Seeing @harryslittlekiwis post about if you acted like you were asleep while listening to Harry talk about how he felt about you got me inspired!! Here is kinda the same prompt but with Niall! ENJOY 💕
You remembered feeling Niall’s hand rubbing soothing circles on your back as you snuggled further into him before you drifted off to sleep. You also remembered hearing him humming softly in your ear in between little kisses to your head.
But when you found your eyes popping open what felt like hours later you were surprised to see Niall was still wide awake staring at what you assumed was the ceiling with his hand still making the circle pattern on your back. You just let out a sigh of content before your eyes closed again, not quite asleep yet but slowly getting there.
“How did I get so lucky?” You knew by the way his voice was barley even a whisper that he didn’t intend for you to hear him let alone answer. “Who would of thought dat a bloke like me would get an angel like you.” You knew he thought you were asleep by the way his voice never got above a whisper.
“Like ya just came wonderin into me life one day and now I can’t imagine what I’d be doin wit out ya.” His hand went from rubbing circles on your back to lightly stroking your hair. You just continued to keep your eyes closed as you listened to Niall’s voice tell you everything he wished he had the nerve to tell you while you were wide awake. “Ya just have no clue how much ya mean ta me darlin.” You had to fight the urge to smile knowing that he would be able to feel the movement since your cheek was pressed against his bare chest.
“One day ya probably gonna be my wife, that’s if you’ll have me as a husband.” His voice was filled with emotion and you knew by the way his heart was beating fast that he was slightly nervous. “I just want ta be the one that gets ta love ya forever and be da one ta give you a life ya deserve.” You really wished you could just kiss him but you knew by his tone that he wasn’t done thinking out loud.
You heard and felt him take a deep breath and let it out, “I can’t imagine anyone else I wanna do life with ta be honest. I see you having me kids, I’ve always imagined our girls havin your hair and my eyes and I will even let ya dress dem in frilly tings and bows all in their hair.” You had to squeeze your eyes a little to stop the few tears that were threatening to escape, you heard him laugh a little. “Can ya imagine a house full of little Horan’s runnin around? Imagine all da laughter and love in that house.” He let out a deep sigh as he pulled you closer to him.
“I love you,” you felt his lips on the top of your head and you could tell by his voice that he was going to fall asleep any moment. “I love ya so much dat it actually scares me a bit.” He was mumbling now and when you felt the motion of his hand in your hair getting slower you knew that his eyes were closed.
“Jus wanna make ya happy angel.” Was the last thing you heard him mumble before you finally knew he was asleep. His breathing was more even and his hand had stopped all movement in your hair and you could finally peek your eyes open and let yourself smile as you lifted your head a bit to get a better look at him.
“I love you too Niall,” you whispered as you gently leaned up and placed a light peck to his jaw making him stir just a bit but never open his eyes. You smiled as you rested your head back on his chest and closed your eyes for the last time that night. “You make me so happy.” You mumbled before you finally let sleep take over your body and you couldn’t have been more relaxed falling asleep in the arms of the man that loved you just as much as you loved him.
