22. Back to Before

Lily's POV

I picked up the phone and dialed Niall's number, hoping that he wasn't busy. I wanted to get over this phone call ASAP. Stacey gave me this are-you-sure face, and I nodded. As much as I didn't want to do this, I had to, or else the fans will hate me, and I didn't want that at all.

"Hello?" Niall answered.

"Hey Niall." I tried to act calm. I didn't want this to go the wrong way.

"Hey Lily, what's up?" he sounded really excited to talk to me. He's always excited to hear my voice or see me over Skype. I knew I would regret this phone call. I already am.

"Umm.. do you have a minute to talk?" I swallowed hard.

"Yeah! What's going on? Is everything okay?"

"Are you like, in a private area or something?" I whispered. I put my feet on the bed and grabbed my knees so that my head was resting on them.

"Well, not really. I can't. I'm on the bus now, so yeah."

"Oh. Okay."

"So, what do you want to tell me?"

I felt the tears coming, but I held them back the best as I could. I know what I was going to say next would break my Nialler's heart. I didn't want to break it. Never would I ever want to break his heart.

"Uh Niall, I don't really think that um- this relatio- that I'm ready to have a bo-" I couldn't continue. I took a few breathes so I wouldn’t start bawling my eyes out.

"Lily?" Niall whispers in the phone.

I cough to hide my crying. "Yeah?"

"What's going on? Are you okay? What happened?"

"Yeah, I fine, Niall. It's just that I'm- it's not you Niall I promise. I love you Niall and you'll always be my bestest friend forever, always. And your amazing and perfect and- but the thing is- is that I don't think we should be like a couple yet, like, I don’t know like-"

"Wait, what?" He sounded shocked. I knew he would.

"Niall, it's not you its just that I don't think I'm not ready to have a boyfriend yet. It's not you Niall, it's just that I don't think I'm ready for a relationship, you know, like, but I still want to be best friends Niall, I really do. You mean a lot to me. I love you Niall its just that… you know. I think we should get together maybe in a few months or something. I don't know." I spit out, knowing that it probably made no sense whatsoever. I look up at Stacey, who was crying, too. By then the tears were silently falling on my cheek. It's been a few minutes, and Niall didn't say a word.

"Niall?" I whisper in the phone, hoping he didn’t hang up on me.

"Yeah?" I could hear him sniffling. I knew that he was crying. I hit the pillow next to me hard a couple of times. Why do I have cancer? Why me? Why can't I just be healthy and Niall comes and visits me in a couple of days like a happy couple? Why?!

"I'm sorry Niall, maybe in a few months or so."

"Okay." I could feel that Niall is trying so hard not to cry.

"But can we still be best friends? Like before? I mean-" I was scared. What if he doesn't want to do anything with me anymore? What if he wants to get rid of me forever and leave me and…

"Best friends Lily. We'll always be best friends, no matter what happens."

I was relieved, but at the same time, hurt. I just hurt my best friend. I'm lying at my best friend. I've never lied to him, never. It's killing me as much as it's killing him. Should I tell him?

"Should I tell him?" I mouthed to Stacey. She thought for a second and nodded. "Tell him." she mouthed back.

"Niall?" I whispered in the phone, hoping he's still there.

"Yeah?"

"Um, I have to tell you something."

"I'm listening, Lils." I smiled a little. He still called me Lils.

"Uh-" I opened my to speak. I quickly changed my mind. "I miss you Niall, like I can't wait to see you again and hang out with you and you know yeah maybe after tour, right?"

"Lily? Are you okay? Are you hiding something from me?" Niall knew me. he knew when something was up.

"Yeah. Everything's fine." I lied.

"You sure? Because you seem a little odd and not yourself."

"I'm positive, Niall." I wiped the tears off my face.

"Uh, I have to go now Lily, miss you."

"Miss you too Niall. And, I'm sorry. I-"

"It's okay Lils, I understand. Bye!"

He hung up. I threw my phone at the floor. I buried my face in the pillow and cried, for what felt like hours. "What did I just do?" I asked Stacey.

"You jus-"

I raised my head and felt the pillow. It was quite damp. I looked at her. "Why did I just do that?"

"I don’t know Lily. I wanted you to tell him Why didn't you tell him?"

I shrugged. "I don't know, Stacey, I don't know. I'm so stupid!"

"No your not!"

"Then why did I just do that!"

"If I were you, I would have probably done the same thing, you know."

"But you should have heard him, Stacey. He sounded hurt. I- I don't know why I just did that. I'm so stupid sometimes."

"It's going to turn out okay, Lily. Trust me."

I tried to believe Stacey, but I couldn’t.

"Hey Stacey." I took a sip of cold water to help cool me down. "Can you text Harry not to tell Niall anything yet? Because I have a feeling he might."

She nodded. "Yeah, I'll text him.

 

Niall's POV

"It's okay Lily, I understand. Bye!" I hung up immediately after and threw my phone on the bed across from mine, which was Liam's bed. I lied down on my bed, and raised my hands so that they covered my face. I tried so hard not to cry, so hard, but I could feel the tears fall down my face. What just happened? Why didn't she want to be my girlfriend? Is she hiding something from me? I heard someone walking closer so I turned over and looked at the wall.

"Hey Niall, you okay mate?" It was Liam. I didn't answer him. I grabbed my pillow and smashed it to my face. I didn’t want to see anyone right now. I didn't want to talk to anyone right now. But at least she still wants to be my best friend, but I mean, yeah.

"Hey Niall, you okay? What happened?"

"Nothing, just leave me alone, okay?" I mumbled in my pillow. I didn't dare to look up. My face and eyes were probably red. And plus I wasn't in the mood to explain anything.

I heard some noises and walking.

"He doesn't want to talk to anybody. That's what he told me."

"What happened?" I could tell it was Harry asking.

"I don't know. Come on, let's let him be."

"Niall?" So apparently Harry doesn't listen to Liam.

"Liam told you to leave me alone."

"You okay?"

"Yeah." I mumbled.

I heard footsteps and I felt I was alone. I looked up slowly; I was right. I turned myself around so that I faced the bottom of Harry's bunk, which was on top of mine. There's a picture of me and Lily, from when we were about twelve years old. We were at the beach, and I was holding a small crab. She was freaking out. "Niall! He's going to bite you! Niall!" was all she could say. Her face was priceless. I smiled thinking about the memory. I heard my phone vibrate. I got up and grabbed it off of Liam's bed. It was a text, from Lily.

"Look what I found. Thought you should know you look quite a gentleman. ;)" She had texted me a picture, of when we were toddlers. We were dressed up for some occasion, and I, being the messy one, had cake all over me. Lily was sitting next to me laughing. I laughed and texted her back. "hahahahahaha this is crazy! Where did you find it?"

It only took her a few seconds to reply. "Oh, I've always had it… just hid it from you, well cuz… I felt like it. :) "

I smiled. At least we were still best friends. Absolutely nothing could change that.

Harry's POV

I walked into the bunk area of the bus, but Liam stopped me. "He doesn't want to talk to anybody. That's what he told me."

"What happened?"

"I don't know. Come on, let's let him be."

I motioned for Liam to go, and that I'll be there in a second.

"Niall?" I walked and sat on the edge of Liam's bed.

"Liam told you to leave me alone." Niall sounded annoyed and sad. He sounded like he'd been crying.

"You okay?"

"Yeah." I could barely here him. Wait, didn't Liam tell Niall that Lily was calling him? I walk back to the couch and grab my phone from the table. I decide to text Stacey, to see if Lily has to do anything with him.

"Hey, do you know what happened to Niall? He's not in the happiest mood right now.."

A few minutes later, she texted back. "Well, it's a long story. I'll explain later."

"Yeah, okay. I'll call you maybe tomorrow."

"Lily wants to know if Niall is alright."

I walked up and peaked to see if Niall had moved. He was sitting on his bed holding the picture of him and Lily and looking at his phone. He was laughing a little.

"Yeah, I think he's good."
