17. Gossip and truth
Eleanor just stared at my ring. Niall had invited all the friends just to tell them about the news, but Eleanor was the one who was jealous.
"Louis!" she said with a cold voice. "When we get home we'll talk."
I laughed. I couldn't manage to care about other people's problems and nobody could ruin my happy mood. Harry hugged me and he showed that he was happy for me.
"Congratulations." he whispered. "Niall finally understood what was best for him?"
"I don't know if I'm the best for him, but I said yes?"
Harry released me and it was as if he understood me.
"Much will change in your life, but I promise that you've got the best guy there is."
Niall came up to us and he had heard Harry's words. He blushed and took his arms around my body.
"I think it's the other way around. It's me who gets the best girl in the world."
Harry just laughed. Sophia came up to me and she looked at the ring. I noted that she felt it was a cheap version, but even that didn't affected me. It was my life and my boyfriend. She could do whatever she wanted with Liam.
"Good!" she said cold and she smiled at Niall. "But you should have bought a ring with a diamond?"
Niall just laughed and he then looked at me.
"Are you satisfied with the ring?"
I nodded and kissed him.
"I need no diamond. I got you and you are my diamond."
Niall blushed again and he kissed me. It was the truth. We didn't need expensive things around us, we only had each other. Maybe that Niall was the only guy who was down to earth and not wanting to brag?
Liam put on the TV and quickly we saw a picture of Niall. The reporter smiled and she seemed to us.
"And now we have heard that Niall Horan, from One Direction, not only have had a girlfriend, he's also engaged to be married."
I was startled. I just stared at the TV. Who had told the truth to the news? Niall stood behind me and he hugged me tight.
"Come on, sweetheart." he whispered in my ear. "That's just the truth?"
"But who's gossips all the time?"
I saw that everyone looked at us, but I couldn't bother me. I went through all that worked for One Direction, in my head. Who was it who knew about what happened and who gossiped?
"A secret." Niall whispered to me and then he looked at his friends. "It's just as well that we telling her the truth?"
I was startled and I looked at everyone in the room. What was it that I wasn't aware about? Zayn smiled big and he sat down.
"Jenny, are you really eager to know the truth?"
I nodded quickly.
"Yes, because there's someone who spreads rumors?"
He laughed and he looked at me. Niall still stood behind me and he hugged me tightly.
"It's we who gossips." said the guys in the choir. I gasped.
"Yes, some things were talking in the back door, to avoid having to tell it all ourselves."
I just stared at him,
"How do you mean?"
Niall sat down and he forced me down on his lap.
"Darling, it's sometimes one of us who speaks the truth to the news, but they don't know that it's us."
I understood nothing. Niall laughed a little bit and he blushed.
"I phoned the news in the morning, when you were asleep."
He kissed me.
"That way you or I need to take the responsibility to say anything. Now we just need to show the ring and the fans will understand me."
I just stared at him.
"So who told them that we were together?"
Zayn raised his hand and he laughed uncertainly.
"It was me."
I just stared at him. Zayn cleared his throat a little bit, and I saw at him that he didn't like that I now found out the truth.
"Niall told me to do it."
I realized how it worked. I realized that everyone in the band talk about the important things to the fans, but in a secret.
"Okay?" I mumbled and then I looked at Niall again. "So you knew about who would tell them everything?"
"We have always done like this, in order to have control over our lives." he said kindly. "I didn't dare to tell you, but now you know the truth. Are you mad?"
I shook my head quickly.
"I'm just surprised."
Niall smiled and he kissed me lightly.
"I understand you, but admit that this was a good way to solve the problem?"
I smiled and I nodded.
Louis came into the room and he had wine with him.
"And now let's celebrate!"
I nodded a little uncertainly. Celebrate? Did they wanted to celebrate over that the truth had come out or they wanted to celebrate that we were engaged?
I woke up early on Sunday. I had a headache and we had partied well all the night. I lay next to Niall and he lay on his back and slept. The quilt was hiding just his hip and down. I couldn't help but consider his gorgeous body. This was my future husband, he was mine, totally mine.
I was startled and I looked at Niall. He had woken up and he had seen how I had been staring at him. I blushed and I couldn't help but smile.
"I see only what belongs to me."
He smiled and he pulled me into his arms.
"Don't let it become a habit."
I laughed and I put my head against his chest.
"I love you."
Niall yawned and he took his arms tightly around me.
"I know darling, I love you."
It was wonderful to just be close to him. Somehow, it was as if everything else was just a dream and my true life was just Niall.
"So what should we do today?" I asked. Niall smiled and he let go of me. He sat up and he looked at me with an amused look.
"What do you want to do?" he asked. "We can do whatever we want."
