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!


38. I love it


“Can I talk to you?” I sighed, “Sure.” I lead her to the living room where I knew we’d get some peace. I felt someone follow us and when I turned, Aubrey was there. “Aubrey…” “I’m not leaving you with her” she cut me off. I looked over to Caroline and she just shrugged her shoulders. All three of us walked to the living room, Aubrey and I settled on the couch while Caroline sat on the coffee table in front of us. “What do you want?’ Aubrey rudely remarked. I nudged her in the shoulder, a queue for her to shut up. She needs to stay quiet during this because I want to hear every word.

“Alright, for starters, I want to say I’m so-…” “Save it. I really don’t want your apology because it won’t and never will change anything.” I just don’t want to hear it because I know she doesn’t mean it. “Just listen…I was a dumb and emotionless child and I’m sorry.” “Stop! Just stop.” I stood from the couch “No matter what you say or do, you’re still going to be Cara. The girl that left me scars and made me leave the only people that made me happy.” “KC, let’s go” Aubrey stood and grabbed a hold of my wrist. “I don’t think I can ever forgive you for what you’ve done.” Aubrey and I turned to leave but Harry stood in the doorway. Finally being brave enough to speak for myself, I walked straight to his face, “Don’t you EVER speak to me again. Not until you have a logical explanation to why she’s even in my presence” I scolded, brushing my shoulder against his as I walked back into the kitchen, with Aubrey closely behind.


“Can you help me!?” I shouted for Aubrey, I can’t seem to curl the hair in the back. “I’m putting Lux to bed but I’ll be there in a minute.” I wait for her and just as she said, she was in the bathroom in one minute. “Are you nervous?” she smiled, taking the curler from my hand and curling my hair. “A little bit” I admitted. “I saw your outfit on the bed, it’s really pretty and don’t worry you’ll be fine.” She reassured. “What time is your date with Zayn?” I asked. “Eh… a little later in the day.” “Isn’t it weird that we both got our boyfriends on the same day?” I laughed. “I know! Just our luck!” she laughed along. After she was done helping with my hair and makeup, I got dressed. I slipped on my dress; it’s a short-sleeve crochet floral dress, with a brown belt around the waist. I wore my white and brown sandals and my beaded coil bracelet on one wrist and the one Niall gave me on the other. It’s about 3:30 now and Niall should be here in about thirty minutes. I have to admit, I’m nervous. I wonder where he’s taking me, because leave it to Niall to surprise me. I hope what I’m wearing is alright.

I wait downstairs in the living room and sit on the couch. Aubrey can tell that I’m nervous by the bouncing of my leg. She was playing with Lux, “Can you tell your cousin that Niall is going to take good care of her” she spoke to Lux but made sure I heard. “And can you tell Aubrey that she should ‘shut up’ because she’s making it worse” I retaliated. Just then there was a knock on the door, “Oh gosh, it’s Niall, he’s early” I panicked. Aubrey rolled her eyes. I got up from the couch and straightened out my dress before opening the door. There he was, with a dozen roses held in his hand and a huge smile on his face. “Niall…they’re perfect” I cooed. I took them, but not before he slipped one from the rest. I gave him a questioning look when he snapped the stem off but smiled when he placed the rose behind my ear, moving some of the hair from my face. He left a kiss to my reddened cheek, “Beautiful…” he said as I took part of my bottom lip between my teeth. “I’ll be right back, let me just put these in some water.” I went to the kitchen and on my way I passed Aubrey; I stuck my tongue out at her and kept walking. After I set the flowers in a vase, I met Niall at the front door again. We stepped outside but his car was parked in the driveway, he never usually parks it there. I’m guessing we’re not taking it.

“So what do you have planned?” I ask, taking hold of his hand and entwining our fingers. “I told you it was a surprise” he grinned. I gave him a pleading face. He sighed, “Alright, well we’re walking through the park and I have a picnic set but I’m not telling you were it is, you’ll have to leave that part to the imagination.” “You’re so sweet.” “I know.” “And modest” I laughed.

We’re half way through the park; I see that we’re heading towards the pond. Niall was just telling me a funny story about what happened at the studio yesterday when a pair approaches us. “Do I know you?” The girl asks. She’s obviously older than the boy and around my age. My grip on Niall’s hand tightens a bit. “Um, I don’t know.”  She shakes her head, “What’s your name?” she asks. “KC?” I say, trying to give her a hint. “Karmen!” she exclaims, wrapping her arms around me and twirling me around. When she set me down I smiled because I realized who she had been. Josie. She looks so different, she dyed her hair completely dark purple, but she still has that signature smile. “I can’t believe it’s you! How have you been?” she asks, looking me up and down in awe. “I’ve been great!” I look to the boy she came with, he looks about eight or nine, “Oh my gosh, is this Makai?” She nods proudly. “Wow, I haven’t seen you since you were three/four years old.” I say, ruffling his hair. He laughs. “So what are you doing here?” I ask. “Makai and I just wanted to go for a stroll, how about you?” “I’m actually on a date with my boyfriend. Niall, this is Josie” I say to Niall, gesturing to Josie.”Oh yeah. We’ve met before, through Harry” he says. “You’ve seen Harry as well?!” she exclaims. I nod. “It’s like the whole gang is back together!” “I know. Here, take my number and we can meet up tomorrow or maybe the next day.” I said, taking her phone and dialing my number. “Ok, I’ll see you then!” she said, waving goodbye.

“Is this really necessary?” I ask. Niall is carrying me, my legs wrapped around his waist as he holds me by my lower back. My chin is snuggled in the crook of his neck and my eyes are closed, just as instructed. “Yes, I don’t want you peeking nor do I want your sandals getting wet.” “Sandals getting wet!? You act like you’re going to walk across the Pacific while holding me in your arms.” He laughed. “Alright, we’re here.” I turned my head and just as I suspected, we’re at the pond. But there’s a row boat and inside of it there’s his guitar. Before I knew it, Niall had set me down in the boat and accommodated himself. He took the ores and started sailing us further into the pond. Niall kept my gaze the entire time, making me blush.

When we got to the center of the pond he stopped and reached for his guitar. “Do you like it so far?” he asked while tuning his guitar. I nodded, “I love it. I think it’s romantic” I shyly replied. He blushed a bit, “I know it’s not Valentine’s Day but I’d still like to sing this to you.” I nodded.

Valentine’s Day by Summertime’s End

Roses are red
And violets are purple
But that doesn't rhyme
So instead we say blue
I used to be alone
On Valentine's Day
Thank the Lord for the day I met you

And winter may come
And blow out the candles
But we'll take the sky
And we'll paint it in blue
The air once was cold
On Valentine's Day
But the sunlight came when I met you

We woke before dawn
And danced with the flowers
As the frost on the grass showed its wintergreen hue
I used to believe
Love was Valentine's Day
But I know now it's when I'm with you

And the dewy ground cooled
And sparkled in twilight
As fireworks lit up the skyline above
You were holding my hand
Just like Valentine's Day
And I knew what it was to feel love

“That was amazing. Thank you.” He shied. “I’d lean forward more and kiss you but I don’t want to tip the boat” I laughed. Oh forget it. I lunged myself to him, wrapping my arms around his neck and deeply kissing him. I could feel him smile into the kiss. I rest my forehead against his, “This is perfect” I smiled. He rubbed his nose against mine, making me giggle, and gave me another kiss before getting the ores and rowing. “I’m glad you like it, but it’s not over yet.”

We got to the other side of the pond and I saw a blanket with a basket out on the grass. Niall helped me out of the boat and onto the bank. We settled onto the blanket and brought out the food that was in the basket.  It wasn’t a big meal but he somehow brought all of my favorites. Toast with nutella, bagels with cream cheese, strawberries, grapes and even sweet tea! All so random yet so perfect. “I got you something” I said, rummaging through my dress pocket for the gift. “You didn’t ha-…” “I wanted to” I said. I brought out the leather strap bracelet and gave it to him. I had an ‘N’ engraved into it. “Here” I said as I helped him snap it on around his wrist. “Now we match.” “Thank you” he said, leaving a lingering kiss on my cheek.

Niall’s POV:

The sun was starting to set and as much as we didn’t want to go, we had to. KC and I walked back to Lou’s, hand in hand. She had to be there to care for Lux while Aubrey was away on her date. We just got to the front door of the house. “Thank you for today, I truly had a great time” she said, laying her hands on my chest. “I’m glad. I had a great time as well” I said, laying my hands on her waist. “Happy one month, KC” I said, leaving a kiss on her forehead. “And many more to come?” she asked, with her wide, innocent eyes. I smiled, “And many more to come” I reassured before pressing my lips to hers and savoring the feel of our meshed lips.

It would have been a whole minute of us kissing on her doorstep, until Aubrey opened the front door. “ Hello!” she shouted, “Welcome to Casa de La Lou, can I help you?” she taunted. KC groaned which made me laugh. “Every Freakin’ Time!” she exclaimed. “So are you gonna help me with my hair, or what?” Aubrey asked. KC looked back at me, “I love you, Karmen” I said, giving her one last kiss. “I love you too…wait! Can you stay? Please!” she pleaded. “Sure I can.” I said and stepped into Lou’s with the girls.

“Help me! I have a date with Zayn!” Aubrey shouted, dragging KC upstairs, while I stayed with Lux downstairs. “Cousin KC’s best friend is cwaazzyy” I said in my best baby voice. Lux just giggled and nodded. That’s my girl.

A/N: If there are any grammar mistakes... my bad! Shout out to Josie...finally in the chapter.

Down here is KC's outfit and Niall's 'bracelet'...yeah
