Truly, Madly, Deeply

Being Louis Tomlinson's half-sister can be quite hard. Steph Tomlinson, Louis' half-sister, realizes that when her parents divorced when she was 7, and when her mom died of cancer when she was 13, that life goes on even though you have no one. When she moved to London to move on about her past life, she meets Niall Horan and they fall deeply in love. Will Steph be happy again?


30. The Funeral

Niall's P.O.V

A few days had past, and today is Steph's funeral. I was in shock. It all happened too fast. I can't believe that she passed away a few days ago. I feel like I'm gonna collapse. This is too much for me to take in. It's quite hard concentrating, nevertheless, standing itself is hard. I have a headache, and grabbed a water bottle. I drank the whole bottle, and I felt a little relieved. Even though it was hard for me to comprehend with the things going on around me, I still managed to get dressed, and hurry my ass up there. I was mourning for the past few days. I just can't do this. I'm trying so hard not to let some tears escape from my eyes. I just can't do it. I gave in, and started crying. I saw the cemetery where everyone is starting to arrive to, and I wiped up my tears, got out of the car, and proceeded like nothing happened. I have the letter that Steph gave me before she past. I looked for Harry, and gave him his envelope. I was also looking for Louis, but he was no where to be found. I asked Harry where he went, but he didn't know, so I looked for him myself. I eventually found him when it was time to start the ceremony. After the priest was done talking, he invited Louis to talk first, and started his speech.


"Hello everyone. Family members, friends, and visitors. When Steph past away, I was in mourning. Still am actually. I was hurt. She was a great person that had to go too soon. She was a big part of my life, and I will never forget her. Before the ceremony started, I was given a letter from Niall. He had told me that the letter was written by Steph the night before she past. I was asked to read this out loud, so I will."


"Dear Louis, Steph here. You helped me every step of the way. Through my childhood, and through my teenage years, and almost through my adulthood. I suffered the way my mom did. The pain is taking over me. The disease is eating me alive. I don't wanna go yet, but sadly, I have to. My mom is calling me from up there, and I can hear her. You are one of the most brave people I have ever met. If I haven't met you, I wouldn't have had a great life. So remember, cherish every moment in life before its all gone. You may never know where your next step will take you. Lots of love, Steph."

Louis walked down, and had a seat. I stood up, and it was now Harry's turn to deliver his speech.


"As we all know, Steph passed away a few days ago. Before she died, I had a chance to talk to her. She never told me she was gonna die in a few days though. Steph and I haven't known each other for so long, but all I can say about her, is just that she's really really brave. One of the bravest people I've met, and it's such an honor to have met an uplifting person like her."


"Dear Harry, Thank you so much for all your help and support. You are one of the most amazing people I have ever met. When no one was there, you had the courage to talk to me. You helped me through my ups and downs, and if I haven't met you, I would've gave up. Thanks once again for giving me the opportunity to meet you. Just keep doing what you're doing, which is making people happy, because I was one of the people who you made happy. Once again, thank you for the lovely experience. Love, Steph."

Some people were in tears after Harry's speech. It is now my turn to deliver my speech, and before I started, I had a drink of water. There was a lump in my throat, and it hurts, but I carried on anyways.


"Hello everyone. We are gathered here today to rekindle our final moments with the lovely Stephanie Tomlinson. I, as well, was given a letter from Steph. I was actually the person who was asked to give it to Louis and Harry. As much as it hurts to say good bye, unfortunately, we have to."


"Dear Niall, I will never ever forget you. You have made me the happiest girl in the entire world. We had ended our short relationship due to a few issues. It went by so fast didn't it? One day, we were playing video games at your house, laughing for we have lost the game, and in that moment, I realized that I want to spent my whole life with you. I can't bear to say that I'll forget you, because it makes my heart hurt even more to say that, or to even think that. You know, you were my first boyfriend, my first heartbreak, and my last for both of those. You're the guy that made me realize everything. You showed me what love is, and I couldn't thank you enough for the times you made me feel safe and protected. I have attached another letter for you, and you're gonna have to read that on your own time. Thank you so much Niall. Love you forever and always, Steph."

I walked down to my seat, and watched the rest of the ceremony as people gave their speeches. After that, the priest made a final blessing of Steph, and she was then buried. Most of the people that attended were crying. Louis and Harry were crying too. As everyone started to leave, I took a look at the other letter that Steph told me to read on my own time. Harry left with bloodshot eyes as the tears were streaming down his face. Louis gave me a pat on the back, and him and Eleanor left. I was the only one left there. I looked at Steph's name engraved on the tombstone. It read "Stephanie Nicole Tomlinson -- 1993-2013 -- A loving daughter and a sister." This made my eyes sting with tears, as I let it all out. Crying until I couldn't breath properly. I read the letter, and sat on the grass.


"Dear Niall, I'm sorry for everything that I caused. I didn't know that it was gonna end up like this. I didn't even knew for a fact that we were gonna break up. It just hurts me. I moved to LA after our break up, and I tried moving on. I succeeded, yet failed too. I succeeded, because I never really was thinking of you the whole time, but at the same time, I still loved you. I will never ever let you go. I'm sorry that it had to end like this. Please tell your parents that they don't have to worry about me anymore. I'm gone now. Putting that thought on, I just want you to do a little favor for me. Just one favor. Please find someone, and love her unconditionally. Never stop loving her. Love her like how you loved me. I know there's a lot of girls chasing you everyday, but please, just find a girl, fall in love with her, and marry her, so that you can spend your whole life with her. Have a family. A lovely family. As what we would always joke about, you would name your first son Liam, and your lovely daughter Jessica. I picked the name Jessica. You said you loved it. Pplease do those things for me. And remember, I'll never forget you. You made my life complete, and without you, I wouldn't have been that bubbly person I am. Please never stop doing what you're doing. You're not only making your family, friends, and Ireland proud, but you're also making me proud. I love you no matter what. And please, don't cry all your life about me. I'm not that important. Thank you once again for the lovely journey you gave me. Through ups and downs, I'll love you forever. Lots of Love, Steph."

I finished the letter and started talking. "Steph, I can't promise you that I'll love someone else after this. I'll always love you." I gathered myself, and left. Steph was one of those girls who never really liked herself, so forevermore, I'll love her.
