I woke up in an unfamiliar place. I started to panic until I remembered that I was at Niall's. How the hell did I get in a bed? The last thing I remember is watching the movie. He must of carried you up to his bed. Aw how sweet. No Elise. You can't think like that. You just met him. But he seemed so sweet and down to earth last night. I was so confused.
I went downstairs to see Niall sleeping on the couch. I didn't want to wake him so I decided to just explore his place. After checking out the bottom floor, I went back upstairs. I then found myself in a room dedicated to guitars. Most of them were acoustic. Having nothing better to do, I picked one up and started playing. At first I played and sang a couple of Ed Sheeran songs. Then, I started playing some songs I wrote. After I finished singing 'This Song Is About You', I heard clapping. I looked up to see Niall standing there. I blushed and asked, "How long have you been standing there?" "Long enough to know that you are really talented," he answered smiling. His smile was so cute. "Oh. But I'm not that great." He came over and sat by me. He whispered, "I think you are amazing and beautiful." I turned towards him, knowing what was gonna happen, but I couldn't. Right before his lips met mine, I jumped up to put the guitar away. "So, what do you want for breakfast?" I asked him while running down the stairs. I felt bad but I couldn't kiss him. Kissing meant having feelings for him, which I don't think I could handle right now. He would probably end up hurting me anyways. I wasn't anything special.
I woke up on the couch and I checked my phone. Four new messages and they were all from the boys.
Louis: How was last night? ;) Hope you used a condom...
Harry: Did ya get any bro?
Zayn: Did you have fun last night? haha
Liam: Good morning! :)
Oh Liam. I put my phone down and got up. That's when I heard singing. I went upstairs to find Elise playing one of my guitars and singing a song I didn't recognize. Damn. This girl was good. When she finished, I clapped. She looked up and seemed embarrassed. She started blushing which I thought was so cute. "How long have you been standing there?" She asked. I smiled and told her, "Long enough to know you are really talented." She then said she wasn't that great which made me go over to her. How could she say that? I whispered next to her, "I think you are amazing and beautiful." She turned to look at me. I wanted to kiss her so bad. Something about her just pulled me to her. I went in, but she quickly got up and put away the guitar. Oh God. Now she's going to think I'm a freak. She went downstairs saying something but I didn't hear her. I felt really bad and embarrassed. I dreaded going down to the kitchen but I knew I had to eventually. My stomach growled. That was my signal.
I went down and I could smell something heavenly. "Are you making something love?" I asked. Once I got in the kitchen I saw Elise in my sweats and my 'Free Hugs' t-shirt. Even in that, she looked hot. Stop thinking about that. She obviously didn't like you back. "Um yeah. I hope that's okay. I usually make pancakes for my dad. He says I make the best." Elise turned and smiled at me. "Well, I'll be the judge of that," I said, trying to act like nothing happened. She giggled and went back to cooking. I kept replaying the events of last night and this morning in my head. I swear she seemed to like me last night. It didn't feel right. I knew I had fallen for her. She was stunning and just an amazing girl. I couldn't take it anymore.
"Do you not like me or something?" I blurted out. Shit! I wasn't supposed to say that. Now I knew she was gonna think I was some weirdo. "I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to say that. It just came out. But....I do want to know. I mean, I thought we were hitting it off last night. I really do like you Elise." I looked up to see her shocked face. I apologized again and excused myself to my room. I am such an idiot.
Elise's POV (Just quick little thoughts)
After Niall ran off, I was shocked. I thought he didn't like me that way but now I knew he did. I finished making the pancakes so they wouldn't burn and then just sat on the ground. I definitely had feelings for him, but I couldn't shake the feeling that it wouldn't work out. Just like it didn't work out for my parents, my brother, or for me. I then thought that Niall and I could just be good friends. Like brother and sister, but the brother and sister have feelings for each other.
I shut my door and crashed onto my bed. I felt like I was going to cry but I couldn't be a wuss about this. It was just one girl. But it was one girl who I was falling for. One girl who I felt I could tell anything to. One girl who made me feel like I was on top of the world. God damn it Horan. Why did she have to be so perfect?
I heard a knock at my door. "Come in," I said not wanting to be rude. I saw the door open and Elise came through. "Hey. Breakfast is ready." She then quickly left. Have I really scared her off? I then went downstairs and to the table. I tried to be positive and put on a smile. I sat down and devoured the pancakes. "I think I agree with your dad." She smiled and gave out a little laugh. "Thought you would. I don't just talk the talk. I walk the walk," Elise said while doing some weird, but adorable walk. I started cracking up and she soon joined me. After we both finally managed to stop laughing, I asked her if she just wanted to hang out here today since she couldn't do much with her broken ankle. She said that she thought that would be fun but she had to get her phone from home and tell her dad.
After we got back into the car from getting Elise's phone, we started to drive away. Only then did she realize that she forgot a set of spare clothes. "It's okay Elise. I think you look cute in that anyways." She blushed. I fought the urge to kiss her.
All we did for the rest of the day was watch movies and talk. It was all just making me fall more in love with her. She curled up next to me for movies and I put my arm around her. I felt like this was so right. I couldn't explain it. She ended up falling asleep again at around 10 P.M. I tried to lift her up and put her on my bed without waking her again but I failed. She woke up just as I was leaving. "Don't leave," she whispered. So I went back closing the door and got into the bed with her. I put my arms around her and we fell asleep.
