Gotta Be You


I glance up at him, and sure enough he has tears trickling down his face. I reach up and wipe them away with my thumb.

“I thought I had lost you. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I had.” He says it slightly louder now. “I was terrified. I shouldn’t have left you. I should have been by you that whole time.” He shakes his head, tears flowing steadily now.


8. Night Out

Megan's POV


When my eyelids open to reveal the morning sunshine bursting through the windows, I can't help but feel safe and warm wrapped in Niall's arms. I didn't mean to fall asleep there, I just did. I start to get up, but go nowhere; his grip is strong.


His eyelids flutter open and he smiles. I smile back.


"Sorry for falling asleep on you last night." I look down when I say it. He makes me nervous. He smiles, and lifts my chin with his two fingers.


"It is perfectly okay. I have to say, I don't think I've slept that well in a looong time" he says stretching out the 'O' in long.


"Besides, if you falling asleep in my arms means I get to spend more time with you, so be it." He adds with a smile. I can't help but smile back at him. I can feel myself blush through the smile.


"Look, Megan, I realize that we don't really know each other very well, but I like you. A lot." I stay there, wrapped in his arms; shocked.


"I'm sorry I shouldn't have said that. It was too early. I'm sorry...” He protested. He started to ramble on; he's nervous. It's adorable really.


"Niall. I like you too." I say. He didn't hear me.


"Niall." He kept rambling. I grabbed his face in my hands and leaned in. My lips touch his and sparks fly through me. I feel butterflies soaring in my stomach.


Niall's POV


I told her I liked her. She just sat there; probably embarrassed. She likes Harry, I knew it! I feel like an idiot.


"I'm sorry I shouldn't have said that. It was too early. I'm sorry...” I start to ramble on. I have no idea what I'm doing at this point. I'm just spilling everything that comes to my mind. I feel her gentle hands on my face and she leans in. I feel her soft lips on mine. I can feel shivers running through my body.


I finally realize what’s happening and kiss her back, softly. We lay there kissing; our mouths moulding together in perfect harmony. I can feel Megan smiling into the kiss as I do as well. She pulls back.


"Niall, it's okay, really. Because I like you too." She smiles. Oh god, that smile. I melt a bit.


Megan’s POV


"So, would you like to go to dinner with me tonight?" He looks at me with his blue eyes and I feel like I'm starring into the sky. They're that blue. I nod my head yes and he hugs me. We get off the couch and he heads to the door. I close the door behind him. I sigh in content and slide down the door.


That kiss was amazing.



Niall’s POV


I muster up all the courage I can and ask her out. She nods and I hug her. I couldn't possibly happier at this moment. I have a date with Megan. I'm planning what to do mentally.


I get to my car and I'm smiling like an idiot. But I don't care; I’ve got a date. I start the car and drive home. I know exactly what to do.


Megan's POV


To: Megan

From: Niall  

'Dress comfy, I want to bring you to the park(: -Nialler'  



I smile and reply to the text



To: Niall

From: Megan  

'Sounds great! Can't wait!'  



He responds almost instantly.



To: Megan

From: Niall  

'I'll pick you up at 7:00? Can't wait either!'



To: Niall

From: Megan  

'Okay see you then'  



I put my phone down on the table and jump into the shower. I wash my hair and shave. I get out and remove my excess make-up. I dry my hair and straighten it.


I check my phone. 45 minutes.


I grab a pair of skinny jeans and slip into a blue chiffon shirt. I button it up and walk back to my mirror. Looks okay. I grab a skinny brown belt. I look back into the mirror; better. I apply some make-up. Not too much. And I finalize with some jewellery. Perfect. I don't look dressed up but I don't look like I don't care.


I hear a knock on my door. I run to the door, fix my hair and open it to see a smiling Niall on my doorstep.


"Ready?" he asks kindly.


"Yup, let me grab my coat." I grab my coat of the rack and pull it on. It matches my outfit. Good.


Niall reaches and grabs my hand. They fit together perfectly. I smile as he opens the car door for me. He sprints around to the other side and climbs in. Nice car; Cadillac. He starts the car and presses on the gas pedal, moving the car slightly forward. He pulls into traffic and we make our way to the park.


We get to the park and I see a little gazebo set up, surrounded by lake. I look at Niall, surprised.


"You did this?" I ask him with a smile.


"All of it. I rented out the park, more privacy that way." I couldn't believe what he was saying. He chuckles at my astonishment and leads me to the gazebo. When we near the gazebo, I see tea lights floating on lily pads. Romantic, I think to myself.


He strung lights through the ceiling of the gazebo. Inside, there's a blanket on the ground, with a picnic basket placed perfectly in the centre. I gasp and take in the beauty of it. He chuckles lightly and sits down on the blanket.


"Hungry?" he asks while patting the spot beside him on the blanket. I nod and sit down next to him. He pulls item after item out of the basket. He gives me a plate and we eat, converse and laugh. I felt great to have him as company.


By the time we had finished eating, we had become a lot closer. We lay down on the blanket starring up, into the sky; listening contently to the music playing quietly in the background. Niall stands up and reaches his hand out to me, I take it willingly. He pulls me close and starts to sway with the music. I giggle and lay my head on his shoulder. Best.Night.Ever! I smile to myself. We danced until we got tired, and he drove me home.


When we reached my doorstep, he grabbed my hands swinging them slightly between us.


"I would love to do this again." He says with a smile. I smile back.


"I would too. Defiantly." He takes my hand, kisses it and turns on his heel. I watch as he walks away, leaving me to stand outside on my doorstep; smiling like an idiot.
