Guitar and Piano - A Lovely Mix

Niall and Claire Have been friends for the past 2 years. They had met in the music room at school when Claire had been dumped by her boyfriend of 7 months and decided to play the piano for comfort. It was her getaway from the world. Whenever she was feeling sad or lonely, she would a play beautifully sorrowful tune. That's when the Irish exchange student had been happening to walk by and be mesmerized by the magically haunting tune that emanated from the music room. Ever since then, they had been friends, and secretly, been falling for each other.

1. Chapter 1

"Niall! That was supposed to be a C major! not a D minor!"

The sun was setting as Niall and I had been trying to compose our new song that we had been writing together. We haven't been able to sync to each other's paying because he and I had been separated for awhile. He had to go on some family trip out to Lake Tahoe for the summer, and somewhere in the middle of his trip, we had a fight. We both apologized later, but after the 2 month vacation, our separation had a huge impact on our synchronization.

"I'm sorry, I guess I'm just getting tired." I rubbed my temples trying to soothe the massive migraine that was coming on.

"OK. Let's try this one more time, and then you can go home and rest."

"Alright. 1, 2, 3"

We played our song barely in sync and I got frustrated and stopped the session.

"Alright Niall, since this isn't working out right now, why don't you just go home a get some sleep. I'm starting to get a migraine." I stood up from the piano bench and walked to the kitchen to get some advil from the medicine cabinet. He looked at me with a little bit of hurt on his face mixed with concern.

"Are you alright? Do you need me to get you anything?" That was Niall for you. Always showing concern for the people close to him. I waved a hand infront of me signaling him that he doesn't need to do that.

"It's alright Niall. You don't need to get me anything. I can take of myself." that last statement came out more harsh than i wanted it to be. I instantly regretted saying it.

His face showed more pain. "Oh. I'm sorry, I just thought you would need some help-"

I cut him off by placing my hands on his shoulders. "Niall, If you really want to help me, then so be it. If you could start by getting a heating pad from the bottom cabinet in the hall for me then plug it into the wall put it on the couch and turn it on high."

His face lit up. He walked down the hall to get the heating pad. It was my time of the month so these things happened all the time. This was my usual routine when the cramps started acting up. He came back and plugged it into the wall and turned it on high. I uttered a "thank you" as I sat down. I patted the spot next to me motioning for him to sit down. He did as I thought and put his arm around me. I laid my head on his shoulder and closed my eyes.

He kissed the top of my head and I smiled and made a "hmm" sound. I looked up at him and was about to say the thing that has always been on my mind, but thought better of it and decided not to.

He must've noticed this because he asked me what was wrong.

"Oh, nothing. Just happy that you're here."

I felt his chest rise and fall slowly. His heartbeat thudded loudly, and lulled me to sleep. Next thing I know, the darkness envelops me and I'm out like a light.
