I woke up feeling better today, happier. I knew that Niall as going to be in school today which made me feel more safe about going to school. I am sick of the constant fear of someone trying to kill me every time I am by myself but then I realised I never was by myself. Niall was always there.
"Bailey, do you want some food?" Louis shouted from downstairs.
"No thanks! I will get something from school!" I shouted back. I quickly tied my hair up into a pony tail, put on a baggy jumper, leggings and a pair of ugg boots. I applied a few coats of mascara to my lashes. Concealer to my dark under eye circles and a sheer pink lip gloss to my lips. I grabbed my bag and ran down the stairs scared that I would be late. "Bye guys!" I shouted to the boys as I made my way to the door.
"Bailey wait!" Louis said as he grabbed my arm forcing me to turn around in fright.
"For god's sake Louis quit it with the vampire stuff" I gasped.
"Sorry, force of habit" he smirked.
"What did you want?" I asked. "I'm going to be late for school"
"I doubt that.." he said, I looked at him confused waiting for him to explain. "Niall is taking you.."
"What?" I asked even more confused now.
"I asked him to, I may not like him Bailey but he cares about you and you are top on my priority list. Its awkward for me and the boys to protect you while you are in school so I asked Niall to.." he explained.
"You of all people asked Niall to protect me?" I asked with my eyebrows raised.
"I know you like him and he cares about you. I care about you more than anything. Now go, before I change my mind" he smiled. I smiled at him before I left the house shutting the door behind me. I turned around to see Niall's smiling face in front of me. I gasped.
"I wish people would stop doing that" I laughed.
"It's fun" he smirked.
"You are driving?" I asked as I looked over to his black range rover.
"Yup, doubt you would be able to keep up with me if we walked" he winked. I just shook my head and walked over to the car. It was lucky Binky was meeting me at school today, she would have gotten a surprise if I pulled up in a mini cooper with a boy that had been missing for two weeks. I jumped in the passenger seat as Niall jumped into the drivers.
"You know we could just skip school" Niall muttered.
"Nope, we are going to school" I told him.
"School is such a waste of time, I have learnt this stuff over and over again and you are going to live forever who needs school?" he muttered.
"We are going, it's the only place where I can feel relatively normal" I sighed.
"Alright then as long as I can show you something after school" he smirked.
"It's not anything dirty is it?" I asked with my eyebrow raised.
"Nope, it's something I am sure you will enjoy just as much" he smiled.
"Oh good" I smiled back. It only took a couple more minutes and we parked up in the school car park. "Have you never rode this to school before, everyone is staring at the car" I noted shifting uncomfortably.
"I don't think they are staring at the car, I think they are staring at the people in it" he muttered. Great. Just great.
"Nia-" I was interrupted by the slamming of the door. Thank you for that Niall, I thought to myself. I turned round to see him standing at the door, he opened it for me to jump out. Such a gentleman. I felt Niall's arm wrap around me protectively and he pulled me close to him. "Why is everyone staring?" I asked looking up at him.
"I guess they are just jealous" he smirked.
"Of me or you?" I giggled.
"Both" he simply said. "Just ignore them" he said against my hair and then kissed the top of my head. A slight blush formed on my cheeks. We began to walk into the school. Niall's arm wrapped around me as he held me close to him. I could hear people whispering, people looked at us like they had never seen a couple before in their lives. Wait... did I just call me and Niall a couple? We weren't a couple. Where we? What even are we? I was snapped out of my thoughts when we reached my locker. I grabbed my keys out my bag and unlocked it, the jangling of my keys being the loudest thing in the whole corridor of people.
"This is so awkward" I whispered to Niall who was now leaning against the locker next to me, his hands in the pockets of his dark wash jeans.
"It will blow over soon" he whispered back.
"I hope so, I don't really like being the centre of attention" I sighed.
"You're the centre of attention of every vampires mind" he laughed trying to break the tension.
I stared at him. "Not funny Niall"
"Come on, I was joking" he smirked.
"I know I'm just still getting used to the idea" I sighed.
"I'm sorry" he apologised.
"I know, I'm going to have to go to my class now" I sighed yet again.
"I'll try and be around, don't worry. If anything happens just scream I will hear you" he told me. I nodded and walked to my first class of the day. As I walked I could still feel the stares of people burning into me. I began walking faster before I finally arrived at my class and quickly sat in my seat. I turned to see Binky sat staring at me.
"You have some explaining to do"
