71. My Dad Once Told Me

Niall's POV

"Where's Harry?" Liam asked impatiently, worry evident in his eyes.

"I'm here! I'm here!" Harry cheered as he ran towards us. He reached us, letting out a deep breath and slumping his tired body from the run back to us. Zayn patted his back.

"Where have you been, Harry? We have to go on!" Liam scolded. Daddy Direction at his finest.

"I ran into Briana, if you must know," Harry replied and that's what caught my attention. My body did a sudden 360 to face him and my eyes were as wide as saucers. Instantly I wished I had gone with Harry to get water. He had asked me to go but I declined. Why had I been so stupid?

I needed to see Briana tonight. I had to. I had to talk to her about everything. I made up my mind. I needed to win her back. It wasn't going to be that easy to get rid of me. If I couldn't change her mond tonight then I would give up and leave her alone. Pretend she never existed and move on with my life.

"Calm down, Niall. You can see her after we perform," Liam said.

"Doubt it," Harry muttered, shaking his head.

"Dude.." Zayn trailed off, taking a glance at my expression as my heart shot out of my chest.

"I don't mean it like that.. She was just extremely quick to end the conversation. It was like she couldn't wait to get away from me and I'm almost 98% sure she won't want to talk to you," He told me. My heart hurt the whole time we performed Gotta Be You. The screams of the fans didn't overwhelm me like usual. I couldn't get my mind off of Briana and everything that unfolded the other night. I couldn't stand the thought of losing her forever or not being able to talk to her tonight. I had everything I was going to say planned out.

"Let's go find her, mate," Zayn said as we finished performing. All 5 of us dropped our microphones off, thanking some producers before running off to find Bri. We were walking down the dressing room hall and it was like slow motion when one heel stepped out in front of the other and out she walked.

Briana Hill. Looking as stunning as ever. Her hair was darker now and perfect curls waterfalled down her back. She sported a pair of black shorts with a yellow tanktop tucked into it and a black leather coat along with black high heels that made her killer legs look ten times better. She had a smile on her lips, laughing at something whoever she was with said. As she stepped out, I recognized Patrick Collins step out behind her, chuckling and still telling her the joke. I don't get it. After everything she said to me I still loved her and wanted her. Love is the strangest thing.

"Briana," Louis called gently. His voice and the sound of her name caught her attention and slow motion x2 as she turned around, hair flipping. Her gorgeous green eyes flew between the 5 of us, her smile fading instantly when she realized it was us, "Hi Briana."

"I have to go," She said quickly, ducking her head and grabbing Patrick's hand. He didn't budge, pulling her back and going to whisper in her ear. I didn't hear a word either of them said but by the looks of it, he was trying to convince her to talk to us because she didn't look happy and he looked determined and ready to fight. She frowned at him before sighing in frustation. He kissed her cheek, squeezing her hand.

"Find me when you're done, okay?" He ordered. She nodded, their hands slowly letting go of each other as he began to walk off. He passed us, sending us each a reassuring smile, his eyes glued to me and I saw them narrow ever so slightly. He walked off, disappearing, leaving Briana all alone.

"Hello," She said dully.

"Hey Bri. How've you been?"Zayn greeted hesitantly.

"I've been fine," She spoke short. She didn't want conversation. She avoided our gaze. She was looking everywhere but at us. Her arms were crossed and she was frowning. She raised her hand to gaze at her fingernails and then re-crossed her arms, cocking her hip to the side, looking at the ground unhappily.

"I think it's time we talk, Briana," Liam finally spoke up.

"Funny you say that," She scoffed, shaking her head and still not lifting her head up to look at him or any of us. I could feel my heart sit heavy in my chest and it wasn't getting any lighter. My thoughts were gnawing at my brain and I just wanted to scream and tell her how much I still loved her, "Look, just say what you want to say and let me go."

"This isn't a one-sided talk," Liam corrected.

"What do I have to apologize for?" Briana laughed, finally picking her head up to look at him. Her eyes narrowed dangerously and she shook her head, "Sorry I wasn't able to keep my boyfriend entertained? Sorry I'm trying to live out my dreams and I can't talk to you guys 24/7? Sorry I read the notes you left me and am pissed? Sorry that I'm such a bitch? Leave it alone, LIam. Things have changed and so have I."

"Briana, what notes are you talking about?" I finally spoke up and her eyes darted to me and all I could see was pain, anger, and her broken heart. She blinked and shook her head. "The ones you left at the restaurant, the ones from you and MIssy, the ones that were just bashing me?"

I can't believe it, thats where I ended up putting the letters. Wow I'm an idiot. "Bri, that was just us venting, we were going to shred them so no one ever foud them and that our anger could come out. It was Liam's idea because he didn;t want us taking drastic measures." "Really?" Bri said with a look of unsure reliefe. "I don't know. If that stuf was true, it was really harsh. Why couldn't you two just be honest with me. It would have soved all of this a long time ago." "We tried but you would never listen." With that, Bri looked away.

"Don't feed me lies, Niall. Stop trying to win me over. You cheated on me one way or another. If you did it once, you'll do it again. You broke my heart in the worst way possible after you promised you wouldn't hurt me. I was so afraid to get into a relationship with you specifically because I didn't want to get hurt again."

She looked so lost and broken. I wanted to wrap my arms around her. I wanted to go back in the past and fix things. I wanted to fix her. I wanted her to love me even after everything has happened. I wanted things to be okay. But it didn't seem like things would be okay. But I remember when I was younger, my dad once told me..

"When you love a girl, you'll do anything for her. Never give up, son. Fight for her."

And that's what I would do. I would fight for Briana until things were okay. No matter what it would take, I would fight for her.

"I'm not letting you go, Briana. I still love you and I'll do whatever it takes to fix things," I confessed.

"You have to move on, Niall," She whispered, shaking her head as her eyes turned to the ground, "Fixing me is impossible. I'm too broken... and you're the one who broke me."

With that, she walked passed us, tears in her eyes. The only sound made was the sound of her heels clicking to the ground with every step she took until the echo disappeared and it was silent.

"Fight for her," Was all I heard. I felt four pairs of eyes on me. My boys. My best mates. They were in this with me. They would help me no matter what. They knew I loved her. They knew I needed her.

"I plan on it," I reassured.
