It's been 4 years since my friend left for X factor. He got put into a boyband and now is totally famous. I doubt he even remembers me. I was about to close up my little coffee shop when I heard the bell ring. "Are you still open?" A voice said. "Yeah I can take one more order," I called back while turning the lights back on. The man walked up to the order stand, and I saw his face... It was Niall. "Niall?" I said. "Gabbie?!" He exclaimed. I jumped over the counter and gave him a huge hug. "I can't believe you still remember me!!" I said. "I can't forget the girl who I've known all my life!!" He said I asked him what he was doing and he said that he was on break from your and that he came down to spend some time with his family. And he had 5 months off. I made us some coffee and we chatted forever. I looked at the clock and it was 10:30 " I have to go!" I said. " do you want to stay the night at my place?" I asked him. "Yeah sure!!" He said. We got into the car and drove home.
I can't believe I ran into Gabbie. I've missed her so much and I thought I would never see her again. But now I'm going to stay the night a her house. "Hey, maybe tomorrow I can take you to t place and you can meet the boys," I said. She agreed as we slipped into our pjs and got in bed. I slid in next to her, and she didn't mind and we fell asleep.
I woke up to the sound of a fire alarm I quickly got up and saw that Niall tried making pancakes for breakfast. " Sorry, I burnt them a little," he said while staring at the black pancakes. "That's ok," you said. Ou both sat down and had to drowned the pancakes in syrup because they tasted so bad. "So,"Nialls said with a mouthful of burnt food,"how's life?" "Well, now that you mention it, not that good." I said. "Why?" He asked. He had a look of hurt in his eyes. "Well, my boyfriend dumped me, and I don't know why. I only have about 3 other friends." I didn't tell him about my self harm issue because I was afraid he wouldn't like me anymore. "Why only three?" He asked. "Delilah, Alexis, and Christie have been there since the beginning for me. When I was bullied, they stuck up for me, no matter how much it hurt them." I said "I have to go to the bathroom, I'll be right back" I said as I ran off down the hall. I looked through the drawer until u found what I wanted, my blade. I gave myself 3 cuts and put on a hoodie to conceal my wrists. I came back into the kitchen to find out that it was all cleaned up and Niall was waiting for me on the couch. I curled up next to him, with butterflies flying in my tummy.
As Gabbi crawled up next to me, I felt butterflies in my tummy. "What movie do you wanna watch?" I asked her. "Ummm what about the little mermaid?" She suggested. "Ok!" I said as I got up to put the movie in. I sat back down and she laid her head on my chest. "I-is this ok?" She stuttered. "Yeah," I said. The movie started and she didn't mind when I played with her long red hair. About 30 minutes after, I noticed she was sound asleep. I also noticed that the sleeve of her hoodie was red, so I rolled it up. I revealed something terrifying. 3 cuts. "Oh Gabbi. Why would you so this to yourself! I can't believe you did this! God, if I was your boyfriend I would never let you go. I would never hurt you. EVER. I love you. Since day one. I know you don't feel the same way about me, but I hope that one day I'll have the bravery and courage to say that to your beautiful face. I love you." I said those last 3 words as if I've been waiting to my whole life. Suddenly, her beautiful green eyes stared up at me. "Y-you heard that d-didn't you" I stuttered out "yeah Niall. I did." She said. "I-I'm so-r-r-y," I apologized. "No need to be sorry," she said. "W-what-" but before I could finish my sentence, she planted a kiss on my lips.
