Remember Your Promise -Complete-

“Remember when you left without saying goodbye?” he asked.
“Yes” I replied sadly, remembering it like it was yesterday.
“Promise me you’ll never do it again.”
“I promise”

**KC and Aubrey are best friends and go to London to stay with KC's aunt and celebrate her 18th birthday. What happens when she runs in to an old friend? Does meeting him once again bring back her past sadness or clash with her happy future?**
First Movella...excited!


7. A day with you

Niall’s POV:

It was around 8:00 when I woke up and I was so excited. Can’t wait for 10:00! I went to the bathroom to freshen up; I slipped on some jeans, a dark blue shirt, and some matching shoes. I headed down stairs to see if anyone was awake yet. Nope. Even though I was eating out with KC in a couple of hours, I couldn’t wait that long. So I poured myself a bowl of cereal and sat at the island in the middle of the kitchen. I heard footsteps come downstairs, I thought it was Zayn because he came home and fell asleep so early. To my surprise it was Harry. He seemed kind of surprised to see me up so early and fully clothed.

“Morning” he said. “Morning” I said back, eating my cereal. “Where are you going so early?” he asked, looking in the fridge but pointing to the clock that read 9:20. “Out” I blankly replied. “With whom?” he asked still looking in the fridge. I didn’t know why he wanted to know; maybe it was because I rarely went places by myself. “With KC” I replied. He stopped what he was doing, closed the refrigerator and sighed, turning around to face me. He put his hands on the edge of the island and asked “Did you say KC?” “Yeah, KC” I replied laughing, knowing that he obviously heard me.

Harry’s POV:

I couldn’t help but feel a bit jealous when he told me Karmen was going out with him. I was the only guy in Karmen's life when we were friends, now there’s Niall. “Are you guys going out to eat or something?” I asked, sounding extra curious. “Yeah, Breakfast” he replied. “Where?” “Why does it matter?” he replied with a bit of an attitude. I wanted to slap him so hard when he said that. Nothing against Niall, I love the guy, but when it came to Karmen, I’d do anything to not see her cry ever again. I don’t want to see her hurt, I’ve seen it plenty of times and I don’t like it. “I just want to make sure she’s safe.” I said feeling empty, not trying to show my feelings but failing. “You really care about her, don’t you?” he asked, feeling sorry about his previous question. “Yeah, a lot.” “I promise to keep her safe, OK?” he asked trying to lighten my mood. “OK, I guess I’ll see you later then.” With that I headed upstairs to my room, laid in my bed, and stared at the ceiling, trying to get her out of my head.


I was almost finished getting ready. Lou was back with Lux and was helping me with my hair. “So where are you guys going out to eat?” Lou asked, straightening the last couple strands of my hair. “I’m not sure, he didn’t tell me where we were going.” I replied. “Are you excited?” She asked, brushing through my hair one last time. “Yeah, it should be fun.” I replied. “All done, I’m going to go back to my room and SLEEP, have fun.” She said tiredly. “OK, thank you” “Welcome” she said heading to her room. I went into my room, opened my drawer and pulled out some clothes. It was summer in London but, it wasn’t all that hot. I wore some white shorts that stopped a little above mid-thigh, a black t-shirt that said ‘Eat, Pray, EAT’ on it, and my black converse. My straightened hair falls mid-back and is always in my face, so I grab a white head band and slip it on. I’m not much of a ‘girly-girl’, I’m just a ‘pants and t-shirt type of girl’, but I make sure I’m color coordinated.

I heard someone knock on the front door. I turn around to face the alarm clock in my room, 9:57. Oh gosh…it’s Niall. I hurry and grab my wallet and my phone off the charger and put them into my bag, then head downstairs. I pass the living room and see Aubrey watching TV, “You couldn’t answer the door?” I ask her, irritated. “It’s not my boyfriend knocking at 10 in the morning.” “He’s not my boyfriend.” I say unlocking the door. “Not yet” she says quietly so I could barely hear her, but I did. I open the door to see a smiling Niall. “Hey” he says. “Hi” I reply shyly. We stare in each others eyes for a couple seconds until he breaks the silence. “Should we go?” “Yeah” I replied shutting the door behind me. “I hope you don’t mind if we walk there, trust me it’s not that far.” He says. “No, its fine, I don’t mind walking.”I said. While we walked we talked about all sorts of things, our favorite things to do, sports we’ve played and even our favorite foods. When we got to restaurant, there weren’t many people and I liked it that way. We sat at our table, ordered our food and enjoyed each others company.

“Why do you do that?” he asked. “What do you mean?” I asked confusingly. “You look down and play with your fingers.” “Oh, I guess it’s just something I do when I’m nervous.” I replied, feeling more confident now that I’ve admitted it. “Why are you nervous?” … why was I nervous? “I guess it’s because… I’ve haven’t really been…on a…date…in a while.” I said.

Niall’s POV:

I couldn’t believe it, she’s so pretty. I had a surprised expression on my face. “Really? Why not?” I asked. “Well, I have once before when I was twelve with this guy named Ha-…” She paused, like she realized the guy she was going to say was not only in her pass but also around today, and he is. Harry? I wouldn’t have known. I just thought they were friends back then. She looked down again and played with her fingers that lay on the table. “I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have asked. I di-..” “It’s not your fault, it was years ago.” “Well, tell me how your life was after you came back to California from Cheshire.” I suggested trying to change the sensitive subject and lighten her mood. It instantly did, she told me about the city and how she met Aubrey. Life out there must be great.


We walked back home after breakfast. It was nice. “Sorry for making you walk so much.” He apologized. “No, its fine, I like walking with you.” It was the truth; I really enjoyed him being around. The back of our hands brushed together as we walked, sending electrifying bolts up my arm with every touch. After seconds of torture, he grabbed my hand and fit his fingers between mine. Perfect. I looked up at him and smiled, he smiled back.

We got to the front door, still holding hands. “The lads and I were wondering if you and Aubrey wanted to come over for…a movie night.” He suggested. “I’d love that and I’m pretty sure Aubrey wouldn’t mind.” “Great so I’ll pick you guys up tonight at…eight?” he asked. With that I stepped closer, wrapped the one hand that wasn’t holding his, around his neck, stood on my tip-toes and kissed him on the cheek. As I let go, I looked him in the eyes and repeated “Tonight at eight.” The grip of our hands loosened as I walked away and into the house, I looked back to see him looking down, smiling.
