You let out a scream as you ran around in the kitchen. Lucas turned the corner, laughing as he chased you. You panicked as you realized you hit a dead end. Lucas smirked as he inched closer to you. “Where you gonna go now, babe?”
You crossed your arm and gave a pout. “Not fair. You always win.” Lucas gave a chuckle as he placed his hands on your waist, pulling you closer against him. “I won a long time ago.”
Your cheeks blushed as you tilted your head up to connect your lips together with Lucas.
After your birthday last year, you vowed to get over Harry. You couldn’t pine after him anymore. It wasn’t fair to you or his marriage. Moving on from Harry was definitely a struggle and occasionally your mind would drift off to see how he was doing. You couldn’t lie and say you didn’t miss him because you did. Harry’s made no effort to contact you. You couldn’t blame him though. You knew that if he found out your feelings for him, your friendship would somehow fall apart and sure enough, it did.
You’ve been with Lucas for about three months now. You guys rekindled when you accidentally ran into him at the store. You apologized for never getting back in touch with him after your first date and the rest is history. Lucas was sweet. He was really sweet. Sometimes when you were with him, you didn’t think about Harry.
You pulled away from Lucas as your phone started to ring. Lucas let out a groan as he buried his face into the crook of your neck. “Ignore it.”
You chuckled as you pulled out your phone from your back pocket. You immediately knew who was calling without even having to look at the caller ID. “Niall’s being a little groomzilla. If I ignore him, I’m pretty sure he’ll find a way to hunt me down.”
Lucas rolled his eyes playfully before he pressed a kiss to your cheek. “It’s so hard when everyone wants to take my girl away from me” he joked before leaving you alone to answer the call.
You shook your head as you let out a chuckle before you answered your phone. “What’s wrong now, Niall?”
“The seating arrangement is all wrong!” Niall yelled from the other side, frustration laced in his voice.
You pulled your phone back from your ear, wincing at Niall’s booming voice. “Listen Horan, you better watch your tone with me or I won’t help with the wedding anymore!”
Niall gulped. “I’m sorry. Can you please help with the seating arrangement?” Niall begged into the phone. You smirked as you mentally praised yourself for having Niall wrapped around your finger. “I’ll be over soon.”
Since you and Harry cut ties, you and Niall have become closer. He was your blessing in disguise. You could never thank Niall enough for being there for you when you just really needed a shoulder to cry on. Niall managed to find a girl that was head over heels for him. He was absolutely in love with her. You would like to say you thought Niall marrying someone he’s only known for less than a year was absolutely crazy but you couldn’t. Emma was perfect for Niall. When you first met her, she welcomed you with open arms and you could see how much love Niall had for her. You knew in your heart that they were perfect for each other.
Niall sighed out of relief when he opened the door. His hair was a mess from the amount of times he’s run his hands through it out of frustration. “Niall, I see you’re looking as beautiful as ever.” you chuckled as you stepped into his apartment. You gave a quick hug to Emma who was sitting in the kitchen.
Niall quickly brought out a giant piece of paper. It was like some sort of blue print. It had circles drawn on it to represent the tables, a square to represent the dance floor, a rectangle to represent where the DJ was gonna be. It was the nightmare of every wedding. Niall sighed as he placed the paper in front of you. “We need your help deciding where to put who.” Niall explained.
Emma shrugged her shoulders as she took a sip of wine. “I say we let everyone sit where they’d like to. Who cares about assigned seating?” Niall placed his hand on his forehead before he smiled sweetly. “I told you, honey. If everyone decided to sit where they wanted to then it’ll be a big mess. Each table seats 10 people. What if someone wants to sit at a table that already has 10 people sitting there? They can’t just pull up a chair as they please cause that’ll mean one table will only have 9 guests. We are having assigned seats!”
You and Emma both looked at each other with wide eyes from Niall’s outburst. His breathing was hard as he stared at a sheet with everyone’s name on it. You cleared your throat, “I may need a glass of wine myself for this.”
You looked at who was next on the guest sheet. “Oh! Louis. So we can put him and Eleanor with Liam and Cheryl at table 7.” You quickly wrote Louis’s and Eleanor’s name down on the blue print. Niall nodded as he took a swig of his beer. “Make sure you write Freddie’s and Bear’s name down as well.” You nodded as you began to write. “Who’s next on the list?”
Emma grabbed the guest sheet. “Harry-” Emma paused, her eyes widening a bit as she cleared her throat. “Styles…” Niall and Emma stared at you with weary eyes. Emma’s met Harry a couple of times and she loved him. She thought he was the absolute gentleman and she couldn’t believe what happened between you and him. She never knew Harry was capable of such heartbreak.
Your eyes remained focused on the blue print. You tried to remain unfazed, “Ok. Let’s put him and Kimberly at table 7 as well.” You began to write Harry’s name down before Niall cleared his throat. “Actually Y/N. Kimberly isn’t attending the wedding.”
You sighed as you placed your pencil down. You smiled softly at Emma and Niall sitting in front of you. “It’s sweet of you guys to not invite her but I’ll be fine. Besides, I think Harry would be pretty upset knowing he couldn’t bring his own wife.”
Emma looked at her fiancé. Her eyes telling him to tell you the news they recently got. Niall nodded, he turned back to you. “Harry and Kimberly filed for a divorce last month, Y/N.” You let out a small gasp before Emma explained, “He told us two weeks ago when we met for dinner.”
Your eyes were staring at Harry’s name written down on the blue print in front of him. Your eyes softened as you thought about Harry was feeling all about this. For as long as you knew Harry, you knew how he looked down at getting a divorce. Coming from divorced parents himself, he always saw divorce as giving up. You quickly shook your head, grabbing your pencil again. “That’s unfortunate to hear. Who’s next on the list?”
Emma came around the kitchen counter and placed her hand on your arm softly. “Do you want to talk about it?” Niall nodded his head, reaching across the counter to place his hand on top of yours. “We’re here for you, Y/N.”
You smiled softly as you looked between the couple. “I’m fine, you guys. I promise.” You looked down. “It’s unfortunate Harry has to go through this. And I wish him nothing but the best.” You looked up at the couple. “Now who’s next?”
Emma and Niall exchanged a worried look before Niall sighed as he looked at the list. “Rory…Rory’s next.”
You sighed as you stared at your reflection in front of you. You ran your hands over your dress and smiled as you remembered the last time you wore this dress.
You thanked Harry as he handed you a glass of punch. Harry sat down on the chair next to you as he took in the scene around him. You and Harry went back to Holmes Chapel to celebrate Anne’s birthday. The backyard was filled with family and friends. The sun was about to set, fairy lights hung and music playing in the background. You laughed as you saw the younger kids dancing on the dance floor in the middle of the yard. Harry grabbed your hand and placed a gentle kiss on top of it. “I’m really happy you’re here, Y/N.”
You could feel your cheeks burning slightly as your eyes softened. “Of course, H. I would never miss Anne’s birthday. I adore her.”
Harry’s mouth opened to say something before one of your favorite songs bounced off the speakers. Harry instantly noticed the way your eyes sparkled and your smile widened as the “Photograph” started to play. Harry stood up and held his hand out to you. “May I have this dance?”
You giggled as you stood up, grabbing Harry’s hand. He led the two of you to the middle of the dance floor. You placed your arms around his neck as he placed his around your waist. Harry’s eyes were staring at you intently. “Have I told you how beautiful you look tonight?” Harry whispered. You smiled as you looked down at your feet. “Shut up you goof.”
Harry smiled, placing his hand on your chin, tilting your head to look up at him. “You’re gorgeous, Y/N.”
You were interrupted by your thoughts as Lucas knocked on your door. “Are you ready, babe?” You grabbed your purse before you looked at your reflection once again. “Ready.” you whispered.
As the car was taking you and Lucas to where Niall’s and Emma’s rehearsal dinner was being held, your foot was tapping anxiously. You could feel your palms becoming sweaty as you inched closer and closer to the restaurant. Lucas placed his hand on your thigh. “Are you alright?”
You smiled nervously while shaking your head. “I’m fine.”
You weren’t. In a couple of minutes, you were going to be in the same room as Harry. You were going to finally see him after a year of cutting ties with each other. Would he say something to you? Should you say something to him? Was he going to bring up what happened that night? Is he going to talk about Kimberly?
As the car halted outside of the restaurant, you could feel yourself becoming nauseous. The restaurant looked great. It was closed for the event. You smiled at the small decorations scattered around the room. There were pictures of Niall and Emma throughout their relationship. Lucas gently kissed your cheek, “Good call on the photos.”
You let out a small shrug as you smiled. A slightly tipsy Niall and a sober Emma walked up to you and Lucas.
“Y/N!” the couple to be shouted, pulling you into a hug. You laughed as you hugged both of them. Emma leaned back. “Oh Y/N. We can’t thank you enough for helping with everything. I can sleep well tonight knowing everything is taken care of because of you.”
Niall nodded his head rapidly. “You were pretty much our wedding planner. Please. Let us pay you a little something for all the handwork you did.” He began to grab his wallet out of his pocket. You swatted at Niall’s arm, giving them a scowl.
“No! I could never take your money!” Niall was about to argue before you continued. “Niall, you’ve helped me so much for the past year. I can’t thank you enough. So think of this as me repaying you.” Niall’s eyes softened. He pulled you into another hug. “I told you everything would get better eventually” he whispered as he recalled the words he would say to you repeatedly during your falling out with Harry. You smiled as you squeezed Niall tighter in the hug. You pulled away and gave another hug to Emma.
The couple promised to meet with you and Lucas again before they went around to mingle with all of their friends and family. Lucas placed his hand on your waist. “I’m going to get us something to drink.” He said before he placed a kiss on your cheek and walking away.
As soon as Lucas walked away, you suddenly felt cold. You could feel eyes burning at the back of your head. You turned around slowly to see Harry standing across the room. He was staring at you with sadness in his eyes. You let out a shiver as it was the same look he gave you that night. You shook your head as you turned back around. You quickly walked away, wanting to get as far as you possibly could. You stepped out onto the restaurant patio. You let out a deep breath as you ran your hand through your hair.
You spun around to see Harry standing in front of you. You closed your eyes briefly, “Harry.”
Harry’s eyes softened as he took you in. “It’s so nice to see you again. You look beautiful.” You shook your head. You quickly murmured, “I can’t do this” before you pushed past Harry to go back inside.
“Are you happy?”
You halted as you turned back around. “What?”
Harry walked closer. “With him? Are you happy?” You looked at the ground before Harry continued, “Cause I’m a bloody mess without you.”
Your eyes filled with anger as you stepped closer to Harry. You poked him in the chest. “No! You can’t say things like that! You’re married!” Harry grabbed your hand, “I filed for a divorce!” Harry sighed as he glanced down before his eyes met yours. “What happened that night absolutely wrecked me, Y/N. For the rest of my life, I will always regret that night. I missed your fucking birthday, Y/N. I’ve never felt so disgusted with myself. I tried moving on. I tried being the best husband I could possibly could to Kimberly but I couldn’t. You! You were on my mind constantly! I couldn’t do a single thing without thinking about you! All I could see was you crying. All I could see was how much I hurt you. I will never be able to forgive myself. But Y/N. I fucking love you.”
By the end of Harry’s speech, the two of you had tears in your eyes. Harry wiped your eyes before he whispered, “I love you, Y/N.”
Harry’s eyes glanced between your eyes and lips. Suddenly he placed his lips on yours.

For people going on about how Dan Wootton actually knows what he’s talking about:
28 January 2016 - all but Niall left Modest
That will be upsetting news for NIALL HORAN, LIAM PAYNE and LOUIS TOMLINSON who are all remaining loyal to Modest.
23 May 2016 - a month before the first “leak” of Harry signing with Columbia
A 1D insider explained: “It was obvious from day one that Harry wouldn’t stay with Simon Cowell, Syco or a Sony label.
1 June 2016 - a couple of weeks before Liam announced his deal with Capitol UK
My source explained: “Louis is very interested in the world of TV.“He is considering opportunities both in front of the camera, including documentaries, and behind-the-scenes as a producer.“He is still going to be involved in music through his record company and was recently back in the studio writing. But it’s unlikely he’ll be recently a solo record in the near future.”
31 July 2016 - a bit over a month before Niall signed with Capitol
Simon isn’t planning on letting the same thing happening with NIALL HORAN, who I recently revealed is just weeks away from putting pen to paper on a solo deal with Syco.
fia hadn’t seen niall in years. the boy got famous and up and left her in little old mullingar. she didn’t blame him. the first chance she got, fia left town, too. four years later they were both back in town. but can they continue their friendship where they left off or were there too many things left unsaid?
a post-1d niall / childhood best friend fia one shot based on this post
Hey just saw your post about 28,Wellington and Belfast. Could you explain what exactly happened in Belfast? And when did it happen? Ive been out of the fandom for about 4 years now so im lost lmao
Hello!! Exactly what happened? No i cannot tell you, because none of us know the truth.. it was v shady and this is what we do know and some theories:
It was during the OTRA tour 2015, Belfast. People were at the concert, the opening act ended and then someone with like a suit went on-stage and read the official written announcement that the concert was cancelled because Liam was ill , but not too serious to be at the hospital, but also unable to perform.
“Unfortunately, the show tonight has been cancelled, as Liam has been taken ill. And while it is not serious, he is unable to perform tonight. A further statement will be made in the morning.”
Well, it wouldn’t be shady if it was a normal band with competent managers but it IS 1d, and we were all wondering what the fuck was going on behind the stage… because it was the first show cancelled EVER in 5 years and we had days were Harry was so sick he would go backtage to throw up and then come back, Niall with a recent knee surgery was fucking performing.. like. It was shady AF. And then at night they fucking released the Perfect MV, Louis tweeted the link:
Next day: Magically, out of fucking nowhere an EP of Perfect featured a new never ever in life ever ever ever heard called HOME. And Louis tweeted (again) lyrics to the song and then the house emoji. And the lyrics are v gay. Gay anthem level.
They also gave a few radio interviews to do damage control, basically saying that Liam had diarrhea. Yes. The theories say that: that day Louis and Harry found out that they went through with babygate (a pre-written article about the sex, name and weight of the supposedly baby daughter came out just hours before the concert was cancelled) and they put the foot down and left. Or had a meltdown and left. Other’s say that it had something to do with Sophiam ending. But sadly, no one really knows what the fuck happened. So that’s it :) if you have any other question please let me know!
Singer Niall, 24, admitted that the stunning movie star - who is the daughter of singer Phil Collins - would be his “dream celebrity date” during a recent interview with an Irish radio station.
Spin South West radio hosts Ed and Meghann asked the star: “Name one girl you would love to date.”
To which he replied: “Lily Collins.”
Lily, 28, seemed to be happy with his answer as she went on to follow the singer on Instagram after the radio chat.
The To The Bone star then proceeded to like several of Niall’s pictures, something that was instantly noticed by the pair’s followers.
Fans began speculating that the actress was trying to get the singer’s attention as one pointed out: “Lily Collins has been liking nearly ever picture of Niall’s so what I’d like to know is why haven’t they started dating yet (sic).”
While another stated: “I always see Niall and Lily Collins liking each other’s pictures, can they like get together.”
Niall has previously revealed some of his other celebrity crushes over the years and was believed to have had brief romances with the likes of Selena Gomez, Ellie Goulding Demi Lovato and model Barbara Palvin.
While Lily has previously dated actors Taylor Lautner, Zac Efron and Jamie Campbell Bower.
Lily was most recently pictured enjoying a romantic trip in Italy with former classmate Jason Vahn in July, but the pair have not been spotted together in recent weeks.
