8. The truth in away...
Then came again a period when Niall was busy. I chose not to worry, because we spoken so much as he had time to with me. He did everything to give me a moment every day, but usually he couldn't even do that.
Late one night we talked and I heard that he sat on a bus.
"I'm on my way to another city." he said and yawned. "It gets a lot of traveling."
"Okay, so what city is it?"
He laughed and I heard he hesitated, but then he seemed to tell the truth.
I was about to choke.
"So do you travel so far to work?"
"Yes, sometimes even longer."
I sat up in bed.
"You have a different life?"
"You can't imagine!"
"I'm not going to ask more about your job, but do you work for a celebrity, I mean it sounds like that."
Again silence and again doubt.
I began to understand him. I began to understand what he was doing.
"I think it's the truth." I said happily. "You work for a famous artist and you can't talk about it? He or she wants a private life and you have signed a contract to be quiet?"
He laughed and I heard that he liked my ideas.
"Okay, it's pretty close to the truth, so let's say I work for a famous person and that I travel. This sounds similar to the truth!"
I was happy.
"Thanks Niall for letting me know."
He seemed happier and he seemed to have perked up.
"You are unique!"
I shook my head.
"No, you seem to live a better life and I now understand why you refuse to tell me more about your job."
"Shall we change the subject?"
He yawned and I heard a voice in the bus.
"A friend has woken up." I heard him whisper. "They hate that I'm sitting up and talking with you."
"Maybe you should be sleeping?"
Niall hesitated again. I realized that he hesitated much in his life.
"I don't." he murmured tired. "I don't want to miss the chance to talk to you. Others have girlfriends and they call them all the time. I have only you."
My heart was warm and there was a tingling in my body.
"So it's like I'm your girlfriend, though I isn't?"
Niall laughed quietly.
"I told you! You are my girlfriend even if you don't want to admit it and even we don't know how we look."
It felt weird that he said that.
"You mean that we can be a couple in this way?"
Niall seemed to consider it.
"Yes, because you are so close to been a girlfriend that you can be., You have promised me that I will cook some food for you some day, and you have promised to meet me before you die. Speaking about that we will not have children together."
He laughed too.
"We will be too old to have children., We will meet, but then it's too late to have children."
I understood what he meant and looked down at my hands.
"Okay, maybe we will be old, but then you probably have a family and children?"
"Maybe it's you who has a husband and a lots of children. How many kids do you want?"
"I don't know. I haven't thought about it."
Niall was silent for a few seconds.
"I want to have kids and a wife and a big house and all that one day."
I looked on the computer.
"Then you'll get it."
He was quiet for a little longer, and again he hesitated.
"Why will you not see me?"
"Sometimes it's better not to ruin the friendship by curiosity."
I laughed a little bit.
"You will never disappoint me!" he said and I heard that he meant it. "You're too good to be true!"
I blushed slightly.
"One day I will give you that rose, walk up to you and ask you out."
"You remember all that I say?"
"Yes!" he answered quickly. "I memorize everything that has to do with you."
Okay! I ended up in such a state, I was in love. It was exciting again with Niall and I was glad that he had feelings for me.
"You're crazy!" exclaimed my friend Emma. "You're with a guy online?"
"You don't know him .."
Emma sighed and looked at me with wide eyes.
"Maybe he's ugly?"
She sighed and sat down on the chair.
"Talk about that he can be the murderer or perhaps a drug addict?"
I laughed and shook my head. I knew Niall was anything but that.
"He's perfect, and the funny thing is that I don't know what he looks like."
"You must see him or a photo on him."
I shook directly on the head.
"He will not know what I look like and I don't want to mess up."
Emma stared at me and then she opened the book. We sat in the library and I chose to sit on the opposite of the table. I picked up the books and realized that Emma wasn't at all impressed with Niall.
"So he's working for a celebrity? He's lying to you."
I looked at her and shook his head.
"No, he just avoids the truth sometimes. Everything else is he honest with."
Emma seemed still not to like him.
"He will deceive you and maybe one day he asks you to undress naked in front of the camera and then you have pictures of you all over the net?"
"No, he's not like that., He's just kind and caring."
She looked at me for a long time.
"Think if he's a paedophile?"
I shook my head.
"He doesn't sound old and he talks about things that only a twenty year old can tell me."
"But ask him to send a picture?"
Directly I looked cold on her.
"And when he asks me to send a picture?"
"Then you do it? How ugly isn't you and he might like you?"
I shook my head and looked down at the book.
"You know that I'm not special and that no guy looks at me."
She smiled and shook her head.
