I Finally Found You (Completed)

Today, my name is Olivia Moore. But, it used to be Erin Parker. I had grown up with a normal life in Holmes Chapel, England. I had two of the best parents a child could have. Though I didn’t have any siblings, I had a best friend, Harry.

But, that all changed two years ago. Why? Because I died...or at least that’s what everyone thought. They all thought that I was in a car explosion when I was 16, when someone had planted a car bomb. My friends, family, and anyone I had ever known lost me.

But in reality, none of that happened. Yes, I lost the people around me, but that was because I went into hiding. Three days before I “died,” I saw something that I shouldn't have, so my life was in danger. I didn't really have very much time to say goodbye to everyone I loved. The fact that they didn't know what really happened kills me, they all think I’m dead, that I’m never going to come back. Until now.

13. Chapter 12

 

-Harry-

 

Once I got back to the hotel, I had to be escorted by one of the security guards so the fans wouldn't mob me, but I still stopped a couple of times for pictures and autographs. I was mostly trying to stall the time until I had to face Paul. 

But that time eventually came. I walked out of the lift to see Paul waiting for me. Yes, he was mad, but I didn't get in trouble as much as I had expected.

He had his hands on his hips when I came through the door into his room, “There you are,” He said, sounding relieved. “Where have you been?”

“Just…around the city.” I responded.

He huffed his breath, “How many times do I have to tell you Harry? You can’t just leave like that. It may sound like I’m holding you back from doing anything fun, but I’m looking out for you, it’s my job. You need to listen…” and blah, blah, blah.

Maybe I should’ve been listening closer, but I knew what the lecture was going to sound like. He would give me the same speech whenever I would do something that I wasn’t supposed to. It was all about responsibility and maturity. But I’ve heard it so many times. I probably could actually just recite it off the top of my head.

But I knew where Paul was coming from. The lads and I were practically his own sons so I understood how he felt, even though it was his job.

“…okay?” He finished.

“I understand Paul. Can I go? I want to talk to the boys.”

He gestured to the door, “Yeah sure. Go ahead.”

I left happily, because I had been left off the hook. As I walked down the hall, Liam almost tackled me when we ran up behind me, "Everyone's in Niall's room again playing Fifa. You coming?"

I knew that Liam really wanted me to just tell everyone about Erin. But I also knew that I couldn't say anything. I had to keep my promise to Erin. I couldn't tell anyone about her, even them. It would only put everyone in danger.

The only real solution was to tell them that I never saw Erin. It was probably going to be one of the worst lies in history, because a lot of things wouldn't add up once I told them. I wasn't sure if they were going to question me or not. But if they did, I would have to stand my ground no matter how crazy or stupid I sounded. I had thought up a plan in the cab on the way back. I was just hoping they would believe me.

"Yeah sure Liam. Who's playing now?'

"Niall and Zayn. Zayn's losing miserably." We laughed because we knew how good Niall was and how bad Zayn was at Fifa. Whenever they played each other, it wasn't even a match.

When we got to Niall’s room, we saw, sure enough, that Niall was dominating. Everyone was spread out on the two couches or sprawled out on the floor. "Zayn, why did you agree to play Fifa against Niall again?" I asked Zayn as I stood behind him.

"I don't know Haz, okay? Why does everyone keep on asking that?" He shook his head and kept on trying to concentrate on the game. 

Louis bursted out with mockery and laughter, "Because you were bloody stupid to even agree!" 

"Whatever." Zayn grumbled.  

"Hey now! At least I'm going easy on you!" Niall said smiling while making yet another goal.

We sat there watching Niall and Zayn finish the match. When they were done, Zayn reached for the remote and turned off the telly. 

"What'd you do that for?" Niall asked. 

Zayn looked straight at me and gave me a smile. It was more curious than mischievous, but it still made me extremely nervous "I want to know how Erin is."

I put on a fake face that looked like I was very sad and confused. I looked down at my feet to hide any sign of me lying, "She wasn't there."

"What?" They all said at once.

"What do you mean she wasn't there?" Louis asked.

I kept on looking down and started to tell them the huge lie that I made up, "The girl I saw, somehow knew about Erin's death and how close we were. When I ran into her, she realized that I used to know someone that looked like her.

“After she heard me say 'Erin,' she googled anyone with that name that might've known me. She then decided to become 'Erin' to meet me. When I went over to meet her, I realized she wasn't who she said she was, so I left." I put my face in my hands and tried to make it look like I was going to break down any second.

"I'm so sorry Harry." Liam said. 

"Yeah mate, that sounds terrible. I can’t believe someone would actually do that; that's disgusting." Niall added, sounding a little angry. 

I shook my head and sighed, "I just can't believe that I was so gullible."

"Don't worry about it Haz," Zayn said, "you were probably just so excited to see her, so you just looked past the differences."

I hated lying to them, specifically with something this big. But no one could know about Erin, not even the lads. I just had to believe in my lie and act like it was the truth. I was just surprised that they believed in the entire thing. Everyone knew that I couldn't act, mostly because of the iCarly episode that we had filmed. It hadn’t aired yet, but we all knew how bad it was. 

"Just come over here and play some Fifa with us, Harry," Louis said while motioning me to come over and sit next to him. "It will probably be best if you just forget about the whole thing."

I nodded and walked over to sit next to him. 

We went back to playing the game. I actually had some kind of a chance against Niall, so the game was close. But in the end, Liam was the champion of the night. We played for hours, switching to Call of Duty and other games in the process.

We had decided on ordering some pizza for the night. Management didn't want us walking around tonight because of our Today Show gig that we had that morning. They wanted us to lay low while our "fame" gets bigger in America, or at least for today. Our security team also didn't want anything to happen to us the night before the concert tomorrow; it was a huge thing for us.

I went back to my room to get some rest after the eventful day. I lied in bed thinking about how we had possibly cracked America and how I finally found Erin. I didn't think it was possible for her to be alive, especially after everything that had happened. I had texted her, telling her I would be over sometime tomorrow afternoon, once her roommate had left. 

I contemplated on what we would do tomorrow, because we couldn't really do anything outside without risking getting her picture taken. I just didn't want to sit around all day. Erin used to hate that sometimes and I'm guessing things haven't changed much. 

I worried about leaving to go see her without being able to tell everyone where I was really going. They right now believed that Erin was gone and that I had been worrying about absolutely nothing the entire time. 

After a long time of thinking, I closed my eyes, drifting off to sleep.

 

-Erin-

 

My classes were done for the day, which made me extremely happy. The algebra test that I took early this morning was really hard, but I'm pretty sure that I did a good job on it. Studying with Mia helped a lot, even though I was the one helping her. 

I took a quick ride on the subway from the university to my flat after classes. After taking the lift up to the eleventh floor, I unlocked my door to see Mia putting on her coat.

"Hey!" She greeted me, "I was just leaving to see Trevor."

"Oh!” I walked over to put my bag down on the counter, "What are you planning on doing?"

"It's a surprise, but he told me to dress warm. So I'm guessing that we're doing something outside maybe?"

"Let's just hope that it doesn't involve very much walking around or I'll be hearing you complain about your feet tomorrow."

She looked down at her simple, but lovely, purple heels, "What do you mean?" She asked, clicking them together.

"Mia, you're wearing five inch heels that barely have any support. You are bound to have blisters in a couple of hours if you're walking around the entire time."

"Yeah, well, I don't care. They match my scarf really well." Which, they did.

"Whatever, just get going. I think I saw him waiting for you outside."

"Alright, see you tonight Liv!" She left after I told her to have fun. I immediately texted Harry after she closed the door.

 

To: Harry:

The bird has left the nest ;)

 

From: Harry

Good because the tiger is on the hunt ;)

 

To: Harry

That didn't make any sense, and why are you a tiger? I expected something with a lot of hair...you aren't even close to being a tiger :)

 

From: Harry

I AM A TIGER

 

I rolled my eyes and put my phone back into my pocket. I laughed a little bit because I knew what he meant. He was a tiger a lot of the time when we played games when we were younger, no matter what the game was. He just always wanted to be one, and always insisted on it.

Of course he grew out of it when he got older, but he would sometimes joke around with me. He would say that he was still a tiger, just to bring back some childhood memories.

I went into my room after grabbing my bag, then setting it next to my desk, where I always put it. 

It was kind of annoying that I couldn't hang out with Harry in the outside world. Instead we had to be in my flat the entire time. I didn't want him to feel bored around me, but there was a very high chance that he could when we were always cooped up inside here.

I heard a knock on the door, so I walked over to see who it was. I checked the peep hole and was surprised to see Harry. I didn't think he would get here so quickly.

I opened to door to see him with a backpack on his shoulder, "Hey.” I said, letting him in. He walked in and kissed me on the cheek. 

"Hey Ehr Bear."

"Are you happy that you can say that from now on?" I asked sarcastically.

"Yes, very much so."

I was curious for why he brought a bag with him, "What's that?" I asked, pointing to it.

He smiled as he grabbed my hand and walked me over to the couches. We sat down and he set the bag in front of him, "You shall see."
