We enter the house. I am trying not to cry, but it just comes out.
Me: Niall, I'm so sorry! I should've never gotten a job there! And now you're hurt! Oh my god I'm a terrible person! (I burst into tears)
Niall: Princess, no.
He holds me as I cry into his shirt. He hugs me tight and lies me on the couch with him as he strokes my back.
Niall: It's not your fault, it happens. I'm a big guy, I'll be fine. I'm just worried about you. I don't ever want to see you hurting. (He sheds a tear) I'm not mad at you princess. (He kisses my forehead) I love you to the moon and back and even further. Just know that I'll be here for you. Forever and always.
Niall: Just look into my eyes, and know that everything will be ok. (He kisses me passionately)
Me: I trust you. I love you Nialler.
Niall: I love you too. Alright beautiful. You want me to cook dinner? I'll do it!
Me: Ok! (I look up at him and smile)
Niall: Go relax ok? We'll forget about this whole thing. Just go relax love. (He kisses my nose)
I smile as I walk up the stairs to the bedroom, feeling a sense of calm.
I went to to our room. I feel a lot better now, but I'm still a bit worried that Niall may be upset at me. My phone rings. The caller ID says that it's Liam.
Me: Hey Li, what's up?
Liam: OMG Paul told me that Niall got hurt and you almost did? What happened? Is everyone ok?
Me: OMG Li... (I tell him everything)
Liam: Your boss did that?! What a dick!
Me: And I felt really bad that Niall got hurt and I thought it was my fault. He assured me it wasn't, and that he was fine, but I still think it's my fault. I'm just afraid he's annoyed or mad at me.
Liam: (he laughs) Love bug, he's not angry.
Me: How do you know?
Liam: Baby girl, I've known Niall for years. He's my best friend. He's very protective over the ones he loves. He's not mad at you, he's happy because he knows that you're ok. Now, he loves you, and that's why he protected you. The only thing Niall is mad at is the thing hurting you. Ok?
Me: Ok. Thanks Li. I feel a lot better. I love ya.
Liam: I love you too kiddo, now go see your leprechaun.
Me: Alright, bye bro.
Liam: Bye CiCi.
