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...

45. Iridescent & Irresistible

Niall’s POV

 

“Yes.”

 

As soon as she said that single syllable word, a grin spread across my face. I pulled her closer to me and left a kiss on her temple. She relaxed into me and I watched the flames burn; the flickering light casting shadows over Kodie’s face, illuminating her features.

 

How did I get so lucky?

 

We sat together for a while, but no matter what we did, I didn’t care. I finally had Kodie in my arms and I couldn’t be happier.

 

“Wait,” Kodie turned her head towards me and I froze. “What happened to the s’mores?”

 

“I’ve got the ingredients right here,” I reached to the side and picked up the plastic bag that had the graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows.

 

“Well, get going; I want a s’more.” Kodie slapped my arm. “Can you help me so I don’t burn my poor little marshmallow?”

 

I grabbed a marshmallow roasting stick and speared a marshmallow. Then I wrapped Kodie’s hand around it and wrapped my arms around her and then I guided her hand towards the fire. I rested my chin on her shoulder and watched as Kodie rotated the marshmallow so it toasted evenly. Kodie pulled it away from the fire and I placed it between two crackers with the piece of chocolate.

 

She bit into her s’more and I quickly made one for myself; I had devoured mine and had made my second before Kodie had even finished her first one.

 

I looked at her and cracked up; she had marshmallow and chocolate smeared all around her mouth. “Kodes, you have a little something, right there.” I put my finger on the corner of her lips. She stuck out her tongue and tried licking it off, but failed miserably. “Come here,” I tilted her face towards me and effectively removed the sticky food from her lips with my own mouth. When I pulled back, I could see a faint blush in the light from the fire.

 

The two of us stayed sitting in front of the fire for another hour or so before Kodie began to fall asleep in my lap.

 

After putting out the fire, I picked her up bridal style and walked back to the car.

 

I drove back to my flat and once I had laid Kodie on my bed I texted Rose to let her know Kodie would be staying the night. Rose responded with, “Hands to yourself ;)”.

 

Kodie removed her jacket and tossed it to the side; I grabbed her one of my shirts and she pulled it over her head. She wiggled around before pulling the shirt she had been wearing out from under my shirt and tossing it on top of her jacket.

 

I turned around as she began to pull off her pants and turned back to face her once I heard the sheets being pulled up. Quickly stripping off my clothes and pulling on my sweats, I slipped into bed next to Kodie.

 

Kodie turned to face me and I studied her features, trying to commit them to memory. She had taken her sunglasses off and I could finally see her face in entirety.

 

“Can I ask you something?” I asked and she nodded. “Why do you always wear sunglasses?”

 

“It protects my eyes from the UV light,” she answered.

 

“There’s more to it than that,” I said.

 

Kodie propped herself up, “How do you know?”

 

“You bit your lip; you always do that when you’re nervous or hiding something.” I told her and took her hand in mine.

 

She sighed and played with my fingers before answering. “When I lost my sight, the doctor told me that my eyes might look different as a result of the disease. He said it could range from a minor change, like my eye color changing, to something more serious like a consistent redness or swelling. I wear the glasses because I don’t know what they look like now; what if they have changed for the worst? No one wants to look at that.” Kodie confessed.

 

I saw the tension in her face and knew this was a serious concern of hers; I smoothed the line in between her eyebrows and gently stroked her cheek. “I wouldn’t worry too much; you’re still gorgeous either way.” I honestly told her.

 

“You’re just saying that,” she moved her face away from my hand and further into the pillow.

 

“I’ve never lied to you and I’m not starting now; can you open your eyes for me?” I prodded.

 

Kodie shook her head, “I don’t want you to be disgusted.”

 

“Does that sound like me?” I asked and she shook her head once more. “I just got you back in my life, I’m not going to let you go; I hope you realize that.”

 

“I do,” Kodie said before letting out a deep breath. I watched as her eyes fluttered before she fully opened them.

 

“I told you that you had nothing to worry about,” I told her. The only difference in her eyes was the color. Before she had deep, chocolate brown eyes, but now her eyes were a light golden brown and the outside of her iris was an iridescent green color.

 

“Are you serious?” Kodie asked. “They’re not different?”

 

“Only the color, but they suit you.”  I said before softly singing to her.

 

 

It makes your lips, so kissable

And your kiss unmissable,

Your fingertips so touchable,

And your eyes irresistible.

 

 

“Thank you,” Kodie leaned forward and kissed me. I snaked my hands around her waist and pulled her closer to me. She rested her head against my chest and we fell asleep in the same position.

 

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

 

I woke up the next morning to Kodie leaving feather-light kisses over my face; I surprised her by rolling her over and planting a kiss directly on her lips. “What would you like for breakfast?”

 

“Whatever you feel like making,” she told me while running a hand through my hair.

 

“Chocolate chip pancakes served in bed?” I suggested.

 

“Sounds good to me,” she responded.

 

I climbed out of bed, making sure I didn’t squish Kodie, and headed towards the kitchen. It took me a while, but I finally found all the ingredients I needed and set to making the pancakes.

 

I do know I’m not a terrible cook and I know I’m not the best, but I did not expect to burn the first pancake I tried to make, causing the fire alarm to start beeping. “It’s alright!” I called to Kodie. Quickly, I moved pan off the burner and pulled a chair over to stand on. I fanned the air with a towel and after a couple of minutes the alarm shut off. “The kitchen is still intact! For now.” I muttered the last part to myself.

 

Once everything was back to normal, I got a new pan out and made more pancakes, thankfully without burning any of them. Carefully, I carried them up into my room and set the tray in front of Kodie. For the next hour or so, we ate, talked and laughed and just had fun.

 

I wanted to stay like this, with her, as long as I could, but sadly she said she had to go home to finish a paper that was due the next day. “Can I stay at your place while you write it?” I begged. “I have nothing to do and you don’t want me to be bored do you?”

 

“You’re going to distract me and I’ll never finish,” Kodie protested. I got down on my knees and locked my arms around her waist, repeating ‘please’ until she finally gave in. I mean who can resist the Irish charm?

 

We dressed, separately, and we got in the car to drive back to her house.

 

Kodie got to writing almost as soon as we walked into her flat and it wasn’t until she threatened to never make me cookies again that I finally shut up and let her work in peace.
