5. Not The Other Girl

Grace's Pov

  I woke up hugging someone tight. I then remembered the events that played out last night and a tear slipped out of my eye. I sniffled and Niall stirred I looked up at him. He slowly opened his eyes and smiled down at me but it quickly fell. 

"Have you been crying?" He asked in a deep morning voice. I looked down and saw that my robe was falling loose and I was naked underneath. I shook my head and told him to get up.

"Why?" He asked confused.

 I pointed to my robe and he nodded and got out. I fixed my robe and went downstairs where Niall sat eating a big bowl of cereal. I sat next to him.

"We have to get my stuff" I stated staring at my home through the window.

"How?" He asked through a mouthful of cereal. 

"Dad will notice that I'm missing soon and he'll go looking for me" I explained. "When he leaves I'll go and get my things. I have always had a suitcase packed so I should be quick"

He shook his head "I'm going with you" 

"I should be okay Niall" 

"No I'm going with you and that's it" he stated in a finishing tone.

As I predicted my dad noticed I was gone and we got my stuff from my room. When I got settled I took a shower and got dressed.

 I wore a navy blue floral dress with a sweetheart neckline and straps that criss  crossed in the back. I also wore a braided dark pink braided belt, with a short mid sleeve jacket that matched the belt and a pair of pink floral boots. I braided my hair in a side fish tail braid and put a navy blue fedora on. 

 I propped up a picture of me and my brother next to a picture of my mom. I haven't dressed this way in a long time and now that I got away I feel like I'm free and I feel connected to her and my brother. I stared at the picture of my mom and started tearing up.

"You look just like her" I looked up in the mirror and saw Niall standing in my doorway. "You're mom I mean" he said

"Yeah" I said in a hoarse voice

"And you and your brother have the most unique grey in your eyes" he said walking behind me. I closed my eyes when he placed his hands on my shoulders.

"I'm sorry all this happened to you" he said nuzzling his face into my neck. I turned my head slightly so that my nose was being tickled by his hair. When he lifted his face up our lips were inches apart. He started leaning in and then stopped.

Niall's Pov

​I stopped leaning. I looked into her eyes and she nodded as if giving me permission to kiss her. And so I did. Our lips moved so perfectly together it was almost like magic.

​The kiss was interupted by my phone ringing. I groaned and pulled away. She smiled.

 I did the same and checked my phone .

From: Liam

Hey Ni. Just a reminder we have sound check today. Don't be late.

I texted him back and slipped my phone into my sweat pants pocket and changed my shirt.

We drove to the studio where Grace met everyone. The studio assistants love her especially Perrie. The two went off and started talking. 

"Niall she's beautiful mate" Liam said glancing at her every few minutes.

"I agree" Zayn said nodding.

"Yeah you got something special there" Louis said

"Yeah once he gets rid of" Harry cut himself off. "Debii!!" A fake smile plastered his face. Debii is my girlfriend none of my friends like her. I don't know why but they don't.

​She kissed me and in the corner of my eye I saw Grace get up and walk out. I hugged Debii and followed after her.

"Grace" I said following her

"Leave me alone " she said coldly

"Not until you tell me what is wrong with you" I said.

​She turned around and glared at me. "What did you think?" She yelled

"You thought you could just get all lovey with me and then go to your girlfriend" she said.

"Grace I'm sorry I didn't tell you I just-" she cut me off.

"Just nothing Niall." She said. "Look I'm not going to let this ruin our friendship so I want you to forget the kiss and our intimate times even if they lasted a day. Just forget it because I refuse to be the other girl." And with that she walked back in the studio.
