15. Avalanche

When our lunch is over, we pack everything up and head back home.
"Want some ice cream?" Louis asks on our way back, to which I happily accept.
We find an ice cream shop, where a group of girls are eating inside.
We find a table, and start talking about what we're going to order.
Then I hear them- the whispering.
"Ew, she's so ugly."
"She's fat too."
"What the hell Louis?"
"He could do better."
"He has done better."
"Don't you mean he HAZ done better?"
"Well I'd rather him gay than with her."
"At least Harry is attractive."
"Is she even a girl?"
The voices bounce around in my head, shattering my every thought. They find their way to my heart, which starts beating faster and faster with each sentence ricocheting off of it.
I stand up.
"What's wrong?" my ears hear his words but my brain doesn't comprehend the meaning.
I get up from my chair and walk outside, where the noises are drowned out by the repeating voices in my head.
I calm myself down my sitting on a bench outside the ice cream shop.
I breathe deeply and slowly, and Louis finally joins me.
Then I give in to the temptation.
I check twitter.
There's two trending topics-
#wtflouis and #louisandfuglyforever
The first is a collection of confused girls over Louis's choice in girlfriend.
The second is worse, joking tweets about if Louis and I were to be married, how ugly our kids would be and stuff like that.
It's all too much to handle.
"Get me home," I say to Louis, and we both get in the car.
He drives me home, and I race into the house as soon as the car is in park.
I run upstairs to the bathroom and slam the door, where I finally allow my tears to flow unceasingly.
I hear a knock at the door.
"Mandy?" It's Skyler, "Are you okay? Is this about Niall? Honey, you're too good for him anyway. He doesn't deserve someone great like you liking him."
"What?" a slightly distant male British voice says.
Louis was standing there, and Skyler didn't know.
Now Louis knows I like Niall.
Everything is ruined.
I look down at the sink, my vision blurred from crying.
There's a knife there, from when Skyler opened up her new razor.
It looks tempting.
I was in the mountains about a half hour ago, but now the avalanche is falling.
I don't know if I'll make it out alive.
