Where the story left off:
After discovering Niall and Marie kissing passionately, Amanda cuts her wrist, finally letting everything collapse on top of her. Louis finds her, wrapping her wounds and cradling her. He cries, mumbling that he's "lost another girl to Niall" and about how much he loves Amanda.
Amanda hears all this, and after having a fantasy dream about Louis, kisses him passionately.
They get really into it, until Louis leaves her alone.
But she's discovered the unthinkable- she's madly in love with him.

And now-- the continuance of "Waiting for You":

When Louis leaves, it takes me a while to gather myself before walking out to the main lounge room.
I walk out of the bathroom, but before I turn the corner, I hear yelling.
I approach the noise, and stop dead at the sight. I don't speak, listening intently.
"You need to tell her!"
"I can't Lou! You know that!"
"If you don't, I will. She needs to know!"
"Because she fucking does!"
"Lou-- calm down."
"No, Niall. I'm sick of sitting back doing nothing."
"Tell her now," Louis speaks this time through clenched teeth, "or I fucking will."
"No you won't!"
"Then tell her! Tell her about Emily!"
Marie gasps, and I gasp along with her.
What the fuck did he just say?
"Emily?" I step out from where I wasn't seen, "How did you know her name is Emily?"
The room goes dead silent.
"Louis," I say forcefully and bitterly, "how did you know her name is Emily?"
"Mandy-" Marie starts, but I cut her off.
"What the fuck is going on? 'I've lost another girl to Niall?' What the fuck is that about?"
Again, silence.
"Em--" Lou starts, but this time Niall is doing the cutting off.
"Marie, well, Emily and I," he says, "we're dating."
"I figured that from the fucking making out in the closet."
Marie's cheeks turn bright red.
"Marie," I say, "what the FUCK is going on?"
"All right," she turns to Niall, seemingly calming him, "listen Mandy. A while ago, before you and Sky became 1D fans, I was a backup dancer. Liam, Niall, and Louis, well they-- they fell in love with me. I had a hard time choosing, they were all so great. I dated Liam; I was together with Louis for a while. But my heart belonged to Niall, so we finally got together. I didn't tell anyone back home. According to the public, I had dated Louis, so Niall and I had to keep our relationship secret. After a movie we tried to be in failed, I took up a stage name, the name you know me by. I figured it would take some of the negative attention away. But Niall and I had to continue to hide our relationship, from friends and family. If it got out I had dated Louis and Niall, it would look very bad."
"It is very bad," I finally find words to speak, "I can't believe this."
"I'm so sorry I didn't tell you Mandy," Niall says, stepping toward me.
I step back instinctively, shrinking away from the guy I used to want to be nothing but close to.
"Where's Skyler?" is all I can think to say.
"Outside talking to her mom," Harry says.
I nod my head speechlessly.
"I need to leave," I say.
And this time I think I mean it.
