26. Chapter 26
The next day, I finish packing my stuff up and handing Niall my last bag. "It was so great to meet you." I say to Maura and Bobby. "Just remember what I told you." Bobby says, winking and I smile and nod. I hug them both and then Niall takes his turn and I go outside. I am actually going to miss this place. Well, you don't have to, if only you and Niall get together, a little voice says. I push that thought aside and I go to Niall's car and lean against it. He comes out and walks up to the car. "Niall." I say and he looks at me. "When we get back, are you going to be the asshole again?" I ask and he leans on the roof. "It really shouldn't matter, we will probably just ignore each other like we used to do." He says, climbing in. I get in and click my seat belt on and then look out the window. The car doesn't move so I look at Niall and he is staring at me. "Come on." I say but he shakes his head. "Nora, I know something is wrong, you know it's true, you and I will just becomes distant, like this never happened." He says but I shake my head. "It doesn't have to." I say but he nods. "Everything that you said to me, I am not ready for a relationship." He says and I nod. "I am just the douche bag that everyone including you sees me as." He says and I look at him. "Niall, you were practically begging me to take you back." I say and he shrugs. "I thought I loved you." He says and a piece of my heart chips off. "So you don't?" I ask but he shakes his head. "You are a sweet girl Nora, I don't want to be the one to break your heart anymore than I already have." He says and I look away. His hand lands on my leg but I just keep facing the window. "Nora, look at me." He says but I shake my head. "Nora! Look at me!" He shouts and I do, the tears sliding down my cheeks. "What?!" I shout and he bites his lip. "Please, please don't cry." He says so I look away, swiping at the tears. "Nora, I don't want to be in a relationship with you because I am afraid of-." He says but I cut him off. "That I will ruin your player reputation, I get it, let's go." I say but he shakes his head. "Nora! You just don't get it!" He shouts and I roll my eyes. "I get it pretty well, you would rather break my heart and leave me behind just to be cool, now let's go!" I shout but he pulls my face to his, only millimeters apart. "I don't want our relationship to fail and then you hate me, you are the most important person to me and I don't know what I would do if I lose you, alright?! That's why I don't want to date you! Not because of my reputation." He says, tears gliding down his cheeks, surprising me. I stay silent as he starts the car and pulls out of the driveway and drives off.
