Dirty Little Secret - A Niall Horan Story

Everybody has a dirty little secret. Want to know what mine is? My dirty little secret is that.. Well, I am someone elses dirty little secret. Niall Horan's dirty secret that is. A secret he isn't so keen on letting the whole wide world know about. But as everyone may know, is that the thing about secrets is that they often don't stay hidden for long...


21. 'You are telling me that Santa doesn't exist? OH NO!'

‘I don’t know if I have told you this..’

Niall started, he looked at me and then he looked down at his hands. They were fumbling in his lap and he seemed to be nervous. Why he was nervous, well I didn’t have a clue to that one.

‘Told me what? If it’s about Santa not existing then it’s cool, I’ve known for quite some time.’

I patted his head slowly and his facial expression changed into a small smile, then quickly into a chocked one.

‘You are telling me that Santa doesn’t exist? OH NO!’

He jumped up from the chair and started running around crazy in the apartment. I just sat at the kitchen table watching him fool around; I loved seeing him this happy and carefree. Now that it was a new year and everything, things were slowly getting normal so to say. Maybe that was just because of the fact that they didn’t have any touring or performances yet, just simple time off.

‘You forgot to tell me..’

I started but that interrupted by the doorbell. I shot a questioning look over to the door, I wasn’t expecting any company. I started to get up but was quickly pulled down on the chair again. This time it was Niall I shot a questioning look. Who was at the door? And why was Niall so nervous about it?

‘Well, you see, my momma’s birthday was the other day as you may know.’

He glanced at the door and then back at me. What did his mother’s birthday have to do with the fact that someone was at my door? And just as the door opened I realized what it was all about. In the doorway was Niall’s mother standing with a wide grin looking straight at me.

‘Alex, this is my mother Maura.’

I looked away from her and looked back at Niall, he had a small smile across his lips and his eyes were gleaming with excitement. If I had known that I was about to meet the mother I would have cleaned up a bit more, since I was wearing an old t-shirt and some slacks.

‘It’s really nice to meet you,. But I must say that you’ve caught me by surprise.’

She returned my smile and then she engulfed me in a hug.

‘No need to be formal, dear. Rumor has it that you are the one that has stolen my little boy’s heart.’

I glanced over to Niall and his read was now a lovely shade of crimson, oh how cute he was when he was embarrassed.

‘Well, we can’t just stand around here in the doorway; I want to get to know everything about you.’

Moira emphasized on everything and gave me a small wink and sat down at the kitchen table. I looked up at the ceiling wishing that I didn’t do anything stupid to fuck this on up.


‘That was. Interesting. To say the least.’

I chuckled and Niall threw me a playful glare. I didn’t think he expected that his mom would bring some baby pictures of him to show off to me. He was a very pretty baby, I can defiantly agree with that.

‘Your mom is a very lovely woman, it’s really odd that she gotten you as a son.’

I nudged him and planted a kiss on his nose.

‘But why didn’t you warn me? This was kind of out of the blue. Did you speak to Amelia?’

I was starting to think that Amelia had something to do with this, since she actually thought it was weird the other day that I hadn’t met anyone in his family. Maybe she took matters into her own hands and actually confronted Niall about it, forcing him into having this meeting. Nothing about that would surprise me, since I knew how Amelia always wanted things to go her way.

‘No, why would I have spoken to Amelia? Well, I didn’t really know how to bring it up.’

He glanced down at his feet and I did the same. So Amelia didn’t have anything to do with it at least, that was a comfort.

‘As you know, mom’s birthday was the other day and well, she was wondering why you weren’t there.’

He looked up and met my eyes, and I raised an eyebrow. Had his mother wondered why I wasn’t there? I didn’t even know she knew about me to be honest. Surprise! Or something like that.

‘I didn’t invite you because I didn’t know if you wanted to meet them, things have been going up and down lately and yeah, I wanted everything to be perfect. Didn’t want to scare you off or anything like that.’

He continued. I couldn’t help but to melt a bit inside, he was afraid that I would be maybe potentially leave him because of the pressure of meeting his family? He was far too cute sometimes, and of course, he worried too much.

‘Of course I wouldn’t be scared off because of that, if anyone would be scared about anything; it would be you meeting my family. They are wacko! And really bad at English.’

I laughed at the last part; my mom wouldn’t even have a clue what Niall was saying if she met him. She would just smile and be special like she always was.

‘Mom actually said that she wanted to meet you, as a late birthday present.’

‘I feel sorry for her; I must be very sucky birthday present.’

Niall leaned in and kissed me carefully on the cheek and grabbed my hand.

‘You are the best birthday present anyone could ever get.’

‘Then maybe I should start giving myself out to people, who wouldn’t want to give the best present to people, right?’

I laughed and so did Niall.

‘Oh no you don’t, you are mine, and mine only.’

He started tickling my side and soon we fell down together on a little heap on the floor. After awhile I surrendered completely and he stopped tickling me. We just laid beside one and another on the floor, staring at the ceiling.

‘I wish that we could stay this way forever.’

He whispered and took my hand. I glanced over to him and raised an eyebrow.

‘Here on the floor?’

‘You know that’s not what I meant.’

He turned around and faced me, and I did the same. Staring intently in each other’s eyes, I wiggled my way closer to him and closed my eyes as his wrapped one arm around me.

‘Forever isn’t long enough when it comes to you.’

He whispered and the smile on my face didn’t fade for the whole day.
