My eyelids fluttered open, I rolled over to see Niall. He flashed his pearly white teeth.
"You're up!" He exclaimed, quickly kissing my lips.
"What time is it?" I muttered groggily.
"Almost three thirty." Niall replied.
"Oh." I covered my mouth with my hand as I yawned. I stretched, then rolled out of bed. Niall joined me at the window, our reflections barely visible in the glass. The snow was now falling more heavily, I could hardly see across the street.
"Wow, the snow's really picked up." I commented.
"It sure has!" Niall responded. "According to the weather man, we're supposed to get a foot of snow overnight." Niall looked at me, my eyes widened.
"That's a lot, lets hope we get snowed in. Getting snows in means no school." I raised my eyebrows, and smiled.
"Lets hope the storm continues comin our way." Niall tapped my bum, earning a giggle from me. "Do you fancy something to drink?" He asked.
"Sure," I grinned. I followed him downstairs, sitting on the kitchen counter as he prepared two cups of tea.
"Don't you just love early release?" Niall looked up from the mugs. I nodded in response. "I sense there's still tension between you and Harry?"
I nodded, looking up at the ceiling. "Yeah," I sighed. "I know he's just trying to protect me, but I know he doesn't like the idea of us." I looked into Niall's ocean blue eyes.
"He'll get used to it, I promise, love." Niall smirked, placing his hand in my thigh.
"It's gonna take a lot of getting used to for him." I sighed, placing my hand ontop of Niall's. I moved his hand away, it dropped limply at his sighed.
"Babe," Niall whined.
"Niall," I mocked. Niall grinned, quickly sticking his tongue out at me. I shook my head, rolling my eyes. I mimicked his movement, playfully punching him in the shoulder.
"You like sugar in your tea, right?"
"Yes I do," I smiled. Niall put two small spoonfuls of sugar into my mug, and stirred it. He carried our mugs to the living room. I turned the light on, taking a seat on the couch.
"Someday I wanna take you on a trip... Just me and you." Niall said, pausing to take a sip of tea.
"That would be nice." I smiled at the thought. The table side light turned off, I looked at Niall in confusion. Niall swore under his breath, setting his tea down. He flicked the light switch on and off.
"What are we gonna do?" I questioned. Niall exhaled slowly.
"I dunno," he shrugged. "There is one thing...." Niall trailed off. "You might not like it though."
"We could stay with Harry... If he has power that is." I shrugged in response, then frowned.
"If he has power then sure. I can give him a call," I said.
"Alright," Niall responded. I tapped Harry's contact, then pressed 'call'. I held the phone to my ear, waiting for him to answer.
"Hello?" Harry greeted, picking up on the fourth ring.
"Hey Harry. Do you uh, have power at your house?"
"Yeah." Harry replied simply.
"Can Niall and I uh, stay at your house?" I asked.
"Thanks Haz, we'll be over soon."
"Okay, bye Talia. You two drive safe on your way here." Harry said.
"Okay, good." Harry responded.
"Bye," I replied tapping the 'end' button. Niall looked at me.
"He said we can stay at his place." I told Niall.
"Hopefully the roads won't be too bad." He said, while getting up.
"I hope not," I agreed. I followed Niall to his room, I zipped up my mini suitcase, then put my boots and hoodie on. I helped Niall gather his things, then I followed him into the kitchen. We packed a bag of food that doesn't need refrigeration so we'd have food if Harry lost power.
"I think that's everything we need." Niall said. "I'll just drive extra slow on the way to Harry's." Niall pecked my cheek, then we headed out to Niall's car.
I knocked twice on the door, then entered.
"Hello!" I greeted as Niall and I walked in with our things.
"Hey Tal, it's nice to have you back." Harry embraced me.
"Don't get used to it." I muttered under my breath.
"What?" Harry questioned.
"Nothing," I waved him off.
"How was the drive here?" Harry asked, directing the question at Niall.
"It wasn't too bad. I just had to drive slow, but we made it here in one piece."
"Do you wanna take your things up to my room?" I said softly, leaning towards Niall.
"Um, you're not sleeping in the same bed as him." Harry whispered in my ear.
"Harry." I snapped, he glared at me in response. I took my suitcase upstairs, then set it beside my bed, taking a seat. Niall pecked my cheek, putting two fingers under my chin. He forced me to look at him.
"You're beautiful, Tal." Niall leaned in, pressing his lips to mine. "Don't ever let anyone tell you different, okay." Niall asked, pulling back.
"Okay." I nodded, wrapping my arms around Niall. I rested my head on his shoulder.
"I'm hungry!" Niall exclaimed.
"Let's go get you some food then!" I giggled, taking his hand. We walked past Harry, who was watching a football game, and into the kitchen.
I opened the pantry door, and walked into the small room.
"Choose anything you'd like." I said to Niall.
"I'd like you," he said hotly, squeezing my bum.
"Niall!" I squealed, he chuckled in response. He picked up a small pack of Oreo's, then left the pantry. He took a seat on the couch, making himself at home.
"Have you talked to mum lately?" I asked my brother. He nodded 'yes' in response.
"Have you?" He asked me.
"Yup," I popped the 'p'.
"We haven't had a storm like this in awhile..." Harry trailed off.
"No we haven't." Niall shook his head. "It's fine by me though, I love days off school."
"I think we all do," I said.
"Have you talked to Erin lately?" Harry asked randomly.
"No," I replied half laughing like it was a joke. "She's been rude to me." Out of the corner of my eye, I saw Niall bite his lip and look down.
"Oh." Harry mumbled. "And are you and Niall dating?" Harry asked slowly, staring at me intently.
"No?" I replied like it was a question.
"Not yet is the correct answer." Niall corrected me. Harry inhaled and exhaled slowly.
"Okay then." Harry sighed slowly. He looked at his phone, then got up. "I guess I'll get dinner started... You guys okay with panini's?" I nodded in response.
"That sounds great!" Niall responded with a smile. When Harry walked into the kitchen, Niall kissed my lips. I smiled into the kiss, then kissed him back.
"Do you wanna go to my room?" I asked Niall. He licked his lips, then nodded. I took his hand, we intertwined fingers.
"I'm gonna take a quick shower." I told Niall.
"Okay babe, I'll wait here." Niall winked. I quickly grabbed a pair of cozier clothes, then went into the bathroom.
I took my clothes off while waiting for the water to warm up, then got in. I let the warm water wash over my body, then put soap on my loofah. I scrubbed the suds all over my body, then rinsed it off. I thought I heard the sound of a door open and close, but waved it off.
I washed my hair, then put conditions in my hair. I rinsed it out, then turned the water off. I took my towel off the toilet seat, I wrapped it loosely around my body, the pulled back the shower curtain.
"Hey sexy," Niall smirked, biting his lip.
"Niall!" I wish per shouted, holding my towel around me. "Get out before Harry finds out you're in here!" I opened the door, shoving Niall out of the bathroom. I locked the door, then changed into sweats and a hoodie.
"Hey baby." I greeted as I walked back into my room. I found Niall sprawled out across my bed.
"Hey love!" Niall perked up. I jumped on the bed, getting close to Niall. I quickly pecked his lips, then pulled back.
"That's all I get!?" Niall pouted, clearly disappointed.
"No, that's just the preview." I joked, raised my eyebrows.
"Well, I'll be sure to stay tuned for part two." He licked his lips.
"Talia, Niall, dinner's ready!" Harry shouted from downstairs.
"Coming!" I replied. "C'mon, let's go eat." I said to Niall, putting my hair into a neat bun before walking downstairs. Niall set next to me, and Harry took a seat across from me.
Not much was said while we were eating. But occasionally Harry would as a question, he did most of the talking.
Niall held me in his arms as we layer in my bed. My room was lit up more than usual. The street light reflected off of the snow.
"I wish every night was like this..." Niall trailed off.
"Me too, nights like this are perfect." I replied.
"You're perfect." Niall replied, kissing my lips.
“Mmm.” I replied, knowing it’s far from the truth.
“Someday I hope we can be together,” Niall said.
“Who’s stopping us?” I asked, turning to look at him. He shrugged.
“When I’m with you everything’s perfect.” Niall turned so that he could kiss my lips.My feelings for Niall were growing stronger day by day. I just hoped he would ask me to be his girlfriend soon.
*A/N What do you think will happen next?
