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.



Megan’s POV


My eyes shoot open as the door slams shut.


“Shit.” I can hear Niall cursing.


I slide out from under the covers and wrap my arms around myself to keep warm.


“Niall?” my voice sounds groggy from the sleep. I flick on the lights and squint from the new bright light source. After my eyes adjust I see Niall, standing there with shopping bags looped around his arms.


“Erm… Hey babe.” He tries to hide the bags behind his back. “Sorry to, uh, wake you.” He looks into my eyes and shifts uncomfortably from foot to foot.


“It’s okay. I see you did some shopping.” He nods faintly, trying again to hide the bags.


“Uhmm… I’ll be up in a bit, yeah?” he asks sweetly. I nod, kiss his cheek and turn to make my way up the stairs.


I climb into bed and can’t help but smile at his surprised expression. He definitely wasn’t expecting to see me. But I mean come on, if you’re making that much noise of course I’m going to hear you. I laugh to myself but stop when I hear the door open.


Niall makes his way over to the bed, crouches down and kisses my forehead lightly.


“Two days love. Two days ‘til Christmas.”


I giggle at his giddiness and hum in affection to the kisses he placed all over my face. He soon straightens up and walks over to his side of the bed, sliding the covers back to let himself in. He wraps his arms around my waist and tugs me in closer to his chest; nuzzling his face into the back of my neck.


I fall asleep in his embrace; listening to him as he hums ‘Silent Night’ in my ear.
