Losing Myself For You

Grace is a 19 year old girl just trying to pay the bills of her new apartment in Doncaster, England. She decides to go into the tutoring program for younger kids at the local high school, but when she meets Lottie's older brother one day will it strike up some romance? Or maybe conflict? And will she still be able to focus on her job and career with the new distractions?

42. A New/Good Friend

Lottie's P.O.V.
" So how's football?" I asked David.
He was stuffing pancakes in his mouth, while I was barely eating mine. I wasn't that hungry.
" Good," he paused swallowing the food in his mouth," I'm captin again. Our first game is next week."
" I guess I'll be able to come then."
" Good. I'll need all the support and reason to do good possible."
" What do you mean? Youll do amazing!"
" I always mes sup when your there because I want to impress you."
I laughed," At least you admit that! Guys usually don't, and it's extremely cute."
" Really?"
I nodded, taking another bite of my breakfast.
" So what else do you want to do today?"
" Well we could go visit Grace and Lou. Haven't seen them in a while."
He didn't look too ok with that idea.. " What?" I asked.
" Grace doesn't like me I can tell..."
" Of course she likes you! She just got really protective before. I think it's because she's had some rough break ups and doesn't want me to go through that."
" You're both incredibly close... Almost like sisters."
" Haha yeah. She's great, I wouldn't have an A in English if it wasn't for her."
" By the way, can we go to the library at some point? I need help with Geometry again."
I laughed, leaned over and kissed his cheek," Yeah sure, anything for you babe."




Grace's P.O.V.
I immediately got out of the car, once we got home, went upstairs and packed up the stuff in Louis's room that was mine.
I was sobbing now. This couldn't be! I loved Louis, but not like a brother, he couldn't be my brother.
" Hey Grace whats up-" Harry started, but I pushed passed him into the guest bedroom. I had all of my original stuff in there, but I brought the rest of it over.
I locked the door, and laid down on the silky black bedspread and cried my eyes out.
----------
It had been two hours and I still couldn't stop. I was so tired and I bet my eyes were raw from all the wiping away of tears.
Someone knocked on the door.
" Not right now," I said coldly. I wasn't ready to fight with Louis again. To fight for what was right but felt so wrong.
" It's Liam, please open up," I opened it.
He gave me a giant bear hug, even though I barely knew him and I closed the door, locked it, and looked back at him.
" Louis invites us over because he was so upset. I'd imagine you are too, the only difference is noone is comforting you."
" I just stood there, continuing to cry."
" No Grace come on sit down. Do you want to talk?"
I shook my head no, but fell into his lap, turning my head into his chest to continue to cry.
He just ticked me back and forth, rubbing my back like a little kid.
" You will get through this Grace. And I'm always here for you, as well as the rest of the lads. Here give me your phone, I'll put our contacts in and you can call or text us day or night."
I handed him my phone, but didn't leave his chest.
In between sobs I said," Thank you Liam."
He just shushed me and laid me down. I closed my eyes and fell asleep, feeling his strong, protective arms around me.



Louis's P.O.V.
I wasn't sleeping, I wasn't eating, I was just looking at pictures of us anywhere I could get them; my laptop, my phone, twitter, anywhere.
I was grasping for any bit of her I could keep and call mine.
I was crying hard over a particular picture on my phone of us when a gigantic bolt of thunder came.
One word came into my head: Grace.
I knew Liam had gone to comfort her but now no one was there.
I sprinted down the hall to her door and realized it was locked.
I started knockin on it like a mad man," Grace open up its me, your ok just walk to the door and-"
She opened the door and I could see how terrible she looked.
I looked bad, she looked 3 times worse.
" What?" she aske coldly.
" I wanted to make sure you.... The storm...."
" It's only at night. Is that all? I'd prefer not to talk to you right now."
" I'm.... I'm sorry."
" apologies will get us no where in this situation. Goodnight Louis."
" Good night Grace. I love-" I cut myself off. I couldn't say it.
Her head snapped around," What did you say.
I took a deep breath and said," I said I love you."
" Oh.."
She was looking at the floor, avoiding my glance. I begged her mentally to return the words but she didn't.
She shut the door and I walked down to Harry's room. I needed to vent.



Liam's P.O.V.
I left Grace sleeping a couple hours ago, and went back to Niall's flat for a while.
I got a text from Grace: " Grace: He just came to my door and told me he loved me. I know it's wrong to be with him, but I love him. Why cant I be as disgusted to the idea of being in love with my brother as everyone else instead of wanting him."
I almost cried reading the text. Grace was such a lovely girl, why would anything this bad happen to her?
" Just stay calm. Breathe, you will get through this. If you want you can sleep at my place tonight. I know Louis told me you don't like storms ;)"
I cursed myself for using the winks face. I didn't want her to think I liked her, even if I did... A little.
I got a reply 5 minutes later," Grace: actually that's be great if it's not a hassle, what time?"
" I'm at Niall's now, so in an hour? I will come pick you up."
" Ok :) see you then Liam."
It was wrong I know to interfer with this whole situation, but I felt so bad, especially for Grace, and I was going to do whatever I could to make this easier on her, and on Louis.
