Now Or Never

Niall and Emma got along from the day they met. Both the same age, Niall being 6 months older than Emma. They’ve known each other since they were three. The two spent every day with each other. And by coincidence they were in the same classes. They were two peas in a pod, the best of friends, almost like siblings I guess you could say. Until one day everything went downhill. As they were both 8, Emma’s mother died. In addition, her father started drinking and smoking and eventually went into depression. Emma and her father had moved from Miami, Florida to Los Angeles, California. The two inseparable were torn apart.


20. Dani

~Narrative POV~

After that little lecture from Liam, he walked back into the kitchen with a surprise for Emma. Anxious of what she would think, he waited for the right moment. “Guys, can I ask something?” He gestured to the 4 boys and girl in front of him. They simple nodded. “So Em, I know you are the only girl in this house, so what would you say if my girlfriend moved in with us…” He proposed. They all just stood there staring at him. “I mean if it’s not too much to ask, of course she would help pay for things and-“

“Liam, Yes!!! When is she coming?! I mean we still have 4 unused rooms!!” Emma was in a moment of bliss right now. Being in a house full of boys was fun but she did need those girly times with a friend.

“Well, she told me she wouldn’t start packing until I got permission. She didn’t want to intrude.” He said. She was one of the most polite girls he had ever  met and was truly in love with her, just like Harry was with Emma.

“CALL HER NOW!! IT’S TOTALLY OKAY!! RIGHT GUYS?!” Emma as more excited than someone winning the lottery ticket.

“Liam! Why didn’t you tell us you had a girlfriend? You sneaky bastard,” Harry said. He just laughed in response. Liam took out his phone and quickly called his girlfriend.

“Hello? Hey, Dani. Guess what?” He tempted her. Before he could tell her the good news, Emma snatched the phone from his hands.

“Hello?! Hi, this is Emma! Harry’s Girlfriend!! I just wanted to tell you it’s totally okay for you to move in! Actually, the sooner the better! I’m so lonely in this house with big muscley  monkeys!!” She yelled into the phone. Dani started cracking up and Liam took his phone back.

“Babe? Yeah, so what do you think?” Liam awaited her answer. A few seconds later he was smiling from ear to ear. “Great! So I’ll see you in less than a week?” He asked. “Okay, love you, babe. Bye,” He set his phone down.

“Guys, where did Em go?” Zayn asked. Emma snuck out of the kitchen after she realized she called them all monkeys. “And did she call us monkeys earlier?”

They looked out the door to see Emma not too far with her crutches. Harry ran up to her and threw her over his shoulders. “Harry! Put me down!” She said pounding his back, Harry feeling no pain inflicted on him.

“Okay, if you insist,” He set her down in the blanket the boys were spreading out. They rolled her up like a burrito and laid her on the floor. “Monkeys, huh?” He said.

“Oh my gosh. Guys, get me out of this thing.”

“Not until you apologize, Burrito Butt,” Niall said.

“Never,” she refused.

“Have fun, babe,” The boys walked away and she laid there all by herself.

“I can’t wait until Dani gets here,” She sighed to herself.


Eventually she fell asleep laying there for hours. She was pretty persistent. Her boyfriend walked over to where she was on the floor and set her on the couch. He unwrapped her from the blanket and carefully laid it over her. Unfortunately, he wasn’t careful enough to let her sleep. She moaned and grabbed hold of his hand before he could walk away. “Harry, don’t leave me.” She whispered with her eyes still closed. He slowly got under the blanket and laid next to the one he loved dearly. “I’m sorry I called you guys monkeys.” She said still very sleepy. Her eyes never fluttered open as she spoke. It was almost as if she was talking in her sleep.

Harry chuckled. “I’m sure you really didn’t mean it, babe,” He stretched his arm around to pull her closer to him. She nuzzled her head into his chest as she kept speaking.

“You know, Harry. You’re my dream boyfriend. All the characteristics I could ever want.” He smiled and played with her hair.

“Hmm, and what would those characteristics be?” Curious to what she was thinking, he asked.

“Simple… Strong yet gentle, and always smiling.” He was surprised and couldn’t wipe the grin from his face. He pulled her even closer to him and never let her go. He giggled when he felt her reach her hands down to run over his abs, “The abs are kinda like a bonus,” she giggled with him.

A few seconds later and Harry got a notification for a tweet. He opened it up to see Louis had tweeted a picture of the two cuddling on the living room couch. It read, “I don’t think there is a couple cuter than these two. GET MARRIED ALREADY!” They smiled at the tweet and saw Louis lurking above the couch smiling.

“Umm, Lou. Having a moment here?” Harry said.

“I know,” Louis replied. “Can I just cuddle with you guys? I’m scaaaaaared.” He whined.

Immediately Emma said, “Nope… Leave.” Her eyes were shut closed and she moved unbelievable close to her boyfriend. Harry laughed.

“Sorry, mate. She’s mine.” Harry defended his girl. Louis then tried to pry them apart. Emma groaned as he pulled her away from Harry. She didn’t let go of Harry’s torso. Still too tired to argue with him, she just kept holding him.

“Mmm, Harrrrry. Don’t let him take me,” She whined. Not too long after, she lost her grip and Louis took her. He ran over to the couch and quickly cuddled her.

“Louis, really? Do you mind NOT cuddling my girlfriend?” He pulled her arm to take her back.

“Haz, look. She fell asleep.” He laughed.

“Yeah, that’s great. But I’d like it if she fell asleep in my arms,” Harry tried harder to get his girlfriend back.

“Awe, but she’s so warm. And great at cuddling. Pleeeeeeaaaaase.” Louis begged.

Harry sighed, ”No… I want my babe now, please.”

“But, but, but….”

Harry wouldn’t give in, “No, seriously. I don’t like seeing another man holding my girl. Even if it’s you. I’m sorry.” Louis groaned and let her go. He walked away and gave Harry a pouty look. He just shook his head. Picking up Emma, he carried her to their room and changed her into one of his big shirts. He changed into sweatpants and took off his shirt then went to sleep himself right next to her.
