I helped Niall through to the room everyone was getting ready in and straight away, he sat down by the small table in the middle of the room.
"Who's next?" I shouted and went to my makeup chair.
Whilst I finished everyone else's makeup, Niall had managed to take his beanie, jumper and top off and got given his food and red bull. "Niall, you need your makeup done." He waved his hand motioning to his food. "Niall. Come on. I need to get ready still." I begged but he didn't look up. I sighed, put all my brushes down and walked over to him and sat down in front of him. "Niall." I said normally, he still never looked up so I took some food off his plate and began to eat it, making him look up. "Makeup." I demanded and gave him a serious look.
His face never had any expression, it only read 'Do you seriously mind?'. "You took my food." He said dully. I nodded and smirked. I leaned over the small table and took his can of redbull and drank some of it. "Stop taking my food!" He cried. I shookk my head and stood up.
"Sorry Han, I need to get his hair done." Lou came over and began to so his hair. I stuck my tongue out at her and looked back at Niall.
He shook his head and laughed. "Here." Niall pulled me over to him and whispered in my ear. "It's a good job I love you." He kissed my jaw bone and let me go. I smiled and took my phone out and seen I just got a message from Louis.
I looked over at him and he nodded towards my phone. I opened the message and sighed.
'I heard that...'
I looked back up at him and he shook his head. I quickly replied.
'... Heard what?'
He just shook his head and carried on getting dressed. I looked back at Niall and he had an angry look on his face still. I stood up and took a picture but he looked up and seen.
"Niall, sit still." Lou slapped his head making him look away I smiled and walked away.
"I'm just going to get dressed." I motioned down at my baggy top and leggings and went up stairs and to Niall's room which had everything in it for me to get ready.
Just as I went to my dress bag, my name was shouted. I sighed and ran down the stairs and into the room, Niall was sitting on my makeup seat with a big goofy grin on his face. I shook my head and walked over and put my brush belt on. "I like how you waited till I was upstairs." I joked and poked his cheek as I got his shades out of my box. He just shrugged and looked at me. I looked at him and pursed my lips before leaning close to his ear and whispering. "It's a good job I love you." I kissed his jaw bone and loved back to what I was doing before. Copying his actions from before.
I heard him laugh to himself then he grabbed my wrist and pulled me round and down so I was eye level with him. I smirked and didn't make any attempt to move back. He pursed his lips, pecked my lips lightly then pushed me up.
"Done! Right, I'm going to get sorted." I said and walked out of the room, helping Niall up in the process. "You need anything else?" I asked Niall as he set himself on the crutches.
"Yeah, I need to go get ready but my things are upstairs. You can help me up there?" He began to hot to the door.
I sighed and pulled him back. "Get dressed in here like everyone else. I'll bring your clothes down." I began to walk away but he grabbed my wrist.
"I want to get ready upstairs." He nodded and began walking to the stairs.
Once I helped him up the stairs and to his room I sat him down on is bed and walked over to my dress bag. "Um, I got you some stuff..." Niall trailed off and pulled out a big white box from under his bed and pushed it over to me.
"Niall-" He cut me off.
"I don't wanna hear it. Just shut up, get ready and don't say a word until you're finished." His tone was harsh, but I knew he was just being serious. I nodded and turned around to unzip my dress bag.
The bag fell to the floor and this was a different dress from what I had got from the small dress shop down the road. I looked at Niall and he raised his eyebrows. I shook my head and hung it up on the curtain pole.
I walked back to the box, opened it and shook my head, about to open my mouth but Niall glared at me. He's so undeniably cute when he's trying to be forceful.
The first thing I seen when I looked back down at the box was the small victorias secret bag. I picked it up and opened it the unwrapped one of the two things in the bag. First was a black, lace, strapless bra that had a clear band to go around the back so only the front was visible. I smirked at Niall who was lying back on the bed and watching me the whole time and walked towards his bathroom with the new bra in my hand. "Babe, come here." He called. I sighed and walked back to him. "Don't." He took hold of my hand and sat up, slowly. I knew what he was talking about, but I wasn't going to listen. "I know you won't listen to me." He read my mind... "But please, I love you. Not just a little part of you, but every single part of you. Shit, I even love the ground you walk on. Hanna, nothing will make me love you less. If anything, it will only make me love you more, which I don't think is possible but it will. I promise you." I must love this boy too much right now.
I sighed and turned around, beginning to walk to the bathroom. I got to the door, closed it in front of me and turned back around to face Niall. "It's a good job I love you." I said quietly and took my top of, followed by my bra then put the other on back on. I had my eyes closed the whole time whilst my hands shook. "Do you mind?" I walked to Niall and held my hair up, waiting for him to fasten my bra up.
"You're perfect." He whispered and kissed my naked shoulder. I stood up and rushed over to the dress, placing it over my head and buttoning up the top of it. "Babe." Niall reached over the bed and pulled my hand to him. "I meant it. Every single word." He searched my eyes for something, but I gave nothing, nothing until this.
I pulled my hand away before slipping my leggings and panties off from today then slipped on the new ones he bought me. "Niall, I'm not like everyone else you've been with. I'm not confident with my body like Barbra was." He tightened up at the mention of her name. "I'm sorry I'm not like them and I don't reach up to their standards, but I try. And I try damn well hard." I only just noticed a tear rolling down my cheek. Niall looked hurt but it was nothing compared to what I felt.
"Stop trying." He muttered and looked away.
Stop trying? Is he mad?! My eyes wide I walked over to him and slapped his left cheek, hard. "Stop trying? You seriously just want to see me give up on everything?" I shouted.
"No. I don't want you to be anything like those girls. They all hurt me, it may not look like it but they did. You're perfect Hanna. Tell my why I am wrong to think that!" His voice was hurt and angry.
"Because this, this is what people like you should avoid." I motioned to my body.
Everything went silent and the only sound heard was the voices and music from down stairs and our heavy breaths. The tension in the room could be cut with a knife, our eyes burned into each others like lasers.
"Lou want's to do your hair, Han." Louis barged into the room without warning. I tore my eyes away from Niall but could feel him staring at me still. "Oh, I interrupted something didn't I?" He looked between me and Niall. I knew he could tell, my eyes were glazed over and so were Niall's.
I shook my head. "No, eh, I'll be down in a sec." I put on a fake smile but even he could see through it. He nodded his head and quickly left. I just stared at the door, not wanting to make the awkwardness even bigger by looking at Niall. "I gotta go." I looked at him and quickly left the room and ran downstairs.
Soon as I walked into the room, everyone looked directly at me. I shrugged and walked over to Lou and sat down. "I know exactly what to do." She smiled and began. "Lulu! Makeup!" She shouted and Lulu came over, she's not a makeup artist, but she did it in collage but got better on fashion so she's now the boy's stylist. Throughout the whole time they were doing my face and hair, I just sat there looking forward, trying my hardest not to think about Niall.
Lulu finished before Lou and when she went away I sniffled a little. "Don't cry." Lou whispered in my ear. I slowly nodded my head. Lulu came back with a packet and 2 nail polishes, the packet had black and white flower nail stamps on for my finger nails and I guess the 2 nail polishes were for my toes, they were black and a matte top coat. "Done." Lou sighed and moved onto Liam's hair.
"Same. You wouldn't mind sitting here for 5-10 minutes would you?" Lulu asked kindly. I nodded my head and she walked away.
I sat there, just looking straight ahead of me. "Hey, I thought you could do with this." Harry gave me my phone and sat down beside me on another chair. I smiled and looked down at it. "What happened?" He asked me, leaning forward. I shook my head, not wanting to talk about it. "He was pretty upset." He mumbled after a while of just looking down.
"Look, I really don't want to talk about it. So can we please not have this conversation." I mumbled. He nodded in defeat and took his phone out.
Lux came over and stood in front of Harry, playing with the bottom of his untucked shirt. "Lux, you look pretty." Harry picked her up and sat her on his knee, her black dress puffing out everywhere.
They started having a conversation about Lux's dress but I went on my phone and got distracted by twitter's latest news.
After a while, I got up and went upstairs. I slowly opened the bedroom door and walked in, Niall was still in the same spot as before. "What did you mean?" He mumbled once I closed the door. I looked at him confused. "You said people like me. What do you mean?" He said quietly, his voice having no emotion.
"I-I err, I um, I mean people like you. You're good, you could get any girl in the world and they wouldn't turn you down. I'm not good for you, I'd get you hate from your fans for choosing me. Out of all the millions of people you could have, you choose me. You shouldn't." I mumbled the last part.
He shook his head and stood up. "But I don't want any girl in the world. I want you." He slowly hobbled over to me on his crutches. "I always wanted you." He whispered, close to me now. I shook my head and looked to the side. He sighed and stepped back. "I'll be downstairs. Take everything that's in the box then read the none at the end." He mumbled and left.
I walked over to the box once he was gone and pushed all the tissue paper to the side. The first box was a shoe box, I opened it and a gorgeous pair of white platform heel sandals. The next box was a pandora box, but it was filled with 2 charms, both flowers but different styles, a chain for my bracelet, white flower earrings and a white flower ring. In the next bag there was a white clutch, wrapped in more tissue paper, it was square and had a silver catch at the top to fasten it. In the final box, it was 100ml of my favorite perfume, Daisy Dream by Marc Jacobs. I smiled and lifted the note out of the bottom of the box.
I know this is weird because you already had your whole outfit planned out, but I seen this dress and knew you'd love it. It was more you than the original one you had. And the shoes never looked very comfy, the slim back that would rub and the thin heel that would kill your ankles, no no no. I don't really think it's cold enough for a coat now, and the jewelry, well I knew you wanted all of the things in here.
Hopefully you'll like the shoes, well I kinda know you will because I seen you'd looked at them on your search history. Don't kill me, please?
Love you loads, please be my date tonight.
I looked at my phone and typed a simple message to Niall. 'Yes.' Was all it said, simple but he's know what it means. I tucked my phone in the clutch and put some money in along with a lip gloss and a small version of my new perfume then made my way down stairs. I walked into the room and everyone was ready, Zayn awkward coughed and everyone looked my way.
Niall smiled, whilst everyone else stood there, eyes wide and jaws dropped. "Um, hi?" I mumbled, trying to break the awkwardness. "Do I have something on me?" I looked down in panic and tried to see the mark.
"No, Han. You look good. Really good." Lou smiled. I smiled and blushed a light crimson colour. "Aww. Come on, we're having drinks for a while until we have to go." I nodded and walked in, setting my clutch down on my makeup table on my way past.
I stood by the table full of drinks, finding something to drink. "You look good." I looked over and smiled at Niall. "Really good." He smirked. I looked over again and pursed my lips. He laughed and handed me a can of berry cider. I thanked him and went and sat on the grey sofa in the corner by my self. "Um, excuse me Ms. I think you may have took my seat." Niall came over and stood right in front of me. I looked to the large space beside me and then back to him.
"There's a seat there." I pointed to the large space beside me.
"But I was sitting there. And I would very much like to sit back there." He said in a posh voice. I shook my head and laughed, but soon, I was laughing 50x harder. He turned around and sat on me, squishing me in the corner of the sofa. "You see, it's not as comfy as before." He wiggled his bum.
"Niall." I groaned. He laughed and sat still. "Please move." I mumbled, crushed. He stood up, enough for me to move so I wiggled over and he sat down where I previously was, right beside me.
"So... My date." He held his hand out and I put mine in it, locking our fingers together. "I'm sorry about before." He mumbled and rested his head on my shoulder.
"Me too. Can we just forget about it?" I mumbled, hoping he'll say yes.
I felt him nod his head, I smiled and took a sip of my cider.
"Car's here!" Lou shouted, Lou's like the Mum for everyone here, she's so nice to everyone.
Paul walked over to Lou and directed everyone. "Right, boys in the car to my left, as well as Sophia and Eleanor and me, everyone else get in the car to my right. Everyone else, please cut straight through the red carpet, don't stop just go. Go." He said, he comes across scary but it's just a cover up. Perrie had to go with her own band, Little Mix, but she'll meet up with Zayn later on.
We all began too go outside of the house, I slowed down and waited for Niall to catch up to help him down the few steps in front of the front door. "Not even a day in and they're doing my head in." Niall mumbled. I laughed and shook my head.
"You'll get used to them." I mumbled and began to help him down the steps.
"I'll get used to all this help." He stopped moving and looked up and me slowly. I shook my head again and rolled my eyes.
"Keep moving." I joked and lightly pushed him.
"Come on love birds. The boys need to go." Lou joked.
We finally made it to the bottom and Niall went straight to his car, giving me a small smile before getting in. I turned around and got in the car I was meant to be going in, I sat there silent for a while, just waiting for everyone to get in. "Everyone, there's not going to be enough space in this car, one of you go with the boys." They had to have a security guard in this car, Lux had to stay with Lou and Lulu isn't close with the boys, everyone else wanted to be with each other and everyone just looked at me.
"Fine." I whispered and moved into the other car. "Any space?" I looked inside the car and gave them an awkward smile.
They all laughed and I soon got a space beside Harry on the end. Niall was behind me, next to him was Liam, next to him was Zayn, beside Harry was Paul and Louis, Eleanor and Sophia in the back.
Half way there and the boys were already arguing over who got out last, the only people who were quiet were me, Niall and Paul. Soon, I got a gentle tap on my shoulder. I turned round and seen Niall, his face close as he whispered. "Walk with me on the red carpet?"
I shook my head. "I can't. I have to go straight in, Paul's orders." I whispered. He sighed and sat back in his chair, annoyed. "Hey." I whispered and held my hand back around the side of the seat. He gladly took it and I turned back around.
The whole way there, me and Niall played with each other's fingers and squeezed hands, it was just a small gesture but was cute, in all ways.
"Right, Hanna, you get out first and go straight in by your self, the others will arrive straight after you so you won't be alone for long. Boy's, Niall is out first, then Harry, then Zayn, Liam and Sophia out at the same time and Louis, you and El are last." He said, his serious side showing. We all nodded and soon the door was being opened.
I quickly hopped out and helped Niall out then walked away, but my arm got pulled back. "I don't want you to wait alone." He whispered in my ear. I nodded and stood awkwardly beside Niall. Paul glanced over and shot me a look, demanding me to go. "Don't." Niall whispered to the side to me.
"I have to." I whispered back whilst Niall posed for pictures with the group. "I'll see you later." I whispered and made my way down the red carpet, alone.
"Hanna Twist, rumors have it you and Mr. Styles have been getting close lately, care to explain?" A microphone was shoved in my face, I stood there frozen, not knowing what to say.
I felt a soft hand be placed on my back. "No, they are rumors and nothing more." Lou interrupted. "Come on." She walked me forward to the main part. This whole time I feel like I'm being watched, I know I am, but like purposely watched by someone.
The boys and everyone have just settled down at the large round table, all of the boys were made to sit next to each other, but Niall was sat on the end of them all and I sat opposite them all.
Soon, One direction's category was called out. "Good luck." I mimed and he smiled at me, I know this is the category they think they'll lose in, but I have a good feeling.
"One Direction!" Was called out and all the boys and everyone at the table stood up, clapping and shouting and smiling.
They all went up to the stage and Niall was the one to speak into the mic. After he made his speech he began to thank people. "Also, thank you to every body on that table there. Without you all, none of this would be possible. And Hanna, our makeup artist, without you, I wouldn't be up here smiling. She's the best girlfriend any boy could ask for, Love you Han." He looked down at me while I sat there, completely shocked at his sudden announcement.
The host went back up on stage to talk to the boys. "Wow, Niall. Nobody was expecting that now." He gave a smile and a wink and laughed. "So boys, how are you feeling about this award?" She asked the other boys.
Louis was first to speak up. "Actually, can I just say, this is actually the first we know about them being back together. Just saying. And yeah, it was completely un-expected, we thought we wouldn't get this award with all the other amazing artists in the category." Louis said and they all came back from the stage.
Soon as Niall got here, I gave him 'the look'. He smirked at me, knowing it would win me over. I smiled and rolled my eyes. He motioned me over to him before he sat down so I went over and stood in front of him. "Congratulations." I mumbled, I knew everyone was watching and listening to us from the table.
"Cut the shit." He said and pulled me into him and kissed my hurriedly, no movement, just a pure kiss. I pulled away and smiled at him. "Thank's." He whispered and sat down.
I laughed then went and sat in my own seat.
Throughout the rest of the ceremony, me and Niall would occasionally look at each other and smile or laugh to ourselves. He was already drunk and I'm not a big drinker so I only had a few. "Toilet break!" Harry shouted and ran off to the toilet. About 5 minutes later the boys were called up again. I walked round and hugged Niall before they all went on stage without Harry, but in the middle of the speech he came running down and onto the stage. Everyone laughed but something is telling me he wasn't only at the toilet.
I excused myself from the table and walked to the entrance of the building, and it being summer time, it was still light outside. I walked out and looked around the street outside, there were loads of people still around the red carpet so I ran down and off it so I was now on the main street.
I looked around but nothing, I turned around and began to walk back but was cut off my a girl calling my name. I turned around and just the person I wished to never see again.
