The day One Direction realizes that Niall Horan wasn’t as single as they thought is the same day they find the divorce papers sent in the mail.
It was an intervention, Niall supposed. He wasn’t quite sure what gave him the idea that it was an intervention, whether it was the fact that he walked into the dressing room with the other four members sitting and waiting for him with a solemn air, or the fact that there was a large, while banner with the word “INTERVENTION” painted on it in red letters hanging in the corner.
"What’s the craic, boys?" Niall entered, taking a chance and hoping that a smile would get the serious expressions off their faces. He walked up to Louis and started playfully poking him in the ribs, knowing that of all people, he could rely on Louis to give him a good laugh. "Shouldn’t you be gettin’ ready for your date with your girl and Zayn and his girl? A night out in LA? Double the date, double the love, huh? Gettin’ all wild ‘n—"
"Niall." Louis stopped Niall and showed him the papers. "You just got sent this from back home, requiring your signature to finalize a divorce..?"
Louis’s voice always sounded weird to Niall whenever he wasn’t trying to say something funny, but at this moment, the fact that it sounded weird was making Niall laugh. The Irish boy had to hold on to his stomach from all the laughter, afraid that it would just burst from all the “HA HA”s he was doing, as he wiped the tear out of his eyes. The other boys exchanged confused glances and right when one of them was going to step up to get Niall to stop, the laughter began to transition to a string of curse words that could only come out of a true Irishman. Niall snatched the papers out of Louis’s hands and scanned the text, adding unnecessary swears between each word he read out loud, and then grabbed a pen off the table and signed the paper.
The boys watched Niall take a seat in his dressing room, close his eyes, and take a deep breath. And then in almost a second later, he looked at Harry and Liam. ”So I’m guessin’ we’re gonna be spendin’ the night as true bachelors together, huh?”
