Now that I finally realized who I want to be with, I needed to tell Luke my decision and find a way to tell Niall that I still love him. He must felt like shit for the past month or so, gotta figure out a way to make it up to him. First thing first, call Luke.
"Hey Luke! Can you talk right now?"
"Oh hey Casey! Ya sure! have you decided?" he asked with excitement.
It broke my heart to tell him the truth, but it had to be done.
"Yeah I have," I answered subtly.
"I...I...still love Niall..."
"I'm so sorry Luke!"
"Hey don't be! it's not your fault..."
"Are you still willing to be my friend? I can't bear the thought of losing a dear friend like you," I said quietly.
"Of course! I'll always be here for you when you need me!"
"Thanks, Luke," I said gratefully, "wanna meet up for coffee later?"
"Sure! I'm actually at the studio with the boys right now finishing up final touches of a few recording before we leave next week. Wanna swing by and we can go to the nearest Starbucks?"
"Sounds good! I'll be there in an hour."
An hour later~~
I decided to stop by Starbucks before heading to their studio since I knew what those four hyper boys want. I needed all of their brains to come up with a good idea to get Niall back. It would be a torture for Luke to help me brainstorm this idea, but I couldn't ask the 1D boys because they would definitely spoil the surprise. With various flavours of frapp, I knocked on their studio door; Calum answered.
"Starbucks!" he yelled.
"Good to see you too Calum," I said sarcastically.
"Just kidding, Case! I miss you!" he gave me a hug after putting the drinks down on the table. Then come running the rest of the band and engulfed me in a group hug.
"OMG Casey! It's been ages since we last saw you as a band *cough* how are you doing?" Michael practically screamed.
I immediately killed the mood by saying, "About that...I need all of your help with something..."
"What's wrong?" Ashton asked as he led to to the lounge.
"Well...after tons of thinking for the past month, I felt like an asshole for not accepting Niall's apology; and I realized that I cannot live happily without him, so I want to get him back," I explained. I could tell from the corner of my eyes that Luke was feeling a bit awkward.
"That's great news! Why don't you just call him right now and tell him? They are going on their tour tomorrow!" Calum said.
"I want to make it special though!"
"And how do you plan to do that?" Luke asked trying to be normal.
"I don't know...that's why I'm asking you guys."
"How about you go to the airport tomorrow to surprise him?" Ashton suggested.
"That's too simple! Plus there's gonna be tons of fans around," said Michael.
"Ya I agree with Michael," I said.
"How about you surprise him on the tour?" Calum suggested.
"That could work, but Niall is gonna have to wait a bit longer," said Luke.
"Whatever, it's worth waiting for! I was thinking that Casey can fly to Vancouver when they have their Vancouver show because she's from Vancouver. Niall's gonna be most depressed when they are there," Calum finished his thought.
"Wow! Brilliant plan Cal!" complimented by Michael.
"Thanks Mikey! what do you think Case?"
"I love it! Now I just gotta talk to Paul about it and talk to the 1D boys closer to the day."
"Awesome! When do you plan on telling him? I mean like before the gig or during or after?" Luke asked.
"How about you talk to the other boys before hand, and you walk up the stage right after they sing Little Things?" asked Michael.
"Yeah! Good idea! They always sing Little Things for every gig they ever have since that song was released more than half a decade ago." Calum added.
"Sounds good! That's gonna be the plan!" I said, "thank you so much, guys!"
"No problem! Anytime!" said Ash.
"Seems like I owe you guys a dinner, what do you say?" I asked fully aware of the answer.
"Free dinner? Hell yeah!" Michael yelled.
"Can we go to Nandos? Please?" asked Ash.
"Of course, but you guys gotta finish my your work first! I'll be here when you're done!"
"Alright! See you later Casey!" they said in unison.
The next day at airport~~
I couldn't believe that we were leaving for tour again...Casey didn't come; I had no news from her except that Harry told me Luke visited almost every day. It was the worst feeling ever! Leaving for the tour knowing that my wife was with another man, and that man is my friend! I could only hope that nothing happens between them... I guessed I should put my personal feelings aside and concentrate on the tour; I didn't want to disappoint the band or the fans. I just didn't know how I was going to complete the show at Vancouver without breaking down half way through...We'll see...
