12. They Know


Catherine’s POV

Niall leaving for America in 2 weeks was bitter sweet. Don’t get me wrong; I am so proud of him and extremely excited for him. Also I can always fly out and stay with my family for a little while when he’s in the US. I was just kind of bummed out that we finally had gotten together and he was leaving so soon.

Niall and I had just spent the day walking around and talking. Every now and then a few girls would come up to us and ask for a picture with him. We hadn’t made our relationship public yet so we couldn’t really hold hands or anything because Niall didn’t want people sending me nasty tweets and putting me down, but as long as I was with Niall I was happy.

Niall had told me to get up early today since he had a big surprise planned out. I begged him to tell me yesterday while we were walking around but he refused. I woke up to the sound of the ringtone on my cellphone going off. I picked it up still laying in my bed half asleep.

“Hello?” I said not even bothering to check who was calling.

“Hey babe. Wake up and get ready because we’re going on an adventure today.” He said with his thick Irish accent.

“Okay. I will.” I said and I hung up the phone.

After I hung up I started to fall back to sleep. I didn’t mean to but I was tired and 7 am. It should be illegal to be up this early.

Next thing I knew someone was pulling the sheets from my bed off of me. I opened one of my eyes to see Niall of course.

“You’re such a bad listener.” He said laughing.

“I like sleeping okay I’m sorry.” I said half asleep. Next thing knew Niall picked me up and threw me over his shoulder in a fireman’s hold. “I’m up! I’m up!” I said now fully awake and upside down. He put me down.

“Get dressed casual and put on a bathing suit.” He said as he walked out of my room and made his way into the kitchen. “You have 10 minutes”

I made my way into the bathroom and got changed real quickly. I put my hair into a ponytail and put on a little eyeliner and mascara. I was done in exactly 10 minutes so Niall didn’t have to get his underwear in a twist and rush me.

“Ready.” I said walking into the kitchen only to witness Niall stuffing his face with food. Typical. I decided to have an apple and not eat everything in sight along with Niall.

“Okay, lets go.” Niall said grabbing my hand and walking out of the kitchen. I left a note on the counter telling Paige and Mair that I was with Niall for the day. We left the flat and headed for Niall’s car. Next thing I knew, Niall was trying to put a bandana over my eyes.

“What are you doing?” I said spazing out.

“You can’t see where we’re going it’s a surprise.” He said finishing tying the bandana around my head. He grabbed both of my hands and slowly led me to the car so I wouldn’t run into a poll or anything. Which the chances of that happening were very high.

“Can you at least give me a hint to where we are going?” I said

“Nope.” He said turning on the car.

“Well how far away is wherever we’re going?” I said trying to get any information, if possible, out of him.

“I don’t know. I guess you’ll have to wait and find out.” He said as the car started moving.

I decided to try and sleep for the ride since I couldn’t see anything and it was still pretty early. And besides, who knows how long this car ride will be. Next thing I knew Niall was tapping my shoulder trying to wake me up.

“Cat, Come on wake up we’re here.” He said in a really sweet voice. I could tell he was trying to wake me up as nicely as possible.

“If I wake up can I take off my blindfold?” I said yawning.


“Okay deal.” I sitting up and taking off my blindfold. I looked around. We were in the middle of the woods. “Where are we?” I said getting out of the car.

“The woods.” He said as if it wasn’t already obvious.

“I can see that.” I said laughing a little.

“Follow me” He said staring to walk on one of the trails. He knew exactly where he was going.

We had been walking for about 5 minutes when we finally got to our destination.

“We’re here.” He said pointing to the lake in front of us. ( It was the most beautiful sight I’d ever seen. Well, next to Niall of course.

“Oh my god.” That seemed to be the only thing I could manage to say. “It’s beautiful.”

I looked over at Niall as he started taking his shirt off. Today was clearly going to be a good day.

“Let’s go swimming.” He said running into the water. I started taking off my tank top and shorts since I was wearing a bathing suit. “Hurry up slow poke.” Niall said as he splashed me with water. I was now soaking wet.

“Niall Horan you got all my clothes wet I’m going to kill you!” I said trying to quickly hand my shirt and shorts on a branch to dry.

“You won’t.” He said with a smirk on his face.

“It’s on Horan.”

I ran into the water after Niall when he decided to swim out farther. I stopped for a few seconds to catch my breath. By now I was pretty close to the middle of the lake and it was getting harder for e to stand. I looked around for a second and noticed Niall had completely disappeared.

“Niall?” I half shouted. No one answered. “Niall?” I called again but louder this time. I started to panic. Where could he have gone? My mind started to fill itself with all the worst scenarios possible when all of a sudden 2 giant arms wrapped around my waist.

“Got cha’!” Niall shouted still holding me by my waist.

“That’s not funny you scared me!” I said trying to catch my breath and recover from the heart attack I just had. I turned around to face him.

“I’m sorry.” He said leaning in and kissing me. “I’ll never do it again okay?”

“Pinkie promise?” I held out my pinkie towards him. He grabbed my pinkie with his.

“Promise.” He said flashing a smile at me. “Wanna go into town and get something to eat? Or go shopping?”

“Yeah lets go.”

We both swam back to land, dried off and put back on our shirts and shorts. Niall led the way out of the woods and right at the end of the woods was a small little town. We started walking down the street looking at all the little shops. No one even seemed to know who Niall was which made it a little more relaxing. We were able to act like a couple in public for once.

2 Days Later…

Niall’s POV

Everything with Cat was going perfectly. No matter what we did, even if we just stayed home all day and watched movies, was perfect. Mairead’s birthday was coming up soon so we were all planning out what we were going to do. It was going to be fun.

I decided to go check twitter since I hadn’t been on for a few days. As always my mentions were being blown up as usual by fans but this time something caught my eyes.

“Her again?!”

“Niall why didn’t you tell us?! :(“

“Sneaking around I see Niall?”

I clicked a link to a picture of Cat and I from 2 days ago when I took her to the lake and the little town. I was sure no one had known who I was but I guess someone did. There were pictures of us holding hands and walking around. I was praying Cat hadn’t seen all the drama yet so I called her.

“Hey babe. What’s up?” She said from the other side of the phone.

“Have you been on twitter lately?” I said trying to sound calm.

“No.” She said confused. “Why what’s wrong?”

“Someone saw us in town the other day. There are pictures online. People are going crazy.”

“Oh.” Was all she managed to choke out. “Do they hate me?”

“I don’t know. They shouldn’t.” I said trying to make this situation a little bit better. I was failing miserably. “It’s gonna be fine. No matter what anyone says don’t let it get to you.”

“I’ll try.” She said softly.

“I love you.”

“I love you too.” The line went dead.

I was worried more now than I was before. Some fans could be really mean sometimes. I saw some of the hate first hand when Mairead and Paige had first started going out with Louis and Zayn. Nothing was that bad and the girls took it well, but I knew it was going to be harder for Cat to just let people’s comments roll right off her back. She took things more personally.
