My Step Brother

"Our parents...they don't have to know. We can be a secret." Louis said, coming closer and closer to me and moved back until I reached the wall. Louis was right in front of me; his hand resting right next to my head.
"But- what if they, you know, find out?" I asked, my voice shaking due to how close Louis was.
"They won't. It'll just be our little secret" Louis said, his face inching towards mine.
"Works for me" I said, grabbing his head and pulling his head in to kiss him.


34. Chapter 34



"He said he'd be here!" 

"I'm sure, he just forgot, Amber. He'll come here in a couple of minutes!"

"But it's been 30 minutes!" 

I sighed in frustration. I sat down on the nearest bench and put my head in my hands. I don't know why, but I've got this gut feeling that something has happened to him.

"I'm going to look around. Stay here, Julia" I said, getting up. I walked upstairs. Hmm... what shops would Louis go to? TopMan. I looked through the window, there's no one hear. In fact, it;s locked up now as are most shops. I walked back downstairs. I've called him about 100 billion times now! Where the hell is he? 

I need to go outside and get some fresh air. I walked out through the back door. I closed my eyes and sighed to myself. Maybe's he just gone back home. Yeah, maybe he has. I was about to walk inside and tell Julia when I stopped myself. Either I heard faint voices or that's just my mind playing tricks on me. I walked closer to where I thought I heard the sound coming from.

Yes! It's getting louder. Before I knew it, my ear was pressed against the wall. I walked around the wall. Oh no! Blood was splattered everywhere. My eyes followed upwards to see two black figures fighting. One was on top of the other, punching the living daylights out of him. I wanted to go and help them. But I just stood, frozen in my steps. 

I need to call Louis. I hastily got my phone out of my pocket and pressed Louis' name in the contact list. I pressed the phone to my hear, hoping that he would pick up. There. At least, it's starting to ring! My eyes trailed back to the two black figures fighting when one of them stopped. 

Their phone started to ring. Not just to any tune. But to Louis' and our ringtone we both set for each other. Our song. 

The person on top, checked his phone and slowly got up from the man underneath him. I disconnected the phone and ran to both of them, only to confirm my suspicions . It was Louis...and Jake?

"Amber?" They both said in surprise.

"Louis?! What the hell is going on?" I shouted. He keeps me waiting for almost an hour, and when I go and look for him, he's beating the living daylights out of my friend?

Louis' eyes widened when he saw me. 

"A-A-Amber. P-Please listen to me. J-Jake-" He began, scratching the back of his neck, which he always does when he's nervous.

"I don't know, Amber! I just came to the mall to ,you know, get some stuff for my soon to be-brother-in-law's wedding when out of nowhere Louis jumps up and starts punching the shit out of me!" He said.

I looked over at Louis, disbelief written all over my face.
"I-I-Is t-that t-true, L-Lou?" I said, my voice shaking. He knows how much I hate violence. And to see my best friend, lying on the floor, blood smothered over every single part of skin...

Louis just looked at me, disgust written all over his face. 

"What? You're honestly going to believe all the shit he makes up right now?! Why would you trust that son of a bitch more than your freaking boyfriend?!" He shouted, his face turning red with rage, darker than the blood that was currently smeared all over Jake's face. His fists curled up on his sides. 
"Well, Louis, you're not exactly denying it! And also, from what little I saw, I think I could see who had the upper hand!" I shouted, the same volume as he had. Louis' face scrunched up. 

"Whatever! Now, come on! Let's go!!" He shouted, forcefully taking my hand and started to drag me across the ground. 

"No! Louis! Stop!" I said, making him loosen his grip around me. He turned around and spat a very harsh 'What'

My brain officially has no connection with my heart right now. I don't know what I'm saying, but before I can comprehend the words, they already come out of my mouth,

"Louis, we're over" 

Those 3 little words changed everything right there and then. No more pretending, sneaking around. No more Louis. I finally realised the impact of my words. Everything came crashing down on me. Each and every kiss we shared, everytime we touched each other, everytime he told me how much he loves me, those little things he always does to remind me how much he loves me...

I dared myself to look up into Louis' eyes. My own eyes were on the verge of spilling buckets of tears. I couldn't imagine how Louis must feel. 

He looked blank. No more expression on his face. I almost thought that he couldn't care less before he let out a small whisper

"W-What?" He said, breathless. 

"N-No. You can't do that, Amber. Please. I'll do anything. Just anything. Just don't break what we have. You have no idea how much you mean to me. Us. Everyday, I smile just seeing your cute little button nose and your adorable eyes. What will I do? Please don't leave me. I-I love you" He said, his eyes widening. He walked a few steps closer to me and cupped my face in his hands.

"I love you so much" He said, his eyes boring into mine. 

I snapped out from the trance he's put me in. 

"N-No. I'm sorry, Lou. We can try again later. Just not now. Right now, you're just being a jealous overprotective boyfriend and I'm just being a pathetic girlfriend who is useless. We need to separate for a while." I said, not daring to look into his eyes.

I felt his hands being taken away from my face. I looked up to see Louis running his hands through his hair, the same one that I loved to run my hands through. He just smiled, a very sarcastic one but you could also see the hurt hidden behind it.

"You know what? Fine! I'll give you your stupid space if you hate me that much! Maybe you didn't love me! Just leading me on! Or even worse, probably just love my fame and money! I mean, who wouldn't right? I can't believe, my retarded self had to fall in love with this stupid girl! Okay, you've had your stupid fame! Now just run away and live with that son of a bitch and live happily ever fucking after!" He said, storming off.

It hurt. It hurt so much. I was so tempted to run off to Louis and apologise, which I doubt is enough. He hates me now. What...have...I...just...done? I was actually going to run after him, when a hand gripped me from behind, stopping me.

"Just leave him, Amber. He's obviously not worth your precious love, if he doesn't realise how much you loved him" Jake said, from behind me.

Loved? Past tense.

No. I still love him. 

"I love him so much, Jake!" I said, turning around and crying my eyes out onto his shirt. I felt Jake tense up under me, before wrapping his hands around me. His hands were a bit too low on my back for my liking but I couldn't care less right now. Once I finished all my tears up and started to pull away, he kept me in that postition.

"Ugh... you can l-let go now" I said, my voice still shaky from the events that just occurred.

Jake released me from his grip immediately. 

"S-Sorry" He mumbled

"Don't worry." I managed to whisper out. My voice was still hoarse from that crying. 

Does Louis really think that of me? That I was just using him for his money and fame? After all we've been through? He still doesn't trust me?
