Hometown Badboy vs. Hollywood Sweetheart
"It started all back when I was 13, Carter was my best friend's brother. But even if I was best friends with his sister, I hated him with a burning passion. No matter how much people tried to get us to be civil towards each other, we refused I hated him and he hated me. We went all through sixth grade hating each other never speaking unless it was to insult each other. During seventh grade we had the same elective class, which was art. I knew no one else in that class expect him. He knew almost everyone in that class, but hated them all, so he tolerated me and I tolerated him. After a few weeks we had become inseparable. We had become each other's other half, I was the yin to his yang. We could function separated but we worked best together. I pushed him to believe in himself to become a better person." Niall interrupted me as I told him the story of how it all began with Carter.
"Like you push Louis to try harder and never give up?" He asked speaking for the first time since I started the story.
"Exactly like that, but I pushed Carter a million times more than I ever push Louis. Louis barely needs any help, he's going down the right path all on his own, but Carter doesn't. You know no one else, but me knows and well now you, but Carter does drugs when he gets stressed. He used to get into horrible arguments with his parents, and when he would he would leave go down to the ghetto parts of town, buy weed and walk down to the local park to smoke it. Sometimes it was a mixture of drugs and alcohol or just one or the other." Niall stops me again letting his own opinion in the conversation.
"Amanda, I am not supposed to know this but a couple of months ago...erm Louis actually had bought some erm drugs." I stare at him wide eyed as he told what he overheard.
"Wait WHAT!" I shout.
"He never had any Liam talked some sense into him before he could do anything too stupid, it was when he was having a hard time with management. He did it just to piss them off, but did you know what Liam said to talk sense into him." Niall asked me as all the thoughts of Carter seemed to slip away.
"No." I said softly as I look into Niall's gleaming blue eyes.
"He said: 'What do you think Amanda would think if she found out you did that.' His face changed completely and he gave it to Liam who flushed it down the toilet. You know even without knowing it you have been pushing Louis in the right direction." He said as I let a small smile form on my lips at the fact that Louis choose the right choice.
"Niall, I know that Louis loves me and honestly Niall I love him to death too, but after everything I've been through with Carter. It's hard to just forget him and all the memories we shared. All the battles we fought together they are what made me who I am. Do you why I am so against drugs, why I spend so much money on anti-drugs charities." I pause and look at Niall for his react to my questions, but he only sits patiently waiting for me to go on. "Because I have seen Carter destroy his own life, with it. I've seen him almost dying from overdospes, because of drugs and alcohol." I said as tears gathered in the corner of my eyes.
"You like him don't you?" He asked and I only shake my head at him.
"Niall it hurts me to admit this, but I do and at one point I thought that I actually loved him." I ksaid looking off into the distance as Niall wraps his arms around my shoulder and pulled me into a hug.
"I know that what I am about to say doesn't sound right, but don't you think that maybe you should talk to Carter? Maybe talking to him about everything you just told me, will help you sort your feelings out?" Niall said into my hair as he rubbed my back trying to calm me down. We stayed there for a while just huddled together as the time passed slowly around us. Eventually Niall fell asleep as I stay wide awake as his words ran about a million miles per hour through my mind. I set Niall down on the couch and place a blanket around him. I kiss his forehead, grab my phone off the coffee table and walk into my room. Where Nikki laid still sound asleep sucking on her thumb with a smile on her face. I search under the bed for my large suitcase and after a few seconds I finally grasp it. After a small tug I pull it out and grab a black hoodie that was sitting in the top. I throw it on before walk over to the bathroom and throwing my hair into a ponytail. After I do that I walk over to my bed and smile down at Nikki before picking her up gently so I don't wake her up, I wrap the blanket around her fragile body tightly so she wouldn't get cold. I hold her tightly against my chest as her small fingers find a strand of my hair and wrap it around her finger while playing with it. A small smile finds it's way to my lips as Carter's little girl rests in my arms peacefully. I silently slip out of my hotel room while trying to make too much noise so I didn't wake up Niall, who was snoring on the couch. After I make it into the hallway I let a deep breath go before heading down the hall as I try to remember the name of the hotel that Carter was staying at. Which he had told us, when he tried to convince him to come and hang out with me and Louis. I hadn't heard from Louis in the last couple of hours, but right now that seemed like a good thing. Since I didn't want him to find out about the stupid decision I was about to make. I go down the hotel's elevator, and end up in the lobby; which thankfully was empty as I made my way to the street to grab a cab. A few tries later one stops in front of me.
"Where to sweetie?" The woman in her later 30's asked me as she leaned against the back of her seat.
"To Seaside Hotel, please." I said as I slightly tightened my hold on Nikki.
"That will be about $45 bucks okay, hon." She said as I nodded my head before we drove off in search of the only person who could fix or break me.
She regretted me. That seemed the only running through my mind. Amanda kissed back, yet she kicked me out and told she didn't love me. Her angry words and expression seemed to keep appearing in my mind even after trying to push it away. I missed her, it honestly didn't matter how many times I tried denying it to myself deep down I did. I missed the way she would always talk me out of going and doing stupid things. The way she could also make me feel guilty about getting high or drunk. How she would always let me come over and rant about the fights between me and my dad. She would listen to me, every single word, even if it was 3 in the morning she would somehow always stay awake. She had done so much for me and I ever even noticed how much she did for me.
"WATCH WHERE YOUR GOING!" Some random guy shouted at me, as I quickly apologize and keep walking. I hadn't even noticed but only across the street was the large hotel that me and Mackenzie had been staying at. My parent had rented us out the penthouse so we at least got separate rooms. I don't think that I could ever sleep in the same room as the person who destroyed my life. My legs move without my permission and after going up the elevator I arrive at the door to the penthouse. I pull my key card out of my wallet and slide it into the slot. It blinks a green light which signals that I am allowed inside. I walk in, feeling almost robotic as I move around slipping my arms out of my coat and placing it on the back of the couch in the living room. I waddle my way into the kitchen and make a simple cup of coffee to calm my nerves. As I lean against the granite counter top, I hear the sound of voices echoing around the room. This somehow slips me out of my robotic state and my mind starts taking control of my body again. I walk around following the noises that were getting louder and louder with each step. Now I could finally make out what the noises were giggles and moans that seemed to me a mixture of both a guy and a girl. The first thought that occurs to me is that someone snuck into the room and they were probably just having sex in one of the rooms. Instead when I open the door to the room I see, Mackenzie and some random guy. She was straddling him as his arms creeped around her naked body, just how my hands had done once.
"I am glad I didn't bring our daughter home with me. I would hate for her to get a bad example from her mother." I said sternly at her as she freezes, but doesn't even bother to turn and look at me. Mackenzie moves off the guys and slips on one of the hotel's robe around her body and motions for me to walk out of the room. I follow her, in total amazement that she was so calm about this.
"Talk Mackenzie, how long have you been cheating?" I asked with my arms crossed on my chest as I stand in the living room. "How long have we been married?" She asks me while staring intently at her perfectly manicured hand that I paid for.
"About 6 months." I said with a icy tone.
"About 6 months then." She says off handily like it was no big deal.
"So you have been cheating on me our entire marriage?" I ask not at all hurt but more disgusted at her.
"Carter, little heads up when have I ever been faithful to you?" She said responding my question with a question of her own. I stand speechless as she lets out an annoyed sigh, before taking my hand and pulling out the door. "Come back in around three hours we should be done by then." She said shutting the door in my face as I stand outside the room. I don't even bother trying to get back inside, what's the point? Instead I walk around the hotel endlessly trying to find something to do to entertain myself. I find a small café, which was surprisingly opened even though it was only three in the morning. I order a cup of decaf coffee and sit down with only my thoughts as my company. I had messed up my chances with Amanda and to go along with that I let Mackenzie make a complete fool out of me. I grab my phone out of my pocket and dial Amanda's number hoping she would actually answer my call. I sit there listening to the rings as my heart pounds in my chest all I want is one chance, just explain to her one chance.
"Hello?" She finally answers, I shut my eyes loving the way her voice sounded so clear and near.
