7. Settling for friends is harder than it looks
(Kate's pov) Everyone looked at me. Why are you looking at me? I wanted to say. But Liam beat me to the answer, "What happened with you guys?" and for once I was speechless. I looked at Harry. He looked back and then away. He wasn't here for me right now. At least in front of management. "I'm sorry." I whispered and then ran out of there, hearing screams behind me. I was going to find him. He did tell me stuff that night. He told me personal stuff. Like where he goes when he's sad or confused. I ran to their tour bus. The door was open, but guarded by security. I asked "Can I please go in?" "Yes." he said. I walked to the bedroom to see suit cases packed and ready to go with a plane ticket. It was for 3 hours from now to Ireland. I got down on my stomach and looked under the bed. There he was. "Hey." he said. He even sounded sad. My phone rung. It was Harry but I ignored it. "Hi." I said. He scooted over and patted the space next to him. I got under the bed too. "Listen you shouldn't quit." I told him, "There isn't a One Direction without you." I added. "How would you know? You don't even know any of our songs. Or that I get hate every day. You know nothing about us."
(Niall's pov) Once I said that I was a little sadder. She sighed then finally said, "What Makes You Beautiful, More Than This, Same Mistakes, Moments, Up All Night, Stand Up, Stole My Heart, Save You Tonight, I Want, Tell Me A Lie, Taken, I Wish, Gotta Be You, Every Thing About You, and One Thing." wow I thought she didn't know anything. "Umm, when did you.." I trailed off not knowing what to say. "Well I sorta looked a lot up after that night." she was truly amazing and yet she would never be mine. Listen I need to go catch my plane. Sorry." I said. She got out from under the bed and so did I. I got my bags and went to the door. "Wait." she said. I turned and she gave me a huge hug. She pulled my head down a little so she could kiss me. It felt like minutes until we separated. I would miss her, but I couldn't stay knowing she loved Harry. I finally turned and left. When I got on the plane I checked my twitter. My twitter had blown up. People already knew I was leaving. I checked Kate's twitter. It had blown up with hate letters and death threats. I felt bad about that but she would be safe with Harry. I deleted my twitter turned off my phone and tried to sleep. Even though I knew that wouldn't happen.
(Harry's pov) "Where could she be?" Louis asked. We had looked in our hotel rooms and her apartment we had called 100 times. "Guys you don't think a fan got her do you?" I asked starting to cry. Why did I feel this strongly about her? "No!" Liam said. I knew he was hoping not, but he didn't really know. •Ring ring• My phone goes off and I pick it up right away. "Hello?" I yelled into the phone. "Harry." she sounded like she had been crying. "Are you ok?" "Ya I'm fine. Where are you so I can meet up with you?" she asked. "We are just driving around looking for you. So we will pick you up." "Ok. I'm at the tour bus. I'll explain later." "Ok." then I hung up and we drive to the tour bus. When I saw her I ran and picked her up in a hug. "I was a little scared." I told her. "It's fine." she said. "How did you even know where the bus was?" I asked her. "Well umm that night I met Niall he told me stuff and I told him stuff. Not Kyle or stuff like that, but things. Anyway he said when I'm sad or scared I go to the tour bus. Then he told me where it was just incase. So I came here. He hides under the bed. He had a plane ticket already. He's on the plane right now." she sobbed. I could tell she loved him. I could see the pain.
(Louis' pov) She looked so sad. I felt bad for her. I loved her but I could tell she was already in a difficult situation. Telling her would make things worse. She already had death threats on twitter. "I'm going to go check if he left anything." "Me too." all the boys said at once. "I'll stay with Kate." i said. "Ok boys come on search." Harry said. Once they were inside I looked at her. Tear streaks down her face. She started crying again so I pulled her into a hug. "It's ok." I whispered. "No it's not ok. I made him go bad to Ireland! I tried to stop him Louis I really did." she said into my chest. "Shhh." I said trying to calm her down. "I w-want to go inside." she looked at me and said. "Ok, come on." I pulled her by the waist inside a recording studio and say her down. She put her head on my shoulder and said, "Thanks Louis. I need a friend right now. I don't want to date anyone for a while. I need to think." she said quietly. "It's ok." I said. "You love El, right? And no one else?" she asked. "Ya why?" I lied. "Well you guys just seem so right for each other. Like you really love each other. And I always think, God I want something like that." she says. "Ya. Well you'll have it someday. I promise." and I wish I could make it be me. I wish I could be the one for her. But I can't because she loves Niall and Harry. So I'll settle for friend.
