Take Me Home

Rachel has always been alone in life. She doesn't fit in at her school and no one shares the same passion as our little American, a love for music. But when she meets Niall, Zayn, Harry, Liam and Louis, everything changes. This is a story of love, heartbreak and how far you are willing to travel to be with the one you love...


8. Roots Before Branches


.:~Rachel’s P.O.V~:.


   There they were, the five of them just walking around. Alexis wasn’t there, but Louis was, so I could tell them all. It was the end of the day, so if they couldn’t go, I would never see them again.


I ran up to them. I can’t cry. Not right now.

“Hey guys!” I said trying to sound as happy as possible

“Hello Rachel.” Louis replied.

“I was wondering if you wanted to go to Samson’s? It’s that restaurant down on 8th street. They are doing a karaoke night, and you guys have really come along with your song so if you bring a track, you can show people what you think. I’m bringing one of my songs. So you up to it?”

“Yea” Zayn said

“I’d love to” Niall replied excitedly

“Sounds like fun.” Harry said

“Sure. I have a great idea for a song already” Liam said

“Louis?” I asked. He had been looking at the floor the whole time.

“Um I think I have plans with Alexis, but I will double check.”


Okay. Great. I’m never gonna see Louis again. Oh well I guess I’ll be able to get over him easier.


“That’s okay.” I turned to the rest of the guys “So I’ll see you at 8?”

“Okay” Harry said


.:~Louis’s P.O.V~:.


I have to go find Alexis and cancel our plans. I feel Rachel really wanted us all there. She looked so upset when she walked away. There’s Alexis. I have to talk to her

“Hey babe” She said sweetly and lightly kissed me.

“Hey, look I have to talk to you about tonight.”

“You mean our 6 month anniversary date tonight?”
Oh. Shit. I totally forgot. I can’t ditch her tonight. Especially for Rachel.

“Yea. I thought we could hang out just at my place, make it nice and simple”

“Sounds good, I’ll see you at 7:45.”





“You sure you don’t want to come?” Liam asked… for the 100th time.

“Yea. It’s our 6-month anniversary. I can’t ditch Alexis.”

“Okay. See you later then”


.:~Rachel’s P.O.V.~:.


Here they come. Tonight we will have fun. I will tell them afterwards.

“Hey guys!!!” I yelled, waving them over.

“hey love” Niall said kissing me on the cheek

We all sat down and just hung out. I missed Louis and wished he were here. I’m never gonna see him again.

People sang, some originals, some re-written, some talented, other stunk.

We laughed like crazy and had so much fun. I even forgot I was sad sometimes.


It was the guys’ turn. They went up to the stand and handed a CD to the DJ. Then Zayn tapped on the microphone and spoke.

“This is dedicated to our friend Rachel. Rachel you are amazing and we don’t know what we would do without you.” He smiled.

That’s when I felt the tears start in my eyes.

Then Liam started to sing:
“Your insecure, don’t know what for. You turn heads when you walk through the door...”

When they got to the chorus, I had to do everything I could not to cry.

“Rachey you light up our world like nobody else. The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed but when you smile at the ground it ain’t hard to tell you don’t know-o-o, you don’t know you’re beautiful”

And when Harry’s solo came, I felt like I would burst as he walked up to me with the microphone and sand

“Rachel, you light up our world like nobody else the way that you flip your hair gets us overwhelmed and when you smile at the ground it ain’t hard to tell…” and then all the guy’s joined in “you don’t know you’re beautiful”.


When it was finished. It was my turn. I had happy tears in my eyes.

I handed the DJ my song.


“So many things to do and say but I can't seem to find my way but I wanna know how. I know I'm meant for something else but first I gotta find myself but I don't know how

Oh, why do I reach for the stars, when I don't have wings to carry me that far?

I gotta have roots before branches to know who I am before I know who I wanna be and faith to take chances to live like I see. A place in this world for me”

Shit. I’m crying.

I came to the bridge of the song:

“Whatever comes I know how to take it. Learn to be strong I won't have to fake it.

Oh, you're understandin' the wind can come and do its best. Blow me north, and south, east and west but I'll still be standing… I'll be standing. If I have roots before branches to know who I am before I know who I'm gonna be and faith to take chances to live like I see. A place in this world… for me”

And I ran out crying. It was time to fess up.
