48. Odd Comfort

Louis's humming is so calming and peaceful as he rocks me, and I feel myself growing tired and faint.
He slowly lifts me off to get a cold cloth for my head, made of paper towel and cool water from the sink.
He presses it against my head, wincing as he sees me slowly slipping into unconsciousness.
But I stay awake somehow, and he starts to hum again.
Then he stops, and I'm too weak to open my eyes to see what's wrong.
"Why did you have to do this?"
I can't respond, but it seems as if he's speaking to himself rather than me.
He thinks I'm asleep.
I stay quiet.
"You're so stupid, I'm so stupid. I shouldn't have let you do this, it's all my fault. I should've been honest with you from the beginning. I lost her, and now I'm going to lose you."
He starts to cry.
The touch of his warm tears against my face brings me odd comfort.
He starts to kiss my face in random places, tears hitting my cheeks and forehead.
"I love you," he chokes out, "I love you so much and you can't even stand me. You barely even know I exist. I've lost another girl to Niall."
I'm so confused.
My head is spinning, both from my faintness and from his words.
"I wish I could tell you this. Dammit, why the fuck didn't I tell you before?"
He's still crying.
"I should be the one with slits on my wrist. At least Niall cares for you as a friend. You hate me. And you heard that conversation with Harry about my stalker. You think it was you."
He scoffs.
"It couldn't be you. You're so beautiful. But everything was going so great between us, I just couldn't risk it. And now I've lost you. Damn fans ruin everything. Fuck, I love you."
His tears get heavier, and I can tell he's trying to stifle his sobs.
I yearn to speak to him, to open my eyes and hold his face in my hands and tell him that everything is okay.
But I'm too far gone, and I drift to sleep.

I hope you guys are enjoying my updates! I know they are very short chapters but I hope the fact that I do them pretty often makes up for it!
Thank you guys so much for all the support and great feedback!
You literally have no clue how much it means to me!
This is a very emotional chapter, with a bit of confusion I'm sure but everything will be cleared up soon!
I also wanted this to be very hard-hitting because I don't know when the next time I'll be updating is!
(I leave for Europe today, oh, by the way, I live in America.)
I will try to update if I can, but I will also make sure to be writing!!
For future reference, you may want to read my other fanfics, just a suggestion.

I love you all so much!
Keep me in your thoughts and prayers when I go on my trip!
Especially in your Directioner prayers- I'm going to be in a London airport and I've been dying to know if the boys will be there!!
Happy Easter to all, Happy Passover to some.
Love you all!
Emily xoxo
