I Wish – Chapter 38

Tampa, FL


Excuse us while we go weep in a corner. That’s right, Directioners, Niall Horan is no longer single!

Not that we hadn’t already figured that out ages ago, but the girl in question has finally confirmed it! And what did she say?

iheartonedirection: @BrittCooperMusic @NiallOfficial are you guys dating?
BrittCooperMusic: @iheartonedirection yeah 🙂

OMG! Not a girl of many words it seems, but that’s all the confirmation we need! Scapers, how long do you think this has been going on for? Since they took a little couple’s holiday to New York? Before that, maybe? Was her whole relationship with Harry just a ruse to keep her and Niall a secret?

Or maybe they finally confessed their feelings for each other when Niall was apparently in the hospital. Nothing like a little crisis to get the truth to come out!

Either way, we couldn’t be more excited for Niall! They’re so cute together. Click next for pictures of 1D’s newest couple!

Niall was woken up the next morning to the sound of his phone ringing. He sat up groggily and reached for it, being careful not to wake Brittany, who was sound asleep on top of him.

He wasn’t planning on answering the phone either, but one look at the caller display told him that he really didn’t have a choice in the matter.

“Hi mum,” he said, trying to be as quiet as possible. He rubbed his eyes, trying to wake up a bit.

“Niall!” she said, sounding somewhat distressed. “I just read on SugarScape that you have a new girlfriend! And what’s this about you being in the hospital? Are you okay?”

Niall sighed. He’d tried to keep that information from his family so that they wouldn’t worry, but of course everything made it to SugarScape. Which normally, wasn’t actually a problem. “Since when do you read SugarScape?” he asked with a laugh.

“Greg sent me the link,” she explained. “It doesn’t matter, you haven’t told your mother anything! Why were you in the hospital? Who’s this new girl?”

Niall sighed as his mom continued to grill him. He supposed it was his own fault for not keeping her in the loop, but he’d never quite been the type to run to her with every problem. “I was just dehydrayted. Didn’t drink enough water, fell down backstage, hit my head… they did some tests, but I’m okay. Don’t worry.”

Maura paused for a moment. Niall was worried she was going to begin yelling at him, as she’d done when he’d screwed up as a child. But she didn’t. “Are you sure you’re okay?” she asked him seriously.

“Yeah mum, I’m fine.”

“And you’ve been making sure to drink a lot of water before your shows since then?”

“Well… we haven’t actually had a show since that happened, but tonight, yes, I will,” he assured her, not bothering to say that the real reason he’d passed out was due to his own stupidity, and the fact that he was under so much stress.

“Good,” she said firmly. “Now tell me about this girl.” Her voice was softer now, and Niall could practically hear her smiling over the phone. She’d always loved to hear about his girlfriends, and had been eager for the day when he would start dating someone new.

Niall looked down at Brittany, who was still asleep. “She’s the opening act on our tour, she’s really funny, really cute, and I… I love her,” he said, slightly embarrassed to be admitting this to his mother.

“Are you talking about me?” Brittany mumbled, waking up slightly. She opened her tired eyes and looked up at Niall.

Niall mouthed the word “mum” as he pointed to his phone. Brittany nodded and got up to give him some privacy, kissing him on the cheek before she left.

“Is she there with you now?” Maura laughed, overhearing Brittany.

“Yeah, she was sleeping, I woke her up. She just walked out.”

“Well, you’ll have to bring her home to visit one day. Where does she live?”

Niall sighed. He hated thinking about the fact that he and Brittany lived on opposite sides of the world. “She lives in Texas.”

“Oh,” Maura replied, a little bit of shock in her voice. “That’s quite far.”

“Yeah, I know,” Niall sighed. “I don’t know how we’re going to manage when the tour’s over.”

“You’ll find a way,” Maura said confidently. “You might not get to see each other a lot, since I’m assuming she’s got a career of her own too.”

“Yeah, she does,” Niall nodded. “She’s really good, she’s probably gonna be big.”

“Well, you’ll still be able to talk on the phone and on Skype. Don’t let the distance get between the two of you,” she advised.

“Right, thanks mum,” Niall replied, not really knowing what else to say. It wasn’t like she could really understand what he was going through.

“Take care, sweetheart, I’ll see you when you come home in a week.”

“Bye mum, see you soon.”

Niall tossed his phone onto the couch as he stepped out of the room and went to join Brittany in the kitchenette. He rummaged around the small fridge in search of something to drink, but finally decided on a bottle of water.

“You called your mom?” Brittany cooed as she sat down beside him. “That’s so cute.”

Niall shook his head. “She called me,” he said, taking a sip of his water. “I guess she read about us on SugarScape. She also wanted to make sure I was still alive.”

Brittany bit her lip, somewhat nervous at the thought of Niall’s mother reading about their relationship online. “And?”

Niall shrugged. “She wants you to come to Ireland so she can meet you.”

Brittany looked at him with a little bit of relief. “I guess I’ll have to then, won’t I?”

“I guess you will,” Niall replied with a smile, kissing her on the forehead.


The show that night went off without a hitch. Despite that fact that all the boys were keeping a close eye on Niall to make sure he was okay. Normally this would have sort of annoyed him, but given the fact that he hadn’t felt close to all of the boys since the beginning of the tour, he let it slide. He was just happy to feel like they were part of a group again.

He stepped onto Brittany’s bus after the show and saw her sitting at the kitchen table. Without saying a word, he leaned over and kissed her deeply. Brittany wrapped her arms around him, responding to the kiss. When she pulled away, she gave Niall a look.

“What was that for?” she asked cheekily.

“I love you,” he said seriously, and kissed her once again, sliding his hand up the side of her t-shirt. “And since we’ve been back together, we haven’t…”

Brittany giggled, and allowed him to start kissing her again while his hand explored her body. She leaned back against the wall of the bus and pulled Niall in closer to her. They were in somewhat of an awkward position, but neither of them cared too much.

Niall moved his kisses from her mouth to her neck and Brittany dug her nails through his shirt. “Mmm, Niall, we should probably go to the bunk…”

“Yeah, probably,” he agreed, not moving from his position and continuing to kiss her.

Just as Brittany started to scrunch up Niall’s shirt in her hands in an effort to pull it off, the door to the bus opened. The broke apart quickly and looked back to see who was standing there.

It was Liam.

“Hey guys,” he said casually, as if he hadn’t just walked in on them. “The rest of the lads are drinking on the bus if you want to join.”

Niall rolled his eyes. He would have much rather spent the night having sex with his girlfriend. “Liam…” Niall pouted, giving him a look. “Can’t you see we’re busy?”

“Oh sorry,” Liam said sarcastically. “Next time I’ll be sure to knock in case the two of you are snogging in the kitchen.”

“Thank you,” Niall said irritably, moving in to kiss Brittany again.

But instead, she pushed him away. “Let’s go hang out on the bus with the other guys,” she said, looking at him.

Niall gave her a look. It wasn’t that he didn’t want to hang out with his bandmates, he just wanted to spend some time alone with Brittany before the tour was over and they were separated. Which was coming up quicker than he would have liked. “I’d rather spend my time with you,” Niall said.

Brittany looked at him, then looked back up at Liam. “Next time,” she said to him apologetically.

Liam shook his head, but couldn’t help smiling as he looked over at Niall. “Right, see you guys later, then. Have fun,” he laughed as he left, closing the door behind him.

“Now where were we?” Niall asked her seductively, moving in to kiss her. He pressed his lips against hers and moaned softly against her mouth.

“Are you sure you didn’t want to go hang out with the others?” Brittany asked in between kisses.

“I said I’d rather be here with you,” he replied, opening his eyes and looking at her.

Brittany rolled her eyes a little. “You’re just horny,” she laughed.

“No,” he said seriously, but then backtracked. “Well, yeah, but I’d rather spend the time we have left together instead of with everyone else. I see them all the time. But the tour’s over in two days and after that…”

He didn’t have to say anything more, Brittany understood. She didn’t want to leave him as much as he didn’t want to leave her, and though they’d still be able to talk to each other online and on the phone, it wouldn’t be the same as physically being together.

She gave him a quick kiss and smiled at him, standing up. “Come on,” she said, taking his hand. “Let’s go to the bunk.”

Niall grinned and quickly followed behind her. He hated thinking about the fact that soon they would be separated, but at least for the next hour, that was the last place his mind would be.
