42. Here Comes Good-Bye.

Katie's P.O.V

 

My eyes slowly opened before I sat up in bed. There was no need for an alarm clock to be set the night before. Today was the day.

I didn't feel the need to get dressed up, knowing Niall and I would just be traveling for the next couple of days. A pair of sweatpants and (my own) Pink Floyd t-shirt were lazily thrown on before brushing my hair and applying a bit of mascara. I then added the cross Harry had given me around my neck, putting his blazer on as well instead of my regular hoodie.

"Good morning." Niall spoke, causing me to spin around in his direction.

"Good morning." I responded.

"I came to get you out of bed, but it appears you're already up."

"Can't have me sleeping in on the big day now can we?"

"I suppose not." He grinned, leading me downstairs.

Niall already had breakfast covered, two plates sitting together on the island bar.

"I'm going to miss this place." I sighed, poking at my food.

"We'll be back before you know it." He assured me.

"I know, it's just, things are going to be so different, you know?"

"Yeah."

We ate in silence after that, not really sure on what mood to be in anymore. I had managed to make a dent in my breakfast when the doorbell sounded. Niall got up to answer it before bringing in the guys.

"Good morning!" Liam announced, bringing memories back to my mind. It felt like the morning of Niall's departure was being relived, only this time I wasn't sick with their presence. Harry had failed to make an appearance this morning though, my eyes only falling upon three figures.

"Hey guys." I smiled, giving each of them a proper hug. "Where's Harry?"

"Beats me, haven't talked to the lad since.." Louis' voice trailed off, not needing to explain any further.

"You guys come to help load the remaining luggage?" Niall asked, a slight chuckle escaping his lips.

I knew he was only changing the subject due to the fact Harry had been brought up. Although I manage to find more than enough room for forgiveness, I think Niall is seriously done with him. With that being realized, it also leads to further thoughts on how things could possibly work between us if he lacks Niall's approval. I don't think five months on tour is going to solve much and I find that a dilemma.

"Katie, go load the rest of your things on the bus." Niall ordered. He then took Louis and Zayn up the stairs to help with his last couple of bags.

"I'll help." Liam stated, walking with me to my room.

"Thanks." Was all I managed, the word seeming to be barely audible.

I didn't have much to gather really, just a suitcase, backpack, and a hand bag I had packed with things to keep me occupied.

"I'm sure he'll show up." Liam spoke, gripping the handle of the suitcase.

I only nodded, flinging the straps of the backpack over my shoulders before clutching the smaller bag. I looked around my room once more before I knew I had to walk out. Staying there any longer would most likely only cause tears.

"Thanks, Liam, but I don't think so." I whispered, making my way down the staircase.

I heard Liam sigh as he followed me, helping pack my things onto the bus. The others soon made their way outside before loading the rest of Niall's belongings. I was silent as Niall began talking, tuning him out as he gave some sort of speech. All I could focus on was the empty road, hoping, wishing, praying that Harry's car would magically appear on the asphalt. But it never did. My thoughts were ripped away as Louis wrapped his arms around me, explaining how much he was going to miss me.

"Uh, yeah." I finally said. "I'm going to miss you too."

"What about me?" Zayn asked, literally pushing Louis out of the way before giving me a hug.

"Yeah, you too, Zayn."

I watched as Louis pouted his way over to Niall to say his final goodbyes, Zayn eventually following suite.

"You be careful, alright? There's a lot of weirdos out there. Don't forget to call or text. You can even write if you want! Just keep in touch, ok? And try to stay out of trouble, and listen to Niall, and-"

"Shut up and hug me already!" I giggled, rolling my eyes in the process.

"And watch that attitude." Liam smirked, tightly wrapping his arms around me.

"I'll try my best." I retaliated, tightening my grip around him.

Once we finally released our hold on each other, I returned my gaze once more to the road. I frowned upon seeing nothing, and I knew this was how it ended. No fairytale ending, no Harry, nothing. Just me and my fake smile that only Liam could see through. His hand was placed on my shoulder as he gave me a sympathetic look. I placed my hand on top of his as if to say thank you for his gesture without having to actually speak.

"Maybe he-" He stopped as I shook my head, not wanting to hear him try and cover for Harry. Making up an alibi for him couldn't help with the way I felt. Though I'm sure he must have a good reason, I still felt abandoned.

"I think it's time we hit the road, princess." Niall smiled. I nodded my head and gave everyone a final hug goodbye. I then followed Niall onto the bus, glancing back and watching the doors close behind me. I gave a final wave to the boys before finding a spot next to the window. "Can you believe this?! It's fantastic! Everything seems to be finally falling into place." Niall exclaimed.

"Yeah, it's great."

Niall noted the depressive tone in my voice before giving me an apologetic look. "I know you wanted him to come say goodbye, but maybe it's best he didn't."

"Of course that's what you would think!" I sobbed, the tears finally making their grand appearance. Niall sighed and went to take a seat opposite of me, leaving me to cry alone. I could hear the lads shouting as the engine started, knowing the bus was about to depart. I allowed myself one last look at my home before screaming as loud as I could. "Stop!"

Niall stared at me as I rushed to the doors, demanding they be opened. I flew from the bus before rushing into two strong arms and being lifted into the air. I was spun a few times before being placed on the ground, staring up at his emerald eyes.

"You didn't think I forgot, did you?" He smirked, wiping my tears with his thumbs as he cupped my face in his hands.

"What took you so long you idiot?!" I roughly hit his arm, still upset at thinking I almost didn't get to see him before leaving.

"Hey. I'm here now aren't I?" His lips were quickly pressed to mine as he held me close. "Hurry home." He grinned.

"I'll try." I replied. "Don't forget your promise you made me."

"Never." He spoke, giving me another kiss. The bus horn suddenly sounded, causing us to jump.

"We need to get going!" Niall called out.

"I'm coming!" I hollered, somewhat angered he was rushing me. With a final hug and kiss goodbye, I was on my way back to the bus.

"Katie!"

I quickly spun around before stepping into the large vehicle. "Yeah?"

"I love you."

"I love you too." I smiled, staring at him before having to climb inside the bus.

I rushed to the back as we began moving, frantically waving to Harry through the window. The last image I had of Harry was him standing in the middle of the street waving at me. And just like that, he was gone.

I returned to my seat before retrieving my iPod, selecting the song Harry had recorded for me. 'Our Song' as he had called it. With his voice on replay and five months go, I already couldn't wait to be back in his arms, to run my hands through his curly hair, to look into those deep green eyes, to be his. I just can't wait. I realized then that I had fallen in love with my bully, and at the end of the day, I didn't regret a thing.
