11. The truth?
My mind was somewhere completely else. We sat at the back of the yard and the sun was going down. Harry had started a fire and all sat and grilled sausages. I myself was completely in the idea that I would walk down to the water and I didn't even hear when Niall was talking to me. He had to take his hand on my shoulder and he smiled a little iffy to me.
"What's it, honey?"
"I'm just tired ..."
Niall sat next to me and took a blanket around my shoulders. He kept his arm around me and sat near me. I let my eyes drift around all the faces and balked. Louis hadn't changed his mind and I felt hatred from Louis to Niall. I realized that I had totally missed him and I tried to land in reality.
"So how is it to be partners?" Zayn asked, looking curiously at us. Niall smiled big and he gave me a quick glance.
"It's going great!"
I smiled weakly and leaned my head against his shoulder. We had a good time together and I felt safe with him.
"You go fast forward ..." murmured Louis and all balked. He seemed not to care and looked at me and Niall. "I'm just saying that you seem to not think about the future?"
Niall sighed and seemed almost annoyed.
"Much like if this were wrong? Sometimes you meet the right partner and why not trying when you can do so?"
Louis looked down on the coals and didn't seem to agree.
"There might be people who fit better with Hope than you?"
I swallowed and avoided Louis. I felt Niall froze and he seemed ready to defend us. Still, I calmed him down by putting his hand against his leg. I didn't want that the two guys would fight or argue. I would get Louis to understand that Eleanor was the right partner for him.
It was late when everyone decided to go down to the beach. We took off our shoes and all ran down over the dark beach. I felt Niall held my hand and I laughed when we flew over the ground. I kept close to him and enjoyed all the smells, feelings and sounds.
"Everyone bathes!" shouted Zayn and ripped off his clothes. I saw how everyone was doing the same thing and immediately I froze. I didn't want to swim yet, I didn't want to go into the water, I wasn't ready. Niall noticed how I froze and he saw at me that I wasn't sure.
"You can stay here!" he whispered and smiled. "Everyone doesn't have to swim."
I nodded and swallowed.
"I'll wait here!"
I saw how everyone run down to the water and watched as they disappeared into the sea. I sat down on the sand, rolled together Nialls clothes. Then I closed my eyes and tried to hear what they were talking about. I loved to listen to the thoughts and it was something that I would miss when I became a human. I heard all giggled and everyone was just crazy in the water. Therefore, I wasn't prepared when I felt a hand on my shoulder. I was startled and looked up. Louis stood beside me and he was naked. I saw right away back to the sea and swallowed.
"Aren't you going to swim?" he asked. I shook my head. Louis sat down next to me and I felt how he almost forced himself on me.
"Are you sure?"
I nodded in reply and tried to collect myself. He felt an acquisitiveness and he didn't love me. It was as if he wanted to prove that I could be having an affair and he wanted to erase my innocent side.
"Too bad I didn't get to see your naked body."
I was cold all over and looked at him coldly.
"How can you do this to Eleanor?"
Louis played the innocent.
"I just talk?"
I shook my head.
"No, you're trying to seduce me, and I'm not interested. You have Eleanor and she loves you. You love her and you know you aren't going to leave her. Quit instead and become normal."
It happened fast! Louis flew himself over me and he lay on top of my body. He pressed his member between my legs and he tried to kiss me.
"NO!" I screamed as loud as I could. His hands pulled up my dress and he started trying to get into my panties. I felt his breath against my neck and he groaned just thinking about what would happen. I screamed and I kicked! I was scared and I had no idea what I would do. It didn't help to put my hand on him and it didn't help to try to calm him down.
"You fucking whore!" murmured Louis and raised his head. I saw how his eyes turned red and immediately I understood that he had a demon in him. "You think you can be like the others, but damn what wrong you have. You just want to fuck Niall and feel his cock in you."
I froze and just stared at Louis.
"Who are you?"
He pushed me down in the sand and laughed rat.
"Your enemy, I'm here to stop you. You can't fucking be a mortal girl. Shall you take away the joy of killing angels? I can fucking kill you and chop off your body in pieces."
I tried to get him away. When I failed, I tried anyway to calm down Louis (not the demon, but the person he was in!) I came close to I gave up when Gabriel appeared. He picked up Louis's body in the air and lad him down a short distance away. That's when I saw Niall on the beach. I realized that he saw Gabriel, he saw me and he saw what Louis had become. I saw fear in his eyes and I could hear that everything just spun inside him.
"What?" he got out. Gabriel spun around and met Nialls gaze.
"I took out the demon out of him."
Niall just yawned and then looked at me. I tried to put myself up and realized that he now had doubts about who I was.
I swallowed and looked down at the sand. What would I say? I didn't know which words fit in and I felt the contempt that Niall felt towards me.
"Who are you?" he continued. Gabriel hesitated and seemed to consider helping me. He let his eyes drift around us and in the end he smiled at Niall.
"She's the angel who's willing to die for your sake."
I stood up and I felt my whole body shook. I didn't know if I could meet Nialls eyes in the further. My lies had now arrived, and he knew now that I wasn't the person he thought. Niall came up to me and he searched my eyes.
"Honey, talk to me. What's happening?"
I started shaking and the tears came. Gabriel disappeared and there, I stood.
"It's a long story!" I whispered. "It might not be what you think and maybe you'll hate me when you know the truth."
"And who was he? The man I saw with wings?"
I closed my eyes.
"My boss Gabriel."
