4. Chapter 4

Paisley's POV


After Niall's laughing fit was over we were properly introduced.  He is a really cool guy and now I feel really awkward about having dirty thoughts about him. Anyways I don't really know but he just brightens my day, in a cousin way though.  I feel a sense of relief and that a bunch of pressure is taken off of my shoulders.  Is it crazy that I think my cousin who I've known for 5 minutes can help me with depression? I really should stop thinking so much because I didn't realize that everyone was ready to eat.  Gosh I'm starving.


After everyone finished their dinner they all mumbled a thank you as I took away their plates and glasses to do the dishes.  I honestly feel like Cinderella, now where is my prince charming and when is he going to save me from all this cleaning?  I seriously cant complain right now because I feel like my life is going to turn around just because of one person.


5 minutes later and I'm finished with the dishes, I walk back into the dining room to be told to for me and Niall to get to know each other more while my Uncle and Mom catch up.  I trail up the stairs with Niall following behind me.  Once in my room we sit down and just start talking about life well mostly me asking questions about his childhood and rise to fame.  He explains to me that he had an average childhood and being famous is both a blessing and a curse.  Niall begins to ask me questions about my life but soon regret takes over his expression as soon as I start crying.


"Paisley, I'm sorry, i really didn't mean to make you upset.  Gosh, I've been in the same room with you and i already for less then an hour and i already managed to make you cry.  I'm the worst cousin in the world.", he rambled on until i told him to shut up.  I proceeded to tell him a little bit about my life, i didn't go into full detail because i obviously couldn't trust him all the way yet.  Even him knowing a little bit is hard because the only person who knows everything is Paige.


"Niall, i barley know you so I'm not telling you the whole story but ill tell you a little bit." i paused, waiting for a sign to continue in which he nodded "lets just say my dad basically walked out on me and I'm bullied a lot."  Yeah i know what your thinking, the whole cliché 'dead beat dad and sob story blah blah blah' when really you don't know half of it.


I don't even realize I'm full out sobbing until i hear Niall whispering that everything is going to be alright and that he will always be there for me.  Surprisingly he gets me to calm down, no one has ever been able to do this besides Paige, well she is the only other one who tried but still I'm surprised.  Now that i think about it Niall and Paige are a lot alike and would actually be adorable together.  I seriously think I'm bipolar because i go from depressed to a mischievous match maker.



Another hour passes when we both realize that its extremely late and are both in much need of rest, not to mention i have school tomorrow.  We said out good nights and for once in my life i feel into a deep peaceful sleep.





Niall's POV


Seeing my cousin of like an hour cry breaks my heart.  I know she cant trust me all the way yet, heck we only met a little bit ago but whenever she told me a little bit about being bullied and her dad I already wanted to beat the living shit out of anyone who is making her miserable.  I know I haven't know her long but I feel as if I should protect her from anything and everything.  She's such a fragile girl who needs some support.


I see her eyelids begin to droop as we both glance at the clock.  Its a little past midnight and I'm assuming she has school tomorrow.  With that we both said goodnight.  I walked over to the room i would be sleeping in and fell asleep with my mind being filled with worry.




Paige's POV


I left Paisleys house earlier today still a bit worried about her seeing as though she fainted.  Her stupid mom probably wouldn't even care if she found out, that pisses me off so much.  I hope more people begin to care for Paisley, she really needs it, they just haven't realized what an amazing girl she is.

I sit on my bed thinking about everything, trying not to worry about Paisley.  She usually texts me by now  to at least say something about One Direction.  Gosh I'm so stupid, she is probably talking to her uncle and cousin.  I have nothing to worry about now so i drift off into a peaceful slumber filled with dreams of me and One Direction.  Hopefully, one day my dreams will come true.




(A/N: sorry for the crappy chapter!, hopefully the next one will get better!  So you got a peak into why Paisley is the way she is.  What do you think is the full story?  Will Paisley play matchmaker?  Isn't Niall such a sweet cousin? What do you think will happen next? Let me know what you think in the comments! Love you!) *take_your_records*
