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.


56. Forever

Isla’s POV


I woke up with a pair of arms wrapped around me. I opened my eyes and looked up to see Niall sleeping peacefully beside me. It was his birthday and I was excited for today. Since we celebrated with everyone at his surprise party, today, it was just going to be me and him. I wanted to make this day special, starting now.

So I leaned forward and placed my lips lightly on his. After a few seconds, I could feel his lips move slightly against mine. His arms tightened around, pressing me against him. I took my hand and rested it on the side of his face as he was now completely awake and kissing me tenderly.

“Happy birthday, Niall,” I mumbled against his lips.

He hummed before ending the kiss and looking at me. “Thank you. My birthday is already starting perfectly.” He gave me a smile before he closed his eyes and buried his face into my neck, his breath tickling me.

“I’m excited for today,” I said. I couldn’t help the smile that crept on my face in anticipation for spending the whole day with Niall for his birthday.

“Me, too. I have something special planned for later tonight.”

“What is it?” I asked excitedly.

He chuckled. “It’s a surprise.”

“A surprise? But it’s your birthday.” I laughed as Niall pulled back to look at me again.

“I wanted to make this day special for the both of us since I’m leaving for tour soon and I won’t be here for your birthday.” He looked at me with sad eyes.

We’ve been trying to spend as much time together as possible since him and the rest of the boys were going away on tour in a month. I’ve been dreading the day that he’s going to leave but I always try to put it out of my mind so that I can only focus on spending every possible second with Niall.

“That’s sweet, Ni.” I couldn’t help feeling sad at the thought that our time was getting shorter and shorter by the second and I rested my head on his shoulder to hide it from Niall. He could probably sense it as he started rubbing my back up and down slowly, soothing me instantly.

“Let’s not think about that right now. I want today to be perfect.”

“Shall we get ready? It’s almost noon and I was hoping we’d go for a walk through the park.”

“Sure,” he said.

I was expecting him to let me go but he just tightened his grip around my waist.

“Niall.” I giggled. He wouldn’t move. I looked up at him and saw him pretending to sleep as he had a hint of a smile on his face.

“Niall, let’s go get ready.” I tried to sound serious but failed as I laughed.

He suddenly puckered his lips. “Kiss me first.”

I rolled my eyes even though he still had his eyes closed before I leaned forward and gave him a small peck on the lips, teasing him. His eyes shot open and he frowned at me as I grinned at him.

“That was not acceptable.”

“And what is an acceptable kiss?”

“Like this…” he said before he closed his eyes and placed his lips on mine. He pulled me closer to him as the kiss grew more passionate, his lips moving urgently against mine. When I ran my fingers through his hair, he groaned and ran his tongue lightly against my bottom lip. I granted him access as his tongue entered my mouth. He rolled us over so his body was on top of mine, one of his arms being used to support his body above me and the other one rubbing against my waist. I shifted so that Niall was resting in between my legs before taking my hands and rubbing it over his bare back.

As my mind was starting to cloud with every touch I felt from Niall, I realized how much I want to show him that he’s my everything and that he’s the one that holds my heart. I didn’t want it to seem like I was only going to do this because it was his birthday but right now, I felt like it was the perfect time. I’ve told him that I wanted to take things slow but right now, we didn’t have that much time left before he left and I wanted him to know how much he means to me.

“I want you, Niall.”

His lips froze before he pulled back and looked at me, passion and love filling his features.

He remained silent as his hand went up to the side of my face, his thumb lightly rubbing my cheek.

“Are you sure?” he whispered, as he looked at me intently.

All I did was nod as I gave him a small smile.

Even though we’ve made love before, it was all but a memory. I felt like this time would still be special and perfect.

He returned my smile before slowly leaning down and pressing his lips against mine. The kiss remained slow and tender before Niall slowly trailed his hand back down to my waist. He placed his hand underneath my tank top, rubbing the skin on my waist and stomach. My fingertips continued to trace long lines along his back as he dropped down so our bodies were now completely meshed together. His hand that was previously supporting him was now resting underneath my thigh, pulling it up so my leg was wrapped around his waist.

I rolled us over so that I was now on top before I sat up, straddling his waist. He looked at me, his breaths hard and labored as I took my top off and throwing it on the floor beside the bed. I was now left in only my panties before I moved down to kiss Niall again. His hands rubbed across my waist, his fingers occasionally grazing underneath the hem of my underwear. As I started to move my body against him, I could feel him getting excited from underneath me before I sat up against, resting my knees to reach down and pull down his boxers. Both of us were now breathing hard before Niall grabbed my waist, rolling us over again so that I was on the bottom. He reached down to slowly pull down my underwear, his eyes never leaving mine as he did so.

Once we were completely rid of all of our clothes, he rested his body against mine as I wrapped my legs around him.

“I love you so much, Isla.” He looked at me with so much love in his eyes, more than I’ve ever seen anyone give me before. It left me flustered for a few seconds before I was able to make words come out of my mouth.

“I love you, too.”

He immediately placed his lips on mine, a new sense of urgency growing in both of us as the kiss deepened in seconds.

One of his hands went to one of my breasts, earning a groan from me as he started squeezing lightly. Not being able to control myself, my nails raked down his back. It seemed to pleasure him as he moaned against the kiss.

His lips suddenly left mine before he moved to my neck in less than a second and started sucking on the sensitive skin. I was able to catch my breath as I wrapped my legs tighter around him. Niall left a couple of love bites before I started to crave the taste of his lips. So I grabbed his face in both of my hands and pulled him to me. I raked my fingers through his soft hair as his hands went back to working magic against my waist and my thigh.

“Niall.” I breathed against the kiss. I needed him now; I was starting to lose control. He understood what I meant because he lifted himself slightly off of my body to grab a condom before quickly slipping it on. He descended once again but he was now connected to me. I breathed out as I felt him inside of me, my eyes shutting tightly at the unexplainable feeling.

“Open your eyes and look at me, Isla.” Both of our breaths started to quicken as I slowly opened my eyes to look into Niall’s bright blue, slightly dilated eyes looking down at me.

Nothing else was said before he started moving against me, the pleasure growing inside of me at each thrust. The pleasure seemed to be heightened just by looking at each other, our thoughts only focusing on each other.

He was now moving against me harder and faster before we became undone at the same time. I couldn’t help it; I pulled him against me, his face resting in the crook of my neck. The pleasure continued to roll throughout my body, causing me to shake underneath Niall’s body. What felt like hours later, we both came off of our high but we remained where we were, waiting for our breathing to go back to normal.

He gave me multiple pecks on my shoulder before pulling himself up to rest on his elbow and brushing his other hand through my hair.

“That was…amazing,” he said, shaking his head in disbelief.

I couldn’t help but smile up at him. “It was perfect.”

We remained silent for a few minutes, just looking at each other, Niall brushing hair fingers through my hair, my fingertips lightly running over his back.

“So that was an acceptable kiss?” I teased.

He laughed before going on all fours and hovering over me. “Yes, I expect us to kiss like that all the time now.” He gave me a wink before I rolled my eyes at him.

“Let’s go get ready.” I playfully pushed him off of me before swinging my legs over the edge of the bed. I pulled the sheet off of the bed and wrapped it around my body. I was about to head to the bathroom before Niall grabbed my wrist and pulled me back.

“One more kiss.”

Before I could protest, he placed his lips on my and gave me a sweet kiss. He pulled back and smiled at me. His kisses still gave me butterflies.

“Now go get ready. And wear something nice for tonight.”

I grew curious as to what Niall had planned but I knew that I wouldn’t get an answer out of him if I asked him what it was so I just turned around and headed to the bathroom to get ready for this day.




“Just don’t pay attention to them, babe.”

I was trying to reassure Niall since we got to the park but he was still frustrated about the paparazzi following us around. We were walking along the pathway hand-in-hand but about half an hour ago, a couple of paparazzi appeared and have been following us since their arrival. They were keeping their distance but it was still bothering Niall.

“I just wanted today to be perfect and they’re ruining it.”

“Today is going perfectly, Niall. You’re just letting them get to you, don’t let them. Just ignore them.”

His face softened slightly as he nodded and we continued to walk through the park.

It was a beautiful day, the sun was shining and the sky was clear. I refused to let the paparazzi ruin our day.

“So, are you excited to go on tour again?” I asked. I was trying to take his mind off of the paparazzi and it seemed to work as his face brightened.

“Yeah, I can’t wait to meet the fans and to see new places.” Suddenly, his face faltered. “But I’m going to miss you so much.”

“I’m going to miss you, too. But you’ll have some days off so you better come home and visit me.” I poked him in the side of his stomach causing him to flinch and laugh.

“Of course I will. Even though I’m happy for you that you’ve started university, I just wish that you had some time off to visit me. I’m sure you’d love to see the places we visit.”

I just accepted into University of Manchester, the same one that El goes to, and both of us started last week. I was excited and I was also glad that El is there with me.

“I’m sure me and El will come visit you guys whenever we can.”

“You better.” He gave me a grin before he faced forward again. Suddenly, a paparazzi came out of no where right in front of us and started snapping pictures like crazy. It startled me causing me to cling to Niall’s arm.

I could feel Niall tense up and I looked up at him and saw his face reddening.

“Niall, it’s okay. Let’s just go.” I tried to calm him down before he did something he would regret. I pulled on his arm and led us to the entrance of the park and towards his car. He opened the door for me before closing it. I watched him through the window as he turned around and faced the paparazzi that had followed us. He was still taking pictures, not giving a care that he was invading our personal space. I could hear Niall saying something but it was all mumbled as the sound was muffled against the barrier of the window. The paparazzi didn’t respond to what Niall was saying.

Right as I was about to get out of the car to see what was happening, Niall walked around the car before getting in.

I looked at him hesitantly as his face remained unreadable.

“What happened?”

He took a deep breath before starting the car and driving off.

“I just told him that it was incredibly disrespectful what he was doing. I told him that it was fine that he was taking pictures but he didn’t need to be so close. He was right in our face. And it upset me that he scared you. I just wanted him to know that but I guess he didn’t even listen or care.” He shrugged.

“I’m sorry, Niall.” I placed my hand on his leg, trying to sooth him. It worked because he smiled and took my hand in his.

“It’s okay. Let’s not worry about it anymore.”

I nodded before looking out the front window again.

“Are you ready for dinner? Our reservation is at 5.”

“Yes, I’m starving!”

He chuckled at me and gave my hand a gentle squeeze.

We drove to the restaurant and he parked the car once we got there. He opened the door for me and helped me out before leading us to the entrance of the fancy restaurant.

We walked in and we were led to our table near the back of the restaurant, which was in the area that was more private than the front.

So we spent the dinner just talking about anything and everything. We talked about the tour, their new music, my classes and then we tried to figure out how often we’d get to see each other while he was away on tour. We realized that we wouldn’t be able to see each other as much as we wanted to but I reassured him that we should be grateful that we get to see each other at all. It seemed to lessen his worries as he spent the rest of dinner holding my hand.

After we finished dessert, he paid the check.

“Shall we go? It’s time for your surprise.” He smiled at me as he stood up and grab his jacket from the back of his chair.

“Yes,” I said excitedly as I followed suit and stood up. I put on my dark blue trench coat and grabbed his outstretched hand. We exited the restaurant and got into the car before he drove off and headed home.




“Okay, open your eyes.”

I opened my eyes and rested my sights on the beautifully decorated backyard of our place. A gazebo was placed in the middle of the yard that had lights hung on the roof. There were lanterns hung on a wire that ran from one end of the yard to the other. There were roses and bouquets of lilies placed around the railing of the gazebo.

It was breathtaking.

“This is beautiful, Niall.” I said breathlessly.

“Babe, this isn’t even the best part.” He smiled at me before he pulled me closer to the gazebo. He stopped right in front of the gazebo and he turned around to face me.

“Do you remember how we met?” he asked. He was starting to look nervous as he looked at me.

“Of course I remember. We met at Dani’s party.” I smiled up at him.

“Yes but do you remember exactly what happened the second that we met?”

I scrunched my eyebrows in confusion and wonder as I tried to remember.

“I was looking up at the stars and you came over and talked to me.”

His smile grew but he so did his nervousness.

“Yes. So what better way to do this than to relive that moment.”

“What do you mean?”

He took a deep breath before looking up at the stars. “Look up, babe.”

I slowly looked up at the stars and my breath caught in my throat. Lighten up in the stars from what I’m guessing was a projector, were some of the most beautiful words I’ve ever heard.


Tears formed in my eyes as I read the words again and again, my heart swelling at each word. I felt Niall let go of my hands so I looked back down to look at him. However, as I looked down at him hands, I felt my heart skip, I started to shake and my breath caught in my throat.

In his hands was a small velvet box.

I gasped as he opened it and a ring with three stones connected by a silver band. There was a diamond ring in the middle that was bigger than the one on either side of it. On the left, was Niall’s birthstone and on the other side, was mine. One of my hands shot up to cover my mouth before I looked back up at him.

I didn’t know what to think.

“Before you start freaking out, I want you to know that I’m not proposing to you. I mean, not yet.” He stuttered as he talked and I found it adorable how nervous he was. I knew he wasn’t proposing to me as he wasn’t down on one knee and the ring wasn’t a typical engagement ring.

But I was still incredibly excited.

“This is a promise ring. I wanted to give you this because I want you to know how much I love you, how much I care about you and that I’d be nothing without you. I want you to know that even though we’re going to be apart for long periods of time, my love for you will never die. I will always love you. I want this ring to represent everything that’s happened to us but, most importantly, I want this ring to show that I am yours and you are mine. You’re my soul mate, you’re my other half, you’re the one that I want to spend the rest of my life with. I want this ring to show you that I will marry you when the time is right. I want you to have this ring and when you wear it and look at it, I want you to know that I will always be thinking of you, I will always be here for you, I will always be here to make you happy, I will always be here for everything. I love you so much. I say it a lot but now, I wanted to show you. I can’t wait to show you how much I love you; for the rest of my life. So, Isla Lorena Abbott, will you accept this ring as a symbol of my love for you?”

Tears escaped my eyes as I frantically nodded my head. “Yes! Yes! A million times yes!”

I was shaking like a leaf as Niall placed the ring on the ring finger of my right hand. I smiled as Niall looked up at me before I wrapped my arms around his neck. He put his around my waist before he lifted my up and spun me around. Once he stopped, he placed me down and pulled back to look at me.

Not wasting any more time, he placed his lips on mine. This kiss was the same as our other kissed but it was different at the same time. It still held the same amount of love but now it was magnified. It took my breath away. I could feel Niall’s love radiating through the kiss and I wanted him to feel it from mine as well.

Today was the perfect day. We spent this day together because we see the dreadful day of him leaving coming closer and closer. But now, after this, I feel like I have an infinite amount of time with him. There were no more counting down of days until he leaves and when he comes back. It was now counting the days that we’ve loved each other.

We have now promised to stay together forever and forever still seemed too short.

But I know that forever with Niall is the best thing that’s going to happen to me.

He pulled away and rested his forehead against mine.

“I know I’ve said it a million times and I know that I’m going to say it a million times more, I love you, Isla.”

My heart swelled until it felt like it was going to burst out of my chest.

“I love you, too, Niall. Forever”


And forever started now.





So this is the end of Gotta Be You :( excuse me while I cry :'(

I am incredibly sad that this story ended but like I promised, there will be a sequel! And I already have a lot of drama planned out for it ;)

A lot of people wanted the sequel so I think I'm going to write that but I was kind of wanting to write something different so I might write a Harry fanfic next. I still have to decide.

Now, I want to take this time to thank each and every one of you who have read, commented, favourited and fanned me since the beginning. My story wouldn't be where it is now without you guys. It's because of you guys that I look forward to writing and I appreciate you guys telling me how much you like the story. Never in a million years did I think that this story would get it to where it was now, especially when I first started writing it. I only started writing the story because it was just a little idea in my head and I didn't even continue writing it. But then a few people commented asking me to continue and it made me happy :)

I met so many amazing people from here and through kik.

So thank you a million times for everything and I hope that you guys will enjoy my future fanfics :)
