8. Awkward Conversations Are the Best, Aren't They?

*In case you were wondering, the hidden joke from the last chapter was that Niall's name means Champion in Gaelic :) *

A few days before graduation, I had my cast removed. And then on June 11, I left high school forever. Somehow, I became the valedictorian for my class and was required to give a speech in front of everyone. So, there I was, walking up to the podium, stomach twisting with nerves. I turned and faced the crowd, looking out at all of them. Inside, I was hoping to see Niall. He had promised to show up some point, but said he would be somewhere in the back, not wanting to draw attention away from the graduates.

I gave the audience one last look and then felt my heart jump. Niall had just showed up in the back of the room. Our eyes met and he gave me the thumb's up. This sign of encouragement made me swallow my fear and start the speech.
"Listen, guys, I'm not going to bore you with a really long speech. I'm just so happy that we actually got to this point in our lives! Over the course of the last four years, we've all seen plenty of ups and downs. I know I certainly have! But I really believe in this class: we will be a great generation of people. Everyone says that high school are the best years of your life, and I agree with my whole heart. So, guys, was it worth it? Was all the studying, exams, and stress worth it? I say, hell yeah, it was!"
The crowd eruppted into cheers, even though I didn't see why they were getting so worked up. I staggered off the stage, legs shaking from pent-up nerves. I made it back to my seat and sank down into it, letting out a breath I didn't know I'd been holding.

A few minutes later, I heard Niall's voice in my ear.
"That was excellent." he saif softly.
I turned my head and grinned giddily.
"I'm just happy it's over!"
Niall kissed me quickly and then said,
"I better head back to my seat."
I clung to his hands, not wanting him to leave.
"Don't go!"
"I have to, but I'll see you later, love. Okay?"
I nodded and he kissed me one last time, then turning and jogging back to his seat, head bowed to efface attention.

Afterwards, we headed back to my house for a graduation party. About half-way through, Niall and I excused ourselves and made our escape, heading to the tiny creek in my neighborhood. We sat down by the water and Niall encompassed me in his arms.
"What do you wish?" I asked in a whisper.
"More than anything else?"
Niall gave a small smile and then said,
"I wish I could freeze time at this moment, right now, and keep it forever. To forever have you laying in my arms on a warm summer night with fireflies dancing all around us."
I turned and put my head into his chest and breathed in deeply. Niall looked down and tilted my chin up.
"Is that a good wish? Would you be okay with it?"
"More than okay."
"What do you wish?" Niall aksed in return.
"I wish- that I was somehow comparable to you."
"What do you mean?"
"You're- so inspiring. Think about it. You're only nineteen years old, and look at all you've done. You're amazing. And then you have me. I'm just average. And I wonder every day why you would choose me, out of everyone else you could have had."
" Ceili, I didn't choose you. No one gets chosen. I wanted you. With everything I had. I practically forced you to go on that first date with me, if you remember! It was like- my heart had taken control of everything, and I surrendered to it happily. Nobody chooses to fall in love. It just happens. Do you understand that?"
I nodded, my chest feeling as if it would explode for the love of this boy.
"Good." Niall said, satisfied.

We sat in silence for a few minutes, until Niall said,
"Ceili, are you happy with how this relationship is going?"
"Wh- Yes, of course I am!" I said, eyes widening.
"What are you trying to say?"
"Ceili- don't freak out. I'm just wondering if you wanted to take things to a further level."
Okay, now I was really freaked out. From what i was getting from the conversation, Niall was suggesting something that I was *not* ready for.
"Niall, I don't think that would be a good idea-" I said nervously.
Niall burst out laughing, and put his arm around me.
"No, Ceili, not anything like that!"
I sighed with relief.
"Oh, Thank God."
At the sight of his face, I backtracked.
"I don't mean it like that! I'm just not- prepared."
"I'm not either."
"So what are you trying to say?"
Niall took a deep breath and then nodded, saying.
"Ceili, do you want to move in with me?"
