Tell Me A Lie (Sequel to Save You Tonight)

Will Nat and Louis ever get the chance to just be happy? Or will Jack tear them apart?

6 Months Later...

Packing my case, my mind was working a million miles an hour. Normally I was buzzing when we were going on tour but this time was different. Jack had been sending us threatening letters for the past three months, police can’t prove it’s him so nothings been done to stop it. I didn’t wanna leave my family knowing that he was out there and knows where we live. Nat being the person she is, has told me over and over that her and the kids will be fine. Her soothing words just aren’t enough. She’s three months pregnant too which scares me even more. I don’t want any of them to get hurt. And me gone means they’re wide open to his mind games. I’d had nightmares of what he may do to them with me out of the way. It was horrible.

I’d begged her to go stay at my Mum’s in Doncaster, get her away from here but she won’t. “Louboo... you okay?” Nat asked softly, standing in the doorway.

“No, I’m about to leave my family when there’s a monster on the loose.” I snapped back.

“Louis for god sake stop it! You’ve not once asked me how I feel about all of this, all you ever go on about his how you’re feeling. It affects all of us y’know. The kids more than anything.”

I slumped onto the bed. “I know, I’m sorry. I’m just scared I won’t have anyone to come home to. He’s cool and calculated.”

“Louis believe me when I say we’ll be fine! I know what his kind are like.” She paused, taking a deep breath. “There’s gonna be someone here, all the time.”

“What do you mean?” I asked puzzled.

“A police officer, is gonna be with us all the time, posing as a nanny, helping me out whilst you’re away.”

A smile appeared on my lips. “Why didn’t you tell me sooner?” I asked hugging her.

“I wanted it to be a surprise, give you that bounce in your step for you leaving.” She replied smiling.

I kissed her passionately, leaning her back on the bed.”Louis we can’t, the kids.”

“Ssshhhh you’ll just have to be quiet.” I kissed her again and she warmed to it this time. I smiled as it became deeper, feeling almost like a huge weight had been lifted off of my shoulders.

The morning after...

The kids woke us up really early, Josie told Alex off for jumping too near Nat’s stomach. She was so protective of the little bump, made us laugh. We reluctantly dragged ourselves outta bed, ignoring the need to sleep and concentrating on the children. The ‘nanny’ was due to arrive around 10 this morning, I was happy I got to meet her before I left at 11. “You all packed babe?” Nat asked over breakfast.

“Yep, double checked this time as well so hopefully won’t forget anything.” I said laughing. I had a habit of leaving things behind and they were always essential too. Last time it was my toothbrush so it’s things I shouldn’t forget.

“Gonna miss you Daddy!” Josie said, leaning over and kissing me.

“I’ll miss you more!” Alex added, sticking his tongue out.

“Now now I think Mummy and bump will miss me the most.” I smiled.

The doorbell went and on autopilot Nat got up to answer it. I prayed it wasn’t Jack but ignored my instinct to follow.

“Louis, Alex, Josie this is Kimberley. She’s gonna be staying for a while.”

I got up and held my hand out for it to be shaken. “Hello everyone.” She said, a warm smile. The kids were a little nervous,  but her smile seemed to calm them.

“Thank you for staying whilst I’m away.” I said with a smile.

“No problem, safety is key and I understand your concerns completely.”

It felt even better knowing she understood our point of view. I felt ready to go on tour now, I knew deep down in my gut that they’d be safe with this woman. A beep outside alerted me that it was time to go. I gave the twins a big squeeze, kissing them softly. Their goodbyes warmed my heart to the core.

I pulled Nat into my arms and kissed her softly. “Be safe baby! I love you lots.”

“You too!” We kissed again, a little more passionate. “Bye Louboo!”

“Bye everyone!” With that I left and for the first time in months I felt like I could sorta relax and know everything’s gonna be fine.
