I look up at Niall's light blue eyes, they seemed to sparkle in the flickering lights from the television. His arm was wrapped around me, making me feel safe. I could feel his heartbeat, quiet and quick, almost matching mine. I had never felt this way before, not even for Kien. I thought I loved Kien, but if I did, what did I feel for Niall?
I shook my head clearing my mind of everything. I couldn't fall in love with Niall, it wasn't allowed. Is lose everything, my friends, my old life.
But that one voice in the back of my head kept nagging me. " But you don't even like that life, you could make a new one, with Niall."
"No!" I cried covering my ears. "I can't. I can't."
I felt someone pull me close and arms folded against a chest. I buried my head in it, not connecting that it was Niall.
"Are you ok Maggie?" He asked, his voice laced with worry.
I wanted to tell him everything, my past, my job, what I had to do to him, but I couldn't. I push away from him, hopping out of my bed.
I swallow slowly. "Get out Niall."
His blue eyes flash with hurt, I could almost feel my heart breaking, but I had to save him.
"You heard me get out." I snarled, when he wasn't moving. "I'm just your bodyguard, you can't get close to me."
Niall stood up, walking to where I was standing stopping only a foot from me. "Your not just a bodyguard Maggie, not to me."
I looked down, feeling my cheeks grow red. I felt fingers wrap around my chin tilting it gently up.
I found myself staring into his blue eyes, his lips only inches from mine. I wanted to pull away, but I couldn't.
"Niall." I whispered, not finding the words I needed to say.
Niall placed his finger lightly on my lips. "Don't say anything Maggie. I have to tell you something."
I looked up, his finger warm against my lips.
"Maggie." Niall started. "You are different from every other girl I have ever met, you are strong, confident and not afraid to be yourself. You caught my attention from the second I met you. Whoever told you that you were just a bodyguard told you wrong. You are not just a bodyguard. You are the girl who stole my heart."
My heart skipped a beat. His finger slipped from my lips as he leaned in slowly. All the voices in my head told me to turn away, focus on the mission, but my heart told me to go for it. I closed my eyes as his lips pressed against mine. I kissed back instantly, letting my heart win for once.
I looped my arms around his neck, my fingers playing with his hair. His hands on my waist, pulling me against him. My lungs screamed for air, but I didn't want to break the kiss. Finally I couldn't take it, I pulled back slowly, but kept my arms around his neck.
Niall smiled kissing me again, but this one was soft and short. "See."
I pressed my forehead against his, smiling. "Your the first boy to ever say that Horan. Thank you."
His hands slip from my waist, but the heat is still there. "No problem Rose."
I let out a laugh. "Stick to Maggie."
He nodded, grabbing my hand. "So now I got a question for you Maggie."
I smile as he rubbed my palm lightly with his thumb. "What's that?"
"Will you be my girlfriend?"
I looked up into his deep blue eyes, my heart and my head at war, but my heart had one victory already and it wasn't going to stop now. "I'd love to be."
Niall's smile seemed to light up the dark room. I leaned in kissing him gently, but keeping it short.
We sat there silently, our hands entwined. Suddenly the door flew open. I jumped away from Niall quickly, standing next to the wall.
Jacob, Lucas and Kien stood at the doorway. "What happened Maggie?" Jacob asked.
"N-Nothing." I stuttered, shooting Niall a glance, praying he will stay quiet,
Jacob's green eyes sharpened. "Don't lie to me Maggie. What happened?"
Niall stood up. "Nothing happened, we just watched a movie and talked."
He walked towards the door turning to face me. "I'd love to finish our conversation tomorrow." He winked playfully at me. "If you want to."
"That would be great." I smiled.
"How about Nandos at 5?" Niall asked.
I nodded. "See you there Horan."
He smiled. "It's a date."
He turned and walked out of the room leaving me facing three angry trained boys.
Sorry it took a couple days, I've been studying for exams. Hope you all like it :)
