It wouldn't be the Same Without You

Who would've thought a shy girl could steal the heart of funny-boy Louis Tomlinson? He brings out a shining light in her, and they fall harder and harder for each other... Until something tears them apart...


11. A new friend and a surprise

Louis' POV
"I’ve never been so into somebody before, And every time we both touch I only want more, So tell me nothing’s going to change, yeah, And you won’t walk away, yeah, Cause even though every night you’ll know what I’ll say, Goodbye.
Baby, you don’t have to worry, I’ll be coming back for you, back for you, back for you, you, Lately, I’ve been going crazy, So I’m coming back for you, back for you, back for you, you"
I don't know why these lyrics suddenly meant so much to me, but as we had sung them at our concert, I knew they did. Alesha kept popping into my mind, and my knees started to feel like jelly when I thought about her.
"Lou!" Josh, our drummer, shouted from behind me. I turned around and saw his arm draped around a pretty redhead. She was tall, like a model.
"Hey, man, this is Vicky." Josh said, gesturing to the girl.
"Hey!" She said to me. I shook her hand and smiled to her. She had a small splash of freckles over her nose.
"Nice to meet you, love."
"So, Lou, I heard you're dating someone?" Josh said, lifting his eyebrow. I didn't know what to say. Were we dating? We hadn't been on a date with just the two of us, yet.
"Not really," I reply, "We haven't been on a date yet, but I really fancy her."
"What's her name?" Vicky asks.
"Wow. I know someone called Alesha from High school. She's a massive fan of you guys." I grew curious.
"What does she look like?"
"Dirty blond hair, big brown eyes, around 5 foot 5..."
The description was spot on. I pull out my phone and show her a photo I had taken of Alesha when she wasn't looking.
"Oh my god! That's Alesha! You're dating Alesha?!" She was just as shocked as I was. Did this meant she knew all the girls?
"What about Eloise, Lily, Claudia and Amy? Do you know them?" I ask. This was becoming weird.
"Oh my God! Yes, I do! I haven't seen them since I left for the USA for work, though. How are they?"
"They're great. In fact, them and the rest of the lads get on like paper and glue."
We talked for a good half hour. Vicky was really nice. She had moved to the USA after high school to pursue her career in modeling and had met Josh while there. They had been dating secretly for three months. We made plans to catch up with the lads and the girls, and they headed off, Josh kissing her cheek. My phone buzzed in my pocket, and I looked to see Alesha's name flashing on my screen.

I was shocked when Alesha texted me to make plans for our date. It wasn't something I thought she would do, but I liked how she was becoming more confident. It seemed more like her REAL personality, like she wasn't hiding anything anymore. And I was so excited for our first date.
I was meeting her at the cinema, like she had planned. I didn't know what we were watching, because when I asked, she laughed and said it was a surprise.

The back streets I was taking were coated in darkness, only the faint glow ahead lighting my path. My iPod was playing my favourite song, 'Look After you' by The Fray. I hummed to the music, clearing my mind. I thought about Alesha, again. She couldn't get out of my mind. I closed my eyes for a moment taking in my thoughts, and that's when I felt the presence. You know that feeling where someone was watching you, or following you? It was like that. I paused the music, a chill running down my spine, and slowly turned around. 'There's no one here.' I told myself as I scanned the area. There wasn't a single movement amongst the shadows, apart from a wild cat running out from behind a bin. 'Grow up Lou! Now you're afraid of a little cat? What would Harry say about that?!' I laughed at my stupidity, turned the music back on, and continued walking down the dark street. I could see the cinema. I could see her, standing in the foyer, waiting for me. Too bad that wasn't going to happen, because at that moment, I felt a sharp smack across the back of my head, and the world went black.
