I rolled over to check the clock for about the 50th time tonight. 4:15 AM read the clock, I groaned and buried my face in my pillow. I felt so tiny in the king sized bed I shared with my boyfriend Niall who was yet again absent even though he was on a break from work. This again was the same situation but just on a different night.
I knew exactly where he was too: out with his hometown friends drinking at the local pub down the street. Every night Niall tried to get me to go with him, but I declined each time. He did it to make sure I didn't feel left out of the fun, not that it mattered I'd rather stay home anyway. Ever since he came home from tour, I only got a few nights where we could be alone with not distractions.
I was fully awake now staring up at the dark ceiling wondering when exactly Niall was coming home. It wasn't always like this either and I had always wondered if the pressure he was under by his fans for being in this relationship was starting to get to him. Sure, I had my fair share of hate in the beginning but it quickly died down and the fans gladly excepted me. But with Niall it's different, they're always watching his every move; especially if it has to do with this relationship.
Breaking me from my thoughts, I heard the front door unlock and faintly Niall's giggles. I quickly checked the clock and it just had hit 4:30, unbelievable. Pushing myself from the bed, I went to confront Niall. This was the straw that broke the camel's back.
"Oh hey babe," Niall slurred. I could smell the alcohol on his breath which made me more furious than I already was.
"Don't 'hey babe' me. Why in the heck were you out until 4:30 in the morning? What happened to actually hanging out with your girlfriend for once.?"
"Oh come on, don't start with this crap again," he said tugging on my hand trying to lead me back to bed. "Let's go to bed babe." He flashed me a lustful smirk and that's when I pulled my hand out of his.
"Niall you're unbelievable. It seems like you'll never change," I began to cry. Pushing past him, I rushed towards our room and grabbed a few clothes out of my drawers and put them in an overnight bag. When I turned back a around, Niall was standing in the door frame trying to keep his balance.
"So what, is this it? Are we over just because I stayed out late and had a little fun with the boys?"
"First of all, no I'm not breaking up with you. At least not yet. I'm going to stay over at Kristine's tonight. You need to start changing your ways Niall or you just might lose me."
And with that I pushed past Niall again and headed over to my best friend Kristine's house hoping she wouldn't be too mad that I was showing up at close to 5 in the morning.
I slowly opened my eyes and rolled on my to check the clock on the side table. 2:05 PM. My head was pounding and I could barely think straight. What happened last night and where exactly was Rose? All I know is something is defiantly not right around here.
I pushed myself out of bed and tried to think about what happened last night. "Rose? Rose! Where the heck is she," I yelled. Panic started to set it. What if i did something incredibly stupid last night and she left me . Oh god, that's probably it. My head began to throb again as I tried to think about last night's events.
I sat back down on the bed for about a half an hour and finally got all the pieces of the story together. Rose probably hates me and I'm most likely one of the worst boyfriends of all time. I can't believe I put partying above someone I love more than everything.
That's when I got the best idea ever. Maybe I haven't been telling Rose that I love her enough. I quickly took a shower and cleaned myself before heading over to Rose's best friend's place. This is probably my last chance to prove to Rose that I love her more than anything.
I sat on Kristine's couch holding a warm cup of tea while wrapped up in a cozy blanket trying to get my mind off of Niall. Kristine sat down beside me and began to rub my back, consoling me during this difficult situation. I needed to think about where Niall and I should go with this relationship. All of this drinking and consent hanging out with friends is starting to get annoying very quickly.
"I'm sure you'll know what to do. You always do," Kristine tired to ensure me.
"I know, I know. But this is different. This is Niall we're talking about, he means a lot more to me than most things do. I just don't know what to do."
"You'll do what you think is right, I know you will," Kristine sighed and got up from her place on the couch. "I'm gonna go start lunch. You hungry?"
"Not really but thanks anyways," I replied turning my attention back to some random show that I wasn't really watching anyway. About 15 minutes later the doorbell rang, I sighed, got up and called out to Kristine, "I'll get it. Just worry about your food."
I opened the door not expecting what I saw next. It was Niall with his guitar in hand and tears beginning to form in his eyes. I wanted to say something to him but I couldn't find the right words to say.
"Rose, I am so sorry. I don't know if you'll ever be able to forgive me but I just want you to know that even if you break up with me, you'll always be in my heart," He said trying to fight the urge to cry. By this time I was bawling my eyes out and Niall began to play You and Me by Life. I stood there through the whole song crying and reminiscing about all the wonderful memories in our relationship. Then I knew my answer, I couldn't leave Niall. We needed each other, sure we were going to have our flaws but we needed to get through them as a couple.
The song ended and Niall looked at me with tears running down his cheeks and his blue eyes pricing into me. "I know you probably hate me but I just need you to know I love you to the moon and back. You mean more to me than life itself, Rose. I just wanted to you to know that." He began to walk away but I quickly grabbed him and pulled him into me.
My lips crashed against his, Niall slowly kissed me back obviously being taken back by the kiss. Between all the other kisses we've shared this one was by far the best one. It was so passionate and had so much feeling to it. All of our feelings poured into one kiss made it the best of it's kind.
"Hey you two lovebirds! Take it to the bedroom, jeez," Kristine yelled from the kitchen obviously seeing the whole thing. I just rolled my eyes.
"Niall James Horan, I love you so much I can't even begin to put it into words. You don't have to worry cause you're not going anywhere," I said with a smirk on my face.
"Good because from now on it's gonna be just you and me, babe. I promise."
I hoped you guys like it!! more one shots to come, I promise!!
XOXO steph :D
