Nicole sat down by the water at the beach and sighed softly to herself. The only thought running through her mind was how badly she missed her boyfriend, Niall. He has been on tour for months and was supposed to be returning that night but she didn’t know when. Her question was answered when her phone went off. She opened the text message.
"Where are you?" Niall had texted her. She smiled and stood up, replying quickly.
"Beach" She pressed send and looked up at the stars in the sky, waiting with her phone in hand, desperate for his reply. It felt like hours but a smile formed to her face when her phone went off again.
"Be there soon!" Was his reply. Her heart started to race, anxious to see his perfect face in person again. She turned around, looking around for him. She waited for only a few minutes when she saw a familiar blond haired boy running toward her with open arms. She quickly ran toward him with open arms as well, jumping into his arms and holding onto him firmly. He caught her, wrapping his arms around her waist tightly. Tears formed into her eyes, happy to just be in his arms again. He smiled wide and continued to hold her, never wanting to let go of her again.
"Oh god, i’ve missed you!" She softly spoke. He smiled and let her down, taking his arms off from her just to wipe her tears away.
"I’ve missed you too" He told her, kissing her deeply and wrapping his arms back around her waist. She smiled and laid her head onto his chest.
"I’m so glad you’re home.. How was tour?" She asked, peaking up at him.
"It was amazing! The whole tour was just fantastic. The fans were amazing and the shows turned out really successful. We all had so much fun" He smiled as he explained his trip. She smiled also.
"Glad you had fun" She smiled, kissing his cheek softly. He smiled and they both jumped a bit as his phone went off. He took it out of his pocket, seeing who it was and let go of Nicole, taking a step back.
"I have to take this" He told her. He walked away a bit and talked on the phone to the mystery person. Nicole, feeling a bit upset now, just stood there, waiting for him to return. She just gets back into his arms and somebody has to call and ruin that for them. She waited for a few minutes until Niall finally hung up the phone and walked back to her.
"Sorry about that, it was just Zayn. He called to ask if I want to go play soccer with him and the lads tomorrow" He smiled. She looked at him with slight anger filling her body.
"What did you say?" She asked.
"I said sure, why?" He replied, looking at her and pulling her back into his embrace.
"Um, I thought you and I were going to hang out tomorrow seeming I haven’t seen you for months" She sighed.
"Oh, sorry.. It’s just, the lads want to play Soccer and see who the final champion is" He explained. She rolled her eyes, stepping back out of his embrace and looking down at the sand. He looked at her, confused.
"Why are you acting crabby? Aren’t we supposed to be hugging? Holding eachother?" He snapped lightly, half from anger and half from being over tired from the plane ride home.
"Me? Acting crabby? Niall! We were supposed to hang out tomorrow! We haven’t seen each other in months! You’ve seen them everyday of that tour and you’re still going to go hang out with them and ditch me?" She stormed.
"You can come too! I made the plans with the lads, i’m not going to cancel on them" He stated, messing with his hair a bit before letting his hand fall back down to his side.
"Of course. The boys come first now, I see" She snapped, turning around so her back was to him and took a few steps away. Niall reached out and grabbed her by the wrist, stopping her and pulling her back toward him.
"No! But I made plans with them. I can’t just cancel the night before. It’s only two hours! What’s so wrong with that?" He groaned.
"Yeah, right. Whatever Niall. Have fun tomorrow" She rolled her eyes and shook her hand free from his, walking away. Niall sighed and started to tear up himself.
"Nicole! Please!" He yelled out after her. She just kept running, going all the way home before she stopped. Niall didn’t go home, he went straight to Zayn’s house. Tiredly, Zayn opened the door and let Niall in. Niall went straight for the couch and laid down on it, hiding his face. Zayn was at his side in seconds and patted his back.
"Niall.. What’s wrong?" He asked. Niall just shook his head, not wanting to talk about it right away. Zayn nodded, understanding what he wanted and looked around. "You want something to eat and we can talk?" He asked.
"No.." Niall mumbled into the couch cushion. Zayn knew that something horrible really must have happened. Niall never turns down food. Zayn lifted him up and sat down next to him. After a while, Niall did finally tell him everything. Zayn sighed and helped him through it.
Meanwhile, Nicole was alone in her room. Curled up into her bed, she cried to herself. That was the first fight they had ever had and it hurt her to know that. She always thought that they would be a perfect couple who never fought but this proved her wrong. Now the big thing she was worried about was this silly fight ruining their beautiful relationship. She cried herself to sleep that night.
The next morning, she woke up to a text on her cell. She saw it was from Niall and wanted to ignore it but sighed and opened it anyway.
"Nicole, I am sorry for last night. I didn’t want to argue with you. I have missed you so much and I didn’t want my return to be like that. I am sorry. Please, come outside so we can talk this out…" She read. She sighed, seeing this text was received two hours ago and figuring Niall would have gone home by now.
She forced herself out of bed and went downstairs, heading for the living room when she noticed someone outside. She peaked out the window and saw Niall, sitting on her porch, hugging his knees to his chest. She gasped softly, realizing that the weather channel had said low tempertures. She quickly opened her front door and pulled him up and inside, shutting the door behind him. He looked at her with sincerely sorry eyes and she looked at him and then looked down.
"I was asleep earlier.. You could have went home" She told him.
"Well, I waited" He replied. She looked at him and folded her arms across her chest, opening her mouth to say something.
"I’m sorry" They both said together. Nicole shook her head and looked at him.
"No, it was my fault. I shouldn’t have flipped out that easily over something so silly. I love you and i’m sorry for even acting that way" She frowned.
"No, i’m sorry. I shouldn’t have made plans. I knew you missed me and I missed you too. I should have let us catch up before making plans with the guys. I’m so sorry" He kissed her forehead and pulled her into a hug. She held onto him, not wanting to let go. She yawned softly and blinked her eyes.
"Did you sleep?" he asked. She shrugged.
"Off and on" She admitted. Niall frowned, picked her up and carried her back to her bedroom where he laid her down and laid down beside her.
"Go to sleep, i’ll be here when you get up" He told her. She wanted to protest but her mind was already half asleep. The last thing she felt before falling asleep was his lips against her forehead.
