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...

Kodie's outfit for the party------------> http://www.polyvore.com/new_years_eve_party/set?id=67746340

 

Niall’s POV

Kodie was still dazed when we returned to my flat; I could tell because she kept opening her mouth to say something then closed it before saying anything.

I sat her on the couch, sat across from her and held on to her hands, “Are you okay?”

“I-I…I think so,” she stammered.

“You don’t sound so sure,” I laughed.

“Well that’s because Simon freaking Cowell thinks I’m a good singer!” Kodie exploded, bouncing up and down in her seat.

I smirked at her excitement. “If you auditioned with me, you would’ve known that 2 years ago,” I pointed out.

Kodie slapped my cheek, “Have you been taking sass lessons from Louis?”

I grinned, “That’s a possibility.”

She huffed and lay back against the couch, a grin slowly creeping back onto her face. I slowly counted down in my head, waiting for her freak out session.

10, 9, 8, 7…

 

Kodie’s lips parted, showing her now-braces free smile.

 

6, 5, 4…

 

She started bouncing her knee up and down, trying not to show her excitement.

 

3, 2…

Kodie’s other knee started bouncing too and she balled her hands into fists.

 

1…

 

“AHHHHHH!” Kodie screamed, before rolling over and burying her face into the couch cushions. Wow, I have never gotten the countdown so on point before; Kodie was usually a second or two ahead of me.

Once that was out of her system, she rolled back over to face me. “You calm now?” I asked.

“Mhmm, I just cannot believe this is happening. I mean I never thought this could happen. YouTube is one thing, but actually getting the chance to make it big is just incredible.” Kodie gushed.

“You sound excited,” I noted.

“I am, but I can’t really wrap my brain around the thought that Simon actually thought I was a decent singer. And then there is the fact that I’m blind. I don’t believe many companies would sign a blind person for the reason of everything being 10 times more difficult.” Kodie admitted.

“But you’re still an incredible singer and that’s all that matters,” I argued.

She huffed and stayed quiet. A couple seconds later, Liam walked in and sat down next to me. “You both still coming to the New Year’s Eve party?” He asked.

“I most definitely am,” I answered and we looked over to Kodie.

She nodded her head with a smile, “Hell yeah. Rosie and her boyfriend are coming too, if that’s alright.”

“Yeah, of course,” Liam replied.

 

~`~`~`~`~`~

 

I walked up to Liam’s door and I could already hear the music thumping through the walls. I grinned it was only 10 p.m. and we were about to get drunk and have fun. I knocked on the door and Liam opened it with a smile.

Looking around, I saw people dancing, flirting and drinking. Zayn was standing behind a DJ stand playing the music, Harry was dancing with a couple of girls, Liam was talking to Andy and Louis was standing with a drink in hand talking to Eleanor. I spotted a head of purple-blonde hair and at a closer look, I saw that it was Perrie and next to her was a pretty brunette in a white dress.

Her dress was a modest length which was refreshing seeing as most girls wore as little clothes as possible. The girls’ hair was pulled up and curled which accented her single bare shoulder while the other side had a sequined strap. My jaw dropped as the girl twirled around and I realized that it was Kodie.

Why did I keep having these thoughts about her?

I kept my eyes on her as she danced with Perrie, laughing and looking completely carefree. After she confessed her fears to me in the park, I just wanted her to be happy. Kodie didn’t deserve this; no one did, but especially to have it happen so suddenly made it even worse.

Not even an hour later, I had drunk 3 bottles of beer and I am currently dancing with some random people. It was almost midnight and everyone here was having a good time. Liam really knew how to throw a party.

Zayn asked me to cover the music, so I did and he made his way to the dance floor to have a dance with Perrie. I played the music for the next 45 minutes or so until there was only 15 minutes left until New Year’s. I set the music so it would keep playing without me monitoring it and left to find Kodie on the dance floor.

I saw a flash of white and somewhat stumbled over to her. I wasn’t completely drunk, everything was just a little blurred around the edges. I grabbed her by the waist and pulled her against me, slowly moving to the beat of the song I picked out.

Kodie let out a slight squeak, but relaxed when I whispered, “It’s me.”

“How are you? You’re actually a pretty good DJ.” Kodie said to me.

I scrunched my eyebrows, “Thanks…I think.”

“No, it’s a good thing. It’s just unexpected.” She admitted.

I smiled at her and moved to the Nicki Minaj song Turn Me On, Kodie moving with me. She turned around and I placed my hands on her hips and we danced together for the next couple of songs.

Harry though, interrupted us and asked Kodie to dance. Somewhat regretfully, I let her go and went to get something non-alcoholic drink. Once I had my soda, I turned around and nearly spit it out when I saw how close they were dancing. It’s nothing against Harry; I just don’t want Kodie to get hurt. You’re supposed to feel this protective over your little sister, right?

I gritted my teeth and pulled my eyes away from them. Right about now, I wish I had someone to kiss at midnight, someone who cares about me and who I care about. But being in the band made things a lot harder finding someone who likes me for me, and not as a famous singer.

All I wanted was to find a girl that I could spoil and spend my time with; a girl that would miss me when I was traveling and would wait for me to get back.

5 minutes left until midnight and I went back to the dance floor. I danced with a girl that seemed nice and not too clingy, which was a lot better than dancing with an extremely desperate girl. Trust me been there; not a pretty sight.

1 minute left.

All of a sudden, the music cut and the TV was turned on to the broadcast of the countdown. Everyone in the room turned to face the screen.

30 seconds.

I looked around, trying to find Kodie so I could be the first to wish her a Happy New Year.

10 seconds.

I saw the back of her ponytail and made my way over, pushing through the crowd to get to her. Everyone was chanting along with the T.

10…9…8…7…6…5…4…3…2…1

“Happy New Year!” everyone cheered.

I stopped short when I saw who Kodie was with and what they were doing. She was standing extremely close to Harry.

My heart twisted painfully; they were kissing.
