Emma's POV:

We walked onto the field, and all I could think about was how cold it was. All I was wearing a light sweater that I had grabbed before Niall pushed me out the door.

"Are you cold Princess?"  said Niall as he looked over his shoulder at me. "A little" I said, kind of shy as I saw some other guys starting to run over to me and Niall.

"Hey, What up Niall!? Yelled a boy with curly brown hair. "Hey Haz!" yelled Niall. They did some kind of complicated hand thing, that from what I could see was pretty cool.

"Whose this?" said another boy that also ran up to greet Niall. He also had brown hair, but unlike the first boy his was buzzed short.

"Oh this is Emma" said Niall as he put his arm around my neck. "Hi" I said with the biggest smile on my face. I was determined to make these guys except me, I didn't want to make Niall feel weird about me there.

There was a couple of seconds of awkward silence after she said anything, everyone just stared at her. Two other guys had joined the group of people just staring.

"She's from New York" said Niall with a little laugh, "Sorry Emma, these guys aren't the best at hiding what their thinking".

"Oh, ha it's fine" I said blushing. I was pretty sure the boy with the striped shirt was checking me out, and I was starting to feel very uncomfortable. I started hiding behind Niall, almost like he was acting as my bodyguard shielding me from everything but him.

"Hey darling, we're going to go start practice now,  you can sit on the bleachers over their and watch, if you'd like" said Niall quietly, from all the other boys still standing around.

"Okay" I said, turning around to go to the bleachers, when suddenly something pinched my butt.

I turned around quickly, anger spreading all over me, my face turning bright red.

It was the boy with the striped shirt, the one that I thought was checking me out. "What are you doing!" I said trying not to make to much of a scene and getting Niall's attention.

"Hey babe" he said with a smirk. "I like you" he said. I felt sick, I opened my mouth but nothing came out. "I'm Louie by the way, Louie Tomlinson" He said as he turned around and ran back to the other guys dribbling around the ball.

I shut my eyes and walked to the bleachers. Everything starts flooding back to me about my last relationship in New York.

"Don't worry Emma, you're safe here, you have Niall" I kept telling myself, as I put on a fake smile and watched Niall's practice.
