Niall had been acting really weird since he got back from getting his phone, all of us had noticed but he kept saying everything was fine. We knew it was a lie but couldn’t get him to admit it. A break in sound check gave me the perfect opportunity to try and talk to him. He disappeared back stage so I followed.

“Niall what the hell is with you?” I asked.

“Nothing.”

“Don’t give me that, we’re not stupid.”

“Look, I’m fine.”

“No you’re not. What happened at the tour bus?”

“Nothing, I just got my phone.”

I sighed. “Is there something going on? Y’know between you and Nat?” My heart rose to the back of my throat waiting for his answer.

“What? Are you kidding me?”

“No, you won’t tell us what happened and something obviously did...”

“Nat had written a letter.” He said in a whisper.

“A letter? For who?”

“You... she loves you.”

“Really?” I asked shocked.

“Yes, I promised her I wouldn’t tell you. But she’s like you, she thinks if she tells you that you won’t be friends anymore. She doesn’t think you see her that way.”

“Oh my...” I sat down, trying to process what I had just heard. Do I go with the original plan?! Or do I leave right now and tell her how I feel?! “Look I’m gonna go, I’m gonna go see Nat.”

Niall broke into a smile. “Go get her dude.” I smiled and disappeared. Would I finally get the girl I’ve always wanted?!

I saw a figure run past the window which I’m sure was Louis but I shrugged it off, it can’t have been him, he was still at sound check. I heard footsteps and a breathless Louis stood in front of me. I laughed. “Lou what are you doing here? Forget something?”

He caught his breath and came and sat opposite me. “Yeah... you.”

“Huh? Me?”

He nodded. “Niall told me about the letter you wrote.” I gulped loudly. “Nat, I love you too. I have for years, I just didn’t wanna lose you by telling you.” He grabbed my hand. “It killed me every time you got a boyfriend or every time some dickhead hurt you because I knew you should be with me. I’d treat you like you deserve. I just wasn’t sure if you felt the same...”

I stood up and walked away. “Louis we can’t do this.”

“Why?” He asked confused.

“Because what if it doesn’t work out? We can’t just go back to being best friends, it’d be too awkward. I want you as a friend for the rest of my life...”

“It wouldn’t not work, we’re perfect for each other can’t you see that?”

I shook my head. “I’m sorry Louis, I really am. I love you, believe me I do but I can’t do this, not now.”

“What are you saying?”

“I’m gonna go home, we need space.”

“Nat, please don’t do this.”

“I already am. I’ll be there when the tours over, just think it’s best for both of us to have some time to think.”

“I don’t need time to think, I need you to be mine.”

“And maybe one day I will be.” I wiped away a stray tear from my cheek and went to grab my case. It pained me to see Louis like this but it was best, we couldn’t do this, not now. It wasn’t the time. I said goodbye to him and kissed him lightly on the cheek. “I’m sorry Louboo.” And walked away.
