The beginning of October 2025

I’m on the train. And I have a killer headache. I shouldn’t have drank so much. But I had fun. This morning, before I went to the station, I went to my parents house. I think my mum would never forgive me if she knew I was in the neighbourhood but didn’t stop by. I told her about me and Niall, at first she didn’t believe me but when I showed her a picture I took with him two days ago, she squealed. I smile at the thought. I texted Niall that I’ll be arriving in half an hour, fifteen minutes ago. But he has yet to answer. I start to get worried. Is he mad? He said he’d be there right? I sigh and put my phone away. I’ll find out when I arrive. Emma told me not to worry anymore. We’ll be fine. I take my e-reader out of my bag and start reading Pride and Prejudice again. I smile when I read about Jane and Mr. Bingley. I always thought I wanted a Mr. Darcy or a Heathcliff, but I’ve fallen for the cheesy romance of Jane and Bingley. Soon we’re at the station and I take my suitcase out of the train. I walk past customs and I start looking for Niall. I smile when I see him. His back turned to me. I start running. My footsteps must have given me away because he turns around and opens his arms, just in time for me to run into them. “I’m so sorry. I’m never doing this again. Promise.” I mutter into his chest. “It’s okay, you’re back now.” He hugs me tight and kisses my head. “Let’s go, before someone spots us.” Oh, right he’s a celebrity. I forgot. He takes my hand and we walk out together.
“Shall we go grocery shopping?” he asks when we’re driving towards his house, and I smile. “Yes, please. I still want to cook for you. Especially after the trick I pulled yesterday.” He takes my hand and kisses it. I giggle, it’s such a cute gesture. “Don’t worry about it. I knew it was a possibility. As long as you don’t pull it again. I’m fine with it.” “I won’t, I thought I was going home, but Antwerp isn’t my home. You are.” He smiles. Soon he parks his car and together we walk into the co-op. When I was at my parents’ house I asked my mum if I could take the Hungarian stuff I bought a couple of years ago. So I can make goulash-soup. It’s one of my favourite dishes and I hope Niall will like it to. I start taking all the ingredients out of the shelves and Niall follows me while I walk through the shop. “Do you have any ingredients so I can bake some bread?” I ask him. “No, I haven’t. Why?” “I need to make some bread for tonight. It’s served best with fresh bread.” “What are you going to make?” “Don’t be nosey, you’ll see tonight.” I smile at him. “Mean.” He huffs. I decide to also make one of my favourite non-bake desserts. It’s a mascarpone-cream with smashed Bastogne-cookies and fresh berries. It’s one of the most easy recipes I know, but I love it. “Do you need anything?” I ask him but he shakes his head. “Just take what you need for tonight. Tomorrow I’m taking you out to dinner.” He tells me and I smile at him. We stand in line for the register. “You don’t have to do that, you know that right?” “I know, I just want too. Plus this dinner was planned a long time ago.” I look up, question marks visible in my eyes. “We’re going out to dinner with the other guys.” “We’re, what?” I ask him. “Dearest, don’t worry. It’s fine. You know you had to meet them one day, right?” “I know, I just wish it wouldn’t be so soon. Wait, does that mean they know about us?” “Of course they do, they are my best friends. Emma knows about us too.” I hum, I can understand. We wait in silence and when it’s time to pay I fight him over who gets to. In the end I win. I smile. I like it when I win. “Are you mad?” He asks, when we’re back in the car. “No, why would I be?” “Because you went silent after I told you the guys know about us.” “Oh, no, it’s not that. I’m just nervous. What if they don’t like me?” “They will, don’t worry.” I smile at him. “We’re almost home. Prince will be happy to see you.” “I missed him too, I never leave him for more than a couple of hours. Now I haven’t seen him in more than a day. I’m glad you were with him. He really seems to like you.” “He does, doesn’t he? Oh, and I’m spoiling him already.” I raise my eyebrow. “How come?” “Well, I said he couldn’t come into my room right?” I hum. “ I couldn’t sleep last night and he was walking around the hallway. So I let him in and he slept in my bed.” I laugh. “Second night and you give in already?” “Yes, yes. I know. I can’t help it…” I lean over and kiss him on his cheek. “It’s cute.” I tell him. And soon after we drive up the drive way. “I’ll take the groceries and your luggage, you go and cuddle with Prince.” He tells me, gives me the keys and I walk up the drive way. I open the door to the living room and smile. “Hi Princey, missed me?” I ask him when I take him off of the couch. He starts purring and licking my face. Nice. “I missed you too. But Niall told me you’ve been a good boy. I’m so proud of you!” I kiss him on his head. “Mummy’s never leaving you again like that, though. You’ll get at least forty-eight hours notice.” “I’m glad.” I hear from the hallway. I look up and Niall’s standing there, my suitcase in his hands. “I’ll put your suitcase back in my room. Or if you don’t want to I can put it in another room?” “No, your room is fine.” I tell him. “I don’t get it, you went to Belgium because you wanted space, but now you act as if nothing happened.” He tells me and puts my suitcase down. I put Prince back on the sofa and stand up. I walk over to him and take his face into my hands, forcing him to look at me. “I thought I wanted space, but in hind-sight, all I did was run, because I’m scared of what I’m feeling for you.” I tell him and kiss him. It’s like our first kiss all over again. It’s soft and warm and I feel like we’re the only two people in the whole world. Because in that moment, all that matters is him, and how I feel about him. “I love you, my dearest.” He tells me when I let him go. “I love you, cupcake.” He takes my hand and pulls me with him towards his bedroom. “Unpack, now.” He tells me and sits on his bed. “Okay. What has gotten into you?” “I just want to make sure you’re not leaving again.” “I won’t, as long as you still want me, I’m here.” “If that’s the case, you can never leave.”
