Grace Sims is a nobody. She doesn't have any friends unless you consider her family her friends. She is on her second year at High School. All year she's never had any friends. Not one. When a new student comes they're might be hope. A blonde named Niall offers Grace friendship. But Grace is a shy, lonely, lost, and broken girl, who could use some fixing. Niall spends a few days trying to figure out her. What's her story that's broken her to dust. Why can't she smile or be happy? What was so bad that it changed her life drastically. Niall's #1 goal now is to help her smile and be happy. He won't give up. That's not Niall Horan. Could he really make her smile?

*Niall NOT famous*


33. Back to School.

My alarm went off and slid to dismiss it. I looked at my window. It was still dark. I got out of bed and yawned. I ran my shower water and pulled my hair out of it's bun. I ruffled it up and brushed my teeth. I stripped and got in my shower. I washed my hair and face and got out. I dried off and dried my hair. I went to my closet in my robe and looked for clothes. I decided on a blue tank-top, a white see-through sweater, and blue tribal print shorts, and brown ankle high boots. I made my hair straight and applied some foundation. Today I was going to start a new me. It's a new year and I have had enough of this. Niall is also a friend! I am so happy I can finally say that. I stuffed my phone in my brown bag and left downstairs. It was 7:06am. Perfect! I go in the kitchen and my mom, dad, and sister look shocked at me.

"What's up with you guys?" I say with a positive attitude.

"Your outfit, is very... Different than what you usually wear to school." My mom says. It really isn't that different.

"It really isn't. What is for breakfast?" I say taking a seat.

"Waffles. Blueberry." Kylie says. I nod and sure enough my mom makes me a plate of two thick blueberry waffles. I eat them and make sure I have all my books and notebooks. I am good to go. I open my door and Niall is there.

"What are you doing here?" I say in a cheery tone.

"I came to pick you up. Our first day as friends. By the way your outfit is looking hot." He says winking to me. I blush and walk to the bus stop with him. It's 72 degrees.

"Thank you. You look fresh." I say. He laughs.

"Today is a new start and I am a new me. I will no longer be bullied." I say proudly.

"Wow. That's a big step Grace. I am proud." He says.

"My dad taught me self defense." I say with my head up high. We see the bus and get on and sit with each other. How could I ever think it was all fake. He has truly showed me that we can be friends. We talk about our Christmas gifts and we get to school. We get off the bus and go in the courtyard and chat. I am absolutely not nervous about Josh and Alex. My life as a loser is over, I am done with putting up with it. I will clean my locker and I am prepared for the worst.

"Grace. Glad you decided to join us after break. Now we can continue what I started." I heard someone say. I shut my locker. It was Alex. I rolled my eyes and sighed.

"Leave me alone." I say with a strong attitude. Where is this all coming from? I have never been able to stand up for myself.

"What did you say?" Alex growled through his gritted teeth. I start to have lots of adrenaline.

"You heard me. Don't make me repeat." I say shutting my locker. I leave put he pulls my arm.

"Don't you ever walk away." He says with anger. Some people stare. Today, sorry, this year. Old Grace is gone, new Grace is here.

"Watch." I say walking away with my head high. Today wasn't their day. This year actually might be fun. I walk to my first period and attend.


The lunch bell ringed and I rushed out of class. Actually eager to see Niall. I want to tell him my accomplishments so bad. Nothing can go wrong. I sit at the table and wait a few minutes, soon he sits down out of breath.

"What's a matter?" I say concerned.

"I rushed to lunch to see you." He says. I think I blushed.

"Oh. Guess what happened ?" I say excited.

"What?" He says.

" Alex approached me and wanted me and I turned him down." I say filled with excitement.

"Good job! We are making serious progress." He says giving me a high-five.

"Niall, I am not a little kid. But.. Thank you." I say.

"Yeah, sorry." He say laughing. I look around and everyone is staring at us. Why? Oh no. Josh and Alex come to our table.

" Grace, I believe we have some unfinished business. Especially from this morning." Alex says. I roll my eyes.

"Leave me alone." I say. Niall is staring debating on whether or not he should join in.

"Grace, bring your arse." Josh says snickering.

"Lads, I think you should leave." Niall says standing up.

"What are you going to do? Hor-an." Alex says.

"Beat you guys." Niall says stepping away from the table but coming close to me.

"Yeah right. Sit your arse down and shut up." Josh says to Niall.

"I am not going anywhere with you guys. I am done with your crap. All of the bullying, hurting, and annoying, you guys are done and won't mess with me." I say standing up from the table like Niall. Everyone gasp.

"I've had enough of you Grace." Alex says before approaching me and grabbing my waist. Self defense. I elbow Alex in the stomach, then Alex bends over in pain, and I knee him in the face. Alex falls to the ground in pain swearing. People are gasping and look shocked. I stand over him proudly.

"Listen here you little b*%!@! Bring your arse!" Josh say before pulling my arm. I use my other arm to grab a hold of the arm Josh is using to pull me. With that, I lift my legs off the ground and kick him with both legs and full force. We both fall to the ground. I quickly get up and walk back to Niall. He places his arm around my shoulder and we walk out proudly. Wtf, just happened? I have never done that. My dad taught me right.

"Grace, I am so proud." Niall says squeezing my shoulders. I laugh and we walk to the courtyard. We talk and then go in with the rest of our days. I have no problems and people stare and whisper. I have a better boost of confidence. I get on the bus and go home saying goodbye to Niall. Dang today was good. I can't wait for tomorrow!

Or so I think....

(A/N hey guys the next chapters may include some swearing, please bare with it.)
