I gasped. "Oh Niall!" he had taken me to my favorite spot in all of Ireland. Emerald cove was a place only Niall knew about, he discovered it when he was about 5, while he was riding his bike. There is a lake about 6 feet deep of cold, crisp, crystal clear water. The grass and trees are emerald green. Everything is so rich ad healthy, it made you feel at home. I spun around and hugged him, pulling him as close as my belly would let me. "Oh Niall thank you! I've missed this place soooo much!" I squealed. "Go exploring!" he laughed, and set up the red and white checkered blanket. I wandered around the edge of the water, taking my time. I could feel Niall's eyes watching my every move. I squatted down and watched the fish swim in the water. I looked up after about five minutes, and saw a glint in the trees. Strange, I heard a click, a flash of blonde hair and a bang.
I heard the shot fire, and I panicked. I saw Julia grab her arm and start to run towards me. I bolted towards her and scooped her up. "The bullet grazed my arm," she said calmly. She lifted her hand away and revealed a small cut, barely bleeding. "Oh babe! Your very lucky!" I huffed. The adrenaline rush I have gave me strength, I pulled her closer to me and ran faster, each step carrying us closer to safety. I heard the bullet strike the ground behind me, right were my foot just was. I had planned this out so perfectly, but it was all ruined. My secret hiding spot had been discovered, I felt the tears building behind my eyes but I shook them away. This was no time for that, I had to get Julia and my baby to safety.
I looked behind me and saw nothing, and charged forward. I ran past the blanket, and slipped onto the path. I slowed down to a jog, and looked down at Julia. Her body was light, and she was a little paler than normal. "Niall... Get me to the hospital.. NOW!" she screamed. She looked up at me and I knew what she meant. It was time for my baby to be born. My beautiful daughter is going to come into the world. My cheeks blushed red, and a tear slipped down my cheek. She smiled the best smile she could manage and wiped away the tear. I opened the car door and placed her inside, buckled her up and ran to my side. I heard a rustling in the bushes, and I turned as I got in the car and saw two green eyes staring at me. "Casey..." I whispered. "What?" Julia asked me. "Casey is in the bushes, she followed us here and tried to kill you!" I screeched as I killed the gas pedal.
The escalade jerked forward and shot down the road. "We have to get out of here and to the hospital as fast as possible." I spit out. Julia flopped her head over at me,"Duh!" she said, quite angrily. I weaved the big SUV down all the shortcuts I knew, and flew down the highways. As we pulled into the parking lot I quickly shifted gears and turned off the car. Julia slowly opened her door and unbuckled. She gingerly set each foot on the ground, and looked up. No paparazzi, a sigh of relief.
I ran around and shit her door, locked the door and picked her up bridal style. I walked as fast as I could into the main lobby of the ER. I walked to the desk to see a young woman, "Um hello I'm Niall Horan and my wife is having a baby right now so yeah.." Her head popped up as I said my name. I knew she was a fan. "Ladies! Baby delivery!" she screamed. Soon enough two older ladies came through the swinging doors, pushing a wheel chair. I gently set her down in the chair and kisses her sweaty forehead. "I'm gonna go call the boys. I'll be right there!" I smiled down at her. She nodded, reached up and put her sugar pink lips to mine pulled back and smiled...
