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...

71. Food Tasting & Choice Making

 

The WWA tour will be the death of me.

It's only been like 4 days and already: Liam made an instagram, Harry looked 17 again, and Niall and Harry grabbed their dicks during Niall's solo in Better Than Words and I nearly died. ^^^^^^^^^ plus Niall's jeans are skinnier than Harry's. What's going on?!

Anyways, I hope a lot of you are still reading because I only got like one comment last chapter and I want to make sure you guys are liking the story so let me know you thoughts.

Love you all so sooooo much :)

 

 

Niall’s POV

 

When I opened my eyes the next morning Kodie was playing with my fingers, a slight frown across her features.

 

I reached forward to smooth the crease in between her eyebrows and she smiled faintly. “Good morning,” I kissed the back of her hand.

 

“Morning,” she answered.

 

I studied her face and noticed that she looked concerned about something. I wanted to ask her what she and her parents talked about last night, but it seemed that she wasn’t ready to talk about it. But I knew she would tell me when she was ready and I would give her time.

 

“Breakfast is ready!” Christine, Kodie’s mom, called.

 

“I hope your mother made French toast,” I got out of bed and pulled Kodie with me. “She makes the best French toast I have ever had.”

 

Kodie laughed, “I may have asked her if she could make some last night.”

 

I picked her up and spun her around, covering her face in kisses. “This is why I love you.” I said as I put her back down onto her feet. “Now get dressed.” I pinched her cheeks and she swatted my hands away from her face.

 

“What are we doing today?” Kodie asked.

 

“I was thinking we could walk around town, go out to lunch and just have a relaxing day.” I suggested.

 

“Sounds good.” Kodie agreed.

 

I grabbed the bag of clothes I brought over to Kodie’s house last night and changed out of my pajamas while Kodie did the same behind me. When we were both done changing, we went downstairs where Christine had already set out two plates piled high with French toast.

 

“I’ve missed my mum’s home cooked meals, but she can’t make French toast like this.” I said through a mouthful.

 

Christine smiled at me, “That means a lot coming from you.”

 

“You could be a food critic,” Kodie stated.

 

“Hmm, I might do that if I ever need a job.” I mused. “I think I’d be pretty good at it; then again maybe not because I like almost everything.”

 

We continued to chat and I watched Kodie closely, noticing that she wasn’t as responsive as she usually is. When we finished breakfast, I offered to help Christine clean up, but she waved us away telling us to go have fun.

 

We left the house and walked into the town hand in hand, stopping into the occasional store and browsing. Hours later, after being stopped by some fans, we stopped by our favorite diner and sat down to order. Our drinks were brought to us and I watched as Kodie fiddled with her straw.

 

“Are you alright?” I asked.

 

Kodie nodded and then shook her head right after. “I don’t even know.” She sighed.

 

“Do you want to talk about it?” I prodded her. She nodded and then shook her head once more. “Decisive aren’t you?” That got Kodie to crack a smile and I took her hand in mine. “Tell me whenever you want.”

 

I took a sip of my soda at the same time that Kodie said, “There might be a way that I could see again.” I inhaled and began choking on the liquid in my mouth. “Niall, are you okay?”

 

“Seriously Kodes? You have some of the worst timing ever.” I said once I recovered. “What are you talking about?”

 

She took a deep breath before explaining, “My parents told me that my doctor contacted them and told them that there is a procedure that could possibly restore my sight.”

 

“And yet you don’t sound excited about it.” I responded cautiously.

 

“I don’t even know what I should be feeling.” Kodie seemed to burst. “I mean, I do want to see again, at least I think I do, but I’ve gotten used to not being able to see. And what if it doesn’t work? There’s no guarantee that it will be successful. I don’t want to get my hopes up for something that could completely backfire on me and I’ll be right back to where I started.” Kodie ran her hands over her face. “What should I do?”

 

I pondered over what she said as I thought about her words. “Is it risky?” I questioned.

 

“I’m not sure; I have an appointment later today with the doctor to discuss it.” Kodie told me.

 

“Okay, so relax until then and once we hear everything from the doctor you can make a decision.” I gave her my opinion.

 

“That’s a good idea,” Kodie agreed.

 

I squeezed her hand right before the waiter came with our food. Kodie was quieter than usual through the lunch and I could see the tension in her shoulders. Right now I wasn’t sure how I could help her other than supporting her.

 

~`~`~`~`~`~`

 

“Kodie? The doctor will see you now.” The nurse said as she opened the door to the waiting room.

 

She gripped my hand tighter before we stood and followed the nurse into a room. Kodie sat on the bench and I took the seat in the chair next to her.

 

“Breathe,” I put my hand on her knee.

 

“I’m just a little nervous,” Kodie said in a slightly shaky voice.

 

I smiled at her, “Everything is going to be alright. I promise.”

 

The door opened and the doctor, who introduced himself as Dr. Hill, walked in with a clipboard in hand. “How are you doing Kodie?” he asked.

 

“Pretty good and yourself?” Kodie answered.

 

“I can’t complain,” Dr. Hill said. “Now, I met with your parents a little while back and I assume they told you the general idea.” Kodie nodded. “The idea is that hopefully with this procedure you will be able to gain your eyesight back and if not fully then at least partially.”

 

“How risky is it?” I piped up.

 

Dr. Hill looked at me, “It’s not extremely risky, but like with all surgeries there can be complications.”

 

“How long is the recovery time?” Kodie questioned.

 

“The surgery will be done and the recovery time is usually around a week, so you’ll be back on your feet in no time.” Dr. Hill replied.

 

Dr. Hill went into more detail with the two of us interrupting every now and then to ask questions. By the end of the appointment, Kodie seemed more at ease. I pulled her into my side as we exited the building. “Are you feeling better now that you have more information?” I asked her.

 

“Yeah, I just have a lot of thinking to do about whether I want the surgery or not.” Kodie answered.

 

~`~`~`~`~`~`

 

“Hello, Dublin!” I yelled. “How are you doing?” I received a loud cheer in response. “You are incredible! Right boys?” The other boys nodded in agreement and the audience cheered again. “I can’t believe that we’re here and playing three shows here at Croke Park. Absolutely mental.”
The rest of the concert was incredible and a hell of a lot of fun.

 

“Bloody hell, that was amazing.” I breathed while coming off stage.

 

“This is shaping up to be the best tour yet,” Harry added.

 

“I couldn’t agree more,” Zayn said. “The crowds are getting crazier and crazier.”

 

“You don’t have to tell me; taking a glow stick to the eye was enough evidence for me.” Harry grumbled. “I got lucky; otherwise I would’ve been blinded and been like Kodie here.”

 

Kodie swung her arm out and caught him in the gut; Harry winced at the contact and I grinned, pretty proud of my girl.

 

Kodie waited while I changed and then we all exited the building and headed to the hotel.

 

“Have you thought about the surgery at all?” I asked her, keeping quiet so the other boys couldn’t overhear.

 

“That’s pretty much all that’s been on my mind,” Kodie murmured back.

 

“And?” I prompted.

 

“I haven’t completely decided, but I feel like I should go through with it.” Kodie told me.

 

“Really?”

 

“From what Dr. Hill said, it’s not overly risky and I think it’s worth a shot. I have gotten used to not seeing, but there’s so much that I want to be able to see; my parents, future kids, you.” Kodie explained to me. “What if I don’t try this and it would have worked? I don’t want to regret not trying it.”

 

“But what if it doesn’t work? Or what if something worse happens?” I questioned.

 

Kodie paused, “I’m going to get the best doctor and if something else happens, I’ll deal with it. Do you not think I should have the surgery?”

 

“It’s not that,” I hesitated. “I just want to make sure that you’ve thought of all possibilities and repercussions. Plus, I don’t want anything to happen to you.”

 

Kodie smiled and kissed my cheek, “I love you. I promise I’ll think about it more and I’ll do more research before making a decision.”

 

I wanted the best for her, but at the same time I don’t want her to get hurt. I don’t know what she’ll decide, but I’m going to be right behind her no matter what.
