I looked around the performers area and noticed that all that was left was the five of us and that band of four. The teacher decided that instead of just choosing one member to go on, that all of us would go on individually. I smiled over at Niall as he grinned back, finally letting go of Josh. He seemed to be finally enjoying his trip. Ms. Peazer dismissed us all to our rooms so I grabbed Niall's hand and we walked back to the room.
I sat down on my bed leaning up against the headboard as Niall laid his head down on my lap and played with my fingers. I just smiled down at him as he did that for the next few minutes in silence.
Niall. "Harry?" He asked looking up at me with those bubbly blue eyes.
Harry. "Yes Niall?"
Niall. "What we're you talking about with Louis the other day?"
Harry. "What do you mean babe?" I furrowed my eyebrows and just pulled my fingers through his hair as his eyes closed then opened again.
Niall. "The other day, you and Louis were talking about some girl in some room? What was that about?" I nodded as realization hit me.
Harry. "That was about this relationship I had. It's all in the past now"
Niall. "Oh" he looked saddened as curiosity settled in his eyes so I just laughed at him.
Harry. "Do you wanna know what happened?" I laughed as he hesitantly nodded.
Niall. "You don't have to say if it hurts you too much. I'll be fine not knowing if it makes you feel better. I was just curious and all but-" he rambled.
Harry. "Niall, I'll be fine. I just, I just need a second." I breathed out trying to calm down. This would be only the second time that I've told someone the story of Eleanor and I. I only told my family we broke up due to differences.
Harry. "Well it all started in-" I began when the door was opened by Louis, Liam, and Zayn.
Louis. "Hey boys, getting cozy huh?" He winked at us as I rolled my eyes.
Harry. "Actually, I was just telling Niall a story" I spoke putting emphasis on story as he nodded.
Zayn. "Oh a story! I wanna hear!" He exclaimed and grabbed a chair and Liam.
Louis. "Actually boys I think we should go, it's actually getting late and we should let them have time together."
Liam. "It was your idea to came here. What's really going on here Lou?" I sighed and bit my lip looking up at the boys.
Harry. "Lou, could you take them to your room and explain? It's difficult enough to tell one person again, much less four?" I sighed rubbing my hands over my eyes already feeling the tears form.
Louis. "Of course, C'mon lads." He said bringing them out of the room as Niall sat up.
Niall. "Listen Harry, if it pains you this much-"
Harry. "Niall, if we're gonna date then I'm going to have to be honest with you." I sighed gathering myself together.
Harry. "Well, when I was in-" suddenly the door burst open by none other than Ms. Peazer.
MS. "Okay boys, be in the stage area in five minutes. We have an announcement." She said closing the door.
Harry. "Are you kidding me? It's like the universe doesn't want me to tell you" I sighed as he stood up off the bed.
Niall. "Or maybe the universe is saying you aren't ready to tell me. Maybe in a little while you will be ready." He smiled helping me off the bed then putting his arms around my neck.
Harry. "Maybe the universe is saying I should kiss you right about now" I smirked down at the little blond boy.
Niall. "Maybe the universe says you can" he smiled. I leaned down and pressed my lips to his. Soft but firm like a flower. We were interrupted by a knock on the door.
Harry. "Are you kidding me?" I muttered pulling away from him as we walked to the door opening it to Louis.
Louis. "Did you tell him? Oh and Ms. Peazer says we need to be down there like right now."
Harry. "People kept interrupting us so no not yet" I sighed letting Niall out the door and grabbing his hand as the five of us walked downstairs.
Ms. "Hello everyone. We have some important and devastating news. I'm telling everyone this because it's now an important thing to hear-"
Suzie. "Shouldn't we wait on Carrie Miss?"
MS. "That's the thing, everyone needs to beware. Carrie was wandering off the limits of where I said and was kidnapped. She was last seen in Orléans. You guys need to stay in Paris and with someone. I can't have another student go missing. The family has been informed and the authorities are on the search. Also, there will be no more singing competitions for a while. That is all, you may carry on with your tasks" she announced as we everyone headed back to their separate rooms.
Niall and I walked back to our room in silence. When I unlocked the door I noticed a note on the desk. I picked it up and it said:
Hey bro, my manager says we will have to leave earlier than planned. Sorry I couldn't say goodbye but I'll see you later. (The manager downstairs let me in your room)
I showed Niall the note as he nodded as we locked the door and sat down on the bed.
Harry. "Finally, come over here and I'll tell you what happened." He nodded and sat down beside me and grabbed my hand intertwining our fingers. I just smiled at him and looked at his baby blue eyes. I finally felt strong enough to explain this story without bursting into tears. Niall gave me strength that I needed and.... I loved him for that.
Harry. "Well, when I was in primary school, I met this girl. Her name was Eleanor Jackson and we became friends. When I met her I just thought she was this perfect person and there was nothing wrong with her. I noticed how she was also a bit flirty with me. What I didn't notice was, she drove all of my friends away, except Louis." I paused and looked down at my lap. It was difficult sometimes to look back but you've gotta get through the bad days to appreciate the good ones.
Harry. "I thought she was just amazing. I didn't care what I had to do to be with her. Eventually we started dating and this is when she became really... what's the word... possessive. I thought she was just being a caring person. I thought she was just protecting me. I should've protected myself from her. We dated four years. At around two years she left school and became a Victoria's Secret Angel. She came back and during summer break, she decided to bring me to Paris. We stayed at this hotel and in this exact room. It all fell apart on that bed." I told him pointing over at his bed that was made neatly with the blankets folded and the pillows stacked. The duvet looked fresh so the cleaning lady must have replaced them while we were gone.
Harry. "I was exploring Paris and trying to find the Eiffel Tower. When I found it, I came back to the hotel to come get her to show it to her. When I walked in, she was sleeping with her manager. She had the nerve to ask me if I wanted to watch thinking I found it sexy. I found it disgusting, slutty, and trashy. I got a different flight and broke up with her over the radio dedicating the song Bye Bye Bye by *Nsync to her." I laughed at the memory.
Niall. "That's a hell of a lot of by's " he laughed but squeezed my hand.
Niall. "Like you said, it's all in the past now but I respect and appreciate that you told me. Is that though why you dated so many girls?" He asked as I nodded.
Harry. "Didn't want to get hurt. You can't get hurt if you only date someone for like a week."
Niall. "Okay, we haven't even dated for a week though" he frowned and looked down at his lap as I grabbed his hands in mine looking in his eyes.
Harry. "We haven't dated for a week, we have dated for two days. We haven't dated for a week but we were friends first. We haven't dated for a week but you ask about me. We haven't dated for a week but you are a caring and loving person who can always make me smile. We haven't dated for a week but 13 days ago I couldn't stand you. We haven't dated for a week but today I realized that I love you and I couldn't possibly live without you." He expressed to him as tears welled up in his eyes.
Niall. "Harry.... we haven't dated for a week though. How can you love me?" He questioned letting go of my hands and grabbing kleenex.
Harry. "You don't have to be dating someone to love someone. I've liked you for a pretty long time now. You always seem to find new things in life to enjoy. You always have smile on your face but when you cry I just wanna kiss that frown off your face." I smiled as he giggled at my statement.
Harry. "You always have this light about you where my favorite part of the day is being able to call you mine and hold you at the end of the day. You always act like yourself. I could just go on and on but we don't need you looking sunburned do we?" I winked at his flustered face which was getting redder and redder as I went on.
Harry. "As I once heard from a wise man.
Cause there'll be no sunlight
If I lose you, baby
There'll be no clear skies
If I lose you, baby
Just like the clouds,
my eyes will do the same if you walk away
Everyday, it will rain,
rain, rain " I sung to him as he just had his face in his hands.
Harry. "Hey, don't hide that face. It's beautiful, red or not"
I told him bringing his hands down as he just kept on blushing. It looked like he was sweating he was blushing so hard. I laughed and just hugged him to my chest as he buried his face in the crook of my neck. We stayed like that, in silence, until there was a knock on the door. I groaned and was about to get up when I noticed he had fell asleep. I tried readjusting him but he just grabbed onto my collar. I laughed and picked him up bridal style and carrying him to the door trying to unlock it. I finally got it and in came the three boys.
Louis. "Dang dude, that took forever. I thought you were banging." He laughed then saw the sleeping boy in my hands. I stepped over to the bed and laid him down then went back over to the boys.
Harry. "No, I was just telling Niall the story then he fell asleep on me"
Liam. "We're sorry about that lad but you've got Ni now so... take care of him"
Harry. "I will, I promise" I smiled at the sleeping boy knowing I was finally getting my happily ever after.
Well, there you go. The (possibly) final chapter to Catch Me When I Fall. I had so much fun writing this story and it is probably the one I'm most proud of. I will miss writing this story but when one door closes another one opens. Thank you all for the support and everything. I ship Narry and didn't just do it for reads. But thank you all and I think that's a good note to end it on. Peace!
