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?

56. Promise

Louis's P.O.V.
I got out the promise ring, the one I had bought weeks earlier.
It had a little cup of coffee on of, cheesy I know, but I wanted it to be special.
" Grace this is a promise," I started.
" Oh umm Louis I-"
" Oh no not that kind of promise. It's too soon for that," I winked at her. She knew I was thinking about proposing earlier, but I had doubts I would ever have gone through.
" Anyway, I know it's just as much a possibility that we could be related as the chance of us not being related. I want this ring to symbolize that you won't shut me out of your life. Whether I'm your brother or your boyfriend I always want to be near you, for the rest of my life.
I was you to promise me you will never run away from me, because I know I wouldn't be able to handle myself without you."
She took the little ring out of my fingers and starred at it smiling.
She understood the significance of it...
I waited for her answer," Grace?"
She slipped it on her finger, but then got up and didn't say anything," Grace where are you-"
" Back to Liam's. I should never have come here."
" Why? You live here..."
" Because I'm falling in love with you even more and if we are related it will take that much more of me to stay away from you. I accept your promise, but I still don't think we should see each other until the results on Friday."
I nodded," Fine. Let me know if you need anything or if another storm comes and you need a cuddle buddy."

Grace's P.O.V.
I would never told him that Liam had taken care of me well that night, or that he was a really good snuggler.
I drove back to Liam's right as the storm started. No thunder or lightning yet, just really heavy rain.
I walked as fast as I could to the open front door Liam was holding open.
" How was tutoring?" he asked. He had this big smile on his face and it complimented his light brown eyes.
" Umm... Well..."
I explained everything that happened from the hospital to Louis's song, but I left out the promise ring.
" What's that?" he pointed to my finger.
" Oh I bought it the other day... Do u like it?" I lied.
I took a step closer to him so he could see. He put his head right next to mine a I held the ring out in front of us.
" It's lovely, now how about some dinner. We could go out or-"
He was interrupted by a loud roar of thunder, sending me flying into his arms.
He was laughing," I guess we will be staying in then."
" I'm sorry," I mumbled into his chest. I might've mentioned before Liam is incredibly fit.
" Hey," he kissed the top of my head," It's not a problem. Everyone is afraid of something."
I moved my head, but kept my body where it was, I liked being close to Liam.
" What are you afraid of?" I asked.
He rolled his eyes and then said," Spoons."
I tried so hard not to smile, but he broke me when he said," Go ahead. Laugh. I know it's pretty funny."
I was smiling but not laughing, just looking up into those big brown eyes.
" Your not laughing..."
" I know, it's unusual, but.... Everyone is afraid if something."
We were so close, at the time I didn't even realize.
Our noses were almost touching when he pulled away to go to the kitchen.
I immediately felt ashamed of myself, why would I do something like that with Liam. I didn't like Liam... Did I?

Louis's P.O.V.
I went to bed alone that night, just thinking about her.
What was she doing? Was Liam helping her through the storm?
I looked over at the clock... 12:03.
Not too late... Maybe I give her a ring, or a text message.
