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.

14. Chapter 13

Laramie’s Pov:

“So why are we going to your parents?” I asked Niall as he was driving.

“Because my Dad is a doctor and my Mum is a nurse. The hospital is a few hours away and I want him to do what he can before I take you in.” Niall said, adjusting the heat in the car.

“So you mean we’re taking a really long road trip today? This should be fun.” I said.

“I think it’ll be fine, love. Just talk to me.” He said.

“What about us? There are other people in this car you know?” Casey said.

“Yeah but he loves me.” I teased.

“Yeah I love her.” Niall laughed.

“What am I sliced ham?” Justin said.

“No you are my idiot best friend who decided to piss of my girl.” Niall said as we stopped at a light.

The rest of the ride to Niall’s house was filled with playful banter mainly between Justin and Casey. When we pulled into the gated mansion of a house I gave him a soft smile. “It’s okay.” I said.

“I know, just not looking forward to it that’s all.” He mumbled stopping the car and turning it off.

Niall got out and came around to my side of the car, opening my door and hooking his arm around my waist pulling me out. 
“You know since we’ve started dating I haven’t opened a single car door.” I laughed.

“Good, a pretty princess like you shouldn’t have to.” He smiled.

“Would you to quit being sappy for five seconds.” Casey said.

“No.” Niall and I said in unison, smiling.

We walked into the house and Niall called for his parents several times before setting me on my feet and grabbing my non-injured hand.

“Maybe he’s in his study?” Casey said.

“Yeah we’ll go check, Justin are you going with us?” Niall said, turning to look at Justin.

“Yeah I mean my nose isn’t broken or anything.” He said.

“Sorry Justin.” Niall shrugged.

We walked down several halls and up a few sets of stairs before making it to his dads study. The door was solid oak and big, making an echo throughout the halls and causing me to jump. You could faintly here someone saying ‘Come in’ and Niall opened the door pulling me behind him Justin following. His father was sitting at a large oak desk with papers in his hands and glasses low on the bridge of his nose.  

“Hey Dad.” Niall said. His father looked up and a smile instantly lightened up his facial expression.

“Ah Niall and the lovely Laramie, what brings you here today?” He said standing.

“Well long story short Laramie punched Justin in the nose and broke her fingers… and Justin’s nose.” Niall said.

His father raised his eyebrows at me and I gave him a shrug and sheepish smile. “You broke his nose?” He asked.

“I think.” I said.

“No you broke it Laramie, I felt the crunch.” Justin said.

“Well if it helps any your face broke my fingers.” I said.

“It helps a little.” He said.

“Okay so why didn’t you take her to the hospital, son.” His Dad said.

“I knew you wouldn’t help. C’mon Laramie let’s just go.” He said.

“Niall he didn’t say he wouldn’t help us, he just wants to know why we decided to come here first.” I said.

“We came here because I didn’t want her to have to sit in a car for a few hours if it was something you could fix here.” He said.

“Well let me get my bag and I’ll take a look at her hand.” Mr. Horan said.

“Thank you so much Mr.Horan.” I said.

“Call me Thomas, dear.” He smiled, exiting the room.

“He’s not such a bad guy.” I said.

“Yeah right.” Justin scoffed.

“Justin just drop it.” Niall snapped.

“Drop what? What do I not know?” I asked, looking at Niall and then Justin.

“It’s nothing. We’ll talk about it later.

“I’ll hold you to that.” I mumbled.

His father walked back in to the room with a big bag and his glasses were taken off. “So Justin I’ll take a look at you first just in case the fracture was serious. Laramie take these while I do that and you can sit on the couch.” Thomas said, handing Niall two pills and a water bottle.  

“Thank you.” I said as Niall put his hand on my back and led me to the big leather couch on the other side of the couch.  
“Are you in any pain?” Niall asked.

“No Niall I’m fine.” I said sitting on the couch as he handed me the bottle and pills.

“Okay Justin, it’s definitely broken.” Thomas said.

“Really? Are you sure?” He asked sarcastically.
“I’m positive.” He said.
“Damn women.” He mumbled and we all laughed.
“Alright Laramie, you’re up.” He said.
I sat down on the top of his desk, “Can you bend your wrist?” He asked.
“Dad I already did all of this. Her arm is fine, her wrist is bending but she can’t squeeze her fingers mostly her middle and her ring finger.” Niall said.
“Alright, let me look at those then.” Thomas said, clearly shocked at Niall’s knowledge.
He checked out my fingers and Niall fidgeted beside the desk. “Well you’re right. It’s those two fingers. They just need to be wrapped and placed in a finger splint.” Thomas said. “She should also take two of these before she goes to bed.” He said handing me a bottle of pills.
“Thank you again Thomas.” I said.
“It was no trouble at all Laramie. Niall you take care of her.” He said.
“You don’t need to worry about that, Dad.” He spat. “Unlike some guys I’d rather not hurt the most important thing in my life.” He said.
“Niall.” His father said.
“Are you done? Does she need anything else?” Niall asked grabbing my good hand.
“No, she’s free to go.” Thomas said.
“Then we’re leaving.” Niall said pulling me out of the study.
I chose not to question his actions and let him pull me through the large halls and into a sitting room.
“I’m leaving. If you’re coming with me then I suggest you get in the car before I pull off.” He said.

"Do you feel better baby?" Niall asked after we dropped Justin and Hanna off at Justin’s house and Casey stayed with her parents.  
"Yeah a little bit, the pain medication helped." I said leaning my head against the window.  
"Will you take me home now?" I asked
"Yes cuddles, I will" he said.  When we got to my house Michele was in the front yard with the girls.  
"Where have you been?  What happened to your hand?"  She said all together really fast.  
"I got held up and I'm ok don't worry.  Why are you guys outside in this heat?"  I asked, wondering.
"The girls wanted to watch the smoke." She said pointing behind us to the sky.
"Oh my gosh." I said.  To the east of our house the sky was full of smoke.  
"Hey Niall isn't your house over in that direction?"  I asked.  We looked at each other and I think it hit us at the same time.
"The stove" we screamed together running back to his car.  
"I will be back later!" I screamed 
"Well ok." I heard Michele say.
The closer we got to Niall’s house the more it looked like it was his.  I started to cry because I knew it was my fault.  
"Niall I'm so so sorry" I said sobbing into my hands as we pulled up to... Well what used to be his house?  There were two fire trucks parked out front.   
Niall never said anything to me; he just got out of the car and started screaming.  He was pissed and it was my fault.  I cried for an hour it felt like before he finally got back in the car.
"I'm sorry Niall" I whispered not looking up at him “You can stay with me if you want Niall.  Michele won't mind I promise."  I said finally looking up.  He was staring at me.  He looked like he had cried a bit but surprisingly calm.
"It's ok Laramie" he cooed rubbing circles on my back.  I unbuckled myself and straddled him in the front seat, putting my face in the crook of his neck.  
"I'm sorry Ni.  It's all my fault" I said.
"It's both of our faults Laramie.  It's ok and I would love to stay with you" He said kissing my cheek.  Well that didn't make me feel any better.  I went back over to my seat and buckled up.  Niall didn't say anything the whole drive home and I knew he was holding something from me.  When we got back to my house he said he needed to make a few calls so I went inside and told Michele about the situation.  She agreed he could stay as long as he slept in the guest room.  It was empty now seeing as the little girls left while I was gone.  She promised them that I would FaceTime them when I got the chance.  This had to be the crappiest day ever.
I went up to my room and plopped myself down on my bed, my face in the pillow.  I thought I was by myself until I felt the bed move and arms go round my waist.  
"Ni I'm so so sorry" I said into the pillow.
"Hmmm?" He mumbled.  I turned my head to the side to see his eyes closed.  
"I said I'm so sorry Ni" I said again.
"It's ok Laramie, it wasn't your fault." He said leaning over and kissing my nose.  
"So are you going to get another apartment?" I asked.
"Well yeah but for now I'm just gonna stay here with you." he smiled kissing my nose again.
"How long do you think you will be staying with me?" I asked brushing a strand of his hair away that fell onto his forehead.
"Probably a week." he said closing his eyes again.  I could tell something has really pissed him off.  
"You can sleep in the spare bed room." I said turning away from him.  It bothered me that he wasn't telling me what was wrong.  I mean I didn't mean to do it, he shouldn't be mad.  I mean, I know, his house burnt down, but in my defense he forgot too.  
"What's wrong with you?" He asked all of the sudden.  He put his hand on my shoulder and flipped me back over to look at him.
"I just need some time alone.  Now if you will please excuse me." I said pointing toward the door.  He looked hurt and even more pissed than before.
"Fine." he said getting up and walking out before slamming my door.  
I turned back over and was about to start crying before my phone went off.
"Hello?" I asked
"Hay Laramie" Casey said
"I'm so so sorry Casey please forgive me" I said, tears falling down my face.
"Laramie its ok, calm down.  Goodness!  I was getting ready for a new place anyways!"  She said reassuringly.
"Oh ok good." I said
"But I was calling to see if maybe you wanted to go out with me tonight?  Clubbing maybe, then some fast food?" She asked
"Oh my gosh yes please!  That sounds amazing!"  I said sitting up and wiping my eyes.
"I thought it would, I will pick you up in an hour.  And by the way wear something sexy." she added.  
"Will do captain" I said.
  When she hung up I went and took a quick shower and let my curls take over.  I picked out a black cutout dress and some black matching heels with gold on the bottom and then some matching earrings.  I wore my makeup dark. ( ) I walked out my room door and walked down the stairs as quiet as I could, I didn't want Niall to hear me leave.  
"Hey Michele, Casey and I are going out and I promise I will be back tonight." I whispered.
"Ok....but your still in trouble so be back by 10.  And why are you whispering?"  She asked.  
"I didn't want Niall to hear". I whispered again.
"Well ok then.  I understand though, he probably wouldn't want you going out looking like that by yourself.  He seems like the jealous type." She said 
"Yeah he is well I'm gonna go now" I said walking over to the door.  
"Well I'm just saying, you look hot!" she screamed the last part.
"I'm gonna kill you." But before I could get to her I heard a door upstairs open and close. 
"Holy crap!" I said running to the front door and swinging it open.  I ran to Casey's car at the end of the sidewalk as fast as I could and when I looked back after I got in the car Niall was standing in the doorway staring after us.  He. Looked. Pissed.  
"Oh crap Casey, Niall looks mad." I said 
"Ehh he'll get over it" she said.  Right after she turned the radio on my phone rang.  
"Casey it’s him!" I screamed 
"Answer it then.  Act mysterious." She winked turning the volume down on the radio.  
"Ok I will try." I said hitting the accept button.
"Hello?" I asked.
"Where are you?" He asked with anger in his voice.  
"I don't know" I said.  I then put it on speaker and signaled for Casey to be quiet.
"Laramie tell me, I'm coming to get you."  He said
"No I don't think she will" Casey said.  Crap.
"Shut up Casey and tell me where you are going!" His voice was getting louder.
"Nope." and with that she grabbed my phone and ended the call.
"Casey!  I'm going to be in so much trouble!"  I said.
"Yeah, maybe." She said calmly.  I grabbed my phone back and called Michele.
"Where is Niall?"  I asked 
"He left right after you did" she laughed 
"Why did you do that?" I asked
"I knew he wouldn't like it so I did what had to be done" she said giggling.  I hung up on her.  I then got a text, I looked down and it was from Niall.
 ‘Let the games begin.  I will find you. ~ Niall’
