A while later Lydia woke up, and told me she was going to the bathroom. Right as she got up, the lights flickered and went out. She let out a scream.
“What’s going on!?” she shrieked
“Hey, calm down! It’s fine.” Niall told her reasurring her.
“Um, I don’t know about you but It’s the middle of the night. We are on a train. And the lights are out. It’s pitch black. I. do . not. Like. It.” She said stating every single word.
“Lydia, it’s fine just come follow my voice and sit down.” I told her, worry seeping into my voice.
All of a sudden I felt a hand grab mine, I looked at Niall with the little light we had. He looked back at me with a shy smile on his face.
“everything is going to be okay.” He told me. And I trusted him. Why did this international superstar make me feel so safe and secure?
“Okay.” I whispered, as Lydia found her way back to her seat. Niall and I sat there in silence for a while, just his hand in mine made me feel stronger, safer, and making me forget my past.
“Now, we are deffentily going to miss out flight back to Minnesota.” She huffed ruining the moment. As she slumped into her seat.
“If you want, you can ride the same airplane as me. We definitely have enough seats to spare.” Niall said, leaning over talking to me and Lydia. “Meg told me that you two were going back to Minnesota, and it just so happens that I am too.” He said, this time directly to Lydia.
“That’d be amazing!” I said, loving that he wanted me and Lydia on his plane, believeing that he really did want to spend some more time with me once we get off this train. And I did too.
“Not to be rude or anything,” She started, “But if we miss out flight, won’t you too?” she asked him proving a point that I didn’t think about.
“Nope!” he said, and I could barely see a grin on his face. “I have a private plan, that won’t leave without me. Besides, my friends will probably be late anyways.” He leaned back into his seat, and I put my head on his shoulder.
Just that little movement is something that I didn’t do with every guy I met. When I dated Brandon, I never felt safe. I felt like he was just wanting me to do stuff with, not that he wasn’t a great kisser, but there wasn’t any feelings coming from him. When I dated Jeff, he was quite and shy and didn’t even try to make a move for 3 weeks, and by the time he did I had moved on. When I dated Nate, he was all over me. He was fun to be with and hang out, but it was more like friends with bennifits than anything. And then there was Nick. Nick. I didn’t want to think about him. When I dated him, when he kissed me, how he felt. He could be violent. I had seen that side of him, and I was forever paying for it.
I don’t know why Niall made me feel this way, but I liked it. Maybe it was his eyes. They were a bright sparkly blue, but at the same time they were as deep as the ocean. Or maybe it was his voice. It sounded like soft fabric after it comes out of the dryer. Or maybe it was his laugh. His laugh was contagious, when he laughed I couldn’t help but join in. I never believed in fate, but only one thing could describe the way I felt for him. And that one thing was Fate.
I don’t know how long Niall and I sat there for, but I did happen to fall asleep. I was quickly awoken by the bright lights of the train flickering back on. I quickly picked my head off of his shoulder, and looked away feeling embarrassed.
“ladies and gentleman” announced a male over the overcom “I would like to apologize for the delay that we have caused. Just to let you know, we will are getting back on our way and we will be at the station in an hour. Thank You”
“finally!” Lydia yelled, “I thougt that I’d be sitting in the dark for forever!” she turned to me, “You seemed to be fine with it.” She added, accusing me of something.
“well, I fell asleep.” I told her. What was her problem? She didn’t seem to like Niall for some reason. She narrowed her eyes at him, and turned back to the window. She was this way. I’ve known her for a year, and she is my best friend in the world. Pretty much my only friend. I met her my freshman year of college, and we clicked. But I soon learned that if she didn’t have anything her way, she was done. She was my roommate, so I had to be careful with what I said, who I brought back to our room and I quickly learned that she didn’t want me to have other friends. It was like tip-toeing around a bomb. You knew what would set it off, so you had to stay away from that. For Lydia, if I had other friends, if I didn’t want to hang out, if I didn’t go to the gym with her, anything when I wasn’t with her made the bomb explode. The one thing that really pissed her off was when I tried to use my music skills. I had been playing the Piano since 2nd grade, and guitar since 7th grade. Music was my life, it was my passion and she hated it. She hated when I sang, when I played guitar, when I snuck into my church to play the grand piano. She didn’t let me follow my passion. Don’t get me wrong, she loved music but music was ‘her thing’ and God forbid me trying to be liker her.
Niall leaned over and put his lips to my ear. “What’s her problem?” he whispered.
I shrugged and leaned back over to him and put my head on his shoulder, as he wrapped his arms around me. Once again, I didn’t know why I felt this way about him, and it was obvious he felt the same way. Only one word could describe it, and that was fate.
AN: Thats it for a while. My goal will be to update once a week, but I'm pretty busy on the weekends, and don't even ask about the week, with Volleyball, School, Show Choir, piano, and voice lessons its out of the question! But thanks for reading this far! Mwahh! :)
