Electra's POV:

2 months later. Early September.

I glanced down at my time table, then up again, looking down the hallway. I looked from left to right, and decided I'd take the path outside. I was currently at Stanford University. I was trying to decide what to study, so I was kind of taking different courses just to experiment and see what I'd like. The school was beautiful, and the students were extremely nice, it was just that I was having a hard time making new friends. I was the odd one out. The quiet one. No one really tried to get close or talk to me. I think it was because Niall and I had just broken up only 2 months ago, and I was having a hard time.

I sighed. I had to get to the other side of the school in 7 minutes for my next class, and then I had nothing for the rest of the day. It was already 2:03 in the afternoon.

Looking around, there weren't many people around. They were either in a class, or didn't have anything at the moment.

Stanford really was great, and I'd be way more enthusiastic and excited to be here, but I just felt as if I couldn't be happy; knowing I couldn't celebrate with the guy who turned out to love me, and I realized after we broke up, that I loved him too.

I pushed open the doors to the school, and started walking down the pathway. There were trees covering the ground. Not too many, not too little. It was perfect. Just how I imagined it all these years.

My phone started ringing, as I looked down, pulling it out of my shoulder bag. I pressed the green button, and then pushed it to my ear.


"Hi, sweetheart,"

"Hi mom," I grinned. "How's Devynlynn?"

"She's fine. She's sleeping right now."

Since I was busy with my studies, I got my mom to babysit most of the time. Riley, Lindsay, David or Collin couldn't, since they were in college/university as well. Riley in her second year, the rest of us in our first. Collin and Lindsay ended up going to the University of Southern California, and David went to UC San Diego.

"That's good. What are you doing?" I questioned, looking at the entrance to my left I was passing, checking to make sure I didn't have to enter yet.

"I'm just flipping through the channels—Oh look, it's the boys!"

"Which boys?" I raised my eyebrows as if she could see me.

"One Direction, of course," She answered. I paused, trying to hear through the phone. "Here, I'll let you listen." My mom then stopped talking, and I heard the TV blaring into my ear.

"So boys, welcome back to California. You were only here two months ago. What's it like to be back, promoting your new album?" The interviewer asked. I felt my stomach drop. They were back..?

"It's always lovely to be here. The weather is perfect, the beaches are beautiful. Not to mention the babes in bikinis." Harry's voice came out, him sounding cheeky. I could just see his smile, which made me smile.

"Harry, you idiot, we have girlfriends." Louis chuckled, and it sounded like he hit him playfully.

"Not all of you have girlfriends." The interviewer and I said at the exact same time, as I frowned. There was an awkward silence, and I thought my mom had shut off the TV (That's how quiet it was) but she hadn't.

"Niall.. You and Electra broke up recently. How long ago?"

There was another pause, and then someone took a deep breath. "Um, yeah, we did. I don't really want to talk about it." The familiar Irish accent spoke.

"I'm sorry sweetheart," The interviewer said, sounding guilty.

"No," Niall said, sounding genially like he didn't care, which broke my heart just a bit. "It's alright. I'm.. I'm fine."

The voices stopped, and there was a pause. "El..?" My mom breathed quietly.

I closed my eyes, and stopped walking for a second.

"Electra, I'm so sorry, I didn't think they would talk about it.."

"It's fine mom. I'm fine." I opened my eyes again.

"Okay.. well.. it was rerun in case you wanted to know." She explained.

There was something inside of me that was hoping the boys were still here, but then most of me wanted them to be gone for good. I held back my tears.

"Thanks, mom. I better go now. I'm going to be late. I'll be home soon." I said, ready to hang up without even waiting for her to say goodbye.

"Alright. I love you, Electra. Be safe," She said, like any mother would.

"Yeah," I nodded. "I love you too." With that, I hung up, and stopped walking again.

I raked my hand through my hair, sighing quietly. My eyes were hurting. A sign that showed before I was going to cry. I blinked, forcing the tears back, and then kept walking.

It was hard for me to think that Niall just moved on that easily. But then again, he sounded upset on the interview and didn't want to talk about it.

I passed a couple on the path sitting by a tree, cuddling. She was in between his legs, and he had his arms wrapped around her tightly, looking as if he wouldn't ever let her go. I couldn't help but stare at them, and forced myself to tear my eyes away.

"I'll never forget you Electra. You're different than every other fan." He said quietly.

"People change and meet others, Niall," I muttered. He paused.

"Just remember. Goodbye's aren't forever." He said, as I pulled away from the hug.

He looked at me. I had tears in my eyes as I gave him a small smile.

"Sometimes they are..." I whispered. He said nothing back.

I shook my head, trying to get the memory out. I walked quicker, passing the couple. I hadn't realized how slow I was walking.

It was horrible. I didn't want to remember everything. All the memories I had with him. I couldn't remember them. It was bad enough I was alone, no friends, no family with me to go through this anymore, since we were all so busy in school.

I guess this was the point where I had to say goodbye to my 'childhood', if you must, and grow up. Take care of Devyn..

I tilted my head up to look at him. He had tears in his own eyes.

"I'm never going to say goodbye, El." He said, his voice cracking at the end.

I turned around fully to him, making his arms leave my stomach and to my back.

I threw my arms around him, and cried. He held onto me.

"I'm sorry.. I'm so sorry.." He kept mumbling, and then would kiss my cheek.

We stood for a few minutes, and I looked at him. He grinned sadly, as he wiped his own eyes, and then my tears.

I shivered, as it felt like I could feel his touch again. His lips on my cheek. His thumb removing the tears from my face. His arms wrapped around my waist.

"N-Niall.." I sulked, looking up at him. Tears stained his face too, as he pressed my head gently back onto his chest.

"Sh.." He stroked my hair, running his fingers through it. I felt him shaking, and occasionally whimpering.

"I'm so sorry.." He whispered into my hair, tightening his grip on me. I shook my head.

"Don't be sorry..." I choked out, burying my face deeper into him.

"I'm not going to leave you, Electra. Listen to me, okay?" He sobbed, and forced me to look into his eyes.

"But you did leave me," I whispered to myself, staring at the ground.

"Why did you leave me?!" I suddenly shouted, causing people around to look at me as if I were crazy. I ignore the looks, and continued walking.

He didn't leave you.. YOU left him.

As soon as everyone stopped counting and the ball dropped, his lips were on mine.

My eyes widened, as I stared at him. His were shut, and his strong grip wouldn't let me pull away.

I had major butterflies in my stomach, and it felt like someone just shocked me. I had goose bumps all over my body as I shivered.

I was frozen with my arms by my side, and him still kissing me. He broke away after a good 10 seconds, and I tried not to look like a loser as I gasped for my breath; where he looked fine.

I reached up, touching my lips gently. I remembered the night. It was so perfect. People cheering in the distance, the fireworks going off, under the stars. He was so perfect.

And that night when he fought that guy because he was being rude to me.

He was.. absolutely incredible..

Okay, okay...

No matter how much I seem to be pushing him away, I have to say

I, Electra Andrews..

Have a crush on Niall Horan.

That day at school. When I finally realized I liked him. No, I loved him back then, but I was too stupid to realize it.

I thought it was just a little crush. He thought he had a little crush on me. When truth was, we both loved each other.

We.. we were such idiots.

I chuckled out loud, wiping away a tear I didn't feel escape.

Pausing, I looked at our hands. "You know, 8 months ago, I never would've guessed I'd end up like this."

"Like what?" Niall scooted closer to me, studying my face. I continued staring at our hands.

"Like.. knowing One Direction, my all time favorite band, personally. Them knowing who I am. Getting kicked out of my own home. Going to New Years parties. Being on the news."

".. Knowing you," I said, quieter than all of the rest of the things I listed. I felt Niall's eyes on me still, as he waited for me to continue.

"And you know what the crazy part is?" I asked, looking at him. He stared into my eyes, as I stared into his. I shook my head lightly. "...I don't regret any of it," I whispered, my eyes flickering to the ground, and back to his.

His straight lips slowly turned into a happy smile. He let go of my hand, and wrapped his arm around my waist, as I snuggled into him, smiling happily.

Congrats, Electra. You finally found your Prince.

And I lost him.. just like that..

I stopped walking, looking up. I took in my surroundings. There was a tree to my right, and around it were some rocks where you could just sit on them. Between the rocks and tree, there was a few feet; enough space for people to walk around. The entrance to the school was to my right beside me. To my next class.

I frowned, and started opening the door when I heard something.

"You looked right at me, but you didn't even see me?"

Turning slowly back to the tree and rocks area, there was no one there. Out of nowhere, the same blonde hair blue eyed boy slid out of the tree in a black tuxedo with a bow tie. It took me a few moments to register what had just happened.

"Niall, what are you doing here?" I wiped at my cheeks, removing any sign that I was crying.

He shrugged, taking a few steps closer to me. "I think I should ask you the same thing." He said in his same Irish accent. It was almost too good to be true. "I was here in California, and you didn't even bother coming to see me." He said, jokingly.

"What makes you think I'd want to see you?" I glared at him, turning back to the doors. I reached to open it, but he grabbed my hand, spinning me around.

"It was a joke, El-"

"Do not call me that." I said harshly, staring up into his blue eyes.

"Electra," He corrected himself. "It was a joke. I understand completely that you wouldn't ever want to see me again, after what I did. Lying to you. And you were right. When I kissed Demi, it wasn't an accident, it was a choice." Owch. I think my heart just broke a bit more. "But that doesn't mean it was a right choice. It was the most ridiculously, stupid thing I've ever done. I don't even know how to apologize because we were dating and you gave me all your trust that I wouldn't cheat, and I did the same with you. I trusted that you wouldn't do anything, but then there I went and kissed her."

I frowned, tugging my hand from his. "Why did you kiss her?"

"I.. I don't know. I think it's because I was always in love with her before I met you, and then I finally got to see her in real life." Niall said, looking down at the ground.

My eyes scanned his face. He looked sad and guilty. It made me feel horrible.

No, Electra, he deserves it.

I took a deep breath. "What is it you want, Niall?"

"What do I want?" He looked up again, staring down into my brown orbs. "I want you, Electra. I want you to be mine again, and we can make this all right. I just want another chance for me to prove to you that I won't ever leave you again nor do something stupid."

"You're stupid to think I'd give you another chance," I said, turning to the doors again. "I have to go to class now. Good luck in life. The life of fortune and fame,"

Opening the doors, I took a step in, but then he said something.

"It's not fortune and fame unless you're in it."

I froze, and turned back again. "What's that supposed to mean?" I then noticed he was gone. He wasn't even there anymore. Glancing around confused, I slowly started walking away from the doors, and towards the tree.

"It means my life isn't any good unless you're there with me. There's no point in doing what I love unless someone is there to do it with me. You are my fortune, you're everything I cherish and need." His voice came from what seemed like everywhere around me.

"Before we met each other, when I was Noah, I didn't know what love was. But then when I saw you, it was like love at first sight. I just denied it. I couldn't believe I actually liked a fan. But I was wrong. I didn't like you." He continued on. I felt my eyes building with water, and what he said hurt my chest. He didn't like me.

I closed my eyes for a second, listening for his voice.

"I loved you." He paused. "And I still do."

Opening my eyes again, I looked up, and saw him standing on a tree branch in the tree. He casually leaned against the trunk, looking down at me. He jumped down again, landing in front of me. Suddenly, I heard guitar strumming. I had no idea where it was coming from, but it didn't matter once Niall began singing right in front of me.

This time, this place
Misused, mistakes
Too long, too late
Who was I to make you wait?

Just one chance, just one breath
Just in case there's just one left
Cause you know
You know, you know

That I love you, I have loved you all along
And I miss you, been far away for far too long
I keep dreaming you'll be with me and you'll never go
Stop breathing if I don't see you anymore

I stared at him, as he stopped singing for a moment and the guitar kept going. Then, Niall knelt down before me. I felt my eyes widen slightly, as I just watched him. But he didn't do what I thought he was going to do. He continued singing.

On my knees, I'll ask
Last chance for one last dance

He extended his hand to me, as I looked at it.

Cause with you I'd withstand
All of hell to hold your hand

I took his hand, hesitantly, and he stood back up properly. And then, before I knew what was happening, he started dancing with me. I gently, and confusedly, placed my free hand on his shoulder, as his other hand was on my waist.

I'd give it all, I'd give for us
Give anything but I won't give up
Cause you know
You know, you know

That I love you, I have loved you all a long
And I miss you, been far away for far too long
I keep dreaming you'll be with me and you'll never go
Stop breathing if I don't see you anymore

I followed his step, as if he were a professional dancer and knew all the steps, whereas I didn't really know what to do. He smiled as I started getting a hang of it. We glided across the ground together.

But you know
You know, you know

I wanted
I wanted you to stay
Cause I needed
I need to hear you say

I love you, I have loved you all along
And I forgive you for being away for far too long
So keep breathing cause I'm not leaving you anymore
Believe it, hold on to me, never let me go

Keep breathing cause I'm not leaving you anymore
Believe it, hold on to me, never let me go
Hold on to me, never let me go
Hold on to me, never let me go

It felt like everything stopped. Niall singing, us dancing and the guitar.

We both stared at each other. Niall waited for me to say something, but I didn't quite know what to say. He gulped, looking down as we remained in our dance position.

"I wrote that for you while the band was writing another song. I couldn't concentrate on anything." He said slowly. I just stared at him in response as he looked back up.

"So um.. Well?" He asked carefully, eyeing me. "What do you say?"

"I say.." I spoke quietly, pausing. "I love you; I have loved you all along. And I forgive you for being away for far too long. So keep breathing because I'm not leaving you anymore. Believe it, hold on to me, never let me go." I said softly, quoting his song.

Niall slowly smiled, and wrapped his arms around me tightly. "I'm so sorry about everything. I will hold on to you and I promise to never let you go." He said, and then pulled away, attacking my face with kisses.

I chuckled, smiling brightly up at him.

"I have a surprise," He said, removing his hands from me and into his jacket pockets.

"That wasn't the surprise?" I questioned, raising my eyebrows at him. He smiled sheepishly, then slowly bent down. What was he doing...?

"Oh my god," I gasped, watching as he knelt in front of me on one knee.

Then, from behind the rocks, stood up Zayn, Louis, Harry, Liam and Sandy; the guitarist.

Louis and Harry were holding a sign that said "Will", and Liam and Zayn held one that said "You".

I looked down at Niall again. He smiled, taking out a small blue box, and opened it; revealing a silver ring. "Electra Andrews, marry me?"

I covered my mouth with both of my hands. "Oh my god," I said, for the second time within a minute. "Are you serious?"

He nodded. "I know we're young and only 19 but I also know that I want to spend the rest of my life with you and Devyn. I want to make every day up to you until we die because of what I did. I need you in my life. I love you."

He stared up at me, waiting for my response. I felt like I couldn't breathe, I couldn't talk. It was a moment in my life where I was actually speechless.

Nodding, I removed my hands from my mouth, tears falling from my eyes. "Yes, of course!" I choked out, laughing a little at my pathetic answer, as he slid the ring onto my finger.

Niall stood up, throwing the box to the aside, and picked me up; spinning us around. The boys were cheering and clapping.

He finally put me down again, and gently placed his hands on either side of my face; then leaned in, kissing me passionately. I kissed him back, placing one of my hands on his. His lips were warm against mine, giving me that same sensation I got when we kissed for the first time. It was absolutely perfect. When we drawled away, he pressed his forehead on mine.

"I love you, my Queen," Niall whispered.

I smiled, nodding with tears streaming down my cheeks. "I love you, too,"

The boys had walked over to us, which broke Niall and I's moment, but I didn't mind too much as I threw my arms around them.

"I love you guys so much! Thank you!" I exclaimed, smiling. I hugged all of the boys individually.

"Lou," I said, as I squeezed Louis.

"Sweetheart," He chuckled.

"Thanks so much for everything."

"It was my pleasure. Congrats." Louis smiled as we pulled away. I smiled.

"Thank you."

Harry and I were last to hug. I practically jumped into his arms.

"Hazza!" I cried, hugging him tightly.

"El!" He chuckled in his deep voice. I pulled away, smiling at him.

"You are the absolute best. Thanks for helping with this," I motioned around us, grinning at him.

"Don't thank me. It was all Niall's idea. We just helped." He smiled back.

I smiled. "You better do the same with Lindsay, if you know what I mean," I punched him lightly on the arm.

Harry smiled, and nodded. "Congrats on it all. 'Ey, Irish!" He waved at Niall, grabbing his attention. "I better be best man!"

"No, I'm being best man!" Liam shouted.

"Uh, I don't think so, boys. Niall obviously loves me most," Zayn interrupted.

Louis scoffed. "I'm his best friend!"

"I have a bromance with him. Why wouldn't he choose me?" Liam questioned. Soon, they were all arguing.

Laughing, I looked at Niall, who was just smiling at me, looking happy as ever. His eyes bright and blue again.

Well then. I guess you can't really call him your Prince anymore.

Why the hell not?

Because, you're his Queen. You know what that means?

Not really.

You'll have to tell yourself then, because you know, Electra. Just think deep down.

The voice in my head chuckled, and then disappeared, saying nothing. Instead of the other voice telling me, I thought on my own..

Congrats, Electra. You finally found your King.

I paused, as everything went quiet. Everyone was still arguing and talking, but I blanked them out.


I finally got my King, who was there all along.

I smiled at Niall, and he easily did the duty to smile back.
