Twist In My Story


3. Realization


After sitting in the yard for an hour at least, I come inside. The credits are rolling and Morgan is fast asleep. All of the boys are looking at me, very confused that I was outside. I walk back to the couch and slowly sit down where I was. The boys are still looking at me.

"What?" I ask.

"When did you go outside?" Harry asks.

"I went while the movie was going."

"How could you leave during Batman?!" Liam exclaims.

I chuckle to myself, glad that someone isn't being so serious. I've been having serious thoughts for the past hour.

"Where did you go?" Louis asks curiously.

"I just sat in the yard."

"Doing what?" Zayn asks.

"Thinking! Stop interrogating me."

"Thinking about what?" Harry asks with a smile on his face.

"Things," I say as I sigh.

"Like?" Liam asks.

"Don't worry about it, lads."

It finally gets quiet and I look back at Morgan, who is still asleep. It's good that she is. I know she hasn't had very good sleep this past week. I wish she was mine. So, so bad. To just hold her when she's feeling down. Kiss her when she doesn't expect it. Cuddle with her. It's hard to resist the urge to kiss her on the forehead right now.

"You really like her, don't you?" Liam says breaking the silence.

That question startled me. I haven't told the boys anything. Should I? I mean, why would they tell her?

"We're friends," I say.

"That doesn't answer my question," Liam says still expecting an answer.

"Yes," I say as I sigh.

I get a round of quiet excited ooo's from the boys.

"Sh. You are going to wake her up," I say in a whisper yell.

Louis suddenly puts his hands on his mouth like a little kid that wasn't supposed to say something.

"Whatever. You and I both know that she sleeps through pretty much anything," Harry says.

"I just don't want her to hear," I say.



"I just don't want her to hear."

Too late. I have heard everything from when he came in to now. Honestly, I can't believe I didn't see it. Thinking about it now, it was so obvious. He was jealous of my ex, always wanting to hang out with me, and helped me through a lot. I don't know what to do. When he admitted it, my heart started beating faster and I got that good numby feeling. I just don't know. I leave my eyes closed, afraid that if I open them, someone will notice and know I have been eavesdropping.

Niall goes on, "I don't know how to tell her. And even if I do tell her, it will probably be awkward and it will ruin our friendship."

"It's alright, mate," Liam says.

"I would wait though until everything that Morgan is going through is over."

"I know, that's what I am doing. It's so hard though! I will probably accidentally blurt it out!" Niall says as his voice raises.

"Sh. You'll wake Morgan," Zayn says mockingly at Niall.

"Very funny," Niall retorts.

I lay there, trying to retain my laughter. It's so funny to see Niall get annoyed by one of them, especially since they used something Niall had said himself against him. I decide that now is the time I need to 'wake up'. I turn to the opposite side I was laying on and I open my eyes. I open them slowly though, so that it doesn't seem like they actually woke me up. I sit up and my eyes focus on Niall. He is just smiling at me. I smile back at him and lay down again. I stretch and do my best of making it look like I just woke up.

"Look what ya did Niall," Zayn says.

I look at Niall to see his reaction, and he just glares at him.

"Did what?" I ask.

"It's nothing," Niall says.

I raise my eyebrows at him and he just shrugs his shoulders. I guess I'm pretty good at acting. They haven't suspected anything. Louis and Liam get up and announce that they are going to bed. We all say goodnight to each other and then Harry and Zayn leave too behind Louis and Liam, leaving me alone with Niall. They probably did that on purpose. Niall and I sit there in silence, not really knowing what to say. Maybe Niall was right. It will make things awkward. At the same time though, I would I know that? I don't really know how I am feeling about this yet, but maybe I do. I got that feeling when he said he liked me. Maybe I should give it a try when he's ready to tell me.

"Morgan?" Niall says.


"What would you do if you like somone and want to tell them, but don't because you think it will be awkward?"

"I don't know it depends on who it would be and the timing."

"Well what if it was right now, right this second?"

My heart feels like it's going to jump out of my chest. I smile to myself. Maybe I do like him. You know what? I do. A lot. It's not hard for me to decide anymore.

"I would tell them," I say smiling at him.


"Just say it."

"Morgan, I like you, a lot."
