12. Chapter Nine

Nialls POV

Lying..I hate it. So, so, so much. I can't believe Simons making us lie...I thought we were supposed to be real! "Keep no secrets!" What happened to that? I know that this is a bit to swallow...but still it meant so much to all of us...I felt disgusted about it honestly. I wanted our fans to like us...and nobody likes a liar.

I don't want to think about it so I walk upstairs and decide to go to sleep. Maybe that will get my mind off of things...I lay down and as always my mind drifts back to that day in the kitchen....

"No, I look prettiest doing nothing," she joked, smiling at me. I looked at her and couldn't help but say, "I beg to differ. I did...I begged to differ. She looked beautiful in anything she did. I saw her blush, "Shall we start making the plain popcorn?" She asked quickly changing the subject. I agreed, and she poured the kernels in. I watched her as she analyzed every single kernel pop. She saw something nobody else did. I hear a chuckle and look at her beautiful face. "Are you laughing at me?" I joke and she shakes her head. "No, I just think popcorns beautiful." I smile and chuckle a bit, "How so?" I question. "Well each little kernel kernel sits there for a few milliseconds, then suddenly it pops. Now, it's this little piece of fluffy white popcorn. It transforms and I think it's beautiful," she said with a lot of thought. It was in that moment that I knew I loved her for more than her looks and kindness..I loved her for how beautiful she was, inside and out.

With that thought, I start to fall asleep, and start to wonder what Libby thought of all of this....


Zayn's POV

Lies. Lies. Lies. Our lives are one big lie..a lie that the chance at fame is feeding into..I hated it. I liked having a private life, but pretending it never happened was going to hurt. Being forced to forget it...that was going to hurt worse. I didn't want to forget Libby...I love her..I sigh and walk upstairs at the house. I really do need sleep.
Lots of it. This wasnt going away anytime soon...and this time, I had to face it.

Liam's POV

"Come on Li Li, lets go," Lou said making me move. I didn't want to move though. I was still numb from seeing Eleanor..I can't believe my luck..."Liam, come on. It's okay, we'll talk about it. Just get to your car," Lou tried to persuade me but all I hear is Liv laughing. All I see is her smile..."Thats it," Lou says and before I know it I'm flung over his shoulder and he's carrying me to my car. "Louis! Put me down!" I yell.
He completely ignored me and threw me in the car. "Buckle up Liam," he ordered me. I silently obeyed and looked out the window. "Lets talk about this, okay?" Louis said pulling away from the Starbucks. "I don't want to,I mutter angrily. "Liam, yes you do. You're just mad I made you move," Lou said with a sigh. It was true I was just angry with him. Very angry with him.
"Alright, lets get this straight Li Li. I'm one of your best mates and no matter how mad you get at me, I'm gonna keep bothering you," Louis tries to joke, but obviously I wasn't in the mood. After a few minutes he just pulled over and looked at me. "Wow, you really did change. The Liam I know isn't this selfish. He wouldn't let a personal problem get in the way of everyone else like you are now. He try his bet to say strong and get over it. Liam, you need to face the facts that being depressed isn't going to change things and it's not what she would have wanted," Louis practically yelled at me.
The words stung, like a slap in the face. This isn't what she wanted either, being forgotten and pushed in the corner for fame. Im sorry that practically everything brings me back to that! That I still want to be dead! That I'm not good enough for this group! Why am I even apologizing though? Louis's being the prick right now...
"Oh really? Because the Louis I know wouldn't use his friends public emotional breakdown to pick up girls!" I yelled back. "You know what Liam you're re-," he started angrily then his expression softened. "I'm sorry, that really was wrong. But you don't understand. I saw her as soon as I like her," Louis explained.
He said I didn't understand, but I did. I really did. That happened to me two and half years ago...right when Liv literally walked right into my life....


I felt a small figure walk into me and fall backwards. I looked down at the shy figure hiding her face embarrassed. As soon as she looked up I asked, "Are you okay?" The girl stared at me and I realized how lovely she was...auburn hair, big green eyes, small pink lips, and fair skin. She seemed to be what perfection really was. She stared for a few more seconds and in those few seconds, something hit me. A feeling I've never felt before: love. Not regular love...love at first sight. I didn't know it was that at the time, but I do now. It was the best feeling in the world.

"Whatever Lou. I could care less, just take me home. I want to go to bed," I said harshly. "Whatever Liam," Louis said pulling away towards the X-Factor house. The rest of the drive was silent, and the memory of Liv coming into my life was on loop. Over and over again, my life started and ended. It was the first moment of forever and never.
The tears were building up again, but I wasn't giving Lou the satisfaction. "We're here," Lou said handing me my keys. I didn't even know we took my car...I took the keys from his hands and started to get out. As I was getting out I heard Lou say from behind me, "You know you have changed, but you can always go back. Back to the old Liam. You can have this if you're willing to everyone help you."

I knew he was right. I could change and I could have this if I let people help me. But "old Liam" seemed so far away....too far out of reach. As I walked up to the house, I started to feel the tears fall. I wasn't ready for this, and the old me wasn't making an appearance anytime soon...I wanted out, but this time I couldn't run, and suicide wasnt an option...I had to stay and be strong. Why did that seem so impossible? Oh yeah, because it was..."Oh Liv, I wish you were here..." I silently prayed before drifting off into a restless sleep.
