I woke up to singing. I dragged myself out of bed with pain shooting through my arm. It was a boy who was singing with a girl laughing.... Coming from the living room. "Tessa! Keep it down! I'm trying to sleep!" I shouted. Then, I actually woke up. "What the feck just happened?" I wondered out loud. My phone started to ring. I grabbed it. "Hello?" I asked groggily. "Hi! Did I wake you up, Renee?" Mom's voice said. "Oh, no! I woke up just before you called." I said. "Oh, OK. Well, how are things? House isn't gone, is it?" She asked. "No." I said. She sighed on relief. "Well, your father and I are going places tomorrow, so happy early birthday." Mom and dad said. "Thanks." I yawned. "Tell your sister we said hi and we'll let you go back to sleep." She said. We hung up and I rolled over. I walked down the stairs and the front door was unlocked. I looked out the window. Carter and Tessa stood outside. Carter said something to her and a shocked expression appeared on her face.
"Tessa.. I need to tell you something." Carter said. "It's 7 in the morning and you choose to tell me now?" I asked sleepily. "I need to tell you before anyone wakes up." He said. "Alright, spill." I said. "I love you, Tessa Alison! You stop my heart and you are the most beautiful girl in the world!" He said. I fell into a shock. No fucking way! He stepped a bit closer. He looked straight into my eyes. He pressed his lips to mine and took my hands. Still in shock, I closed my eyes and kissed him back. We stayed like that for a long time. His hands were so warm. He was so nervous, his hands started to sweat! Eww! Oh, who cares, sparks were flying. I pulled him closer. He almost fell over from how much he had to lean over. It's not that I was short, he was just the tallest guy in school. He pulled away slowly. His mouth was open a bit and he stared at me with big, perfect, blue eyes. I wrapped my arms around his neck and hugged him. "Will you be my girlfriend?" He asked. "Yes! Yes! A million times yes!" I said. He planted his soft lips on mine again, brushing his tongue against my lips. What more did he want? He wanted to French kiss me? I let his tongue in and he grabbed my hips with his strong hands.
I wasn't sure what I was seeing! My sister kissed someone earlier then I did? I was happy for her that her crush liked her, but I was being protective in a way. I wanted to run out and rip him away from her, but I also wanted to let it slide, so I did. They pulled away from each other, staring into each others eyes. He smashed his lips to hers again, knocking her to the ground. He was laying on her, and she was just enjoying ever moment. I called Niall. "Hey princess." He said. "You would not believe what I'm seeing." I said. "What are you seeing?" He asked. "You know my sister's friend, Carter, right?" I asked. "Ya..." He replied. "He's laying on top of her on he front lawn, kissing her." I said. He fell silent. "Oh wow." He said. "Ya..." I said. "Hey, wanna go to the movies?" He asked. "Ya, sure... I need to get dressed." I said. "K, be there in 30 minutes." He said. "K." I said and hung up. I was still looking out the window, watching them. He started making out with her. I walked away and got dressed. I heard the door open and close. "Hey! Where were you?" I asked as if I didn't see anything. "Just talking to Carter." She said. "More like made out with him! How was it?" I asked. "Awesome! His lips were like silk!" She said. I gave her a high five. I waited for Niall after getting dressed and sighed. Niall was so great, I don't what I'd do without him. He pulled up and I jumped in. I gave his a quick kiss on the cheek and we headed off.
*After The Movie*
Niall and I stood in the sun. I closed my eyes and smiled. "Well someone's happy." He said. "Ya..." I said happily. He smiled and kissed the top of my head. "In that case, lets go for a walk." He said. "Alright." I said. He took my hand, locking our fingers together and started walking. I stayed pressed against his side and squeezed his hand. We stopped walking she we got to the lake from the night before. "It's not as pretty with the sun." I said. He looked at his watch. "Come on!" He said and ran with me close behind him. We ran for a bit until we reached a tall hill. He was all sweaty. "Eww! Get away! You're all sweaty!" I said and run up the hill, laughing. He laughed and ran after me. A light, cool breeze went by and I stopped to enjoy it. Niall wrapped his arms around my waist from behind and rested his chin on my shoulder. "It's really warm out for February." He said. He was right. He was in a tank top and shorts. I usually wore that even in the winter cuz the cold never bothered me. Right now I was wearing shorts and a tank top as well. He lifted me off the ground and I let out a shriek. He laughed and carried me up the hill. His strong arms tight around me, holding me as if I was about to be taken away. "You're mine forever." He whispered. I smiled and we reached the top of the hill. He put me down and we sat. It was a cliff hanging over the lake. The sun was setting and the refection in the water was beautiful. "Wow." I breathed and stood up. I walked close to the edge and looked over the water. "Be careful." He said. I wasn't listening, I was amazing by the beauty. He came up and wrapped his arms around my waist from behind. "Still not as beautiful as you." He said. Again, I wasn't listening. My jaw dropped at the sight of geese flying by the setting sun. The sun set behind the horizon and Niall rested his chin on my shoulder. I laid down on the grass and looked up at the starry sky. He smiled. "Come on. I've got one more thing." He said. I stood up and followed him. He took me to a skating rink with no one there. "I rented it out, just for us." He said. "But you know I can't skate well." I said. "You know how, you just believe you can't." He said. He handed me a pair if skates. I put them on. He helped me onto the ice. (Incase anyone is wondering, her cast is thin and just goes on her arm, it's not in a sling.) He held my hand as I staggered along. He laughed as I tried to stand up straight. He helped me until we were in the centre. I looked at him with a smile. The lights dimmed and I looked around in a small panic. Lights started blinking on and off with different colours. I smiled. "You're full of surprises today." I said. He smiled. We skated around.
*An Hour Later*
I was sitting on the couch, telling Tessa all about the night. "Wow, sounds great." She said with a smile. My phone rang. "Hello?" I asked. "Renee, I was wondering if you wanted to stay the night here." Niall said. "Niall, I can't just leave Tessa here alone." I said. "Please? I can ask Marlee to take her!" He said. "We can't just keep making Marlee do things, Niall, it's not right." I said. "I love it when you care for others." He said. "How about I call Harry. He always liked Tessa. She likes him." I said. "Alright! As long as I can be with you." He said. I smiled. We hung up and I called Harry to see if he was free. He said he'd gladly take Tessa. "Tessa, Harry's gonna take you for the night." I said. "Yay!" She said.
*15 Minutes Later*
I took Tessa to Harry and headed over to Niall. I knocked on the door and he answered. I told me to wait. "I know, but I've known her for years." He said. "Yes, I know, but I love her more than anything." He added. "Thank you! Bye!" He said. "Who was that?" I asked. "Paul. I was convincing him that you were my girlfriend, but still technically my best friend." He said. "Oh! OK! So... Movie?" I suggested. "Iron Man 3?" He asked. "You got it?! Yes!" I said. Niall smiled and we sat down.
Just as the movie ended, she fell asleep on my chest. I couldn't help but smile. Then my thoughts took over. "I don't want to wake her up, but I'm not sure if she'll feel comfortable sharing the same bed... Should I risk it or put her in her room?" I thought. I decided to risk it. As I walked with her cradled in my arms, her eyes fluttered open. Her face reddened. "Hey... Do you wanna stay in your bed or..." I trailed off. "Well, if you don't mind, I'd like to stay with you." She yawned. My heart skipped a beat. "Of course I don't mind!" I said. She smiled. She wrapped her good arm around my neck and kissed my cheek, making my cheeks get really warm. She laughed a bit and I held her close to me as I walked. "Is that everytime I come here, I forget my pjs." She laughed. "You can just use one of my shirts." I said. "OK." She said. She only used my shirts once or twice, but now that she's my girlfriend, it was nice. I walked into my room and put her down. I handed her a shirt and she quickly changed as I tried to find my plaid pyjama pants. I glanced at Renee and even when she used to use my shirts, she never looked so cute.
He glanced at me and I couldn't help smiling. "You look really cute." He said and started going though his dresser. I felt my cheeks get warm and I smiled. He found a pair of plaid pyjama pants and he headed into the bathroom. I sat on his bed and waited. He came back with the pants on and no shirt. I cover my eyes and closed them. "Put on a shirt!" I laughed. "Aww, don't you like it?" He asked. I shook my head. He laughed. He pulled my hands away from my eyes. "Ha ha! My eyes are closed." I said. "Aww come on! It's not that bad." He said. I shook my head. "Please! I'll give you something!" He said. "Just cuz you'll give me something, I'm not opening them." I said. "I love it when you hate getting stuff." He said. I sighed and opened my eyes. He was actually looked... Hot like that. He smiled when he saw my eyes open. He wrapped his arms around me and I rested my head on his shoulder. At this point, we were standing up. He moved back and forth, one foot to the other. It was relaxing. I looked up at his smiling face. He looked down at me. I leaned in close, making his face redden brightly. I smiled. It was so cute when he did that. I pressed my lips to his and tightened his grip around me. He added more passion to the kiss. I smiled against his lips. We pulled away, looking straight into each others eyes. A big smile spread across his lips. I kissed his cheek, making his cheeks turn redder than they were. We crawled into bed and he wrapped his arms around me. I snuggled close to his chest and rested my head where I could hear his heart beat. He tightened his grip around me and we fell asleep.
