4. I can't believe I am doing this

*Sophie's POV*

I was having a lovely dream. I felt his hands on my face, then our lips met, and we made love. When it was over I looked into eyes I was not expecting to look into, Louis'.

I quickly shot up and was back in my room, I turned over and lifted back teh blankets a little, thank god it was Harry. I put my hand on my forehead to soak up some of the sweat. I was freaking out, why would I have this dream. Oh yeah, I kissed Louis behind Harry's back. I am a terrible girlfriend.

I got up and went to the bathroom, then took a shower.


I walked back into our bedroom in a towel to notice Harry was not in bed anymore. Where had he gone? I thought maybe he had gone down stairs so I got dressed and brushed my hair. I did my make up and put some socks on. I walked down the stairs and found Harry on the couch watching TV. I sat next to him.

"What are you watching?" I ask laying my head on his shoulder, he jumped from the wetness of my hair. I laughed and so did he.

"Just the news."

"Well you should turn on something good." I said smiling. "How do you feel, I don't think you drank enough to have a hangover."

"I feel fine, I only had like two beers."

"Do you want to watch a movie?" I ask looking at our movie shelf, half filled with movies we have not even seen yet.

"Sure, why don't you go pick, I am going to go get dressed."

"Ok." I went over to the shelf and looked through them, I was in the mood for a scary movie. Then I found the perfect one. I grabbed it and popped it into the dvd player. 

He came down stairs and sat down again.

"What movie did you pick?" He was getting comfortable on the couch again.

"You'll see."

Then the play screen for the house at the end of the street came on. I clicked play and we began the movie. In the middle of the movie, I got a phone call. It was an unknown number, I answered it and a nice sounding lady picked up.

"Hello." I said.

"Hello, is there a Sophie Brown there."

"This is she. May I ask who I am speaking to." Harry had paused the movie and was staring at me.

"Yes, I am July Hansen, I was looking at your application for Hansen and company."

"Oh, yes, alright."

"I was wondering if you would still like the job, I know it has been a while, but we would love for you to work for us."

"That sounds great, when do I start."

"We were wondering if you would start as early as tomorrow at shall we say 8:00 am."

"Sounds great, alright thank you, bye."


We hung up.

"Who was that?" Harry was looking at me still.

"That was Lucy Hansen, she just gave me a job, I start tomorrow at 8:00."

"Thats great Soph."

"Yeah, I am excited."

With that he started the movie again and we continued to watch it.


We watched multiple movies and soon it was time for me to go to bed so I could get up in the morning for work. I got up and we went up stairs. I got into some night wear and layed down. As did Harry.

"Good night." I say kissing him on the lips."

"Good night."

I soon drifted off to sleep.


I woke up to my alarm clock buzzing in my ear. I shot up and went to the bathroom, took a shower and got ready for work.


I was on my way to work when I spotted Louis going the other way. I walked over to him.

"Hey." I say smiling.

"Hey." He was acting kind of stand off-ish. I knew why.

"Look, I think we should talk about the other night."

"Ok, well I have to go pick up Alex right now."

"I have to got to work, do you want to meet up later at your place and talk?"

"Yeah, sure."

"Ok, here is my number, text me your address." I handed him a piece of paper with my number on it. He took the paper and we went our seperate ways.

I made it to work right on time and a nice lady showed me the way to my desk, I sat down and started my paper work.


I had finished earlier than I had thought I would have. I got everything done that I needed to do, and was ready to leave. I grabbed my things and said goodbye to my boss. I left and went down the street, and went to the coffee shop. Once I had my coffee, I left and was walking down the busy side walk. This city was really packed. I took out my phone, and found what I had been waiting for, a text from Louis.

"Hey, it's Lou, my address is 4501 mockingbird lane." I laughed at the street name, I had heard it so many times before.

I walked home and got into my car. I drove out to the country, where I knew this address was. I found the road and drove down it looking for the number 4501, once I found it I parked in the driveway.

*Louis' POV*

I texted her, I felt really bad for kissing her behind Harry's back, he has never done anything wrong to me. He even invited me to his party. I waited all day and watched Alex play until, I had to bring her back to her mother's house. I only got her today because she didn't have anywhere else to go. I love her, but sometimes I just need a break. I got home and sat down. I watched some TV until I heard the sound of a car. I looked out the window to see Sophie shutting the door to her truck, the same one she had since we were teenagers, she grabbed her purse and pulled it up over her shoulder. I heard her soflty knock on the door, I prepared myself and opened the door.

*Sophie's POV*
I knocked on the door, and it took a minute, but he finally answered. I looked at him and smiled.

"Hi." I said quietly.

"Hi. Come in." He said moving to the side as for me to walk in. I did so and he shut the door behind me as I looked around.

"Would you like something to drink, water, soda, tea?" He asked as I sat down on the couch.

"No thank you." He sat down on the couch across from me.

"About the other night. I am sorry for what I did, I feel terrible, I know you have moved on and I want you and Harry to be happy. I guess it's just...hard."

"No, Louis don't be sorry. I let it happen. The truth is, I really don't know if I have fully moved on yet."

"Really." He came over and sat next to me.

"Yeah, I thought I had, until you came back into my life. Now I'm not sure."

We sat there in silence until I looked at him.

"I don't know if I can ever move on." I say looking him in the eyes.

"I know, I can never move on, I loved you for so long."

"Yeah. I just wanted to come and clear some things up, like Harry will never find out about this. He can't, it would break my heart."

"I promise you, he will never find out."


We sat there in silence again.

"Well, I guess I better be going." I stood up and pulled my purse over my shoulder again.

"No, wait, don't go, please, just stay."

"I can't." I say.

"Why not?"

"I have to get back to Harry. He will be worrying."

I sat down next to him again and rubbed his shoulder.

"I am sorry that this whole thing happened. I guess we didn't belong together." I helf smiled at him trying to make him feel better, even though I am pretty sure I just made it worse.

He put his hand on my knee. "I KNOW we belong together. This is just another opsticle, don't you see?"

I moved his hand just for him to put it back. "Louis, I don't think it is. I am sorry."

"But it is, I know it." He was crying now.

I started crying. I stood up and his hand fell. I walked to the door and opened it a tiny bit, before I was moved and the door was slammed shut and locked.

"What the hell Louis?" I asked.

He turned me around and pushed me up against the door, then kissed me. I had never felt more whole with anyone. We kissed for what seemed like days on end until he stopped.

"I am so sorry."

I knew it was bad, but I felt it was right.

"No, I am sorry."

I kissed him again.


We lay there breathless. I felt so bad. I started to cry.

"What is the matter?"

"If Harry ever finds out, he will hate me."

"He will never find out."

I kept crying.

"Don't cry, it wasn't your fault Sophie, it was my fault."

"It was not all your fault, it was mine too."

"I have to say, I have missed this."

"Missed seeing me cry?" I laughed at my little joke there, even though it wasn't funny.

"No, missed looking at you and talking to you, kissing you."

'Me too."

"I love you Soph."

"I can't believe I am doing this. I love you too."

"What should we do about it?"

"I don't know, all I know is that I am happy right here, lets make the best of it."


I stood up and got dressed. Fixed my hair and make up and put my shoes on.

"I better get going, it's getting kinda late."

"Yeah. I will see you tomorrow. Right?"

"Yeah, I will come over after work."

"Great, see you then."

"See you then." I opened the front door and left.

I got in the car and drove home, when I parked in the driveway, I put my head in my hands.

I lifted my head up and smiled, I can't believe I am doing this.
