Gotta Be You

I know how they both feel and now all that’s left to do is to find out how I feel.

And right now, my heart is stuck in the middle of a tug-o-war. Niall pulling hard on one side and Harry pulling just as hard on the other.


21. Another Flashback

Niall’s POV


I have been waiting for this day for a long time. I get to spend the whole day with Isla. Zayn, Louis and Liam all made plans with their girlfriends and Harry had plans with his mom, so I asked Isla if she wanted to spend the day with me.

I finished getting ready and I was on my way to Isla and Harry’s place. I arrived at the house and checked myself in the mirror before I got out and walked up to the front door. I took a deep breath and then knocked on the door.

Isla opened the door and the second that she did, I smiled from ear to ear. Immediately, she put her arms around me and I could smell the Japanese Cherry Blossom lotion that she always wears. Instantly, it brought back memories of when I would hold her and then smelling the perfume when it would stick to my clothes.

“Ni-Ni, how are you?” she asked me as she stopped the hug and pulled me inside the house.

“I’m great. Excited for today,” I answered still smiling.

“Me, too!” she exclaimed, “what are we doing today?”

“It’s a surprise,” I said.

She groaned but then she smiled again, “it just sucks that we can’t go out.”

“Yeah, I know. That’s why I have a fun day planned for us,” I said. “First, we are going to bake.”

She laughed and said, “why am I not surprised that the first thing you have planned involves food?”

“Because you know me too well,” I replied.

“Well, let’s start!” she said excitedly.

We walked into the kitchen and gathered all of the things that we’d need. We also put on music. We got all of the ingredients mixed together; we were just waiting for the oven to preheat.

“Oh, I need to sneeze,” Isla said. Her face scrunched up and she put her hand up to her face to block the sneeze. She faced me and when she sneezed she opened her hand and blew flour straight at my face.

I stood there shocked as she started laughing her head off.

“Oh, you think that’s funny?” I said with a grin on my face. I ran a finger into the batter and faced her.

“You wouldn’t,” she said, still laughing.

“Oh, I would,” I said, raising my eyebrows at her.

She backed away slowly as I walked towards her. She stopped against the wall and grabbed my wrist to stop me.

“Niall, no,” she said threateningly.

I just smiled at her as my wrist slowly made its way towards her face.

“Niall, plea--” she got cut off as I ran my battered finger over her nose. Her mouth opened into a wide ‘O’ shape as she stared at me with a dumbfounded expression.

“I can’t believe you did that,” she said to me.

“Well, it was only fai--”, I started to say but somehow she had grabbed a can of whipped cream and sprayed it on the top of my head and on my face.

“I’m sorry, what were you saying?” she said sarcastically before she started giggling.

I thought of something to get her back so I took both of hands and scraped some of the whipped cream off of my hair and smothered it on her cheeks.

By now, me and Isla treated this as a fun experience and we started laughing. She grabbed the can of whipped cream again and sprayed it non-stop on me wherever she could get. I turned around and grabbed the bowl of cake batter and was about to turn towards Isla again but she jumped on my back and smushed an egg on my head. I grabbed a handful of batter and reached over my head and wiped it all over her hair. She screamed as she jumped off of my back and grabbed the bag of flour. We stood in front of each other, laughing and breathing hard, ready to take the next move.

However, we had both decided to take the next move at the same time and we threw the bag of flour and cake batter at each other at the same time. The cake batter and bag of flour went all over our clothes and on the floor. I walked up to her but I stepped over the cake batter and flour on the floor and lost my balance. I grabbed onto Isla to try and prevent myself from falling but she stepped on the mess on the floor too and soon enough we were both falling on the floor with her on top of me.

We couldn’t stop laughing as we looked at each other and saw how messy we got.

“You’re cleaning this up,” she said, still laughing.

“Uh, yeah right, you started this,” I said smiling.

“I did not,” she said.

“Yes, you did,” I replied.

“Yeah, well, you didn’t have to make it worse,” she joked. “How about we both clean it up?”

“Sounds fair,” I said. I stared up at her and it took all of my power from not leaning up and kissing her. I was almost about to when Isla decided to get up. She had a difficult time getting up and I couldn’t stop laughing at her.

“You think that’s funny? Let’s see you try,” she said, as she leaned against the counter for support.

I sat up and then went on my hands and knees as I tried to push myself up. But just like Isla, I had a hard time as I tried to keep my feet steady. Now it was her turn to laugh at me.

“Ha, ha, yeah, it’s so funny,” I said sarcastically. I was finally able to stand up and leaned against the counter just like Isla did.

“This definitely needs a picture,” she said as she wiped her hands on a towel and grabbed her phone from the counter. She took a picture of us covered in cake batter.

"I totally won that food fight," she said.

“Psh, I won that one,” I said.

“Keep thinking that, pretty boy,” she teased. “Alright, well we should clean up.”

I groaned.

“I think we should clean ourselves up first,” she said. “Take off your shoes so you don’t spread it around the house.” She took off her shoes as I did the same thing. Then we both carefully started walking to go change in her room.

“Stop! The cake batter is dripping off of us,” she suddenly said.

“Well, what are we supposed to do then?” I asked.

“Hm, we’re probably going to have to take off our clothes so we don’t mess up the rest of the house,” she suggested.

I blushed thinking about it and cleared my throat. Isla saw and giggled.

“Relax, we’re just gonna be taking off our shirts and pants. It’s just like we’re wearing our swimming clothes,” she said.

I cleared my throat, “Mhm, yeah, I knew that. Alright, well, I’ll let you go first. I can, umm, I can turn around while you, you know, do…that.” Oh god, I’m so embarrassed.

“Alright, but I really don’t mind,” she said as she started taking off her shirt. I quickly turned around. I was looking at the ground at first but then I looked up at the window and saw her reflection. She was taking off her pants and she didn’t realize that I could see her. I know that I shouldn’t but I couldn’t help it. She looked great and once again it took all of my will power from turning around, grabbing her and kissing her.

She faced towards me and I quickly looked away.

“Alright, I’m done,” she said from behind me, “I’ll go shower and change in my room and you can just go up to Harry’s and just borrow some of his clothes and take a shower in his bathroom.”

“Alright,” I said. I heard her leave and go upstairs before I started taking off my clothes. I bundled up my dirty clothes as I headed upstairs. I went into Harry’s room and grabbed a shirt and a pair of pants. I walked into his bathroom and took a shower.

20 minutes later I was ready and went downstairs to start cleaning up. Isla came down 15 minutes after me and we finished cleaning up.

“I am never having another food fight ever again,” I said, “that was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to clean.” We collapsed on the couch, tired from the cleanup.

“I agree,” she said. “Well, what do you have planned next?”

“Oh, I brought season 1 of The Big Bang Theory,” I said, grabbing it from my bag.

“Oh, yay,” she said. I popped the DVD into the player and sat down beside her. She rested her head on my shoulder and she draped a blanket over the both of us. I put my arm around her as we watched.

“Who would me and the boys be if we were the characters in the show?” I asked her.

“Hm, well, Louis is most like Sheldon, they both talk a lot. Zayn would be Raj because they’re weird at random times. Harry would be Howard because they’re both cheeky. And Liam would be Leonard because they’re the most normal ones,” she explained.

“I was thinking the same thing,” I said, laughing.

“So that would make you Penny,” she said. I looked at her and saw that she was trying to keep herself from laughing.

“What?” I asked incredulously.

“You’re like Penny,” she said.

“No, I’m not,” I said.

“Yes, you are. You’re both blonde, crazy and…dumb,” she said jokingly.

“Take it back,” I said, trying to seem hurt but I couldn’t help smiling.

“No, Penny,” she said, laughing. I decided to get back at her so I started to tickle her. She fell back on the couch, as she couldn’t stop laughing. I sat on top of her and continued to tickle her.

“Take it back,” I said again.


Isla’s POV


Niall was now on top of me, tickling me. I wanted him to stop but I couldn’t let him win.

“Take it back,” he said, with a smile on his face.

“No,” I said. I opened my eyes and looked up at him.




“Niall, don’t let go!” I said to Niall. He was teaching me how to skateboard while I was standing on top of it with him holding onto my waist beside me.

“Then how are you going to learn?” he said. “Here, let’s try this.” Suddenly, he jumped up on the skateboard behind me and wrapped his arms around me. I screamed as we lost our balance for a second but after a while we were able to maintain our balance.

“Are you okay?” he asked from behind me.

“I’m great,” I said, turning my head around and facing him, “I’m having so much fun.”

I stared up at him as he kept looking between me and the sidewalk, making sure that we didn’t run into anything. After a while, we just stared at each other and I reached my hand back and pulled his face towards mine as I kissed him. The adrenaline from skateboarding made the kiss 10 times better, sending butterflies all over my stomach.

Suddenly, I felt the skateboard stop from under us as me and Niall went flying forward. Luckily, we fell into the grass. We laughed as I turned onto my back with Niall on top of me.

“Never again,” I said, still laughing.

“Don’t lie, you enjoyed that,” he said, smiling at me.

“Alright, I did a little but only because I was with you,” I said. We stared at each other, still feeling the rush from the amazing kiss. I reached my hands up and cupped his face.

“I love you, Niall,” I said.

“I love you more, Isla, more than anything in the world,” he replied. He leaned down and placed his lips on mine as he kissed me softly and sweetly. I never wanted it to end. I had everything I wanted and I was happy.


~End of flashback~


“Isla, are you okay?” Niall asked me with a worried look on his face. I was still thinking about what had just happened. Was it real? Was it just my mind playing tricks on me?

“Isla?” he said. My eyes focused on him now, realizing where I was.

I cleared my throat. I slowly sat up as Niall got off of me. I sat properly on the couch but moved away from Niall.

“Um, let’s just continue watching the show,” I said, not looking at him.

“Are you alright?” he asked.

“Mhm,” I said, my voice sounding weird. I still hadn’t looked at him and I felt him looking at me for a while before sitting back and starting the DVD again. There was an awkward silence between us as we started watching the show again.

Well, I wasn’t paying attention to the show because whatever had played in my mind was the only thing I could think about.

What did it mean? If it was a memory, does it mean that me and Niall were together? What happened between me and Harry? Why are me and Harry back together? Was I cheating on Harry with Niall? No, I would never do that? So what the hell did it mean?

I definitely needed to talk to someone and I definitely needed answers.
