Through The Dark(Niall Horan)
I quickly pulled away from him, running my hand through my hair. What just happened? Did I just kiss my best friend? What is wrong with me?
Liam stepped into the room. “Yo, Nialler! We're gonna go get food!”
“Yeah, alright Liam. Be right there.” Niall stuttered a bit standing up from the bed, but never taking his eyes off of me. He was making me nervous.
“Is Teagan coming?” Liam asked.
“She fucking better be!” I heard Alis yell and laughed to myself.
Niall gave me a questioning look and I nodded. “Yeah. We'll be there in a sec.”
I stood up from the bed and looked down at my pajama bottoms and long sleeve shirt. I changed into a pair of jeans and pulled my semi-dry hair up into a messy bun. The bruise around my eye had started to fade, and the cut on my cheek was healed a bit better so I didn't think about putting make up on. Honestly, I didn't really have the energy to.
I was quiet, looking out of the window of the restaurant we stopped at. All I could think of was the kiss. What did it mean? Why didn't Niall say anything after? Was I a bad kisser? Because Niall was definitely not a bad kisser. I touched my fingers to my lips as I thought about it.
“So,” Alis scooted her chair closer to me. “So Perrie and I were talking, and we decided that we should have a girls night tonight.”
I shrugged, moving some food around on my plate with my fork. “I'm not really in the mood, Alis.”
“That is exactly why we're having this girls night.” Alis smirked.
I set my fork down and sighed, knowing there was no use in fighting Alis. “Fine, whatever.” I scooted my chair back and got up. “I'm going to go for a walk...I'll meet you guys back at the hotel.”
I watched Teagan get up and leave the restaurant, immediately wanting to chase after her. I still couldn't believe she had kissed me earlier, and then Liam had to so rudely interrupt. It was only about an hour ago, but it felt like forever. I would give anything to have her lips on mine again.
“Hello?” Louis waved his hand in front of my face. “Is everything alright, Niall?”
“Oh uh, yeah. Why?” I snapped out of my daze.
“You haven't even touched your food. We all know that's not normal.” Liam frowned.
I shrugged. “Just not hungry, I guess.” I pushed back from the table. “I'm going to go try and find Teagan.”
The boys knew how much I cared about Teagan, I never kept anything from them. Plus I talked about her a lot when she wasn't around. Mostly because I missed her. Her eyes, her smile, mostly I missed her laugh. It's been so long since I've heard her laugh, which pained me. She was hurting, and I still didn't know how to help her. If only there was a way I could show her that everything was going to be alright. That she was so loved, so loved by me.
I rounded the corner and saw her sitting on a bench in the park. I walked over and sat next to her, but I didn't say anything.
I heard her sigh as she looked over at me. “Why can't you just leave me alone for five minutes?” she snapped.
I bit my lip before I spoke. “Because I promised your dad I would take care of you.”
Her eyes grew wide, I could see the tears beginning to swell bringing up her father. I didn't mean to make her upset, I just wanted to know that I wasn't going anywhere. “My..my father?” Her voice cracked.
It was time that I told her about our little chat, and about how even her father knew how much I cared about her. “Before he passed...we talked. You were getting food or something, but he made me promise that I would take care of you. Because he knew that no one other than himself could love you more than I do. I promised him that nothing would happen to his baby girl. That I would protect you, and make sure you were taken care of.”
Tears were streaming down her face. “I promised him that I would never stop loving you the way that I do, and I never will.”
She opened her mouth to speak, but I stopped her with another kiss. Her face was wet from the warm tears rushing down her cheeks, but I didn't care. I kissed her softly before pulling away and speaking lowly. “I want to be with you.”
Aaaayyyyeee it finally happened. :)
