Live While We're Young

Layla, an 18-year-old dancer and her best friend, Addison moved to London. After their first day of college Layla became friends with a boy named Harry. What she didn't know was that he would only cause a chain reaction of dramatic events.

I update at least 2 times a day. Please like, favorite, and comment!! I am open to any suggestions... so if you would like for something to happen in particular don't be shy to ask! :D


5. I hate you.

~Authors note~ Sorry it took so long to update! I usually start writing first thing in the morning... but today my mom was cleaning her house (and it magically became mine too) so I had to spend most of the day doing chores... :/


*Layla's P.O.V*

I'm dreaming. I have to be!

They saw me and froze in place.

Fuck! I'm not dreaming!

I clenched my fists and screamed on top of my lungs, "I hate you!" I ran back upstairs tears spilling out madly.

"Addy!" Harry called after me.

I spun around and stormed up to him. "What!?" I snapped catching him off guard.

He just stood there speechless.

"Know what, Harry?  You were right."

He looked at me confused.

"Maybe I should date Niall. He is a way better boyfriend than you will ever be." And with that I grabbed my coat and stormed outside. All I did was run, not having any destination in mind. Soon I was out of breath, my legs hurt, and my vision was getting blurry  because of the tears. I looked around for a place to rest, and my eyes landed on a park.

I walked over to the swings and plopped down digging my face into my hands, letting the sobs shake my body. After a long 5 minutes I took out my phone. Scrolling through my contacts I was wondering who I should call for help. My finger lands on Avery and after a moment of hesitation I press talk. After the 5th ring she answered. "Hello!?" her groggy voice snapped.

"Hi. It's Layla, sorry for calling at," I check the time, "two in the morning. It's just I caught Harry cheating on me with my own best friend, I'm lost, and I am just having a horrible night. Do you think you could come and get me and I could sleep over?"

I could tell she was speechless. "You see, I still live with my parents, but I could steal the car and sneak you into my room."

"You badass." I laugh. "I'm at this small park somewhere."

"is it across some kind of hardware store!?"

I look around seeing some store called, 'Handy Jim'

"Yes! How do you know?"

"Me and Ariana literally spent a summer at that park! I'll be there in 5 minutes." with that she hung up.

When I we got to her house we went straight to bed.

The next morning she gave me a spare toothbrush and some of her cloths. For breakfast we went downstairs, and luckily her parents were already gone to work. Ariana looked shocked when she saw me but Avery explained everything to her, making me cringe at the cheating part. I watched the two girls pig out on toasts, I had lost my apatite.

Avery drove us to school later. During class time I wasn't paying attention, someone saying my name snapped me out of my thoughts. It was my teacher and she looked pissed off! "If you want to pass my class, miss, you should start paying attention."

"Sorry, miss. It won't happen again."

"It better not." She grumbled and walked away.

I tried my best to keep up with the notes.

~at lunch~

As I walked over to the lunch table I noticed people's eyes on me and whispering, I guess news travels fast.

When I sat down everybody looked at me and tried to act cheery.

"Hi! How are you?" Louis chirped.

"Couldn't be better." I said sarcastically. 

"Don't be like that, Love."

"Be like what!?" I exclaimed, "upset that my own boyfriend had cheated on me with my best friend?"

He sat there speechless.

"I'm sorry. I'm just so angry." I said resting my head in my hands.

Niall wrapped his arms around me pulling me into a tight hug. I squeezed back tightly. I heard shuffling and in the corner of my eye I saw Harry stand up and walk away.

Good. He better feel bad.
