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.

35. Misunderstanding

Niall's P.O.v

 

I was alone in the house in the middle of the day sitting in the kitchen with my computer and a cup of coffe as a quiet noise from the frontdoor broke the silence. I looked up from my screen as I heard the sound of stilettos walking across the floor in the hallway. Mum? No, not this early.

"Hello", I asked, not bothering getting up from my chair. I took a sip of my coffe while just waiting for the person to appear or answer me. The warm ligeur burned in my throat.

"Hellooo", a girly voice sounded from the hallway and as I reconized the voice my heart skipped a beat. I slowly got up from my chair walking towards the hallway. There she was, in high heels, tight jeans and a tight top. Kattie.

Smiling fake at me with her long black hair hanging loose down her shoulders.

"Kattie?", I asked while wrinkeling my eyebrows a bit. Kattie was my cousin. The only one I was related to, I could not stand.

"Hi", she giggled and stepped into the kitchen. She was carrying two big yellow shoppingbags. Probably from grocery shopping. She sat down the heavy bags at the kitchencounter and sighed out in realief.

I just stood there confused looking wierd at her. She walked towards me and gave me a small kiss on my cheek. Her strong perfume almost made my nostrils burn.

'What..are you doing here?", I asked her while scratching my head. While giving me a smile she started to pack out the grocery bags. 

"I was in the neighboorhood when I met your mum who told me you were in town so I decided to go visit you and make you a good lunchmeal", she said and her sentence almost sounded sweet . And probably if I didn't knew her, I would have though she was doing this in her bestest meaning, but I knew her too good to know that was not the case. Kattie had a plan. Ofcourse she had.

"Thatss..", I mumbled just looking at her. "Very nice of you". She smiled at me again. That smile just would not go of her face. It scared me. Those white teeth surounded by those red lips.  

"How's everything about you and Athelia going?", she asked still bussy packing out the grocery bags but she still glanced at me with her left eye. I sat down at the table again

"My mum didn't tell you?", I said. Ofcourse Kattie knew. I could tell by the triumph in her voice. She already knew the answer, she just wanted me to confirm it. And obviously she was thrilled about it. What else to expect from a girl like her? The snake, as I used to call her. She always reminded me of this mean crafty snake. So full of secrets and with an agenda behind everything she did. She always had an agenda.

"No, what sweetheart?", she asked as she bented down to get a cuttingboard for the vegetables lying on the desk.

I sighed, getting pissed at her. How dared she. It was tearing me up inside to say it, and still she wanted me to say it.

"We're over", I said not looking at her, with my eyes on my computerscreen.

She looked at me like she cared and like she actually felt sorry for me. Ofcourse she didn't. Her eyes said it all. She was thrilled. She cocked her head to the side and smiled at me with a fake pity.

"Oh dear, I'm so sorry to hear that. But then again, didn't I tell you?". She smiled happily at me. "Maybe it's good it didn't last, she wasn't the girl for you".

She was geeting on my nerves. Her fake smile, her fake look, her fake pity. Her fake everything. I wanted to get up, and yell to her face that she shouldn't speak about Athelia in that way and then tell her to get the heck out of the house. But I didn't. I stayed on my chair smiling slightly at her. I had to pull myself together.

"I really did love her Kattie", I just sad.

While she started cutting the vegestabels she smiled at me once again making me sick. "Ofcourse you did honey, but you have to realize that you were just fooling youself. You didn't love her. Look how miserable she made you".

A rage was pilin up inside me. How dared she? To talk about Athelia in that way? Pretending to know everything about us? Acting like she knew how I felt inside? To tell me it was all for the good I was no longer with her? How dared she.

"Kattie..", I sighed. "We were very happy and if you don't get that I guess it's your problem not mine".

"Wow wow, someone's crank today huh?", she giggled. "I know how you're feeling, maybe a home-cooked meal will cheer you up?".

I imagined my face expression to be cold and stiff. God she was a snake.

"Don't worry, you'll get over her one day. You think you never will, but I promise you will".

"I guess I will..", I mumbled struggling my shoulders. I tried to ignore her.

"I bet you're already feeling better compared to the day she left you?".

"I am, but stil I'm..... I miss her everyday".

Kattie walked down to me and carefully sad down next to me. She smiled slightly.

"You'll be alright again, I promise".

Athelia's P.O.V

My heart was pounding on high speed as I arrived to the big house. I felt like I was running out of air. My throat felt so dry and my whole body were trembeling. This was it. I was on my way to see him. I wondered how he would react?  Would he be as happy to see me as I would be to see him? Was he even home? Was everything turning around now? Was this my happy ending? Millions of thoughts were running through my already confused mind as I walked up the driveway with my eyes glued to the wooden door. My stomach was filled with butterfly's and I felt like I was about to pass out.

Suddently I was standing outisde the door. It all felt so real. I lifted my hand to knock, but I let it fall down my sidesagain. I was to scared. I took a deep breath. I wanted to do this, I was sure. But I had no clue what to say or do when I saw him. I couldn't wait to see him. His blue eyes. His sweet smile. His messy blond hair. His face. I needed to see him so very desperatly. But now when I was only seconds away from seeing him again, I started to get nervous. Nervous about everything that could possibly go wrong. Because ofcourse, everything would not go the way I had planned it in my head.

I turned my head around as I realized I could stare directly into the kitchen. My heart skipped a beat as I could see his back. Sitting on a chair. But with a girl next to him? A black haired girl? I started to get nervous. Who was she?

Niall's P.O.V

Kattie leaned forward. Carefully her thin fingers touched my hair. "I promise you'll be fine", she whispered in my ear giving me shivers. I wanted to push her away from me, but it was like my whole body had frozen. With a tiny smile she leaned her face closer to mine. Suddently she pressed her lips against mine.

Athelai's P.O.V

I had never every felt such pain. Like a burning fire had started up inside me. The pain was running trough my body. Rage and sadness was filing my mind. I couldn't breath. I couldn't talk. I couldn't do anything. The feeling of dying slowly inside made me step back realising I was a fool. What had I been thinking? Ofcourse he was over me. It had been 4 months.

He was kissing someone else. There was no doubt. We were over for good.

Niall's P.O.V

In a quick move I pushed Kattie away from me.

"What are you doing?!".

"Me?! You were enjoying it yourself!", she yelled.

"GET OUT!", I yelled feling the rage burn in my heart. She was such a snake. I had always known that.

"Niall, listen...", she said.

"Leave Kattie!", I yelled pointing at the door. With an offended look she got her things and stormed out the door.

Kattie's P..V

I was so angry. How dared he to reject me like that?

As I got out of the door I saw her standing clueless on the frontlawn. Looking so hopeless. Her long arms hanging loose down her sides. I smiled for myself as I realized what had happened. She had comed to see him, and had accidently seen us. It was perfect.

"Athelia?", I asked and she turned around. I saw tears in her blue eyes. She looked so miserable. Her face was one big sadness. Her eyes reminded me of a lost puppy's eyes.

She didn't say anything. She just looked at me.

"I'm sorry you had to see that".

"Are you..", she asked and cleared her throat before she conteniued. She was speakless because of the chock. Tears were streaming down her red cheeks. "Are you with him now?".

"I'm afraid I am, I'm sorry honey", I lied.

Her face dropped and looked at the ground. Her eyes wandered around eveywhere. She didn't know what to do. Obviously she was dissapointed. I knew I shouldn't lie to her, but I was so sick of her. If I didn't deserve Niall, neither did she.

"Ofcourse..", she just mumbled and swallowed. Still with her lost eyes glued to the grass. "I guess I was just a fool. Expecting him to be waiting for me.. What was I thinking?". She speaked in a low shaking voice. It was almost a whisper. Like she was just talking to herself. She then turned around and walked away. Don't ever come back, I wished as I saw her sad figure dissapearing into the cab again.

Saying some things we'll regret

Can we just slow it down and press reset
