6. Waking Up
I woke up in Niall's arms feeling safe, comfortable. It just felt right. I couldn't describe it. But I then mentally sighed. I can't be thinking this. Friends. That's all we will ever be. Then why did you ask him to stay last night? I was such a fuck up.
I turned over to look at him. He looked so peaceful. I didn't want to wake him. I slowly lifted his arms off me and got out of bed. I needed to get away for a bit, to shake these feelings. I went downstairs and wrote Niall a note. I then grabbed all my stuff and left the house. I felt bad leaving without any notice, but I knew I should. Otherwise, he deep blue eyes and perfect hair would convince me to stay. To fall for him. I couldn't have that.
I got home and saw my dad there. I went up and hugged him. "Carrot cake! I've been worried about you!" my dad yelled. He then looked down to see the cast. He frowned. "Dad, it's okay. Just a little accident. But luckily, someone was there to help me. It's all under control." He seemed to brighten up when I said that. "Well then, that's good Elise. Hey, Maria was wondering if you would like to go shopping with her today. It would really mean a lot." Great! That was a perfect way to get things off my mind. "Sounds great dad!"
I felt the sun burn my eyes as I opened them. I quickly got up and shut them. Then I remembered Elise and hoped I didn't wake her. I turned around to see an empty bed. I suddenly felt sad. I mean, we weren't a thing. I shouldn't feel sad that she left. But somehow, I did. Maybe she was downstairs. I ran to the kitchen only to find a note. I messed it up. I scared her off. How the hell did I do that?
I ate breakfast alone, hoping she would come back in the house saying she only left to get something from her house. But, I knew that's not what the note said. Damn it. I needed to do something to get my mind off Elise. I called up the boys. Tonight was going to be fun.
