Happy Days

After Lindsey and her boyfriend move in together, she becomes worried that she isn't happy. But can she remember the good days to remind her why she agreed?


14. Christmas Eve

We flew in Christmas eve, and I hadn't hears from Niall all day. He's working, I reassured myself. Bella and I called a taxi to come and get us, and the streets were flooded. Snow was falling in sheets and covered the ground and just about everywhere you looked. On the sidewalk were melted footprints, familys and children running through the streets. Couples huddled to keep warm, coats and scarves around them, clutching their hands together so they won't freeze. This year, one of those couples wouldn't be Niall and I.

"Hey, have you heard from Niall at all?" I looked over to Bella in the opposite seat from me. "Uh, well I um.. No." She made a face at me and looked at the twinkling lights on all the little shops. That was odd, I said to myself.

Bella and I made it back to the house by showing the driver back roads, and we thanked him, leaving a tip in the passenger seat. "Do ya want to see if any Christmas programs are on?" Bella snapped me back into reality. "I dont really care to, make yourself at home though. I might go to bed."

I was disappointed, this was the first year I would have spent with Niall, and he's at work in another country. Bella knocked on my door. "I'm gonna go to bed too, see ya in the morning." "Bright and early." I smiled. In one of my suitcases was her Christmas gift, but I was too lazy to get it out until morning.

There was an abnormally loud bang at the front door, and I jumped when I heard it. "Bella. Is- is that you?" No reply. "Bella for christ sakes, don't slam the door." Still, nothing.

I got out of bed and the house was dimmed. I could barely see, and by the time I made it into the living roo m my eyes adjusted and I saw a taller shadow of someone standing in front of me. Before I could scream, my mouth was covered and I was pinned against the couch.
