"I think I'm falling in love with you all over again." Autumn said to me.
"Are you- Really?" I asked smiling from ear to ear.
"I'm sorry.. I didn't mean-" She sighed.
"No, no, no! That's great! I never thought I'd say this, but thank you. If it wasn't for you I would've never realized my worst day could also be my best."
Autumn, I've never lost my feelings for you.. I've been wrapped around your finger since day 1. If we both love each other, why can't we be together?" I questioned ruffling a hand through my hair.
"Because.. Because I'm scared." She whispered tilting her head down so I couldn't see her face.
"What are you scared of..?" I asked putting my finger under her chin and tilting her head up so she was looking directly into my eyes.
"It's stupid, Ni. It's just something I can't get over.." She cried out with a tear escaping her eye.
"What is it..?"
"Niall. You're famous, you're extremely attractive, you can sing, you're sweet, you're nice- I could go on forever. But the point is, I'm scared you're gonna run off and find someone who's all the things you are. I'm not a model, I can't sing or dance, I'm nothing compared to all the people out there you can have."
"What if I only want you? What if I don't want some stuck up actress, or singer, or model. You're so insecure and you have no reason to be!" I sighed getting angry at myself for not making her feel beautiful a long time ago.
"I have no reason to be? Haha. Have you seen half of your friends that are girls? Have you looked at all the celebrities you've met? Trust me Niall, you don't want someone like me when you can have someone like you."
"Trust me, Autumn! If I didn't want you I wouldn't have had to fight myself to let you go twice so that you could be happy and have the best for you! THEN, fight myself to go get you back because I can't live without you! I need you more than anything!"
We sat there in silence, neither of us knowing what to say and not wanting to say the wrong thing.
"Alright.. We're throwing everything out here. Say anything you need to say or get off your chest. Opening up to each other is the only way.." I sighed.
"I was sick after you left Niall.. I couldn't eat, couldn't sleep, wouldn't leave my room. I had to go to the hospital a couple times.. It was like all the life got sucked out of me." Autumn cried in an ashamed voice. "All I wanted was for you to be happy, but it hurt that I wasn't the one to make you happy." She sniffled.
"I'm such an asshole. You should've told me.. I would've came home from tour! I would've took care of you. I'm so sorry, Autumn. I'm s-so sorry.." I cried hugging her tightly as if the world was gonna end. "I fucked up.. I know I have many times. But I won't again. I promise you." I whispered tracing my hand through her hair over and over, almost to calm both of us down.
"Do you see a future with me..?" She blurted out changing the subject and pulling away, looking into my eyes which are filled with tears.
"Every day of my life I see a future between us." I answered her in all honesty. Every day I picture what would've happened, where we'd be at this point if I haven't had screwed everything up.
"Can we go back to the way we were before.. I don't wanna start the relationship all over. Just start off where we left off."
"I would absolutely love that." I smiled.
Autumn wiped away my tears with her thumb and leaned in and kissed me deeply on the lips.
"So I guess you'll be moving back home?" I asked with a hint of hope and happiness in my voice.
"Definitely." She replied happily.
"Lets go get your stuff!"
We finally finished unpacking all the boxes, which took forever. But I don't care I'm just happy that I got my princess back.
"My princess is finally back in her castle!" I cheered jumping on top of her on our once shared bed.
"That might be the cheesiest thing I've ever heard in my life." Autumn laughed tiredly.
"I love you. I love you. I love you. I love-"
She cut me off with a kiss. "I love you, too." She smiled. "Now let's go to bed, I'm tired."
"Me too.." I yawned and pulled her into my chest with my arm around her waist.
"Good night, Ni."
"Night babe." I grinned knowing I finally got my princess back.
