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.

16. Chapter 15

Nothing really interesting happened throughout the next week.  We had a football tournament and we won every game but one.  Niall payed off his debt but had to go get the money from his parents and he didn't enjoy that at all.  He made me come with him so he wouldn't punch any one because apparently I 'calm him down'.  It was weird.  He had his hand on my butt the whole time and apparently that helped I didn't question it though.  'What Niall wants, he gets' as he would say so I didn't want to make him mad.

As we were setting in one of the few classes we had together, we started talking about him getting a new apartment.

"Well I was planning to go house shopping on Saturday, which is tomorrow, so would up like to come?"  He asked.

"Yes I would love to." I said

"But we all know you’re going to miss sleeping beside me." I said flailing my arm in the air smiling "But I could care less."

"Oh really missy.  You could care less?  Then why are you always moaning my name in your sleep?  Hmmmm?"  He asked squinting his eyes at me, trying not to smile.

"I don't know, buy why are you always staring at me in my sleep?" I said repeating his action.

"Because your beautiful cuddles." he said intertwining our fingers and I blushed and looked away.

"Yes I will go with you." I said never looking back.

"Good," he said squeezing my hand "I like it when you blush by the way.  You can't control it."

The bell rang about ten minutes later and that told us it was time for lunch.

"Where are Justin and Hanna?"  I finally asked about five minutes into lunch.

"I don't know but I do know Justin was here today.  Have you seen Hanna?" He asked looking up from his pizza.

 "Um yea we had second period together.  She was acting strange." I said

"Hmm well there probably just off making out in a closet somewhere." he said giggling.

"Maybe." I said taking a drink of my orange juice.  And that's when we heard the conversation.

I think the girl was in my grade.  Her name was Adrianna I believe.

"Did you hear about Hanna and that senior?" She asked her friend.

"Yes!  Can you believe that happened!  She was such a good girl not two months ago!" The other girl said.  I looked over at Niall to see if he had heard and apparently he had because he was already staring at me.

"Hey um Adrianna?" I asked.

"Oh hi Laramie, how are you?" She asked with a small smile.

"I'm good.  How are you?" I asked to be polite.

"I'm good." she said.

"Good well I was wondering what happened to Hanna?" I asked

"You haven't heard?" She asked rushing over and setting in the seat next to me grabbing my arm.

"Um no?" I said looking over at Niall, who was trying to hold in a laugh.

"I'm so sorry Laramie!  She is your best friend I'm sorry for having to be the one to tell you! " She said dramatically hugging my arm.

"Um we aren’t really best friends anymore.  But anyways what happened?" I asked.

"Oh well Justin and her got busted for drugs!" She sniffed.  I snapped my head to look over at Niall and he wasn't trying to laugh anymore, he actually looked scared.

"Oh my gosh."  Is all I could say.

"I know right!  Well I better get back to my friends.  It was good talking to you" she said walking off.

Nialls POV:

"Oh well Justin and her got busted for drugs!" The girl said.  Oh shit this isn't good.  What if they trace it back to me?  What if they think Laramie is involved.  Oh no not my Laramie.  Not Laramie.

"Hey Laramie?" I asked after the girl walked away.

"Yeah." she said looking up at me, fear obviously on her face.

"Oh Laramie it’s ok." I said pulling her onto my lap and into a hug.

"I'm going to leave school after lunch ok?" I said but didn't respond.  "And I’ll be home tonight ok.  It may be late but I will be home" I said running my fingers through her hair.

"Ok." She said getting out of my lap.  That's all I get?  An ok?

"It's going to be ok Laramie" I said getting up and kissing her on the forehead.  "I'll talk to you later love" and with that I walked out of the school building.

Laramies POV:

"Michele I just worry sometimes ya know?" I said turning the fried chicken over in the pan.

"Laramie I think you love him and I think he loves you to, so you have a right to worry." She said putting her hand on my knee.  I was setting up on the counter.

"I guess." I shrugged.  "How about we watch a movie with our supper tonight?" I asked

"Yea that sounds good.  You choose!" She said

"21 JUMP STREET!" I screamed jumping off the counter to go find the DVD.  "Turn the chicken for me please" I said popping my head back in.


Michele and I watched the movie and almost fell asleep on the couch but somehow I found the strength to get up to my bed room.  About 1 in the morning I was woken up though.

"Niall?" I asked rubbing my eyes.  Somebody was straddling me, and rubbing my sides.

"Hmmm" was the only answer I got.  I was starting to freak out and was ready to scream until a pair of lips hit mine.  I know these, there definitely Niall’s.

"Are you ok Niall?" I asked breaking away from the kiss.

"Yes, I'm perfect." He said leaning down and lightly sucking on my neck.

"Niall you smell like weed." I said, remembering the smell from Hanna.

"Yea, I went to go get all of Justin's drugs so when the police go to check his house out they wouldn't find anything and I thought I would go ahead and use some." He said giggling and licking my collar bone.

"Oh my gosh Niall your high?"  I silently screamed.

"Yeaaaaaa I knew you wouldn't care since you didn't care about the drugs in the house the other day." He said leaning down and pulling me into a hug.

"Niall I didn't care, they were in your house, but I don't want you using them around me.  Do you hear me?" I said pushing him off and onto the floor.

"Ouch! What was that for?" He whined

"You are high and around me, Niall! I already told you once not to do this around me.  Leave, right now.  Don't come back until tomorrow.  Ok?" I said grabbing his collar and dragging him to my door.

"Why?" he screamed.  Crap now Michele will be coming.

"Niall I love you so so much, but I don't like you doing drugs at all.  What if you get in trouble and sent away?  I will never see you again Ni.  And I love you too much for that.  Now please leave and think about what you did.” I said putting my hands on my hips.

"Lara." I cut his words off by slamming the door in his face.

"Lara...Laramie". Michele screamed from the top of the stairs.

"Nothing happened Michele just go back to bed." I said looking threw a crack in the curtains at Niall.  He was crying, great. I couldn't give in so I just walked back up the stairs to my room.


I woke up the next dreading the day.  Niall was supposed to be here in an hour.  Or as he said yesterday we were supposed to leave at that time.  But no telling what will happen now.

I was putting on my clothes after my shower when Michele walked into my room and sat on my bed.

"So?" She said. “Spill.”

"Fine.  Niall came in high as a kite last night and I made him leave.  There, that's what happened.  I need to finish getting ready.  Goodbye" I said walking into my bathroom.

"Well ok goodbye." She said leaving.

Niall surprisingly turned up on time.  I opened the door up slowly and had to hold myself back from kissing him.  He looked so good.  He had on a blue snap back, a tight white shirt and some weird green jeans on.  But it looked good.  He looked sad though.

"Hi Ni." I said having to look down so he wouldn't notice my blushing.

"Hey." He said turning around and walking toward his car.

"Bye Michele." I screamed into the house.

The ride to the first house was full of awkward silence, and so was the look through of it. He only asked me if I liked it. I decided to break the silence on the way to the second house.

"You look good in that outfit." I said.

"Thanks." He said with a small smile.

"If you don't mind me asking, what color are your jeans?" I asked giggling.

"They are turquoise." He said smiling again.  But that was the end of it; there was definitely tension between us and a lot of it.

After we walked through the second house he decided he really liked it so he went to go sign some papers and I went back to the car. On the way home he turned the radio on and 15 by Taylor Swift came on.

'Cause when you’re fifteen and somebody tells you they love you
you're going believe them’

I looked over at Niall out of the corner of my eye and thought I saw a tear go down his cheek.  Then blow me one last kiss came on.

‘I think this might be it for us
Blow me one last kiss
You think I'm just too serious
I think you're full of shit
My head is spinning, so
Blow me one last kiss
Just when it can't get worse
I've had a shit day
You've had a shit day
We've had a shit day
I think that life's too short for this
Want back my ignorance and bliss
I think I've had enough of this
Blow me one last kiss’

Is the radio trying to tell me something?  I looked over at Niall again and now I know I saw tears.  That's when scream by usher came on.

‘I see you over there, so hypnotic
Thinking 'bout what I do to that body
I get you like ooh baby baby
Ooh baby baby, ah-ooh baby baby ooh baby baby
Got no drink in my hand
But I'm wasted
Getting drunk of the thought of you naked
I get you like ooh baby baby
Ooh baby baby, ah-ooh baby baby ooh baby baby’

And with that I needed Niall.

"Hey Niall can you pull over please?" I asked.

"Yeah.” He said pulling the car off to the side.  “What's wrong Laramie?" The moment he put the car in park I was over to his side, straddling his lap my hands on his waist.

"Lara" I cut him off with my lips.

Nialls POV:

Lara" I couldn't even finish her name before her lips were pressed against mine.  It was a hard needy kiss.  I kissed her back the exact same way.  I needed her.  I always did.

"Ni" she moaned as I began kissing her back.  I placed my hands on her bum and pushed her up further on my lap.  She moaned again as I squeezed it.

“Laramie?” I questioned when she moved her lips from mine to trail down my jaw and to my neck.

“Hmm?” She hummed.

“Laramie I have to ask you a question, could you pause the make out for a moment.” I laughed as she let out a whine and dropped her forehead to my chest.

“Go on, ask away.” She said.

“Will you go out with me tomorrow?” I asked.

She lifted her head and smiled, showing of her pearly whites. “Of course I will.” She said, softly bringing her hand to play with the hair on the nape of my neck. She softly kissed my lips and then pulled back resting her forehead against mine. At the same moment both of our stomach’s gurgled and we let out a few laughs.

“I guess it’s time to feed the monster’s huh?” I asked, poking her stomach.

“Guess so. Do you want to go out or do you want to cook something?” she asked, skimming her nose along my jaw line.

“I think I prefer you over dinner.” I breathed out and kissed her cheek. “But maybe Mcdonald’s doesn’t sound so bad either. How about both?” I winked at her and she laughed.

“You are impossible.” She rolled her eyes and slid over to her seat. “To Mickey’s we go.” She said, bringing her arm in the air and pointing at the windshield.

“Freak.” I laughed.

“Hey!” She pouted.

“But cuddles, you’re my cute little freak.” I said, bumping my finger under her chin.

“For Narnia!” I yelled.

“And I’m the freak.” She mumbled.

***** *****

When we got to Mcdonald’s we decided to go in and sit for a while that way the unresolved sexual tension in the car would have vanished. I made her sit while I retrieved the food and as I walked to our table I saw a guy standing there and Laramie with a bored look on her face and her head in her hands. When she saw me she smiled and mouthed ‘finally’.

“Hey babe, this is Tim. Tim is in college.” She said.

“Really?” I said.

When Tim turned around I all but dropped the tray.

“Tim Kilduff? Holy crap man is that you?” I asked setting the tray down.

Tim and I were great friends when I became a freshman. He was a grade above me so he was like a mentor and an older brother at times. We had lots of fun together and were often always getting in trouble.

“Niall Horan! Man is it good to see that pretty boy face of yours!” He joked pinching my cheek.

“Always the charmer.” I said swatting his hand away. “What are you doing back here?” I asked.

“Well I’m on break and I thought I would come visit. My mum hasn’t seen me in ages and she cries about it all the time.” He rolled his eyes.

“Be nice to Kimmy, she’s great.” I warned.

“Hello there confused girlfriend who would like her chicken nuggets and an introduction at anytime now.” Laramie said waving her hand.

“Oh, Tim this is my girl Laramie. Cuddles this is Tim, one of my best mates.” Niall said.

“One of your best mates? I am the best mate, man.” He said.  

“Whatever old man. Now I have to feed my girlfriend before she throws a tantrum, can’t have her doing that.” I teased.

“Hey that’s not fair. You get cranky when you want food too.” She pouted crossing her arms.

“Love you.” I said.

“Whatever, I love you too. Now feed me!” She whined sticking her hands out.

“She’s a keeper.” Tim laughed.

“I know.” I smiled at her lovingly while handing her the box of nuggets.

“Oh this is just mushy mate, you’ve gone soft.” He teased.

“I have and it’s the best thing that I’ve ever done. I wouldn’t change her for the world.” I said.

“I’m going to vom.” Tim groaned.

“You’ll know one day Tim, you’ll find the right girl.” I said, patting his back.

“Yeah whatever. Look mate I have to go, but it was nice seeing you. Love you mate.” He said, patting my bag and giving me a side hug.

“Bye man, love you too.” I said.

“I ship that so hard.” Laramie said.

“Ship what? What does that mean?” I asked sitting down and eating a fry.

“I think you two have a cute bromance. Nim? Nope, you’re Tiall. That’s your ship name.” She clapped.

“Stop speaking nerd language and eat your nuggets.” I laughed.

“Fine.” She said.

** ** **

When we got back to Laramie’s house we took turns in the shower and then began to prepare for bed. We lay down and she flicked of her lamp before lying her head on my chest and yawning.

“I love you with all my heart.” I said.

“I love you more, infinity times twelve.” She said.

“Not possible. Not at all.” I smiled to myself.

My life was finally back on track and perfect and I would be damned if I let anything change.
