37. The Hardest Goodbye

I sat in the lounge of the bus, watching a movie with Liam. The bus door opened and Miranda and Harry walked on laughing.
 
“We’re back!!!” Miranda shouted, grinning.
 
“Are you two…?” I asked.
 
“Yes Miranda Carter is my girlfriend.” Harry grinned.
 
“Finally!!!” I smiled.
 
“Is everyone else sleeping?” Miranda asked.
 
“No. El and Louis are doing something. Perrie and Zayn are out. Niall took Emily somewhere.” I told them.
 
“So it was just you two on this bus?” Harry smirked.
 
“Yes Harry. It was just me and Beth on this bus.” Liam told him.
 
“What did you two do?” Miranda asked, her eyebrows raised.
 
“We watched movies. Why? What did you think we did?” I asked.
 
“Oh nothing.” Miranda smirked.
 
“Oh my god Mir. You are like the girl version of Harry.” I groaned.
 
“Problem?” She asked.
 
“Nope. Harry is a dope though.” I told her.
 
“I am not!” Harry whined.
 
“Yes you are Harry.” Liam grinned.
 
“Whatever. We are going to sleep.” Harry told us.
 
-The next morning-
 
It was official. All the boys had girlfriends. Niall had asked Emily last night and she happily accepted. We all sat in the lounge eating breakfast. My phone began to ring. I picked it up and it was Simon.
 
“Hey Simon.” I said.
 
Every ones attention turned to me.
 
“Elizabeth, how are you?” He asked.
 
“I’m great. How are you?” I asked.
 
“Quite well. We have a problem though.” He told me.
 
“Problem?” I asked.
 
“Management wants your album to be out in a month. There is no choice. I tried to tell them that you were on tour but they want it out in a month.” He told me.
 
“Okay. I’ll just keep writing songs then. I’m working on one right now.” I told him.
 
“That’s where the problem is Elizabeth… you need to come back to London for the remainder of tour.” He told me.
 
The cup that was in my hand dropped.
 
“What?! No Simon! You can’t do this!” I said.
 
“I’m afraid I can’t do anything about it.” He told me.
 
“Simon please. The boys are like my family. You wouldn’t want to take me away from my family would you?” I asked.
 
“Elizabeth, either you come or you give up your record deal.” He told me.
 
 I was silent. “Who would replace me?” I asked quietly.
 
“The old opening act.” He told me. “Or Perrie.”
 
I felt a tear slip down my cheek and Liam pulled me into a hug.
 
“Whats wrong?” He whispered.
 
I held up a finger telling him to wait.
 
“When would I have to leave?” I asked.
 
“Tomorrow night.” He said.
 
“Tomorrow night?!” I almost screamed.
 
“I already booked you onto the flight. You know I would have you stay on tour but I don’t have a say in it.”
 
I got up and walked off the bus. “Simon, have you ever thought how this might effect how Liam performs?” I asked.
 
“Liam will be fine Elizabeth. Be on the plane tomorrow night. Paul will give you the details.” He told me. “Goodbye Elizabeth. See you soon.”
 
I hung up and walked back onto the bus. I sat back down and every ones attention was on me.
 
“What did simon say?” Liam asked.
 
“Hes making me leave tour.” I told everyone.
 
“What?! No! He can’t do that!!!” Liam shouted.
 
“Its not his choice. Management want my album done in a month.” I told everyone.
 
“Pardon my language but that is complete bullshit.” Louis hissed.
 
“I know!” I cried.
 
“When do you leave?” Harry asked quietly.
 
“Tomorrow night.” I mumbled.
 
Liam got up and stormed off the bus. I got up and ran after him. As soon as I caught up with him I pulled him into a hug He buried his head into my shoulder, tears slipping down his cheeks.
 
“A month and a half. A month and a half without you.” He whispered.
 
“You survived two years without me.” I told him.
 
“This is different. I am more in love with you than I have ever been. You are the reason why I wake up with a smile on my face. I love you more than life itself Beth.” He told me.
 
“The month and a half will be over before you know it.” I told him.
 
“I don’t want you to go.” He whispered into my shoulder.
 
“I don’t want to go.” I told him.
 
“I have never hated management more than I hate them right now.” He told me.
 
“Well look at the bright side. You have Chrismas and New Years off.” I told him.
 
“You are coming right?” He asked.
 
“Of course. I wouldn’t miss a second with you.” I told him.
 
-The next day (5:30 pm)-
 
I packed up the last of my stuff and carried my bags out to the front of the bus. Everyone had been in a miserable mood today. I carried my bags out to the car and we all got in. We drove to the airport in silence. When we arrived we got out and I checked my bags in. We walked over to my terminal and I began to say my goodbyes. I went to Zayn first.
 
“Zayn, you and I were not super close but I consider you one of my brothers. It has been amazing being on tour with you and I can never thank you boys enough for changing my life.” I told him.
 
I moved onto Perrie.
 
“Perrie, you are like a sister to me. You never fail to make me laugh with your imitation of a goat. Make sure the boys don’t get into trouble.” I told her.
 
I moved onto Niall. “Niall, you too are like a brother to me. I am going to miss you so much. Try to not eat all the food.” I told Niall.
 
I moved on to Emily. “Em, although you and I have only been on tour with each other for about two weeks, I am going to miss you so much. I’m so glad that you and Niall are finally together. You are like my sister and I will miss you so much.”
 
I moved onto Harry next. “Harry, you are one of my best friends and one of my brothers. I enjoyed our late night talks and our squabble about SpongeBob. I am so glad thet you and Miranda are together. Keep her safe and if you break her hear I will break you. I will miss you so much Styles.” I told him.
 
I moved on to Miranda next. “Mir, you are my sister and my best friend. These past two weeks have been so fun because you were there. You and Harry are perfect for each other. I love you Mir.” I told her.
 
El was next. “El, you have been one of my best friends since you came on tour with us. Calling you up that day was one of the best things I’ve ever done because I got a best friend in the process. Take care of the girls and make sure Louis doesn’t prank anyone too much.” I told her.
 
I moved on to Louis. “Louis, you were there for me since the moment I met you. It was you that pulled my father off of my and practically saved my life. When I was going through a lot with Liam you were there. You are like my best friend and I will miss you so much.”
 
I finally moved onto Liam who had tears in his eyes.
 
“Liam… I have loved you every single day of the 14 years that I have known you. The night in the park was one of the best days of my life. I love you so much Liam. I wish I could spend every day until eternity with you. You are not only my brother, you are my best friend and you are the boy I fell in love with 14 years ago on the first day of primary school. You and I have been through a lot together and a month and a half is not going to make me forget that. Since I came on tour with you, thses days have been some of the best I have experienced. You helped me rise from being a broken abused girl to one who sings in front of millions of fans. I can never thank you enough for that. You are my everything Liam. I love you so much.” I told him.
 
A tear slipped down my cheek and he pressed his lips to mine.
 
Flight 282 from Houston, Texas to London, England will be taking of in 20 minutes.
 
“I love you so much Beth. I mean it when I say I want ot be with you forever.” He told me.
 
“I love you.” I told him.
 
I pulled away from the embrace and looked at the people I call my family.
 
“I will miss all of you so much. The month and a half will fly by faster than you know. I promise.” I told them. “Bye.”
 
I took one last look at them before walking towards the gate.
 
“Beth!” I heard Liam call from behind me.
 
I turned and saw him running over to me. As soon as he reached me he wrapped his arms around me and kissed me passionately.
 
“I love you.” He whispered.
 
“I love you too.” I replied.
 
He let me go and I slowly walked away. As soon as I disappeared onto the plane I felt my eyes stinging with tears. I had just left my life behind to start a new one.
 
***Liam’s POV***
 
I watched her slowly walk into the terminal. The tears slipped down my cheeks but they could not be controlled. I watched the terminal, hoping she would come running out saying it was all a joke. I felt a hand on my shoulder.
 
“Its not like she’s going to be gone forever.” Louis said solemnly.
 
“It feels like forever.” I whispered.
