We pulled up to a small driveway. Niall stopped the car just in front of the huge garage door and climbed out. Before I could even unbuckle my seatbelt, he sprinted to my door and opened it for me. I thanked him with a little smile and stepped out. He walked me to his front door and pulled his keys from his coat pocket. He looked so cute in his little black jacket. I followed him inside and I shut the door behind me. He slipped his shoes off and placed them neatly on the shoe rack. He pinned his coat up on the hook and turned to look at me.
"What?" he asked with a smile.
"You're so organised." I replied with a slight chuckle.
"What can I say? I'm a clean freak." he laughed.
I slipped my shoes off and followed him into the kitchen.
I was in awe of his beautiful home. You could clearly tell that he didn't live here on his own. "Here, Z, go and sit in the living room. Make yourself at home," His voice interrupted my thoughts.
I nodded and made my way to the living room. If I was amazed by the kitchen, then I was even more amazed by the living room. I could see a few photos of him and, I'm guessing, his boyfriend.
Niall walked in a few minutes later and joined me on the sofa. He was wearing these cute little fluffy socks with little bobbles on them. He switched on the TV and scanned through the channels. I stared into his eyes as he concentrated on the TV. A small smirk grew on his face and he turned his face to wink at me. I giggled like a little school girl and blushed as I covered my face with my hands.
"Sorry." I laughed.
"What for?" he asked, removing my hands from my face.
"Being such a... nervous wreck."
He laughed and playfully hit my arm. "Shut up haha." He looked back at the TV and skipped through the box sets. "Have you ever seen American Horror Story?" he asked.
"No. It sounds scary." I replied.
"It's amazing! There's popcorn in the cupboard." He nudged his head towards the hallway.
I laughed as I walked into the kitchen and prepared the snacks. I was enjoying this time with Niall and it's only just begun. The microwave sounded and I emptied the salty popcorn into the bowl. I poured two glasses of Coca Cola and carefully carried them into the living room to join Niall. He gave me a smile as he took his cup from me. I sat on next to him on the couch and he threw a blanket over the both of us. I couldn't help but think of how many times he's done this with his boyfriend. I made sure to keep my distance in case he walked in and caught us. Niall rested his legs over mine and placed the bowl of popcorn in between us. I rested my hands on his legs.
"Are you comfortable?" he asked smiling.
"Very." I smiled back.
He pressed play and we stayed like this for a while before Niall placed the bowl on the floor and moved to lay his head on my legs. My eyes widened as he made himself comfortable and carried on watching the show. I was a bit uncomfortable with how we were sitting, but I wouldn't dare ask him to move. Instead I folded my arms and went along with it.
A few episodes later, Niall had fallen asleep. He looked so peaceful lying there with his hands tucked into his chest. I moved the loose hairs from his forehead and his eyes twitched open.
"What time is it?" he asked rubbing his eyes.
"Almost 8pm." I replied.
He sat up and his hair was in an adorable mess. "You should probably go. Harry will be home like any minute."
I was surprised by his demand, but I guess he was right. Harry was after all his boyfriend.
"Thanks for this Niall. It was just what I needed." I told him, slipping my shoes on.
"I can get you a taxi?" he asked.
"It's fine, I'll walk. I don't live far from here anyways." He nodded.
"See you soon Zayn."
I smiled and he shut the door, leaving me thinking to myself. I think I'm falling for him.
