Louis Doesn't Have To Know

Sophie Ayers never intended on meeting Louis, yet she was so thankful that she did. He showed her what it was to love, and how it was to BE loved. He healed her broken heart, and did it with that gorgeous smile on his face. But when Danielle and Liam break up and Sophie goes to comfort him, he tells Sophie it was because Danielle suspected him of having feelings for HER...and that his ex girlfriend wasn't wrong. Sophie soon finds herself caught in an addictive web of lies, schemes, and cheating. She falls in love with BOTH One Direction boys, and is unable to choose one over the other. Liam has an idea though: Louis doesn't have to know...right?

45. Breaking

Back to the ICU, Royal London Hospital...

Sophie opened the door to Louis' private room cautiously. She held her breath, leaning her head in slowly and carefully. Her hazel eyes were wide with nervousness. Louis was laying on the hospital bed, the white blanket pulled up to his waist. He had on a hospital gown, and she breathed a sigh of relief when she saw that he didn't have all the wires hooked up to his chest anymore; all he had connected was a single IV on his right arm. He was asleep.

Sophie stepped all the way in and quietly shut the door behind her. The room was dark, the only light coming from a lamp on the other side of the room; the curtains were drawn.

She looked back to Louis and cringed despite herself. He looked so small. She stepped up to the bed and sat down in the chair beside her husband.

Louis' eyes were purple all around the rim, and his face was covered in stubble from where he hadn't shaved while at the cabin. His hair was flat and she had the urge to put her hands in it and ruffle it up like she always did, which drove Louis crazy.

Sophie smiled sadly at herself. She always used to chase Louis around the house and try to mess up his hair right after he fixed it just perfect. It always ended the same way: Louis would turn around and pin Sophie's arms to her side, kissing her to stop her squealing. They would smile against each other's lips.

Sophie took in a sharp breath when she forced herself to look down at Louis' left arm. They had bandaged the cuts tightly, and there was a tiny patch of red where one of them must have opened again.

The tears began to fall.

"I'm so s-sorry Louis, I'm so sorry..." Sophie whispered, grasping Louis' hand and resting her forehead on his chest.

She sobbed quietly, her body trembling. Louis' chest rose and fell in a slow rythym as he took deep, sleeping breaths. Sophie pressed her ear down on his torso just to hear his heart beat. That heart used to belong to her. But now? She had no idea.

"Louis, I messed up." Sophie whispered to her sleeping significant other, "I messed up so bad. I-I never meant to hurt you, I was j-just so stupid and I wasn't th-thinking."

She didn't notice when Louis' breathing pattern began to change.

"I didn't plan on it happening Lou, I swear to you I didn't. And I-I tried to stop it, so many times, I tried. I just couldn't hurt either of you, you both mean so much to me and-"

Sophie cut herself off and Louis held his breath.

"And I just...I just wish you knew how sorry I am. I wish you knew that if I could go back in time and change it all I would. I would have never started things with him, I would've....no. No, if I could change anything, I would change the fact that we ever met." Sophie's tone got serious, almost angry. "I would go back in time and would have never ran into you at that stupid fashion show. That way, you wouldn't be here right now. You wouldn't be in the hospital, you wouldn't be maried to me, you wouldn't be heart broken. You'd be married to some beautiful, famous girl who wouldn't cheat on you, and..." The tears started again and Sophie was barely able to choke out her next words... "and you'd be happy" she whispered.

The room went quiet again. The only sounds were Sophie's sniffles and Louis' breathing.

Suddenly Sophie felt a light squeeze on her hand. Her eyes widened and she held her breath.


Louis' voice was hoarse and full of pain. Sophie pulled her head up quickly and turned to look at her husband. His eyes were open, but he was struggling to keep them that way. They were glazed over, yet his blue orbs still managed to get Sophie's heart fluttering even given the circumstances.

Sophie began to cry and she tried to smile at him. She raised up her other hand to rest against his cheek. He leaned into it, letting her support the weight of his head as he closed his eyes again. She stared at his beautiful face for what felt like hours, but was actually only seconds. He finally opened his hypnotic blue eyes again and her breath hitched.

"H-Hey" she finally stuttered out weakly.

Louis made an attempt to smile and his eyes closed and opened again slowly.

"Hi" he replied. A few seconds of silence passed, and they just stared into each other's eyes sadly. "Sophie...don't ever say that" he choked out slowly.

Sophie cocked her head to the side and traced her thumb over his cheekbone. "Wh--"

"What you said before, I heard you." Louis interrupted, "I heard everything you said." Sophie dropped her head down in shame. "Hey, look at me," Louis said firmly, seeming to be waking up more with each passing second. Sophie looked back up at him as he said, "Don't ever say you wish we hadn't met, or that I'd be better off without you. There's no one else Sophie." Sophie smiled sadly, but Louis kept his face stone rigid. "At least...there's no one else for me."

Sophie pursed her lips together to keep from crying out in pain. She honestly felt like a hot poker was stabbing her right in the chest. She squinted her eyes and looked down in pain as Louis disentwined their hands. Sophie let her hand drop from his face and leaned away from him to sit back in the bedside chair. Louis laid his head back on the pillow but continued to look at her. Sophie put her hands together and dug her nails into her palms so hard it hurt.

"Louis, I--"

"I know." Louis interrupted harshly, making Sophie turn her face away like she had been slapped. "You're sorry, I know. But it doesn't change anything Soph." he spat out at her. Her shoulders shook as she tried to hold back the sobs. "It doesn't change the fact that you cheated on me. For years." Louis' voice lowered to an almost whisper, trembling with hurt. "And...and with Liam, Sophie. One of my best mates. How...how could you do that to me?"

Louis' face twisted in pain as he finally said it out loud. Sophie turned to look at him, and tears were streaming down her cheeks. "I never meant to hurt you Louis, I just--" Louis turned his head away in disgust and Sophie frantically reached for his hand, which he jerked away immediately, "I just wasn't thinking clearly babe, I was confused and Liam--"

Louis whipped his head around to Sophie quickly and she stopped rambling immediately. "Don't...you...ever say his name to me again" he said menacingly. Sophie shrunk back in her chair. Louis looked back away, fury written all over his face.

It was silent for a moment.

"Louis, I swear I never thought it would have spiraled so out of control, I--"

"When was the last time you slept with him?" Louis suddenly asked, turning his head back to her. Sophie's eyes widened in shock and her mouth parted, but no words came out. "Well? When was it?" Louis egged on. "Have you been sleeping with him since we got married?"

"No, no, I broke it off with him when we got engaged Louis, I promise you I did!" Sophie said frantically, scooting up in her chair and starting to reach for him, but thinking better of it at the last minute, letting her hand drop back down.

"So you haven't slept with him since we got engaged?" Louis pressed.

Sophie looked down in shame. Louis inhaled sharply and fisted his hands in the hospital blanket.

"I see. Have you slept with him since we got married?" he decided to ask.

Sophie opened her mouth to speak, but kept getting choked on her words. "I-I--" she shut her eyes and bit her lip so hard she almost made it bleed.

Louis laughed sarcastically. "God, Sophie! Is that how you 'break things off' with someone? You continue sleeping with them?!"

"No!" Sophie shouted as she tried to defend herself. "It was just one time, maybe a year after we got married. That was it, I swear to you Louis!"

Louis' face was turned away from Sophie, but at her words he very slowly rolled his head over on the pillow to look at her. She held her breath expectantly.

"You slept with him...a year after we got married?" he asked very slowly.

Sophie's eyes widened and her face paled. She had just made a big mistake. Her jaw dropped but there was nothing she could say.

Louis' face twisted in repugnance and he said sickeningly, "Oh my God--"

"No Louis, don't think that, Lilly is--"

"She's what?!" Louis shouted back. "She's my child? How do you know Sophie, how could you possibly know that she's mine if you had sex with him just before you found out you were pregnant?!"

Sophie bit her lip and let the tears spill over, not even trying to hold them back. Her voice dropped to an almost inaudible whisper. "I just know, Louis."

Louis shook his head and laid it back on the pillow to stare up at the ceiling. He was shaking with fury and he fisted his hands in the sheets. He closed his eyes and took in a deep, calming breath before lifting his head back up and looking at Sophie. She was holding her head in her hands now and trembling. Her sandy blonde hair was cascading down to her shoulders in her signature waves. Why did she have to be so beautiful to him? Well, beautiful on the outside.

"Sophie?" he asked, his voice much calmer.

She lifted her head up and looked at him with shame in her eyes. "Yes?" she asked hoarsely with a defeated tone.

"Sophie, I love you." Sophie's jaw dropped and she looked at him in shock, hope instantly bursting through her hazel eyes. "There's no other girl that's ever made me feel like you do, and this doesn't make me stop loving you, I can assure you that." Sophie smiled and sat up in her chair, grabbing his hand with her left and putting her right hand against his cheek again. Louis' face was unchanging. "The past four years have been the best of my life, and I know it's all thanks to you. And I also know that you do love me, more you than you love...him."

Sophie nodded frantically and stroked his cheek with her thumb. "Yes, I promise I do Louis, I promise..."

Louis nodded back at her and continued, "I believe all that Sophie, I really do."

Sophie smiled so big her mouth hurt.

"But Sophie?" he asked, making sure she listened to his next words very carefully.

"What babe?" she asked eagerly.

Louis took in a deep breath.

"I want a divorce."
