Broken Hearts & Last Goodbyes. Lacie's P.O.V

Lacie's Point of View of the book, 'Broken Hearts and Last Goodbyes' written by Megan Jones.
Four best friends go to London for the summer and end up meeting the boys of their dreams. Literally, the boys they have dreamt about for years. Everything starts going great. Then people are betrayed, fights break out, tears are shed, and people change. The summer ends up being nothing like we expected.


9. The Club.

We decided to take seperate cars. Niall, Louis, Liam, and I in one car. Jacki, Harry, and Shayla in the other. Liam sat in the front passanger seat as Lou drove. Obviously, leaving Niall and myself to sit in the back.

  "What club are we going to tonight?" I asked curiously. 

"Funky Buddah!" Niall and Liam said symotaneously. 

"Oh true." I laughed, "I should have known that. I'm excited. I've never really been clubbing before. I'm not much of a dancer anyways." 

  "Well you better dance tonight!" Replied Niall. 

"We'll see." I said looking at him. He grabbed my hand and said, "Please." 

'I guess so." I sighed. 


  I laughed and told Louis to turn the radio on. After about fifteen minutes of driving we were right up the street from Funky Buddah. There was so much traffic, and the place was packed. I could hear the music from the car. I could see cameras flashing, and a long line at the entrance.

  "Wow. Is there always this many people?" I asked. 

"Yeah pretty much. I mean, it is the hottest club around. And it is a Friday night." 

"Yeah, that makes sense." 

"But we don't have to wait in that line, thank God. We just get to go right in. Because, you know, we're One Direction." Laughed Louis. 

I laughed with him, "Yeah, thank God is right. I have to piss so bad." 

"Too much info, Lace." Said Liam holding his hand up in the air. I took out my phone and called Shayla. 
"Hey!" she answered. 

"Do you see all these people?" 

"Yeah, oh my God. Oh well, Harry said we get to go right in and skip the line!" 

"Yeah that's what Louis said, too!" 

"Hang on, Harry wants to talk to you." 

"Oh, ok."  I heard Harrys voice in the background,

"No. Stop. Forget it." 

"Just fucking talk to her, Harry." Said Shayla.

I was starting to get aggrivated and confused. Harry finally took the phone.  "Hi, Lacie."

  "Hey Haz!" 

"I was just wondering, have you talked to Megan since we left the house?"

  "Um no, why?"

  "Just wondering."

  "Oh. Well no, I haven't. If I hear from her I can let you know if you want though." 

"Could you please?"

"Yeah! Alright, I'm going to hang up though now. I'll see you guys inside!"  I hung up the phone just as we pulled into a parking spot. I hopped out of the car and fixed my dress. I checked my reflection in the window of the car next to us and made sure my hair was still looking good. Taking a deep breath in, I walked around to the other side of the car and went to meet up with the other boys. They were getting mobbed by people. Everyone was asking for their pictures, and I started to get really self-conscious. Just as I went to walk away someone grabbed my arm. It was Liam. "Come on! Take some pictures with us!" He said.

"Oh no, I really can't." I tried to pull back.

"Lacie, you look beautiful! Let's go!" I hesitaded and got in between Liam and Louis. Liam's arm around my shoulder, and Lou's on my waist. I wrapped my arms around both of their waists as well. After a few photos like that Niall waved me over to him. I walked over and he pulled me close. Putting his arm around me and whispering in my ear, "Don't worry babe. You look perfectly fine, ok? I promise."

I just looked at him and smiled.  There were people shouting at us, "Who's that Niall?" "Niall, what's her name?" "Are you two together?"

He looked at everyone and said, "Guys, calm down. We're not together, just really good friends. Her name is Lacie, and she's a really cool girl. Now if you don't mind, we're here to have a good time tonight. That's what we intend on doing." He removed his arm from around me and walked towards the door.

Liam came up to me and said, "Don't worry about what he said. Ignore it." 

I pulled Liam off to the side, "He said we're just friends, Liam. How could I ignore that? I mean I know he hasn't asked me out yet. But come on now, he could have at least said we were talking or something. Why did I even bother coming?" 

"Lacie, it's better that people don't know for now anyways. You would get torn apart by the press. When he finally decides to ask you out, and you guys start to actually date then everyone can now. But until then, it's better to keep you guys on the down low. Let's just enjoy tonight, ok? You look lovely." 

"Thanks, Liam. Alright, let's go do this." He hugged me and we started walking in together. Through the mobs of people, and all the flashing lights we finally made our way in. There were strobe lights going, and the music was so loud I could barely hear myself think. I looked around and saw everyone else already at the bar.

Liam and I joined them all. I sat in between Jacki and Shayla and sighed.

"What's wrong?" Said Shayla. 

"Nothing." I said forcing a smile. "Nothing at all." 

"Okay!" She said turning to the bartender ordering a drink. My smile faded and turned into more of a frown. I was really hurt by what he had said. But I made it a goal not to let it show tonight. I could see Niall looking at me out of the corner of my eye. I glanced up at him and he turned away.

"Wow." I whispered to myself. I stood up and said, "I'm going to the bathroom." 

"Do you know where it is?" Asked Harry. 

"No. But I'll manage." 

"I can show you if you want." 

"No. Stay here, I'll be fine."  He shrugged his shoulders and started talking to Louis. I looked at Niall one more time who was looking at me again. I rolled my eyes at him and walked away. While I was trying to find the bathroom a man came up to me. 

"Hey!" He shouted. I could smell the alcohol on his breath and it made me sick.  I covered my nose and said hello.  "What is a pretty girl like you doing all by yourself, huh?" He said. 

"Trying to find the bathroom." He stumbled closer to me almost falling over.

"Here, I'll show you were it is." He said grabbing my arm and pulling me towards a hallway. I didn't pull back, I just let him lead me to wherever the supposed 'bathroom' was. We reached the end of the hallway and there was a closed door. He opened it and pulled me inside. I looked around and saw a single lamp in the corner. The dark grey paint on the walls was peeling off, and there was no carpet. The smell of dust and beer filled my nose and I tried not to vomit. There was a couch next to the lamp; a dirty one at that.

"Umm. This doesn't look like the bathroom." I said tugging away from his grip on my arm. 

"I know." He said dropping his drink on the ground and pushing me to the wall. 

"Get off of me! I mean it!" I tried to push him off of me and he squeezed me arms really tightly. 

"And what if I  don't? What are you gonna do about it?" He didn't give me time to respond. He crashed his lips onto mine and moved is body closer to me. I turned my head to the right to break apart our lips.

"What the fuck!" I shouted. "I'm serious, fucking stop."  I didn't see it coming, but out of no where the ;eft side of my face was burning. Had he struck me? I started crying. Not because I was in pain, or I was sad. But because I was furious. He took one of his hands off of mine and grabbed my neck pushing me against the wall again. He Kissed me again. Harder this time, his other hand moving up and down my body; violating me completely. I was so scared and I didn't know what to do. When he finally pulled apart from me I was raging with anger. Without thinking about it, I spit right in his face. He stumbled back in shock and wiped his eye.

"You're going to pay for that." He said. I swung my fist and it collided with the side of his face. He fell to the floor clutching his face. I kicked him once and said, "And what if I don't? You piece of shit." I spat one more time at him and ran out of the room. I nearly fell when I turned the corner. I looked up and saw a sign that said 'restroom' I ran down that hallway and found the girls bathroom. Flinging the door open I found the nearest open stall and threw up in the toilet. 

I could not believe what had just happened. I couldn't let anyone know about this, they would think it was my fault. No one would ever know about this. Ever. I stumbled to my feet and walked over to the mirror where a group of three girls were standing smoking a cigarette.

One of the girls looked at me and said, "A little too much to drink tonight?"

I laughed and said, "Yeah, let's go with that." 

One of the other girls said "I really like your dress! It looks amazing on you." 

"Thank you!" I said admiring her dark purple dress. It was short, about two or three inches above her knees. Down the side there were slits in it, revealing her perfectly flat stomach. She had on gorgeous white high heels, and a diamond necklace like I had never seen before. "Yours is beautiful, too!"

She flipped her hair and said, "I know" The other girls laughed. 

I cleared my throat and said, "Can I actually bum a smoke off one of you?" 

"yeah sure!" Said the first girl. She dug through her purse and pulled out a pack of Newports. Handing it to me she said, "My name is Allie." She pointed to the girl in the purple dress, "This is Jenna, and she's Natalie."

I took the cigarette from her hand, "I'm Lacie." I said smiling to them. 

"That's a nice name." Natalie said. "Very unique." 

I giggled, "Thanks, I get that a lot." We laughed and I lit the cigarette. We talked for about five more minutes and I finished smoking. I threw the stub into the garbage and washed my hands. The girls and I exchanged numbers and planned a day to hang out. As I walked out I saw Niall standing up against the wall. 

"Oh, hey." I said quietly.  He held out his hand and I took it. Niall pulled me into a hug. Before he either of us could say anything I heard something from behind me. "Oh my god!"  I turned around to see Natalie, Allie, and Jenna standing in the doorway of the bathroom.

"Yo- yo- you're Niall Horan." Said Jenna.

He laughed and stood up right, sliding his hand down my arm.  "Yes I am!" He hugged the girls and they looked at me. 

"Lacie! You know him!?" Screamed Natalie. 

I couldn't help but laugh, "Yes!" 

"Why didn't you tell us?" 

"I didn't know you guys liked them!" 

"Obviously! Who doesn't" Said Allie. 

We spent the next ten minutes talking and taking pictures. Once the girls walked away I turned to Niall. I opened my mouth to say something but be spoke up first. "You don't have to say anything. I do." He paused leaned against the wall again. I stood closer to him so I could hear what he was saying better. "Lacie look. I'm sorry for what I said outside. I just didn't want them to flutter you with questions. I didn't want to make anything harder on you. Please forgive me? Besides, I promised I would hang out with you tonight and I can't do that if you're mad at me." 

"Niall, I'm not mad. I mean, I was. But I'm not anymore. I forgive you."  He looked around and then pulled me in for a kiss. When we finally seperated our lips he looked at me in the eyes and said, "I'm so glad you aren't mad. Now come on, let's go party!"  I laughed as I took his hand and followed him to the dance floor where we joined the rest of the group.

Jacki and Shayla were already drunk. Louis was missing, but I figured maybe he was just getting another drink or something. The music was so loud, but I loved it. We were all dancing and having an amazing time. Niall and I were dancing close, pretty much grinding. Our faces kept touching but we didn't kiss. It was more of teasing each other to see who would make that first move. His hands were on my waist and mine around his neck. In that moment, that was all that mattered. Everyone else around me was nothing, what had just happened was nothing but a mere nightmare. It was perfect. 

The song ended and he pulled me close so he could say something in my ear. "I thought you said you couldn't dance!" 

I laughed and said, "I can't!" 

"I beg to differ! But hey, I'm going to go get another drink, do you want one?" 

"I guess I could have one! But that's it!" He pulled away and walked towards the bar. I walked over to Jacki, Shayla, Liam, and Harry. "Where's Louis!?" 

"He went to go get El!" replied Jacki. 

"Oh! I see." I started dancing again. It seemed like not even five minutes went by, but when I looked at my phone I realized that it had been almost an hour before Niall went to go get drinks. Wow, time went by fast. I yelled to Liam and told him I was going to fine Niall. He nodded his head and continued to dance with some people. When I finally found Niall he was sitting at the bar with four tall empty glasses infront of him, along with two shot glasses. 

"Oh my God, Niall!" I said sitting next to him and putting my and on his shoulder. He turned to face me and I could tell he was completely smashed. 

"Oh hey babe! I was just about to come get you!" He managed to get out of his mouth. 

"No you weren't." I said Laughing. "You were about to order some more drinks, weren't you?" 

"Yeah. to be honest I was." We sat at the bar for about a half an hour. He drank one more drink, and I chatted with the bar tender. When I looked at the time on the clock I saw that it was quarter past 3 in the morning. I stood up and threw his arm around my shoulder. "Come on, Niall. I think you're all set for tonight."

As he went to stand up off the chair he tripped and fell to the floor. I started cracking up and so did he. I grabbed his hand and helped him to his feet again. "Come on babe."  We made our way to thr crowed where we found the group. "You guys, I think it's about time we start heading home! Niall's wasted, and he needs to get some sleep!" At this point everyone was drunk besides Liam and myself. Louis was back and he too was wasted, along with Eleanor.

"I think you're right! Harry is already in the car! He said he wasn't feeling good!" 

"So you just let him go by himself while he's piss drunk? he could get hurt!" 

"He's fine! he'll manage! Besides, the car is right out front!" 

"Alright!" I said. "You drive Haz and the girls home! I'll take Niall and Louis home! He's too drunk to drive." 

"Okay! Sounds good!" We gathered everyone up and went out to the cars. Louis parked on the other side of the street. Niall, Lou, Eleanor, and I finally found his car and hopped in. Once I made sure everyone was buckled up we headed for the house.  Pulling up I could see Liam wasn't there yet. So we waited. When he pulled up I saw him get out of the car. He had a worried look on his face. Liam waved me over and once I got next to him I asked him what was wrong.

  "You're not going to like this, Lacie." 

"What! What happened?"  He pointed in the back seat where I saw Harry sitting next to a random girl. His arm around her shoulder. She had her hand on his chest and they were practially kissing.

"Are you fucking kidding me right now?" I said trying to be quiet. 

"I know. Don't say anything though, wait until we get inside. Megan and Zayn are most likely sleeping. Once Harry is in bed we'll tell her to go home."

I nodded and walked back over to Niall. Harry and the girl got out of the car holding hands. Niall looked at them and back at me. "Lacie, am I imagining things? Or is Harry with a girl that's not Megan?" He asked.

 "Nope. You're not imagining anything. He really is. And I want to flip out. I'm hoping Megan is in bed so she doesn't have to see this." 

"Yeah. That wouldn't go very well." He said walking to the front door. He mumbled something under his breath and started laughing to himself. Liam and I told Niall to be quiet and he blew us off. He was laughing over literally nothing. He swung the door open and yelled, "We're home, bitches!" Continuing to laugh, he pulled me in for a kiss; a passionate one. When I pulled apart I could see Megan and Zayn standing at the top of the stairs. Niall looked over at them and was pointing up to the stairs. He was moving his mouth but there were no words coming out. Only parts of words that didn't make any sense. Just then I saw Megans face drop, so did Zayn's. As I turned around I could see Harry and the whore walking in together. 

"Megan! Go back upstairs! Go back upstairsn Megan! Go sleep, Megan! Please go sleep!" Shouted Niall. Harry tripped over the door step and looked up at Megan.

  "Oh hey babe!" He said. 

The girl he was with let go of his hand and said, "You have a girlfriend?" Everyone turned to Megan to see her response. 

"No, sweetie. He doesn't. Not anymore." She ran upstairs and Zayn followed right behind her. 

"I think it's about time you leave, sweet heart." Liam said trying to be all angelic like he always is. 

"Yeah. I think you're right." She said turning to Harry and slapping him across the face. She walked off and went to call someone. I let go of Niall and ran out after her. 

"Who do you think you are hitting Harry like that?" 

"Excuse you? He deserved it." 

In my head I was thinking how much he really did deserve it. He deserved to be hit, he deserved Megan being mad at him, and he certainly was going to deserve a piece of my mind when I went back inside. 

"Yeah he fucked up, but you don't have a right to just go around hitting people like that." 

"Yes I can. And I did. I'm not going to say sorry or anything either."

  I sighed, "Look. You don't have to apologize. Sorry for coming off as a bitch just now. I'm not really like that. What he just did doesn't affect only you. That's going to affect all of us in the house now." 

"Yeah, well that's not my problem." She dialed a number on her phone, and held it to her ear.

I started to pace back and forth while she talked. Once she was off the phone I said, "Are you all set on a ride home? Or do you need me to bring you?" 

"I'm all set. My mom is going to pick me up. And hey, tell Harry I said goodbye and to call me tomorrow." 

"I'll be sure to tell him, but I doubt you'll get a call." I said walking away.

"Whatever." She said looking at her phone again.

As I walked up to the door I could hear someone screaming. I stated to walk a little bit faster and when I walked through the door I could see Harry sitting on the Couch and Zayn was in his face. 

"I don't want to hurt her!" Said Harry, Zayn cut him off. 

"Fuck you, you don't want to hurt her! You've hurt her enough for one person you sick bastard! You've been dating for a day and you can't even keep her! What does that say about you, Haz? It says that you're not ready for a relationship. Especially with a girl as amazing as Megan." 

I was standing in the doorway in shock when the girl who was the cause of all this tapped me on the shoulder. I looked at her in disgust, "What?" I asked.

"My mom isn't going to be here for a little bit. Can I come in and wait? It's a bit cold out here." 

"Ugh, whatever." I let her slip passed me and she went and sat next to Harry. 

"I want to be with her, Zayn! I really do. I know I'm probably not read-"

He got cut off by Zayn. "Probably not ready? Mate, you're showing up here with other girls! You're already telling her that you're in love with her. You're better off single until you're ready. Don't play with this girls heart." 

I couldn't believe what I was hearing. I looked up and saw Megan approaching the top of the stairs. It looked as if she had been crying. I looked at her, then back to the rest of the group. Harry went to say something but Megan interrupted his sentence.  "Harry, it's okay. Maybe we can try again when you're ready. But for now maybe it's best we don't rush into this. It's best we just stay friends for now, okay?" 

"But." He said tearing up.

  "No. No buts. You're not ready like I am, that's fine. It takes time. For now we'll just be the best of friends, okay?" 

"I'm sorry I'm such a fuck-up." He said throwing his arms around Megan's neck. 

"You're not a fuck up, Harry. I promise."  I walked towards everyone and sat on Niall's lap, putting my arm over his shoulder and kissing his cheek. The girl who had been waiting for her mom stood up and said, "There's my ride." She looked in Harry's direction and asked, "Will I see you again?" 

Harry looked around the room and back at the girl. "In all honesty, probably not. I need to get my shit together." 

Without a word she nodded her head and walked out the front door. Niall put his head on my shoulder and whispered, "I think it's time I go to sleep. Want to come cuddle?"

I looked at him and smiled, "Of course." I said back. I stood up and stretched as he walked over to Harry and Megan.  I walked over to Liam and hugged him. "Thanks for staying sober with me tonight." 

He laughed, "No, thank you. I'm always the one watching over the four of them. At least tonight I had some help!" I hugged him again only to be interrupted by Louis shouting as he walked up the stairs.

  "I'll take Jay's room with Liam." Said Harry. Niall and Megan hugged goodnight, and then I gave Megan a hug.

"Please take care of Niall, okay?" She said to me. 

I laughed and told her I would. Everyone said their goodnights, then Megan and Zayn went upstairs to bed. Niall, Liam, Harry and I went in the kitchen to make food. Jacki and Shayla would have been invited, but they had passed out on the couches already.

I made sandwiches for everyone. Niall wanted Peanut Butter and Jelly. Harry, turkey and cheese with mustard. And Liam grilled cheese. 

"You boys are too much work." I said handing them their food. 

"You're too much work!" said Niall laughing as if he had said the funniest thing ever.

  I rolled my eyes and got a water bottle from the fridge. 

"You don't want anything?" Asked Liam. 

"No, I'm not really hungry right now." I said back to him. "Well, enjoy your food, guys! I'm going up to bed." I walked up the stairs and into Lottie's room' where Niall and I were staying for the night. I found a pair of sweat pants on the gound and threw them on. I slid off my dress and put on a tank top. As soon as I layed down on the bed the door opened and in came drunken Niall. He didn't even bother to change his clothes. He just jumped on the bed nearly hitting me in the face with his arm.  I started laughing as I sat up and playfully punched him in the arm. He grunted and shifted onto his back. He grabbed my hand and pulled me closer. I put my head on his chest and ran my hand up and down his arm. 

"Lacie?" He said. 

"Yeah, Niall."  He sat up using his elbows for support.

"Come here, I have to ttell you a secret." 

I leaned towards him and the next thing I knew the sides of me were being tickled. I started laughing and squirmed. He moved so he was on his knees, I was on my back now and he continued to tickle me. Saying things like "Cootchi Cootchi Coo!" Things like that. I was laughing so hard, and I felt as if I couldn't breathe. I don't know how it happened, but I had fallen off the bed. He covered his mouth with his hand and started laughing. He knelt over the edge of the bed and put his hand out to help me up. I grabbed it and pulled him down too. Niall fell on top of me, and our heads collided. We sat on the floor laughing for a good five minutes. There were tears going down my face.

Finally, when we both caught our breath we stood up and got in bed. I cuddled up to Niall and put my head on his chest again, he wrapped his arm around my neck and played with my hair. He tilted my head up with his hand and kissed my forhead.

"Goodnight, beautiful." He whispered.  He had said I was beautiful before, but for some reason this time sent chills through my body. 

"Goodnight, handsome." I said back closing my eyes and falling asleep.
