9. Better Off


I wake up to find its about nine o'clock. I go downstairs to see the boys are gone, except Harry.

"Where is everyone?" I ask looking around.

"They went back to Zayn's house." he says looking up to me.

"And why did you stay?" I say sitting on the couch.

"I didn't want you to be alone." He says smiling at me.

"Are they coming back?" I ask trying to get comfortable on the couch.

"I'm not sure, Niall looked like he just wanted to leave this house." I look down at the floor and Harry comes to sit next to me.

"I'm always going to be here for you." He says wrapping his arms around me. I felt a sudden rush of butterflies and for a second, everything felt right.

"Niall, told everyone you guys were over." I looked up at him quickly.

"Really?"
"Yeah, he didn't look too happy either." I quickly check twitter to see if he said anything about us. I read his last tweet from three hours ago.

"Saying goodbye can be hard, but sometimes its whats best for u,.." I was shocked. I looked through my mentions and see millions of tweets asking if me and him are over, and a couple being relieved we were over. In the moment I quickly tweet.

"For all of you guys out there asking if me and Niall are really broken up, the answer is yes" I press the home button and lock my phone. I look up to see Harry looking at me. His eyes looked so beautiful, and his lips irresistible.

"So it's official?" Harry asked. I looked down and cleared my throat.

"I guess.. If that's what he really wants." I hear phone ring and look down, it was Niall. I get up and run to my room.

"Hello?"


"Alex.. Do you really want this to be over?" I can tell he's been crying. I sighed.

"Of course not, I thought that's what you wanted." I can hear him begin to cry.

"I can't stop thinking about you, I love you so much." He says beginning to sob.

"Niall, don't cry. Please." I say trying not to cry, I've done enough of that recently.


"Why shouldn't I? My whole life has just been turned upside down in a matter of two days." Niall says in a miserable tone. I start to sniffle.

"I'm sorry." I hang up the phone And fall back on my bed. This is really it, me and Niall are really over.
A few minutes passed and I hear foot steps coming up the stairs. I see Harry walk into my room and lay next to me. He looks me in the eyes.

"Can I tell you something? He says sitting up. I sit up next him not even bothering to wipe my tears.

"What is it Harry?" I say.

"I love you." Harry says holding my hand. I stop for a second, I was shocked. Did Harry really just say that? Is this a dream? I give him a confused look. He looks me in the eyes, his eyes were mesmerizing. I couldn't help it, I loved him too and I couldn't even try to pretend I didn't.

"Harry, I love you too." His face lights up and he holds me tight.
This all felt so right, I felt happy for once. I yawned and looked over to the clock, it was nearly midnight. I got up and walked to my closet and quickly changed into pajamas and layed into bed. Harry took of his shirt and pants and layed next to me. He pulled me closer and our legs instantly intertwined. I looked up at him to find he was already looking at me. Harry leans his head down and kisses me. It felt too weird falling asleep with Harry instead of Niall, but I wasn't complaining.
The next morning I wake up alone in my bed. I can smell something cooking downstairs. I smiled and sat up looking out my window, it was nice and sunny. I heard footsteps coming up the stairs. I looked over at my door and saw Harry walking towards me with a tray full of food.

"Goodmorning beautiful" He says with a big smile.

"What's all this about?" I chuckle.

"I just thought I'd make you breakfast." he says setting the tray on my lap. I look down and see two blue berry waffles, two strips of bacon, and some orange juice.

"You made this all for me?" I say looking down at the food.

"Of course." He says kissing me on the forehead. I took a bit of my bacon and looked at Harry. He leaned down and bit the rest of my bacon. I laughed and looked at him.

"I'm an amazing cook." He says with his mouth full. I laugh and cut a piece of my waffle.

"Hurry up and eat, I have a lot planned for us today." I looked up at him with a mouth full of waffles, I quickly swallowed.

"Like what?"


"You'll have to wait and see." He says before jumping out of bed walking, downstairs.

"Get dressed!" He yells from the bottom of the stairs. I push the tray over to the side of me and get up. I walk over to my closet and scanned for something to wear. I wanted to impress Harry, so I reached for my short black dress. I struggled slipping it on, but my stomach was too big. I frowned and took it off. I put on a more comfortable floral dress, my stomach still showed. I sighed but just gave up. I slipped on some white flats and walked into the bathroom to do my make up. I applied some eyeliner and mascara, then finished up with some pink lipstick. I fixed my long, brown hair into curls. I looked into the mirror, I looked fat.
I walked downstairs about an hour later and spotted Harry sitting on the couch.

"Fina... Wow you look beautiful!" He says looking me up and down. I blushed and smiled walking towards him. I didn't feel so insecure anymore.

"Thank you." I say. He walks over to me and kisses me on the lips.

"You ready to go?" He says grabbing my hand.

"Where are we going?" I ask as we walk into the car. He helps me in and walks around and slips into the car.

"It's a secret" He smiles and pulls away. Minutes turned into hours and I began to wonder where we were going.

"Harry are you trying to kidnap me?" He laughs and turns a quick corner. I look to see a beautiful beach in front of me.

"Harry you took me to the beach?" I say looking around at the beautiful ocean.

"Surprise!" He says smiling at me.
He parked the car and got out. I got out of the car and looked out at the ocean. It was so beautiful. He opened the trunk and pulled out an ice chest and a picnic blanket. He leads me to a spot right next to the water. He layed the blanket down and pulled out sandwiches and chips from the ice chest. He poured me a glass of soda and handed it to me. I took it from his hands and smiled at him.

"Harry, you're amazing." I say looking at him. The sun began to set and it got colder. Harry got another blanket and wrapped it around us as we watched the sun set. Harry looked at me, his face looked so perfect in the low lighting.

"Alex, I wanted to ask you something." He says holding my hand.

"What?" I say smiling.

"Well I've been thinking, and I only want what's best for our son. Will you be mine?"

My mouth literally opened as I put my hand over it.

"Yes, of course I will Harry." I smiled. Harry kissed me and held me tight.

"You did all this just to ask me that?" I asked looking up at him.

"I wanted to make sure you'd say yes." He says looking down at me, a smirk displayed on his face. We started kissing again and then packed up our stuff.
When we got home it was about 8 o'clock. We walked through the door to see Liam and Niall watching tv. My heart sank as I looked at them.

"What're you guys doing here?" I asked letting go of Harry's hand.

"Louis and Zayn wanted alone time with their girlfriends so we decided to see what you guys were up to, where have you been?" Liam said looking at us.


"We uhm, were visiting my mom." Harry lied. I looked at Niall, why did he have to be here. I didn't want him to know so soon. I was stuck, I didn't know what to do so I just walked up to my bedroom, and Niall followed.

"Alex, we need to talk." He said shutting the door.

"About?" I asked sitting on my bed.

"I'm sorry for leaving you, I want you back." I sighed and looked at the floor.

"Niall, it's too late." Niall began to cry and say next to me.

"Why?" he asked looking at me. "Well.. I've been thinking. It wouldn't feel right being with you when I'm having Harry's baby." Niall lost it, began sobbing as hard as he could.

"It's all that babies fault! I could have gotten over the fact that you slept with Harry, but now there's a kid involved. Why did you do this to me Aelx? Why?" I began crying.

"Leave my son out of this Niall! He did nothing wrong. It's all my fault, but now that there is a child involved I have to do what's best for him." Niall looked at me, his cheeks were bright red and so were his eyes.

"And what's that?"


"Me and Harry are together now." I said looking at the ground. Niall stormed out the room, and I knew why. Not this again.

"Niall wait!" I yelled catching him before he got downstairs.

"There is enough drama as it is, don't make anything harder on Harry, he's just thinking about his baby. I'm sorry it has to end like this Niall." He cried and held me tight.

"I'll always love you." He said before walking out the door. Liam quickly followed him, and the house was in silence. I sat down on the top of the stairs and started crying. Harry picked me up and carried me to the bed,

"Just go to sleep babe, it'll all be better in the morning" He said laying next to me. He undressed and climbed into bed with me holding me as we fell asleep.
This is it, me and Niall were actually over and as heart breaking as it was it was better off this way.
