6. The Day of Romance

I went to bed with only one thing on my mind, Niall. How could a guy as amazing as him love me? It didn't make any sense. I didn't deserve him. I've hurt so many people. So many people have hurt me. It just didn't add up. We were on totally different paths and they just happened to intersect, but our paths keep going, in different directions. I should be happy that i have him, and i am. I just cant make him as happy as someone who has the same fate as him could. Why do i always think about this? Because it's true, no..because I'm afraid of getting hurt. I'm a clumsy person, so I'm probably prone to being clumsy in love. I need time to myself is all. I can't be responsible for another persons feelings when I can't even take care of my own. I don't know what i want. Well, I do. I want to live happily ever after with Niall. It's going in that direction, but something always ends up messing it up, I can't let that happen. Tomorrow, even though it's Valentines Day, I have to break up with Niall. It'll kill him, but he'll get over it. I mean, we'll still talk, and hopefully in the future date again. Time is always the answer, and when you give enough of it, everything works out. If it's meant to be, then it will be. Tomorrow, I whispered, tomorrow.

I heard the doorbell ring, it was 6:00. I got up and slowly walked over to the door. I was surprised with a kiss from Niall.

"What are you doing here? It's 6:00 Niall."

"Oh, I'm sorry. I just wanted to wish my very cranky, sleepy girlfriend a Happy Valentines Day." He grabbed my hand and gave me a dozen gorgeous, white roses.

I couldn't help but smile. "Well, thank you." He leaned down and kissed me a second time. "Sorry about the morning breath, I was ambushed."

"Ha.ha. very funny. Now go take a shower and get dressed. I'm taking you out for breakfast before school."

"Oh you don't have to do---"

"Yes, I do." He kissed my forehead. "Now common, lets go"

He followed me up the stairs and I could only think about what I was going to do later.

I took a quick shower and put on a white shirt and jeans, skipping the makeup.

I grabbed my patterned purse. "Okay then, I'm ready."

"You look beautiful as always."

I then noticed Harry and Louis with Elenor, behind Niall.

"Oh hey guys!" I hugged them all and kissed them.

I smiled, but it quickly faded.

"You look troubled," Niall said.

"I'm just tired," I lied.

"Hmm, I don't know." Louis smirked and started laughing.

"Zayn and Liam couldn't make it. They tried, but they couldn't get out of their plans."

"Oh well, I'm sure they're having a much better time than they would have with us."

Everyone laughed. I smiled, but it faded again.

We pulled into my favorite resturaunts parking lot and we climbed out. Niall reached for my hand and i accepted and loved the feeling as usual, but I knew inside that i wouldn't be having those butterflies for much longer, and I knew i would miss it. And him. We ate quickly and shared some laughs, but it just wasn't the same. What was wrong with me? Why couldn't i love him the same way? What was interrupting our time together? My feelings. But why? Why now?

He turned the radio on and of course it had to be our song. Collide by Howie Day.

He started laughing which made me smile. "That's lucky!" He said.

"Can you take me home instead of school, please? I have a terrible headache and my stomach hurts."

"Oh, yeah. Of course. Look forward and drink some water. Here." He handed me a water bottle. Then, he grabbed my hand and started stroking it.

Everyone seemed really worried.

This is going to be awful. This is going to be awful. This is going to be awful. This is going to be awful.

Those were the only words that i could form in my head.

"You guys take the car to the hotel, I'm going to stay here with Kathryn."

"Oh definitely. Call us"

Niall walked me to my door and then to my bed. I climbed in and he sat in a chair next to me.

"Niall?"

"Yes, love?"

"I need to say something to you."

I could feel my stomach cramping up and I could hear my heart beating.

"I, um..I don't know what i want anymore, Niall. I've been thinking about it a lot and I feel like our paths definitely crossed for a reason, but we're going in separate directions now. It's so cruel of me to do this on Valentines Day, but I can't bear the thought of getting hurt."

"Why do you think you're going to get hurt?" He asked.

"Because all good things always come to an end. I don't want this good thing to end in a bad way, so I'm ending it for all the positive reasons."

"That doesn't make any sense, Kathryn. You're ending it so that it won't end?"

"I'm ending it now, so in the future, it won't happen again and nobody will get hurt."

"Well your plan worked in a way, you see. You got rid of me, but my feeling *were* hurt and we probably won't be together in the future."

Those were the last words coming out of his mouth and he stormed out with tears in his eyes. I immediately started seeing blurry and then i realized it was because tears were forming in my eyes and no sooner were streaming down my face. How could i be so horrible? I just ruined my only happiness. I understood at that moment, that he was all i wanted. What i was thinking before was confusion because i was so in love and now that it was over, i wanted nothing, but for him to hold me again. I couldn't run after him. I couldn't see him cry because it would only break my heart more. I can't shatter myself. So i turned on our song on replay and just closed my eyes and pretended nothing happened. The lyrics spoke to me. There was a reason why and there was a reason why it was our song. I drifted into a peaceful, quiet sleep.

I heard the doorbell ring, it was 6:00. I got up and slowly walked over to the door. I was surprised with a kiss from Niall.

"What are you doing here? It's 6:00 Niall."

"Oh, I'm sorry. I just wanted to wish my very cranky, sleepy girlfriend a Happy Valentines Day." He grabbed my hand and gave me a dozen gorgeous, white roses.

I couldn't help but smile. "Well, thank you." He leaned down and kissed me a second time. "Sorry about the morning breath, I was ambushed."

"Ha.ha. very funny. Now go take a shower and get dressed. I'm taking you out for breakfast before school."

"Oh you don't have to do---"

"Yes, I do." He kissed my forehead. "Now common, lets go"

He followed me up the stairs and I could only think about what was going on! Was yesterday real?

"You seem troubled."

"No, i just had this really weird dream last night."

"You and your dreams." He winked and I smiled.

I took a quick shower and put on a white shirt and jeans, skipping the makeup.

I grabbed my patterned purse. "Okay then, I'm ready."

"You look beautiful as always."

"Can i just asked what's going on?" I exclaimed.

"Um, well, I'm taking my beautiful girlfriend out for breakfast before school and then out for dinner tonight...is something wrong?"

"No. Everything's right, everything's perfect. I love you."

In our song, Collide, it says, "Even the wrong words seem to rhyme." I understood now, that even though i might have thought we were wrong for eachother, we fit together like a puzzle. That doesn't happen everyday, so when it does, you have to hold on to that feeling, for as long as you can. In my case, forever.
