Rae’s POV

Niall pulled me down next to him and his girlfriend. The table was set filled with paper plates and plastic cups, probably best. I poured myself a cup full of lemonade, everyone else had alcohol except from Louis.

“You not much of a drinker?” Niall asked.

I shook my head, after everything I never will be. It destroyed my dad, my mum and my entire family. Sure drink takes away some of the pain, makes you feel good for that short while, but the lasting effects are ghastly.

“I’m Rae” I looked at the girl he was next to.

She lifted her head and gave me a warm smile, showing her dimple on her cheek “I’m Alina.”

Alina that’s it! Louis sat down opposite me next to Harry and poured himself a cup of coke. Harry eyed him suspiciously before looking at me, “so what did you do to stop Louis from drinking?”

I wasn’t sure if his tone was directed as an insult or a compliment so I shrugged.

“Shouldn’t we wait for Kelly?” Louis changed the subject trying not to laugh.

“I’m sure she’ll survive” Niall rolled his eyes.

“Kelly’s cool guys” Harry defended her.

Everyone else at the table knew otherwise but decided not to correct him on it. After all from tonight I can see why no one would want to get on the wrong side of him.

Kelly arrived not long after wearing a black dress clung to her body, showing off her small stomach. She looked around the table before her eyes landed on the seat next to me, she sighed before sitting down.

“So Rae how are you finding London?” she asked sweetly.

“It’s fine” I said coldly.

“That’s good we should hang out some time.”

Is she being serious right now?

I decided not to answer and moved away from the table into the garden. The garden was beautiful in this light, the lanterns creating a glow on the grass.

Kelly soon joined me and her expression changed to disgust, nothing like the ‘sweet’ Kelly I’ve just witnessed.

“You could at least act like you like me” she spat.

“Why? I’m not a liar.”

“Why are you here?” she asked.

“I was invited?”

“But can’t you see no one wants you? Harry hates you, Selena see’s you as competition for Louis, you make everyone here sick.”

These pointless words shouldn’t affect me but they have. The sinking feeling I had in my stomach haunted me for the rest of this conversation.

She noticed the dreaded look on my face as I sat there solemnly so she continued “Harry will change Louis I promise you that. Louis will have had enough of you and then you will be left with no one.”

“Why are you such a bitch?” I hissed.

“Because I am, people like you deserve people like Stuart not Louis.”

People like me, what makes her any better than me?

“You don’t like Stuart?”

“God no” she cringed.

I wasn’t sure if she was lying to protect her own dignity and she really did like Stuart, or if she was telling the truth and using him for sex. Both options disgusted me.

Harry came outside in search for Kelly.

“You alright?” he asked her.

She smiled and nodded. I looked down at the ground and kept my mouth shut.

“Come inside” he smiled at her as she got up and embraced him.

Once she was out of sight Harry approached me “you okay?”

I nodded.

He sighed and sat down next to me “I’m sorry for being an ass.”

I shrugged.

“You’re not going to talk to me?”

This was nothing personal but I think if I tried to speak I would end up crying, so it was best to say nothing at all.

He sighed and left me alone.

The rest of the night I kept myself to myself. Louis was having a good time and I wasn’t going to ruin that for him. Selena pulled me up and took me into the living room where everyone else was.

“We’re going to the shop want anything?”

“I’ll come?” Louis stumbled up.

She pushed him back down “no we’ve got this.”

Once we were outside she took a long look at me before opening her mouth. “Something is wrong.”

The tears I had kept released and spurted from my eyes. She wrapped her arms around me and rubbed my back.

“What is it Rae?” she asked sweetly.

“I don’t want to talk about it” I cried.

She sat me down on the wall “well tough what is it?”

I looked up at her my vision blurry “why do you care?”

“You are so focused on the negative Rae that you can’t see people actually care about you. Louis for instant do you know how much he cares about you?”

I shrugged remembering what Kelly said Harry will turn him against you.

“I’ve never seen him like that before, he looks at you like you are the only person on this planet.”

“I know he loves me” I admitted, he loves me too much.

“And me? I like you Rae. You are real, no fake nonsense I’m so sick and tired of people pretending to be someone they’re not.”

“I pretend.”

“Why?”

“Because if people knew what I felt, if people knew what I wanted they wouldn’t be anywhere near me.”

“How do you know?”

“Because the people who knew me left me, bullied me, hurt me.”

“But did they know you I mean really?”

I shrugged “no one could ever understand.”

“Have you spoken about this to Louis?”

“I used to speak to him a lot, he was the only person who understood me… But now it’s different.”

“Why?”

“Because I can’t let him know how sad I am, how every day is a struggle.”

“But that’s just you being paranoid Rae, he would do anything for you.”

“I know he would” I whispered. That was the problem.

~ ~ ~ ~

I awoke to Louis crying hysterically, his arms reached out for something to hold. My body froze at the sight of him, he was scared.

“Louis” I whispered.

“No” he shouted.

“Louis” I said loud enough for him to wake up.

Sweat formed on his head he looked around aimlessly before his eyes landed on me.

“Rae” he choked.

He grabbed me and held me tightly in his arms as he cried into my shirt.

“What is it Lou?”

“Just a nightmare” he tried to smile.

“Do you want to talk about it?”

He shook his head “I’ve got you that’s all I want.”

He was never going to tell me, I knew it and so did he.

“Was it about your sister?” I asked cautiously.

His eyes widened as he pushed me away from him “what?”

I repeated myself “was it about your sister?”

“How…”

“It doesn’t matter how or even why but was it?”

“You don’t need to know about that.”

“Why?”

“Because…”

“So what you can know everything about me but I can’t know about you?” I snapped.

“It’s not that it’s a time of my life I don’t want you to know about.”

“I want to know everything Louis, the good, the bad, the past, the future.”

He shook his head.

“Unbelievable” I growled staggering up from the bed.

“Rae wait” he called out.

“Leave me alone.”
