.. just makes me wanna punch a wall!”
“Niall! Please Calm Down!” I Yelled To Him. Standing Up.
He looked up at me with pain in his eyes.
He Stood Up In front of me and I Looked into his eyes, as he stood taller then me. My heart was pounding and my stomach refused to sit still. His Hand Gently grabbed my face, while pulling me in closer. If anything could make me feel safe, it was him. He leaned in as I closed my eyes. I wasn’t prepared for this. I suddenly felt faint. Like the room was spinning around us. When He pulled away all I wanted to do was jump into his arms and tell him to never let go of me. We stood there looking deep into eachothers eyes, I swear at that moment we were the only two people in the world. We didn’t move we stayed in eachothers arms, looking at eachothers eyes. I never wanted to leave him, Never.
WHAT ARE WE?
I felt safe, his arm around my waist, keeping me up close and tight with his body. He was so warm I didn’t want to get out of the bed. But my stomach growled for food. I slipped out of bed, careful not to wake him. Tip toeing down the hall way and down the stairs finally making it to the kitchen. I turned on the light.
I jumped out of my skin, seeing harry was there sipping tea.
“Jesus Harry! You scared me. What are you doing up?” I questioned.
“I was having trouble sleeping with Lou snoring in the room beside me” he confessed. “What on happened to your eye.” He Asked.
I almost forgot it was there. Embarrassed I told him I felt And Hit The corner of the table on the way down.
“Ouch! That must have hurt!” He spoke as he cringed his face, as if he was imaging the pain. “Want some frosties?” He Asked pointing to the box of cereal in his hand.
“That would be lovely.” I said to him as I watched him pour the cereal for us both.
“So..” He elongated while moving his eyebrows up and down in slants. “What’s With you and Niall, You guys seem pretty flirty.” He winked.
“Oh Idk. ” I mumbled. I could feel my face turning red with embarrassment.
“Well things must be going pretty good, you did spend the night, after all. You dirty kids! ” He joked.
I Laughed “Yeah I did. I’m not exactly sure how he feels.” I lied I knew exactly how he felt, he loved me, or atleast that’s what he said.
“I Think he really likes you,” He said smiling at me. “He never quits talking about you when your not around.”
I didn’t know what to say, so I just filled my mouth with Frosties waiting for Harry to go on.
“How do you feel about him?”
“I’m not really sure.. ” Lies, all lies. But I didn’t want to say anything to him, he’d tell Niall.
“Oh.” He seemed disappointed.
I finished my cereal and headed back up stairs, telling harry I’d talk to him later.
“Hey.” Niall looked up at me using a sleepy raspy voice.
It made me melt with his Irish accent in the mix.
“Good Morning.” I Smiled while climbing back into bed with him.
“Where’d You Go?” He asked me.
“I Was hungry..” I admitted.
“Oh, you could have woke me, I would have taken you out.”
“No need, I am fine with cereal. And you looked so comfortable sleeping I didn’t wanna wake you.” I Said pulling myself closer to him, Lying my head on his chest.
He leaned in and kissed me, got right up and headed to the bathroom leaving the door open I heard him brush his teeth and get into the shower. I decided I should call Maiya. She was probably worried. I grabbed Nialls house phone and called.
“Hey! Maiya It’s Emma”
“Oh my God! good I was worried sick about you! You kept forwarding my calls, Where have you been!” She Nagged.
“My Phone Is Broken it got wet. Ill explain another time, and I spent the night at Nialls.” I told her.
“Ok well i have to go. Call me later.” She hung up the phone.
Niall then walked out of the bathroom with a towel around his waist. I couldn’t help but stare. I was shocked at how nice his body was. He Looked at me and smirked. I think he notice my uncontrollable staring. He then let out a slight laugh and grabbed some clean clothes from his dresser. He walked into his bathroom and back out within 5 minutes. And crawled over and sprawled across me. We both laughed as he looked deep into my eyes. He was so cute. The kind of guy you couldn’t help but love. I thought about how much I actually loved him. A lot more than I should for only knowing him a few days.
“Whatcha Thinkin’? ” He asked questionably Looking into my eyes.
He knew me so well. Especially For how little time we spent together.
“You.” I Said quickly telling the truth.
“Me?” He seemed shocked. “What about me?” He waited for my answer.
“Just How Cute You Are.. And how lucky I am to have a friend like you.” I Spoke Not thinking about using the word friend.
“Friend.” He Paused “Right!” He then said quickly getting off of me. Awkwardness filled the room. I didn’t know what else to call him. I mean we weren’t together. Nor were we actually dating. I have never had a real relationship and I didn’t really know how all this worked.
I stood up and grabbed his hands looking up at his dimmed face.
“Yes, Friends, Unless you maybe want to be more?” I Smiled at him.
He then smiled back, grabbed my face and leaned in to kiss me right before whispering.
“Emma, I Would love to be more.”
After the kiss I couldn’t control my emotions. I Wanted to scream of joy, but I couldn’t. I Kissed him once more quick, but passionately.
“So Emma, will you be my girlfriend?” He asked laughing because he already knew that answer.
“I Would love to!” I laughed back “It took you long enough to ask!” I joked.
He then picked me up and threw me on the bed. He started to tickle me and I Burst out laughing.
“Niall! Niall!” I Screeched “Stop! Niall!” As I giggled.
Soon then a knock at the door appeared.
“Be Appropriate! Please!, Atleast when I’m home!” Harry begged from the other side of the door. We both burst out laughing.
“Maybe we should be quieter” I Laughed he kissed me once more and we got out of the bed and went downstairs.
This is the happiest I have ever been.
I Went down to his basement and grabbed my clothes from his dryer. I quickly changed and headed back upstairs. There he was in the kitchen, Shoving food into his face, The way he made anything look attractive surprised me.
“Want to go to the mall?” He Murmured with his mouth full of food.
“Yeah sure!” I Went and grabbed a sweater from Nialls closest.
He put his food away and we headed out the door.
Arriving at the mall it was quiet. No one was really there. He lead me right to the Apple Store. He picked up an iPhone 4s box and handed it to me.
“You’re getting yourself another iPhone?”
“No hun, It’s for you. You need new phone, don’t yea?” He questioned turning around towards me,
“I Can’t take this!” I Handed the box back to him.
“You Have to have a phone Emma! How else will I keep in touch with you when I leave?”
“Leave?” I was confused. “Where are you going.”
“Florida. Then Italy, Spain, Australia.” He started naming off countries. I then remembered he was famous.
“When do you leave?” I Could hear the disappointment in my voice.
“In A Weak, We have an upcoming tour for our newest album.”
He Handed the box back to me, “Emma, please let me buy you this, I’m not really sure how long it will be until I see you after I leave, I want to be able to call and text you.” He then pointed to then front camera on it. “Look we can even facetime!” He sounded excited. I agreed only because I couldn’t go with out talking to him.
We started walking towards Topman.
“Would you mind if we look in here?” He asked me politely.
“Of course!” I wasn’t going to say no to him.
He started grabbing clothes off of tables that were his size. And headed for the cash counter.
“Aren’t you going to try them on?”
“No, I know my sizes, I shop here all the time, I hate trying things on, I’m too lazy.” He smirked.
Walking out of the store we saw a few fans maybe about ten, Asking Niall for pictures and autographs.
“Do you mind?” He turned to me.
“No, no! Go right ahead.” Who was I to tell him he couldn’t talk to his fans.
I Watched As he took a few pictures and signed everything. We walked to other stores and the group of girls kept following us. Growing bigger and bigger. Before we knew it we were stuck in a store with no way out. The crowd was to big.
“I Better call Paul.” He Started, dialling a number on his iPhone.
“One Second.” He Said to me trying to talk over the screaming girls out side of the store. ” Paul! We’re stuck at the mall is there anyway you can get down here?” His face dropped. “Oh ok, I understand. Bye”
“What?” I Asked him.
“Paul is our security guard. He’s not able to get down here, and anyway he’d need the rest of the guards to help as well.”
“Oh” I Said thinking of ways we could get out.
“Take my hand!” He said grabbing my hand uncomfortably tight. “We need to get through. “
We opened the store doors and started pushing through. Every one was grabbing and touching you. He kept getting his hair pulled. Walking by some of the girls I heard things like “Who’s that?”
“Why are they shopping together?”
“Is that his girlfriend?”
“Why Is her face all bruised?”
I Immediately became annoyed with these questions. I’m sure he was too. We got closer and closer to the mall exit. The crowd of girls moved with us, getting tighter and tighter. I was barely able to breath. I heard a huge groan coming from Niall.
“What Happened?” I Screamed worried.
“A Fan just hit my balls!” He groaned grabbing his lower area with the hand the wasn’t entwined with mine. I laughed a little and assured him he would be fine, and to keep moving forward. Finally we made it to the parking lot and screaming girls covered all around the car. We hoped in and Slowly started driving, while he beeped and beeped getting fans to move”
“Sorry about that, It gets a little crazy sometimes.” He said still trying to get all of the fans to move.
“How’d they know you’d be there?” I questioned
“Well Once one fans spots me or the other boys, they post it all over twitter, and soon enough everyone is around trying to get a glimpse of you.”
“That must be hard..” I said looking at him.
“Yeah, but you get used to it.” He was looking straight concentrating on getting out of the parking lot.
“Thank you, For the phone.” I Said.
“Thank you for putting up with my fans.” He Laughed.
I smiled, I was definitely going to have to get used to this. We pulled back into Niall’s Drive way, grabbed all of the shopping bags, and back into the house. Walking into the house, to my surprise Maiya was sitting on the couch with two other girls. They were gorgeous one with long wavy locks of dark brown hair, and the other darker skinned with Curly light brown hair.
“Maiya? What are you doing here?” Before she could answer Harry walked into the room.
“Emma can I see you in the kitchen?” He said.
I looked back at Niall confused. He shrugged his shoulders. “sure?” I Said then questioning harry and making my way into the kitchen,
“Is Maiya seeing anyone?”
“Oh I was just curious.” A smile started to grow on his face. It was so big it came off creepy.
“Were you the one who told her to come over?”
“Yeah. I did.” He answered quick.
“I don’t know.” He said blushing to the ground.
“Do you like her?” I Burst out.
“Shh!” He spit at me. “She’ll here you!” he said turning his head around the kitchen corner, and then back at me.
I laughed at him once more and we both fled the kitchen. I Walked back out into the living room to Louis and Liam sitting beside the girls.
“Oh Emma!” Louis said waving me over to him and the girls. “This Is my girlfriend Eleanor.” He said pointing to the girl with long wavy hair sitting beside him.
“Nice to meet you.” I said shaking her head.
“I’m Danielle, Liam’s girlfriend.” The Darker skinned girl said holding out her hand towards me. I shook it and replied with “Emma.”
Niall pulled me up stairs and into his room. He took his jeans off so he was left in his boxers, then took of his shirt, and hopped onto the bed.
“I’m tired.” He yawned. burring his head into his pillow and I joined him in the bed. He quickly pulled himself close to me and we immediately fell asleep.
Week had gone by, Weeks since I had seen him. We talked on the phone every chance we got, but it wasn’t enough. I missed waking up to his bright blue eyes and cute smile. I Miss cuddling up to him when I was cold. I got out of Maiya’s bed and looked at my face. The bruises had faded, I was finally back to my normal face. Then I through on Niall sweater he had left behind for me to wear.
“Where are you going?” Maiya asked half asleep.
“No where I just,” I paused. “I just can;t sit in that bed all day thinking about him again!” I said knowing I was becoming depressed, not seeing him.
“Just relax, Stop obsessing over it, and before you know it, he’ll be back again.”
“I can’t just relax! Its been five Weeks, but it’s felt like five years!” I Exclaimed.
I Grabbed my suitcase and than I had brought to Niall’s before he left. And starting all of my stuff I could possibly fit in there.
“What are you doing?” She asked.
“I’m seeing Niall.” I replied.
“You can’t just go to Italy, Emma!” I was annoyed.
“Watch me.” I snapped back. Grabbing my purse of her dresser. I Went to open her door. She got out of bed and groaned.
“I’ll drive you” she said, grabbing her car keys.
“Thank you.” I Said.
we started driving. “How are you going to pay for this plane ticket?” She then asked knowing I have never really had any money.
“Before Niall left he gave me a credit card for emergencies.” I paused. “This is an emergency.”
Arriving at the airport I got out of her car said goodbye and walked through. I bought one ticket on the quickest flight to Rome, Italy. Soon after hearing the flight attendant call for that flight. It was a long flight. I watched movies, nervous to think of what Niall’s reaction would be. The flight ended and I walked through the airport. I called a taxi and headed to The St. Regis Grand Rome. The five star hotel they were staying at.
Soon As the car came to a stop I Jumped out of the car excited not forgetting to grab my luggage. I Walked into the huge hotel, it was so fancy and elegant. I Made my way to the front desk.
“Hello, Could you tell me what room the members of One Direction are staying in? I asked her politely.
“No, Ma’am I’m sorry. I’m not aloud to give that away, do to all of the fans.” She answered back in a think Italian accent.
“I’m not a fan, I’m his girlfriend.”
“Sorry hun, Tough Luck.” She wasn’t very nice.
I Then called Niall.
“Hey Niall what room number are you and the boys staying in?”
“407, Why?” He sounded confused.
I didn’t know what to say, ” I’ll explain later bye!” I hung up the phone. And headed into the elevator. I looked around for the room. When I found it I gave a loud knock. Opening the door was Liam, wearing a suit. “Emma!” He shouting reaching out for a hug. “What on earth are you doing here?” He asked.
“I missed you guys!” I said following him through out there hotel room. It was huge, he explained that they all had their own rooms within the hotel room. I laughed at the cute way he explained it. I Stopped at Niall’s room and opened the door. He was standing in front of the mirror in a suit, His hair was perfectly gelled up to on side. He seemed to be looking down tying his tie.
“Don’t we look handsome?” I smirked.
”Emma!” He turned around and ran to me forgetting about his tie. My smile grew way to big, he picked me up, and kissed me. It was way too long since I’ve had him kiss me. I didn’t want to leave that moment. But he soon put me down. I was left looking up into his beautiful blue eyes.
“What’s with the suit?” I asked him, while tying his tie properly.
“We have some stupid award show to go to, but now that you’re here I don’t really want to go.” I Could hear the disappointment in his voice.
“Don’t worry, go! I’ll be here when you get back.”
“Do you wanna come?” He sounded hopeful.
“Niall, I want to but I can’t possibly. I don’t have any clothes to wear to an event like that.”
“Danielle Is with us. She had a dancing at the award show, so she’s sharing a hotel with us. She has tons of dresses, I’m sure she’ll let you borrow one!” He explained. “Go ask her! she’s in Liams room.”
I Walked over to Liam’s room And opened the door. “Danielle?”
“Yeah Love?” She said fixing her earrings and walking out from her bathroom.
“Niall, wants me to go to the award show tonight, but I have nothing nice to wear. He told me to ask you if I could borrow a dress?”
“Of course hun! Come here!” She said grabbing my hand and dragging me towards Liams closet. Opening It I realized she took over his closet. She went through the dresses and pulled on out. It was pink and sparkly, It went to just above my knees and it was strapless. It was beautiful. I said thank you, and headed back to Niall’s room to change. I Fixed up My make up and was ready to go. Niall came back into the room.
“You look beautiful!” He said with another quick kiss. “I’m so glad you’re here.”
We walked out and joined the rest of the boys and Danielle, who was in her dance costume. We All headed down stairs and through the fans into a long black limo. Then we arrived on the red carpet. Cameras flashed in all different directions and chatter was everywhere. I was unsure where to look. Niall Told me to just to follow him so I did. At the end of the carpet there were a bunch of reporters.
“Niall! Niall! Who’s She?” Said one man with a hat on yelled.
“Is she your girlfriend?” Said another.
Niall ignored them and kept pulling me with him.
Soon we got into the building and took our seats right near centre stage. The award show was long and boring with a bunch of Italian people no one really knew. After the long night we got back into the Limo and headed back to the hotel.
“Why did we go if you guys weren’t nominated for anything?” I asked getting changed back into comfortable clothes.
“They wanted us to make an appearance.” He said getting changed as well. “I didn’t think it would be that boring.”
“Oh, well its good you made an appearance.”
“You know Emma, I really missed you.” He said making his way towards me. He was in his boxers getting closer and closer.
“I missed you too.” He was now close enough to put my arms around.
He leaned in for a gentle kiss. And his arms wrapped around my waist. We made our way towards the bed. Leaning over me, my back was pressed against the mattress, The passion increased as he forced his body closer to mine, making every inch of me want him. He bit his lip and went in for another kiss, holding me close.
“Are you sure you’re ready?”
He asked me worried he was taking it to far. I Nodded and he continued. I was more than ready, I had been waiting for this moment. He eased inside me gently. He started Thrusting as I easily matched his rhythm. Everything was right with the world in that wonderful moment.
THE FANS chapter 10
The next morning I woke to our clothes spread all about the room, wrapping the blanket around me I got up and got into the shower. I started to think of how perfect the night before was. Soon I heard the bathroom door open.
“Hey babe, wanna go out for some breakfast, Before The Boys and I have our interview?”
“Yeah sure!” I called over the loud water hitting the ground of the shower.
“Ok hun, hurry up and get ready!”
“Okay! Be out in ten!” I heard the door shut.
I Finish rinsing the soap out of my hair and got out of the shower. I wrapped the towel around me and walked into the room. Niall was ready to go. I Quickly put on one of my cutest outfits and left, knowing we were going to the interview right after.
We pushed through the screaming fans. All were screaming out Italian So I had no idea what they said. When we finally got into the car we drove up the street to a cute little cafe’ with blue shutters on the windows. We ordered And sat for a while. Them finally coming out with our food.
“Thank you.” I said to the waitress as she turned around and walked away.
I started eating when I felt Niall staring at me, I looked up and his eyes met mine.
“Last Night Was amazing.” He spoke out.
“It was.” I Agreed with a smile. Not understanding why he was bringing it up.
“I love you, so much.” He assured me.
“I Love you too.”
“I want you to know that.” He said looking into my eyes. He was acting weird.
“I Know Niall?” I said In A questioning tone.
“We’re going to an interview today. I plan on telling people we are dating if it is brought up.” He said.
“Okay.” I was happy, he actually wanted to show me off.
“But I want you to Know I love you, and what they say means nothing.” I was confused at this.
“What would who say?”
“Sometimes the fans are a little to protective of us boys.” He paused “They sometimes message and tweet rude comments, and I don’t want what they say to upset you.” I finally understood.
“Niall I don’t care what people say about me, I’ve delt with it all my life” I assured him. “It doesn’t bother me anymore.” I explained.
“Ok Babe. I’m always here if you need to talk.” He Explained to me.
“I Know.” I said As he leaned across the table for a kiss.
Soon we were leaving the cafe and meeting the rest of the boys at the interview.
He left me with Danielle, and ran off for hair and make up.
“Hey Danielle?” I asked. “Do you ever get hate from the fans?”
“I used to, and I guess every once in a while i’ll get some from someone rude, But most of the girls got over it, and as they got to know me they started to like me.” She went on. “The fans don’t really trust anyone, there very protective of the guys, and want to make sure the girl won’t break one of the boys hearts. Although some are just mad because he fell for you and not them.”
She seemed to know a lot.
“Was It hard to handle?” I Asked
“Sometimes, But With 100 nice comments there’s one bad. So I just focus on the nice ones.”
“Oh, Okay, thanks.” I said. The boys then got on set.
They asked tons of questions some fans even sent some in. Then the question came up. Who’s single and who’s taken. Harry Then Raised His hand and said he was single, and Zayn said so as well. Harry, Louis And Niall Said That They Were All Dating.
He Looked out to me and smiled, They then turned the camera around to Danielle and I And we waved. They continued on with the rest of the interview, with the boys being their funny selves. When the interview was done they came up to us and Niall gave me a kiss. And we headed to their dressing room. I went on twitter on my phone. And Directioners were already going mad from seeing the live interview. No one was sending me hate but A lot were tweeting things about Niall having a girlfriend and them trying to figure out who I was. Because My name was never said.
Niall got changed back into his original clothes and we headed out of the building. Fans were surrounding it screaming. A lot were asking my name And pulling at me. But I just kept pushing through.
When we got back to the hotel when Maiya called.
“Go on twitter!” She barked at me.
I went on twitter, And they finally figured out my name. Emma Facter, was trending on twitter.
“Why do they care so much?” I asked Her.
“Because Any girl would kill to be in your shoes.” She Instantly said back to me.
“I guess.” I missed Maiya, But if i left I would miss Niall.
“I miss you.” She then admitted to me. It had only been two days, but we were usually with each other every second. I Had so much to fill her in on.
“Do you maybe want to come visit in Italy, because it will probably be a while until I come back?” I asked hopeful.
“Yes!” She screamed Into the phone “Are you kidding me? Travel the word with my bestfriend and One Direction? Did you even have to ask.” She Was really excited.
“Well book a flight as soon as possible and text me when you’re on your way here.” I told her as she agreed, hanging up the phone.
I walked out to the living area in the hotel room.
“Hey Harry guess what?” I said in a teasing tone.
“What?” He said wondering why I sounded like that.
“Maiya’s Coming!” I winked at him.
“What?!” He seemed mad. “I’m not even presentable!” He Yelled out running into his room. “I have to smell good!” He complained.
I Laughed to myself, This Was going to be good. Time to play match maker. Niall then came over and asked what that was about, I told him the details.
I WILL KEEP YOU SAFE Chapter 11
I was running, soon coming to an ally way. I ducked in there hoping he wouldn’t follow. Within seconds he was there, knowing exactly where I would be he shoved me into the graffitied walls. I watched in silent horror as a man who was my father grabbed me by the shirt with a look of pure rage in his eyes, he was closing in on me. I stood as still as stone, waiting for whatever terror awaited me in just a few moments. My father raised his strong, intimidating hand and stuck me across the cheek, leaving an angry red welt. I felt myself shut down. I whimpered and closed my eyes, then turned away from his vicious eyes. He again raised his hand, this time clenching it into a fist. Concentrating all of his anger into one blow, he hit me straight in the stomach, knocking the air out of my lungs. Defenceless, I was crying now, unsure if I should try to run or get away. He stuck me a few more times, finally released me, satisfied. I felt limp against the ground, bruises already beginning to form. We locked eyes before I saw him reaching for something. Blurring out of my eyes was a shiny long object, focussing in it seemed to be a knife, knowing I had no chance I just cried, knowing my life would soon be over. He came closer to me with the sharp knife in his hand, I started squirming as the grip he had on my arm tightened. It become so tight I was left with a numbing feeling. His Arm Raised Clenching the Knife. Lowering it fast, before hitting my stomach I jumped. Returning to Mine and Niall’s Hotel room. Tears Were streaming down my cheeks. I Brought my knees up to my stomach and buried my face into them. I Felt arms reach around me.
“Emma, What’s wrong why are you crying?” Niall Said In A Sleepy, Raspy voice.
”I-I Was, He Was, And A Knife.” I Made No sense, but it was hard getting it out, I could barely breath from crying so much.
“Hun, Calm down.” He comforted “It’s alright you’re with me now, it was just a dream.” He assured me.
“It felt so real.” I admitted, finally looking up at him.
“Was it your dad?” He Asked me.
I nodded wiping the tears from my sobbing face.
“Emma, don’t worry, as long as you have me, you will always be safe, I will never let him hurt you again.” He paused “No One will ever hurt you again.” He reassured, he was so protective, but I didn’t mind, he never wanted to make me feel uncomfortable and he was always there to comfort me when needed. I could never ask for anyone better. He kissed me, gently, passionately. We laid in each others quickly falling back asleep.
YOU’RE FINALLY HERE! Chaper12
I woke later that morning to a text from Maiya letting me know she would be landing soon. I woke Niall up and told him we had to go get Maiya from the airport, he got up, looking exhausted. He grabbed his keys and headed out the door as I followed. Going down to the lobby we were surrounded by fans, It was actually quite embarrassing still being in our pajamas with unbrushed messy hair, but it was still really early. Pictures were being taken as I tried to hide my face. When we got to the airport we waited for Maiya, having a casual conversation. I turned my head. There she was, I ran over to her and hugged her, assuring her that I missed her. On the drive back to the hotel we talked about whats been going on and where we are travelling next.
“This Hotel is gorgeous!” She said looking all around the lobby.
We walked through all the fans and went back up to our room. I showed her around and then we sat down in the living area. Harry walked in at that moment in his boxers, and messy hair, His eyes were half shut and He walked slumping down.
”Hi Harry!” Maiya Said positively.
Harry froze, He stayed glued to that one spot. His eyes widened, wider than I thought possible. His face then turned the brightest shade of red. “Emma,” He Seemed mad, Not having that cheeky smile that usually followed him. ”Can I talk to you for a second, in private.” He gestured me to come towards his bedroom. Walking in he shut the door.
“Why didn’t you tell me she was here!” He groaned at me. “I Looked horrible!”
“She doesn’t care!” I assured him.
“I Do!” He then yelled, sitting back on his bed.
I sat beside him. “Harry, why do you like her so much, not trying to be rude but, you’ve barely even talked to her.” I said nicely as possible.
“I Talk to her enough!”He groaned at me once more. “We text and skype. And besides that! She’s very pretty.” He said looking at the ground.
“You’re a dork.” I smirked at him shaking my hand through his bed head of curly locks. “Just get presentable and go talk to her.” I said walking out of his room. Within the ten minutes Harry came out of his room, fully clothed and cheeky as ever.
“Yeah Harry?” She replyed
“Do you wanna, maybe, go get some breakfast with me?” He said nervous waiting for the answer.
“Sure” Maiya said picking up her purse and sliding on her shoes. I don’t think she had a single clue that he liked her.
I laughed to myself and headed back into the room with Niall, he was sitting there playing video games with Liam, as Danielle watched. I Grabbed my clothes out of my suitcase and went to the bathroom to change. I came out two minutes later, looking semi presentable.
“What Are you boys playing?”
“Shh!” They both snapped in unison.
“I’m concentrating on beating Liam!” He Said teasing Liam.
“Some War game.” Danielle said to me in a boring tone.
“Do You wanna go shopping?” I Said to her unimpressed at how immature our boyfriends were.
“Sounds great!” She said excited rushing to her room to get ready.
Today was going to be a fun day.
AWKWARD chapter 13
No Fans really seamed to notice us at the mall, we walked around for a bit, buying some clothes, And having a good time, we decided we were hungry and went to get some food. We got subway and headed to a table to sit.
“So How are you and Niall?” She asked me starting casual conversation.
“Good, Great actually.” I Said taking a massive bite of my sandwich.
“You guys had sex right? How was it?”
I Found myself choking on my food. She was so nonchalant. I found this question awkward, And I had know idea how to answer it.
“What?” I Said wondering what would make her ask that.
“Niall told Liam, and Liam told me.” One thing I had recognized about Danielle is she was not shy, at all. And she always spoke her mind.
“Oh, why did Niall tell Liam?” It was awkward to me, talking about this subject, I was never really one to open up, talk about my feelings, or my problems, never mind my love life.
“Well Liam Is His bestfriend” She paused “I’m sorry, I Didn’t mean to make you uncomfortable.” I Think she could easily see the uncomfort in my face, Danielle seemed worried like she had taken it too far. I felt bad, I needed to be more brave, and honestly she was just trying to be my friend, someone I would tell everything to.
“It was romantic.” I said to her, trying to hide my obvious embarrassment.
“Really?” She questioned. “So It was good.”
I Sort of laughed to my self. “It was kind of a bit, awkward.” I didn’t know if that was the right word to describe how I felt but I said it any way.
“Why Is That love?” She leaned in closer, seeming more interested.
“It was my first time.” I Said to her, looking down at the floor.
“Shut up!” She said to me. “No Way!” She leaned back again.
“Yea.” I said quick, trying not to prolong the subject.
“How old are you?” She asked.
“Sixteen.” I admitted.
“Oh well that’s not bad at all, I had always thought you were Niall’s age”
“Oh, How old is Niall?” I asked, with my mind lingering on the fact that I didn’t even know how old he was.
She laughed ” Almost 19, hun.” She took another bite of her sandwich.
I hadn’t thought he was that much older than me. It shocked me how little I actually knew about him, we rushed into things so fast, I never really took the time to know all the details about him.
“Oh.” I Let out a slight laugh.
“He really likes you.” She said to me.
“What did he say?” I could feel the smile spreading across my face. Honestly whenever this subject came up I couldn’t control how happy I got.
“Well he always goes on about how happy you make him, how pretty you are, how lucky he is, Blah Blah Blah.” She mocked him, shoving her face back into her sandwich.
“Oh, he said that?” I smiled again.
“Yeah.” She said with a full mouth of food.
We gathered up our garbage and through it out. We grabbed our shopping bags and headed to the parking lot. I wondered what Maiya was doing, and how breakfast with Harry went. There were all the screaming fans, awaiting are arrival back to the hotel. Heading in we tried not to get ambushed by girls.
“We’re home!” Danielle called into the hotel room.
“Lovely!” Liam Called walking up to Danielle welcoming her with a kiss. “I want you to help me pick out an outfit to wear tomorrow for the interview.”
“Bye hun! It was nice chatting with you!” She said as Liam Pulled her into his room.
“Emma!” I Heard Niall call, as it echoed through the huge hotel room. “I’m in the kitchen!” He called again. I Headed through the hotel room and to kitchen. ”Hey Babe.” He said before kissing me. The kitchen was a mess! A complete disaster, there was food everywhere.
“What happened in here?” I asked looking around the disaster of a kitchen.
“I Got hungry.” He smirked.
“Why didn’t you just call room service?”
“I didn’t want room service, there portions are small.”
I laughed at him, starting to clean up his mess. The hotel door opened, within a minute Maiya and Harry walked in the kitchen.
“Hey! How was breakfast?” Niall asked giving Harry a look I could not unpuzzle.
“Great!” Harry said placing his arm around Maiya’s shoulder.
“What a mess!” Maiya said not even paying attention to Harry.
“Did you get hungry again Niall?” Harry said joking.
“So this happens alot?” I said laughing at Niall, still cleaning the mess.
“More than a lot!” Harry said laughing.
“Do you wanna go for a walk?” I asked Maiya.
“Sure” She said.
“Be careful!” Niall called out, while we were almost out the door. “The fans are crazy sometimes!” He called out again.
“We will!” Maiya and I called out in unison.
We left the hotel, and a good ten or so fans followed us around for a while, asking who Maiya was, and why she was seen with Harry.
Once they all gave up on following us we started talking.
“I Had sex with Niall.” I Came right out and said it, Maiya was the person I could tell anything to, with out any awkwardness involved. She was never one to judge and you could always count on her for great advice. I Had known her since we were 6. And she knew everything you could possibly know about me.
“Oh my god! Really?” She seemed overly excited.
“Details!”She shrieked at me.
I laughed at her excitement. “I Love him.” I said.
“I already know that! Was it good?” I wondered why everybody asked that.
“Of course!” I said with confidence. “Awkward though.”
“I can’t believe this! When?” She then asked.
“A couple of days ago, after the award show.” I told her.
“You’re so lucky!” She wined at me.
“Why?” I found that confusing.
“Because you have a boyfriend!” She trailed off. “I want a boyfriend!” She wined again.
“You’ll have one soon.” I said smirking at her.
“What does that mean?” She questioned me.
“Never mind.” I decided against telling her Harry was crushing. Considering she didn’t know, Harry might not want to tell her. By the end of the walk I had caught her up on everything about Niall and I. We went passed the screaming fans that still hadn’t left and back up to the room. I wondered if Maiya and Harry would end up together. What Maiya thought of Harry, and also when she would be leaving. I was so unsure of everything.
GOODBYE chapter 14
Saying goodbye was going to be hard, I don’t know if I could do it. This summer has gone by way too fast. I have to go back home. Focus on school. I don’t wanna leave. We all sat around the couches talking to eachother, but I couldn’t find it in myself to be social. I was sad, depressed and honestly a little scared of what could happen to mine and Niall’s relationship, being away from each other. I looked around the room, across from me, beside Harry was Maiya. She seemed just as sad as I was, looking down and not talking very much at all. I felt bad for her. Harry and Maiya have only been dating for about a week, and we have to leave tomorrow. I couldn’t stop thinking about how much I’d miss him.
“Babe, Are you feeling ok?” He asked looking down at me, his arm wrapped around my shoulder.
“Yea.” I assured him, not sounding believable. “Just tired.” I spoke out.
I wasn’t just tired, and he could tell, but there wasn’t much he could do. Either way I was praying for tomorrow not to come.
“Wanna talk?” He whispered in my ear. I nodded, we got up and continued to our room.
“Are you sad about tomorrow?” He said sympathetic.
I nodded trying not to show my emotions towards the subject. He came over and wrapped his arms around me. It was probably the best hug he could ever give.
“Let’s go out.” He said hopeful and cheery.
I took his hand and we headed out the door. We went for a walk and ended up stopping at a diner. We sat down and talked for a bit.
“Is everything going to change?” I asked not very bluntly.
“What do you mean?” He questioned me, sounding confused.
“Well, I’m scared something will happen, with us not seeing each other, and well I’m sure you’ll meet other girls.” I stopped myself before I sounded stupid. I was honest with him. I wanted to make sure all of this would work.
“Emma, I love you.” He paused. “I don’t know things will be hard, and they’ll only get harder. But I wanna make it work, I can’t see myself not being with you.” He paused again, I don’t think he new what to say next. I leaned over the little diner table and kissed him. I really hope We can make it work.
After leaving the diner we stopped at a shop and he said he wanted to grab something. I waited in the car and within five minutes he came back out. With A huge bag. And got in the car. He wouldn’t let me see in the bag, and I got anxious.
We hung out at the hotel with everyone, and when the time came, we went to bed. I found it hard to sleep, knowing tomorrow I would have to leave. I got out of bed and headed for the kitchen. Turning on the light I jumped. As usual Harry was there eating frosties.
” What are you doing up?” I asked him.
“Couldn’t sleep.” He replied shoving another spoon full of cereal in his mouth.
“Me either.” I replied grabbing a bowl from the hotel cupboard. Sitting across from him on the island in the kitchen.
“Why are you having trouble sleeping?” He asked me.
“I don’t want to leave, you?” I asked him.
“I don’t want Maiya to leave.” He confessed.
I nodded, Then poured some frosties into my bowl, followed by milk. We sat in silence. It was the middle of the night and we were both tired.
“Do you wanna do something?” He questioned me.
“Like what?” I questioned back.
“I don’t know. Anything.” He said.
“I’m pretty tired.” I felt bad to disappoint.
“Oh, Want to watch a movie?” He said determined.”
I agreed, we put are dished in the sink and went and put on a movie. Harry chose the notebook, which surprised me, I didn’t think he’d be into, Chick flicks. And Hour into the movie we were both crying.
The light flicked on, Harry and I looked over the back of the couch, to see Niall Rubbing His eyes, and Messy bed head blonde hair.
“What are you two doing? What are you up?” He interrogated.
“We couldn’t sleep.” We said in unison.
“Oh well, It’s a long flight babe. You should really get some rest.” I joined Niall and went and laid down in the room with him. Soon enough I fell asleep, And Too soon I was woken up.
“C’mon sleepy heads! Time to wake up!” Louis yelled poking his head into our bedroom.
I sat up ready to pass back out. I didn’t bother taking a shower. I could care less what I look like, I just didn’t want to leave. Me and Niall headed into the Living area Where Maiya and I met up with our suitcases. Not ready to leave. We Said goodbye To everyone, Liam, Zayn, Louis. And Left for the car With Niall And Harry.
Niall Passed Me The Bag. Then told me not to open it until I got home. I wanted to sneak a peek, But it was completely sealed.
“Flight 22 is Now boarding.” Was said over the intercom.
“That’s me.” I said looking down. Niall lifted my chin with his finger. And gave me a gentle Kiss. A tear strolled down my face, then his. “I love you Emma, I’ll call every day. The tour will be over before we know it.” He assured me. One last hug, and there I was headed for the plain. I just wanted to crawl into a ball, and die.
COME HOME Chapter 15
Two weeks. Two weeks it has been, since I last seen Niall. He hasn’t called, Texted, or Tweeted. I havent even heard from him, not once. I don’t know if I should be worried or angry. Its almost as if he disappeared from the earth. He’s all that has been running through my mind these last two weeks, and apearently, I didn’t cross his once. I honestly don’t know what I’ve turned into, Depressed and sad all the time.
“I’m sure he’s just busy.” Maiya Assured me
“That’s not it at all.” I answered back,”Harry has called you hasn’t he?” I asked her.
She was hesitant, almost as though she didn’t want to answer my question. “Yes.” She Admitted. I stood up and walked into her bedroom, Picked up my phone, And tried Niall’s Cell.
Voice mail. Again.
I picked up my laptop and went on twitter. It seemed to be the usual tweets, Some Hate, Some Compliments, Some Asking For Follows. I always Tried my best to follow most back, But it got really hard as more and more followed.
My heart stopped, I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. ‘Niall Horan Caught Cheating.’ I could’t help but click on it. I was immediately brought to sugar scape. I scrolled down this huge artical until I came across a Picture. I slammed my laptop shut. And Tears Uncontrollably came pouring out of my eyes. I didn’t know what to do. I was so alone. I had no family, No Boyfriend, And I couldn’t even find it in my to talk to Maiya. I laid my head down and cried my self to sleep.
I woke up and drug myself outta of bed. I walked down the stairs. And there was my dad. His hair was brushed, with a clean shaven face. I smelt cologne, not beer. I didn’t know If I should freak out and run away. Or stop to question everything going on. I took another step down.
“Emma.” He spoke out. “I’m so sorry.” He pleaded next.
I just stood there, looking at him. Surprised those words came out of his mouth.
“I got myself cleaned up, and I want you to come home.” He said to me next.
He looked sincere, I didn’t know what to do. I couldn’t be let down again. Not from him, not from Niall, or anyone. But on the other hand he’s my dad, And he cleaned himself up.
“I don’t know dad.” I stopped myself. “I just can’t.”
“Take your time.” He interrupted. “It doesn’t have to be right away.” He stopped. “But eventually?” He asked.
“Of course.” I said to him uneasy, not really caring what I was promising.
I walked past him and into the kitchen where Maiya was sitting.
“What is going on?” I whispered to her. “Did you know about this?”
“I wanted to help.” She Spit out confessing what she had done.
“It wasn’t your job to help, Now you’ve just brought all of the problems Back.” I was angry.
“How?” She snapped. “He’s Better now! He’s ready to be a dad! And you’re going to push him away again!”
“He deserves to be pushed away.” I clenched my teeth. I couldn’t deal with this, not now. I ran up stairs and grabbed Nialls credit card, then stormed out of the house. I took a taxi to the airport, and off I was. The first flight to New York.
Getting off the plane, I realized I hadn’t really thought this through. Where are the boys staying? What am I going to say to Niall? I started Walking the streets. Tweeting on my phone. Lots of people were saying that the boys were staying at The Plaza. I whistled down a Taxi, And Off I was. I entered the hotel, and asked for there rooms.
“Sorry Hun. They Rented Out The whole entire 40th floor. The security Is jammed, There is know way you’ll sneak a peak.”
“Oh Ok.” I played along with being a fan. “Can I rent A Room on the 39th floor?”
“Sure Hun.” She charged me and I rushed to the elevator. Thoughts filters in and out of my head. I wanted to run into Nialls arms, and just cry. But I want answers. I skipped the 39th floor, and went right to the 40th. I jumped out and saw Andy, And Paul.
“Emma!” Shouted Paul as he hugged me. I didn’t realize how much I missed Paul, until now.
“Hi Paul. What room is Niall in?” I asked politely.
“703. ” He said to me. And then nodded his head to the direction the room was in.
I walked hesitantly towards the room and Knocked on the door. As it opened, my stomach filled with butterflies. There was Niall, hair slightly longer than last time. He was wearing a plain white t-shirt, and baggy blue pants.
He jumped closer and squeezed me. Tighter than ever before. I felt him tense up, And take a big breath, almost a sigh.
He let go and nudged past me. I stood there frozen as I watched him storm down the hallway and into the elevator. I was confused. All I could think was, that he was going to break up with me. I slid my back down the wall until my knees were chest level. I buried my head into them. And Just sobbed.
“Emma.” A worried voice. I knew who it was. Harry sat beside me, and wrapped his arm around my shoulder. “What are you doing here? What’s the matter?”
I just leaned on his shoulder and cried. “Come with me.” He said looking down at my red face. I stood up, and followed him. He lead me into a room further down the hall. Opened the door, and sat me on the bed. He sat beside me, as I cried more.
“Emma? What Happened?” He asked again.
“Niall.” I just said that and Harry seemed to know exactly what I meant.
“You saw that?” Harry Asked me.
”Yea, I can’t believe He’d do that.” I admitted.
“Emma, He was drunk.” He protected Niall.
“That’s No excuse!” I yelled at him.
He just looked at me, shocked that I’d belt out like that.
“I’m sorry Harry, It’s just, I understand whatever, He cheated. Why Is he ignoring me, and Walking away from me, when we hug. What Is Going on?”
He Looked at me. “We went clubbing, And He was really really drunk, Emma. Some guy were bugging him about being a pussy, because he wouldn’t hook up with anyone. So to make them stop. He gave my sister a quick kiss on the lips.”
I couldn’t believe what I was hearing.
“He asked her first, and she said it was ok. It was all set up. But then someone snapped a picture of it.”
“But why would he ask to kiss her? Why wouldn’t he just walk about from those guys?” I asked.
“Because Emma. Niall Cares way too much, what other people think about him.”
I looked down. I didn’t know what to do. I just hugged Harry. And said thank you. and Walked out, and back to Nialls room. I walked in and waited. I watched some T.V and finally he was back. I heard him come in.
“Niall. Please sit.” I begged.
He walked in, and sat down.
“I know, I know everything. And It’s ok.” I said to him. He stayed silent. “Please say something.” I asked him.
“I’m so sorry.” He spit out. “It’s been so hard not talking to you.” He started to cry. I was confused.
“Then why were you not talking to me?” I said confused.
“I thought if I talked to you, you would break us up.” He looked down and wiped some tears from his face.
“Why Would I do that?” I asked him.
“Because Emma!” He seemed frustrated. “You knew about us cheating, and I know you’d ask for answers and I didn’t know how to explain. And I thought maybe you’d break up with me because of all this. And I love you so much. I Just..”
I stopped him with a kiss. A slow, Gentle Kiss.
FOREVER chapter 16
Sitting alone wasn’t my favourite thing to do, the wait seemed to be taking forever. To be honest I really didn’t want to get on that plane. I wanted to stay with Niall, and I really didn’t want to deal with everything back home.
Sitting on the plane was the worst. I didn’t want to be there alone. I wanted Niall to come home with me, and help me with all these decisions. But no, he was with the rest of the boys. Having the time of their lives. I was happy for them, I really was. It’s just I wish he wasn’t as busy, as he was.
The plane was about to take off, and this boy comes and sits aside me. He was very good looking, dark skin, perfectly gelled hair. He sat, and the area filled with his scent. It was relaxing like sea breeze, salty and foamy waves, freshness of breezes and calming rays of sun along with herbal, aromatic fragrances. It smelt amazing.
I couldn’t believe how attractive the boy really was. I felt myself gawking at him. He turned around and caught me staring. I snapped out of my openly staring and my face went red. He slightly smiled at me. And I blushed some more.
“Hi!” He reminded me of Harry almost, Cheeky, Even by Just Saying Hi.
“Hey.” I said back, quiet.
“I’m Matt.” still sounding cheeky.
“Emma.” I said and shook his hand.
It was like we connected, Within minutes of knowing eachother we started to talk about a lot.
“So are you going on vacation?” He asked me.
“No, I’m going home.” I told him.
He smiled at me. “Me Too.”
I gave him my number before the plane landed And said goodbye.
I went back to Maiya’s as soon as possible, I was exhausted.
The morning went by slow, All I could think about was my dad, I really didn’t want to make the wrong decision. Niall was away, and no one was there to protect me if something happened.
I felt tears leave my eyes, I couldn’t help myself. I know I had just seen him, but I missed him, always being there, I was really not excited for the weekend to be over. I couldn’t focus on school, So much was wrong with my life at that exact moment.
“Emma?” I heard Maiya say from behind me.
“Yea?” I quickly wiped my tears away, not facing her.
“Are you still mad at me?” She sat beside me on the couch.
It was hard to stay mad at her, especially with everything she’s done for me, but she really had no right to get in the middle of that.
“No, But why did you do it?” I waited for the response
“Because I wanted you to be happy, Your dad wanted to get help so he did, and he misses you, don’t turn your back on him, when he needs you most.”
“He turned on me, when I needed him more than ever. I understand he’s clean now, but I don’t think I could go home ever again without feeling scared.”
“You need to give him another chance. Emma, Nothing will happen.” She patted my back then stood up, and walked into the next room.
My phone started ringing and I picked it up. A smile spread across my face.
“Niall!” I screamed into the phone.
“Emma! Guess what?” He sounded excited.
“What?” I was suddenly intrigued.
“The next three shows were cancelled! Because of the buildings technical difficulties!”
“Awe That Sucks! I’m sorry to hear that, babe.”
“No Emma! That means I have a whole week to spend with you!”
“Really?!” I was so excited hearing him say that.
“I’m getting the first flight out! see you as soon possible!”
The day went by, as I grew more impatient to see him.
“Hey love, Can you pick me up from the airport now?”
“Be Right there!” I hung up the phone and rushed out of the house. Passing through the airport, I saw everyone but Niall, I looked everywhere and couldn’t find him. I was starting to worry.
I nearly jumped 2 feet in the air. I turned to see Niall, comfy In his sweat pants and messy hair. I jumped and wrapped my legs around him, he held on to me tight.
“I love you.” I whispered in his ear.
He leaned away from my face and simply said,
“Forever and Ever Babe.”
FRUSTRATION chapter 17
Waking up to knots in my stomach wasn’t the best feeling, I was so nervous. I turned onto my side looking at Niall, He was sound asleep, his breathing deep and relaxed, all the muscles in his face and body were totally at peace, Not a twitch, not a spasm, barely any movement of his chest rising and falling with each intake of air. This was a body totally at peace, at rest, at one with itself, rejuvenating the mind and muscles before the onset of yet another day of turmoil. I could tell the day before he was nervous too. Maybe even scared. We both were. Suddenly I could see his eyes squint shut trying to ward off the filtered sunlight drifting in, His face filled with the inevitable dread of opening them to the sudden glare of a dimly lit room, Finally his opened eyes caught mine.
“Good Morning babe.” He said his voice scratchy
He let out a long yawn and stretch.
“Good morning.” I said back.
“What’s wrong?” He looked worried, I found it so weird he could tell that something was wrong so easily.
“Just a little nervous about today.” I admitted.
“Me too.” He said looking down. “I can’t believe your going back there.”
“I need to, I really think he’s changed.”
“I feel like its my job to talk you out of going. I really don’t wanna go with you Emma.” He said looking into my eyes.
“Niall I need you there.” I begged.
“I don’t know how I’m supposed to go there, and look that man in the eyes.” His normally calm and pleasant demeanor slowly changed and his face contorted in anger. His nostrils flaring, His hands clenched into fists, trying to hold back his frustration. “After everything he has done to you.” He paused and took a deep breath. “I just can’t Emma.” He turned and looked at me. “I simply can’t.” Then looked down at himself with disappointment.
My stomach started to feel even more queasy. I felt like I was going to throw up. The idea of doing this without Niall made me want to run and hide.
“Well Niall, you’re going to have to come.” I realized, “I’m going to be living there, and you still have the week your staying with us.
“Fuck!” He said, “Do you think we can just stay with Maiya?” he asked.
“No Niall, I need to go back sometime, and I want you there with me, it will help me feel safer. Please.” I could almost cry.
“Fine.” He said crossing his arms, I laughed at how silly he looked. “What’s so funny?” He asked me trying to be serious. “Your such a dork!” I joked hitting him with my pillow.
“Gahhhh!” He screamed jumping onto me as I laughed, and laughed. We rolled around wrestling for a while and then it stopped. He looked into my eyes and gave me a long kiss.
“I love you so much.” He said. And kissed me again.
“I Know.” I joked as a pushed him off of me and got out of bed, I began to get dressed as he watched me, with the stupidest face you could imagine. Finally he got up and put his clothes on as well.
“Are you ready to go?” I asked him.
“Not really.” He gave me a face of being not so impressed.
“Oh, come on!” I said pulling him out of my bedroom.
Walking up the path to my front porch gave me a feeling I thought I had long forgot. Apart of me wanted to run and never come back, another part wanted to hug my dad and tell him how much I have missed him, the old him. Knocking on the door, Niall pulled my waist closer to him. After a couple of seconds my dad came to the door.
“Who’s this?” He said analyzing Niall.
“Niall.” He tightened his grip on my waist and put out his hand.
My dad held the door open for us, ignoring Nialls hand.
“How have you been Emma?” He asked.
“Fine, no thanks to you.” I was keeping my self real distant from him until I really found out how much he’s changed.
“I’m sorry you feel that way.” He said. “But you have to understand where I was coming from, my frustration with you, I mean killing your mother is a big deal.”
My throat my dry, and my eyes filled with tears. “I did nothing.” I said.
“You know damn well what you did, Emma! How can you say you weren’t the reason she died?”
“It was a mistake! I didn’t know what I was doing! I was 12! Maybe if you were there helping her instead of a bar, she be alive!” I started screaming. Niall hugged me while I cried.
” Do you dare pin this on me Emma. Listen I don’t want to fight with you, this is not how this was supposed to go.” He said his arms in his hips. “We’ll start fresh in the morning.” He said walking his way up the stairs and into his bedroom. I just sat there as Niall tried to calm me down, but All I could do was cry.
ALL MY FAULT Chaper 18
I could smell coffee lingering through the house. I Lifted my head and Niall was no longer beside beside me. I Saw up and let out a long yawn. I headed for the upstairs living room, then started making my way to the kitchen. I could hear muffled sounds of talking and dishes clinking. Before stepping in I stopped, so I could listen.
“Why? What happened?” That was Niall.
“You should ask her yourself.” I Could hear my dad sounding snoody.
“I honestly think your exaggerating, how could she have possibly done that? There’s no way Mike.”
“You wouldn’t understand.” He stopped, “And frankly, I don’t like you very much. So I’d keep your mouth shut.”
“You promised Emma Everything would be different.” I could here the anger and frustration in Nialls voice. “I’m not going to let you hurt her again. Look it what you’ve done to your one and only daughter. I love her, but shes a mess.”
“Oh really? How, How is she a mess?” My Dad sounding angry.
“When I sleep I hear her at night, she tosses and turns, and Always wakes up scared in the middle of the night. No one can put their hand near her, without her flinching, I don’t think she realizes I have noticed. But shes so insecure and scared all the time, all because of you.” I instantly felt upset after hearing that.
“Listen kid.” My Dad interupted. “You have no right to be here. She doesn’t need you, in a few months you’ll probably be nothing to her. and she’ll be nothing to you.”
I heard a chair push in and a loud slam against the wall.
“Don’t you ever say that again. She’ll never be nothing to me! We’re leaving your stupid house you alcoholic fuck!”
I rushed into the kitchen and there Niall was with my dad pushed against the kitchen wall, by his throat.
“Emma.” Niall said and loosened his grip on my dad.
“What are you guys doing!” I said pushing Niall off my dad.
“I want this boy out of my house!” My dad yelled and stormed off to his bedroom.
“Emma, I’m so sorry, I just lost it.”
“Niall its fine.” I said back to him. I sat down at the table. “What were you two talking about?”
“You.” He said back.
“Oh.” I had no reply.
“Can I ask you something?” He sounded upset.
“Yea, of course.” He pulled out a chair and sat down.
“Ok.” He paused, I could tell that he was thinking. “Why does, your dad think you killed your mom? What happened?”
I immediately didn’t want to answer. I looked down.
“I don’t really like to talk about it.” I said.
“Please Emma. I want to help.”
I looked up into his eyes and melted away in the ocean of blue. I felt at home. I couldn’t help but tell him.
“The night she died, was really hard on both my dad and I.” I started. “My dad was depressed about her being sick, and he had been drinking a lot. He was in the bar, and I was home alone with my mom. She was on bed rest, and had a bunch of tubes connected to her. The doctor gave my dad some sort of needle type thing and taught him how to give it to her, if anything went wrong. Her heart monitor started going off, and I could tell she was dying.” I took a deep breath trying to hold back my tears.
“It’s ok babe.” Niall assured me taking my hand.
“I called the ambulance, and started rushing around trying to find the needle. When I finally found it I rushed down stairs And gave it too her, Except I put it in the wrong vein , because I wasn’t taught how to do it. So it didn’t help her.” And by the time the police got there it was already to late to do anything.” I started to cry, and Niall pulled me in closer to him. “I was brought to the hospital with her. They sat me down and talked to me. They said that even with the medicine, she probably wouldn’t have made it through the night. But I spent a long time thinking it was my fault. My dad didn’t help with that because he kept accusing me of killing her. I was only 12. I had no idea what I was doing.” I sat there staring blank. reliving all of it.
“Emma, It wasn’t even close to your fault. You were young! and you weren’t trained! It was his fault for being in the bar.” He said trying to comfort me.
“I’m not blaming anyone to be honest, It was her time, and Even if he gave her the needle she might not have made it, and if she did, who knows how long she would have had after that, a day? a week? It doesn’t matter to me anymore, I want to live in the present, not the past.” I turned My head and looked at Niall.
He leaned in and kissed me. ”C’mon babe, let’s get out of here.” He said pulling me by my hand out of the house.
But I’m lazy,
debating it. :/
