8. Bruised Faces and Bloody Noses

Niall's POV

            As I was taking a walk down the road from our hotel in this sketchy neighborhood I saw a car zoom by. I recognized it to be Lauren's but then a short girl stepped out instead of tall 5 foot 8 Lauren. As I was walking closer I noticed it to be Payton. What was she doing here at this time of night... What was I even doing here? She looked so angry. I'd never seen this raged side of her. She went slamming on some house's door. I creeped up in the tree in the front yard of the house and watched. A dude about six foot walked out the door and even I was scared standing from the bushes but Payton didn't even flinch.

            "What the hell is your problem?" she yelled.

            "What are you talking about?" he questioned.

            "You know exactly what I'm talking about. You've been abusing Lauren and she's told me all about it. I couldn't stand you from the beginning, but you've just pushed it over the edge. If you ever even think about laying a finger on her again I will kill you."

            "Oh, I'm so scared I'm shaking. You couldn't possibly even hurt me in your dreams." he said walking away.

            "Hey," she yelled chasing after him grabbing his arm, "I'm not do-"

            At that moment I saw something that should never happen to a woman. Kaleb turned around and slapped Payton's face and she fell to the ground. I started running towards her to help, but stopped when she popped right back up, grabbed Kaleb again to turn him around, and punched him right in the face. Kaleb then grabbed his bleeding nose. He wasn't done though. He started to walk towards her. She didn't know what to do, and then she saw me. I ran over to her and stepped in front.

            "What the hell do you think you're doing?" I said.

            "What any guy should do. Now get out of my way so I can finish her off."

            "Um.. I don't think you'll be finishing anyone off."

            "Yeah we-" Kaleb got cut off as lights started flashing everywhere because the paparazzi had found me. They all kept taking photos and Kaleb ran inside. Each of them asked the same question.

            "Niall is this your girlfriend?"

            Payton and I just pushed through them all and got in Lauren's car. She drove me back to my hotel. As I opened the door she stopped me.

            "Thanks," she said.

            "Yeah, well I was just doing what I could."

            "No, Niall. If you wouldn't have been there I honestly could've been seriously hurt right now. My emotions get the best of me sometimes and I really need to stop doing and start thinking sometimes."

            "Yeah, but you weren't that scared."

            "Niall... Did you see me compared to him? I was confident at first but then when he stepped outside and I remembered that he was at least 10 inches taller than me. I about shit my pants."

            I laughed, "Well Payton, you know I'll always be here. No matter what."

            "Same here. Any time. Any place. I may be tiny, but I'll put up the best fight I can."

            "I could say the same for myself."

            We both laughed.

            "Goodnight Niall'

            "Goodnight Payton," I whispered. I gave her a kiss on the cheek and headed back into the hotel. I thought to myself that I hope Louis knows how special that girl is when my thoughts were interrupted from someone grabbing my shoulder. I turned around and their lips crashed into mine. I opened my eyes to realize it was Payton. I kissed back of course but I couldn't help but think I was dreaming. The sparks flew instantaneously and butterflies erupted in my stomach. I'd never had a kiss like that before. Ever. We both stopped and just looked at each other. She silently turned and walked back to her car so I did the same and just went to my hotel room I shared with Liam and Zayn. When I got into bed I checked my phone. It had a message from Payton. My stomach lit up again.

            It said, "Thanks for everything tonight. I've never had a kiss like that in my entire life. I haven't stopped thinking about you since it happened, but we can't be together. I'm with Lou and it would be wrong for the both of us to do that to him. I hope you can understand."

            I read the messaged and locked my iPhone. I have on read message so she knows I read it. That was one of the best nights of my life until that text message. I can't help my feelings for Payton when I'm around her. She isn't going to hear a word from me. I'll even try my best not to look at her. If we can't be together then we might as well not speak at all... even though it kills me inside to do it.
