10. A day without you is like a year without rain


Catherine’s POV

I woke up the next morning with a killer hangover and my eyes red and swollen. I felt and looked like death. Everything that happened with Niall last night kept running through my head. The way he yelled at me and told me I was a drunken slut. The way I saw him kissing that girl. I felt like I was going to throw up. I started feeling really guilty about my kiss with Harry too, even though I shouldn’t feel bad about that at this point. I decided I was going to take a shower and then sit in bed all day watching movies and eat my feelings. Yep sounded like a good plan to me.

I rolled out of bed and took a fast shower, got changed into some sweatpants and a t- shirt and ran to the kitchen to get some food. Ok well maybe I went and got a lot of food but I was upset and hungry. Sue me. I went back into my room shut the door and turned off my phone so no one could bother me and started watching the Notebook.


Three movies and five bags of chips later I started to forget what happened last night a little bit. I looked over at my alarm clock to see what the time was. It was 4 o’clock. I decided to come out of my cave and see what Paige and Mair were doing since I haven’t seen anyone all day. They both knew what had happened and made the wise choice of letting me be alone for the day.

“Hey guys.” I said walking into Paige’s room and sitting at the end of her bed. Her and Mairead were getting ready to go out.

“You’re finally out of bed?” Mair said turning around it shock.

“Yeah. I got bored. Where are you guys going?”

“We’re going on a double date with Zayn and Louis.” Paige said while she was looking in her closet for something to wear. “Do you want me to call Lou and ask him to bring a friend for you?”

“No I think I’m just gonna stay here and get Chinese takeout or something.”

“You know you can’t sit in your room watching movies all day forever.” Mairead said.

“Challenged accepted.” I said laying my head back on a pillow.

“Has Niall texted you at all?” Paige said from the bathroom.

“I dunno.” I said shrugging my shoulders. “I turned off my phone.”

“You guys are going to have to talk about what happened eventually. I mean either way we’re all still friends and you’re gonna have to see each other all the time.” Mair said touching up her make up

Crap. She was right. I can’t avoid the kid for the rest of my life. Why does life have to be so complicated?

“Ugh fine.” I said getting up off the bed. “I’ll try to talk to him when you guys are out, ok?” They both nodded their heads.

“Good. Now go get changed so you can go talk to him. We’ll have Zayn and Louis drive you to their house when they come to pick us up.” Paige said

I walked back into my room and did my hair and makeup real quick and started looking for an outfit to wear. My stomach was in knots because I was so nervous. I don’t even know why I was putting myself through all of this. I should’ve just locked myself in my room and made no contact with anyone today. If I tried doing that now Paige and Mairead would find a way to break down my door and drag me to the boys’ house by my ankles. I suck.

The doorbell rang and I heard the girls greeting the boys. I was just finished getting changed so I had to go out there. Why me.  I looked in the mirror one last time to make sure I look presentable.

“Well this is about as good as it’s gonna get.” I said looking at myself in the mirror.

“Come on Cat, don’t make me go in there and pull you by your hair out of that room.” Mairead said. See I’m not making this stuff up. They will both physically drag me to go see Niall.

“I’m coming Mair calm down.” I said as I grabbed my phone and walked out of my room.

“Hey Cat.” Louis and Zayn both said as I walked over to the door where everyone was standing.

“Hey guys.”

We all walked out of the flat and down to where Louis and Zayn parked their car. Louis drove and Paige sat next to him in the passengers seat. Mairead, Zayn and I all sat in the back of the car. I turned on my phone to see if anyone had texted me. No one did. Why am I so popular? Everyone in the car was talking and listening to music but I just sat there, looking out of the window. I could tell this was going to be the fastest car ride of my life since I was dreading what was to come.

-10 minutes later-

We pulled up in front of the boys’ house.

“Good luck.” Paige said turning around to look at me.

“Don’t worry so much Cat. Niall likes you. This isn’t going to be as bad as you think.” Zayn said in all seriousness.

The way everyone was talking to me made me feel like I was about to go on death row.

“Bye Boo.” Mair said pulling me into a hug.

“Bye Cat.” Louis said turning around to look at me too.

“Bye guys. And thanks for the ride.” I said as I shut the door and slowly walked over to the steps leading up to the front door.

I heard the car pull away so now I was alone just staring at the door. I mean if no one is watching me I could just make a run for it right? I was seriously considering it for a few seconds until someone opened the door.

“Hey! I thought I saw someone pull up in front of the house a minute ago.” It was Harry standing at the door.

“Hey Harry.” I said trying to look happy even though I felt like I was going to throw up. “Louis dropped me off before they all went out on their double date.”

“Oh I see.” He said nodding his head. “Come inside.”

I walked inside and followed Harry into the kitchen.

“Do you want anything to drink or eat?” He said looking in the refrigerator.

“No, I’m fine.” I said sitting down. “Listen… about last night…”

“We were both just having a good time. It was a mistake. Let’s just forget about it, okay?” He said laughing a little bit.

“Agreed.” I said now feeling a little better. I mean at least Harry felt the same way I did and just wants to stay friends.

Well that’s one awkward conversation I get to cross off my list tonight.

“Do you know where Niall is by any chance?” I said trying to change the conversation.

“I think he’s in his room. I haven’t seen much of him all day.”

“Ok thanks.” I said getting up and walking over to the stairs.

I walked up stairs and slowly walked over to Niall’s room. I could hear talking coming from his room. I just stood by the door frozen listening to what was being said.

“Listen I told you last night I moved on.”

“I know but come on Niall. We are so meant to be. And besides if you won’t get back together with me, who will you go out with? That slut from last night?

Ok someone clearly wants to get hit right now.

“Just leave Sheila! I don’t want to hear it anymore. Just leave and don’t come and find me again, ok?”

“Whatever Niall. You’re clearly making a big mistake.”

I just stood by the door frozen while the girl who was talking to Niall came barging out of the room. It was no other than Sheila. Of course. She was so mad and walking so fast she didn’t even see me standing there. Well, I dodged that bullet. I’m on a roll tonight.

I knocked on Niall’s half opened door and just stood their waiting for his “ok” so I could come in and talk to him. You could tell he was upset by the way he held his head in his hands, looking at the ground. The second he looked up and saw me standing in his doorway he looked even angrier.

“Can I talk to you?” I said nervously. He just stared at me like I just killed his goldfish. “Please?”

He wouldn’t say anything. He just kept looking at me. I mean a simple “yeah” or a head nod would do. I just decided to go ahead and give him my “I’m sorry” speech that I’ve been making up in my head for the past 20 minutes.

“Listen, Niall, I know you hate my guts right now but you have to understand what happened. I saw you kissing that awful Sheila girl and I got really upset and jealous because I’ve liked you for the longest time. I started drinking with Harry because I didn’t want to let that ruin my night and then I saw you and kissed him to make you jealous. I wasn’t thinking right and I’m so sorry I upset you.” I was now crying “I know you hate me right now and you’ll never know how sorry I am, but I love you Niall.”

I couldn’t even get my thoughts together because the next thing I knew Niall stood up, walked over to me and kissed me.
