Hey, loves!

So, I'm dedicating this to the lovely girls of directioners4lifexo (Nikki and Gianna) because part of this chapter was inspired by an idea one of them gave me! The problem is, I don't know which girl suggested the idea to me, so I'm just going to thank them both! Thank you Nikki and Gianna! :)

Also, Kiall won in voting, so that will remain their couple name! Sorry, Ayana!

Chapter 25

“I’m sorry you had to bring me back here. You can go back to the club,” I said to Niall as he set me down on the bed.

He shook his head and laughed as he took my heels off my feet for me. “Don’t be silly, Red. I just want to be here with you.”

I smiled and laid my head on the pillow. “Thank you.”

“For what?”

“Saving me tonight. I should have walked away sooner, I just thought he would leave me alone.”

He patted my leg, shaking his head. “Shh, it’s okay. It’s not your fault, babe. Not at all. I shouldn’t have left you alone, it was stupid especially since I told you not to leave my side. I’m sorry.”

“It’s not your fault either. Let’s just be glad you saw me in time, okay?”

He nodded then looked at my foot. He crinkled his forehead then lifted my foot up a little and inspected it. “Is your foot… blue?”

“Oh, I uh, kinda stomped on the guy’s foot. He was wearing steel toed boots. It’s probably bruised.”

He rubbed my foot and I laughed, reminding him how ticklish I was. A devilish smirk lit up his face and he jumped on me, tickling my ribcage. I tried to squirm away, but in the end I just rolled around laughing. He stopped tickling me and just sat on top of me, pinning my hands to my chest.

“I’m sorry your birthday kinda went downhill,” he said, switching his hold on my hands to his right hand so he could brush my bangs out of my face with his left.

I shrugged. “I got to spend it with you, that’s all I care about.”

He smiled down at me. “You’re so sweet.” He leaned in and kissed me.

I smiled back at him. “Only to you. Now, if you’re through with your tickle fest, can you get off of me? My dress is now almost above my bum.”

He laughed and flopped over onto his back. I wiggled my dress back down to where it was supposed to be, covering the dance shorts I had slipped on under it.

“Good now?” Niall looked over at me, smirking as always.

I nodded, then let out a huge yawn.

Niall chuckled. “You should go to sleep, Red. I’ll find you some pajamas.”

I grabbed his arm, pulling him back down when he tried to get up. “Don’t do that. I don’t feel like getting up, so I’ll just sleep in this.”

Niall shook his head. “No, come on, you need proper pajamas.”

I sighed and sat up while he went over to our suitcases and grabbed what he knew I would ask for: his Ireland hoodie and my shamrock shorts. Don’t judge; I had them before I ever met Niall. He handed me the clothes then just stood there.

I started to tug my arm out of the sleeve of my dress, causing Niall to raise his brow. I raised mine right back at him. “If you don’t want to see me change then turn around because I’m not getting up and leaving the room.”
