Waiting for You

Amanda and Skyler get the chance of a lifetime when they are personally invited to go on tour with their favorite band, One Direction. As relationships develop, secrets are revealed, and it starts to become unclear what will unfold. But the only thing the girls know for sure is that with these boys, love is always an option.
Co-written by Heather Tomlinson and Emily M. Horan, author of More Than One Direction, and the sequel, Choosing One Direction.


41. A Beckoning

I head backstage after I'm done with my little self-pitying fest.
I find Skyler and cling onto her.
She can tell that I've been crying, but she knows that I won't want to talk about it.
I rest my head on her shoulder while we sit on a couch and I pray that Louis doesn't come around.
The boys walk past us to get onstage, but that's the most we see of them once the concert starts.
Then Skyler tries to talk about it all.
"So what's wrong baby?" she asks as she fixes my messy hair.
I don't know where to start, so I try to be as thorough as possible without saying much.
"I'm just so sick of all of this. The fans hate me. Louis hates me. Niall never has and never will have feelings for me. I don't belong here. I just want to leave."
"So leave."
"Yeah," she looks dead serious, "why not?"
"Because, I don't know, you-"
"I'll be fine. We barely see each other anymore anyway."
"I'm sorry."
"Don't be; you've been busy. I've been busy. But maybe going home is for the best."
"Yeah," she says, trying her best to reassure me, "listen, no fans know where we live. You'll be away from all of that. Louis and Niall are touring. You need some time to figure everything out."
"Go home," I say to convince myself.
She nods her head.
I stare at her for a long time silently.
But inside, my self-conflict is going wild.
My love for Niall, my devotion to Louis, and my friendship with Skyler all beg me to stay.
But my will to leave and go home to find peace gets stronger, and I find myself envisioning my warm bed, with me cuddled up in it.
I decide.
I get up, pick up all my things, even though I've just gotten here, hug Skyler, and walk out the door.
