They Don't Know About Us

Hi, my name is Scarlett. I'm writing an article for a magazine. The topic is high school stories. A flashback into the past is exactly what I need for this article. So I called in a few friends to help me explain everything. It's like a story book, coming to life.
I was a shy junior, who moved schools, so many times because of getting bullied. It's my first day of school, & I've already made new friends...Harry, Louis, Liam, & Niall. This year will change more to find out how.
(Present time to past time)


21. Present Time: Christmas

Time has flown by & the guys are on break from tour. My article was a huge hit in the article. They are actually having me go on tour with them to report on all the things that know the truth about any situation. People are relying on me to be honest with anything, and the guys allow me to write about their personal lives, as long as I don't give too much away & its honest.

It's Christmas Eve & the guys went on dates with their girlfriends. Niall & I stayed behind to enjoy some hot chocolate by the warm fire place.

Niall: this feels familiar.

Scarlett: haha yeah, that's because this was how we spent our first Christmas together.

Niall smiled at me; he had a spark in his eyes that I only saw a few weeks into us dating.

Scarlett: you have a spark in your eyes *gently smiling; holding my hot chocolate*

Niall: that only happens with you & my family.

Scarlett: and why's that?

Niall: it's because I love you so much that I've always hoped that you'd become family, some day.

He grabbed my hands & looked straight into my eyes. I smiled at him; I do believe I also had a spark in my eyes in my eyes. He was & is my first & only love. I would marry him whenever he asked. He stood up from the couch & walked in front of me. He reached for my hand, I stood up, & followed him to wherever he was walking. He brought me upstairs to my bedroom(I moved in with him a few weeks ago). I looked on my bed, which had an outfit on it. I was confused as to why there was an outfit on my bed; I looked at him, confused.

Niall: please get dressed & come downstairs when you're ready.

I smiled & nodded. He left the room & I closed the door. I walked over to my bed & admired the clothes. It was a single knee-high black dress, that flowed very nicely at the end of it. A green infinity scarf, green & silver dangly earrings with a pair of silver studs for my second ear piercings, green & silver bracelets, & a pair of black heels.

I get dressed, brush my hair & my teeth, along with shave my legs & under my arms. I grab my phone & my small black purse. I walk downstairs to see Niall standing at the bottom of the stairs with a smile of his face. I smile at him & noticed that he changed his clothes as well. He was wearing a green button-up shirt, black dress pants, black dress shoes, & a black fancy jacket.

Niall: you look beautiful, my love.

Scarlett: you look very handsome yourself.

Niall takes my hand as I walk down the stairs, he brings me to the living room, and hands me a new black jacket.

Scarlett: what's this?

I look up a him with a confused, but excited look.

Niall: well, I saw you looking at it in the mall a few weeks ago, so I went back & bought it for you. An "interview jacket" for my little interviewer. *smiles*

I kiss him on the cheek & smile at him...I didn't know what was going on, but he was planning something. He helps me put on the jacket, then we headed out the door. He opened the car door for me, as I carefully got in the car. He ran around the front of the car, & jumped in the car.

We were both shivering from the cold, so Niall turned on the heater. "Hey Brown Eyes" by Hemā Jr. came on the radio, & I saw Niall flinch. I grab him hand, with relaxed him, we listened to it, & then Niall started to sing along. I loved his voice, I really did. I joined in, not long after that. We finished the song as we were pulling up to our destination, I think. Niall looked at me with passionate eyes, & softly kisses me on the lips; he pulled away with a smile on his face.

Niall: I love you Scarlett, please don't ever forget that.

Scarlett: I love you too Niall...& I never will.

He smiled then got out of car; he opened my door & grabbed my hand, helping me out. I saw Christmas lights everywhere; Niall intertwined our fingers & we started walking. We talked for a bit, about anything & everything. Then Niall came to a stop.

Niall: let's go on a carriage ride

I agreed, of course. As we were walking towards the carriage...I kept thinking I heard the guys, but then I remembered that they were all on dates, so I just shrugged it off. We got to the carriage & sat down. There was sparkling water in a box next to the seat.

Niall: would you like some, my lady?

Scarlett: absolutely my kind sir.

He poured us both a glass of sparkling water. We talked for what seemed like seconds, but Niall looked at his phone & saw it was 9:37; it's been a half an hour since we got on this carriage ride.

Scarlett: Niall, I'm getting pretty cold. *rubbed my arms*

Niall: alright love, let's get somewhere warm.

We thank the carriage driver & started walking towards the car. On our way to the car, we saw a crowd of people surrounding someone that was singing. Niall & I made our way to the front of the crowd & saw Zayn, Louis, Liam, & Harry singing "Don't Let Me Go". The song ended & Zayn spoke.

Zayn: Niall, I know I haven't been around, and I'm really sorry for that. Scarlett, I've heard so much about you from the other mates...about how happy you make Niall...thank you. This next song, Niall requested, just for you. Hope you enjoy it.

They start singing, and at first I didn't recognize the song, but then I thought back to the morning that the guys were coming back to meet me for the article. I've heard this song before, wait...Niall requested it. Oh my gosh, is this happening? I looked around & couldn't find Niall. I looked back at the boys & saw Niall coming towards me with a mic in his hand.

(Bold words= Niall singing)

(Slanted words= everyone singing together)

(regular words= everyone without Niall)

A hundred and five is the number that comes to my head

When I think of all the years I wanna be with you

Wake up every morning with you in my bed

That's precisely what I plan to do

And you know one of these days when I get my money right

Buy you everything and show you all the finer things in life

We'll forever be in love, so there ain't no need to rush

But one day I won't be able to ask you loud enough

I'll say, "Will you marry me?"

I swear that I will mean it

I'll say, "Will you marry me?"


Ooh whoa ooh oh

Ooh whoa ooh oh

Ooh whoa ooh oh

Oh, yeah

How many girls in the world can make me feel like this?

Baby I don't ever plan to find out

The more I look, the more I find the reasons why

You're the love of my life

You know one of these days when I get my money right

Buy you everything and show you all the finer things in life

We'll forever be in love, so there ain't no need to rush

But one day I won't be able to ask you loud enough

I'll say, "Will you marry me?"

I swear that I will mean it

I'll say, "Will you marry me?"

And if I lost everything

In my heart it means nothing

'Cause I have you,

Girl, I have you

To get right down on bended knee

Nothing else would ever be better, better

That day when...

Niall got down on one knee.

I'll say, "Will you marry me?"

I swear that I will mean it

I'll say, "Will you marry me?"

I'll say, "Will you marry me?"

(I'll get down on one knee)

I swear that I will mean it

I'll say, "Will you marry me?"

Got me singing

Ooh whoa ooh oh

Got me singing

Ooh whoa ooh oh

Would you marry me, baby?

The song faded out, as I looked down at Niall; he was on one knee. 

Niall: Scarlett, when we parted our ways, I missed you so much. I missed everything about you, and that's why I couldn't come after you. I knew that you'd give up everything for me...and I couldn't let you. We tried to start a family together, but that didn't go as planned. I feel like that was a sign, telling us to wait and try again...the right way. This is me starting over. Scarlett...will you please do me the honor of becoming my one and wife?

I was speechless...I didn't know what to say...I was smiling and on the edge of tears. I couldn't speak, so I nodded my head slowing and whispered the word, "yes."

His face brightened as he jumped up from his knee and spun me around. I smiled at him as I whipped my tears away. We kissed as everyone cheered. Niall placed me down on the floor, and we just smiled at each other.

Niall: you're finally mine *whispered*

Scarlett: I always was. *whispered*

He kissed me once more as the cheering stopped. I looked around and saw my parents, the boys, my friends from my home school, and so many other people. I smiled at Niall once more...but then everything became dizzy I started to fall, and I heard people screaming. One voice stood out to me..

Niall: I love you Scarlett...please don't leave me my love.

Then, everything went black...
