Now Or Never

Niall and Emma got along from the day they met. Both the same age, Niall being 6 months older than Emma. They’ve known each other since they were three. The two spent every day with each other. And by coincidence they were in the same classes. They were two peas in a pod, the best of friends, almost like siblings I guess you could say. Until one day everything went downhill. As they were both 8, Emma’s mother died. In addition, her father started drinking and smoking and eventually went into depression. Emma and her father had moved from Miami, Florida to Los Angeles, California. The two inseparable were torn apart.


25. Two Who Shed Tears

~Emma’s POV~

-3 Days Later-

I’ve been able to avoid Harry for the past few days. Although he is always going out at night and comes back in the morning, then crashes on the couch. He hasn’t brought home a girl for a while but I don’t know if he is at some other girl’s house. ‘What do you care, Emma?’ Is what I keep telling myself but no matter how hard I try, I still worry about him. I would cry myself to sleep every night in Zayn’s arms and eventually I’d wake up from a nightmare about something bad happening to Harry, so these past three nights I’ve waited on the steps for him to come home. He never saw me but once I saw him lay on the couch, back home safely, I’d be relieved and go back to bed without him knowing I was even there.

“Louis!!! Can you do me a favor?!” I yelled upstairs to Louis. He walked down the steps and looked at me.

“Depends. What is it? And what do I get?” He offered.

“Hmm? Let’s see. You get a chance of having a girlfriend for once in a long time.” I bluffed.

“Who might that be?” Louis questioned with a smirk on his face.

“Louis, I need you to go pick up Aly from the airport….. because……. Um, DANI and I have plans to go do something.” I lied.

Dani looked at me confused, “We do?”

I glared back at her to see if she would catch on, “Yeah, remember that thing we had to do?”

She opened her mouth and made an ‘O’ shape, “Oh yeah, I remember now. Sorry Louis, we better get going.” We laughed and left the house.

“Haha, I’m glad you caught on.” We laughed. “Aly has a thing for Louis and I’m pretty sure he has a thing for her too.” I smiled warmingly.

“Emma, I know you’ve been acting pretty tough around us these past few days. And I just want you to know that I’m here for you. And if it’s possible, I want to help you get over Harry.” She tried to comfort me.

My lips tightened and my throat started swelling up, “Thanks, it’ll be a while though. It’s hard to tell your mind to stop loving someone when your heart still does.” I kept my eyes on the road so Dani wouldn’t be able to see the tears developing.

“Emma, You and Harry must’ve been the most romantic couple if you say things like that.” She smiled. “I know you cry yourself to sleep, but you’re not the only one that sheds tears.” She stated.

I looked towards her, “What do you mean?” I asked her confused.

“I mean, I hear you come out of your room and see you waiting on the stairs for Harry. But once you leave after seeing him home safely, he sits on the couch with his face in his hands pouring his eyes out.” She said, I was so shocked at what she said. The tears that built in my eyes wouldn’t hold back. Dani placed her hand on my lap. “He still loves you Emma, very much. I can tell.”

“Please, d-don’t tell me that. I just need some space, that’s all. I mean, if he loved me so much, then why did he have to go and have sex with some girl.” I didn’t like crying in front of others, showing that I was weak. I wiped the tears away at a traffic light and took deep breathes. I will do my best not to cry in front of people. It causes them worry. Right now, I just hope Aly and Louis hit it off today, they’re both really good people. They’d be perfect for each other. That’s what people said about me and Harry, I just hope I made the right decision.

~Louis’ POV~

When Emma asked me to pick up Aly, I was actually excited. I can’t deny that I have feelings for Aly. She was beautiful, had a great personality, and the cutest laugh that I just can’t resist. Once Emma and Dani left, I immediately headed out. The car ride to the airport seemed longer than I thought. I was just so anxious to see her. She came to visit Emma a few times when we lived in the flat with Harry, but it wasn’t enough for me to ask her out

I got to the  airport and saw Aly waiting outside the doors, I stopped in front of her and she was still looking for Emma’s car. I laughed and honked my horn, “Aly! Hey! Jump in!” I said and got out the car to grab her suitcase. She got into the passenger seat and giggled.

“Hey, Louis.” I got back into the drivers seat. “I though Emma was picking me up,” She smiled.

“She had something planned with Danielle.” I told her.

“Danielle?” I forgot she didn’t know anyone in the house but me, Emma, and Harry.

“One of our friend’s girlfriend. She’s living with us to.” I informed her. “Oh and the other people living with us is Liam, Niall, Harry, Zayn, Dani, you, and Me.” I added. “Liam is the big muscular guy and also Dani’s boyfriend, Dani is the curly brown haired girl, Niall is the cute irish boy, you know Harry, and Zayn is the darked haired shady boy.” I finished.

“Got it.” She laughed.

“And unfortunately they are all taken.” I said.

“They all have girlfriends!” She was surprised.

I chuckled, “No, Niall and Zayn have a thing for Emma.” I sighed.

“They know that she is dating Harry, right?” she asked a little worried.

“Emma didn’t tell you did she?” I asked. She gave me a confused look. “I guess she was waiting for you to get here to tell you so I won’t say anything. But it’s kind of tough on her, so if you don’t mind, would you not bring anything up or ask her what happened.” I said.

“Of course. You love her too don’t you, Louis?” She asked.

I giggled, “Yes, I do love her actually. But she’s like a sister, she will never be anything more than that.” I explained. “Besides, I already have someone else on my mind.” My head turned to face her and I smirked. She got the hint and blushed while playing with her hands. I think this will turn out pretty well.
