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.


27. The best birthday ever


"Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday to Kacey, Happy Birthday to you." The whole crew including Paul sang to me. I smiled at all of them.

"Make a wish Princess." Niall whispered in my ear as he bent down to the height of the chair. I smiled and blew the candle out. Everyone clapped.

"What did you wish for?!" Ce asked bouncing up and down in her chair.

"I can't say. It won't come true." I laughed and looked back down at the cake that had Oreos all over the chocolate icing. My mouth watered at the sight of the delectable. I looked around the table at everyone who was staring at the cake like I had a few moments ago.

"You guys can dig in. I'm going to go get the ice cream out of the freezer." I said, getting up. All of them scrambled to cut the cake and shove it in their mouths. I laughed.

"Man, Dairy Queen makes a rocking cake." Harry said while shoving a huge bite into his mouth. I laughed as they all devoured the cake.

"Here I saved you a piece." Niall said coming in next to me and sitting down. I smiled and thanked him as I saw all the boys and girls around the small TV watching a football match. I smiled and looked down at the table and saw a small box in front of me that was neatly wrapped. I looked at a grinning Niall and playfully rolled my eyes.

"You've done so much for me already though." I said holding the medium sized gift.

"You deserve it." He said with a grin. I laughed and gave in opening the wrapped box. I lightly gasped when I saw what it was. My heart fluttered. He remembered? I looked at him and hugged him.

"I remembered." He said thinking back to the time I wanted a locket. The kind where you can put one picture on a side, and another on the other. It had a picture of us when we where kids at my 11th birthday party. I laughed at my pixie cut.

"Thank you so much." I said, getting a tear in my eye at the memories.

"I've had it for 7 years now. I just haven't gotten around to giving it to you." He said truthfully. I smiled and looked at him, taking in my amazing boyfriend.

"I love you." I said as he came around and put it on my neck. I grasped the silver chain hanging loosely on my neck and smiled as I felt the coldness touch the bare skin above my shirt.

"I love you too. Happy birthday." He placed a kiss on my cheek and sat back down next to me.

"It's going to be so hard to leave in a few weeks." I admitted. I haven't told anyone about how scared I was to go back to the hell hole and probably face my father. Niall had wiped my face. I hadn't realized I was crying.

"You realize if your mother ever does anything to you, you just call me, and I'll be there in a instant." He said studying me. I smiled at him and went over as he pulled me into his lap.

"What if your at a concert or a meet and greet?" I asked. He shook his head and looked down.

"I don't care. I would still come." He said as he looked back up at me. I smiled and kissed him.

"You don't understand how thankful I am of being able to spend this summer with you." I started. "CeCe and I would of been at her house the whole summer, listening to One Direction music like she always has on." I laughed. He laughed along.

"I can't imagine what it would be like now if you wouldn't of come to that concert." He said looking up, probably thinking about something.

"I know. Jake probably would of throes to make another move on me." I said laughing. Once Jake broke up with me, he saw all the times the boys would flirt with me, so he got jealous and would try to claim me.

"I wouldn't even know what Dallia was doing behind my back. I can't believe I was ever with her." The mention of her name made me cringe at how she treated the first night. "Sorry for bringing her up. I'm with you now. And I am happier with you." He said. I shook my head.

"No, it's fine. I brought Jake up first." I said laughing at my foolish old boyfriend choices.

"Hey, since the games over, how about you open your gifts Kace?" Louis screamed from the living area. I smiled at Niall, got up, and took his hand as I walked to the area. I sat on the floor, and they all crowded near me, wanting me to open their gifts first. I laughed and grabbed Dani's.

"It's from me and Liam." She said. I nodded and smiled, starting to tear a crease. I opened it and started laughing. It was a Batman shirt and matching slippers. I said thank you and gave them hugs.

"Mine next!" Perrie said shoving a purple wrapped gift at me. I started opening it and smiled. It was the Little Mix CD signed. And a pair of adorable diamond earrings. I thanked Per and moved on to Louis' gift.

"El and I got separate gifts for you, because El and I couldn't compromise on one." Lou said. I laughed at the image of them fighting in the store. I started opening it and laughed immediately. It was a folded up cardboard cutout of Lou. It had a signed message on the front in black Sharpie.


Stay cool. Even though you will never be as cool as me. I hope you enjoyed this summer.

Love, Louis'

I laughed and hugged him. "Thanks Lou. That was really sweet." I said looking at the message again. He playfully winked. Eleanor rolled her eyes at Lou, slapped his chest and gave me a medium sized gift. I started opening it when I saw a car on the bottom.

"Kacey Paige Millikan,

You don't know how much this summer means to me. I made 2 new best friends. And I definitely can't live without you now. I'm going to be calling and FaceTimeing you everyday. Love you so much babes, El'

Tears came to my eyes. "Awe El, I love it. Who knew you could be so deep." I laughed and wiped my face. She laughed.

"Shut up and open it." She said laughing. I laughed and started opening it. It was the picture of us girls at the fair, framed. It was a really good picture of all of us. I smiled.

"Thank you so much." I said smiling and hugging her tight. She nodded and sat back down.

"Are you gonna open mine yet?" Harry said cheekily. I giggled and shook my head. He rolled his green eyes and shoved the present at me. I started opening it. It was a scarf I had pointed out in a local mile, back when we went shopping in Mullingar.

"Thank you,just what I wanted." I said smiling and hugging him.

"And last but not least Cecelia Lagley." I said smiling over at her. She looked innocent and then pulled out a large gift. I laughed as she tried to hold it up. I took it and sat it down face down so I could unwrap it. When I finally got it open, I flipped it over. I laughed and smiled as I saw a bunch of pictures and tickets from concerts and memories. I looked at the top and saw a picture of us when her parents had taken us to a small city called Down. We looked so young. It was three years ago. Then I moved on and saw the Jonas Brothers concert. We both thought we looked amazing that night with our 'I love Nick' shirts. And then it leads down through the years. One catching my eye of before the One Direction concert with the tickets beside. "I was wondering where you had put the tickets" I said laughing. I looked down where it leads up to taking the first picture with the girls in the mall when we had a shopping trip, then the concert, and then it leads up to a picture that was all of us together, with Paul putting a piece sign over Zayn's head. I smiled at all the memories.

"Thank you so much Ce." I said going over and hugging her.

"Aye no problem Frank." She said impersonating the godfather. I laughed.

"Thanks guys. This truly has been the best birthday ever." I said looking at everyone. They smiled.

"No problem babes." Dani smiled.

And the truth was, that this really had been the best birthday ever.
