Falling Slowly

Asher realizes that all her life she's been in love with the same person, Niall Horan. He's famous, always going places, meeting new people, but when Asher tells him that he's the one, their lives change. Asher and Niall are soul mates and they'll love every little thing about each other.


2. Confession


He didn’t say anything. He just looked at me with the same glow in his eyes. I got up from his arms and opened the door of his room, apologizing for the stupid statement I had just made. Today wasn’t my day for love.

“Wait- Asher.” Niall called out, grabbing my arm.

I looked at him, more tears rushing down from my eyes, “I’m sorry.” I told him, “Just forget that I said that.”

Niall placed his hands around my cheeks and pulled me into a kiss, erasing all thoughts of rejection. I pulled away, surprised by the spark that I felt.

“Whoa.” Niall exclaimed.

“You felt it?” I asked.

He stepped back, sitting down on his bed. His eyes darted back and forth before he looked back at me once more. Niall was being hard to read right now. I leaned against the wall and waited for a response.

He held his hands across his lap, Niall’s bleach blonde hair stood up, bits of brown swimming inside. My heart beat against my chest, could he make this anymore awkward? I needed a response.

“I’ve been waiting for that moment for forever.” Niall claimed.

I smiled, “I can’t believe that I haven’t noticed.”


A door closed from downstairs, Niall’s mum, Maura was home. Niall opened his bedroom door and walked down stairs, I followed him.

“Mum?” Niall called out.

“Yes, I’m in the kitchen love.” Maura replied.

Niall and I walked into the room. Maura saw me and smiled, “Hey Asher, what are you doing here?”

I looked at the ground, “I, uh, broke up with Jake.”

Maura frowned, “Oh, honey, I’m so sorry.”

“Its fine.”

“Okay, well if you ever want to talk, I’m here. I take it you’re spending the night?”

“If you don’t mind.” Niall chimed in.

“Not at all.” Maura smiled, “Let me get your bed ready.”

“Oh, no need.” I said, “Its late, I’ll do it.”

Maura thanked me and gave Niall and I each a kiss on the cheek. She walked upstairs into her bedroom. Niall walked toward the fridge and got out some food and two Coca Colas. He led me into the living room and we sat down on the soft, grey couch.

He lit three candles, as we got comfortable. We’d always do this when we talked late. It was kind of a tradition. I honestly had no idea of what to say to him, so I waited for him to say something.

But nothing happened, “Where does that kiss leave us Niall?” I asked him.

“Where do you want it to leave us?” He asked me.

I looked away, “You tell me.”

He sighed, “I warned you about Jake. How he was a user and that you deserved better.”

“I know.” I said, “And I should have known that you were trying to tell me something.”

“Maybe you didn’t see it then, but now you do.” Niall whispered.

“But what about fame? What about One Direction?”

“I don’t see how that can stop me from being with you.” He ended.

He wrapped his arm around my shoulders, letting me get even more comfortable than I already was. I leaned into him, his heartbeat echoed in my ears. I closed my eyes, feeling the warmth from his body and the three candles that sat on the table.

Niall’s lips planted on my forehead as I drifted off to sleep.




Asher slept comfortably against my shoulder. I didn’t want to wake her, but I wanted to go up stairs to call Liam. My phone buzzed, he had already thought to text me.

LIAM: niiiaaaalllllll

ME: call me

The phone rang and I instantly picked up. Asher moved, slightly snoring. I ran my fingers through her long hair.

“Niall?” Liam asked.


“Why’d you want me to call?”

“Asher told me that she loves me.” I told him.

Liam laughed, “That’s great!”

“I know.”

“You do love her back, right?”

I didn’t say anything, “I love her more than anything actually.”




I woke up for a second before falling back to sleep.

“I love her more than anything.” I heard Niall say.
