When I Wake Up Next To You

Give You

The next morning when I woke up, I got [url=http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/set?id=62718117]dressed[/url] and ordered breakfast for myself. I still had a few days left in California so while I ate, I tried to figure out what I wanted to do.

[i]You up? - Lou[/i]

[i]Yup, what's up?[/i]

[i]Cool!!!! Haz and I are gonna be up in a sec. So make sure ur dressed. Dont wanna give him any ideas!! - Lou[/i]

I giggled at the text as I finished up my food. About twenty minutes later there was a loud pounding on my door and I opened it to find Harry and Louis waiting expectantly on the other side.

"Come on, we've got the day off. We're gonna hang out today. Thought we'd go shopping or something." Louis said, dragging me out of my room.

I laughed, "You guys really want to spend the day with me?"

"Course!" Harry said, grabbing onto my other arm, "The three of us are the best of friends. The fans'll go mental seeing us three out and about."

I bit my lip, "Niall... won't be joining us will he?" I said quietly. The two exchanged glances before Louis shook his head.

"No, but Alice... you can't avoid him forever." he said.

"He explained everything to us last night. He really is sorry, he's just really thick. You were the first girl he's ever really fell in love with, he just wanted to make sure you'd be safe." Harry added.

I nodded, "I know... I'm just... not sure what to say yet."

"Well, worry not! Today we are going to get your mind off of everything!" Louis said brightly.

True to his word, the day was spent walking around L.A. diving in and out of shops, laughing at the paparazzi and well... just having a good time.

"Alright, we both have a big surprise for you." Louis said as we pulled up to the hotel, "So here, put this on."

I put on the blindfold he gave me, and gripped both their hands tightly as they led me into the hotel.

"Come on, come on, this way." We got inside the elevator, and I laughed nervously.

"Guys, what's going on..." I said quietly, holding on their hands for dear life, it was incredibly disorienting to be walking around with a blindfold.

"Just hush, we're almost there." Louis said, as they walked me out the elevator. A few seconds later we stopped and I heard one of them open a door and they quickly shoved me inside.

"Alright! Take your blindfold off! Have fun!" I whipped the blindfold off and whirled around to see the door shut behind me.

"What the hell?" I turned back around and looked at the room they put me in. Candles were placed all around it, lighting the room in the dusky light of the sunset, "...Niall?"

Then... there he was, looking nervous and scared, with his hands shoved into his pockets. His blue eyes showing hesitation and uneasiness.

"Hey love."

"What... what is this?"

"You like it?" he held his hands up and looked around the room with a smile, "The boys helped me out with it. I was going to make a reservation at some fancy place... but they made me realize you'd appreciate this better."

I smiled, "It's... really pretty. A hotel room is pretty fitting... it's where we met. Well, for the second time."

He smiled back, relaxing a bit, and grabbed my hand, "Come on out to the balcony."

Outside on said balcony was a table set up for two, food waiting beneath silver covers like something straight out of a movie. I bit my lip, trying hard not to cry - hadn't I done enough of that? I was touched, that Niall was truly making an effort to make things right.

"Here sit down," he said pulling out my seat, "I ordered our favorite."

He smiled at me and took the covers off the food, revealing chicken and fries underneath them. I let out a giggle, "It's perfect."

"Really? I was worried it wouldn't be y'know fancy enough and-"

I shook my head, "Niall... when will you get it? I don't care about any of that," I looked up at him and smiled gently, "All I want is you. If I have that, I don't care about the rest."

He smiled back at me and sat down, "Right. Let's eat. I'm starvin', haven't been able to eat all day."

I laughed, "Really? You unable to eat? That's a new one."

"I wafsh nervoufsh." He mumbled through a mouthful of fries, "I wanted to make sure everything was perfect."

"Well it is," I replied, taking a bite of my chicken, "Absolutely simple and perfect, just how I want it."

We ate quietly for a few moments before I cleared my throat and nervously asked, "So, have you broken up with Charlene?"

"Yeah..." Niall smirked, "She didn't take it too well. Said she'd make sure the lads and I never perform in America again. Simon said that was a joke though, that if anything she'd be the one out a job."

"Yeah, I think she underestimates Directioner's power." I said with a laugh. So it really had been a sham relationship then. My stomach fluttered with happiness and I smiled.

As we ate and watched the sunset, I became more and more relaxed. This is what I missed, the simplicity of our relationship. No worrying about lost memories, or insane singers.

"You finished?" Niall asked, nodding towards my plate. I nodded and he grinned at me, "Alright, wait here."

He got up and went back into his room and I sat there quietly waiting for him to come back out. He was back in no time, guitar in hand.

"What are you..."

"I... wrote a song. For you. For us." Niall pulled his seat so it was right next to mine, "I... Alice, I love you more than anything. I realized that when I was away from you, I was a right miserable mess."

He began to strum the guitar, and then began to sing softly, his eyes never straying from mine,

"[i]Said I’d never leave her cause her hands fit like my t-shirt... Tongue tied over three words, cursed. Running over thoughts that make my feet hurt... Bodies intertwined with her lips. Now she’s feeling so low since she went solo... Hole in the middle of my heart like a polo... And it’s no joke to me.. So we can we do it all over again."[/i]

He took a deep breath, and I bit my lip trying hard to keep back the tears already trying to leak out, [i]"If you’re pretending from the start like this... With a tight grip, then my kiss... Can mend your broken heart... I might miss everything you said to me... And I can lend you broken parts... That might fit like this... And I will give you all my heart... So we can start it all over again..."[/i]

Any restraint I had was broken, and I began to cry, barely able to see Niall now through my tears. I could hear his voice begin to waver and when I looked up, I saw his own tears sliding down his cheeks.

"[i]Can we take the same road two days in the same clothes... And I know just what she’ll say if I make all this pain go... Can we stop this for a minute... You know, I can tell that your heart isn’t in it or with it. Tell me with your mind, body and spirit... I can make your tears fall down like the showers that are British. Whether we’re together or apart... We can both remove the masks and admit we regret it from the start."[/i]

"Niall..." I whispered, trying to desperately wipe away the tears coming out.

[i]"If you’re pretending from the start like this,
With a tight grip, then my kiss
Can mend your broken heart
I might miss everything you said to me

And I can lend you broken parts
That might fit like this
And I will give you all my heart
So we can start it all over again

You’ll never know how to make it on your own
And you’ll never show weakness for letting go
I guess you’re still hurt if this is over
But do you really want to be alone?

If you’re pretending from the start like this,
With a tight grip, then my kiss
Can mend your broken heart
I might miss everything you said to me

And I can lend you broken parts
That might fit like this
And I will give you all my heart
So we can start it all over again

If you’re pretending from the start like this,
With a tight grip, then my kiss
Can mend your broken heart
I might miss everything you said to me

And I can lend you broken parts
That might fit like this
And I will give you all my heart
So we can start it all over again..."[/i]

When he finished, I grabbed the guitar out of his arms and grabbed him to hug, burying my face into his shoulder as I began to cry uncontrollably.

"I made you cry again..." Niall murmered into me, "I didn't want that."

"Idiot." I sniffled, "It's good tears, I've never been more happy in my life."

I leaned back, staring into his blue eyes that had their own tears coming out, and kissed him gently. For the first time since everything had happened, since waking up with no memories, to Charlene... for the first time I felt completely right. This was where I belonged, with Niall. And this was where he belonged, with me.

"I love you." I said quietly, as I pulled away, "I love you so much, that simply saying it just isn't enough."

Niall wrapped his arms around me, "Babe," he kissed the tip of my nose, "After this entire mess, the one thing I'm certain of is how much you love me. And I promise... I'll never take that for granted again."

I smiled at him, wrapping my arms around his neck, "Same. I don't plan on letting anyone else snag you away."

Niall smiled at me, giving me another kiss and then looked at me, "Wanna head back inside?" he asked.

"I think that would be perfect." I said, getting up and letting him lead me back into his hotel room.

And for the first time in a long time, I didn't spend the night alone and upset, but instead spent it loved and happy.
