Like children * Complete *

We all made choices we regret; choices that tear us apart. We deplore them so much we wish we could start all over again.
But even with a second chance, can what has been broken be fixed?

9. Chapter 8

I wait for while for him to answer, breathing slowly as I think about what I'm about to tell him.

"Eileen! I wasn't expecting you to call me so early," I hear Niall exclaim. I chuckle slightly at the sound of his voice.

"Well, I can think quicker than you," I tease him; knowing perfectly that he would stuck his tongue at the phone after I speak, even though he knows I can't see him.

"Are you calling to laugh at me or you really thought about it?" he asks simply but I could hear annoyance in his voice.

"Yes, I thought about it," I reply more seriously. He doesn't speak so I carry on, " I want you to be able to live your dream; it would be pathetic from me to say you shouldn't audition. Therefore, I think that you have nothing to lose if you do this." I stop and wait for an answer. I can hear him breath as he probably is thinking.

"Thanks, Eileen." I open my mouth wide; it wasn't the answer I was expecting. I thought he would tell me again I hadn't thought enough about it; that he wasn't self-confident enough to do it. But he is simply thanking me.

"Thank you. Your support means everything to me..." I interrupt him before he finishes his sentence.

"Hang on; you only asked me because you weren't sure whether I would support you?" He doesn't answer but an awkward silence follows my question.

"Niall... You know I will support you whatever will happen and whatever you will do. You can rely on me." I keep talking, surprised.

"Yeah, I know...," he mutters a short while later. "I'm sorry for being doubtful. It's just that... It's going to be something crazy! But I know as well that there are a lot of chances that I fail." I smile weakly; if only he knew.

"Don't worry; you won't fail. Something incredible will happen to you, better than you could hope for." I stop talking straight away; I shouldn't have said that. I'm not supposed to know.

"How do you know?" he asks awkwardly.

"I don't know it... It's just something obvious!" I stutter; hoping he wouldn't ask anything else.

"Okay..." he replies, not sounding entirely convinced.

"Niall, I have something to ask as well," I whisper, breaking a tense silence that had followed his answer.

"Sure; I'm listening to you." He seems to have forgotten what I said.

"Do you mind if we talk face to face; it's not something I want to say on the phone."

"Alright then. See you in two minutes!" he exclaims before hanging up.

I put my phone down on the table and take a deep breath.

What I'm going to say to him is what I should have told him three years ago.
