6. All Too Well.

Louis' P.O.V

Taliah was taking me to the shed her and Ashleigh stay in. It was far from the town, she had to walk this nearly everyday. I really wanted to see Ashleigh, the suspense was killing me. We were walking down a long path in the woods, footprints were stamped into the dirt. I heard the sky rumble, I looked up and the grey clouds were coming over us. Taliah stopped and looked at the sky. She put her hood up on her green coat and started running. I ran after her, trying not to slip. The rain poured down fast and heavy. I stopped and saw a shed in the distance. It was a big shed, I thought it would be small. Taliah got to the door and turned around, she motioned me to come towards her. I walked slowly over. As she was about to open the door, I stopped her. She looked up at me. 

"Maybe I should stay here." I shouted, the rain was heavy and loud. She shook her head and looked away from me for a moment. She looked back up at me.

"Don't be scared of her." She replied. I nodded and she opened the door walking inside. I took a deep breath and followed. She shut the door behind me. I looked around the room. There were 2 couches with blankets draping over them, a chair, 3 bottles of vodka on the side, pack of cigarettes on the table, a small tv, a radio and a corridor. Taliah took her scarf off and hung it up along with her coat. Ashleigh wasn't around.

"This is very nice." I said, Taliah giggled. I looked at her and she walked around the room.

"It's all we have. I'll go find Ash, you stay here." Taliah said, walking away and down the corridor. I sat on the couch and looked around the room again. The thought of Ashleigh and Taliah staying here, made me upset. I heard doors opening and closing in the distance. I heard a door slam and I heard shouting coming from inside a room. I walked to the end of the corridor and listened. 

"He came all this way just to see you! To hold you! To look after you! And this is what you do! Lock yourself in a room sitting it the corner! You're so ungrateful. I know you love him and I know you miss him. So stop acting so tough and go and see him." Taliah shouted. I felt like I was ruining this already. I walked away from the hall and saw the picture of Ashleigh and Taliah on the shelf when they were happy. I put the picture down and opened the front door. I looked back and then walked out the door, shutting it behind me. 

I started walking down the path again, the rain was making puddles. I didn't have a clue where I was going. I heard someone screaming my name. I walked faster, I didn't want to explain to Taliah why I left, it was complicated. I felt an arm wrap around my arm stopping me from walking. I turned around and saw Ashleigh. I stared at her for a while. Not saying a word. She really did look different. Her eyes were black and bloodshot. Her hair was in a messy bun and curly. 

She took a step back. Raindrops in her hair. She didn't smile when she saw me. 

"Ashleigh." I whispered, she nodded. 

Ashleigh's P.O.V

I've disappointed him. I know I have. I have disappointed a lot of people recently and I blame myself for that. I wanted so badly to hug him and smash my lips onto his but I just couldn't. It was like my feet were stuck to the ground. It felt so good to see him standing in front of me. 

I had always dreamed of him, coming back. He reached into his pocket and pulled out a folded piece of paper. He looked at it. He stared for a while. His eyes met mine again and he held it up. 

"Did you really mean what you said?" He asked, I nodded still not saying anything. I couldn't. My mouth wouldn't open. I looked away from him and he took a step closer. I looked up at him, I felt his warm breath brush against my skin. 

I tried to speak, but no words came out of my mouth. Why was this happening to me? I looked up at him, his eyes filled with grief. I put my hand on his arm. He looked down at me, "I'm so sorry." I finally spoke. 

"For what?" He shouted over the rain that forced down over us. His hair was draping over his forehead, wet. I looked down at myself, I moved my hand off his arm. 

"This," I replied, tranquil. He didn't say anything, "I'm probably not what you were expecting. You probably thought I was happy, and the same girl.." There was a long pause, "But im not. And I'm sorry that I've disappointed you." I turned around and started walking towards the shed. He grabbed my arm. 

"Hey, I know how hard it's been. You probably think I wasn't upset either, but it kills me. Everyday. I don't know what I was thinking leaving you. You made me happy. You got me to where I am now and I'm so grateful for that. I came back didn't I?" Tears ran down my face, although you probably couldn't tell from the rain. I nodded. 

"But that doesn't mean that I'm going to get better. I'm gone Louis. And I'm not coming back, we both know that. So, I think you were right to end it." I said, I didn't look at him. It hurt me even more seeing him but it also felt so good. I wanted to change, I want to be the person I was before. I just dont think that any of that will come back. 

"It's because of me you're like this. Since you wrote me a letter, I decided to write you one." He said, he pulled an envelope from his left pocket and handed me it. I put it in my pocket so it wouldn't get wet. I looked up at him and smiled. 

"Thank you." I replied, he smiled and nodded. The rain was beginning to stop.

"I should probably get going." He said, I looked down in disappointment. I didn't want him to go. It would be like history repeating itself. He leaned in and gave me a kiss on my forehead. I closed my eyes and when I opened them again, he was gone.

Taliah's P.O.V

I was sitting on the couch when the door opened. I stood up and Ashleigh walked in, alone. I walked over to her and she looked at the ground. 

"How did it go?" I asked, She looked up at me. Her mascara was running down her face, her hair was dripping wet. She shook her head. I quickly moved closer to her and gave her a hug. She cried into my chest. 

"He's gone." She whispered. It had been a long time since Ashleigh gave me a hug, or even spoke to me. I never understood why she called me this morning. I didn't want to ask, not now. We pulled out the hug and I looked at her. I moved a strand of hair off her face. She reached into her pocket and pulled out a white envelope with her name on it. She sat on the couch and opened it. 

I watched Ashleigh read the letter, there were about 3 pages in her hand. She smiled at some of them and nodded at a few others. By the time she had finished she put the papers on her lap and bit her bottom lip looking at the ceiling. I just stared. There was a knock at the door. She looked at me worried, no one ever knocked on the door. She got straight up and went to answer it. 

She stood by the door, she took one last look at me before opening it. There he was. Louis. 

"Louis, wha-" Before she finished, his lips were on hers. Her hands when on his waist and his hands were on her cheek. I smiled. Hadn't seen that in a while. He finally pulled away and stared at her.

"You don't know how long I have been waiting to do that." He said, Ashleigh giggled. Oh my god, Ashleigh giggled. She was already beginning to be her old self again. She shut the door and hugged Louis. 

"Do you mind if I read this?" I asked, holding up the 3 sheets of paper. They both looked at me and Ashleigh shook her head, so did Louis. I think they were just happy they were with each other again.

Dear Ashleigh, Your letter really made me remember all of the good times we've had together. We grew up together. I don't know why I ever let you go, that was so stupid of me. I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for you, I miss you so much it hurts. I think about you every night before I go to sleep and I think about you every morning before I started the day. You're constantly on my mind and I can never stop thinking about you. You make me so happy. 

I'm sorry I never called you back or texted you. I was scared, I dont know why I was scared, I just was. I get nervous around you now and its so hard for me to explain. I tried to come see you a while back but everyone said they hadn't seen you in a long time and others told me you skipped town. I didn't know where to look, but I looked. I didn't want to give up but soon enough I knew that I would never find you. I don't know if this letter will even get to you but I sure hope it does. I remember when we went to the oasis concert in London, and you cried when Liam touched your hand. You were in love with them. That was the first time I ever saw you cry and even though it was happy crying, it still made me upset to see the tears stream down your face. 

I called Taliah a few months back, we didn't talk for long. All she said was "She's gone." and then hung up. I didn't know what she meant, I thought you had run away and thats when I started to panic. I wanted to see you so bad. I used to talk about you a lot to the boys and one day I just stopped and they asked me why I wasn't talking about you anymore, I had the biggest crush on you. I still do. I'm sorry these pages are small, I ripped them out of Harry's notebook, don't tell him. He's the only one who knows about what happened and he supports me, he tells me I will find you one day and I hope so too. I miss you. 

Love always, Louis x 

I looked up at Louis and he smiled, "Pretty cheesy, I know. But its 100% the truth. I'm going to help you, Ashleigh. With this. And I think the first thing we need to do is get you guys a better home." He scanned the room. I nodded and so did Ashleigh.
