Summary: A sequel of sorts to this drabble in which Niall is most definitely pregnant and Zayn has most definitely grown up.
A.N.: The title is from the first ‘part’ and this can stand alone but it’s so much sweeter if you read them together!
When Niall was seven years old or something, he had this whole life plan written out. He was going to be a rockstar and travel the world, settle down with a pretty girl and a big front yard, a dog and absolutely no kids at all. Of course, he’d realized as he got older that his plan wouldn’t work out that well so he had to tweak it for realism. He knew he was a great guitarist but he also knew not everyone made it big so that went out the window, and then he had the teenage revelation that he didn’t like girls, he liked boys, so that also went out the window. The ‘no kids’ clause though, Niall really fucked that one up, getting pregnant at twenty years old.
It isn’t as bad as Niall expected it would be though, after he gets over the morning sickness of course. And Zayn, he’s been a big help, Niall can’t forget about that. He hadn’t expected it from Zayn, one of the other boys, yes, but not from Zayn. Not the constant doting and the onslaught of healthy food, the two AM mugs of tea and nine PM donut runs. The way he and Zayn had been at odds months ago, Niall would’ve been crazy to expect this, but he’s in the third trimester now, and Zayn’s favourite pastime is rubbing the soft curve of his stomach, hunting for a wiggle or a kick.
Like right now, Zayn is kneeling on the floor between Niall’s spread legs, his ear pressed just above Niall’s distended belly button. His thumbs are tucked neatly against the bone of Niall’s hips like he’s trying to pin him down, but Niall isn’t going anywhere as far as he’s concerned. He’s plenty comfortable here, threading his fingers through Zayn’s hair to scratch at his scalp as he watches the TV vaguely, but he’s barely paying attention to the scandalous lives of illustrious rich people because Zayn’s breath is warm against his skin.
a moment of silence please because today is the day lily, james and harry potter crashed their car into a crocodile which ate harrys parents and then took out a knife and gave him a lightning bolt scar. This is such a tragic day for eveyone around the world
