Careless -Complete-

You were my best friend. We did everything together. You were my first laugh, my first trouble, my first time. Then you left when I needed you most. So Liam, please tell me why you're back. I want us to be the same but how can that be? We can't because back then we were careless...and I'm a mother now.

12. Later Eden

Once again, I am empty. My only life is my boy Jamie. It’s been a couple weeks now since the boys left and it feels like forever. Having company in my life after years of only Jamie made me feel whole. Now I am back with my normal self.

Another day at work is just how it sounds. Another day. I set Jamie on the counter top in the kitchen, where he always stays. He’s got it bad. He misses the boys too and calls them whenever he can. Sometimes they can’t answer because they’re busy and I try to tell Jamie that.

They’ll be back.

I try and convince myself more than Jamie. If they never do, he’ll forget. He’s young and in a matter of years their faces will be forever scratched from his memory.

“Uncle Louis said he can call later” Jamie told me as I was tying my waitress apron around my waist. I nodded, “Sounds good.”

I kiss Jamie on the cheek and leave the kitchen with my notepad and pen in hand. I see a table with about three girls and decide to start my day there. “Hello.” They turned to me with a smile but their eyes widen at the sight.

“Um, can I get you guys something to drink?” I stammer. Why are they staring?

“I told you she worked here” one whispered to the other two. “Okay, you were right Caroline, I just can’t believe it!” the other squealed.

“Do I know you?” I ask. How did they know who I was and where I work?

“You’re dating Harry freakin’ Styles, of course we know who you are.”

“Oh, no, Harry and I are just friends.” I told them that because it was true. Harry and I decided to be friends before they left, even though we both had feelings for one another.

“So you do know him!” I nodded. “Can we get a picture, no an autograph, how about both?” “Um, I don’t know, I’m no one special really.” “Of course you are!” “O-okay.”

“Sign this shirt for us!” The squealy one handed me a shirt and sharpie marker. How odd that she carries them around in her bag. “A-alright. Just my signature?” “Make it out to us!” I nodded, “What’re your names?”

“I’m Mone’” the squealy one said. “Caroline.” “Janae.”

I shakily signed their shirt, capped the pen and handed them both back to them. “Thank you!”  They hugged me, and then sat back into their seats.

That was strange, though serving them was fun.

Later that day Jamie and I spent about thirty minutes driving to my hometown and visiting Lea’s grave. I packed a few snacks because usually Jamie likes to stay long. As soon as I stopped the car, Jamie unstrapped himself and hoped out of the car, running to the right spot. I hastily caught up with him, “Jamie!” By the time I got to where he was already sitting by her head stone.

My angel.

“Hi” Jamie said. I always sat at the foot of her grave and watched as Jamie spoke to her. If only she could be here to answer back. “Member last time when I told you about Louis? Well, his friends were here too.” He brushed some dirt off of her stoned picture with his dimpled hands. “Niall is funny a-and talks funny. Zayn is nice to me and helped make mommy’s poma.” He bent down low to her picture and cupped his mouth, staging a whisper. “I think Harry like mommy” I heard him say. I smiled at his words. “Liam was mommy’s friend and still is. She says they were like brother n sister. Like us.”

Jamie turned his head to me and held out his hand. I placed the flower in it and watched as he placed it on the ground that buried her. “Mommy loves you” he told her. He smiled and turned to me, “She said she loves you too.” A few tears escaped my eyes but I smiled through them. Jamie crawled into my lap and snuggled into me.

We stayed there for another thirty minutes, watching the sun set.

By the time we got back to the flat it was already dark and Jamie was pretty tired. We both bathed and got into our pajamas. Louis called to tell us that they were having a TV interview that we could watch.

We grabbed some blankets and draped them over ourselves as we cuddled on the couch. Jamie once again sat on my lap and rested his head on my chest. He wouldn’t last long. I flicked through the channels and found the interview. We were joined in during the middle but still decided to watch it.

The boys all sat on separate stools as a male host spoke to them. “There’s uncle Louis” Jamie pointed.

Louis whispered something into Harry’s ear and they both turned to the camera and waved. The interviewer asked why. “We have some friends back home who are watching” Harry answered. Were they talking about us?

“Would you like to shout them out?”

“Hi Eden and Jamie” Louis cheered. All boys then turned to the camera and waved. “Batman is better” Liam blurted. I bursted into laughter. Oh Liam.

The boys went back to answering questions. Some including their new album, upcoming tours, how their time on brake was, relationships.

“Niall, we have some pictures of you with a very attractive young lady.” Niall gave him a confused look. The man brought up a picture of Niall and I eating out. “Oh” he laughed. “No, that’s Eden, she’s a friend.”

He raised an eyebrow, “But you both seem pretty close.” He shook his head, “Nah, her and Harry are closer” he teased, nudging Harry’s side. He visibly tinged but laughed to hide his nervousness. “Oh, so this is Harry’s friend?” “Special friend” Louis added. The boys laughed.

“Yeah, she’s a friend of mine.” He looked at the camera and winked. Oh Harry.

The interviewer then asked Liam about Sophia and the boys’ attitudes shifted. Jamie began to doze in my arms but he tried to keep his eyes open.

The boys were directed to a stage where they performed one of their songs. I’m sure it was ‘More than this’. It was sweet. “They’re good” Jamie mumbled as he lulled to sleep. I smiled down at his sleeping figure. The boys waved as they were directed off stage. “Bye!” they cheered.  Liam made a heart with his hands and smiled. ‘Later Eden’ he mouthed.

I smiled and glanced down to my baby. I kissed his head and whispered. “There’s your daddy, Jamie.”
