Always In My Head: A London Calling Series
London Calling Extra: Niall and Niki: New Beginnings (Finch)
I can’t believe I’m letting her convince me to do this. Of course Harry finds a girlfriend and she’s an amateur matchmaker. I do like Annie a lot and for some terrifying reason I trust her. Niki is a cute girl. She’s different from a lot of the women I meet. Focused on finishing school and finding a way to do what she’s passionate about. Her passion happens to align perfectly with one of mine. She wants to cook for a living and if I could eat for a living I would! Okay. Here goes nothing. If this blows up in my face I’m never listening to Annie again.
Hey, it’s Niall. Annie gave me your number.
She mentioned that. I hear you’re picking me up for the party tonight.
Yeah. I’ll meet you at the pub at 6:00. Will you have enough time to change after your shift?
Yeah, I’m off at 5:00. I was gonna shower and get ready. I’ll be ready by 6:00. If you go in the backdoor there’s stairs right inside. I’m the third floor. You can come up.
Awesome. I’ll be there at 6:00.
Do I need to bring anything? Drinks, food, anything you can think of?
Well the back of my car is filled with the cupcakes Annie ordered for tonight. She baked a cake for lunch with his family but didn’t have time to do the cupcakes for the party so she and Gemma ordered and I was told to get them. I think they have food covered but I don’t think I’d tell you no to bringing food. You’re probably amazing in the kitchen.
After years of study and work I’d like to hope so. I’ll save my cooking for tomorrow since there is a Super Bowl party. Are you going to that?
Yeah I am. Frankie told me they were shutting the bar down and the party started early enough we could watch the all day coverage that Annie is obsessing over.
Cool. She’s gonna take me shopping after lunch. Help me pick out stuff for my place. You’ll have to forgive me when you get here. It’s completely empty minus the stuff that was here when Nate lived here.
No worries. You just moved in. I still have boxes I’ve never unpacked and I bought my house ages ago.
Well hopefully it will start to look like home soon. It already feels like it. Last night was fun. You guys are a fun group.
Yeah it was fun. I’m glad you stayed and hung out with us once you were off. I hear Annie’s been pretty sick all day.
That’s what she said. I feel terrible. I hope she wasn’t too nervous meeting his Mum on top of all of it. That’s an intimidating thing and to be hungover. Oi! I can only imagine how she feels today.
Well I better let you go. Can’t have you getting in trouble with Frankie for texting while you’re at work. I’ll see you at 6:00.
Okay. I will see you at 6:00. :)
Wait…what do I get Harry for his birthday?
The lad has everything. Except maybe control over Annie. If you find a magic potion for that he might be in need. She’s a handful. But that may just be with me.
She seems sweet. She cares about you.
She does. She also knows how to make me a bit mental. She’s a good girl though. But no worries. Harry doesn’t need anything. Just your smiling face there tonight.
Okay. Well I will see you soon Niall. Thanks for offering to take me.
No problem. I’ll see you in a bit.
I looked at the picture Annie had sent me of Niki and I last night. She really was cute. She had a great smile and an amazing laugh. Maybe Annie’s meddling wasn’t too terrible after all.

Here’s a little drabble to keep you excited while I work on the next chapter. A little bit from our friends, Niall and Niki. Please let me know what you think of this. I would LOVE to do more of these but if you aren’t interested in having things like this I don’t want to overwhelm you.
