Flummoxed Enchantment

The Sequel to 'Resplendent Enchantment'.


16. Niall's POV

"... Niall, I love you and I always have."  Alex meant every word she had just blurted out and I knew exactly what I wanted to say to her, 'I love you too, cliche but I'll love you more than you'll ever know.' But I couldn't. I didn't. 
"Alex.. I-I just, I.. no." I hung up on her. I hung up on us. I hung up on our friendship. 

I sat up from the lounge room couch I was dug into and went toward the kitchen. I need a drink. I could feel liquid all over me, once I touched my face, I realized I was crying. I had been crying long enough for my tears to have already hit my bare chest and start running down my stomach. I brought out a glass but realized I didn't need it. I took the whole bottle and sat at the dining room table, crying into my hands. 
"Babe..?" Damn. I forgot Sarah was here. "Babe.. are you okay?" I felt her coming closer. "Are you drinking? Babe, what's wrong?" She placed a hand on my back. Her touch sent shivers down my spine. 
"I'm fine." 
"What happened?" She crouched next to me, trying to get a glimpse of my face. 
"It's just.. family." I can't believe this. I have to lie to her. 
"Aw, Nialler!" She stood up and hugged me. I hugged back, crying harder. Nialler. Alex gave me that nick name when we were very young. 
Can you please leave? 
This isn't a break up. 
I just have feelings for another girl. 
Please, leave. 
All things I wanted to say to her but couldn't. Sarah was perfect. We had so much in common plus she was beautiful. Just, stunning. 
"What is it, Niall?" 
"Oh.." I came back to reality. "I just want you to go back to sleep, it's getting late. I'll be fine." I pulled a fake smile. I knew she would buy it. Anyone and everyone would buy my fake smile.. except Alex. She could read me so easily. Sarah walked back toward my bedroom, blowing me a kiss mouthing, 'goodnight'.

I sculled down some whiskey and placed my elbow on the table, bending my arm up, allowing my hand to support my head. Why did I hang up on her? After almost 3 hours of crying, deeps thoughts and intoxicating myself with half bottle of whiskey which was 60% alcohol, I walked into the lounge room to get some rest. Not before checking my phone. I was hoping for missed calls or texts from her, giving me a sign that it's okay for me to contact her. Nothing. I care about her and for her so much. And Sarah, honestly, not so much. Don't get me wrong Sarah is a stunner, she's super cute, nice and very intelligent but I just don't see me with her. I was talking to Louis and Liam when I first got back from Ireland and they told me that I didn't love Sarah. They told me that she was a distraction from Alex, that she was just a replacement for Alex. I never believed anything they said.. until now. 
I need to man up. I wiped my tears away from my face and stood up, releasing a long and heavy breath. I slowly made my way upstairs and to my bedroom. Slowly creeping in, I watch Sarah. This was the first girl I had ever been able to call my princess. I sat between the gap of her stomach and the end of the bed and stroked her hair, curling it between my fingers. I placed one last kiss on her forehead, waking her up. She was a somewhat light sleeper. 
"Are you okay, Niall? What's going on?" She touched my face, feeling that I was still crying. "You're still upset? Niall, talk to me. What can I do to help?" She quickly sat up. We could barely see each other because of the lack of lighting in the room. I picked up her hand and she squeezed my hand tight. I caressed her knuckles with my thumb and places a kiss upon her hand. 
"Sarah. I'm sorry." 
"For what?" 
"I know it's late.. but I just.. can't.." 
"Can't what?" 
"Put up with this. Emotions." 
"Did I do something wrong?" Her grip on my hand was loosened. 
"You did nothing wrong." I shook my head slightly. "Sarah. I need to get this over with." 
"I can't.. I can't be with you right now." 
"Are you breaking up with me, Niall." There was just enough light for me to see her face drop. She looked devastated. 
"I'm sorry. I never meant to fall so bad, and I didn't realize you would either." 
"It's okay.. but can I ask.. w- why?" 
"I'm not going to lie to you, Sarah. It's another person." 
"It isn't like that!" 
"You were cheating on me?" She ripped her hand away for mine and escalated off of the bed. 
"It was nothing like that! We may have kissed but.." 
"If you two kissed, how is it nothing like that?" 
"Sarah it's a long story!" 
"I have time.." 
"I- I.." 
"Who is she? At least, tell me who she is.." 
"Alex." I mumbled. 
"Wow, Niall. You know what, just... bye." And with that she fled downstairs and out of my front door before I could stop her. 

Niall, how much more stupid could you possibly get?
