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?

29. Nightmare Come To Life

Still at the lakefront, 12:11 p.m.:

Time froze in that moment. Harry and Liam stared at Louis, and Louis just glared at Liam. Had he heard all of that correctly? Sophie, his wife, his heart, the mother of his child...had she belonged to another this whole time? Had she belonged to one of his best mates? Was anything real?

"Louis, let me--" Liam began.

"Is it true?" Louis spat out, cutting Liam off mid-sentence.

Liam looked shocked for a moment, and Harry was still white as a ghost and not saying a word. "Is w-what true?" Liam asked cautiously, stuttering a bit.

"Were you telling the truth when you said she loved you too? Did she tell you that?"

Liam was silent.

"I heard you say it Liam. I want to know if it's true."

"Lou, please--"

"DID SHE SAY THOSE WORDS LIAM? DID SHE SAY SHE LOVED YOU?" Louis was screaming now, and trembling uncontrollably. Liam looked down at the ground, feeling more ashamed than he ever had in his entire life.

"It was a long time ago Louis" Liam almost whispered, but was still audible. "We were younger, and confused. It's...complicated."

Louis was speechless. Sophie, the girl he loved more than anything in this entire world...Sophie loved someone else. She had said, "I love you" to another man...she had said "I love you" to Liam.

His world was crashing around him.

Suddenly, Louis was on top of Liam, having moved so fast that neither Liam nor Harry had any real time to react. Louis punched Liam in the face again and again, feeling hot blood squirt out from his nose and lip, busting them both. Liam wasn't even making any attempts to fight back, or even protect himself. He deserved this.

Harry attempted to pull Louis off of Liam at one point, screaming at him to stop, to just try and calm down. Louis heard nothing though, all he heard was Sophie saying "I love you" over and over again, realizing that none of it was real. It was all a lie, because of Liam.

Louis turned around and pushed Harry to the ground, just to turn back to Liam once more. His eyes were red with absolute fury and his friend had blood all over his face and collar. Liam fluttered his eyes open and looked up at Louis with an expression that read, "I'm so sorry".

Louis reared his fist back and punched Liam one more time, square in the jaw, knocking his former friend completely unconscious.

Louis stepped off of him and tried to breathe normally, but he couldn't because of the anger that was still building up in his chest, growing more and more with each passing second. He turned and looked at Harry, who was still laying on the sand from where he had pushed his best friend down. Harry just looked up at him wide eyed and in shock. Louis would feel bad about that later. Not now though. All he could feel right now was the anger. Pure anger.

Louis stormed up the hill to the house, ignoring Harry's calls for him to come back. He knew Harry wouldn't follow him, at least not until he made sure Liam was okay. Somewhere deep inside, Louis hoped he had killed Liam. That rat bastard was no friend to him, not anymore.

Louis got up to the house and flung the door open violently. He heard Sophie, Niall, Zayn, and Lilly in the living room talking and laughing, but they got quiet when they heard him enter. He made no effort to conceal his contempt, and he stormed up the stairs to his and Sophie's bedroom.

As he entered the lavish bedroom, his stomach did a somersault. So many memories they had shared in here; full of love, laughter, happiness...it all meant nothing to him now. Everything was a lie, his whole reality had been shattered.

A lyric from one of the band's earlier songs popped into his head suddenly: Reality ruined my life. He had never quite understood it until right at that very moment.

Louis grabbed a suitcase from his closet and started throwing random clothes in. He also grabbed his toothbrush, his phone charger, and his laptop.

Just as he was zipping the final zipper on the suitcase, he heard a familiar voice behind him.

"Louis what are you doing?" his Irish friend sounded so concerned, so worried. This was going to kill Niall once he found out, the poor guy couldn't stand conflict.

Louis said nothing and picked the suitcase up off the bed before making a beeline for the door and down the stairs. Niall said something as Louis shoved him out of the way, but Louis paid no attention. All he could hear was the blood pumping through his ears and the constant repetition of Sophie saying "I love you, I love you, I love you..."

He made no effort to be quiet as he headed for the door, and was about to walk straight to his car without a word, but he made the mistake of glancing back to the living room as he made it to the base of the stairs.

He saw Zayn standing up and looking at him concerned, but Sophie had also stood up at this point, and was holding Lilly up in the air and smiling at her, blowing rasberries on her stomach and making their daughter cackle.

That was the breaking point for Louis. How dare she hold their child after what she had done, after what she had been doing all this time? Was she even his child?

That thought knocked the wind out of him for a moment and he almost doubled over in a pain like he'd never felt before.

Sophie turned to look at Louis then, and saw that he had a suitcase in his hand and that his face was twisted in what can only be described as pure agony. She lowered Lilly from the air and held her daughter at her hip. "Louis, what's wrong?"

She noticed that Louis was shaking uncontrollably, and his eyes...they scared her. She'd never seen him like this before.

Niall and Zayn went to take a step in towards Louis, but suddenly he dropped his suitcase, letting it fall to the ground loudly, making Sophie jump. He took five big strides over to Sophie, and she shrinked away from him. He didn't touch her though, but instead just took Lilly out of her arms.

"Louis, what are you--"

"Don't speak to me" the words were like venom, and he might as well have slapped Sophie across the cheek. She would have preferred that.

Louis turned on his heel violently and walked back over to his suitcase, leaning down to pick it up then storming out the door, picking his keys up off a side table on the way. Niall and Zayn had been calling out to him this whole time, but he paid no mind. He was leaving, and no one was going to stop him.

Sophie was frozen for about two seconds after the door closed, but then her brain clicked back on. Louis was leaving...he was leaving her, with their daughter in tow.

Suddenly she was shouting, running through the house and stumbling out the door, her legs still weak from her earlier episode. As she busted through the front door and onto the porch, Niall and Zayn caught her from falling down the steps, but she pushed past them onto the sidewalk and towards Louis' car, where he was likewise heading about fifteen steps in front of her.

"Louis! Louis please, tell me what you're doing, why are you taking Lilly? Louis!"

He paid her no mind though, as if he couldn't hear her.

Oh God...she thought to herself, realization dawning on her, suffocating her. It's my nightmare. This is my nightmare, the one that I have every night. 

And she was right. This was her nightmare, come to life. She even knew her next line.

"Louis...please" she whimpered out softly but audibly through the tears that were cascading down her face at this point. Louis stopped in his tracks, Lilly still in his arms, gazing up at her father.

Louis turns on his heel slowly to face her, and she knows exactly what she'll see.

His look is of pure hatred. Pure disgust. Pure contempt. He despises every fiber of her being.

She waits for him to look past her, like he does in the nightmare, and it only takes a few seconds. She shuts her eyes tight, and knows she shouldn't look, but she does anyway. 

Sophie looks over her shoulder and sees Harry struggling up the hill, Liam's weight almost fully on him. Liam's entire face is bloody, and one of his eyes is completely swollen shut. What the hell happened to him? Sophie lets out a small gasp as she realizes that Louis must have heard Harry and Liam discussing everything and when Louis went to check on them...he'd heard. Louis knew, and he had beat the shit out of Liam for it. But Liam was a good fighter, he even took boxing lessons...why did he let Louis hurt him so badly? Suddenly, Niall and Zayn run over to help Harry, and Liam looks up.

Liam looks at Sophie for just a fraction of a second with his one good eye, then past her to Louis. He seems confused for a moment, but it clicks in his brain that Louis is leaving Sophie, and taking Lilly with him. How could he do that to her? How could he abandon her and take their daughter? No matter how badly he wished Sophie were with him instead of Louis, and that Lilly were his daughter, he knows that if Louis leaves then Sophie will be absolutely crushed. She won't know how to function, she won't know how to live. His expression changes suddenly and he gives Louis the same look that Louis had just given Sophie. A look of pure detest.

Sophie whips back around to face Louis, just like she does every time in the nightmare. Then he says the two words she desperately wished wouldn't come out of his mouth, though she knew they would. The nightmare predicted it for her.

"How could you?" he asks.

Louis stares at her for a moment, then takes two steps to his car, places Lilly in a carseat, and drives off. Leaving Sophie on her knees, wailing to the sky.
