"So, we've got this all down?" I asked the boys.
"Yup." Louis replied.
"I guess so." Harry added. Liam and Zayn gave the thumbs up.
"Okay. I really want to make this a surprise for Kacey. You lads are gonna go in during the night, I'm gonna wake her up and tell her there are people in the house. And when she finds out it's you guys...well, let's just say nature'll take care if the rest."
"1637 Prince Boulevard?" Zayn asked.
"Yep. Tomorrow early morning."
"Alright. 'Nite, Nialler." Louis said.
"Bye guys." I disconnected from our Skype chat. Hopefully Kacey will be able to realize how much we're putting in for this...but I'm also worried. Harry might act up and...do something horrible to Kacey. I don't think I want them alone together when Harry gets here. And when he sees Kacey for the first time, I think that risk is going to be greater than ever.
Niall's been super secretive lately. What's up with him? Every time I want to talk to him, he gets a bit worked up. And when he wants to be alone, he really can't stress it enough. Maybe it's the secret project he told me about in his note a few days ago.
"Zelda, why do you think that Niall's acting weird?" I said as I was getting my pajamas on.
"I dunno. But he is definitely hiding something from you, girl, so I'd watch my back if I were you."
"I don't see why I would watch my back, but..." Silence hung in the air like cigarette smoke for a few moments.
"I saw Rusty gettin' confronted by two feral cats! A blue-gray girl and gray tabby tom, I think. They took him to the forest, Kacey!" Zelda remembered in surprise.
"Zelda, I don't have time for that right now. I have to say goodnight to Niall." I started to head out the door.
"Whatever keeps your food bowl fill." I closed the door and walked down to the guest room. Niall was still getting his stuff unpacked into his bedroom; he had to buy a bed sooner or later.
"Hey, Niall." My voice was soft as I entered.
"Oh, hey, Kacey." Niall's cheeks turned a bit red. So he was falling for me. I knew it!
"I'm gonna go to bed. So...good night?" I clutched my arm.
"Yeah." Niall gingerly kissed my cheek. As I turned to leave, Niall grabbed my shoulder, not hard, but enough to make me stop walking. "Is it okay if I sleep with you tonight? It's just not comfortable sleeping alone just by myself." Aww. He was definitely in love with me.
"Sure." I stood on my toes and kissed him back. Niall touched the place on his cheek where I kissed him. He was blushing.
"Can I cuddle you this time?" Niall asked, half joking.
"Fine." I fake-groaned. But I couldn't hide my smile. I turned away from Niall and fell asleep almost instantly. I could feel Niall hugging me as I fell asleep. What is he planning...I'll never know. Oh well.
