1. Moment

    I felt the sunlight hit my eyes. They fluttered open, squinting as I looked out the window. It was February 14 and for the first time, I was alone. I took a slow, deep breath, trying to hold back the tears I had fought so hard to stop last night. Niall was gone. It was all my fault. I shouldn't have said such harsh things, I was just so angry. I remembered the pain that flashed across his face before he walked out the door. It tore my heart out thinking about it.

    " I want you, Katie. That's all I want! Why can't you say the same?" Tears were falling down his face as he pleaded with me.

    "I don't know if you're what I want Niall, not if you're not with me forever! You can't keep dragging me back and forth between tours. It's giving me whiplash and I can't take anymore of it!" Our 3 year long relationship was gone because of me. Because I couldn't stand being away from him while he went on tour. It was all so selfish of me, forcing an impossible ultimatum on him. I sat up, running my fingers through my hair. I knew he hadn't come home, but the butterflies filled my stomach all the same, anticipating him walking through the bedroom door, that warm smile on his face, his eyes bright and loving. I smiled as I always do. He was everything to me and I tried every day to show him that. But my mistakes dominated every time. It was hard and we had put everything into this. But we had grown so strong from it all, I thought we'd at least get through this.

    My breath hitched in my throat and the tears began to well up. I blinked them out of my view, making them stream down my face as I walked to the bathroom. The cold water hit my face hard. It was exactly what I needed to pull together again. I dried my face and hands, opening the bedroom door. I froze, dropping the towel beside me.

    Tiger lily petals littered the ground, marking a path for me to follow. I picked up one of the flowers off of the side table in awe, closing my eyes as the sweet smell enveloped me. "My favorite," I whispered, a smile teasing my lips. I walked slowly down the hall, letting my bare feet gently brush the soft petals around me. I turned down the right, closing in on the balcony. I looked at the walls and giggled some, noticing what was stuck to them.

    Every note, text message, voicemail, picture we had ever given each other was taped all over the walls. Every "I love you", "I miss you", "You're perfect", "See you soon", and "Goodnight, love" was there, every precious memory, every time we shared together from the very beginning when we had met was there for me. For us. I smiled, laughed, cried, felt every memory as I passed them, happy tears slowly falling. As I reached the balcony doors, I stopped, taking a moment to close my eyes and imagine his face. My eyes shot open and I opened the double doors.

    Tiger lilies showered the stone, and more memories were spread around, but no one was there. I walked forward, delicately touching one of the flowers. Each memory here was in order. When we first met, our first date, our one year, two year, three year, our engagement..

    I stopped when I reached the middle. "Engagement?" I whispered. I turned around to find him there, looking at me with his blue eyes, down on one knee, a smile on his face.

    "Last night when we fought, I thought this beautiful part of my life would leave me forever. I knew I loved you," he stopped. "LOVE you with all of me and I would do everything in and above me to keep you by my side forever. I was scared that when I came back you wouldn't be here. I love you so much, Katie and I want to make you truly happy for the rest of your life, no matter what I have to do. I don't ever want to hurt you again and I swear to you that as long as we're together you won't ever get hurt again." I realized I was crying when he took my left hand in his, carefully pushing the ring on. "Will you please make me the happiest man in the world and give me the honor of being your husband?"

    I smiled through the tears, nodding my head. "Niall I just want you." In that moment, I knew. As long as I had him with me, I would never need anything else. I finally knew what I wanted and I was ready to spend my forever with him.
