9. Thank You


~Nicki’s P.O.V.~

-Nicki’s dream-

What’s going on? I see a red string leading me somewhere in a pure white building. Taking that I’m probably the only one here I followed it. I walked for what seemed like forever until I turned the last corner and saw a figure with wings. It was beautiful, lights shining behind it, it looked like an angel. I cautiously paced towards the figure. The closer I got the more I could see the figure’s face. It was so familiar, I knew it too well to forget, the first person I ever fell in love with…. Isaac. There were two more figures behind him but I couldn’t identify them. I didn’t care about that right now. I ran like my life depended on it, but every step I took he began to fade. When I came into reach I jumped to him but he was gone.

-End of dream-

I woke up panting heavily with tears pouring down my cheeks. He’s gone, Isaac’s gone. I scrunched up to my knees and just cried. I took a sharp, frightened breath when I felt two muscular arms engulf me from behind.

“Shh, it’s okay, it’s me.” It was Louis. I took a quick turn and leapt into his arms making him lay back on the bed. He lifted my head up to meet his,” Hey, it’s going to be alright. You’ll get through this, and I’ll help you through it. All of it. Anything, I’ll be there, just call me and I’ll be there. Always.” His words, every single word, I knew he meant it. From the sound of his voice it hurt him to see me like this. Why didn’t I realize this before? I calmed my breath and managed to stop crying, although my breathing was still unstable.

“Thank you, Lou. I really wouldn’t know what I would do without you guys. I’m sorry you had to see me like that.”

“Don’t be sorry. Everybody has these times.”

“Yeah, but why of all people must it be me?” I questioned. Why couldn’t I have finished my relationship and ended it normally? Why do I have to be burdened with this? I was on the verge of crying again but I decided that I would try my best to stay strong and not worry the boys.

“I’m sorry, Nicki I don’t the answer. But what I do know is things happen for a reason and like you said, maybe it wasn’t meant to be.” He knew exactly what to say. We just lay there in silence. “Hey, how about we go get some ice cream, just the two of us.” All I could managed was a nod. “Okay, I’ll be downstairs. We’ll leave when you’re ready.”



I looked at the clock and it was noon. I looked at myself in the mirror before I left downstairs where Louis was waiting for me. I reached the bottom and forced out a small grin.

“Ready?” Louis asked.

“Where’re you guys going?” Zayn asked through gritted teeth. I got the feeling he was mad.

“I’m taking Nicki to get some ice cream.” Lou answered.

“Alright well the rest of us are going to get some movies and snacks for tonight.” Liam added on to the conversation. I love movie nights. It takes my mind off everything.

“Sounds great!” I said a little too happy.

“Well someone loves movies,” Harry said teasing me. I just stuck my tongue out at him. Everyone laughed and Lou and I laughed.


We were in the car when one of my favorite songs came on the radio, Isn’t She Lovely by Stevie Wonder. I started singing along when I heard Lou join in “Isn’t she lovely, isn’t she wonderful, isn’t she precious, less than one minute old. I never thought that through love we’d be….” That’s when I stopped.

“Lou!” I said surprised.

“What?” he asked confused.

“You didn’t tell me you could sing!”

“You never told me you could sing…” he reflected my words back to me.

“Ohh uh uh, no I can’t but you can.” I said denying his words.

“Actually, we all can.”


“The other boys can sing too…”

“What?! Why didn’t anybody tell me?”

“We sing in the house all the time, I guess you haven’t noticed. You could sing too so we found it natural.”

“I feel stupid.” I said and he just giggled. We sang the rest of the song in harmony and arrived at the ice cream parlor.


We ordered our ice cream and sat at the table in the corner near a window.

“Hey, Lou?”


“Thank you.”

“For what?” he said in bewilderment.

“Everything. Comforting me. Being there when I need someone. I don’t want to feel like a weakling anymore. I don’t want to be one of those girls who lock themselves up in a dark world of their own after a breakup. Yet I never want to forget him. I wanna move on.” I said playing with my ice cream a little.

“And if you need someone to pick you up when you fall, the boys and I will be there for you.” I looked up to meet his eyes and just realized how beautiful he was. I was taken out of my gaze when he took his spoon and put the ice cream on my nose. I gasped and did the same. We ended up laughing the rest of the time we were there and headed back home.


~Zayn’s P.O.V.~

Louis and Nicki walked through the door and I was so relieved. They spent 3 hours eating ice cream. I didn’t like the idea of just the two of them going out together. And in addition walking in laughing and smiling like a couple.

“Looked who’s home.” Harry said a little annoyed.

“Sorry, we lost track of time,” Louis responded.

“Well we have a lot of time before it turns dark. What do you guys wanna do?” Liam asked. Well it was only 3 in the afternoon.

~Nicki's P.O.V.~

We played truth or dare until midnight and started the movie. We agreed on watching The Possesion. I could never really handle scary movies so I snuggled into Louis under the blanket. I wrapped my arms around his torso and turned my head whenever a scary part came on. When the movie was over we all just crashed in the living room where we were. Before I fell asleep I thought to myself I got through my first day after what happened with Isaac, and it’s all thanks to the  boys.
