Stole My Heart

Leah's dreams were coming true. She's made it onto the X-Factor, and she was going places. The last thing she imagined would happen was that Niall Horan from One Direction would ask her out. Suddenly, her life is turned upside down as love, heartbreak, ex-boyfriends, distance, and complications stress their relationship to the max. Can they overcome everything?



6. Returning Past

I quickly typed in a response

Leah: Don’t you dare show up here. I’m happy and you are NOT messing this up for me.

Less than two minutes later there was a reply.

James: What makes you think I’m going to listen?

“Ughhhh.” I groaned, exasperated and slumped down into my seat.

Niall looked over at me confused. “What’s wrong, babe?” He asked.

“My ex isn’t leaving me alone and now he wants to try and come down here because I wasn’t talking to him..” I mumbled, rubbing my face with the palms of my hands.

Niall looked over at me and raised his eyebrows. “Oh, really? I can take care of this really quick.” And he snatched my phone off of my lap and started making a call.

“Niall, what are you doing?” I asked, confused.

He just held up a finger as the call connected. “Hey, buddy. James, right? Leave Leah alone, she’s done and she’s moved on.” He said, and paused. “Who am I? I’m Niall, Leah’s boyfriend, who the fuck do you think you are? Contacting her all of a sudden and making her feel like shit? No, I don’t think so. Now leave her alone.” and he hung up my phone. “See? Problem solved.”

I groaned louder. “Niall, he’s so thick headed. He’ll probably keep calling or worse; he’ll show up here. Merp.” I said, throwing my head back on the seat.

“Well if he shows up here, I’ll take care of it, okay babe? I’ve got this.” He said, and pulled me over and kissed my forehead. And I believed him completely. We drove back to my place with the radio playing quietly and humming softly. All too soon, we got back to my place.

I really didn’t want Niall to leave, and he didn’t want to go, either. He looked from me to the door and back to me. “Do you want to just stay the night..?” I asked, and he smiled at me.

“You know, that sounds fantastic.” He said and climbed out of the car, and was over to my door before I’d even gotten my seat belt off. He opened my door for me and we walked up to the house slowly. I unlocked the door and took his hand and led him in. We dropped our shoes and coats inside the door and just looked at each other. Then, Niall took two steps towards me, closing the distance between us, and he took my face in his hands.

“You are so beautiful, you know that?” He said, staring intently into my eyes. I took a deep breath, and slowly leaned up onto my toes, about to kiss him, when he pushed forward and sealed our lips. My arms snaked up around his neck, my fingers playing with his hair at the beck of his neck. His arms wrapped around my waist, and I bowed backwards as the kiss deepened and my lips opened up to him, his tongue slipping in and wrestling with mine. I moved my hands down to his biceps and pulled away slowly. He just looked at me for a few moments before I took his hand and took him upstairs with me. I led him into my room and closed the door behind me.

“I’m actually really tired, so..” I said, trailing off and looking at the floor.

Niall chuckled and walked over to me, turning my face up and kissing me on the cheek, then he slipped into my bathroom adjoining the bedroom. I took advantage of the time and grabbed a pair of PJ pants and a tank top, and quickly changing. I heard the bathroom door open as I was combing through my hair with my fingers and I turned around to see Niall walking out of the bathroom in just his boxers. I turned around on the bed and pulled my knees up to my chest. Niall sat on the opposite corner and we just sat there for a while before I started nodding off. Niall laughed as he reached up and pulled the covers of the bed down, and we both climbed in. Niall’s arm slipped around my waist and pulled me tight against him. I reached up and turned the lamp off and quickly drifted off to sleep.


I woke up, stretched, and quickly realized the bed was empty next to me. I sat up quickly and looked around. There wasn’t any sign on Niall. I jumped up and pulled my hair into a messy bun, and headed down stairs to see if he was still here. I got to the op of the stairs when I smelled bacon and I smiled to myself. I walked down the stairs and into the kitchen to see Niall making bacon and eggs, still shirtless. He didn’t hear me coming, so I walked up behind him and slipped my arms around his waist, kissing his shoulder blade. He shivered in response and unwrapped me from him, turning around and kissing me on the head.

“Unless you want me to burn this, I wouldn’t advise doing that.” He said, making me blush.

There was a knock at the front door, making me jump. I walked over and unbolted it, not bothering to look and see who it was. When I opened the door, I froze.

Standing there was James.
