13. Chapter Twelve

I giggled as Niall brushed his nose against mine. A small smile crept on his face. It's been about five days that we have been here. And those five days have been the best days of my life. Niall and I were perfect and my bond with the family growing stronger and stronger. I brought my head up to Niall's chest as I laid with him in the middle of the tulip field. As I rested my head on his chest I could hear his soft heart beat.

"What are you thinking about?" He asked softly.

"Your heart." I said honestly. His chest moved up and down. I felt his legs move from under me.

"Sit up." He said. I did as I was told and moved from my position to kneeling beside him. He curled his knees to his chest. "Stand in front of my feet." He said. I did so, standing in front of his feet that were up. His feet were placed near my abdomen. He held both my hands and I leaned in. Before I knew it I was up in the air supported by his feet that were holding me up. I panicked for a second thinking I was gonna fall. "I got you." Niall said holding my hands tighter. I looked in his affectionate eyes and trusted him with all my heart. I laughed as he moved his legs up and down making me move also. His feet tickled my stomach. I laughed so much I fell right on his chest. We both laughed until our faces were red.

Soon when the laughing dialed down I took one look at Niall. One long hard look at Niall. His face was perfect and upon his lips was a soft, smooth smirk. But his small smirk turned into a frown and my face did also.

"Whats the matter?" He asked.

"What's that?" I asked as I could see from where we were, a familiar small tan car pulled up the driveway. Reality hit me as she stepped out. Her small high heels hitting the floor. We could hear from where we were. Niall stood up with a worried look. He extended his hand to help me off the ground. Once I was up I immediately hooked onto his arms with both hands. He looked at me and planted a sweet, calming kiss on my lips.

"Everything's gonna be fine, yeah?" I just nodded.

I was so nervous. What if she was here to take me back? That means I have to leave.

Michelle's P.O.V.

I jumped as I heard the doorbell ring. I giggled to myself imagining how I looked like being all frazzled. I set the bowl of fruit and book I had in my hand on the table and walked to the door to answer.

"Ni, I told you to use the.. back door.. you?" I asked shocked.

"Hello Michelle. Remember me? I dropped Cassie off here."

"Yes. I-I remember. Um, please come in." I said opening the door wider. She stepped in and looked around.

"I thought you were back at the house but neighbors told me you were on Thanksgiving break." She said taking a seat at the dining table. She set her small purse on the table and folded her hands around her legs in a very classy manner.

"Oh, I'm sorry, I should have called." I informed. "Thirsty?" I asked.

"Oh no thank you dear." She said looking around. Our heads both turned towards the door when hearing it close. We looked and saw Niall and Cassie there. Cassie was holding on to Niall like a lost child that was terrified. "Cassie, how wonderful to see you. And you young man, I don't think I have met you." The agency lady said in a very prissy way. Niall and Cassie walked slowly toward her. Niall extended his hand introducing himself.

"This is Niall. My son." I said.

"Nice to meet you." He said very seriously. The agency lady nodded and turned toward Cassie.

"Remember me?" She asked with a wide almost scary smile. Cassie nodded and hid behind Niall's shoulder. He grabbed Cassie and didn't let go. I saw his firm grip tighten. "So I came here with good news." She said cheerful. I took a seat and Niall and Cassie stood in the same position. "Cassie, your parents are ready to take you back. The agency set me over to get you, isn't that exciting!?" She said with a smile. I could see in Cassie's eyes were fear and anxiety. But before anyone could say anything she ran. She ran up the stairs to her room.

"Cassie!" Niall called after her, following her up to the room.

"Mum?" A little voice said behind me. I turned to see Daisy. "What's going on?" She asked.

"Go to your room Daisy."

"But I-"

"Go!" I said sternly. She walked to her room. Before she closed the door she nodded to me. I know she understood.

"Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear." The agency lady said flicking her short blonde hair to the side. "Wasn't that shocking."

Cassie's P.O.V

Go back? Go back? But I don't want to go back. Back to abuse, fear and trauma. I can't. I cried into my pillow. My sobs filled the room.

"Cassie please open the door." I heard Niall say. I ran up and opened the door quickly and embraced him in my arms. Not letting go. I cried in his chest. He walked a little farther in the room and closed the door not letting me go.

"I d-don't want t-to g-go back." I sobbed.

"I know baby, I know." He said kissing the top of my forehead. He cupped my face in his large hands looking in my eyes. "They aren't taking you away from me." He said.

"B-But she h-has to." I cried.

"She won't." He said sternly. "Not without a fight she wont." He let go of me and ran down the stairs back to the agency lady.

"Ni!" I shouted back after him. I followed him down the stairs trying to get as close as possible to him but he was to fast. He ran to the dining area and froze. When I finally caught up I could see it too. The lady was just about to hand Shelly the papers to let me go. Before I could think Niall got into the scene and snatched the papers from her hand.

"You're not taking her." He said.

"Niall, don't." I said putting my hand on his shoulder.

"I want you to know young man that this is uncivilized behavior."

"I don't care, you're not taking her back." He said. His eyes grew dark and his jaw tightened. His hand held the paper so tight that you could see the veins in his arms and hands.

"Niall please." I started to cry again.

"No! She isn't taking you!" He yelled. This was the loudest I have ever heard him yell. It frightened me. The agency lady walked toward me. Niall pushed me behind him.

"Okay listen. You're just a boy. You don't understand what it's like. Her family, the ones who raised her, are taking her back whether you like it or not." She said sternly.

"She doesn't want to go back!"

"Of course she does. That's her family. The ones she loves. She didn't even want to come here in the first place." She noted.

"Things changed!" He shouted. I buried my head into his neck from behind.

"What?" She said sarcastically. "She fell in love?" She said sticking her tongue out of her lips batting her eyes. "Love never gets you anywhere." She said sternly. She walked close to Niall and put her lips near his ear. "What ever falls breaks." She said. He gripped my hand tighter with every word she said. "And love is one of them." His grip hurt my arm and I could feel my fingers turning blue from the loss of circulation.

"You aren't taking her." He repeated.

"It's not your choice." She said and snatched the papers out of his hands and back to Shelly. I tried to free my arm but I couldn't.

"Ni.." I whispered. He didn't move. "Niall you're hurting me." I whispered as a tear fell from my eye. Shelly held the half wrinkled paper in her hand.

"Mum. Please." Niall whispered as tears fell from his eyes. "Please don't sign it." He begged crying. She looked at him with such sympathy. Her eyes welling with tears also.

"Niall please, I'll be fine." I whispered in his ear. He turned to me. Eyes puffy and tears coming down like raindrops.

"No." He whispered. "I don't want you to go." He cried.

"I have to." I cried. "I'm so sorry."

I watched as Shelly slowly signed her name in perfect script. When Niall knew she had done it he embraced me. I wrapped my arms around his neck and didn't let go. I wept in his neck and he sobbed into mine.

"Thank you." I heard the agency lady say. "Does she have everything with her here?"

"I believe so." Shelly said sadly.

Niall slowly let go but gripped both my hands. He sniffled trying not to cry again.

"Can she at least stay another night?" Shelly asked.

"Of course not." She laughed. "She needs to be home by tonight."

I just stared into Niall's red eyes as he looked into mine.

"Niall?" I heard Shelly say. "Please help her pack." He nodded slowly and followed me up the stairs our hands still not separating.

*****

I zipped my suitcase. My hands shaking caused by anxiety. Niall took both my hands. I looked at his with tears in my eyes, he looked back the same way. I nodded slowly. He closed his eyes and sighed. Our hands separated and I gripped the handle of my suitcase. I placed it on the floor and rolled it to the door. Niall closed it behind me. I stopped when I saw a familiar small body in my way. I knelled down to her level and embraced her in a warm hug.

"Don't forget me." She said with tears in her eyes.

"Never." I said moving a piece of hair from her eyes. I kissed her forehead and gave her one last hug. When getting back up Niall's hand was placed on my waist.

"Lets go." He whispered.

I nodded and we walked down the stairs. Niall held onto my suitcase for me. He held it until we got to the front. The passenger seat door was open. I saw Shelly waiting to say goodbye. I immediately hugged her. I could hear her soft weeps. When we separated she took a good look at me.

"The first day I met you I knew you were meant to be with us. You mean everything to this family, don't you forget that. You are loved Cassie. I love you sweetie." She said. I couldn't help but embrace her again. I cried in her neck.

"I love you too." I said and she kissed my cheek. The last goodbye was to Niall. I saw in his eyes were the fullest amount of tears. I gave him a hug which seemed to last forever. I looked at him and he nodded. I pecked his lips. We didn't say anything, just looked at each other. I separated from him and took my suitcase from him and walked towards the car. I couldn't say goodbye like this. We were at least ten feet away from each other. But not to late to say a better goodbye. I turned to look at Niall who was still in the same position, hands in his pockets and tears falling from his eyes. I dropped my stuff and ran back. I couldn't say goodbye like this. I ran into his wide open arms ready for me to come in. He knew we needed to finish this the right way. He lifted me up and I wrapped my legs around him. I held his face in my hands and in that moment, that sweet, delicate moment in time we kissed. Not just any kiss. We smashed our lips together, breathing heavily from our nose, his tongue explored my mouth. The small moment seemed like an eternity. We separated.

"I love you so much." He said with tears in his eyes.

"I love you too." I said. He kissed my nose and set me down. I walked back to the car while the agency lady held the passenger door open. I turned away and opened the back door to sit in the back. She closed the door and slowly walked to the other side. I opened the window to see Niall running to the car. Right when she closed the car door he got to the car. He held my hand from the window.

"I'll find you, okay?" He said quickly.

"Step away from the car." She sternly said.

"I'll be back for you." He said and she started the car and drove off while our hands disconnected. All I remembered was our hands separating, the window rolling back up and many tears falling, the day I left the perfect family.

*****

It's been a half hour, she tried making conversation, but I wouldn't reply. I was shocked how fast the people you love can be taken away from you. I got out my sketch book. The thing I always get out when I feel this way. I opened to a clean page and noticed it was my last page. I needed a new one. I saved the best for last. I started to draw Niall from memory. I drew him the way he looked before I left. Head down. Upset. My memory of Niall was so clear and powerful that even if I hadn't seen him in ten years I would still remember him like the back of my hand. My pencil ran across the pad. Soon I was done and it was perfect. The best drawing I've ever drew of Niall.

I flipped through the pages of my book. They reminded me of old memories. Daisy and Niall playing video games, Shelly reading, Niall blowing a kiss. So many memories. So many happy times. I searched through my bag trying to find my phone. It wasn't there.

"I think I left my phone." I said.

"It's right here." She said handing it to me. "Just made some changes to your contacts."

"What the?" I checked the contact list. No Shelly, no Brianna, no Harry and no Niall! "Where did my contacts go?!" I yelled.

"They are deleted and blocked so they can't contact you."

"What the fuck no!"

"Language Cassie!"

I sunk into my seat and curled up into a ball. I officially hated her. She already took everything from me, now she took away my last chance of ever talking to any of the people I met in Mullingar.
