9. Home At Last
I realized that when I looked at Noah, home was right here in Mullingar. So yes, we moved again. I buckled him into his car seat and I drove to the house with Anna looking tired in the front seat. But when we got home, fans, photographers, and news stations were there. " I got out of the car and told Anna to lock the car doors. I walked onto the sidewalk and onto my stairs and everyone got quiet. "Listen, it's been a busy past 2 days and my family would like to rest in peace. I am about to go back and finish up 3 months of tour in 3 days and I need some rest. Thank you everyone, I will update you on social media." I said and I went back and helped Anna out of the car and got Noah.
People stayed just to take pictures of us and all. "His name is Noah James Horan." I said and fans squealed and Noah started to cry with all of the noise around. I took him out of the car seat and handed it to Anna while I carried my little boy in my arms. Finally I got inside, safe and sound with Anna and Noah. No one was hurt, thank god. I looked out my window and some started to leave. "You okay?" I asked her as she held her tummy. "Not really." She said I helped her sit on the couch. "Hold Noah while I fix his little chair.
It was blue with a H. on it that would rock him back and forth a little, to help him sleep. "It's so cute. I love your mum." Anna said and I smiled. "Yeah. I love her too." The thought of her made me miss our old times. I was 18 when I moved in with Elizabeth, dad, and Anna. Then I havent been around mum and Chris a lot at all for the past 2 years. I feel bad considering she helped me get where I am today. I looked at Anna, who held Noah in her arms until she carefully put him in the little chair.
Interveiwers were still outside our door, so I went out to satisfy them. "Niall! Can we ask you a few questions?" A reporter asked. "Sure I guess." I said and a woman started. "What's it like to be a new father?" I cleared my throat and a grin wiped on my face. "Well, it's going to be interesting for the first few months. But I am really happy and it's a great feeling." I said and a man asked me a question. "Niall, you have a baby boy, correct?" I nodded. "Yes. His names is Noah James Horan." I said. "How and who came up with that name?" Another asked. "I came up with the name because I thought I should keep NJH in the family and I had been thinking about that name for a while. Anna and everyone else seems to love it. Especially the fans." I said.
I stayed outside for about and hour in the June air, answering questions. "I can only answer so many questions right now. I need to get some rest before going back to tour and I need to spend time with my new family." I said going back inside. Noah and Anna were asleep, so I went to sit on the couch. She rested her head on my shoulder and looked up at me. "I dont care what they say, I'm in love with you." Anna said and I smiled. I was home at last.
