Loosing You || n.h.

"Where are you?" I spoke into the phone. My heart dropped when she hesitated.

"I'm out Niall." She covered the speaker so I wouldn't hear her hush the people in the background.

But I did.

"Come home?" My eyes started to water. I wasn't stupid. I shouldn't be a baby though.

"Niall." She sighed.

"I don't want to be alone. I don't want you to leave me. After all we've been through?" I tried not to let her hear the sadness, the panic, in my voice.

"You know things aren't the same anymore."

2. Chapter 1

Niall slid into his seat, pushing his hair back.

Ashton, Niall called him Ash, started to shake his head. A smirk formed on his face. "Dude. Chill. She's just a girl."

Niall turned his head. If looks could kill. "That's easy for you to say Ash. You could get any girl you want in this room right now. Things are different for me..." Niall looked down, his leg started to bounce. He was starting to work himself up. "I really like this one."

"Why don't you let me go put in a good word for you?" Ashton raised one eyebrow. Niall glared at him again.

"Yeah... Right." Niall rolled his eyes. He moved his hands into his lap, they were becoming sweaty and he didn't want Ashton to see. "I wouldn't trust you to -"

Ashton stood, patted Niall on the back. "Five minutes buddy. She'll be all over you, like stink on shit." There was no stopping him now. Niall put his head down on his arms and hoped for the best.

A little less then five minutes later Niall felt a tap on his shoulder. He looked up to see Ashton, a smile on his face.

"You better have your shit together stink." Niall tried not to smile at Ashton's comment. "The girl wants to talk." Ashton nodded in the direction she was sitting.

"You're messing with me." Niall looked over at her as he talked. His heart started to race again. This was actually happening. He was going to talk to her.

"Not this time." Ashton shook his head. "But you better get over there before she changes her mind."

Niall jumped up. He took off, almost in a marathon type of way. When he got closer he slowed down. I can't do this, he thought to himself. I'm going to mess it all up. It's better to just watch her from afar, daydream...

He was too close to turn back though, she noticed him. Her smile sent chills through him. She moved so gracefully, like every little inch was carefully thought out before it was allowed to be made.

Would 'hey' even be the right thing to say to someone who radiates beauty? He thought to himself again. He was almost to her; so, he didn't have much time to think of something to say. Just let her talk Niall. Don't say anything.

As he stepped up to the table she smiled again. His heart dropped into stomach.

"Afternoon Mr. Horan." She stuck her hand out. He gladly took it.

"Please call m-m-me Niall." Niall mentally slapped himself. Not now you stupid stutter. Not now.

"Okay Niall. If you'll give me one moment I have to finish this practice-"

"Is that for Mrs. Allen's class?" Niall noticed the blue rim. Blue was her favorite color... It had to be.

"How'd you know?" She set her pen down, looking at Niall in shock.

"Lucky guess. You don't have to worry about her test though." Niall looked down as he noticed they were making eye contact. "She'll always let you use your notes."

She closed her notebook, smiling up at Niall again. "Thanks for the tip." It was silent for a moment, but it wasn't awkward.

Niall looked at her... More like stared. She was thinking. He could tell by the way her forehead was creased, and the way she was biting her lip.

"How old are you?" She didn't look up, still concentrating.

"Nineteen." Niall's heart skipped a beat. He realized why she asked. What if they couldn't see each other?

"Niall, I like you..." She was looking at him again, a sad smile on her face.

He didn't hear much of what she was saying; instead, he focused on her first words. They echoed through his whole head. I like you. Did she mean that?

"... right now, I have to go." She stood, grabbing her things. "It was nice talking to you Niall." He didn't know what to say.

Tell her to stay. Ask her out. Do something, stupid.

"Wait Skylar." Niall called out. He noticed a smile as she was turning, but she let it disappear. "You'll still be at Barney's on Thursday?"

"Like always." She nodded and turned once again.

Niall watched her until she disappeared. He felt like someone was watching him.

"Barney's? Why didn't you ask her on a real date?" Ashton. Of course.

"This Thursday is her birthday. I know exactly what I'm going to do." Niall began walking toward the nearest exit.

Ashton quickly caught up, winking at a table of girls on the way. "I think that's the one I dated last summer... She looks way hotter this year. You think she's still into me?"

Niall rolled his eyes. Ashton was going to ruin his life if Niall didn't do something about it. "Let's go Ash." He pulled his friend by the back of his shirt. "You can worry about girls later. We have more important things to do right now."
