"Where did you go when you ran away?" He asked.
I sighed before answering his question. "When I left, I just started running. I didn't know where I was going or where I wanted to go. I eventually found myself here after riding many busses and long walks." I said.
He had one hand out the window while the other held onto the steering wheel. "So, you had no specific place in mind?" He asked. "No, not really." I said.
"You could've came to my place, you know." He said looking over to me. I was silent before replying. "Well, he would've found me there." I mumbled. He gave a sympathetic smile and nodded.
"So, what brought you down here?" I asked him. "Um, the necklace remember?" He said gesturing to the jewelry around my neck. I had completely forgotten about it. "Oh, yeah. That was it?" I asked, seeing if he any other reason. He took a breath and held in for about a good five seconds. "Niall?" I asked.
He let out the breath. "You ok, there?" I added. "Um, yeah. To answer your question, I - I um, my job had me come down here, and while I was in this place, I decided to look for Harry to give him the necklace." He said. Well that explains why he even bothered checking here.
"What exactly is your job?" I asked, yet another question. Niall ran one of his hands through his hair. "I, I cant tell you right now." He said. I was confused, why couldn't he tell me?
"How come?" - "Em, I just cant. I'll tell you some other time." He looked out of his window, attempting to avoid eye contact. I noticed that its pretty serious to him that he keeps a secret. "Ok, I see." I said.
We pulled up to a movie theatre. "Ready?" He asked. "Yep!" I smiled, about to open the door. Niall's phone began to ring before we were out of the car. He looked at the caller I.D., then asked me to step out while he took the call.
I waited outside of the vehicle as Niall answered the caller.
About 5 minutes passed and Niall reached across the passenger seat and knocked on the window to get my attention.
"Yeah?" I asked. "Um, I just got called to work. Maybe we could do this tomorrow?" He asked.
"Um, yeah. Sure. No problem." I faked laugh. "Thanks, Em." He said.
"Um, Niall?" I asked. He gave a 'yes?' look. "Could I come to your work?"
He hesitated before replying with a stutter. "Em, I don't know. I, I..." He began to trail off. "You what?" I asked. "I don't think... I don't think its safe."
"What do you mean?" I asked. "Well-" he sighed "-its hard to explain."
"Just take me with you, and you wont have to do any explaining." I suggested. "Its not that simple." Niall argued.
"Please, Niall?" I began to beg.
He bit his lip, causing the lip ring to become more noticeable. "Fine." He sighed. I opened his car door and quickly got in. "Thank you Niall!" I said happily.
As he backed up from the parking lot, I managed to hear him mumble.
"You shouldn't be thanking me."
