Just me

When the music stops is the only one left behind. Niall Horan...


17. Paid too much

Louis sat to my left and I was nervous when Niall ended up on my right side. I heard Nialls date laughed and she was in great spirits. Niall was more miserable and he didn't seem amused at all. Louis didn't care about him. He took his arm around my shoulders and smiled at everyone. He was talking to Liam, Harry and Zayn. I noticed that Niall was more quiet. It was as if I affected him, but I knew it could be my imagination playing tricks on me.


The entertainment began on the stage and in the meantime we got into food. I tried to eat and I tried to smile. Yet I couldn't stop to look at Niall. He ate and tried to be nice, but he didn't care about his date. She tried to flirt with him and hang over him, but Niall seemed to resist. 
"So you're together?" said Louis, looking at them. I understood that he had noticed that I looked at Niall. The girl's face lit up. 
"Well for one week. I'm so glad I met Niall and he's so perfect." 
I chose to drink wine and I tried not to show my dislike of her. 
"About a week." Niall mumbled and didn't seem happy about the subject. Louis laughed and he gave everything so that I would understand that I had no chance at Niall. 
"You fit together!" 
"I know!" giggled the girl and gave Niall a kiss on the cheek. She left an imprint of lipstick and directly Niall dried it away.
"Where did you meet?" I heard Liam ask. He had heard what we were talking about and he saw the curious at Niall. 
"In the pub!" she replied quickly. "Niall stood at the bar and drank water. I went up to him and since then I haven't let him out of my sight."


"And now One Direction perform." 
I was startled, and saw the guys stand up. They went up on stage and began to play One Thing. I almost lose my breath and actually I smiled. It was like going back ten years in time, and even that the boys were older, they were as good as ever. I was quickly inside the music and I loved it. 
"They weren't even okay." muttering Nialls date. I saw at her that she didn't even bother about what Niall did. 
"One time they were the largest in the world!" I said directly to her. She sighed, and I saw that she was no longer happy, interested or even excited to be there. I was surprised and she smiled at my reaction. 
"The truth?" 
I nodded weakly. She smiled and laughed lightly. 
"Niall paid me to play his girlfriend. He said he wanted to make a girl jealous and that she'd come here tonight. I wonder who she is?"
I was about to stop breathing. Niall wanted to make me jealous? I almost fainted. I just stared at her. She didn't see that I froze. 
"I guess he threw his last money away, but I promised to stay as long as he needed me." 
I drank wine and looked toward the stage. Niall stood and romping around. He looked happy, but his eyes were often in my direction. I realized that he had succeeded. I had been jealous of her and I had been feeling small. Now I just know the true. Niall wanted me? He still wanted me.


"Were we good?" 
Louis kissed me on the cheek and sat down on the chair beside me. I nodded and smiled weakly at him. 
"You sounded like before." 
I noted that while Niall came back. He sat down and I could feel my whole body was affected. I didn't dared tell him about my feelings and I no longer knew how I would be against him. A reporter came to the table with a microphone and started interviewing the guys. 
"So how does it feel to be a part of this evening?" he asked, and pushed up the microphone in my face. I was startled, and smiled weakly. 
"It's wonderful and many old memories come up." 
I blushed, but Louis took my hand and he showed that it was okay. I saw at him that he loved me, but my feelings were quite different. I took my hand away, prompting Louis to become unsafe.


When everyone started to walk around the room and talk to each other, drew Louis with me to a corner. 
"What is it honey? You are numb?" 
I swallowed. 
"Louis, I know Niall still want me." 
He laughed uncertainly and looked into my eyes. 
"He has gone on with life. Can't you see it?" 
I smiled weakly. 
"His date told me that Niall has paid her to play his date tonight. Want to know why?" 
Louis was uncertain. 
I smiled big. 
"To make me jealous."
Louis became unsure and I saw at him that he didn't know what to say. I looked over at Niall and I couldn't help but smile. 
"Lou, he wants me and I love him." 
Louis became almost angry and took both hands against my shoulders. He looked straight into my eyes. 
"Darling, he was cheating and he might have had more girls this month?" 
I doubted that it was the true. 
"Then he will tell me about that." 
Louis kept me close to him. 
"YOU mustn't!" he whispered, and I saw that he was desperate. "You will be better off with me?"
"And how do you know that?" I quickly developed. "I don't love you and you know it." 
Louis sighing. 
I shook the head. 
"No Lou, I don't want to live with you just because you want me." 
He sighed. 
"Niall will make you miserable and the next time aren't I there to comfort you."


Niall was surprised when I showed up. I took his hand and pulled him towards the toilets. I found an empty corner and spun around to look at him. 
"So what did she cost you?" 
Niall became red in the face and he knew who I was talking about. 
I smiled. 
"Yes, you would make me jealous as you paid her so she would play girlfriend?" 
Niall blushed and he just stared at me. 
"How did you...?" 
I giggled and kissed him quickly. 
"So if we start over? Will you stay home or will you flirt?"
Niall just stared at me and it took a few seconds before he realized. 
"You give me a chance?" 
I nodded and smiled big. 
"Well, that's just silly of us to be unhappy all the time." 
He nodded and smiled. I felt his hands around my waist. 
"But Louis?" 
I swallowed. 
"Mistakes, just like all your mistakes, and we put it behind us?"
