Afraid of Falling - Niall Horan Fanfiction

'Just keep running' I kept telling myself, ' just keep running and don't look back'. As I ran, I thought about the events of the last hour and felt my eyes begin to fill with small droplets of water before I ended up on the floor.

When 16 year old Tegan hides from her fears, she runs. But what will she do when she experiences a feeling completely new to her, a feeling that she doesn't quite understand, a feeling that her past makes her afraid of...


12. Beaten by a girl

Not long after Tegan had left to change, Harry and Zayn both returned to their rooms to get dressed, but both returned in time to start playing Mario Kart, unlike Tegan who was still in her room. 

"Who's going first?" Lou asked us all. 

A chorus of 'me!' came from Liam, Zayn and Harry, all three of them diving for the controllers sitting in front of the TV. I propped my elbow up on the arm rest and leant my head against my hand, thinking about how I was going to talk to Tegan. How can a few seconds of your life ruin so much? Brown hair, 5' 3" and nerves of steel. That's how. I was distracted from my thoughts when I heard Tegan's voice from the doorway. 

"Hey! You started without me!" 

I turned my head to where the melodic sound came from behind us. I couldn't help but think how beautiful she was, how her long blonde hair flowed perfectly over her shoulders, how her bright blue eyes lit up her face; but sighed when I remembered what had to be done. 

"Ya snooze ya lose!" Louis cried, still focusing intently on the game. Tegan quickly sat in the empty space between Harry and Louis, clearly trying to avoid any form of contact with me.  

"Oh you just wait til I play against you!" Tegan laughed. 

Soon, Louis ans Harry were furiously attacking each others characters, fighting it out for first place, while Zayn was struggling to keep up with them. I didn't think Mario Kart was Zayn's strong point.  

"Fine Haz, you win!" Louis announced out of the blue, although you could tell he had some kind of game plan hidden up his sleeve. 

"But the race hasn't even finished yet?" Harry stopped steering his character and rested the contoller on his knees, looking at Lou with confusion plastered all over his face. Lou's cheesy grin began to grow bigger and bigger until he threw his flailing arms up in the air, 

"I WIN!" Lou screeched, Zayn crossing the finish line shortly after him. 

"Ha ha, second!" 

Lou patted Harry on the shoulder whilst beaming from cheek to cheek. 

"Never let your guard down mate!" 

Harry just sat there bewildered, pointing at the tv.  

"Close your mouth Harry before something flies in there!" Tegan laughed, pulling the controller from Harry's hands, "Yoink! My turn! Louis, Liam...prepare to lose!" 

"It's on like donkey kong!" Liam cheered, choosing his character, Donkey Kong. Louis chose Luigi and Tegan picked Toad.

The race began with Louis in first, Liam in second and Tegan following closely behind in third 

"Looks like I'm not going to be the one losing now, doesn't it?!" Louis commented, focusing on the last lap around the track. I noticed Tegan was still silent but had a smile playing on her lips, you could tell she was about to thrash Louis. With only half of the track left, Tegan picked up a sudden burst of energy and sped past Liam and Louis, leaving them dumbstruck; their expressions were classic. 

"Looks like I'm not going to be the one losing now, does it?" Tegan copied Louis words as she stood up and took an exaggerated bow. 

"Bu- But?" Louis stuttered. 

"Yes Lou?"  

"How-?" Louis just shook his head, still in shock 

"Who's next?!" Tegan questioned, still grinning. 

"Game on!" Said Zayn, taking hold of Lou's controller, Harry taking Liam's. 

Eventually, Tegan won most of the games, only losing one to Lou because he thought it would be funny to try and shove a banana in Tegan's face. 

"We are the champions...!" Tegan yelled as she ran around the living room. "Beaten by a girl Lou, how does it feel?" Tegan held the tv remote close to his face, imitating an interviewer, earning a glare from Lou. I couldn't help the little giggle that slipped past my lips.  

Louis glanced at me, giving me the evils although he knew, I knew, he was joking - if that makes sense? 

"I'll get you back, Harris." Lou smirked. I couldn't help myself as I doubled over laughing at both of them. Out the corner of my eye I noticed Tegan looking intently at me, her blue eyes full of hurt.
