18. Chapter 18



I walked down the stairs in my slippers and the feet of my pajama pants dragged on the floor. I went into the kitchen where my mom and Niall were preparing an elaborate Christmas lunch. It was about 12:30 and we would eat then open presents. I smiled and sat down at the island. I watched as my mom took a step back and niall took over, not only was he super talented at singing, but had skills in the kitchen as well. Once it was ready the five of us sat down and then we ate the fabulous meal. We were in no rush today and we took our time cleaning up and next were presents. It was about three thirty and we headed to the family room for presents. Sara opened up hers first, then my mom, dad, Niall, then me. Sara got lots of jewelry and a dress, my mom got a scarf and earrings, and dad got a box of new golf balls. Niall got a new guitar strap from my mom and dad, "cool, thanks" Niall said. "Okay, now let me give you yours" I said and handed him a box. He opened it and inside there was a pair of new high top sneakers, his last pair was taken the other week when they got mobbed. "YES! Thanks!" He said. "There’s more in there" I said pointing to the bottom of the box. "Gift card, to Nandos" I laughed. Niall said thank you and gave me a big hug. "Now your turn" Niall said and handed me an envelope. I opened it up and read it out loud, "Date, Tonight, Back yard?" I said and looked at Niall who just shrugged and winked. I shook my head and sighed. "Okay, when?" I said to him. He looked at his watch and it was 4:30pm. "An hour" he said and jumped up and ran to his room. I helped my mom clean up all the wrapping paper and boxes. "Let’s go for a walk dear" my mom said. I agreed and we put on our coats and went out the door. "Katie, I want to tell you that I’m proud of you, you have been handling this so well. You're father and I decided that it's okay if you stayed with them on tour." my mom said and squeezed my hand. I told her thank you and we got back to the house. "Go on upstairs, don’t want to be late for your date" she smiled. I ran to my room and on the bed there was Niall's sweatshirt with a note attached. "You like oversized sweatshirts" it read. I put it on and got my boots. I went downstairs and opened the back door. I was shocked, there were lights up everywhere and there was a little path through the snow over to the fire pit. There was a nice roaring fire going and the bench had a blanket on it. I looked around and went and sat down on the bench. Niall came out of the house caring his guitar. He sat down beside me and started playing. 


"Baby I want to know, what you think when your alone,


Is it me? Are you thinking of me?" 


I smiled and he locked his eyes on mine. 


"We've been friends now for a while, wanna know that when you smile, is it me? Are you thinking of me?" 


I nodded and he kept singing. He got to the chorus and I lost it, I slowly started to cry because I was so happy. 


"I wanna be last, yeah, baby let me be your, let me be your last, your last first kiss." 


The song ended and he put the guitar on the bench, played his iPod, and stood up and offered me his hand. I stood up and took it. He pulled me close to him, he took my hand and we swayed back and forth dancing to his song. Niall pulled away and cup my face in his hands. "Will you be my, my, Girlfriend?" I smiled and nodded and said "of course" and he wrapped his arms around me and we sat back down. I curled up beside him and we stared at the fire. I had no idea how late it was because we talked for hours. "I still can’t believe you did all this, like the midnight snack, the promise necklaces, the lights in the snow, this sweatshirt. You remembered everything!" I said and hugged him tighter. "I never loved anyone as much as you, so I wanted it to be perfect" he said. "You, you love me?" I said and looked right at him. Niall nodded and I smiled, "I love you too" I said and buried my face in his chest. "You know, I had a little help with the decorations" he said and pointed to the house. Jazzie and Harry came out smiling. I hopped up and ran and gave Jazzie a hug. "You helped with all this?" I said. "It was all niall's idea, but yeah, we helped." Harry said. I went back over to Niall who was practically gleaming with happiness. "Thank you, this is wonderful" I said. Niall smiled. We wrapped up outside then Jazzie, Harry, Niall and I went up to my room and we drank hot chocolate and watched The Last Song. We sat in front of my laptop and watched it. After the movie we drove Harry and Jazzie home.
