Holding On

Rose, the word ponders around my crammed mind and all it ever picks out is the color red. Red, the color of love, anger, blood. My name is inexplainable. My life, was inexplainable, until I met him.


23. What Did you Say?

The whole car ride I watched Niall closely. His head hung low and he fiddled with his fingers.

"Niall?" I asked, everyone looking up at me except Louis, who was passed out.

"Yea?" He looked into my eyes, pain swelled in his.

"Can we talk when we get home?" Niall just nodded slowly and went back to inspecting his fingers.

"Roseeee just fuckkkk me alreadddyyyy!" Louis yelled. Everyone looked at him surprised.

He was having a wet dream...wait...about me?!

My cheeks brightened as I looked away embarrassed.

"Hey Rose, looks like Louis has the hots for you, literally!" Zayn teased. The car was engulfed in laughs and howls.

"Ugh seriously Zayn? I didn't want the image." I lied.


I woke up early, and hear noises coming from the room next to me. I snatched my mustache sweatshirt, and threw it on over my tank top I slept in.

"Niall?" I knocked on his door hesitantly.

"Come in..." I pushed open the door slowly and saw Niall laying on his bed watching a movie on his laptop.

"Sleep well?" I smiled at him, closing the squeaky door behind me. He just shrugged.

"Actually, I didn't sleep at all." I frowned remembering last night. There's definitely something bothering him. 

"What are you watching?" I asked, laying next to him.

"Avengers." I smiled, that was one of my favorite movies.

"So, what did you want to talk to me about?" He asked, his eyes still pinned to the screen. We were at the scene where Hulk was flailing Loki around back and forth.

"Um, well. Just what's wrong? You seem upset. Anything you want to talk about?" I questioned, my fingers making shapes on his arm.

He didn't respond and kept watching his movie intently. The movie was coming to a close when he started to talk.

"Do you love Louis?" He blurted out. My eyes widened. I have feelings for Louis...but I don't think I love him.

"No Niall...I like Louis but as a friend. If you're talking about what happened last night, it was nothing okay? He was drunk."

"But you kissed him back." Niall's voice was shaky and quiet. "I saw you."

"Niall we were drunk! I'm just close with Louis because I'm grateful he found me!" I snapped at him.

There was a long silence and by now Niall didn't even care about the movie. He just stared at his ceiling, a blank expression pouring onto his face.

Suddenly, he sat up and looked me straight in the eyes.

"Rose?" I nodded at him, slightly confused.

"I think I'm in love with you." My heart stopped.
