37. Chapter 36: Close

I watched Louis as he sat down on the table. Thank God I had finished my breakfast, I stood up and shoved my bowl and spoon into the dishwasher and left the kitchen.

I was about to walk into the bedroom when someone grabbed my arm. I turned around swiftly and saw Louis standing there.

“What?” I snapped a bit too harshly. I didn’t regret how my voice sounded at all. He deserved it really.

“I’m sorry I have ignored you.” Louis apologised. He looked like he meant it. I shook my head.

“I don’t accept your apology. You haven’t spoken to me once in over a year.” I hated how he expected that I would just fall onto my knees and forgive him and forget what he had done.

“How can I make it up to you?” He asked. His eyes were pleading.

“By leaving me alone,” I snapped and pulled my arm from his grip and went into the bedroom. I stormed right into the bathroom and stripped all of my clothes off.

The shower was relaxing. It also allowed me time to think on my own and not get distracted. I couldn’t help but feel bad for what I said to Louis. I knew I had hurt him, but he had hurt me. Did it really take El leaving for him to start talking? I know he had moved on, but it wasn’t an excuse to stop talking to me altogether. We were supposed to be friends.

I stepped out of the shower and wrapped the white fluffy towel around my body. I walked out of the bathroom and grabbed some clothes before returning into the bathroom to get changed.

I pulled on my skinny jeans and light pink t-shirt and threw my dirty clothes in the basket. I hung the towel up before leaving the bathroom again.

When I walked back into the bedroom, Paula was there.

“What did you say to Louis?” She asked immediately.

“I told him to leave me alone,” I replied quickly and sat on my bed.

“He was trying to apologise.” Paula explained.

“I know. I didn’t accept his apology. He has ignored me for over a year, it took El leaving for him to start talking to me.”

“I understand where you’re coming from, but just give him a chance to make it up to you.” Paula begged. I rolled my eyes and sighed.

“Fine, I’ll go talk to him now.” I said and at the same time I stood up and left the room.

Luckily it didn’t take me long to find Louis. He was sat on his own on the sofa. His eyes fixed on the TV. His eyes were red and puffy as if he had been crying.

“Lou, I’m sorry for what I said.” I apologised. He looked at me. I sat down next to him.

“It’s fine, I understand. I deserved it.” Louis mumbled.

“You didn’t deserve that. Anyway, I forgive you for ignoring me.” I told him. He looked at me and his blue eyes lit up. He pulled me into a hug.

“I won’t ignore you again, I promise.” He promised.

“Okay,” I murmured. He pulled back from the hug and gazed into my eyes. I looked away quickly. He was looking at me as if he was about to kiss me.

“Liz? Want to go out for a walk?” Harry asked me. I jumped and turned around to see him. I stood up quickly and nodded.

“Sure, when?” I replied.

“Now, if you want.” He replied.

“Sounds great, just let me get my shoes.” I told him and ran into my bedroom. I picked up the first pair of shoes I could find and put them on.

Harry was stood waiting for me outside the bedroom and when he saw me he smiled. I took his hand and we walked out of the hotel together.

“Louis was totally about to kiss you.” Harry told me as soon as we were a few metres away from the hotel.

“I know. Thanks for saving me. Anyway, how did you know?” I asked him.

“He looked at you the same way he looks at El before he kisses her.” He confirmed.

“Why would he try and cheat on El, anyway?” I asked him. He shrugged.

“No idea. Maybe he still has feelings for you.” Harry muttered.

Harry and I ended up sitting in a park on a bench with a box of doughnuts that he had bought on the way.

“Thanks.” I thanked him and leant my head on his shoulder.

“It’s no problem, really.”

 

 

 

Louis’ POV –

I don’t know what came over me. I really don’t. I thought I had moved on, I haven’t. I do love El, but I love Lizzie too. Thank God Harry asked Lizzie if she wanted to go for a walk. If he didn’t I would have cheated on El again. I couldn’t do that to her.

Maybe I was right. Maybe I should break up with El. But the boys could be right; I should just wait and see what happens. If I kiss Liz, I will break up with her. If I don’t, I just have to hope that I will stop loving Liz. El and I are supposed to be getting married; a date hasn’t been set yet though. Why am I thinking about breaking up with her?

What’s wrong with me?

Should I just remove Liz from my life? Should I somehow make sure she never gets given the job? It’s harsh, I know, but she could ruin everything me and El have. Even though it isn’t her fault.

 

Lizzie’s POV –

It was nice to be back at the hotel. Tomorrow is our last day here and then we’re flying off to New York.

Louis was nowhere to be seen. When Harry asked where he was; Liam shrugged and said he had no idea. Maybe he had gone off to think about things. I just hope because of what happened he won’t start ignore me again. He promised me he wouldn’t.
