Dedicated to troyesingforme because it’s her birthday (even if it is a lil late haha) and because she wants a second part of ‘Just a Little Bit of Your Heart’(if you haven’t read it find it under narryafblog tag!). Here you go Hun! :)
Pages: don’t know. Again haha
That’s how long it’s been since Niall and Harry got together in Australia after the whole NiallandMelissa fiasco. Five long years of being a happy couple. They’ve had their ups and downs but they’ve gotten through everything. Wether it’s together or with the help of the other boys. They’ve stuck through everything.
Harry honestly couldn’t be any happier. He has everything he’s wanted. He smiles as Niall struggles to reach the top of the cupboard. He snorts when Niall nearly reaches and makes a few boxes fall to the floor.
“Instead of laughing, you should really help me.” The blond grumbles under his breath as he picks up the nearly empty boxes from the floor.
“Alright, don’t get your knickers in a twist, love.” Harry pecks his cheek and uses the small steps to reach properly to organize the boxes better. “All set.” Harry says as he closes the steps and stores them away. He turns around but Niall isn’t there.
He pouts to himself and looks for him. He finds him in the kitchen humming quietly as he starts preparing lunch. Harry recognizes the song as ‘Summer Love.’ Harry smiles and quietly sits on the island of the kitchen, enjoying Niall’s humming.
“I know you’re there Harry.” Niall turns around with a smile.
“How’d you know I was here?” He pouts like a child.
“You breathe a little loudly when you try to sneak up on me.” Niall chuckles softly and places a kiss on Harry’s cheek.
“Wait, is that why you’re never really scared when I sneak up on you?”
Niall looks a little guilty, faking to be scared when Harry tries to scare him. His boyfriend is just too clumsy and trips over his own two feet to properly scare Niall. “I’m sorry, Haz. But I can hear you a mile away.” He wraps his arms around Harry’s torso and kisses Harry on the lips.
Harry huffs wrapping his arms around Niall’s shoulders. “I love you.”
“Love you, too.” Niall mumbles and pecks Harry’s jaw before giving his full attention to the food in front of him.
After dinner, the couples decides to sit down and watch t.v. to relax for the night. They’re cuddled up on the couch watching a rom-com. Harry isn’t paying much attention to the movie, opting to watch Niall instead. It’s something he’s always done during their relationship. Heck, way before that. He was just subtle.
“Stop staring, you weirdo.” Niall mumbles a blush forming on his cheeks as he hides his face in Harry’s neck.
Harry smiles and kisses the top of his boyfriends head. “You’re too beautiful to not look at.”
Niall groans. “You’re such a sap.” He squeezes Harry’s hip lovingly and continues to watch the movie. During the middle of the movie there is a desperate knock on the door.
Harry loosens his hold on Niall and gets up to answer the door. An exasperated Louis is standing there with four year old Lily half asleep in his arms with an exasperated look in his face.
“Can you please take care of her for the night? I need to take El to the hospital, she’s been sick all night. Please, Harry.”
“Alright, Lou. Calm down. We’ll take care of her.” He gently takes Lily from Louis’ arms and Niall comes behind him to grab the overnight bag. “Go. She’s in good hands you know it.”
“Thanks, lads. I owe you one.” He quickly kisses Lily’s head and rushes to the car.
“Do you think she’ll last a minute awake?” Niall asks closing the door. “She’s half asleep and looks like she could be out cold any second.”
“Don’t think so.” He tells his boyfriend and goes to sit on the couch. He starts to hum a little song and within seconds Lily is fast asleep.
“I got her.” Niall tells him as he carefully picks Lily up in his arms. He takes her upstairs to their master bedroom and places her in the middle of the bed. He gently strokes her dark hair and quietly walk downstairs. “She’s settled in.” He sits next to Harry. “How early do you think she’ll wake up?”
Harry hums. “Who knows? Late I hope.” He wraps his arm around Niall’s shoulders and kisses the blondes head.
The couple wakes up to Lily calling both of them. She constantly pokes Harry’s arm whilst calling for Uncle Niall. Harry is the first to wake up from the two which doesn’t surprise him one bit knowing Niall could sleep until three in the afternoon.
“Alright, Lils. I’m up.” He yawns rubbing his eyes. He scoops the two year old in his arms and carries her downstairs to prepare breakfast. He sets her down on the floor with a couple of toys to keep her entertained while he cooks porridge for her and a proper English breakfast for him and Niall.
When the porridge is done he sets it aside to cool off and continues cooking while keeping an eye on Lily. Harry hears heavy footsteps coming downstairs. He turns slightly and smiles at Niall’s matted hair and sleepy eyes.
Niall grumbles something under his breath before kissing Harry’s cheek and squeezing his hip. Niall sits on the floor across from Lily and starts to play with her. Harry smiles fondly and finishes cooking.
After breakfast the couple agrees to take Lily to the nearby park. They get ready and head out the door, the little girl in between them wanting to hold both of her uncles hands. Once they reach the park Lily runs off to the playground. Niall and Harry sit near by watching Lily play and interact with the other children.
“Is that your daughter?” A kind woman who is sitting in the bench next to theirs asks them.
“Oh, no. She’s our niece.” Harry smiles kindly, Niall does the same.
“Oh!” The woman’s cheeks flush. “I’m sorry. I just thought she was yours. You make a lovely couple.”
“Thank you.” Harry smiles once again but it fades when he sees Lily running towards them with tears down her cheek.
Niall quickly meets her half way and bends unfront of her. “What’s wrong, flower?” He asks as he tucks a strand of hair behind her ear.
“I got a boo.” She sniffs, her clear blue eyes shinning with unshed tears. She shows Niall her hands where there are tiny scrapes and tiny pebbles sticking on her skin.
Niall picks her up and sits down next to Harry, sitting Lily in his lap. He gently cleans the area, with Harry’s help, of course, with water. Harry luckily finds plasters and places them on her hands. “There. Good as new.”
Lily smiles brightly and jumps down from Niall’s lap to join the other kids again. “We make a pretty good team, if I do say so myself.” Niall chuckles resting his head on Harry’s shoulder.
“Guess we do, Ni.” Harry smiles.
Harry is chewing on his bottom lip as he scans the display of silver bands. He’s planning on, finally, proposing to Niall. He knows they are both ready to take this next step.
Harry knows because Niall accidentaly left the browser on his laptop open on wedding band pictures. And that’s all it took for him to get up and search for the perfect ring. He has been searching for days now but nothing is good enough for Niall. He feels like he will never find the right ring.
“Hello there, love. You look a little troubled.” The lady behind the counter says and Harry looks up to see that she is very very pregnant. “Do you need some help?”
Harry rubs his temples while sighing. “I’m planning on proposing to my boyfriend and I need to find the perfect ring but so far I’ve got nothing.” He sighs again as he looks at her helplessly.
“I think I’ve got the thing just for you. Wait right here.” Harry watches as the woman leaves and minutes later comes back with a flat, black velvet box. “We’ve had this stashed away for a while now because nobody seemes to buy it, but I’ve a feeling he, and you, will love it.” She opens the box and Harry nearly gasps.
It’s a silver band with carvings of the celtic knot all around it. It’s simple but Harry loves it. And he feels like Niall will love it too. He asks her to carve out two important dates on the inside: they day they met and they day they started dating.
After about ten to fifteen minutes of waiting the woman comes back with the ring. Harry pays for it and heads out the door with a smile on his face. He feels his phone vibrate and pulls it out of his pocket.
When are you comin home? I’m lonely and want to cuddle :(
Almost home! I’ll be over in a few! :*
Almost immediately his phone starts to ring with Niall’s name flashing across the screen. “Hello.” Harry answers opening the door of his car.
“Harold Edward Styles! Are you texting and driving?!” Niall nearly screams into his phone.
“Whoa, babe. Slow down. I’m not driving.” Harry smiles as he starts the car. He connects the bluetooth to his car and starts to drive. “Now I’m driving.” He chuckles.
“Christ, Harold.” The blue eyed man scolds making Harry chuckle. “Just come home, you twit.” Niall hangs up without another word.
In that moment Harry takes the opportunity to call Louis.
“This better be important, Harry. I’m about to go into a meeting.” Louis answers.
Harry scoffs rolling his eyes. “Remember how you owe me one?” Louis hums, remembering the time he and Niall took care of Lily. “I need you to do me a favour.”
“Ni, I’m home.” Harry calls shutting the door behind him.
“Uncle Harry!” Hazel, Gemma’s daughter shrieks.
Harry’s face lights up as he picks up the little girl. She wraps her arms around Harry’s neck for a hug. “Hey, bub. Where’s mummy?” He asks after tickling Hazel.
“Kitchen with Uncle Ni.” She announces and urges Harry to talk to the kitchen. He obliges after kicking his boots off and hanging his jacket on the rack. “Mummy! Uncle Harry’s here.”
Harry chuckles at the overexcited child in his arms and pecks Niall on the lips before hugging his sister. “What brings you here, Gem?” He takes a seat next to Niall who takes Hazel from him and starts making silly faces at the girl.
“She wanted to see her favourite uncles, of course. But I have to leave soon. I work the night shift tonight.” Gemma explains.
They talk and laugh and it feels great to see Gemma and Hazel after not seeing them in a while. After they leave Harry shuts the door and sits next to Niall on the couch.
“Where were you when I called?” Niall asks curiously, cuddling into Harry’s side.“Got held back at work.” Harry lies smoothly. Even after One Direction Harry kept writing songs for new artists or any artist really. “Why don’t we go out to dinner? I’m starving.” He casually says.
“Can we stay in?” Niall asks looking up at Harry. “Please.”
“C’mon, Ni. It’s been ages since we’ve been out together. Alone.” He pouts. “Please.” He begs like a child who wants candy from the store.
“Ugh, fine.” Niall grumbles and kisses Harry. “Only because I love you.”
After getting ready Harry makes sure ye has the ring in his pocket. He drives Niall to his favorite restaurant where he had asked Louis to makes reservations under his name. When they reach the restaurant he opens the door for Niall like a proper gentleman.
Dinner goes by smoothly. Thanks to Louis for making the reservation. Like a good boyfriend, Harry asks Niall if he wants dessert to which Niall says yes. ‘There’s always room for dessert.’ That’s his motto. Harry pays for dinner, with Niall telling him to let him pay for half, but Harry shuts him up by saying it’s his treat.
They walk out of the restaurant hand in hand. Harry’s hands are clammy and he just hopes Niall doesn’t feel it as he laces their hands together. They walk through the streets quietly until Harry decides to go to the nearby park. Harry stops in front of Niall making the blond frown. He takes Niall’s hand in his stroking his knuckles softly.
“Uh, Harry?” He says nervously.
Harry hushes him and takes a deep breath. “Okay, I probably should’ve rehearsed this but I didn’t. Bear with me, okay?” Niall smiles at the obvious nervousness in his boyfriends voice. “Niall, we’ve known each other for about ten years and I thank God we did. I liked you for about three of those years and one day my jealousy became obvious and you told me you sort of liked me back. Sort of was an understatement. You always loved me.” Niall snorts softly. “Five years ago I never thought that we would be together and look at us now, y’know? Niall, I love you and you make me so happy and I hope I make you happy as well. So, will you make me even happier”, he gets down on one knee opening the box, “by marrying me?”
Niall gasps covering his mouth as he nods frantically. “Oh, my God, Harry. Yes. Yes!” He screams and jumps into Harry’s arms.
Harry feels like the weight if the world has been lifted off his shoulders as he wraps his arms around Niall. He smiles widely as he slips on the ring on Niall’s finger and pulls him in for a kiss. He’s basically only smiling as he feels the cool of the ring on his right cheek where Niall is resting his hand.“I love you, Harry.” The blond whispers stroking Harry’s cheekbones with his thumbs. “So much. You make me so so happy.” He wraps his arms around Harry’s shoulders, burying his head in his neck.
Harry kisses the top of his head and squeezes his hips lovingly. “Hey, Ni?” Niall hums in response. “Not to be corny or anything but, I have loved you since we were eighteen.”
