“So Niall, you’ve recently been spotted again with your ex girlfriend Christina. What’s going on there?” Alan said with a coy smile. Everyone turned to me, and I threw an awkward smile towards the audience.
I was supposed to reveal everything about Christina and Noah last week on Radio 1 but I of course chickened out.
But we were at an Alan Carr interview now, and I decided it was finally time. The lads and I have a bond with Alan so I knew it would be the best to spill everything here.
“Um yeah. We are… Yeah were back together.” I admitted shyly.
“Well, Well. Straight from the horses mouth eh?” Everyone including Alan and the lads began laughing.
“Were all quite excited actually. We love Christina.” Harry said throwing an arm around me.
“How lovely, how lovely!”
Alan was about to say something else so I knew I needed to spit it out.
“That’s not all that has happened with Christina and I actually…”
I began getting a tight feeling in the pit of my stomach. Harry’s arm tightened around me encouraging me to speak.
“Something else juicy? Come on, spit it out!” Alan laughed.
“We actually uhm, have a son.”
Whispers and ‘oh my god’s began filling the room. Even Alan wasn’t sure how to go on based on his facial expression.
“Yeah, we were all a bit shocked when we first found out, but Niall and Christina are great parents.” Zayn said trying to calm the situation.
“And little Noah is just about the Cutest thing in the world!” Louis said with a grin.
‘AWWWWS’ filled the room.
“Well I bet. Handsome Niall, and then beautiful Christina. That child must be gorgeous. How old is little Noah?” Alan asked looking more calm.
“He turned three last week actually.” I said nodding my head. “We had a little party at the house with all the lads, and our families. It was nice.”
“Well isn’t that adorable. Any other crazy stuff been going on in One Direction that we don’t know about huh? Has anyone gotten married yet?” Alan said laughing.
The audience began laughing at his joke.
The lads and I just shook our heads and laughed as well.
Alan then turned towards the camera, “Well there you have it everyone. A new One Direction secret revealed! When we get back the boys will be performing their brand new single!”
3 hours later…
“Hello, anyone here?” I said walking in to Christina and I’s house.
Christina then peeped her head out the kitchen door.
“Hi…” I whispered.
She smiled and then ran over into my arms. “I can’t believe you finally did it. I’m so proud of you!” She kissed me on the cheek, and then hugged me even tighter.
“I’ve never been so nervous in my life, but now everyone knows, and I hope everything turns out fine.”
Christina gave me a worried look and then buried her face in the nook of my neck.
“Where is Noah actually?”
“He’s asleep. It’s been a tiring day. I just got home an hour ago from work.”
I brushed the side of her face, and she smiled. She looked so tired.
“How does a relaxing bubble bath sound?” I said raising my eye brows.
A huge grin appeared on her face. “Just perfect! Race you!” She planted a kiss on my cheek and began running towards the stairs.
“I can’t believe Niall actually is a father now.”
“She isn’t even pretty! Have babies with me Niall?”
“She probably got pregnant on purpose! #whore”
I normally got sweet tweets in my mentions, and the rude ones… Well I just didn’t reply to those. They usually didn’t bother me.
I don’t know what it was though. I had been scrolling through my mentions and it was just one hateful tweet after another. Of course there were many nice ones, but still.
In the past 3 years since Niall and I had broken up I’d mostly gotten tweets saying they missed me, how Niall and I were perfect together, and those didn’t bother me much.
But these were so mean. And why would I get pregnant on purpose? It’s not really ideal to get pregnant at 19!
The fresh warm tears were rolling down my cheeks.
“What’s the matter?” Harry said running through my door.
“Nothing. Really I’m fine.” I shoved my phone underneath the nearest pillow I could find hoping harry wouldn’t notice.
But of course he did. He grabbed my phone from underneath the pillow, and by the time I could snatch the phone away he had already read atleast five of my mentions.
“Don’t listen to them. They’re just jealous!” Harry wrapped his arms around me, and pressed his lips to my forehead. “They only say hateful things like that because they wish they were you!”
I knew Harry was right, but I couldn’t help continuously crying. I knew the truth, and that’s all that should matter, but I couldn’t help how I felt.
“Now stop crying, and let’s go to the park like we planned alright?” He wiped the last of my tears away, and pulled me by my wrists.
“Okay…” I whispered as a loud noise made its way upstairs.
“I’m gonna get you!” Niall yelled chasing after Noah, but before Noah could make his way to Harry and I, Niall caught him by the shirt.
“You little monster you!” Niall said tickling Noah’s tummy.
“Come on. Let’s go to the park already! I have a surprise for Christina there waiting.” Harry said sounding kind of annoyed.
“You know I don’t like surprises harry!” I said squinting my eyes.
“Well get over it. You’re gonna like this one!” Harry grabbed Noah from Niall’s arms, and threw him over his shoulder.
Niall turned, and really looked at me for the first time. “Hey, have you been crying?” He walked towards me, and wrapped me in his arms.
I could tell him everything. How the fans really had hurt my feelings this time. How I wasn’t so sure if going public about Noah and I was a good thing. But I didn’t. I would get over this, and so would the fans. Everyone just needed time.
“Me? What, no! I yawned really big. That’s all.” I kissed Niall on the cheek. “Come on! I’m dying to get cute photos of Noah feeding the ducks for the first time!” Niall smiled hugely, grabbed me by my hand, and began pulling me towards the door.
*HOLLLAHHH. I’M BACK! So busy you guys! My personal life has been pretty damn crazy! But i have finished the last few chapters of this fanfic(yes it’s ending) and am going to be posting them all by sunday. One by One(: This Chapter is Short, but i will be posting the next one tomorrow around this time. xxxxxxxx
“Please tell me that’s the last box?” Harry moaned dropping a large box in the living room of Niall and I’ s new house.
“Yeah, it should be. But Louis is in Noah’s room right now trying to set up his bed. He might need help?” Harry had an annoyed look on his face. Quite funny actually.
“Well I mean if you don’t want to its fine.”
“No I just have to get back home soon because I have a Skype date with Steph in a bit.” I rolled my eyes.
“Oh well in that case get out of here.” I said shoving him towards the front door. He gave me a playful smile and then left.
I walked in to the kitchen to find Danielle and Eleanor putting up paintings, and putting bowls/plates and silverware where they belonged. The kitchen was actually looking pretty nice, and the girls were decorating it beautifully.
Then I realized Noah was nowhere in site. “Didn’t I leave Noah with you two?” I said looking around frantically.
“Calm it girl.” Eleanor said smiling. “Niall came and snatched him away from us. I think they are in the backyard.”
“Yeah, Niall said he wanted to show Noah the fish in the pond out back.” Danielle replied while putting coffee mugs in a cabinet.
“Oh thanks!” I smiled and walked towards the back door.
After deciding I was moving back to London for Niall, and the internship Niall decided to sell the flat. He bought us a home. It was small and cute. Niall knew I wasn’t one of those girls who wanted some extravagant house. He bought us a two story Victorian themed house in London. It was big enough to raise Noah, and small enough that I wouldn’t complain.
It had been 2 months since I moved back to London. We started moving about a week ago, and now with the help of everyone we were pretty much all settled officially.
Everything was getting back to normal with me and Niall, surprisingly. After being separated for three years everything was okay again. It felt like no time had passed. However, time did pass, and things did change.
Now we had Noah in the mix. I loved Niall so much, but I loved Noah more. All that I’m doing is for him, and I just pray that this all works out.
I came to the window that over looked the backyard. Noah was bent down with part of his hand in the pond, and Niall beside him. They both had the same huge grin on their faces.
Sometimes I looked at Noah in disbelief that he was even mine, that I brought him into this world. Then I looked at Niall and couldn’t believe that we made him. I still can’t believe that I’m such a young mother, but in a way I’m glad I am. I don’t know what I would do without that little boy.
I stepped outside and they both looked at me. Noah’s face lit up.
“Momma! Wook at tha fish!” I walked over and bent down next to him.
“How beautiful” I ran my fingers through his hair. Something I used to always do to Niall, and picked up the habit of doing to Noah. Niall noticed, and pulled me towards him. He kissed me on the cheek, and then pulled me further so now I was sitting on his lap.
Noah was still kneeling in front of us looking at all the different fish. I looked around to take in the backyard. My new home.
“What are you thinking?” Niall whispered in my ear.
Instead of getting all sappy I pulled a random thought out of my head. “Oh just you know… Maybe we should get a trampoline back here.”
“That’s a brilliant idea! Noah would love it!” He rubbed my arm then kissed me sweetly on the neck. “What time is your mums flight coming in tomorrow again?”
“Three thirty ish. What about yours?” Noah was now trying to actually touch the fish.
“I think noon time actually.”
I turned around so now I was only looking at him. “Our moms meeting for the first time. Think it’ll be weird?”
“I think my mum is going to love your mum as much as she loves you.” I kissed him on the lips.
“I’m so excited for them to see the house, and I miss your mom insanely. It’s only been two weeks since the last time I saw her, but it feels like forever!” I said with a smile, and turning back to watch Noah.
“I’m completely the luckiest lad on earth to have a girl that my mum loves.” He wrapped his arms tighter around my waist.
I snatched up Noah so now he was sitting on my lap. “Are you excited to see your Nan tomorrow?” I said tickling him.
“Yes mommy!” He said laughing, and squirming.
“And don’t forget Nonna is also coming!” Niall said smiling.
“Can’t believe my little monster is turning three years old already!” I started tickling him more, and he was laughing so hard that tears were streaming down his face.
Noah in my arms giggling. Niall having me in his arms. It felt like we were finally a little family. It felt so incredibly nice.
The Next Day...
“Hey everyone!” My mom yelled as we walked through the door.
I had gone to pick her up at the airport while Niall and Noah stayed behind because Maura had already arrived.
“Hey Francine, this is my mum Maura.” Niall said hugging my mom and then gesturing towards his mom.
They didn’t even shake hands. They just grabbed each other and pulled into a tight hug. “I’m so glad were finally meeting.” Maura whispered.
“Me as well.” Niall and I kinda just gave each other ‘What The Hell’ looks.
Clearly they noticed because they turned to us and in unison said, “What?”
“It just, its your first time meeting. We thought it would be awkward?” Niall admitted.
“We share the most beautiful grandson, no way that it could be awkward!” Maura said loudly.
They so adorable standing next to each other. Then when Noah ran into their arms i literally wanted to die of cuteness.
We helped them both settle into their guest bedrooms, and gave them a tour of the entire house. They left with Noah to buy party supplies, and to get to know each other.
“I hope my mom comes out here more often. Not just birthday parties you know? I don’t like being so far away from her.” I said lying on the couch with Niall. We had finished watching a movie, and were just talking now.
“I hope so too. I kinda wished we all lived near one another, but…” I ran my hands through his hair for the first time in 3 years.
“It’s okay.” I said pulling him closer so now my arms were wrapped around his shoulders, and his head was pressed to my neck.
We kinda just lyed there. Saying nothing. It felt nice actually. It was the first time that we had been alone together in quite some time. I was beginning to drift off to sleep when Niall finally spoke again.
“You know how we have that Radio 1 event this weekend?”
“Yeah, what about it?”
“Well everyone knows we are back together. I was thinking maybe I could officially tell them about Noah…” I turned so i was looking at him.
“Oh uhm…” I didn’t really know what to say. Niall and I kept our private lives out of the media usually.
Back when we were together last time the paparazzi rarely ever got photos of us. Everyone knew about our relationship, but we were always secretive about it. Most of the fans even supported it. They all liked that I was just a normal girl and fan. Some were mean of course, but I just didn’t respond to those tweets.
“If you’re okay with it?” He said with a confused look.
“Sure…” I trailed off. I knew we couldn’t hide Noah from everyone forever, but I just wasn’t sure how the media and fans would take to Niall being a dad. “To be quite honest, i’m surprised no one has figured everything out yet.” I said smiling and trying to change the mood.
Apparently, it worked. He pulled me close to him, “We’re just so good at keeping secrets i guess”.
*MEH i’ve been writing parts of this all week. Sorry if it sucks. I don’t know where i’m going with this fanfic right now. I think i’m gonna take a break. So i think this will be the last chapter for awhile. okay then(: tooodaloo xx
“You wook bootiful momma” I looked down to see Noah staring up at me. My hair was thickly curled. I was wearing a fitted white cocktail dress that was strapless and paired with red heels.
I kneeled down to make sure his pants and shirt weren’t wrinkled. “Oh no one will be looking at me when you walk in Mr. Cutie .” I said tickling his stomach. He started smiling that cute smile I loved.
“Oh I’m pretty sure everyone will be looking at you Ms. Hottie!” I turned around to see my best friend Stephanie staring at me in the door way.
When I moved back to LA, I met her at a bookstore. I was applying for work, and she was already working there. At first she said that they weren’t hiring, but when I told her I absolutely needed a job because I was pregnant she convinced her boss. Well now our boss. We have been really good friends ever since. She’s practically another aunt to Noah.
“Well you look nice as well. Trying to impress anyone? Like I don’t know… Harry?” I asked laughing at her. Her dress was even more fitted to her body than mine was, and it was clear she was wearing a push up bra. She looked gorgeous though. Her dress was red, and backless with creme colored pumps.
“Maybe I am? We did have a nice time together the other day at the farmers market…” My eyes buldged out.
“Oh gosh, what happened!” I said standing up with Noah in my arms.
She smiled devilishly. “Well I’m not really a girl that kisses and tells… Woops!” She started giggling. I rolled my eyes at her.
“What am I gonna do with you?” I said laughing and walking towards the door.
We grabbed our purses, and started heading downstairs.
“Are you guys trying to make the bride look terrible?” Lily shouted at us.
“Oh you’re just jealous you don’t look as good as us Lil!” Stephanie yelled, and started laughing.
After being married last year Lily and Jacob were now expecting twins! Needless to say, Lily was 7 months pregnant, and bigger than a house.
“Yeah, I guess I am jealous. Well let’s go. Mom has been expecting us for atleast 30 minutes already!”
“What she really means is that she’s extremely hungry…” Jacob said quietly laughing. Thankfully Lily was already out the front door and walking towards the car.
We all followed, and I finally realized that tonight I was going to tell Niall my decision, and I hoped that everything would work out. This decision will not only effect me, but Noah, Niall, and everyone else in my life.
20 minutes later…
After a bit of traffic we were finally at the rehearsal dinner. It was an old fashioned Italian restaurant that my mom enjoyed going to often. Except this time Jim had the entire place closed down for our event.
“Christina, you’re shaking.” Steph said watching me undo the buckle to Noah’s car seat.
“I’m just nervous alright. I promised Niall i would tell him everything tonight.” I finally managed to undo the seat buckle, and grabbed Noah out of his car seat.
“Look no matter what your decision is, or how he reacts everything will work out okay? By the way, have you decided on New York or London yet?”
I couldn’t even manage to answer. I just shook my head. My plan was to tell Niall about the internship, and based on his reaction to it all I would decide right then.
“Hello? Oh hi Harry!” Steph said answering her phone, and with a big grin. Dear Lord, i don’t even wanna know what’s going on with these two right now. I have enough on my plate.
“Yeah, we just pulled up. We’ll be in right now. Bye!” She put her phone away in her pocket.
“The boys are already here?” I said to Steph.
“Yeah! We better get in there quick actually. Apparently they’re sitting at the same table as your mom and Jim. Could be awkward for Niall you know…” Oh damn, i didn’t even tell my mom i invited everyone tonight. She’s going to kill me. After everything that happened with Niall, he wasn’t exactly her favorite person in the world.
“CHRISTINA!” My mom yelled standing up from the table, and walking over towards me. Each table was rather large at this restaurant so seated at my mom’s table was Niall, Harry, Louis, Eleanor, Danielle, Liam, Zayn, and Kelley. Surprisingly though they all looked cheerful though. Well… Except my mom.
“Hey mom, sorry we’re late. There was traffic.” I kissed her on the cheek. She smiled quickly, and then moved towards Lily.
Niall’s eyes were locked on mine, and he was looking quite serious compared to his normal self. I walked over with Noah in my arms. It was weird seeing everyone.
“Hey guys! Long time no see?” I said awkwardly.
“Get over here and give us a hug!” Kelley shouted with a smile over face.
I hugged them all one by one, and it felt so nice. Going from always double dating, and hanging out with them to never seeing them was so weird.
“Christina, can i hold Noah? He is just so adorable!” Eleanor said smiling and reaching for him.
“Sure, of course.” I sat Noah down on Eleanor’s lap, while Kelley and Danielle switched seats with the boys so now they were all taking turns holding him, and making funny faces with him. He was eventually passed around the entire table. Even the boys took turns holding him.
I walked towards Niall, who was now standing up waiting for me.
“Uh hey…” I said awkwardly smiling, and just standing there.
“Hey love.” Niall grabbed me by my waist, and kissed me on my cheek. I could see in my peripheral vision that everyone was staring. Literally, everyone! Not just the people at our table, but all of the guests. At first i didn’t care, but then i looked over to see my mom with an unpleasant look.
Niall followed my stare. “She’s not too happy with me is she?” I turned back to Niall and he had a sad look on his face.
“Well, i mean everything that happened… you can’t really blame her can you?”
“Since the moment we all got here she has been giving me that same stare. I was waiting for you to get here before i really talked to her. Want to go get it over with?” Niall said raising his eyebrows.
“Afterwards. Can we go outside, and talk first?”
“Oh yeah, you have something to tell me?” He said smiling, and pulling me by my hand to the front door. We were about to walk out when my mom stepped in front of us.
“Where are you going?” She said with a stern look on her face. I don’t think i’ve ever seen my mom look so serious, except of course when i told her i was pregnant for the first time.
“Just to the front to talk ma, okay?” I said rolling my eyes.
“Don’t be disrespectful, and roll your eyes at me Christina Niccola. You hear me? Lo ho aiutato mólto durante gli ultimi tre anni, quando lui wasn’ t persino là per voi.”( I have helped you a lot in the past three years, when he wasn’t even there for you) She said loudly pointing at Niall. Thankfully no one heard her.
“Alright, alright. I’m sorry. You don’t have to yell at me in Italian!” I hated when she did that. It just showed how angry she was, and i didn’t like when my mom was mad at me.
“Look i’m sorry if me being here bothers you. If you want i will leave.” Niall said softly locking eyes with my mom.
“You aren’t going anywhere Niall.” I said quickly. “I’m sorry i didn’t warn you that i invited him mom, but i told you he was in town. I guess i just figured you would know. I’m sorry, okay?”
“Don’t be mat at her, because i know who you’re really angry at is me, Francine.” My mom and i both shifted our eyes to Niall. “If i could take everything back i would. I wish i could’ve been there for Noah the past 3 years… but i’m not a time traveler. I’m here now though, and i’m going to try and be the best dad i can be!” A smile appeared on my face. It was nice hearing Niall talk about Noah like that. All i want is for Noah to have a family. The only thing that was ever missing was his Father.
Surprisingly, i wasn’t the only one smiling. My mom had a smirk, and a tear started rolling down her face. She put her arms out, and Niall hugged her. “I always liked you Niall…” She whispered while hugging him tightly. “I was just nervous that you would come and shatter everything i’ve built for Noah and Christina. You have no idea how much that little boy means to me.” She pulled away finally, and Niall wiped the tears off of her cheek.
“Trust me, i’m starting to feel the same way about him. I promise you i will never do anything to hurt either one of them, again. I promise you, Francine.” My mom flashed a huge smile, and then grabbed Niall by the sides of his face.
“Good!” She squeezed his cheeks, and then kissed him on the forehead. “Now go talk about whatever it is you need to talk about, and get back in here.” She pushed Niall and I gently towards the door.
“Oh thank god, that is all over.” I said wiping my forehead dramatically, and grabbing Niall’s hand.
“Yeahh.. Now you just have to tell me your news!” He said smirking, and pulling me outside. Shit. I forgot about that.
“Whatever it is you can tell me! You know that.” Christina and I were now sitting on the bench in front of the restaurant. She looked so cute when she was nervous though, especially tonight. This was the first time i’d seen her dress like this. Well, besides that one New Years…
“Okay. I’m just gonna blurt it out! Not even going to think about it.” She took a deep breath, and then continued. “Okay, well you know how i just finished the Vet Tech program?”
“Okay, well normal people just get like a degree or whatever, and then go on working somewhere. Well not me…” She shifted closer to me. “Because i got such good grades, i graduated with honors… and uh… Well they offered me a paid internship at a zoo.”
“A specific zoo or?” I said trying to act confused.
“Well i have two different locations that i can choose from. New York or… or London.” She was looking at the ground so i couldn’t read her facial expression.
I lifted her chin up. “How long til you have to decide?” She lowered her eyes again.
“Well let’s see how everything goes for the next week. I hope you pick London. I want you and Noah to come live with me, and we can finally have a shot at being a family. Ultimately, it’s up to you babe.” I whispered stroking the side of her face.
“I want us to try, and be a family too. It’s just… Taking care of Noah is a lot of work. Everyone here helps me, and if i move back to London then i won’t have them. You’ll be busy with the band, and i just don’t know…”
“It will be tough, but we should atleast give it a go, and i mean… if you go to New York then you’ll really have no one to help with Noah.” I said raising my eyebrows.
“Yeah well i’ve had the past few months to think about it, and this was before you came back in to the picture. No matter where i was going there would be no one to help. Guess i was just using that as an excuse.”
I stood up grabbing her hand, and pulling her up with me. I wrapped my arms around her waist, and kissed her on the lips. “I think if you came to London we could really make it work. On holidays we can come and visit your mum. We could even go visit my mum… She practically beat me when i broke up with you.” I admitted looking down. Now she was the one lifting my chin up.
“I think it’s time she met her grandson actually…”
“So does that mean?” I asked with a confused look on my face.
“As long as you promise me that you aren’t gonna go crazy on me again… Well then i think i just have to move back to London!” She said smiling, and wrapping her arms around my neck. “I’ve missed your mom. I have contemplated calling her for the last 3 years letting her know about Noah, but for some reason i could never do it.”
“Well looks like we’ll be doing it together now.” I pulled her in to a tight hug, and it felt so nice to have her back in my arms. For good this time.
*Sorry if i’m late. Kinda procrastinated all day! But here is another Chapter. Not normally as long as my usual ones, but hopefully i’ll get back in to them. I’ve been having writers block. Hence, why i’ve been taking so long to update! But if you guys could give me some ideas in my askbox on my other blog… WELL THAT WOULD BE LOVELY. Thanks guys! xx
Niall and I slowly walked down the stairs, and towards the living room. My mom still wasn’t home thank god.
“Harry?” I said walking in to find Harry and Noah passed out on the couch, with the ending credits to a movie rolling down the tv screen.
As soon as I said his name is his eyes shot open, and a goofy grin appeared on his face when he saw Niall and I.
“Oh hey you two.” He whispered winking. He was about to say something else, but then Noah rolled over, and I knew I needed to put him in bed.
I walked over, and picked his little body up in my arms. “I’m going to put him in his bed real quick.”
“Actually, can I?” Niall asked softly and smiling.
“Sure.” I handed Noah to Niall, and Niall began walking back up the stairs.
I sat down next to Harry who was now stretching. “Sooo….” Harry nudged my arm with his elbow, and smiled.
“Did you guys… You know?” This was so embarrassing.
“Oh gosh, shut up Hazza!” I said pushing him away.
“You guys were gone for two hours! How could I not ask? I hope you guys were safe this time, and didn’t make a second Noah. I mean I love Noah to death, but I don’t think you could handle another kid.” I rolled my eyes.
“Well thanks Harry! But of course we were safe. We were careless once. It’s not going to happen again.”
I got up from the couch, and began walking to the kitchen. Harry followed.
I set Noah down on his miniture bed that was in Christina’s room. I tucked him under the covers, and kissed him on the cheek. A smile formed on his face, just like Christina whenever I kissed her on the cheek in her sleep.
He may look just like me, but his facial expressions were all Christina.
I walked down the stairs, and headed to the living room. It was empty, but then I heard whispers coming from the kitchen.
“Well, what are you going to do now? Are you guys officially back together?”
“I don’t know harry!” Christina whispered fiercely.
“Well do you love him still?”
“That is the dumbest question you have ever asked me Harry. I have been in love with him since before I even met him!”
“Well if that’s true than I say you come back to London with us in two weeks after our vacation has finished. We all miss you!”
“It’s not that simple though, Harry. My mom and Jim have helped me raise Noah for the past three years. They have done so much, and we have a life here. I just finished school, and-“
Christina stopped immediately, and I heard her shift in the kitchen. She was putting the dishes away or something.
“Come here you. It’ll be alright. You and Niall will figure something out. I’m positive.” I could hear Harry wrapping his arms around Christina.
“That’s what you said last time, and look what happened!”
“I can’t believe its already been 3 years…”
“I have to tell you something Harry… but you can’t say anything!”
I moved closer to the door so I could hear better.
“Oh god, you’re not pregnant again are you?”
“What! NO!” Oh thank god. “It’s… I’ve been offered an internship with the vet tech program…”
“Yeah…” Harry whispered.
“Well they gave me two different zoos to choose from… One in New York and one in… London.”
“WHAT? You have to choose the one in London! That would be perfect!” I could practically hear Harry smiling.
“It’s not that simple. I’ve had two months to make this decision, and I was obviously avoiding choosing London because of Niall. I’ve had my sights on New York, and now everything is changing.”
I finally decided i was done snooping, and walked into the kitchen to find Christina in tears with a confused look.
“-Oh Niall!” She practically jumped.
“Is everything okay?” I said stepping closer, and grabbing her hand.
“Uhm yeah… No. Look its just been a long day. I have a lot of stuff to do in the morning. Why don’t you guys come to the rehearsal dinner tomorrow night? Bring everyone and we can all catch up, yeh?” Christina stepped away from Harry, but she didn’t step closer to me either.
“Yeah, we will be there.” Harry rubbed her back, and then made his way to the door giving us alone time.
I took advantage and walked over to her. I wrapped my arms around her waist, and then wiped one of the tears from her cheeks.
“Are you sure you’re okay?” I kissed her on the cheek, and she looked up at me.
“We didn’t work last time because we were keeping secrets from each other. I want to be honest with you. Always.”
“Of course. Tell me anything. Really.”
“I’m still freaking out about it. Is it okay if I tell you everything tomorrow?” She looked so worried. Like I was going to demand her tell me now.
“That’s fine. When you’re ready, I will be waiting okay?” I kissed her on the lips for a little bit, and then pulled away.
“I’ll see you tomorrow… princess.” I smiled, and left. I really hoped that when she told me everything tomorrow, that she would be saying she was choosing London for her internship.
*SORRY IF IT’S SHORT. I’M GOING TO WRITE ANOTHER CHAPTER TONIGHT BECAUSE I DON’T HAVE CLASS TOMORROW. AND IT SHOULD BE OUT TOMORROW NIGHT. I’LL TRY TO MAKE IT LONG. LOVE YOU GUYS! xx PS SORRY IF THERE ARE A LOT OF MISTAKES. I’M AT SCHOOL SO I DIDN’T HAVE TIME TO PROOF READ.
-1 month later-
I never thought I would find myself in this situation. Atleast not for another couple years. Niall and I are both so young, the fact that I might possibly be pregnant is so unreal.
I realized my period was late a couple days ago, but I couldn’t bring myself to accept it. I didn’t want to be pregnant. Who wants to be pregnant at 19? Especially when their boyfriend is about to go on a world tour, and would be gone off and on for a good 6 months.
I was walking to the cash register to pay for the 3 pregnancy tests I was buying. You can never be too sure ya know? Why not buy a couple just to be safe?
As I was paying for the tests someone walked into the drug store, and there were camera flashes from paparazzi following the celebrity. I looked up to see a curly headed boy. Oh no, it was Harry…
I was trying to take a normal walk. Just trying to get some fresh air, and of course the paparazzi managed to find me. I ran into the nearest store I could find. I looked to my left and saw Christina’s eyes locked on mine. She looked scared?
I walked over towards her. “What are you doing here?” She was still frozen.
“Excuse me mam, that’s thirty-two fifty. You’re holding up the line!”
“Sorry, here. Keep the change.” She handed the cashier a fifty and then walked away fastly. She didn’t even grab her bag, so I grabbed it, and then ran after her.
“Are you okay?” I said standing in front of her, and looking down. She wouldn’t look at me though.
“Yeah, I’m fine. I just needed to get something. I actually have to go.” She turned and started walking away from me. I swiftly grabbed her by the arm, and she finally looked up at me.
“I know when something is wrong with you.” She didn’t say anything, but then she realized I had her bag in my hand.
“Give me that Harry!” She yelled trying to snatch the bag, but I had pulled away. Since the bag was plastic, and we pulled it from both sides it ripped open. Three little boxes fell on the floor, and I bent down to pick them up.
As I was picking them up I realized what they were. “Pregnancy tests?” I almost shouted. She looked at me with tears in her eyes. “You’re pregnant? Does Niall know?! How did this happen! WEREN’T YOU GUYS SAFE? I can’t believe-“
“Just shut up okay. Paparazzi are swarming this place right now! Stuff these in your pocket, and let’s go to my car. I’ll tell you everything when we get to the flat!” I did as I was told, and then we made a break for the car. So many paparazzi were here. I understand now why she was freaking out.
-20 minutes later-
Christina opened the bathroom door. “Alright, I peed on all of them. The box says we have to wait 3 minutes, and then they’ll be ready.”
I looked at her. “Are you nervous?”
“Of course I am. This is a life changing thing Hazz!” She sat down next to me on the bed, and leaned her head on my shoulder.
When we first got to her and Niall’s flat she unloaded everything on me. Apparently, she has been late for about a week now, but she hadn’t told anyone. Especially Niall. He didn’t know anything about any of this, and she was dreading telling him. The tour was starting at the end of the week. This couldn’t have happened at a worse time.
“Yeah, I know obviously. That’s why condoms were invented dummy!” I smacked her playfully on the leg.
“New years man. We were drunk, and I don’t even remember most of the night. I’m pretty sure that’s when it happened, because every other time Niall and I have always been safe.”
“What are you going to do if you are pregnant? Seriously though.” I turned my head to look at her. She looked so young when she had her hair up in a ponytail like that. She’s just too young to be a mother.
“Honestly Harry-” ring ring The timer started going off. The 3 minutes were up, and it was time for Christina to face everything.
“I’m so scared Harry.” I said standing up.
“It’s okay babe, I’m here for you. Whatever the tests say, I’m here. I promise.” Harry stood up, and grabbed my hand. We slowly walked over to the bathroom, and I picked up the first pregnancy test.
“This ones positive…” Harry and I both made the same terrified facial expression. Harry could sense that I was about to break down so he picked up the next one.
I looked at Harry, and after he checked the second test he looked down at me with sad eyes. “This ones positive too…”
Without even letting Harry’s words hit me I grabbed the last stick.
“Positive… fuck.” I slid down to the floor. I started weeping, and Harry just held me in his arms.
We just sat there on the floor for a good hour. Thankfully Niall was stuck at a taping for this radio takeover he was doing. I didn’t have to worry about him coming home for awhile.
“I know you guys are young, but everything will turn out okay. You and Niall will be cute parents. Young… but cute?” I looked up at Harry with confusing eyes.
“No. No. No.” I yelled standing up. I began pacing back in fourth.
“Don’t freak out. You’ll figure things out.” Harry stood up, and tried to sound casual.
“I don’t have to have this baby though. Were so young. Niall doesn’t need to deal with this right now. I can just get rid of it.” I was still pacing in the room, and was deep in thought. Then I felt two arms grip me by the elbows.
“Christina, you can’t just get rid of the baby without telling Niall. That’s not fair!” Harry had anger all over his face. I knocked his hands off of my arms.
“IT’S MY BODY. IT’S MY CHOICE. You can’t tell me what to do.” Who did Harry think he was? This was my decision.
“Christina, if you don’t tell Niall then I will.” I looked up at him. I was just so mad. I pushed him into the wall.
“I thought you were my friend?” More tears started rolling down my cheeks.
Harry walked towards me. “I am! That’s why I’m doing this. I know It’s your body and your choice, but Niall is the father. He has a right to know, and right to be a part of the decision making process.”
“The tour is about to start though. I can’t just shove all this on his already full plate.”
“The timing isn’t ideal… but you just have to. You should probably tell him before the surprise party for you and Kelley on Saturday.”
“Crap. It’s this weekend huh?”
“Wait, you and Kelley know? I’m not ruining the surprise?”
I laughed looking up at him. “We’ve known since ya’ll first started planning it. Were not dumb.”
“Everyone has been sneaking around for weeks! Well I won’t tell them you know so just act really surprised okay?”
“I’ll put on my best surprised face.”
“Good. I think I better head out though. Niall should be home soon, and I’m hoping you will tell him right away.” Harry stood up, and pulled me to my feet.
“I will tell him when I tell him. Butt out Styles!” I started laughing, but Harry didn’t follow in my laughter. He just hugged me tightly, and then started to walk out my door
“Wait, Harry?” Harry turned around to look at me.
“Can you throw the tests in the big trash can on the way out?” He started laughing.
“Sure lazy bum.” He grabbed the tests and then walked down the stairs. I heard him go into the kitchen, but as I heard his footsteps travel out of the kitchen I heard the front door open unexpectedly.
“Oh uh hi Harry.”
“Hey, Niall. I was just leaving.”
I walked fastly down stairs to see them awkwardly standing in front of each other. Niall noticed me.
“Hey babe. I ran into Harry at the grocery store, so we were just hanging out for a bit.”
“Oh okay? Cool.”
“Well see you guys later then.” Harry patted Niall on the arm, and then walked out the door, but when he was closing the door he gave me a funny look.
Such a long day at the radio station. I was just happy to be home finally! I was caught off guard though when I saw Harry in our flat. I know I was supposed to be trusting of Christina and Harry, but just the way they were acting seemed funny.
Christina popped her head out of the kitchen. “Aren’t you going to come in here?” She walked over and kissed me on the cheek, and then turned around to go back to the kitchen pulling me by the hand. I didn’t realize I was still standing in the hallway.
“So what were you and Harry up to today?” I tried to ask casually when we walked into the kitchen
“Oh uhm. You know… Just catching up before you guys go on tour is all.” Her back was turned to me so I wrapped my arms around her waist, but she pulled away.
Something was up with her these days. I’m pretty sure she was on her period, but still. She has never acted so distant. I turned her around so she was facing me, and I wrapped my arms around her again. I started kissing her neck, but then she slid out of my arms.
“Sorry, I’m just not in the mood.” She gave me a weak smile.
“Is everything okay babe? Is it the time of the month or?”
“Umm yeah. It is. Just not feeling well you know.” I started rubbing her back, but then she walked and sat down at the table.
“I’m going to go upstairs and change real quick. I’ll be down in a bit.” I walked out of the kitchen and upstairs.
What was up with her? It couldn’t have been just her period. She was acting so weird.
I changed into a comfortable pair of pajamas, and then realized I had to go to the bathroom as well. I was having a wee, and then I flushed the toilet. When I went to flush though I saw a weird box in the mini trash can.
I bent down, and picked it up. It was so crumpled that it was hard to read. I finally started making out the words though. “Pregnancy test?” My eyes buldged out of my head, and I kneeled to the ground.
This is why she is acting so weird? She thinks she might be pregnant? Why wouldn’t she tell me though? And obviously Harry knows . That’s why he was here. How could she tell Harry and not me?
Could Christina really be pregnant? We have always been safe. I was trying to remember a time that we weren’t safe, but then it hit me. “New years”.
“You guys are so sweet! I can’t believe you did this for us!” Christina shouted over the music. Her and Kelley had just walked in, and we all had shouted a loud ‘Happy Birthday’ . They were holding hands, and hugging each other, but now they were taking turns hugging everyone else.
“This is the sweetest thing ever, babe.” Christina kissed me on the lips quickly, but then turned away from me. She still hadn’t said anything about her pregnancy scare.
I kept telling myself the reason she wasn’t telling me anything was because she wasn’t pregnant, but she was still acting weird. So I figured something was still going on.
“Okay Okay! We all need to toast to mine and Christina’s birthday!” Kelley yelled pouring us all a round of shots. I looked at Christina, and she looked scared.
Kelley pushed a full shot glass in front of Christina, and Christina shifted her eyes to Harry. He was already staring at her.
“Everyone raise their glasses! To me finally turning 18, and this oldy Christina. Twenty already!” Everyone clacked their glasses, and began chugging. Christina just stood there frozen though.
After Harry finished his shot, he looked at Christina and grabbed her shot glass. He tossed it back hoping no one noticed, but everyone did.
“What the hell Harry? You can’t steal the birthday girl’s shot! That’s it I’m pouring another one for her.” Kelley was about to start pouring, but Christina grabbed her hand.
“I’m not drinking tonight. Just not in the mood.”
Everyone from our little group started ‘Booing’ and yelling ‘Don’t be lame’ .
I put my hand on her waist. “Come on babe. It’s your birthday! Have a little fun. Pour the glass Kel.” She looked at me with worried eyes.
“No I can’t Niall. I just… can’t . Okay?” She looked over to Harry and they both look frightened as hell.
“What are you pregnant or something?” Louis shouted while laughing. Everyone went silent, and shifted their eyes to Christina. Then they turned to me.
I looked at her, and she was turning the brightest of red.
“Just tell him already Christina.” Harry shouted.
“Niall, I’m… I’m…” She couldn’t finish her sentence.
I couldn’t hold my anger in anymore. “I can’t believe this is what its taking for you to finally tell me!” Her eyes darted up to me.
“You know?” She whispered.
“I found the wrapper in the trash bin, in the bathroom. I’ve been waiting for you to tell me for days! YOU TELL HARRY BEFORE ME?”
“Woah, mate. Calm down.” Liam walked over, and grabbed me by the arm.
“I was scared okay! I didn’t tell Harry. We ran into each other at the store, and he just found out.”
“I wanted to be the one holding your hand though! I wanted to be the one telling you everything was going to be okay!” Niall was crying now with his forhead pressed against mine.
I wrapped my arms around his neck pulling him closer. “I’m sorry okay. I was scared! The tour is so close. I didn’t want to worry you, and I wasn’t even sure if I wanted to keep it. I didn’t want to worry you for nothing. I’m so sorry.” But then Niall pulled away from me, and looked at me like I had slapped him.
“You mean… You were going to get rid of it without even telling me?” He started backing away further and further from me.
I just stood there because I didn’t know what to stay. I know I should’ve told him sooner, but its not like I can go back now.
“I’m the father, and you weren’t even going to let me help you decide were you? Were you!” Niall shouted at me walking closer, but then Harry slipped hisself in between us.
“Come on mate. She was scared, and didn’t know what to do. Don’t yell at her like that.” Niall looked up angry now. Before he could say anything Liam grabbed him, and started walking him upstairs. Zayn followed close behind.
“God, I’m so stupid.” I said sitting down at the bar.
“Don’t worry. He will come calm down, and everything will be okay.” Harry said rubbing my back. I felt so dumb.
“So you really are pregnant?” Eleanor finally said after a couple minutes. I looked up to see Louis, El, Danielle, and Kelley with the same curious eyes.
“Damn.” Was all Louis said. Everyone else just stayed quiet.
“Have you decided if you’re going to keep it yet?” I looked up, and it was Harry talking this time.
“It’s not just up to me anymore. I’ve been so selfish. Niall should be the one to decide now. I shouldn’t have shut him out like this.”
“Christina?” I turned to my right to see Zayn standing there.
I got up and walked over over to him. “What happened? Is he still mad?”
“He’s calmed down… just go talk to him alright? He’s in the guest bedroom on the third floor.” I practically ran up the stairs, and I stopped as soon as I reached the door.
I didn’t knock. I just entered.
Niall was sitting on the bed, and Liam wasn’t insight. I figured he would be in here, but he must of skipped out before I entered.
“Hey” was all I whispered. Niall didn’t even look up at me.
“What do you want?” I didn’t even bother sitting down.
“Oh so you’re going to act this way? Just not forgive me? I’m sorry! What else do you want from me?”
“I don’t want anything from you. Why don’t you just leave?” Niall said standing up and walking passed me towards the door. I blocked him so he couldn’t leave though.
“What do you mean leave?” Tears started rolling down my face.
“Just leave. Get rid of the baby. Don’t. I don’t care. Just leave.” Fine. I wasn’t wanted. I would leave.
I pushed passed him now, and reached for the door knob. “I’ll catch a flight tomorrow morning then. I guess this was nice while it lasted.”
“Don’t try and make me feel bad now. You did this. Not me!” Niall said with angry eyes.
“Maybe I did do this… and I’m sorry for that. You’re the one that pushed me away though. You’re the one that won’t let me fix this. Goodbye Niall.” I opened the door, ran down the stairs and out the front door. I was never going to turn back, and I realized finally that I would never see Niall again.
I walked out of the bedroom, and down stairs toward the bar. I grabbed a beer, and started chugging it. All I wanted was to be drunk.
“What happened? Where did Christina go?” It was Harry, and he looked angry.
“She’s probably on her way to the flat to start packing. Who cares.”
“Packing? What? Where is she going?”
“Back to LA I would imagine. Where she belongs.”
“What the hell is the matter with you? She’s pregnant with your baby!”
“Oh she is probably getting rid of it anyways. Especially now that I’m out of the picture!”
Harry didn’t even say anything back. He just walked off angry. Whatever, I could care less. I never wanted to see Christina again. I hoped I never would either…

I woke up the next morning, and Christina was still fast asleep in my arms. I figured she would be sleeping for a long time from all the alcohol she consumed, and not to mention she would be exhausted from what happened when we got home. I had never seen her so wild.
I kissed her on the cheek and slid out of bed to go to the kitchen. I grabbed a glass of water, and 4 advils. Two for me, and two for Christina. My hangover was terrible. I could only imagine how bad hers would be when she woke up. I started walking back to the bedroom, but when I opened the door Christina wasn't in bed anymore.
“Babe?” I walked through the bedroom, and turned towards our bathroom.
Christina was on the floor of the bathroom, and had her head above the toilet throwing up.
I ran over to her, and pulled the hair out of her face, then began rubbing her back. After another five minutes of Christina throwing up, she finally was finished and slumped over to the side wall. I flushed the toilet, and then handed her the two advils and glass of water which she gladly drank.
“If this is what a hangover feels like then I’m never drinking again!” She gave a weak laugh and closed her eyes.
“You still look really tired. Want to go back to bed?” She looked up at me like a little sick puppy. Even though she clearly wasn’t feeling well I couldn’t help smiling. She looked so cute.
“Why are you smiling? I look and feel terrible Niall!”
“You just look so cute right now”
“Well I don’t feel cute… In fact I need a shower. You’re getting in there with me, because I can’t even move, and I need you to wash my hair babe.”
“Oh I’m not complaining about that, but after can we go back to sleep? I’m still really tired.” I said standing up, and pulling her up with my hands.
-Christina(the next day)-
“Niall, how could we forget? That’s it. I’m never drinking alcohol again!” Niall walked over and rubbed the side of my arm that wasn’t being used to curl my hair.
“Don’t worry. Don’t worry. We have 3 hours before our flight. You’re almost ready right?”
“Well almost, but now that I’m being rushed I’m not going to feel cute, and I want to look nice when I meet your family for the first time!” Last curl. Done. Thank god. I just needed to put on some mascara, and then put my clothes on.
“Don’t worry, you’re beautiful. My family will love you, especially my mum. I know that’s what you’re mostly worried about.” He kissed me on the cheek softly.
“You promise?” I did my best puppy dog face.
“Oh especially with that cute face!” Niall wrapped his arms around me and started pecking cute kisses all over my face.
“Okay, I have to finish getting ready now!” I kissed him on the lips and then pushed him away. “Go finish packing!” Niall scrunched his face in disapproval, but left the room to probably go do what I had asked of him.
I needed time to calm my nerves, and be alone. Meeting his family was such a big step. We were going into 8 months of being together now so its only natural that it was time to meet them. Mothers can be so judgemental though. What if she thinks I’m just some slutty girl from America?
My best bet was to dress very conservative. It’s the reason I chose to wear a pair of brown tights with a floral red skirt over that went to my mid thigh, and a white cami with a loose fitted tan cardigan.
I was hoping this outfit would be perfect, because it warm enough for the weather, cute enough that I didn't look like a hobo, and conservative enough that I didn't look like a tramp.
I really wanted Niall’s mom to like me, so I wouldn’t dare to leave a bad first impression. I even put on heels. Not tall ones obviously, but cute little black pumps that gave me SOME height, and still looked classy.
-20 minutes later-
“You look beautiful alright? Stop freaking out.” Niall said wrapping his arms around me. I was standing in front of the mirror over-analyzing everything about myself.
“I’ve never met anyone’s family before, especially someone’s mom. I want to look proper, alright?” I was a little annoyed with Niall. I was meeting his family for the first time! Wasn’t he nervous they might not like me?
“I know what you’re thinking, an no I’m not worried. I know they’ll absolutely love you. Now can we go? If we don’t leave soon then were going to miss our flight!” I turned around and kissed him hard on the mouth. I loved that he could just look at me, and know what I was thinking. I loved that he knew what to say to make me feel better.
“Let’s go!” I said pulling away from Niall and grabbing him by the hand leading us out the door.
At around five o clock in the evening we were in a taxi on the way to Niall’s house. I had never seen anything so beautiful. I couldn’t tear my eyes away from the window. Everything was so green and mesmerizing, with the sun setting it made the scenery even better.
“It’s beautiful isn’t it?” Niall said hugging me.
“It really really is. I’ve never seen anything so beautiful, Niall.”
“Oh yes you have…” I looked at him confused. “Oh I guess I will have refrain your memory.” Niall pulled out my compact mirror from my bag. “Now that’s a beauty!”
I started laughing so hard, and kissed him on the cheek.
“Oh come here you.” Niall said grabbing my face and kissing me, but I pulled away.
“I just re-touched my make-up babe, I don’t want your family to be able to tell that we were making out in the car!”
“Well, they obviously know we embrace sometimes if they’re having us stay together in my room.” He smiled and winked at me.
“Really? Well were totally not hooking up while were here! No way.” Niall’s eyes buldged open.
“Were going to be here for 4 days though!” I kinda wanted to laugh because I hadn’t held out on Niall since we had started having sex. Who knew I had all this power? The look on his face was just priceless.
“Don’t worry, four days isn’t that long.” I said laughing, and patting him on the knee. Niall was about to protest, but the cab came to a stop.
“Are we here?” I asked nervously.
“Yes, yes we are.” Niall said opening the door, and pulling me out by the hand.
I stepped out of the car, and saw a normal house on a normal street. It was nice to see that Niall came from such an ordinary home. I couldn’t help but smile.
I was about to help Niall with our bags when the front door of his house opened, and a young guy came out.
“Mum sent me out to help you with the bags… Oh hello there, you must be Christina. I’m Greg, Niall’s brother.” He stuck his hand out for me to shake, which I did. “I’ve seen pictures of you in magazines with Nialler here, but I didn’t think you would be this pretty in real life.” Before Niall could hit him, he ran back in the house with most of our bags, while Niall grabbed the last suitcase and shut the trunk.
Niall payed the taxi driver, and then grabbed my hand as we began walking up the walkway to his front door.
Niall turned the door knob, and put his hand on my waist pulling me in.
The first person to greet us was Nialls dad. “Hello, I’m Bobby, Nialls dad. You must be Christina. Nice to finally meet ya.” I shook his hand like I did Gregs. I thought Nialls parents were divorced? They must be on good terms then. Niall bear hugged his dad, then walked me down the hall and led me into the kitchen, which was filled with atleast 10 people.
I got about five, “Hi, I’m Nialls cousin”, and I met some of his aunts. They were all so nice hugging me, and telling me i was so pretty. Finally though, Niall’s mom walked over from the kitchen counter. She pulled Niall into a tight hug, and they both started crying a little bit. They finally pulled away from each other, and she placed her hands on the sides of his face.
“I missed you so much. You need to visit more often!”
“Yes mum.” They smiled at each other, and then they both turned to me.
“Well, you must be the reason why Niall hasn’t visited me in so long.” My eyes practically shot out of my face.
“Oh I’m kidding, I’m kidding. Give me a hug beautiful girl.” Nialls mom wrapped her arms around, and she was an amazing hugger as Niall was.
“You can call me Maura, dear. Do you go by Christina only?” She said rubbing my arm.
“Uhm, yeah. Christina is fine… Unless you can think of any wicked nicknames.”
“Well I had an American friend, and she named her daughter Christina, but everyone called her Nina. Is that one nice?” I looked towards the ground. I had just met Maura, and I was already going to cry in front of her? No way. Be strong Christina.
“Yeah. Um. My dad used to call me that, so um… yeah… Nina is fine…”
“How about everyone goes in the living room so I can have a chance to get to know Nina huh?” Everybody scrambled around, and then all went into the living room. “Niall, go put your bags away. We need girl time.” She gave Niall a playful shove, he kissed me in the cheek, and then left the kitchen.
“Come sit down yeah? I’ll pour you a cup of tea.” I walked slowly, and sat down at the dining table. Maura then walked over with two tea cups. She sat one down in front of me, and then the other infront of herself.
“Thank you.” I said before taking a sip.
“So you and Niall have been dating for quite some time now… I assume you guys are pretty serious?” I looked up to meet her kind eyes. They weren’t the same color as Nialls, but they were just as sweet.
“Yeah, 8 months is pretty long. I honestly never thought in a million years this would ever happen though.”
“I remember when Niall first told me about you…” My eyes lit up, and were eager for her to continue on. “Whenever he is touring or in a different country he messages me more often. I remember him calling me after your first date. He told me everything that he liked about you. From the moment he met you, he was just so crazy about you.”
I started to smile, because I had never been so flattered.
“To be honest, I was quite nervous when he first mentioned you. You were an American girl I didn’t know at all so my first thought was ‘What if he never comes home, and just stays in the States”? Oh was I wrong though.”
“Does Niall talk about me constantly?” I finally spoke.
“Oh honey, every single conversation we’ve had in the past months has been about you. This is my first time meeting you, but I already know practically everything about you.” We both began laughing.
“Well now I feel terrible, because I know absolutely nothing about you.”
“Don’t worry. You’ll get to know me very well in the next four days… and sweetheart?”
I looked up. “Yes?”
“I don’t know if Niall ever told you… but I lost my father at a young age as well.” Tears began welding in eyes.
“No he never told me…” I said not breaking eye contact.
“I was about 18. It was pretty hard on me too. Now that I know your father called you Nina… would it be alright if I called you that too? I like it very much.” She was smiling at me shyly. I never let anyone call me Nina, but with her…
“I would love it if you did.” I whispered grinning.
“Well then its settled.” She said standing up. “Come on then dear.” She held out her arm, and I stood up hugging her. “I bet everyone is waiting for us in the living room. It’s time to play some Charades! Family tradition.” She smiled at me and we began walking towards the other room.
I was so excited and nervous to see what was instore for the next 4 days…
-1 week later-
“I wish we didn’t have to leave!” I said hugging Maura.
“Me too, Nina. Don’t worry though! Niall promised me he would bring you back soon.”
“I seriously cannot wait. I had so much fun here! The time just flew by!”
“Yeah… the boys are going to kill me when we get home for extending our trip a whole three days!” Niall said putting our luggage in the taxi trunk.
“Oh, but it was worth it!” I said rubbing his arm, but he just rolled his eyes. Clearly, he was still upset with me for not putting out the entire week we had been here.
“Well both of you give me a hug, now.” Maura pulled both Niall, and I into a small group hug.
“I’ll see you soon, and Niall you better treat Nina right.” I started laughing.
Before Niall could say anything I got into the cab, and pulled him with me.
We waved bye one last time, and then the taxi driver began driving away.
I rested my head on Nialls shoulder. “I had such a lovely time, babe. We have to come back more often!” I started rubbing his knee, teasing him a bit.
“Yes, definitely. One condition though.” I looked up pretending to be confused.
“What condition?” I smiled playfully.
“You can’t hold out on me like that ever again! I’ve been dying!” Niall nearly shouted, but he had a huge grin on his face, so I knew he wasn’t upset or anything.
“Alright, I promise. It was just the first trip, and I was nervous! I didn’t want to-“
“It’s okay, love. Just don’t do it again.” He kissed me on the lips. I pulled him back to my lips, and began kissing him for a little bit.
I finally pulled away, and looked at him. “Don’t worry. When we get home… I’m all yoursss…” I pressed my forehead against his, and closed my eyes. I could still feel him smirking though.
*Sorry if the formatting is jacked. I wrote this all on my phone, I know I said this was the Chapter where things were going to get super crazy, but I’m making it next chapter instead. The trip to Ireland was crucial in building the Nina and Niall relationship, because things about to get insane. Enjoy! xx
“I can’t believe we’re already going in to a New year!” Christina was pouring all of us lads each a shot, and two for her and Kelley.
This year for New Years Louis and Harry decided to throw a huge party again at their flat. There was so many people here, it was pretty outrageous. Not to mention how much liquor they bought. It was about 11 o clock, and we were all pretty toasted already.
“Seriously! Cannot believe that its already 3 years since the x factor boys!” Louis shouted over the music to the seven of us.
“Okay, can we just throw this back already? And why are these shot glasses so big?!” Zayn asked with a grin on his face.
“No, but wait where is El and Danielle? They have to take a shot with us too!” Christina was completely drunk. I had never seen her like this, but it was pretty funny. Her cheeks were flushed more, and she couldn’t stop smiling.
“They’re in the-” Louis started to say
“Right here!” They yelled in unison running over. Christina quickly poured Eleanor a shot, but before she could pour Danielle one, Danielle asked for a shot glass filled with only water.
Christina gave her a funny look, but did what she was told. Danielle reached for her shot glass, and then switched her glass with Liam’s. She winked at him, and smiled. Sometimes we totally forgot Liam couldn’t really drink.
We all put our glasses up in the air, “Alright, let’s just have a great New Years together alright?” Harry yelled.
“WOOO” Louis shouted even louder.
We all clacked our large glasses together, and then chugged.
“Shit. Who decided to buy these huge shot glasses? My throat is burning!” El yelled looking at both Harry and Louis.
“Don’t look at me! You know Louis is the drunk one always, not me!” Harry said defensively.
“Oh come on babe, let’s go dance.” Louis grabbed Eleanor’s hand, and pulled her to the dance floor.
The boys and Danielle were talking amongst themselves so i turned towards Kelley.
“What do you suppose they’re saying?” I said with a smirk. Kelley grinned.
“Oh come on! My birthday is at the end of the month, and yours is a week after. They’re probably talk about throwing us some crazy party like this one!” She waved her arm emphasizing all the people in the flat. Dear lord, everyone looked so drunk. Or maybe i just really was.
“Oh gosh, i hope not. No one has every surprised me with anything. It would be so weird!”
“Well they probably will, here come on let’s go to the kitchen, and get something to drink that doesn’t contain alcohol ms. tipsy!” She grabbed me by my hand and we started running to the kitchen like children. I honestly didn’t know how i was doing it in these heels, they were like 5 inches! They were so tall i was Niall’s height practically!
Kelley started pouring me a glass of apple juice, but i realized i had to go to the restroom really bad. She was about to hand me the glass.
“You know what, i have to go to the bathroom pretty bad. I’ll drink it when i get out!” I said turning away and walking to the bathroom.
“Seriously Christina! You little drunk!” She yelled laughing, but i mean come on it’s New Years! I don’t drink like this all the time so i want to enjoy it.
I did my business in the bathroom upstairs, and i was walking out i ran in to Harry.
“OW. Sorry!” I said as we ran in to one another. Our bodies completely smacked each other.
“It’s okay. Sorry too!” He started laughing. Harry was the kind of person that if he laughed or smiled it was contagious. He just had that kind of affect on people. So before i knew it we were both cracking up about absolutely nothing.
“Why are we even laughing?!” Harry said in between breaths.
“Who even knows!” I said slapping my leg, but i was so off balance at the moment because the last shot we took finally kicked in. I was full out drunk now.
Slapping my leg caused me to fall to the ground.
“HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA” Harry was laughing so hard now, and him laughing so hard brought him to the ground as well. We were practically rolling on the floor laughing. I turned to look at him smiling at laughing on the ground. He was so cute when he laughed. I really missed being with him, and us laughing like this over the most ridiculous things.
“W-what?” He said turning to look at me. He still had a smile on his face. I ran my hair through his curls, and then left my hand on his cheek.
“I really do miss you.” Our laughs became silent, and we just stared at each other.
“You know i miss you too. I’m sorry for everything that i did. I never wanted to ruin things between you and Niall. I just couldn’t help how i felt you know?” He looked like a puppy.
“Of course i understand Hazz. Just promise me something like that will never happen again? I want you to always be my best friend!” I said grabbing his cheeks with my hands. He started smiling again.
“Best friends forever?” He said holding out his pinky. I wrapped my infant pinky around his rather large one.
“Forever.” He then pulled me into a hug, and for a good couple of minutes we just lyed there on the ground hugging. He was way taller than Niall, so hugging him i felt even more like a midget.
“We should probably get up before someone comes up here, and sees us like this. Could be hard to explain.” Harry said laughing, and pulling away from me.
“Yeah, let’s go party!” Harry got up from the ground, and then pulled me up by my hands.
“Last one to the bar has to chug another shot!” He started running down the stairs.
“No fair Hazza! I’m in heels!” I ran after him down the stairs at a slower pace.
“Well, it can’t be as big as this party but-” I was saying to Liam, but then Harry came running down the stairs towards the bar.
“I GOT HERE FIRST.” He said jumping on top of the bar, and sitting. We were all confused until we saw Christina running right behind him.
“No fair Harry! You got a head start, and i’m in heels!” She said pointing her finger in his face.
“Are you backing out?” He said squinting at her.
“Oh, just pour the damn shot Hazza.” She said laughing, and turning away from him.
I was on the opposite side of the bar, so i walked over towards her, and wrapped my arms around her waist.
“By the time midnight comes around, you’re going to be very very drunk ms. lady.” I kissed her on the neck. She turned around, and wrapped her arms around my neck, and then kissed me on the lips.
“To be honest, i’m already very drunk. I’m a cute drunk though right?”
“The cutest drunk i’ve ever met. You’re almost completely irrisistable right now. I’m debating if i should just take you home right now, and make love to you.”
“Oh my gosh Niall!” She said blushing, but i knew she felt the same by the way she moved even closer tome, and kissing me on the neck.
“HEY LOVE BIRDS!” Zayn and Kelley yelled at the same time.
“Ugh. WHAT?” I said looking over at the bar.
“Well it’s about to be midnight, and little Christina over there has to take her shot before then.” Harry said with a grin.
Christina rolled her eyes, kissed me on the cheek, and then walked over to the bar.
“Damn you Styles!” She grabbed the shot glass and tossed it back like it was nothing.
“You know that’s not water right?” Kelley said looking at Christina with the funniest look.
“Umm, yeah i’m pretty wasted so this actually does taste like water!” She laughed then walked over to me.
“We have exactly 20 minutes until midnight. Dance with me!” She grabbed me, and pulled me by the hand towards the dance floor.
“Sure babe.” How could i not? She looked so amazing tonight. She was wearing a tan strapless dress that was fitted to her body. The dress showed off all her amazing curves. Not to mention her 5 inch tall heels she was wearing. Even though they made her as tall as me her legs looked so hot in them.
She pulled my arms around her waist, and started to slowly grind on me to the beat of the music.
“We should get you drunk like this more often.” I whispered in her ear.
“This is my first drinking experience, and so far i like it. We should all go out like this every weekend!” She whispered back laughing.
“You look so beautiful tonight.” I kissed her on the neck.
She turned her around to face me. “You don’t look bad yourself.” She put her arms around my neck, and pulled me into a kiss. The way our lips moved together was different. It was almost a bit rough. This alcohol brought out a whole different girl i didn’t know.
The music cut off, and everyone became confused, but somehow we managed to not even be bothered. Christina just kept kissing me, and we ignored everything that was around us.
“IT’S ABOUT TO BE MIDNIGHT EVERYONE!” Louis and Eleanor shouted to everyone who was around us.
“COULD YA’LL STOP MAKING OUT FOR JUST ONE MINUTE?” Kelley shouted after. I knew she was talking about us so i started smiling into our kiss, but then Christina pulled away from me, and looked over towards Kelley.
“Oh shut up Kell!” Christina stuck her tongue out, and then blushed a really bright red. She was so incredibly red from the drunkness and embarrassment.
Harry began leading the count down, “TEN.. NINE.. EIGHT.. SEVEN..” Then everyone in the house joined in. “SIX.. FIVE.. FOUR.. THREE.. TWO.. ONEEEE!!!”
Hugs, and kisses were exchanged between everyone in the room, but Christina just looked at me in the eyes, and planted a kiss on my nose. “Happy New Years babe.”
I kissed her on the cheek, and then whispered in her ear. “Can we go home? All i want is you right now.” She smiled real big, and then grabbed my hand walking us towards the front door.
We passed by all the lads, and girls at the bar. They were all winking at giving me thumbs up, but i just rolled my eyes at them. I didn’t care about anyone right now. All that was running through my mind was what would happen once Christina, and I finally got home.
*So i took forever to update! Sorry! But next Chapter things are going to get crazy! Oh yeahh. Something unexpected? WHO KNOWS(;
“So what do you do for a living Jim?” I said sternly looking him in the eye. I hoped I actually looked scary, and not like a baby penguin.
Jim was the average Caucasian and divorced older man that was raised in LA. At first i didn’t quite get what my mom saw in him, but then i remembered my mom was heavily attracted to white guys. She married my dad after all, who was a complete redneck from Nashville. I should’ve known her taste in men hadn’t changed.
“I’m a doctor… A surgeon actually. Have been for about 30 years now.”
“Wow. You must be old!” It slipped out. I did one of those thinking out loud things. My eyes shifted to my dinner plate.
The table fell dead silent, but then cackles started escaping Jim’s mouth. It was so funny even I started laughing. Then everyone else joined in.
“Since everyone seems to be in a decent mood, i think it’s time we share our good news.” Lily said standing up with Jacob rising at her side. Lily was tall, thin, and had dirty blonde hair. I always envied her looks, and not to mention her hot-on-a-stick boyfriend. They’ve been together fro almost 5 years now though so i pretty much looked at Jake as my brother.
“If mom’s assumption that you’re pregnant is right i think i’ll die.” I said rolling my eyes.
“PREGNANT? Oh god, no no no. I’m not pregnant, buuuuuut…” She always stretched her words out when she was saying something important. We were all waiting for her to finish her sentence so we hadn’t noticed that she stuck her hand out. There on her wedding finger was a ginormous rock for a diamond.
“Goddamn that is huge!” I said pulling her hand close to my face so i could examine it. My eyes were bulging out of my head. I always knew Jacob had money, but holy crap this ring was huge.
“Congratulations baby!” My mom said pulling Lily in for a hug, while Jim shook Jacob’s hand congratulating him as well.
I was really happy for my sister. I really really was, but everything happening in the past couple days.. I just wasn’t in a loving mood.
“Why don’t i go get my camera. I’ll be right back.” I said excusing myself from the dinner table and making my way down the hall.
I began climbing the stairs to the second floor, where my room was. I was so fortunate to have the whole upstairs to myself through out my teen years. It used to be Lily’s, but when she moved out it became all mine. All that was located on the second floor was a semi large room, and bathroom with an extra closet in the hallway.
As i walked into my room i shut the door behind me, and headed over to my bed to throw myself onto it. I lyed there for a couple seconds, and then did what every dumb girl does after a break-up. I pulled out my cellphone and began looking at photos Niall and I had taken together. I couldn’t bring myself to delete them. I don’t know if i ever would. We just looked so damn happy in them, and Niall always looked so cute while i was a potato.
Tears started rolling down my cheeks. I missed Niall so much. All i wanted was to be in his arms right now, and have him sing me to sleep.
“What the hell?” I said walking over to my window. Was someone throwing something at my window?
I looked through the window to see what it was, and a giant grin washed over my face. I lifted up the window, and peeked my head out. As soon as Niall saw the grin on my face he began playing his guitar. He played the notes to one of my favorite Mumford and sons songs: Dustbowl Dance.
I began humming the lyrics, but then Niall started singing.
♪ The young man stands on the edge of his porchThe days were short and the father was goneThere was no one in the town and no one in the field
This dusty barren land had given all it could yield- ♪
“Niall stop singing.” I whispered to him. His smile that was normally on his face when he sang vanished. Now he just looked awkward standing on the roof outside my window. How did he get up here anyways?
“Just come in okay. Let’s talk.” I walked over to my bed and sat down while Niall climbed in my window, and followed to do the same thing.
It had been 5 minutes, and we still hadn’t said a word. I didn’t know what to say, and clearly he didn’t either. Finally i looked up to see Niall was just sitting there, and staring at me. It wasn’t an awkward eye contact, but i still dropped my head to the floor.
Niall placed his hands under my chin, and made me look at him. It was so hard to look in to those baby blue eyes, and not kiss him. So i did.
I began kissing him so passionately. We’d never shared a kiss like this. Normally our kisses were sweet, and filled with love. This kiss had so many different emotions though.
I lifted the guitar off of him and placed it on the ground. Then i pushed him farther on to my bed and began kissing while getting on top of him. As our kiss became more intensified Niall flipped me on my back so now he was on top of me. I yanked his shirt off, and just as he began peeling my dress off my bedroom door swung open.
“Whats taking you so lo-“
I looked over completely mortified at my sister. She had met Niall a few times when he came down to visit me a couple months ago, but we weren’t exactly a PDA couple. This was the first time she’d ever seen us embracing like this.
“Oh wow. Sorry! I’ll uh…” She turned around not sure whether to shut the door or leave it open. Poor thing looks like she just ran into a wall or something. She was so confused.
“Lil?” I yelled softly before she could walk away. I pushed Niall off of me, and walked over to the door.
“Uh, what is it C?”
“Can you just tell mom that i have a really bad headache, and i’m lying down for a bit. Tell her i’ll be down soon.” I didn’t want Niall to hear my following words so i whispered them to her. “This isn’t really what it looks like alright. I need to talk to him anyways…”
“Talk? Right! That’s what you were planning on doing.” Lily smiled at me, then walked down the stairs laughing. I’ve never been so embarrassed in my entire life.
I walked back over to the bed not shutting the door, and sat down.
“We really do need to talk.” I looked over at Niall, and he was putting his shirt back on.
“Look… I feel terrible alright! I never should’ve believed that you would cheat on me. You’re so kind and sweet. I’m just an idiot. But understand something please. Every single girl i’ve ever met has always had a thing for Harry. He’s good looking, tall, and who could resist that hair? Having that as your best friend, and me as your boyfriend? It never made sense to me. Then i walk in on him kissing you on the cheek, and you smiling…”
“It still doesn’t give you the right to-“
“I know! So many things were going through my mind though! Cut me some slack, alright? I jumped to the first conclusion in my head, and i was dead wrong. I’ve been miserable these past three days without you. I just want you to come back home…I’m so sorry i let you go. I lost you.” Niall was now leaning on the ground in front of me with his hand on my knees. As he finished his words he let his head fall onto my lap.
I lifted his face so he was looking me in the eye.
“You never lost me, Niall. I’ve been missing you too. You’re all i can think about, and i want to come home with you. I want to forget about all of this, but i can’t. I finally made up with my mom; i can’t just leave her again.”
“Yes, you can.” I looked to the other side of my room, because the voice didn’t belong to Niall; it was my mother.
“How long have you been standing there?” I said standing up, and walking over to her. Niall held on to my hand and walked towards my mom with me.
“Long enough mihita(pronounced mee-hee-thu. Italian/spanish accent)” My mom rubbed the back of her hand over my cheek. It took me til now to realize that’s why i loved when Niall did the same thing. It reminded me of my mom so much.
“What are you saying ma?”
“I’m saying after the holidays… You should go back to London.”
“No buts, alright. I want you to be happy, and i’ve seen how happy you are when you’re with him. I can take care of myself, and I have Jim now. I’m all taken care of. I just want you to be happy, and let this relationship have a chance.” She grabbed me by my face and gave me a big wet kiss on my cheek. I couldn’t help but smile.
She looked at Niall, and opened her arms. It was the funniest hug i’ve ever seen in my life. My mom was even shorter than me, and Niall completely towered over her. As they pulled away from the hug my mom grabbed Niall’s face and gave him the same sloppy kiss. I could tell Niall was so happy though. He figured since my mom was so approving of me going back i would just say yes? I still had to decide if i forgave him. It was all up to me. No one else.
“Thank you Mrs. Rossi.” Niall said with a cute smile.
“When are you going to stop calling me that boy? Francine is perfectly fine.”
“Thank you Francine.” He said correcting himself.
“Now i’ll leave you two to talk, but if you aren’t down in another half an hour i’m sending Lily back up here to get you. We’re waiting on you both to play Scrabble, so hurry!” She walked out shutting the door.
The thought of playing scrabble with my mom sounded hilarious to me, because even after living in america for almost 30 years now her English still wasn’t always the best.
I walked away from Niall, and curled up in a ball on my bed. Niall got on the bed and wrapped his arms around me. We lyed there for a good 10 minutes before i finally spoke.
“Just tell me you trust me. Tell me that you know i would never ever hurt you.”
“I know you never would, and i’m sorry i ever believed that you could. I wish i could take it back.” A light smile appeared on my face. I turned over so i was still in Niall’s arms but we were facing each other now.
“I’ve never wanted Harry, and i never will. I see him as a little brother. A ginormous little brother, but still just as a brother. He will always be a best friend, but you…” I ran my hand over his cheek, and through his hair until i placed it on the back of his neck. I pulled him closer to me and pecked him on the lips. “I only have eyes for you. No one else.” After the words came out i knew we would never have to talk about this subject ever again. We’d forgiven each other, and we could finally get past it.
“I love you Christina Niccola Rossi.” He kissed me on the cheek, but i couldn’t help laughing.
“Your italian accent is getting better every day. You actually said my middle correctly!” We both began laughing, and no it wasn’t the way i had imagined it would be. In our own way though, i knew our first Christmas together would be lovely.
*Enjoy everyone! x
It had been a week and a half since the elevator incident, and Christina still wouldn't return my calls or text messages. I just wish that she would hear me out. Just give me a couple minutes to explain everything. If she wasn't going to take my calls then she would just have to face me. I decided on going to her and Niall's flat. She had to let me in. It's the holidays, shouldn't everyone be in a joyous mood?
I was walking up the steps to their flat when I started to feel like this could be a really idea after all.
“Maybe I should just go back home…” I flipped in reverse. I didn’t even know what to say to her.
“Harry? What are ya doing mate?” It was Niall.
“Oh I was uh… I was uhm just stopping by to see you guys before I left for Chesire. Turns out I won’t be able to make it to your guys’ Christmas party.”
“Oh, well Christina is inside. I was running to the shop to get some more eggnog. Just go inside she is in the kitchen. see you when I get back.” He said dashing to his car.
I slowly paced to the front door, took a deep breath, and turned the door nob.
It felt so long since I had been here. I think the last time was when Christina and I passed out on the couch watching Bambi. Back when everything was right with us. I started walking through the foyer, and towards the kitchen.
“Niall, babe did you forget something?” Christina turned around with a smile on her face expecting to see Niall, but when she realized it was me her smile completely vanished. She didn’t say anything for 5 whole minutes. I started to walk closer to her, and that’s when she finally spoke up.
“What are you doing here, Harry?” She folded her arms. I’ve never seen her look so pissed off.
“It’s been a week. How long are you going to keep this up? Just forgive me already! I’m your best friend!” I pleaded walking closer to her.
“You don’t get it do you? I’m not upset over the kiss Harry…”
My eyes grew wide. “You aren’t?”
“No. I’m upset because our whole friendship for the last 7 months has been a total lie!”
“What are you even talking about?” I was so confused. I tried walking closer to her, but she pushed me away.
She turned around with her head leaned down, and put her arms on the counter top.
“This whole time I thought I could trust you but-“
“You can trust me!” I nearly shouted.
“No I really can’t. This whole 7 months I thought you were my best friend. I thought you were someone I could confide in, and be there for me. This whole time though you were looking out for me as a friend, but it was all a lie because the feelings you had for me. Everything you did was because you had ulterior motives. You were never my friend.” Her head sunk down a little lower, and I knew tears were escaping her eyes.
I grabbed Christina by the arm, and turned her around so she was facing me. I cupped her small face in my oversized hands, and made her look up at me.
“Don’t you ever believe that you hear me? Yes, I will admit that this whole time I’ve been in love with you, but that doesn’t mean our friendship wasn’t real. Somedays I looked at you and saw you as nothing more than my best friend. Other days I wanted so desperately to kiss you. However, everyday that I was in love with you I loved you just as a friend also. You’re an amazing person, but it comes down to that if it means keeping you in my life, and its only as a friend then I’m fine. Whatever place I have in your life is find with me.” Tears were rolling doen her cheeks so I began wiping them away.
“One day you’re going to meet an amazing girl Hazza. She is going to be perfect for you, and you’ll wonder how you could ever have been interested in me.”
“You’re right… One day I will meet the right girl for me, but I will never forget my feelings for you. You were my first love after all. Even if you didn’t feel the same way back…” On that note she started smiling and finally looked up at me. Good sign.
“You’re so ridiculous!” She looked so beautiful, but for the first time I finally looked at her truthfully as just my best friend.
Her face was still in my hands so I bent down and kissed her on her cheek. Then I whispered, ” best friends forever” in her ear.
She smiled at me, but then she looked behind us and her face was filled with worry.
“What’s going on?” Niall said in a low voice.
Christina pushed me away. “Nothing. We were just talking about… Stuff. Clearing the air.”
“I knew something was going on! I knew it. Do you guys think I’m an idiot?” Niall was fuming. He slammed the carton of eggnog onto the counter. I was ruining everything.
“Niall this is my fault.” I said walking towards him. He looked taken off guard.
“Truth is, I’ve had a thing for Christina all this time.” Niall’s eyes darted up.
“I kissed her in the elevator last week…”
“YOU WHAT?” This was not going to be pretty.
“She was crying from the earthquake, and I was holding her. I don’t know what came over me.”
“She was crying from the earthquake, and I was holding her. I don’t know what came over me.” As soon as the words left Harry’s mouth Niall walked up to him and punched him I’m the face.
“NIALL!” I shouted running in between them.
“What are you going to defend him?” He yelled looking into my eyes. He looked so hurt. This was all my fault.
“Yes, I am! He is my best friend. I love him, and I’m in love with you. I’m not going to have the two most important men in my life fighting!”
“So did you kiss him back?”
“You heard me! Did you kiss him back? I bet you did. Didn’t you?” He spat the last sentence out at me. He wasn’t going to believe me no matter what I said. It was clear.
“You know what? This just proves you don’t even know me at all. The fact that you think I could do something like that to you… I’m done.” I pushed myself away from Niall who still had an angry face, and Harry who was stopping his nose from bleeding with his shirt.
“What do you mean you’re done?” Niall said in a low voice.
“Exactly that.” Before Niall could react I gave a final, “I’m going home”, and walked up the stairs and slammed the bedroom door.
-3 days later-
“That ornament is so ugly! Don’t put it back on mom!” I jokingly slapped my moms hand away from the Christmas tree hoping she wouldn’t secretly put it back on when I wasn’t looking.
It was the night before Christmas eve, and I was back home. After what happened with Niall and Harry in London I figured it was so for the best. Niall begged me not leave the morning of my fight, but I wouldn’t even listen. I just grabbed my suitcase and left to catch my plane.
Even though I was leaving I wish be had followed me. I wished that be would realize how he couldn't live without me, and in his final effort to stop me from boarding my plane. He didn't though. He just let me go. That proved to me, what we had must have not been as special to him as it was to me.
Suddenly, I felt warm arms wrap around me. I had been daydreaming and looking at the tree so I had to turn and look to realize it was my mom.
“I’m so happy you’re home. These past couple months without you haven’t exactly been fun.”
“I’m glad to be home too mom. I was stupid for leaving. If you’re ready to date then I just have to accept it, and get over it.”
In truth, I was still very hurt that my mom was dating someone else, but I had to deal with it. I hadn’t realized how much I missed her until I walked through the front door, and ran into her arms.
If coming back home meant that I had to deal with some guy my mom was seeing, then I would get over it. But what sucked was they weren’t just seeing each other. Apparently they had been together for a good 5 months now. Don’t know how I never noticed it.
“I’m glad to hear that.” She said spinning me around so i was facing her, but still in her arms. “I was thinking of having Jim over for dinner tomorrow night.”
“What you mean Christmas eve dinner? For the past 4 years its just been you, me, and Lily. Tradition.” Lily was my older sister. Even though she lived in the same city we didn’t get to see each other that often. With me being a full time student, my mom always getting called in to work, and Lily being the editor-in-chief of the county newspaper it was hard for us to spend time together.
“Well it was just a thought. Plus, Lily is bringing Jacob. Important news or something. That girl better not be pregnant!” My mom started laughing, but I couldn’t find anything funny. Lily and Jacob had been dating for years now, but I seriously doubt she was pregnant. She would’ve told me.
“Is this going to be couples night or something? I don’t feel like being the fifth wheel.”
“Look, if you don’t want Jim to come then just say so.” She said letting me go and turning around.
I just wanted to see her happy. I just wanted to see that beautiful smile appear on her face again. I walked closer to her, and wrapped my arms around her from the back. I buried my face in her back.
“It’s okay. He can come alright. I just want to see you happy.”
She rubbed my hands that were around her waist. “Thank you Nina.” A tiny tear escaped my eyes. Nina was what my dad always called me. When I was younger I couldn’t prenounce my full name so I would always say Nina. My dad picked it up, and called me it ever since.
“It feels nice to hear that name after 4 years…”
“I’m such an idiot. How could I just let her leave like that?” I should’ve stopped her. I honestly don’t know why I didn’t. “It’s only been 3 days and I’m already completely miserable without her.”
“I’m sorry mate. I’m sorry for everything. This is all my fault.” Harry and I were sitting in front of the Christmas tree in my living room. Christina had just gotten it, and decorated the night before everything happened. Even with her working at the coffee shop almost every day she managed to decorate the entire house. Underneath the the Christmas tree was all the presents she had gotten everyone. All wrapped.
For the past 3 days Harry has been coming over begging me to forgive him, and today I finally decided to let him in the flat.
“How can I blame you for loving her? Who couldn’t love her? Everything about her is just…” Harry grabbed one of the presents under the tree and threw it at me.
“What the hell?”
“Just open it. I know she would’ve wanted you to.” Harry smiled at me, as if it were encouraging. I gave in.
It was just a tiny rectangular box. Something that would contain jewelry. I really hope it wasn’t something expensive like that, then I would really feel like an ass.
I slipped off the wrapping paper easily, and there it was just a tiny rectangle box. I lifted the lid to find just a tiny paper that was the same shape as the box.
“On behalf of Nandos, this certificate gives you a years pass to anyone of our restaurants in the city of London… What? I don’t get it.” I said looking up at Harry.
“There is another note in the box man.” I looked down, and sure enough there was. I didn’t have to look hard to realize it was Christina’s writing.
“Babe, this is for your nights when you go on tour and can’t eat my delicious food. Think of this as a credit card that you never have to pay off. Enjoy all the food you can eat! With love, your princess xoxo” I whispered the last part to myself.
“The Nandos staff missed you coming in so often, so they gave her a deal. She knew our tour was coming up so she figured it would be perfect.”
I can’t believe I’ve been such an idiot. I should have never doubted her.
“I knew she could never hurt me… And like a prick I’ve hurt her in the most horrible way possible. I didn’t trust …” I looked down, and planted my hands on my face. But then I shot up.
“Screw this!” I said jumping up, and running upstairs to my room. Harry trailed after me.
“What are you doing?”
I grabbed my suitcase and began shoving clothes in it. I didn’t have time to answer Harry.
“Niall, what the hell?” Harry was still confused.
As I shoved the last of necessary things in my bag, I reached for my wallet and passport.
“I’m going to LA, and I’m getting her back.” I shoved passed Harry and ran down the stairs. Hopefully I could catch a last minute plane. I didn’t care the cost. Harry ran after me in the snow.
“Atleast let me drive you? My grandad on my step fathers side owns a jet. I just got to make a call and you can leave in an hour.” Harry was definitely making up for everything he had done.
