The one that got away

I'm Niall Horan's SISTER? Then why did he...

[Completed story]


33. Final goodbyes

I blinked away the tears and turned around on my heels realizing I was walking the wrong way. Being my clumsy self, my shoulder hit his bedroom door that wasn’t fully closed (thanks to me of course) and swung it open completely. And there he was, standing right behind the door, either about to come out of his room or getting up to shut the door. And with my luck, it hit him, straight on.

“I- I’m so s-sorry” I rushed, panicked.

He looked me up and down blankly and closed his door shut. I tried to swallow away the tight feeling building up in my throat but I couldn’t.

“I’m sorry okay? I would take it all back if I could, but I can’t!” I shouted, mentally. Well I thought it was mentally.

The door crept open.

“Excuse me?”

“I’m sorry, for last night I mean.  I don’t know what came over me, I- I just..”

He stared deeply into my eyes. Usually at this point he would kiss me and tell me everything is fine. But, it’s not. It’s ruined.

“You just?” He crossed his arms.

“I panicked.” I suggested.

“Panicked?” he huffed.

I looked down at the floor, embarrassed.

He put his index finger under my chin and brought my face back up. We stared into each other’s eyes.

“Look, I don’t know why you did what you did, but it’s been done. I don’t know what to say anymore.”

“I love you.” I blurted out.

“Wh-what? No. I’ve tried that already and it didn’t really work out did it?” He snarled.

“N-no I mean-”

“Goodbye Vanessa.” He cut me off.

“What I mean to say was-” He waved off what I wanted to say and backed into his room, quietly shutting his door.

“I love you.” I finished, pointing my heart with my trembling fingers as I pronounced the I.

/A few hours later/

We arrived at the airport. Their flight was shortly after mine so we all stood together, giving in our luggage, going through security and walking over to the waiting area.

“Flight 753 to Ireland” A woman’s voice called through a speaker.  

I got up quickly, obviously stressed.

“Is now boarding passengers with small children.” She continued.

I looked at Niall who was sitting at my side and sat back down. He patted my lap.

“Looks like someone’s exited to leave.” He joked.

I bit my lip. “I- I just-” I stuttered.

He smiled. “I’m kidding.”

“I know, I just- everything has passed so quickly, like the summer. And you guys are going to be gone in no time. As soon as I board that plane I don’t even know when I’m going to see you again, Niall.” I rushed.

“Calm down love, I’m your brother remember? You can see me anytime you need.” He reassured me.

“But that’s the thing! I CAN’T!” I shouted.

He raised his eyebrows. “Wha-”

“I’ve never BEEN able to see you when I wanted to Niall! Only now! Who knows what’ll happen? Maybe you’ll even forget about me? I’m not anybody important am I?” I cut him off.  

“Vanessa, I could NEVER forget you.” He said placing a hand on my shoulder.

I looked at him with teary eyes. “Forgetting about me seems to be a common thing in this family.” I said shrugging.

“I- Vaness-”

“All passengers for flight 753 to Ireland may now board the plane.” The speaker voice spoke up again.

I guess now’s goodbye. Because the only one I’d maybe see again would be Niall. And that wasn’t even for sure. It may seem that I am over exaggerating but I screwed everything up and after all they’re my brother’s friends, not mine.

I gave a quick hug to Zayn and Liam, thanking them for everything and saying my goodbyes. I walked over to Harry and wrapped my arms around him. I don’t care about last night. He’s been a best friend to me, that’s unmistakable.  

“Harry… Please never forget me. I love you. Goodbye.” I said biting my lip. My eyes became misty.

I turned around to give a hug to Louis but he’d walked over to the water fountain, avoiding me.

“You can say bye to him for me. Please.” I asked Harry who nodded quietly.

I walked over to Niall.

He wrapped his arms around me and squeezed me into a big bear hug. Tears started to stream down my cheeks.

“I- I love you SO much Niall.” I sobbed.

“I love you more than you can ever imagine Vee..” He whispered into my hair.

“All final passengers for flight 753 to Ireland must now board the plane.” The woman’s voice ushered through the speakers.

“I’m going to miss you.” He said.

“Me too.” I choked out.

I walked away, giving a final wave to everyone and handing my passport and plane ticket to the lady. I took one last glance at Louis who wasn’t even looking in my direction- Oh the mistake he was making. Because it’d be the last time he’d see me. Ever.
