Remember Your Promise -Complete-

“Remember when you left without saying goodbye?” he asked.
“Yes” I replied sadly, remembering it like it was yesterday.
“Promise me you’ll never do it again.”
“I promise”

**KC and Aubrey are best friends and go to London to stay with KC's aunt and celebrate her 18th birthday. What happens when she runs in to an old friend? Does meeting him once again bring back her past sadness or clash with her happy future?**
First Movella...excited!


41. Broken


“Where’s Liam?” Aubrey asks. “He’s spending the next couple hours with Dani. We won’t get another break until Monday” Louis sighs. “Monday?” I look towards Niall and he sadly nods. I hold him a bit tighter, not wanting to let him go. The boys still have another two hours until they have to leave, and now that I know I won’t see them for a few day, I’m going to make them last. We’re all in the living room watching a film. I’m cuddled up with Niall with Josie by my side, she’s leaning on me but I don’t mind. Aubrey is on the other side of Josie, with Zayn sat on the floor in front of her while she plays with his hair. Louis is sat next to Zayn on the floor and Harry and Caroline are on the ‘two seat’ couch.

To be honest, I don’t know why she’s even here. I’m pretty sure she has other friends that she can hang out with. As the movie comes to an end Louis decides to get ready and so does Zayn. Harry goes into the kitchen to grab a bite to eat before they leave, which is in the next hour and thirty. Josie sits up and looks towards Caroline and then back at me with sad eyes. I feel bad because I see it too, she’s alone. Josie had told me that she and Caroline went to high school together, which wasn’t that long ago because school just let out. They didn’t have classes together so didn’t talk to each other much. “So, Caroline. How has your summer been so far?”Josie asks. “Fine. And yours?” “Great!” It fell into an awkward silence shortly after that. Josie forgives people easily and believes in second chances, right now I’m going to try.

“Uh, Caroline? I believe that I was being a bit unfair to you yesterday. So if you want to re-try that apology, I’m all ears.” I sweetly said. She smiled, as if she’d been waiting for this moment. I left from my couch to hers to hear her apology. We both turned to face each other. “Karmen, I’m sorry for everything I have ever done to you. The truth is I was sort of jealous of you. Immediately after you joined our school, you became so well known. I never meant to be so mean, and now that I look back on it, I was an idiotic child. I’m glad you’re happy now. I see that you’re still scarred from the past and I’m sorry, but I see that you are stronger than you were yesterday. I-I just didn’t know how to handle things back then, I didn’t have the friends that you had, no one could help me. I know it’s too late to mend the wounds I caused upon you but know that I always admired you…even though I had a crappy way of showing it. I know this probably won’t mean anything after all these years but I’d do anything to take it back.”

By the time she finished I had stray tears staining my cheeks. I looked over to Josie in disbelief, she wore a wide grin. Niall and Aubrey were just waiting for me to say something back. I turned back to Caroline; she also had her emotions spilling. I hugged her, tight. I was glad she hugged me back, showing that she reciprocated the feeling. “Apology accepted.”

We spent about ten minutes joking around in the living room. Zayn and Louis had finished getting ready and joined us in the living room. I was a bit thirsty; I asked if anyone wanted a drink before I left to the kitchen. Everyone said no but I wasn’t surprised when Niall called after me, “Can you make me a sandwich!”  I laughed, “You’re lucky I’m nice.” “And beautiful” he countered. I giggled and turned my attention back to the kitchen, I was a bit surprised to see Harry standing at the sink. I honestly forgot he was here. Even though I accepted Caroline’s apology, I’m still upset to think that Harry and her…slept together. It gave me the chills. I was even madder because he knew how I felt about her, and they apparently knew each other and not just from middle school. “I heard you and Cara makeup” he mumbled as I passed him and opened the fridge, getting a drink and condiments for a sandwich. I sighed, “Yeah.”  “Are you gonna talk to me now?” “I don’t know.” “But you sai-…” “I said, after YOU explain to me why she’s here. So far, you haven’t told me anything and I still don’t know why she’s here.” He fell silent. He was hiding something from me and I just don’t know what.

Harry was drying his hands as I was making Niall’s sandwich. I saw something shine in the corner of my eye. I look towards Harry and see a very thin neck chain and something hanging off it. I turn to him and point, “What’s that?” He turns to me, “My ring.” “Why don’t you take it off?” I mumbled. “Because I made a promise” he sternly spoke. Ugh! That made me mad. “Why are you still wearing it?” I harshly spoke. “Why are you still wearing yours?” he challenged, obviously getting angry. I could feel some heat rise to my neck and face as we stared at each other. I mentally cursed him. I reached up to mine and ripped it off my neck, “They don’t mean anything anymore!”

No One’s POV(Third Person):

And just like that, a promise was broken. A promise that was held by a weakened necklace and worn by a broken girl. The promise that kept her Karmen. She thought it would break her free from that girl but in the moment that that promise left her damaged skin, she broke. The boy in front of her suddenly became a stranger, as if the promise was the only thing keeping him in her thoughts. There she stood, with the used-to-be bond in her hand. Her eyes locked on it as it slid from her bane palm and clattered onto the wooden floor. The sound it made, a symbol of ‘it’s over’. She looked up to him, his eyes locked on her face in despair.

She’s given up. She’s done…his fallen angel. She wasn’t weak, he thought, she was lost. He would’ve never done that. He loved her…he loves her, with all his heart. To see her give up, it broke him.

“Karmen…” he spoke quietly.

“That’s not my name” she spat.

“Karmen, please…” he pleaded, pulling her into his arms.

“Stop calling me that!” she shouted, weakly pounding on his chest. Desperate for him to let go but eventually calming down in his arms.

As he held his cracked porcelain doll in his arms, he looked behind her and onto the floor. There it laid, their collapsed covenant.


I shook my head, “No…no” I protested, pushing away from him and storming from the kitchen. I passed a ‘worried-looking’ Josie on my way to the stairs. She grabbed my hand but I pulled it back before going upstairs.

Josie’s POV:

What happened? Why was she upset? I saw Harry in the kitchen, where Karmen had came from. I walked to him and turned him around to face me. “What happened?” He was quiet, “I love her.” His eyes flicked to the floor, I followed his gaze and saw Karmens promise ring on the floor. I searched his eyes, trying to find a response, an answer. “What did you do?” I whispered in disbelief. He still didn’t answer. I left him in the kitchen and went upstairs to find Karmen.


I shut the door to Niall’s room behind me, trying not to slam it because Lux is asleep. I turned around to walk further into the room…she wasn’t asleep. Great. She had a ‘fussy’ expression on her face. I lie on the bed and let her cuddle into me so she’d fall back asleep. She hadn’t even closed her eyes when Josie came walking into the door. “Tell me what happened” she insisted, sitting at the foot of the bed, looking up to Lux and I. I sighed, “I’m done.” “What do you mean ‘done’? With your promise?” She spoke pointing to my now non adorned chest. I nodded. “No…you’re not” she confirmed. I gave her a ‘WTH’ look. “Karmen, you made a promise and just like Harry, you were meant to keep it.” I shook my head and brought Lux closer to me so she’d be warm. “I know you don’t want to hear this but that boy… that boy loves you.” I let a tear fall from my eye and sniffled. “I’m going to leave know but I want you to think about what kind of promise you made…and how important it was to be kept.” Then she left. I got out my phone and put my headphones in a played ‘Count on Me’ by Bruno Mars. I softly sang along.

Harry’s POV:

I feel… nothing. Actually, I’m hurt. I need to see her and apologize. For what, you ask? For anything, anything that’ll make it better again. I’ll admit to anything just to have her talk to me again and forgive me for whatever I did. “What’s up?” Niall asks passing me in the kitchen. “N-nothing, I need to speak with Karmen.” “Is there something wrong with her?” his concern increasing. I just shook my head and went to Niall’s room. I figured she’d be in here. I slowly opened the door to see her and Lux cuddled up to each other, she had headphones in her ears and she was sleeping. I slowly walked into the room, making sure not to wake neither her nor Lux. I removed the headphones from her ears and placed her phone gently on the bedside table. I grab a blanket and lay it over her and Lux. I leaned down to Karmen, “I love you, Karmen” I whispered before placing a kiss at the corner of her eye. I know it’s wrong but I can’t help it.

Niall’s POV:

I was walking down the hallway and towards my room to check on KC. I stopped when I saw Harry already in there. I hid and peeked into the room to see what he was doing. I don’t know why I was hiding, I just felt like it. I was in awe when I heard him say he loved her and kiss at her eye. He loves her?

A/N: I almost cried reading this chapter. I'm such a whimp
