21. Chapter 21



"Well, I guess this is it, for a while. We will see you at Lou's place on New Year’s." Harry said giving Niall and hug. "Bye Harry" I gave him a hug, then said goodbye to Jazzie. I gave her a big hug, "see you later girl" I smiled. We waved for the last time as they headed to their airplane entrance. I watched as my best friend walked away with her boyfriend. It was crazy that someone I only met about a month ago, I trusted with Jazzes’ heart. I felt Niall's arm wrap around my shoulder, and I looked up into his blue eyes and thought about the same thing. I only personally known him for about four weeks, but he stole my heart. I looked away blushing realizing how long I had been staring at him. He took my hand and we walked to our plain that just started to board. I handed the lady my ticket and we went to our seats. We got ready for the seven hour flight ahead of us. "The last time I was on a plain was the day I met you" I turned and looked at Niall. "Yeah" Niall laughed, "what?" I asked. "You were so cute" he smiled. "You didn't want to wake me up, or ask for your iPod, and couldn't pay for your food" Niall went on and on about that day. I lifted the arm rest that separated us and lay on Niall's shoulder. "Are you nervous at all?" He whispered in my ear. I nodded slowly, "a little, I mean, I'm going to meet your family, that's kind of a big deal" I said and looked up at him. "We'll have a good time, no need to be nervous" he took my hand and held it in his lap. Not long into the flight, we fell asleep. 

"Wake up, were landing soon" Niall shook my shoulder. I sat up and looked out the window. The bright blue sky and white clouds floating by. "What time is it?" I asked Niall. He pulled out his pocket watch that I gave him for Christmas, "about 5:30." I nodded and pulled out my phone. I opened up the camera and snapped a quick picture. "Let’s keep the tradition going hmm?" I said remembering all the funny pictures we took on the plane. "We will be arriving in Mullingar Ireland in ten minutes. Please fasten your seat belts and thank you for flying with us" I heard of the loudspeaker. I put my phone away and slipped my shoes back on. I looked out the window at the lush green scenery, little towns and buildings slowing started coming into view. Niall smiled widened and he took a deep breath. "I missed home so much" he whispered. 


"Hi Katie, I'm Maura" I snapped out of my daze as she said my name. "Hi, nice to meet you" I shook her hand and we walked out of the airport, with our suitcases trailing behind us. Niall opened the car door for me and put the suitcases in the trunk. "So Katie darlin' where ya from?" She asked me and drove down the streets of Mullingar. "I'm from Pennsylvania, USA" I looked out the window. "How did you two meet?" She questioned. Niall looked at me and grabbed my hand. "Mum, Katie and I met on an airplane on the way to Madison Square Garden, remember?" Niall said. "Oh, right, silly me" she giggled. She glanced at us through her mirror, "well, it's good to have you here" she said and smiled. 



We pulled up to a small house with a perfect yard and flowers growing in the garden. "Welcome home Niall" Maura smiled and opened the front door. Niall grinned and ran and jumped onto the couch and motioned for me to come over to him. I walked over and he stood up and took my hand and ran to his room. "Look, this is my old room!" He said and showed me. "Niall, how long has it been since you've been home?" I sat down on the desk chair. He sighed, "six months." I gasped; the poor boy had been away for half a year and not been home once. "But it's ok, I'm home now!" He gave me a hug and we went to the kitchen where his mom was making dinner. "Niall while don't you show Katie the area while I make dinner" Maura said and handed him his jacket. "Good idea mum" he said and took my hand. "C'mon, but, you’re going to need a coat" niall said. He ran to his room and motioned for me to stay. "Maura, your son is perfect" I said and smiled at her. She blushed and winked at me. "Here you go my love" Niall said and helped me put on his zip-up jacket. He zippered it and kissed my forehead. "Let’s go" he took my hand, I looked back at his mom and she winked at me. We walked out the door hand in hand.



Niall and I spent the next few days sightseeing with his mom and brother Greg. He visited almost every restaurant and store. He was so happy, which made me smile. We were in his room talking about the New Year’s party at Lou's place. "We leave for Lou's Monday" I said looking at his phone. Today was Saturday. I lay down beside Niall and held his hand. "Watcha thinking" I said and rolled over and propped up on my shoulder to look at him. "How much I love you" he said and sat up. I rolled my eyes and sat up too. "No, I'm serious" he took my face in his hands. All it took was one look in his eyes and I was hooked on whatever he had to say. "You have no idea how much I care about you." he pulled me into his chest and wrapped his arms around me. I hugged him back. "You’re perfect" I whispered.


I woke up and realized I was back in the guest bedroom. Niall never woke me up to take me to my room. Even on the bus, hotels, and house, if I was asleep, he would carry me. I sat up and put my sweatshirt on and walked out into the kitchen to find Niall's mom making breakfast. "Good morning love, hungry?" She said all cheerful. "Yes, thanks" I said as she put a plate of food in front of me. "Niall and Greg went out, they should be back later this afternoon" she handed me a note that was pinned to the fridge. 


Greg and I went out for a bit, my mum is home. I don't know when I'll be back, call me if you want"

Love you,

You’re Nialler"


I set the note down and ate my breakfast. "So how old are you?" Maura asked me. "17, will be 18 in about month though" I said and cleaned my plate and put it in the sink. We talked for a little bit more about my life and she shared some of Niall's childhood stories. Later I went to my room and texted Niall.


Me- "hey, Watcha doing?"


Niall- "eating lunch :)"


Me- "I shld have known... ;)"


Niall- "ha...ha... We'll be home afterwards."


Me- "yay!" 


Niall- "talk to you later princess <3"


I set my phone down and opened up my suitcase, I figured I'd get dressed now, it was almost lunch. I slipped on my jeans and Niall's sweatshirt he gave me at Christmas, which I claimed. I stared at my reflection in the mirror. How did this ever happen to me? I fell in love with someone who actually for the first time, loves me back. I slipped on my sneakers and did my hair and makeup and went out to the living room to FaceTime Jazzie. Jazzie was in Cheshire now, she and Harry left Pennsylvania a day after Niall and me. 


"HEY! Long time no see!" She squealed when she saw my face on the screen. "I know, it's been so long! Like what, four days?" I laughed. Even though it hasn't been that long, it felt like forever. "How's Cheshire?" I asked. Her face lit up as she told me all about Harry's town. "And what's Niall's place like?" She said as Harry came and sat down beside her, eating a banana. I couldn't help but laugh, I thought back to all the inside jokes Jazzie and used to obsess over. "It's great, Maura is supper sweet, the town is so cute, and Niall is so happy here." I answered. Jazzie nodded and seemed to understand, she patted Harry's knee, "I know, I know, Harry here is very happy to be home." Harry finished eating and smiled with a mouth full of food. "I'm real excited to go to Lou's place tomorrow!" I said. Harry jumped up, "me too!" Then he ran away. "Well, I should go, nice talking to you my Bestie." Jazzie smiled and waved. "Bye" I said and hung up the call.
