Then He was there

she had changed so much over eight years, since he moved. Katie used to be best friends with Niall Horan when they were ten until he moved. Then he was just there one day. I guess he moved back, and this time he wants something more.


2. together again

The school day is over and I drive home. It’s just starting to rain and I put my windshield wipers on. As I get home, I change into yoga pants and a t-shirt. I take my contacts out and wear my glasses. I got contacts after Niall left, to improve my look. I start doing my homework when the doorbell rings. I open the door and see Niall standing there soaking wet.

"Katie..." I can see the pain. I walk out onto my front porch and shut the door.

"Yeah... Niall, look I have some homework to do." I start to walk into the house when he grabs my wrist and crashes his lips against mine.

This was way better than the kiss when we were ten.

"Do you wanna come in?" I ask him

"Not yet. It's raining and remember how you told me that you always wanted to kiss someone in the rain? Why not now with me?"

I close the door and grab his face and we start kissing him. Passionately lovingly. I grab his hair and shirt.

I wake up in a cold sweat and smile.... It was just a dream. Niall never came to see me. He doesn't even know that I still live here. I go to make my favorite snack, pizza rolls. Niall and I used to split these in half all the time. I wanted to tell him that I was his old best friend but something stopped me. I had changed so much since he moved


I felt that if I told him he wouldn't want to be friends again. Or maybe I'm just scared of how he makes me feel. Tomorrow is Saturday and I'm so glad. It's almost 2:30 am so I decide to go to bed. I wake up at 8 and go for a run. I put my hair up into a high pony and get on some yoga pants and a T-shirt and go on a run. I run for a long time to take off some steam and I decide to go into the meadow where Niall and I first met. I go to our clearing and sit and just listen to music. Daydreaming about him. Someone interrupts me in our clearing. I hear loud rustling noises and prepare to run. When I see Niall's beautiful face.

"I thought I might find you here." He says soothingly

"We'll you found me alright Niall. I have t seen you in eight years and all I get us a blank stare and a hello??"

"But this isn't the first time you've seen me!!" I can tell that he's angry with me

"Okay look the only reason I didn't say that I was your old best friend was because I was afraid that you would reject me and say I don't know you or something!"

"What more do you want from me Katie? A welcome kiss like the one you gave me the day I moved?? No! You are being so selfish!!"

"I'm not being selfish I just don't want to get hurt!!"

"We'll who could ever want to hurt you?"

"A few years after you left I went to a senior party with my boyfriend and I got drunk and he raped me there asshole! You have missed so much in my life Niall!!! You have no idea who I am anymore!!"

"You're right about that... U sure as hell don't know you anymore!! But I would like to start right where we left off. And can you remind me where that was?"" That smile makes me go weak a t the knees, and I cannot refuse him. But I have to. The way he makes me feel..... It should be illegal. The butterflies in my stomach right now are going insane. And he slowly walks towards me and briefly places a peck on my neck.

"I want to show you something. Meet me back here tonight, we won't do anything I just want to get to know you again." I look at him reluctantly 
"What time?"
"AHHH umm around eight would be PERFECT."
"Okay should I bring anything?"
"A blanket and a pillow!"
"Oh so it's a sleep over!"  
"Yes just like old times you know except we will have clothes on."
"Okay Niall I'm kinda wondering what we are doing but ill be here." I give him a hug and walk out of the meadow. After he is out of sight I run home. And prepare to meet him. It's like 6:30 and I need to bring things with me.... Okay, I need a sleeping bag, a pillow mabey a few, cuz if I know Niall and I do, he will definitely have something planned. I take a quick shower since I'm all sweaty from my run. I blow out my hair and spray it with a sea salt blend to make my hair have beach waves. I bring a brush since he always liked to play with my hair, I grab a lantern so that we can see what we are doing, I also grab some neutella and two spoons. I put all of the things into my bag which is rather heavy. I put on a pair of sweatpants and a t-shirt and then my padagonaia, and uggs. I can't wait to see him. It's around 7:45 and I decide to start to walk over there. It takes fifteen minutes to walk there. I turn in the lantern and trudge down the road. I take some shortcuts and it cuts the trip in half. I call Niall to tell him I'm here. Ring ring ring..... Why isn't he picking up? I leave a message.
"Hey Niall it's me I was just wondering where ru? I'm here and I do t see you! And it's almost eight. Call me back" I see headlights and I wonder what it is. The driver honks the horn and its the Irish national anthem. Niall. He parks it and I run up to the side of the truck. 
"What is this for?" I ask
"We can sleep in the bed of the truck that's why I asked you to bring blankets an pillows."
"That's so cool I love that idea and I brought a lantern so we can see. And I got some extra pillows, and I got our favorite: neutella!"
"Ohhh now you hit my weak spot!" He laughs and lunges towards my stomach.
"AHHH Niall stop tickling me!"
"Never! You got my weak spot now I have yours!"
"Nutella doesn't make you pee though!! Stop it!! My sides hurt!!"
"What's the magic word?" I sigh, we played this game as kids.
"Niall is the Awesomest best friend ever and please?"
"Correct!" He finally releases me and undoes the opening to the bed of the truck. 
"Time to go to work!" He says to me and I hand him supplies that both he and I brought. We set up the blankets so that we have a somewhat of a cushion to sleep on, and then lay the sleeping bags over top. The pillows which we have many of, are put along the divider separating the bed and the driver and passenger seats. I out the lantern on top of the place where the wheel is and turn it on.
"Finally done!" I sigh with relief.
"We'll now that we're done.... What do you want to do?Niall raises his eyes brows cheekily and jumps into the bed that we have just made and pats the spot next to him. 
"I thought we could look at the stars since its so clear tonight." He stands up to help me into the truck. I reach my hands  up to his. I can feel the warmth of his skin pressing against mine. He pulls me into the truck with one swift stroke and I decide to put a little music on since its to quiet for my liking. I lay down and look at the stars and Niall lays down with me. His hand is behind his head and I long for him to put it around me. Just to be able to feel his touch once again,

Hold me close and hold me fast
The magic spell you cast
This is la vie en rose

He reaches his down to mine
"Would you like to dance?"

When you kiss me, heaven sighs
And though I close my eyes
I see la vie en rose

When you press me to your heart
I'm in a world apart
A world where roses bloom

I put my head against his chest and can hear the steady beat of his heart beating as fast as mine. Boom boom, boom boom. 

And when you speak, angels sing from above
Everyday words seem to turn
Into love songs

I start to sing the last verse of the song, not knowing that I am singing it to him. 

Give your heart and soul to me
And life will always be
La vie en rose

The song ends and he and I separate. our bodies a few inches from each other which seems world away. I sit down and Niall jumps out of the bed of the truck and opens the passenger seat of the car and pulls out a guitar. I easily recognize it. It was the guitar that I tried to play before we kissed for the first time.
