Caitlyn (A Niall Horan Fan Fiction)

It was too bright, I couldn’t open my eyes. Or better, the light was too bright. It meant, I wasn’t dead. Again. - Caitlyn Harris


17. Chapter 17

As Niall slowly pulled away, we both took deep breaths. Standing speechless we looked into each other's eyes. It seemed like his would ask 'Do you understand now?' and mine answer 'You couldn't explain it better'.

Niall's P.O.V.

I stood up and went up the stairs. I heard someone follow me but didn't feel like turning around to see who it was. I was furious.

As I arrived to my room I shut the door behind me and just felt like yelling as I punched the wall next to the window. I stood there looking out through the glass until I heard a knock on the door.

"Niall?" Caitlyn said softly as she knocked again. "Niall, can I come in?"

I stayed quiet and heard her open the door. I didn't know what to say; I was angry and didn't want to hurt her.

"Niall." She put her hand on my shoulder as she came nearer. I turned around to see her wonderful eyes staring at mines while a wisp of her messy, lightly curly hair fell on her face. She looked so beautiful. "When you went out before, Harry came to me and apologized."

"But this doesn't matter Caitlyn." I said as I turned more to her. "He still hurt you."

She stared once at my left eye, then at the right and then again at the left one, changing all the time.

"Can I at least know why you care so much?"

We looked at each other without speaking. Yes, I had the answer. But was this the right one? Would she understand? What if it was wrong? What if she wouldn't want it at all and hate me for that? But from the other side, I had to admit; this was the perfect chance for me to show her what I felt. I so carefully wrapped my arms around her waist and smashed my lips against hers. I was scared. I was scared she would pull away and never ever talk to me. But no, hell, no. She was far from that. She may not have expected it, but she soon kissed back. Yes, she did. She kissed back wrapping her arms around my neck and pulled closer. Damn, I was in heaven.

As I slowly pulled away, we both took deep breaths. Standing still we looked into each other's eyes. I didn't know what she was thinking about, but I couldn't stop wondering about how she could find herself ugly, even though she was the most beautiful girl I've ever seen. About how her big, blue eyes could hypnotize you, so amazing they were. About the way she blushed every time somebody did something nice for her. About the small dimples which appeared on her cheeks every time a smile grew on her face. About how her long, brown hair fit her perfectly, even if they were messy. And about how nervous I became every time I was nearby her, so breathtaking she was.


"Niall, hello?"

"Niaaaaaaall?" Caitlyn laughed as she lightly waved her hand. I quickly shook my head realizing what was happening. "Niall, you're alright? You've been staring at me like this for a couple of minutes."

"I-I'm sorry i-it's just..." I stuttered and felt my cheeks burn. "I-I..."

"Yes?" She laughed again.

Instead of answering I wrapped my arms around her and pulled her into a hug. She didn't even have a chance to protest or hug back, so tight I squeezed her.

"Please promise me," I quietly said. "Please promise me you'll never leave me."

"If you lef me bfif fen maybe." She muttered giggling. I didn't even notice that her head was buried in my chest.

"Oh my God I'm so sorry I didn't mea-"

"Niall." She cut me off laughing. "Shut up."

I opened my mouth and put my left hand on my chest, pretending to be hurt.

"Actually the heart is on the left side but, erhm, whatever flows your boat."

I looked down realizing that my hand was at the wrong place and immediately moved it at the right one, what made her laugh even more. I would do everything to keep this priceless smile on her face forever.

"Actually I didn't mean touching my heart at all." I said with a serious-joking face. "I was just checking out if my right boob got bigger because it used to be smaller than the left one." Caitlyn wouldn't stop laughing at what I said, what made it even more difficult for me than it already was to be serious. "Oh and I've got exactly the same problem with my ass. Look!" I turned around sticking out my bum and looked at both of my buttocks with a bitch-face.

"I'm gonna get a six-pack!" She laughed out.

"And I won't even talk about my-"

"Don't you dare Niall." She cut me off giving a serious look what made us laugh like two retarded seals.

Caitlyn's P.O.V.

I was wondering what would happen if I didn't cut him off. I mean, would he start speaking about how big his you know what I mean are? Or rather EARTH TO CAITLYN WHAT ARE YOU EVEN THINKING ABOUT.


"Caitlyn, hello?"

"Caitlyn, you're alright? You've been staring at me like this for a couple of minutes." Niall said waving his hand.

"Did I really?" I asked surprised.

"Of course not it's just HEY I like your T-Shirt!" He put his arms on his hips.

I knew it.

"Thanks." I blushed because of my freaking T-Shirt like why the fuck did I even blush because of my T-Shirt.

"I'm starving." He said looking at his stomach.

"Wow what a surprise it's not like I'd expect that or something." I tried to be serious as he wouldn't stop chuckling. It was adorable.

He smiled and looked at me.

"Do I have something on my face or...?" I asked laughing.

"No it's just that I can't stop looking at you so beautiful you are." He giggled looking straight into my eyes.

"Oh shut up." I rolled my eyes and turned around heading towards the door.

"Where are you going?" He asked confused.

"To Nando's, don't you want to come?"

"Is that even a question?" He laughed and gave me a what-the-fuck-look.

"But first..." I stopped in the middle of the room. "I think there's still something very important that you forgot."

He gave me a confused look but soon understood what I meant.

"Listen Caitlyn you know that what he-"

"Niall, please." I cut him off." It wasn't on purpose and it makes me feel bad to see you both like this. Please."

"Fine." He sighed.

"I'm gonna get my cardigan." I pointed at my room. He nodded and went down the stairs.

Niall's P.O.V.

I went down to see Harry, Liam, Louis and Zayn talking with each other. I kind of guessed what about. I cleared my throat and they all turned around. I looked in Harry's eyes and gave him a sign to come. He fortunately understood it and stood up, coming closer until we met in the hall.

"If it's about the fact that I hurt Caitlyn I told you already that I neither noticed nor meant it and I'm sorry." He said before I could get a word out of my mouth.

"No, I'm sorry." I went my hand through my hair. "I shouldn't have said all those mean things it's just that..."

"You love her Niall, I understand that you care." He gave me a sad smile. "Just forget about what we've said to each other, it won't bring us anything." He spread his arms and patted my back as we hugged each other.

As I turned around I saw Caitlyn standing next to the door with a huge smile as she almost jumped of happiness.

"Anybody wanna join us?" I asked as I walked towards her.

"Where to?" Zayn replied.


"Oh man not again."

"Why do we always have to go to Nando's?"

"I'm ordering a pizza."

"Well..." I cleared my throat. "If nobody wants to come, then... see you later guys!" I took my jacket, opened the door and gave Caitlyn a sign to go. She thanked and we both went out.

"Would you mind going for a walk? It's just a few blocks away." I said closing the door behind me.

"Not at all!" She smiled.

Caitlyn's P.O.V.

During the whole way to Nando's we talked all the time and got to know each other better. Even if I watched plenty of interviews about famous people's life, I learned many things about Niall that I would never expect. It was really nice to talk to somebody who would listen and care.

Niall's P.O.V.

As we began walking down the street I looked into her eyes and lightly touched her hand, asking for a permission to hold it. Instead of answering she grabbed mine and interlocked her fingers between mines, making a short eye contact. Her hand was so small comparing to mine and fit perfectly, as if it was made just for me.

Caitlyn's P.O.V.

As I grabbed Niall's hand I made a short eye contact with him. His hand was warm and way bigger than mine, what made me feel safe.

"You know..." He started after a moment. "You're not like all the other girls. I mean... There are the ones who won't stop screaming in my face, the ones who put tons of make-up and need two hours to take it off, the ones who want to be friends with me just because I'm famous, and..."

I looked at him and noticed a smile growing on his face.

"And there is you." He stopped in the middle of the pavement and taking both of my hands in his, looking into my eyes. "You're exceptional, you know? Nobody ever made me laugh as much as you do, in fact the whole time." He giggled what I did as well. "I've never met a girl with such a big and warm heart as yours that makes you care more about the others than about yourself. You don't go mad or get a hysterical seizure, like the most girls do, when your hair is messy or if you think that you don't look good even if you always do. Your eyes are the most exquisite eyes I've ever seen and I just can't stop looking at them. I'll never understand how somebody could dislike you, you're just breathtaking and amazing and that's why I wanted to ask you something." He said as my eyes started feeling with tears. "I know it's been only a couple of days, but..." He took a deep breath. "Caitlyn, would you make me the happiest guy in this world and be my girlfriend?"

I jumped in his arms what almost made him fall and squeezed him with my legs crossed behind his back.

"Well..." He breathed out as I still didn't let him go. "I'll take that as a yes." He laughed.

"But, erhm... Will you let go of me one day?" He asked chuckling.

"No!" I answered laughing. I didn't want to let go of him at all.

"Then I think I have no choice!"

"What do you NIALL LET ME DOWN!" I laughed out loud as he lifted me up, held my legs and let me watch his back.

"Hey, stop punching me!" He said as he continued walking.

"Then let me down! I don't think it's called a walk!" I stopped punching even though it wasn't hard at all but I didn't have strength anymore.

"I'll only let you down if you'll kiss me."

"What should I kiss? Your back?" I watched my long hair which almost touched the ground.

"No, I mean, I have nothing against but I'll let you down if you'll kiss me afterwards."

"I'll kiss you if you'll let me down."

"I'll let you down if you'll kiss me."

"I'll kiss you if you'll let me down."

"I'll let you down if you'll kiss me."

Even though he couldn't see it I crossed my arms and continued watching his back. Of course I wanted to kiss him, but I also wanted to stand on my feet.

"Niall why are you...?" Harry asked from the living room as Niall entered the house with me on his shoulder.

"She doesn't want to kiss me." He answered proudly but tried to be serious.

"He doesn't want to let me down." I let my arms fall.

"Aww, I smell love over here!" Liam teased.

"Repeat it and I'll spoon you." I looked up with my messy hair all over my face. Everybody laughed and I felt Niall go up the stairs.

"Where are you bringing me?" I asked tired of hanging.

"Let me surprise you."

"I don't like surprises I never know what's coming."

"That's why it's called a surprise." He giggled.

After what seemed like an eternity Niall stopped walking.

"So... You changed your mind?" He asked letting me stand on the ground. I put my hair in order and looked at him grinning, arms on my hips. I gently took his face in my hands and pressed my lips against his. I felt him smile through the kiss as his tongue touched my bottom lip, asking for entrance. I agreed and our tongues battled, exploring each other's mouths as I put my arms around his neck and he put his around my waist. Again, millions of butterflies and fireworks wouldn't leave my stomach.

"Ugh gross, get a room!" I heard Zayn's disgusted voice. We abruptly pulled away and looked at each other, then at Zayn and then again at each other, bursting in laughs.

"Come on." Niall opened the door and gave me a sign to go.

As I entered the 'for me until then mysterious room', I opened my mouth and looked around, speechless. Not only that room was big, but it was full of instruments and everything I would ever dream of. It was a studio. There were some acoustic guitars, some electric ones, a grand piano, percussion, some microphones and all the equipment needed.

"Here." Niall smiled handing me his guitar, the beige Taylor 814e. I carefully took it in my hands.

"It's wonderful." I said examining it and handed it back to him.

"No, I want you to play something."

"But I-"

"Please?" He made his puppy dog face.

"Fine." I sighed smiling. I just couldn't refuse to it.

I sat down on a chair and started playing 'California King Bed' by Rihanna.

"Chest to chest

Nose to nose

Palm to palm

We were always just that close

Wrist to wrist

Toe to toe

Lips that felt just like the inside of a rose

So, how come when I reach out my finger

It feels like more than distance between us

In this California king bed

We're ten thousand miles apart

I've been California wishing on these stars

For your heart for me

My California king

Eye to eye

Cheek to cheek

Side by side

You were sleeping next to me

Arm in arm

Dusk to dawn

With the curtains drawn

And a little last night on these sheets

So, how come when I reach out my fingers

It seems like more than distance between us

In this California king bed

We're ten thousand miles apart

I've been California wishing on these stars

For your heart for me

My California king

Just when I felt like giving up on us

You turned around and gave me one last touch

That made everything feel better

And even then my eyes got wetter

So confused wanna ask you if you love me

But I don't wanna seem so weak

Maybe I've been California dreaming

Yeah yeah yeah

In this California king bed

We're ten thousand miles apart

I've been California wishing on these stars

For your heart for me

My California king

My California king

In this California king bed

We're ten thousand miles apart

I've been California wishing on these stars

For your heart for me

My California king." I finished and looked at Niall who was smiling from ear to ear.

"Wow... Your voice is amazing." Niall said eyes wide open.

"It's not tha-"

"Yes it is." Louis cut me off.

"Did you-?" I asked noticing that the five of five were in the room. They all nodded.

"You're too kind." I blushed smiling and placed the guitar on its place.

"We're just telling the truth." Liam winked and opened the door, living the room with the others and left Niall and me alone. "Goodnight."

"Goodnight." Niall and me answered.

"I'm gonna take a shower and lay down, I guess you're tired too, aren't you?" Niall smiled as I yawned, covering my mouth with my hand.

"Very tired." I nodded.

"Let's go." He stood up, took my hand in his and we went on the third floor.

"Goodnight my princess." He gave me a soft kiss on my lips as we stood in front of our rooms.

"Goodnight my prince." I answered smiling.

"I love you." He whispered in my ear.

"I love you too." I whispered back and we both entered our rooms.

I closed the door behind me and turned the light on. I looked in the closet for something to sleep in and found a white, a bit oversized T-Shirt. I put it on and went to the bathroom to wash my teeth and comb my messy (guess why) hair. As I finished I turned all the lights off and laid down. Apart from my T-Shirt I only had a bra and my panties. I didn't care if they were red and visible through white, I was too tired to change them.

I heard Niall turn the shower on and later off. After a while everything went silent, though I couldn't get any sleep. I just kept thinking about all the things that happened today. Niall kissed me. I kissed back. Niall asked me to be his girlfriend. I agreed. He said he loves me. I said I love him.

I've been lying for a while and even though I knew I would see Niall the next day I sort of already missed him. I so stood up and as I saw nobody in the hall I left my room and knocked at his door.

"Niall?" I asked quietly as I opened the door not wanting to wake him up if was asleep.

"Hmm?" He answered with a bouncy voice as if he just laid down.

"Can I stay with you tonight? I can't fall asleep and-and" I stuttered at the end. "I miss you."

Without answering he lifted the quilt as I closed the door behind me.

"Thank you." I chuckled hopping in.

"You're always welcome here." He covered me and pulled me closer so I had my head and my right hand on his warm chest as he played with my hair until we fell asleep after a while. I've never felt better in someone's presence.
