The A Team

"By Matinee I love you! Daddy will be here to pick you up at 3 ok?" I ask kissing my daughters forehead.
"Ok mommy" she says before she runs off to the middle of the field to start football practice. (Soccer)
"She looks so much like you" Niall says as I open the car door.

"Yeah I guess, but she has your eyes, and let's hope she doesn't play like me haha" I laugh as I put the car in reverse. Niall snorts really loud. "Ha yeah, lets pray, not hope Hahaahaha" He cackled.
"Do you remember my first practice annnnd the first time we met?" I ask looking at him out of the corner of my eye"How can I forget, it was the first time I ever saw my soul mate. And broke a bone." He whispered the last part.
"HAY it's not my fault your face was in the way" I laugh
"Oh yea blame it on that" He teased.

13. Chapter 12

“Laramie we have to be rational about this. I refuse to take away the most precious thing in the heat of the moment. Losing your virginity should be special and wonderful. Are you sure you want to throw it away because we’re both horny teenagers?” He said.

I huffed out and moved off of him. “I guess not. But I still need some type of relief here or I’ll combust.” I said.

Niall let out a chuckle and grabbed my hand. “Well then my little lady gets what she wants.” He said.

“You first Niall. If you start with me and you’re all lusty over there then neither of us will have a clear head.” I said.

“I never have a clear head around you cuddles.” He said.

“Whatever. Pants off big boy.” I said.

And I began the festivities of the night.

** ** ** **

Niall’s Pov:

I woke to the harsh sound of my phone ringing and I rolled over careful not to wake up the beautiful girl next to me. I got out of bed and walked down the hall to the kitchen answering the phone.

“Hello?” I said, groggily.

“Niall? God Niall were you with that little bitch again last night?” Ed’s voice rang through the phone.

“Ed what the hell do you want?” I asked.

“Well there is a girl with green hair passed out on my lawn by the name of Hanna and she won’t stop saying, ‘Laramie I’m a bad friend.’ I take it that this chick knows your girl.” He said. “Now I would appreciate it if someone came to get her away from my house.” He said, irritated.

“Yeah Ed, I’ll be there in ten.” I sighed.

What the hell was Hanna doing on Ed’s lawn at five in the morning? I walked back to my room and grabbed a pair of pants and threw on a hoodie, not bothering with a shirt. I kissed Laramie’s forehead and then found some paper to write a note on and placed it on my pillow.

‘If you wake up before I get back I’m sorry for skipping out so early but there was an emergency. No one died so keep calm and I will be back as soon as I can. Last night was nice and I can’t wait for the day we finally make love. Love, Niall.’

 I slowly shut the door to my room and then made my way to my car cranking it up. I dialed Justin’s number but it went straight to voicemail and I slammed my phone in the console.

“God he’s such a dick sometimes.” I muttered pulling out of the apartment complex and driving to Ed’s. When I got there Hanna was passed out on the curb and she looked dead. I stopped the car and slammed my door making my way to the girls limp body. I picked her up and she made a noise in the back of her throat.

“I’m such a bad friend.” She muttered, her head flopping on my shoulder.

“No you aren’t Hanna. It’s okay.” I said cooing the very intoxicated girl in my arms.

I finally got her in the backseat of my car and buckled her up, making sure she was safe and stable before I walked up to Ed’s door and knocked.

“Finally that bitch-“ I cut him off decking him straight in the nose.

“That was for calling my girlfriend a little bitch.” I said and I delivered another blow to his jaw. “And that is for being a piece of scum and not helping out a helpless girl and leaving her on the curb of a street. Now if you’ll excuse me asshole I have a two girls to feed.” I said walking back to my car and getting in.

“How you doing back there Hanna?” I asked. 

“I’m okay Niall, just have a little bit of a headache.” She said. 
I handed her a water from my front seat and dug around in my dash looking for some pain killers. “Take these kid, they should help.” I said.

I pulled off and picked up my phone and dialed Justin’s number once more. When he didn’t answer this time I decided to leave a message. “Hey prick, guess who I found on a curb passed out and possibly in the stages of hypothermia at five in the morning. Your girlfriend. You better have an explanation or I’ll kick your ass man.” I said hanging up and placing the phone back in the console.

“Thank you Niall.” Hanna said, quietly. 
“It’s cool. When we get back to mine I expect an explanation though, maybe then Laramie won’t kill you if I know the whole story.” I said stopping at a light.

“You’re so good for her you know. She’s such a good person Niall, don’t hurt her.” She said.

“I wouldn’t dream of it, Hanna.” I said.

It was quiet for a few minutes before I spoke again, “You can do so much better than Justin, Hanna.” I said.

“But I love him. He may not be the best for me but I believe he can get better, if I just keep helping him then maybe one day he’ll realize that he’s much better than how he acts.” She said.

The rest of the ride to my place was silent. When we arrived I got out and carried a sleeping Hanna out of the car taking her into my flat where Laramie was sitting on the couch.

“Oh my god, Hanna?” She said, shooting up from her seat and rushing over to help. “Niall what the hell is going on?” She asked.

“Ed called this earlier and said she was out on his lawn so I went and got her. She’s still a little hungover so I’m just going to put her in the spare room and let her sleep.” I said.

“Okay. Do you need my help?” She asked.

“Go get her some of my clothes and get her dressed.” I said as I opened the door to my guest bedroom and gently putting her on the bed.

Laramie came back in and went straight for Hanna. She had a wet cloth in her hand and began to wipe Hanna’s face with it gently and cooing quietly to her. She would make such a great mum one day. Wow. That was an inappropriate thought, way too early to think about kids.

“I’m going to make some breakfast.” I cleared my throat and kissed Laramie’s head before walking out and to my kitchen. 
I was still reeling over the fact I thought about Laramie and me with children in high school, it was ludicrous and immature. I pulled out a few pans and began cooking when I felt Laramie’s small arms wrap around me, her face pressing into my back.

“Thank you for that Niall. It was really sweet of you.” She mumbled and let out a little yawn. 

“It’s fine cuddles.” I said. It came out much colder and harsh then I had wanted it to and I felt her flinch against me before she let go.

“Sorry. That wasn’t how it sounded.” I said.

“No it’s okay. There’s obviously something on your mind. You wanna talk about it.” She said.

“No, it’s silly.” I said, flipping a pancake.

“It can’t be silly if you’re thinking about this much, spill Horan.”

“You’re going to freak out. I wouldn’t blame you.” I sighed.

“What is it Niall.” She asked.

“When you were in there with Hanna I had this thought about you and I guess it scared me.” I said.

“Why did it scare you? What was it?”

“I just- watching you care for her set of this nerve in me, I just got this thought that you would make a really good Mum. It scares me because I thought that for a moment we were this couple who was matured and grown up enough to even think that. But we’re kids Laramie.” I said.

“It’s okay to think about the future, Niall. I want kids and I think that if I were to have any I’d want you to be the father. It is scary to think that you’re thinking about being in a relationship with a person for such a long time at this age, but we love each other.” She said. “I mean it would be a lie if I said I haven’t thought about what our future with three kids, a dog, and a big house is like.” She said in a more joking tone.

“So you aren’t freaked that I thought that?” I asked.

“Nope.” She said, kissing me. 
I spun around and kissed her lips, “Three kids, huh?” I asked.

“Maybe. But not until we’ve graduated and you’ve put a ring on it, Horan.” She said.

“Laramie Horan? I like the sound of that. You are more than perfect, cuddles. I love you so much.” I said, kissing her nose.

“And I love you.” She said. 

The doorbell rang and we broke apart. “I’ve got it. Can you handle breakfast?” I asked.

“Sure, just go see who it is.” She said.

I wiped my hands on a towel and walked through the living room to my front door. I opened the door to see Justin standing there with a worried look on his face.

“Is she okay?” He asked.

“She’s asleep. You have three minutes to explain before I punch a hole in your face, Justin.” I said.

“We got in a fight last night over something stupid and she ran. I’ve been looking for her all night worried sick. I got back home to charge my phone and got your messages. Is she hurt? Did Ed touch her?” He asked.

“No she’s fine, just hungover. Laramie and I are making breakfast, care to join?” I asked.

“Yeah sure. And Niall I’m sorry for being a jerk yesterday, and thank you for saving my girl. I think that you and Laramie are good for each other. She’s a keeper.” He said, patting my shoulder.

“It’s all good and thanks. You better start treating Hanna right though, Laramie may kill you and I think I would help.” I said.

“I know man, she’s so good. I just feel like I’m dragging her down.” He said.

“You just need to straighten up a bit man. Now come on let’s get to the kitchen.” I said.

We walked into the kitchen and Laramie’s back was to us, her facing the stove. “So who was at the door, babe.” She said, spinning around.

“Justin.” I said.

Her eyes zeroed in on Justin and her jaw tensed her little hands balling up at her sides. She launched at Justin and threw a punch, landing straight on his nose. I heard several cracks and I believe one was from Justin’s nose.

“God dammit, Laramie.” Justin said, clutching his nose.

“Shit! Ow ow!” Laramie said, jumping up and down holding her hand. “Dammit Justin you broke my friggin hand!” She yelled, slapping his head with her other hand.

“You broke my face!” Justin yelled back.

I grabbed Laramie around the waist and set her on the kitchen counter. “You are so adorable.” I muttered. “Now let me see your hand, love.” I said.

“No you’ll hurt it.” She whimpered, clutching it closer to her body.

“Cuddles let me see your hand.” I said sternly.

“Fine.” She said holding it out.

I gingerly took it in my and looked over it. “Bend your wrist for me.” I said. She bent it a couple times and I touched it. “Did that hurt any?” I asked.

“No.” She said.

“Then your wrist is fine. Squeeze my hand as hard as you can.” I said.

She barely put and pressure on a few fingers and I sighed. “Well I think you broke a few fingers. Didn’t anyone teach you to keep your thumb on the outside of your fist, cuddles.” I chuckled.

“No.” She pouted. Her eyes were filling with tears and she started to sniffle. 
“Aww Laramie, I didn’t mean to hurt your feelings. I’m sorry.” I said, kissing her forehead.

“It’s not that you idiot my hand hurts!” She said.

“Oh right. Well we need to go to my parents then. Justin you too, you’re getting blood all over my kitchen.” I said, picking Laramie up.

“Niall my fingers are broken not my legs.” She said.

“Right. Justin can you and Laramie walk to the car without murdering each other?” I asked.

“She hit me!” He exclaimed.

“Just go to the car and I’ll get Hanna.” I said.

I walked into the guest bedroom and grabbed Hanna who was still asleep and carried her to the car. When I got outside Laramie and Justin were fighting again. 
“He’s my boyfriend. I get the front seat.” Laramie yelled.

“It was my front seat first!” He said back.

The two of them were a bunch of toddlers but Laramie was cute when she was angry.

“Laramie has front man. You have a girlfriend to hold.” I said.

Justin opened the backdoor and got in and I placed Hanna in when Laramie yelled. “Ow! Jeez that hurt.” I left Hanna for Justin to handle and ran to Laramie.

“What happened? Are you okay?” I asked.

“Yeah I just tried to open the door.” She said.

“Alright, I’ve got the door just get that cute but in my car.” I teased, opening it.

“Thank you, I think my but is quite cute.” She said.

I shut both her door and the back door and made my way to the driver’s side right when Casey ran out of her flat.

“Hey you aren’t making me drive to school alone again are you?” She yelled.

“No we’re just headed to Mum and Dad’s.” I said.

“I’m coming!” She yelled running to my car and hopping in. Everyone looked at her and she shrugged.

“What they make really good food, okay.” She said and we all laughed.

“Shut up you buffoon’s my head hurts.” Hanna muttered snuggling into Justin.

“Okay I’m pulling off everyone buckled?” I asked.

Casey and Justin looked at me and then each other and then back at me.  “He told us to put on our seatbelts. He’s changed.” Casey said in a weird voice.

“Ay he has.” Justin said.

“Whipped.” They both said at the same time laughing.

I sarcastically laughed at them, “You’re so funny.” I joked putting on my own seatbelt and backing out of my parking space.
