Early on I awoke up when Niall moved at his arm, or something. I realized that he couldn't remain in my bed and directly I awoke him up, which maybe wasn't the easiest.
"Come on!" I hissed. "Tess always come in here and I don't want her seeing a naked man, the last day that I'm here."
Niall sighed and he ran his hand through his hair, he saw that the clock wasn't even six in the morning and he sighed.
"But she's asleep?"
"Children wake up early."
Niall chose to obey me, but first he gave me a tired hug and a kiss.
"Maggie, I will go to your apartment today, when you leave this house."
"Are you serious?"
He sat up and caught up his underwear from the floor.
"No, I'm lying!" he said with a twinkle in his eye. I smiled and I followed him with my eyes. I didn't admitted it for him, but I was sure that I loved him. Niall put on his pants, but kept the shirt in his hand. He leaned over the bed and he gave me one more kiss.
"Promise to be a good girl."
"Why wouldn't I be good?"
He laughed and walked towards the door. Before he opened it, he smiled big at me.
"I think deep down there is a little witch who just waiting to come out."
I knew he was joking, but still, I was surprised by his comment.
Niall only grinning.
"You will change, or not, depending on yourself."
"Tell it like it is instead of a bunch of riddles."
He grinned and opened the door.
"See you later, sweetheart!"
He left me alone and I felt small. What had I gotten myself into?
I took a shower and I put on my clothes. I was ready when I heard that Tess came to my room. When she showed up she didn't look happy and I knew why.
"Must you go?"
I sat down in front of her and I nodded. I took her face in my hands and I saw the tears came.
"I promise to come and visit." I said. I smiled weakly. "Or you can come to me?"
She nodded and took her arms around my neck. She hugged me hard and I felt like a shitty and lousy human being.
"It will be fine, you'll see!" I whispered and ran my hand through her hair. She released me and she nodded. She always relied on what I said and she always listened to me.
"Do you promise?"
"You will get a new nanny and she will be much more fun than I am." I lied because I had no idea who was going to replace my place.
I nodded and I smiled.
"And in a month you have probably forgotten all about me?"
She shook her head quickly. She wiped her tears and I saw that she had to fight. I knew she would have a tough time before she forgot about me. In a week, or maybe about a month and then her life would continue, as if I hadn't been there.
I got to travel away in a big car to my apartment. Mr. Stanford had arranged with furniture and he said I didn't have to buy anything other than clothes. I suspected, however, that I had to take away on a lot of hos stuff, for making me feel at home. I had a completely different style from the rich and I wasn't exactly keen on art. Stanford had pictures everywhere and vases that were expensive, all just to show that they had money. I was their opposite person. I hate to brag, and for me was Tess artwork worth more than an expensive painting.
I was surprised when Niall was standing outside the house where my apartment was. He stood and smiled with his whole face and I had to pinch my arm. I hadn't had time to brood over his and my relationship, not when I had to say goodbye to everyone and not when Tess had stood weeping outside the house. Tess was the last person I had seen, when the car drove away and she looked devastated. I knew I had to move on. She would certainly find her place in life and I had to solve my own problems.
"Welcome, my darling!" Niall said as soon as the car door opened. I snorted and I wondered if he was exaggerating. He was quick and caught up my hand, then he gave me a bunch of keys. I was startled but he just smiled.
"A key to the apartment, one to supply, a key to the basement and a key to the front door."
He pulled me into the house and up to an elevator. I realized that it wasn't a normal apartment, it was an expensive apartment. I hesitated to ask him why they had chosen that house, and in the end I had to ask.
"Why not an ordinary house?"
Niall smiled and he pulled me into the elevator.
"Only the best is good enough for my girlfriend."
I just hesitated and I just looked at him.
He nodded with satisfaction.
"You're my girlfriend and you have nothing to say in the matter."
"But we shouldn't..."
He put his hand over my mouth.
"You know I want you, and yesterday you showed you that you want me. You should just be quiet and you'll realize that this is really happening."
I realized that I needed time to think through things, but I didn't dare tell Niall that. Much changed at once, and he took it for granted that I wanted to be his girlfriend. Okay, I had feelings for him, but my conscience told me that we didn't fit together. We had passion between us, but what else?
The apartment exceeded it all. I had a big bedrooms, a large family room with a desk with a new computer, I had a kitchen with everything and I had a room with a big TV set. I had a guest bathroom with shower, and I had a private toilet with hot tub and shower. I just stared at everything and I realized that this really happened.
"You like it?"
I looked at Niall that he felt that he had gotten it all. I hesitated.
"It had been enough with a regular apartment?"
He laughed and came towards me.
"This is actually a standard apartment." he said happily. "If I had bought a home so it would have been better than this."
I frowned seriously and he took me in his arms. He hugged me and he smiled big.
"I'm kidding!" he said then. "I chose the apartment after what I wanted."
I realized that he was proud and I didn't want to hurt him.
"Okay, so this is my home?"
Niall nodded and he smiled at me.
"You can change how much you want. I know you want to have other furniture, we take that part when you get used to live here and know what you want?"
"I wasn't going to let you go. You are mine and I am yours!"
I hesitated even more, just because he was so sure of his cause.
"And do your parents know that you are with a nanny?"
"Not yet, but I'll tell them everything."
I thought it was a lousy idea.
"And they'll be happy?"
He kissed me.
"Stop brooding sweetheart. I love you and that's all that matters."
I balked. He loved me?
"Yes, I want to be with you and I want to give you opportunities."
I chose not to ask for more. I chose to swallow my pride. In a few weeks started school and then I would finally get an education. Niall could stay if he wanted to, but I'd actually have preferred that he didn't go as fast forward.
