Chapter 11- Those Ocean Blue Eyes

We laid out on the ground and tried to fall asleep. A breeze blew by, I started shaking a little. It’s actually pretty cold out right now, it wasn’t smart of me to not bring a jacket. Another breeze blew by, I sat up and started shivering. I grabbed my arms, trying to warm myself up a bit. I heard Niall sit up behind me. I turned around, he had a jacket on, that lucky bastard. “Are you ok?” he asked. “Yeah, I’m fine” I said. I turned back around, my hands started to get cold now, I blew into them, but no luck. Suddenly, I felt something being wrapped around me. I looked down and saw Niall’s jacket around me. I felt Niall’s hands on my arms, he slowly moved them up and down my arms, it sent a chill down my spine. “Better?” he asked. I turned around and faced him, his eyes were shining in the moonlight. His eyes looked as blue and calm as the ocean on a cold, winter’s night. “A little” I said. “Well, you have to button it up silly” he said. He started buttoning up the jacket. “You’re still gonna feel cold if you don’t button up” he said. When he finished, he looked up into my eyes, I felt a connection between us. I felt a huge sense of attraction toward him, I smiled. “What’s wrong?” I asked, just noticing the fact he was staring. “Nothing…it’s just that…you look really pretty under the moonlight” he said. I felt myself start to blush. “Thanks” I said. I looked down, feeling a little embarrassed. My hair slid in front of my face. Niall stuck his hand out and lifted my head up. He moved my hair behind my ear and left his hand on my cheek. We just stared for a while, until I felt something on my back. It felt like something was pushing me toward him. He looked like he was getting a little nervous. “What are you doing?” he asked. “I don’t know, something’s pushing on me” I said. I turned around, but there was nothing there. “What the…ok, that’s a little creepy” I said. “Well, ignore it. Um, you can wear that the rest of the night if you need to” he said. “What about you?” I asked. “I’ll be fine, now get some rest…I’ll see you in the morning” he said. He laid down and soon enough was asleep. I laid my head down on the ground. Before I fell asleep, I heard Anna’s voice again. “You’re starting to realize your place in his life. From now on, you must think of him not just as my brother, but as something else” she said. After I heard that, I fell asleep. I woke up the next morning by something shaking me. “Rae, Rae” Niall said. I opened my eyes and saw him hovered over me. “Come on, let’s continue, there’s no time to lose” he said. I slowly lifted myself off the ground and gathered my things. We continued walking and 5 hours later, we arrived at our hotel. Niall had a long agruement with the man behind the counter about us arriving late. Luckily, in the end, we were able to work things out and keep the room for a few days until we found our guy. We got upstairs to our room, it was a penthouse suite, I guess that’s a benefit of traveling around with a superstar. I put all my belongings away and finally got a second to sit down and relax. “Oh…my…God” I said. “This whole month isn’t going to well for me is it?” he asked. I laughed, he sighed and continued going through his bags. Suddenly, he pulled a photo out of his bag. I saw him look at it, and he just froze. “Um, Niall? You ok? What’s that a picture of?” I asked. I looked over his shoulder and looked at the picture. It was a picture of him holding Anna up on his shoulders, smiling as brightly as they could. All I could do at that moment was wrap Niall in a hug.
