Mummy, Where's Daddy?

Niall and I were just fine, meeting each other when I was 15 and he was 19. We fell in love, and I was completely smitten with him. But after one drunken night, four years after we met, six months dating, I fell pregnant. Niall walked out when he found out, couldn't cope with the pressure of being a dad at 23. Only 19, I was confused, hurt and upset. When I was at the 8-months mark, I pulled myself together and got on with life. Now Alexander is 3, and he's starting to ask questions. Will his daddy be back?

1. Prologue

Alexander, or 'Alex' as everyone calls him, sat on the floor, frowning in concentration as he attempted to build a car out of Lego. "Mummy?" he calls, snapping me out of my trance, "Help me," he demanded, handing me a red Lego block. Crossing my arms, I shook my head, "Say please," I explained, smiling softly. He often forgets to say please and thank you, and I keep reminding him. "Please mummy, help me," Alex asks and I nod, taking the Lego block he had in his hand. "Thank you," he laughed sweetly, and I felt a knife being stabbed in my heart. Alex's laugh reminded me strongly of his father. Who is his father? You might ask, and his father is Niall Horan, from One Direction.
