Maybe

(Niall and Zayn)
When bestfriends Simran & Mollie meet two boys on the tube, will something more become of it? Or will heartbreak be the only thing left?

Maybe.

Will their past change the future? Will their future affect the present?

Maybe.

92. Promises, Promises

***Mollie's POV***

 

"Morning, Angel." The sound of Niall's sleepy voice causes irritation and longing to spread through me at the same time. I try my best to keep contained as he closes the door to our room and I meet his eyes. He looked rough. He clears his throat awkwardly as I take in his appearance. Signs of stubble were showing across his jaw, his eyes were dragged down by heavy bags, his hair was ruffled and matted on one side and his clothes were a crumpled mess.

"I slept in the car last night," He explains, sensing me looking at him. I just nod simply, looking down at Scarlett's wriggling body in the cot beside my bed. I reach my hand out to her, running my finger up and down the smooth skin of her small arm.

"Zayn was here earlier," I say and he looks taken aback for a moment before nodding and taking a seat on the chair on the other side of Scarlett's cot. 

"He told me." I add quietly, watching as he takes in Scarlett.

"Told you what?" Niall asks, lifting his eyes to meet mine.

"What happened." 

"Oh," The room is filled with an uncomfortable silence until Scarlett begins to cry. I reach out to her but Niall nudges my hands away before I can touch her.

"I'll do it." He assures me and I watch intently as he bends down to scoop her up.

"Hey, baby girl." He cooes with a huge smile, pressing his lips to her nose. She stops crying almost immediately and stares up at him in complete awe with her eyes wide and bright. She reaches out with her tiny fist to touch his nose, causing him to chuckle.

"Tell me what happened, Niall." I say sternly, continuing to look at Scarlett in her father's arms.

"She... She threatened you, Mollie. She said she'd kill you... and Scarlett too. I didn't know what was really happening but... But I knew I couldn't put you both in danger like that. I know... I know it sounds ridiculous... That I couldn't defend myself and just gave in but... I honestly thought she would do something. Her brother got involved too and it just turned in to one big mess. It only lasted about an hour, that was all I promised. When I left, she followed after me and it was only then that I realised there were cameras. I swear, Angel, I would never do something like that to you and... and if I ever did I would make sure I wouldn't let you find out like you did." He draws in a deep breath and looks down at Scarlett snuggled against his broad chest.

"Why didn't you tell me, then?" I ask, eyeing him with a sad expression.

"We talked plenty of times before you got back." I remind him and he nods, sadly.

"I know, I just... Didn't want to worry you. And you were heavily pregnant too," He adds, smiling softly down at Scarlett briefly.

"I promise, Angel, I'll never do anything like that again. Please, forgive me?" He looks at me, eyes full of hope and Scarlett begins to squirm again; crying out for attention. He lifts her up in the air, his large hands underneath her small arms and blows on her stomach. She stares down at him with wide eyes as he brings her to his chest again; tears staining her cheeks. I draw in a deep breath and momentarily close my eyes before slowly exhaling.

"Promise?" I ask, looking at him with a small smile.

"Promise," He counters with a grin, bending down to plant a kiss on my lips.
