37. Dragging Me Back

"You're pathetic," I whispered, looking into my eyes through the mirror. Tears had already ruined my makeup and began to stream some of it under my eyes and down my cheeks. I used the back of my hand to wipe off the red lipstick on my lips, letting out another sob as I rested my hands on the vanity, leaning against it, letting my head fall in defeat. Not too long after one more sob, I heard the door open and didn't bother to look up. Two arms wrapped around me tightly and I fell into her arms like a doll.

"It's okay, Briana. It'll be okay," Jade whispered to me, stroking my back as I wrapped my arms around her. Her arms held me like a child. I felt like a child. Crying like this. But she didn't say a word more. She just let me cry into her arms, not judging me, not asking me questions I didn't want to answer. She was there for me and I loved her for that.

"Now what happened to all of that makeup I put on?" Lou pouted about fifteen minutes later as I sat in the chair in my dressing room. Jade was leaned against the vanity, slightly sitting on it and looking at me. Lou didn't give me enough time to even open my mouth as she began speaking, fixing my makeup as she told me I did amazing and then continued to talk about random things, obviously trying to take my mind off of what I had been crying about when she came in.

"Thank you," I told Jade as we walked side by side down the hallway. She turned to look at me with a look of shock.

"You have nothing to thank me for, Briana. I'm here for you, got it?" Jade reassured, punching my shoulder lightly and I laughed. Hearing this made me almost miss Missy. Jade and I hugged briefly and we both checked in a mirror quickly to make sure we looked fine. I was surprised Lou was even able to make me look alright but she had fixed my makeup so it looked perfect like it had before.

"Here we go," Jade breathed as she pushed open the door. We stepped out and were met by screams and questions. Paparazzi were shouting at us for smiles and answers. Fans were screaming our names and I was left alone to sign autographs as Jade went to go stand with her three group members. I smiled at a few cameras, answering a few questions as I signed autographs with the same signature I had practiced in third grade when I was convinced I was going to be famous.

“Briana! Briana! Right here!" People were calling left and right. I looked up and I saw the face of Niall Horan staring at me! It scared me to death until I realized it was just on a girls t-shirt. I finally was signing an autograph, talking to a girl named Briar when a reporter asked me a question that struck my attention.

"Briana, is it true you sang that song about your ex-boyfriend?" He questioned. A reporter with a question. It was just a question, I told myself. Nothing to get worked up about. I forced a smile onto my lips as I handed the girl her marker back with a smile and a quick thank you.

"Briana, come along, love," A security guard called as he wrapped an arm around me, leading me towards the car. I slid into the vehicle, letting a breath out of my throat as I smiled warmly at Janet who I complimented on her performance. I felt my phone vibrate in my pocket and slid it out, opening the text message without any knowledge of who it might be but I was shocked to the max when I saw who it was.

great performance Bri. you killed it out there. don't know exactly if you sang about what I thought but I just wanted to let you know I miss you. We need to talk. You can’t stay mad at me forever.

Nialler Horan <3. I hadn't even changed his name in my phone. Reading the text message was like taking a knife to the chest. But when I received another text message. It was more like falling down the stairs onto a knife then proceeding to get hit by a bus.

and I still love you no matter what.

Of course. Of course he would send it. Why wouldn't he? While I was fighting for my dreams, he was just pulling me back to the reality of what I gave up when I left home. And with what? A simple text message telling me he missed me and loved me. I was so mad at him, but was it his fault? I mean me getting dragged back to him. Or is it mine for never fully getting over him?

"Hey Bri, you alright?" Misha interrupted my thoughts. My head snapped up and I saw all eyes glued to me. I managed to put a smile on my face as I laughed, "Yeah, of course!" I reassured as I closed the text, putting my phone back in my pocket as the conversation around me began to take swing again. I wasn't ready to talk to Niall. Honestly, I don't know if I ever was going to be.
