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.

22. You Knew He Was There

~Emma’s POV~

I released Niall from the hug I had given him. The back of my hands helped to wipe the tears I broke out. When I finished, I saw Niall gazing at me. I looked into his eyes and saw how beautiful they were. Up until now, I completely forgot about my feelings for him when we were younger. And then I met Harry, he’s the reason why I forgot. But I can’t just ignore the feelings I had for Niall, because I still might feel those butterflies in my stomach. It came to me as a surprise when Niall Pressed his lips to mine. At first I hesitated, then I kissed back just for a second. As my final decision I remembered I have a boyfriend. I tried to pull away but Niall held me closer and refused to let me go. I squeezed my right hand from between our chests and punched him in the gut. That’s when I heard the front door slam. My first thought was Harry. What if he saw that? What’ll I say to him? What can I say to him? Turns out, it was Harry.

He got into car and quickly sped out of the driveway. I panicked and sprinted to my keys on the hook. I immediately tried to run out the door when Niall grabbed my arm, “We should just wait for him to return, and I’ll explain everything to him.” He said.

“No! Because if you explain, it’ll make things even more complicated! I have to go find him and tell him myself! This is your fault! Why did you have to go and kiss me?!” Tears easily ran down my face.

“Me?! You’re blaming this on me! You were the one who hugged me! And you even kissed back! Even if it was just for a moment! I can’t help it if I’m in love with the girl who I’ve known since forever! I can’t help that we were alone in this house!” He yelled back. Then his tone changed, “Until Harry walked in.” He whispered.

“You knew he was there didn’t you?” I laughed mockingly. “YOU KNEW HARRY WAS THERE DIDN’T YOU?!” I said this time louder and definitely more furious. “ANSWER ME, DAMMIT! DID YOU KNOW HE WAS THERE?!” I forced him into telling me.

He looked towards the floor. “No,” he denied it.

“Your such a bad liar. I saw you look towards the living room doorway! You knew Harry was there!”

“SO WHAT?! I DID KNOW HE WAS THERE! BUT I COULDN’T STAND IT ANYMORE! I COULDN’T STAND TO SEE HIM HOLDING YOU IN HIS ARMS!! I WANT THAT TO BE ME! THE ONE TO MAKE YOU HAPPY! THE ONE TO FLOWER YOU IN KISSES! The one you look at with loving eyes.” He calmed down in the last sentence.

I was so full of anger, I couldn’t care less about how he felt right now. I chuckled evily, “Well, that had an opposite affect didn’t it.” I said, giving him the cold shoulder. He let go of my arm and looked down once again. “I’m going to look for Harry!”

“I’m telling you, it’s a bad idea!” He stopped me once again.

“I’m not going to let him stay out there at night with the wrong idea in his head! He’s a sensitive guy! I can’t let him think things like that! I don’t want to hurt him! He’s means the world to me! Niall, Let me go!” I defended myself.

He softened his grip on my arm but didn’t quite let go. “Please, I think he needs some time to cool down, and you do too.” I shook him off and ran out the house anyway.

I drove around for hours and didn’t see his car anywhere. It was midnight so I decided to head home, hoping he would be there. I drove into the driveway and all the guys’ cars were there except one; Harry’s. I sighed as a tear streamed down my face. Putting the shift gear into park, I got out of the car and locked it. I grabbed the key from my purse and unlocked the door. I walked into the living room to see everyone and one new girl sitting next to Liam. That’s when I realized it was Dani. “Hey! You’re Danielle right?!” I walked towards her.

She laughed, “That’s me.”

“I’m Emma.” I introduced myself.

“You can call me Dani.” She told me. We laughed and gave each other a hug rather than a handshake.

“Liam, she’s beautiful! Great choice, buddy!” I winked and we laughed loudly. She took a seat on Liam’s laugh. They looked like the happiest couple.

It took me a while to realize I was staring at them and smiling, “Emma, are you alright?” Liam asked, noticing me staring.

I came out from my daze, “Uh, yeah. I’m sorry. It’s just you two are so cute.” I sighed, “I think Harry and I got into a fight.” I finished.

 “Yeah, what happened? We were worried, so we all waited here until you came home. All Niall would say was you went out to look for him. And from what I see, you didn’t succeed.” Zayn jumped in.

I sat down on an empty couch, “Well, Mr. Horan kissed me when he knew Harry was watching.” I glared at him. He was about to speak but before he could, “Ah, and I kissed back just for a second. Then I tried to pull away and he wouldn’t let me go. That’s when I heard Harry run out the house.” Tears began forming in my eyes, “I’m a horrible woman, aren’t I?” I brought my knees to my chest and my hands covered my face. I cried without mercy. “I’m sorry I had to welcome you to this, Dani.”

“Don’t worry about. Things happen.” She said understandingly.

Liam spoke up and sat Dani in the spot next to him, “Wait, Niall. You kissed her.” He said infuriated. “I told you not to get involved with their relationship! I told to you to stay away from their relationship! I told you not to hurt either of them! And now you went and hurt them both!” He yelled.

“Li-“ I started but Niall defended himself.

“Well, I’m sorry! I can’t hold in my feelings for the girl I love!” He yelled back and stood up. Liam clenched his fist.

“Guys, please stop!” I said when we heard the front door open. “Harry…”I said relieved and smiled. My smile was completely wiped away when I saw him walk holding another girl’s hand. What was going on?....
