Chapter 12

Niall's P.O.V.

We all finished watching the football game, well actually Zayn and Lou went to bed because they where tired but I'm pretty sure Nicole kept them up for screaming at the tv with Harry.

She REALLY likes football I guess. I love it. This is so cool.

By the end of the game our team won so Nicole and Harry where screaming about that. Liam tried to make them be quiet but that didn't really work. I started screaming along with them cause, hey, if you can't beat them join them or whatever I don't know how you say that.

At the of the screaming party Harry was exhausted and Nicole looked like she would drop at any minute. Liam was trying to wipe the tiredness away rom his eyes.

Harry went to his room with a goodnight hug to everyone. When he hugged Nicole he smiled at first but then he saw me glaring at him and he let her go.

I set up my bed on the couch and Liam went to his room as well.

"I'm gonna go to bed Niall, goodnight." Nicole said coming over to me.

"G'night Nicole." I wrapped her in a hug and picked her up which made her squeal. I laughed at the little noise she made and put her down.

She rolled her eyes and smiled. Then she was off down the hall and turned right into my room.

It didn't take me that long to fall asleep. But a few things had kept me up. Nicole, our date, her smile, her voice, pretty much everything about Nicole kept me up.


Nicole's P.O.V.

I woke up to the sun blinding me through the small opening in the middle of the window that the curtains had made. I blinked my eyes a couple times and then I gazed up at the ceiling.

The only thing that came to my mind right away was Niall. Oh my god our date! I seriously can't wait for it.

Then another thing hit me. The files. I looked to my right and there they were. The answers for my questions that I've had over the years about her. Dad never told me anything.

I sat up slowly and grabbed the files. The note was still stuck to it. I carefully opened it, trying not to spill any of the papers out.

Inside was a piece of paper that had an address on it to some office building down town. That's not that far.

I looked at the next paper and saw another note. This one less buzzed.


These papers will tell you how to find your mom. We have still kept in contact over the years. Just go to the address I gave you and the people there will help you. I'm sorry I was a horrible father. I hope you have a better life with your mother and brother.

He was sorry. My deadbeat father was sorry. Wow. Never heard that before.

I was a torn away from my thoughts by a knock on the door, "Nicole? Are you awake?" It was Liam.

"Yeah I'm awake you can come in."

Liam opened the door and sat on the bed with me.

"The files?" He asked gesturing to the papers in my hand.

"Yeah, my dad left me an address and another notes also some other papers about how I get some of his belongings. But you know, he burned everything."

"You father wasn't that bright, was he?"

"W'll he used to be a lawyer but the he was fired and he got into all the crap. That stuff ruined him."

Liam nodded as he read the note my dad left me.

"We should go there now." Liam said pulling his eyes away from the paper and meeting mine.

"Okay, but I should get dressed so they, uh, take me seriously." I said getting up and walking to the drawers.

Liam put the papers on the bedside table, got up, and said, "yeah okay I'll go get dressed and tell the guys what's going on."

"Got it, see you out there in a bit."

With that Liam left to go get dressed. I looked at what I had to wear. Okay, I'll wear a pair of jeans with my black vans and the shirt? Uh, I'll wear a plain white T-shirt and I threw on a black scarf that Lou had said I just had to have. He's crazy.

I looked at my hair in the mirror and decided to keep it down. I just ran a brush through it and walked out to the main room.

Niall was there watching tv and when he saw me he smiled.

"Hey Nic, you ready to find your mom?" Harry said from the kitchen.

"Are you kidding? I've been ready since I found out my mom just left."

I was really excited. What was she gonna be like? Did she look like me? What did I get from her in my genes? Why did she leave me? The last question I really wanted to know.

Liam came out from his room with car keys and yelled at Zayn to finish up with his hair.

"You got the files Nic?" Liam asked as he hit Lou for taking Harry's food.

"Oh yeah there in my room I'll be right back."

When I came back out all the boys here ready to go. I felt bad because they would probably want to be sleeping right now or eating breakfast still. But they said they wanted to help and I said I would let them.

On our ride down the elevator Niall kept looking at me. I smiled and blushed every time I caught him. Which was every time.

"Take a picture it will last longer Horan." Zayn said hitting him upside the head.

Niall blushed as the boys laughed. I wanted to laugh too but I didn't want to embarrass Niall so I just bit the inside of my bottom lip on the left side. I've always done it. I really should try to break this habit.

When we reached the lobby Liam leaded us to the car that we had parked in the back from yesterday. This time I to to sit up front because Liam wanted to keep the files okay.

That meant Louis had to sit on Niall's lap. It was actually kind of funny.

Niall kept grunting at the weight of Lou.

"Get this kid off of me!"

"Oh shut it," Louis said, "you're just mad cause in not Nicole."

Oh. I blushed and turned back around in my seat to face the road.

Louis yelped, "Oi! Stop hitting me!"

Niall was smiling triumphantly as he flicked Lou on the head one more time.

"Okay Horan, that hurt." Louis stated looking at the back of the head of the driver's seat.

"Oh my god Lou, grow up please and Niall, just stop hurting him. Now Nicole, what's the address" Liam said like he was their father.

I told him the address and one more outburst from Louis later we where there.

I got out of the car and looked at the average office building.

"C'mon Nicole," Niall said smiling as he stood next to me, "let's go find that family of yours."

I smiled and followed Niall inside.

A lady greeted us at the front office. "Hello how may I help you?"

"She needs to find her mom." Liam said stepping up to the desk.

"Okay does she have any names or anything?"

Liam looked at me and I walked up next to him and handed the lady the files.

"Oh, your father came here the other day....." Her voice faltered at the end.

Confused, I looked at Liam and he had the same face.

"You, only you Nicole, please come to the back office with me." The lady said getting up from her desk and walking towards to back.

I followed her and walked into a small office that had a desk and computer with two chairs.

"Please sit down." The lady said clicking something on the computer.

I sat down in the uncomfortable chair as the lady turned to me.

"My name is Jennifer Matins. You can call me Ms.Matins."

"Okay Ms.Matins, can you please tell me why my father came here? And what he said?" I really wanted to know.

"Well, his note says that he has been talking to your mother over the years. Which he has. So, that's good. I mean, she's alive so that's nice. She lives in London actually. And you're brother," she was reading this off of the computer when her eyes widened in shock at what she was a ABOUT to tell me about my brother. "Y-you're brother is Liam Payne."
