Through The Dark(Niall Horan)
Just What I Need
I spent the day with Alis, getting massages, facials, manicures, pedicures, and even our dying our hair. I decided on a pale purple, my favorite color. Perrie dyed her hair purple awhile back and I always envied it. It was time for change. Alis decided on a light to dark blue ombre which turned out incredible.
We both decided that I needed to add a few things to my wardrobe so we hit up a few shops in town. Apparently I've gained a few laying around the house so much. I went up two pant sizes. Cute.
“I'm hungry.” Alis whined as we left one of the shops.
I shrugged, realizing I hadn't eaten all day but I wasn't hungry. “We can go catch a late lunch before you drop me off at home?” I suggested.
Alis nodded and laced her arm with mine, pulling me towards her favorite restaurant. We sat in our usual booth, and our regular waitress walked over to us. “Teagan!” the woman we have come to know as Shirley, cheered. “It's been awhile since I've seen you here. How are things?”
My eyes fell to the table and I pulled my sleeves down over the palms of my hands, making sure the scars on my wrists were completely covered. “Erm..things are okay. I guess.” I put on the best smile I could. “I've just been busy is all. I also moved...” I trailed off as Shirley gave me a questioning look.
“I see.” Shirley smiled, writing something on her notepad. “It's still very good to see you. Will you two be having your usual's?”
Alis and I both nodded, and Shirley headed off towards the kitchen to put our orders in. I sat criss-cross applesauce in the booth, playing with a straw wrapper from my drink.
Alis looked up from checking her phone. “You know, sometime you're going to have to talk about it.”
I bit my lip, nodding. “I know. I'm just not ready to yet. Not to people I barely even know.”
Alis shook her head in understanding and went back to looking at things on her phone. “So...” I tried to break the awkward silence. “What else have I missed in the real world?”
She put her phone away, shrugging. “Lou got a new girlfriend, her name is Jenna. She's gorgeous. Perrie and I have hung out with her a lot, you two would probably get on.”
Louis got a new girlfriend? Weird, I didn't think he would ever get over Eleanor. “That's nice.” I smiled a bit. “We'll have to get together sometime.”
“If you want too...” Alis smiled a bit, as Shirley set our plates in front of us. “Thanks Shirley.” we both smiled before she walked off.
I picked at my plate, continuing to talk about all of the things I had missed with Alis. I really shouldn't of shut myself off from the world for so long, I had missed so much.
“Aren't you going to finish?” Alis snapped me out of my thoughts.
“Oh, uh. Actually I'm really not feeling that well. I'll just box it up and bring it home for Niall.” I smiled a bit.
“Oh.” Alis frowned. “Do you want to get going then?”
I started to nod, then something happened. My stomach turned sour. I stood up quickly, making my way to the bathroom. When I finished, I went back to the table. Alis was sitting there with my boxed up food, having already paid the check and tipped Shirley.
“What the hell happened to you?” She asked, standing.
“I don't know.” I mumbled, holding onto my stomach. “I've felt nauseous almost all day, but I thought it was because I was nervous about being out. I guess not.” I shrugged, grabbing my food from the table and heading out to Alis' car.
“I swear to God if you get me sick Teagan...” Alis gripped as we pulled up in front of my house.
I rolled my eyes. “You're the one who wanted to have a girls day.” I shot back, reaching in her back seat for my few shopping bags.
“Yeah, yeah.” Alis sighed, turning the car off. “It was nice to finally get to spend time with you...I missed you.”
I smiled a bit, leaning over and giving her a half hug. “I missed you too Alis. I promise I'll be back to normal in no time.”
A smile crept across her face. “You better. I need my best friend back.”
I smiled at her, before getting out of the car. “I'll see you later, Al.” I closed the door and watched her back out of the drive way before heading into the house. I tossed my bags on the couch and triple checked the locks on the door.
I brought my leftovers into the kitchen, ugh they smelled awful. Why did I even order this in the first place? I groaned and set it on the counter, then began searching for Niall. I found him in the basement, playing his guitar. Typical Niall.
I walked up behind him and wrapped my arms around his neck, pecking his cheek. “Hey,” I smiled, moving around him so he could see my hair.
“Holy crap!” I laughed. “Babe, you look amazing!” Niall set his guitar down, standing up and wrapping his arms around me.
“Thank you.” I smiled into his chest. I hadn't smiled this much in a really long time. I missed it.
“I take it you had a good time with Alis?”
I nodded. “I did...until the end.” I frowned.
Niall raised a brow. “What happened?”
I sighed, pulling away from him. “We went out for lunch at our usual place. I didn't feel really well so I didn't eat all of it, then I got sick at the restaurant. I honestly don't know what happened. I thought I was just nervous about going out. But I guess not.” I shrugged.
Niall frowned, kissing my forehead. “Let's get you back into bed then.” He grabbed my hand, pulling me upstairs towards our bedroom.
I pouted. “I don't want to go to bed.”
I think Niall's eyes popped out of his head. “Pardon?”
I giggled. “I said I don't want to go to bed...not yet.” I looked around. “I want to take a bubble bath.”
Niall shook his head. “Fine, fine. Go take a bubble bath. But then it's back to bed, you hear me?”
I nodded, heading off towards the bathroom. “There is food for you on the counter!” I yelled back.
Once I got to the bathroom, I plugged my iPod into my speaker, picking something mellow. I dimmed the lights and started the water. I hadn't done this in forever, this should be good. I started digging around in the bathroom for any bath salts. I checked under the sink but all that was there was a box of tampons and some cleaning supplies.
That's when it hit me. The box of tampons. They were unopened. I couldn't even remember the last time I needed to use one.
This could not be happening.
What do you think will happen next? ;)
I want to hear all of your predictions!
I love you all.
