7. Everything Is a Fight to you!

"Aria? Aria! Baby, wake up!" I opened my eyes and looked around. I'm in a taxi with Niall and Zayn. Liam, Harry, and Louis are behind us. I don't remember getting off the plane. Niall and Zayn were a little freaked out. The whole front of Niall's shirt was soaked. We pulled into the driveway of a little white house. "We're here." He said coldly. There was pain in his voice.


The house was just absolutely beautiful. New Furniture. New appliances. New....everything really. There were 2 bedrooms on the main floor and 2 bedrooms on downstairs. Kitchen was on one end of the main floor with a screened in porch and a gorgeous back patio with a pool. The kitchen counter had four stools at the bar and a breakfast nook. (Perfect for dinners!) Downstairs looked like a mini apartment that was turned into a gameroom type thing with 2 furnished bedrooms. Just absolutely breath taking.


Niall and I were in the middle of unpacking our room when he kinds dropped and kinda threw the polo he was bout to hang up.


"What is it?" I asked him. He shook his head. "Niall, talk to me. I know you're upset."


"You." he said sitting down on the bed. "What was your the taxi?" I sat next to him and put my head on his shoulder.


"He had you, me and Liam..." I said.


"What about Harry, Zayn and Louis?"


"I don't know. I think they were dead but I hope I'm wrong about that."


"Aria, dammit!" Tears were streaming down my face. I didn't understand why he was so upset with me. I sat down on the bed and buried my face in my hands. "Aria, no. Baby, I didn't mean it." He put his hand on my back and I shrugged it off. Niall got frustrated and left the room. I began to cry harder. He has never been this upset with me...and I haven't the slightest clue as to what I did wrong. I got up and went and ran a nice hot bath for me to relax. While the water was filling up in the tub, there was a knock on the bathroom door.


"Aria?" The voice called. It was Harry. "Aria, let me in."


"Now is so not a good time, Haz."


"Aria, I'm serious. Let me in." I put on my bathrobe and opened the door.


"What is it?" I asked.


"I think Niall is gonna do something to hurt himself."


"Harry, what do you mean?"


"I--I don't know. He just walked out the door. Slammed it hard behind him, may I say? And just fucking drove off."


"Uhhh---shit." I grabbed my phone from off of the bed and the phone on the bedside table. I scrolled down to Niall's number and dialed it on the landline phone.


Hey you've reached Niall Horan. Please leave a message after the beep!


"Dammit Niall! Now is not the time to do this shit!"


"What shit?" I heard from behind me. I turned around and saw Niall standing in the doorway. Harry left the room to give us some privacy. "And why are you in your bathrobe with Harry in the room?"


"Niall--" I started.


"I left for 10 minutes to grab something for supper to calm down and I come home to you naked under your bathrobe with Harry!"


"I was trying to take a hot bath while you were gone. Haz knocked on the bathroom door telling--"


"I don't wanna hear it, Aria." He sat on the bed. I sighed angrily and proceeded to walk back to the bathroom to actually finish getting my bath ready, slamming the door behind me. I added some bubble bath to the water and hung my bathrobe on the back of the door. I slowly eased in the water and closed my eyes. As I began thinking, I realized that I had began crying again. I tried to relax. He probably threw out my pack of cigarettes I had in my apartment. God I was killing for one right about now. Once again there was knocking on the door. "Ari?" Niall called. I ignored him. He slowly opened the door and walked in. He pulled up a stool next to the bathtub. "Ari?" I ignored him still. He put his hand on my arm. "Aria, I'm sorry. I don't know what came over me. You need to realize that he is in a whole 'nother country now and he cannot hurt you here. I love you and I just want you safe." I finally opened my eyes to look at him.


"Then you need to stop assuming that I'm sleeping or doing something with your mates." I said angrily. I closed my eyes back to tune everything else out.


"You're so stubborn, Aria! I talked to Haz. You really thought I was going to hurt myself?" I sat silent for a moment. "Fine! I'll leave you alone. I'm sleeping in the spare room."


"You wait just a minute, Niall! With the way you fucking exploded on me, I didn't know what stupid crap you would attempt. Next time, don't get mad at me for my nightmares. You have no earthly idea what I went through WITHOUT you. Second, watch how you talk to me. We have been best friends since I was pretty much born, Niall. Think about that. You interrupting me, that's rude. I know your mum has told you that when we were growing up. Don't think about doing that to me ever again, or we will have problems." I finished my rant. Niall just sat silent with his head down. I hope this is the only time I have to stand up to him.


"Aria, look at me please." He said after a moment. I looked over at him. I couldn't tell if I was glaring at him or just plainly looking at him. "I love you. I'm sorry." I just nodded. He leaned in and kissed my forehead. I grabbed my towel, covered up, and drained the tub. Niall wrapped his arms around me while I buried my face in his chest and began sobbing. "What is it?" He asked.


"Nothing." I said all muffled. "You just make me so mad sometimes, Niall."


"It's my job." He smiled. At this I glared up at him. He's sooo....he's sooooo....Niall. There really is no way to describe him.


"I love you." I said all muffled again. I just wanted to be in his arms no matter how mad I was at him.


"I love you too, now get dressed darling." I nodded but didn't move. "Awh, Ari." He was so warm. I didn't wanna let go. I put on my sleep pants and one of his t-shirts. We laid down in the bed and cuddled. "I'm right here, Ari. Nothing is going to happen to you. I won't let anyone hurt you." I nodded. I wasn't afraid of anyone hurting me, I just didn't wanna say anything because of how I talked to him earlier. I was afraid that something mean would come out. I didn't want to hurt him. "You hungry?" he asked. I nodded. "Come on. There's chili in the kitchen." We both got a bowl of chili with sour cream, cheese and fritos. "Ari, talk to me, please." I shook my head no. "Why not?"


"I'm afraid to." I said.


"Why baby?"


"Because I don't wanna say anything mean."


"Baby, don't worry about that. We both said things. What matters is this very moment right now. So talk to me, Aria."


"Ok, Niall." I looked at the clock. It's midnight. "Let's see if mum is awake?"


"Ok, babe." He pulled out his laptop and called her on skype.


"Hey sweetie," She answered.


"Hey mum." I said .I was still trying to get over the fight.


"What's wrong?" What sucks is that she always knows something is wrong with just the way I talk.


"Nothing. Just been a bad day." Niall left the room so I could talk to my mum alone."


"Is it Niall?" I nodded and tears began to just stream from my eyes. "Did you have a fight?" I nodded again. She sighed and looked at me.


"I had a nightmare in the taxi that the guys that took me had Niall and Liam. And that Zayn, Harry, and Louis were just M.I.A.. When we were unpacking, he asked about the dream and got mad when I told him. I went to take a bath and apparently he left. Harry came and knocked on the bathroom door worried that Niall would do something to harm himself, so I came out of the bathroom in my robe and called Niall on the landline and it went straight to voicemail. Niall came up behind me and scared me and pretty much assumed that I was doing something with Harry. Then proceeded to interrupt me when I was trying to tell him what was going on. So I walked away and took a hot bath. He came in and started to talk to me and then I exploded on him."


"Wow, Aria." she said. "Is everything alright now?"




"Then why are you crying, dear?"


"Because he makes me so mad sometimes."


"Well dear, if it's all resolved now, let it go. I know you love each other. I've seen that since you were kids. You need to remember that he's probably still really sensitive to everything you told him withing the past week. That's a lot to take in right after getting home from tour. Put yourself in his shoes." I let out a yawn. "What time is it there?" She asked.


"Almost 1 in the morning."


"Then go to bed, Aria. I don't know why you insist on staying up this late if you're already sleepy. I love you dear."


"I love you too, mum. Goodnight."


"Goodnight." She hung up. I grabbed my empty bowl and went in to the kitchen to wash it. The guys were sitting in the living room watching The Avengers.


"Feeling better?" Niall asked me as I sat next to him and laid my head on his shoulder.


"Better than I was a couple hours ago."


"Good. This house was kinda a surprise for you." I shot him a confused look. "I told you I wanted to move to London right?" He asked. I looked at him and nodded. "I already bought this house for when we need to get out of the states for a vacation. And I knew you would love the renovations."


"I do love it, Niall. Everything is just perfect." I smiled my first real smile since the other night.


"I looked through your pinterest." He grinned an evil grin. "This is our place. As in mine and yours. The guys are sleeping here tonight and then next weekend out parents are coming to spend time with us before we go on tour. But no matter what happens, this is our house now. If we decide to be just friends, the room across can be yours...or mine. It doesn't matter--" I cut him off with a kiss. Our mums know that we cuddle at night. It's what we've always done. I pulled away from the kiss. "God Ari." He said. I've never felt this way while kissing a guy.


"Nothing on God's green earth will split us up, Nialler." I smiled  as he pushed his lips against mine.
