32_ Star of the night

It's morning and Emma is feeling pretty much moody than excited to go home.
Stefan, Lada, Natasha, and Sylvesto bids them goodbye and they drive to the airport.

Niall tries to talk to her but she shuts him up by putting headphones into her ears while glaring daggers at him.

He gets the message.

She is ignoring and avoiding just like he did before.

Karma is having its fun.

Niall keeps shut through the mid part of the flight journey and even when he pours her, her favorite champagne, she refuses. With a glare, of course.

She sleeps peacefully in her seat and Niall can't. He watches her stir in between, scratching her neck in the same position every time, moaning someone's name in her sleep.

That's a first.

He moves closer to her seat and sits opposite her to hear what she is saying.

"I've never read a bible in my life", she says slowly and nods.

I'll make you read it, he thinks with a mischievous smile.

"Why?", She asks furrowing her eyebrows.

Niall keeps quiet. He just wants to listen as she did.

It's just so funny that both of us are sleeptalkers.

She clicks her tongue and shakes her head, pouting. "No, we can't."

After a moment of silence, she says, "Don't blame me if someone sees us going crazy."

She laughs shaking her head.

Her fingers twitch and she taps them on her lap like we people do when they listen to some songs and doing a breakdance in their minds like a maniac.

She gasps. "You are gifted", she says flirtatiously, biting her lips.

Is she dreaming nasty? Oh my god, I need to jump off of this plane.

She chuckles. "Calvin Russell Brown! Don't kill me.....", She giggles again.

I don't think I need a parachute anymore. I'll just jump and die.

"Ow! Don't break my hips, Boy. Just go slow and nice."

F*CK. F*CK. F*CK.

She grins wholeheartedly making Niall's heart flutter.

Don't do that. Please don't.

"Star of the night."

He watches her without blinking.

"You dance better than anyone, Cal. Believe in yourself."

They were dancing!? Phew, that's a relief.
Wait, why is it a relief to me?

"And don't forget that I love you no matter what."

..........No! You don't love him, Emma. Shut up! Just shut up!

"Cross my heart", she says crossing on the left side of her chest with her finger and smiles.

F*ck it.

So I'm putting my defenses up
'Cause I don't wanna fall in love
If I ever did that, I think I'd have a heart attack."

[Song mentioned above: Heartattack by Demi Lovato]

She sings and bobs her head to and fro.

She is singing in her sleep? Nonsense, Emma. You are such a nonsense. And why do I like it so much?

"Niall you are so jealous."

What!?

She opens her eyes and leans forward. "You are jealous. I know you are, don't deny it."

"I thought you were asleep", he says in shock, furrowing his brows.

"I was. Not anymore", she says taking her AirPods off and he rolls his eyes.

I didn't see that in her ears before.

He bites his lips nervously unknowingly turning her on.

Emma, calm down. You are mad at him. Are you a switch to get turned on so easily? She thinks to herself.

"You were sleep talking."

She gulps. Oh great, now I'm the idiot.

"What did I say?"

"You were talking about dancing and Calvin. And that you love him."

Her jaws clench as a reaction and she speaks angrily through her gritted teeth, "I don't love him."

"I didn't record or anything as you did but I'm telling you that you did say it and crossed your heart too."

"That's bullshit. You're lying."

"I don't care if you believe it or not. But that's the truth and I'm not jealous of anything. It's just your brain going insane."

"Excuse me!? Are you saying that I'm crazy? It's you who's crazy not me!"

"Emma stop. I don't want to fight you."

"Then. Get. Out. Of. My. Face!"

He jumps up and drags himself to his seat.

"You are so infuriating! I can't imagine how Calvin managed to be with you. Ugh!"

She glares at him. "Look who's talking! That one single rich bustard."

"Oh, you are single too. You can't get a man anymore 'cause they are all out of your league now." He snorts.

He just called me a low-class woman. I'll show you who's the one that can't get a partner.

Emma sprints up from her seat, comically tossing her hair off of her shoulders, showing off at him, and walks to the cockpit.

She knocks on the door. Emma waits a few moments before going in and locks the door behind her.

Minutes pass into half an hour and she comes back, fixing her hair and makeup.

"See who can get a partner and who can't", she says fiercely swaying her hips a little more violently than before making him gawk and she sits down.

Infuriating Stalker.

Niall's forehead creases aggressively. She is too much for me. I can't have you, Emma. You are such a bad bitch.

While Emma goes to use the washroom, Niall goes inside of the cockpit to see the lucky guy who got kissed by Emma and raises a brow skeptically.

I can't believe that she did this just to make me mad and prove her point.

Laughter bubbles up in his stomach thinking how childish she is. He just wants to crack up and die laughing in there but he talks to the pilots for a while and gets to know when they land and comes back into the passenger side.

Two hours later, they land and one of his drivers comes to pick them up and drives them back to his house.

Emma bounces into her room and shuts her door without saying a word.

Niall can't help but laugh again thinking about what she did back on the plane. He holds his tummy as he laughs harder and pinches the bridge of his nose as he falls on the bathroom floor holding back another wave of laughter.

Both of the pilots were females.
