The first thing that I noticed when I woke up was Niall's arms around my waist. Dammit, I thought I told you not to cuddle me! Trying to slip away without waking him up proved to be hard as the devil's heart. Scooting out of Niall's grasp woke him up.
"Good morning, love." I hit him with my pillow.
"I told you no cuddling, silly." Niall laughed.
"Sorry, I like to cuddle people." His blue gaze was happy to see me, I could already tell. I sat up and grabbed Zelda.
"Is there anything you want for breakfast?" I asked him.
"Waffles are good." Niall smiled. I nodded and headed downstairs.
"Oh, and don't do anything stupid while I'm making them, okay?" I called up.
"Okay!" Niall called back.
*beepboopbeep* Dammit, I forgot my phone in the guest room. Getting up almost instantly, I raced down to the guest room and found that I had a Skype call. It was from the boys. I headed back to Kacey's room and accepted.
Louis spoke first. "I thought you weren't going to answer, mate!"
"Ha, you thought wrong!" We all laughed.
"So, how's the new house, mate?" Zayn asked. "Did you find a lady friend?"
"Shut up Louis." I fake slapped him and he took the hit. "And yes, I found a lady friend. Her name's Kacey. She has a lot of pets for an eighteen year-old."
"Woah. Woahwoahwoahwoahwoahwoah, Niall. I may be the flirt of the group, but my number one rule is no one that's still in school, but college is the only exception." Harry backed up.
"No, she just graduated. She's got a job as a YouTube commentater and wants to sing as a professional career. And no one knows she lives here for some reason."
"That's hardcore. Even you thought the house was empty." Liam noticed.
"What kind of stuff does she commentate on?" Louis asked.
"Dunno. This is only my second day here." Kacey called up from downstairs.
"Hey Niall, waffles are done!"
"I'll be right back, guys." I disconnected and ran down the stairs.
"Those waffle were amazing, Kacey."
"Aw, thanks." Kacey smiled. "My mom taught me how to. She was an amazing cook."
"She...was? Did something happen to your mum, Kacey?" She looked up from her computer and turned to me.
"I...I don't want to talk about it. It's kinda personal to me." She stared at the ground and went back to typing something. It looked like it was a story.
"Are you writing a story, love?" She blushed.
"I'll tell you when you stop calling me love."
"Okay, I promise." Kacey laughed.
"Yeah, it's a story. A fantasy story, really."
"What's it about?"
"A girl's mom is an angel that was sent down to earth to protect people. And her dad was a human that just so happened to fall in love with her." Kacey started. "When they had a child, the girl's dad noticed her angel wings. He asked his wife why, and she admitted to being an angel. The dad was furious, and he basically turned insane."
"What happens?" I was intrigued.
"Well, the mom and daughter are hurt every day, with words and punches. One day, when the daughter turns fourteen, the dad...the dad rapes her." Kacey had some trouble saying the last part.
"What? Why would he do that?"
"Because he was so mad that his own wife lied to him for so long about being an angel. So the mom and daughter flee to heaven and the daughter is raised there. But when she turns eighteen, she wants to go back to earth. She inherits her grandmother's house, and she comes along a boy from Ireland. And the two happen to fall in love..." She trailed off. Silence hung in the air for a few minutes.
"Kacey, is that..." Kacey cut me off.
"I've...I've said too much already." She turned off her computer and ran back to her room.
"What was that all about, Orion?" I scratched the dog's ears. "Was she...writing an autobiography? The story of her life?" No...Kacey said that it was a fantasy story...is she saying that her own life is almost like a surreal story? Why would someone do that to her? Just because she's different, doesn't mean you can...was she a half-angel? Was that why she was so secretive? It didn't matter, it just didn't. I loved her too much; she was just so sweet. And that love was growing by the second.
