"Now spill the whole story," Louis said.
We were sitting in the living room, by the fire built by Louis, and drinking hot cocoa made by me.
"What do you want to know? I just left after they told me Kathy only has a 90% chance to die and came here. I just couldn't get over the fact....I don't know....something just took over me....and yeah," Niall said.
"But four hours after you left, they rolled Kathy out, who was wide awake," Louis said.
"Really?," Niall asked.
"Mhmm," I said.
"I called you like five million times! And even texted you," Louis exclaimed.
"I didn't read your messages," Niall mumbled.
"But you sent me five scary ones," I said.
Niall looked at me worried.
"I'm sorry," he said.
I sighed and cuddled closer to him as thunder rumbled again.
"So what did you do all this time?," Louis asked.
"Well....first I went to the house in the woods....took all the stuff out and burnt it down, then I went to my old house left after my parents and spent a week there....and then came here," Niall said.
"You burnt that house?," I asked.
"High five for that!," Louis grinned and high five'd Niall.
I sat thinking.
"Love?," Niall asked.
"What about Harry?," I asked.
"He deserves to be where he is!," he said.
"I promised him to get him out of jail," Niall mumbled.
"You WHAT?," me and Louis said at the same time.
"He doesn't.....I feel bad for him....he's so lost in life....and now he's going to spend the rest of his days cooped up in a cell?," Niall said.
"He fucking DESERVES it!," Louis said.
Niall just shook his head.
"Maybe you'll change your mind after three or four years," Niall told him.
"Never," Louis said.
Another sharp strike of lightening and the power went out.
"Great! Now this!," Louis said.
Niall sighed and held me closer.
"I guess we can just go to bed?," I said.
"Yeah goodnight you two," Louis said and walked upstairs to the guest room.
"I'm so happy you're back," I sighed and got up.
"I'm so happy you're okay," Niall said and got up too picking me up bridle style.
I hid my face in his neck and inhaled his scent, as he went up the stairs. He placed me on the bed and sat down beside me.
"Ni?," I asked, taking his hand. He flinched a bit when I touched his arm.
I looked at it, but couldn't see anything in the dark. Like a prayer being answered the power returned and I looked at Niall's arm.
"Niall!," I gasped.
There were red marks all up his arm.
I looked him in the eyes, he was crying.
"I thought-t-t....I thought....I would lose you forever....and I just...."
I hugged him tightly and cried with him.
"Ni, I'm never EVER going to leave you...I love you so much...," I said once he pulled away.
He smiled through his tears and cupped my face with his hand.
"I love you more Kathy," he said and leaned in and kissed me.
I wrapped my arms around his neck, holding him as close as possible.
He pulled me into his lap and wrapped his arms around my waist. I wrapped mine around his neck.
"Guys I though....Oh My God...Sorry," Louis said walking into the room.
"What is it Lou?," Niall asked as he looked deeply into my eyes.
"I was just wondering how'd the power came back?," he asked.
"Louis no one knows how. Just like why did the power go off in the first place...That's one stupid question, sorry, but it is," Niall said looking at Louis.
"I just....I just...never mind....," he closed the door and left, but before he closed the door I noticed tears in his eyes.
"Niall....I'll be back in a minute," I said kissing his forehead and walking out. I went into the guest bedroom and saw Louis sitting on the edge of the bed, his back towards me.
I crawled on the bed and peeked over his shoulder. Before he closed it, I saw a picture of him and Eleanor on his phone.
"Lou?," I asked rubbing his shoulder.
"I miss her," he said and he let himself break down into tears.
I sat down by him and hugged him.
"I can talk with her...maybe win her back for you?," I asked.
"No....she's with another man," Louis said, wiping his tears.
"Oh...well then, you deserve better then her," I said.
"But Kathy...can't you see...this man......is.......Harry."
