"Daddy!" I heard Ciara screech whenever I walked in the door. I caught her when she jumped in my arms and spun her around, kissing her cheek. "Miss me?" I ask and she starts crying, screaming actually. I try and hush her, wiping away her tears and telling her it's okay. I feel a pair of hands tug at my shirt and I look down to see my boy looking up at me with watery eyes.
I sit on the floor and hug them both, Alec's was trying his hardest not to cry but it didn't take long until he was screaming like his sister. "Daddy, can you quit your job?" Ciara asked with a pout and rubbed her flooding eyes.
"Yeah dad, can you? Mommy misses you, Ciara misses you, I miss you. Dad, we just miss you!" He belched out and smothered his face into my shoulder. I sign and look at Braelynn, she just shrugs and that's when I notice her busted lip and a slightly blackened eye.
"Jesus Braelynn, what did you do?" Lou asks and Braelynn laughs, turning the TV to Ross' show and letting Lou watch what happened. It was funny to see Braelynn on TV screaming at Tessa to back up off her family.
"Daddy." Ciara whispered with her eyes glued to the TV.
"Hmm?" I hummed.
"When I grow up, I wanna be just like mommy." She said with a smile.
Braelynn got her own room today, just right across from Lou and I was staying there with her. The boys would be here soon, this was the hotel we were staying in and thank god they had rooms left. Braelynn was sleeping on the bed with Alec right beside her, her arms held him close to her and it was the best thing I've ever seen.
I was beside them, Braelynn's back to my side with Ciara laying in between us sleeping. I pulled my phone out and took a quick picture with my tongue out and sent it to twitter, captioning it 'Nap time with the Famjam.' You could see Braelynn's black eye bluntly in the photo, but whatever. She was just standing up for her family and that's something people need to realize.
Within minuets I was getting notifications and retweets. Obviously some people were screaming at me for being there with my family, but the hell with them. I was so proud of Braelynn today, she is the best thing that has ever happened to me and I'm so glad I have a family with her. Even if I'm gone half the time, it won't last. Being a celebrity never lasts and I want to get as much as I can in while it last, I'm surprised it lasted this long.
I felt my phone buzz beside me, "hello?" I said into it.
"Hey, what's going on?" It was Zayn.
"Nothing, laying with the kids." I said with a smile.
"I seen the picture, Ciara's getting big eh." He said and I could already see his tongue between his teeth as he smiled.
"Don;t remind me." I rub my face and slowly get up out of the bed and walk out to the blechony, closing the doors behind me and sitting on the chair that was on the deck. "Whatcha call for?" I asked.
"Ah, people have been trying to get a hold of you. Like people in Tv and management ."
"They've been asking to interview us with Braelynn, and they want us to do a song with her. They want her to come back on tour with us, I told them I didn't think either of you would do it."
"I don't know, like we have the kids and everything." I looked at my fingers and then back at Braelynn, she's been offered record deals and even her own tour but it's just not something she wanted. She doesn't want to be known as the 'sell out' and I respect that. Usually people who get lucky like she did jump at the chance of anything to do with getting five minuets of fame. She's so smart.
"The kids came on tour when they were three, I'm sure they could handle it at 12." He said.
"I don't know, Lad. Being on tour really drains you, going from city to city, country to country." I bite my nails, I was honestly scared to even bring it up.
"If it got to be too much they could always stay with your parents. I don;t know, mate. Just think about it and talk to her about it, I think it would be fun to have her on tour again. The fans loved her last time."
"Last time was a little over 12 years ago, Zayn. Have you not seen her interview with Johnathan?"
"That was her first interview in years, and what were people thinking? She would kiss Tessa's ass? Perrie would've done the same, and so would've Sophia."
"I'll talk to her about it."
"But anyway, not even just the tour. Al Murray wants us on his talk show later next week, the late night talk show?" He said, that caught my attention. "All of us and Breaylnn, he wants us to do a duet with her and then he wants a solo with her. He's willing to even pay."
"She defiantly won't do it for money. She's not that type."
"Either way, he wants her on the show and he wants her bad."
"I'll talk to you later, lad." I hung up and walked back in and noticed Braelynn was up and in the bathroom. The kids were still sleeping and I knocked on the door. I heard the door lock click and I slowly opened it, I heard her sniff and then she turned her back to me. "Hey, what's wrong?" I asked and touched her sides, craddling her from behind and kissing her neck.
She turned around and put her face in my shoulder, her hands playing with the ends of my shirt and I pulled away a little. I took her face in my hands and wiped her tears with my thumbs, she just looked at me. She was in pain and I didn't know why she was crying like this or feeling like this. "Baby, what's wrong?" I asked and she just sniffed.
"I don't know." She said, her face was beet red from trying to holding back her tears and sobs. Her hands went to her hair and she tugged at it, pulling it back. "I just wanna scream, Niall. I don't know what's wrong, I-I just feel like shit and my body hurts." Her arms slapped her thighs and she seethed. "Why does my body hurt?" She sounded so much like a child I felt like I was talking to Ciara.
"No, don't cry." I whispered and she just sobbed out loud. "Your body probably hurts because you speared Tessa twice, broke a table, almost had your nose broken... Do I need to go on?" I asked and she shook her head. "Come here, I have something to ask you." I opened my arms and sat on the toilet, she sat in my lap and laid her head on my shoulder. "So, Zayn called me and he told me some really good news but I don't know if you're going to go for it."
"What is it?"
I explained everything to her, to the interview next week after our first show and the duet and the solo. "But there's something else." I almost coughed. She hummed in response, "you'll never guess." I was trying to stall this conversation because I know she's probably going to loose her mind. "Management wants you back on tour this year."
She coughed, choked on air and stood up from my lap. She walked out of the living room and outside, closing the doors and leaning over the ledge of the deck. I opened the doors, looking back to make sure the kids are still sleeping. "So.." I say and she looks at me.
"I'll do the interview shit, but I'm not going back on tour. Why would they want me back on tour? It's been like 12 years since I've even put a foot on the stage, or even a mic to mouth. I have two kids who are 12 fucking years old and I'm not going to make them travel all over the place. No way, I know the downs to tours and there's no way in hell I'm doing it to them or myself for that matter."
"Okay, that's all you had to say." I laugh and kiss her cheek.
"I'm sorry, I don't mean to come off crazy. It's just I would never put my kids threw that, that's all."
" I know, baby. I know." I said and she leaned on the side of me, my arm draped around her and her head on my shoulder. "Beautiful view isn't it?" I asked and she nodded.
