*One Week Later*


Carter’s POV


I was all packed up today was the day that I was going to be going on the tour bus with the boys, because sadly we were leaving L.A. I walked down the stairs with my duffle and back pack. I dropped my bags at the door and walked into the kitchen. “ELO!” I yelled while walking threw the door. “Good morning little sis!” Luke said. “Mom left?” “Yeah she had work..” “Wow.. She doesn't even say bye.” I said, annoyed, while I grabbed six of the pancakes that he had made. “Do you have all your stuff?” “Yeah.. But I don’t want to leave yet.” I said with a frown. Luke came over and gave me a hug. “Okay, eat up! You have a big day ahead of you!” He said while unwrapping his arms from around me. I turned back to the stack of pancakes that I had gotten myself.


After I finished eating I put my plate in the dishwasher. I walked into the living to hang out with Luke before I have to leave, since I have to wait for Harry and the boys to come and pick me up. I sat down on the couch by Luke and snuggled up to him because I don’t get to ever. “I don’t wanna leave.” I said looking up at him a little. “I don’t want you to go either, but you will have fun with Harry on tour and I’ll see you very soon. Okay?” I just nodded my head in response. “And you can call me anytime you want if you’re feeling homesick, okay.” “Mmhmm.” I whimpered. After about ten minutes of just snuggling, when I started to feel like I was going to doze off. I was just about to let the sleep feeling take over me when the doorbell went off. Luke and I got up and walked over to the door. When we opened the door Harry was standing there. “Hey, ready?” He asked me. I just nodded my head and grabbed my duffle and backpack. We walked out the door and walked over to the tour bus. When we got to the door I looked up and saw Liam standing there. “Here. I can take your bags.” I handed him my bags then turned around to face Luke, who was still standing on the front porch. I ran up to him and gave him a big hug. “I’ll see you soon Kit Cat.” “Okay I’ll see you soon then.” I didn’t want to let go of him. “Remember, call me if you feel homesick or text me okay?” “Okay.” I said while nodding my head in his shoulder. “Let me know when you get to where you’re going.” I just nodded my head in his shoulder again. I didn’t realize till now that I was crying. I soon  pulled out of the hug that I wish could never end. “Keep up the good grades okay.” I said to him, smiling through my tears. “I will along as you do.” He said back to me. I nodded my head. “I should go before I cry even more.” I said looking up at him. He nodded his head then gave me another hug. This one didn’t last as long but I was just as sad when the hug was over. “I love you.” “Love you too.” I walked to the door of the tour bus and turned back at Luke waving bye to him, then I climbed up into the bus. Harry then walked up to me when I got on. “Come on I’ll show you where you’ll be sleeping when we’re on the bus.” I just nodded my head, not trusting my voice at the moment. I followed him threw a door and saw six beds, three on each side. “Here you’ll be in the bottom one on the right here. Liam went ahead and put your backpack on your bed and your duffle is by the bathroom down the hall there. I’m in the bed above you and Niall is across from you there.” He said while pointing to the beds. I just nodded my head. “I think I’m just going to take a nap if that’s aright?” I asked, my voice shaking. “Oh yeah that’s fine. Me and the lads will be at the back of the bus if you need anything, okay?” “Okay.” I climbed into the bed and cried myself to sleep.


*After Nap*


When I woke up, I looked around a little, not remembering where I was or what I was doing here. I felt my face dry with tears, and I climbed out of the bed and looked around more. I walked down a little hall and through a door. When I walked through the door all the heads in the room turned to me. All the boys where in there just playing video games. Harry opened his arms, I walked over and snuggled into him. I clearly wasn’t ready to have to leave Luke again. The last time I had to say bye to him was when our parents had gotten the divorce. The way I am right now is nothing compared to how I was before. After that I was a complete mess. I didn’t go outside, or eat that much. 


I started silently crying into Harry’s chest, while they all continued playing. “Are you hungry? We saved some food for you from when we stopped.” Harry said while looking down at me. I just shook my head, again not wanting to say anything. “Is she sick? This is the quietest I’ve ever heard her!” Louis said looking over at Harry. Everyone then looked at us and I barred my head farther into Harry. ‘I should have just stayed in the bed’ I thought to myself. I think Harry saw the tears that where rolling down my cheeks ‘cause he started to rub the back of my head. He placed a little kiss to my forehead then rested his head on mine. “You’ll see him again soon. I promise.” He whispered to me. Which made me relax quite a might. The boys must have gone back to their game because I heard the sound coming from the tv again. For the rest of the ride to wherever the heck we where going I stayed snuggled into Harry.


The Tour bus came to a halt, I guess we got to where we are going to be. The door to the bus opened and closed, and minute later I saw Paul standing in the doorway. “We’re at the hotel lads, so grab your stuff and come on.” He said, motioning us out, then turned around and walked out. Harry stood up but I remained on the couch that we where on. “Come on. We can snuggle more once we get to the room if you want.” He said. “HARRY YOU’RE JUST GOING TO LEAVE ME!?” I heard Louis yell from the front of the bus. Harry just chuckled then reached his hand out to me. I took it standing up. I put my head on his bicep since he was a lot taller then me. We picked up our bags and walked off the bus. We followed Paul into the hotel and waited for him to get the room keys. “Okay, who’s staying with who?” Paul asked once he had the keys. “I’m staying with Carter.” Harry said to him. Louis just glared at him. “I’ll stay with Niall.” Louis said looking over at Niall. “Liam and I will share.” Zayn said. “Okay easy enough.” Paul said handing everyone the keys. Once we got up to the room I jumped in a quick little shower, and got ready for bed. I walked to the bed and crawled in under the sheets. Harry took a shower, got dressed, got in the other bed, and turned the lights out. I just rolled my eyes, even though he couldn’t see me. I got out of the bed that I was in and got into the bed he was in. I snuggled up to him. “You said we could snuggle.” I said to him, remembering the words he told me. After lying there for a few minutes sleep took me over once again today. Why have I been so tired lately?
