Still the One -Niall Horan love story

"Best friends forever and always." He said wrapping his small finger around mine. The thing he didn't know was how big my feelings were for him, more than a best friend. I was so close to telling my best friend until he went on the X-Factor without saying goodbye. I haven't talked to him or seen him in three years now. That he was Niall Horan, the one in the world famous boyband, One Direction.


31. Secrets come out

"D-ddad?" My voice quivers at the sight of the man that left me and my mother three years ago. I looked at him with disgust. He smiled down at me.

"Kacey, how are you doing sweetheart?" He gave a fake smile and tried to pull me into his grasp. I pushed away. The look in his eyes made a shiver go up my spine. He looked at me like I was a piece of chocolate on a shelf that he hadn't had in weeks. Why hadn't anyone noticed that a suspicious man was trying to hug me. I looked around, they were all too busy hugging their families. I couldn't blame them, I wanted a real one myself and they hadn't seen theirs in months.

"Get away from me." I pushed him away and quickly went over to Niall's family before my father could follow. In my mind it was great to see the man who I had missed so much the first year he had been gone, or the man that I wished to have back while all of my friends had their dad's come up during a speech at the end of graduation. I had imagined him to look different. Maybe even look more successful then my mom, but by the looks of him, he looked worse then when he left us. But, in my heart, I was disgusted by the sight of him and even a little frightened at his sudden appearance.

Why was he here now?

How did he find me?

Bunches of questions ran through my head and I couldn't stop myself from asking them. The questions stopped when Niall's hand found the small of my back and pulled me closer to his family. It was good to see Maura, or even Greg. Greg always was the bigger brother to me that I never had.

"Guys, this is my girlfriend Kacey. You remember her, right?" Niall introduced me and a slight feeling of hope was in my heart as he had asked them if they remembered me.

"Of course we remember Kacey. She was at our house almost every day." Maura pulled me into a hug and I smiled. This felt like the older days all over again. I couldn't help, but to smile. "But sweetie? Where's Dallia?" Maura asked while hugging me. My heart dropped to my stomach at Dallia's name. Especially coming from Maura's mouth. She talked about her like she liked her very much.

Niall looked at me with an apologetic smile and turned to his mom. "Mum, we broke up a few months ago." Niall told her. She frowned.

"That's too bad. I really liked her." She said now getting pouty. She looked at me, and I swore it was a look of disgust, but she quickly looked away when she saw me watching her stare. I didn't know why she was acting this was. Was it because of how un wealthy my family was, or she didn't like me? I didn't know, but it made something clench in my throat.

I politely smiled and stood up, "I'll be right back, I have to use the restroom." I quickly walked away and down the hallway of the building in search of a bathroom. Did she hate me all along? The only motherly figure I had and she didn't even like me.

"Kacey, wait." As I walked down the hallway I heard Niall call my name. We were away from everyone and I was grateful for that. I turned away and quickly wiped away the water in my eyes before he could see them.

"Hey, what's up?" I asked in my best tone, but even then my voice shook. He looked at me and sadly smiled.

"I'm so sorry for what happened in there." He said, pointing to the door that leads into the room we met them at. I shook my head and smiled.

"Hey, it's fine." I said in assurance. He shook his head and backed away from my touch.

"No, it's not okay. I need to tell you something that's been on my chest since I saw you for the first time a few months ago." He almost looked guilty. I nodded and we walked a little further so no one could hear our conversation.

"I never intended on this happening." He started. I already saw tears in his eyes and I felt a knot tie in the bottom of my stomach. "God, I feel so horrible. I left you and never even said goodbye." He pushed his hands on his face and sighed. I shook my head.

"No, Niall, if this is what it's about, I already forgave you." I reached over to hold his hand but he pulled away again.

"That's not all Kace. You have to forgive me for what I'm about to say. I can't bare to lose you again." He said. I sighed and let him continue. "The reason my mom is acting like that is because, I lied and told her that we dated back then, because I loved you." He sighed once again. "And when I wanted to go for the X-factor, she said that I couldn't leave you because you already had your problems with your family, and you needed me. Well, I wanted to go so bad, I made up a lie about you." An ache was in my heart when he said that, but I let him finish. "The reason she's looking at you like that is because she really liked Dallia, and on top of that, the lie I told her was that you cheated on me and got pregnant." I gasped and felt tears spring out of my eyes instantly. I moved away from him and got up. I couldn't believe the words he was saying.

"And you said you loved me back then. Was that all a lie?" My voice shook as I talked and tears were down my face. He shook his head.

"Of course not Kace, I loved you so much, and no-" I cut him off before he could finish.

"I can't believe you, how was I ever so stupid to think you loved me, even if that was three years ago." I took of my promise ring and dropped it. I ran outside with my name being called, but I didn't stop.

I kept running.

I couldn't care less if it was three years ago, the fact that he didn't fess up to his lie and tell me, makes me sick. I loved him so much, and still do, but after what he did to me, makes me want to shrivel up and never talk to anyone again. I'm sure Maura think I have a baby now, and that's why she looked at me the way she did, not because she hated me back then, because she hated me now. I wonder if the act was fake when she was hugging me. I feel like my heart has been ripped out and stomped on. I don't even know if Niall loves me for real. Was it all an act so he could embarrass me again.

I finally stopped running when I couldn't breath any longer. I looked at my surroundings; I was in a dark alley and it was surrounded with trash. I shivered at the wind that reached my skin. Even if it was 4:00, it was dark in this alley and you couldn't see above you.

"I thought your mother told you to come home to see me, but you didn't listen. You were to busy going around with your little friends on a tour around the world." My fathers voice jolted me from my state on the ground and I saw him pull a shinny piece of metal. He grabbed me and waved the metal around in my face.

A knife.

I squirmed. He held me tighter and laughed. "You thought you were going to continue to go on your tour, while I was at home with your mother, guess not. You didn't even listen when your mom called you." He laughed and fear took over as the knife was pressed lightly against my face causing a small gash to my cheek.

"You left us." I said with a loud tone, so I could prove my point. He laughed once again.

"If you would of come home, I would of explained that I left to do some business." He pressed the knife to my throat. I felt a warm tear trickle down my face, now wishing what I would of stayed at the party.

"And now it's time for me to finish business." He pushed me on the ground and held a cloth to my face. The last thing I saw before I passed out was my mothers smirk, as she stood behind my father in admiration.


*Niall's POV*

I watched as Kacey ran out of the building as fast as she could. I've never felt so heartbroken in my life as she threw the promise ring on the ground. I picked it up and held it, before placing it in my pocket. What was I going to do? She lives in a different country. Ireland is far from here. I can't imagine not being with her. And now I don't even know if she will talk to me again. One thing I do know is that I will never give up. I wasn't lying when I said I loved her, and heck, I wasn't lying when I said I loved her back then. I was a stupid 16-year old. And, I wanted to go onto the X-Factor back then, so I made anything up. The whole time I was away from her, I realized how much I missed her and I couldn't stand to be away from her, but I was too embarrassed of facing her. But, I was happy when I saw her at the concert, and I was even happy when I saw the dissapointment on her face when I introduced Dallia as my girlfriend. I wasn't happy because of her feeling jelous, but because I loved her and it was good to see that she returned my feelings, even though I slightly had feelings for Dallia back then.

"Paul, Kacey ran off and I have no clue where she could be." I panicked and told Paul. He sighed.

"She's probably with her father. He insisted on coming here today and seeing her." Paul said. I panicked. Kaceys dad hasn't been in her life in three years.

"Paul, Kacey hasn't seen her dad in three years." I said panicking. Who knows if she's with her father, or she's safe, all I know is I need to find the one I'm deeply in love with.
