17. Coincidence...?

January 21st, 2018

 

I sit up and wake up to hearing a scream. Is that...me? As soon as I close my mouth, the noise stops. Yeah, that was me. I groan and put the sheet over my head as I lie back down. The nightmares are so frequent it's ridiculous. I rarely ever get a good nights sleep and neither does Niall. I lie there in silence until I feel the sheet being pulled off of my head. Niall has a worried face like he always does when he comes and sees if I'm okay. He holds one of my hands and rubs his thumb in circles on my skin. My breath has slowed now just by his touch.

"Morgan, what was it about this time?" he whispers.

"The same thing. The same one it is every night. I am so tired of this!" I say as my voice eventually rises to a yell.

Since I am laying down on one pillow, I punch the pillow next to me. I sit up and I punch it more and more. This anger and frustration built up inside of me is finally coming out. Niall sees how worked up I am getting and stops my poor pillow from the next punch.

"Calm down, it's going to be okay."

"I just-Niall, I can't ever sleep right. And I keep you up. Every night I bet you prepare yourself to comfort me after my next nightmare. It's not normal and I am more worried about you."

Niall gently tilts my chin and makes me look at him.

"Don't worry about me. We need to get you better. I'll help you through it."

"Thank you."

Niall kisses my forehead and I lay back down. Usually Niall gets up and goes back to his room. I want to try something though. Ever since that night Niall slept next to me, I realized that he kept me from having my nightmare.

"Niall, wait."

He turns around and comes and sits back down beside me.

"Please stay," I say.

Niall gets under the covers and cuddles next to me. For the rest of the night, I sleep peacefully in his arms than any other night before.

*******************************************************************************************

"Let's go into this house!" I yell as I grab Niall's hand.

There was a line of open houses in a neighborhood today and I made Niall come with me. We are visiting one after the other and I haven't really seen anything I like yet. While holding Niall's hand, I run and make him run with me to the open house.

"Morgan! Slow down!"

I stop running and start walking since people at the door would probably give me weird looks. Niall and I go hand in hand up to the front door.

"Hello!" the realtor at the door says.

"Hi," Niall and I say in unison.

"You two look cute. Are you looking for a house together?"

"Uh." Is all I can come out with until Niall says, "She is the one looking for a house. We aren't getting one together, yet."

Yet. We aren't getting one together yet.

"Yeah, my boyfriend decided to come with me to look. I just haven't found anything I really like," I say.

"Well have fun. This house is one that everyone talks about. I'm sure you'll love it."

"Thank you," I say.

Niall and I walk into the house and I am amazed at what I see as I look around. Huge kitchen. Huge fireplace. Huge living room. Huge staircase. Huge everything! I am just worried if it's a little too big for me. I notice that there are a lot of people looking at this house. It's definitely a favorite. I walk upstairs with Niall behind me and pass on e of the bedrooms.

"This house is amazing, Liam," I hear.

What? Liam?! I go back and look into the bedroom and there they are. Brooke and Liam at the same open house. What are the chances of THAT?!

"Brooke!" I say from the doorway as I wave.

She looks at me confused and then a smile spreads across her face.

"Morgan!"

We give each other a hug and then I give Liam a quick hug.

"Liam!" Niall yells and runs into Liam's arms as Brooke and I both laugh.

"So you're..." I say pointing to Brooke's stomach.

She nods her head and smiles as I squeal with excitement.

"Oh my gosh! We need to throw you a baby shower asap!"

"Who's we?" she asks.

"I don't know. I am going to get someone to help me though!"

"Alrighty then," she says.

"When are you due?!"

"June 29th," Brooke says as she smiles. 

Niall congradulates Liam and then wraps his arm around my waist.

"Woah, are you two-" Liam starts.

"Yeah," I say blushing.

"Who dumped who?!" Brooke asks.

"I was the dumper. He was the dumpee."

"I knew it! You didn't deserve someone like that selfish little sh-"

"Oookay!" I say before she finishes. "Let's not get too carried away."

"She's right though," Niall says and smiles at me.

I smile back and roll my eyes. They can insult him all they want, I don't care. But I am keeping my mouth shut from saying something I shouldn't.

"So what are y'all doing here?" I ask.

"The question is what are you doing here," Brooke says.

"Well, Jesse and I were moving here to London, and we stayed at Niall's. But since 'Jesse and I' no longer exists, I decided I would stay in London."

"Good choice."

"I hope so," I say playfully and nudge Niall.

Niall pretends to look hurt and he pouts. I kiss his cheek and he instantly smiles.

"Better?"

"Yes, much," he replies.

"Well, we are going to go on to the next house," Liam says.

"Now that I know you are back in London, we need to hang out," Niall tells Liam.

"Definitely."

"I'll call you later," I tell Brooke.

"Okay, see ya!"

We say our goodbyes and Niall and I are left alone in the empty bedroom.

"Next that will be us," he whispers.

"What do you mean?"

"Everything. Married, kids."

I blush as Niall kisses my cheek. I didn't realize he was thinking about that far into the future. I decide to talk to him about that later and we look at the rest of the house. We decide that this would be the last open house we went to today. I am definitely thinking about this house though. I might, just might make an offer on it. But now time for planning a baby shower!
