17. Blurry

I felt lightheaded, “Who is it?” I whispered quietly to Liam. He looked at me before walking to the doorway silently, he leaned over and looked through without being seen. He turned back around and looked at me, he didn’t have to say anything for me to know who it was.
“I don’t wanna see him,” I said weakly. My head was pounding, “Can I have some aspirin?” I asked him, pointing to a cabinet next to the fridge. He pulled out the bottle and threw it to me. I caught it and quickly swallowed two pills.

“Why are you pushing him away like that?” He asked me quietly. I could hear Louis going off on Niall in the living room.

I was asked this before by Louis, “Because,” I said lightly, “Because a guy can’t just leave for two weeks, and come back thinking everything would be perfectly normal. ‘Cuz it’s not going to be.”

I felt dizzy, I grabbed hold of the counter under me and closed my eyes. I opened and I was fine. I ignored it.

“Listen, let’s say you are head over heels in love with this girl, ok?” He nodded cautiously, “You never tell her anything about your feelings because you think you’ll get hurt.” He nods again and listens closely. “Finally, one day she confesses her love for you as well but she doesn’t know you feel the exact same way. Then BAM,” I threw my hands up into the air for emphasis, “she just leaves. You are absolutely shocked and start to wonder if you did something wrong. You worry day and night, you can’t eat, you can’t drink, you can’t even think straight. And at one point you even start imagining that she is there with you.” I stop to catch my breath. Liam is now sitting on the island in the middle of the kitchen watching me closely, he seemed deep into thought.

“Ok, now listen to this. You ready?” I ask him as I’m ready to continue. He blinks and looks over at me, “Then, she just comes back from wherever she went to and expects you to act like nothing happened. You do your best to act like you are fine but at one point you break. You just crack and feel like shit. Wouldn’t you feel the same?!” I yelled at him quietly.

We just sit there in silence and I let him process everything. I sighed and looked at the doorway and I see Zayn standing there. He smiles lightly, showing me everything is going to be fine. I’ll be fine. Someday. I felt heat rising in my cheeks, not from being in embarrassed but it was different.

“That sucks,” Liam whispered, “I didn’t know you felt like that. You seemed fine. I mean, these past two weeks… you had a few off days but-“

“I know, Liam.” I faked a smiled, and closed my eyes again as I felt the room spinning. I opened them and the feeling didn’t go away. I started to sweat and I felt flushed. I stood up, thinking I should go outside for some fresh air to cool me down and relax myself. I took a few steps towards the back door, taking deep breaths as I did so. I was shaking, my whole body was shaking.

I couldn’t do it. I could feel my heart beating fast, I thought it was going to jump out of my chest.

“Z-Zayn,” I said weakly, not realizing what was happening. I started falling backwards.

“Juli,” I heard Zayn yell as he ran towards me catching me and lifting me up to steady me. ”Juli, what’s wrong?”

My sight was blurred. I could barely make out his figure. His voice seemed distant, like he was standing at the end of a tunnel and I was on the other side waiting for him. Everything went black.
