7. Chapter 7

I was the first to break eye contact but I still felt his gaze. I continued to look out the window. He finally decided to set me down by the window. I sat on the window edge and opened the window at the bottom and smelled the air. More tears flooded my face. 

"Do you like rain?" He chuckled. I nodded my head yes. Then he looked at me more seriously. "What happened to your family Maya?" He looked at me expecting an answer then he remembered that I don't talk "Never mind." He said getting up. "You hungry?" I nodded yes. 

"I don't eat vegetables except for carrots and potatoes." I said. 

"Louis is gonna like you. He loves carrots." Then he walked out of the room. I didn't peel away from the window until it stopped raining. Then, Niall walked in with carrots, potatoes, and a turkey sandwich. "Thanks" I mumbled.

"You're talking more and more. Is it something I said?" He smiled. I smiled and started eating. I could feel his gaze. For some reason I trust him. Something about appeals to me. I look into his blue eyes again. I kinda like Niall. He seems like a really nice guy. 


When I was done eating, Niall took my plates downstairs to the kitchen then came back up into his room. "You tired?" He asked. I looked at my iPhone. It was 9:00. I nodded yes. He came over and picked me up. We stared into each others eyes. He walked over to the bed, and without breaking eye contact, he put me on the bed and kissed my forehead. "Goodnight." He said. "Night." I mumbled back. His lips were still on my forehead he pulled back slightly to look in my eyes. Then gently brushed his lips to mine. Realizing what he was doing he pulled back, and mumbled "sorry." To my ear. He did t look very sorry. I wasn't either. I WANTED that to happen. I heard more rain, and drifted off to sleep.


I woke up to someone shaking me. Dad! No! It can't be him! His hands were still on my shoulders. I did what came naturally and kneed him in the groin with my left leg. I opened my eyes and saw Niall lying the floor in pain. Then pain hit my left knee. I yelped in pain, and grabbed my knee. I looked over at Niall. He was just getting up. "I'm so sorry Niall!" I said while holding my knee. 

"It's ok nice shot by the way. I'm gonna get some ice for that knee, I'll be right back." He said. Then, it started to rain again. I hopped to the the edge of the window and opened it.
