I woke up and rolled over to see Niall sound asleep next to me. I looked at the clock on the bed side table. It was nine o'clock. I turned back to Niall, still in sound slumber.
"Niall, time to get up babe." I said as i shock him lightly. He moaned and rolled over. I heard "five more minutes" escape from his lips. 'Just like him' I thought . But, I knew Niall well, very well. So, I knew just what to do. Leaning over I kissed him on the nose.
"Babe, theres food in the kitchen."
Before you could say Nando's, Niall was up and on his way to the fridge. I just sat there laughing, as I said I knew him well. For the nest several minutes all that was heard was the sounds of pots and pans hitting together. I could smell the fresh eggs being cooked and hear the sound of coffee being poured. There was a moment of dead silence and in walked to Niall holding a tray with breakfast for two. He came and sat beside me.
"Have I ever told you how much I love you?" I asked.
"Yes, but I love you more."
"When I was away, all I could think about was you. A week ago I flew to San Diego. It was there that I Knew that I had too be with you again. I Love you Niall. And I don't care what happens as long as we are together. You are my world, now and forever."
Niall leaned in and kissed me. "And your my world to."
As we ate three friendly faces poked their faces into the doorway and they came over and wrapped me in a tight hug.
"UHHH? Harry? Louis? Megs? I cant breathe." They laughed and loosened their grip.
"How did you know I was back?"
"Niall called us last night." Louis said.
"Yeah, and first thing this morning we got the first faire over here." Megs giggled nervously.
"Niall called you?"
I turned to Niall was sitting there trying to keep a straight face, he was failing. I burst into laughter.
"Wait? your not mad Babe?"
"Yeah I'm mad that Liam isn't here."
"He is on his way, but there is someone else who really missed you and wants to see you. I'll be right back." Louis left the room and came back with a toddler about a year and a half old. He looked just like his dad. Dark brown hair, greenish-blue eyes and healthy pic cheeks. He was holding Louis' hand tight he still wasn't used to waking yet.
"Freddie!" I said bending now to him. Freddie came running to my arms.
"Niall, I bet you cant wait to start a family yourself!" Megs teased.
"No, I cant wait to have kids of my own."
Liam walked in not long after. He looked the same as he always did, tall and handsome. He came over to me and hugged me. I was still holding Freddie, so the poor kid was stuck in the bear hug that I was also trapped in.
"Bella I was so worried about you. I am so happy your back!"
"I missed you to, Liam."
We talked for the next several hours and we played with the baby. It was getting dark and everyone was getting hungry. We all decided to go out and celebrate. Niall wanted to eat at Nando's, Harry and Megs didn't care, Louis wanted a place that was kid friendly and safe, and Liam wanted Italian.
In the end we all went to Nando's. After dinner and with the help of a very large glass of wine, I stood up and asked for everyones attention."So guys," I said clearing my throat. "I would like to come back to One Direction, if you will have me."
"What are you talking about? Of course we will have you back Bella! You are a member of the band and our family and you always will be!!" Louis said.
"What made you change your mind, Bel?" Megs asked me from the far end of the table.
"Well, I realized that I was being stupid and rash. I knew that you guys were right, I was letting others control and run my life, when I should have been standing up for myself. Niall, Liam, Harry, and Louis. In the short time that I have been with you on the road I learned something very important. It only took the time I was away to realize it. You guys have become not only my best friends, but my big brothers and so much more." I said looking to the others and then down to Niall. "You are my family and I belong here with you." I sat back down to looked to Niall, who took my hand in his and gave it a tight squeeze.
Harry stood up and took hold of Megs hand. "Guys I, I mean we have some news for you. We've been dating for the past two months now. And we decided that's it's time for you to know."
"That's wonderful congrats guys!" Liam practically shouted.
Overcome by the excitement, Niall and I kissed for a long moment unaware of the crowds.
"I love you to the moon and back!" I said.
"I love you more!"
