"Is there a problem here?" And there we were in the presence of five good looking dudes.

They hadn't changed. Well, I mean, it had only been two days but for some unknown reason in thought something would have been different. They were still the same boys that I had met that day outside the bus.

"Yes! Tell this very large man to put me down!" I said while I was still slung over his shoulder.

"It's okay Frank." I heard Liam say. A few seconds later I was place back only feet. I quickly smoothed out my shirt and adjusted my self. "You still haven't gotten any better at insults." I laughed at his truth.

"Cassie you can let go of his leg now." I informed her when I became away that she was still latched on to it. She quickly removed her self from Franks leg and apologized

"Why don't you guys come in?" Zayn asked and they all stepped to the side to allow us in. Before the door shut, I stuck my tongue out at Frank. Mature, I know.

"First you sneak on our tour bus and now our concert, you shouldn't make a habit out of this Zoella." I eyed Louis warning him. He gave me a hug in return and I responded quickly. I had missed him, I has missed all of them. "We missed you Zoey."

"So what's life like being back home?" Harry asked making small talk to cover the awkwardness in the room.

"Good, I've been so busy, hanging with my friends and stuff." I acted cool.

"She's layed in her bed the past two days on Netflix." God, Cassie just loved to expose how lame my life is. Everyone laughed.

"So, how bout we just get this elephant out of the room so we can all move on with our life's." Louis clapped his hands together and I watched as Niall gave him a look. I gave them both a questioning look. "Zoey, even though Niall was hurt by all of this , he really misses you. Niall, she doesn't love Harry because she loves you. Anyone with eyes can see that. Now let just kiss and make up and move on."

"Lou, I think they need to do that alone. Why don't we all go bug Frank." Harry said pulling Louis by the arm. I smiled at him.

"This was my idea I should get to see what goes down! I need to see this!" They all began to pull him from the room. "This fuels my boring life! I need to see it go down!"

Once the door shut the awkwardness returned. Niall just stared down at his shoes and leaned on the arm of the couch. I watched him from the door and tried to resist the urge to run over and hug him. Of course I failed because not even two seconds later I wrapped my arms around his neck.

"I missed you." was all I said and he immediately wrapped his hands around my waist and I felt his face nuzzle against my neck. We stood like that for a while just embracing each other. I didn't want this moment to end but I knew we still had a lot to talk about. I slowly and reluctantly pulled away. Our foreheads met for a moment while I looked into those eyes that I loved. "We should probably talk." He nodded. I pulled away fully and sat on the couch.

"How have you been? This time be truthful." He said holding my hand.

"I don't really know. I just feel kind of empty." I said.

"Why?" He asked.

"I felt like I left everything with you guys so awkward. Everything just felt off." I answered truthfully.

"Yeah, the 'keep in touch or something' wasn't really heartfelt." He joked and I laughed at how awkward I had been. Eventually, the laughter died and I could feel all my emotions coming to the surface and no matter how hard I tried to push them down they kept getting more intense.

"You didn't say goodbye." My voice gave out on me and cracked.

"I'm so sorry Zoey. I couldn't. I didn't want to say goodbye to you so I stood there like a complete idiot. I just didn't want that to be our goodbye." Niall looked at me, his eyes revealing everything.

"So, is this our goodbye?" I wasn't sure if I wanted that answer.

"It doesn't have to be." He paused. "I do want to be with you Zoey-"


"But, I don't think our timing is right." He answered honestly.

"I love you, Niall." I could feel the tears falling but I didn't bother to wipe them away.

"And I love you, Zoella." I managed a laugh. "I don't want this to be goodbye. At some point I do want to be with you but I can see you have some things to work on emotionally. I promise to be there for you through all of it and when you come to the end of that tunnel I will be there waiting for a seriously hot make out session." He never failed to make me laugh. "I love you Zoey and I believe that you do love me. But before you can really love me, and I mean really, you need to learn to love yourself first. I want you to be happy."

"You're right." And I meant that. I knew I needed to work on things i just didn't want to admit I was fucked up.

He smiled at me before wrapping me in his arms. We laid there not wanting this moment to end. A moment of nothing but that meant absolutely everything. A moment wrapped in each other's arms holding on to hope of the future. A moment of happiness.
