Forever Young

Marie was an average girl. Until she wasn't.


6. Captive

"Let me go!"  I shouted at Niall, who had been holding me for the past 2 hours.  "NO!  CAPTIVES AREN'T ALLOWED TO GO!"  He shouted back.  I thought for something that would make him let go of me.  "Niall!  I have to... go make dinner!"  I said, sucessfully.  He let go of me.  "Go, woman! Go!"  He cheered, following me into the kitchen.  I decided to make a break for it.  I ran into my room, laughing, with him hot on my tail.  I locked the door behind me, and then he started whining about how hungry he was.  This went on for about 15 minutes, then I opened the door.  Big mistake.

As soon as I walked into the hallway, his embrace came around me once more.  "Dang it!"  I said.  This caused him to go into a fit of giggles.  We fell to the floor, laughing.  Louis walked out of his room, glaring at us.  We put on our best innocent faces.  "What?"  I asked him, maybe a bit to innocently.  He started laughing at us.   He held out his phone to me.  "El wants to talk to you!"  He said, extremely happy. 

"MARIE!"  She shouted into the phone.

"EL!"  I shouted, equally loud.

"You're with Niall, aren't you?"  She said.  I started getting suspisious.

"Yes... but what does that have to do with anything?"  I asked.  She squealed so loud, that I had to hold the phone away from my ear.

"You like him, don't you?"  I excused myself from the hallway, and walked into my room, because I didn't want Louis and Niall overhearing my conversation.

"Yes, but no way would he like me."  I admitted, sadly.

"You are so BLIND!  He LOVES you!" She exclaimed.

"Why would he like me?  He's famous, and I'm a nobody.  El, you're a model, Dani's a dancer, Perrie's a singer, and I AM A LOSER!"  My voice was slowly raising, until I'm sure they could hear me in China.  I hung up the phone, because I didn't want to hear her answer.  I stormed out of the room.  Niall was still in the hallway, looking shocked.  I stomped past him.  He grabbed my arm and swung me around. 

"You. Are. Not. A. Loser."  He said.  I tugged my arm out of his grip, and walked into the living room, where the other boys were gathered in a circle, whispering.  Probably about me.  Liam looked up at me.  "Marie..." He started, "Eleanor called us, crying.  She told us what you said.  Yes, El's a model, Dani's a dancer, and Perrie's a singer.  But that is NOT why we love them.  We like them for what is inside.  That is what counts.  Marie, you are beautiful inside and out.  That's why Niall loves you."  He then threw his hand over his mouth, as if he had said to much.  Wait, Niall loves me?  I turn around to see him standing in the doorway, face red.  I smile at him.  "Finally."  He said, "You're smiling at me, not at the ground.  I'm sure I appriciate it much more!"  He then wrapped me up in a big Niall hug.

"Let's go out, love.  Just you and me?"  He whispered in my ear.  Oh.  My. Gosh.  I think Niall Horan just asked me on a date.  Inside I was screaming, but outside, I tried playing it cool.  I immediatly thought of One Thing.  I've tried playing it cool, but when I'm looking at you, I can't ever be brave, 'cuz you make my heart race.  That summed up my fellings for Niall at the moment.  I gave him a discreet nod, then we pulled out of the hug.  Niall walked over to where the boys were gathered, and stood where none of them could see him.  He hald up 8 fingers. Then, he gave sign language for park.  So, 8:00 at the park.  That would be good.  I suddenly remembered Louis phone, which was still in my hands.  "I'm going to go appoligize to El, okay?  Talk later!"  I said, walking to my room.  I dialed El's number.  She picked up on the second ring.

"Boobear!"  She said.

"Nope, just me.  I'm using his phone." I said.

"Marie, I'm so glad to hear your voice at a normal volume!"  She joked, trying to lighten the mood.

"Yeah.  I'm really sorry about that.  I don't know what came over me."

"Don't worry about it.  But, you need to know this.  You are not a los-"  I cut her off.

"I know.  The boys have already talked to me about it."  I said.

"Good!"  She sounded relieved.  "Let's go to dinner tonight, just you and me?  As a girl's night?" She asked.

"Can't.  I have a date."

"WITH NIALL!" She squealled.  "I KNEW IT!"

I laughed.  "Bye, El!"

"Have fun!  Bye!"

With that, I closed the phone.  I walked into the living room, and gave Louis his phone back.  I looked at the clock.  7:30.  Shoot!  I only have a half hour to get ready now!  I ran into my room, and got ready.
