When I got back home, with a tanned skin, happier mood, and with a goal, everything changed quickly. Niall and the boys were on the newspapers everywhere and I couldn't even buy bread without seeing him. Slowly came the feelings of hopelessness back and I realized that I missed him. Yet, I didn't seek contact with Niall and I didn't want to have back that old relationship.
"Forget him!" Emma always said to me, but it was difficult. Their new album was coming out and the tour was in full swing. I even saw Niall on the TV and in various interviews.
"It's not easy to forget his face." I said to Emma, but she was determined, to get me to obey her advice.
It took only a few weeks and then I went with Emma to the disco. I don't know what I had hoped for, but I went there just to show myself that I could and dared to look at other people. Pretty soon there appeared a man by my side, and he refused to leave me.
"Are you a stalker?" I asked with my cold voice. That was how I had dealt with other guys and it was a habit.
"Yes?" he said with a big smile. "I believe that your worth the risk."
I don't know if I rolled my eyes, but I gave him no sign of loving it.
"And you think that girls like guys who persecute them?"
"No, but like I said, sometimes you have to dare to take a chance."
I spun around and I looked at him. He had brown hair, he had a really nice body and his smile was dazzling. He was such a guy who could really make a girl blush. His gray eyes looked straight at me and it was a strange feeling in my body.
"Who are you?"
He leaned slightly toward me and he continued to smile.
"Jamie Dakota!" he whispered lightly. "I'm the guy who doesn't give up."
"Okay Jamie," I said cool. "I'm such a girl who doesn't fall for guys who try to charm and I'm definitely not a girl who falls for such guys as you are."
He didn't care. He didn't released me neither with his eyes or with his attention.
"And I'm such a guy who doesn't usually flirt with girls."
He sounded sincere. I still didn't know how to handle him.
"I have just come from a long relationship." I whispered. "I'm not ready."
"We can be friends?"
"That's what Niall said when I met him."
I had already told him the name. It was too late to repent. I was still confident that Jamie didn't know who I was talking about.
"Yes he's the person I have spent four years to!" I said and I indicated that I didn't feel comfortable by the subject.
"He certainly wasn't your kind of guy?" muttering Jamie quickly. "I can promise you that I'm more such a guy you want."
"You don't know Niall?"
"No, but I want to know you."
I had no feelings for Jamie, but Emma made sure he got my phone number, and against my will, I had to see him again. Still, I wanted to give him a chance. I had only been in love with one guy in my life and I did want to realize that Niall wasn't my whole world.
"So tell me about that Niall?"
Jamie and I sat in the park. We sat on a bench and watched the playground, where children played and parents talking to each other.
"He was wonderful." I said the words even though I knew that Jamie didn't want to know that part. "Niall was my first boyfriend and he made me feel good."
He looked at me.
"So why did you guys break up?"
I sighed. How could I explain everything? I didn't want to talk about that Niall was in a boy band and he had fans.
"He was a little shy to show the relationship open."
Jamie understood immediately.
"So he wasn't the guy who wanted to show you up for his friends and so on?"
I shook my head. It was the truth and that was why I hadn't dried to be with him.
"So I broke up." I whispered quickly. "I said what I felt and then I haven't talked to him. Over six months ago."
"It's over six months ago?" he laughed mockingly. "Talk about that you have to learn to move on?"
"But it's hard. I see him everywhere."
Jamie didn't understand that I meant that literally.
"You must forget him. Perhaps he's already found a new girlfriend?"
I knew Niall was still single. I looked at Jamie and I realized that he still had right. It had been so long that I should leave Niall alone. I shouldn't think about him and what did I still got to hope for? Niall wouldn't come back.
"You're right." I said and I tried to smile. "I should forget him."
Jamie seemed pleased. He watched me a few extra seconds.
"You know what?"
He was in great spirits and I saw that he had something planned.
"This weekend you go with me to my parents' cottage. We'll talk, listen to music, walk along the beach and I'll cook for you."
My first thought was to say no, but at the same time, I had to dare.
I heard how bad it sounded, and I heard that I didn't sound convincing. Jamie didn't care. He had already planned everything.
"I'll pick you up on Friday and we get home on Sunday."
Okay, I nodded. I said yes and I agreed to spend the weekend with Jamie, against my will, or if it was against my sanity?
Emma cheered and I saw at her that she was more in love with the idea than I was.
"But he's just a friend?"
She didn't agree.
"Haven't you seen how Jamie looks at you? He's in love and he's such a guy that all the girls want?"
I agreed, but I wanted Niall. Still, I tried not to think about the Irishman.
"Yes, he's perfect."
Emma pulled out my suitcase and she threw it on the bed.
"We should pack clothing that seduces." she said firmly. "And you have to buy new underwear."
I blushed. Then I froze. I hadn't thought about sex. Talk about that I was nervous. I had only been with Niall and I had dreamed that it would only be with him. I sat down and Emma saw how I reacted. She laughed and she seemed amused.
"Come on!" she said happily. "You have to give him something and I promise it gonna be fine."
Will be more... ♥
