14. Chapter 14
*During the interview*
"So are any of you boys dating anyone?" The man asked. I was watching backstage with the girls on the tv. Harry,Liam,Louis, and Zayn all raised their hands. Everyone but Niall. "No Niall, no special girl for you?" He asked, sitting back in his chair. Niall didn't say anything. "Can we skip this part?" Niall finally spoke up. "But we have to know the answer! Is Niall Horan dating anyone?" The interviewer asked. I can see Niall becoming angry as he didn't want to answer. "I asked can we just drop it?!" Niall finally snapped. I looked at the girls who kept a close eye on Niall. "You guys are going to have to go public one day" They both said as the pushed me out on the stage. I made it look like I tripped, trying to not make it so obvious. "Oo hello there, and who are you?" The interviewer asked politely. "Toula. Toula Payne.." I said standing up. The crowed gasped as they all started to talk. "You're Liam's little sister?" He asked, pulling up another chair for me, I gladly took it and sat down. I nodded my head slightly, "yea.. I'm the youngest of the Payne kids, only 14" I said with a small smile. "And how come we have never heard about the little Payne kid" he asked with a smile. "Well, Liam doesn't like me in the public eye.. So he kept me in secrete" I said biting my lip. He nodded his head as he kept asking me all these questions, but one came up and I froze. "So are you or do you like any of the boys?" He asked. My eyes widened as I really didn't know what to say. I looked at Liam as he slowly nodded his head. "Yes. I'm dating one of them." I said looking at Niall. He lifted his head as It hung down. The crowed started to cheer, "but I don't want hate.. Again guys what ever I tell you, I'm telling you cause some or the majority of the fans are nice , but then there's that small part who is just mean and nasty. I'm only 14 and I don't need hate.. Please, I'm asking you from the bottom of my heart" I said as the crowed cheered louder. "So tell us, who's the lucky guy?" The interviewer asked. I looked at Niall. "Well he's funny, and he worries about me a little to much but I love him" I said with a smile.
Niall slowly raised his hand, his cheeks a rosy red colour. "I'm the very lucky guy.." He said softly, still blushing. Everyone's eyes widened. "So the Irish lad has a girlfriend" the interviewer said leaning forward. Niall nodded his head, a big smile on his face. "How long have you guys been dating?!" Someone yelled from the crowed. I looked at Niall biting my lip softly, "about a month.." I said. Harry tapped me on the shoulder as he told me to switch spots with him so I can sit next to Niall. I moved with Harry as Niall put his arm tightly around me. "So Toula, what is like dating a member of the band?" Another girl asked. I thought for a moment, "it's fun, especially when you have a sweet guy like Niall, it's amazing. But then I'm also the sister of one of the band members and that's a little crazy. Being in school, everyone wants to be your friend to get close to the boys, only certain people you can trust, and I can only trust 2. Roneth and Violet, they don't treat me differently from my last name to the people I hang out with. Cause they treat me like a normal person and that's why I love them" I said with a smile, I looks back at the girls and Roneth was tearing up a little. "We love you babe!" They both yelled from backstage. "Well there you have it ladies, 5/5 is taken" the interviewer said as they cut the camera off. Niall picked me up and ran off stage. "We went public babe! We went public!" He said in excitement as he twirled me around as he hugged me tightly. "Just tell me if the fans are being mean ok? I will be there for you" he said kissing my nose as he put me down. I looked over at Liam who was talking with someone. I walked over and tapped him on the shoulder. "Liam?" I asked softly. He turned around and hugged me tightly to him. "You're growing up baby girl.. Your growing up.."
"I'm growing up... I've finally grown up.."
