Face the Music

Julia is your typical sixteen year old girl. She lives with her mother and her little sister Marty, she has her insecurities, she has her boy issues, and oh yeah, her love for the British/Irish boy-band One Direction. When her seventeenth birthday arrives, everything seems perfect....until it all fell apart piece by piece. But to every rainy day there is always a rainbow, what will happen when she unexpectedly 'falls hard' for not one, but two of the boys in One Direction? And what would happen if they both like her back? Would rivalry break everyone apart? Or will the fandom get to them first? Just as life is, every situation has two faces. One is an amazing benefit, and the other could lead to sacrifice...


41. Face The Piece That Didn't Fall into Place

Louis' POV

From: Hazza To: Boobear;) Julie's awake....

From: Boobear To: Hazza;) REALLY?? AWESOME!! The guys and I as well as Danielle and Eleanor are on our way!! :)

From: Hazza To: Boobear;) Not sure that's such a good idea....

From: Boobear To: Hazza;) Why? Julie would be elated to see everyone! Oh I get it ;) you want to spend some alone time with her...okay, i understand...;)

From: Hazza To: Boobear;) That's really not why.... nvm. All of you come...maybe you can help.

I was completely baffled with what Harry meant in his text but it was probably his own weird world of issues. I would ask him about it later, right now I was way too excited to see how Julie was!

After the 'incident', inspectors had piled in and said that the hotel was still safe to reside in; but Paul insisted we move to another one. So now we were staying at The Ritz-Carlton. 181 Wellington Street West, five-star hotel in the heart of Downtown Toronto. Actually a much better location, convienience wise, for us to get to interviews and concerts on time. And closer to the hospital Julie was at!

I took the elevator down to the lobby where the boys were and stepped out just in time to see them heading out. "Guys wait! We have a detour planned!" "Lou, if its to go to the mall for you to buy another pair of Toms we're not interested. Jeez, you buy one pair, and you're addicted..." Zayn muttered. "Hey! I'll decide what I want to buy and when I want to buy it!" I said snapping my fingers. "And that's not it! Julie woke up!" The guys immediately brightened up, especially Niall, and pulled me with them out the door. "Why didn't you say so!" Liam shouted unlocking his car for us to pile in.

In only fifteen minutes, we arrived at the hospital and outside Julie's room with the girls too. The blinds to the window from the corridor were drawn so we couldn't see anything from outside. "Knock, Knock" I whispered as I opened the door a crack. "What's going on in there. Should we close our eyes?" Instead of Julie's giggle I expected, I was answered by Harry's gruff voice. "Just come." We walked in and laid a bouqet of fresh flowers and a fruit basket on the table. I noticed that Harry was covering his face with his hands on the side of Julie's bed. Still sitting in his chair like we left him a week ago.....acting like he was stressed about something. I merely passed by him patting his back and stood next to Julie who was sitting in her bed admiring the flowers. "Miss me?" I teased to Julie leaning towards her for a hug. She gave me a light hug before she let go abruptly and asked, "Um sorry....And you are?" "Very funny Julia...you're jok-" "She's not joking mate." Harry whispered. He took a deep breath and stood up to pull all of us outside her room in the hallway. He told us everything exactly as Dr. Stevens had told him.

"Wait so what can she remember?" Niall asked Harry worriedly. "Dr. Stevens said she can remember basic but not complicated stuff....or MOST information she's known for years. So anyways, barely anything to do with us. And honestly at this point, I don't even know what she knows or doesn't know." "Duh...then play 21 questions with her!" I laughed trying to lighten the mood. "Too soon?...Yeah? Ok..."

We walked back in the room to see Julie looking out the window. "What's your name?!" I fired at her all of a sudden with my 'Megamind' voice sitting in Harry's chair. "What?" She asked puzzled. "I'II ASK THE QUESTIONS HERE!" "Umm...Julianne Hayley Martise." She replied surely. "Your name is actually Julianne? Ohhh...that's where Julia came from. Huh...learn alot from a person when they have amnesia." I mumbled. "Uh...WHO's THIS?" I asked pulling Eleanor from behind me.  She studied her face closely but shook her head. "I'm sorry. I don't know." I did the same for everyone else, but she didn't seem to remember anyone. Julie stared at Harry the longest but couldn't put her finger on his name either. "This is hopeless!" Danielle sighed. "Wait...what about Sky?!" Zayn said excitedly with hope in his eyes. "Zayn, now is not the time to tell us about your love, crush, romance thing with Skylar." I said a little annoyed. He punched my shoulder lightly and blushed a little. "Shut up Louis. I meant that Julie should remember her right? They are cousins!" We all decided that it was worth a shot, but we couldn't bring Julie to Skylar because of her sprained ankle. So we drove Sky to her.

In half an hour, we had Skylar prepared with info on Julie's situation and we were entering the room again. "Hey. Remember me?" she asked.

Julia's POV

Ok. So everyone reminded me their names and told me their relation to me and so on. I felt really bad that I couldn't remember any of them...especially that curly haired hottie. What was his name? Oh yeah, Harry. So apparently he was my ex? Julie what did you do that time to get the relationship to end? He looked so caring, sweet, hot...the list could go on. Huh. Actually all the five guys were hot.....did I die and go to heaven already?

They all left, but returned in half an hour with a pretty blonde haired girl. She looked familiar....but I stayed quiet when she asked me if I remembered her because I wasn't sure. Everyone sighed when I didn't respond to her.

"Julia...my name is-" "Skylar." I replied. She immediately perked up. "Y-You remember me!" "You're my cousin that I can tell everything to...but I don't remember what I told you...And we were really close since we were little! Oh! And you had like the hugest crush on....oh what was his name...oh yeah! Za-" Sky quickly covered my mouth with her hand. "She's fine.." she giggled happily yet embarassed at the same time.

"Wait...Zayn. That's you right?!" I asked pointing at him. He nodded. "Wait...You're the one that I went to Starbucks with before I got in this mess..." "You remember everything?!" He shouted excitedly. I scratched my head. "Um...that's all I can remember right now. I don't even remember why I went to Starbucks or how I got hurt in the first place. But I seem to remember everything about you clearly...probably because of Sky." I sent a playful look at her. "Oh look at the time...I better be going now." She said grabbing her coat off the rack. "Nice way to get out of the conversation." I heard Louis mutter and I laughed. "Well, she remembers two out of the eight of us...that's a start." Liam added with a sigh. "See you tomorrow?" Skylar asked giving me a hug. "Sure!" "I'll drive you home." Zayn said stealing the car keys from Liam's jacket pocket and giving me a kiss on the cheek before disppearing out the door with Sky by his side.

"Oh great. Looks like we're taking a cab home..." Niall huffed. Louis looked outside the window. "Not a single one in sight...even when we're in Downtown! We're going to have to call one." Niall took a seat at the desk in the room and flipped through the big YellowPages book. "Ah here's one." He took out his cell phone from his pocket. "Shit. Phone just died. I'll be back, I need to use the Payphone."

I caught the last word 'Payphone'....why did that sound so familiar? I closed my eyes and focused on the facts and loose thoughts floating in my mind. "Niall?" I called to him before he opened the door. "Yeah?" "Was there a song we used to sing a lot, like just the two of us?" "Uh...yeah it was by Maroon 5, 'Payphone'......which is kinda what I need to use right now to call a cab..." He stepped out of the room, but walked in again in two seconds with a huge smile on his face. "DO YOU REMEMBER SOMETHING?!" "Were you who I called my 'irish leprechaun'?" I asked. Hoopefully I had remembered the right person. "YES!! He ran next to my bed and tackled me in a tight hug. "Niall....can't...breathe..." "Oh sorry." He let go of me and ventured downstairs to call a taxi with a smile on his face.

"And then there were five...that she didn't remember." Liam narrated. "Come on Julie!!! Don't you remember me? How can you forget me? IT'S ME WE'RE TALKING ABOUT! Come on! I'm memorable!" Louis babbled on. "I know that your name is Louis Tomlinson and you're in One Direction. The Irish/British boyband from the X-Factor put together by Simon Cowell." I confirmed to him. "Wait. How did you remember that...the X-Factor part I mean." I shrugged "I just did. When you told me your name, pieces just fell in place you know. I am a Directioner." Suddenly Niall ran back into my room. "So how we doin' with rememberin' people?" "After you, not much progress.

I looked to my right. Harry was seated in a loveseat sofa against the wall holding a piece of paper. He was quiet...I couldn't remember if he used to be so quiet or if this was unusual for him so I just overlooked it.

"Cab will be here in ten minutes." Niall told the boys as he fidgeted with a rubrics cube on the desk. "Well we tried 'Superman'." Liam said as he patted Louis in the shoulder. "Yup. Guess we'll try again tomorrow 'Woody'." I tilted my head...familiar. Superman, Woody...but why was it familiar? "Oh Julie, you like the wallpaper on my phone...it's Donkey Kong" Liam shoved his phone at my face. 'It's on like Donkey Kong' the caption read. Before I could even think about why I felt like I heard that before; Louis came up to me with a drawing of a pigeon on a notepad. "Like my drawing? I call him K-" "Kevin." I completed his sentence. "So you remember us?" Louis said in his sarcastic and yet sly voice. "I don't know. I think so, but correct me if I'm wrong...Louis, you're dating Eleanor Calder, and you did that 'Superman' and 'Kevin' thing in one of your X-Factor video diaries.You also screamed SUPERMAN when we were playing with....nerf guns I think, at my place. Liam, you love Toy Story, you're dating Danielle Peazer, your character said 'it's on like Donkey Kong' in the Adventureous Adventures of One Direction, a fanmade-" "Told you it would work." Liam said as he nudged Louis. "What?" I was confused again. Liam explained. "I knew you were a Directioner, and I realized how you could remember stuff that happened when we were on the X-Factor-" "So we decided to jog your memory with stuff we did back on the X-Factor! Or along those lines at least." Louis finished. 

I pulled him, Liam, El, and Dani into a big hug, "Thank you. You have no idea how relieved I am to be able to remember so much again!" I was near tears by then, happy and sad tears. Happy that I could actually retrieve most of my memory. I was so worried that I would have forgotten everything for the rest of my life! The doctor said that could happen as an early case of deteriorating amnesia if no one could help me get my memory back. And yet I was sad that I still couldn't remember who Harry really was...

 **10 minutes later**

"You wanted to talk?" Harry asked half-heartedly, seated back in his usual chair. 

Everyone had left in the taxi that had come, except Harry who stayed with me as I told him I wanted to talk.

"Harry. I'm sorry I don't remember you or anything we did before....but Eleanor told me that you stayed back with me every single day and night since the accident. And I want to thank you for that." "Don't. You saved my life. It's the least I could do." Oh so I had saved his life. I remembered things a little clearer now....but his history with me was still a blur.

Neither of us spoke for a while, until I broke the silence. "Harry...why did we break up?"

Harry's POV 

Not this again. I had been wrecking my brain to get that reason out of my head...what was I going to say? 'I thought you would have been happier with Niall after you guys made out twice?' I would never say that. It would make her feel guilty again. I sighed. "You broke up with me. Because I cheated on you." I lied. I lied to protect her. Her feelings. It was better to let her think that I was the one who was the cause of the breakup, the one who had done wrong, rather than for it to be her.  I couldn't let her live on thinking she was entirely the cause of the breakup. Especially because she couldn't remember the complicated details of our relationship. 

"Oh." She said sadly. "You should get some sleep." I quickly changed the subject. Julie nodded and I turned off the main light overhead but turned on the lamp on the table. In seconds Julie was out. She slept peacefully and I fould myself stroking her hand as she did. But I quickly stopped myself. 'She likes Niall, she likes Niall.' I repeated in my mind. I sat back in the chair and stuffed my hands in my pockets. I took out the piece of paper I was looking intently at before. It was a photo. A photo of Julie and I at her house on her birthday. The candle which she had just blown out was removed, and I quickly shoved her face in the cake. In the picture, she was kissing my cheek getting some cake on me too. I began to tear up again. Julie would never remember this. Our love, was the last piece of the puzzle that never did and probably never would fall back into place. I stuffed the picture back in my pocket and got up to go to the bathroom to wash my tear stained face. 

No-One's POV

What Harry didn't notice when he went to the washroom, was that he hadn't placed the picture in his pocket like he thought I had. It had fallen onto the floor near Julie's bed. And in the dark, he couldn't see that...
