17. Final Goodbye


            Niall jumped off the float, adrenalin pumping. He exchanged high fives with Harry, Liam, Louis and Zayn, as they continued to be thrilled. Everything seemed to be going their way. Niall turned, to see Evelyn near tears, and he quickly rushed to her aid.


            “What’s wrong, E?” Niall asked, wrapping his arm around her. Evelyn couldn’t look him in the eyes, sniveling into her jacket sleeve.


            “We need to talk,” she choked out, stepping out of his comforting grasp.  Evelyn wiped under her eyes, clearing the mascara as the tears streamed down her face. “If we could only have this life,” Evelyn whispered, wrapping her arms around herself in shame.    `


            “Are you alright?” Niall asked, coming forward to her, but Evelyn held out her hand. She couldn’t lead him on. Evelyn wanted to be with Niall: he was the best person in the world. It was that stupid contract and Simon Cowell.


            “I wish I was,” Evelyn replied. She cleared her throat: she had to be strong. “Niall… things… they aren’t the way they should be.”


            “Evelyn…” Niall began, his voice full of nervousy.


            “And I think we should break up,” Evelyn said, her voice cracking. Niall’s jaw dropped, his eyes frozen as they looked at her.


            “What did I do?”Niall asked, walking forward to Evelyn as tears began to fall again off her face. “I love you Evelyn.”


            Evelyn froze. That was the first time he had ever told her that. Ever. She loved him. He was perfect. Evelyn just wanted to reach over and kiss him, but remembered Simon. It was Niall or ruining his dream. Evelyn knew Niall deserved to live out his dreams- everything that he had hoped and dreamed for- much more than to be stuck with her.


            “And… I love you too,” Evelyn choked out, brushing the tears away. “But I can’t let you risk everything for me.”


            “I will risk everything for you,” Niall whispered, brushing a loose strand of blonde hair out of Evelyn’s face. She leaned forward, resting her head on his shoulder. Evelyn wished she could have him, but Niall deserved better anyway.


            “I can’t go on Niall,” Evelyn murmured. “You deserve to live out your dreams and I can’t hold you back from them.”


            “Evelyn… please,” Niall whispered, closing his eyes. Evelyn removed her head from his shoulder and backed away. “I always knew I was lucky to have you: your smiling eyes, beautiful laugh, and outlook on life. I just… I just thought I would never lose you like this.” They stood in silence for a moment. Niall stared at the ground, his eyes beginning to shimmer as tears threatened. Be strong, he thought. Evelyn bit her lip, staring at the sky as water ran down her face. If only Niall knew the reason…


            “I never thought I would lose you either,” Evelyn whispered. Niall looked up, their eye locking. “You are perfect. You’re funny and charming. I fell in love with you because of your eyes.”


             Evelyn tried to laugh, but she couldn’t. Her eyes turned away from Niall’s. Don’t look back, she thought.


            “I love you,” Evelyn repeated, her eyes wandering the sidewalk. “But it isn’t just you and me. There is a brick wall blocking us. With one word, you can disappear. You won’t understand, but one day I will tell you.”


            “Evelyn… please.”


            “But for now… I’m afraid… this is goodbye.”
