Still I could get no air at all. The only thing I could do was staring at the giggling girl in Niall's arms. Pressed so tightly to his chest that it seemed like he was never letting her go.
"I think this is good enough right baby? He has paid enough for not believing in you anymore." He said to her and I finally was able to take a step closer to them, to her. The person that made Niall's life a little better.
"Lauren, is that really you?" I said softly and tried to touch her face, but stopped when my hand was an inch away from her face. I was afraid that she was like a ghost and that if I touched her she would disappair again, and it would be my fault.
"Daddy? Why is uncle Louis as white as a ghost? Is he sick?" her sweet angel voice asked and a smile drew on my face.
"No he is not, you just scared him a little, just like you did with the others." She giggled loudly and I gained the courage to take a step closer and finally touch her blushing face.
"Uncle Louis stop it! That tickles!" she squealed and tried to slap my hand away from her face. "Please uncle Louis, you know I'm ticklish." her giggles made me feel alive again and I could see the smiles growing on the faces of the other lads too.
"Uncle Zayn! Please let uncle Louis stop tickling me." I turned my face to Zayn's and saw tears in his eyes, just like I saw with Liam.
"Group hug, come on, I know you want that." Harry said and pulled us all together, which caused Lauren to giggle more and me, Liam and Zayn to cry out loud.
"What happened to you baby? Why did you run away, why didn't you come back sooner? Don't you have any idea how worried we were?" we all said and she cuddled up to Niall's chest.
"Calm down guys, lets just give her some space and start the thing she wants most." Niall said and Lauren started giggling and clapped her hands.
"Princess dresses! You all gotta dress up like a princess!" she squealed and we all looked at Niall and Harry who were laughing their asses off. What did we miss?
"We kinda promised her to do whatever she wanted to do today. That could have been just cuddling with Niall all day or going to a zoo or anything but our Lauren choose the best option ever." I stil wasn't over the shock that she was there. Like for real, or was it just a dream, a nightmare, that was there because of the cruel things I said to Niall yesterday.
"Lauren wanted a movienight, a disney princesss movienight to be exact. With all of us, dressed up like princesses." Harry said and he laughed while Lauren was just giggling and smiling in Niall's arms.
"As... As princesses? Are you kidding me?" I said and shook my head. "you gotta be kidding me. How will we ever find 5 princess dresses, our size?" Niall laughed along with Harry and handed Lauren to Emma, who hugged her and kissed her forehead.
That girl took so much of a mother figure to that little girl's life, and her and Niall only knew each other for like a year? No, they met a couple days after he got Lauren so they knew each other for nine months, not more than that.
But still, even when Emma and Lauren really have been together for about three weeks over the past nine months, she acted like a big sister, a mother, to her and in the look on Lauren's face I saw that she saw her as her mother.
I couldn't think of the pain that she would have when the relation between Niall and Emma would suffer under the pressure of us being in One Direction. We all have had the pain and it hurts like hell, but for Lauren... She would be heartbroken, she would miss her mother figure in her life again and as much as we could try to be like that, no one can ever replace a real mother, or Emma.
"Daddy already bought dresses! With uncle Harry! You gotta wear them! Please." she said and looked at us with those big eyes that could even make the most heartless man melt.
"Of course they will wear them baby. You can go with Emma so she can get dressed and we will try to get those boys in their dresses too." Niall and Harry said together and she giggles happily.
"Thank you daddy! I love you!" she blew him a kiss when Emma laughed and walked back to the house again with Lauren still on her hip.
Now the questions were fired at both Niall and Harry. But they didn't seemed to mind, it was like they already knew this was coming and prepared themselves for it.
When Emma brought me back inside to get dressed I couldn't stop lauging.
"Uncle Louis was just like a ghost! And uncle Liam and Zayn were the same! I am not that scary right?" Emma laughed with me and I helped her by zipping her zipper on her back.
"Of course not sweety, you are anything but scary. They just didn't expected you to be here at all. That's it" And I hugged her tight, she was the bestest and I don't think I could have been as happy as I was.
"are you comming? The boys must be ready and wearing their dresses." Emma said and I jumped up. "of course I am ready! I wanna see daddy as a princess!"
And that is what happened. Emma and I went down and saw daddy and uncle Harry, Liam, Louis and Zayn wearing their dresses which made me laugh like I had never before.
I was home.
