4. My Secret Place

Olivia's P.O.V.

I look up at Niall, his brown roots showing in his blond hair and his eyes a sea of blue. He. Looks. Perfect! His eyes are smiling along with his lips and he looks so carefree. We run through the house and up to some French doors, our hands fitting together like the pieces of a puzzle. He unlocks the doors and we both run out, him guiding me! I laugh, thinking that we must look like lunatics, normal people don't run through a garden at nearly one in the morning in nothing but their pajamas!

The wind is blowing my hair all over the place but I don't care. I feel like I can be myself around him.

We finally stop outside a beautiful wooden gazebo this is intertwined with the branches of multiple trees, inside are cushions. But to my surprise we don't go inside, instead Niall sits by the trunk of a huge tree and gently pulls me down, "This is my secret place."

I feel my breath being taken away, he showed me his secret place.

"When the weather is nice I like to sit here and watch the stars or lay in the sun as I play but then when the weather is bad I like to sit in the gazebo. It is the perfect place to just get away from everyone. It is quiet and perfectly camouflaged!"

"Don't forget beautiful!" I exclaim with a laugh.

He laughs too, "Yes it is definitely beautiful... but not as beautiful as you!" His eyes search mine, my heart beat is so loud, I feel as if he can hear it!

I don't know how to reply to that. But I do know one thing; I have to resist his charms, I am sure that a relationship with him is against the rules. So I decided to just joke it off, "Your not too bad yourself!"

We sit in a comfortable silence for a few minutes until Niall decides to break it "So, are you going to sing for me then?" He asks eyeing my guitar.

I smile a cheeky smile and reply, "I will sing for you if you sing for me first!"

He laughs and put on a shocked face, "I'm sorry Darling but that is not how it works, I asked you first!"

I sighed a happy sigh and gave up. I couldn't help but smile and be happy, he called me 'Darling'! Then I picked up my guitar and started to play the opening chords of 'One Thing'.

Niall's P.O.V.

She was so good, her voice made me feel like I could just melt then and there, and as she got to the last chorus I joined in, our voices harmonizing together perfectly.

"Get out, get out, get out of my mind,

And come on, come into my life,

I don't, I don't, don't know what it is,

But I need that one thing,

And you've got that one thing!"

As she played the finishing chords I couldn't help but smile. I watched her as she began to look at the ground! "That was phenomeNiall!" I joked and she laughed at my pun, "And, it looks like you've already impressed one of the guest mentors!"

Olivia's P.O.V.

I smiled, laughing at his play-on-words, but then my face looked the picture of confusion, "One of...?" I asked, I was sure there was only one guest mentors.

"Erm... Well your not supposed to know, but I guess I have already let the cat out of the bag, and you'll find out tomorrow anyway... The boys and I, were all guest mentors!"

"Really!" I asked, excited.


"Anyway, I did my part of the deal, now it's your turn. So, what are you going to sing for me?"

Niall's P.O.V.

I smiled, "That's a surprise!" I exclaimed and then ran through every song I could think of in my mind, trying to find the perfect song and then I found it. Began to play the chords of this normally rocky song and began to sing the first verse, changing the lyrics slightly, "Do you remember summer '012?,

Wanna go back there every night,

Just can't lie, was the best time of my life,

Lying under the tree as the sun blew out,

Playing this guitar by the fire too loud..."

She giggled at the lyric changes as I went through the song. Finally I sung the last two lines, meaning every word I sung, "I want you to hit the pedal, heavy metal, show me you care,

I want you to rock me, rock me, rock me, yeah!"

I played the ending chords and looked up at the girl sat in front of me, looking into her eyes, seeking approval.

"That was amazing!" She exclaimed.

"Amazing? Don't you use AmaZayn?" I joked.

She smiled and then looked to the ground again, "I do, but I didn't want to seem weird!" She muttered, just loud enough for me to hear.

"Nahh! It's cute. Your cute!" I said and then we both looked to the ground and sat in another comfortable silence.

That's when it hit me, I don't even know her name, so I broke the silence, "I bet a beautiful girl like you has a beautiful name, but I can't be sure because you have told me it!"

She looked up and smiled, "I'm Olivia. Olivia Jones."

"See I knew it. Bea-utiful! Anyway, I'm Niall. Niall Horan!" I mimicked and she laughed her fantastic laugh.

Olivia's P.O.V.

He thinks I'm beautiful! He thinks my name in beauitful! He mimicked me and I laughed and as I laughed, he laughed with me. His laugh is just... PhenomeNiall! 

"So Olivia, will you help me tick something off my bucket list?" He asked me, I nodded and he stood up, offering me his hand which I gladly took. He pulled me up and led me to the middle of the clearing, right outside of the wooden gazebo.

"I've always wanted to slow dance under the moonlight with a beautiful girl!" He informed me, looking straight into my eyes.

I smiled, my heart melting inside. I placed my arms around his neck as I asked, "Really?"

He placed both of his hands on my hips and we swayed under the silvery light of the moon, "Of course, why?" He asked, intrigued.

"It's on my bucket list too!"
