12. Heartache

For the next month, we finish the music video for Moments and it's released. I have to say, it's really good. It climbs the chart and is the number one music video for at least a week. I do a lot more modeling and become more known and famous. Me and the lads hang out but I mostly spend my time with Niall or Louis. Louis has become like a brother to me. We always pick on each other but we love each other. But Niall..... I think I might be falling for him. Which is bad! Because I'm still dating Carter and our relationship has been so smooth. 

One afternoon I'm sitting reading a book on the couch when Niall texts me. He says: Wanna hang out tonight? Watch a film maybe? I smile and send back: Would love to. I'll bring the popcorn. He replies: Yum! Popcorn. K see you soon. I rummage through the cabinets and find some popcorn then head over to Niall's flat which, is his own. The lads all got separate flats except for Harry and Louis who share one. 

"So what movie are we watching?" I ask, settling on the couch with a bowl of popcorn. He sits next to me. "How about a Harry Potter marathon?" "Oo yeah!" he puts in the DVD then turns out the lights. He brings over a blanket and we share it. 

Somewhere between the third and fourth movie, I fall asleep. "Hey Scar. You should wake up now. My arm is numb" I hear Niall say. I open my eyes and realize I'm laying on Niall so I sit up. "Sorry" I mumble. He chuckles "No problem" I look at the time. Eleven. "Ugh I need to get back so Carter doesn't have a heart attack" I say standing up. "Bye Nialler" I say. "See ya Scar" 

I head back to the flat and see Carter pacing. He only paces when he's nervous. "Carter what's wrong?" I ask. "You're home. Sit down" he says gesturing to the kitchen table. I sit and he sits across from me. "Sorry I didn't come home, I fell asleep at.." I say and he interrupts me. "Niall's I know. Listen Scar.. Lately, you've been spending more time there, then here" "I know and I'm sorry but..." "Can you just wait until I'm finished? I need to say this" I nod. "Okay. Lately you've been spending a lot of time with those lads. And when you spend time with Louis, I don't care because I see how you two interact and you act like family. But Niall, he's different. You guys don't flirt or anything but the way that you look at each other, the way you smile when you get a text from him or your face lights up when he walks through the door. It's obvious that you have feelings for him, but you won't admit it. Not even to yourself. I mean, you've never looked at me the way you look at him. But I love you so much Scar. So that's why, I've decided it'd be best if we see other people because I would rather you be happy with someone else then unhappy with me" Tears fill my eyes. "So you're breaking up with me?" I ask. He nods. "But I love you!" I say. "I know and I love you too, so much it hurts. But look me in the eye and tell me you have no feelings for Niall" I look at the ground. "I can't" I whisper. "Exactly. Scar this hurts me a lot too" he says seeing the tears start to fall. I look up and see he's on the verge of crying as well. "So what happens to us? Are we just going to stop talking and just forget about each other like a lot of couples do when they break up?" "All I know, is that I could never forget you Scar" I stand up. "This is goodbye then.. I guess" I say. He nods. "If you want to stay here another night that's perfectly fine..." "No, I'll stay with Louis and Harry" I say. "I know I've told you this, but I do love you. You'd just be happier without me" he says. I bite my cheek and nod. "Goodbye hug?" he asks. I hug him and treasure the last moment in his arms. "Bye Carter" I whisper as I pull away. "Goodbye Scar" he says. I grab a suitcase and pack the essentials ill need in it. I can have the lads come and get the rest of my stuff. 

"Hey Scar!" Louis says as he opens his door. Then he notices I'm crying. I drop my suitcase and he hugs me. "Shhhhh, don't cry" he whispers in my ear. He picks me up and then picks up my luggage then brings me inside. "Who's at the door?" Harry asks, emerging from his room. He sees Lou holding me on the couch. "Scar! What happened?" Harry asks coming over to sit by me and Lou. I take a deep breath and say "Carter... He..." "He broke up with you" Lou finishes for me. I nod. "That son of a bitch is going to pay for making you cry!" Harry says jumping up. "No Harry! He didn't break up with me because he wanted to. He broke up with me because.." "Because why" Lou asks. "If I tell you, you can't tell anyone especially Niall" They both nod. "Because he sees that there is something going on between Niall and I. He notices the little things like how we look at each other. I hadn't even considered the fact that I might fancy Niall until he said that" Harry sits back down and Lou strokes my hair. The tears are slowly coming to a stop. "So do you fancy Niall?" Harry asks. "I.... I think so. I mean, I feel so different when I'm with Niall. When I'm with Carter, I just felt like I was hanging out with an old friend and nothing more. I had kind of lost that feeling of excitement and joy when he was around. But with Niall... I just can't even explain how I feel" I say. "Well, try" Lou says. I take a deep breath. "Are you sure? Cause this is girl talk" I say. "I think we can manage" Lou says. "Alright well, when I'm with Niall, my heart drops into my stomach and it starts beating louder than a drum. My head races and I feel like he's the only one there. And when I'm around him, I know I can just be me and I feel like... This is really cheesy... But I feel like he completes me" I say. "And so here's the question. Actually theres two questions. One, why didn't you tell Carter how you felt and two, are you going to tell Niall how you feel?" Harry asks. "I didn't know that I fancied Niall. I pushed my feelings for him down and ignored them because I wanted everything to stay the same and I was afraid of change. I realize that now. And I may tell Niall. But I can't get into a relationship with him for a while. I mean Carter just broke up with me and even though I'm starting to fancy Niall, I really did love Carter and those feelings aren't just going to disappear over night" Lou and Harry look at each other. "What?" I ask. "Well, Niall's going to kill me for telling you this but, he fancies you. I think he has since the day he met you" Harry says. "Really?" They both nod. "Looking back on it, it is kind of obvious" I say."Only kind of? Try really obvious" Louis says. "Let's just sort this out later" I say. They agree. I sit there, in Louis' arms for a moment and then say "Will you lads sing to me?" I ask. "Sure" Harry says. "Why not" Louis says. They decide on a song and won't tell me. Then, they start singing. "You're insecure, don't know what for. You're turning heads when you walk through the the do-ah-or" Harry sings. Louis sings the next part and they continue alternating until I'm sung to sleep
