We stopped at a small little shed by a lake in the middle of the woods.
"This is really nice." I said. Niall smiled. We got off our horses and tied them to a tree.
"It reminds me of my summer home. I used to go there all the time, even in the winter just to get away." I said.
"This is kinda like that, but only we know about it." He said. I nodded.
"You wanna try the tire swing?" He asked.
"You have a tire swing?!" I asked with a smile. He nodded.
He took my hand and took me over to it. My face got really warm and I got a strange feeling. Wait, I knew that feeling! I had a crush on Niall Horan! No wonder when I looked at pictures, I got weak. My legs felt like jelly.
"You OK?" Niall asked.
"What? Ya! Why wouldn't I be!" I replied. He smiled and we stood in front of the tire swing.
Niall didn't let go of my hand.
"Uhhh... Niall, you can let go now." I said. His face turned red.
"Ya, right... Sorry." He said and let go. I laughed a bit.
The water was just behind us and I wanted to push him. I smirked and pushed him in. He splashed into the water and I had to cover my mouth with my hands to keep from laughing, but I fell over laughing. He glared at me.
"Sorry -laughs- I couldn't help it! -laughs more- It was so tempting!" I said. I reached out my hand to help him out and he took it.
He pulled me in and laughed.
"You're right! That is funny!" He said, laughing. I shot him a mean look. "Aw, come on, you mess with the bull, you get the horns." He said.
"That's true, so watch out!" I said and splashed under the water. I grabbed his legs and he fell over. We both laughed. He splashed me so I splashed him back.
No one's POV:
They splashed each other and teased each other for hours. After a long while, they sat by the water.
"That was fun, but we should get back home, the sun will be setting soon." Jade said, starting to stand up. Niall pulled her back down.
"There's no reason we can't sit here for a little while, I mean, like the horses won't like us getting them wet." He said.
"You have a point."
The real reason Niall said that is so he could have some time with Jade. She made his heart beat quicker, his breathing unsteady, and his stomach flip, but he wasn't allowing anyone to know. Little did he know, he did the same to her. They sat and watched the sun disappear behind the trees. The bugs started coming out, so they hopped onto their horses and went home.
"Niall?" Jade asked half way home.
"Ya?" He replied.
"Have you ever felt like you can't find someone right to love, but they're right under your nose?" She let go of Rose's rein and put her hands behind her head.
"Ya, I've had that feeling before."
They walked in silence for awhile and only 5 times did they look at each other.
I smiled as we came to the house. The moon was full and perfect. Niall's eye twitched.
"Are you alright?" I asked, turning a bit.
"Ya, I'm fine." He replied.
"Are you sure?" I was actually really concerned.
"I'm fine." I looked back at the house. We got in.
"Listen, Jade, I'm sorry, the boys and I have to go somewhere, so we'll see ya tomorrow." Niall said and they all rushed out. I was confused.
I walked up to the bathroom close to my room and sat on the edge of the tub. I had cuts all over my waist from when I found out I was adopted 4 years ago. I was a bit depressed back then anyway, so I just did what I did. I was looking at them and thought if they would ever go away. I ran some water cuz I was gonna take a bath. When I got in, I kept thinking about my scars. I looked at my sides and they started to.. Disappear?! What?! I was confused. I shook my head thinking that it was a dream, but it wasn't. I just brushed it off, still a bit scared.
*The Next Morning*
I woke up in my tube top pj shirt and snoopy pants. The scars were still gone. I was still confused. The door opened downstairs and I hurried down.
"Hello!" I said cheerfully.
"Hi!" Niall said with a smile, but the boys looked unhappy.
"Is something wrong?"
"No, nothing." Zayn said.
The boys went upstairs like cranky arses. Niall stayed with me.
"What's up with them?" I asked.
"Oh, just a bit annoyed with me. If you ask me, it was funny." He laughed. I shrugged.
"By the way, that shirt looks good on you." He said.
"Thanks. It's my moms old one." I said. He nodded and we got something to eat.
"So, how was your sleep?".
"Good." I took a sip of coffee.
I ate my toast slowly, which was odd for me. I thought back to the note, how it said something about the true me, and back to the water making my scars go away.
"You alright, Jade?" Niall asked.
"Ya, fine... Just...." I trailed off.
"Well, I know it sounds crazy, but last night, after y'all left, I took a bath. 4 years ago I fell into depression and then my parents told me that I was adopted and I cut my waists." I started. Niall's eyes widened to hear that I cut myself.
"You what?!" He spat.
"Not important, but anyway, I was sitting there and I looked at my sides. Under the water, my scars disappeared! Look!" I lifted the side of my shirt a bit and then I showed him a picture I took back home 2 days ago. His eyes widened and he was silent.
"It can't be..." He muttered to himself.
"What?" I asked.
"Nothing." He said.
"What do you think it means?" He avoided the question.
"Want to go outside and talk about this?"
"No! I don't! Start talking Horan!" Niall took a step closer.
"Listen, if you want to know, then we should go outside so the boys don't know I'm telling you this." He said harshly. I rolled my eyes and we went out.
"OK, you might not believe me, but please just trust me." He said.
"Fine." I said. We sat down in the grass.
"The boys and I can control elements. Zayn controls air, Liam controls ice, Harry controls fire, Loui controls earth and I control water. There's only one person who can control all 5. I have a suspicion it's you because you already proved you can control air when we were arguing and now you've showed the water control." I laughed. "Don't believe me? Follow me to the pool." He said.
Still laughing, I followed close behind. We got to the pool and Niall stood by the edge. Next thing I know, he was moving the water through the air.
"Still don't believe?" He asked. I stood there, mouth open. He smirked and dropped the water.
"So if you're tell the truth then... I'm a freak!" I cried.
"Jade, calm down!"I paced nervously. I stopped and looked at him.
"Calm down? Calm down?! You want me to calm down when you just summed up that I'm even more of a freak then you 5?! No, just, no! I will not calm down!" He grabbed my shoulders.
"Jade, please. I know it's a lot to take in all at once. Try thinking that you're the only one with strange powers, cuz that's what I thought before I met the boys. Just please try to stay calm and let me explain."
"Explain?! What more do you have to explain?! I can fly?! (Note the sarcasm) You've summed it up! You each control an element, which equals FREAK! Then, you tell me that I can control all the elements, equalling, 1000 times the freak!!"
"Jade! Stop! Just try to be calm! I promise, it's not as bad as you think! It's cool more than freaky. Just please, listen." Hearing his soothing, calm voice, I relaxed.
"Sorry, I'll listen." We sat down.
"OK, like I said, I know it's a lot to take in, but you get used to it. It took us awhile to learn how to use our powers and how to control it. If you let us help, we can make it normal." I took a deep breath.
"Alright..." He hugged me.
"What if something happens and I hurt one of you?"
"You won't, and I'll make sure nothing hurts you."
"Can you show me how to do what ever you did before the boys know?" He nodded.
No one's POV:
For hours, Niall helped Jade to water bend. Jade was still thinking she was a freak, but she was just who she was met to me.
"I'm doing it!" Jade said excitedly, but lost it. Niall laughed.
"Jade, you need to focus on the water, anything else and you'll lose it." He said. She nodded and did it again.
She smiled to herself, but then remembered that this wasn't normal for someone to do. She sighed and continued.
"Again, I know it's a lot to take in, but we're here along side you. Back when we thought we were the only ones, we thought we were freaks and we freaked, but when we learned that we were not alone, we relaxed and realized that we were special in our own way." He said.
Jade dropped the water and looked at him. She was smiling a bit, because she knew she wasn't alone in this and she should be proud to be who she is. She hugged Niall and he smiled. He hugged her back and they both didn't realize it, but they both wanted it to be something other than a hug.
A/N Sorry it's short! Next will be longer!
