Maeve had dozed off on the chair that Niall had been sitting on before, and I lay with my head rolled back onto my pillows. I lifted my hands up to my hair and brushed the flyaways back. Beside me on the floor, a insomniatic Niall sits on the floor, strumming away on his wooden guitar. It had a green strap, which hung around his neck casually. Niall catches me staring at him, and I flinch as he gets up and extends his arms towards me. 

I notice his strong arms. He has large bicep muscles.

"Good morning, beautiful." Niall greets me, examining my tired and sleepless face. He reaches up and strokes my hair and pins it behind my ear. He plants a sneaky, light kiss below my ear, on my neck. My heart fluttered.

He hears me giggle quietly and notes that I'm being playful today. "I see you are feeling better."

"So much better," I reply. "I think I might be ready to go home, soon."

Niall instantly falls into silence, as pain fills his eyes. He stares at me fatefully.

"I love you." he says, catching me off guard. We stay there for a while, gazing at each other intently. "You take my breath away," he finally continues. "When I look into your eyes, it makes me want a better future, a better life. I don't know why, you just have this effect on me. I feel you in my heart, see you in my head. I want to always see you smile and hear you laugh. And..."

I reach towards him and my fingertips touch his jaw-line and pull his face towards mine. He falls silent again as our noses touch, and our lips graze. Finally, our lips meet.

Niall's large hands cover mine as a warm and romantic gesture. When our lips part, he looks at me with his kind blue eyes, which sparkled like the sea after the storm, rainbow resting overhead. He leaned in again and his eyebrows curled into a frown when I turned away.

"Alanna," he whimpered.

I shook my head, unable to speak. Niall stood beside me, motionless, with painful humming in his throat.
