Long Lost Twin

My name is Lizzie, my Mum recently died from cancer so I was forced to live with my aunt. That also meant moving schools and making new friends. I did have a Dad but I never knew him. Mum did, they split when I was born. He took my twin and Mum took me.

31. Chapter 30: Back

“Wanna go out with me?” Ben asked me. It was the end of the week already. I nodded. I had no choice. Jess would kill me if I turned him down. “Great.” He said with a smile and took hold of my hand.

I miss Louis.

I looked over at Jess, she was really happy. I didn’t feel happy, not at all.

I pulled my phone out and text Liam.

Me: Got a boyfriend x

Liam: Is he nice? X

Me: I guess. Talk Later x

I didn’t feel comfortable texting him my feelings right now.

“Nice wallpaper.” Ben noted as he saw my lock screen on my phone. “Is that one of the boys from One Direction?” I nodded.

“Yup,” I replied.

“Is that your ex?” He asked. Oh God.

“Yeah,” I sighed and shot a this-is-all-your-fault look at Jess.

“Wow. Don’t worry, I won’t break your heart like some famous guy.” Ben promised me.

“He didn’t break my heart.” I snapped. I didn’t mean for my voice to come out so harshly.

“Sorry.” Ben apologised.

“Ignore her, she snaps a lot. She’s pissed off he found someone else.” Jess told him. I shot her a I’m-gonna-so-kill-you-later look.

“I’m not pissed off!” I objected but Jess just laughed and rolled her eyes. I stood up and left to go home. Jess was really starting to piss me off now.  

I spent most of the weekend with Ben. He was really nice. By Sunday night, I had stopped thinking about Louis.

Liam: U never told me about ur new boyfriend x

I sighed before replying. Me: Shit. Soz. He’s nice. I just keep comparing him to Louis. X

Liam: It’s normal. He’s a bit upset that u have found some1 tho x

Me: U told him! Y? X

Liam: He saw the text. I got him to read if for me. Soz x

Me: It’s fine, I guess. X

I locked my phone and put it on the table next to my bed.

“Is that Ben?” Jess asked. Her mouth dropped open. I followed her gaze and saw him kissing some other girl. I felt betrayed.

“This is your fault.” I accused and stormed off.

I went back to the flat and had lunch there instead before returning for the last lesson of today.

Jess caught up with me as I walked home when my lesson finished.

“I’m sorry! I didn’t know he would cheat! He told me to tell you it’s over.” She apologised. She nibbled on her bottom lip.

“Just let me stay single.” I snapped and ran off.

I lose Louis and then I get cheated on. Just brilliant. Life couldn’t get any worse.

As soon as I got back to the flat I immediately hid in my bedroom. I locked my bedroom door.

*Knock* *Knock*

“Liz, it’s me. I’m sorry!” Jess pleaded. I shook my head and stuck my earphones in and turned up the volume on my phone.  I then curled up under my duvet.

After an hour, I switched the music off and climbed out of bed.

Liam: Jess text me what happened today. How are u feeling? X

Me: I’ve been better. It’s all Jess’ fault, she made me have a boyfriend. X

Liam: She just wants u to be happy. X

I rolled my eyes at his text and locked my phone. My phone beeped and I unlocked it.

Louis: I heard what happened. U OK? Xx

Me: I’m fine xx

I switched my phone off and climbed back into bed. I closed my eyes.

“You should talk to her. She feels really bad.” Dan suggested.

“No.” I snapped.

“She really does feel bad.” Georgia, one of my new friends, added. “She just wants you to move on from Louis.”

“I will move on when I’m ready.” I snapped.

“You can’t keep ignoring her.” Georgia sighed before standing up and flicking her ginger hair out of her face.  She walked back to where Jess was sitting, leaving me alone with Dan. I rolled my eyes. I refuse to forgive Jess.

“Georgia is right. You will have to forgive her one day.” Dan explained.

“I know. I’m just not forgiving her now.”

 

                                                                                ***

It was Christmas now, Liam was coming to see me today. I still haven’t forgiven Jess. Georgia hates my guts. Every day I get a text from her telling me I’m pathetic.

“Jess. I forgive you.” I told Jess that morning. I wanted the hateful texts to stop.

“Okay, took you long enough.” Jess snapped and rolled her eyes. She turned back to the gossip magazine she was reading.

I had a shower and got dressed. Liam said he would be around at eleven. I was really excited to see him. Hopefully I would see Paula too.

The doorbell rang at exactly eleven and I went to answer it. The whole of One Direction stood there, as well as Paula.

“Hi!” I greeted them and stepped to the side. They all walked in and immediately looked at the flat.

“Nice place.” Paula commented. She pulled me into a hug. “I’ve missed you so much!”

“I’ve missed you too.” I replied and pulled away from the hug. I hugged everyone.

“It hasn’t been the same without you.” Liam commented.

“It’s been weird not having you guys around; it’s kinda boring and lonely.” I replied. I looked at all of them except Louis. I couldn’t look at him; it hurt enough to give him a hug.

Jess walked into the lounge where we were all standing and screamed. I’m guessing she’s never met anyone from One Direction before.

“Oh my God!” She screamed.
