1. The Path


I shuffled nervously in my seat as the pilot announced we were landing momentarily. I was twiddling my fingers as I thought about what I would say at the gates. My boyfriend and I have had a rocky past couple of months. He has been busy with his fame and I have been busy with college here in the U.S., and lately thoughts have crossed my mind if we had reached the end.

Even though we are having troubles, Niall has managed to clear his schedule for Valentine’s Day. In hopes of rekindling our relationship I took the next flight to Ireland without haste. All Niall would tell me is that he was going to make up for lost time.

I braced myself as the plane’s wheels kissed the ground, by grabbing the arm of my seat. I took deep breaths as the plane shook. Another reason Niall and I didn’t see each other much is I had a horrible fear of planes. I bit my lips and let my shoulders relax after the plane halted.

As soon as we were allowed to leave I grabbed my suitcase and squeezed my way through the line of people in attempts of getting off of this death trap. I exited the gate and looked around searching for Niall. I gave a small smile as I saw the handsome, blonde man standing there with a bouquet of flowers. I dropped my suitcase and ran over to him.

I wrapped my arms around his neck; with flowers still in his hand his strong arms cradled me. I leaned back and gave a smile as I looked into his lovely blue eyes.

“Happy Valentine’s Day, Jessa.” He gave a shiny grin.

“Happy Valentine’s Day!” I gave a small smirk as I took the flowers from his hand.

“I made sure to get your favorite, a dozen white roses for my princess.” He smiled.

“Aw thank you” I smiled as I took a deep breath of the flowers. I loved that smell.

“So, what are we doing on the special day?” I grinned. I felt my heart beat fast like it always did when I saw him.

“I planned a romantic dinner at a place special to me.” Niall smiled as he retrieved my suitcase.

“Wonderful, what time?” I shrugged. It was already 1p.m. the day was half over.

“In about an hour.” He smiled, “you can change in the car if you like?”

I rolled my eyes as Niall grabbed my hand. We left the airport and started to head to “Niall’s surprise place”. I hopped into the back seat and changed into a dressy top, jeans, and some black flats. I really hoped he wouldn’t take me somewhere to fancy, because I was not dressed for the part. But then again Niall was only wearing a graphic t-shirt, jeans, and some white sneakers, so it couldn’t be to fancy.

As we drove to the place, Niall and I reminisced on the memories of us, from our first date two years ago, to when I was punched in the face by a fan. Niall told me about all the things he has done in the past four months, and as he spoke I was lost in goofy grin and blue eyes. I really did love him, and I know I would be crushed if I ever lost him. We laughed till we cried as Niall told me about the prank he had pulled on Harry last week. That was another thing I loved about Niall, his laugh. His laugh would instantly turn your worst day into the best one.

We finally arrived as Niall put the car in park. He ran to my door so he could open it for me, in response I just blushed and kissed his cheek. I looked at my surroundings and saw lush forest with a small stone path. I gave Niall an unsure smile, but followed him as he led me down the path.

Niall grabbed my hand as he took a deep breath, “Jessa, I’m really sorry I haven’t been able to see you. I understand how much that hurt you, but I thought about you every single day.” He gave me sad eyes waiting for my answer. I tried to be distant, but I couldn’t with him looking at me like that…

“Niall, I know you’re busy and part of it was my fault, let’s just spend this time together making up for it.” I smiled.

Niall gave a half smile as he nodded. We continued our walk and had small talk until my ears homed in on the sound of a rippling brook.

Niall stopped in his tracks and smiled, “Can I carry you like I always did?”

I let out a giggle as I nodded. Niall would always give me piggy back rides wherever we went. I hopped on his back and he gently held onto my legs. I wrapped my arms around his neck and he walked towards the brook.

I closed my eyes as my senses focused on everything around me. I heard the sounds of birds singing in the trees, the sound of leaves crunching with every step Niall took, and I noticed the smell of cologne he was wearing. It was the same cologne he wore on our first date.

“We’re here love.” He whispered.

I opened my eyes and gasped in awe. There in front of me was a beautiful stream with flowers spreading across the bank, and I couldn’t help but crack a sweet smile when I saw a picnic blanket spread on the ground with a picnic basket resting in the middle of it.

“Oh, Niall” I smiled as I looked at him. He just grabbed my hand as we trotted over to the picnic. We both plopped down on the blanket. Niall rubbed his hands together as he licked his lips.

“Lets eat!”

He pulled out two peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, juice boxes, and a wrapped box.

“What’s in the box?” I grinned with curiosity.

“You can find out after we eat.” Niall smiled as he took a bite of his sandwich.

I nodded as I poked the straw in my juice box. We started to get lost in our conversations. After we were done eating Niall grasped my hand and gently kissed it.

“Want to open your present now?” He whispered.

“I’d love too!” I said as I picked up the box.

It had shiny blue wrapping and I didn’t hesitate to rip it off. I huffed when the box revealed a smaller box. Niall let out a small chuckle as he saw my annoyed expression. I continued and after ripping of the wrapping on the smaller box in revealed a folded piece of paper. I was kind of disappointed by the present, but didn’t let it show.

“Read it out loud.” Niall smiled.

I unfolded the paper to reveal a short poem, it read:

To my dear Jessa, through all the things we have been through,

My mind as never left the thought of you.

Even though we skyped every night,

I wanted to see you so badly, in real life.

So on this Valentine’s Day I brought you here to say,

Will you  be my wife, and be with me for forever and a day.

My voice shook in happiness as I read the poem. Tears began to flood from my eyes; I looked back at Niall and put my hand over my mouth in surprise. There he was perched on one knee holding a black little box.

“Jessa, will you please marry me?” He smiled as he opened the box to reveal a beautiful diamond ring.

I shook my head widely up and down, because I was lost for words. I pounced on Niall, and we both fell to the ground. I smiled as I was lying on top of him.

“I love you Niall!” I laughed as tears still ran down my face.

“I love you too Mrs. Horan.” He gave a cheesy smile as he brushed is hand on my face, wiping away my tears.

As we laid there my head resting on his chest, I smiled and whispered in his ear, “This has been the best Valentine’s Day ever…”
