25. Fifteen Years Later - Sunday Lunch 2

Emma’s POV

Logan was standing at the door, leaning on the doorframe with his hands deep into his jeans’ pockets, watching me. I stayed on my back on my bed, looking blankly at the ceiling. ‘What’s up, Logan?’ I asked, pledging ignorance to the way he felt about me.

Logan shrugged, not replying. Then, he walked to my bed and lay down beside me. He stared at my face, while I kept staring at the ceiling. After a while, he asked, ‘Do you want to go to the movies, tonight?’

I shrugged. ‘Sure,’ I replied. ‘What movie do you and Eddie want to watch? I hope it’s not an adventure one again.’

Logan was quiet for a moment. Then, he said, ‘Actually, I’m thinking of a horror film and I want to go alone with you.’

I looked at him. ‘Are you asking me out on a date, Logan Malik?’ I asked with a fake little smile.

Logan grinned. ‘You know I am.’

I sighed, sitting up. Logan sat up, too, brushing his arm against mine on purpose. ‘We’ve talked about this before, Logan,’ I began, kind of frustrated. ‘You’re like a little brother to me and I’m not going to risk ruining what we already have by going out on a date with you. Besides, I’m too weird for you.’

‘That’s true. You’re weird,’ Logan agreed jokingly, nodding, and I hit him playfully on the arm. Logan turned serious before he went on, ‘But you’re beautiful.’

I rolled my eyes. ‘That’s not shallow at all,’ I said, scolding a little bit.

Logan laughed. ‘Can I at least have a kiss?’ he asked with an impish smirk.

I nodded, but when I tried to kiss his cheek, he turned and our lips touched. I quickly pulled away. ‘You sneaky boy,’ I complained, hitting him on the arm again, but not so playfully anymore.

‘Totally worth it,’ Logan said, smiling smugly, getting up.

‘You sneaky boy,’ I repeated, shaking my head, and Logan laughed, leaving my room.

Then, I fell back on the bed, hid my face with my hands and groaned, thinking, why can’t I have what I want!? It was so unfair. And right at that moment, uncle Niall asked, ‘What’s wrong, cupcake?’ At the sound of his voice, I gasped, jumping up and out of bed.

‘H-hey, uncle Niall,’ I stuttered. ‘What are you doing in my room?’ I asked, blushing.

Uncle Niall folded his arms before he replied, ‘I was heading to the bathroom when I saw you moping, so, I came inside to see if everything’s alright.’

‘Oh, haha, I wasn’t moping! I was, um, thinking about how hungry I am,’ I lied, rubbing my stomach. Uncle Niall threw his head back and laughed loudly. Gosh, I loved the way he laughed, so, I stared at him shamelessly, biting the inside of my mouth, smiling.

‘I’m hungry, too, angel,’ he told me, smiling big at me. Uncle Niall had all this cute nicknames for me and my stomach tightened up every time he called me one of them. Did he honestly not know how he could make me feel!? He continued, ‘Let me go to the bathroom and then we’ll go downstairs together, yeah?’

I nodded, and when he left, I quickly checked myself in the mirror. When he returned, uncle Niall put his arm around my shoulder and led me downstairs. I glued my arms to my sides, restraining myself from wrapping them around his stomach and burying my face into his neck. He always smelled so lovely and he was always so warm. When Dad saw us coming down the stairs, he shot uncle Niall a warning look, and the blonde guy chuckled, withdrawing his arm from around me.

Our living room was filled with people. The triplets and Eva were still watching their favorite cartoon show on the telly. Eddie, Logan and Andy were discussing something with a too serious look on their faces. They were probably talking about girls or football. Those were the only things they ever talked about. When Logan spotted me, he looked at me for a moment before he winked at me and went on talking with Eddie and Andy. Jessie was dancing around everyone. She was obsessed with dancing.

Uncle Niall joined Dad, uncle Liam, uncle Louis and uncle Zayn. They were discussing their new album, which was released a few weeks ago. As always, it was a huge success. It went straight to number one all over the planet the very first day of its release.

When I went in the kitchen, I found Mom, auntie Eleanor and auntie Dani sitting around the kitchen table. They were telling each other how their husbands were in bed.

‘Harry’s always so sweet and pampering in bed,’ Mom said, swooning, and auntie Eleanor and auntie Dani giggled, sipping their wine.

MOM!’ I squealed, putting my hands over my ears. ‘I really don’t want to know these things about dad.’ The three of them laughed before they continued their discussion in lower voices. I rolled my eyes and went to set the table.

Half an hour later, it was lunch time, so, we all gathered in the dining room and sat around the dining room table. I sat next to uncle Niall, of course. Logan tried to sit next to me, but Eddie didn’t let him.

‘Dude, stop hitting on my sister,’ Eddie told Logan, playfully punching him on the shoulder. And then, Eddie dragged Logan on the other end of the table.

‘How’s school, cupcake?’ uncle Niall asked, grabbing my attention, putting his arm on the back of my chair.

I shrugged, doing my best not to stare at his handsome face. ‘Okay, I guess.’

‘Do you have a boyfriend?’ uncle Niall asked, his face hardening. ‘Because, if you do, and he doesn’t treat you good, let me know and I’ll kick his arse.’

I laughed a little. ‘No, uncle Niall, I don’t have a boyfriend,’ I replied, embarrassed.

‘A beautiful girl like you, why not?’ he asked with a furrowed brow.

Great. I was blushing terribly now. I shrugged, looking at my knees. ‘I don’t know,’ I lied.

‘Ah, I get it,’ uncle Niall said, smiling, and I looked at him. He went on, ‘It’s because you already like someone, don’t you, cupcake?’

I swallowed with difficulty and parted my lips to reply but my mouth felt too dry. If you only knew, I thought, staring into his bright blue eyes.

‘Okay, let’s eat,’ Dad told everyone from the head of the table, kissed Mom’s fingers and dug in. By the time I turned to uncle Niall, he was already eating and talking with uncle Zayn. I sighed, shrugged and started eating, too, thinking that another Sunday lunch would be over really soon.


*Sigh* Okay, so, Trouble in Paradise has come to its end, too. I'm always a little sad when I finish a story. But, I'm already working on a sequel, because, I think it'll be interesting to write about Emma's life and I have a few ideas, too, so, there you go! The sequel will be called, Teenage Years, and it'll pretty much be a Niall story! I haven't written a story about Niall so far, so, I'm kind of excited about that.

But anyhoo, THANK YOU all so much for reading, hope you liked the last chapter and hope you're as excited about Teenage Years as I am! Eek! Love ya all! Marlboro. :) xx
