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.


4. Chapter 3

After I brushed my hair I went into the kitchen again and picked up the pack of cigarettes from the counter. I took one out, walked outside, and sat on the front step. I inhaled the smoke and it gave me sense of calmness, something I haven't felt in along time. Everyone tells me to stop smoking but I can't. It's just become a habit, and I have Jess to thank for that. Jess isn't the best influence, but she's my best friend. Ever since Niall left and I had no one to turn to, Jess has always been there for me. She helped me through it all.

I slid my phone out of my pocket and found Jess in my contacts.

Hey, you busy?

Jess- No. Why?

Idk, I'm bored. I thought we could hang out?

Jess- Maybe later? Chris is over.

Oh, okay. Text me then?

No answer back. Whenever she was with Chris I felt invisible. Chris is her ex boyfriend, yet they were constantly with each other. I doubt they're still broken up, but Jess claims they are. To be honest, I never actually saw Chris. I can care less though, the only boy that matters right now is Niall. He's the only boy that ever really mattered to me. Sure, I've had flings and short little relationships here and there, but none of those ever meant as much to me as Niall, and we never even dated.

I miss him so much. I don't know if I can go much longer without him. I know I don't have to wait much longer, but the minutes feel like hours, the hours feel like days, and the days feel like years. It seems a little much for a friend, but I don't know if I want him as 'just a friend' any more. I can't describe my feelings for him, but something inside me says I want him, but something is telling me to stay away. Just as I was thinking about him, he called me.

"Hey love!" Niall said excitedly. "I've missed you." I heard the sadness when he said that.

"I missed you too Niall." I said with a smile on my face. "When will you be back?"

"Either tomorrow or the day after. Soon enough babe." I heard a voice behind him.

"Ohhhhh Niall. Who's that?"  The voice was deep and raspy.

"Haha, it's my old friend from back home, Harry." His voice got distant, like he held it away from his face and he laughed. "Sorry about that." He chuckled.

"It's fine," I laughed. "Will I get to meet the rest of the band?" I asked.

"Of course." He said politely. "If you want. Just to get you touched up on their names, Harry has curly hair, Louis is always next to Harry, Liam is polite and quiet, and Zayn is also quite, but he has black hair. Call Zayn Zen to get him mad." He laughed.

"Alright. Sounds simple enough." I smiled. "I just can't wait any longer." I whined.

"Me either." He said. "Kay, I have to go. I'll talk to you later, or tomorrow. Or whenever I have some down time. I love you Kay."

My heart skipped a beat whenever he said I love you. I got butterflies in my stomach like a lovesick preteen. "I love you too." I managed to say. "Bye, Leprechaun." I smiled.

"Haha, bye Kaylee." And the call was ended. Why can't he just come home already? I'm worried he won't accept me though. That thought constantly ran through my mind. Maybe I changed too much for him. Maybe he changed too much for me. Maybe our friendship won't even work out anymore.

I needed to keep the negative thoughts out of my mind, and focus on the positives. But I guess there really are no positives, besides the fact my first best-friend is coming home.
