Hometown Badboy vs. Hollywood Sweetheart
"What about us?" Carter asks as he takes another sip of his drink. That's all we have been doing since I got here, drinking and just taking in each others company. It's really funny how much he has changed over the course of only a few months. I guess he had to grow up and take care of his child was the main cause of that. I don't think he minded though. Every time he looked down at the adorable little eight month old baby in his embracem a warm tender look flew on his face and he seemed to forget the fact I was sitting right across from him.
"I just think that maybe-" I was cut off by the sound of my phone ringing in my pocket. "Hold on, give me just a minute." I tell Carter and he nods. I pull out the sleek white iPhone 5 that Harry had bought me for my birthday only a few months ago. When I pull it out, and see who is calling, I start to freak out a bit. My phone lit up the picture of me and Louis a couple weeks ago at the Today Show we had just come off performing. We were both drenched in sweat but still held the warm loving smiles we always had. I stopped torturing myself and decide to answer the phone to see what he needs. "Hey Lou, do you need something?" I ask him as calmly as possible, but he doesn't automatically respond like he usually does. Instead of instantly talking to me the second I answer the phone, he's silent. This sent my mind into overdrive, coming up with about a billion different scenarios that could have occurred. He could figure out that me and Carter kissed and he was angry. Or Niall could have accidentally told him about our talk. Or he could have heard some other wild rumor that pushed off the edge and know he was done.
"Can we talk?" He asks nervously and suddenly all my theories are crushed and only one stood out. He was leaving me, he had enough of me, he finally saw that he deserved better.
"Sure, what's wrong?" I ask while getting up and walking to the other side of the cafe to have a bit more privacy.
"Amanda, you know I love you right?" He asked me and I knew that this was it. After this phone call we wouldn't be together anymore. We wouldn't be the couple that everyone envied; we would be those two people who everyone pitied.
"Of course Lou. Why? What's wrong?" I asked losing all the confidence I had, since I knew what was coming next. I listened to his ragged breathing and I could picture him sitting there pulling on the ends of his hair to get the nerves to say the next words.
"I think it's time we break up." He said plainly like the last 8 months of my life I spent with him didn't matter. Those same seven words caused my chest to tighten in pain.
"Is that what you really want Lou?" I said trying to sound strong, but instead I sounded vulnerable and weak. Every part of me was hoping to hear him say no and this was all just a joke. But of course, fate isn't so kind to people who make so many mistakes.
"Yes." He said and paused which let me hear his breath that used to relax me. "Look, Amanda it's not you it's-" He starts and for the first time since ever I find myself wanting to just slap him across the face. He was going not going to pull that on me. That might have worked sometime before, but not on me.
"Don't you dare pull out the 'it's not you it's me' card!" I said angrily into the phone as I tried my best to find him and beat him.
"I am sorry Andy-" he starts but I hang up on him not even wanting to hear the rest of what he had to say. Why couldn't he just say I am breaking up with you and just end it there? Why did he try and pity me, he knew I would be hurt, and just maybe that's why he did it. I had hurt him and was this karma coming back to get me? I just stood there letting the hot tears flow down my face, completely forgetting that Carter was sitting only a few feet away. Carter, if Louis wanted to break up with me that was completely fine with me. I was going to show him that I didn't need him, I was better off without him.
"Carter." I said and he instantly looked up. His face instantly softened when he saw my heart broken expression.
"Mandy." He whispered back as he stood up with Nikki still in his arms. He handed me Nikki and wrapped his arms around both of us and we just stood there in the middle of the cafe. Carter's arms around both me and his daughter, while silent tears stained my cheeks. "Mandy what happ-" he starts, but I cut him off by placing my lips on his. I leave him somewhat stunned and soon his lips move in sync with mine. The cheesy sparks I used to feel with Louis were missing and honestly it didn't feel right at all.
"I forgive you Carter." I mumble onto his lips as he nods and kisses me again. I was going to make Louis forever regret leaving me. If I couldn't make him regret it, then I would forget about him. If he didn't need me, then I would teach myself not to need him.
So I bet a lot of you guys completetly hate me right now, because I had Louis and Amanda break up. But this is all leading up to the first chapter of the sequel that is shall be called Untamed. I have a couple choices for the covers, and I am currently trying to narrow them down.
Landy: Is Louis and Amanda's ship name
