18. Chapter 17

The words I wanted to say wouldn’t come, they were stuck. I sat frozen staring at him, as if somehow he would explain everything. How could he keep that from me, watching me suffer and say nothing? I don’t care how messed up I have been this week, he shouldn’t have cared.

“Why didn’t you tell me sooner?” I said coldly. I was hurt, by him the one who meant most to me. I wasn’t sure if I wanted him to answer, because I knew no matter what he says it wouldn’t change how I feel right now.

Tears appeared in his eyes and he looked at me without saying anything. He must know what he did was wrong, but I can’t help but feel betrayed.

“I was going to, but Rae I needed to find the right time. You were breaking in front of me, if I told you knowing it could be false hope that would destroy you. Even now I don’t know if I should have kept it to myself.

I stood up “how could you say that he’s my brother not yours” I spat.

He shook his head “I know, but don’t for a second act like I don’t care about him Rae.”

I knew I was being a bitch, but he started it not me. Fighting about this would get us nowhere that’s for sure “what did he say?”

“He didn’t say much only one word actually Louis.”

Whether I was hurt that he chose Louis’ name over mine I’m not sure. It doesn’t matter what he said, the fact he is alive and okay.

“What do we do now?” I asked Louis hoping he would have more of an idea than me.

“Beats the shit out of me” his face softened “together is what I want, is that still an option?” he asked.

Does he really think one mistake could turn me away from him? He has no idea how much I love him and need him.

“What are we like? Always doubting our love for each other” I smiled.

He laughed “us against the world baby”

I pulled him close to me and he wrapped me up in his arms – holding me tightly. My head lent against his chest and he kissed the top of my head. It’s weird to think compared to now things used to be simple, considering how shit things used to be. But I used to have Reiss with me, I had someone else to look after so it wasn’t so bad that I didn’t look after myself. Louis looks after me and I try to look after him, but I can’t help but think we will never get our happy ending.

“I used to believe we would go away together, us and Reiss.”

“That can still happen” he said calmly, even I know he’s talking shit.

“We have to do something about that tweet, has he said anything more?”

He shook his head “just that, he could be anywhere Rae”

I closed my eyes, as much as I tried I couldn’t stop picturing Reiss and mum. Do you think that maybe she’s changed and she loves him? Maybe she treats him like she should have done, like she used to treat me.

“You know there is a party we could go to” I looked up at him.

“Is spending time with just me that awful?” he laughed.

“Of course not, but this won’t work we’re both thinking about him we need to take our minds off it.”

“No drink?” he asked.

“No drink, it was stupid I’m sorry”

“You don’t need to apologise to me Rae, you never have to hide from me.”

“I’m not hiding from you, I hide from myself constantly. I actually care what you think of me”

“I don’t have a bad thing to think about you I assure you that” he stood up and held out his hand. “Let’s go to this stupid party shall we?”

I laughed taking his hand.

Louis and I walked in together hand in hand and I felt proud and happy to be by his side. Stuart was over near Kelly helping her pour the drinks, he deserves so much better.

Louis leaned in close “I’m going to find Harry, catch you in a bit?”

I nodded, he probably knows I will go over to Stuart.

“Stuart” I called out going over to him.

“Wow you actually came thought I was being stood up” he laughed.

I ignored Kelly’s glares “yeah err had a bit of a situation but I’m fine now.”

“I see you came here with Louis” obvious he wasn’t happy about that.

“Look I said the same to him, our friendship has nothing to do with him, our relationship has nothing to do with us deal?”

He rolled his eyes “deal come on let’s get a drink”

“I’m not drinking anymore” I told him.

He laughed “course you’re not, so what do you want?”

“I’ll have an orange juice” I felt like such a sap.

He chuckled nodding his head. Louis was over with Harry and Niall, I’m glad he has them again, really. Stuart passed me my orange juice and sat down opposite me.

“So how are you?” I asked him.

“Shit, Kelly has had me pouring everyone drinks for the past hour” he moaned.

“I don’t know how you put up with her” I grimaced.

“She has a different side to her, something that I’ll stick around for” he shrugged.

But even I who tries to see the best in people couldn’t possibly see a nice side to that bitch. My head began to spin and for a second I thought I was going to pass out. I leaned my hand on the table to steady myself.

“You alright?” he asked.

“Yeah I just feel odd” I rubbed my head and looked around me.

Time seemed to pass by slowly, too slow. Stuarts head doubled and he came closer towards me tilting his head. He pressed the palm of his hand on my forehead.

“Rae you’ve gone really pale” he seemed worried.

I laughed as a buzz swirled around in my stomach “I’m fine.”

I got up from the seat almost knocking into two girls “sorry” I mumbled as I made my way over to Louis.

“Louis” I smiled wrapping my arms around him.

He raised his brow “you promised you wouldn’t drink.”

“I haven’t I had an orange juice” I said honestly.

He looked over at Stuart who was beside me and then back to me unconvinced.

“It’s true she had an orange juice” Stuart said.

“What did you do to her?” Louis spat.

“I did nothing” Stuart shouted. “I would never hurt her Lou, she’s alright.”

“Don’t bullshit me, you haven’t got a caring bone in your fucking body” Louis growled. Harry was by his side pulling my arm so I could balance on him.

“Why are they fighting?” I asked Harry.

“You obviously” he rolled his eyes.

“You don’t like me do you?” I laughed.

He shrugged “I don’t like the way Louis is around you, he’s always sad you make him sad.”

This hit me hard, if I didn’t feel like I had just drunk 2 bottles of vodka I would probably cry. Harry looked at my expression and frowned “he loves you but I don’t know if you are the best thing for him.”

“What and you are? You can’t handle that he cares about someone more than you” I shouted.

“No what pisses me off is that the person he cares about doesn’t give two shits about him” his tone was cold.

“I love him” I cried.

“No-one believes that Rae, no one” he moved away from me.

I stayed in the corner so no one could see me cry. How could someone think that? How could someone doubt my love for Louis? When every bone in my body screams it. Louis and Stuart were still arguing and I had had enough. Liam came up to me and wrapped his arms around me.

“You looked like you needed that” he smiled.

I wiped my eyes “do you think I love Louis?”

“I don’t question it, but I think you have a hard time of showing it.”

I sighed “I love him”

“I know” he said softly.

“Can I ask you a question?”

“Sure” he sat down on one of the free chairs.

“Do you like Nat?”

His expression changed and he seemed uncomfortable “why do you ask?”

“She likes you” I wasn’t being disloyal I wanted her to be happy.

“How do you know that, did she tell you?”

I nodded. Then and only then could I tell he liked her too. I patted him on the back “do something about it, she won’t wait forever” and I left him alone to make an impact.

Louis was obviously shouting at Stuart so I grabbed his arm pulling him away. We both stumbled into the fence as I lost balance.

“Shit Rae” he said agitated.

“I need to tell you something and I need you to listen” I turned around to face him.

“Okay”

“I love you Louis so much, so much it doesn’t feel real. But I do, never question that please you can question your love for me, but never mine for you.”

“Where’s this coming from?”

“Nowhere I just wanted you to know that, now I feel like I’m about to throw up” I turned away from him and threw up the contents of my stomach. Louis held my hair and crouched me down in case I needed to puke again.

“We should never have come lets go home” I told him.

He nodded picking me up and holding me close to his chest.

I must have fallen asleep in his arms as I woke up in bed next to him, “good night” I whispered to him and turned onto my side so I could go to sleep.

“I know” he whispered.

“You know what?” I asked.

“I know you love me, I will never question it” he kissed my nose and settled down next to me.
