17. A New Life


I collected my purse and car keys, Everything I owned back in Canada was delivered in Ireland last weekend, just another sign that this was becoming my new life. I walked out of Niall's house wearing his blue flannel shirt and jean shorts. It was the first of July now, because of my situation I ended up dropping out of school. I was sort of lost as to where I was going to work. Niall insisted I should focus on getting better but I couldn't just sit around all day and do nothing. I hopped into to my black range rover and made my way to town, I pulled into a small shopping plaza when my cell phone buzzed.

I snatched it up and hit the call button, "Hello?" I answered before turning the engine off. "Where did you go? No message? why didn't you wake me?" an angry irish accent asked on the other side of the call. "Niall, I'm not a baby, I think I can't go to a simple grocery store without being looked after." This whole watching over me thing was starting to get on my nerves. "Well I'd at least like to know where you're going" he said sympathetically, I decided I wasn't going to argue. "Yes, you're right, I should've told you where I was going. I'll remember to do so next time." before he could answer I pressed end and walked into the plaza. I wasn't actually grocery shopping though, I was going in for my first job interview at Burn The Drums Music shop.

The store held the lingering scent of coffee and some Indie song was playing throughout the shop. "Hi, I'm here for my job interview" I shook hands with the manager before he lead me into his office. I was hired on the spot, "I'm desperate for workers, would it be too much if I asked you to work today?" his grey eyes searched my face for a yes. I couldn't refuse, I definitely was not going to get on this guys bad side. "Um, yeah sure. Do I need a uniform?" He quickly got out of his seat to pull a black t-shirt out of one of his many filing cabinets.

The job wasn't all that bad. I mostly worked at the cash but it was cool to see what instruments people were purchasing. I was just about to text Niall when two teenage girls came up to the cash, they looked to be about 15 or 16. "Oh my God, Teneasha look who it is" they both looked at me as if I was some sort of prize. "You're friends with Niall aren't you?" The girl named Teneasha asked. "Yeah, I suppose so" I smiled at them as they passed me a guitar strap to check out for them. "This is the coolest thing ever, are you guys like a thing?" The other girl asked, with a wide grin plastered on her face. I laughed, not really sure what to say. I didn't know if we were offical, then again Niall did tell Harry I was his girlfriend at the dinner party a few days ago. "Yeah, we're actually a couple I think" The girls exchanged confused glances with each other. "What do you mean, you think?" Teneasha now was studying my face. "I don't know, It's sort of complicated" I shrugged. "Well, I'm Samantha but you can just call me Sam. would it be too much to ask if you gave my number to Harry? I heard he's single now." I laughed when she passed me the piece of paper with her name and number on it. It was so strange not being the crazed fan this time. "Sure, I can't make any promises that he'll call though." It stung to tell her the painful truth. I knew even if I did give it to him the boys didn't have time for silly fans like her. I waved goodbye as she and her friend left the shop.

I picked up my phone to dial Niall's number when to my utter shock both Harry and Taylor walked into the shop. Shit what were they doing here? I ducked down behind the counter so they wouldn't see me. "Katy? Is that you?" I squeezed my eyes shut before reluctantly standing back up. I gave Taylor a forceful smile as she stood in front of the cash with a just as equal fake smile. She turned around searching the room for Harry; he had vanished somewhere in the aisles. Her smile immediately vanished when she spun back around. "So, You're working in a music store I see, Why bother when you have a millionaire boyfriend? he cut you off yet?" She looked me up and down and chuckled."Or did he dump your fatass?" Taylor's lip went up in a curl, but I could see her evil smile behind it. Even though I was hurt by her words, I wasn't letting her off so easily. "Taylor, I see you and Harry are back together. I'm surprised he'd still want your sorry ass back.. how much did you pay him?" I smirked, proud of my come back. Taylor slammed her hand onto the counter. "I didn't pay him anything, he loves me and I love him. Sorry that he isn't available for your collection." she spat.

I choked out a laugh at her words. "Unlike you, I have one boyfriend and one boyfriend only. What happened to your ex's Conor, Zack or Joe? oh the list goes on." Done with her useless drama I waved her off, going back to counting some money. "Oh, I'm not done with you just yet sweetheart. You almost ruined our perfect relationship, dont think I can't ruin yours." with that she tossed her long, curly blonde hair and trotted away.She walked like she had something up her ass, I started to giggle at my inside joke. She so wasn't worth my time.


"I didn't realize grocery shopping took 6 hours long, what else were you up to?" Niall and I stood in the kitchen unpacking my purchases as he interrogated me. "Oh, I decided to get some alone time at the mall, gave myself some time to think you know?" I dodged his question by pulling out a small box with a orange ribbon on it. He looked at the box then back at me. "What's that?" He said pointing to the box. "It's for you, open it" I smiled sliding the box across the island. "You didn't need t get me anything babe" He shook his head and refused to open it. "No seriously, I want you to have it" I propped my myself up onto a bar stool and watched him tear the box to pieces. He pulled out a silver chain bracelet. On each square link it had something engraved into it, the first link was the irish flag, the second link had 1D and the third link had my name engraved. Leaving the rest of the links blank. "I left those ones blank for whatever memories you want to put on them. I put my name on there so I'll always be with you, even when I'm not."

Niall held the bracelet up and clasped it onto his right arm. "You're unbelievable, I wish you loved yourself as much as I loved you Katy." He walked out of the kitchen leaving me wondering what he was up too. He walked back into the room with a huge black guitar case, it had gold plated ridges and had my name written in gold plating on the top. He carefully lifted it onto the Island and gave me a cheeky smile. "I was going to give this to you when you got better, but I've seen what condition your guitar is in right now and I thought this might be nicer to use. Go on, have a look" I couldn't hide my smile, Even though I didn't want anything from him; It was extremely sweet.

I unlatched the case and lifted it up cautiously. It was a acoustic Martin guitar with a pick-up and a cut-off. "Niall, this is a really expensive guitar. You really shouldn't have." Niall walked around the island to stand behind me. His warm hands held my arms as he kissed my neck and shoulders. "Don't you ever worry about money babe, that's never important.Theres something else in there I want you to have." Niall held my guitar as I brought the case closer to me. Peering into the case I spotted a small white ring box. My heart pounded, My hands shook as I reached to grab the box. I opened it to reveal a platinum gold ring with a massive diamond. I turned to look at niall but he was gone. "Niall?" where did you go?" The guitar was leaning against the counter and I could see dirt tracked into the living room. I followed the prints all the way out to his backyard. Come to think of it, I had never been in his backyard. I stepped out admiring his large sparkling pool surrounded by yellow and orange flowers. he had a wide football field and patio. 'Holy shit" I mumbled.

My heart literally dropped when I saw what he had done. A whole meal was placed on a table, from napkins to decor, It was brilliant. Niall stood at the edge of the patio, when he finally saw me standing there he knelt down onto his one knee.

"Katheryne Anne Taylor, will you marry me?"

I still held the ring in my hand, my heart was racing. I was unable to speak. Niall walked over and held my hands, I looked up at his baby blue eyes with my brown ones. "Y-yes, Yes I will marry you Niall." Niall's wide grin spread across his face. He gently retrieved the from my hand and slid it onto my finger. 

"I've waited all these years for my princess, and i've finally found her." He whispered before planting his lips onto mine.
