The look on my son's face as he steps out on the stage with the boys. My eyes go wide as he smiles and waves, no stage fright at all, he defiantly hasn't taken after me in that part. I was scared shitless to go on stage.
"This is my son, Alec." Niall told everyone.
"And tonight, he's our special guest." Zayn said and knelt down by Alec, fluffing his hair. "How old are you?" Zayn asked.
"12, you were just at my birthday party." Alec said and Zayn laughed, causing the crowd to laugh along. I walked or front with Lux,Lou and Ciara. We stood in front of the stage. I watched my baby boy clear his throat and look at me and then his dad for reassurance.
"You got this baby." I told him and he smiled. Niall stepped back, as did the other boys and Alec closed his eyes before strumming the strings on the guitar. Tears were brought to my eyes as I started to sing along.
He's playing the guitar for Little Things just like his daddy does. My hand goes over my mouth as I listen to them all sing their parts and finally, for what's suppose to be Niall's part, it's Alec's turn. He looks up past the crowd and Niall stands behind him, his hands over his shoulders as they both look in the same direction.
They looked so much a like in this moment it was fucking nuts. Alec had his brown hair pushed up just like Niall's, his little Superas were the same as Niall's and his jeans were tucked in like Niall always had his. "You'll never love yourself half as much as I love you. And you'll never treat yourself right darlin' but I want you to. If I let you know I'm here, for you. Maybe you'll love yourself like I love you oh."
I started screaming. I screamed so loud that I started choking. "That's my baby!" I screeched and danced around. I was lifted up on stage and I hugged him so tightly I thought I was going to break him. "I am so proud of you!" I said, forgetting that his mic is still on.
Ciara runs on the stage also and jumps into her daddy's arms and I pick Alec up, Niall walking over to us and holding on to us. I wave my hands over to the other boys and they smile, walking over to us and joining the hug. "Family forever." Liam says and people start crying.
"No!" Ciara screamed in my face, "I'm not going home! I'm going to live on the road with daddy and there's nothing you can do about it!" She violently crying, her face going purple and eyes bloodshot red.
"Ciara..." I sighed, completely exhausted with this. "We need to go home and daddy's going to finish the tour and then he's going to come home, okay?" I tried but she screamed, rolling on her stomach and throwing a fit like Caillou. Nothing that anyone could say to her would make her come home, I'm going to have to clip her claws and drag her.
"Mommy please!" Her hands grabbed my shoulders as I got on my knees to pick her up, shaking me and yelling "mommy" over and over again. Alec was by the door just watching his little sister act like she was being tortured. "Please please please! I don't want to leave daddy! Right Alec?!" She looked at Alec for help but he shook his head.
"Don't get me involved." He warned her and she screamed even louder. There was a knock on the door and Alec opened it, it was Harry. "Please help my mother." I heard Alec mumble to Harry, Harry laughed and walked over.
"I heard screaming and I just wanted to make sure no one was being slaughtered."
"Harry!" I shouted and slapped his chest with the back of my hand.
"Uncle harry, please! You've gatta tell my mom that I'm staying, please!" She begged. I rolled my eyes, "she's going to beat me whenever we get home!"
"Ciara!" I shouted, she backed away from me because she knew she did wrong.
"Come here." Harry said and opened his arms to her, she walked over to him and Harry sat down on the floor and pulled her into his lap. "I want you to stay, your dad defiantly wants you to stay, we all want you to stay, Ciara. But the fact of the matter is, you can't. Being on tour isn't as fun as it sounds, ask your mother, she got sick a lot of your because you don't sleep properly nor do you eat well. It's not something kids should be doing, do you understand?" He asked her.
"Yes, but I miss my dadd-"
"I know you'll miss your dad but he'll be skyping you and calling you, making sure your mother isn't beating you." He giggled.
"Harry!" I said again and slapped his arm.
"See what I mean?" He winked at her and she started laughing. I scuffed and he went on. "There's only five more months left on the tour, you'll go home, go to school, and by the time we're done touring.. You'll be going to grade 8, that will be something to celebrate right? We'll all come over and have a big barbecue and you Alec will get presents for doing such a good job in grade 7!"
"Really?" She asked, eyes wide.
"Really really." He stood up with her in his arms. "Now, let's get you packed and cleaned up so you can go home and work really hard in your classes, okay?" He asked her and she nodded, hugging his neck and he let her down. He whispered something in her ear and she came over to me, hugged my waist and told me she was sorry.
I kissed her head and she went over to the corner and packed her stuff away in her suitcase. "Thank you." I said to Harry and touched his arm, "I thought I would never get her out of here." He smiled at me and hugged me tightly before walking over to Alec and talking to him about something I can't hear. I helped Ciara finish packing and we walked out and knocked on Zayn's door and Niall stepped out. "We have to go now." I said to him, my voice cracking. I was like Ciara, I hated leaving Niall for tour, that's the only thing I miss about touring with them; I got to see niall everyday.
"I'll come for the drive to the ferry." He said in a low tone, he was upset to his family going back but he knew there was nothing he could do. We piled up in the car and we said goodbye to other boys and buckled ourselves in. Alec fell asleep in my lap and Ciara fell asleep in Niall's. He put his arm around me and kissed my forehead. "Everything's going to be okay, okay?" He whispered and nodded my head. "I love you so much, Braelynn." He told me.
"I love you oh so much, Niall." I smiled and leaned into him. "That much longer before you're home anyway, it will go by fast." I smiled.
"It will, it usually does. I just need you to trust that I won't do anything stupid."
"You've gone on tour before?" I giggled. "Why wouldn't I trust you?"
"Just the last couple times Tessa's tried to ruin it." His cheeks flushed and he closed his eyes, I watched a tear slip from his hooded ocean blues and I wiped it for him. "I don't want to loose my family to this life style."
"You won't hunny, I promise. You keep doing what you love and we'll be here to support your every move. You're doing shows in Ireland you're last two months anyway, so we'll see you even before you officially come home." I assured him and he smiled.
"I love when you come to my shows."
"I love going to your shows, baby." I said and kissed him. We stopped at the ferry and we woke up the kids. Niall held Ciara and Alec held my hand and his suitcase as we were about to walk on. "Say goodbye to dad, we'll see him soon though." I said to them and Ciara tried her hardest to keep her tears locked away.
"I love you daddy." He said and squeezed him.
Niall's fingers went to his eyes as he wiped away any evidence of him crying while he held his little girl. "I love you too baby girl." He held his arms opened for Alec and he walked over to him, hugging his waist and nuzzling his face into his stomach. "I love you too, little man."
"I'm not little dad." Alec corrected him. I walked over and we all group hugged before we had to go. "You'll Skype us right?" Alec asked
"Of course." Niall smiled and he kissed us all, waiting for us to get on the boat and waving us off. I could see how red his eyes were and how badly his heart was hurting but he loved his job, and that's what kept him going.
ITS BEEN TOO LONG, ILL TELL YOU THAT! Sorry guys, schools got my head full of stress! Xxbella
