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.

19. Chapter 16 - Part 3


I chose some items from the delicates drawer first and then a pair of purple skinny jeans with a white top. The top had the Eiffel tower on it and a little black bow that matched the bows on my sandals.

My hair was still wet but it would but I knew it would dry by the time we got back to my place so I let it be.

Niall escorted me to his car and I kissed his cheek before getting in. He quickly kissed my lips before running around to his side of the car and starting it up, backing out of the driveway.

“What’s Casey doing for dinner?” I asked.

“I think Michele invited her over as well, not sure though.” He said as he continued driving.

“You look very nice, Laramie.” He smiled as we pulled up to a stop sign.

“Thank you, Niall. You aren’t looking to bad yourself.” I said. “Now are you going to sing for me or what?” I asked.

We sang the whole car ride which was really only ten minutes and we laughed all the way up to my front door.

“You were so off key it was horrific.” I said letting out a laugh and grabbing his hand.

“No way, my singing was ace. Your singing was awful!” He said as I opened the front door.

We walked back to the kitchen laughing and he kissed my cheek as we entered. “Michele we’re home!” I yelled before attaching my lips to Niall’s and letting out a giggle.

“I can see that. Guy’s you might want to stop sucking each other’s faces for like five minutes.” She said.

“Why, you have a problem with PDA.” I teased, spinning on my heel. 
“Yeah it’s gross watching your baby sister suck face.” My mouth fell open as I saw my brother Harry and his best friend Louis sitting at the kitchen table.

“Holy crap, Harry!” I shouted, dropping Niall’s hand and running over to my big brother as he stood. I wrapped him in a hug and squeezed him not realizing how much I really missed him.

“Whoa there killer, calm down.” He said, patting my back.

I held on tighter and tears formed in my eyes. I let out a sniffle and he kissed the top of my head, smoothing down my damp hair.

“I missed you so much.” I said into his shirt. I pulled back and pointed at Louis, “And you get your ass over here Tomlinson before I personally beat it.” I said.

Louis joined the hug and we laughed for a few minutes before I finally let them go. Harry had gotten broader and his face looked more mature. I was sure that he grew a few inches and dropped a few pounds that were obviously replaced by muscle.

“So are you going to introduce us to the boy are what?” Harry teased, pinching my cheek.

“The boy is Niall.” I said walking over to him and kissing his cheek, “And he is my boyfriend. Niall this is my oldest and only brother Harry, Harry this is my favorite and only boyfriend Niall.” I joked.

“Am I sliced turkey or what?” Louis said.

“Niall this is Louis, the idiot best friend who ruined all of my sleepovers. But I still love him like a brother.” I said.

“Hi, it’s nice to meet both of you. Laramie never mentioned any brother’s.” Niall said, shaking both Louis and Harry’s hand.

“Really? That’s hurtful jelly bean.” Harry teased and my cheeks flamed.

“Jelly bean?” Niall asked.

“When she was younger Louis and I threw jelly beans at her in church and we just started calling her that. Also one of her favorite types of candy.” Harry said.

“I thought we weren’t going to ever talk about that again and I wasn’t going to tell anybody you wear girl’s tights around the house.” I said trough gritted teeth.

“But they’re comfy!” He defended himself.

“Whatever, you’re weird. Now Harry, Louis, and Niall can go hang out in the dining room whilst you help me finish up dinner.” Michele said. “And where is Casey?” She asked.

“I just got a text; she says she’s on her way.” Niall said.

“Great!” Michele said, “Now off you go boys.” She said, shoeing them out.

“Love you Niall!” I shouted out blowing him a kiss.

“I love you too Jelly bean.” He teased.

I glared at him and he winked while Harry and Louis laughed. Michele grabbed my good hand and pulled me to the stove.

“Stir that sauce for me okay? It shouldn’t be too hard to do, now please don’t burn yourself.” She said.

“I won’t.” I said.

Twenty minutes later, dinner was done and set at the table along with all of the people. Well except for Casey. The doorbell rang as soon as Michele sat down and I stood to answer it.

“Its fine, I’ve got it. Must be Casey.” Michele said and I sat back down.

A few moments later and a winded Casey walked in sitting down on my left and across from Harry.

“I’m so sorry I’m late Michele and that I’m sweaty. Practice ran a bit long.” She said before looking at me. “And where were you Missy? We needed you there too you know.” She teased and then looked at Niall.

“Oh I know where you were. You idiot quit keeping one of my most valued players off the field, I don’t care if she’s your girlfriend.” Casey scolded her brother.

“Sorry we were busy.” He said.

“I don’t even want to know I’m just glad I was out of the house.” She said.

My face burned and Niall let out laugh, “We were sleeping you idiot. If you hadn’t bailed on lunch you would know that Laramie had a terrible day and not enough sleep last night so I let her crash upstairs.” He lied smoothly.

“Okay.” She said unconvinced. “Who are they?” She asked.

“That is my brother Harry and his best friend Louis.” I said, pointing to each.

“I didn’t know you had a brother! Hi I’m Casey, L’s newest best friend.” She said.

“Louis.” Louis said, giving her a wave.

“Hi, I’m Harry.” Harry said, giving her a smile with his dimples on full display.

“Gross Harry, not at the table!” I said. “And not with my best friend.”

“I was just being nice you dork! Besides what kind of team are you on?” He asked me.

“Football.” I said.

Louis and Harry looked at eachother with big smiles before bursting into laughter, “Alright let it out come on.” I said. 
“You, playing football?” Louis sputtered.

“That’s rich.” Harry laughed.

“I know, I know.” I said.

“Okay how many people have you honestly killed?” Louis asked and Casey laughed.

“None surprisingly. Though I did break Niall’s nose the first day I knew him. Sorry ‘bout that babe.” I said, patting his knee.

“You broke his nose? Smooth kid.” Harry said. 
“Not the only nose she’s busted.” Niall laughed.

“Oh yeah, I forgot about when she broke Justin’s.” Casey said.

“Oh no not this.” I said, burying my face in my hands.

“Who is Justin?” Louis asked.

“And why did you break his nose?” Harry mirrored.

“Niall.” I said.

“Well your sister used to have this friend Hanna who dates my best friend Justin. Well Hanna was in trouble and Laramie thought it was because of Justin so when she saw him she decked him in the face. She broke his nose and a few of her fingers in the process.” Niall explained.

“You did that?” Harry asked.

“Yes and I won’t ever punch someone again because it hurts.” I said.

“Well let’s eat before the food get’s cold.” Michele said.

We finished dinner and I was walking Niall out the door and saying goodbye when he kissed me.

“I love you and I had a lovely time tonight.” He said.

“I love you too, Niall. I wish you could stay though.” I said, hugging him.

“Me too.” He said, kissing my forehead.

“See you tomorrow?” I asked.

“Yeah. And I won’t forget the pill either.” He smiled, kissing my nose.

“Great. Goodbye.” I said as he walked off.

“Goodbye.” He waved.

Niall’s Pov: 

I waited an hour and then knocked on Laramie’s door. Michele opened it with a smile, “She’s just lain down. Go on up but you know the rules door open.” She said. 

“Thanks Michel.” I said, kissing her cheek.

I walked up the stairs quietly and walked to Laramie’s room pushing the door open gently. I took off my shoes and pants quietly before making my way to her bed and laying beside her.

“Cuddles?” I whispered.

“Niall?” She asked, tears on her cheeks.

“Oh cuddles what’s wrong?” I asked, wrapping her close to me.

“I just had a dream and you were hit by a car.” She said.

“You had a dream? Michele said you just lay down.” I said, stroking her back.

“I came up as soon as you left and lay down.” She sniffed.

“I’m not going anywhere, Laramie.” I said.

After she calmed down I kissed her lips and then her cheek, “I love you Laramie Styles.” I whispered, “And it would be an honor if you would go to prom with me.” I said. “So will you?” 
She smiled and kissed me again “It’s a date, Horan.”  She said.

“It’s a date.”
