Alice has to pick how she loves and learns that life is not what she expected. On the other hand, Sarah's keeping secrets that will get her into nothing but trouble.


9. Beautiful

What the fuck did she just say? I was at a loss of words, we all were, even Harry. He just stood there next to Lucy, how was now awkwardly looking around the room. Liam broke the silence first,”I’m Liam..urm.. it’s very.... nice to meet you? This is Alice, Louis and Zayn. Niall’s in the back recording.” His first statement came out as more of a question, than an actually statement.”Well it’s very nice to meet you all. I have....” I muted her out, taking in what my best friend was up against. Lucy had brown hair that was straight to the point and her bangs swept to the right side of her face. She had brown eyes, was thin, and absolutely gorgeous. Her and Sarah had many of the same qualities, but Sarahs cheek bones were more toned, which made Sarah more beautiful of the two. I didn’t stop to hear if Lucy was still talking before asking, “Harry? Would you mind having a quick chat in the hallway with me. Um.. privately?” Harry hesitated but slowly moved himself toward the door and out into the hallway. “I’m sorry Lucy, but this really can wait. I’m going to have to take the rest of the boys with me, to discuss personal... manners. Paul will keep you company.” Lusy just looked shocked as I pushed the boys out of the door and into the open hallway where Harry was nowhere to be found. About ten minutes later Liam found him in an empty recording booth.”What the hell Harry?” Liam asked, “ What happened to Sarah? You know the girl that you never shut up about.” We all looked at him waiting for an answer, that Louis saw, was never coming soon because he asked, “Well are you going to answer? I mean we need answers, Harry. This is all quite confusing for us. One minute you're telling us you HAVE to go and get Sarah soup and take care of her, and the next you’re here with some random chick know of us have met before. I mean its all quite weird and creepy, even for you mate.” Harry didn’t reply, just looked stared at me with his bright green eyes, waiting. He wants me to tell them that he got my best friend pregnant. I say tears forming in his eyes. I walked over and held him tight in my arms. I could hear the other boys shuffle awkwardly in place behind me, but I didn’t really care. Harry needed me. Even if I wanted to punch him for hurting my best friend, he needed me. I was his last connection to her. I knew that he still cared about her, and I had faith that he could turn this situation around.  “You need to tell them” I whispered into his ear. Harry nuzzled his face farther into my neck. I whispered again, “Come on Harry. You need to tell them.” I felt the pressure of his face remove from my neck and I let go of him.

“Sarah’s pregnant, I’m the father.”

The three boys just looked at him in shock. “Wait so she’s pregnant  and you're the father?”

“Yes, Liam that’s what I just said.”

We all stood in silence for a moment before Zayn spoke, “What are you going to do? I mean this is life changing mate... We go on tour in two months and won't be back for another nine.”

“Isn’t it kinda obvious what is decision is Zayn? He left Sarah, alone. He just left her...” Liam trailed off into deep thought, staring into space.

“Why did you leave her?” asked Louis. I nudged Harry in the arm, making him come back to life.  “Well.. ummmm.... I don’t think I can handle it. She needs to know that, so I left. It was the only logical thing I could think of.” After that we couldn’t get him to stop talking. He said he called Lucy, this girl that he met during the X-Factor. He said the got together sometime and just hung-out. He enjoyed her company, but he stopped seeing her after he meet Sarah. He told all of us how he has never felt so much like himself with Sarah, he thought he was falling in love. I cut him off, “And you don’t think you're in love with her anymore because you got her pregnant?” That made no sense to me. Usually if you love someone you want to marry them and HAVE KIDS WITH THEM.

“I know it sounds weird, but I don't know what I want. I mean I want her but.......... I don't because she’s pregnant. I know that makes me a bad person, but......”

“But what Harry?”

“I just can’t do it.” Then he broke down. Louis ran over to his best friend and embraced him in a hug. “Alice I think you and the boys need to leave,let me calm Harry down.” I just nodded knowing that Harry needed time to think. He would come back to her. He had to come back to her. When we got back to the room Lucy and Paul were sitting on the couch in deep conversation. She didn’t notice us walk in until Paul looked up and cleared his throat. “Oh, I didn’t even hear you walk in! Um.. where’s Harry?” asked Lucy. “He’s a little preoccupied at the moment Lucy. He won’t be able to hang out tonight. We will make sure he calls you, but I just think its best you go.” I have never heard Zayn be so straightforward, Louis was the blunt one. Lucy eager  smile changed into something like disappointment as she grabbed her coat and headed toward, “Just tell Harry to call me.”

“Of course I will,” said Zayn,”Goodnight.” Then she was gone. “I should go check to see if Sarah’s okay. Zayn, Liam will you tell Niall to call me, and tell him sorry I couldn’t stay.” Zayn nodded and flopped down on the couch where Paul was sitting. “ Let me take you home.” I nodded and walked toward exit. Once we were in Liams car, he cracked up the heat and headed down the street to me and Sarahs hotel. “Do you want me to come in with you?” Liam asked. “No I think she needs some girl time. I’ll try to help her through tonight. But, you should come in the morning, she would appreciate it.” Right when I was about to get out of the car, Liam pulled me back in.

“How are you not freaking out?”

“I guess I already had my melt down in front of Sarah when she told me. I just know that I need to be there for her I don’t have time to mess around and be sad all the time. She needs someone stable in her life.” Liam nodded and let go of my arm.

“Do you think I could come and bring breakfast in the morning? I want to see how she is doing.”

“Of course. She will really appreciate that.” I closed the car door and was rushing for our room. “You should slow down there love.” I turned around to find William, drunk as hell, stumbling out of the hotel bar.

”Oh Will. This isn’t the best time to talk, i’ve had a long and bad day. I really need to go up stairs and take care of Sarah... shes.. um sick.”

“Oh well fine,” he spat, “But love, your nights about to get a whole lot worse.” I watched him stumble back into the bar, and take a seat next to two men that kept slapping him on the back. What the hell did he mean by ‘your nights about to get a whole lot worse’? Oh what did he know he was drunk. I whipped the thought from my mind when I heard two voices coming from the inside of me and Sarah’s room. I could tell one was Sarah’s right away, but the other was foreign. The longer I listened to it the more familiar it sounded. I opened the door and Sarah just started at me, then to something the corner of our room that I couldn't see yet. Then a face I knew so well came out of the corner. “ALICE! I’ve missed you so much. You look amazing!” He hugged me with a giant embrace. I looked over his shoulder to find Sarahs eyes facing the ground. What in the world was Grant, my ex-boyfriend, doing here.
