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.


19. Please, Be Careful

A/N – I find it a little easier to write in a narrative point of view so I’ll be writing it like this for a while. I think it turns out better than when it is in a personal point of view. Vote and feedback please? Thanks Xx

~Narrative POV~

Harry had left with Liam and Louis to the grocery store and Emma was left alone in the house with Zayn and Niall. Emma snuck around the house so the two wouldn’t hear her. With her crutches hitting the floor with every step, it was hard. She didn’t really mind. Making her way towards the basement she carefully got to the bottom of the stairs. The door to the ‘secret room’ she discovered with Zayn was within the room in the corner. The door slowly creaked as she opened it wide enough for herself to walk in. She lifted the carpet above the handle and opened it. That’s when she saw Zayn playing games on the flat screen they snuck in.

He smiled as he saw her open the flap to the room, “Hey, Em. What are you doing up?” He got on his feet to help Emma down the ladder.

“Thanks,” she showed her gratitude. “Looks like we thought the same,” She said and plopped on the large futon they had cleaned up.

He chuckled and sat next to her. Grabbing the game remote he chatted with Emma, “So, how are you feeling?” He asked pretty concerned.

“I’m fine. Surprisingly, I don’t feel any pain.” It was true that she was stabbed and of course her loved ones would be worried, although, she was in a coma so that extended her healing time a bit. She was completely open with how she was feeling, making sure not to worry them any further.

“Listen, you don’t have to lie. We all are a little or very worried about you. If anything is wrong, tell anyone of us.” Trying to hide the fact that he is head over heels in love with her, he kept speaking for all the boys when he really was trying to point to himself.

“Zayn, I’m really grateful for you guys caring so much. But really, I’m fine.” She thanked him and gave him a friendly peck on his cheek. Right then, his heart began pounding like the drums of a rock band. He took in deep breathes. “So how bout I kick your butt in this racing game you have there?” She challenged him.

“Is that a challenge or a threat I hear?” He defended himself handing her a controller.

“Both, buddy. Bring it on.” She continued.


They played for a good 20-30  minutes when they heard Niall calling out to them, “Zayn?! Emma?! Where are you guys?” They laughed and quickly made their way up the stairs, still keeping their secret room private.

“We’re down here!!” They replied to his yelling. Niall ran half way down the stairs.

“What’re you guys doing down here?” He asked. They looked around their surroundings realizing there was no furniture in the basement yet. Taking a glance at each other, telling one to make something up.

“Oh, um. Just wanted to come see how big it was to…. Umm, visual how to set up some furniture.” Emma spoke up first.

“Uh, yeah! I came down to…. Um, make sure she didn’t…. uhhhhhh…. Fall down the stairs! Yeah, that’s what I came down here for.” Zayn said. Emma chuckled at how long it took him to make up his lie. He kept his eyes on Niall and tried to contain his laugh with a smile. Not too long after, they broke out laughing.

“Umm, Okay?” Niall stood there confused. “Well, I was just wondering where you guys were. Thought you might’ve gone with the others to the market and left me here alone.” He said a little embarrassed.

“Oh, sorry. We wouldn’t do that though. How ‘bout we go upstairs and watch some TV.” Emma suggested.


Harry, Liam, and Louis walked through the doors with arms full of bags in their arms. “Oh my gosh. Why did you guys buy so much?” Emma asked, mesmerized by the amount of bags she followed them into the kitchen. They set the bags down and sighed. “And why did you carry it all at once?” She laughed at them.

“I’d carry 100 bags before I take a second trip.” Louis explained. Niall came running into the kitchen noticing the food. “And that’s why we bought so much food.” He added.

“Oh yeah, before I forget, Niall and Zayn. Can I talk to you guys outside?” Liam asked. They looked at each other in bewilderment and nodded. The three walked out to the porch and sat on the patio furniture. “So, before we left, Louis and I were waiting for Harry when we over heard his conversation with Emma.” He paused.

“Is this going somewhere?” Niall asked.

“Listen, I know you guys like Emma. And don’t try to deny it. Everyone knows BUT Emma. Do you know what Haz was telling her before we left?” He questioned them. They waited for him to continue. “He was scared…..”

“Scared? Scared of what?” Zayn spoke up.

“Scared that one of you two would steal the love of his life. He went on and on about their future. He really loves Emma. I don’t know what extent your love for her goes. But don’t you guys dare hurt their relationship. If you are going to express your feelings to Em, you better wait until its over between them. If that even happens. I’m sorry for going all cops on you guys, I just don’t want any drama in here. Or anyone else getting hurt. So please, be careful.” Liam finished explaining. The two looked so devastated. They never made eye contact and went back inside to think a bit before rejoining the group.
