I Know You Care

Everything was going perfect in my life. Until I saw him, standing there and looking perfect. Everything would've stayed perfect if I'd never spoken to him, if I had just walked away from him.They say that good things come to those who wait. I'm getting really sick if waiting.


5. Young and Beautiful

*Song of the chapter: Young and Beautiful by Lana Del Ray*


The walk home from Ally's was peaceful but I was feeling lonely. She made me feel, as cheesy as it sounds, alive. I knew she had a boyfriend, and I knew I had a girlfriend but when I was with her, all I knew was that I wanted to stay with her. She was exciting, beautiful, intriguing, perfect. When I pulled out my phone, I immediately sent her a message before seeing any of the other messages. It wasn't anything too much, it was just 'hey, it's Harry :)' and that was it.

I went through the other messages and I saw one that stood out.

From Niall:

Hey, I need your advise on something with Ally. I need you to meet her soon. I'm thinking about marrying her.

I replied instantly. Not because of him thinking about marrying her, but because he used Ally and that could be my Ally.

To Niall:

What's Ally's last name?

I thought it'd take hours for a reply but he replied within seconds.

From Niall:

Daniels. She's the girl from X-Factor. How is it that everyone's met her except you? I'll send a picture.

When I read the message something in my stomach fell. And when I opened the picture of him and Ally smiling at the camera, completely happy, I just wanted to cry. Not only had I fallen for a girl when I had a girlfriend, I had fallen for my best friend's girl. The girl he was thinking of marrying.

I took an extra hour to pull myself together. I had forgotten about how much I liked Ally and guilt took it's place. I walked around the streets of London and the fog was starting the disappear. The sun had risen. When I got home, I was bombarded with questions from the boys and Paul. I was told that I was 'on lockdown' for the next two nights and I felt like a small child. Instead of answering any questions, I walked past everyone and went to my room for sleep before meeting Emmy for lunch later.



"Niall, are you going to tell me what's going on? You've been acting weird all night. Seriously, what's going on?" I asked Niall. He was sitting across the table and we were at an extravagant restaurant where he sat in a tuxedo and me in a knee-length navy colored dress.

"For the hundredth time, I'm fine, Ally. I just want you to know I love you."

I was taken back by his random 'I love you.' I mean, yes, we've said it many times but not when he was acting this weird. Fidgety and hardly looking at me. "Are you going to break up with me and leave me the bill or something?" I asked him with a grin on my face.

He smiled along with me and grabbed my hand from across the table. "No babe, I just want to show you I love you and that I'm really sorry about not seeing you as much."

"I love you, too, Niall, but a make-up thing is just like a trip to the beach, not an overpriced restaurant that gives hardly any food. I know you, and I know that we'll be going to the first McDonald's we see on our way home."

"You're right, but I have a surprise for you and I wanted to give it to you in a special way."

My eyebrows scrunched up a little before Niall continued speaking. "I told you my families coming over from Mullingar and they're here in London now. I really wanted you to meet them tonight."

Most girls would freak out and say no. I always loved meeting the parents. I think it's just me because all of my friends think I'm crazy for it. "Okay, well, we could do that. Could we stop by my flat so I don't look so over dressed, though?"

"Sure, love."

The rest of dinner was nice. We had innocent flirting and playful jokes. In that moment, there was no thought of anything that had happened that previous night, all I knew was that Niall and I were perfect right now. All ideas of ending it with him were over and I realized I was being stupid for even thinking it. I was being selfish. He was in one of the most famous bands in the world. I was lucky he was still in England.


It was about one in the morning and we had left Niall's house about an hour ago. For some reason, Niall wanted to go on the London Eye. I wasn't going to argue, I loved riding it. It gave you a view of so much and it was a magical feeling to be at the top of the Eye and face The Big Ben the way you do.

Niall's family was great. They were staying in town for another two weeks and his mom already had plans to have lunch together and go on a shopping trip, which I happily agreed to.

"So, when am I going to meet your parents?" Niall asked as we were on our way to the top of the ride.

"Well, they live in Isle of Man so that's almost ten hours away. We can meet them whenever. We could go there tomorrow if you so pleased," I said in a joking manner.

"Let's do it then. Let's go there tomorrow. What do you say?"

I really didn't expect him to be serious. "Well, if you really want to, then I suppose we could?"

"Excellent. Wow, we're almost to the top."

I looked out on the horizon and saw that we were. We had about two stops left till we reached the top.

I had my hands on the railings and I felt Niall put his over mine. "Ally, the night has been kind of mushy and lovey and all that kind of stuff but I just want to let you know it's fixing to get worse. We've been friends for over three years. We've liked each other that whole time so it's like we've been dating for three years, I was just too much of a coward to ask you out. Before we were dating, we acted like a couple. We'd lay around and watch movies together for hours, we'd kiss, we'd say I love you, everything couples do. I know I've been gone a lot for recordings or concerts or something but I've figured out a way for us to be together as much as we want and still be a happy couple."

The ride had stopped at the top and Niall got down on one knee. "I know this is majorly rushing things, but will you live in the moment with me and marry me?"


Hey guys, I know, major cliff hanger. I'm sorry if you guys think we're rushing things in this chapter, but trust me, it won't be rushed. It'll be more explained in the next chapter which will be up sometime tomorrow. Also, I'm sorry if this chapter is kind of all over the place, I wanted to give you guys a longer chapter so I hope you all like it. Just remember, I'm not trying to rush things and it will all slow down next chapter.

I hope you guys like it and leave your comments for if she should say yes or no! Thanks guys!
