7. That Night .


Niall's P.O.V.

“I find it weird that you didn’t say no right off the bat, A. You told me you loved me just four days ago. I hope you tell him you do because it’s obvious you don’t know if you love me. Erm… I-I should get going, I promised Harry I would help him with his math. I’ll see you at school.” Marcel gathered his things, rather fast, before Aria could say anything against it.

“Marcel!” she yelled as he nearly ran towards her front door, “Marcel!” she yelled again but he was gone. 

"Are you okay?" I looked at Aria.

"Yeah. I'm fine, he just needs his space, I guess." She gave me a smile but I could see the tears she was holding back. I walked over to where she was and hugged her.

"It'll be fine." I tried to comfort her.

"Thanks." she smiled.

"No problem."

"Sit back down, we have a lot of catching up to do,” she laughed.

"We do!" I laughed, "How are you, you know after your mother’s death?" 

"Um, I've been okay. Just dealing with it has been tough on my father. He has tried dating again but he always ends up saying that nobody will ever make him as happy as my mother." she smiled.

Aria knew my brother had killed her mother; we were on our first actual date as a couple when it happened. It was partially my fault, but Aria knew that it was nothing but an accident. She knew she had agreed on taking the risk.  It happened right in front of us. I still get horrible nightmares about it.

Flashback

"I have a surprise for you, A." I grinned.

"I told you no more surprises Ni. The last time you surprised me, we went to a Coldplay concert. Front row and backstage passes. That was an insane thing you did."

"I remember that night, it was the night I asked you to be my girlfriend." I smiled, remembering her face when she saw 'Be my girlfriend, A?' on the screen over the stage. She nearly cried. "Plus babe, it was no biggie, my brother is friends with their drummer."

"I know but it just proved how insane you are."

"Just please, one more surprise." I gave her a cheeky smile. She leaned over to my side of the car.

"You're insane." she whispered in my ear before kissing my cheek. I grinned.

"I'll take that as a yes."

I drove into the city to find a 1950s diner that I knew she would love.

"Niall, oh my god. This is the cutest diner ever." she gasped.

"I knew you'd love it." I said, helping her out of my car. "See, this surprise isn't insane." I laughed.

"That doesn't mean you aren't insane." she wrapped her arms around my waist and looked up at me. My height towered over her short height. 

"Insane for you, maybe." I smiled down at her, leaned down and pressed my lips on hers. I grinned and picked her up.

"Ni! Put me down." she giggled.

"Never!" I shouted.

I finally set her down inside the restaurant. We walk towards an empty booth and a blonde woman that looked in her mid-20's walked up to us.

"Hello, my name is Katie and I will be your waiter for the night. Would you like anything to drink?" She smiled.

"Can we have a large chocolate milkshake with two straws." I smiled at her.

"Sure. I will be back with that in a minute." She smiled and walked away.

"One milkshake and two straws Ni?" she giggled.

"Yes." I grinned proudly.

"I feel like we're in the 1950's." She smiled at me, "I like it."

"So we're sort of a couple from the 1950's?" I smiled back. She gave me a small nod.

"Here you go, if you need anything else let me know." the waitress, Katie, smiled at us. We both nodded.

"Thank you." We both said in unison. I smiled at Aria.

“Copy-cat.” I laughed.

“No, you are. Now are we going to drink this milkshake or argue about who’s the copy cat?” she raised her eyebrows.

“Both.” I smiled. As I reached for my straw but the milkshake was quickly taken from my hand.

“It’s all mine.” Aria smiled at me and started to drink it. I reached for it but she refused to let me have any.

“Babe, c’mon. Let me have some.” I said, giving her my best puppy dog face.

“Dammit Horan, you have such an adorable face.” She smiled. “Who could resist it, I definitely can’t.”

“Thank you. You’re very adorable yourself.” I gave her a cheeky smile, which she happily returned.

I took some of the whipped cream off of the milkshake with my finger and put it on her nose.

“Niall, you’re so mean.” She laughed and took some of the whipped cream with her finger and smeared it on my cheek.

“Lick it off.” I laughed.

“Ewwww, no.” She scrunched her nose.

“Fine.” I started to pretend cry.

“Aw, Ni. Don’t cry.” She giggled and pecked my cheek.

“You hurt my feelings.” I said, still pretending to cry.

“How can I ever make it up to you?” she pouted.

“Kiss me.” I looked up at her. She smiled and pressed her lips against mine.

“I love you.” I said, my lips still hovering over hers.

“I love you too.” She replied.

We finished our milkshake and I called the waitress. She gave me the bill and I paid.

“Thank you.” I said.

We began to get up as the waitress walked away but she turned around and came back to where we were standing. I walked over to Aria and intertwined our fingers together. The waitress cleared her throat.

“Yes?” Aria smiled at her.

"Oh umm, I just wanted to say, you two are incredibly cute together. I saw the way you two were acting outside before you came in and I was observing you both while you were here, the way you both look at each other is impossible to miss, he loves you and you love him. I know you probably have said it to each other before but when you see the way you look at each other from my point of view, you’d understand. You both aren’t just saying that you love each other, you actually mean it. I think everyone in this diner agrees with me." She smiled at Aria.

“Oh my god, thank you so much. I’ve never had anyone tell me that I look so in love. Must be because I never actually felt what love is until Ni came into my life.” Aria replied. I grinned.

“You’re absolutely right, I do love her. I’m not just saying it, I mean it.” I finally spoke up. I smiled and pecked Aria’s cheek and then my phone started ringing, I looked at the caller ID and my breath caught in my throat, my eyes grew wide.

“Babe, you okay?” Aria said, looking up at me.

“Huh? Yea. Sorry, I need to take this. You stay here with Katie, I’ll take this outside.”

“Okay, I’ll be out in a bit.” She smiled. I walked outside of the diner and took the call.

“Hello,”

“Niall, Niall, Niall. Do you have my money?”

“No, I don’t have it yet man. Give me a coup-“

“No. I told you that I needed it by tonight.”

“I don’t have your money.”

“But you have a girl.” My fists grew tighter.

“You won’t get the girl.”

“Why?”

“She’s not like the others.”

“You’re in love.”

“I don’t fall in love, not anymore.”

“Alright, well we have her mother.”

“W-what?”

“We have the girls mother.”

“You’re lying. I-I don’t believe you.” I began to stutter.

“You need proof?” I heard faint shouts.

“Aria, Aria! Please help me. Niall, please!”

“Bring the money to the alley behind the gym by 11 p.m. or we kill her.” He hung up. I looked at the clock on my phone, 9:45.

“Crap.” I whispered to myself. I quickly dialed my brother’s number.

“Hello.”

“Meet me in front of the gym in an hour, bring the money and the gun. Kevin has her mother.” I heard him silently curse. But he agreed.

“Hey babe.” I heard Aria walking out of the diner and making her way towards me. I turned around. “W-what happened to your hands?”

I looked at my hands, blood began to drip from the wounds my nails had impressed to my palm.

“I… um… nothing babe. Let’s just get you home. Okay?”

“No. Who were you on the phone with? What made you so mad that caused you to hurt yourself?”

“My brother. It’s nothing.”

“Is everything okay?”

“Stop asking me so many fucking questions, everything’s fine! Just get in the damn car.” I raised my voice. Her eyes widened but then showed hurt and… fear.

“You’ve never cussed or raised your-“ tears started forming the rim of her hazel eyes. “Um, n-never mind. S-sorry… just take me home please.” She whispered, faintly but loud enough for me to hear. She began to walk to the car.

“A, I…” I walked behind her and put my hand on her shoulder. She winced when I made contact. “You’re afraid of me?”

She wiped the tears now falling from her eyes and looked at me.

“No. I just- take me home Niall.” She said and got into the car. I cursed myself and got into the car. I turned on the ignition and began to drive. The car ride was silent so I turned on the radio. I looked over to her side and saw she fell asleep. Her phone screen suddenly lit up with a text message:

 

From: Unknown, To: Aria

Tell your boyfriend to bring the money at 11 or we kill your mother sweetheart.

 

My eyes grew wide. I quickly pulled the car over and carefully took her phone off of her lap and deleted the message. But before I could place it back, she started waking up.

“Why’d you stop driving and what are you doing with my phone?”

“I… I need to tell you something.”

“Okay. Go for it.” She said bluntly. She still made no eye contact with me; instead she looked out of the window.

“I owe a guy money… that’s who called me inside the diner.”

“Why do you owe him money?” Still no eye contact.

“He leant me the money for my brother.”

“Okay. Why are you telling me this?” she said, annoyance in her tone.

“He wants the money tonight and I told him I don’t have it. He wanted you in exchange for the money he let me borrow.”

Her eyes grew wide but she still didn’t dare look at me, she kept her eyes locked on the road in front of us.

“I told him that he wouldn’t get you. Now, I’m going to tell you something but you can’t get mad or anything, just hear me out. I have a plan.”

“Shoot.” She said.

“Wait,” I got out of my car and opened her car door.

“What are you doing?”

“Making sure you don’t run out on me and that you hear me out.” I closed the door and jogged back to the driver’s side.

“It’s sad how you don’t trust me.”

“It’s not, it’s just I know that this subject is delicate and I’m afraid that once you find out, you’ll hate me or run out and I won’t be able to see you again.”

“You’re starting to worry me, spit it out Horan.”

“Okay. A, he said you wanted you, I said no. He… um… He has your mother.”

“W-what? You can’t be serious, please tell me you’re joking Niall.” Tears were now again forming in her eyes. I hated seeing her cry.

“I wish I was babe.”

“Unlock the door.” She yelled, tears were now running down her cheeks.

“No, you said you wouldn’t run.”

“Niall, please. Open the fucking door, god dammit!”

“No.” I said, “I’m going to get your mother back.”

“Ni-Niall please. Bring her back safe and unharmed. Please.” She whispered in between the tears, but she still wasn’t looking at me.

“I will.”

“I want to come with you,” she said.

“I’m not sure that’ll be-”

“I wan to come with you,” she repeated.

“Okay babe.” I said, turning on the ignition and beginning to drive again. The car ride became silent.

“What’s your plan.” She finally spoke up.

“My brother’s going to help me.”

“Oh, okay.”

Silence grew again. We finally reached the gym and I found my brother standing outside.

“Stay here.” I said.

“I have no choice, you locked my door, remember.” I chuckled.

“Right.” I responded getting out of the car. I closed my door behind me and made my way towards my brother.

“Hey.”

“Dammit Niall, why the fuck did you bring the girl. You know this complicates things.”

“I know, but she insisted on coming and she wasn’t going to take no for an answer.”

“I guess, now we can give her to him instead of the money.”

“He isn’t getting the girl.”

“Why not? She’s what he wants.”

“She’s different, she’s special.”

“Fine, let’s go give him the money.”

“Did you bring the guns?”

He lifted up his shirt revealing the weapon. I took a hold of mine. I looked back at my car and saw Aria was on her phone. Her eyes grew wide as she read something. She looked up and saw me looking at her, then her eyes flicked to my hand, seeing he weapon. She began to struggle to get out of the car but I clicked the button and locked it so there was no way anyone could get in or get out. I looked back at my brother.

“Good, let’s do this.”

We began to walk towards the alley.

“You came, I thought you weren’t going to come.” Kevin laughed.

“Shut the fuck up Kevin, we weren’t going to let her mother die.” I said.

“Ah, so this is about the girl. What’s wrong Niall, too afraid to admit you love her?” he chuckled.

“N-no, she’s just important. Leave her and her mother out of this.” I spat.

“You have the money?”

“I have it.” James finally spoke up and threw the black bag on the floor.

“Count it.” He yelled at someone. A guy walked towards the bag and began to count it. I looked at Kevin and his focus wasn’t on me anymore it was on something behind me.

“I see you brought the girl. She’s a pretty one, isn’t she?” He smirked.

“You aren’t getting her!” I shouted.

“I don’t want the money, Horan. I want the girl or her mother dies.”

“I said; you aren’t going to lay a finger on her.” I spoke threw gritted teeth.

“Go get her, we’ll let her decide.” He laughed. I sighed. “I said; go get her Horan!”

I turned my back and walked towards my car. I unlocked the doors and opened her side of the car.

“W-where’s my mother?” she stuttered.

“C’mon babe, get out.” I said, offering my hand so I could help her out. She took it and I closed the door behind her. I turned back to see her playing with my fingers that were now intertwined with hers. I leaned down and put my lips next to her ear.

“Stay behind me and don’t answer any of his questions.” I whispered. She nodded. I pressed my forehead against hers and looked at her for a second. I finally pressed my lips on hers then on her forehead before turning around and walking back towards the alley.

“There she is.” I saw Kevin grin and looking at her from head to toes. “I definitely want her.”

She stood behind me and her grip on my hand tightened when she heard him say that.

“You aren’t getting her.” I repeated.

“C’mon Niall, let me have some fun with her. I can imagine the things I’ll do to her.”

“Kevin, I said; you aren’t going to get her! Take the money and give us her mother. She shouldn’t have to be going through this.” I said.

“It’s the girl or her mother’s life. Your choice Horan.” I heard Aria gasp.

“I-I’ll go with you, just let my mother go.” I heard her whisper. My eyes grew wide and I turned to look at her.

“A, no. You aren’t going with him; he won’t lay a finger on you. I told you not to answer any of his questions.”

“Good. Bring her mother.” I heard Kevin say. I turned around to see her mother now standing before us. Her hands were duck taped together and tears marked her face, bruises all over her body.

“M-mom.” I heard Aria say.

“A-aria, sweetie.”

Kevin turned to remove the taped from Aria’s mom’s wrists. I turned to look at James who had been quiet about this; he was whispering something to Aria.

“I’m gonna take my chances and shoot. I might miss though.”

Aria nodded.

“Please, take your chances, just kill him.” She now had tears in her eyes.

“W-what, no.” I whispered. “He might miss and hit your mother.”

“Niall, my mother has been suffering from cancer for a long time now. If he hits her, it’ll stop her suffering and I won’t have to see her suffer from a slow painful death, if he doesn’t hit her she’s going to leave me here, alone soon anyways. P-please just let him take the risk, please. I don’t want to see my mother die in Kevin’s hands.”

“Y-you never told me.” I whispered. That’s when I heard a gun go off. Not once but three times. Aria jumped at the sound.

“Shit.” James cursed. I turned to see Kevin’ lifeless body on the floor and two other bodies on the floor as well. James ran off.

“Mom…” I heard Aria say and run towards her mother’s body that was now on the floor. “Mom!”

I walked towards her.

“S-she’s dead.” She stuttered as tears fell down her cheeks. I put my arm around her and hugged her tight.

“I’m sorry.” I whispered. We stayed there until the ambulance and police came. She cried all night.

End of Flashback

***

I remember her crying for days because I stayed at her house until she was feeling better.

The third, forth and fifth days were the worst; she just sat on her bed all day, staring at her wall for three days straight. She refused to eat anything. Denial.

“A, I’m sorry about that night.” I finally spoke up.

“No, Ni. Death was near for her. I agreed to take the risk and I don’t regret it. Kevin is now dead and can’t harm you or James and I don’t think I would’ve been able to watch my mother suffer from cancer. When you talk to James again tell him to come back, I miss him and I want to see him.” Tears were now visible in her eyes. I wrapped my arms around her. And pressed my lips against the top of her head.

“I love you.” I whispered. She looked up at me and opened her lips as if she was about to speak, but before she could respond, I pressed my lips against hers.

 

She hasn’t seen James since that day.

He’s gotten worse after that night.

Only, he wasn’t with my mother; he’s in jail.
