But love conquers all right?


4. ❥Distance


"Can we listen to come music, Niall? Please?" I pulled against the seatbelt, positioning myself in the seat of Niall's car. I looked over at him as we drove down the road.

"Whats wrong with silence? I thought it was comfortable?"

"It is," i sighed, "But it's killing me!" Niall chuckled.

"Well, we don't want that, do we?" he said looking over at me for a brief moment, a cheeky grin stretched across his face. "Sure, babe. turn on some music." 

"Yay! Thank you!" i said leaning forward to turn his radio on. I switched to Radio 1, and turned the volume up. The familiar tune of Taylor Swift's "Ours" drifted through the speakers, causing me to smile.

Niall rolled the windows down halfway, the warm wind blowing my hair around slightly. I smiled at the passing scenery, and sang along with the radio.

'Elevators buttons and morning air. Stranger silence makes me wanna take the stairs..."

I felt Niall pick my hand up gently, using his right hand to drive. I looked over at him and smiled. He shifted his gaze to me quickly, smiling back.

'So don't you worry your pretty little mind, people throw rocks at things that shine..."

"This song reminds me a lot of our relationship," Niall said smiling, "Promise me something?" i asked.


"Promise me we'll be together forever." i smiled, but bit my lip.

"Forever is a long time. Sure you can handle me for that long?" he said with sarcasm.

"I'm positive, love."

"Then i promise we'll be together forever." he said, i held up my pinkie. He chuckled again.

"What are we in Kindergarten? Making pinkie promises?" he teased. I giggled, "I'm a kid at heart!"

"Seal the deal with a kiss?" he asked and i nodded, and then he kissed me.

If i have to spend forever with someone, i'm glad that someone was going to be Niall.<3

~Flashback over~

  "Sydney, Sydneyyyy?!" El was nudging me in my side. "OW!" i rubbed my side, "Wha- What?" i turned to her, "Your doing it again.." i rolled my eyes, "Doing what?" i got up from the kitchen table and plopped down onto the couch. "Daydreaming, you told me to bring you back to earth whenever you started doing it, remember?" i nodded. "We all miss the boys too you know." El said, "Yeah i know, but you guys got to say goodbye and hug, kiss, and snuggle with your boyfriend yesterday. And you guys didn't have a fight with him the night before." the feelings were coming back just thinking about it. 

 "Were sorry..." Perrie tried to cheer me up,"Here, we've got to get you out of this house!" she said. "Hmph, yeah, and go where? The boys are plastered all around London. Everywhere we go i'll see Niall." i frowned.

 "SYDNNEYY! SOMEONES SKYPE CALLING YOU!" Dani yelled from upstairs, i threw myself off the couch and ran upstairs with El and Perrie right behind me. "Who is it?" i asked frantically standing in the door frame. She took a look at the screen, "I think you should come take a look your self." she smiled and went back to twitter. I ran over and answered the call.

"N-niall?" for a minute i couldn't believe my eyes. "Sydney," he whispered. 

"I think we should give them some privacy," Perrie winked and guided the girls out of the room.

"Why?" was all i could process.

"I'm so sorry baby." i could see the hurt in his eyes.

"Can i see her?" i nodded, and ran into the other room and grabbed Annaleigh out of her bed, then joined Niall again.

"She's been sleeping, she misses you though. I can see it every time she wakes up and notices you aren't here." i was looking down at her and stroking her matted hair.

"I'm sorry i had to leave you that way. It was an all of a sudden thing." his eyes were puffy and i could see he'd been running his fingers through his hair.

"Niall you look dead tired. I don't want to keep you awake any longer."

"Sleep is the least of my worrys right now love." i bit my lip and we stared at each other for a moment.

"When are you guys coming home?" 

"Whenever we can. Management just decided on their own to book us to do some interviews here in the states. They knew we wern't going to agree to it, because we'd just gotten back home, so they told us last minute, and we were practically forced to come." I saw a tear fall from his eye.

"Niall.. you've been crying." i whispered.

"N-no i haven't." he quickly wiped away his tears.

"Babe, it's ok for you to cry too. I honestly don't blame you in this situation.." i shook my head.

He sniffled and ran his fingers through his hair once again, "Niall you really need some sleep."

"I know, but i can't help not seeing you Syd." he said.

"I'm coping with it though. I'm glad i have the girls here to occupy Annaleigh and I."

"I'm glad you have them too." 

We talked for a couple more hours until i started dozing off.

"Mhm," i listened to Niall talk.

"Babe, your falling asleep on me!" he said laughing at me.

"Don't laugh Niall, it's been a long day!" i giggled.

"You can go to sleep, i'll be right by your side when you wake up."

"You sure?" i asked him.


"Ok good morning, Niall. I love you."

"Good night Sydney i love you more." his soothing voice whispered, soon after i drifted off into a deep sleep.
