7. Fear

I don't know how much time passed. It could have been minutes, hours, days... I had boarded myself up into my room, locking myself in from the rest of the world. I had multiple visitors knocking on my door. Liam, Missy, the rest of the boys, my parents, Jason, Jonathan, Bella. Everyone but the one person I really wanted to talk to... Niall! The one whose heart I probably just ripped out and smashed on the kitchen floor in a matter of seconds.

I had rejected Niall. I had told Niall I couldn't kiss him. I don't know why I did it or what came over me. I felt like a child because of the way I acted. I was scared and I was nervous so I ran. And from there, I locked myself in my room. My mom begged me to come out, told me I could talk to her, pleaded that I ate something. Jason told me that no guy is worth it. Missy pleaded that I talked to her about what had happened. The guys all said the same thing about Niall being so heart broken.

I had broken Niall Horan's heart.

A knock echoed through my room. I was tucked under my covers, my head buried into my pillow as I stared up at the ceiling. I glanced at the clock on my wall. It read 4:14 PM in bold, red letters. Everything in my room was the same. Everything looking untouched except for my bed. I pulled my covers up over my body, not answering to pretend I was asleep, hoping whoever it was would go away.

"Briana? It's Missy. It's been a day. Can you please come out of your room? You haven't eaten or drank anything. Please Bri? I know you're awake," Missy called through the door, "Everyone's really worried about you, "One slow, long pause, "Niall's worried about you, Briana," She added. My heart stopped beating and when it started again, I felt like it was broken, "Just please talk to me? I'm your best friend, Briana. Please?"

"Go away, Missy. I don't want to talk to anyone," I called and then pulled one of my pillows up to my face, putting it over my face to make my voice a little muffled.

"Bri, please? Niall's distraught over what happened. He thinks you hate him and I tried telling him that's not true. Why would you run away, Briana? You and I both know you like him," She stated.

"Because I was scared!" I exclaimed. It was still silent, as if Missy was waiting for me to explain more, "He scares me, Miss.. I've never fallen for somebody so fast. I'm scared he's going to break my heart. He's famous... This isn't the same thing as being friends with Liam. He was going to kiss me and I just thought about all of the fans who would hate me and everything that would come with a relationship and I got scared."

"There's nothing to be afraid about, Bri. If anybody tried hating on you, of course the boys would tell them to stop. Niall really likes you, Briana. I don't think he ever wants to break your heart," I stayed quiet, "Bri?" There was a sigh through the door, "Just come out, will you? We can go out to eat and go see a movie. We don't have to see the boys. They won't even know you're out. Please? I'm begging you."

I groaned into my pillow, looking at the clock, "Let me shower."

I heard Missy squeal in excitement, "Thank you, Bri. I love you! Call me when you're out! I'm going to go home and get ready!"
