A Valentines Nightmare

Esme is 17 years old. For being her age she has had a rough experience with love. Her heart has broken so many times and this year she has told herself that she is going to stay single for the whole year. But, her plans take an unexpected turn. There is a foreign exchange student called Niall. He, since the first day he came, reeked havoc on the hearts of the girls at school. When they get assigned as partners for a history project Esme gets a first hand look of what he does on a daily basis.


1. A Valentines Nightmare

"So the groupings for the project are Phoebe and Kassie, Gabby and Richard, Katie and Hank and Esme and Niall," my history teacher announced to the class. Crap. He is my partner. The boy hasn't even been here two months and he has already used five girls...that I know of. I saw him get up and come sit in the desk next to me. "Hey babe," he said. He winked at me with his gray blue eyes. "I'm not your babe," I said harshly. "Oh feisty," he said. I rolled my eyes than quickly looked down onto my paper with assignment written on it.
I read over my notes quickly. "Okay so we have to write a paper about some era, which one do you want to do?" I asked him. I waited a few seconds and he didn't answer. I looked over and saw that he was tapping away on his phone. "Niall this is not going to a one sided project," I said sternly. He chuckled and put his phone in his pocket. "Feisty," he said again. "Which era do you want to do," I asked again. "What are era's," he said. I facepalmed mentally. "Okay we will just do the Roman Empire," I said. He looked at me confused as I wrote it down on my paper. The bell rang and I quickly put my spiral in my bag and slung it over my shoulder. He stood up and put his book under his arm. "So, Esme, when do you want to work on this project thing," he asked. I turned and looked at him,"How about tonight." His jaw dropped when I said that. "What," I asked. "In case you haven't noticed, it's Valentines," he said. "And..." I said. He shook his head in disbelief. "Don't you have a date or something," he asked me. I shook my head laughing. "No," I said. His eyes grew wide. "I can't believe you don't have a date," he said. "Why is it so hard to believe," I asked. He didn't say anything. I shrugged off the silence and walked to the classroom door. I looked back and he was rubbing his neck. I took out a piece of paper from my bag and wrote my number down on it. I walked back over and handed it to him. When he noticed me he looked up and stared at my hand. "Just take it Niall," I said. He picked up his hand and grabbed the piece of paper. "How about after school," he said whisper like. "Yea that sounds good, actually do you have a last period," I said. He shook his head no. "Ok well meet me in the band hall last period, where are we going," I asked. "How does my place sound," he said. "Yea sounds good so I'll see you last period," I said. I walked out swiftly not wanting to be late to my next class. I walked in the door just as the tardy bell rang and walked to my seat. I took out my purple spiral for physics. We were going over electric currents again. He said if we understood it we could lay our heads down. I crossed my arms and laid my head down. I closed my eyes. As soon as I did I saw sparkling gray blue eyes. I knew instantly who they belonged to. I didn't want to open my eyes. I wanted to stare into those eyes for forever. No what am I thinking. He is just another guy who is going to break my heart if I give him the chance. I opened my eyes releasing myself from the image. I banged my head lightly on the desk. I can't be falling for him. There is no way. I lifted my head of the desk and listened a little more. The bell rang for last period and I went to the band hall. I set my bag on one of the green shelves that surround the perimeter. I walked over to my band locker and started unlocking the lock when I saw a tall figure leaning against the door frame. I turned and saw Niall. He had his car keys in his hand. I stopped messing with my lock and grabbed my bag. I turned and walked up to him. "You ready?" I asked. He shook his head yes and we walked out of the school. "Hold on," he said. I stopped walking and he took my bag in his hands. "Oh you don't have to do that," I said. He shushed me and we continued walking. I looked at his hands and imagined what his hands would feel like if they were wrapped around my own. No stop it. I can't think like that. The car ride was awkwardly silent. We got to his house and I looked in awe. He jumped out of the car and opened my door. I stepped onto the perfectly paved pavement and adjusted my clothing from the car ride. His phone started ringing and he didn't touch it. "Aren't you going to answer that," I asked. "It's no one important," he said. He opened the front door and led me to his room. He set my bag on the edge of his bed and he told me to sit in the computer chair. I sat down when his phone started ringing again. "Sorry I have to take it," he said. He walked out of the room. I was looking around his room. "What do you want," I heard through the door. My head snapped towards the door. "No," he said. I stood up and pressed my ear against the door. "She is different, I don't know how but I feel different with her, yes I already know about what she's been through, I highly doubt she will like me back, I probably seem like every other guy she has had in her life, but I'm not," he said. I put my hand over my mouth. I heard him end the conversation and I sprinted back to my seat. I rolled my chair over to my bag when the door opened. I grabbed my notebook and rolled back over to the computer desk and set it on top. I opened my mouth to say something but his lips came crashing onto mine. I wanted to push him away but at the same time I didn't. I raised my arms and pressed my hands against his chest. "Niall I can't not after what I've been through," I said. He turned rubbing the back of his neck the way he did earlier. "Niall, I like you...I'm just scared, my heart has been broken and repaired so many times and this last time I don't know if it can be fixed again," I said. "Everyone in my family has a rap sheet of breaking their loved ones hearts, I told myself I never wanted to be like them. I would never cheat on my girl I would never force her to do anything, I would treat her like a princess," he said. I started tearing up, all of my exes did those things to me. I turned in the chair and stood up. He walked over towards me. "I really want to kiss you again," he said. I looked up at him and smiled. "Well it is Valentines Day, how about a date," I suggested. He kissed my cheek. "Okay, I promise Esme, I will never hurt you, I know you are scared I am too, I don't want to hurt you," he said. "Say that again" I said. "I will ne-," he started. "No my name," I said.
