A Long Lost Friend

A trip down memory lane leads me to an old best friend, and some new ones too. One Direction fanfiction.


5. The notebook

My mysterious savior and I finally reached the park bench. He sat down, pulling me to sit down next to him. I could hear the scraping of material against skin and I guessed that he was looking for a tissue. He finally found one, passing it to me. I dried my eyes and my face, and once I could see again, I turned my head upwards to see who I was here with.

My eyes met his blue-green eyes. Internally I let out a sigh of relief. At least it was one of the boys that I knew better. He looked down on me, concern filling his eyes. ‘Are you okay?’ He asked, worry evident in his voice.

‘I’m… no.’ I finished lamely.

‘What’s wrong?’ He asked, as if he was asking about the weather.

‘Just homesickness… and painful memories coming back.’ I said, shrugging and fighting back tears.

‘What memories?’ Louis asked, tilting my chin up until our eyes met. ‘You can trust me. Really, you can.’

I explained how when I was younger, my parents had split up for just over a year, how my mom had gotten an abusive boyfriend and how he had raped her, and me, when I was just a little girl of 5. I explained how this made me cautious, untrusting of males, how I really needed to get to know them before we did anything.  By the time I was finished, the tears were running down my face, my emotional, almost healed scars being ripped open again. Louis wiped my tears away. He hugged me and I put my head on his chest. ‘I’m sorry,’ I laughed. ‘I’m making your T-shirt all wet.’

‘That’s okay,’ He said, laughing along with me. ‘I don’t mind, it needed a wash anyway,’ He said, winking. ‘How about we go back inside, choose a movie together and we can get started on that movie night you wanted?’ Without waiting for an answer, he took my hand and dragged me towards the house.

We got back inside and all of the boys came over to us. ‘Are you okay?’ all of the boys asked at once.

‘Yeah, I’m fine, thanks guys.’ I said smiling. They engulfed me in a group hug. They all broke away one by one, eventually leaving just Niall and me.

‘You okay, Blondie?’ Niall asked. Our brother-sister relationship really was amazing.

‘Yeah, I’m good.’ I said smiling. ‘I missed you Ni,’ I said to him. ‘Love you, big bro.’

‘Love you too little sis.’ He let go, going to flop on the couch that Harry and Zayn were sitting on.

‘Louis? Can we go pick that movie now?’ I asked smiling. He nodded. I took his hand and together we walked towards the box filled with movies. ‘The Notebook!’ I screamed.

‘The what?’Harry asked, confused.

‘You guys haven’t seen the notebook?’ I asked incredulously. When they shook their heads looking confused, I laughed at them. ‘Well then we have to watch this!’ I slipped it into the DVD player.

We watched the movie and by the end of it, I had tears in my eyes. I reached for the tissue box that was sitting on the living room table. I wiped my eyes and sniffed. ‘That was so romantic and sad.’ I said, sniffing again.

‘Pass me those tissues please,’ Liam said sniffing.

‘Awwwww, Leeyum! Are you cwying?’ I teased in a baby voice.

‘No… I just have…  Something in my eye, okay?’ He said, looking away and blushing. ‘Stupid chick flick.’ He muttered.

We all burst out laughing. ‘I’m hungry,’ Niall said.

‘Way to ruin the moment, Niall!’ Louis laughed. He was sitting on the same couch as me, his arm flung over the back.

I looked up at him. ‘I don’t think he ruined the moment.’ I said, reaching around and hugging him. ‘Thank you for today,’ I said, blushing. ‘You’re amazing,’ I said to him.

‘Right back at you,’ He hugged me back. My eyelids started drooping, the jet lag finally catching up with me. I couldn’t wait to see what tomorrow would bring.
