Let Me Love You...

Darcy is just moving into LA and getting use to the city when she meets two mystery boys, who happen to be apart of the biggest boy band in thew world. But thats not even the best part... she might just fall for one of them.


12. Nathan <3


I continued stroking her hair telling her supportive things like ‘it’d be ok.’ she didn’t believe me though, who could blame her? Even I didn’t believe me. Finally, she decided that she needed to call Niall about last night to give him her answer on what would become of there relationship. I nodded my head, walking out the door to giver her some privacy.

When I came out I couldn’t even look at Harry. Nothing was going on between us but…I don’t know…I cant really explain the feelings I have for him right now. Thankfully I didn’t have to because when I looked up, he wasn’t there. I searched the house but he was nowhere to be found and his car was gone. He had left…

“Darcy?” I heard Laci say from behind me, in a more cheerful voice.

“whats up, Lac? What did you decide?” I asked, eager to see what would happen.

“he told me that Louis and Liam have a girlfriends that lived in England and that they would get to visit them all the time because they was so close and stuff,“ she began.


“he wants to know if I would come to England with them and stay at a hotel there,” she explained slowly, trying to see what my reaction would be, “just for a couple of months, he really likes me Darc. And plus this guy is so different from all the others-”

“that’s what you said about Nathan,” I bluntly reminded her. She glanced at the ground in shame, having the name bring back so many memories for her.

“I know…” she whispered.

I felt horrible bringing him up. Nathan meant a lot to Laci and well…me. He was an old friend of hers. He was her best friend before me but things didn’t work out for her. She wanted to be more then friends but he had already found a girl. He was forced to choose and well….judging on how Laci reacted to his name I think you know how it ended. He was her first love and he was mine. I knew Nathan too. Of course it was long after Laci and him weren’t friends anymore but the girl he loved left him for someone stronger, smarter, richer…. Classic tragedy. He was still in that stage after a breakup when you feel you wont find another person as perfect as the one before. This was before I became shy and kept to myself and he was cute so naturally I wanted to ask him out. He denied at first but I was a very persuasive girl and before I knew it we were in love. Sadly, I didn’t have that good of luck with romance. on November 21st, 2009 he was diagnosed with Leukemia and shortly afterwards passed away…now you see why he was a touchy subject for us. I really loved Nathan, he was the type of guy where I could be myself and he still loved me, still thought I was perfect. After him I’ve never been the same around guys.

“I’m sorry I didn’t mean to bring him up,” I apologized, walking over to her and grabbing her hand for comfort.

“you wont ever understand Darc, at least he loved you. He gave up on us before we were even together. I will never forgive him for that,” she told me, pulling away and trying to retreat to her room so I wouldn’t see the tears.

“He was a nice guy Laci! He was perfect and just because he had a moment of weakness and didn’t choose you doesn’t mean that you can judge him on that for the rest of your life!” I screamed at her, now angry at the thought Laci didn’t like him. This was my first love she was talking about.

She slowly turned around with tears building from her eyes.

“I knew him better then you. But he’s gone. He died Darcy. Just let him go. Its over.”

The words she had spoken hit me like a wall. I didn’t know how to react to this. Maybe she was right…she was best friends with him but that still doesn’t mean I didn’t know anything about him. I felt a tear stream down my cheek as I fell to the floor, covering my face, allowing myself to breakdown. I was over reacting. I knew it. But what else could I do?

“I’m sorry Darcy, I know he meant a lot to both of us. I shouldn’t compare,” I heard Laci whisper, now stroking my hair. I reached over to her crying in her arms, letting myself be totally vulnerable for just this one moment. This one place where I knew I was safe with my best friend. She understood what I was feeling and I understood was she felt. For this one moment we could both let out a cry for Nathan. We could miss him together.


The rest of the day we both were in a horrible mood. Laci decided that she would think about the whole ‘going to England’ thing tomorrow and I decided whatever her choice was I would support her in it.

Oh and Harry hadn’t left without saying anything. He left a note on the counter saying he promised to be at the studio by 8:00 and well…we kind of woke up at 9ish soo he was a little late. I felt better knowing he didn’t just leave.

For the rest of the day I slept. Whenever I thought of….Nathan….I got sad and to cope with it I slept. The day passed so quickly and I remember dozing in and out of the day seeing Laci in my room once or the door closed at one time and it opened the next. Laci liked to clean whenever she thought of him. Which I didn’t mind, the place needed some spring cleaning.

Anyways it was about nine at night. Laci had already gone to bed and I was sprawled out on the couch in the TV room, dozing off, watching a scary movie. The movie was playing but my mind wasn’t and I didn’t realize what was going on. Something about a demon taking over someone’s body. You know the usual horror movies. My arm fell to the ground as I began to lightly snore. I could already feel a dream coming on but a loud ‘DING’ came from the door. I shot up, with my half closed eyes staring at the door. Who would be here? Slowly, I managed to get up and stumble over to the door. I was only wearing a, fairly large shirt that drooped down to just above my knees but that was it. Well also Nike socks but I always slept with socks on. I didn’t expect to see anyone I cared about at nine at night so I let myself turn the knob and see who was waiting just outside. As soon as I saw him, I felt my mouth drop to the ground and I definitely regretted only wearing a big shirt.
