    When the boat finally fled the docks, I stood at the end of the boat, silently watching the old peer as it slowly got further and further away from me.  Until it disappeared, fading into the horizon.  I used to sit on the docks like this every time my dad left.  no, stop it, no looking back, have fun.  I took one last deep breath and turned to face the front of the boat.  It was huge, i still cant believe Lana got a boat like this, it had white seats on both sides and 2 sets of stairs.  One that led down to the bed rooms; and the other led up to a hang out with more seats, but much nicer and air conditioned.  That was where everyone was, they were all drinking coffee since it we all got up so early in the morning to load the boat.

 

    I began walking up the small steps that led to the hang out, i was trying to be very careful not to slip and fall, but there is a reason that the word 'clumsy' exists.  That reason is me... 

 

    I slipped, one of the stairs was drenched in water, i was falling backwards.  I was no longer griping the railing, or even touching the stairs, no, i was in mid-air going to fall straight on my back.  I was going to break my neck.  I began bracing myself, i closed my eyes so tightly that i couldn't see a speck of light, just darkness, I was getting ready for the pain to seep in.  But something stopped me.  I opened my eyes and watched as they focused on him, Niall.  His bright blue eyes looked so concentrated on me, his arms made me feel warm, i felt like he was my extra sheet of protection that blanketed around me.

 

    "are you okay?" Niall asked me, he didn't dare let go of me, he cradled me in his arms, i liked it.  Just like my dad used to do.  oh no, this time i really couldn't hold it in.  Tears started to form and eventually escaped from my eyes and began rolling down my cheeks.  I couldn't help it, every time i saw him, he resembled something about my dad.  And, Niall, just saved me.

 

    "Natalie?" He shushed me and held me closer.

 

    "I'm sorry.  I just-"  I could not finish, as much as i wanted to, i knew i should just keep my mouth shut.  That and i didn't know where to begin.  So i just cried, I felt so comfortable though, crying into his chest, which made me cry even harder, sending endless rivers flowing down from my eyes.

 

    "Okay, sh,  it's okay, c'mon," He began as he walked to the bed rooms.  He brought me to a corner of the bed and sat me down next to him on the bed.  He began rocking me back and forth, while he softly hummed a song into my ear.  I could feel something wet rain on my left shoulder, he was crying too.  I listened carefully, his song calmed me down quite a bit, so much that i fell asleep, right in his arms.  His voice, so calming, so beautiful, and familiar.
