30. Life Is Full Of Surprises

El's P.O.V
I hung up the phone call and rushed to get ready. I put on my blue skater skirt white belly top. Spraying on my Chanel perfume, I shouted up the stairs to my sister, telling her I was leaving. I quickly slipped on my black Vans and headed out of the door. 
When I arrived at the door, I bumped into Liam.
"Sorry," I quickly apologized.
"Don't worry," He mumbled.
Great. No one likes me any more. Because I 'broke Louis' heart'.
"Liam, who's at the door..." Ella's voice slowed down as she saw me.
She smiled at me and gave me a quick hug.
"Go round the back if you want. I know it can be a bit embarassing after what happened earlier," She laughed, pulling away from the hug.
I gave her a weak smile and turned to walk around the bag.
"Guys, let's go! I'm not staying 'til late 'cause I'm tired!" I heard Ella shout.
"We all know why that is, don't we, Harry!" Zayn shouted back.
I could just picture Ella standing there, feeling awkward and blushing.
Five minutes later, the door slammed and I heard lots of jokes about Harry getting laid tonight.
"Can you just shut up?!" Ella shouted and their laughing stopped.
I giggled as I walked into the kitchen door, starting to climb the stairs.
What was I supposed to say? I love him but I think we need to take a break for a little while. How do I tell him?
I decided that I'd let him talk first and then talk through the next steps. I hope I don't brake him. I do love him with all my heart but I just need time to think things through.
I knocked timidly on the door. Louis opened the door, grinning madly at me. I replied with a small, sad smile.
"Hi," He continued to smile.
"Hello," Why was I being so formal with him? He's my boyfriend so why do I feel like I have to make a good impression?
"Come in. It feels really weird saying that to you," He pointed to the bed.
I pointed at the door before saying, "It feels really weird knocking on that door.
I laughed lightly before looking at Louis seriously.
"Louis, we need to talk," I watched as his smile dropped.
I rubbed his back gently. How was I going to do this? I can't, I love him. I'll tell him that he hurt me but I'm willing to try again. I knew, all of a sudden, that's what I wanted. That's what I needed.
"Don't worry, we're just going to talk," I felt a sudden urge telling me that I was wrong.

 

Louis' P.O.V
I sat down next to her on the bed.
"Louis, I'm sorry for leaving so abruptly. I love you and I just want to hear you out," El smiled at me, encouraging me to speak.
"I-I love you and it killed me when you left. I'm going to admit that, when I was younger, I had a crush on Ella. When I told her and she turned me down, I learnt to control my feelings. Those feelings soon turned into the past. When I was about fourteen, I watched Ella get crushed be her childhood love. All of a sudden, those feelings for her came back. I knew that I couldn't let those feelings so I couldn't let Ella get close to another," My voice broke so she placed her hand on my cheek and used her thumb to wipe away the tears.
"I guess that I got used to it and I got worse. I soon became jealous so I put Ella under strict rules but I guess I got carried away," I explained.
"Do you still love her, Louis?" El asked me, firmly.
I looked away from her and shook my head.
"Look at me," She lifted my chin up so I was looking into her eyes," Do you still love her, Louis?"
"Yes," I whispered, croakily.
She jumped off the bed.
"Why? Why, Louis? Why tell me you love me and then admit you still have feelings for you TAKEN best friend!" She screamed.
"I don't know," I admitted.
"Louis, we need to take a break," She stormed out of the room.
I wanted to run after her but, for some unknown reason, I couldn't. I collapsed on the bed and cried.
After a while, I drifted into a restless sleep.
