15. Trading Places


Cat’s POV

I looked out my window on the plane and saw the sun was just coming up. We were about 15 minutes away from landing in New York City, which was where the boys would be staying for the next 2 weeks for concerts, interviews, meet and greets, etc. In the 2 seats next to me were Mairead and Paige sleeping peacefully. I didn’t get much sleep the entire trip since I was about to land in America and try to win my ex boyfriend back. My stomach was in knots and I couldn’t even concentrate.

“Everyone please sit in there seats and fasten your seatbelts, we are landing now.” Was all I heard from the speaker on the plane with the flight attendant talking over it.

Crap. Now within a matter of a few minutes, everything I’ve been freaking out over will become a reality. And since me deciding to come on the trip again was such a last minute decision, none of the boys knew I was coming yet. They did stay prepared just in case I changed my mind, but everyone pretty much thought I wasn’t coming at all. Oh well, who doesn’t love a surprise?

“Wake up, we’re landing.” I said nudging Paige and Mairead.

“5 more minutes Cath.” Said Mairead trying to push me away.

“The plane is landing you can’t sleep on here all day.” I said. She didn’t move so I threw my pillow at her.

“I’m up! I’m up!” she said jumping out of her seat.

We grabbed our bags, walked off the plane and started heading towards the doors to go outside when we saw Zayn and Louis standing there waiting for Paige and Mairead. Page and Mair both ran up to them and started hugging them. I eventually made my way over to the little love fest going on when Louis and Zayn saw me and there jaws dropped.

“Hey guys!” I said trying to ignore the fact that they were both looking at me like I had 10 heads.

“Catherine?” Zayn said in pure shock.

“What are you doing here?” Louis said. They both just kept looking at me.

“I know I said I wasn’t coming anymore but I changed my mind last minute. Besides, why are you guys so surprised? Of course I want to come out and see my best friends.” I said trying to make Louis and Zayn a little happier that I actually came, but I was failing miserably.

“Call Liam. This is bad.” Louis said to Zayn as if I wasn’t even there.

“What’s going on?” Paige said to Louis. She was clearly just as annoyed and confused as I was.

“Niall left.” Louis said with a blank expression on his face.

“What do you mean Niall left?” I said all worried and confused. A million thoughts started going through my head.

“He went back to London to see you. He didn’t think you were coming out here with Paige and Mairead anymore.” Zayn said

“Why would he fly all the way out to London to see me? He broke up with me.” I said looking down at my feet. I started to feel sad about what happened between Niall and I again.

“Because he loves you.” Was all Zayn managed to say.

I didn’t say anything. I just stood there trying not to cry. Why would Niall go all the way out to London to see me if he broke up with me? Paige came up to me and gave me a hug since she knew I was about to have a breakdown.

“Don’t worry, everything is going to be fine.” Paige said quiet enough so only I could hear it.

We all grabbed our luggage and walked to the boys’ car. Once we put everything in the trunk and all got into the car we started driving to the hotel we’d be staying at for the next 2 weeks.

Niall’s POV

I had just landed in London about an hour ago and was now in a cab driving to Cat’s flat. They thought they lost my luggage at the airport so I had to wait twice as long as everyone else to leave, but at least they found it eventually. I was sitting quietly in the car thinking about everything that could possibly happen when I talk to Cat. Thinking about all the possible scenarios made my stomach suddenly feel as if it was in a knot and the car suddenly stopped. I turned my head to look out the window and all that stood in front of me was the flat building. There was no turning back now. I quickly took my luggage from the trunk of the cab, paid the driver and made my way up to her flat. Once I got to the door I stood there for a few seconds trying to pluck up the courage to ring the doorbell or something, but then my phone started going off. Liam was calling.

“Hey mate, what’s up?” I said answering the phone.

“Niall where are you?” Liam said really seriously, almost worrying me.

“I’m outside Cat’s flat. I’m about to go and talk to her. What’s going on why are you calling me?” I said

“Cat’s not in London.” Liam said sighing deeply

“What do you mean she’s not in London? Where could she possibly be?” I said starting to worry. What if she was hurt? What if she had ran away because she was upset about what happened between us? The knot in my stomach started to get worse than it already was just thinking about all of this.

“She’s sitting right next to me.” Was all Liam said.

“That’s impossible.” I said not knowing how to react or what to think anymore. “She said she wasn’t coming to visit us in New York City anymore.”

“Listen, I don’t know what’s going on between you two right now but all I know is you better get your arse back here in New York City and talk things out. Get on the next flight to America now.” Liam said in a serious voice again.

“I’m going back to the airport now. Don’t let her move.” Was the last thing I said to Liam before hanging up the phone and calling another cab to drive me back to the airport.

Cat’s POV

I couldn’t believe this was all happening. By now Niall and I should’ve talked things out and be back together, but clearly the things I plan out in my mind don’t go as planned in real life. It was now around noon here so we all decided to go out to lunch and then do a little sight seeing. We were all staying at the London Hotel, which was right by Times Square. Even though I used to come here a few times a month with my family because we lived about 30 minutes away, I was still excited to go walk around. I missed the craziness of New York and I especially missed the food.

“You ready to go Cat?” Liam said coming into my room

“Uh yeah.” I said putting the last of my clothes in the closet.

“Okay.” He said. He stood there quietly for a few seconds waiting for me so we could go meet the others together. “Don’t be nervous about seeing Niall tonight.” Was all he said.

“What are you talking about?” I said as I turned around to face him.

“I can tell by the way you’ve been acting since you’ve got here that your scared, and I’m guessing it’s because you and Niall need to talk about things.” He said. I stood there quietly not knowing what to say.

“What do you think will happen when he gets back tonight and we do talk?” I said looking down at my feet feeling a little sad now. I had no idea what to expect tonight.

“I honestly don’t know.” Liam said. “But I do know that you two were made for each other, and maybe you guys will get back together and maybe you won’t. All I know is one day you two will be together forever.”

A tear started to stream down my face and I had no idea why. I was just becoming so overwhelmed with everything going on I didn’t know what to do or how to react anymore. I had finally broken down. All Liam did was come over and hug me and I just cried my eyes out.

“You know, you don’t have to be strong about all this every second of the day. We all love you no matter what and were all here for you.” Liam said still hugging me. I loved Liam and the rest of the boys. The 4 of them were like my big brothers I could tell anything to. They were always here for me too, no matter what was going on between Niall and I.

“Thanks Liam. Love you.” I said as I whipped away my last tear and grabbed my purse.

“Love you too Cat.” Liam said back. “Come on let’s go eat.”

We met up with everyone else in the lobby and got ready to leave the hotel but we had to have security with us since there were a bunch of fans outside the entrance of the hotel. The four boys went out and signed some autographs and took some pictures with fans while Paige, Mairead and I waited by the doors inside until we were actually leaving to go get lunch. About a half hour later the three of us met the boys outside and started to walk into Times Square. We were all starving by now so we decided to just go to TGI Friday’s since it was simple and it wouldn’t take that long for us to get our food.

Once we were done eating we decided to just walk around and shop a little bit, which helped me forget about everything with Niall for a little while so I was completely fine with that. We had been going into stores and walking around all day, when finally it was now becoming dark outside. I checked my phone to see what time it was when Liam’s phone started going off. He walked away from all of us for a few seconds to talk to whoever was calling him. Was it Niall? Is he back in America? I tried to casually listen to Liam talking on the phone but there was no use. It was so loud and there were so many people talking around us that I couldn’t make out a single thing he was saying. After a few minutes he hung up his phone and started to walk back over towards all of us.

“Come with me.” Liam said as he grabbed my wrist and started walking I the opposite direction of everyone else. “We’ll be back later!” He called back to everyone else.

“Liam, where are we going?!” I raised my voice a little bit. He didn’t answer me.

Eventually we ended back at the hotel, ran inside before any fans could mob us and stood in the lobby.

“What’s going on?” I said now getting annoyed.

“Go upstairs into your room and get dressed.” Liam said pushing the button on the elevator.

I didn’t even bother asking any more questions because I knew Liam wasn’t going to answer me. I did as he said and went to my room. As I walked to my closet and found a dress, some shoes and a necklace all placed nicely in the closet for me. On the dress there was a note:

Put on this dress, the shoes, and the necklace and meet Liam back in the lobby.

No one had signed the note so I had no idea who it was from. I looked on the back of the note and no name was written there either. I went into my bathroom, showered, and did my hair and makeup. Once I was satisfied with how I looked I took the dress and put it on followed by the shoes and the necklace. ( Surprisingly everything looked and fit perfectly. I looked in the mirror one last time to make sure I was happy with the way I looked and took the elevator back down to the lobby. Liam was sitting on a couch in the lobby waiting for me, just like the note said. I started to walk over to him when he noticed I was coming and stood up.

“You look amazing Cat.” He said as he gave me a hug.

“Thanks Liam.” I said blushing a little bit. I started to become nervous again because he still hadn’t told me where he was bringing me, and who was going to be there. And there was still no sign of Niall even though I thought he would be back here by now.

“Put this on.” Liam said handing me a blindfold.

“Right now?” I said a little taken back.

“When we get into the car put it on.” He said laughing a little. “The last thing we need is you trying to walk out of this hotel blindfolded while being mobbed by fans.” He did have a point there. We both knew that wouldn’t end well.

A few minutes later our car was here to pick us up. We both got into the car and I put my blindfold on as Liam instructed.

“Now no trying to peek, okay?” He said.

“I won’t. I promise.”  I said back.

We didn’t talk much during the car ride. It wasn’t that long of a car ride either though. About 15 minutes later I felt the car come to a stop.

“We’re here.” Liam said. “Wait there and I’ll come around the other side and help you. And keep the blindfold on still!”

He came over to the side of the car I was on and opened the door for me and helped me out. He then led me inside some building, I think.

“Can I please take this blindfold off now?” I said starting to become impatient.

“Yes, you can now.” Liam said.

I took off the blindfold and looked around. My jaw dropped to the floor. What was right in front of my eyes looked like nothing I’d ever seen before.
