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.

29. Leaving everything behind

Niall's P.O.V

 

"What.... Niall, wait....you can't just leave? What the....", Harry said wrinkeling his eyebrows looking confused and pissed. He wasn't smiling, just looking at me with a burning gaze in his green eyes.

"I'm sorry...", I sighed struggeling my shoulders while grabbing my lugage as the lady in the speakers mentioned my flight which was boarding. We were standing in the corner of Heatrow trying to hide, which was impossible ofcourse. A couple of fans had already spotted us and asked for pictures and signatures. But right now it didn't seem like anyone in the huge hall were noticing us. Everyone was running around with all they're lugage looking like they were in a big rush, so I guess no one had time to look at the hidden corner where we were standing all of us wearing sunglasses and big shirts. Trying everything we could not to get seen.

"What is this?", Louis said displeased. "I mean Niall, whate the hell? We've got a tour coming up and suddently you're just taking off like this?".

I didn't really know what to say to them. Just that I was sorry. I had to get away, I could not survive one more day in London. I needed to get away just for a little while to clear my head.

"I'm sorry I really am and I know it's...", I mumbled looking down at the ground.

"What? Selfish? Fucked up? Stupid?", Louis said in a rough tone making me a bit sad.

"Lou...", Liam whispered placing a hand on Louis shoulder making him silent as he could see I was getting smaller and smaller. It was obvious for them I was feeling terrible about this.

"Sorry..", Louis said in a low tone.

"I just... I really need to get away for a bit. I can't handle London right now..... I really need this", I tried to explaing in an apologetic tone hoping they would understand. I licked my dry lips and could imagine how my gaze were roaming around everywhere.

"Niall we're asking you, please don't do this..... we have a tour coming up, we need to reherse. You can't just leave like this in the middle of everything. We can't do this without you, what did you imagine? Cancelling the tour?", Harry asked.

I had no idea what I had been thinking, all I knew was that I needed to get away. And my family in Ireland had seemed like a perfect place to take some time off. So that was why I had just the night before booked a flight for myself to Ireland. Home.

"No... I promise, I'll be back soon. Before the tour!".

"But what about interviews, rehersals.. everything! Niall we're so bussy at the moment and you suddently  leaving in the middle of it only makes everything more difficult. What's happening to you man?". It was now Zayn's turn to explaing why what I was doing was ridiculous.

"Look.... we know all this with Athelia has been taking hard on you. And we really wish there was something we could do. We really do", Liam said comforting.

"Is that the reason you're leaving? Athelia?", Harry asked carefully like he was afraid I was going to break. Ofcourse that was the reason. What else would it be?

"You're sure there's no way you can stay?", Zayn asked while glanzing at the people around us making sure no one was paying attention. No one seemed to be. He pulled his hood in his big black hoodie up above his head. His face was looking a bit tired, but he still looked incredibly good with his brown deep hazeleyes and darkbrown messy hair.

"I'll be back soon, I promise guys. I'm so sorry", I mumbled biting my lip nervously. My flight was leaving soon, the lady in the speakers said it was the last call.

"Don't worry..", Louis mumbled sounding like he wasn't meaning it at all. "We'll figur it out, just promise you'll be back soon".

"I will", I said determined smiling at them. My four best friends standing there looking so worried at me, and confused at the same time.

"And you're sure you're okay?", Liam asked before he pulled me in for a tight hug.

"Yeah, I'll be fine", I said not knowing myself if I was lying or actually speaking the true.

"Have good time", Zayn smiled.

"Management is gonna kill you..", Louis laughed making me smile. "Don't worry we won't say anything".

"You guys are the best, thanks", I thanked them grabbing both of my suitcases waving at them.

"We'll just say we have no idea where you are", Harry smiled.

"Bye!", I waved at them as I walked down the long hall on my way to my gate. Hopefully leaving the big mess my life was at the moment behind. Hopefully forgetting everything. Hopefully on the way back to my old self. Hopefully heading towards something better.

Hopefully leaving her behind.

Athelia's P.O.V

My heartbeat was raising in my chest and somthing deep inside of me was shaking, making me feel dizzy. A burning pain in my heart was pounding making me gasp. Everything inside of me was on fire. The endless sadness there was hiding inside of me would never stop. It was like an infinite explosion was going on all the time in my soul and I was just acting like everything was okay and nothing was bothering me.

"I'd like to try that beautiful dress hanging in the window on please?", I said to the lady behind the desk.

"Sure, it's silk and the most exclusive piece of clothing you'll ever find. It's beautiful isn't it?", she said while finding it in my size for me. I just nodded not bothering any kind of small talk right now.

I took the dress with me to the changing room. A beautiful changing room with purple couture curtins and gold hangers and a beautiful chair I guessed had been very expensive. It fitted me perfectly and the slight feeling of hapiness I got while admiring myself in the mirror replaced the burning pain for a short moment. That was why I had been doing nothing else than shopping the last weeks. I had been walking up and down oxford street enjoying the beautiful may weaher for so many days.

I handed the dress carefully to the lady.

"I'll take it".

"Ofcourse, let me just wrap it up for you", she said bending down after ribbon and a bag.

"I've seen you walking past my shop outisde a lot these last days.. you're shopping a lot here on Oxford aren't you?", she suddently said while wrapping up my dress very meticulously.

I didn't know what to say. I moistened my lips and forced a smile on my lips.

"I guess I am...".

"Enjoying it I suppose..", she smiled carefully putting my dress into the bag.

I nodded smiling stiffly at her. Enjoying it yes, but not enough for it to make me happy no.

 

Trying to buy yourself to happiness will never work, someone once said.
