Through The Dark(Niall Horan)
The Little Things
It's been two days since Liam found the MISSING flyer with my face on it. I wasn't sure how I felt about them actually looking for me. I mean, I wasn't going to go home. That just wasn't an option. Not with how they treated me. Or with the fact that Niall and I were now in a relationship.
He was so protective of me, he barely let me leave the hotel room. If he had to leave, he made me go with him or left a security guard with me. If I was going to watch the show, I had to be where he could see me at all points in time.
He could be extremely annoying at some times though, especially if I took too long in the shower. He would knock on the door every five minutes to make sure I was okay. I couldn't blame him, after all he did find me standing in a freezing cold shower sobbing. He was scared, I could tell. He was scared that he was going to lose me when he just got me. Sometimes I catch him watching me while I sleep, which is both adorable and creepy.
Currently, I was laying next to him, watching him sleep for once. He looked so peaceful, probably dreaming about Nando's. He moved a little, nuzzling into his pillow a bit more and licked his lips. Yep, definitely dreaming about Nando's. I let a small chuckle slip out and moved closer to him. I pressed my lips to his and waited for his eyes to open. They didn't.
I pouted and thought to myself, then continued to leave soft kisses along his jaw line and his neck. “Babe?” kiss. “Niall?” kiss. “Baaaabe?” He groaned. Finally, a reaction. I kissed his lips once more. “I'm bored, wake up.”
Niall sighed, opening his eyes. “Why is it that if I wake you up, I get some type of mystical beast, but when you wake me up I have to be all nice and loving?”
I giggled, nuzzling my face into his chest. “I'm sorry. I just wanted to spend time with you before you have to run off and go do stupid boy band things.” Niall had been going nonstop, poor guy. Between press, photo shoots, shows, and recording, and worrying about me, he barely had time to breathe.
He put his arm around me, holding me closer to his body. “Things will die down soon, I promise.”
I nodded a bit, placing small kisses on his chest. “Things never die down for you, Niall.”
Niall pressed his lips to my forehead. “Okay, you're right about that.” He chuckled. “We're almost done recording though, so I'll have more time to spend with you.”
I smiled, looking up at him. “That sounds lovely.” I pecked his lips. “I'm sorry I woke you up.”
“It's okay love.” He rubbed my shoulder with his thumb. “I know you get restless. And think too much.”
I crinkled my nose, squinting my eyes. “You know me too well.”
Niall laughed and kissed my nose. “It's my job to know you.”
I kissed him lightly before scooting away from him. “Roll over.”
Niall raised a brow. “What?”
I pulled at his shoulder, trying to get him to lay on his stomach. “Just roll over.”
“Alright, alright. I'm rollin.” Niall laughed, finally giving in and rolling onto his stomach. I moved and straddled his bare back, beginning to massage his shoulders. I giggled when I heard a moan slip from Niall's lips.
“Consider this my apology for waking you.” I leaned down and left a trail of kisses along his shoulder blade before continue massaging all down his back.
“Apology accepted.” Niall laughed into his pillow.
I massaged his back for awhile, staying quiet most of the time. I worried about how much time I would have to spend with him. How many days I would get to wake up like this, or go to sleep with him playing with my hair. If my mum and Jim really were looking for me, it wouldn't be long before they found me. There are pictures all over of me with Niall, they just have to do some digging. Once they know who I'm with, it won't be long before they find out where we are.
I was scared to death, honestly. If I had to go back to the place, I don't know what I would do. There would be no escaping Jim this time. They wouldn't risk me leaving again, telling someone. Jim being so well respected in the business community and all, I doubt anyone back in London would believe me about him.
“Teagan?” I must have gotten lost in thought again. I rolled off of Niall's back and laid on my back. Niall propped himself up with his arm. “What's going on in your head, babydoll?”
I turned my head to look at him, analyzing every bit of his face. I felt a tear slip from the corner of my eye. “I'm scared I'm going to have to go back with them, and this time it will be even worse...” I trailed off, becoming consumed by my own thoughts.
Niall pulled me into him. “That is not going to happen, okay? I won't let that happen to you.” He stroked my hair and kissed my forehead. “You're never going back there. I promise.”
I nodded, sobbing into his chest. I wanted to believe him, but I just couldn't. I had this feeling in my stomach that I wouldn't be able to stay with him. That everything would get ripped apart and I would be broken forever. That's when there was a knock at the door, a very loud, very powerful knock. I pulled away from Niall, as he got up to open the door.
I could see Paul standing there, with a few other very large men. “Teagan's parents are here.” Paul spoke lowly, almost as if he didn't want me to hear him. My heart was beating out of my chest. They were here. They were going to take me.
“You can't let them take her! He abuses her! You saw the bruises!” Niall screamed, not letting them into the room.
“I know, I'm sorry Niall. There is nothing we can do. We don't have any proof.” I knew Paul was just as upset about this as Niall was.
“No proof? How about the scar on her face, or the fact that she's terrified of him? She's not going. You can't take her.” Niall tried closing the door but one of the other men stepped forward.
I hope the update was worth the wait. ;)
