The Blonde Boy

Niall Horan has just moved to Seattle and is utterly lost in this new world. His mum and dad fight constantly, his sister has an abusive boyfriend, and he can't escape the madness going on in his new home. That is, until he meets Peyton.

Peyton LaCosta has lived in Seattle her whole life. She seems to have everything in life she's ever wanted- amazing friends, loving parents, and not to mention a great home life. Yet even with everything she has, she feels completely lonely. That is, until she meets Niall.


10. Strange Introductions


"Who the hell are you?!" she shouted as I practically fell out of the bed. Peyton hadn't told me that her mother often slept in the guestroom. 

"Uh, I-I'm..." I start to mutter, but she doesn't care who I am. All she knows is that I'm a teenage boy she's never seen before and I'm in her house, sitting in her bed.

"Either you get out now or I'm calling the police! No, scratch that, I'm calling them anyway." She runs out of the room to find a phone only to bump into her daughter on the way out. 

"That's Niall, Mom." I hear Peyton's familiar voice ring through the room. She yawns as her mother frantically turns to look at me again. 

"Niall? Who is he and why is he in my bed?" She shouts tiredly, starting to lose her loudness. 

"Well this wouldn't have been a problem if you'd slept in your own bed! Why were you in the guest room anyway? He's just a friend in need of a place to stay Mom, he's not going to hurt anyone. Niall wouldn't hurt a fly." She laughs at her mother's horrible bedhead and smooths it out with her fingers. Now her mother looks more calm, knowing who I am probably had something to do with it. 

"I guess I was too tired to notice I was in the wrong room," she yawns, "and I guess he can stay here, not like we ever use that room anyway." Peyton hugs her tight and thanks her graciously. 

"Thank you so much  Mrs. LaCosta, really I couldn't thank you enough. If you ever need anything, just tell me and I'll do it." I smile and she does the same. 

"No problem, Niall? And really, call me Linda." I nod and look in Peyton's direction. "Well, you two go back to bed now, I'll see you in the morning." she looks back one more time with a suspicious eye and then walks into her room. I just gape at Peyton, she's even beautiful in the middle of the night. 

"Well, good night Pey," I say, walking towards the bed. She starts to leave the room but then stops in her tracks. 

"Hey, Niall?" she asks.


"Thanks for tonight. You know, taking me on a date. It was fun, I really enjoyed spending time with you." Then she walks over to my bedside and plants a kiss on my cheek. Warmth spreads through my body as I take in the strawberry scent of her long hair. She blushes and walks out, as I remain speechless. 

I could already tell staying here was going to be great.
