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.

37. You changed your mind?

The weather was grey and windy as I one tuesday afternoon in the middle of june arrived at Heatrow airport. People were walking around in coats even though it was summer. I dragged my black suitcase with me down the long hall from my gate to the arrival department. After spending one and a half month at my mum's I decided it was one time to go back. The tour was beginning in only two days and rumours were starting to go around. People was making conspirations cause i hadn't showed up to the last interviews and performances. The boys hadn't told anyone were I had went yet, so the whole fandom and a lot of the media were literally going crazy.

As I walked down the hall in my own thoughts someone suddently pulled in my shirt from behind. "Niall?!". I turned around and 3 girls in the age of 11-14 were standing smiling big at me. One of them looking like she was two seconds from exploding of excitement.

"Hey girls", I smiled.

"You're back? Where have you been?!", they started asking. I just smiled at them and signed their arms and shirts. In less then five minuts about 20 more girls gathered around me, pulling in me, asking me questions and a few papparzies started taking pictures of me. After almost two months without this, it all felt so overwelming. I had really been enjoying just being with my family, not having to face the media everyday. I had been enjoying hiding away from everything. I guess this was how it was, no time to get home and get used to my real life again. It all came like a slap in the face. Paps, fans, everything. I tried to stay cool, smile, hug, sign, do what  I usually did.

I finally got trough the crowd of paps and fans. I got out of the airport and there they were. Those four boys I had left behind a few weeks earlier. Waiting for me, with big smiles and... flags?

"Hey, so good to see you!", Louis was the first one to yell as I walked up to them. He waved eagerly with his flag. I gave them all a quick hug, still confused why they had even comed. We travelled all the time, and we never came to pick each other up. Maybe it was because we weren't used to being away from each other for such a long time.

"It's good to be back, but I sure did not expect this..", I mumbled with a smile.

"We thought we would suprise you guys, now everything's good again. We're a little disapointed though we did not get a text or anything, but who cares... you're back together!", Harry said. I wrinkled my eyebrows. What on earth was he talking about?

"By the way, where is she?", Zayn asked putting an arm around Louis. He lifted his eyebrows, like he was waiting for me to say something. Who was she? What was they talking about? I tried to think of something that could be the reason, but I couldn't. Back together? Who?

"What are you talking about? Who's she?", I asked confused. They all looked even more confused than me.

"Athelia?..", Harry mumbled like it was obvious.

"Where is she?", Liam said. They were getting me so confused. They didn't get yet that we weren't together anymore or what? They forgot we broke up months ago? They forgot she was the whole reason I took off?

"What...guys, is this a joke? I haven't seen Athelia for months, you know that..".

"She came to find you", Liam said confused in a low voice. He looked at the ground and the other boys happy faces fainthed a bit.

My heartbeat was raising slowly as the words go into my head.

"She did?!", I exclaimed. The boys nodded.

"She called us up, asking where you were, we even watched her go on board on the flight to Ireland..", Harry explained. He sounded sad, but also very confused.

"She told us she loved you", Liam said. My heart skipped a beat and I had to play the words on repeat in my head a few times, before I realized what he had just said. She still loved me? Why hadn't she showed up? What wen't wrong? Athelia had been in Ireland? What had made her change her mind? I was cheering up because I got the feeling that there was still hope for us. But again my heart shrank as I realized something had made her change her mind. I didn't know what to think. My mind wasn't able to think. My body was in shock. I was speakless. Mixed emotions were rushing though me making me dizzy.

"I have to sit down..", I mumbled and took myself to the head. The boys helped me sit down at a big brick bench. I rested my spinning head in my hands and Liam layed his hands on my shoulder.

"She came after me?", I whispered and looked up from my hands. I took a deep breath.

"I don't get why she didn't come...she was so sure", Louis said.

"What day exactly did she go on that plane?",  I asked them. The boys looked clueless at each other.

"Hm..", they just mumbled.

"I don't remember..", Zayn said biting his lip with a concentraded gaze in his hazeleyes.

"I do..wait a sec", Harry exclaimed and pulled up his phone from his pocket. "It was the day we had reharsel so damn early I remember...". He pressed on his calender and rolled back a month.

"It was the... 20th of may!", he said. I tried to think back on the day Kattie had comed. Could it be? No, it couldn't. It was impossible. The exact day, the exact moment. Besides how would she have seen us? I didn't understand. But I couldn't stop thinking about the fact, that she still loved me and that she had actually comed for me. It made me mad, thinking about that something apparantley had made her change her mind. I had no idea what it could be though.

"Guys, what if she realized she didn't love me anyway?", I asked looking up at them with a worried look. God how I hoped, that was not the case.

It wasn't hard to see the boys didn't know what to say. Obviously they couldn't deny the fact that, that might be the reason.

"It must be somthing else", Louis said.

"Yeah, she sounded so sure. Not like someone who would just change their mind that quickly", Liam agreed with Louis and Harry and Zayn slowly nooded in agreement.

"Something did happen though... something that could be the reason, but it's still impossible".

"What?", Harry asked.

"Around the 20th of may, I think..... if might as well be the 10th, but it also might be the 20th of may. Then I....I sort of kissed someone else".

The boys all wrinkled their eyebrows looking wierd at me. Liam looked a bit choocked.

"You did what Niall? If you want her back, I'm not sure running around kissing other girls will do it", Liam said, sounding a bit disapointed.

"Well how was I supposed to know she was gonna show up?!", I hissed trying to defend myself. "Besides, it didn't mean a thing. She kissed me, and I pushed her away, and I guess she didn't stay long enough to see that I actually rejected her".

"Hm.. if that's what happened, thats litteraly the most unlucky thing I have ever heard. I mean guys, what's the change that Athelia was there looking at you the exact day that exact moment?", Zayn said. He scratched his head, with a look telling he was in deep thoughts.

"Not big, but it's there".

"Also... who was that girl Niall?", Harry smiled cheekily at me.

"No one, I cannot stand her".

"C'mon, who was she?", Louis asked, not in the cheeky way like Harry. More serious.

"It was my cousin..", I mumbled a bit emberresed.

"Your cousin?", Louis repeated, and it was obvious he was trying to hold back a smile. He glanzed at Harry who was already smiling.

"I know it's fucked but..yeah".

"Well, we'll get back to teasing you later right now only one thing is importnant", Harry said. "You need to find her".

 

 

 

Cause nothing could ever, ever replace you

Nothing can make me feel like you do

You know, theres no one I can relate to

And know we won't find a love that's so true
