“I don’t want to lose you. You are the first girl I have ever felt this way with, and I can’t picture what it would be like without you in my life, I need to be with you forever” As he spoke, I listened carefully and nodded. “I love you too Harry. I don’t want to lose you either, but what are we going to do? They are ruining my career…” I chose my words carefully, as I didn’t want Harry to take the blame for anything I was saying. I was simply trying to solve the problem, not make him feel bad about it. I decided to tell him that. “I don’t want you to take any blame, because this isn’t your fault, at all. You can’t control how the fans will react and what they will think. “He nodded, and I knew he understood. “I just feel terrible seeing you go through this and it hurts me because I can’t make it better. It’s like seeing someone you love is sick; you want to make it better but you can’t.” He looked down at the ground like he always did when he was truly hurting. I didn’t know what to say or do, he was right. He couldn’t fix it. “Well, what should we do..?” I asked, afraid to hear his answer. “Well we can’t break up, if that’s what you are implying?” He looked up, with his puppy dog eyes, and I knew that I couldn’t break up with him. I didn’t want to live if we had to break up. Nothing was worth losing him. Not my career, not money, nothing: and I realised that looking into his eyes. “No babe, we are not. I don’t think it is fair to give in like that. We will have to think of something else." With that, he smiled a small, soft smile. He looked up at me and kissed me. At least we knew one thing: Neither of us wanted to break up. I felt secure in knowing that we weren’t about to give up that easily. “I think we should sit down with John, your manager, and my mom, and have a discussion about this. We need to tell them we can’t give up like this and give in to the fans. Maybe they will have another idea on what to do.” Harry nodded, and smiled. “I’ll call our manager now.” He said. I called my mom and told her and John to come back to the hotel. Harry said their manager was on their way, and just as he came in, Mom and John got home. They all looked around a little bit confused, but not angry. “Mom, we are all going to sit down and talk this through, because Harry and I are not giving up on each other and giving into what the public wants.” As I spoke, Harry nodded in agreeance, and I thought Mom would be mad, but they all had a smile on their face. “Oh Sunshine, I know you are much too stubborn to give into anybody” Mom said with a grin on her face. “I love you for that, baby. You are independent, and I would never want you making an important decision like that just because of what other people think.” I loved my mother. Her sweet words made everything better, and she always made so much sense when she spoke. I looked up at Harry and he looked relived. At least one of the adults was on our side. John and Harry’s manager were thinking. Then, John made a suggestion. “Well, if you two have decided to get through this together, that’s fine. How about we pull Brook off of the 1D tour, and I work on getting her different shows, with her own fans, so the Directioners do not have to go to her shows if they do not want to. She can make her own fan base, and they can support her.” When John suggested that, I could have sworn I heard bells or angels singing. That was brilliant, why didn’t we think of that? I looked at Harry and looked back at my Mom. “So it’s settled then? I will start booking Brook her own shows.” John said, confirming the matter. Everyone nodded their head and Harry’s manager said he would look for a new opening act. The adults left Harry and I alone, and all we could do was hold each other tight. I loved him and he loved me. That was all I could ask for. I’m glad he didn’t give up on me. He held me tight, until we both fell asleep.
