Today's the day! Autumn's coming back and I have a huge surprise for her, for us. I have to pick her up at the airport at 11 and right now it's.. 10 o'clock! I still have to clean the house! Why am I such a procrastinator!?
I rushed downstairs to start with the dishes. That escalated to running the vacuum everywhere, dusting everywhere, picking everything up on the floor that wasn't meant to be there. Before I knew it, the house was spotless. I'm pretty proud of myself. I looked at the time. 10:45. Shit!
I ran upstairs and jumped in the shower. I showered completely in under 2 minutes. That should be a record. I threw on a pair of boxers, blue jeans that my mum got me for Christmas last year, and a plain black t-shit. I didn't bother worrying about my hair. I don't have time.. The drive to the airport is at least 10 minutes away.
I ran out the door slipping my shoes on, and running out to my range rover. The drive to the airport wasn't as long as I assumed it would be since I was going over the speed limit the whole ride. As soon as I got to the airport I parked then made my way inside quickly.
"Has the flight from LA landed yet??" I asked the poor old lady behind the desk. I must look like a crazy caveman, but I couldn't care less right now.
"No, sir. It's set to land any minute now. Please take a seat." She said pointing to the empty chairs. I rolled my eyes and took the closest seat to where she'd enter.
To pass the time I played games on my cellphone. Every time I would lose I would curse under my breath and keep trying, until I lost for the 12th time straight in flappy bird.
"Ugh! F**king bi-" I said a little to loudly, stopping myself before I could finish that sentence. That gave me a lot of scowls and dirty looks.
I looked at the time on my watch. 11:12. The plane should've been here by now! What if if crashed, what if it got- "Niall!" That very familiar voice echoed from across the large room, snapping me out of my negative thoughts.
"Autumn!" I yelled standing up and jogging to her. She dropped her luggage and jumped into my arms, I spun her around and about kissed her, but decided against it.
"You look so tan!" I chuckled setting her down and grabbing her arm.
"You should see my farmers tan.. It's terrible!" She laughed that contagious laugh that I felt like I haven't heard in centuries. I wonder where we stand right now. Are we together, are we not? I'm so confused.
"Bye Autumn." A guy about my height who was wearing a beanie, waved to Autumn and she happily waved back. I can't stand him.. I don't even know him. How do they know each other? Now I'm even more confused.
"Come on. Let's go back to the house." I said grabbing her bag and suitcase for her even after she said she could get it.
"About the house.." She sighed.
"I found a really nice house we can go look at.. It's already move in ready and our house now just brings back bad memories." I said to her slurring my speech out of nervousness. Why am I so nervous? "Sorry.. I thought you were going to say you didn't wanna stay there." I sighed, pulling at the ends of my hair.
"I was gonna say that.. Maybe we can go look at the house your talking about?" She asked.
"Definitely! I already have the paper work. If we wanted we could move in tomorrow." I joked, putting her things in the trunk and getting in the car.
She was silent after that, not a peep coming out of her mouth. She seems in deep thought..
"Ba- Autumn?" I asked. Calling her babe might not help my following question.
"..yeah?" She replied, looking out the window.
"Where do we stand, as a couple?" I asked switching lanes effortlessly on the highway. She was silent..again.
"I'm not sure.. We're not even dating, but we still live together." She said stifling a laugh. I'm glad she's not angry at my question.
"I know.. I just don't wanna waste any more time without you. I'm ready to settle down with you. See what our future holds."
"You 100% want to spend your future with me?" She asked turning her attention towards me instead of the passing buildings, cars, and people out the window.
"Yes! You're the only one I see and want a future with." I said pulling into the driveway. She was silent again.
"You know I love you more than life itself, and I know you love me. If you give me just one more chance I can show you I can be what you deserve." I cried out in frustration. I looked over at her expecting her to be upset and crying, but she was looking at me with the biggest smirk on her face.
"What? I just poured my heart out to you and you're smirking at me?" I laughed.
"You're cute." She chuckled getting out of the car and closing the door, I followed close behind her.
"I'm cute? I'm.. Cute??" I asked unlocking the front door.
"Yeah, you're cute- Wow! It's so clean in here! Who'd you pay to clean it??" She jokingly asked.
"Nobody! I cleaned it all by myself!" I said like a kid who just got his first gold sticker. I did a really good job making sure this place looked perfect. It still doesn't change my mind about moving though.
"Good job." She chuckled patting me on the head like I was a little kid. "I'll go unpack and we can go check out that house?" She asked. I nodded at her with a huge smile on my face. I can't wait until tonight.
We walked inside the house and I was taken aback by the beautiful sight. I thought the outside of this home was stunning, the inside is even better. There was a huge spiraling staircase that led to the 2nd story if the house, polished flooring that was mirror-like, a lovely brick fireplace! I'm in love with this home already.
Our guide Jonathan took us to look at the rest of the house and it was amazing. The master bedroom has a balcony, a massive bathroom, and an even bigger closet. I bet Niall owns more clothes than I do. I laughed at the thought. The other two bedrooms are nice too.
Niall likes the basement the most though since there is a man cave down there. I can already see it.. The guys will be over drinking, laughing, and watching whatever soccer or football game is on.
Finally we got to see the outside and I gotta say, it's one of my favorite spots of the house. It has a pool, a hot tub, a patio for when we have parties, and it has lights draped around the whole backyard. I love it. I can't wait to see what it looks like when it's dark out.
"So Mr. and Mrs. Horan.. If it's a yes, it's all yours." Jonathan smiled at us. Niall looked down at me with an even bigger smile on his face. He just called us Mr. and Mrs. Horan..
"It's a yes." We both agreed.
"Great! I'll make the call. Congratulations." Jonathan said clapping his hands and disappearing outside to use his phone.
Niall grabbed me and pulled my into a tight hug, a horan hug. I had to use all my strength not to crash my lips onto his even though I wanted to so bad.
"We'll move in tomorrow? I can't stay in that house again." Niall said letting go of me.
"Yeah, definitely." I agreed.
"Alright, let's go. I have something special planned." He grinned at me after checking the time on his phone. Oh this should be interesting. I can't even imagine what he has planned.
