I sit on the edge of my बिस्तर while Niall paces in front of me. "I don't understand, Kate." he starts. "Why are आप अभिनय so weird around me?" I look up at him helplessly. "It's not like you're weirded out द्वारा me being famous, right? So I don't understand what the deal is. It's like everytime I'm around, आप go into this shell and don't let anyone in." Niall continues, running his hands through his blonde hair. "I know who आप really are, but आप don;t दिखाना it! आप act shy all the time, आप act like you've been hurt really badly... if you've been hurt Kate, I want to know! I want to know so I can protect आप and make the hurt go away!" I stood up and threw my hands to my side. "Enough!" I कहा angrily. Niall looks at me in surprise. "Sit down, pretty boy." He cautiously sits on my bed. "I am hurt." I say angrily. "I am very hurt. I have tried to get over it, but everyday has just been so hard since आप left. Niall, आप didn't even say goodbye to me! How did आप expect me to feel everday since then? I felt like I had done something wrong, something to make आप hate me, something to make आप regret every saying आप loved me. Do आप remember that Niall? आप कहा आप loved me before!" I cried. Niall's eyes soften and he pulled me अगला to him. "I never got to say it back to you." I whispered. "And then आप left a few years later... but it still hasn't change for me, Niall. I stil care... I still प्यार you. I always have." He hugs me tightly. "I was afraid if I told आप I was leaving, things would only be harder." he admitted quietly, playing with a strand of my dark brown hair. "You were wrong." I whispered, barely audible. "Well that doesn't matter now. It's in the past, and I'm here now." Niall says, coming closer to my face. "Please don't." I beg. "I thought आप wanted this?" Niall asked, confused. "I do, Niall. I really do. I just don't want our first किस to be at a time like this." Niall stood up and took my hand. "In time, I will make up for all those chances I should have kissed आप at. I promise that." I smiled and he wiped away my tears. "It's always been you." Niall says. "Nobody compares to you."
