More Than Just A Friend

Sofie has known Niall since the 7th grade. They have been best friends since. But as they both grow older and mature Niall notices that the love he has for Sofie is more than a friendly kind of love. He's falling in love with her and he knows it, but when Sofie finds out, what will happen to their friendship now? Will Sofie feel the same? Or will their relationship as best friends have an end?


1. The Letter

Chapter One

It was dark out and Sofie just finished her shift at work. She was on her way home when her car stopped in the middle of the road. No one was around to help her. It was pitch black, and the only light was coming from the full moon. Sofie grabbed her phone and called the only person she knew would come get her at that time, her best friend. 

"Hello? Niall?"

"Oh, Hey Sof! What's wrong?"

"Did I wake you?"

"Yea, but that's alright. You just finished work right?"

"Yea, hey... My car stopped near the beach side. On the road I take to go to work. Will you pick me up? Please?"

"Oh. Sure! Hold on. Don't go anywhere! I'll be there in a few."

"Okay. Where would I go anyway? HaHa. Thanks Nialler!"

"No prob. Bye!"

As Sofie waited for Niall in the dark she started to feel a little uneasy. Like someone was watching her. She entered her car, checked if anyone was inside with her, felt better when there was no one, then she locked the doors. While waiting for Niall, her eyes started getting droopy and she decided to take a nap.

*An hour later*

*Buzz* *Buzz*

Sofie woke up to her phone vibrating in her pocket. She checked to see if it was Niall.

From: Niall Horan 

Message: I'm here. Wake up! (: 


To: Niall Horan 

Message: Okay.

She opened the door and went outside. Niall gave her a hug and said...

"Damn. It's cold. You look exhausted and your house is still pretty far, so why won't you just stay at my house tonight. I'll just call a friend to get your car in the morning." 

"Okay. Doesn't matter to me." 

"Great! Sleepover! Lets go." 

Sofie entered Niall's car and they headed off to his house.

"It's an hour and a half ride. Why won't you take a nap? I'll wake you when we get there." 


She woke up to the touch of Niall's fingers slowly tracing her face.

"Wake up lovely. We're here." 

"Oh. Thanks Niall." 

"Hold on its raining out. I'll just run in and grab you an umbrella." 

"No. It's fine. I'll just follow behind you. 

"No. Stay here. I don't want you to get sick. I'll be right back."

Before she could reply Niall left, and in minutes he was back soaking wet. He opened the door for her and walked her to the front porch, his hand on her waist the entire time. She was blushing, hoping that he wouldn't see her, but he did.

"A-are you bl-blushing?" 

"What? No!" 

"Well, it looks like it. Do you not want me to hold your waist?" 

"N-no. It's not th-that. Ugh. Nevermind. Can we just get in? I'm soaking wet!" 

"Oh. Right! Sorry! HaHa." 

Niall walked Sofie inside and turned on the lights. His dog, Max, ran to the door to greet them.

"Hi Maxie! Aww! I missed you too boy!" 

"Wow! He still remembers you." 

"HaHa. I know. It's been awhile since I've been here." 

"Yea. Pretty long time... Anyway, you want some hot chocolate?" 

"Yes Please!" 

"Haha, okay. I'll be back in a jiffy. I'll just get those done."

Niall left the room to make the 2 hot chocolates, and a bowl of warm milk for Max. While he was gone Sofie decided to go through scrapbooks that the both of them made a few years back. She reached the end of one of the scrapbooks and saw an extra page. It was taped over the back cover. She opened it and saw a 3 page letter (front-to-back) written for her. On the top right corner was a picture of Sofie and Niall. She read the letter and then realized something she wasn't ready to find out.

"Niall's in love? Wi-with me? But we're best friends."
