Moments In Time Chapter TwentyThree I can’t believe this
I can’t believe this
happening. I ran into my favorite uncle’s opening arms. I
felt the tears fall down my face and I was sobbing. I turned to
the judges before lifting the microphone up to my mouth.
“Thank you so, so much” I choked out
“Consider it an early birthday present from your favorite
judge” Simon winked and I walked off stage holding my
uncle in a side hug. I walked into the contestant’s room
where Louis and Izzy stopped fighting over whatever it is they
fight about and came running over.
“UNCLE TWIST” They both screamed. Before he moved
to America, Twist would babysit us all the time. My uncle eyes
widened as two 17 year olds came running towards him.
“Hey Weasel! Hey Wolf!” He said being forced into a
group hug. Twist had nicknamed all of us. I was Mouse since I
was so small when I was little and squeaked a lot, Izzy was
Weasel because she was always into something or planning
something, and Louis was Wolf since he resembled a wolf when he
was younger. Trust me if you saw his hair when he woke up it
would make sense.
“Uncle Twist this is Niall Horan, Izz- I mean Weasels
boyfriend” I said and Izzy shot me a look while the rest
of the boys freaked out. “ANYWAY, This is my EX
boyfriend, Harry Styles. And my best friends Liam Payne, Zayn
Malik, and Cher Lloyd” Harry got a very annoyed look on
his face but his expression changed quickly when Twist stood up
a little straighter. Something you should know about Twist, He
wasn’t the smallest man. He was around 6’11”
and huge. When I say huge I mean PURE MUSSELL. To me,Izzy and
Louis he was a giant Teddybear but to everyone else he was a
very scary guy.
“So why did I never know about this- HES THE ONE YOUR
LAST SHOW WAS ABOUT” Twist said with it suddenly clicking
in his mind.
“Harry. If you enjoy your life, I would run” Louis
said and Harry disappeared before Twist looked over.
“The kid realizes I work for government that I am trained
to detect movement and paths right? And I have a ex-Marine boss
who I swear levitates because none of us can ever hear us
coming?” Izzy, Louis and I laughed while the rest of the
boys looked like they were about to pee themselves.
“So Uncle Twist, What are you doing out here?”
“Simon flew me out so I didn’t have to miss my
nieces 17th birthday!” He said ruffling my
“Eh eh eh not the hair” I said whining and trying
to wrestle out of Twist’s grasp. Of course my plan failed
and it ended up with a wrestling match. It was me, Louis and
Izz vs Twist. I think we all know who won that one. One by one
everyone started drifting to sleep. I was still wide awake and
catching up with my uncle.
“Hey Mouse, honey is there somewhere we can talk
“Sure!” I said leading him to my rehersal room.
“Can anyone hear us in here?”
“Nope, I’m the only one with the key and it’s
“So What’s up Twist?”
“I need to talk to you about one of the major reasons I
needed to come here”
“I figured it wasn’t for my birthday”
“I wish I could have done it just for your birthday. I
was allowed a few days off to see family before we finished off
“What’s the case?” I said getting scared
“We are wrapping up a case of a terrorist named Ari.
Gibbs, My boss, has become obsessed with finding him. We
tracked him to arrive in America in 3 days time. We have to
find him and we have to kill him or imprison him”
“Why were you allowed to see family before?” I
asked not really wanting the answer. Twist took a deep
“DiNozzo, Gibbs and I are going after him while McGee
keeps a GPS location on him and Abby works out any last second
details. I have to protect Gibbs because he is Ari’s
biggest threat. Mouse honey, I might not come out of this
“He is dangerous and he knows exactly what he’s
doing. I know what I am getting into with this and I really
wish I didn’t have to do this. I have to take the
sacrifice. For my country. For You.”
“But your all I have left of him” I said between
“I know you miss your dad honey but I have to do this.
Please just try to understand”
“I get it.”
“Good” He wrapped me into a hug “I love you
“I love you too Uncle Twist”
“I gotta get back to my hotel. Goodnight, I’ll see
“Goodnight” I said giving him a final hug. I went
straight to bed where I fell asleep instently. I began having
nightmares that someone was going to kill me. I woke myself up
and was scared to fall back asleep. I instinctively went into
One Direction’s room. I climbed into Louis’ bed
where he woke up.
“Yeah..” I whispered and he put his arm around me
and fell back asleep. What would I do without a best friend
The next morning I had a very rude awakening.
“IS THAT A GIRL IN LOUIS’ BED?!” Harry
“Shh! Harold I swear to god if you wake her up”
“Who is it lad?” Liam asked
“It’s me. So shut up or I will personally make you
wet the bed tomorrow” I said angerlly and tried to fall
“Psh I doubt it” Niall said obviously asking for a
challenge and the rest of the boys, except Louis agreed.
“Boys. Don’t test her”
“Challenge accept” I smiled and gave up
“Oh and Mouse?” Louis said using my uncles name for
me, the first time in a long time.
