23. Chapter 23

Leah's POV

I'm really worried. It been half an hour since Riley left the house. She woke us all up when she slammed the door. "Guys, where is she?" I paced the room. "I don't know, why don't you ask Niall Horan the backstabber?!" Louis glared at Niall. Niall sighed. "How many times do I have to say I'm sorry!" "Zero, cause I will never forgive you." I groaned along with Lottie, the boys were being a pain. "You guys are being how you say 'a royal pain'." Louis rolled his eyes, and Niall just sighed for the millionth time today. The door opened and a sniffling Riley walked in. "RILEY!" I screamed. "Oh you're all up." She shut the door gently. "Yeah, you woke us up when you slammed the door. But don't worry, it wasn't like I dreaming of Taylor Laughtner and sexy abs or anything." Lottie jokes. Riley laughs a little. "Yeah sorry bout that. Uh Louis." He turned to her. "I need to talk to you like right now, in the kitchen." Louis made some kind of sound but he didn't budge. "I'll do it." Lottie says, walking over to Louis who was laying down on the loveseat. Lottie took his leg and yanked him onto the floor. He groaned, but got up walking into the kitchen. I sat down beside Niall. "Look, Niall. Riley is a great girl and her intentions are pure but she's gonna struggling at the moment with everything with the memory so just give her some time." He nodded and smiled, her obviously had feeling for her, I mean who wouldn't it's the freckles and her charm. She's everything I want to be.

Louis' POV

I couldn't stand to look at Riley so I didn't. I stared at the cupboards, my back to her. "Look Louis you have every right to be mad." I stay silent. I do have every right. "I mean I kissed your best mate." I rolled my eyes. He was my ex best mate now. "But you also gotta be a little forgiving." I scoffed. She wants me to cut her some slack? I scoff even louder at the idea. "I don't know what really happened before the incident. What really went on between us." She did prove a very good point that she did lose her memory. "I just...I'm sorry. If you never want to speak to me. I understand. I know nothing I say will make you feel better so it's probably better if I just shut my mouth." She finishes. I turn around. She's about to walk out the kitchen. She catches my glance and I feel a lump in my throat as her eyes were pooling in sadness and her body language was just hitting you with waves of sadness. Her shoulders slouched, her fingers fumbling with each other, her body just looked like it was drowning in sadness. Sadness that I had caused. She walked out the kitchen and I stood there in silence. How could this happen?! I just let her slip through my fingers once again! I could have forgiven her and proved I could love her more than Niall or any other guy could but instead I let her walk out. I groan tugging at my hair. She's gone, once again Louis. I'm afraid she won't come back.
