Foolishly completely fallen

Life can be pretty crazy when your twin brother happens to be Liam Payne, and your touring around the world with them. And to make it crazier you've kind of got a huge crush on your best friend, who happens to be in Liam's band... Yeh that's my life right now. Charlotte Payne, that's me or Charlie as the boys tend to call me. People who don't know me compare me to Liam and think i'm just like him, when in all honesty were almost complete opposites. Really the only similarities were our eyes and hair color. Some think i'm using his fame, other's think i'm an annoying girl with the perfect life. When there's four people who know the truth about what keeps me up at night in fear. And why there are bruises scattered all over my body. There's only four people who i can trust with everything. When my life is everything far from perfect. Maybe i'll be able to finally trust another person enough to open up about my scary secrets and possibly find love along the way...

14. Chapter 14 ☆ remembering piece by piece

Harry’s P.O.V.

We were on the tour bus again. It wasn’t quite as nice when we had so many people piled in there with us. There was little space to move around in, leaving only a few spots for everyone to hang out in. It made it easy to find anyone you were looking for. I passed by the bunk room and into the back room where I found exactly who I was looking for. She was sat on the couch, her back to me and resting against the armrest. Her feet were resting in Daniel’s lap. A notebook held tightly in her hands, as she scratched word after word onto the page. Perfect.

I sat down on the couch across from them after shutting the door behind me. The noise catching Payton’s attention causing her to look up.

“Hi Harry” She smile widely, her hair falling around her face as she looked up.

“What you doing there” I asked softly lifting my hand to gesture towards the book held in her grasp.

“oh.” She said almost startled looking back down at her lap before looking back up with a smile “I’m working on a new song”

“Can I see?” I asked, she smiled widely and nodded her head handing over the notebook. My smile grew into a grin when I read the lyrics. Payton loved performing but she loved writing songs even more. She really had a gift. If she could, she’d spend all of her time writing new songs.

“I really like it” I grinned looking back up at her and handing the notebook back over to her.

“Thanks” She smiled tucking a strand of hair behind her ear. God she was beautiful, even when she wasn’t trying and was in her sweats. Stop it Harry. Calm yourself and take a step back. You need to refrain yourself, only two more days till she’ll be yours, you can wait that long. I argued with myself, but schooled my face to seem indifferent.

I leant back in my seat as I looked over at Daniel who was looking down at his phone texting rapidly with his eyebrows furrowed. He seemed to stare anxiously down at it as he waited for a reply.

“Who you texting?” I asked trying not to let him know I was on to him. His eyes snapped up towards me in surprise only just noticing I was here. As if he was in his own little world.

“Oh, um no one” He stuttered uneasily.

“Doesn’t seem like no one, if you’re that anxious for a reply”

“It’s just a friend of mine is all, they’re having problems with their plane ticket arrangements and stuff.”

“Oh yeah, I forgot Isn’t Jay flying out in a couple days to visit us?” Payton interrupted suddenly looking up from her notebook with an excited smile.

“Y-yeah” Daniel smiled weakly.

“I’m so excited now” Payton seemed to come to life with her giddiness. “I’ve missed them so much!” I watched on silently as Payton spoke rapidly on all the things the three of them would have to do together.

So I had a name now. All was falling into place. And I could tell Daniel was timid about the whole thing considering his reaction to everything.

Charlie’s P.O.V.

I was wandering around our hotel we had arrived at today. I didn’t even know where we were and I didn’t really seem to care. Our management had booked out the whole 6th floor of our hotel, so we wouldn’t have to worry about fans finding out our rooms and bothering us. We all had our own rooms, even Daniel and Payton were split up, which I don’t really understand why. I was looking for Justine because she had been MIA since her date with Niall. Both of them had been avoiding all of us. And I was determined to get to the bottom of it.

I heard yelling and laughter coming from one of the rooms when I turned the corner. I sighed and stepped in front of it. I knew it was one of the boy’s rooms but no idea whose it was. I raised my hand and knocked loudly. I heard the room go eerily silent and a lot of shushing. I couldn’t hear any movement from inside. I banged louder on the door growing inpatient.

“It’s me, open up. I know you guys are in there” I yelled annoyed. I heard movement in the room and what sounded like a mocking “yeah Zayn, go open the door for your girlfriend” with kissing noises but I couldn’t be too sure because I heard a loud thump and a lot of snickering before footsteps grew louder as they came closer to the door. I looked around me quickly as I crossed my arms and waited for the door to open.

“Um, hi babe” Zayn smiled wearily as he stood in the gap the door created, blocking me from seeing into the room. He leaned down and pressed a quick soft kiss to my lips, my arms slipping from their crossed position. I blinked up at him momentarily forgetting what I even knocked on the door for before I heard more kissy noises from behind him and muffled laughter.

“What’s going on in there?” I asked

“In here,” Zayn gestured behind him and when I shook my head and gave him a ‘yes you idiot’ look he said “oh nothing out of the normal here.” He tried to sound casual but failed terribly. I raised an eyebrow at him as more laughter echoed throughout the room and a loud thud happened seizing the laughter.

“Zayn, let me in.” I said trying to slip under his arm and into the room.

“Why there’s nothing going on” Zayn said stepping in front of me to block me.

“Zayn, move” I said narrowing my eyes.

“No” he said crossing his arms with a smirk. I heard a chorus of “ooohhhs” from behind him. Almost boosting his ego.

“Oh really now.” I said crossing my own arms. “Move or you’ll regret it. Don’t think I wouldn’t stop talking to you” I threw in jokingly.

“I’d survive.” He said still not budging. I stared at him silently for a few seconds before quickly trying to shoulder past him. But he was quicker, he got a firm grip on my shoulder stopping me. And that’s when my vision started swimming with black dots. I heard muffled screams around me, I couldn’t control my body and everything went limp. I felt arms around me but I didn’t know who’s they were. And then everything went black.

***

 I pushed the door right open, and saw Lou fast asleep on his bed. Sheets tangled all around him, and clothes strewn all over the floor. I closed the door behind me gently, before taking a running leap onto Louis' sleeping form. His eyes snapped open and before he could scream I slapped my hand over his mouth. 

"Louis! I'm going to move my hand but you have to be really quiet" I whisper yelled with a wide grin, and a mischievous glint in my eyes. He simply nodded, and as soon as I removed my hand a knowing smirk graced his lips.

"Now Charlie, as much as I love you waking me up at ungodly hours of the night" he began.  I whacked him lightly on the chest interrupting him, causing him to send me a mock offended look.

"As, I was saying what are you doing? It's 5 a.m." Louis whispered.

"Well my fine Lou Bear no one else is up yet!" I whisper yelled. A mischievous twinkle appeared in his eye. 

"Well, what are we waiting for?!" He declared and promptly pushed me off his chest causing me to roll off the bed and land on the ground with a loud thump.

"Charlie? Where’d you go?" Louis whispered.

"Hown Dere" I mumble into the carpet. Louis’ head popped over the side of the bed, shoulders shaking with silent laughter. He rolled me over and bit his lip trying to contain his laughter.

"You gonna help me up or what, idiot?" I whisper laughed. Louis reluctantly gave me a hand and pulled me up. 

***

"You have 3 seconds before I kill you...” Harry declared while lifting his head up. A look of pure anger filled his face.

"1, 2... 3!"

I went wide eyed and raced out of his room. I ran down the hall screaming bloody murder "HELP! LOUIS! LIAM! NIALL! ZAYN!" while a still naked harry chased me while laughing evilly. I heard loud thumping and all the boys appeared at the door ways with Louis and Niall running up the stairs. They all stared at us wide eyed. 

I screeched louder when I heard Harry getting closer. I ran straight for Zayn yelling "ZAYN PROTECT ME!" and leapt straight into his arms.

***

Paul was carrying me over his shoulder in a fireman's hold while I kept trying to squirm out of his grip. 

"Paul, pretty please let me down"

"Okay" He says before swinging me off his shoulder as I let out a very girly squeal and land on the ground with a soft thump. 

"Thanks. Can someone help me up?" I ask wide eyed, my arms out like a little baby asking to be picked up.

"I got ya." Zayn laughs, playfully rolling his eyes. Before bending over and letting me wrap my arms around his neck while he puts an arm under my knees and my back carrying me bridal style to where everyone else is sitting in the terminal waiting for our flight to be called. 

Once we get to the seats Zayn sits down plopping me down in his lap, while we watch Louis whine at Harry.

"Hazza, why don't you carry me like that? I thought you loved me." Lou pouts and just goes on and on about how it's not fair. While all of us just snicker at Harry's dumbfounded expression. 

***

"Good morning." Zayn whispers. The butterflies in my stomach start to erupt. A sweet smile falls on to my lips, and I hide my face in his neck so he doesn't notice the blush that's crept up my neck and has reached my cheeks. Giggling I say good morning too, but its muffled by his neck. 

After several minutes of sitting in the peaceful quietness I lift my head up from his neck to see him staring down at me with a sweet smile on his face. We both start laughing. I playfully swat his chest, and he chooses that moment to flick my forehead. I gently push him away laughing harder when he almost falls out of the bunk. His eyes flash with panic before I grab his arm, keeping him from falling to the ground.

"Whoa, that was a close one."

"Yeh it was. Jeeze. Thanks Char."

"No problem, and why am I in your bunk and not my own?"

"Well you would be in yours, but someone has some serious unpacking issues" he laughed.

"I completely forgot, I’m sorry. And thank you for letting me sleep in your bunk... I could have just slept on the couch."

"You honestly think I would have let you sleep on the couch?" He asks with a disbelieving smile.

"Well, I guess no, but you really didn't have to share your bunk with me, I would have been fine on the couch. But thank you."

"Don’t worry about it char." He says quietly, eyes staring deeply into my own.

***

 Zayn quickly rolled away from me as Louis stood there shrieking like a little girl. “OHMIGOD THEY WERE GOING AT IT LIKE ANIMALS!" I hid behind my hands as I tried to steady my breathing and racing heart. I hope he doesn’t regret it.

"Louis shut up. Please. Please just be quiet." I mumble from behind my hands.

I peek out from behind my fingers to see Louis rolling around on the ground laughing his arse off. As we hear footsteps racing this way from the front of the bus. Great. Just great. Liam's the first one to come in to eye sight. He has a panicked expression on his face. Harry's right behind him trying to see what's wrong. Liam doesn't notice us at first but when he does he freezes, gapes at us before narrowing his already anger filled eyes. Harry notices next and starts laughing like a hyena. "Oh my god. Stop staring like I'm some sort of freak!" I screeched.  Harry and Louis quickly scurried out of the room, no doubt eavesdropping from the other room. Liam just stood there motionless, anger radiating off his body.

“WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING” He seethes. “DON”T EVEN THINK ABOUT TOUCHING HER MALIK” he growls. Zayn freezes before pulling his hand back to his chest. I could feel the tears prickling at the corners of my eyes from just the pure look of disappointment and confusion written all over Liam's face. Trying but failing to keep them in, silent angry tears roll down my face as I quickly rip the blanket off my body. I stumble over a tensed Zayn, and out of the bunk. As soon as my feet land on the floor Liam grabs my shoulder roughly, before he can do too much damage this time I shove him away from me. He collides with the wall of the bus, letting out a growl.

“You can’t tell me what to do Liam.” I seethe at him.

“Yes I can. I don’t want you dating one of my band mates let alone snogging them” He growls back at me.

“Well that’s none of your own damn business, you can’t tell me who I can and can’t date or kiss.”

“I can and I will” He says before roughly grabbing my shoulder once again, his short nails digging into my skin. An involuntary whimper of pain leaves my mouth as Liam keeps a tight grip on my shoulder. I can hear Zayn trying to disentangle himself from the sheets as he falls back in to reality and what is happening not 2 feet away from him.

“No you can’t.” I say narrowing my eyes at him.

“Oh really?”

“Yes really.” I say. Before Zayn can even climb out of the bunk I’ve already twisted out of Liam’s grip and kneed him in the groin. Liam falls to his knees, his face screwed up in pain.

I rush past Liam and out the door connecting the bunk room with the kitchen.

***

“I’d do anything to make sure you were okay Char.” Niall whispered into my neck, his voice cracking at the end, betraying him. I can feel Niall’s tears fall down onto my neck. “You have no idea how much I worry about you Char.” He laughed brokenly. I swear Niall was put through more pain then I was when I get hurt. This boy has saved me from giving up. I’ve been so close to the edge so many times, but he’s saved me too many times to count. I couldn’t thank him enough for it. He’s really been my rock. The only thing keeping me sane.

“I do Niall. I really do, and I can’t thank you enough for it.” Silence fills the room as I lightly stroke Niall's artificial blonde tufts of hair. Waiting for the question that he’s bound to ask. He asks every time and I tell him, every detail.  It happens every time. He’ll calm me down, fix the pain, cry, and then ask the question. Every time. I always tell him, knowing he’s one of the only people I can trust with secrets as personal as these.

“What happened this time?” He asks quietly, almost scared of what the answer will be.

So I tell him. 

***

“I just-can we talk for a minute” Liam pleaded.

“I’m listening.” I said as I stood up.

“I just… I’m sorry, okay. I’m so sorry about yesterday, about everything. I just want you to trust me again”

“It’s just whatever, Liam, okay.” I said pushing past him and out of the room.

***

My eyes snapped open. I was lying on the ground. Zayn was crying beside me, along with Niall. Everyone was panicking. My head was cradled in Zayn’s hands. Liam, Louis, and Harry were screaming their heads off. I heard pounding footsteps running up the hall towards us. I weakly brought my hands to my ears as I tried to block out their screaming, they shortly stopped when they noticed me moving. All of them desperate to make sure I was okay. Zayn and Niall had smothered me in a giant hug from the both of them. I was confused.

“I’m fine, I’m fine. What happened?” I asked pulling away from them and rubbing at my forehead. Paul and a few others had gathered at the open doorway.

“I-I tried to stop you from walking into the room and y-you just blacked out” Zayn stuttered. Tears slipping down his cheeks. I frowned feeling terrible for worrying them.

“I’m fine, I promise. I-I just remembered a few things.” I said a bit confused. “Well, I-I think I did. It all seemed so real.”

“What’d you remember?” they all seemed to ask at once.

I rubbed my hand over my forehead with a grimace before saying “I remembered jumping on Louis to wake him up and us being obnoxious in waking all of you up. Harry chasing me down the hall naked and having Zayn protect me from him.” I earned a few chuckles from the boys at that. “And the flight there and then umm…” I blushed a scarlet at the thought of mine and Zayn’s first kiss. “I remembered umm… our kiss.” I coughed awkwardly looking at Zayn, and it really only caused him to smile softly. “And then our fight, and you trying to apologize” I said emotionlessly towards Liam.

“That’s all I remembered” I said as a silence dragged on after my final admittance of remembering.

“That’s great, you remembered so much!” Zayn smiled pulling me into his chest for another hug.

I nodded my head numbly as the others around me smiled and talked avidly about their excitement for me. All I could hear though was a distinct *thump* *thump thump* *thump* echoing throughout my head. I shook my head, trying to shake the feeling away. I used Zayn’s shoulder to push myself up and stand on my own dwindling legs. I shakily made my way out of the door way and down the hall against everyone’s wishes. I leant against the wall to keep me upright as I walked. I got about twenty feet from the doorway before I felt a pair of arms wrap around me, steadying me. I looked to my left and saw Zayn giving me a weary smile, his arm looped around my waist and his other holding my hand. He didn’t rush me or even mention my unsteadiness, and how much I was relying on him to keep me upright.

I winced slightly and froze in my steps as the thumping got louder in my head. I squeezed Zayn’s hand tight as I seized my movements. Zayn rubbed circles in my back with his hand and pressed a kiss to my knuckle as the thumping grew quieter.

“Okay, I’m good” I said quietly, cracking my eyes open. Zayn nodded his head okay, and gently lead me down the hall and to my room. I shook my head ‘no’ as Zayn tried to lead me into the room, causing him to look at me curiously.

“I need to talk to Justine.” I get out, but Zayn just gives me a look and says.

“It can wait, you need some rest” He says trying to lead me into the room. I frown and shake my head no.

“Charlie, come on” he sighs, stopping and just standing in front of me, looking down at me.

“c’mon, I’ll make you some tea and…” he begins with a soft smile brushing the hair out of my face and wrapping an arm around my waist pulling me closer. “We can cuddle… and sit and watch stupid reality television till the wee hours in the morning” he chuckles a bit at the end. I smiled softly and wrapped my arms around his waist. He leant down and pressed a kiss to my forehead. I grinned up at him as he pushed another strand of hair behind my ear.

I knew the others could still see us, could feel their eyes burning into my back. But I couldn't care less right now, when the fact that the guy that I loved was holding me. This was my boyfriend, my boyfriend. And he was offering to make me tea and sit and watch terrible reality TV with me. God, I loved this boy. Zayn leant down and pressed a few lingering kisses to my lips then one to my nose.

I weighed my options. I could either go find Justine and confront her about her date with Niall, or I could spend the rest of the night with my boyfriend. And who knew how much more time I’d have alone with him considering the tour would be picking up soon, meaning more tour dates in a shorter amount of time. He was going to be exhausted and it was going to be hard.

“You know I’m not going to take no for an answer” He smiled down at me, his eyes crinkling at the side. He swayed us slightly from side to side. This was the Zayn I missed. The one that I hadn’t seen in a while. I mockingly rolled my eyes with a grin none the less, letting him pull me into the room. I guess I could just interrogate Justine another day. This offer was too good to pass up anyways.
