The Boy Down The Street

Elani Chade (pronounced Elahni) is an extremely shy, timid girl, who is struggling through bulling at school. Her only true friend, Louis Tomlinson, is loud, popular and a jokester. They are complete opposites, but are inseparable. What happens when they start falling in love? Will it work out well, or will it break their friendship?


25. Home


It was the last day that they would spend their time in Paris, and it also happened to be the last day Ellie's parents were on holiday, which meant as soon as they got home they could pick her up, which was incredibly special as they had decided to skip work on that day. She was extremely excited to see them, whereas on the other hand she wanted to stay with Louis. 

It was a gloomy class that boarded the buses to drive them back to the airport, the luggages stored in the overhead compartment, their day packs bulging under their feet. Sadly Ellie's carrots had not been given permission to be taken them back to the UK, so she had offered them to Louis, who ate them, promising he would get her something else when they got back home.

It seemed like only yesterday they had arrived at the airport.

As they boarded the plane, Ellie plopped onto the seat, remembering how nervous she had been when they had first lifted off. As if echoing her thoughts Louis came and sat next to her, eyeing her up and down.

'You ok?'


In front of them a quarrel was breaking out, who was going to sit with who. Harry wanted to sit next to his  new girlfriend, Charlie McKenna,  while Niall wanted to sit next to Harry as well. Liam had bagsed sitting next to Lou, which meant Zayn had to sit somewhere else.

Ellie noticed Harry intertwine his fingers together with Charlie, sending her pleading looks as she tried to convince him that she was fine sitting somewhere else. As Harry leant forward to kiss her, the boys covered their eyes yelling, 'Ewww!'

Elie stood up as the couple broke apart, then stared fondly at Zayn who had sneakily tried to climb over the chair to Charlie's spot. He shrugged innocently. 'What?'

'I'll sit somewhere else!' she cried, squishing past Louis and Liam. 'Then it'll work! Harry with Charlie and Niall, Louis, Liam and Zayn.'

'W-what?' Louis stuttered. 'No! Don't leave me!'

Ellie rolled her eyes. 'I live across the street from you. It's quite hard to not see each other.'

'Aww but-'

She felt touched, but pointed to the seat across. 'I'll sit here, ok? It's not that far.' The boys stared at her, and she stared back with a raised eyebrow. 'Well?'

She turned around abruptly and sat down, not bothering to collect her things from the overhead compartment. There was enough room for Zayn to put his stuff.

Next to her a boy smiled. 'Salut!'

'Salut,' she replied nodding her head.

'Comment t'appelle tu?'

'Ja m'apelle Elani,' she replied, trusting her hand out to shake before they could do that kiss cheek thingy. He took it and smiled again.


Not knowing how to reply she just smiled back and made sure her phone was on airplane mode.



'Ja ma'pelle Elani,' he heard her say, and he grimaced, buckling in his seatbelt. Why couldn't he sit next to her? he felt Liam's eyes on him and shrugged.

'You two dating yet?' he whispered, a smirk appearing on his face. Louis couldn't remember Liam being so cheeky.


'Why not? Still shy?'

'Shy? Pfff.' Louis turned away, looking at the other planes through the small window. 'I- I want to give her time.'

'Fair enough,' Liam nodded, stopping the conversation and talking to Zayn instead. Louis sighed. It would be one heck of a plane ride.




As soon as Louis phone gained internet connection, it started buzzing wildly. He unlocked his phone, eyes going wide as he read through the messages.

I will kill Elani.

I will kill u

I'll kill all ur friends

I'll kill everyone you know

I'll spill your fucking 'best friends' blood all over your house and let her die in front of you.

And so the messages went on. It seemed like Bianca had come up with thousands of comebacks and threats while they were away. She was infuriated by his choice over her, and angrier that everyone now thought she was a player. (which she was) Her boyfriend she had started dating after her attempts to persuade Louis had broken up with her in disgust when he found out how she was using people. And she wanted revenge. She made that quite clear. 

He took a breath and looked behind him, glad that Ellie was still struggling with her luggage. If she had seen the messages, she would have freaked. He knew what he had to do.

Go to Bianca first, before Ellie did.




Home sweet home. She hadn't stepped foot in her own room for over a month. Sighing she dumped her bags on the floor and fell asleep on the bed, too tiered to do anything.


She woke up as the door pounded, the door bell ringing over and over again. She rushed out of bed, pulling open the door just as the person was about to knock again. It was Liam, and he looked very distraught. 

'What's wrong?' she gasped as his eyes threatened to water. Liam never cried. He was always the one who comforted.

'Louis,' he managed, before he started sobbing.

Her heart thumped against her chest, eyes wide. 'What happened? Liam, tell me what happened!'

Speechlessly he handed her the phone.  She read the texts, her face turning white.

it was like her heart was being ripped out. 'Knowing Louis he'd- oh God, no. He went looking for Bianca didn't she.'

He nodded, 'the police are searching for them, Harry, Zayn and Niall told me to get you, and to not panic. He'll be alright.'

'What are they doing?'

'They went with the police.'

Ellie got her phone out of her pocket. Her text was different, but from the same person.

meet me in the school courtyard, bitch.

She tossed her phone aside, pulling her joggers on.


'Liam I'm going after them.'

'No, can't you see? It's you who Bianca wants.'

'I don't care. Louis can't get hurt.'

'What are you going to do?' Liam asked helplessly.

'Bianca sent me a text saying they're in the school courtyard. I'm going there.'

'Can't you wait for the police first?'

'It'll be too late!' she cried desperately, hurriedly tying her shoelaces. 'We don't know what's happened already! I'm going to run there.'


'Liam, running's the only thing I know how to do, and I gotta do something.'

With that she sprinted down the path, armed with only her clenched fists.
