As Long As You're Here

Natalie was just a normal teenage girl trying to finish her Senior year without any drama, distractions or anything or the sort. She had finally found her true friend and who she was and what she was gong to do for the rest of her life she didn't want anything changing that. So far things are going good, but she's only about half way through the year, if that. But who knew winter break could change everything.

20. Stupid Mistakes

I wake up the next morning eyes still red and puffy from crying. I look at the clock 11:11. I smile and make a wish, Liam and I always made a wish together at 11:11, it was just our thing. But instantly after my wish I realize that its 11:11 and school started almost 3 and a half hours ago. At first I was frustrated but I soon relaxed, Jay was only doing what he knew was best for me, before I knew it was best, letting me sleep it off. I climb out of my bed, in which I was now tucked in and my backpack was neatly by my desk, where I would normally always put it and my phone was plugged in. Mum and Jay must have come in and taken care of me (and my stuff). I unplug my phone and text Jay,

 

To: JAY:)
Thanks for not waking me up and sorry for all the stuff I said and did to you yesterday... It was a crazy day

He answered almost instantly

From: JAY:)
I knew it’s what would have been best for you and don't even worry about it, I know it was stressful and none of it was your fault. Now mum and dad are at work and Noah and I are at school. It’s just you at home. Dad made breakfast for you... it’s in the fridge is you want it:)

To: JAY:)
Thanks Jay:) I love you

 

Jay's POV

Natalie and I got home from school about 3 hours ago and Noah wasn't so happy that we left him, but after I explained everything that happened he understood. No matter how crazy he may make me sometimes when it comes to Natalie he is a softy. He may not act like it all the time but I can tell he really likes Natalie and having her around. Mum and dad just got home and I explained them everything that happened today and mum insisted that she had to check on her, I told her she was most likely upstairs asleep but she still wanted to check. Mum and I went upstairs and entered Natalie's room slowly. When we got in her room she was asleep on her bed without any covers and was still in her jeans and shirt from school, at least she had taken off her shoes. Her school stuff was also scattered across her floor and her phone was all the way in the corner farthest from her, it looked like she had thrown it across the room. Mum walked over to Natalie and kissed her on the forehead and I went over and started picking up her papers and putting them back in her backpack and putting her backpack by her desk, where she always put it. I picked up her phone, she had 4 unread messages. I unlocked it putting in her passcode 5-4-2-6, it spelled Liam. Her phone unlocked and was open to old text messages between her and Liam, but one seemed to pop out it was from Liam and it read "I could honestly see myself spending the rest of my life with you... I only want to stop being your boyfriend if I will become your husband:)" Why would this text make her so mad? Just then she got another text, it was from Liam and the conversation skipped to the bottom.

 

From: Liam:)
Natalie, please stop ignoring me... This can’t happen...

Puzzled I went up through the most resent text in the conversation, they were all from Liam.

From: Liam:) 2:31
Nat... What just happened? Please tell me you weren't being serious

From: Liam:) 3:00
Babe... Please come over tonight... We need to talk about this

From: Liam:) 4:28
Natalie Anne

From: Liam:) 4:33
Natalie I promise this isn't the easy way out... We need to show people that our relationship is strong

From: Liam:) 5:42
You can’t just give up after one day... I know how strong you are and you can’t let them push you down. We can get through this together.

 

Adding all of these text messages, plus the most resent one together and what had happened today I could only think that Natalie did what she thought would be best, even if it meant giving up on her one true love. She must have broken up with Liam. I couldn't let this happen, so I got Liam's number out of her phone and sent it to myself after which I plugged her phone in and set it on her bed side table. Mum had covered Natalie with her blankets and she hadn't budged, she was out like a light. We both quiet left her room. "It was really rough day for her wasn't it?" Mum asked after we got out of her room. "You have no clue" I replied. We both walked down stairs and she went into the kitchen to help dad with dinner and I sat down in the couch and pulled out my phone and texted Liam.

 

To: Liam Payne
Hey Did you and Natalie break up?

From: Liam Payne
Um... Who is this?

To: Liam Payne
Jay

From: Liam Payne
Oh... Well yeah we did... I'm sorry for hurting your best friend

To: Liam Payne
Don’t be sorry it’s not you that hurt her, its everyone else, you made her happier than anyone else.

From: Liam Payne
Then why did she break up with me?

To: Liam Payne
I'm not sure... She thought it was the best thing to do to get out of the situation probably

From: Liam Payne
I just don't get it...

To: Liam Payne
I don't either but I have an idea of something you can do

From: Liam Payne
What do you mean?

To: Liam Payne
Well you want to talk to her right?

From: Liam Payne
Well duh, I told her to come over tonight so we can talk about it

To: Liam Payne
Well I can tell you she probably isn't coming over tonight. She's been asleep, I’m assuming since about when she got home from school.

From: Liam Payne
Oh...

To: Liam Payne
But... I can almost guarantee you she won’t get up for school tomorrow on her own and even if she does I won’t let her go to school, she needs to stay home after everything that happened today. So you could come over tomorrow around 10:45 because she will probably wake up around 11 and you can be there when she gets up and guys can talk... But only if you want to

From: Liam Payne
Of course I want to! Thank you so much you have no clue how much this means to me, thank you!

To: Liam Payne
No problem mate

 

I put my phone away and ate supper with the family and go to sleep after, not forgetting to say goodnight to Natalie before going to bed.

 

I wake up the next day and head to school. Natalie hadn't woken up on her own so my plan should work and she should be up at about 11. I grudge through the first half of the school day only asked about Natalie a few times. At 10:50 I got a text from Liam saying he was at the house and Natalie wasn't awake yet. I told him to make himself at home and that she should be up in, at most, 40 minutes. Twenty minutes later Natalie texts me,

From: NATALIE:)
Thanks for not waking me up and sorry for all the stuff I said and did to you yesterday... It was a crazy day

To: NATALIE:)
I knew it’s what would have been best for you and don't even worry about it, I know it was stressful and none of it was your fault. Now mum and dad are at work and Noah and I are at school. It just you at home. Dad made breakfast for you... it’s in the fridge is you want it:)

From: NATALIE:)

Thanks Jay:) I love you

I smile and lock my phone and get into my car to go get lunch. I knew Natalie would go downstairs to get the breakfast dad left for her and notice Liam, and they would just have to talk. If they didn't I would feel horrible.

Natalie's POV

I change out of my jeans and into sweats and one of Liam's shirts and put my phone in the pocket of my sweats. I head out of my room and walk down stairs and into the kitchen. I open the fridge and take out a plate it had a note on top of it. I read the note

Baby Natalie-
I hope you feel better and I hope you like the breakfast I made just for you
Love you,
Daddy Williams
P.s. Microwave this for 1 minute and 30 seconds and enjoy

 

I smile then place the plate in the microwave. I turn around to go sit on the couch and instead make eye contact with Liam... Jay said no one was home. "Liam? What are you doing here? How did you even get in?" I say surprised "Jay told me where the extra key was" He says smiling "can we please talk?" He then asks "Liam I told you I can't do it" "Don't talk like that... I know you're a lot stronger than that" "But Liam..." She says walking over to the couch. "What really happened yesterday?" He asks before I finish my thought. I sit down on the couch next to him and take a deep breath. "Well it all started right when we got on campus and I was rubbing my jeans with my thumb" "You were nervous?" Liam questions "Of course I was... But Jay noticed I was and grabbed my hand making me stop and a girl came up to me and accused me of cheating on you and said I didn't deserve you." I start there and tell Liam everything that happened right up till I got home yesterday. After I finished he heavily exhaled. "Michael really? I thought he was done bothering you" "I thought he was too" "Natalie that's the thing that scares me the most, I don't want you getting emotionally hurt let alone physically." "All of it scares me... I don’t want to go back to school but I know that’s what they want, they don’t want me there." "They're gonna want you there when they find out that we are really dating and they aren't feeding off of rumors" "Liam... We're not dating... No matter how badly I don’t want to say that... I just can't do it." "Natalie, come on..." "No Liam... I can’t do it... When you spend a day in my shoes then you can tell me otherwise but you have no idea" I say getting up from the couch "Natalie!" Liam calls to me "What?!" "Natalie I love you and I can’t bear letting you go" Liam says his voice getting shaky. "I love you too Liam but all the things they're saying I can’t handle it" I say starting to cry "Natalie I know how it is" "No you don’t Liam! Everyone loves you!" "No they don’t... Haven’t you seen all the hate the boys and I get?" "Well yeah but you have so many more people who love you everyone hates me" "I'm almost positive that if people were to know that we really were dating they would come to love you, the real you not the you that the media is trying to make out of you." Liam is now standing in front of me holding one of my hands, our finger intertwined. He wipes away the tears that are streaming down my face. "I know they will love you when they get to know the real you... The you that I know and love to death." I don’t say and thing but stand there looking into Liam’s eyes. "Please Natalie you can’t just walk away when things get hard... We have to get through this together." "Liam what if they don’t-" I am cut off by Liam pressing his lips to mine, our lips melt together for a bit and Liam pulls away. "Don’t you ever say that... They are going to love you... That real you. I know it. You just have to give the fans a chance. When they know the real you and they know the truth the hate should stop and if it doesn't I will be right here by your side. We can get through this... Together. Im always going to be right here" "Pinky promise?" I ask. Liam smiles and laughs "Pinky promise." He says reassuring me. We link our pinkies together and I smile. "I missed that" He says pulling me into a hug. "I missed you" I whisper to him. We both slide out of the hug "I should be going..." Liam says "No... Don’t go... Please? What do you and the boys have going on today?" "Well nothing I don’t think..." I huge smile grows on my face and Liam looks confused. "Movie marathon?" I ask "As long as we can start with Toy Story" "Of course we can" I say laughing. Liam turns around and sits down on the couch and picks up the remote. "How do I work this?" I walk over to him giggling and take the remote from his hand and set it on the coffee table. He looks at me confused, I grab him hand and take him down stairs to the theatre room. "Whoa" He whispers when we walk in. I laugh and guide him to the couch in the front we cuddle up on it and I start the movie. "Can we have popcorn?" Liam asks just as the commercials start. "Of course just as we get comfy you ask" I answer. "Sorry..." He says rubbing my thigh with his thumb. I giggle "It’s okay the popcorn's back there" I say pointing to the counter in the back of the room. Liam pushed the blankets off and I sat up so he could get up. Liam gets off the couch and back to get popcorn. While he’s back there I get out my phone and text Jay

 

To: JAY:)
Thankks Jay:) It really means a lot:)

From: JAY:)
No problem Nat:) I’m always here to help
I’m gonna miss you when you move in with that dork

To: JAY:)
Hay! Rude! Okay... He might be a dork... but he’s my dork:) But I’m gonna miss you too:) But of course I’m gonna visit you all the time and I’m still going to school:) Oh and speaking of that... You’re in class right now pay attention;)

From: JAY:)
I am... Its Stookies class... It’s hard to pay attention

To: JAY:)
Haha just remember the atoms go in One Direction:)

 

Liam comes back with the popcorn and sits down next to me and we cuddle back up together. I don't know what I would do without him and to think I almost gave it all up. I’m happy to be back with my boyfriend, nothing has changed and that’s the best part. We're the same couple we were 48 hours ago, only stronger.
