Chapter 35

Tory’s POV

I was sitting on my couch watching TV. I was wearing, when my phone vibrated. I opened the text I got and it was from Zayn. “Hey Tory! How’ve you been? Tonight we are having dinner, the boys, Eleanor, you and I. its at 8 and at Giovanni’s on St. Martin’s Lane.” I didn’t really want to go to this dinner thing, what was the occasion? As I was about to text him back there was a knock at the door. I got up and opened the door it was Eleanor.

“Hey, help me pick out an outfit for dinner tonight.” She said walking into my apartment.

“Do I need to go? I’m really not in the mood.” I said.

“Yes, yes you have to.”

“Why?” I whined a little.

“Just help me please.”

“Fine.” I walked over to her she was at the couch.

I texted Zayn back while I was on my way upstairs. “Sounds good, I guess. I don’t really have a choice Eleanor is making me go. Haha see you later!” We had two hours until dinner, she was freaking out already. We picked out her outfit, and then she took a shower. While she was showering I picked out my outfit. When she was finished, I showered and she did her hair and makeup. After I was done, I did my hair and makeup. We had a half an hour until it was 8 so we got dressed and then got in my car to go to the restaurant. She was wearing this, I was wearing this,

“Tory.” Eleanor started looking at me.

“Yeah?” I answered.

“I told Liam what happened the day you came back. I hope it’s okay with you.”

As she said that we arrived at the restaurant and the valets opened our doors before I could respond. We thanked them and then walked towards the door closing the gap between us also. Again I was interrupted before I could tell Eleanor it was okay and greatly appreciated. It was the boys they had just arrived also. We all walked inside as a big group. Liam flashed a smile at me and I returned one, bigger then his. When we were told to wait a couple of minutes we all said our hellos. I first said hi to Harry who was closest, then Niall, then Zayn, and then Louis. I was actually going to go over to Liam and say hi when Louis came and said hi to me. I gave Louis a smile after our extremely awkward hug and continued towards Liam.

“Hi,” I said with a huge smile.

“Hey Tory. How’ve you been?” He asked and I knew what he meant by that.

“Good, I guess, I know Eleanor told you. She told me she told you in the car but I haven’t had the chance to thank her.”

Before he could respond I moved closer and gave him a massive hug. It felt so right because he hugged back even though we both knew everyone was watching us. Especially Louis, so I closed my eyes to try and focus on us and only us at the moment.

“Sorry to interrupt you two but we can go to our table.” Eleanor said sweetly.

She rubbed my back as we walked towards the table. I guess she could tell how much that hug means to me. When we go to the table we saw that there were names in front of each seat. When I realized whom I was sitting next to I was extremely happy. I had to keep it to myself a little bit, but I had a feeling that my face had light up. I looked at Eleanor who was looking at me and we just smiled. I was placed next to Liam, if you couldn’t already guess. Zayn was next to him with Louis across him. Eleanor was next to Louis and Niall was next to her. Harry was in between Louis and Zayn at the head of the table. While we were all looking at the menus Liam was holding my hand on his lap. When the waiter came I pulled my hand back quickly and everyone looked at me.

“Sorry, chills.” I lied.

Eleanor looked at me and mouthed ‘sure’, all I could do was laugh. She then laughed at me and everyone was staring at the two of us. The waiter took our orders and then everyone engaged in their own conversations.

“Can you and I go talk?” Liam whispered.

I nodded and we got up from the table.

“Where are you two going? Louis said emphasizing the word two.

“We need to go talk about this situation. You know we still have to process this.” I said softly.

“Fine.” He said raising an eyebrow.

It wasn’t a complete lie; just we weren’t talking about the “break up.” We walked to a part of the restaurant where there wasn’t a lot of people.

“Why didn’t you tell me where all of the, you knows, were?” Liam started.

“I did these ones.” I said looking down.

He put his hands on my face and lifted my face up so I was looking at him.


“I don’t know.”

“You know you have to be careful about what you do. Anyone can see and then make an article and then, who knows what.”

“I know, I am sorry.” I said.

I couldn’t help it; I had to hug him so I did. He just hugged me back and whispered caring words and phrases. After I pulled myself together a little bit, I kissed him. After we both smiled and then wiped them away and went back to the table. We sat down Louis gave me a death stare and then one to Liam. Eleanor smiled at me with a look like ‘um, what happened?’ We all ordered and everyone started his or her own conversations. Then Zayn started a conversation about the brits that everyone was included in. We finished dinner and then ordered dessert. After we were all done, we all went to our own apartments. Well except for Harry, Louis and Eleanor who were all staying in the same apartment. After I got back from dinner I went on twitter and tumblr for a bit. I had some hate on twitter because I supposedly broke up with Liam. Someone made a trending topic about the break up, #LiamDeservesBetterThanTory. It hurt a little but I wasn’t going to let it get to me. “I didn’t break up with Liam, he didn’t break up with me. We decided to a break.” I tweeted, it felt good letting them know but it also hurt not telling them the full story. Liam tweeted also, “Trending topic on a story that isn’t true. She didn’t break up w/ me; I didn’t break up with her. Mutual.” Zayn did too, “Liam and Tory aren’t broken up, just taking a break. No hate to anyone please :) x.” Niall and Harry also tweeted; the only one who didn’t was Louis. Which started a whole new thing. “@Tory_Tomlinson, Why didn’t Louis also say what happened between you and Liam?” Someone tweeted to me, how was I supposed to respond? I didn’t respond which made me wonder did Louis even feel a little bit guilty? I went to sleep with that thought.


Chapter 36

Tory’s POV

When I woke up at around nine, I put this on and went down stairs. I grabbed my phone and went to Starbucks for some coffee. When I got back I ate my breakfast and drank my coffee while watching TV and sitting on the couch, I was planning on just doing nothing by myself in my apartment for the day. Fifteen minutes after I finished my breakfast, the doorbell rung.

“Coming.” I said turning the volume on the TV down.

I opened the door; I was really surprised to see who it was.

“Hey baby! Go get changed,” My mom asked.

“Um, do I have choice? I kind of wanted a relaxing day.” I replied.

“No, get changed.” She said letting herself in my apartment.

“Okay, give me like five minutes.” I said.  “If you are hungry, there’s food in the fridge and cabinets.”

“Thank you, but I ate before I came here.”

 I went upstairs and changed into this, When I was ready I went down to the living room, my mom was sitting on the couch reading a seventeen magazine.

“Cute outfit.” She complimented.

“Thank you, so what did you have in mind for today?” I asked.

“How about we go to the mall?” She suggested.

“Sure. Do you want to take my car?”

“Yeah, I have no idea where anything is in this city.” She joked as we left my apartment.

The car ride to the mall was just the two of us catching up. I only text her every now and then, I’m not so consistent with the texts. When we got to the mall we parked and decided to get our nails done. Since I kind of forgot what I did a couple days ago when I agreed to getting our nails done tried getting out of it. That didn’t work to well.

“Can I just get a pedicure please?” I said to the lady.

“No, we are getting manicures and pedicures Tory.” My mom said to me then turned to the lady. “Me and my daughter are both getting manicures and pedicures.”

We were taken to the pedicure section of the nail salon first. My mom and I talked while flipping through magazines. After our pedicures were done, I hesitated getting up and sitting next to my mom for my manicure.

“Tory, really?” My mom said when the lady rolled up my sleeve.

I didn’t reply.

“Oh my god.” The woman said rubbing my arms.

She put the hot towel on carefully but it still hurt like hell. I had to hide the pain. I did jump back a little but not so much that everyone could tell. My mom and I didn’t talk while we were getting our nails done after she saw my scars. It was somewhat awkward between the two of us for the rest of the time in the salon. When we were done our nails looked like this, 

“How about we go get some coffee or something?” My mom asked as we were leaving the nail salon.

“Okay, sure.”

We ordered our coffees, I thought we would just get our coffees and then leave but I was wrong.

“Tory, is everything okay? Well, like besides the scars.” 

“Yeah, I guess.” I lied.

“Even with Louis?”

“Yeah, everything is fine.” I lied again.

I felt bad, but I didn’t want to tell my mom everything.

“You probably don’t want to talk about this but why did Liam say he was single?”

I explained to her that we were just taking a break. I did not tell her about Louis making us break up or falling off the bed. I definitely did not mention going to the cabin for a few days.

“Okay, can you explain something else to me?” She asked reaching in her bag.

“Yeah.” I replied taking another sip of my coffee.

She pulled out a magazine but it was flipped over so the cover was facing downwards. She moved it closer to me so I took it from her. I flipped it over and my world stopped. The title was, ‘Are Liam and Tory really over?’ The picture was Liam and I kissing last night at the dinner. Not at the table obviously, but when we were talking.

“Oh, shit.” I said softly.

“What?” My mom asked.

“Nothing, sorry.” I said.

I didn’t think she heard what I said.

“Nothing? Tory, what is going on? Are you and Liam really broken up? I want you to trust me, I am here for you and I want you to know that. Not just know it but also prove to me that you understand it.” She said seriously.

“First, Louis is going to kill me, and Liam. Second, I understand I really do. It’s just that I am not good with the whole talking to people thing. We are broken up, but we aren’t.”

“What does that even mean Tory?” She asked confused.

“To the world we are broken up. To you, him and I we aren’t.”

“Why do you need to be broken up to the world? Why can’t you continue dating him like how you were?”

I didn’t really want to bring Louis into this whole thing. I mean, he was in it but our mom didn’t need to know. This whole thing wouldn’t make sense if I didn’t bring him up, but I am way to far into the story that I can’t just say never mind.

“Last week or something, Liam and I were in my room. He was tickling me, I was trying to get out of his reach so he would stop.” I started; I took a deep breath and looked up at my mom.

“And?” She encouraged.

“I fell off the bed and landed on my leg. It wasn’t his fault but Louis was in the doorway when I fell.”

“Let me guess, Louis thought it would be a good idea for the two of you to stop seeing each other?” She said before I could continue. 

“Mhm.” I said while nodding, she was spot on.

“Tory, you really like Liam. He really likes you; you shouldn’t let your brother come between that. I know that they are nominated for a brit. The brits are next week; just tell Louis that you two are going to go with him. Well only if it is okay with him, otherwise don’t.”

“Okay, will you come with me to tell Louis if Liam says yes to taking me?”

“Of course I will baby. You are my little girl and what Louis did was not right in any way. He also had no right to do this.”

My mom and I left smiling and we went to one more store then headed to my apartment. I texted Liam in the car and he said that he would bring me as his date to the brits. He did ask how I would tell Louis and I told him that my mom was going to be there when I told him. My mom called Louis and told him to meet us at my apartment.  


Chapter 37

Louis’s POV

When my mom called me to meet her and Tory at Tory’s apartment I was a little bit worried. Then again I was excited because we never usually have the three of us together. When I got to her apartment they just pulled in to the parking lot. When our mom got out of the car I ran and gave her a hug. She hugged back, but it felt like there was something different than the last time we hugged. I didn’t make a big deal of it. I didn’t want my mom to pick up the fact that Tory and I haven’t been getting along lately so I gave Tory a hug, but she didn’t hug back.

“Just hug me back so mom doesn’t pick up this fight thing that’s been going on between us.” I whispered in her ear.

“She already knows.” She said but not in a whisper and pulled away.

“Oh.” I replied looking down.

“Okay you two let’s go up to her apartment.” Our mom, Jay suggested.

We all headed to the elevator, Tory pressed the button. All I could think of is why Tory would tell mom, she never talks to her. I don’t understand but maybe I will find out. When we got to her apartment she unlocked the door and we all sat down at the table.”

“Why did you come mom? Not to be rude or anything I am just confused.” I started.

“Something didn’t seem right and I thought that I should find out. Tory wouldn’t answer my texts if she were okay. I had to find out and the only way I could was if I came here.”

“Oh okay, so what did you want to talk about?” I asked.

“You, Tory and Liam.”

“Okay, so?”

“You did not have any right to say that they can’t date each other. Were you unable to see how happy your sister was compared to now?” Jay started.

She continued with saying that I should not be controlling Tory’s relationships and a lot of other things.

“Mom, you are never around and you can’t just pop in every now and then.” I said angrily.

She can’t just take apart in this like she has always been apart of it. Tory was silent the entire time.

“Okay, whatever. I’ll see you soon, maybe.” I said.

After I stormed out I went to Liam’s apartment. This was probably a stupid idea but I don’t care. I knocked on the door loudly and he opened it almost immediately.

“Hey Louis?” He said as I slammed the door shut.

“You can’t date Tory!” I shouted.

“Why not?”

“Because I said so.” I snapped at him.

“You may be able to control Tory's life but not mine, and if I want to date Tory I can. “ he snapped back. “I’ll see you tonight I guess. You can leave now.”

“Ugh.” I said and left like he said.


Day of the Brits

Eleanor’s POV

Tonight was the night of the brits! The boys were nominated for British Single, which was a huge deal. Especially since they were up against people like Adele and other really amazing artists. Tory and I were going to get ready together, since we had gone shopping together. I left my outfit at her apartment so Louis wouldn’t see it. When I was about to knock on her door, it opened and I saw Jay. I’m guessing she stayed the night at Tory’s because she was here yesterday also, Louis told me.

“Hey, how are you?” She asked giving me a hug.

“Great, and you?” I asked returning a hug also.

“Good, good. You two are getting ready for the big night together?”

“Yeah. We didn’t want the boys to see us until we got there. By boys I mean Louis and Liam, well I’m not so sure about Liam anymore.”

“No, and Liam. They straightened everything out between the two of them. Just Louis on the other hand isn’t so thrilled.”

“They’ll figure it out soon, I hope.” I said.

“Well, have fun and I’ll see you soon.” She said giving me another hug.

“Bye, it was great seeing you.” I said as I walked towards the door.

“Well you and my mom seem to get along.” Tory said closing the door behind me.

“Yeah, I guess. She is so sweet.” I replied getting a drink of water.

“So it’s 3:30 and we have to be there at 8 so, how about we take showers then make up and hair. Then we’ll get dressed.”

She took a shower first because I wanted to get something to eat. After she finished I took my shower and she set up all of the make up and hair things. She’d be doing my hair and I’d be doing hers and we would probably do our own make up. When I finished we were both wearing something comfy and simple. While we did our make up and hair we talked about Tory’s day because I asked why her mom was here. She told me how her mom saw her scars from earlier this week. When we finished hair and make up it was 7:00 and all we had to do was get changed and get there. It only takes like 10 minutes to get to the Brits, so we had a little over an hour to get ready which would be plenty. We also figured there would be traffic because it is a hectic night in London. We picked out our jewelry and Tory redid her nails so they would match better with her outfit. Earlier on I had gotten my nails done with what I was wearing in mind. After she finished doing her nails we had like 30 minutes. We got changed and we headed down stairs and we grabbed our phones, which had been charging. Tory was typing on her phone; she was either texting or tweeting.

“What are you doing that involves so much typing?” I joked.

 “Tweeting something quick. They probably think I’m dead since I haven’t been on in some time.”

“Good luck to the boys tonight! @onedirection I’m so proud of you! See you soon! Love you all xx” We took a picture before we left, I have to admit we looked great. She set it as her background and texted it to me so I could do the same. She was wearing this, I was wearing this, We got in her car and turned on the radio and Domino by Jessie J. Like we thought, there was traffic but it wasn’t the whole way only when we were a couple streets away. We got there with only a minute to spare, we got out of the car and there were smiles on our faces. I handed the valet the keys and walked over to Tory who was waiting for me on the other side of the car. There was a big black escalade in front of us and we waited for it to drive away before getting to the entrance. When the car moved we said hi to a couple of people who noticed us. A couple seconds later, we heard our names being called from behind us. It was the boys who just got here also; we turned around so we were facing them. We all had smiles on our faces, massive smiles to be exact. They all looked amazing in their tuxes. We all hugged each other, yes even Louis and Tory. My guess is they didn’t want anyone to suspect anything. We all went inside together and giant smiles were on our faces. Louis and I were holding hands Tory and Liam were also.

Liam’s POV

We saw the girls talking to someone, we couldn’t see their faces but we could tell whom it was. We called their names and they turned around. I wish I had taken a picture of Tory at that moment. She had the biggest, brightest smile on her face and it was real. She and Eleanor both looked stunning and we were all extremely lucky boys to be here with them.


Chapter 38

Liam’s POV

When we got inside it was very loud but it was welcoming at the same time. We were told to walk on the carpet so people could take pictures of us. At first it was only the boys and I, but then someone called and asked Tory and Eleanor to pose for pictures too. They were both kind of shocked and confused but they did as told. Then we were told to all get together for pictures so we did. The order was Harry, Niall, Louis, Eleanor, Zayn, Tory and then I. We took pictures for about 20 minutes then we got to the room where we’d be sitting anxiously to see if we won our first Brit or not. We were told that our table was number 74, so we all looked for it. When we found it, I pulled the chair out for Tory and Louis did the same for Eleanor. Everyone except Tory and I were drinking, but not too much. We had people come to our table and introduce themselves; there were also some people who we knew from other events. Most of the night Tory and I were holding hands and talking. The best part of the night was that the true, real smile never left her face so mine didn’t leave either. The awards were presented and every time someone won we would stand up and clap. Then came the one we were all here for, well just the boys, Eleanor, Tory and I were really here for. They were about to announce the winner of the British Single. Tinie Tempah was going to say who won this award.  

“Ready boys?” Eleanor asked.

We all nodded.

“And the winner is…” He started. “One Direction!”

We all jumped up and hugged each other. I gave Tory a kiss before I went up and Louis also gave one to Eleanor. When we headed up we gave people high fives who put their hands out for one. Tinie handed Harry the award and then moved away from the microphone so we could give our speech.

“We want to say again, a massive thank you to the fans, everything we do is for you and this is yours! So thank you so much and a massive thank you to Radio One.” Harry said first.

“Wow! We cannot believe we are stood here on this stage. I want to start off by saying this award is for the fans, we would be absolutely nowhere without them so thank you so much!” Louis said after harry.

“Obviously we’d be nobody without our team backstage, so we want to say thank you to all of them, thank you Simon, Sonny, everyone at SyCo, Kim Davidson, Emma, everyone at Modest, thank you so much Paul Higgins, all our team, thank you guys, you’re amazing. And to be on this stage is amazing, and we’re gonna be doing our arena tour, so we’re massively flattered.” I said.  

“Again, thank you so much to everyone who voted for us, our fans are absolutely incredible, this one is for you guys.“ Niall said. 

We left the stage and went to take some pictures with it and have a couple of interviews that weren’t going to be long.

“Thanks Loueh.” Zayn said after Louis handed him the award. “Hey there sexy.” He said to the award.

“He is sexy.” I joked tapping his arm playfully.

After we finished the interviews we headed back to our table to see the girls. Some woman wanted to hold the award for us, so she stuck her hand out.

“Get off!” I joked leaning away from her. “This woman is trying to steal our award!”

We all sat down in our seats when we got to the table, Tory and Eleanor were talking. They both had smiles on their faces but when we came their smiles widened and brightened. I sat down, Tory and I kissed again, she was extremely happy.

“Congratulations babe, I’m so proud of you.” She said still having that amazing smile on her face.

“Thanks love.” I said.

I looked at Louis who was staring at us. When he realized I was looking at him he gave me a death stare. The smile must have wiped off my face because Tory turned around to look and see what was happening. She turned back around to face me and gave me a look that meant “really?” I just kissed her again and looked back at Louis. The smile that she had on her face all night disappeared instantly. She got up from the table and ran towards the entrance. I called after her but she didn’t stop so I got up and ran after her. Louis followed me and everyone was looking and trying to figure out what was going on. It was raining outside and Tory was standing with her back against a wall. She was crying hysterically, you could tell even though it was raining. We ran over to her to try and get her back inside but she didn’t say anything and shook our hands off her.

“Come on babe let’s go inside.” I said.

“She can stay outside if she wants to for a little bit.” Louis disagreed.

“She can get sick, she isn’t wearing a jacket Louis.” I said.

Louis just shook his head and then we both turned back to Tory. She just looked at us shaking her head in disappointment then ran towards the street. She took her shoes off before crossing the road. Louis and I were both screaming her name and telling her to come back but she ignored us. When she was in the middle of the street she either slipped or her legs gave out. We ran towards her when she fell, she must have hit her head because she was unconscious. I felt someone’s hand on my back so I looked up and it was Paul, he must have followed us out. 

“We should probably get out of the middle of the road.” Paul said bending down to pick her up. Louis and I picked up her shoes that were in the street also. One of the valets told us he had called for an ambulance and that they were on their way. When we got to the hospital they put her in a room immediately, like last time we had to wait. Louis and I didn’t talk the entire time we were waiting. Forty-five minutes later a nurse came and told us we could go to her room. She had Dr. Perry again.

“Hey boys, so here’s the deal. Her knee disconnected, that is why she fell. She did hit her head but she’s lucky that she didn’t seriously hurt her head. Can I just ask you two something?”

“Yeah.” We both said simultaneously.

“Okay. Why did she run across the street in the first place?”

Louis and I looked at each other and then looked back at Dr. Perry. I told him what had happened. Louis told him about how they have been fighting a lot recently, since she was last here. He was speechless; the only thing he could say was oh. After a minute or two of silence he was able to find words to say.

“Well, I hope everything gets better between the three of you and I’ll check up on her in a hour or so.”

Zayn called us asking us what happened. We told him and then he said that they would all come after the Brits were over with Eleanor and Paul. We sat in silence for a couple hours, and then we started arguing again. This time it was about whose fault it was that caused this whole accident that happened tonight. Lately it seems that all we do is argue and our past days off were just stressful.

“Why don’t you two just leave?” She said.

“Tory, you’re up?” Louis and I said at the same time.

“Just go. I’m sick of the two of you fighting. It’s driving me crazy. That’s all that’s been happening. Fighting and I can’t stand it.”

“Tory.” We said at the same time again.

“Please, just leave.” She begged.

“Okay.” I said.

I headed out the door and Louis followed. When we closed the door we heard our names being called. We looked up and it was Zayn, Niall, Harry, Eleanor and Paul.

“Where are you two going?” Harry asked.

“Aren’t you going to stay with Tory?” Niall added.

“No, she wanted us to leave so that’s what we’re doing.” I said.

“I’m going to call my mom and tell her what happened.” Louis said.

Louis and Eleanor both walked away from us. The five of us followed them but we walked to the waiting room while they went outside.


Chapter 39

Jay’s POV

When Louis called me I quickly got in the car I rented and headed to the hospital. It was early in the morning it was around 7.

“Hi. What room is Tory Tomlinson in?” I asked hesitantly.

“Who are you?” The woman at the desk asked.

“I’m her mother.”

“Oh okay then, Miss Tory Tomlinson is in room 422.” She said looking at the computer.

“Thank you.” I said as I walked away.

When I got to her room I opened the door and the doctor was in there with her.

“Hi again.” I said.

“Hello, It’s a pleasure to see you again.” He said shaking my hand. “I’ll give you two a minute, I have to run and get Tory her breakfast anyway.”

“Thank you.” I said. “Now, how’d you end up in here again?”

“Well it all started after they won their Brit. Liam kissed me and Louis gave him a look and my smile disappeared. Then I got up and ran outside, it was raining and I was leaning against the wall crying. Then they came out and started fighting because Liam wanted me to go inside because I was going to get sick and Louis said that I could stay outside if I wanted to. At that point I had it so I ran into the street and then my knee disconnected and I hit my head. When I woke up they were fighting again about whose fault it was so I just told the two of them to leave.”

Dr. Perry came back with Tory’s food, she needed to eat or she might get weak. I stayed with her for the rest of the day and we just talked about random things, listened to music and watched TV. Dr. Perry and the nurses checked on her every hour or so to make sure she was doing ok or if she needed anything. While we were watching The X-Factor Tory’s phone vibrated and she jumped a little.

“Ugh.” She said as she looked at her phone.

She didn’t read it or anything she just put her phone on the cabinet.

“Who was it?” I asked.



A couple minutes later she got another text but it was from Liam, but she still didn’t look at what the text said. After then, they both kept texting and calling her like the world was ending. She ended up just turning off her phone so she wouldn’t be bothered. Then Dr. Perry came back in with her lunch. She ate it and then we continued with watching TV, talking and we found a couple magazines so we were reading them.

“Hun, it’s getting late and I want to run over to Louis’s and talk to him. Is that okay?”

“Yeah, its fine. Could you possibly bring me some clothes, my computer and charger for my phone and computer please.”

“Yeah.” I said giving her a kiss on the forehead. 

As I was leaving Dr. Perry walked in with her dinner.

“Thank you so much for everything. I am going to stop by tomorrow or something; I’m going to go visit her brother.”

“Okay, well it was a pleasure seeing you.” He replied putting the tray on her lap.

It took me ten minutes to get to Louis’s apartment. I knocked on his door and Eleanor opened it.

“Hello Eleanor, is Louis here?” I said giving her a hug.

“He just ran out to get some dinner.” She said closing the door behind me. “He’ll be here in a couple of minutes.”

“Oh, okay. Anyway, how’ve you been lately?”

“I’ve been good, thank you. What about you?”

“Yeah, a little bit stressed but otherwise I’ve been good.”

“Do you know how Tory’s doing?”

“Yeah, I’ve been with her all day. She’s doing better, she’s just annoyed that Louis and Liam can’t get along.”


Louis walked in right as she was going to say something. He was holding a brown take-out bag.

“Hey.” He said looking at the two of us.

“Hi sweetie, I just came to talk to you.” I said.

“Oh, okay.”

“It won’t be long. You will eat in like 10 minutes because I have to head over to Tory’s apartment after and get her some stuff.”

“Would you like me to give you two some privacy?” Eleanor asked.

“That would be lovely, thank you so much.” I answered.

After Eleanor left Louis sat down next to me on the couch.

“What’s going on mom?”

“Nothing sweetie, I just wanted to talk to you.”

“Oh, okay then. What’s up?”

“I know you care about Tory and you think you are doing what’s right. She is eighteen now, she doesn’t need you to make decisions for her. You need to know that I appreciate you trying to protect her but in the end you are the one hurting her. She was getting better, but you decided it was okay to tell her that she couldn’t date Liam. Which, first of all is not your place to say. Also, she was extremely happy and ever since then haven’t you realized that she isn’t as happy. She lied to you about dating him they never broke up. They pretended to, for you.”

“What’s your point mom?”

“It’s Tory’s life and I don’t need you making decisions for her because you are just hurting her. Please just let her live her life and when she calls you for your help then you step in not before.”

“Okay, I won’t. Should I go and visit her and tell her I’m sorry?”

“I think it would be better if you didn’t. Right now you and Liam, I think are just stresses in her life. Give her some time, I’ll tell her you wanted to come and apologize.”


“Well, I’m going to go now.” I said getting up.


Eleanor walked into the room.

“Eleanor, I think you should visit her tomorrow. I think it might make her feel better.”

“Okay, I will.” She responded.

“Bye you two enjoy your dinner.” I said closing the door behind me.


Chapter 40

Tory’s POV

I woke up and my mom wasn’t there but there was a bag with a letter on top of it. I got up and walked over to the bag, I picked up the letter then walked back to the bed.


I came in last night and you were a sleep. I brought your stuff; it’s all in the bag. I hope you are feeling better. Dr. Perry told me that they are letting you go home today. Anyway, I talked to Louis and he said he is sorry and he won’t try and control your life. If you ever need me text me or call me. You know you can even come visit me at home in Doncaster. Instead of going to the cabin, come home and spend some time with me. I am leaving today to go back home, but I am always here for you.

         Love you lots,      

                           Mom xx

P.S. text your boyfriend he is worried beyond compare about you. Don’t let your idiot brother’s mistake screw your relationship up. You two are adorable together and he makes you happy. If Louis says anything punch him, joking don’t. Just tell him to back the f*ck off.

I was sitting on the bed smiling and during the time I was reading the letter Dr. Perry had walked in.

“Someone looks happy, that must be a good letter.” He said at the door.

“Yeah.” I replied.

“You should really call your boyfriend he’s been here ten times to talk to you. He spent the night and I told him that if you wanted to talk to him you would want him to smell good, not like a hospital.”

“Thank you.” I laughed. “So can I go home today?”

“Yes you can, if you are careful. You just need to eat first and we are going to get you your medicine then you are free.”

“Great, thank you so much. For everything.” I said smiling.

“Text or call, I don’t care just your boyfriend wants to hear from you.” Dr. Perry said quietly pointing to my phone then walked out.

I just laughed and did as he told me to, I texted Liam. “Hey, I’m leaving the hospital today. I miss you, xx.” I put my phone down and Eleanor walked in.

“Hey.” I said happily.

“Hey, how are you feeling?” She asked sitting down next to me.

“Great, so I can leave soon. Do you want to call Avalon and see if she wants to hang out? Just get coffee or something simple?”

“Yeah sure, sounds fun. You know you are going to have to change though.”

“Yes, I know. Let me see what my mom brought me.” I said walking over to the bag.

Dr. Perry walked in with my food and medicine.

“Okay, so here’s your lunch.” He said putting it on the table, then waving to Eleanor. “This is your medicine, take one every morning.”

Eleanor waved back and smiled.

“Thank you so much.” I said walking over to my lunch.

“I will be back in 20 minutes, then you can leave.” He said.

I nodded. He left and I ate my lunch while talking to Eleanor. It wasn’t that big of a lunch compared to what I usually got. When I finished I picked up the outfit that my mom had packed for me and changed in the bathroom. 

“You look very nice, the two of you.” Dr. Perry said while I was packing my stuff up.

“Thank you.” We both said while laughing.

“Eleanor, please make sure she takes her medicine. Tell Liam or anybody please.”

“Will do.” She replied.

“And you, I don’t want to see you in this hospital for at least half a month. Please, don’t hurt yourself anymore. If you are here for someone else that’s fine just you’ve been to the hospital enough.”

“Okay, I’ll try.” I said smiling.

“Tory catch.” Eleanor said throwing my phone to me.


“Careful please, don’t break something.” Dr. Perry joked. “I’ll let you two finish up and then leave.”

“Thank you.” We said at the same time again.

I checked my phone and Liam had texted me back. “Hey babe, great. So tonight… do you want to go to the movies, dinner, what do you want to do?” He is so cute; I was smiling while reading his text. Come to think of it I’ve been smiling a lot today.

“You ready child?” Eleanor joked.

“Yeah.” I said pulling the bag over my head and onto my shoulder. 

I was talking to Eleanor on the way out while texting Liam. I texted him, “I don’t care, anything. Tonight we are doing something together, that’s for sure.” While we were walking through the Lobby everyone was saying hi to me, I guess I have been here a lot lately.

“Goodbye Ms. Tomlinson.” Everyone said.

I just waved goodbye to everyone.

“Okay, so Avalon is going to meet us at the mall.” She said as we got into the car.

“Great. This will be fun.” I said excitedly.

The car ride was mostly us talking, singing and me texting for the two of us. When we got to the mall Avalon was standing at the entrance. She was wearing this, Eleanor was wearing this, And I was wearing this, We parked and then met Avalon at the entrance with a huge hug.

“Hey, how’ve you been? Tory, the last time I saw you, you were going to the hospital and now you are just coming back from one. Did you have a nice vacation for like a week or whatever?” Avalon joked.

“Actually no, two different vacations. Other than that I’ve been okay.” I replied.

“You’ve been okay?” Eleanor said sarcastically.

“How are you Eleanor?” Avalon asked.

“Great, and you?”

“I’ve been good. You know same old same old, just been working.”

“Can we go inside and get something to drink or something please.” I added.

“Sure.” They both said simultaneously.

We walked inside it was extremely crowded. It was so loud it was like we were at one of the boys’ concerts. Out of nowhere, someone came and lifted me up off the ground from the back. I tilted my head back and I saw that it was Liam and I couldn’t help but smile. He put me down the turned me around so I was facing him and then kissed me.

“Hey, what are you doing here?” I asked.

“I’m here to spend time with you.” He replied.

“Oh. I was going to spend the afternoon with—.” I started.

Before I could continue Eleanor and Avalon pulled me away.

“No, you are spending the day with him. That was our plan, you two need to go on a date.” Eleanor started.

“Yeah, so we are going to do our own thing and you’re going to do your own thing with your boyfriend, Liam.” Avalon added.

“Also when did you get tattoos?” Eleanor asked.

“I’ll tell you another time, it’s too long of a story.” I said.

“Okay, you might want to go before you boyfriend gets mobbed by fans.” Avalon said pointing towards the group of girls running towards Liam.

“Okay, thank you.” I began.

“Just go.” They both demanded.

“Fine.” I said turning around then walking to Liam.
