'I was so stupid for letting you go but I know your still the one, you might have moved on but girl you should know that I know your still the one,' - One Direction, Still The One.

Everyone put your shit down and go listen to Still The One! It literally sums up this whole story in one song, it's so creepy. It's like One Direction were stalking me...

Thanks again guys for all the votes you've given the last chapter! I promise the story get's better cause right now it's quite depressing haha.

And don't forget that just because characters from the first book have moved or live in different countries doesn't mean they won't make another entry! ;)

Ok here's the chapter!


Chapter 3:

Starbucks and Karmen's House?


I hate him. I hate him. I hate him.

Louis Tomlinson has the ability to make my blood boil. How at one point of my life did I think I loved him?

My breathing was heavy as I practically stormed down the street, ignoring the screams from fans as I did so. My hair was soaking so I grabbed a bobbin from my bag and quickly threw it in a messy bun, probably looking horrible.

I decided on going to Starbucks as it was absolutely freezing and I needed something to calm me down. I reached the warm shop within minutes, quickly opening the door and inhaling the enticing smell of fresh coffee.

"Could I have a gingerbread latte please?" I requested from the blonde haired girl around my age behind the counter.

"Of course, what's your name?" She replied cheerily as I began to take some money from my purse. I was beginning to run out of money and I knew it. Sooner or later, I was going to have to get a job.

"Rosie." I smiled and she told me the price. I handed her the exact change and then walked over to the other counter to wait for my coffee.

I felt my phone begin to vibrate and I already had a good idea of who it was. Karmen's name lit up on the screen and I pressed answer, holding the speaker as far away from my ear as I could, knowing she would deafen me.

"What the actual fuck is wrong with you Rosie? Do you realise you just drenched an international pop star and then stormed out of the radio station, not even bothering to apologise?"

"Look Karmen, you really don't understand," I hesitated as I didn't want to tell her everything. Enough people already knew and even though Karmen was my best friend I didn't want her pitying me. "Things didn't end well for Louis and I. Things were meant to turn out differently and they just...didn't." I heard my name called and quickly grabbed my drink before going to take an empty seat by the window.

"Well it must have ended pretty badly for - you didn't date did you?" I heard Karmen put on her cheeky voice and rolled my eyes as I took a sip from my hot latte.

"No!" I shouted too loudly, causing everyone in the shop to stop what they were doing to turn an look at me. "Sorry!" I mouthed to the customers and they went back to their own lives.

"No need to be so defensive! It was just a question. Besides, your lucky you didn't cost Zach his job today. Mark called afterwards saying he certainly wasn't happy with how we behaved on air." I felt a shiver run down my back and sneezed. Great a cold is all I need now.

"I didn't mean to cause trouble," Lies! "Louis just has this way of brining my mischeievious side out in me. I haven't acted that stupid in years."

"Well I wish I could see this trouble-maker Rosie more often. She seems fun! Anyway I have to go. I finish up here at six so how about you come over to mine and we an have a movie night?" That's probably the best thing for me at the moment. I don't think I could stand seeing Zach.

"Sounds great. I'll bring Chinese food and you get the movies!" I suddenly erupted into a fit of sneezes after hanging up with Karmen so I decided to head home. I called in sick to college and went straight to my flat.

When I finally reached the entrance to my apartment building, I literally felt like I was going to die. My nose was bright red and I could feel my throat swelling up. I couldn't wait to just climb into my bed and block myself out from the world.

Of course nobody ever lets me do what I want.

In the distance, standing next to the main door was an oh too familiar blonde haired boy waiting for me. I groaned, knowing I certainly wasn't getting into bed anytime soon and slumped up to meet him.

"What do you want Niall?" I asked him rudely as I typed the code into the door, gaining me access to the building. I snuggled my scarf further around my neck for warmth and waited for Niall to answer.

"What? A guy can't come see a friend for a catch up without his motives being questioned?" Niall scoffed dramatically as he followed me into the slightly warmer hallway although I was still freezing. I let out yet another extremely loud sneeze and wiped my nose in my sleeve. "Attractive." Niall commented and I gave him possibly one of the scariest death glares anyone could ever see.

"Seriously Niall, I'm not in the mood. Can't we talk some other time? I feel like crawling up into a ball and dying right now." I told him honestly as I began climbing the many staircases that led to my tiny flat.

"Wow, I feel loved." Niall stated holding a hand to his heart.

"You know that's not what I mean."

"Look I just need to talk to you. Things have changed since school. I just want to tell you what's been happening in our lives. And I wanna know what's happening in yours." Niall held the door open for me and both of us walked into the cold room. "Jesus Rosie, it's freezing in here. No wonder you're sick."

"My heating doesn't work. I've been meaning to get it fixed but I just don't have the time anymore." I trailed off as I shuffled over to the kettle in my kitchen. "Do you want tea?"

"Yeah thanks. But seriously you really need to get this sorted."

"I will when my exams are over." I finished making the two cups of tea and then took a seat next to the Irish boy. "Now come on, talk. The quicker is over with the quicker I can go die."

"Ok I'm gonna cut straight to the point." Niall started fidgeting with his hands nervously and then looked me in the eyes. "Louis loves you. He has loved you since day one and he hasn't stopped since."

"Bullshit." I declared taking a massive gulp from my steaming hot cup of tea. "Complete and utter bullshit. Look Niall I don't have time for this." I stood up, heading towards my room but Niall grabbed my arm.

"Rosie, hear me out please." I groaned and sat back down again although I was so close to just kicking him out. "Do you know how hard it was for him to see you today. To see that you've moved on from him. He was heartbroken Rosie." I felt like I'd been punched in the stomach from Niall's words.

"What?" My voice was barely above a whisper.

"Did you not see how he was acting. From the moment he saw you he tried to hide his feelings. That's why he was so rude to you. And when you mentioned Zach that just cracked him." Niall ran his hand through his hair and sighed. "He loves you."

"Why though? Why didn't he tell me all this two fucking years ago. I'm a wreck. My whole life is awful and I'm stuck doing something that I never wanted to. You guys are living the dream and so is Louis. You're doing what I've always dreamed of." I was beginning to get annoyed even thinking about Louis.

"He didn't get the chance to. He didn't know how to tell you either. I don't think you understand how hard Louis finds it to show how he feels. He always tries to make sure everyone else is happy before he sorts out himself. Kind of like you Rosie." I felt tears brimming in my eyes but wiped them away before they could fall. "Just think about it. I have to go to another interview but here's my number." Niall handed me a piece of paper and then left without saying another word.


"There you a-" Karmen paused when she saw me, looking me up and down. "You look terrifying." She commented as she gestured for me to come in.

"Thanks." I replied sarcastically. "I've had a bad day to say the least." I handed her the bag of Chinese food which she then took to the kitchen. I followed close after.

"Wanna tell me what happened?" Karmen hinted as I slumped onto her couch, lying like a hobo on a park bench. I suppose I should tell her what really went on. I hate not having someone to confide in and I guess Karmen could be the person.

"Where do I even begin?" I asked myself more than anyone else.

"How about at the very beginning. Starting with why you and Louis were so rude to each other today." Ok so obviously I'm not getting out of anything here. I sighed deeply and ran my hand through my hair.


"This is like something from one of those romantic tragedies Rosie." Karmen was literally eating popcorn in front of me, listening to me talk about Lou and I's past. Seriously she was no help. "It's so beautiful!" Karmen began to fake cry and I face-palmed myself in response.

"Nothing about this is beautiful Karmen. Besides, I was actually kind of hoping for some advice, not you listening to me blab on while you gorge on a bag of microwave popcorn."

"What do you need advice for Rosie! You have freaking Louis Tomlinson in love with you! Millions of girls would kill to be in your position and you're here moping about in my house when you could be on a romantic dinner for two with him. You're just too stubborn to admit you love him too." Karmen stuck her tongue out at me before shoving another mouthful of popcorn in.

"I don't love him! I love Zach! My boyfriend remember?" At least I don't think so, but even if I did there was no way was I telling her that. She'd only tease me to high heavens about it.

"Psht! Sure you don't! Zach may be a great guy but have you ever considered maybe hes nog the right guy for you?" Karmen scoffed. "Look you can deny it all you want, but I'm not going to listen to it. I got the One Direction Tour DVD is that ok with you?" I immediately started choking on my popcorn. "Kidding!' She shouted, bending over in laughter. I glared at her in response.

"Just please don't tell me you got something all mushy and romantic." Karmen coughed awkwardly and I couldn't help but laugh. "Oh god what did you get?"

She held up a DVD box to me. "The Notebook..." We both immediately burst into laughter and by the time we finished I was close to tears.

"How was I supposed to know that you were going to spill your feelings to me about Louis Tomlinson?"

"Why do you keep saying his full name. It's just weird." I commented, scrunching my face up at it.

"I don't know. I guess I'm not used to saying his name so casually." She soon joined me back on the couch and we pressed play.

Halfway through the movie, our eyes were glued to the screen. Karmen was practically crying over how she would 'never find a man to treat her like that and live a life of pure happiness'. In all honesty, it was hard not to envy this girl.

"What did you think of the boys anyway?" I asked out of curiosity. "Were they what you expected?"

"Well they were all hilarious and they seemed pretty fond of you too. I really like them why?"

"Just wondering..." A cheeky smile appeared on my face and I could sense Karmen was growing worried. "Who did you like most?"

"Rosie don't start." Karmen shoved my eager face out of the way of the TV screen and took another mouthful of popcorn.

"Come on! I just want to know! It's not like I'm going to set you up with one of the-" I was interrupted by my phone buzzing on the table. I picked it up and saw I had gotten a text from Meg.

"Who is it?" Karmen asked, sounding extremely uninterested.

"Oh just a friend from school." I saw Karmen's eyes widen.

"I swear if you tell me you went to school with the girls from Little Mix next I will personally strangle you."

"Oh awkward." That earned me a slap from Karmen. "Kidding! I'm allowed make jokes aren't I?"

"Funny. But seriously who?"

"Meg. The one I told you about who helped bully me along with Louis? But now were good friends." I saw a look of sudden realisation spread over Karmen's face.

"I gotcha! Jeez it's hard to keep up with your life of drama! No wonder you're studying it!"

"Oh she's coming to visit next week!" I exclaimed, reading the text from Meg. "You can meet her then."

"Do I want to meet her? After all she did kind of cause you to go through depression." Karmen seemed sort of apprehensive at the thought of meeting Meg.

"She's changed Karmen." I replied bluntly.

"And I'll trust you on that. I just won't trust her until I meet her myself."
