Starring One Direction

You've heard the story-girl meets boy, girl meets another boy, girl meets a third boy and has to choose between them, meanwhile dancing backup for their tour and having to deal with blackmailing manipulative psychos.
Okay, so maybe this isn't your typical story.
Emily is back, finally settled into her new life as Niall Horan's girlfriend.
She has it all: the guy she knows she loves, the best friend she can't live without, and a new movie on its way as she pursues her acting career.
But when Emily is confronted by her past, things get turned upside down.
Will her love with Niall stay strong, or will she be forced to leave behind everything she's come to know?

*A Threequel to "More Than One Direction" and "Choosing One Direction"*


19. Viva La Vida

When the mystery savior leaves, I rush up to my apartment.
For a moment, I forget my whole mission, but once I remember how badly I need to talk to Niall, I get my phone out.
I call him.
No answer.
I try again.
Still no answer.
Once more, and the second ring I hear the phone picked up.
"Hello?" a tired, raspy Irish voice answers.
"Hey, it's me."
"Oh, hi," his voice sounds more alert.
"Can we talk?"
"I guess so. I was sleeping."
"I'm sorry. But I need to talk to you."
"Okay, talk."
"Niall, I know you're hurt and I'm really sorry for that but I never intended to. You know I love you and would never want to hurt you."
"You've hurt me before."
"That was a while ago."
"But I feel like it's happening all over again. This time with a guy that I thought you hated."
"But he's changed. Well, I thought so..."
"What does that mean?"
"Never mind."
"No, tell me."
"It's no big deal."
"Still, I wanna hear it."
"He...kissed me."
"I tried to push him off, but I couldn't."
"So what did you do?"
"Well, some guy beat him up."
"This guy, I don't know- pulled him out of the car and beat him up."
"I don't know, I couldn't see."
"This all happened last night?"
"You went out with him again tonight?" his voice sounds angry.
"Not really, I was gonna go see a movie with all the boys."
"The boys were with me."
"Not Harry."
"You were with Harry too?" his voice sounds even angrier.
"I didn't know it would be just him. I figured he would get you all together. I wanted to see you."
"Oh. You know we're fighting."
"I know, I'm stupid."
"Maybe a little."
"Listen, you've given me a lot to think about. And I'm not ready to forgive you. Maybe it's best we don't talk for a while."
"No, Paul was right. The boys and I need to work some stuff out."
"But Niall, I-"
"I know- you love me. And I love you too."
I breathe a sigh of relief.
The words I haven't heard in forever.
"That's all I wanted to hear. Goodnight, Niall. I love you."
"I love you too."
I lay in bed, but throughout the night, I toss and turn in my sleep.
I can't get certain images out of my mind.
Niall storming into the trailer after he quit the band.
Paul telling me to stay away.
Jake wrapping his jacket over my shoulders after I'd been in the rain.
Jake's face approaching mine before kissing me.
The dark shadow standing over Jake's passed out body.
His tattoos.
Now that I think about them, one stands out in my mind.
On his left arm, cursive writing.
If I think really hard, I can make out what it says.
Viva la vida.
