"Brit? I have something to tell you" one of my best friends, Louis Tomlinson, said in his cute British accent. I looked up into his deep blue eyes as he nervously ruffled the back of his straight, dark brown hair. "What is it Lou?" I asked, worried. Wait a minute! I should introduce myself. I'm Brittney. I'm 17 years old. I've been best friends with all the boys of One Direction for a while now. I met them when they first came to the States, and I instantly became best friends with them. Afterwards, I moved to England and into the same apartment building as Louis and Harry. Anyway, back to the story.
Louis had been acting strange for a while, but I had a feeling I was about to find out why. "Well........." Louis paused. "Go on Lou. You know you can tell me anything." I reassured him. "Alright then. I'm kind of.... sort of.... completely in love with you. I think you're the most beautiful girl in the world. I love the way your auburn hair glistens in the sunlight and I get weak whenever I look into your beautiful hazel green eyes. I've felt this way for a while now. I've just been too afraid to say anything. So I'd like to ask you something. Would you please be my girlfriend?" Louis asked. I did kind of like Louis. I mean, he was cute, sweet, and had an amazing voice. What more could you want? "I'd be happy to be your girlfriend Lou." I replied, smiling. His smile lit up his whole face and he came closer to me. He put his arms around my waist and I put my arms around his neck. He pressed his lips to mine. I felt a little spark, but oddly enough, it wasn't very strong. I pushed the thought out of my mind as Louis wrapped me in his arms.
*2 months later*
It had been 2 months with Louis. Everything was going great. Louis was an amazing boyfriend. He was sweet, charming, funny, and such a gentlemen. He would always tell me goodnight and text me good morning and he'd always sing to me. I just couldn't help but feel like something was missing from our relationship though. Eventually, I figured it out.
I would always hang out with all 5 boys, but even with Louis right next to me, whenever Niall's piercing blue eyes turned my way, I'd get butterflies in my stomach and my heart started racing and I had no idea why. Niall had been acting really weird and different ever since Louis and I got together. Something was wrong, and I had to find out what it was. One day, I found Niall and decided to ask him about what was going on. "Niall!" I screamed as I tackled him, giving him a huge bear hug. He started laughing. "Well hey there Ms. Brittney!" he said in his amazing Irish accent that sent my head reeling. I laughed too. "I actually have to talk to you about something." I said. "Sure! What's goin on?" he asked. "Well...... I noticed you haven't been yourself lately. At least not when Louis and I are together. What's wrong Nialler?" I asked him. "Nothing's wrong Brit....." Niall said, getting a bit sad. "Niall, I KNOW they're something wrong. What is it?" I pushed. "I told you. It's nothing." he replied, getting more defensive. "Niall James Horan, I know they're something wrong! Just tell me what it is!" I screamed. Suddenly, Niall's handsome features darkened with anger. "I TOLD YOU NOTHING'S WRONG! NOW GET AWAY FROM ME!" Niall screamed back. That was the first time Niall had ever raised his voice at me. Tears formed in my eyes and I ran away back to my apartment and cried myself to sleep.
*3 days later*
I'd been in my apartment 3 days. I hadn't even talked to Louis or any of the other boys. I decided I needed to talk to Louis because even though I cared about him, there's just something missing in our relationship. I went down to Louis and Harry's apartment and knocked on the door. Louis answered the door. "Hello there love! It's nice to see you out of your apartment." he said as he smiled brightly. He hugged me tight. Louis's smile just made my heart drop. It was gonna kill me because Louis was so sweet and I could tell he really cared about me, but something told me that he wasn't the one for me. When we pulled away from our hug, I got a little sad and Louis noticed. "Darling, what's wrong?" Louis asked, concerned. "Well, I decided we needed to talk about something important." I replied. His face dropped. "Oh......." he said, his head dropping. "I'm so sorry Lou, but I think we need to break up. I don't know what it is, but I just...... I don't know. I feel like there's something missing......" I replied. I saw the tears start to form in his deep blue eyes. "I-if you feel that way, I-I guess I can't do anything to change it....." Louis said as the first tears streamed down his face. "I'm so sorry Lou...." I said, putting my hand on his face. I reached up to kiss his cheek for the last time as his girlfriend and walked out of the apartment, on the brink of tears myself. It killed me to break Louis's heart.
On my way to my apartment, I waited for the tiny elevator to open. When it did, I saw Niall. I finally had my chance to talk to Niall for the first time since our fight 3 days ago. He looked sad and I could tell he'd been crying by the redness in his beautiful, piercing blue eyes. "Niall?" I said as I stepped in the elevator next to him. "I'm outta here" I heard him mutter under his breath. He started to walk out. I grabbed his hand to pull him back into the elevator and the door closed. "Niall, we need to talk." I said. The elevator started to go up to my floor, then it suddenly stopped and everything went black. "Oh my God!" I said. I started freaking out because the elevator was tiny and now, everything was pitch dark. I hated dark, small spaces. I started panicking and shaking. Niall grabbed my hand and pulled me into his arms. He stroked my auburn hair, trying to calm me down. His thick, sweet, Irish accent instantly soothed me. My heart was still racing, but not from being scared. My heart was racing because I was in Niall's arms. That's when I finally realized that the reason I felt like there was something missing in Louis and I's relationship is because I was in love with Niall all along. When I was in Niall's arms, everything melted away. If I was trapped in that elevator with anyone, I was glad it was Niall. He was the only person I would want there with me.
After a while, I calmed down enough to talk. Niall and I were sitting on the floor. I was sitting in his lap and he was holding me, still stroking my hair. "Niall?" I whispered, breaking the silence. "Yeah Brit?" he replied softly in that Irish accent that made me melt. "Why were you acting so weird before when Louis and I were together?" I asked. There was a few seconds of silence. "Do you really wanna know?" he replied. "Of course, Nialler." I said. "Well, I guess it doesn't matter since you're with Louis. I'm in love with you Brittney. I have been for a while. It hurt whenever I saw you and Lou together. That's why I would act so weird after you guys started goin out....." he replied. "Well, it does matter Niall. Louis and I aren't together anymore...." I said. "Really? Why?" he asked. "I just felt like something was missing. I didn't feel the spark that I should've. But I now I know why I felt like that." I replied. "And why'd you feel like that?" he asked. "Well..... because I'm in love with you too Niall. I guess I have been for a while. I just never realized it til now. In hindsight, I realized that my feelings for you made me feel that way." I replied. There was a silence. Then I feel Niall's hand on either side of my face and he pressed his sweet, soft lips to mine. I instantly felt electricity shoot through my whole body. Every nerve in my body ignited and the butterflies in my stomach went insane. We pulled away and Niall just held me. "Brittney, I love you so much. I don't think I can live without you and I know it's probably wrong, but would you be mine?" he asked. "Niall James Horan, I don't care how wrong it is. I love you too and of course I'll be yours" I replied. Niall laughed, then placed another electrifying, perfect kiss on my lips. Just then, the lights turned back on and the elevator started moving again. I heaved a sigh of relief and Niall smiled his bright, beautiful smile. We stood up and walked out of the elevator hand in hand. Even though I had to face my worst fear and even though it killed me to hurt Louis, I realized that day that my heart belonged to Niall ♥
