You're Mine

*Not Famous*
Zoe and her cousin Niall have always been close, as close as they can be with Niall living all the way Ireland. When an unexpeected event brings Zoe to Ireland to stay with Niall, no one could have ever predicted what could've happened. Not only will Zoe fall for one of Niall's friends, she will be ripped away from everything she's ever known.


3. Seth

After screaming with Tina on the phone for a half hour, we decided to meet at the park with a few of our other friends; Josh, Lilly, Noah, Mandy, Sammie, and Tyler. Tina told me not to invite Seth, but I go ahead and do it anyway. I really do want Seth to meet Niall. 

I throw on a pair of high waisted, button up, red shorts and a sliver and white crop top, with the word 'love' written across the front is red cursive. My silver strapped sandals top off the out fit. My dirty blonde hair is up in a messy pony tail with braids along each side, and my green eyes pop against the dark eye shadow and black mascara. 

With a quick look in the mirror, I trot down the stairs to meet Niall. I find him sprawled on the couch with a bag of Doritos under his left arm, and two-liter of Coke under his right. He methodically shovels handfuls of chips in his mouth. After three handfuls he'll take a swig of Coke and return to the chips, never breaking eye contact with the T.v. 

"This show is cray!" He shouts over his shoulder through a mouthful of chips. I sigh and grab the remote from his lap and click the off button. 

"What the hell, Zo? I was getting into that shit!"

"NIALL JAMES! Watch your language!"

"Sorry Auntie Jen" he mumbles, rolling his eyes. 

Impatiently I grab the chips and soda from his lap and storm into the kitchen. Now I remember why I would get annoyed with him so quickly. "Niall, I told you to be ready in an hour! You had a full hour and your're still in your pajamas! We have to leave in like five minuets!"

He sighs dramatically and throws his night shirt and pajama pants off, leaving them in the middle of the floor and stomps up the stairs. "Sorry, I didn't know I was going to be staying with my mom" he mutters under his breath, not so quietly.

"I heard that!" I shout after him.

"You were supposed to!"

He reappears in a few minuets wearing semi-fitted khakis, a tight, red polo, and vans. I have to try extremely hard to hold back my laughter, and force down the smile on my face. 

"Is that, uhm, what you're, uh, wearing?" I ask, my voice cracking with giggles. 

He stops abruptly on the stairs and slumps down."Ya, that's what I planned.." he answers cautiously. 

I finally lose it, and crack up. He looks so formal! Like he's about to go on a date with a really nice girl and take her to a fancy restaurant. Not going to hang out with friends at the park. I jog up the stairs and grab his arm, pulling him up with me. 

"Niall. You've got to understand the fashion's in America are so far behind what they are in the UK. What was popular two years ago there, is now popular here. So, you're pretty much ahead of your time with that outfit. Let me see your suitcase."

He plops down on my bed, and grabs my math binder off my nightstand, flipping through it and ignoring everything I say. "Who's Seth?"

I should probably tell him about Seth before he meets him. That might help. 

"You've got like three thousand doodles of your name and his in little hearts. Aww, is little Zoe in love?" He teases. 

I snag the binder out of his hands, my face turning pink and toss it in my closet. I forgot about all the doodles, damn it. Now I have to tell him about Seth. 

"Seth is my boyfriend, Niall. We've been going out for almost five months now."

He sits up and looks at me confused. 

"Why didn't you tell me about him?"

"Cause you get kind of protective and stuff, Ni."

He does, to. I remember being in Mullingar and I was only like nine, but I had a crush on this boy, if you could even call it a crush at that age, and I asked him to be my boyfriend. He said yes and we walked home holding hands. Niall seen us and scared the kid off, telling him he's going to kick his but if he doesn't leave his little cousin alone. Niall's two years older than me, so he was eleven, and the boy I had a crush on never spoke to me again.

"Well, yeah. I don't want some asshole hu-"

"Niall James Horan. If I have to tell you one more time to watch your language, so help me God.."

He groans as my mom scolds him. "How is it every time I swear, you happen to be conveniently walking by or some thing, Auntie Jen?"

"I don't know Niall, but I'm serious. I'm a cuss word away from calling your dad."

He again mumbles his apologies and drops his gaze. He's got to learn that my mom is not one for cuss words. I can hardly say fricken in front her her, let alone a swear word. Although, watching Niall constantly get scolded is pretty amusing. 

"Anyway," I say, picking up our conversation after I know my mom's out of ear shot.

"Seth is going to be at the park with us today, and I want you to be nice, okay? I really like him, Niall."

He groans and reluctantly agrees to be nice. "Fine. But if I see one thing I don't like about the kid, Zoe.." he trails off. 

I shake off his warning and toss him a pair of plaid shorts to change into. He can keep on polo as long as it matches. Out of the room and down the stairs, I wait for him. Nervous anticipation and excitement bubbles in me, as he trots down the stairs. 

"Much better. Ready?"

He hold out his arm and I loop mine through it, letting him escort me out to the car.
