Letting Go

Alex has been in love with Niall since they were twelve years old. Little does Alex know that he feels the same. Will they finally become a couple? Will Niall's upcoming fame tear them apart? Will this turn into a happy ending, or become and unforgettable tragedy?


1. Catching Up

The sound of birds chirping outside woke me up. I scrambled for my phone to check the time. 1:32 pm. "Shit" I mummble to myself. I was supposed to meet Niall at Kim's  at 1 pm. Our favorite diner in town. Niall just got off of tour, I haven' seen him in months, and I missed everything about him. I got up out of bed to be drawn back by my phone. I almost instantly knew it was Niall, and I was right. I picked up the phone.


"Alex, where are you? We had plans" I sensed the frustration in his tone.

"I'm so sorry Niall, I must've slept in. I'm on my way right now"

"Forget it, I'll just come over."

"Okay love you bye!" I laughed as I hung up the phone.  The butterflys started up in my stomach, the thought of seeing Niall made me blouh. I got out of bed and threw my hair up in a messy bun. I put on an old T-shirt and shorts. After brushing my teeth I strolled out of my room and down stairs. I sat on the couch and switched on the tv. I carelessy flipped threw the channels to find something interesting to watch. My channel surfing was interupted by a knock at the door. I jumped up knowing it was Niall. I rushed over to the door and opened it. "Niall!" I said as I embraced him in a tight hug.

"I haven't seen you in so long, you okay?"

"I'm good! I've missed you so much bestfriend." I whined as I let him in.

"I'vve missed my little Alex too" He said with a smile. His words gave me chills.

"Come sit, make yourself at home! Hungry?" I asked, although I alomost knew the answer.

"Not now, come sit next to me. I have something I wanna show you." He said from the couch. I was shocked he wasn't hungry, but I was even more curious about what he wanted to show me to care. I sat next to Niall on the couch, leaning my head on his shoulder. Me and Niall had this unexplainable relationship, but we decided not to talk about it.

"What did you want to show me?" I asked.

"This." Niall spoke pulling out a crumbled piece of paper.

"What is that?"

"I found it in all my stuff when I was packing for the tour. " He handed me the paper and I read. it. My cheeks turned bright red and I grew embarrassed. The note instantly brought back memories. When me and Niall were in the 4th grade he got himself a girlfriend, and I was devastatingly jealous. So I wrote him a note, to tell him how I felt.

"Dear Niall,

I don't want you to have any girlfriends because I have a crush on you.

xoxo Alex"

I laughed at how childish the letter was. "Why do you still have this Niall?" I laughed.

"Because it's cute" He said, giving me his adorable smile.

"Oh god." I laughed. He brought me in for a hug. Being in his arms after 8 months of not seeing eachother felt so amazing. We sat there and watched tv for a little bit. Me and Niall had this crazy crazy thing between us, it was confusing, crazy, but most importantly fun. I had no clue how I was going to deal with this.

"So what's new? We have to catch up" I said with a big smile.

"Not much, just the same old." He smiled.

"How are the boys?" I asked. I had met the boys plenty of times, and we were all really good friends.

"Insane, as usual." Niall joked. I laughed as his remark. The boys were indeed 'insane'. They were very witty and mischievous, but those boys could get me laughing in seconds.

"Oh, that's nice" I laughed.

"So Alex, do you still have that 'crush' on me?" Niall winked. My cheeks felt hot as they turned red.

"Niall, that was years ago!" I lied.

"Sure." He laughed.

"You know you're my bestfriend" I giggled wrapping my arms around his waist. 'And I couldn't ask for a better one.

It was true, Niall was the best friend anyone could ever have; And I loved him more than anything.
