Underneath

Athelia Queann is living the glamorous life in London as one of the richest people in England. She's a big sensation, and everything the fans thinks she's not. She's manipulative, spoiled, selfish and nothing is never good enough for a star like her. Behind all the glitter and the fake smile, a loneliness is slowly tearing her up inside. But one day a person enters her life and changes everything. Even though Athelia don't want anyone to come this close to her, that one person starts becoming really importnant whether she wants it or not. That person is someone she used to know as Niall Horan from One Direction. Nothing more.

17. I've got no one

Nialls' P.O.V

Oxford street looked beautiful at christmas time decorated so cheery. Thin snowflakes were falling from the sky and landing on people making them look sparkling. The sun was hidding behind white clouds. The air was cold and people were dressed in big coats and hats.

It was the 16th of december, and people were rushing up and down Oxford street buying presents and looking at shop-windows.

Athelia were walking on my left side with a brown Mulberry bag on her wrist and dressed in a big and grey kneelong coat and a light pink thick scarf around her neck. Her hair was in a high ponytail which was covered in snowflakes like the rest of her hair. When tiny snowflakes landed on her black eyelashes and she winked it looked beautiful.

We were christmas shopping the last things. Last time we had been, I had been the one buying the most gifts. She had only bought 3 gifts last time. One for herself, one for her mum and one for her made Dorthya.

"What do you need to buy?", she asked.

"Hm.. not much. I was thinking you may needed to buy some more gifts? You bought... three gifts last time and one of them was for youself".

"No, it's fine", she said like I had just said something that had made her upset. She looked away acting like she was busy looking at the things in the shops window but I could tell she wasn't since it was a game-shop.

I wrinked my eyebrows. "Seriously, why did you only buy two gifts? You now tons of people...".

"I've ordered the rest on the internet!", Athelia smiled with a shrill voice.

It was so obvious she was lying. "No you haven't...Tell me why".

"Because...". Athelia sighed and swallowed. She looked sad and kind of emberresed. Her gaze looked the other way, and her she started biting her lip.

"Because I don't have anyone to give them to".

I wrinkled my eyebrows again. "What do you mean?".

"As I just said. I have no one to buy presents to".

"Ofcourse you have! You talk to tons of people every single day. You have a huge social life".

"No, I haven't Niall..". Her voice started to sound hoarse and she speaked in a low voice."No one buys me any presents and if I had bought a christmas present for any of the many people I know they would.... look wierd at me. Only my mum sends me a gift from Malibu every year, and my made buys me a pair of socks...".

I didn't know what to say. I felt bad for her. It all came like such a chock, I really did think she had loads of friends. "Well, what about the people you celebrate christmas eve with?".

Athelia had stopped walking and was now just standing looking vulnerable at me. Her eyes were glossy like she was just a centimeter from breaking out in tears.

"Every single year I end up alone christmas eve... and the same thing happens new years eve", she whispered in a shaking voice looking down at her feet. "No one wants me there.. My family doesn't like me.. and all the tons of people I've got in my contact book can't stand me. No one ever invites me... Because no one wants to celebrate with me".

"I'm sure thats not true", I said putting my left arm around her shoulders.

"It is..", she said and a tiny tear escaped her right eye. "This year, all my colleagues from the movie are celebrating New Years eve together and guess who's the only one who's not invited.... They planned it all behind my back. I found out cause I overheard Mike and Clare talking about it. They really don't want me there". Now she was crying. Not loud. Just silent tears were streaming down her face. I wanted to kiss her so badly but afraid I would ruin everything we had. I just hugged her tight.

"Don't cry. I promise I'll never let you end up alone like that again", I tried cheering her up, but it didn't work. I felt how her wet tears streamed from her eyes down on mu shoulder. I rubbed her back as she cried out in my arms.

"I always just buy millions of present for my self, wrap them up, put them under the three and open them".

"What do you do then chistmas eve? Just stay at home?".

"I just have dinner at a fancy resturant and then I wrap up the many presents, and pretend is from other people. It's the only thing that keeps me from breaking". She had stopped crying but now she cracked again. The tears streamed down her red cheeks.

"I'm so sorry Athelia, I promise you it will never be that way again".

"It will.... because some day you will get tired of me too. You got your own money you don't need mine... And then... I'm all by myself again. Niall, you're the only friend I have ever had", she said hugging me back like she never wanted to let go.

I didn't know what to say. I kept silent for a bit. "I won't Athelia".

"How do you know that?".

"I just know... You know what? This year why don't you come celebrate with me and my family in Mullingar? I'm celebrating with my mum and my stepdad... Please come. We would all love that".

Athelia's face lightned a little up. "Really? I would love to meet them".
