Blinded By You

6 months ago, I lost my eyesight. But life goes on, I attend university in London and one of my best friend's is Niall Horan, from One Direction. But he doesn't know I'm blind. Will he hate me when I tell him? Will he treat me the same? Will I fall for one of his bandmates...


39. Cookies & Confessions

My spidey senses are telling me that we are close to the'll have to wait and see. Hope you guys like it<3



Niall’s POV


“These are delicious!” I said through a mouthful of cookie. “You have no idea how much I’ve missed these while on tour.”


“I can tell; it sounds like your having sex with it,” Kodie snickered. I grabbed the pillow from the seat next to me and whacked it against her face. It was my turn to laugh at the shocked expression on her face. “You sir, are being violent. I don’t appreciate it.”


“Well, you deserved that one; you’re making fun of me and I don’t appreciate that.” I countered.


She shrugged and continued plucking the strings of the guitar from her spot on the chair. Kodie was sitting cross legged and had her head tilted, trying to hear when she messed up a note, which wasn’t many. For someone who hasn’t played in years, can’t see the strings and is playing by listening, she is doing really, really well.


“I don’t think I’m going to be playing the guitar in concert just yet; I still need to work on my playing,” Kodie said.


“That’s not a bad idea, just play when you feel comfortable. But don’t worry, Dan has you covered,” I joked.


“True, very true.” Kodie answered.


I lay back on the couch watching her play. Kodie looked calm and serene as she played, scrunching up her nose adorably whenever she placed her finger on the wrong string. I shifted to my side to look at her more clearly; Kodie really was beautiful. Her long, slightly wavy chocolate brown hair fell over one shoulder, almost like a curtain, and she had to constantly tuck it behind her ear. The sunglasses she wore rested on her nose and her fingers expertly moved over the guitar creating a random melody of music.


“Stop looking at me,” she said, not lifting her head towards me.


“How do you do that? It’s weird, but insanely awesome at the same time,” I propped myself up on one elbow.


“I don’t know,” Kodie shrugged. “I think it’s sort of a sixth sense that everyone has, but it’s more prominent in those who are blind; when you lose one of your sense, the other four become stronger. Close your eyes and see if you can tell if I’m coming closer or not.” She set aside her guitar and faced me.


I did as she said and closed my eyes. Listening hard, I couldn’t hear anything, but it felt as If there was a shape coming closer to me; almost like a shift in the air in the room. “You’re coming towards me, aren’t you?” I asked.


“That was good; how about now?” she said.


I remained still and got that feeling that something was coming closer. “You’re coming closer?” I hesitated.


“Nope,” she told me and I opened her eyes to see she was standing next to the chair. “It gets easier if you do it for a while.” Kodie sat back down and grabbed a cookie from the plate on the table next to her.


“Toss me one,” I said.


Kodie picked up another cookie and tossed it in my direction. As soon as I caught it, I stuffed it in my mouth; it’s not my fault, these cookies are addicting.


“Hey, I have to go. Rose and I are going out to eat tonight and she specifically told me not to be late,” Kodie said. She picked up her guitar and gently placed it back into the case. Kodie came closer to me and I stood up to give her a hug. “Thank you so much for the guitar; you are the best.” She said into my chest. I grinned and I rested my face against her hair; the smell of her shampoo filling my nose.


“It was my pleasure,” I answered truthfully. Right about now I would do anything for Kodie; no matter how crazy it was. Reluctantly letting go, Kodie picked up the case and I grabbed my keys.


After I dropped her off at her flat and returned to my car and dropped my head onto the steering wheel; what was she doing to me? I needed to talk through whatever I was feeling with someone other than myself. Liam. He would know what to do.


I drove myself over to his flat and knocked on the door. A couple seconds passed before Liam opened the door and saw me standing there.


“Hey Nialler, what brings you here?” Liam asked as I walked past him. I plopped myself face-first onto the couch and yelled into the pillow. “Alright, tell Daddy what’s wrong,” he joked.


Flipping my head to my side, I opened my eyes to see Liam looking at me with his eyebrows raised. “I have feelings that I shouldn’t have for Kodie.” I admitted.


“And what kind of feelings are those?” Liam asked with a slight smile, almost as if he knew what I was going to say.


“I like Kodie as more than a friend,” I said.


“Well there’s nothing wrong with that,” Liam responded.


“Yes there is,” I moaned, burying my face into the pillow again.


“I’m confused, what’s the problem?” I said something, but the pillow muffled my answer. “What?” Liam asked, stepping closer to actually hear me.


I turned to face him again, “I can’t like my best friend; I'm pretty sure there are rules against that. Therefore, I can’t do anything about what I feel. What if I ruin our friendship? I can’t lose her; I’d rather have her as a friend than not at all.” I sat up and grabbed the collar of his shirt and shook him, “What am I supposed to do?!”


Liam gently pried my hands off his shirt, “Niall, you need to calm down.”


“I can’t! How am I supposed to be around her when I can’t control myself? What if I kiss her without thinking and she doesn’t feel the same way and then she never speaks to me again? She’s been my best friend since I was born and I can’t lose her over unreciprocated feelings.” I cried.


“Oh, boy; you’re using big words and we all know you only use big words when you are seriously frustrated.” Liam paced the room. “You just need to calm down. I don’t think you would do anything to risk you’re friendship with her; I know that you would have more self control than to randomly put the moves on her. That’s just not like you.”


“But what am I supposed to do about it?” I whined.


“Tell her…or not,” Liam changed his mind once he saw the horrified look on my face. “No offense, but I’m actually surprised she hasn’t figured out that you like her. I mean she’s smart and you’re kind of obvious.”


I glared at him, “I am not.”


He raised an eyebrow at me, “All of the boys, maybe except Harry, believe that you have a crush on her.”


“Oh,” was all I could say. “I think Rose suspects something which can be dangerous. What if she tells Kodie?”


“Rose wouldn’t do that; she’d corner you first and make sure before she said anything. But you’re not a very good liar, so she would probably figure it out in a couple minutes.” Liam said thoughtfully.


I fell back against the couch and covered my face with my hands, “Either way I’m doomed!”


Liam sat next to me, “You are not doomed. My advice is just to wait until you have an idea of whether or not she likes you before you say anything.”


“Liam, even if Kodie liked me, she wouldn’t come right out and tell me. She’s not usually shy, but she was always afraid to tell a guy how she felt, no matter who it was. And she especially wouldn’t say anything to me.” I told him. Nobody saw the shy side of Kodie; she was always friendly to everyone she met, but she still had her own insecurities.


“You could always ask Rosie whether or not she likes you,” Liam suggested.


I made a face, “I can imagine her gloating now.” Rose always liked embarrassing me, even for the smallest things. If I told her I liked Kodie, I don’t think I’ll ever hear the end of it.


“Mate, I’m sorry. It seems like you got yourself into a predicament, but I can promise you that everything will work out how it’s supposed to.” Liam patted me on the back. “Fate has a funny way of working. Look at Danielle and I; for a while I wasn’t sure that we would get back together, but in the end it will all work out the way it’s supposed to.”
