Let me love you - Friendzone

Emma O'Brian:
Never thought that one night could have changed my life as much as this night did.
but there must come something good out of all the bad right? but for now I'm done. Done with boys, done with friends, done with everything.
just didn't think that that night would have changed that too..

Niall Horan:
feeling lost, feeling alone and felling like I'm going to stay that way forever isn't what people needs to see. so hiding at my dads house was the only way to disappear for a while. at least until people knows I'm there.


12. Forgiveness is better than to hold on to all the bad

- Emma -


the weeks went on. Niall and I grew closer by the day and it was like we hadn't had the spur of the moment wedding like we did. it was like we had known each other for the longest time and his family had taken me in like I had always been a part of it.

my parents was a whole different story. I don't even know if they know I'm married. I was still working up the courage to call my dad about it when I got a call from the man himself.

I hadn't talked to him for almost a month and to say I was surprised was an understatement.


"Emma Lee, you have something you want to tell me?" He said not beating around the bush.

"father, I.. what do you mean?" I stammered as I stopped putting the dishes into the dishwasher.

"Emma..." He said.

"I got married." I told him bluntly, more so than what I had planed to do.

"I know. Who is this boy?" he asked sounding curious.

"his name is Niall. he lived just a few blocks from us in Ireland." I said making my way into the kitchen to put the kettle on.

"and now you are married to him? why weren't your parents invited?" he asked and I could hear the disappointment in his voice.

"Dad...  Niall and I, we.. we eloped, his family wasn't there either." I sighed.

"my only daughter and I didn't even have the chance to walk her down the aisle." he mumbled.

"dad.. don't that.." I sighed again.

"sweetheart, I know I haven't been father of the year while you where growing up but I want to change. I want to be there for you." his voice was wobbly and I couldn't help but to tear up at his words.

"I know dad." I whispered.

"but I can't do all the work, you have to let me in." he sighed.

"I know dad." I said again.

"I've been working on some stuff with the company, I'm stepping down a little so I can be closer to home." he told me.

"really? you're doing that for me?" I asked feeling hopeful.

"yes, I want to be more involved with your life. I want to meet this boy of yours and I want to be there for you."

"what about mother?" I asked cautiously.

"We...  We've been fighting a lot for many years now. we only really stayed together for you and for keeping the image in front of the company. I didn't really want to say this over the phone but your mother left me. she wants to get a divorce. apparently she found a sheik or something over here in Dubai." My father told me.

"I'm sorry dad, but as long as you're happy its okay." I told him.

"I'll be fine." he said.


I wasn't as sad as I thought I would be if my parents were getting a divorce. I had seen all the fights, heard all the harsh words and felt the tension between them for years. before they themselves had admitted that they needed to separate ways. I was happy for them, that they finally realised that they didn't need to be together any more.


"I'm coming back to the UK in a few weeks, maybe we could have lunch then?" My dad asked carefully.

"yeah, I would like that. I'll talk to Niall and see what we could come up with." I said.

"I'm looking forward to that."

"Me too dad. Me too." I couldn't help but to smile.


All I had ever wanted was some attention from my parents. Not because of something I had done. I just wanted to know that I was wanted by them.

I had given up on my mother a long time ago but I had always had hope about my father. he wasn't really a bad man. he was just a busy man. it was better to forgive and to let it go then to let it all haunt me for the rest of my life.


We said out goodbyes a little while later and I turned to the kettle that was long cold by now and dried the tear that was falling down.


"are you okay?" my husband asked behind as he walked into the kitchen.

"oh my god, you scared me." I said as I jumped at the sound of him.

"Oh I'm sorry love. Didn't mean to scare you." he chuckled walking up to me.

"I'm fine." I said.

"you're not but if you want to talk about it I'm here." he said as he pulled me into his arms.

"I just got a call from my dad. he and my mother are getting a divorce and he his moving back to the UK." I told him as I hid my face in the crook of his neck.

"You okay?" he asked stroking his hands up and down my back.

"yeah I'm fin actually. it has been a long time in the making." I smiled weekly against the soft skin just above his shirt.

"so what did he say?" Niall asked.

"he wanted to  have lunch when he gets back. He says he wants to be more involved in my life and he wants to meet you." I told him.

"we could do that.. if that is something you would want?" Niall asked cautiously.

"yeah, I think that he deserves a second chance. Would you come with me?" I asked and stepped back a little to look at him.

"I would follow you to the end of the world if I could. if you want me there count me in." he smiled.

"yeah, I want you two to meet." I smiled back.

"So we'll set something up when he gets back. whatever you feel that you are ready for darling." he said giving me an other hug.

"how could I have been so lucky to marry you again?" I chuckled.

"I found you sitting alone in the middle of the night in the middle of the park in the cold. you weren't chasing me or screaming in my face or wanting me because of my fame. I believe that I am the lucky one." his smile grew even bigger.

"sentimental now are we?" I asked felling the tears once again making their way into my eyes.

"I'm just honest." he said.

"well I love you for it and lets agree that we are both the lucky ones." I smiled.

"I'll drink to that." he smiled.


I had not even knowing it married the best human in the world. he was supportive and kind, super handsome and talented. I couldn't find anything wrong with this man. he was best thing that had ever happened to me and I was falling more in love with him every day.

it wasn't the first time I had realised this but I was equally surprised ever time I did. it was like a part of me didn't think I deserved to be this happy. that I wasn't suppose to have my happy ending. I had Carter to thank for that, Without me even knowing it he had broke me down more than I could have realised. I was so thankful for Niall though, he had helped building me up again. 

I just couldn't help the irritating felling in the back of my head making it known that everything can't be this good all the time. Something bad would surely happen. I didn't know when and I didn't know what but I knew that something would happen.


Niall kissed my forehead and hugged me before stepping around me to put the tea into our mugs. we had a quiet night in front of the TV that night and I couldn't help myself but to enjoy it more, to make sure that everything was like a movie in my head. A memory I could always remember.

it was nearly 4 o'clock in the morning when the phone rang again. I knew that it was bad. it was just a feeling but I knew. it was really bad.


"Mrs Horan? Carter has escaped."





I am so so so so so very sorry for the delay. I hope you like this chapter. this is the beginning to the end. this book will not be as long as the other two but don't think there will be less drama.

I've had a really bad case of writer's block again. but now I think it's gone. so this chapter is probably not as good as previous chapters but the next will be better.

All the love. Sarah
