13. The new life
On Friday chose Niall and I to go together to the pub. He held my hand tightly and when we arrived to our friends, they balked. They just stared at us and Niall blushed slightly. We tried to be natural and sat down. Louis leaned slightly towards us and he looked curious out.
"Are you ... together?"
Niall nodded immediately and he put his arm around my shoulders.
Louis smiled at me.
"and you trust him? I mean, he's always been with lots of girls."
Niall got angry and looked at him coldly.
"I can change!"
Harry withdrew Louis and gave him a cold stare.
"Let them be. Can't you be happy for them?"
I felt a little silly, because everyone looked at us. It wasn't long before some girls came up to us, but they didn't say anything until Niall snorted at them.
"Sorry girls, but this guy is a boyfriend to the girl beside him."
They balked and just stared at us. Quickly they disappeared from the scene.
"This is going to be tough." Niall whispered and looked at me. "No one believes in me and everyone thinks ..."
I kissed him lightly.
"We don't care about what others think? Only you know it's me you should be with, I am satisfied."
Perrie hugged me later in the evening.
"I knew you were the only one that fitted together with him."
I laughed lightly.
"You're probably the only one who thinks so."
She laughed lightly and looked at me.
"Jenny, it's only fun if he calms down and you need a guy."
I agreed and looked over at Niall. He was calm and he sat perfectly still at the table. He was talking to Liam and he seemed satisfied.
"I hope he keeps his promise."
"I guess I would also be worried if I were you, but give him a chance."
I sighed and looked at her. I felt a little insecure because everyone seemed to think that Niall wouldn't be able to be faithful or to have just me.
On the way home I was quiet. Niall walked beside me and he saw at me that something was wrong.
"Did I screw up?"
I quickly shook my head and looked down at the ground.
"It's just that ..." I paused and looked quickly at him. "Niall, why does everyone think you are hopeless? I'm the only one who believes in you."
He raised his eyebrows.
"Do you understand now why I have been doing as I have done?"
I looked at him,
"How do you mean?"
Niall smiled weakly.
"No one does need anything from me. Everybody thinks that its no idea, but you believe in me and that's enough."
Niall and I had time to walk inside his door and then started his phone to ring. I chose to put myself in his couch and I saw that he seemed annoyed.
"No I'm not free." He said cold in the handset. "How did you get my phone number?"
I looked down at my hands and heard how he scolded the person. He put on and looked at me.
"I'll be honest. It was a friend of a girl I have ... " he paused and seemed almost ashamed. "Let's just say that I'm not interested."
I laughed a little bit.
"I think this is going to be difficult?"
He agreed with me and sat down beside me.
"But I'll..." the phone rang again. Niall replied, and the same thing happened again. "How did you get my number?"
I felt small, but at the same time I was happy because he really tried. He put on and turned off the phone completely.
"Now I understand that I lived a crazy life."
I laughed a little bit.
"Yes, you were everywhere and you..."
Niall kissed me to make me be silent.
"We don't talk more about it."
I woke up in the night by a knock and rang the Nialls door. He sat up and I heard him sigh.
"Go back to sleep." he mumbled and walked out of the bed. He put on a shirt and disappeared off down. I heard he opened the door, the people laughed and it seemed as if it was his friends. I lay there and tried not to worry. I heard Niall roared off and he slammed the door.
"Who was that?"
He just looked annoyed. He threw off his shirt and lay down next to me in bed. He took his arms around my body.
I saw at him that he didn't want to talk about it. He kissed me and closed his eyes.
"Why did they come, in the middle of the night?"
He opened his eyes again and looked at me.
"What do you think? They wanted to have a party!"
