Niall’s POV: Once we ordered and sat down I kept glancing at Maria. There was just something about her that had me hooked. I kept looking at her, and once or twice I think I caught her looking back at me. She looked like she had been crying, her eyes were all red and puffy. Had what I said really been that bad? I felt awful. I stood up to go talk to her but Liam pulled me back down.

            “Is that really a good idea  mate?” he asked. My head was screaming no, but I really wanted to talk to her. So I got up and went and sat across from her. She looked at her food for a while and I just stared at her.

Finally she asked in a whisper “What do you want?” I wanted so many things, a good Nandos meal, more solos, a mic that wasn’t lowered, but right now, more than anything, I wanted to know Maria. To get to know her, and comfort her, and protect her from anything that might want to hurt her.

“I really am sorry for what I said earlier.” I whispered back. Her eyes teared up, and I thought she was going to run away again. Instead she just wiped her eyes with the napkin, smudging some of her already running eye makeup.

“I know you are. I overreacted in the field. I’m the one who should be sorry.” Her voice was soft, almost angelic. I could tell she wasn’t going to say anything else, but I wanted to know so much more. I saw her iphone on the table and picked it up. She gave me a confused look, but unlocked it when I handed it to her to plug in the password. I went into her contacts and added my number. Then I texted myself to get her number. Then I put her phone back down and went back to my table.
