Like the waves of the sea (Sequel of my prince is in London English- Dutch book )

“You say it will be alright but look at us, tired of the things we used to want, we used to live for… “ I said, sighted, frustrated. He took me in his arms. "Shhh.... We have to fight, we have to live for them... " “You don’t know what I feel, I feel like an idiot who just gives up her ‘Belgian’ life for this paparazzi life and give it up for children when there is an end for them before yours” - Cover made by Megan_Aurea

46. A quick flashforward!

English - Engels: 
 

Niall and I became older and older and got more grandchildren, even great-grandchildren. Niall loved to play with them, then he had the feeling that he was young again. Sometimes we went on holiday alone, because most of the times the grandchildren and greatgrandchildren slept at our place or just came to play here. We didn't had a lot of time alone. But that doesn't mean that we don't love each other. There was still a flickering in our eyes. To be in love. 

Niall still works for the studios. He wrote songs for artists, especially new artists. Harry and Megan still visit us when they had the time. Their children were already adults and got also children. We heard sometimes a bit of news from Liam. He enjoyed his life in his hometown with his family and children... Louis was still the same, still crazy and of course with his children and grandchildren. Zayn was always silent, we didn't know anything of him anymore, alone from Perrie. Zayn locked the doors since the death of his son, a car accident. We had tried a lot to pull him out of that process but it didn't succeed.

My skin with wrinckles felt weird. But there was still a man who loves it, Niall. He got wrinckles too but I still saw him as the 21- years old Niall with or without wrinckles.‘Granny?’ I heard behind me. Jess was already 20 while Niall and I almost reached the age of 70. Life went too fast. Before you know it , you'll die. ‘yes?’ I answered. Her brown hair was the same like I had in the past. 

‘Can you tell me something more about how it all started with granddad? I need to do an interview with someone older than 60 for school.’ She went to college, studies journalism.  ‘Okay, let me make some tea and place some cookies and then we’ll talk properly.’ She smiled and helped me. ‘Where’s granddad?’ She asked. ‘I think he’s helping uncle Nathan a bit in his house. You know your granddad is a busy family man.’ I smiled.

We sat on the couch and started the interview. ‘How did you met Niall, your man?’ ‘Well honey. It started when I was 17 years old. I just graduated high school and I wanted to choose my own way. I always wanted to go to London. After whining and whining, I could go to London. There I met in the elevator of the hotel Louis. The next day I met the rest of the boys: Liam, Harry, Zayn and Niall. There was something already between me and Niall, some chemistry. In the beginning I thought it was just friendship.’

‘And how did you become a couple? Did he ask you?’ ‘That’s quite funny. Harry and Niall were in love with me and told me that on the same day, in Belgium when I just had visit my dad in hospital. I didn’t know what do to. They could go both on date with me, and the winner was Harry but actually it was Niall but I thought he deserve better girls than me.’ ‘Really? And how long was the relationship between you and Harry?’ She was really curious.

‘Just one or two days actually because I was devastated of pain. I escaped London and tried to catch up my life in Paris with a best friend of me.’ ‘And? It didn’t succeed at all?’ ‘No, not at all, the boys and girls followed me to a party with masks. Before I knew I danced and sang with the love of my life and said that I missed him.’

The interview was so interesting for Jess. ‘Is it okay to publish the interview?’ Jess asked. ' If it has too, you can.’ I winked. I heard the frontdoor. ‘I’m home.’ I heard Niall saying. He shuffled t ome and hugged me. I gave him a kiss and behind me I heard someone saying 'awh'. ‘Yeah your granny and granddad still love eachother like they did years ago.’ Niall said. He was right. ‘I’m going home, making my interview ready but can I have a picture of you granny and then one with you and granddad?’ She asked. We nodded.

she took some pictures and then she went home. I wrapped my arms around Niall who softly went trough my hair.  ‘I would like to spend my whole life still with you.’ I said and hid my face in his t shirt. ‘You will do that, I make that happen.’ And he looked at me. He placed a kiss into my hair. 

Niall had a lot of work to do for the kids. This was finally a moment alone with him. Sometimes I did shores like ironing, washing, cooking,... Most of the times I helped was for my grandchildren who were already adults. Because I hadn't nothing to do if I didn't do that. I wanted to do things because sitting there and waiting to be an old lady was nothing for me. 

I could still enjoy life with Niall and the rest of my family. Most of the times I go to the hairdresser with Nina or Lilly. Or going to the city for shopping time with my granddaughters. Niall called me crazy if I had a lot for me and for the others from the shopping. Every time I got something for him too. 

I looked at Niall. ‘I have to tell you something honey.’ He said and swallowed. I looked at him really scared. ‘I have registered us for a home for elderly. I think it was time to do that. We can still reject it if there’s place with us and accept when we think it’s time to go there but I want to be sure that we have some place together there.’ I looked to the ground. He took my chin in his hands. ‘Hey it doesn’t mean that we aren’t independent. It’s just in case of problems. ‘ He tried to calm me down.

‘What if we’re there and nobody will visit us of our family? I’ve heard that enough…’ A tear streamed down my cheek. ‘It won’t happen love, it won’t. And if that happens, we have each other.’ He laid his hands on my cheek and kissed me. ‘Don’t worry it’s not for now, it’s just for later.’ He assured me.

‘Let’s go to bed honey, you’re tired.’ He looked at me when we watched some TV at late night. I almost fell asleep.  ‘MMM… but I had an amazing view and an amazing place.’ I whined. ‘You will have that later too.’ He laughed. We went to bed. Still in each others arms.

Dutch - Nederlands : 

Niall en ik werden ouder en ouder en kregen meer kleinkinderen, zelfs achterkleinkinderen. Niall hield ervan om met ze te spelen, dan voelde hij zich nog eens jong. Af en toe gingen we op vakantie alleen, want vaak kwamen de kleinkinderen of achterkleinkinderen slapen of gewoon spelen. We hadden bijna geen tijd alleen meer. Maar dat betekende niet dat we niet van elkaar hielden. Er was nog steeds die flikkering in onze ogen. Verliefd zijn.

Niall werkte nog steeds met de studios. Hij schreef songs voor artiesten, vooral beginnelingen. Harry en Megan kwamen nog steeds naar ons als ze tijd hadden. Hun kinderen waren ook al groot en kregen ook kinderen. Liam hoorde we af en toe. Hij genoot van het leven in zijn geboortestad met zijn familie en kinderen,… Louis die was nog steeds hetzelfde, even gek, zeker met zijn kinderen of kleinkinderen. Zayn was altijd stil, we wisten bijna niets meer van hem, alleen van Perrie. Zayn sloot zich op in zijn kamer sinds de dood van zijn zoon, een autoongeluk. We hebben vaak geprobeerd hem uit het proces te trekken maar dat lukte niet.

Mijn gerimpelde huid voelde raar aan. Maar er was steeds een man die het nog steeds mooi vond, Niall. Hij kreeg ook rimpels maar ik zag hem nog altijd als die 21-jarige Niall, met of zonder rimpels. ‘Granny?’ hoorde ik achter me. Jess was al 20 terwijl ik en Niall bijna de zeventig naderden. Het leven ging te snel. Voor je het weet sterf je. ‘yes?’ antwoorde ik op haar. Haar bruine haar leek net hetzelfde als dat van mij vroeger.

‘Can you tell me something more about how it all started with granddad? I need to do an interview with someone older than 60 for school.’ Ze studeerde journalistiek. ‘Okay, let me make some tea and place some cookies and then we’ll talk properly.’ Ze glimlachte en hielp me. ‘Where’s granddad?’ vroeg ze. ‘I think he’s helping uncle Nathan a bit in his house. You know your granddad is a busy family man.’ Glimlachte ik.

We zaten op de bank en ze begon haar interview. ‘How did you met Niall, your man?’ ‘Well honey. It started when I was 17 years old. I just graduated high school and I wanted to choose my own way. I always wanted to go to London. After whining and whining, I could go to London. There I met in the elevator of the hotel Louis. The next day I met the rest of the boys: Liam, Harry, Zayn and Niall. There was something already between me and Niall, some chemistry. In the beginning I thought it was just friendship.’

‘And how did you become a couple? Did he ask you?’ ‘That’s quite funny. Harry and Niall were in love with me and told me that on the same day, in Belgium when I just had visit my dad in hospital. I didn’t know what do to. They could go both on date with me, and the winner was Harry but actually it was Niall but I thought he deserve better girls than me.’ ‘Really? And how long was the relationship between you and Harry?’ Ze was heel nieuwsgierig.

‘Just one or two days actually because I was devastated of pain. I escaped London and tried to catch up my life in Paris with a best friend of me.’ ‘And? It didn’t succeed at all?’ ‘No, not at all, the boys and girls followed me to a party with masks. Before I knew I danced and sang with the love of my life and said that I missed him.’

Het interview was zo interessant voor Jess. ‘Is it okay to publish the interview?’ vroeg Jess. ‘ If it has too, you can.’ Ik knipoogde. Ik hoorde de voordeur openen. ‘I’m home.’ Hoorde ik Niall zeggen. Hij slofte naar me en knuffelde me. Ik gaf hem een kus en achter me hoorde ik ‘awh’. ‘Yeah your granny and granddad still love eachother like they did years ago.’ Zei Niall. Hij had gelijk. ‘I’m going home, making my interview ready but can I have a picture of you granny and then one with you and granddad?’ vroeg ze. We knikten.

Ze maakte foto’s en dan vertrok ze naar huis. Ik sloeg mijn armen rond Niall die zachtjes over mijn haar wreef. ‘I would like to spend my whole life still with you.’ Zei ik en verstopte mijn gezicht in zijn t-shirt. ‘You will do that, I make that happen.’ En hij keek me aan. Hij plaatste een kus in mijn haar.

Niall had heel veel werk bij de kinderen. Dit was eindelijk nog eens een moment met hem alleen. Af en toe hielp ik iedereen ook met hun huishoudelijke taken zoals strijken, wassen, koken,… Meestal zijn het de volwassen kleinkinderen die ik help. Anders had ik soms niets te doen. Ik wou dingen doen en niet stil zitten en wachten tot ik oud was.

Ik kon nog steeds van het leven genieten met Niall en de rest van de familie. Vaak ging ik samen met Nina of Lilly naar de kapper. Of ging ik met hun en de kleindochters shoppen. Meestal verklaarde Niall me dan gek als ik nog steeds veel mee had voor mezelf en voor de andere. Elke keer nam ik ook wat voor hem mee.

Ik keek naar Niall. ‘I have to tell you something honey.’ Zei hij en slikte even. Ik keek hem bang aan. ‘I have registered us for a home for elderly. I think it was time to do that. We can still reject it if there’s place with us and accept when we think it’s time to go there but I want to be sure that we have some place together there.’ Ik keek naar de grond. Hij pakte mijn kin in zijn handen. ‘Hey it doesn’t mean that we aren’t independent. It’s just in case of problems. ‘ Hij probeerde me gerust te stellen.

‘What if we’re there and nobody will visit us of our family? I’ve heard that enough…’ Een traan gleed over mijn wang. ‘It won’t happen love, it won’t. And if that happens, we have each other.’ Hij legde zijn handen op mijn wang en kuste mij. ‘Don’t worry it’s not for now, it’s just for later.’ Stelde hij me gerust.

‘Let’s go to bed honey, you’re tired.’ Keek hij me aan toen we ‘s avonds tv keken en ik bijna in slaap viel. ‘MMM… but I had an amazing view and an amazing place.’ Zeurde ik. ‘You will have that later too.’ Lachte hij. We stonden op en gingen slapen. Nog steeds in elkaars armen.
