I Knew You Were Trouble

Ella Thorpe and Louis Tomlinson have been best friends since they had been born. Ella's Mum and Dad work on tours so when she was 16 she moved in with Louis' family whilst her parents and sister travelled on the road. When Louis brings the rest of One Direction home after their time on The X Factor, Ella and Harry develop a crush for one another. Louis notices this and tries to prevent it from happening as he knows Harry's womanizing ways. Will Louis support them when Harry and Ella make it official?

4. More Than This

Louis' P.O.V

I walked over to her and slung her over my shoulder before walking out of the door.

"Louis, put me down!" She screeched in my ear

"No can do, my mum's gonna wanna hear about this." I smirked.

"Lou, put me down and give me that jumper." She demanded.

I realised what she meant. She didn't want my um to see her hair and I was holding a hoodie, which would help her hide her hair.

"Ella, my Mum is gonna see your hair sooner or later so it might as well be now." I pointed out.

She groaned and I carried her to the car and fastened her seat belt. I then dialled my mum's number and put it on loudspeaker. Climbing in my side of the car, I turned the ignition and sped off towards home.

I was almost home when my mum finally picked up.

"Lou, where are you?" She frantically asked.

"I'm fine. Don't worry, Mum. I had to pick Ella up. In fact she wants to speak to you." I grinned at Ella.

"No, I don't!" She shouted, slurring her words.

"Ella Toni Thorpe! Are you drunk?" I heard my mum shout down the phone.

"Yes, she is, Mum. She was at Sugar 'n' Spice. Come home, she has something to show you." I answered for her.

"Me and you are having words, young lady!" the line then cut off.


Ella's P.O.V

I was so annoyed at Louis flippin' Tomlinson right now! I can't believe he told Johanna I was drunk and he was making me show her my died hair.

Actually, now that I think about it, it's not so bad after all. He's the one that caused it. That's the whole point of dying your hair, isn't it? To show it off. Yeah, it is!

"Look, I'm sorry about earlier, Elz, but my mum deserves to know. Why did you even do this?" Louis asked and I could hear the concern in his voice as we pulled up on the drive.

"You." I answered.

"Me? What did I do?" He questioned.

"All my life you made me do the right thing, but you've watched Twilight: Eclipse and Jessica's speech is completely true! You've got to make some wrong decisions in life! Dating harry won't be one of them, though!"

"I don't understand. That is a wrong decision. What he hell are you talking about? Over my dead body will that happen!" He retorted.

"It's not, Louis! I really like Harry and I feel a special connection there but you're stopping me from discovering what that is. I need to feel good for once in my life!" I yelled at the top of my voice.

The driver in the car next to ours stared at me, taking in the mascara running down my cheeks. Johanna!

"Ela, I'm sorry. Don't do this." Louis' voice broke out and I saw tear after tear fall out of his now red eyes.

"Give me one good reason not to!" I dared him.

"Johanna, Danielle, your mum and you dad. For your best friend." He whispered the last part

"I don't have a best friend anymore." I spat at him and climbed out of the car, slamming the door.

I heard Louis doing the same. Hearing him sob made me want to turn around, comfort him and go back to the old Ella but I just couldn't. Johanna met us at the door but I just ran past her, up the stairs and into my room.

That's when I broke down. I collapsed on my bed and cried my heart out. I was so hurt that I just ignored the door open and close. Whoever it was stayed with me the whole night. Well at least the part I was awake for.

When I woke the next morning, I found El looking at me in concern.

"Ella, what happened with you and Lou?" She asked, all of a sudden smiling at me.

"I don't wanna talk about it." I mumbled.

"Ok. Do you wanna come to McDonalds with me?" She questioned, again smiling.

I felt the exact opposite to she did. Sad; she clearly was happy. I wonder why?

"Sure but only if we can go through the window," She looked at me weirdly when I replied, "I don't wanna have to explain this to Johanna at the moment." I laughed playing with my hair.

She just nodded and I went to take a shower, pinning my hair up so that not very much dye would come out (I used wash in-wash out). I then applied dye to the bits that had got a bit wet. When I walked in the room I saw that El had got my outfit ready. It was a white top with a leopard on the front which was longer at the back. El paired this up with a pair of black leggings and black converse. I walked over to my chest of drawers and pulled out the black underwear set that I had brought while I was shopping with Kate, a friend from school.

I put my clothes on and then asked El for a favour, "El, can you do my make up for me? I really can't be bothered.

She nodded in response. Once she was finished, I looked in the mirror and thanked El as she did such an awesome job.

I grabbed my black clutch (it still had my money and phone in from last night) an we both climbed out of the window. I got into my blue seat leon and El repeated my action. I then started the car and drove to the nearest McDonalds..

When I walked into the fast food restaurant, I saw Louis, Johanna and the other boys sitting at a table so I sprinted off in the direction.

I didn't stop running until I reached my little park. It wasn't really a park, but it was my special place. It had a little lake with a bridge leaning over it and there was a large field area. I wished that one day, I would come here with my children.

I heard footsteps but decided to ignore it.

"I saw you run and followed you. I thought you might need some company." a British accent spoke.


Author's Message:

So who do you think it is. I'll give you a clue: it's one of the boys.

Anyway, I'm gonna tell you everything in numbers because I can't be bothered to do it any other way. Haha


1. In 'One Thing' Louis told Ella that Harry was a player. I don't think he is but I had to look at him in a negative way because Louis doesn't like the idea of Harry and Ella as a couple. I completely disagree with you if you think Harry is a player. He's actually my favourite. ;)

2. I got the park idea from the story 'Forever Young'. It's a really good book about a 16 year old girl who gets pregnant after having sex with her boyfriend. After losing their child, Ava, Harry and the girl are devastated. Please read it it's amazing. I promise.

3. I've decided that if I don't get any entries for the competition by the 16th of June, me and my friend are going to just make up a character or we're going to use Kate as our girl. Kate is the girl that was mentioned earlier on in the chapter. I still think it would be better to use a reader of this book but that is the new deadline.

4. I was listening to my favourite song by One Direction (She's Not Afraid) while I was writing this. What's your favourite song?

5. I don't know when I'll next be able to update but I'll try to tomorrow. I'm really busy: Tomorrow - Cinema (Fast and Furious 6, yay!)   Friday - My friend's coming round   Saturday - I'm going round my friends for her bday party. But I'll definitely be able to update on Sunday, sorry. 

6. Finally, if you have anything that you think I could make better please tell me and I'll try my best to make it right.

- Ella T
