Niall has been your best friend for as long as you could remember. You did a lot of things together and most of the time people would often mistake the both of you as a couple. You would just laugh it off, though. But deep inside the both of you would secretly wish that it was true.
It wasn’t too long until you had a boyfriend. He was very charming, kind and caring, and too perfect for words. He was like your prince charming. He treats you like royalty and is always there when you need him. You could tell that he really loves you just from the way he looks at you. He was crazy for you, but you still felt as if something was missing.
Lately, you noticed Niall had been very distant from you, he started hanging out with new friends and you noticed he was flirting with a lot of girls in your school. (which Niall doesn’t normally do because he was always too shy) You guys never had the chance to talk because he was either busy with “homework” or out with his new friends.
Prom came and you were really excited about it. Your perfect boyfriend was taking you to prom so why wouldn’t you be excited? You were there, dancing and chatting with your friends when the DJ put on slow music for a slow dance for couples. You couldn’t find your boyfriend anywhere so you decided to go and sit down. Just as you were about to sit down, you felt a tap on your shoulder, you thought it was your boyfriend, but it turns out to be Niall and he was asking you to dance with him. Of course you said yes mainly because he was your best friend and your boyfriend wasn’t there to dance with you.
"So how come you’ve been ignoring me for weeks? And all of a sudden just ask me to dance?"
"Sorry won’t make up for that."
"It’s just that…."
"Just what, Niall? Tell me, please?"
"You really want to know?"
"Of course I want to know!"
"It’s because I love you Y/N! And not just as a friend, I love you more than that, I love you more than your stupid perfect boyfriend does! And it hurts me a lot thinking that you’re out there and your heart’s beating for someone else, while I’m here hoping that you’ll feel the same way I’m feeling. I ignored you because I thought I might forget my feelings for you, but I knew I wouldn’t forget you that easily because every single thing I do reminds me of you. I know its stupid."
"I…..uh…I" you stuttered. That’s when you realized that this is what was missing, you didn’t need a perfect boyfriend, you needed Niall, but you couldn’t break your boyfriend’s heart.
"I guess we weren’t just meant for each other, huh?"
"No." you thought. How could he say that?
"I’m leaving for London tomorrow, Y/N. I’ll be continuing my studies there. And also to get my mind off things. And hopefully find a someone there who’s really for me. I’m going to miss you a lot. I’m sorry, I love you"
"One last favor?"
"Anything for you, love"
He came closer to you and you could feel his sweet breath on your lips. He leaned in closer and when his lips touched yours, you were definitely sure that he was the one you truly loved. You felt sparks fly when you kissed him, something that was missing when you kiss your boyfriend. After what seemed like forever he pulled away and walked away. You instantly felt tears stinging your eyes. That was the probably the most painful thing you have seen in your life, seeing the one you love walking away.
