Minor Complications (Part 1)

Instead of going to parties, 17 year old Emma would prefer to stay home and watch television, even though her best friend Tiffany begs her to leave the house once in a while. One night at a party, Tiffany meets the members of One Direction, and falls head over heels for Liam. Unfortunately, so does Emma. They become close friends with Zayn, Harrry, and Louis, who try to stay out of the drama. And then there is Niall, who constantly fights for Emma's attention. Complicated. This is part of my Complications trilogy.

This is a story for the One Direction contest. :)
It used to be called Little Complications, but when I decided to make it a trilogy I had to change the name.


9. Explanations

*Emma's Point Of View*


I drive home, tears flooding my eyes. I didn't even know why I was crying. It's not like Niall and I are dating. But why would he invite his girlfriend and I both over. I didn't even know he had a girlfriend. If I just hadn't have tripped at the top of the stairs, I could have left without a commotion. 

I get home and get a text from Tiffany.

"How's your date with Niall ;)"

This makes me cry harder. It wasn't even a date! And I never even thought about being more than friends with Niall until yesterday. Tiffany had seemed so sure about him liking me. I never realized I had feelings for Niall until I saw him kissing that girl. God. Why am I crying. 

"It didn't work out." I reply.

"What? Already? It's only 7:15"

"I'll explain later. I just want to go to sleep"

"Are you sure? Want me to come over?"

"No no have fun with Liam"

"Okay :/

Fifteen minutes later, my phone starts to ring. It is Niall. Instinctively, I answer,even though I realize I probably shouldn't have. I don't say anything.

"Hello?" he says in his Irish accent.

"What?" I snap.

"Please let me explain." 

"You don't have to explain, Niall. I get it, you have a girlfriend."

"She is definitely not my girlfriend." he says, defensively.

" Oh? So, you just kiss random people you meet off the street?" 

He sighs. "Just come outside. I don't want to do this over the phone."

"What do yo mean come out-" but he hangs up.

Was he actually outside my house? I look in the mirror, and brush my fingers through my hair. I look terrible. My face is red from crying.

I walk down the stairs, unlock the front door, and slowly close it behind me. And there is Niall, in a grey sweatshirt and black jeans. His blonde hair spiked up, but a little messy.

"You have two minutes." I say, and sit down on the porch step. 

He sits beside me and explains. He explains about this girl he met a little less than a year ago. He had a big crush on her. They started dating and got pretty serious. And then he told her he loved her, and that was when she became extremely clingy. Or, in his words, crazy. She always wanted to know where he was or who he was with, and when he hung out with one of his best girlfriends from his childhood, she got angry. He eventually couldn't take it anymore and broke up with her. She freaked out and wouldn't accept it. She acted like they were still dating. So he changed his numbers and completely stopped talking to her. He has no idea how she found him here.

"I'm sorry I ran away, without giving you a chance to explain." I say.

"Its okay. When I saw you leave I just got so scared." he says.

"Scared of what?"

"That I would never see you again." I looked at him, right into his deep blue eyes. "I don't know if you know, Emma, but I kind of have feelings for you."

"What do you mean?" I know what he means. I just want to hear him say it.

"I mean ever since the first day on the beach, I've wanted to ask you out." he says. "I still haven't. You set up the one tonight."

I laugh. "Yeah, it really worked out great, didn't it?"

"It did." he says, staring right into my eyes. He then leans in, puts his hand under my chin, and kisses me softly on the lips.

And at that moment, I wished that night would never end.
