Show me

He met her on a rainy night after his Tour Bus broke down. She knew who he was, and wasn't sure she wanted to take a trip into his world. He wanted a taste of her life, so when he takes a break from the fame to spend time with her, she opens up his eyes to her way of life. A completed Niall Horan story.


16. Dinner and a show of anger

The first week of school was easy. We learned about our classes and got our schedules for the first semester. I'm exhausted from all the presentations and welcoming's I've had to sit through so I'm not surprised when I wake up on Saturday at noon. I huff out a long breath and push my hair out of my face. The suns up and it's quiet in the house. I pull myself out of bed and shuffle into the bathroom to take a shower. When I'm all dressed and ready for the day, I trudge downstairs and pour some cereal. Niall leaves on Monday, and we are going for dinner tomorrow night. I have my dress all picked out, because he's taking me to a fancy restaurant. The other boys are going to be there too, so it won't be like a date. It's hard to believe we broke up less than a week ago, but are still moving on as friends.  I've seen him a few times during the week, he picked me up from school on Tuesday and Wednesday, and we watched a movie at my house last night with Gracie. 

I dump my bowl into the sink and wash it off. Today I'm just going to draw and be creative. I need to get my mind to focus on something other than Niall and school. I bundle up and head up to my tree house. I spend a little over two hours before I break for a snack. I have marker and ink all over my hands and jeans. My phone buzzes in my back pocket from an incoming text. When the screen lights up I read 'Hey Trea. Are we still on for tomorrow night?' It's from Niall and I text back saying we are, and asking what time he's going to pick me up. He replies almost right away saying '7:00 good?' I say yes and close my phone. 

By the time Sunday night rolls around, I finished a couple drawings and started a painting. Niall's picking me up in half an hour and I'm putting on my make-up that I found hidden under my bed from when Niall took it a couple weeks ago. I have on a pink dress that falls just before my knees and my hair is down in waves. This is the last time I'll see Niall until who knows when and I miss him already. 

Niall picks me up at 7:00 and we arrive at the restaurant 20 minutes later. The other boys are already sitting in a booth at the back and Niall and I weave our way through the other tables. It's one of the fanciest places in our city and it's very expensive. I sit  in the last spot on one side of the booth while Niall take the other across from me. Harry is on my right and then Louis on his. Zayn is on Niall's left and then Liam. The waitress comes around and collects our drink orders, then comes back to collect our food orders. 

"So are you guys all ready to get back on tour?" I ask, to start the conversation.

"Yeah I'm stoked! See all our fans and being on the road again is going to be nice" Louis says and takes a sip of his water, a smiles on his face.

"I'm excited to sing again and see all the crazy signs the fans make for the shows" Zayn tells me.

"What time are you guys leaving tomorrow at?" I spear some salad with my fork and look around the table at the boys.

"6:00 am. Management wants to get a move on early" Liam says

"Have you and Niall planned Skype dates and all that stuff?" Harry asks, poking my arm with a silly smile on his face. My eyes drop to my lap, then up to Niall. I mouth the words 'You haven't told them yet?' to him and he shakes his head.

"Trea and I are just friends. It was just a fling." Niall tries to wave it off but I almost stop breathing at the words 'just a fling' 

"So that's all it was to you? Just a fling?" I put down my fork and look at him, clearly hurt by his words but trying to hide it.

"You said it yourself. We lead two completely different lives. We're better off as friends pretending it never happened" Niall looks angry, and now I see what I didn't earlier. He's hurt just as much as I am, but now he's blaming it on me. 

"I did not say that! I said I have to get back to my life just like you have to get back to your tour!" I'm almost yelling at him now, angry that he would put words in my mouth that I didn't say.

"You were thinking it. I saw your face when you said 'You understand why it's better this way, right?' Just an easy way of saying that we should forget about it" Niall raises his voice, matching my tone. Was I just saying that to cover up the fact that I wanted to forget? I loved the time we spent together, but I knew it was going to come to an end. That's when I realize that I wanted to forget because I don't get how Niall could love me. I'm just a girl living in a small city who will probably never leave, no matter how much I want to. So forgetting and getting back to my life is easiest for me. But do I really want to do that now that I've had a taste of what life could be like with Niall? My heart whispers to me that last question. I push it away. 

"I don't know if I want to forget! I don't know! But I do know that we're both angry at each other for different reasons!" I stand up, heat flooding to my cheeks and my eyes burning into Niall's. 

"Oh yeah? and what are those reasons?" By now the whole restaurant is watching us yell. Niall stands up and faces me.

"You're mad at me for abandoning us because I'm scared at what will happen if we're together. I'm scared of the unknown. You were my first real relationship and I didn't know what else to do. And I'm mad at you for giving me a taste of something I can't have. Skype meetings and phone calls only go so far. I have to focus on school so I can't get up and leave with you. We would slowly drift apart and that to me seems way more painful than leaving as friends." Saying all that out loud takes a huge weight off my chest, and I realize things that I didn't in my head. 

There's a deafening silence in the restaurant. Niall and I's eyes are locked on each other as we both think about what I just said.

"This is it then?" Niall says and takes a step towards me his expression softening.

"I guess so" I say in a quiet voice. We both stand there, looking at each other. Tears form in my eyes and I hastily wipe them away as I turn to leave the restaurant  I can feel his eyes on my back the whole way out, and it's not until I turn the corner and start running home that I burst into tears.
