My Rock

Maria is a 16 year old girl who lost her brother in a car crash. Her father blamed her and turned to alcohol. He abuses her when he's drunk. Her mom is subject to emotional break downs and can't be there to defend Maria some times. Just as Maria is about to give up hope she meets the One Direction boys, and finds something to keep her going. And who knows? She might just find a little romance in the process.


17. My Rock

Niall’s POV: *Saturday* This is it. The day I convince Maria she’s good at singing. And hopefully I can do more than that, but we’ll have to wait and see. I called her up and asked if she’d like to come over to watch a film. She readily accepted. Great! My plan was underway.

                She hadn’t been to my flat before, so she wouldn’t think it was odd that I had a grand piano in the dining room. She would think it’s always there, while anyone who had been here before would ask if I was crazy or redecorating. When she knocked on the door I let her in. I gave her a tour of the house, making sure the last room I showed her was the dining room.

                “And this is the dining room, but I use it for my piano, because I have no use of a dining room.” I told her. She had an amazed look across her face. It was a really nice piano if I do say so myself. She asked if she could play it and I told her “Of course!” My plan was going well so far.

Maria’s POV: He had the best piano I had ever seen!! I looked like it played perfectly. I asked if I could play a little. “Of course!” was his response. Like he had been counting on me asking. I didn’t think twice about it though. I just really wanted to play.

                I sat down and started playing Mozart.  Once I finished I looked at Niall. He looked a bit upset.

                “What’s up Niall? Is something wrong?”

                “Oh no. It was beautiful. I was just hoping to hear you play something maybe from this century.”

                Hmm this century. I can do that. I sat down at the piano again and started playing Good Time by Owl City and Carly Rae Jepson. I was singing too, I don’t know why though. I suck. I probably ruined my piano playing with my voice. Once I finished I turned around. Niall was looking at me with a huge smile.

                “You were amazing! I don’t know why you think you can’t sing. Come on, let’s go watch that film.”
