I got back to the house and ran inside.

“Annabelle?” Harry called when he saw me leant up against the front door. I ran a hand through my hair and took a deep breath. “Are you ok?”

“Um, yeah I think so. I just, um, where’s Liam?” I said.

“I think he’s in your room.” He said.

“Right, thanks.” I nodded walking to our room. I opened the door and sure enough Liam was lying on his bed tapping away on his phone.

“Hey Annabelle! What’s wrong?” He asked his face falling when he saw something was wrong.

“I think I have a problem.” I said crashing down on my bed and sighing. Liam walked over and sat on the edge of my bed. I sat up crossing my legs. “Niall and I kissed.” His eyes widened a little but then he…..smirked?

“So, wait why is this a problem?” I sighed and threw my hands down on the bed.

“Because I’m not meant to fall for anyone, ever. Not just you boys but anyone. I realized that a long time ago. It’s just not meant to happen.”

“Why do you think that?”

“Because every time I do, I’m never good enough, I always get my heart broken. If that happens every time I’m just not meant to fall in love it’s just not worth it.”

“Anna. That’s not true. Niall’s not like that. Who’s hurt you before?”

“My ex Jordan. We met when I was fourteen and he was sixteen. We dated for a year and he knew how fragile I was. He knew everything about my brother he knew all the reasons I don’t let my guard down and yet he cheated on me and he treated me like crap and from then on I decided that love just wasn’t worth it if I was going to get hurt. It wasn’t worth getting my heart broken.”

“Oh Annie, Niall is not like that. He would never do that to you.” I sighed then I heard the front door close. I groaned. “Talk to him. It’ll be worth it.” Liam said patting my knee. I gave him a weak smile and he kissed my cheek and left the room so Niall and I could talk. Niall walked in and sat down.

“Anna I am so sorry! I don’t kno-“ He started.

“It’s ok Niall. It’s not your fault. I ran because, I think I’m falling for you and I don’t think I’m meant to fall in love.” I cut him off. His face still looks confused, so I tell him about Jordan.

“Annie, I’d never do that to you, none of us would. Just because that asshole couldn’t see how amazing you are doesn’t mean you don’t deserve love. If anyone does, it’s you.” He took my hand and no matter how hard I tried I couldn’t help but smile. “I know it’s hard to let your guard down, I really do. But if you let your guard down, just a little, we will not let anyone hurt you. I promise. You just have to trust us.” I sighed and looked up from our hands to be greeted by Niall’s bright crystal eyes. Damn him! How is it that every time I see his eyes I can’t help but get lost in them. I sighed again. “Ok.” I said with a small smile. “I’ll try.” He grinned and pulled me into a hug. I giggled and smiled. We pulled apart and once again I got lost in his eyes and we slowly leaned in. Before I knew it, we were kissing. It was a small kiss but once again, it left me with mad butterflies. He smiled like an idiot and I’m pretty sure my face looked the same way. He grabbed my hadn and we walked to the living room. “Lou! You won our bet!” I said as I plopped on the couch next to Niall, but he pulled me onto his lap and wrapped his arms around my waist. “OH YEAH!” Louis yelled.

“But, I didn’t fall for you!” I said pointing my finger at him and sticking my tongue out when he fake cried. “SO are you two together now?” Liam asked sitting next to us. Niall just smiled and kissed me. “AHHH MY EYES!” Louis yelled. Niall and I pulled apart to see Louis hiding behind Harry’s shoulder. Niall chuckled and I rolled my eyes. Just then, My phone rang and it was a number I didn’t recognize but I answered.

“Hello?” I said.

“Hi is this Annabelle James?” A female voice said on the other end.


“Hi I’m Jane Dawson from channel three. I’d like to set up an interview for tomorrow at eleven. Is that ok?”

“Oh hi! Yes of cource that would be great! I’ll see you then.” We hung up and the boys looked at me.

“I have an interview tomorrow at eleven.”I said still not quite believing it but smiling. The boys beamed at me.
