Moment in time

I gave birth to a shapely little girl. I was seventeen when I became a mom to my daughter. She had just me and I didn't tell her who was her father. I lived a pretty normal life, until he came back.


3. Why?

Lilly sat on Sunday and painted a drawing in her room. I was reading a book on the couch when the doorbell rang. I was surprised and immediately I went out into the hall. To my great surprise, it was Niall again. He just stood there and smiled at me.
"Are you following me?"
He laughed and shook his head.
"I just want to talk to you. Tess please!"
Lilly came out into the hall and looked towards the doorway. She recognized Niall but she instantly became shy.
"Hey!" said Niall directly to her and my heart cried out in pain. "I just want to talk to your mom a little!"
She had a smile and nodded. Then she went back to her room.
"She's a copy of you Tess!"

"Well maybe!" I murmured and gasped out that he didn't saw himself in her. I let him in and watched as he took off his jacket.
"What do you want?" I got out of me whispering. Niall smiled at me and I showed him into the kitchen. We sat down at the table and immediately I noticed that he didn't let me go with his eyes.
"I felt bad since I broke up with you!" he said and I frowned. Did he have to bring up that day? Couldn't we talk about something else?
"Oh!" it came out of my mouth and I looked down at the table. Niall tried to smile, but it wasn't visible on his lips.
"I've thought about calling you, but I didn't know what to say!"

I wanted to scream, I wanted to beat him and I wanted to tell the truth. I was like a dying animal and couldn't defend myself against him. I hated that feeling and I hated that I still loved him.
"It wasn't only my choice to break up with you!" he said, as if I cared. "It was the management and they felt that I wouldn't have a girlfriend for the moment!"
He shook directly on his head and looked at me a long time. He regarded me with probing eyes and I felt how it affected me.
"Tess, I hurt you and I know you can't forgive me." he swallowed. "It was wrong of me and I just want to apologize!"
I was hoping he would go.
"Okay, then I forgive you!"

Lilly came into the kitchen and immediately caught she Nialls interest. I knew he had always loved children and he was the kind of guy who loved to play around. Yet I didn't want that he touched her. She was mine!
"I have painted a cat!" she said and walked over to me. I took the paper and smiled at her.
"So nice drawing you did!"
She nodded proudly and then looked at Niall.
"What's your name?"
He laughed a little bit.
"Niall and what's your name?"
She giggled and crawled up in my lap.
"My name is Lilly and this is my mom, but you know that?"

Niall nodded and I saw at him, he liked her from the first moment. I wanted to ask him to go, but I didn't dare.
"Mom's alone with me!" Lilly continued. "She haven't found a guy yet who fits to be my dad!"
I blushed immediately and wanted to put my hand over her mouth.
"Lilly, you don't tell him that!"
Lilly looked disappointedly at me and then light up.
"But Mom, it's true?"
Niall laughed a little bit and I saw that he was amused.
"But where's your dad?"

Lilly thought for a bit and smiled weakly.
"I don't know and mom don't know, either." she looked at Niall again. "He disappeared before I was born and we haven't seen him since!"


Lilly just had to show the Niall her room and she showed him all the toys. I suffered! I wanted to cry and I wanted to scream! I stood in the doorway and watched them, as Lilly showed her dad around the room. I saw the likeness and it made me only more silence. They were so alike, and he was absolutely wonderful to her. Why couldn't he have come earlier? Why had I been forced to not say anything to him? Yet, I chose to be silent on the subject. Niall was another guy today and he didn't have time for children. He came to me to apologize for what happened long time ago. We were twenty years now and we were adults. I couldn't act like a child to him.


"You have a wonderful daughter!" Niall whispered to me, as he would go home. I just nodded and watched as he put his jacket on. He turned around and stared almost on me, which made ​​me blush.
"I love her!" I whispered. "She's my life!"
He nodded and immediately came up to me. To my great surprise, he hugged me and I swallowed my pride. I hugged him back and enjoyed the proximity to his body. I felt my stomach tingled and how emotions spun around.
"Tess, can't we be friends again?"
I let him uncertainly.
Niall raised his hand and stroked my cheek quickly.
"You are as beautiful as you always have been."
I was surprised and I blushed. What did he mean? Niall turned and walked toward the front door. Did he mean that he loved me, or did he just wanted to say something nice to me?
"How'd you find me?" flew it out of me and directly he smiled charmingly at me.
"Your mom!"
Had he called mom to ask where I lived? I got a question mark on my face and he laughed a little bit at me.
"I wanted to say sorry and she talked to me for a long time about you and your life. She said you were so clever and you took care of Lilly!"
I blushed and dropped words. What could I say?
"uh okay!"
Niall left us and he closed the door behind him. I felt the emptiness and again came the uncomfortable feelings back. Why did he have to show up in my life again?
