Do you Promise?

Alyssa is abused at home, bullied at school, and doesn't have many friends. One day she runs away from home and right into the arms of a blonde-haired, blue-eyed Irish boy. But what happens when others fall for her? And what about the past she left at home?


9. Truly, Madly, Deeply

Aly's P.O.V:

Niall's mouth formed an 'o' when he saw what was in the house.zayn had jumped out from behind the huge TV and flicked on the lights. Harry and Louis jumped out from behind the couch, dressed as superheroes. Louis was Superman and Harry was Iron Man. Louis screamed, "CARROT PRINCESS, YOU'RE HERE!!" Then Liam jumped off the balcony overlooking the living room and landed right in front of Harry. He was dressed as Batman. Then, all together, they sang the Happy Birthday song, which sounded amazing because they put a little rap into it and they all had amazing voices. 

Niall's face was red, and he was still speechless. To get him out of shock, I stood on my tiptoes and planted a kiss on his nose. He looked at me and smiled that cute little smile of his, and all the boys cheered. They each gave him a huge hug, congratulating him on coming home on his birthday. Liam pulled my arm. "C'mon already! It's time for gifts!" Which then prompted Niall to put in, "Yeah and then cake!" I laughed, realizing that this was the first carefree conversation I had in a long time. I absolutely loved Niall. I watched as he tore at Zayn's present like a little kid. It was, of course, two packs of Double Stuf Oreos. Harry presented his, which ended up being a shirt with a magnet on it saying 'Chick Magnet.' Niall blushed, but I giggled. Only Harry. After all the presents were opened, Niall had his Oreos, the shirt, a huge carrot cake made to look like a carrot from Louis, and new cologne and a gift card to Nandos from Liam. Then, I pulled out my present. 

I also pulled out my guitar. The present to him was me singing. I sang the song "Truly Madly Deeply" by One Direction. He never knew I could play guitar either, so that was also a present. 

"Am I asleep Am I awake Or am I somewhere in between 

i can't believe that you are here and lying next to me

Or did I dream that we were perfectly entwined 

Like branches on a tree or twigs caught on a vine"

I looked at Liam as I sang his part, and he was just sitting there in awe. I blushed, but continued on. Niall watched me, his face yet again completely baffled. I sang his part in the best Irish accent I could manage. I also changed the lyrics a little bit. 

"Like all those days and weeks and months 

I wanted you to know

And all those sleepless nights and daydreams where I pictured this

I'm just a worthless girl who finally got the guy

And I'm not ashamed to tell it to the world!"

I looked up again and the boys were all staring intently at me. Suddenly, Harry and Louis joined in with me. I looked at Niall the entire time.

"Truly, madly, deeply I am

Foolishly, completely falling

And somehow you kicked all my walls in

So, baby, say you'll always keep me

Truly, madly, crazy, deeply in love with you

In love with you"

Louis and Harry stopped singing, and Liam started.

"Should I put coffee and granola on a tray in bed

And wake you up with all the words I still haven't said

And tender touches just to show you how I feel

Or should I act so cool, like it was no big deal"

The boys all sang at their parts, but softly, so that Niall could hear me.

"Wish I could freeze this moment in a frame and stay like this

I'll put this day back on replay and keep reliving it

'Cause here's the tragic truth, if you don't feel the same

My heart would fall apart if someone said your name


Truly, madly, deeply

Foolishly, completely falling

And somehow you kicked all of my walls in

So baby say you'll always keep me


I hope I'm not a casualty

I hope you won't get up and leave

Might not mean that much to you

But to me it's everything


Truly, madly, deeply I amFoolishy, completely fallingAnd somehow you kicked all my walls inSo baby say you’ll always keep meTruly, madly, crazy, deeply in love (in love)With you (with you)In love (in love)With you (with you)In love (in love)With you (with you)"

Once I finished, Niall pulled me up off of my chair, and gave me a long, wonderful kiss. He whispered into my ear, "That was the best singing I have ever heard." I blushed, and looked down. He then tilted my head up so that I was looking into his eyes, and softly sang Bruno Mars song Just The Way You Are. Once the boys realized what he was singing, they all joined in. I looked around at each of them as they sang. When they caught my eyes, they all smiled. This was my family now, and Niall was my only comfort in this cruel world.

Later that night, after the festivities were over, we were all sitting on the couch talking and watching Finding Nemo. I was exhausted. I dropped my head onto Niall's shoulder, and almost fell asleep, until he stood up. I looked at him wearily, too tired to wonder why he stood up. The next thing I knew, I was being swept off the couch and into Niall's arms. I looked up at him, with his blue eyes, and smiled. Then I snuggled into his Armani Mania cologne and the warmth of his chest. He walked upstairs and laid me down on his bed. I sat up, telling him that I needed my pajamas. He smiled, and pulled out an old shirt of his and a pair of sweatpants. I went into the bathroom and got changed.

When I came back, Niall was laying on his bed with a pair of sweatpants, but no shirt. I had never seen him shirtless before, and man did he have abs. He had a full six pack and no fat at all. I was surprised, because he ate all the time. He saw me staring at him and his face got red. "Do you want me to put a shirt on? Am I making you uncomfortable?" he asked. He was so sweet, thinking of me. I smiled and said, "No, its fine. I like this view." He laughed his amazing Irish laugh, and I crawled into the bed beside him.He wrapped one arm around my shoulders and pulled me closer so that my head was in the spot between his arm and his chest. I tentatively laid my arm over his stomach, feeling his warmth.

He started playing with my hair, and every so often would kiss me on the head. I fell asleep like this, not wanting to ever move.

Niall's P.O.V:

Aly was amazing. Just beautifully perfect. Her laugh was adorable, and her voice was amazing! I was in shock while she sang, watching her delicate fingers strum the guitar with practiced ease. I would be willing to bet that she can play just as well as me, or better. But, anyway, when she sang that song that our group had made a couple weeks ago, my heart just melted. The song took on an entirely different meaning. Just like the song said, I was truly, madly, deeply in love with her.

Once she was done, we both stood up, and I grabbed her face and tilted it up and kissed her soft lips. "That was the most amazing singing I have ever heard." I sincerely meant it, too. Then, she blushed and looked down. She always does that. It's just one of her little things that I find adorable. Filled with emotion, I then sang Bruno Mars Just The Way You Are to her. I poured all of my love, passion, and adoration into those words. I've never felt this strongly about a girl like I do about her.

Later, during my favorite movie of all time (Finding Nemo), she softly laid her head on my shoulder. Realizing she was tired, I picked her up, letting her snuggle into my arms. She looked so peaceful when she was tired, not like the scared, fearful, stressed girl I had seen in the woods today. I carried her up to my bedroom. I could have taken her to her bedroom, but I didn't want her to have another nightmare. I wanted to keep her safe in my arms. Once I laid her down on my bed, I carefully sank down into the mattress and she sat up. She wanted her pajamas. Just like me, she loved to be comfortable at night.

I grabbed her one of my shirts that I wear to bed and a pair of my old sweatpants. She went and got changed. It was really hot, so I decided to take my shirt off, but wear sweatpants in case I got cold. She walked back in, blushing again. That's when I realized that she had never seen me with my shirt off. I blushed, too, slapping myself mentally for not thinking about her. "Do you want me to put a shirt on? Am I making you uncomfortable?" I said, concerned. She shook her head, her messy bun bobbing around.  "No, it's fine. I like this view." I laughed. She had such a cute sense of humor. I uncovered a spot for her on my bed, and she crawled in, cuddling up next to me. Every time she did that, it gave me chills. I wrapped one arm around her tiny shoulders, pulling her closer. She laid her head between my arm and chest. We didn't talk, just took in the warmth and love between us.

Bored, I began playing with her hair, and every so often kissing her head. I wanted to show her that without words, I was here for her. I soon felt her steady breathing, and realized that she had fallen asleep. Quietly, I whispered, "I love you so much, princess." Soon after, I fell asleep, wrapping my arms around her.

Harry's P.O.V:

I know it's wrong. I know I told the other boys no. But I couldn't help how hard I was falling for Aly. I knew it was just going to be a matter of time. When she sang to Niall, that sealed it. I am helplessly in love with Alyssa. I feel so guilty. I mean, she's my mate's girl, and my best friend. But this is so much more than the one night stands that I had with other girls. She was perfect, and every time Niall kissed her, or hugged her, or even smiled at her, a little piece of my heart broke off.

I couldn't deal with this. Monday, when school started, I would tell her how I felt about her. I know she'll just dismiss the feelings, and we probably won't be as good of friends, but I'm willing to take the risk. This is bad. This is terribly, terribly bad.

I've fallen head over heels for Aly. I'm truly, madly, deeply, foolishly in love with her.

Louis's P.O.V:

I can't stand to see Harry look at her that way. She's Niall's. He even told us that from the beginning. I have feelings for her, but it's more like older-brother feelings. That is definitely not what Harry's thinking. I need to stop him before he gets too far. She can't go through this right now. Not when her boyfriend just got out of the hospital. He'll just get broken, and I can't let him do that to himself. Aly is happy, wonderfully happy, with Niall. Not Harry. So he needs to get that out of his system.

If I don't stop him, he'll try to go farther than Niall does. I can trust Niall, he can respect a girl's boundaries. But Harry? He'll try any way he can to go all the way. Aly cannot have to deal with that. Plus, we don't know enough about her past. If she was raped, how will she feel if Harry does the same to her? She's innocent, and I need to warn Harry. I will protect her and Niall's relationship. Plus, I can see that Niall needs her, too. He was already funny and weird, but she just makes him even happier and more joyful.

Harry can't date her. Ever.

Liam's P.O.V:

I wish I would have seen Aly before Niall did in that alleyway three weeks ago. She is starting to come out of her shell, and she's the perfect girl. She's sweet, and carefree, but has a lot in her past. I wish I was the one she'd wake up to, and the one to kiss her lips. I know Harry said we can't date her, since she's Niall's, but I can't help my feelings. At times, she's quiet, like me, and others, she comes out of her shell and cries about her past. I'm just as sensitive as she is. When I saw her on the alley, I wanted to hold her tight and promise her that I would die before I'd let anyone hurt her. She is why I wake up every morning. My heart was stolen, but I'm afraid it's going to get broken. I'll hold back for a while and see if she'll ever feel the same about me.

I've fallen in love, forbidden love. 

Zayn's P.O.V:

Aly. Her name sounds like a melody to me. Her name perfectly fits her brilliant smile, her beautiful eyes, and her wonderful personality. I can tell she's a risk-taker, like me. Yeah, she loves Niall, but how long will it really last? When they end, I'll be the shoulder for her to cry on. I'll be the one she comes running to, the one she'll need. I need her in my life, more than just a friend. I want her so badly, sometimes I cry. I know I won't have her, though, at least not for a while. 

But somehow I'll tell her that I love her, just not while Niall's around.
