8. 2nd Mum
I got in the car with Maura and we drove to the mall. "So what would you like to buy Niall for Christmas. Whatever you get him, I am paying for it." Maura said and I looked at her. "Please, you dont have to do that." I told her and she laughed. "You do remember that Niall is my son, right?" She asked and I did my little Irish laugh. We walked around to so many different stores.
"Oh look it's the 1D perfume!" Maura pointed to the perfumes in the store. "You must be a very proud mom. I am a proud fan." I told her and she looked me in the eyes. "I hope you get to meet the other boys soon. You're a great girl, Layla." Tears filled my eyes and I smiled. "Thank you. I hope I get them soon too." I said. Once we bought all our Christmas gifts, we decided to get going.
"Do you want me to drop you off at your house or do you want to go to our house?" Maura asked me once we started to enter back into Mullingar. "You can drop me off at Nandos, I only live 5 minutes from there. After all those cookies at your at house, I could use the walk." I said and she smiled. "Alright, I guess this is your stop." She said after a while and parked the car out in front of Nandos like I asked.
"Thank you so much. I had a lot of fun today." I said getting out of the car. "Layla, if you ever need anything or anyone to talk to, I am always around." Maura said and I nodded and smiled. She drove away and I started walking to my mum's flat. I opened the door to the messy place and my mum passed out I guess after drinking so much. "Back to hell." I told myself as I sat the Christmas bags behind my clothes in the closet.
