31. Let Me Be You're Hero

ATTENTION BEFORE YOU READ: LISTEN TO 'HERO' BY ENRIQUE IGLESIAS AS YOU READ. :)

 

Lily's POV

I walked in the highly decorated ballroom. I looked around and saw decorations every where. There were princess crowns everywhere. It was Disney Princess themed, the one that I thought would be most perfect theme for Prom. Prom. It was finally senior Prom. I smiled to myself thinking how much fun tonight was going to be. Niall couldn't make it; he ditched too much tour earlier for him to make it. I told him not to come. He had to be back to work, and as much as I didn't want him to miss it, I accepted the fact. I mean, he did stay with me during my last weeks of cancer. I know if Niall were here though, things would be undeniably perfect.  I take my phone out of the purse, and text Stacey, who was supposed to be here already. We were going to meet at my house, but plans changed and she was running late. So, instead of going to dinner before, we're going to go to iHOP after. We're too cool for the old school tradition.

"Yeah, I'll be there in a few minutes. Just wait up." she texted me back. I walked over to the edge of the room and sat down on a chair. I waited sitting there, looking around the room for Stacey to show up.

...So if by the time the bar closes, and you feel like falling down, I'll carry you home, tonight…

"We Are Young" ended, and one of my all-time favorite songs came up. "Hero" by Enrique Iglesias. That was a huge mood swing. I saw all the cute couples walk in the middle of the dance floor to dance. I sighed, wishing that Niall was here.

 

Let me be your hero…

Would you dance, if I asked you to dance?

Would you run, and never look back?

Would you cry, if you saw me crying?

Would you save my soul tonight…

 

It was until then until I heard a familiar voice singing behind. I quickly turned around. He stood there as he leaned against the wall in a tuxedo with his hair done, smiling when he saw me, and looking absolutely perfect.

Niall.

My Niall.

I stood up and quickly ran in his arms. "Niall!" I quickly pulled away. "You're here," I was so happy I felt like crying. He smiled back while grabbing my waist, quickly pecking my lips, and taking my right hand in his.

"How could I miss my Lily's prom? Come on, dance with me."

I smiled and placed my hand on his shoulder. "Of course."

He gave me a weird look. "Not here silly, over there." He pointed to the dance floor. "Come on." He lead me to the middle of the dance floor and grabbed my waist again. I put my hand on his shoulder, and rested my head on the crook of his neck.

 

I can be your hero baby..

I can kiss away the pain..

I will stand by you forever..

You can take my breath away..

 

"What's with the wig?"

"I don't want to look back at Prom pictures of me bald."

"You're beautiful without it."

"You've told me that so many times, you know?"

"Just stating the facts." He shrugged.

I shook my head. Behind Niall, I saw Stacey, leaning on Harry's shoulder smiling at us. She notices I'm looking at her, and she waves and forms a heart with her fingers. Harry looks at her. He laughs and shakes his head.

"What's going on with Stacey and Harry?" I ask Niall.

"I don't know. That's a good question."
"Does Harry like her?"

Niall chuckles. "No seriously. Every night, we ask him, 'So Harry… how's Stacey?' and he blushes and says something like 'Oh, she's fine.' but I got him to confess it to me one time. Trust me, he's head over heels over her. What about Stace?"

"Did you see her room? She has a cut-out of Harry, everything Harry. But she got those way before she met him."

"We'll see them get together.. Sooner or later."

 

Am I in too deep

Have I lost my mind

I don't care you’re here tonight

 

"I can be your hero, baby, I can kiss away the pain, I will stand by you forever, you can take my breath away," Niall sang perfectly in my ear. I blushed and looked down on the floor.

"I know your blushing," he teased me.

I looked up and saw his eyes sparkle. I smiled. I glanced quickly at Stacey, and I saw her dancing with Harry.

"Uh Niall…" I motioned for him to look behind him.
"Yeah? What's wrong?" he looked behind him and quickly turned to face me. His mouth shaped like an 'O'.

"They're dancing!" he whispered excitedly. I laughed. "Yes I know! I say we annoy them after. Oh, by the way, Stacey and I are going to iHop after. Care to join us?"

He smiled. "Pancakes? My pleasure."

 

I can be your hero baby

I can kiss away the pain

I will stand by you forever

You can take my breath away

 

The song ended and Niall pulled me closer to him, so that the space between us was not even visible. He leaned and kissed me. I smiled and pulled away, and my eyes were locked with his. "You're my hero Niall, you really are." I quickly kissed him and wrapped my arms around his neck. His arms tightened around my waist. "I love you, Lily," he whispered in my ear. Every time he told me those words, I would get chills running around my body.

"I love you, too."

 

You're insecure don't know what for

You're turning heads when you walk through the door...

 

Niall shook his head and howled in laughter when he heard the first few words to his and the boys song. I joined in laughing while Stacey and Harry walked up to us.

"Hey mate, I say we go sing it live to them. As a little treat. You get Liam and Zayn's solo." Harry threw his arm over Niall's shoulder.

"I think so. But you know, you can always dedicate it to a special friend of yours," Niall nudged his elbow in Harry's stomach. Harry blushed and looked away. "Come on mate."

"You know people here going to freak out," I warned them.

They nodded. "I think we know."

When the boys made their way to the DJ I looked over to Stacey and hugged her. "You and Harry! Ahh!"

Stacey blushed, "Well…"

"Hello Edge Wood High school!" Harry's voice echoed in the room. "I hope you guys are having a fun time tonight! Well I mean, it is your Prom so," people were whispering to each other and I could hear a group of girls screaming, "Niall and I here heard 'What Makes You Beautiful' and thought that it would be better for us two to sing it live. Wouldn't you like that?"

There were some squeals here and there with a couple of 'yeah!' The DJ pressed a few buttons and Niall started to sing. Even though it wasn't his solo, he did amazing, like always.

 

Baby you light up my world like nobody else

The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed

But when you smile at the ground it isn't hard to tell

You don't know-oh oh you don't know you're beautiful!

 

Everyone started to sing along and danced along with them .

"Haha no!" I scream in Harry's face as we walk out of iHop. It is almost 2 in the morning, and well, none of us were tired. We had so much sugar on our pancakes it wasn't even funny. Harry pouted and looked down while Stacey and Niall were laughing uncontrollably. 

"But…"

"Don't you 'but' me Styles," a smile crept on my face and I ended up laughing to.

"Can you guys stop arguing over something stupid, I'm going to explode," Stacey tried to say while she laughed. Harry lost it and started laughing to.

"Hey, there's a park nearby we can go to, it's like not far from here," Stacey offered.

"What about this dress Stacey it's getting annoying."

"Don’t worry I got you a change of clothes. It's in the trunk," she walked over to the car and gave me shorts, a t-shirt, and tennis shoes. She looked in deeper and gave me my hoodie and her clothes. We walked back in the restaurant and changed quickly. I took off the itchy wig and put on the bandana that was in my hoodie. To make a bit less awkward I put  the hoodie on my head. We walk outside and put the dresses in the car nicely, trying not to get it wrinkled up. We see Niall and Harry talking at the edge of the parking lot.

"Shh." I put a finger on my mouth. Stacey nods and we sneak up on the boys. I jump on Niall's back and Stacey jumps on Harry's.

"What in the world was that for! You scared the heck out of me!" Niall screamed, almost dropping me. Stacey and I just laugh it off. Stacey jumps off Harry's back but I stay on Niall's.

"Go," I pointed to the park and make Niall walk. He pouted but started walking with me on my back. We went our own separate ways, Niall and I went right, and Stacey and Harry went left.

"Walk to the bridge. I like it there." I instructed him, still on his back. "I don't like that place though."

I jumped off his back and looked at him, "Why?"

He shrugged and looked, "that’s the place I met Brielle and she told me."

"Niall." I lifted his chin and locked our eyes together. "Everything's okay now. I don't have to remind you I'm cancer free. I'm not going to die anymore. Well, I will eventually, but not anytime soon, I hope."

"Lily," he started tearing up a bit. "I thought you were going to die, I thought I was going to loose you forever, I was scared as hell, Lily."

I put my hands around his neck and kissed him. I pulled away and hugged him tightly. "I didn't die, Niall, I didn't die. Everything's good. I'm right here." I felt his arms tighten around my waist.

"I love you," he mumbled against my hoodie.

"I love you, too."

"By the way, don't tell you parents. But I was the anonymous donor. I think you should know."

My eyes widened. "Niall! You know you didn't have to!"

He smiled. "I know I didn't have to; I wanted to."

He took my hand in his and I leaned against his arm, and we walked in silence around the park.

"I got you a little something," he smirked, breaking the silence.

I lightly slapped his chest and gave him a stern look. "You know I don't like that. And you just admitted that you helped paid for my surgery."

"I know." He laughed and dug in his pocket. He took his hand out and gave me a small purple leather box. I take it in my own hand, feeling it  and glancing at him before I opened it. He puts his arm around me and stares at the box in my hands. "Go on, open it." He nudged me.

I opened the box and smiled. I looked at Niall and smirked, "Are you going to propose?"

He shakes his head and smiles. "No, of course not! Well not now. It's just a promise ring."

I smile even bigger and hug him tight. "It's perfect Niall, it really is. Thank you. It's perfect, just like you."

He blushed and kissed the top of my head. He took the ring out of the box. I couldn’t see the exact detail due to the night, but I didn't care. It was perfect no matter how it looked like. He took my right hand and slipped the ring on my ring finger. I watched him do it, and when it was firmly in place I looked up at him, are eyes just staring at each other. I smiled, wrapping my hands around his neck and kissed him passionately. He pulled away and held on to me tightly.

"You know what's funny?"

I faced Niall and shook my head. "Nope."

"Last time we had a fancy party like this, what was it, homecoming? Yeah, homecoming. We were just best friends."

"And…"

He continued, "That was the first time you expressed your feelings to me. That was the first time you told me you liked me, in a different way. And then you ran away you silly little girl."

I thought of that night. I was a naïve girl big time. I don't even know why I ran away from him.

"I bet you wanted me to kiss you, huh? I actually was going to. But then you weren't there." he smirked.

"Shut up, Niall. I was a stupid little girl then. Anyways, what is your point?"

He shrugged. "I don't know where I was going with this actually. It's funny though, we're now here and it's Prom. Well for you, I'm just your date. We've changed a lot." He quickly added, "In a good way. I'm in One Direction, you've just kicked cancer's butt. We're together. Oh, and I've gotten a lot more hotter." He laughed at his 'joke.'

"And you too, my dear! My goodness! Time goes by so fast! I remember when you were a baby!" he exclaimed, looking up and down at me, imitating those people who you haven't seen in years.

I smiled and lightly slapped his arm. "You're special."

"You know I love you, Lily."

"More than Nando's?" I teased him.

He thought about it and laughed. "Yeah, a million times more than Nando's."

"I love you, Niall."

He leaned in and kissed me another time, smiling in the kiss. He pulled away and smiled even bigger. "And this time, when you expressed your feelings to me, you didn't run away. And I kissed you this time, just like you wanted me too." His smile slightly faded, and he got a little more serious. "I love you, Lily Hunter, forever and ever."
