29. Saying Goodbye


Phoenix's POV

"Leslie, why do you keep making these fake things? I mean, fake tickets, fake passes, and fake ID's? If we weren't friends, I would turn you in!"

"I know, Harry just gave me this speech. I hate that I have to say goodbye, but I can't stand looking into his beautiful eyes and not just jumping on him, and I wouldn't be able to lie if I ever saw him kiss anther girl."

"Wait, you're leaving? But we need you!"

"I'm sorry, but I have to!" Then she rolled over and went to sleep.


"I hate to say goodbye to all of you, but I must." She walked around and gave us all a hug. All the girls were crying, except Dessa, who looked oddly excited. When she got to Harry, they kissed one last time, and he walked her out to my mom's car. I went out too, with Lou. Soon everyone started to follow. Leslie put her bags in the trunk and got in the car. Everyone walked back in, except for me and Lou, and my mom got out of the car.

"Mom! I missed you so much!" I gave her a big hug and she kissed me on the cheek. Then she looked over to Louis and frowned.

"Who's this?" she said in disgust, "He doesn't look anything like Andrew." Now I was nervous, and Louis looked like he was going to throw up.

"Mom, Andrew and I broke up a month ago. Don't you remember the story I told you? I cheated on him, he was mad, he kidnapped me, all that?"

"Oh, yes. So this is?"

"Oh, right. Hi, Mrs. Bratcher, I'm Louis, Phoenix's boyfriend." He squeezed my hand, and my mom looked angry. Then she smiled.

"Well, you don't have to call me that! Call me Shannon. Nice to finally meet you, Louis."

"Finally?" Louis looked confused. I told him this was the first my mom had heard about him.

"Yes, Phoenix talks about you all the time!" She gave him a hug, and Louis gave me a look. I smiled, and he sighed. We talked for awhile, then I forgot about Leslie. She was crying, and I felt so bad. She had been listening to our conversation about all of the couples, and we just go to her and Harry.

"Well, mom. Leslie has been waiting for awhile. So glad to see you!" I gave her a hug, and she gave Louis one. Leslie quickly wiped off her tears, and they left.

We got back inside, and it felt so empty. Without a 12th person, it flt less chaotic. I decided to break the silence.

"Anyone wanna watch a movie?" We all nodded, and we put The Notebook in. Harry left, obviously not ready to be reminded of couples. I felt I made the wrong choice of movie, so I went to apologize.

"Harry, I'm so sorry about you and Leslie."

"It's alright. You can go watch the movie, don't let me stop you."

"No, I just wanted an excuse to go talk to you, so I put a random movie on. I didn't mean to put something romantic like that."

"It's alright. What did you wanna talk about?"

"Um, I don't know. Who is this Dessa girl anyways?"

"Well, when we were kids, we were best friends. She came over every day, and we would go to the park. When I left for X-Factor, I lost touch with her, so I haven't talked to her in awhile."

"Oh." I started drumming my fingers on the bed rail. "Any funny stories?"

"Well, this one isn't funny, but once we were at the park and this kid hit her, so I punched him in the face."

"Ouch! So, you took up for her?"

"Yeah, I kinda....loved......her."


"I got grounded for 2 weeks because of that. I don't think she knows I loved her."

"Do you still loe her?"

"I don't know." Harry ran his fingers through his hair, elbows on his knees and hands on his head. "I guess."

"You can't guess love. Do you want me to talk to her?"

"No. I want some time to get over Leslie. Besides, I'm not in love with her, I don't think. I love someone else."

"Sounds like you have relationship problems. You just broke up with the girl you loved, met your past love, and you're in love with Suzy."

"How'd you know it was Suzy?"

"It's obvious. The way you stare at her, the way you talk to her, you always sit by her at meals. I don't think anyone doesn't know, besides Suzy."

"Even Leslie?"

"Why do you think she cheated?"

"She said she was drunk!"

"Yeah, she got drunk because she knew that you loved her, and she was depressed." He buried his face in his hands. I saw a tear run down onto his pants.

"It's my fault she cheated." He laid back on the bed.

"No, it's no one's fault but hers." He didn't seem convinced. Louis just walked in, and looked kind of mad.

"Lou, what happened?"

"Don't ask me, ask him." Louis grabbed the arm of some stranger, bu Harry looked like he knew him.

"And this is?" I asked, but they ignored me. Instead, Harry got up and punched him in the face.

"Harry!" They still ignored me, and Harry kept punching him and kicking him. I ran over to him and held him back. He just collapsed, crying. Louis yanked him away, and threw him out the door.
