Waiting For Forever

The amazing journey continues as our five couples are back in college after their mid-term break and Christmas is just around the corner. Everything seems to be going well for the gang but underneath all the happy dappy the cracks are beginning to show. Each couple experiencing their own handful of difficulties, can they all pass through it? Can Liam and Felicity stay in contact, even though being over 400 miles apart? What happens when one loses contact? Or for Niall and Nicole, arguing constantly over the most stupid of things? Zayn and Audrey, working AND living together? Maybe it's time one of them moved out? Or Leah and Harry? When another guy shows up at their English class, does Harry get jealous? Or maybe it's Lorraine and Louis? Trying their best to bring everyone back together, racing against the clock. Maybe all the crumbling relationships around them is taking its toll on them too?


5. Behind that Glass Door


Leah P.O.V

 “I’ve had a really lovely time Ross, thanks for buying me the coffee and listening to my first world problems”, I joked with him as we walked down the street towards the Halltown. He let out a little nervous laugh. “I’d love to take you out again Leah, as friends of course. I know you’re dating Harry, and the last thing I want to do is get in the way between you two”, Ross said in a more serious voice. We walked in silence for a bit and I took in the cold December air. It was getting dark for 5 o clock, we could see our breaths puff out, leading us forward. I was really pissed off at Harry, for the way he’s been treating me recently. I was getting tired of it; I didn’t want to be ‘his’ anymore. “Ross, I want to go out with you. More than just friends as well”, I finally replied just as we arrived at the lobby. Ross looked deep into my eyes, his warm breath resting on my cheek as he held my hand.

 Was I making a big mistake? I don’t know, but I was caught up in the moment and the next thing I knew he kissed me, and it felt great. My biggest nightmare wasn’t over yet, to be frank it had only just begun. Harry saw everything from behind the glass door. He suddenly burst through, brushing past us deliberately and heading towards town. “Harry!” I shouted at him, but he was ignoring me. “Harry please, let me explain”, I shouted as I ran after him. Ross basically just disappeared, probably inside the lobby or something to give us some space. I don’t exactly know where he went because I didn’t see him again that night. “There’s nothing for you to explain”, Harry said forcefully when he stopped on the Westminster Bridge, his back to me. I was standing about 4 metres away from him. “I know that you don’t love me anymore Leah, you clearly don’t”. “Harry please, don’t do something stupid. Ross kissed me, okay? But that doesn’t mean anything!” I pleaded with him. It were times like these when I knew that Harry was the one for me, every single characteristic under sun about that boy is what I fell in love with. I was scared for him. I loved him, I just couldn’t find the words.” He turned around to look at me and I could see that he was crying. “Leah, don’t waste your time. You don’t belong with me”. It clearly took him a lot of strength to say those words. Those words that would affect me for the rest of my life.


Nicole P.O.V

 My classes finished at 3 and the whole entire time I was staring at the clock. As soon as I was free I had to contact Niall. First to see that he was okay after yesterday because he just left this morning, not even leaving a not or a voicemail and secondly because we had to sort out “us”. I still had feelings for the boy but right now in my life isn’t exactly the best time to be in a relationship. My exams are coming up before Christmas this year and if I don’t perform well enough I might have to go back to Ireland, and that’s the last thing I want to tell my boyfriend. He’s a total distraction! Sometimes a good one though.

 “Niall?” I said as his phone answered. “Hello?” was what I heard in that strong sexy Irish accent. “It’s me Nicole. We need to talk”. Half an hour later I met Niall in an Insomnia cafe near my college. He looked like his normal self again, even bubblier. “Hi Niall”, I said nervously as he sat down. “I’m just going to go straight ahead and say that I still have strong feelings for you. I really do love you, but I just can’t be in a relationship” I said all in one breath. It felt great to get that off my chest. “Nicole dear, that’s lovely and all, but I’m a new person. What happened yesterday really shook me up, so much that I’ve decided to change. I need to start fresh in my life. I’m glad we’re on the same page” he said in reply. What was that supposed to mean? He doesn’t want to be in a relationship with me? Like, ever? A whole new set of emotions just poured over me like a volcano spitting lava. I couldn’t bear to even look at him. I ran out the door, not knowing where I was going, but at least it was away from him.


Niall P.O.V

 I was glad that Nicole and I were able to sort things out. She clearly didn’t want to be in a relationship with me, and as much as that hurt me deep down inside, I still swallowed it. I wanted to act all cool so I said that I was okay with it. I didn’t want to make the situation any more difficult for her. Why she got up and basically ran out the door, I wouldn't know until a lot later.

Lorraine P.O.V

 I was bopping around the kitchen that night after a fun filled day at school (sarcasm). I hadn’t seen Louis all day, thinking he must have been too busy to stop over. Almost all of us have some form of exams before Christmas this year, so I’m not surprised that I’ve gotten a lot of alone time. I was making myself some pasta thinking about my birthday at the end of the week when Nicole suddenly burst in the door, completely drowned in tears. About 5 minutes later Leah ran in, covered in even more tears and her mascara was running, giving her really bad panda eyes. I certainly had my work load cut out for me, making plenty cups of tea and getting the Ben & Jerry’s out of the freezer.

 Nicole and Niall were officially over, and as much as we all saw it coming, Nicole the most, she was still extremely distraught about it. “Nicole, you did it for him. For all we know, if you don’t pass those exams you’ll have to go back to Ireland, and that’s the last thing we want.” I said re-assuring. “Yeah, but it kills me to know that Niall doesn’t know it and that he agreed to break up. Why?” she sobbed out. “Is there someone else?” she dug into the ice-cream and took out a huge spoonful. Leah was even worse. Ross had kissed her right in front of Harry. Even though Leah kind of had this coming, she still loved Harry, even though she was annoyed at him for thinking that he owned her. “We were standing on Westminster Bridge, and he told me that I didn’t belong with him. That’s what killed me.” She ran back to the apartment straight away, too upset to keep fighting for him. “Ross is lovely, and maybe I lead him on, but only because I was pissed off at Harry. I still love that boy! No matter what! But it’s too late, he can’t see that anymore. I’ve blown it.” Leah sobbed as well, even louder, almost like a howl. The whole fifth floor probably heard her.

 In my head this was absolutely terrible. Not just for the girls, but for our whole entire group. Harry and Leah aren’t on speaking terms, and I don’t exactly think that Nicole will want to talk to Niall, not after what he said. Christmas was coming soon, not to mention my birthday! We had all planned on spending it together here in London, instead of all going back home. Maybe all those plans will be ruined now. I rang Louis later that even to discuss the day’s events. “Hey babe. It feels like a really long time.” “Tell me about it, I’ve been studying my ass off trying to learn all this crap about the history of Drama. I mean, who needs to know about that kind of stuff anyways?”, he said jokily. “Louis, Niall and Nicole broke up, and so did Harry and Leah” I said depressingly. “Yeah, Harry told me. He hasn’t taken it too well to be honest. He’s still locked in his room”. “What does this mean? Our plans for Christmas are kind of ruined if we don’t do something about it?” I asked him sadly. “We shouldn’t just kill off everything because of them. Maybe we can get everyone back together, before Christmas Eve. We can try and make everything go back to the way it used to be, like last week”, Louis said light heartedly. “We’ll start this weekend!” he said suddenly. “This weekend, what’s going on?” I asked completely confused. “Oh, nothing. I guess you’ll just have to wait and see!” he said and I knew that he was keeping something from me. “I better go babe. Goodnight!”. “Good night”. What’s going on?
