"please don't go…" i whispered, barely audible.
he smiles and slowly walks towards me. "you want me to stay?" he asks with a confused, yet still has a small smirk. i reply with a small nod and feel my cheeks get red. he chuckled and sat down next to me on the side of the bed. "you sure you trust me? i haven't done anything but hurt-" "shh, I'm trying to sleep." i say quietly, pulling him closer on the bed and wrapping his arm around me and laying on his chest. "goodnight princess." he whispers and i feel my eyes get heavier.
i woke up to my phone ringing and tiredly picked it up, seeing that my mom was calling. wasn't she supposed to be at work? why would she be calling me? i'll just let her leave a message. i don't feel like talking to her right now. i do need to get up though, i should probably go to school today.
just as i was getting up i felt two arms pull me back. it surprised me at first, then i realized who it was. "stop moving…" niall whined in my ear. " Niall i have to get up.we have school today." i remind him, getting off the bed. "I'm not going. neither are you, so get back here its cold." he said trying to grab my hand to pull me back, and almost succeeding. "I have to go. and you should too." "no way. its just school. why are you even going?" he asked. i went to my closet and looked through my clothes. "to piss the teachers off. you know, what i normally do." he chucked at my response and i continued to look through my closet.
i decided to wear my cream sweater that says 'whatever', white jeans that have some black design in them, and my black wedges. i walked over to my jewelry box and grabbed my snake ring and necklace thats shaped like a guitar pick with "Now Im A Warrior' engraved on it, and my dads and my names on the back that my dad gave me. My dad. I miss him. A lot. i miss when he would always tell me that i was wrong, then brag about him being right. i miss his humor. i miss his hugs. i miss his laugh. i miss when he would smile because of my mom. i miss my mom, well not now, how she was before. i miss the way they would look at each other. i miss when we were a family. i miss him.
"hey, do you need me to drive you?" niall asked, getting of the bed and sitting on the edge. "uh- sure, yeah." he nodded and got up. i walked over to my curling iron and began to curl my hair as i watched him walk out of the room.
when i was finished, i played with the loose, wavy curls and fluffed them to perfection. while i was distracted by playing with my dads necklace, niall came up behind me and put his hands on my shoulders. "you almost ready?" he asked, well it was more like a whisper. i still had my eyes on my necklace while i nodded. "you ok?" he asked and i nodded again. "Are you sure you wanna go to that lame ass school and be around those asshole teachers? cause we could just stay here. and i still don't think your ready to be around any one-" he started to say."i'll be fine." i interrupted him and turned around to go downstairs but he stopped me by grabbing my arm.
"you sure?" he asked, again. "yeah, I'm fine. as long as no one brings it up. but i haven't told anyone, so no one should know." i looked up at him and he slowly let go of my arm. "yeah, sure- anyways, um we should probably get going." he said. "so your gonna go to school just to drop me off, but your not gonna stay?" i asked him as we walked down stars. "yep." "what are you gonna do all day?" "i don't know, go to my dads house to get some stuff, take a shower, change close, anything i need to do there before he gets there." he said, grabbing his car keys. "what if he's home?" i ask as i look for my phone. "i don't know. why are you asking so many questions?" he asked as i continue to look around for my phone. where could it possibly be? "i don't know. have you seen my phone?" i stopped looking to faced him. "no, you probably dropped it outside, or in my car when kid- the last time you were in it," he corrected himself, " but we have time to trace everywhere we've been. where did you see it last?" he asks. "uh, yesterday, when i was walking home. i checked the time, then put it in my pocket. then you dru- brought me back here." i said. i probably dropped it in his car, or when i was climbing the tree to get in my window. "so, you might have dropped it when i picked you up after, you were asleep, or in my car." "ok, so ill check around the yard, do you think you could drive back down that road i was walking down to see if i dropped it?" i asked, he nodded.
when he was gone i went outside and walked to the tree. after looking around for about 20 minutes with no luck, i heard a car pull up.
"hey what took you so long, did you find it?"i asked as soon as he got out of his car. "yeah i did, it was on the floor in my car." he said, now standing in front of me with my phone in his hands. "wait, if it was in your car why did it take you so long to get back?" i asked, grabbing my phone. "well, i had to get something from my dads house before he came back." he said, reaching out a small bag.
