My One and Only

Cassidy Simmons is an average 19 year old girl. She attends university, gets by with a part time job and does a webcast about One Direction with her best friend, Tori to entertain themselves. When one direction starts getting interested in this show, they decide to pay them a surprise visit. That’s when Cassidy meets Niall and starts falling for him more than she ever has for anyone. But when Niall returns these feelings, things start getting complicated. Can they survive it or will everything they once shared crash and burn?


18. welcome back


One week later…


I’m up before my alarm goes off. I check my phone for the time and discover it is 8:00 a.m. on a Thursday. I start work at 10 today. Usually, I would have something to say about how I have to wake up early and I don’t even have school. But today I didn’t mind. Today Zayn, Liam, Louis, Harry and best of all, Niall, were coming home; back to England.

I was over- joyed. That’s all tori and I talked about yesterday. Each of us slipping it into our conversations at random times when it was so irrelevant. But neither us seemed to care. We were just happy that our boyfriends would be coming home the next day.

I jumped out my bed and into my shower, where I let warm water wash over body as I scrubbed myself with a light- scented body wash. After ten minutes had passed, I stepped out onto my purple bath mat and walked over to the sink where I began to brush my teeth.  When that process was done I walked back into my room and started to decide on what to wear today.

I settled on a pair of grey jeans and a black top that had a picture of a cheetah on it, outlined with gold glitter. I decided on curling my hair loosely. I applied black mascara and a light, subtle red lip gloss to my lips. It was a quarter to nine when I was done getting ready. I would probably leave the house around 9:40 a.m. since tori and I lived fifteen minutes away from Wal- Mart.

That left me with 55 minutes to do whatever I pleased. So, I decided to go downstairs to get breakfast. Taking my black leather boots out my closet and grabbing my phone off the charger before resting it my back pocket, I walked downstairs in the kitchen after resting my shoes at the front of the house.  I fried some turkey bacon for Tori and I and made some pancakes. I put tori’s on the counter covered up because she wasn’t up yet. She probably would be up until after I left.

 So I did what I always did when I had to work early: I left on a note on the fridge telling her that I went to work and what time I’ll be back and where I had left her breakfast. I ate my breakfast and watched some old cartoons that I use to watch when I was younger. When I checked the time again it was 9:35. I turned off the TV and walked back upstairs to my room to put my stuff in my black fringe tote that tori got me for my birthday.

After putting my phone, charger, lip gloss, hand cream, mascara, wallet, and keys in my bag I walked back downstairs, slipped on my black boots, grabbed my leather jacket off the coat hanger and walked outside to my car, locking the door to the house behind me. As soon the car started, I was greeted with the ending of The Ross and Moca Show on Kiss 92.5 before Royals by Lorde started playing.   

I parked my car at the back of the building before entering the staff room and clocking in. I left my bag in my car, only taking my phone with me. I was working the cash register today. Wasn’t one of my favourite things to do but it wasn’t that bad. I enjoyed seeing the looks on some people’s faces when they’d see a picture of the boys in a magazine next to the cash register and then glance at me, making the connection to Niall and I.

I ended my shift at 3:00. The boys’ plane came at 5:30. That gave me two hours to go home and rest before meeting them at the airport. Hopefully my shift would go by quickly because it would bring me *this* much closer to see Niall (not over video chat), for the first time in six months.


        NIALL POV


Nye: Are you done your shift?

Cass: yup just finished. I’m going to head home to rest and whatnot before I meet you guys at the airport :)

        Was it weird that I was counting down the hours until I could see her again? I couldn’t help it. I’ve been away from her for six months. I haven’t been able to kiss her, hug her, or feel her fingertips brush across my arm or chest. I missed that. I missed… her.

Nye: ok. I’ll see you then. Have a nice rest. :)

Cass: why are you so sweet?  Haha thanks I will. Have a nice flight :)

        I continued putting gathering stuff to put in my suitcase that I forgot to put in yesterday.  The only thing I left out was my phone which would be in my back pocket.  I zipped up my black suitcase when I was packing up my stuff. I plopped down on my bed and decided to go on Twitter. And after that, Instagram. The two sites I was on the most. I remember when Cassidy accused Harry and I of being obsessed with Twitter.

        “You guys tweet like every 30 minutes!” she laughed. Harry’s comeback was “Well, maybe you should turn off our tweet notifications, stalker.” I couldn’t help but burst out laughing at that because I knew Cassidy got notifications for our tweets. She didn’t say anything after that, she just hung up the phone leaving Harry and I laughing.

        Gosh, I couldn’t wait to see her. I wish we could just leave already. I’d be on the plane and one step closer to seeing Cassidy again. As if Liam had heard my thoughts, he came knocking on zayn and I’s hotel room door, saying that it was time to go. I quickly jumped off the bed and grabbed my suitcase and duffel before rushing out the room, making Liam chuckle.


The boys and I were now on the plane. We were one hour away from landing and I was getting anxious. I really needed to see Cassidy. I didn’t think it was healthy; the amount I missed her. I wonder if she missed me as much as I missed her. What if she didn’t? I needed to get these thoughts out of my head. Zayn was sleeping so I couldn’t talk to him. Liam was on the phone with Sophia, Louis was texting Eleanor and harry was playing some sort of game on his laptop.

So I decided to listen to music. I plugged my beats headphones into my phone and put it on shuffle. As the fifth song finish and the sixth began to play, Cassidy called me.  With a smile I answered the phone.

“Hey, Cass.”


“Is it true?”

She asked me, leaving me confused. I really hoped it wasn’t some stupid twitter rumor that was going to cause us to fight again. I really didn’t like fighting with Cassidy. Especially since she got so worked up. I heard it in her voice when we fought about that stupid “Nielle” rumor. She sounded like she was about to cry. I was guessing that was why she hung up the phone. I felt sorry for yelling at her and bring her to the brink of tears, but I was still mad. I felt like she didn’t trust me.

“Is what true?” I countered back. “That you guys won’t be home for another week.” Now I was really confused. Where on earth did she hear that from? “No. we’re on the plane right now. Where did you hear that from?” I heard her gasp. “That son a bitch.” I heard her mumble. “What happened?” I asked with a chuckle. I found it funny when Cassidy swore. I don’t why… it just sounded weird hearing it come out of her mouth.

“Louis was texting Eleanor and told her that your flight got delayed and that you guys wouldn’t be home for another week.” “Oh.” Was all I said. Oh, Louis. Always up to something.  “Tell him I’m going to kill him when I see him.” She told and I laughed while turning around in my seat to deliver the message to Louis who also laughed.  “It’s not funny! He made Eleanor cry.” I told Louis this who immediately stopped laughing and frowned. “She said she’s going to kill him too.” Cassidy said. I then heard tori say she was going to kill him also in the background.

I laughed. “Louis, how does it feel it piss off three girls to the point where they want to kill you in under ten minutes?” I asked him with a smirk. Louis rolled his eyes and flipped me off causing me to laugh again. Turned around in my seat and talked to Cassidy for 3 more minutes until she said she had to leave now to meet me at the airport.

We said our goodbyes, hung up and I continued listening to music until we landed.


        Finally the boys and I had landed. I was still a little sleepy from my nap but that went away quickly from all the noise from the airport. The boys and I were at baggage claim right now, collecting our things. I really wished perrie would be there to greet me at the airport. But unfortunately, she was still on the tour with Jade, Leigh- Anne and Jesy.  I missed her. But I was trying not to be all sad about it and I think I was doing a good job at it. I was trying to look at the bright side of things.

        At least I would get to see Eleanor, Cassidy and tori again. I missed them as well. I missed Cassidy the most because I was closest to her out of all of them. I missed Danielle too but I doubted she would be at the airport. Cassidy had said she was spending time with family during this whole “Sophiam” thing. I didn’t have a problem with Sophia but I didn’t like the fact that Liam left Danielle for her. He would always deny that he didn’t but we all knew the truth.  

        When I finished getting all my stuff, I couldn’t find the rest of the boys. So, I just started trying to spot Cassidy, Eleanor and Tori. I spotted Louis  and started walking towards him, hoping that we could find the girls together. But as I walked closer, I saw Louis standing with the girls who were taking turns hitting him. I found the sight quite amusing.

        “What did he do this time?” I said with a chuckle as I approached Louis, Eleanor, Cassidy and Tori. “Zaynster!” Cassidy said with a smile and pulled me into a hug. I hugged her back. “Hey, castor. I missed you. It’s been so long since we talked.” Cassidy laughed and pulled away from the hug before raising an eyebrow at me.

“We just talked last night, Zayn.”

        I blushed with embarrassment and mumbled “You know what I mean” as Cassidy laughed some more. I hugged tori and Eleanor as well. Harry and Liam managed to find us as well and Tori fell into an embrace with Harry. Cassidy and I fell into conversation but I could tell that only a part of her was listening to me. After a minute had passed Cassidy grinned and let out a high pitched squeal. “Niall!” she said happily before taking out off running. I turned around to see Niall grinning at her before she ran straight into his arms, wrapping her arms around his neck as he stroked her hair.

        “I missed you so much.” She mumbled before attaching her lips to his. People, and the few paparazzi that were here noticed and immediately started taking pictures as the boys and girls ‘awed’ and bystander busied themselves with hooting and hollering. But I just watched them intently. The way she greeted Niall was so different from the way she greeted me. I could tell she was happy to see me again. She hugged me and we engaged in a simple conversation. But when she caught sight of Niall, it was like I wasn’t even there.

        She was absolutely thrilled when she laid eyes on him. And as they stood there kissing, the smile was still evident on both of their faces. “I missed you too, Cass.” Niall said as they pulled away and kissed her forehead before wrapping her in another hug. The smiled was still on her face as she buried her head into head in the crook of his neck. They were so happy together. And for some reason, it hurt it see her so happy with him.

        But, that could just be me missing Perrie.


        It felt so good to be able to have him in my arms again, to be able to kiss him again. I didn’t care about the flashes of light that were hitting my face from the cameras that I knew people had out to capture this moment. I didn’t care that the boys and girls were awing in the background. All that I cared about was the fact that he was here.

        When Niall and I pulled he away he kissed my forehead and said “I missed you too, Cass” before pulling me into another hug. I buried my head in the crook oh his neck, taking in the scent of his cologne. I wanted to stay like this forever, in Niall’s arms. But I knew we’d have to break away at some point so we could go home.

        I brought myself to break away from him. I noticed the look of disappointment of his face from the lost contact. I smiled and intertwine our fingers, making him smile as well, before walking back over to the Liam, Louis, Zayn, Harry, Eleanor and Tori. We all walked out of the airport and were greeted by a loud crowd of fans.

Some were screaming, and some were close to tears. I can’t help but smile, thinking that would have been me if I wasn’t dating Niall and hadn’t already met the boys. Paul, and a few of the security guard from the airport were blocking them off so they weren’t able to reach the boys.

        We got to Eleanor and I’s car successfully without the any of the boys getting hurt.  We were now trying to figure out who should go with who. We decided that Tori, Harry, Niall and I would go together, and Liam, Zayn, Eleanor, and Louis would ride in her car. Before we went our separate ways we all agreed to hang out tomorrow. We weren’t sure what we were going to do but decided to figure it out tomorrow.

I let Tori drive so I could sit in the back with Niall and rest my head on his shoulder. I wouldn’t be able to do that if I was driving. So, tori and harry sat in the front and Niall and I sat in the back. The whole ride we all just caught up with each other. The whole time my hand never parted from Niall’s. Not that I was complaining, I loved it.


Tori had dropped niall and I at his house so Niall could unpack and rest. I was fine with that that meant I would get to cuddle with him and watch him sleep. Call me weird but I don’t care. When we got inside his house, niall rested his bags at the front door. My back was turned to him as I began to make my way to the living room. “Do you want to watch TV or…” I didn’t get to finish my sentence because Niall took me by surprise by grabbing my waist pulling me closer to him. I let out a squeal, causing Niall to chuckle.

“I missed being able to do this to you.” He stated as he intertwined our fingers again, making me smile. I felt his lips touch my neck, sending shivers through my body. “I missed it too.” I said as I faced him and kissed his cheek, causing him to pout. “I like it better when you kiss my lips.” He mumbled.

I giggled and placed my lips on his and wrapped one arm around his neck, keeping my other hand free to play in his hair. I was now against the wall with Niall’s hands on my waist, creeping up my shirt.




        I don’t think I was ever going to be able to tell her how much I missed her, for it could not be put into words. But I was hoping this kiss could show her. I couldn’t help but smile when her hand reached my hair. I loved when she played with my hair. She removed her hand from my neck and ran it down my chest stopping at my waist.

        When we pulled away, I just stared at her. Taking in her every move. Her beauty. Her long eyelashes that had black mascara on them, made her brown eyes look bigger. Her curled hair fell naturally framing her perfect face. Her pink lips were slightly part as she took in short breaths.

        She met my eyes and blushed before looking down and tucking a piece of hair behind her ear. Another thing I loved that she did; when she acted so insecure. It gave me an excuse to tell her how beautiful she was. I lifted her chin up with my finger so she was looking back into my eyes. I began to caress her cheek, causing her to smile. And her smile, made me smile.

        When she saw my intense stare wasn’t going anywhere, she raised an eyebrow up. “What’s that look for?” my cheeks turned a light shade of pink and I said, “What look?” I tried to make my stare less intense but it was no use. I couldn’t seem to take my eyes off her. “That one.” She giggled.

Another thing I found cute. “Your gaze is so… intense.” She added. I shrugged, a nervous smile on my face because I wasn’t ready to tell her what I was thinking. “I’m just happy to be with you is all.” A big smile stretched across her face. “Aww, Nye. I’m happy to be with you too.” with that said, she wrapped her arms around my neck and kissed my cheek before hugging me.

        I responded by wrapping my arms around her waist, tightening the hug. I felt more relaxed now, but my heart was still beating fast and hard against my ribcage. Because when I kissed her, held her in my arms, looked straight into her eyes, the only thing that crossed my mind were the words I love you.

        Yes, I love Cassidy. I love everything about her. I would say everything I loved about her but once I get started I would never be able to stop myself. I wanted to tell her how I felt but I was afraid of her reaction. Would she feel the same way? Would she think it was too soon? I didn’t know and I didn’t want to make a fool of myself. When I built up enough courage I would tell her.

        “Aren’t you going to bring them up so you can unpack them?” Cassidy asked me while pointing at my suitcases while I led her upstairs. I shrugged. “Nah, I’ll do it later. I’m tired. All I want to do is get into some comfortable sweatpants and sleep.” Just as I was about to my room door, Cassidy said “You do realize a good amount of your sweatpants are in your suitcase right?” I cursed under my breath as I realized she was right.

        Cassidy laughed as I walked back down the stairs to grab my suitcase. When I went back upstairs Cassidy was sitting on my bed. I sat beside her and began going through my suitcase for a pair of sweatpants for me to wear and a shirt for Cassidy.


        Niall pulled me into his arms as we lay down on his bed. His T- shirt was big on me, stopping just inches above my knee. I didn’t see the point in wearing pants so I took my jeans off. Granted, Niall was couldn’t tear his eyes off me for a while but he soon collected himself.

        I rested my head on his chest and he pulled the covers over us. I was tired, but didn’t want to go to sleep just yet. I wanted to stay up and talk to Niall. And that’s what happened. We just talked about everything and anything. From the tour, to school, to music, to TV shows. I made the mistake of letting a yawn escape my mouth. 

“You’re tired.”

        Niall confirmed. I lied by shaking my head and mumbling “No I’m not.”  “Yes you are.” I put an end to this back and forth argument before it could even develop by shrugging and saying,


“It doesn’t matter, I want to stay up with you.”


 “I’ll be here when you wake up, Cass. Just get some rest.”




It was hard to fight with him when he started caressing my cheek ever so softly, his attempt to sooth me to sleep. I sighed. “Fine. Wake me up in an hour.”  “Ummm.” He responded and kissed my forehead. The last thing I remember is Niall playing with my hair until I drifted off to sleep.
