Breaking Free

Ever felt smothered by everyone else's idea of what your life should be like? Have you ever just wanted to say "Stop! It's my life!" to those closest to you? We all have, haven't we? I bet you were too afraid to do it though. So you kept your mouth shut, and did exactly what you always told yourself you would never do: you followed the rules set by people who don't really know you, and let THEM control your life. But what could happen if you finally just said no? If you decided to follow your own dream? Would something amazing happen? Would you fall in love? Would you find what you've been looking for your whole life? What could happen if you just...broke free?


16. More Twitter

The seven hour long flight from JFK to Heathrow was only about one hour in when Belle started to get bored. She had been staring out the window the whole time, spacing out and thinking about all sorts of things: Alan, singing, her parents, the media, and especially Louis. She couldn't help but steal a few glances at him, but it seemed as though he was oblivious. He and the other boys were all immersed in their phones. She didn't know what the other four were up to but Louis was playing Temple Run last time she had checked, but that had been about fifteen minutes ago.

Meanwhile, Louis was pretending not to notice Sophie noticing him. Every time she would roll her head over to look at him, it took every ounce of his willpower not to look into her deep brown eyes and just get lost in them. She was wearing khacki shorts that didn't even reach mid thigh, and a white half sleeve V-neck shirt. Her tan legs were crossed at the knee and he desperately wanted to reach over and put his hand on them, but he couldn't do that. For one, it would make Belle extremely uncomfortable. For two, management had clearly stated that any outside of work fraternizing was against the rules. In the back of Louis' mind though, he couldn't help but think, 'Since when do I ever actually listen to management?'

Belle sighed dramatically suddenly, obviously wanting Louis to say something about it. He pursed his lips to stifle a chuckle and kept scrolling through his Twitter mentions. He wasn't Tweeting anybody back at the moment, none of the fans even knew he was online. He just liked reading through them every now and then.

Belle rolled her head over and looked at Louis. He pretended that he didn't notice though. "Louis?" She asked.

"Yes love?" He responded nonchalantly, not looking up from his phone in an attempt to keep teasing her.

"I'm bored!" She whined.

Finally Louis couldn't take it anymore and he looked to his right at Belle. Her arms were crossed and she was tilting her head down at him and pouting her bottom lip out. Her long wavy brown hair was thrown over her left shoulder and her bangs were in front of her face. She looked so damn cute he couldn't stand it.

Louis chuckled and said, "Belle it's only been half an hour."

Belle huffed again. "I know, but there's nothing to do on this stupid flight!"

"You've got your phone, go on Twitter or something. That's what we all do!"

Belle scrunched her face up at him. "Why? It's just another social networking sight, geez."

Louis laughed. "Yeah but it's how we keep in touch with the fans."

"Well I don't have any fans, you guys do."

"You don't have any fans?" Louis asked sarcastically. "Check again, love."

Belle rolled her eyes at him but pulled her phone out anyways. As soon as she logged onto Twitter her jaw dropped. She had three hundred thousand followers!

"What the...?" She started to say, and Louis just laughed. She looked up at him and said, "This is crazy!"

"Trust me love, we know."

"Huh." Belle said mostly to herself, looking away from him and back down at her phone.

Louis couldn't pull his own eyes away from her though. God, she was beautiful! She wasn't wearing much makeup, and her hair was obviously down in its own natural waves, yet she was absolutely stunning.

Suddenly Belle laughed and Louis was snapped out of his trance. "Hey listen to what this one girl tweeted me, 'Hey @SilverBelles22 , if you upload a picture of you and @Louis_Tomlinson I'll twerk in the middle of a busy street'"

Belle started laughing even more and Louis just smiled. Her laugh was beautiful.

"Well let's give the people what they want!" He said, pulling up the front facing camera on his iPhone.

"Wait what?" Belle asked, shoving his phone holding hand away and wiping the smile off of her face. "I can't take a picture right now!"

"And why not?" Louis asked.

"Because I--" Belle cut herself off and Louis cocked his head at her.

"Because you what? You look beautiful, and I want to take a picture! C'mon, the fans will love it!"

Belle looked up at Louis and chewed her bottom lip in deep thought while he just smiled at her. Finally, after what seemed like forever, Belle said, "Fine, we'll take some pictures."

"Sweet!" Louis shouted, pulling the phone back in front of them again

They took about ten or fifteen pictures on Louis' phone, their expressions ranging from silly faces, tongues sticking out, smiling, making a scary face, and more.

"Okay now let's do some on my phone," Belle said, and they repeated the act with Belle's camera.

Once they had taken about ten more pictures, Belle couldn't go on because she was laughing so hard. Louis' facial expressions were priceless, and she was cracking up, as was Louis.

"Well go on, post your favorite!" Louis finally said, and Belle's laughter died down as she scrolled through the pictures.

They were all adorable, and she didn't even look half bad. But the very last one they had taken made Belle's breath catch in her throat. It was when she had first started laughing, and she didn't even realize she had clicked the touchscreen button to take the picture. Belle's hand was on it's way up to cover her mouth so she wouldn't snort and her eyes were scrunched up from the giggles. Louis was what made the picture special though. He was smiling sincerely, but he wasn't looking at the camera, he was looking down at Belle. His blue eyes were sparkling and he seemed to be looking at her with...adoration, perhaps?

Belle couldn't help but blush at the sweet picture and she knew that was the picture she was going to upload for the fans. She pulled up her Twitter app and attached the photo, adding the caption,

@SilverBelles22: Taking crazy pictures with @Louis_Tomlinson got me in a giggling fit! This boy is one of my favs :)

She smiled as she hit the Tweet button and watched the favorites, retweets, and mentions roll in. After just a minute, she saw that Louis had replied. She rolled her eyes and turned to him with an amused expression, "Louis I'm right here beside you."

"I know that, but the fans love it when we have Twitter conversations!"

Belle just chuckled and opened his reply.

@Louis_Tomlinson: @SilverBelles22 you're cute when you giggle! this flight might not be so bad after all ;)

Belle couldn't help but smile and Louis smirked in satisfaction. She immediately favorited and retweeted it. Soon enough though, she got a notification that another verified account had replied as well. Within minutes, a full on Twitter conversation between her and the boys had begun.

@zaynmalik: @SilverBelles22 @Louis_Tomlinson what the heck guys, taking pics without us?? @Real_Liam_Payne @NiallOfficial @Harry_Styles

@SilverBelles22: @zaynmalik well if you boys would come and join us and quit being boring party poopers, we might include you! ;)@NiallOfficial @Real_Liam_Payne @Harry_Styles

@Real_Liam_Payne: I'm trying to sleeeeeeep and you guys are keeping me awake! #LetLiamSleep @SilverBelles22 @Louis_Tomlinson

@NiallOfficial: @Real_Liam_Payne nooo! #KeepLiamAwake @SilverBelles22 I thought I was ur fav!

@SilverBelles22: I don't know @NiallOfficial , @Louis_Tomlinson might be taking ur spot ;)

"No!" Belle suddenly heard Niall shout from his seat two rows up with Zayn, and when she looked up, the crazy Irishman was crawling over his seat!

"Niall!" She hissed, "What are you doing?!"

Niall just grinned though, sitting down in the seat right in front of her and looking over the headrest to her and Louis. His grin disappeared and a pout replaced it. "You were kidding right, I'm your favorite not Louis?"

"Well I--"

"No way!" Louis interrupted, "We've taken selfies together, that obviously means I'm her favorite." He said matter-of-factly.

Belle scoffed. "Louis that doesn't mean--"

"You be quiet Tomlinson!" Belle was cut off once again, this time by Niall. "You're just jealous because I'm her favorite and you're not!"

The two friends continued to banter back and forth and Belle decided to just look on and laugh. After a few minutes though her phone pinged and she had a Twitter notification that someone she followed had tweeted her. It was probably just another one from the boys, but she pulled it up anyways.

@BigAl22: @SilverBelles22 I miss you. Want to talk about what you asked me on Skype soon...I love you, have a safe flight. xx

So Alan wanted to talk with her again, and obviously it was about his feelings for her.

Wonderful. Just wonderful.
