Forever Young

Marie was an average girl. Until she wasn't.


24. It's Gotta Be You

I look at the clock.  2:45.  It had been 4 hours since I had my chat with Laura.  She must have left when I had fallen asleep.  I sigh, and flip over.  I hear my door open and close.  I immediately pretend like I’m asleep, in case it’s Niall.  Then, I hear singing.  I slowly and carefully open one of my eyes, to see him.  Niall.  I shut it, and he keeps singing.


“Girl, I see it in your eyes, you’re disappointed.  ‘Cuz, I’m the foolish one that you’ve anointed, with your heart.  I tore it apart.  And girl, what a mess I’ve made upon your innocence and no woman in the world deserves this, but here I am, asking you for one more chance.  Can we fall, one more time, stop the tape, and rewind.  Oh, and if you walk away, I know I’ll break, ‘cuz there is nobody else.  It’s gotta be you, only you. It’s gotta be you, only you.  Now girl I hear it in your voice and how it trembles, when you speak to me I don’t resemble who I was.  You’ve almost had enough.  And your actions speak louder than your words, and you’re about to break from all you’ve heard, But don’t be scared, I ain’t going nowhere.  I’ll be here, by your side, No more fears, no more crying.
But if you walk away, I know I’ll fade.  Cause there is nobody else.  It’s gotta be you,
Only you,  It’s got to be you, Only you.  Oh, girl, Can we try one more, one more time?  One more, one more?  Can we try one more, one more time?  I’ll make it better.  One more, one more, Can we try one more, one more...  Can we try one more time to make it all better?  'Cause it's gotta be you, It’s gotta be you, Only you, Only you.  It’s gotta be you.  Only you.  It’s got to be you.  Only you.”


Then, he stands up, and leaves.  I start to tear up.  Why did this have to happen?  If he hadn’t cheated, I wouldn’t be where I am now.  We could be on a date somewhere, happy.  And, it’s all Brooke’s fault.  She is such a little home wrecker.


I hear someone walk in my room.  I pretend to be asleep.  “Marie, I know you’re not sleeping.”  Kianna sighs.  I flip over.  “You heard him sing this time, didn’t you?”  She asks.  I nod, because I am still speechless.  “He’s done that once, every hour.”  She says.  I feel my bottom lip start to tremble.  She hands me a tub of Ice Cream.  I give her a weak smile.  “Thanks, Kianna.”
