4. Chapter 4

“AJ, Sean lets go… please?” I asked pulling on both of their arms trying to get their attention. This was to no avail as AJ just shrugged my hand off his arm and Sean blatantly ignored me. They were both talking to some random girls at the bar.

 

I was currently in a small pub in downtown Mullingar Ireland at 4 in the morning. We all started out going clubbing and let me tell you, I had an absolute blast. Guys were not necessarily all over me but I didn’t really dance alone at all and that was a slight confidence booster if I didn’t say so myself. I wasn’t completely trashed which made for a wonderful night, I could actually remember what had happened, I had a nice buzz going on. After hours of hopping from club to club around town Sean and AJ both decided they wanted to spend some time at the local pub. At first it was cool, however a lot of younger people had left and I was getting slightly creeped out by the people who were in the pub.

 

“AJ please, I’m uncomfortable.” I whined and he just told me to go away. I sighed and walked over to the other side of the bar and sat down in a pretty deserted area. I pulled out my phone and starting texting and messaging people back. It was nice to see that some people were genuinely curious to see if I was good being over across the world.

 

“Now what’s a pretty young thing doing in a place like this at a time like this?” I heard a strong male voice near me. I snapped my head up and looked at the guy who was sitting down on a bar stool right next to me. I made a nervous laugh as I caught a good glimpse of the stranger.

 

“Just waiting.” I replied in a short tone to him. He laughed a deep husky laugh that made me cringe just in the slightest of ways. He was definitely older, a lot older than I was. He wasn’t skinny either; he was bigger and really tall. He had a very strong Irish accent which I really wasn’t feeling at the moment.

 

“Oh come on sweetie, lighten up a little bit.” I just looked at him and looked back down at my phone and he started laughing again. I was extremely uncomfortable, yet I felt almost paralyzed in my seat, like I couldn’t get up. I looked over to find AJ or Sean however they weren’t where they were 10 minutes ago. Well this wasn’t looking very good for me at the moment.

 

“Come on babe, let me get a name?” He asked and I didn’t reply to him this time either. I know I was being extremely rude, but I just didn’t want to have anything to do with the guy who was attempting to hit on me.

 

I hopped out of my seat in attempt to walk away from the guy however he grabbed my arm. I hit his hand off of me and slapped him across the face. “Don’t you ever fucking touch me again.” I said in a stern tone before I attempted to walk away for the second time. A smirk played on his lips.

 

This time he grabbed my arm harder and started to pull me towards him to which I turned around and punched him in the jaw. “GET OFF OF ME” I screamed and he pushed me into the wall. I hit my head on the wall really hard as I heard my head connect with the concrete. That one hurt just a bit. I then slid down the wall. I saw the man approaching me before I saw multiple people hopefully coming over to help me.

What looked like to be the bar owner came flying by and stopped the man from approaching me anymore. I breathed a deep sigh of relief as he restrained him.

 

“Jesus Christ, Emma, are you okay.” I looked over to see AJ kneeling by me and Sean just behind him. I didn’t even hear them or see them come over. I must have hit my head harder than I had thought. I didn’t immediately reply to AJ to which extreme concern grew on his face.

 

“Emma are you okay?” He shook my arm slightly to get my attention. I winced and he immediately took his hand off of my arm. Sean kneeled down on the other side of me in concern.

 

“Yeah, yeah I’m fine.” I said as I tried to get up. Sean just held me down.

 

“Don’t try and get up just yet Emma, you could be injured.” I heard Sean say to me.

 

“I’m fine, can we please just go back to the house now?” I asked both of the guys, clearly annoyed with the situation. AJ nodded his head and he slowly lifted me onto my feet. Sean kept close to me as we walked out of the pub. He seemed like the protective older brother type to me. He seemed to genuinely care about me and that made me smile in a big goofy grin. AJ looked back at me.


“Are you sure you’re okay? I never see you smile this much.” I then scowled at him and gave him the narrow eyes. He started laughing.


“Now that’s more like the Emma I’m used to.” He started laughing again.

 

“Hey Emma?” Sean started talking. I looked over at his with curious eyes, “I’m sorry we didn’t listen to you back there. I mean I didn’t really think anything of it when you kept pestering us.” He said with a concerned look on his face.

 

“Its okay,” I said with a smile back. He didn’t really seem to believe me,  “it’s really okay, I’m fine, I promise. You guys seemed too drunk to care anyway. But I guess when someone you know is getting hurt, that sobers you up just a tad.” I smirked at him

 

He cracked a smile and AJ stopped walking, “Hey, we weren’t and aren’t that drunk.” AJ said with a lopsided grin. Sean nodded his head in agreement as he almost tripped over a dip in the sidewalk. I then proceeded to laugh at his either clumsiness or him being slightly drunk.

 

“Where did we part anyway?” I asked them both. They clearly weren’t in the state to drive home. Sean led us over to the car to which he almost refused to give me the keys too. However I told him that if he didn’t give me the keys I wasn’t getting in the car. He whined like a baby but eventually I won the dispute and thus, I’m attempting to drive back to Sean’s house. I find the house after what seems like forever of aimless driving. Sean and AJ fly out of the car and immediately pass out in bed. I don’t blame them as I look at the clock and it reads 5am.

 

I went up to my room and changed into some comfier clothes. This random girls’ clothing was just my size, how lucky did I get there. I then proceeded to take off the makeup that seemed to be caked onto my face, even though it was just fine. I then threw my hair into a high pony tail and let the long curls flow from it. I tried lying down in bed but I couldn’t really fall asleep. I think the jet lag was catching up to me. At home in California it would only be 9PM.

 

I decided against lying down anymore and went down into the kitchen to get myself a glass of water. Sean’s laptop was still plugged in and his Skype was still logged in. Being the curious and nosey person I was I went through and looked at all of his contacts. I smirked and decided to update the status bar.

 

I laughed and typed in, ‘My cousin Emma is seriously the greatest person, like ever.’ I clicked enter. I smiled and walked over to finally get the water that I had come down here to get in the first place. Just as I was about to walk back upstairs the Skype ringtone went off. I quickly turned around and ran back into the kitchen. Without even looking at who was calling I accepted the call.

 

“Hello!” I beamed as soon as the other person came onto the screen. I then took a closer look at the person and it was none other than the boy that I had met earlier in the evening. Niall. He had this shocked look on his face when I was so enthusiastic as too greet him as I did.

 

“Oh.. Hey Emma?” He said slightly nervous. I smiled at him. He was actually one of the most attractive people I have ever seen in my life. Then again I have never actually seen this guy in the flesh. If he looked this good through the camera, I can’t even imagine how good he looked in real life.

 

His voice knocked me out of my train of thoughts, “Is Sean there?” I looked back at him. I was being awkward again, “Uh, no.. He’s uh sleeping.” I told him.

 

He nodded his head, “Then what are you doing up?” He asked me and I was kind of shocked that he was keeping the conversation going.

 

I smiled nervously and I swear his face lit up a little bit, or maybe it was just the lighting. “Jet lag is hitting me right about now.” I said as I sat down in a chair and pulled the laptop into my view again.

 

“Oh I know that feeling.” He said with a laugh. My goodness his accent was absolutely adorable. I couldn’t take my eyes off of him.

 

“Oh?” I responded quickly, “How so?” I asked him. And in the moment he looked extremely nervous. Did I do something wrong? I mean I most likely did something wrong. “Sorry if that was too personal.” I said and looked down.

 

To my surprise he laughed just slightly. “I travel a lot because I’m a musician.” He said and I just nodded my head and said Ohh, because quite frankly that makes a lot of sense. Whoever this kid was he definitely had the looks going for him. I still could have sworn that I have seen him before; I just couldn’t quite put my finger on it.

 

“So do you play an instrument? Or do you sing?” I asked, his face and body relaxed in the smallest of ways. That made me relax as well and I leaned back into my chair.

 

“I do a little of both.” He had a giant smile on his face, “I play guitar if you were wondering.”

 

“That’s so cool!” I almost jumped out of my chair and he snickered. “Literally I tried to play the guitar but I gave up after a week because I seriously didn’t have the patience for it.” I looked back over at him and he had another warm smile plastered up on his face, “I guess patience really is an American thing, or maybe it’s just a me thing.” I said quickly.

 

Dang it, I was rambling. I always tend to do that when I get nervous. He laughed again. “So Emma, tell me a little about you?” He said in that sexy accent.

 

“Uhm, like what?” I asked not even sure where to start.

 

“Anything and everything.” He replied, I just gave him wide eyes because that doesn’t help me what so ever.

 

I sighed, “Well,” I scratched my head, “My name is Emma Carlie Cullen and I’m from the United States, I mean you can probably tell from my accent,” I laughed nervously, “I’m originally from Ohio if you know where that is. Uhm, I play volleyball and I attempt to run track, I guess. Uhm, my favorite color is purple and I have a dog and two cats. My favorite food is ice cream,” I saw Niall’s face smile to that one, “and yeah that’s about it.” I finished my awkward little talk.

 

He grinned, to which I returned with a smile. I honestly don’t remember the last time that I had smiled so much in my life. Niall just had this life about him that made you want to smile when he was around. There was just something about him that really made me want to learn more about Niall.

 

“That’s it?” He asked, “I’m sure there is much more to you than that babe.” He said. I raised my eyebrows and he just smiled some more. The way he said babe was honestly just the most perfect thing that my ears have heard before, it was melodic. I probably shouldn’t think that much into it as many people in Europe say ‘babe’, look at me go picking up on the European slang and it hasn’t even been a day.

 

I just shrugged my shoulders, “I guess I’m just pretty boring.”

 

“I highly doubt that.” He replied.

 

“I guess you’ll just have to find out.” I said with a smile.

 

“I like the sound of that.” He said.

 

We just sat there and talked for a couple more hours. I sat and talked with a beautiful boy named Niall, Sean’s best friend, and he made me the happiest that I have been in a long time. I learned that Niall is a travelling musician and is from around here (obviously if he is Sean’s best friend). I also learned that he would be coming back to Ireland for the summer because he was almost done with his mini tour. I guess I didn’t really to think for his last name or look for his music because quite frankly I didn’t really care. This boy was already perfect to me and I couldn’t wait to get to know him better, I hope he feels the same.
