A better life - One direction

My life is a mess. My only reason to be here, is my brother.
Oh, by the way. My name is Tracy Evans. My life isn't that exiting.
Well, at least I thought so..


4. Telling Niall.


Chapter 4.

Taylors P.O.V.

I woke up the next morning, finding myself laying in Kyle's arms. I laid my head on his chest and gave his body a little squeeze. “I love you, bro” I whispered, before I got out of his bed, and went downstairs.

I looked at the big clock hanging on the wall. 9:38am. A bit early, but I didn't want to go back to bed. 'Let's get the best out of the day' I thought to myself. I walked into the kitchen, and decided to make a big fat breakfast for me and Kyle.

I maked pancakes, scrambled eggs, bacon, French toast – and then to be a little healthy too I cut some strawberry’s, melon, and some other berry’s too. I made us some fresh orange juice, and put it all on the table.

The time was now 10:34am. I was just about to go wake up Kyle, but it was just like he was reading my mind, because just as I was walking to the kitchen door, he entered the room.

“Morning sis-wow!” He said surprised. "You made all this?” “No, Santa did” I joked. He chuckled, and sat down. “It looks great!” “Well, dig in!” I said.

We both started eating. I must say, I did a great job. It was really delicious. I guess Kyle thinks that too, 'cause when we finished eating, there was only one piece of bacon left, and only a little bit of eggs. Kyle leaned back in his seat, and started rubbing his stomach. “That was goooooooooooood” he sang.

“I'm gonna do the dishes” he said “NO you don't, I am!” I protested. (I know what you are thinking now ;) )

“NO I AM! You made the breakfast, and I'M doing the dishes! - I INSIST!” he said.. “Fine” I moaned. Even though I hate doing the dishes, I didn't want to make Kyle do it either.

So I decided to help him. As we stood there cleaning up the plates, I got an idea.

“Hey... What are you doing today?” I asked him. “Hm... Nothing. Why?”

“I was just thinking, that we could go get some ice cream?” “Great idea! And then we can maybe go shopping a little also? I really need some new clothes. And so do you” He suggested.

“What's that supposed to mean?” I giggled. “Well... You can always use some new clothes.. Are you going to say no to new clothes?!” He gasped. “HELL NO!” I shouted. “Well, it's settled then. Shall we go at... Let's say 12?” He said “Yeah, sounds good. I'm gonna go get ready then”

And by that I ran upstairs, to get some fresh clothes on, and do my hair and make-up.

I decided to wear a pair of skinny black jeans, a long white tank with little buttons in front, and a pair of brown low sneakers.

I grabbed my phone and a little shoulder bag, and went back downstairs to see if Kyle was ready. And of course he were. He's always ready before I am.

“Shall we go?” He said “Yes ma'am!” I joked We got into his car, and took of.

As we were driving, we agreed to wait to get an ice cream till we had finished shopping.

We started by shopping for Kyle. He wasn't much of a shopping guy, so that wouldn't last long.

We found him lots and lost of jeans, shorts, t-shirts, shirts, sweaters, hoodies, beanies, shoes and even some jewellery. I bought him a leather bracelet, and bought a little T to add on it. He immediately took it on, and gave me a kiss on the cheek.

Then it was my turn to shop. I think I got twice as much as Kylie did. T-shirts, shirts, jeans, shorts, leggings, dresses, heals, shoes, make-up, LOTS of jewellery, and things for my hair.

As we finished shopping, we agreed that it was time for some ice cream. We went to an ice cream stand, and got one for us both. We found a bench and sat down. “So I saw you coming home and saying goodbye to a guy yesterday” Kyle suddenly said. I looked down 'cause I started blushing. “Oh... Yeah” “Who is he?” He said with a protective voice. “He's just somebody I met at the park the other day” “Oh... Are you going to see him again?” “Yeah, tonight actually” I said with a big smile “Hm... Remember to tell him, that if he hurts you, your brother is gonna hurt his face” “Kyle please. He isn't gonna hurt me. We are not even dating” “You wish you were” He teased. I started blushing again “Maybe....” We both laughed a little, and continued eating our ice cream. It was a great day with Kyle. I love spending time with him, more than anything. He understands me in every way, maybe it's because he's my brother, and we are much like each other, I don't know.. But he do. He's like a best friend to my, just as much as he's my brother.

When we got home, I brought my bags upstairs and threw myself on the bed. I was so exhausted, shopping really makes you tired.

And it's good exercise too! Maybe I should do it more often.. If only I had the money. That reminded me, I need to get a job! Maybe on Starbucks? No... Then it would be weird coming down there when I'm not on work. Hm... My thoughts was interrupted by my phone buzzing.

'Hey Trace, I'll be at your house at 7pm to pick you up. Is that okay? Niall <3 xx'

I looked at the time. 4:55pm. I had lots of time.

'Hey Nialler, yeah that sounds good! I'll be ready... But uh.. What should I wear? Xx'

I was thinking about wearing one of my new dresses. But what if that would be to formal? My phone buzzed again.

'Something pretty. Maybe a dress.. Can't tell you what we're doing, it's a surprise. See you soon <3'

That's great! I'll wear my new black dress with laces, my new pair of silver heals, and some silver jewellery! Should I straighten my hair? Or curl it? I think I'm gonna curl it. Yeah. It's all planned!

I was trying to find my dress and heals from the bags, when there was a knock on the door. “Are you dressed?” Kyle asked “Yeah Kyle, come on in” I giggled. He opened the door and walked in. “I got something for you” he said. I got up from the ground, and walked over to him. He had his hands on his back. “What is it?” I said curiously. “Close your eyes” He demanded. I did as I was told, and just stood there waiting. “Okay, you can open them now” He said. I looked around.. Nothing. Is this a joke? “What is it, Kyle?” I asked a little irritated. “Look in the mirror” I walked to my mirror and immediately gasped. He had put a necklace around my neck. It was the most beautiful necklace I had ever seen. It had a heart on it, and in the heart there was a lot of diamonds. It was so pretty.

“When did you buy this one!?” I asked with my voice full of joy. “When we were in a shop, and you were looking at clothes and stuff. I sneaked away and bought it for you” He said proudly. I didn't know what to say. “But why?” I asked. “It so that you know, that no matter what you do, and no matter where you are... I'll always be with you” I seriously was speechless. His words rang in my ears. A big smile appeared on my face.

I ran over to him and gave him the biggest and longest hug ever. I rested my head on his chest, as I could feel the tears started to stream down my cheeks. But this time, not of sorrow. This time, the tears was of happiness. I was happy, that I had the greatest brother on earth. I was happy, that even though I had neither a mother, or a father left to comfort me, be there for me and make me smile, I'd always have my brother. My sweet, loving brother, Kyle. My everything.

“I love you, Kyle“ I whispered. “Love you to, Tracy. More than you will ever know” He said. It felt like we were standing there, hugging, for hours. Just hugging in silence. It was so nice. I loved being in his arms. But the hug had to end, I had to get ready!

I slowly pulled away, and dried the tears away from my face. “This is the best gift I've ever received” I said “I'm glad you like it” He said. And by that he left my room.

I just stood there for a couple of minutes. That moment, I made myself a promise. I was never, ever, ever taking this necklace of, ever again. 'Cause if I did, I'd take Kyle of me, I told myself.

I woke up from my day dream, and went back to my shopping bags. I found the little black dress, and the silver heals. I then started to get ready.

I just made the last curl, when I heard the doorbell.

“I'LL GET IT, KYLE!!!!!!!” I yelled at him, and ran downstairs.

“NOT IF I'LL GET IT FIRST!!!!!” I heard him yell back.

Oh god... PLEASE LET ME GET TO THE DOOR FIRST! It was a little difficult, running in my heals. But I seamed to be pretty fast, 'cause I got to the door 2 seconds before Kyle did. I immediately opened the door and was greeted by a smiling blond guy, standing on my doorstep.

“Hey, Niall! Come on in!” I said “Hey, Niall come on in” I heard Kyle tease from the kitchen. I think Niall heard him to, 'cause he started lauging. “Thank you” he said. I closed the door and led him to the kitchen. “Niall, this is my brother Kyle” Kyle stretched his hand out, and Niall immediately took it. “Nice too meet you” Niall said “You too” Kyle answered.

He was surprisingly nice too Niall, I've expected him a lot more like … Pretending to be my father.. You know what I mean?

“All right then.. Shall we go?” I said “Yes, I think we should” “I'll see you later, Kyle” I said “Sure.. Don't be out to late, lovebirds”

I gave him an angry look, and then turned to follow Niall. He put a hand on my waist and led me to his car.

“So, where are we going, Niall?” I asked. “I can't tell you! It's a surprise, remember?” I stuck out my bottomlip, trying to convince him “As hard as it is to stand for that cute face of yours, I won't tell you yet!” I blushed a little “UGH okay!”

He opened the passenger seat door for me, and I got in. He walked to the other side of the car, and got in, too.

“Mind if I turn on the radio?” He asked “No, go ahead” 'Shut the door, turn the light of, I wanna be with you, I wanna feel your love' My body froze by the sound of the that song playing. Niall did the total opposite, and let out a little chuckle. “Typical..” He said.

I felt the tears started to sting in my eyes. “Uh, Niall? Can turn it of? Or switch channel? Anything?” I begged. “What, why?!” He said surprised. “Just turn it off!” I shouted. He looked shocked, but turned the radio off immediately. I looked down, trying to hide my teary eyes, and to try to make the tears go away. “Hey, are you okay?” He said, putting his hand on my knee. “Yeah.. I'm sorry, I just.. Don't like that song” I said, still looking down at my legs. “Hey, hey.. It's okay” He said with a calm voice.

I took a deep breath and looked back up. “Wanna tell me why you don't like that song?” he asked “Uhm... No. I don't want to talk about it...” I said “Please?” He begged. I looked him in the eye, but immediately looked away again. I couldn't bare telling him.. I just couldn't. “Maybe later” I said, smiling at him. He let out a little sigh.

“I'm sorry... You don't have to tell me if you don't want to” “I wanna tell you... Just... Not right now” I said. He smiled, and I smiled back.

We sat in silence for a couple of minutes, when he broke it and said “We're here” I looked out the window. The streets were busy, but not as much as in the middle of the day. He opened the door for me, and stretched his hand out for me to grab it. I took the hint, and put my hand in his. He immediately slipped his fingers in-between mine, just like he did the other day at the walk. The butterflies once again started to go act wild in my stomach.

“You look really beautiful, Trace” he said My cheeks immediately turned red, and a big smile grew on my face, as I looked to the ground. “I love when you do that” He said “Do what?” “Blush, then smile, and then look to the ground.. It's so adorable” I did exactly as he just described once again. “Stop it” I said He chuckled a little. “All right, close your eyes” he said “What? Why?” I got a little confused “You'll see. Trust me” I did as he said, and closed my eyes. For the second time today...

I felt him grabbing my other hand, so that he was now holding both of our hands. He slowly dragged me with him.

“Okay .. Open your eyes” As I did so, my jaw dropped. Oh my god. This was amazing. I was looking at a big restaurant.. No a big EMPTY restaurant. In the middle of it, there was a little table for two, with candles, and a red rose at the middle. The light in there was dimmed down, to make a very romantic atmosphere in the room.

“Oh my god.. Niall..” I was absolutely out of words. He did all of that for me? “You like it?” He asked “No … “ I saw his face drop as I said it. “I love it” I said.

He let out a sigh of relief. I gave him a quick kiss on the cheek, and he immediately blushed. “You're cute when you do that, too” I teased. He let out a little chuckle. He was so cute. We walked to the table, and it was even more amazing the closer you were to it. Niall held out my chair for me, and I smiled and sat down. He got to his seat too.

We ordered the food and drinks, and started talking. I kindda felt guilty for what I said in the car before.. I felt like I owed him a explanation.

“About that in the car... I'm really sorry” I said “Please love, don't worry about it. I understand if there's something you don't want to tell me” “No but.. I want to tell you. I feel like I owe you to know. I don't know why” “You don't owe me anything.. But if you want to tell me, just tell me. I wanna hear it” He said with a little smile. “Okay..” I took a deep breath. “My mum... She died 3 years ago.. Of cancer, and. Well..” I shrugged my shoulders. “Oh my god, Tracy. I'm so sorry.” he took my hand and gave it a little squeeze. “No no, it's okay. But.. That song in the radio... It was played at her funeral. So every time I hear it, it makes all the memories appear in my head. But not the good ones. Only the ones from the time she was at the hospital, and from the funeral..” He just sat there, staring at me. His eyes was full of pity, and at the same time guilt. I don't know why.. “That's awful... I'm really sorry Trace. I really am” “It's okay. I'm okay..” I assured him. “But Tracy... I need to tell you something” he said, grabbing both of my hands now. “What is it?” “Well, you know that band I'm in, right?” “Right?” I said “Well... That song … It's ours. We made it”

Oh my god. Memories suddenly filled my head. I remember looking at the schedule in the church, and the song called 'Moments' was set just after the priests speech. And that's when it hit me. The schedule said 'Moments – One Direction'. That's it! I knew I've heard the name before, when Niall told me about his band the other day. I felt the tears stinging in my eyes.

“Oh... “ Was all that I could manage to say. He squeezed my hands. “You okay, love?” he asked “Yeah. It's just hard to talk about” I looked down, as a tear escaped my eye. Niall quickly rose from his chair and got to my side of the table.

“Heey, hey.. Shh. It's okay” He embraced me in a big and loving hug. He pulled away and looked me in the eyes. He then dried the tear away with his thumb, in one gently slide. “Thank you for telling me” he said with a little smile. I smiled back at him. He slid his hand though my hair, our faces only inches apart. “Trace... I need to tell you something else” “Okay, just tell me” I whispered, looking him in the eye. “I... I think I'm in love with you”
