Staying Strong

Kaylee's best friend Niall has been away on tour for the past year with his band, One Direction. To pass the time, Kaylee started hanging out with Jess, a girl from school. What she didn't know, was that Jess has a deep secret that could affect Kaylee and Niall. When Niall returns, he finds out Kaylee has changed, and not for the better.


2. Chapter 1

I've known Niall since we were kids. We grew up next to each other, playing with each other every day. I remember our best memories, like going to the pool in the summer and pushing each other into the water, or keeping each other warm during the winter, sipping hot chocolate by his fireplace. He was like the big brother I never had, and I loved him for that. His family liked me, my family liked him, and we were constantly with each other. But by the time we got to the 10th grade, we got separated. Niall went to audition for the X-Factor. 

I was proud of him for trying to pursue his dreams. I knew he worked hard and long and sang to me when he was bored. He had an amazing voice. But being away from him for so long made me miss him so much. It was as if my only sibling vanished off the face of the Earth. He couldn't keep in touch with me, so the only way I could see him was on the television. He was eventually put with four other boys, and went by the name of One Direction. 

Niall and the boys sounded great together, and won third place on the show. The night after they won, I got a Skype request from Niall.

"Hey Kaylee!" He started the conversation with his cute smile and crooked teeth. "Hey Niall! Congratulations!" I answered happily. I could tell he's been waiting to hear my voice. He laughed. Oh how I love that adorable laugh of his, so distinct and loud. "Thanks, how have you been, love?" He always called me love, since about third grade. "I've been great. I missed you though." I sighed. "You look..different." He said, looking up my my hair. "Oh, yeah. I dyed it, that's all." I said, slumping in my seat so he couldn't see my outfit. He wouldn't approve of my cut off shorts and skin tight tee. "Are you okay? Is something bothering you?" He always got this way when he thought something wrong. Most of the time he was right. "I just miss you, that's all. When do you think you'll be home?" I asked, changing the subject. "Soon enough, love." He winked. 'Please don't make me wait much longer." I whined playfully. "I miss you too much for that." "In about a week." He smiled. "I have a surprise for you when I get back." He smiled held a bag in front of the camera. "I have to go, I'll talk to you soon?" He said sadly. "Of course, whenever's good for you." I flashed a smile. "I love you." He smiled, blowing a kiss to the camera. "I love you, too Leprechaun." He laughed as he clicked End Call.

I felt guilty hiding all my changes from Niall. What if he found out I smoked? Or if he found out anything else I have been hiding from everyone? I felt the urge to call Jess to ask her to hang out, but I knew I would be getting myself into more trouble. I don't want to change for anyone, and that includes Niall. But how can I not fall under the spell of his charming accent and gorgeous smile? Nothing will be the same when he gets back, including me. Something Jess handed me one night changed my world for a long time, and I could tell it wasn't going to go away soon. I put my thoughts aside and stepped outside my flat for some fresh air. Just then, Tom and his friend Bubba came down the street, bouncing a basketball. 

"Hey, it's Kaylee." Tom said with a smile. Bubba looked me up and down and followed Tom over to me. 

"Hey, Tommy." I smiled. We hugged tightly. "What are you doing?" I asked, looking at the basketball.

"Bored I guess. I saw your beauty taking up this street and thought I would come over." I blushed. Tom always made me blush. I clasped my hands together and stretched them in the air, yawing in the process. Tom handed Bubba the basketball and pinched my tiny waist. 

"Stop that," I joked, throwing my hands down onto his arms. He locked our arms together and picked me up and spun me around. I felt Bubba staring at my butt. I laughed as he put me down. 

"Not unless you want me to." He laughed, his dark blue braces gleaming in the sun. I took his snap back off his head and placed it on mine. I always took his hat because I knew it got him mad.

"You look amazing in my snap backs." He smiled widely, showing off two deep dimples. "But when do you not look amazing?" I smiled and spun around. My long, straight, brown hair was sleek and shiny in the burning sunlight. 

"I have to go, here's your ball." Bubba said, obviously feeling awkward. Tom waved and took the ball.

"Want to come in?" I asked Tom, knowing he would want to get out of the sizzling heat. 

"Sure." He smiled as he walked up the steps behind me leading into my flat.

"Make yourself at home." I showed him the sofa and turned on the TV. "I'll be out in a minute." I handed him back his hat and walked into the kitchen. I pulled out my phone and checked my messages. 

One from Mark- 'Hey gorgeous, wanna come over?'

One from John- 'Hey there, love. You free tonight?'

One from Niall- 'I just found out we're coming back sooner. I'll be home in two days! I'm so excited! Can't wait! Leave your door unlocked, I'm coning to see you before anyone else. I love you!'

I didn't care about the other texts. I just cared that my Niall was coming home.

**Author's Note- I couldn't wait to post it! I've been saving it for so long and I figured, why not today? I'm still writing You Stole My Heart (Zayn Fan  Fiction). Hope you enjoyed the first chapter! -Megan
