Cannonball (Sequel to So Close Yet So Far)

But love conquers all right?


3. ❥They Don't Know About Us

    The day was flying by and it was already 8pm. The boys were done with rehearsals and Niall was bringing home Chinese takeout for dinner. I got Annaleigh ready for bed and we sat together on the couch watching her favorite movie Repunzel. Soon enough the doorbell rang and Niall was there to greet me, "Let me help you," i offered. "That'd be great!" he said walking into the house and planting a kiss on my cheek. "How were my lovelies today?" he asked smiling.

"Pretty good. She missed you though." i whispered to him so Annaleigh couldn't hear. "Well I'm sorry i didn't know rehearsals was going to last for forever baby!" he whisper yelled. "Niall can we not right now," i said taking the food from the bag turning away from him. "Whatever.." he got his food and took it upstairs. "Where did daddy go?" Annaleigh asked.

 "He decided to eat upstairs tonight sweetie. You can see him before bed." i told her. Niall just didn't get it. He had been coming home with alcohol breath almost everyday after rehearsals and he thought i was stupid and wouldn't notice. He only cared about himself. I picked Annaleigh up and sat her in her highchair. Fixing her a plate of food i almost didn't notice i was crying. I felt a tear stroll down my cheek and i quickly wiped it away. "Here you go sweetie, mummy will be right back," i ran upstairs to talk to Niall. "Will you open the door please?" i twisted the handle but it was locked. 

  "Would you just please go away Sydney!?" he yelled through the door. "Your acting like a child! Open the damn door!" i yelled at him. Annaleigh started crying downstairs and i ran back down to get her. He followed behind me, "See what you did? Would you shut your mouth sometimes?" he yelled at me. Every word he said pierced my ears. I couldn't believe he was acting this way. "Shh baby its ok," i tried to calm her down. 

  "Niall whats wrong with you? Why were you lying to me, you went to the pub after rehearsals instead of coming home to your family!" i told him. "Yeah, so?" he shrugged it off like it was nothing. I was trying to keep my cool and just remember that he was drunk.. thats all. "The boys and i just went out for a couple of drinks.. your being such a bitch Sydney!" he spat at me. Tears started swelling up in my eyes and i ran upstairs with Annaleigh. I rocked her back and forth until she fell asleep and laid her down in her bed.

The next thing i remember was drifting off into a deep sleep without Niall by my side.


  The next morning, i woke up. Alone. Niall hadn't come upstairs and i was really worried about him. I looked over at the clock and it was only 7:30 am. I made my way to the kitchen to see if he was in there eating breakfast.  Nope. In the shower? Nope. Sleeping in the guest room? Nope. "Niall?" i cried desperately. I grabbed my phone and hit the first speed dial, "Ay, this is Niall!"  "Niall! Oh thank god i thought you wern't gonna answ-"  "Leave a message and i'll get back to ya!" his voicemail interrupted me. The line beeped, signaling i was now recording to his voicemail. "Um, hey Niall," i started. "I don't really know where you are.. but your starting to scare me and i just want you to come home." i was silent for a few seconds. "Call me when you get this." I looked around some more hoping he was hiding in the cupboards, waiting to pop out and scare me. Unfortunately, he wasn't.

  My eye caught an envelope on the counter, one that i've never seen before. I picked it up and my name was scrawled on the front of it in Nialls perfectly sloppy handwriting. I tore it open and pulled out a piece of paper that was folded inside.

Dear Sydney,

Good morning love. By the time you get this i'll be gone. Management told us we had to fly out to the U.S. today and now i terribly regret being drunk the night before. I'm going to miss your big smile every time i walk through the door and your stunning eyes. Annaleighs giggles when i tickle her to death and just loving you two day by day. Give her a kiss for me every night. You'll always be my beautiful princess. If you see wet spots.. those are my tears. I hate management just as much as i know you do right now. They want us to break up so badly, but they will never understand. Don't worry, i gave you and Annaleigh a kiss in your sleep. I never wanted to leave you this way but i don't have a choice in the matter. I really regret not eating dinner with you last night and everything i said to you. I don't even know how you still put up with me. I love you so terribly much and going on is just making my heart shatter into a million pieces. So i'm going to end this here. I am truly, madly, deeply in love with you. No matter how drunk i get, don't you ever forget that. 

~ Niall

My knees got weak and i collapsed to the floor. My vision got blurry. I sat there and cried. Thats all i could do. Nothing could ever fix the pain i felt right now. The one i loved the most was gone. And the worst part about it was i didn't even get to say good bye.


hope you all like it!
