I don't know what came over me. When I saw that vampire near her something in me just snapped. The vampire was a smart one, not fully overwhelmed by her scent, he had blocked any communications out meaning I couldn't hear him which was a smart move because none of us would have seen him coming. As soon as I seen him attack her I went over there and snapped his neck without thinking twice about it.
I looked down at her, she had her arms wrapped around her legs and I could just make out that she was shaking. I had this overwhelming feeling to just hug her and tell her everything was ok but I couldn't because I didn't know whether everything would be ok.
She looked up at me, her face was illuminated by the moon it was the only source of light in the dark alleyway. In her eyes I saw fear for the first time, she had been bottling all of this up for so long that I knew it would all come crashing down.
"Niall?" she whispered. She had a confused look on her face.
"Come on, we need to get you home before something else happens." I said sternly as I began to walk away. This pained me to say, I hated not being able to talk to her but I knew it was for the best. I would watch from a distance and when she needed me I would be there it was better this way, safer this way.
"That's it? That's all you are going to say"' she asked standing up slowly. "We kiss and suddenly you disappear for two weeks, turn up out of the blue, snap a vampires neck and then tell me to go home?" she asked again.
"Come on" I repeated.
"I'm not leaving until you tell me why you left, why did you leave? Was it me? What did I do to make you suddenly not want to be near me anymore?"
"You really think I don't want to be around you?" I asked quietly. I turned round to face her.
"Can you blame me? We kissed and then you suddenly left. How do you expect me to feel?"
"I never left. I've been watching over you every minute of every day for two weeks"
"Why"' she asked simply.
"I wish I could explain to you why, but I can't. Because I don't even know the answer myself." I finally admitted.
"Why did you stay away?" she asked again. Pain now evident in her eyes.
"Because I don't want to put you in anymore danger then you are already in. I thought everything that your brother said that day would make you look at me differently. I'm not a good person Bailey" She looked at me confused. "I have a very short temper and I couldn't deal with hurting you Bailey, I just thought that if I stayed away and watch from a distance then I could make sure that you were safe without putting you at any more risk"
"Niall-" she began but I cut her off.
"Just come on, your brother will be worried." I said quickly as I began to walk again. I felt her run behind me and grab my hand forcing me to turn around and face her.
"Stop blocking me out Niall!" she shouted.
"Bailey-" I began but this time she cut me off.
"Have you ever thought that maybe I need you? Did you ever stop to think what I think is best for me? Couldn't you have at least asked?" she asked her voice cracking.
"I was doing what I thought was best"
"I have spent two weeks wondering what I did wrong to make you leave. I thought you had left town, I had to ask Louis to see if you were even still alive Niall!"
"I didn't mean to make you feel like that" I whispered.
"Please don't leave again" she asked. Looking deep into my eyes.
"I won't" I sighed admitting defeat knowing that she would win this argument. She smiled at me.
"So you really watched me for all that time? What where you doing?" she asked a light smile on her face.
"I just made sure that you were safe, killed a few vampires, listened into a few of your conversations" I smirked.
"I guess having vampires around me I'm never going to get much privacy any more" she giggled. Her laugh was cute.
"I'm sorry for everything, I didn't mean for you to blame yourself"
"It's over now, don't worry about it" she smiled. "Thank you, for watching over me. I would be dead now if it wasn't for you. I need to ask you something though.." she began.
"Go on.." I replied.
"Why did you kill Louis' friend when he first moved to town?" she asked her eyes not meeting mine when she asked.
"You know about that?" I asked. Shit. She's never going to forgive me for this. "Because your father killed my brother. I wanted revenge of some sort" I sighed.
"Oh" she simply replied.
"I'm sorry" we both said at the same time.
"Let's just forget about that now yeah? It's in the past we need to move on" she stated.
Before I knew it we arrived outside her house, my communication was blocked so there was no way that Louis could hear us from outside.
"Thank you for saving me Niall" she smiled.
"My pleasure" I smiled back.
"I'll see you tomorrow?" she asked hopefully. I nodded in response. She began to walk towards the door when I quickly ran behind her, twisted her around and kissed her. I don't know what came over me I just had this overwhelming need to. Her lips moved perfectly in sync with mine, her hands began to run through my Blonde Hair as my arms wrapped around her waist and I pulled her closer to me. She pulled away breathing deeply and looked deep into my eyes.
"That's why I had to make sure that you are safe, because of the feeling I get when I am with you."
