67. Everything Around Me Is Telling Me To Cry
I walked downstairs while Harry planted kisses over my shoulders, yes Harry please I need your affection more than anything right now. I felt a little bit embarrassed, since Liam and Niall were in the living room with Angela; and I didn’t even think of changing out of my Pjs.“Hey Becky, slept well?” Niall asked and Angela smiled; these two were sitting beside each other like marshmallow and Nuetella paste! Well, that cheered me up a little to see them get along.
“(I yawned as I sat down on the couch beside Harry.) Yeah I did. (I looked at Liam, who was not himself at all; what’s wrong now?) Hey Lili, are you ok?” Harry nudged my side, and I directly understood that I shouldn’t have asked; well how was I supposed to know?“(He sighed.) Angie? How about you and I prepare something for us to drink in the kitchen?” Niall clearly did that on purpose, so that we would be left alone in the room with Liam; well this isn’t that cheerful.
“Come on mate, talk to us. Becky’s here and she can help out as well.” Harry spoke as soon as Angela and Niall left the living room. “(Harry whispered in my ear.) Go sit beside him and try to make him tell you the whole story babe; I’ve been trying for the last two hours but it’s no use so far.” I nodded and went to sit beside Liam. “Li? What’s the matter? You can talk to me about it; come on let it out.” He groaned and spoke in a low tone.“Mate, could you leave me and Rebeca alone for like a couple of minutes please?” He asked Harry, as my boyfriend instantly answered: “Of course! I’ll go change my clothes.”He came to me to plant a kiss on my cheek, and left us alone.
“I’m listening; tell me what’s going on?” He looked at me and the poor thing slipped a tiny tear from his face, oh God no please don’t cry! I want to cry too! Stop giving me reasons to cry world! “Sophia said that she can’t handle the whole fame and paparazzi stalking, and she told me that perhaps that’s the reason for us to break it up between each other…” He wiped his tear from his right cheek and rested his head on the couches’ border. Poor thing! Thank God I wasn’t witnessed with Harry in public more than once; I guess that might have changed the whole perspective of our relationship; just like Liam’s and Sophia’s.
“Would you like me to talk to her about this?” He nodded and spoke: “Please do… It’s not like I knew here recently you know… we go way back since the days we attended the same school together, Becky… (He sighed.) I guess that this is really tough on me right now…” Without thinking further, I hugged Liam and he wrapped his arms around me in return; I cried deeply with no noise at all; because it made me remember my own issue that I’m facing right now with my mom’s illness.
“(He whispered as his arms slipped out from the hug.) Why are you crying? Did my story bother you?” I shook my head and sobbed a little more. “(He walked quickly to us, and knelt down to my level.) Baby what’s the matter?! Liam what did you tell her!?” Harry was confused, and so was Liam; he cupped my cheeks and looked at me warmly, pleading me with his eye contact for answers. Oh well, I better say it now; since I can’t take it anymore. “(I spoke while crying.) My mom… She um… She’s ill, and um… (I cried deeper as Harry hugged me tight in his arms, while scotching beside me.) She’s going to travel back tomorrow, and I just can’t deal with me being away from her at this time…” Harry hummed in my hair as he brought me tight in his touch: “Shhh… Just calm down angel, I promise you that we will figure something out… Relax, you’re safe with me now …” He kept racking me back and forth in his embrace till I stopped crying completely.
“Guys! We have tea, and we have something we want you to be the first to know!” The three of us looked at Niall and Angela, who were smiling at us as they walked back to the living room with a tray; I hope their news will cheer me up a little…
