Title: Deciding to Stay
Chapter 1: Staying the Night
Fandom: One Direction(RPF)
Pairings: Niall Horan/Liam Payne

Summary: Liam’s been keeping his feelings for his best friend Niall a secret but if Niall just says the word…
A/N: Story loosely based upon the One Direction song Change My Mind. Unbeta’d, all mistakes are all my own.  First time tackling this pair and haven’t written much lately. Might add to this in the future but for now its just a sweet little one shot!! (update: this is now a chapter story)

Niam Banner

It’s late, the others have gone their separate ways, and all that remains is Niall and himself. Liam laughs as Niall swears at the video game they’re playing, Niall hates losing. He knows he should probably head to his own room but something’s keeping him here and it isn’t FIFA.

Liam leans in close to Niall as he kids him about his language, which only makes him swear worse. Niall’s laughter is music to his ears and the warmth of his best friend’s body sets Liam’s heart aflutter. How long has he felt like this? How long since he stopped thinking of Niall as a brother and began wanting more...

There’s no music but suddenly Niall’s sick of football, he throws the controller onto the coffee table in defeat and begins mangling some Justin Bieber ballad. Liam laughs at the other boy’s silliness but then finds himself loudly singing along. Niall flings an arm innocently over Liam’s shoulder and they begin swaying in time to their slightly off-key rendition.

This is what Liam loves about Niall, the boy’s spirited spontaneity, a trait Liam’s slowly learning but still hasn’t quite mastered on his own. The song ends with them in hysterics as they poke playfully at one another. Liam leans against the sofa back, breathless from laughing; Niall’s head falls against his chest and Liam instinctively reaches down to play at Niall’s soft blonde hair.

They fall silent, Liam fondly caressing Niall’s head. It’s a bit awkward once Niall finally moves.  His blue eyes are sparkling and he’s biting his bottom lip which drives Liam crazy. If only Niall felt the same for him? If only Liam could give into the feelings he’s hidden for months? All he wants right now is to kiss Niall senseless. And that’s his cue to leave…

He gets up, stretching himself out, flexing his long lean muscles. He imagines the flutter of a soft touch against his spine but knows he’s mistaken. It’s time to go but he’s not hurrying because if Niall asked him to stay, he’d surely change his mind. Liam’s hand is on the door when he’s stopped in his tracks by Niall’s firm but gentle grip upon his shoulder.


It’s only one word but it’s uttered with a raspy desire that almost has Liam reeling. He turns to face his best friend, his heart soaring with hope.


The word comes out of Liam’s mouth with such reverence and desire that it has Niall moving forward. The inches between them close quickly and their lips collide desperately. The other boy’s breath is warm against Liam’s mouth and it has him pulling Niall closer, arms encircling Niall’s waist. Every stroke of Liam’s tongue against Niall’s lips is deliberate and soon Niall’s mouth opens in a breathless gasp. Liam feels Niall’s tongue as it caresses his own and it sets his insides afire. The kiss lingers only a few moments longer and Liam wishes it could last forever.

They pull apart slowly, Niall’s fingers still gripping tight to the front of Liam’s shirt and one of Liam’s arms still circling Niall’s waist.

“I’m sorry…I’ve just wanted to do that for so long.” Niall says, face blushing.

A nervous chuckle escapes his throat as he finally releases his hold upon Liam. Liam knows it’s now or never… his one chance, the opportunity to make his feelings known.

“Don’t be sorry. I’ve wanted it too…”

He can feel his own face heat with embarrassment. Is he really having this conversation with his best friend? For that matter, did he really just kiss him? He should just leave now but instead he takes a risk.

“Niall, I love you.”

The words are a low whisper but somehow Niall hears him. Niall’s fingertips drag down Liam’s facial stubble to pull Liam’s gaze even with his own. He doesn’t utter the words back; he doesn’t need to because it’s written plain within his eyes.

And just like that, Liam’s changed his mind…he’s staying.
