"promise me you will be safe" he said looking into my eyes tears now flowing freely from his eyes. I couldn't get myself to speak so I just nodded. " think of me everyday and whenever you feel alone or lost remember all the good times we had together" he wrapped his arms around my body and rested his chin on my shoulder. we stood like that for a while until my plane was called. " he cupped my face in his hands and passionately kissed me. " I love you so so so much and don't forget that" I nodded " I love you to" I said with a horse voice.

5. Chapter 4

* Niall's pov* 

 I found it sweet that I made her blush because I hugged her. But she is just cute. Like she's embarrassed to be ill and that she has short temper with her neighbours. She's also gorgeous. Her amazing turquoise eyes shine in the light. She always seems so happy like there isn't any worries in the world. I never normally like girls who have short hair but she just suits it. She dresses differently like she doesn't care what people think of her. She's just amazing. 

 I sat down on the sofa next to Lucy. She seemed relieved that I stayed. I was confused because I thought she wanted me to leave. I just forgot about it.  

"sooo what do u wanna do" she asked poking my cheek. I looked at her like she was crazy. Trying to keep a straight face."why are you poking the face?" I said smirking and waving my hands around me. she tried to hold in a laugh but failed. She burst out laughing. I tried not to laugh but after she fell off the sofa I couldn't stop.  We were both laughing, holding our stomach's with tears running down our cheeks."well that wasn't weird" Lucy said still laughing "ha yeah you freak why did you have to touch my face" I said shoving her "what a girl has needs" I looked at her strangely."Omg noo that's not what I meant" she turned bright red. I was laughing at her. "yeah sure it wasn't". " I promise it wasn't!!" she said pouting. " ok fine it wasn't" "haha good. soo what do you wanna do??" she asked. " umm what about watching a film?" I suggested. " Oh my god yeah what film?" " I don't mind" " ok well the  DVD case is over there" she said pointing to a shelf full of DVD's and music " I will go and make the popcorn and drinks" " ok" I said running over to the DVD's trying to pick a film. I didn't really fancy a horror so I chose one what I thought Lucy would like.

After I picked the film I put it in the DVD player and waited for Lucy to come back with the popcorn and drinks. She came back into the room stuffing her face with popcorn.

"oy!! save some for me!" I said as she sat down next to me. I grabbed a huge handful of popcorn and ate it. she laughed " so what film are we watching?" she asked "well I thought you weren't the type of person who didn't like horror movies because by the look of your DVDS you only have one which is Woman in Black and that one isn't that scary. So I though of watching Dear John" I said. I saw a flash of sadness and fear in her eyes when I mentioned it but I didn't really see because it was gone in a second." umm y-yeah sure" she said fiddling with her thumbs. " are you sure you don't seem to keen we can pick another if you like?" " no its ok you want to watch this one so we will watch it" she smiled at me. " ok then" I pressed the play button and the film started.

 

We were up to the bit in the film where John got shot. Lucy was bawling her eyes out. I don't know why its not that sad, well I am a guy so I'm not really a crier. All of a sudden Lucy got up and pressed the stop button pausing the film. " s-sorry I c-couldn't take it anymore" she sobbed. "hey its ok its just a film" I said sitting closer to her and hugging her. " but it isn't tho" I was confused about what she said.

 

 

*Lucy's pov*

I hate Dear John but I didn't wanna say no because Niall had picked the film and he seems so eager to watch it. The film just reminded me of my Dad. During the film I couldn't take watching it so I had to stop it. Niall looked concerned at why I stopped it. He told me that it was just a film but I thought that maybe to him it was but to me it was different. I told him that it wasn't and he just looked confused. I don't know if I should tell him I've only known him for around a day. It is a bit early to tell someone you hardly know half of your life story. But for a weird reason I feel like I can tell Niall anything. I feel safe that he wont judge me or feel sympathy. I hate it when people know my story all they do is feel sorry for me. I know I've been through allot but I don't need reminding. I sighed.      "well whe-" I was interrupted by Niall. " you know you don't have to tell me if you don't want to. I can see that your upset." he said looking into my eyes." no its best that I tell you know because your gonna find out anyway so why not get it over" I smiled. He just nodded and told me to continue. " my father was a solider in the army. when I was 14 he got sent to Afghanistan. He fought in the war for about a year until the week before he was coming home he got shot. h-he um passed away when I was 15." tears started to brim in my eyes. " my mum found out about his passing and couldn't control herself. She started drinking and doing drugs. She wouldn't accept the fact that he died and that he wasn't coming back. About a month after he died my mum committed suicide because she couldn't handle living without my father." I was sobbing now. My hands were shaking and I bet you I looked like a mess. When I finished Niall pulled me into a huge hug. " I'm so sorry for what happened to you and I don't know how it feels to loose a parent but I am always here if you need anyone to talk to." he said still in the hug. I pulled out and looked into his eyes. " thank you again and I'm sorry if I've wrecked the day." "no its fine id rather spend the day here anyway." he smiled. I smiled back. We sat there in silence with me resting my head on his shoulder. I started to feel sleepy so I closed my eyes. I fell into a deep sleep with a smile on my face.
