Harry, Niall, and my trip back to Chesire is going to be interesting. It had already been a week since I took Louis clubbing and since then Eleanor and him have met up twice. I think my matchmaking skills were magic.
“ADDIE. Get your royal arse down here and help pack the things in the car!” Harry yelled from the first floor.
I sighed, putting my lip gloss on and marched downstairs. Niall was getting my things from the floor. “No, Niall! I’ll get them.” I stopped him from lifting the bags.
He set them back down. “I would carry them for you though.”
I rolled my eyes and smiled, “Yes, but I don’t want you to!” So I got my bags and wheeled them out to our car.
Harry closed the trunk. “So are we all set then?” He asked me.
“I presume so. I think Niall is just grabbing some food from the corner shop.”
“Haribos?” Harry asked, brightly.
“Yeah, I think so…”
Harry ran down to the shop before I could ask him for the keys. I stood at the car for 15 minutes before Niall and Harry came back with BAGS of candy.
“You two and your candy…” I rolled my eyes and Harry unlocked the car. I was supposed to be driving considering Niall doesn’t like to and Harry doesn’t have his license yet.
I got into the driver’s seat and Niall sat beside me whilst Harry got comfortable in the back. I wasn’t driving that long because we were just headed to London to catch the train to Adlington.
We arrived at the airport a little late so we had to run to catch the train. Niall dropped his candy once so we had to run back and pick it up.
We made it on the train before they closed the doors. We were seated in first class with no one else there. The 3 hours were spent talking about embarrassing things that had happened to me when I was younger, thank you Harry. I owe you one. Niall was laughing so hard I thought he was going to pass out.
“So…so then she took her scissors and snipped off all of her hair!” Harry laughed, in between Niall and I. “We have so many pictures of that wretched hair cut!”
Niall laughed, “I CANNOT wait to see them! I want to meet your mum!” Niall said.
“You have met my Mum!” I rolled my eyes at him.
“But not as your boyfriend.”
“I didn’t know you weren’t the same person you were when she met you…” I scratched my head at him.
“Har har. You know what I mean! I’m being introduced as your boyfriend to your Mum… that’s nerve wracking.”
“For you! I know she already love you…from the wonderful stories Haz and I have told her.”
Harry gleamed and winked at Niall, “Yes, and wonderfully embarrassing stories.”
I slapped Harry, “You weren’t supposed to tell him!”
“I can’t be tamed, baby sister!” Harry shouted, getting up from his seat and running around.
Niall slid into Harry’s seat next to me. “So you think your mum will like me?”
“They have liked every single one of my boyfriends…no pressure or anything.”
“Addie, I’m being serious.”
The rare occasion when Niall is serious… “She will love you.”
Niall leaned into my neck, “Do you love me?” He whispered, kissing the side of my neck. Did I love Niall? Of course I liked him… a lot. But love? We’ve been dating for two months…
Harry cleared his throat and Niall moved to the next seat. “Alright, I think I’ve been tolerant enough of this…relationship. All I ask is that you two DO NOT do anything couple-ish around me.” He shuddered before adding, “It sort of freaks me out. She is my baby sister, you know?” He added the last part to Niall.
Niall chuckled along with me, “Sorry Haz, mate.” Niall said, ruffling Harry’s curls.
The train pulled up to the Adlington station and we all got off. My Mum was standing inside waiting for us.
“MUMMY!" I screamed, dropping my bags and running to them.
I flew into my parents arms and they chuckled. My Mum stroked my hair and patted my back. “Hey, baby girl!” My Mum said to me, “I missed you so much!”
“I missed you too!”
Harry copied my actions and also ran to mummy. “I missed you So much mum!" Harry said, hugging us all.
"I missed my baby boy as well!" My mum said. "I'm not a baby anymore mum." We all laughed.
“Is that your little boyfriend?” Mum asked, letting Haz and I go.
I blushed and he called Niall over. Niall stood in between Harry and I, awkwardly.
“Mum...this is my boyfriend, Niall. Niall Horan.” I said, gesturing to him with both of my hands.
Mum shook Niall’s hand, “I’m Anne, Addie's YOUNG Mum. Not too young though. It’s nice to meet you. We’ve heard ALL about you.”
“It’s nice to meet you as well.” Niall said, properly. It was out of his character to be so…serious. “I’m really glad I finally got to meet you . Addie always talks about .”
I don’t talk about them that often…I guess Niall just wants to make a good impression. “Always talking, Addie is!” My Mum said, “What part of Ireland are you from?”
“Mullingar, ma'am.” Niall said. Nothing was said for an awkward moment.
“Oh, is Maggie home?” I asked, quickly.
“Oh, I nearly forgot her! Maggie is at home. She’s sleeping though.” My mum said. Maggie is my cousin. She’s older than Daniel and she lives in Florida. The time difference always throws her off and she sleeps for AGES. Maggie and I don’t usually talk much but it’s only because she’s so much older than me. She was already in year 8 when I was born. She moved straight to Florida after year 12. She has even developed an American accent…not entirely though, which I’m thankful for.
Maggie is 31 and has two little girls. One is called Rosie and the other is called Ellie. They look just like me when I was little. Maggie and I look a lot alike even though we're just cousins, except for the fact that I’m 18 and she’s 31. That’s right, today is my 18th birthday!
“LET’S GO!” Harry declared, like a child, stomping his foot impatiently and grabbing our bags.
We all laughed and headed straight for the car. Niall packed the trunk and we got home in fifteen minutes.
I finally got in the house but was soon attacked by my twin nieces, Rosie and Ellie. “AUNTIE ADDIE!” They screamed, clawing at my legs. They were so cute. Rosie and Ellie had this weird mix of English/American accent. It was too adorable.
“Rosie! Ellie! How are my favourite nieces?” I tickled them both and they giggled in delight. I spoil these girls so bad.
“Good!” Rosie said. Ellie smiled at me then whispered in my ear, “Is that your boyfriend, Aunt Addie?”
I laughed, picking Ellie up and handing her to Niall. “Yes, this is my boyfriend!” I kissed his lips quickly and the girls gagged.
“Are you my uncle?” Ellie asked Niall.
He laughed, “Well no…but I’m dating your Aunt. She’s so, so beautiful! Isn’t she?” He asked, setting Ellie down and grabbing my waist.
“Not in front of the children, Nialler.” I winked before he released me.
My cousin, Maggie, marched into the living room like a drama queen, so typical. “How’s my wee little sister?”
I hugged her and laughed, “I’m fine Maggie. How is my OLD cousin? You know, I need updates on my nieces, right? WHERE ARE MY PICTURES?” I screamed at her.
She chuckled, handing me a little box. I opened it and there were all of my pictures of the year from Rosie and Ellie. Every year, either Maggie comes to visit us or we go visit her and we give each other pictures from throughout the year.
“They are so precious!” I smiled at a picture of Ellie in a box, “Going to grow up just as gorgeous as their Auntie.”
She rolled her eyes and shut the box, “Where’s my pictures? Surely you’ve printed out mine! I want to see it, big shot. You’ve had one hell of a year.”
I rolled my eyes before unveiling a silver box filled to the brim with pictures of EVERYTHING. Pictures of Ember, Jaime and I. Pictures of the boys, couple ones with Niall at the beach and even a couple of pictures with James…eh.
“I’ll go through them later.” She hugged me and whispered, “I don’t know why you’re not telling Niall it’s your birthday but Mum told me not to announce it…so Happy 18th birthday, kiddo.”
I chuckled and pulled away, “Thank you, Mags.”
She went back into the kitchen, gathering Ellie and Rosie.
I sighed, plopping down on the loveseat in front of the telly. Niall sat down beside me and almost instantly fell asleep. After some game was on I got up, leaving Niall on the couch.
