Josh (Josh Devine/ Niall Horan)
Chapter 14 Pt. 2
The next night Eleanor and I got ready for the party together. I wore black heels, a red dress and curled my hair. I also wore mascara, red lipstick and cat line eye liner. Eleanor wore almost the same thing but with red shoes and a black dress. Louis picked us up at 8:00. Eleanor sat in the front with Louis and they were flirting the whole way. I didn't mind though. They were so adorable. It only took about ten minutes to get to the club and when I got out of the car there was a long line to get in.
"Crap... This will take ages." I muttered, suddenly wishing I had stayed home.
"Nuh uh! Coz our names are on the list!" Louis boasted. He walked straight over to the bouncer and told him your names.
"Right through here sir." He said to Louis.
"Oooh fancy." Eleanor said in a posh voice, clinging onto Louis arm.
The club atmosphere was sweaty but nice. The beat filling my insides like it was in my stomach. I had been dancing with El and Lou for about an hour before I decided to get a drink. I walked into the quiet section of the club to catch my breath. It was there I saw the person I had been dreading to see, and trying to avoid the whole night. Niall. I tried to ignore him and walked over to the food table, picking up an olive on a stick. Out of the corner of my eye I saw Niall begin to walk towards me.
"Nat." He stated quietly. I turned to face him and began backing away slowly. "Natalie. Don't run from me." Niall warned. He was clearly still intoxicated with the drugs. I was terrified. So I did the only thing I could do.
I ran. I sprinted out of the quiet room and onto the dance floor, Niall hot on my heels. I made a full circle and I was back in the quiet room. Still running, I looked over my shoulder to see how close Niall was. Then I ran into a strong, hard chest in front of me. I didn't have time too see who it was before Niall caught up with me. He grabbed my wrist and tried to pull me towards him, to which I resisted. He continued to tug on me, tightening his grip.
"Niall... Your hurting me." I winced.
"Let go of her wrist." A deep voice behind me spoke. It was the person I had crashed into. Niall remained reluctant and still hurting me. "Let go of her." The voice spoke again, this time taking a step forward but still staying behind me.
"She's my girlfriend." Niall spoke, matter-of-factly.
"Not anymore! Take a hint you stoner!" I yelled at the top of my lungs, chucking my olive at him. Niall let go of my wrist in an attempt to shield himself. He tried to step forward but this time my rescuer got there first, stepping in between Niall and I.
"Leave." The tall figure spoke. Niall back off slowly and walked away with a scowl on his face.
The guy was about a head taller than me and when he turned around my heart melted. He was so attractive. He had brown hair and blue eyes, with just a tinge of green.
"Th... Thank you," I stuttered in his presence. He smirked and I saw he had a dimple. So adorable.
He quickly wiped the smirk off of his face as he remembered my injuries. "Did he hurt you?" He asked with a glare at where Niall had made his exit.
"Just a little bit but... I'm fine." I said rubbing my wrist with my other hand.
"Come with me." The boy said, taking my hand. I didn't object. Who would? He was the most attractive person I had ever met.
"What's your name?" I asked as he rushed me down a corridor.
"Luke." He stated, gesturing to his name badge. It was only then had I realized that he worked at the club. He was wearing a black tuxedo without the jacket and some white converse. It was super hot.
"Mines Natalie." I smiled.
"I love that name." He spoke quietly. He looked about the same age as me, 23. He brought me into a loud atmosphere of a kitchen. "Wait here." He winked.
My heart fluttered with the gesture. When he came back he led me out into the corridor again and placed some ice on my wrist. I examined his hands on my arm as he watched my facial expressions, smirking.
"Why did you and that crazy guy break up?" Luke asked, carefully.
"Just that. He's crazy." I weakly laughed. Luke and I conversed for over half an hour before someone called his name from the kitchen.
"Luke!" A mans voice yelled through the doors. Luke sighed.
"What?" He yelled back.
"Stop flirting and take these drinks to table number 43!" The man replied.
Luke sighed again and gestured for me to wait. He came back out of the kitchen with a tray of drinks. "Wanna come?" He asked sweetly.
"Sure!" I smiled and followed him down the corridor once more. I stuck close to him as he walked around the dance floor to the tables. He gave the drinks to some posh looking ladies and turned back to me.
"Who brings a dog to a club." He whispered into my ear and as he walked away. It was only then I had noticed the small dog that the lady was holding. I sniggered at Luke's humor.
I began walking with him back to the kitchen when I was approached by Niall once more. "Lou and El went home. I'll take you." He stated.
I gave Luke a worried glance and he came to my rescue. "Actually she's coming home with me." Luke glared at Niall. I was shocked at Luke's excuse but I didn't care. As long as I was away from Niall, I would be fine.
"But... But she's my girlfriend." Niall bit back.
"Yeah well not anymore." Luke stated, grabbing my waist and pulling me in for a kiss.
It was magical yet, only lasted about five seconds before Niall have shoved him off of me, punching him in the face. Luke was a lot bigger than Niall and even if he was drug fueled, I knew he couldn't win the fight.
"Niall! Stop! Please!" I yelled out to him but didn't listen. "Luke don't hurt him!" I pleaded.
Luke huffed and held Niall still by grabbing his hands behind his back. "Ow! Ow! Oooowww!" Niall's yelps got louder as Luke tightened his grip on him.
"Luke." I warned. Luke let go of Niall and let him scurry away.
"Luke. Can I see you in my office." A high authority looking person spoke. "Now. Please." He was clearly impatient.
Luke kissed my hand and walked into the room. It was only then I realized the crowd that the boys had caused. People began leaving after they realized the fight was over.
I sat on a chair and played doodle-jump while I waited. When Luke came out he looked stressed, running his hands through his hair constantly. "Luke? What happened?" I asked getting up quickly.
"I got fired." He stated, looking at the floor.
"Oh god. I'm so sorry! This is all my fault!" I rushed over to him and hugged him, burying my face into his chest.
"It's cool babe. No need to worry." He smiled and kissed my forehead. "So... Did you want to come to my place?" He asked hopefully.
"Yes! Of course!" I laughed.
Niall casually walked up to me once more. I stood behind Luke and watched Niall come closer. This time his words were directed at Luke. When he was about 2 feet away he stopped and leaned closer to Luke.
"One thing," he whispered so I could barely hear him. "Look after her." He stated quietly and walked off. His words sent shivers down my spine. It was nice to know he still cared about me. Part of me wanted to call Niall back, but I didn't. I just watched as the one I loved walked out the door.
