"So you're in Ireland?" Jack asked in a small voice. I nodded, but then remembered they couldn't see me.
"Yeah," I answered. "And I'm going to be here for a while," I added squeezing my eyes together, waiting for something to happen. But nothing happened. I opened my eyes again and furrowed my eyebrows. "Hallo?" I asked into my phone. If I couldn't hear them whisper, I would have thought they had hung up on me.
"How long?" Finn asked in a tone I couldn't define. I thought about it.
"I'll be home for christmas, I think," I answered.
"Christmas? Katelyn, that's four months away!"
"I know, Jack! I'm sorry, I just.." I trailed off. "I just need to get to know my family," I finally answered. The twins winched at my words, but didn't say anything.
"Alright, if that's how you feel, Kate," Jack finally answered sounding really hurt. My stomach dropped to the floor.
"Don't bother Katelyn, I understand you," he answered followed by a depressing sound. He hung up on me. I sigh and lay back on my bed. With my arms I shield my line of vision. Tears tickle down my cheeks as I bite my lip to prevent myself from sobbing.
"Katelyn? Oh, dear, what's the matter?" Maura asks worried and sits down in the bed beside me. I just shake my head and sit up to look at her.
"Nothing serious," I whisper in a tear stained voice, my voice cracking along the way. I wipe under my eyes, but the tears continue flowing so at last I give up.
"Oh, come here!" She says and tucks me into her arms. I sob into her shoulder. "Let it all out, honey." And that's exactly what I did.
Moments later I sober up and pull away from her arms.
"What happened?" She asks. I take a deep breath.
"Finn and Jack, my parents' sons, and basically my brothers, are mad at me because I'm here and I didn't tell them about it," I say all in one breath. Something shifts in her eyes, but I choose to ignore it.
"I'm sorry to hear that, dear," she answers. Then she looks at me like her lightbulb just flicked on.
"Why don't you go with Niall to his residence in London? Then you can see your brothers again, and get it all figured out!" She says. I couldn't help but to laugh. I giggle sprung from my lips before I could stop it.
"I'm sorry, but I highly doubt he would let me into his home," I answers in disbelief. There's no way in hell, Niall would let me stay with him.
"Why not?" She asks confused. I shake my head.
"He barely knows me, I barely know him away from the public eye, I could be a murderer for all he knows," I answers with humorless laugh.
"What would you say, if I knew I wouldn't mind it? That he, in fact, suggested it himself?" She asks. I just blinks up at her.
"What?" She smiles to me, but I can see the sadness in her eyes. I frown.
"You heard me. After you went to bed last night, he called me telling me the exact same thing I just told you. He wants to get to know you, Katelyn! And if I know my son good enough he doesn't take no for an answer," she ramble. When it finally sinks in I smile a cheek splitting smile and throw my arms around her neck.
"Oh, my god!" I squealed. I can finally see Jack and Finn again!
