25. The Letter
"Victoria, where's Courtney?" Harry asked walking into the dining room where I was having breakfast with my parents who still wouldn't stop glaring at Niall. I seriously did feel a bit bad for him, but then I remember the little stunt he pulled yesterday and all my pity for him disappears.
"She hasn't come out for breakfast have you tried her room?" I response to Harry before focusing back on the home cook breakfast that my mom made. I missed not having to worry about cooking, maybe these next few days with my parents here wouldn't be too bad. My dad had already announced that this weekend we were all going to the local park to have a nice old fashioned BBQ.
"Victoria, you might want to come see this because I am honestly hoping that I am not." Harry shouts from Courtney's room.
"Can't a girl just eat her breakfast without being interrupted?" I shout back at him while walking away from my food to go see what Curly was fussing about. "Where is all her shit?" I ask walking the half empty that only now contained most of Harry's stuff and a few t-shirts stacked in a neat pile that belonged to either Sam, Abs or me.
"So I am not imagining all her stuff gone?" Harry said looking in the drawers and the closest before venturing into the bathroom to the same thing all around the room. "Everything that was ever belonged to her is gone." I look in the bedside drawer only to find a neat stack of letters folded inside. There was one with each of our names on it neatly written in Courtney's handwriting.
"This is one is for you." I said handing Harry his letter before walking with the rest of the letters in hand. I walk into my room and lock the door behind before throwing the other letters on my dresser and focusing on the one that had my name written on it. I open the folded paper and I see that inside nothing as neat as my name printed outside.
I am sorry.
Yeah that seems like a good way to start this off. I guess this is my goodbye letter? I don't know what the hell to call this. I kind of hope it's not my goodbye letter though, but my 'I'll see you later' letter.
I am heading home, Vic. There is nothing that any of us can do to stop this, Simon was fair and told us (well me) the rules. My time is up and now I am heading home. Oh God, I sound like someone leaving some game show. I am going to miss you so much. I will never forget all the memories that we share during the many years of friendship we had and these last two months in London. I hope that one day we are able to meet up again. I don't have your number or any way of contacting you and my phone has been disconnected. I am guessing Simon is taking extra steps just to make sure I never have any contact with the boys again. Make sure you tell Harry that I didn't leave because of him and I want you to help him find other girl. I guess I am going to be the bigger person here and say...I am setting him free. There that stupid quote right? You know the one you used to tell me all the time?
"If you love someone let them free, if they come back they are yours and if they don't they were never yours to begin with."
Well I setting Harry free and if he comes back to me...if he is able to find me then I know how much he cares.
Oh and tell Niall that if he hurts you I will hunt him down and make him suffer.
Okay well I am finally all packed and I only have Harry's letter to write, because I knew that it was going to be the one that hurt the most to write. But seriously Vic, come visit me. I am going to miss you so much. I can't even call or text or anything...they took it all away. See you hopefully soon.
Your Little Canadian (WHO IS TALLER THAN YOU),
It's been about three days since Courtney left and I haven't really left my room expect for some bathroom breaks and showers. My parents left a day ago leaving me with worried glances and more glares at Niall warning him to make sure that I get better. Harry, he is in worse shape, after reading the letter that Courtney left him, he came into my room and just sobbed next to me. I honestly was too upset myself to really comfort him at all, but in the end we ended grabbing a bottle of wine that Abs had hidden behind the canned vegetables. We sat in my room with the bottle between us wondering just about the different things that Courtney could have been doing at that moment. The next day Louis came over and took Harry home with him, telling us that we had enough on our hands and that we didn't have to be dealing with the grieving curly haired boy. I still find it so ironic that the very day Courtney left Harry had been planning on asking her out. If she had only pulled one last rebellion act and stayed at least a few more hours all her worried would have been solved.
"You haven't eaten all day." Niall mumbled from the doorway to my room where I was just laying scrolling down tumblr softly smiling at the stupid things that popped up.
"I am not hungry." I answered before closing the tab and opening other and scrolling down Twitter instead. Niall or management had still not made any comment on Niall and I's relationship which only left everyone on the social media sites asking questions.
@LoveTheBrits: Who are the girls who keep showing up with the boys?
@WanderingLondon: Is it true that finally all of One Direction is taken? PLEASE SAY IT AIN'T SO!
More and more tweets popped up on my timeline and all of them asking the same questions who were we and what were we doing around the boys.
"It so damn early and I had a date with Kyle today." Abs grumbled from the seat next to me as we waited patiently for the airplane to take off.
"I know, but we had to leave before any of the boys noticed because they aren't allowed to come with us. Plus you know how much airplanes scare me." I explained to Abby who only mumbles a few words before placing her head on shoulder and dozing off. Courtney had said in her letter that she was going home of course Harry has no idea where home is since apparently that topic never came up, but I knew where she was going. Where I was hoping she was going to be. I had visited Canada only once before about a year ago to go meet up with Courtney. It was a really short trip and I only stayed for about two days before leaving. I faintly remember where Courtney's house was, but that didn't stop me from worrying how lost I was going to get once I got there. I was just hoping that I was right and Courtney hadn't wandered off anywhere else, because if she did then I was going to have to go on a worldwide search just to find her.
I am in pain.
I am having horrible back, head, and stomach pain. I hate it.
Courtney updated only yesterday and she forced me to update today. So here ya go chapter 24!! So yesterday I went to go see the fireworks at a ballpark about 15 minutes from my house with my friend Abby and her friend Teri. It was fun. We actually ended up filming Courtney a video...which I still don't know if she watched or not -.-
Courtney: I didn't :3. At least not that I remembered
