Night Owl

Chloe isn't your average girl. She stays in her house all day, and only goes out at night. One night, she meets a boy at the dock where she goes to think. Who is it and why is he there?


1. Who are you?

The moon was high in the night sky, and I was making my way down to the pier. The pier is where I think. I think about everything. I noticed a figure sitting on the end of the dock where I usually sat. I had never seen anyone near the dock this late before, so I walked over slowly. I cleared my throat quietly and spoke. "E-excuse me?" I asked. The person jumped and whipped around to me. They were in a hoodie, black to be exact. The moonlight shone on their face and it appeared that they were crying. "What's wrong?" I asked softly. The person turned back to the ocean, and tapped the spot next to them. I sat down, and looked at them. They pulled their hood down, and the person had messy blonde hair and bright blue eyes. "Are you okay?" I asked. The person shook their head. "I'm not." They said. "Not at all."

The person was a boy with an Irish accent. He sighed. "I'm sorry, I'm rude for not introducing myself." He said and looked at me. "I'm Niall." He said, extending his hand so I could shake it. "Chloe." I said, shaking his hand. I took a long look at Niall, and he seemed very familiar. "Hey, aren't you in that band? One Direction?" I asked. Niall sniffled and nodded. "Yeah, but it sucks, you know?" He said. I shook my head. "I don't understand. Why does it suck? You're rich, famous and everyone loves you!" I said smiling. Niall shook his head, making my smile fade. "No, nobody loves me!!" Niall cried, putting his head into his hands. I felt tears come to my eyes. He could he think such a thing? "Niall..." I started. I sighed. "I love you." I said. Niall looked at me. "You do?" He asked. I nodded. "And there isn't a single thing I would change about you, not a single thing. Your hair, your eyes, and your laugh, they all make my day." I took in a breath.

"I can't believe I'm saying this, but I love you Niall. Ever since my cousin showed me your picture, I knew I was in love. You're perfect. I don't understand what people don't like in you. There's nothing not to like, I mean, sure, everyone has flaws, but you're just perfect." I felt myself starting to cry towards the end of my speech. Niall looked at me. "So...I shouldn't kill myself?" He asked. I shook my head, starting to cry even more. "No!!! Please don't do that!!!" I begged. Niall nodded and smiled a little. "Chloe, I think I love you too..." He said. I looked at him, shocked that he even remembered my name. "No," I said. "You can't love me!" Niall looked at me, head crooked like a puppy's. "You'll disappoint so many girls." I said. Niall shook his head. "They know I've been suicidal, and they've done nothing to help me, every time I ask for help, they ask for a follow on Twitter!" Niall said through gritted teeth.

I was speechless. I never knew people could be so heartless. Niall sighed. "The guys said I should get help, because there's nothing they can do other than take my blades away, but I think I found someone who can help me." He said. I looked at Niall. "Who's that?" I asked. "You." He replied. I was shocked. "Me?" I asked. Niall nodded. "Y-you think you can help me?" Niall asked. I smiled and nodded. Niall hugged me and I hugged him back. He hugged me with such force that he knocked me down. He lay on top of me and he smiled. "I love you, Chloe." Niall whispered. "I love you more." I whispered back. He helped me up, and we sat on the dock for a while. Finally, I spoke up. I asked the question I had been dying to ask. "Niall, will you stop cutting?" I asked. "For me?" Niall looked at me and nodded. "Promise?" I asked. Niall nodded. "Promise." He leaned in and we sealed our promise with a kiss.

The kiss was long and sweet. We both pulled back for air, and we were looking into each others eyes. My phone dinged in my pocket telling me that I had to get home. “I’d better go.” I mumbled. Niall nodded. “Me too.” he said. We got up and Niall held my hand. We walked to where the boats were and the rest of One Direction were scrambling to look for Niall. “Guys! He’s over here!” Liam yelled. They all dashed to Niall and pulled him into a big hug. “Who’s this?” Harry asked. I blushed. “This is Chloe.” Niall introduced me. “She’s going to help me.” I waved shyly. “You’re going to help him stop cutting?” Liam asked. I nodded. “Trust me, guys. She’s perfect.” Niall said smiling. “He’s smiling!” Louis exclaimed. “Okay, you can help Niall.” Zayn said. I smiled. “But, on one condition.” Niall said. I turned to him. “You have to be my girlfriend.”

I looked at Niall, shocked out of my mind. Niall smiled and I grinned. “Fine.” I said giggling a little. Niall was smiling from ear to ear. Niall hugged me and Harry clapped, making everyone laugh. “I’d better get home. My parents are going to be mad if I don’t leave now.” I said. Niall nodded. “Before you go...” He grabbed my hand and yanked a pen from his pocket. He quickly scribbled his number on my palm and I smiled. “I’ll text you.” I said. Niall nodded. He pecked me on the lips and I walked off. Niall and the boys went the opposite way of me, and when they were out of earshot, I said to myself, “I love Niall Horan!”

(A/N: If you don't like what I have, please tell me, I can change it. I write as I go along, so this is what happens when I'm up at 2 in the morning. Again, please tell me what you think. Thank you!!<3)
