Twist In My Story


9. New Feelings

Still October 7th


As I wash and hand the dishes to Niall, I think about what he said. Jesse is making me unhappy. I am finally realizing that now. He has never really made me happy. Maybe a few times, but in a relationship, you are supposed to feel happy with them almost all of the time. That isn't me and Jesse.


"Yes?" he says, obviously startled from me suddenly talking.

"I think you're right." Niall stops and stares at me, his eyes lighting up a little bit.

"Y-You do?"

"Yep, I do. I'm gonna dump him," I say as my heart beats faster at the thought of having to do such a thing.


"Today. Right when he gets back from his meeting."

"R-Really?!" Niall exclaims.

"Yes, Niall," I say as I chuckle. "You act as if you can't believe it."

"That's because I can't! How long have you guys been dating?"

"A few years, and a few years too many."

Niall laughs and we go back to cleaning the dishes. I go through different scenarios in my head of how to let Jesse go.

Scenario #1: Jesse, you're an ass and I'm dumping you. No, no. That's too harsh.

Scenario #2: Jesse, I know this is sudden, but I don't think it's going to work for us anymore. Maybe that's a little too nice?

Scenario #3: Jesse, I don't think it's going to work. I'm dumping you. Nice and harsh? Perfect.

Now that I'm thinking, my mind goes to the dream I had two nights ago. Why did I have that dream? The reason I'm so confused is because I had feelings for my best friend. And maybe I do? I don't know. It's so hard not to tell Niall about it. I hand Niall the last dish and our hands accidentally touch. I lock eye contact with Niall and I can feel myself blushing. I clear my throat and turn around as Niall takes the dish slowly from me. Yep, I do have feelings for my best friend. Niall and I have finally cleaned up his kitchen after 3 hours and Jesse still isn't back yet. We go sit on the couch in the living room and watch TV. I notice that Niall and I are sitting a little close and my heart beats fast. Even though I feel fluttery inside, I feel exhausted from cleaning. I am trying to stay awake, but I can't. Without thinking about it, I lean on Niall.

"You tired?" Niall asks.


I yawn and Niall wraps me in a blanket and puts his arm around me. I lean on his shoulder and he leans his head on mine. My heart beats faster and faster, but I still fall asleep peacefully in Niall's arms.
