I parked the car at the side of the road and walked up the driveway. I checked my watch and saw it was only 4:30p.m. I walked to the front door and rang the doorbell. I inhaled deeply a little worried. How was I supposed to introduce myself? "Hey Lucy! How are you?" No she won't be able to answer that. "Hi Lucy. You wanted me to come see you?" Of course she wanted to see you you dim-wit why wouldn't she want to see you if she texted you an invite. Um? "Hello Lucy...." My thoughts were cut off when Lucy opened the door with that pretty smile that makes me happy. I smiled back and then quickly said without thinking; "Hey Lucy. You look lovely, may I come in?" I asked. On the outside I was smiling, but on the inside I was slapping myself on the cheek multiple times. 'What an IDIOT!' I thought to myself. Lucy nodded and gestured me into her home. She had handed me a pen and paper telling me to read it. It read;
My parents are here and want to meet you.....well I mean my mum. My dad doesn't live with us so yea.... But she's in the kitchen :)
I looked at her, smile on her face and her hand out reaching for mine. I took her hand and she lured me into the kitchen to where I saw her mum. She was as gorgeous as Lucy. Now I know where she gets her beauty from. I shook her hand and gave it a simple kiss and pushed in her chair. She smiled sweetly at me and then at Lucy. "It's very nice to meet you Ms...." "Ms. Smith." She corrected me. "Your daughter is very beautiful and very sweet." I say looking at Lucy. "You know she can't speak so that mean she can't say I love you right?" She stated. "Yes Ms. Smith I am aware of it. Also, why would she say 'I love you'?" I asked.
"Oh it's just I thought....you two..." " It's just how she looks at your messages and how she acts different (in a good way) when she reads them." She said a little embarrassed. I smiled a little and looked at Lucy who was blushing and hiding her face with her hair. She was looking at her knees drinking her tea. The room turned silent and I cleared my throat and had told Lucy's mother about how I felt about her. "Ms. Smith, I am aware your daughter can't speak and that doesn't make me look at her any different. She is beautiful inside and out! Her not being able to speak doesn't change my feelings for her. Her personality and soul is what I'm in love with, not her flaws." I say felling Lucy stare at me shocked that she's hearing this for herself. I looked back at her mum and saw her smiling and tear eyed. "You are welcomed to my house anytime." She said giving me a hug. She looked at her watch and nearly had a heart attack. "I'm sorry, I'm running late for a day with Debby! I'll be home around 8:30 okay? Love you Lucy. Bye Niall." She said and she was out the door. "So, what do you want to do?" I asked plopping on the couch.
My mum left me alone with Niall and I was quite nervous! "So, what do you want to do?" Niall asked. I pointed to the shelf of movies and Niall got the idea. "What are we going to watch?" He asked again. I made a fish face and my hand over my eyes making me look like I was searching for something in the distance. "Finding Nemo. Right?" He asked. I nodded my head and went into the kitchen to make popcorn. When I came back with a bowl of popcorn and some drinks Niall was already sitting on the couch ready to press play. I sat next to him pulling the couch blanket on us. Niall pressed play and the movie had started. I took a handful of popcorn and began to eat it trying not to elbow Niall, I was quite squished between Niall and the couches side. Niall had looked over to see me getting squish and he put his arm over my shoulders and scooted me closer to him. I laid on his chest and I could here his heart beat, beating at a calm steady pace while his chest moved up and down from his breathing. As we were watching the movie I inhaled his cologne and felt the warmth of his skin. The soft fabric of his shirt rubbing against my cheek made me feel sleepy. I gabbed another handful of popcorn and held up a piece to Niall's mouth and he gladly took it. He smiled and kissed my nose. I started blushing like crazy. I looked at my hand which was close to Niall's. I shifted it to his where our fingers intwined together and our hands had fit perfectly. I looked up at him and smiled.
The movie had ended and Niall got up sitting up straight. He looked at me and kissed my cheek. I smiled and kissed his lips. He didn't break the kiss and it felt right. I pulled back and started to speak and tried to say sorry but started crying because nothing came out. I felt as if I was too forward and I ran to the bathroom. Niall ran after me and caught me by grabbing my arm. "Hey, are you okay?" Niall asked. I nodded my head and began to scribble words down on a pad of paper;
I'm sorry it's just I didn't mean to kiss you like that...we aren't even dating and I just kissed you and it was too forward and
I was stopped by Niall picking up my hand and pulling me in closer to a tight Horan Hug. I squeezed back and felt safe he looked down at me and kissed me again and got deeper and more sweetly every second we kissed. He wrapped around my waist and pulled me into his lower torso. He broke the kiss and then looked at me deep in the eyes almost my soul! "Lucy, will you be my beautiful, amazing, sweet, lovely princess?" He asked me. I kissed his lips to say my answer and he quickly got it and smiled wide. I was now Niall's girlfriend!
