25. Chapter 25
It's night time and we are all sitting around the fire, the older folks at their own fire, Niall and I and a few of his cousins over with us with Greg and Denise and the little kids playing hide and seek. "This is the perfect way to end the night." I say, looking up at the sky. "It's not over yet, my dad has something special planned." Niall says, smiling. "What do you mean?" I ask and he smiles. "He gets out the truck with a flatbed on the back and we all ride around, staring at the stars." He explains and I smile. "That sounds like fun." I say and he smiles. Niall pulls his stick away from the fire and pulls off the marshmallow and puts it in the cracker and holds it to my mouth. I lean in and take a bite and I smile. "Yum." I say, moving back. I scoot back from the fire a little since I am getting hot. "Come on, who's going?" Bobby announces and Niall pulls me up. We sit in the back, dangling our feet off of the side. "Ready?" Bobby shouts and I nod. Surprisingly it was just Niall and I and a few other people.
"It is really beautiful out here." I exclaim, staring up at the sky. "Yeah, I wish it would look like this every night." He says and I nod. I lie back and feel an occasional bump. Niall lies back next to me and we stare up at the sky. "I'm sorry." He says suddenly and I turn my head and he is staring at me. "Why?" I ask and he shrugs. "I have been a jerk." He says and I nod. "I just want you to know that I really do care about you, you've also made a real good impression on my parents." He says, smiling. "Yeah." I say, smiling too. "I am really not like that in relationships, I only did that because I knew it was fake and I thought you hated me." He continues. "I do." I say and he bites his lip. "But I wouldn't want to be anywhere else or with anyone else at this moment." I say, grabbing his hand and intertwining our fingers. "Consider this are real second date." He says and I laugh. "Alright." I say and he squeezes my hand.
I didn't realize I fell asleep until I am being lifted. I open my eyes and am staring at a chin. "Go back to sleep, I am taking you to the car." He says but I shake my head. "Put me down." I say and he does and I stand in front of him. "Come on now." He says but I hug him. "Thank you." I say and he just stands there. Soon I feel his arms tighten around my waist and am being lifted off my feet. "Just date already!" Someone shouts and I laugh. I stare down at Niall and he has a sort of longing look in his eyes. I slowly bend my head, closing my eyes until my lips are just millimeters apart from his. I brush my lips against his and then I pull away. "We better get back." I whisper, his eyes are still closed, his mouth slightly open. "Tease." He says, slowly opening his eyes and I smile. He puts me down and I wink and go over to his car. He walks over to my and I press my back against the car, staring up at him. "Let's go." I say and he smirks and in a flash his lips are smashed to mine. My hands wrap around his neck, playing with his hair. I grab a handful and pull his head back. "Come on." I say, sliding his keys out of his back pocket and then pushing him away. I get in and start the car and he is still standing there, staring at me, his lips slightly puffy from the impact of the kiss and I can't deny that I have tingles still going through my body.
Okay, this was the greatest family reunion, don't you think? I want to go to it. -BoyBand&&VinerCrazed;)<3
