Only When I Walk Away (Under Major Editing)

Don't you only love me when I walk away?


9. Chapter 9

-Wake Up

Judging from Liam's text this morning I can already tell he won't be in a good mood. Great. I groggily stand up, raising my arms while I stretch. I go to my closet and pull out a floral dress and a denim jacket. I place it on my bed and head for the shower.After getting out and changing, I throw my hair into a high ponytail. I grab my bag and phone. As I make my way downstairs, I check my phone and I have ten minutes before I have to meet Liam outside. My parents are already eating breakfast at the table. They're just about ready to leave for work. I plop down in a seat by my dad.

"How'd the date go?" My dad asks sipping his coffee.

"Fun. We went to Belmont Park."

"Nice! Did you ride any rides?" My mom asks while stirring her coffee.

"Yeah. Every ride."

I check my phone and it's about time to meet Liam outside. I dismiss myself from the table and kiss my parents goodbye. I hesitantly walk to the door, turning the knob slowly and opening the door. There was Liam, he was watching on going cars pass by. I shut my door, locking it behind me. I walk up to Liam tapping him on the shoulder. Liam turns around and looks down at me. He gives me a half smile as we begin walking. Liam's hands are deep in his pocket as we're walking slowly to school.

"How're you feeling?" I ask breaking the silence.

"What do you mean?"

"You told me you weren't feeling well yesterday."

"Oh,'' Liam says remembering. "I'm doing okay."

"What was wrong?"

"Just a cold. Nothing serious."

I nod my head as we continue walking. There's a big gap between us that could fit a whole other person. Liam seems really distant today. I look down at my shoes as we continue walking.

"Did you have fun yesterday?" Liam asks looking down at me.

"Yeah, we uh- went to Belmont Park."


Suddenly my phone vibrates in the pocket of my jacket. I quickly pull it out, it was a text from Josh. I flutter inside as I slowly open the text reading it.

-I had fun again yesterday. If you don't have homework later, I was hoping we could go for some coffee.

I smile at the text, before replying agreeing to go out. I turn my gaze to Liam, and he's looking at cars pass by again. I playfully bump my hip against his. He doesn't respond, so I do it again. This time Liam's trying hard to keep a smile from appearing on his face. This time I bump his hip harder causing him to stumble a bit. A grin appears on his face, he wraps an arm around my waist pulling me closer to him. He plants a soft kiss on my cheek.


Liam's POV

It's lunch time and I'm waiting by the tree Lotus and I always sit at, waiting for her with my best mates. I sit impatiently waiting for her to show up. I constantly check my phone waiting for a text from her. She never has me wait for long, well she would at least text me if she was going to be late.

Suddenly I see her, butterflies flutter in my stomach. She's across the grass field, I attempt to get up when I realize she isn't alone. She's with...him, hand in hand. I slump back against the tree as I angrily gaze at them. They're sitting down on the grass. she's sitting between his legs as he wraps his arms around her. He constantly whispers in her ear as he gives her pecks on the cheek. Gross. I will never kiss her left cheek again.

"Liam?" Niall breaks me out of my thoughts. "Who are you staring at?"

Louis turns around as he notices Lotus all snuggled up with Josh. He turns around nodding his head.

"You're staring at Lotus?" He asks with a big grin on his face. I shrug my shoulders.

"She's hot." Harry says under his breath. I punch his arm causing him to wince. He raises his hands in defense.

"You should tell her how you feel.'' Zayn says before taking a bite of his apple. I shrug my shoulders again.

"Are they together?" Louis asks.

I shake my head 'no'.

"Maybe you should tell her before it's too late. It can probably change her mind." Niall suggests.

"You're right." I agree smiling widely. "I'll tell her after school."

They all nod their head in agreement. The bell rings and we all stand up. I say bye to the lads as I walk off to class. I pull out my phone and begin to text Lotus.

-Can we meet up somewhere after school? I have to talk to you about something.

I send the message as I walk down the hallway. My phone vibrates again and I begin to walk slowly, eventually stopping. I anxiously unlock it, reading the text. I roll my eyes at it.

-Can it wait until tomorrow? I promised Josh I would go out for coffee with him.

I angrily return my phone in my pocket as I head to class. I guess I'll have to tell her tomorrow.


Lotus' POV

We get out of Josh's car as we walk hand in hand inside the coffee shop. Josh pulls me closer as he leans down down to whisper, his lips grazing my ear.

"Don't bother pulling out your wallet this time."

I look up at him and smile. He gives me a soft kiss on the nose as he begins to order and pay. The cashier gives us our drinks as we sit at a table.

"You look lovely today." Josh says while taking a sip of his coffee.

I look down at my outfit, before smoothing out the wrinkles of my dress.

"Thank you."

My cheeks turn crimson as I take a sip of my drink. Josh reaches across the table for my hand as he brings it to his lips, giving it a soft kiss.
