49. Chapter 42

Liam's POV

"Hey Carter!" Niall chimed. "Morning!" Zayn smiled and ring of hellos and morning burst out. But I said nothing. Ever since we got back I haven't spoken even one word direct word to Carter. Sure, there were hey or what's here and there but I never really paid attention to her. I couldn't. I would never, ever, forgive myself. I couldn't even bring myself to face her...

She had to sit by me but then again it was the only seat left at the island and that was with Zayn and Harry not sitting. So it was me, Carter, Niall and Louis sitting at the island as Harry cooked away. He had gave Niall three pancakes first and he had already eaten two before Carter got down. I had mine and Louis and Zayn were eating. Harry had already ate because everytime he cooks breakfast he eats before we get down.

"My pleasure to serve you Mrs. James!" he laughs and sets the plate in front of Carter. She smiles slightly but stares at the plate of fresh, warm pancakes. Zayn cakes it in syrup and adds some whip cream to the top.

She picks up the fork but still doesn't hesitate to pick up a bite.

"You hungry Carter?" Harry breaks the silence and we all stare at her. I can tell it makes her uncomfortable.

"Uhh, Not really." she lies and I see straight through it. "C'mon Carter! Eats some..." Niall moves to her side and presses her on.

"For me?" he smiles his cheeky smile at her and she just stares at the plate.

"For me too?" Louis chimes in and then Zayn. "C'mon!" Harry gets into it and Im the only one left. She eyes me...

"Liam can I talk to you?" she takes my hand. I don't have time to resist because she's leading me down the hall to the same room the captain had taken her to. It was Louis's fathers old office. It had mostly been cleared but some things still remained.

"What's wrong with you?!" the pain in her voice comes out easily and I shut the door.

"What do you mean?" I know exactly what she means but I really don't feel like talking about it. Because talking about it brings back memories and memories are the things that I've been desperately trying to avoid. There the ones that have given me a few nightmares and I really don't want to bring them up at all.

"You know what I mean! It wasn't your fault for the last time!" her voice rises to a shout and I close it with my hand. She pries it away and pushes it down by my side.

"Yes it was! Carter I didn't have to!" I defended.

"No you had to! You would be dead now!" she shouted but I didn't bother to cover her mouth.

"Yea but I wouldn't be regretting every moment that night..." I pointed out and she sighed.

"Liam, Im glad you did it." her voice had lowered greatly and she stood there.

"What?!" I was in disbelief. What did she mean?! What about Louis?! No! He likes her! I wouldn't do that to him!

"I mean Im glad, maybe I did hate it, but I now realize that I saved you life and you saved mine in a way..." she shrugged and I took in what she was saying.

"Look, I know it was a force but they would have killed you! You would be dead! That would be one less person helping me get through this! One less person in my life! One less person that I love!" she shouted and I didn't care. I pulled her in for a hug and her arms clung to me. Her tears fell and I held her fragile body close.

"I love you Carter!" I smiled down at her even though she wouldn't see it. "I love you too!" she looked up. "Like brother..." she added and slightly smiled. "Like sister," I laughed and picked her up.

"You'll alright?" Louis asked as we came out. I knew they were all listening because they stood oddly in the middle of the hallway.

"Yea... Im going to get this mascara off..." Carter said and ran upstairs to clear away the smeared mascara
