Tattooed Memories *n.h.*
Chapter 9: Pillowtalk
I laid tangled in the charcoal grey bed sheets with my finger drawing shapes onto Niall's bare chest. He was laying on his back with his left hand around my waist and his right arm rested under his head as he stared up at the ceiling.
We didn't do anything more than just kissing. It was getting heated but we both agreed to stop before it got out of hand.
I had changed out of my outfit and into one of Niall's shirts that reached down to my upper thigh. He had stripped down to his boxers before we crawled into bed.
"So does that mean I can take you out on a date?" His deep Irish accent filled the room after a few moments of silence and us enjoying each other's company. I looked up to see he had a small grin on his lips.
He ran his fingers through my slightly messy hair as I spoke. "No. I'm still gonna let Lou take me on dates," I teased in a joking way, making him pout. I smiled before I leaned up to press my lips to his. "Of course it does, Ni."
He took the next action and cupped my face in his hands so he could deepen the kiss. "You are so gorgeous," he said softly as he pulled away to kiss my forehead and wrap both of his arms around my waist.
Every time he touched me, my stomach would erupt into butterflies. When he kissed me, my mind got a little fuzzy. Something I never had happen to me before. Yeah I've dated but none of those guys could compare to how Niall makes me feel.
I blushed lightly at his words and buried my face into the crook of his neck. "Can you tell me things about you that I don't know?" I asked. He sighed lightly before his hands went up the back of my shirt to my bare skin.
"Well my mum and brother live in Ireland, along with the rest of my family. While my father lives here and owns Horan inc." He told me quietly while he ran his fingers up and down my back. "My dad and mum got a divorce when I was 8 when she found him cheating on her... So he moved here with his new girlfriend and just forgot about us. But about two years ago, he contacted me and my brother. Greg forgave him in an instant while I was just giving the cold shoulder. He gave me this opportunity to go here. And since then, he's been giving me expensive gifts like my car to try to get me to forgive him."
I stayed silent and listened to him as he talked. I could tell by his tone how the topic hurt and upset him. "It's alright love. You don't need to talk about it if you don't want to." I assured him while he pulled me closer to him. "Let's talk about something that makes you happy."
"Like you?" Niall asked with a goofy grin, making me giggle. "Because you make me happy." He buried his face into the crook of my neck, his scruff tickling me a bit.
"Well you make me happy as well," I said with a smile as I ran my fingers through his hair while he cuddled into me. "But it's like 3 in the morning. I think we should go to bed, love." I felt him nod before he reached over and shut the light off.
"Goodnight Ro." he said in his thick Irish accent and I felt him press his lips to mine. He pulled away a few seconds later before lying his head on his pillow.
I told him goodnight before I drifted off to sleep.
The next morning, I was woken up with the sound of loud noises coming from the other side of the apartment. I groaned lightly to myself and sat up in the bed, noticing the Niall wasn't in the room at all.
After I put my hair up into a bun, I slipped out of the bed and made my way to the kitchen. Niall had his back to me, cooking something on the stove in nothing but his tight black Calvin Klein boxers. His back muscles flexed as he moved the things around in the pan with a spatula.
I smiled to myself and went up behind him, wrapping my arms around his waist and leaned my head onto the back of his shoulder. He tensed a bit before relaxing and looked back at me.
"Well good morning princess. I was wondering when you'd wake up." he said with a small grin before going back to cooking the pancakes and bacon. "Breakfast will be done in a few minutes."
"Alright," I said in response before placing a kiss on his shoulder and lifting myself on the the island counter behind him. My legs swung back and forth as I watched him.
After a few minutes, he set up two plates and put them at the dining room table. I jumped down from where I was sitting and got into an empty seat. Niall sat down across from me and started to eat.
I took a few bites and looked over at him. "Thanks for breakfast, Ni. It's absolutely amazing," I complimented with a smile.
He thanked me before saying: "So after we eat, we can get dressed and I'll take you back to your dorm." As he spoke, I ate the food that was on my plate. "And then you can get ready for tonight cause I'm taking you out on a date."
"And when did I agree to this date tonight?" I asked him teasingly with a raised eyebrow. He just gave me a smile before taking a bite of his bacon.
"I did. So I'm gonna pick you up at about 8 after football practice." He told me. I stood up from my seat and took my empty dishes into the kitchen. I washed them in the sink before placing them in the dishwasher.
"Alright well I'm gonna go get dressed then." I headed down the hallway to his bedroom. "Don't be surprised if you find that some of your clothes are missing."
I hear him laugh before I go into his walk-in closet and try to find something to wear. He had so much clothes that it was ridiculous. Especially tons of hats and sneakers. I find one of his football jerseys and a pair of comfy sweatpants. I change into them before I go into the room to gather my things.
Niall walked in a few minutes later and slipped on a pair of jeans and a t-shirt on. Then we headed out to his car. The whole ride to my dorm, he held my hand in his and placed them into my lap as he drove.
"I'll see you later babe," He said softly when he parked the car. Then leaned over to place his lips on mine for a few moments.
"Have fun at practice." I told him before getting out of the car and headed up to my room.
Perrie was there and shot off her bed when she saw me. She noticed my choice of clothing and raised her eyebrow. I knew that I was gonna have to explain to her what had happened the past 12 hours.
