14. The Tree

My phone died about four days ago. Yuhp, four. I haven’t bothered to charge it because I knew I couldn’t handle it. I couldn’t handle not having Niall here with us. It wasn’t “normal” without him.
The only one I told about the last text that I had sent Niall was Louis. Louis was my problem solver. He could help me with anything, from the most silliest things to something more serious like my Niall issues. Well, it isn’t serious serious, but everyone is started to think that it’s taking it’s toll on me.

“Juli, it’ll all be alright.” Louis rubbed my head as we laid in my bed. i had trouble sleeping, so he came into my room this time.

“I think,” I sighed, tucking my hand underneath my pillow and facing Louis, “I think I may have ruined everything…” I closed my eyes. I could feel Louis lay on my pillow with me, I could feel his light breath on my face.

“Juli, love,” He said lightly, “There’s only one way to find out.” I opened one of my eyes and gave him a strange look. He nodded towards my dresser where my phone had been sitting since it had died. I let out an annoyed sigh.

“But what if-” Louis cut me off before I could finish.

“But what if nothing! You love him, he loves you. End of story!” He said as I stood up and grabbed my phone off the dresser and stuck in into the charger. I pressed the small green button and waited for it to turn on.

“Yeah, but-“

“No buts!” He pointed to my phone, which was now fully on and ready to go. I picked it up and looked at my messages. 5 new messages.

I read them out loud for Louis to hear.

I know, but you didn’t mean it. You’re dating Harry.

Juli, why are you ignoring me? We should talk about this.

How long did you feel this way?

Are you alright.

And there was one other message, but it was just for the phone bill. Typical. I looked up at my phone to Louis who was sitting up and staring at me.

“What?” I asked.

He shrugged, “Aren’t you gonna answer him?”

“Nope.” I walked over to my bed and laid back down with him. I closed my eyes, trying my best to shut out the world. Not working.

“And why is that?” He laid back down and started at the ceiling with his hands placed gently on his chest.

“I don’t want to have that kind of conversation over… over texts.” I sighed and laid the same way as he did.

“Can I ask you something, peaches?” He asked after a few minutes of silence.

“You just did,” I smirked, not releasing my gaze from the ceiling.

“Can I ask another?”

“You just did…” I giggled, as I looked over at him. He was smiling, and I could tell him was stifling a laugh.

“I’m sorry, go ‘head Louis. You know you can ask me anything.” I turned over onto my stomach and kept myself up using my elbows, he rolled over to his side.

“You love Niall… yet you’re,” He stopped for a minute. I felt so uncomfortable. Not with the conversation, but with my bed. I groaned and purposely rolled off my bed onto the rug and landed on my back.

I was looking up at the ceiling and I saw Louis’ head pop up above me, “Oh,” I said casually, ”please continue.” I smiled and acted as if nothing had happened. He smirked.

“You’re driving him away.” He finished. I thought about it. Was I really driving him away? I guess I was. I hated him, yet I loved him. I rubbed my palms on my cheeks, “I guess I’m still mad that I couldn’t stop him that day. I wish I had told him before, way before! Like, before I left to help my mum. I mean I told him I loved him back, that night we took care of Lux, but he doesn’t think I love love him cuz I was dating Harry. And he doesn’t know I broke up with Harry.”

He didn’t say anything, we just sat there in silence. I hated it. The silence gave me nothing to do but to think. And every time I had time to think, I’d think of him and that, that would drive me nuts. I sat up, it was 6 in the morning, and I had an hour of sleep before I woke up from a nightmare. Louis stayed awake with me all night. I gripped the bed to help myself up, “Boobear, I..” I looked down to see him sleeping like a baby. I grabbed the blanket and covered him up. I left the room quietly and walked to the kitchen. I grabbed a peach from the fridge and searched for a piece of paper. I found a clean napkin on the table and decided to use that instead. I grabbed a pen and started writing.

“I’ve gone for a walk. I’ll be fine, I just need the air. If you honestly want to know where I am, I’ll be under the tree.

- Juli “

I left a short message knowing only Louis and Harry would be able to understand it. I walked over to the living room and pulled on my jacket. I grabbed my phone and set out on my journey to the park.

I decided not to take my car. I needed the air and the walk would do me good. I bit into my peach as I strolled passed people who had been going to work, jogging, or just simply walking their dog. I walked passed this small store and a sign hanging in the window caught my attention. One Direction. It was just a normal poster of them, yet I needed to look at it. Niall. I forced myself to walk away, I had to. I knew that I was slowly killing myself with it. I looked at the last few messages that I received from Niall. It was from 3 days ago. Maybe he gave up, I thought.

Good, I don’t want him anyway.

Oh, that’s just great. I’m starting to talk to myself. How lovely. Know I really knew this was killing me.

I could see the park up ahead, I smiled to myself. What I needed was my tree. Our tree. His tree. I was now in the park. There weren’t many people, mostly older couples who were most likely here for the breath taking sunrise that I had sadly missed today. I remember once Niall woke me up and dragged me to the park. I kept asking him why but he told me to hush, and once I saw the sunrise I was in complete amazement at the colors and just how beautiful it was.

I brought myself back to Earth. I could see the tree now, I quickly ran towards it. I stopped about 15 meters away. I could see the back of someone’s head. I walked closer.

“Hello?” I asked, trying to figure out who it was.

I waited until the person turned around. I dropped my half eaten peach, “No…” I said in disbelief.
