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.


10. Movie and Ice Cream

~Niall’s P.O.V.~

“So where’ve you been this whole time?” I asked Emma as we walked along the cars passing by.

“I’ve been here. I mean its where I’ve been since I moved the last time we saw each other.” She answered back.

“How’s your dad? And what about yourself?” I asked. She paused for a second and hesitated before she opened her mouth to say something but closed it as if she knew she would regret what she would say.

“My dad’s good. I’m doing great.” She said and added a fake smiled.

“When did you move out with your dad?” I just kept throwing questions at her. She laughed.

“You ask a lot of questions.”

“Sorry.” I said as I reached my hand to the back of my neck in embarrassment. She giggled.

“It’s okay. Ill ask you a question and then you ask one. Keep it even.” Emma said. “Where have YOU been?” she asked putting emphasis on ‘you’.

“I’ve been around the country…. Everywhere. My turn… How long have you been dating Harry?”

“Two years. Three in April. How have your parents been?”

I went wide eyed. I never told her what happened. I took a big gulp and lied,”Great….” Was all I could manage. “So you still sing huh?”

“Yup. I went to a nearby school until my sophomore year. I heard about this school and decided to transfer. I was the ‘new’ kid around so I didn’t have many people to talk to so I sang in the corner of the library once in a while. That’s where I met Harry. What about you? I mean this is the school for the arts. Do you still sing? I remember singing together all the sing when we were little.” She giggled and smiled at the ground. Shivers ran down my back and I started to blush.

“Yes, I came here to help further my career in singing too. And if I liked it, I would stay in the escalating school to this one.” Lies, lies, lies. They were partly the truth but also the lie. The main reason I came here was to find her, my first love…. Emma. It took me three years and my last resort but I found her.

“We should sing together again…” I smiled “With Lou and Harry too.”

“They sing too?”

“Yeah. They’re amazing. Oh there’s the theatre.”


We finished watching the movie and I couldn’t contain myself. Sitting next to her made me want to hold her hand and call her mine. We are on our way to the Ice Cream Parlor right now. It wasn’t too far from the theatre so it didn’t take long to get there.

~Emma’s P.O.V.~

Something is wrong with Niall, it seems like something happened…. Something that would’ve impacted his life. I won’t ask him about it. Shake it off Emma, just enjoy the night.

*Sigh* I wish Harry and Lou were here. The three of us haven’t hung out in a while. But this is a great opportunity to catch up with Niall. We ordered our ice cream and sat down on a table in the corner of the parlor.


We talked and talked and got to know each other even more than we did when we were younger. We laughed just like old times and it felt like we were never separated. I have this weird thing, and I think it maybe a problem…… I’m slowly falling in love with Niall.
