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*


18. Niall and Grace

I lied down listening to music while sketching a flower. I was bored and needed a fixture. I was listening to Love Will Remember by Selena Gomez. This is the only song i like besides Birthday. (Not really). I felt a tap on my shoulder and looked around. It was my mom.

"Honey, Niall said he wants to see you. Are you guys a thing?" My mom says smiling. I miss that.

"No, of course not. Mom I don't even think like that." I say overreacting. I pull my earplugs out and go in my closet finding clothes.

"Oh honey, stop. I can tell he likes you. Grace you are a very pretty girl. Guys will be all over you. I used to have guys trying to hit that with me." My mom said trying to be hip. It was not working.

"Mom don't ever say 'hit that' again." I say selecting a pair of light colored jeans, a PINK jacket in gray, and gray UGGs. Definitely trying to avoid the stereotype. I change in my closet and see my mom left. I grab my phone and my keys and leave. I lock the door and turn around and see a cute boy known as Niall. He is smiling at me and makes his presence known.

**will continue later, it's 12:56am here so yeah, plus I got school and dance so... I should serious be asleep. Btw, Happy late Thanksgiving!

"Hey Grace." He says while pulling out his phone. I glance at it and see it's a iPhone 5S, in gold.

"I like your phone." I blurt before realizing. He looks up and chuckles. I give him a confused look but he still laughs.

"I like your hair." He says. I pat my hair and remember I put it in a ponytail. I take it out and ruffle my hair around. Niall stares at my actions and bites his lips.

"Do you consider us friends?" He ask while putting his phone up.

"I don't know. Are we?" I ask truly confused. I go in deep thought. Suddenly my body tingles. I have a friend! Tell the world I have a friend! Niall is my friend. Shoot! He never confirmed it.

"Yeah we are, if that's chill with you? I have wanted to be your friend since that day in the courtyard." I shutter at the thought of turning him down. I notice he's wearing a orange sleeveless shirt, khaki pants and converse. His abs are see-able through his shirt. I just wanna run my hand on them and.... No! No! Bad Grace! No. I slap myself and Niall laughs at me. Did I just do that?

"Grace are you okay?" He says in between laughs. I glare at him and walk along the sidewalk.

"I want to show you something. It's a little trail in-between our houses. You've probably seen it but haven't recognized it." He says walking by our fences on the side of our houses. I follow closely and see it goes down the hill. There are leaves everywhere and it's a leafy scenery. It's beautiful, like those #sweaterweather tags on Instagram.

"Careful, it's a bit slippery. If you fall you may twist a ankle so be careful." He says before we go down the steep hill. There's trees everywhere. Roots are sticking from the ground and makes it dangerous. The sun is shining. It's around 11 in the morning.

"That's reassuring. Thanks Horan." I say before stepping over roots. I put my arms up to balance myself.

"Careful. Don.'to trip or it'll be a painful way down." He says. I try to find humor and fail. Niall picks up his pace and is about a aha few car lengths ahead of me. I guess looking at Niall caused me pain. I tripped over a root and fell backwards to wear I was lying down and on my back, I slid on the leaves and screamed. I hit a few branches and I think they left bruises on my stomach. I remember turning on my right side and sliding. I felt arms wrap around my waist and I stopped firmly. I looked and saw Niall. His piercing eyes were looking to mine. He was almost on top of me and not. I felt a different atmosphere around him. A safe and lovable one.

"Are you okay? Any twisted ankles?" He ask trying to make a joke at the end.

"No, I think." I say. He gets up and offers me a arm up, I accept it and get up. I see tons of leaves on my outfit ruining it.

"I'll help you get those off. Don't worry I'll leave you to get the ones off your butt." He said before coming to me and wiping/picking them off me. I wipe my butt. Niall gets some off my chest in a appropriate manner.

"Here take my hand so you don't fall or trip again. I will always be here. Plus where we're going isn't that far." He says before holding hands with me and placing me a bit behind him in case I fall again. That way he can try to catch or stop me. His hands are warm and I enjoy the comfort of them. About 20 minutes later we get there and it's a beautiful pond. It's filled with frogs, duckys, a beaver, and other small wildlife. I see a bunny hopping around the pond. I take a video and pictures. Niall and me watch the animals and try to lure the bunny and a squirrel. We watch them.

"I will name the bunny Mr.Hopkins. I used to have a bunny named Mr.Hopkins. He will be his legacy." I say before scooting close to Niall. This all felt surreal. There's no way this is happening. I hear a loud shot and look around. The animals start to disappear by hiding. Niall looks around.

"I think that's a hunter. We should go before we end up in bad trouble. We can visit Mr.Hopkins later, I promise. Let's go now." He says taking my hand.

"Wanna run?" He says walking fast out of there. I look back warily. Niall grabs my hand and walks fast. I am having a hard time keeping up.

"Sure, I guess. Just not when we come across those roots." I say before running. We run out of there and see the roots in the ground. We walk and stay silent the whole time. I come across a rather large root and try to step over it although I let out a moan. Niall stared at me weird. He looks away and bites his lip. I put my hand over my mouth and make sure that noise never comes out.

"I will drop you off. Can we jump over your fence." He ask. I nod. We see my fence and I look at Niall unsure of how to do it.

"I will lift you around your waist and let you cross. Then I will get over." He says before nodding . I reply with a okay. He goes behind me as I go close to the fence. He puts his hands around my waist. He grips them and makes sure they're firm. He counts down from 3 and lifts me. I crawl over and cut myself against the wood. I see a hole in my jeans and sigh. Soon Niall's over and we walk inside. I get him some water and we watch How The Grinch Stole Christmas. At 3, he leaves and I watch it over again. I have a friend!!! Niall Horan is my friend! This isn't real! No way!
