Louis thought it would be best for me and Nikki to stay in a different hotel from the rest of the band. I agreed instantly, noticing a ton of pressure was lifted off of me. "And be careful of the papparazzi. If they hear anything of you and Niall, your life will be a lot more complicated." I remember Louis telling me.
Nikki sits on her bed and stares at me. "What happened with you and Niall?" I turn around to watch as she got ready for her date with him. "I don't know. Why don't you ask him?" Nikki nodded. "Okay. I hope your friendship can be saved." I rolled my eyes. "Doubt it." I whispered.
She stood up. "Well, I'll be going. Have fun!" I hugged her. "Be careful." Nikki smiled. "I will. And I'll bring you something back!" I grinned. "Great, thank you!" She left the room and I sat on my bed. A few minutes later, the door was knocked on. I stood up and opened it. "Niall? What the hell are you doing here?" I asked angrily. "I had to use the bathroom, is that okay with you?" he retorted. I closed my eyes. "Fine, go ahead." I returned to my place back on the bed.
Niall came back out and paused. "Tori...for what it's worth...I'm sorry." I looked at him. "Niall. Just don't hurt my best friend. Or else." I say, blowing off his apology. Niall closed the door and walked over to me. "Tori," he said, sitting next to me. I curse silently at my pounding heart. His lips brush my ear. "I love you." he whispers.
I can't fight the urge anymore. I meet his lips softly at first, then becoming more rough with passion. I broke away. Shock in my eyes. "No no no no." I covered my face. "What?" Niall asked, breathing heavily. "Go. Niall. Just go. Please." He doesn't say anything as he leaves. I sit there bewildered. I did not just secretly kiss him. Again, I think. "Oh my gosh... yes I did." I groan.
My heart is racing. I kissed Tori again. This time it was different. More wild, and urgent, and needy. I slow my breathing to a minimum as I approach Nikki. "Are you ready?" I ask smiling. She nods. "Let's go!" She grabs my hand and we run out of the doors.
"Thai food, huh?" I ask her, looking at a menu. "Well, yeah. I love Thai food, plus it's Tori's favorite, and I wanted to get her something on the way back." I froze. Tori. The girl I just kissed. She still cares. Then a new thought strikes me. I said I loved her.
"Niall, by the way, what happened with you two?"
I stare at Nikki. "Um, well. We kissed. And then she regretted it. And then I blew up." Nikki's eyes are wide. "You...you kissed?" I can see the heartache in her eyes. "No! Sorry, cruel joke there!" I say quickly. I can't bear to hurt Nikki too. "Oh...jeez Niall. Don't you know when to stop joking around?" she exclaimed laughing.
I smile, secretly regretting that lie inside. I just couldn't do it. I couldn't crush her heart just like I crushed Tori's. But at least Tori still cared. But... she was with Louis... and we still kissed. Where would that leave us? I guess only one way to see was to wait...
