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.


24. Three Girls

~Emma’s POV~

I woke up with Zayn next to me. No sun rays shined through the windows as there wasn’t any. Even so, his beautiful features seemed to outshine everything else in the room. ‘Wait, why am I in bed with Zayn?’ is what’s going through my head. Yeah, he’s in bed with me, but he isn’t even under the blanket. His back is facing against me. I mean we’ve cuddled before. But this time he is so close to the edge of the bed if I move he will fall off. “Zayn?” I whispered. “Zayn.” I said a little louder. I sat up and placed my had on his shoulder. I pulled him towards me so he wouldn’t fall to the ground when he woke up. “Zayn wake up. Why weren’t you under the blanket? It’s freezing down here.” He groaned and his eyes slowly opened up.

“Because if I was under the blanket, I wouldn’t be able to maintain my composure.” He said closing his eyes and facing the ceiling.

“What do you mean?” I asked, confused as to what he meant.

“Emma, what I mean is…” He paused and rose the tension, “Emma Harries, I love you.”

I sat still there and looked at the ground. His words surprised me. Those were the words Harry told me the other day. “Zayn, I have a boyfriend, you know that already.”

He opened his eyes and looked at me. As I was, he sat up and faced me, “Emma, you don’t remember, do you?” His face had concern all over it.

“Remember what?” I asked, but to be honest, I didn’t want to know. I was too scared to find out.

“Em, you guys got in a fight last night. Well, not necessarily. Harry jumped to assumptions.” He told me. My eyes grew wide as I remember the scene. Immediately, tears streamed down my face. I jumped onto Zayn making him fall back onto the bed. I cried into his chest as he hesitated to wrap his arm around me.

“Zayn, I didn’t mean to. Niall kissed me and I didn’t mean to kiss back even if it was for a second, I tried to pull away! But it was too late, Zayn. Harry saw us! He saw us Zayn. It’s all my fault.” I choked out. He rubbed circles onto my back.

“Em, it’s not your fault. If we had to pin this on someone, it’s going to be Niall. Although, Harry should’ve heard you out, he didn’t have to go out and-“ He stopped. For a second I quit crying, it wasn’t too long before I started crying once again.

“Zayn, I-I don’t know what to do. I love him, Zayn.” I told him.

“Shh, it’s okay. Come on. Everybody must be worried. How ‘bout we go upstairs?” He suggested. I nodded and he helped me up. We walked up the stairs and were about to step into the kitchen until I saw Harry sitting in the kitchen. I stopped and hid behind Zayn. Everyone else was in the kitchen but none of seem to look or talk to Harry. He saw me and walked out into the living room.

“Emma!” Dani yelled and ran towards me. She grabbed my hands and looked at me. “What do you say we go and have a girl’s day out?” She asked me completely excited. I know she is doing this to cheer me up.

I smiled from ear to ear. “Do you know how long I’ve been waiting to hear those words?” I asked. She squealed and rushed me upstairs to take a shower and change.

“Let’s go shopping first.”  She said. We got into my car and drove to the nearest mall. For hours and hours we shop with bunches of bags in our hands. We decided to take a break and grab something to eat. We both agreed on Chinese and ate there in the mall.

“Dani, thank you so much for taking me out today. I really needed it.” I thanked her.

She accepted it with a warming smile. “I’m sorry about what happened between you and Harry.” She spilled out the sympathy I knew she had when it happened.

“I know we’ve just met but it feels like I already know you. I mean you cried last night even though I was the one going through a tough scene. But I kind of figured it was tears of sympathy.”

“You know, you’re a really strong girl Emma.” She looked me straight in the eye. “I didn’t think you would be able to come shopping with me after what happened. I wouldn’t have been able to pull myself together.” She complimented me.

 “Thank you. But I’m really not that strong. I’ve always been a cry baby. And when you asked me to go hang out today I was so happy because it’s been so long since I’ve have a ‘girl friend’,” I told her.

“Don’t you have any other girl friends?” She asked. I nodded.

“She moved to Florida a while back but I still keep in contact.” Even Danielle just arrived yesterday, it was so easy to talk to her. “I’m actually going to surprise her and fly her over here to live with us. Her parents don’t mind because they are over seas with business.”

“When!! I want to meet her. And that would mean we have 3 girls in the house!!” She was just as anxious as me when I found out Dani was coming to live with us.

“Well I have the plane flight ready. I could call her right now?” I suggested.

“Yes! Yes! Call her now!!” She yelled and everyone had their eyes on us.

“Okay, okay!” I agreed. Grabbing my phone from my pocket, I scrolled through my recents and pressed her contact. It rung and she answered right away, “Hey, Aly. I have a surprise for you.”

Aly: “Yeah? And what would that be?”

Emma: What would you say if I got you a one way ticket to come over here?”

Aly: “I would saaaay I don’t have money to get a ticket back.

Emma: “You don’t need one because you are going to come live with me.”

Aly: “Are you serious?! But is it really okay?!”

Emma: “Come on, it’s fine. And don’t you want get all cuddly wuddly with Louis.”

Aly: “Emma!”

Emma: *Laughs* “Just go to the airport and send your stuff to be shipped later. Just go to the airport and tell them your name. Your flight is tomorrow.”

Aly: “Alright! I see you soon then!”


I hung up my phone and looked at Dani. “Looks like there’s going to be 3 girls in the house.” She screamed once again and the waiter at the restaurant asked us to be quiet. We started bursting out laughing.


We watched movie and headed back home. By then it was late at night and everyone was home except Harry….
