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?

4. Time for Change

 

Nicole P.O.V

“Hello?” I said when I finally answered my phone. It had rung about seventeen times prior to me picking it up. I was getting extra grinds from Josh, this bloke that I met through Niall’s English class and I didn’t want to be rude by suddenly just picking up my phone and talking to someone.“Nicole. NICOLE!” I heard screaming at me from the other end. “Where are you?” It was Lorraine, and by the looks of it she was seemed very worried about me. “Whoa, calm down Lorraine. I’m fine. I was just getting grinds from this guy downtown. If it’s any consolation, I’m on my way home right now”, I said casually. “You better hurry up, I thought you were kidnapped or something. I mean, with what’s just after happening to Niall, we all better be a little bit more careful when we go out-”. “Wait, what happened to Niall?” I cut Lorraine off sharply; I was suddenly filled with fear. “Come home now and I’ll explain it all when you get here, just hurry” she said worriedly and then she hung up. I left Josh as quick as I could and got a taxi home immediately, the whole time I was thinking about all the horrible things that could have happened to my Nialler.

 “Nicole!” Leah said pulling me into a huge hug when I arrived back at the apartment. Everyone was here, even a guy that I didn’t exactly recognise. “We were all worried sick about you” Leah said to me. “Niall, what happened? Someone please explain to me what happened” I said pushing my point. “Nicole, Ross over here found Niall totally and utterly drunk downtown a few hours ago. He was very close to getting killed if it wasn’t for him” Lorraine said with a slightly calming voice. “My Niall Horan, drunk?” I said and you could hear the breaks in my voice, tears beginning to stream down my face. “Is he really your Niall Horan?”  Harry asked me softly, but I didn’t answer. I just didn’t know. “Where is he now?” I said composing myself after Audrey gave me a hug and put an arm around me. “He passed out on your bed Nicole, he wanted to stay in your room”, Lorraine said awkwardly. I felt extremely bad at this point. What had gotten into me? Was it my fault that this happened to Niall, am I the one to blame? “I’m going to see him, don’t bother waiting up for me”.

 

Lorraine P.O.V

Nicole walked down the hallway to her room and we didn’t see her at all until the next morning. I suppose she wanted to be with Niall, to sort things out, that is, if he wakes up. It was almost 2 in the morning when everyone parted ways, heading back to their own places. “What a day!” Liam said on his way out. “Who knew Mondays could be so exciting” Audrey said in reply. “Goodnight babe” Louis said to me, grabbing my hands and giving me a quick kiss on the cheek. Just as he was about to go I pulled him back and pressed my lips on his, kissing him passionately. “Goodnight”, I whispered to him. I had totally forgotten about Dan who was here for the whole extravaganza and he stood awkwardly by the door. “Goodnight Lorraine” he said softly as everyone was just leaving. “Thanks for trying to fix the door Dan. See you tomorrow” I said in return. And with that everyone was gone and I went to bed!

 

Nicole P.O.V

I went to bed last night next to Niall who was completely conked and fast asleep. He looked so cute and innocent when he was sleeping. I didn’t bother changing into pyjamas; I just lay there next to him, my head resting on his warm chest. Before I knew it the sun was shining in my window and I could hear the birds outside chirping, along with the hustling and bustling noise of Westminster traffic. I looked over to my bedside table where my alarm clock was set, it was half 7 in the morning. Considering I only went to sleep around 5 hours ago, I decided to snuggle back under the covers for another hour or so, seeming as I didn’t have any classed until 11.

 When I woke again it was half past 8 and already I could hear movement from Leah and Lorraine rooms’. I only realised now that Niall had left, not a trace of him to be found. Not even a note or an apology, even though it’s probably me should be apologising. What he did last night was irresponsible, but was it all because of me and what I had said to him? My conscience is definitely going to be killing me if I don’t sort this mess out soon!

 I went for a quick shower to freshen up and then went down to the kitchen for some breakfast. I could hear two people talking, one of them sounded like Lorraine but the other voice I couldn’t distinguish. “Thanks Dan, you’ve been a great help”, I heard Lorraine say. “No problem, see you around maybe”, this Dan character said. The door suddenly shut and I got a little shock. I walked into the kitchen as if I didn’t hear anything and put the kettle on. “Oh good morning Nicole” Lorraine said to me from the dining table where she was eating her breakfast. “Good morning” I said while yawning. “Is Leah awake?” I asked casually. “No, she’s fast asleep still”. “Nicole how is things?” she asked me while looking up from her newspaper. “Ehm, were you talking to Niall or something?” I asked puzzled. “No, did you not speak to him?” she replied. “No, he left before 7 this morning, that’s when I woke up and he was gone” I said with a small hint of upset in my voice. “Maybe he got a shock when he woke-up in my bed and had to leave really fast” I said with tears staring to build up. Lorraine came over and gave me a big hug. “Don’t worry Nicole. I think that it’s very important that you two sit down and talk. Tell him how you feel about him getting drunk; make sure he doesn’t do it again because it really did scare the crap out of all of us. He could have gotten killed” she said while rubbing circles in my back.

 

Niall P.O.V

I woke up this morning in Nicole’s bed. How on earth did I even get there? All I remembered was not going to class yesterday morning and instead I went to some dodgy bar somewhere downtown. I was too depressed that I just drunk my sorrows away. Then when I tried to get home I recall almost falling into the Thames before someone grabbed hold of me. Then I passed out. That is until I woke up this morning with Nicole’s head on my chest. Was I getting mixed signals? I mean like one minute she’s breaking up with me and next she’s sleeping with me. Well, I couldn’t blame her, I was the one who was sleeping on her bed, and where else would she have slept?

I got such a shock that I had to leave quietly and if you knew me well enough you’d know that hangovers aren’t really my thing. I went for a quick jog to get some fresh air and then headed back to my apartment (where Liam was fast asleep) to make some breakfast. I had to cop on. I was going to go back to class today and continue with my life. There are more fish in the sea and I shouldn’t continue drowning myself in my own sorrows of a life without that girl. It was time to turn a new chapter in my life. Christmas is coming up and I don’t exactly want to be alone, so I might just find another girl to wrap my arm around for this holiday season. That’s it. I’m done with Nicole!

 

Leah P.O.V

Ross acted like such a hero I couldn’t help but admire him as he brought Niall back home yesterday. Harry seemed very protective of me as well, I was actually quite surprised and I knew that he was onto something! Even though there is nothing going on between Ross and I, Harry still thinks he has some sort of ownership over me! It’s quite frustrating if you asked me. All I do is talk to the poor chap who probably has no friends and is trying to settle in alright. I’m only looking out for him, but I won’t lie, he is pretty good looking. Snap out of it Leah! I’m dating Harry Styles! Not Ross Lynch! These were some of the thoughts going through my head as I sat in the Lincoln Town Auditorium listening to a lecture about Charles Dickens and the significant impact he had in the county of Kent. My head certainly wasn’t in it as I was looking down at Ross way too much. When the lecture was over and as everyone was filing out I walked over to him to see how he was getting on (and yes, if you were wondering, Harry was at this lecture too, but he was still a little bit annoyed at me from the events of the previous night, so much that he didn’t even talk to me, let alone walk me to class!).

 “Hey Ross, how are you doing after yesterday?” I asked him nervously, trying to start a conversation. I could feel Harry’s eyes penetrating in my back, but I didn’t care. “Oh, hey Leah. Yeah I’m fine”, he said softly. I was barely listening to what he was saying, but rather staring at his amazing jaw line which looked absolutely stunning from up close. “Leah”, he said nervously. “Would you like to grab a cup of coffee or something?” he asked me. “As friends”, I said with a smile. In a way you could say that I was using Harry because my own intentions were to annoy him and prove a point, that I could be friends with whoever I wanted and he couldn’t do much about it. I wasn’t like he imprinted on me (yes, I am currently reading the Twilight Saga). We headed out the door and down the street that lead to Oxford Street where there was a Starbucks shop. Harry didn’t even go as far as saying anything to me, he just watched and as we walked out the glass twisting door and out of sight.
