Back For You

They say friendship lasts forever. Louis Tomlinson and Lillian Brie thought that this statement was completely true. But when one "yes" from Simon Cowell changes their fate together they need to find their way back together. After years of solitude, Louis comes back to Doncaster for a visit. Just as he promised. Because when two people are meant to be, they will always find their way back.


9. Day 8 - You're Killing Me


I woke up to the sounds of shouting and arguing downstairs. My door burst open revealing a very flustered looking Harry.

"You're finally up Boo Bear," he said instantly calming down. He carried me into my chair and pushed me outside, "We have something you need to hear." 

He wheeled me outside to the kitchen where everyone was crowded around the phone. Marley looked as if she was crying, Cherie looked as if she was about to explode. I could tell that they had just received the news about Lily. 

"What happened?" I asked, Marley pointed, with a shaky hand, to the phone. Harry ran over and pressed the Voice Mail button. I heard a tone before I heard Lily's voice. 

"Hey Guys, it's Lily. I just wanted to let you know that I am leaving. I've not gone far so if you guys ever need me I'm a phone call away. I'm just staying with my mum in London for the moment."

I could tell that she was trying to be as calm as she could about this. But I could hear the sadness radiating through her voice. 

"I'm sorry I couldn't tell you in person. I just thought it would be easier, for me, this way. I love you all very much. Even you Harry, Niall, Zayn and Liam. As for you Lou. I am so sorry. Just remember, I love you most and we will always be best friends. No matter what happens."

Her last words struck a chord in my head. I started reciting it out loud.

"No matter what happens," I whispered "No matter what happens."

All of a sudden it all came back to me. I then remembered. 7 days ago we were talking about Lily's ex-boyfriend Derek and she said those words to me. I then kissed her. I looked around at six very familiar faces that were all staring down at me inquisitively. 

"I remember!" I shouted, "Everything, I remember everything. Could someone pass me my phone?"

Everything suddenly came back to me in a flash of memories. Liam passed me my mobile and I grabbed it  and punched in Lily's number. She answered after a couple of rings, I frantically spoke into it.

"Lily I remember everything. Please come back to me." 

"Y-you remember?" she stuttered,

"Yes! Please come back," I begged, "You said you would." 

"Lou..." she whimpered, thats when somebody came through the door. It was Eleanor.

"Louis!" she screamed running over to me, knocking the phone out of my hand, "Oh my gosh thankgod you are alright!" 

She gave me a massive hug and a massive kiss on the cheek. I heard Lily through the phone,

"Lou? Lou? Is that Eleanor? Lou? Are you there? Where are you? Hello?" 

"I heard on the news that, that little Lily girl put you in the hospital. But that's ok. I'm here for you Lou." 

I heard silence on the other end of the phone. Lil's must have heard. I quickly explained to El what happened before shooing her out of the house and picking up the phone.

"Lou, I just checked my twitter. Everyone really hates me, this never happened before..." she sobbed, "I think it would be better for me and for you if I just left. I don't want you risking your career for me."

"No!" I shouted, everyone was looking at me expectantly, "Just where are you? Please come back to me!" 

"Lou," she began, "I would do absolutely anything right now to snuggle next to you. To just bury my head in your chest and interlock my fingers with yours. I want to look up at you and smile. I want to lean up and just kiss you whenever and where ever I want to. I want to be able to tell you how I feel about you whenever I want to but you're Louis Tomlinson of One Direction. And all of that, its just a fantasy!" 

"It's not a fantasy," I whispered through the phone, "We can be exactly like normal couples."

"No we can't," she cried "You deserve so much better than me Lou! You never argue with Eleanor, you never fight. And how would we end up Lou? In a bunch of broken pieces."

"You don't understand Lil's!" I screamed "I want it all. The pointless bickering, the long walks, the late night phone calls, the cute goodmorning texts. I want to have cute pictures with you, to hold your hand, to call you love. The joking, the tickle wars. I want to be one of those inseparable best friend couples where people are always like 'You're still together? After all this time?' I want it all, but I only want it all with you. But what am I to you? Just another celebrity?"

There was silence. I waited for her response patiently, listening to the steady rhythm of her breath. 

"Lou, you're not just a celebrity," she began very cautiously, "You're my best friend. You're my boyfriend. But you're alot more than that. And you know what? You're not my whole life. But you're the only damn person that I want to spend it with and you're not my world. But you're the best thing in it. And I love you Lou and thats why I'm stepping away. Because all of this hate is going to get to me one day and you know how I get when I'm on edge and-"

"And nothing. If we both love each other what are we doing wasting time?" I asked, we returned to silence. I heard a female voice in the background saying something like "It's time to board miss." 

"No, no no no no please don't go," I begged gripping onto the phone "I love you,"

There was silence, I could only hear her heavy breathing as she hung up the phone. 

"What happened?" Marley asked tears clouding her eyes,

"She's gone..." I mumbled dropping the floor to the ground, "I guess thats it..." 

"Just get over her mate," Harry murmured walking up to me, "You're better off without her."  

"You'll find someone like her Lou," Niall said sitting down on the couch, "There are plenty like her,"

"No." I said very strictly, 'You obviously never properly met her. Everything about her is beautiful. The way she makes me feel alive, the way she makes me feel important and loved. The way she smiles is contagious to me. Her smiles shines bright. Her eyes are soft and warm. She has a beautiful spirit. Her hair flows down soft and pretty. Her body is slender and sexy. Her laugh, is the CUTEST thing you will ever hear. Her hugs make you feel complete and her kisses. Her kisses sends your whole body into shock. And when she says I love you, you feel as if you finally have a place here on earth." 

"Then there's only one thing to do!" Liam exclaimed, "Lets go get her!" 

"She's boarding for London now..." I said looking down,

"We're one direction! Lets just take the next flight out of here!" Zayn said "We can all pack quickly and go to London! We'll stay at your place."

"I don't think I'm able to travel and would you guys be alright with that?" 

"Yeah! It's an adventure!" Cherie said clapping her hands, jumping up and down. "It will be exciting! Plus, you guys must have some sort of priority! You are 1D!"

I rolled my eyes at her comment. I had enough of being 1D's Louis Tomlinson for today. I just wanted to be Louis for today. The boys all frantically repacked, same with the girls. Liam finished first so he packed my bag and before we knew it we were out the door being mobbed by paparazzi.

"Louis, is it true that your ex-girlfriend Lillian Brie has fled the country to avoid further charges against your injury?"

I felt like punching that man, I felt like punching him square in the face but instead I grabbed the microphone out of his hand and said,

"To all of you reporters out there, Miss Lillian Brie did not put me in the hospital and she is not fleeing the country she is visiting her mum. So all of that is complete and utter bull-"

Harry covered my mouth giving the cameras a smile when he moved his hand I continued speaking,

"My point is that paparazzi was hounding us. When we were running away I had a little car accident. I wasn't being careful and because of that I ended up getting hit by a car. So it's my fault, not hers. Ok? MY FAULT,"

I was being wheeled away by Niall as I continued shouting at the reporters. When I was safely secured in the van I felt a sharp pain in my leg. I looked down and there was a giant bandage. The doctors must have given me some sort of shot or something. I tried moving my leg and surprisingly it obeyed my command. I then tried to stand up and once again, to my surprise I got up. I sat back down quickly as Harry sped to the airport. 

When we arrived they all jumped out of the car. Zayn came round the back opening up the door for me. The look on his face when I stood up was priceless. 

"Don't bother gawking we have something to do!" 

When I stepped out of the van the rest of the guys had very shocked looks on their faces. I continued to walk inside looking around. I saw that there was only one flight to London and it didn't go for another ten minutes. I asked one of the guides if any other planes for London were headed out today. She said that there was only one flight the entire week. Lily must still be in the airport somewhere. I checked which gate she would be at before running for it. But when I got to the metal detectors I wasn't allowed through. 

"You don't understand,' I said "I have nothing metal on me,"

"I'm afraid I'll have to refrain you sir," a big man, about twice my size, tried to push me back but instead I ran.  

I heard his booming voice as I continued to run down the hall. I found Lily sitting in a corner, she was crying with her face in her hands.

"Lily! LILY!" I shouted running over to her. Once she caught sight of me she rose to her feet.

"L-Lou? No no no no no no, you can't be here. You, you can't be here. And you can walk? Since when could you walk?" her words were mixed up, fumbling all over the place. 

"I am here. And I came for you. I love you Lily" I said,

"But I can't. You, you can't. And I won't. And I don't. I don't. I don't love you. I don't." she continued to repeat I don't, as if she was trying to convince herself of the matter. And I was sure that she was. 

I took her face in mine leaning in real close, "No, I don't believe that. I don't believe that for a second. If thats so true what were the words on the phone?"

"Mistakes. They were mistakes. I should have just kept my mouth shut because if I didn't say these things you wouldn't be here, we wouldn't be here." she moved her face from my hands pushing them away,

"Lillian Brie." I began, "I love you. I love you so much. I love you. And I know you love me to."

She looked up to me with glassy looking eyes. 

"Please tell me that you love me so that everything we've done up to now will count for more than 5 days of happiness." 

"Louis, you don't understand. I can't love you. I just can't. I'm the girl from Doncaster. I'm not super model thin, I'm not barbie beautiful, I'm not einstein smart, I'm not a somebody. And you need a somebody Louis. You're Louis Tomlinson-" 

"But I'm not Louis Tomlinson without you. Only half of me is the Louis Tomlinson from world famous boy band One Direction! The other half is Louis Tomlinson, boy from Doncaster. And you are about 3/4 of that half."

She looked at me, I could see the unsurity in her eyes. She started to stutter again.

"I-I-I. I'm g-g-getting on that plane." 

"No Lily please don't..."

A security guard came up behind me and picked me up over his shoulder, carrying me away from Lily. I started kicking my legs and arms around trying to escape his grasp. 

"PUT ME DOWN!" I shouted. I watched Lily get further and further away from me as I was unwillingly pulled away.


I watched him go. He was flinging around, trying to resit. But I watched him go. Once he was round the corner I fell to the floor and started to cry. It killed me making up excuses like that. Little did he know that just before he called I received a stern call from One Directions management. 

They told me that if I wished the best for Lou I would end it for good. Apparently I was attracting alot of bad press. At the time I agreed to it since I just assumed that Lou would never remember. So when I received the call from Lou my heart tore in two. 

I recognized what I did, what I agreed to was a big mistake. 

"You're such an idiot," I mumbled into my hands, I could still hear him screaming and protesting.


I was put through a scanner and it turned out the hospital gave me some sort of knee replacement. I rolled my eyes at them. I should have been allowed through. I walked outside to find everyone looking at me expectantly. 

"She's not coming back guys, she's gone for good." I refused to meet any of their gazes, I turned my back to them. I heard them screaming my name. "LOU LOU LOU LOU!"

I ignored them until I realized it wasn't them screaming. I looked up to find Lily running towards me with all her bags in hand. She ran up to me and leaped into my arms. She wrapped her legs around my waist, nuzzling her face in my neck. I wrapped my arms around her waist kissing her on her head. Did she just run back to me? 

She took her face away from my neck and cupped my face in her small hands. She rubbed circles in my cheeks with her thumb as I drew circles in her back with my fingers. She then crashed her lips against mine passionately. It was a "I missed you" kiss which was exactly what I needed. Her lips tasted like chocolate and her skin was so smooth that it left goosebumps on my cheeks. The kiss sent electric shocks down my spine relighting every spark, every hope I had ever had. Her legs left my waist, slowly sliding to the floor. She broke the kiss, keeping my face still in her hands she spoke.

"I love you too Lou and I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry. I'm such an idiot."

She rested her head on my chest as I turned around. Everyone was holding back fits of laughter, I forgot that they were there. Lily looked up at them, she had a massive smile on her face. Cherie and Marley practically jumped on her enveloping her in a giant hug.

"I thought I would never see you again," Marley cried.

Lily laughed at her as best she could in such a situation.The guys watched on before joining in the group hug. 

We spent the ride home in each others arms. Marley was still crying but Harry was there to comfort her. Liam was driving this time round, not very safely might I add. He had one hand on the wheel and another hand in Cherie's. There were three rows in the van and Lil's and I got the whole third row. She sat in the middle chair. My arm was around her shoulders and my other hand was occupied. Our fingers interlocked as I kissed her nose and her cheeks. I kissed a sensitive spot behind her neck which made her giggle. 

"Ugh, no sound effects please," Niall begged dragging out the please. 

I rolled my eyes at him before continuing to kiss her. I moved down to kissing her neck which made her smile. She let out a calming "Mmmm" noise which drew a "Ewwwww" from Niall. She took one of her hands and started stroking the back of my neck. Her hand slowly moved round to my chin. She pulled my face away from her neck. I gave a pouty face which made her giggle a little. 

"Please tell me we can stay forever like this," she whispered into my mouth, her breath made goosebumps rise on the back of my neck. 

"In the back of a rented van kissing?" I asked jokingly, she took it in good fashion laughing it off.

"No, together." she answered blushing slightly. 

I heard a round of aww's from the front seat which made Lil's blush even harsher. 

"Maybe this will answer your question," I practically breathed. 

I kissed her softly on the mouth. Our lips moved in perfect synchronization, she smiled into the kiss moving her hands once again to rub the back of my neck. 

"Ugh. Guys do that when you're at home. In a locked, private, closed off room." Liam whined,

I broke the kiss for just a second to yell at him,

"Just watch the road and you'll be fine."

Lily tiled her head back laughing which stopped me from kissing her again. I pouted at her again, she smiled at me and kissed my bottom lip quickly before moving away from me.

"They're right you know," she answered cheekily,

"No they're not," I responded trying to kiss her again, but she moved away from me once more. I continued to pout, but it didn't move her.  

"Aww you're killing me love." I teased, 

"I don't want to disturb our friends," she said, it was her turn to pout. Her comment sent a wave of "Phew" through the van. I rolled my eyes kissing her nose and sitting in my spot. 

She lay down on my lap fiddling with my fingers. I started playing with her hair and eventually fell asleep.


The sun streamed through the window illuminating the van, bouncing off of the walls and highlighting Lou's face. I blinked a couple times, adjusting my eyes to the afternoon light. On impulse, I reached up to Lou and stroked his cheek. His eyes fluttered open as he looked around with an astonished face, obviously figuring out where he was. I smiled at his cluelessness, watching his face carefully. 

"Ow..." he groaned, arching his head back.

I instantly sat up, worried that I hurt his legs. They must have been fragile. I looked at him with obvious worry in my eyes. He smiled at me, moving all of the hair out of my eyes. He rubbed the back of my head as I continued to look at him.

"Just neck cramps love. My legs are fine." he whispered, the worry left my eyes and was replaced by confusion. He must have recognized it because he launched into an explanation about his knee replacement. 

"Does it hurt?" I asked rubbing it lightly. 

"Not when you do that,"  he mumbled looking down at me. He glanced around the van briefly before kissing me again.

"We've been doing alot of kissing lately," I mumbled into his lips

"I'm making up for lost time," he whispered as he lightly nibbling onto my bottom lip. 

I smiled cheekily, moving myself around so that I was sitting on his lap. He lightly pulled out my hair tie, being very careful to not hurt me. My hair fell down to my waist in a heaps of messy waves. He stroked the back of my hair very carefully, slowly moving his arms so that they were around my waist, pinning me to him. I moved my arms to the back of his neck so that I was clinging onto him. He started, huskily, whispering things into my mouth such as: "You're so beautiful," and "Stay with me." I simply whispered back to him, "Always."

I felt his tongue on my lips, asking for entrance. I allowed him in gladly, his tongue explored my mouth. He tasted of mint and chocolate, it was so foreign but so familiar at the same time. His mouth left mine and moved down to behind my neck. He found a particularly sensitive spot which made a noise erupt from the back of my throat when he started to lightly nibble and suck. I could tell that it would leave a hickey later, but I didn't mind. It left a mark on me, signifying that I was his.

He rubbed his hand on my waist lightly tugging at the top of my pants. 

"No Lou, not now," I giggled as he nipped at the side of my neck.

"Why not?" he asked moving away from me, I slid off of him looking down to the floor. I thought about my answer carefully, trying to be careful to not embarrass myself or offend him. 

"I want my first time to be special. Not in the shower, not in the back of a rented out van. And if my first time is with you, it being special means even more."

I turned around to see him looking directly at me, I looked into his blue eyes getting completely lost in them. I took my right hand and gripped the back of his head, moving it against mine so that our foreheads were against each other. 

"I love you..." I cooed, he laughed at my tone and sung it back.

"I love you too." he poked my nose with his finger and got out of the car. 

When we were little, poking each others noses was somewhat of a tradition. Whenever we made a promise to each other, instead of making a pinky promise we poked each others noses. His gesture meant alot to me, more than words. 

I followed him inside where he was being completely mobbed by the guys. His head was under Liam's arm and his body was being supported by the other boys arms.

"Oh hey Lil's," he choked out giving me a little wave, 

"What are you doing?" I asked walking over. Cherie and Marley were cracking up using a wall for support. 

"Nothing!" Niall exclaimed,

"I'm just hanging," Louis responded very nonchalantly, 

"This is how we lads bond!" Zayn said, "Sucks that Louis here isn't ticklish, we would have so much more fun."

"Louis isn't ticklish?" I said suggestively, Lou gave me a death stare. 

"Don't you dare!" he said warning me with his voice and his eyes.

The boys all looked at me expectantly, obviously waiting for an answer. I paced up and down the room a couple of time before finally buckling.

"Try behind his ear," I said sitting down and pulling out my phone. Liam poked behind his ear which sent Lou into a fit of laughter. I recorded the whole thing laughing along with the boys. 

Once Lou's torture was done he came over to me and attacked me with tickles.

"No!" I screamed, "Lou! Stop it! Stop!" 

He stopped laughing at me and helped me up. 

"What's that thing on your neck Lily?" Harry said with a hint of slyness to your voice.

I covered it up with my hand trying to conjure up some sort of excuse in my mind. 

"It's none of your business," I replied,

"Aw don't be such a pervert Harry," Louis moaned rolling his eyes, "Go makeout with Marley or something,"

Marley starting blushing furiously, she rubbed the back of her neck and wouldn't meet anyones gaze. 

"Aw, you're so adorable!" Harry said walking over to her and wrapping his arms around her, "Don't listen to the big mean Boo Bear." 

Cherie walked over to Liam and jumped on his back. She whispered something into his ear and he carried her off somewhere.

"Well color me intrigued," Niall said walking over to the cupboard and taking out a pack of chocolate cookies. Lou gave him a warning look before I stormed over to him snatching them out of his hands.

"Mine." I said pointing at him, "No touchy."

I opened the packet to only find one left. I rolled my eyes handing them back to him.

"Thankgod I have 3 other packets," I moaned,

"About that..." he began. I didn't even give him a chance to answer before I opened the cupboard to find no packets of cookies. I gave him a look which obviously terrified him judging by the expression on his face. Thankgod Louis picked me up and swept me away before I did anything I would regret. As we excited the kitchen I pointed to Niall and said,

"I will come for you."

Everyone started to laugh as Lou carried me up the stairs and into our bedroom. He plonked me on the bed and I looked up at him with a pouty face.

"Just get a swim suit on," he moaned,

"Well thats a little forward," I responded crossing my arms,

"You are so cute when you're grumpy," he chuckled grabbing one of my one pieces from the wardrobe.

"A one piece Lou? C'mon give me some credit here," I said holding it up.

I threw it back into the closet and took out a yellow bikini with white polka dots. I shooed him out of the room as I got changed into my bikini. I heard murmuring downstairs and then a whole bunch of heavy footsteps. I then heard a series of splashes signifying that everyone else was in the pool already. I ran down the stairs and yelled

"CANNONBALL" before jumping into the pool. I successfully splashed everyone, including Louis who was sitting on a poolside chair. His shirt was off and he was wearing a pair of Raybans. I looked over to him curiously, he responded by pointing to his leg. I immediately understood and didn't question the subject any further. 

We all splashed around in the pool until it was dark. Once it was dark we ordered pizza, which came in under five minutes, and we all decided to play truth and dare. 

"I'm going first, I am the youngest." Harry said, "For I am only 19."

He looked around, squinting his eyes. He then pointed to Liam.

"Truth or Dare?"

"Always dare!" he said, "Don't ever doubt that!"

"I dare you to snog Cherie!" 

Liam blushed as he looked down to the floor. He was very shy about the matter but Cherie thought otherwise. She grabbed Liams face and plastered a kiss on his lips. They then went into a full blown make out session. This was met with rounds of "Oohs" and countless amounts of laughter. Cherie broke the kiss sitting back in her place. She looked very satisfied but Liam on the other hand had turned as red as a tomato. 

We played a little while longer. Harry had to snog Marley. I had to snog Lou. Niall had to eat a banana dipped in ketchup. Zayn had to jump into the pool fully clothed. Many more ridiculous things happened and I was surprised that noone alerted the cops for domestic disturbance or excessive noise.  

When the night was over I had a shower and flopped into bed. Lou and I decided to share his mothers bed. Liam and Cherie set up sleeping quarters in the area above Lou and I's room so that they could share. Marley and Harry shared the double bed in the guest room and Niall and Zayn used the girls bedroom. 

"Goodnight Lou..." I mumbled as I started to drift off. I was encased in his arms and my face was nuzzled into his chest. He had his chin on the top of my head and his arms wrapped firmly around my body. He kissed me on the forehead before laying his head down on the pillow and whispering.

"Goodnight love," 

And with that, I was asleep.
