A Day to Remember

When Jodie; a normal 17 year old girl flies across the Globe to New York, will everything run smoothly or will her worries come true? When she finds out singing sensations One Direction are on the same flight, will it be a day to remember for a good or bad reason? (15+)


29. Short letters and heartbreak

Jodie’s POV:

When I told Niall I was leaving this evening, I didn’t quite tell him what time. I thought it’d be easier on everyone, including myself if I left whilst they attended the boys’ concert tonight. Instead I left a letter each. As for everyone else- they didn’t even know I was leaving; not even Zayn. “Yeah, I’m just going to stay here tonight” I smile as they walk out the door. I left a note for everyone on the kitchen side and a separate letter for Niall. I then made my way to my apartment; placed the letter for Harry on the side, picked up my suitcase and exited the hotel with tears rolling down my cheeks.


Louis’ POV:

“Ahh! That concert tonight was amazing!” I laugh as we each enter the room. “Right, I’m gonna go back to my room, see you in a bit” Harry says whilst leaving. “There’s a note on the side for us and a letter for Niall” Liam walks in from the kitchen area; scanning them over. He passes Niall’s to him and reads ours aloud.

Lou, El, Zayn, Liam and Dani, I’ve left tonight while you were at the concert- I didn’t want to have to deal with the goodbyes so I chose to do it this way. I need to sort my head out and have some time alone at the moment. And don’t worry if I don’t reply to any of you if you call or text- I just need to be on my own. I’m sorry. Thanks for everything- hope the concert goes well. Love you all. Jodie. Xx

“Looks like your plan didn’t work well at all” Eleanor says giving me daggers. “I can’t believe it- I didn’t think she’d leave." I turn to Niall who had spaced out and was reading his letter- tears were forming in his eyes.


Niall’s POV:

I burred out the talking from everyone and read the letter;

Niall, I’m so sorry that we didn’t get to say goodbye properly- I didn’t want to deal with the tears and heartbreak. While you read this I’m probably on the plane right now. I do love you but everything’s gotten so complicated lately and I need this time alone to think and sort everything out. Don’t worry about me- I’ll be fine. I’m sorry. I’ll see you soon. Jodie. Xxx


Harry’s POV:

“You in here Jodie?” I call out; it was really quiet in the room; too quiet. I quickly scan each room looking for her but she wasn't in any of them. I check the kitchen area last and find a short letter addressed to me;


Harry, you’re reading this and I’m probably on the plane right now, but I left this evening whilst you were at the concert. I’m sorry I didn’t tell you before but I just didn’t want to deal with all the goodbyes. That apology meant a lot to me and I do forgive you. As for what you told me- I believe you and deep down, I feel the same way, I just never wanted to admit it because everything’s gotten complicated recently and you hurt me. I just need this time alone to think everything through and sort myself out.  I’m sorry. I’ll see you soon. Jodie. Xxx


I read through the letter twice, still not believing what my eyes were telling me. Not letting go of the paper, I ran down the hall to everyone else’s apartment. Frantically, I knock on the door. Liam opens up, “You got a letter too?” he says; pulling me inside.


Zayn’s POV:

Everyone sat in silence. To be honest, I think we were all pretty shocked. None of us thought she’d leave. “I think it’s my fault” Louis blurts out; fiddling with his hands. “Lou, why would it be your fault?” I reply; putting him at ease. “It’s not your fault Lou, she told me last night she was leaving. Except she didn’t tell me it was while we was at the concert” Niall sighs. “No. It is my fault; I’ve been so stupid.” He replies. “Just tell them Lou; you’ll feel much better” Eleanor nudges him.


Louis’ POV:

I drop my head into my hands; shaking it slightly. “I told Paul to put them in that apartment together- hoping they’d sort out their problems and get back together” “But you knew me and Jodie were together?” Niall questions, raising his voice a bit. “I know; I’m sorry Niall. But they go together so perfectly and I couldn’t help but want them together. I saw how much they were both heartbroken and I just” I gave up; not knowing what else to say. “It’s alright Lou- you were only trying to do what you thought was best. It’s not all your fault” Zayn says, “I told her to distance her-self from the pair of them just for a bit, so she could think. I didn’t think she’d take it literally” I rest my head in my hands once again as he finishes talking. “Look, it’s no one’s fault- this was her own decision” Niall says calmly. “You’re not mad?” I look up at him. “No, I can see that you were doing what you thought was best. And yeah, you tried getting them back together whilst knowing we were but I guess” he stops speaking; lowering his head down. “I guess, you’re right”.


Jodie’s POV:

I was now off the plane, finally able to switch my phone on and cure my boredom. Everyone would have read their short letters by now- I wonder what they’re doing. I’m brought out of my little daydream as my phone buzzes and pings; sending all the missed calls and texts through at once.

3 missed calls from Liam, 4 from Danielle, 2 from Niall and the same from Harry. I then look at the texts;

From: Niall                          To: Jodie

Why didn’t you tell me you were going at that time? I wanted to say bye properly, I miss you already xx


From: Harry                        To: Jodie

I wish you had told me you were going. The apartment feels lonely- it’s horrible. I love you Jode.. miss you aswell. xx


From: Danielle                   To: Jodie

Let me know if you’ve landed safely- me and El are really worried x


What part of I won’t answer any calls or texts didn’t they get, I laugh to myself as I think of it. I decide to reply to Danielle’s message so they could at least know I’m safe.


Danielle’s POV:

To: Danielle                         From: Jodie

What part of I won’t answer your calls and texts do any of you not get?! Haha. I’m fine- landed safely, nearly home now. See you when you get back :) x

“Jodie text back!” I grin, “She said ‘what part of I won’t answer your calls or text didn’t any of us get’? I start laughing. “She landed safe and she’s nearly home". I tell the others putting everyone's mind at rest.
