Underneath

Athelia Queann is living the glamorous life in London as one of the richest people in England. She's a big sensation, and everything the fans thinks she's not. She's manipulative, spoiled, selfish and nothing is never good enough for a star like her. Behind all the glitter and the fake smile, a loneliness is slowly tearing her up inside. But one day a person enters her life and changes everything. Even though Athelia don't want anyone to come this close to her, that one person starts becoming really importnant whether she wants it or not. That person is someone she used to know as Niall Horan from One Direction. Nothing more.

33. Be alright

Niall's P.O.V

I woke up as a thin sunbeam shined through the window. With sleepy eyes I pulled my self up from the bed. I yawned while stretching my body. I breathed in the smell of home. It was amazing to be staying here. To be around my family all the time, the fresh air and mums pancakes in the morning. Everything already seemed to be going better. Maybe this was exactly what I had needed?

Wearing a loose t-shirt and sweathpants I walked down stairs lokking lazy. My mum was reading the newspaper  at the dinnertable.

"Morning", she said smiling at me. I smiled at her and slowly sat down at the table.

"Do Athelia know that you're here?", she then asked out of nowhere making me a little confused. I had only just gotten up and already she was asking questions about the girl I preferred not to talk about. She made that sadness I was dealing with inside of me grow a bit.

"No, why would I tell her... I mean, I haven't talked to her for more than 4 months mum", I mumbled reaching out for the juice and filling my glas to the edge. My mum nodded slowly and her eyes went back to the newspaper.

"Well, I think you should go talk to her", she then said as I thought she was finished. I looked up from my plate with pancakes and sighed a bit exhausted.

"I know you don't like to talk about her, but obviously this is killing you. I diffenetly think it's on time you go find her and just talk to her". Mym mum was in some way right I knew, but in another way I knew Athelia to well to know that it would no be that easy with her. It was over, I was finally starting to realize that. And my mum should let me.

"It's not that easy", I just said leaning hopeless back in the chair.

"I know", mum sighed giving me a small smile. "Maybe I should just stay out of it".

I smiled and a small laugher escaped my lips.

Athelia's P.O.V
 

Where was he? Already on tour?  Millions of worried thoughts crossed my mind as I sat on his doorstep doing my nails hoping he would come home. I had been sitting there for a long time, so long I was quite sure it was the next day now. Why wasn't he home?

I pulled up my blackberry from my pocket and found his contact. My finger carefully touched the call button but I decided not to, since I wanted to do this in person. Even though I had no idea what 'this' was.

Clearly he wasn't coming so I decided to leave and go look for him another place. Maybe he was sleeping at one of the boys place, or he was sleeping at rehersals or something..... again the thought about that maybe he had already left for tour ran throug my mind and I got goosebumps. If he was already on tour, I would hate myself for not realizing this before. And I would book a flight to where ever he were. And then everything would just... be alright again. Or I hoped so. Because I still could not deny the fact that he might not feel the same anymore. It made a heavy worried stone grow inside my stomach, just thinking about it. I would never forgive myself if that was how he was feeling now. Never forgive myself for not doing this when I had the change. Would I even be able to go on if he told me he it was to late?

To late. The strong words echoed in my mind as I walked down the stairs to the street. To late.

I got out on the street again, and it had suddently changed to day. It was a chilly may weather with a slight breeze but still a bit of sunshine behind the clouds. I just stood there enjoying the fresh air for some seconds before I looked down at myself and realized I was in pj's. I gasped and quickly looked around to check if anyone was noticing. No one seemed to be. I had to get a cab, get home and get changed and then.... then i had absouluteley no idea whtat to do next.

As I was waiting for the taxi, I suddently saw a big commercial hanging on a brickwall. A big poster with the headline 'Try'. The movie I once was starring in. The movie with the boy and the girl. The lovestory. After the thing with Niall, I hadn't showed up so I was now no more a part of the movie. They had found another girl. Jessica Throne. I thought that seeing this would have made me sad, but actually it just made me more happy. Leaving the movie had been a good choice. As Niall had onc said at one of our first lunches, it was importnant to be doing something that you like.

 

Zayn's P.O.V

"One two three, c'mon!", Peter was yelling doing big movements with his arm. We started singing Kiss you with full power and it sounded really good. I could not wait until we were going to perform on that stage that I loved so much infront of thousands of fans. I couldn't wait with showing them what we had been practicing.

But as the song got to Niall's solo it was like the whole spirit in the room fainted. We just stood there the four of us akwardly not knowing what to do. Peter's face looked a bit stressed and he gave Chad a sign to turn down the music.

"Okay guys, ovbvisouly you know where he went? Wher is he? This isn't working...", he said sounding a bit angry while walking towards us. We all looked at each other not knowing what to say to him. It was obvisou this wasn't wotking but still, we wouldn't tell them. Niall needed that break, and we would let him get it.

"Guys!", Peter repeated raising his hands like we were idiots. "Why don't he get thisthnis not the time for a realxing-holiday?!".

"He'll probably be back soon", Liam said sitting down at the couch I had already thrown myself at.

"I might be a pain in the arse jerk, but I'm not stupid. You know where he is, and you need to tell me".

"We can't", Liam said. Harry, Louis and I turned around giving him a killer-look. What did he just say? He just confessed that we knew where he was?

"Liam!", Harry whispered rolling his eyes.

"Arh..", Peter groaned and left the room like he was giving up on us.

We all sat down with a resignedly sigh.

Suddently the sound of Harry's ringtone broke the silence and as he pulled it up all of us saw the name on the display. Athelia. We all looked at each other wierdly giving him a look to answer it. Harry wrinkled his eyebrows while just starring at his phone before he brought it up to his ear answering it.

"Hello", he mumbled.

"Speaker!", I whispered and he quickly pressed on the speaker-botton.

"Hi, it's Athelia", a shaky and insecure voice sounded. "Is it you Harry?".

"Yeah, why are you calling me?", Harry said. Not in a mad way, in a firendly way but still a bit confused.

"Can... can I maybe meet up with you?".

We all gave each other confused looks. Meet up with him? Why?

"Ask why..", Louis whispered pointing on the phone.

"Sure..why?", Harry asked.

"Ehmm. I just... where are you?", she said and it sounded like she was outisde cause it was sounding blurry int he other end.

"The rehersal room, you've been here before", Harry said.

"Okay, I'll be there in two minutes". Then she hung up leaving all of us extremly confused.

"Is she planning on getting you now?", Louis said sarcasticly.

Athelia's P.O.V

I walked down the long hall towards the door in the end where I knew the big room they always rehersed in were. Without knocking I opened up the door carefully and saw Louis, Zayn, Harry and Liam sitting in some sofas eating chips and drinking water. They all turned their face to me.

"Hey", Louis said.

"Hi", I said and forced a small smile on my lips. I was afraid they did not want to talk to me, because I had broke Niall's heart. But they all loooked friendly at me, but with a look which was waiting for me to explain.

"Ehm..", I said. As I walked closer to them my heels echoed in the big hall.

"Why are you here?", Harry asked and gave me a sign to sit at a chair.

I sat down, and folded my hands on my lap. How should I explain?

"I cannot find Niall... where is he?". I decided to just say it. Not any explaining, just the question.

The boys faces looked suprised.

"You're back together?", Zayn asked scratching his head.

"No", I smiled looking down at the floor. I wish though, a tiny and almost whispering voice said inside of me. Not my own voice.

"I wan't to see him, I've realized that....". I didn't know exactly what it was I had realized? "I just.. I wanna find him. I need to see him.....I miss him".

"You do?", Liam smiled. I nodded.

"Would you tell me where I can find him?", I asked with hope in my voice. It was like I was beggin them.

A small smile appeared on Harry's lips. He leaned forward like he was about to tell me a secret.

"He missed you to much to stay, he needed to get away".

"Where is he?",  I asked. Away? What was away? Far away? I started getting nervous.

"Back in Ireland. He's staying at his mum's". Something inside of me was telling me there was hope. Ireland. With his family.

I didn't wanna ask, but I couldn't help myself. I had to.

"Did he...". I stopped licking my lips, looking at the ground. "Do you know if he still loves me?".

Their faces lightned up.

"Without a doubt, it will only take you one look and he's all yours again. Athelia, this has been the worst part of his life", Liam explained. It had? I felt sorry for being the one causing it, but still it made that heavy worried stone leave my stomach. He still loved me.

I couldn't help but smile. I had to find him. Book a flight right way and go find him.

"You realized you love him?", Harry asked carefully.

I bite my lip. "Yeah..", I said while smiling slightly at the ground.

I loved him. I truely did. Now everything was going to be alright again.

 

Across the ocean, across the sea

Starting to forget the way you look at me now

Over the mountains, across the sky

Need to see your face and need to look in your eyes

- Be alright, Justin Bieber
