16. The weekend
In the evening went Niall and Destiny out for a walk. They walked past the fields as they so often run across. They walked past the horses, which at one time been a topic of conversation and they went down to the lake.
"I saw when Eleanor touched you." whispered Destiny. Niall blushed and just stared at her. She blushed slightly and lowered her eyes. "I couldn't let you go with my eyes and that's when I chose to make the mistake. I wanted to show you that I was better than she was."
Niall swallowed and frowned.
"So everything is my fault?"
Destiny shook her head quickly.
"No, it's not your fault." She met his gaze. "I was just filled with jealousy and I didn't saw that I ran over you."
Niall stopped and watched her closely.
"Did I hurt you so much?"
She shook her head.
"No, I hurt myself by hoping. I was hoping that you would see me in the same way as you saw her."
"Sorry!" whispered Niall quickly and he took her in his arms. "I should have seen you, but I only saw my brother before me. It felt so wrong that we did what we did back then. But I changed my mind."
Destiny was startled and dropped him.
"I think I loved you back then, but I was so sure of my case. Fact that I would find a girl and be like everyone else."
She smiled awry.
"And now you're like everyone else?"
Niall shook his head and gave her a light kiss.
"No, you're still the same person deep down and we're still brothers."
"But I'm a she?"
"Harry, you can change your sex, but you can't change your personality."
The weekend went on and become something good. Destiny held his tongue and she said nothing more about Harry or about herself as a guy. Niall saw that Marry and Tom loved her, but not in the same way as they had loved Harry. It hurt Niall that the truth didn't came out, but still they would never understand.
"You have to come back soon." said Marry, when they packed their bags back in the car again. It was Sunday and they were going back to school.
"We promise." Niall whispered and hugged them. Destiny hesitated and she stood by the car door. She was almost in tears when her parents chose to hug her.
"Welcome to the family!" whispered Tom and smiled at her. "You can see us as your family and call if you need anything. Niall and you are the ones we care about."
Destiny had tears in her eyes and nodded.
"I love you too."
Niall smiled and he was no longer worried. Maybe it would be good anyway?
