It was our last day in Florida and we were gonna go to Disney World since my mom knows tons of people who can get us in. Everyone had been to Disney except for Bella. And you could say that she was anxious.
"So we have to get minnie mouse ears and the boys have to get mickey ears and I have the cutest outfit for it. I'm wearing my black crop top and red polka-dotted skirt and my red converse. I am probably going to be the most spirited out of all of you un-spirited wack jobs." She smiled her perfect white smile at me and I just shook my head.
You could define Bella as a "girly-girl". She loved to get all dressed up and she loved to do her hair and wear makeup and to impress everyone, and that is what she does. Me on the other hand could be more defined as a "sweatpants everyday girl". I was more about being comfortable than being glamorous. I don't mind getting dressed up and looking flawless but, I have to be comfy. Bella kills to be as fabulous as she can be, even if she has to sacrifice her comfort.
"Liam, are you excited to go back to 'the happiest place on earth'?" I smirked at him and he just looked up at me from the couch and smiled.
"Not as happy as she is," He chuckled and nudged toward Bella's bedroom.
"Are you really gonna wear your snapback all day? Because that won't work for her. She wants us to all to wear the mickey / minnie ears. The. Whole. Time." I smiled wide and he rolled his eyes.
"Absolutely not." He got up and grabbed onto my waist. His fingertips lightly digging into my skin.
"You look so damn cute in those high-waisted shorts." He smiled and I wrapped my arms around his neck.
"You look gothic in all black,"
"My shoes have red in them and my shirt has some red stitching." He replied, jokingly offended.
When we got inside Disney, my mom brought along a friend then they all disappeared, Blakely and Luke disappeared without even giving notice, and then the four of us just stuck together.
We went on all the rides at Magic Kingdom and we got minnie and mickey ears by Bella's force but, out of her wallet - which all of us objected to but, she stated clearly that we wouldn't buy them so she was gonna buy them for us, which was slightly true.
We found everyone and we all went to go eat dinner at a really cute outside diner in view of Cinderella's castle. We chatted up a few last conversations and my mom's friend, Steph, was somewhat more interested in the boys' lives than Bella's and mine.
The boys were just as casual as we were but, I'm absolutely positive she wanted to hear them talk since they have such strong accents. I don't have such a strong accent but, Bella picked up a heavier one since she's been dating Harry.
"So girls, what are your plans for when you return home?" My mom questioned.
"Well, I really want to pursue in travelling and photography and taking a gap year and then going off to school for acting." I smiled at Liam, who gave me the idea in the first place to take a gap year with him.
"And Bella?" She smiled at Bella, who was smiling at Harry.
"Um, I think I want to start a brand new life. Make something of myself. I have always wanted to travel to paradise. You know, somewhere other than that rugged town that I get sick of looking at. Anywhere other than there is paradise. So I think I'm gonna do some travelling myself." Her words came out as if she had this memorized and recited it in the mirror.
"Now I want to know what these young padawans are doing?" I said, playfully punching at Blakely's arm.
She laughed and it reminded me of my father's. "I really want to do something like law school or medical school. Medical school has been a thing for me since day one and I think I wanna do medical work in Australia." She looked down and her hands fumbled.
"Wow...Australia?" Steph asked, sounding fascinated.
"Yeah, it's where I would like to live one day and I want to become a doctor so what better place to do my work." She chuckled and I could feel the intensity between her and Luke.
"Luke, do you and the band plan on getting big?" Harry asked him, smirking.
"I don't know. The boys and I are just another group of boys singing on youtube. I doubt we'll get discovered but, it would be a miracle if we did." I looked at Blakely and the tense air between them seems to have faded but, I can tell something is wrong.
After the conversation dies down, the awkward silence is diminished by the fireworks that pop in the sky in all shades of the rainbow- completely lighting up the sky and making Bella just about piss her pants.
"Ahhh. This was the best day ever." She said as she watched the fireworks shoot off in the sky and explode into big circles then falling as though they were never there.
That night before I went to sleep, I was about to go into bed when my phone rang and an unknown number popped on the caller ID. My fingers fumbled over the answer sign and finally I pressed down.
"Brook, baby is that you? Wow you sound so beautiful." His voice stung my ears.
"Noah, how the hell did you get my number?" I felt my anxiety fire up a storm and my hand began to shake.
Liam came out of the shower with the towel wrapped around his waist, the water droplets still present on his chest.
"Who is that?" He asked, checking the time; 1:45 am.
I shut my eyes and tears were forming as I waited for him to answer me back and then finally I heard him sigh on the other line.
"Listen, I need you to come meet me. It's very important that I see you." He pleaded but, I can hear the arrogance in his voice, the kind of arrogance and drowsy sound that I was once attracted to.
"Please, just leave me alone." A tear fell and before it even hit my cheek, Liam had my phone.
"LIAM STOP YOU'RE GOING TO MAKE IT WORSE!" I was yelling but, I was also trying to be quiet since everybody was sleeping.
"Who is this?" He growled through the phone.
"Liam, stop you're gonna make this worse, please, stop." I was bawling now. I thought I rid of him a while ago but, he has my number now.
He was completely ignoring me and I just wanted to leave and never see anyone again. I just wish there was a way to get rid of Noah.
"Stop calling her, she doesn't want to speak or see y-" Liam started, angrier than when he took the phone.
"If I ever see you near her or if you call her again, I swear to god, I will not hesitate to beat the shit out of you. Now lose her number or so help me, you will wish you never even dialed the first number." He hung up and I got up I fell into his arms.
"Liam, what did you do? Oh god, he is gonna find out where I live and he will come find me and oh my god Liam." Finally my soft voice disappeared and I was returned to angry.
"WHY COULDN'T YOU JUST LISTEN TO ME? YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT HE IS CAPABLE OF. HE IS CRAZY LIKE HE BELONGS IN THE LOONEY BIN." I was whisper yelling now and I was so confused in my emotions that I just went back into my bed and he crawled in next to me, kissing me on the cheek.
"I promise he won't hurt you." He whispered and then shut off the bedside table light
