2. Take me back
Here we are back in England, boring old England. The best part is seeing Jess, maybe who know's if she'll remember me, it has been a year after all. The flight was long and I sat there restless for the majority of it. After about an hour I swapped places with Zayn and sat down next to Louis, as Harry was asleep. We talked for 2 hours until he finally gave in and let himself sleep, leaving me the only one awake. I thought about our time in America, and how it changed us all. What I fear is that what happened in America will stay in America, and we'll go back to how we were. The past year has been the best year of my life, and I never wanted it to end. Unfortunately everything has to end. I don't know how but the airport was filled with hundreds of fans as we got off the plane. I excused myself and left them alone with the fans, the fans don't want me there.
I waited outside sitting on the pavement as I heard screams from inside. The weather here was certainly much worse than America, noticing the rain pour down I put on my hat and rubbed my arms. "Do you want my jacket?" I heard a voice say and I turned to see Tyler. I jumped up and wrapped my arms around him "what are you doing here?" I shrieked, probably deafening him.
He shrugged "we thought we'd welcome you home." I raised my brow until I saw Jess and Louise pop round the corner holding out their arms. I ran into them as they welcomed me home, I didn't know how much I missed them until now. "I can't believe you came" I exclaimed, I never expected this, not at all.
"Fancy a drink?" Jess asked a smile playing at her lips and I nodded. We went to a bar not far from the airport and I ordered myself a beer. Sitting here drinking my beer I realised I was happy, actually happy to be back. "So" Jess lent her chin on her hands "are you going to tell us about it or what?" I thought for a second, what was there to tell? And for some reason I felt like it was private, like it was our experiences no one else's. I looked at their waiting eyes and said "you know I'm pretty tired from all the travelling, we'll have a proper conversation about it soon?"
Louise sighed "fine but we've been waiting a year for this Morris."
I tilted my head shocked to hear her call me by that name, "Morris?" I asked.
She shrugged "It's sort of catched on over here, you don't mind do you?"
"No" I lied "It's fine, just took me by surprise that's all." They were my reminder that my life was once normal, that I'm still that person I always was. Calling me by name was a symbol of that, and now that has been ripped away from me. My phone vibrated in my pocket and I looked at it to see it was Harry. "Hey" he said to me "you disappeared where are you Morris?" This was a moment I had to share with them and only them "I'll see you at yours later, just having a drink" I told him and he sighed. The stress of England has already gotten to him and it hasn't even been an hour.
Jess patted my arm "you can go now, we'll talk tomorrow."
I felt bad but I did want to go back with Harry "are you sure?" I asked her and she nodded. "Harry meet me at the pub down the road from the airport" I said to him and hung up. Minutes later he came through the door smiling at me "you ready to go Morris?" After hugging everyone I nodded and followed him out. "Are you okay?" he asked raising his brow, I forgot he could read me like a book.
"This place is a reminder of everything that has happened. I don't know how I had forgotten about it" I said looking down. It hasn't been long at all since my brother died, and I miss him so much, no matter how much he put me through. Harry pulled me close to him and kissed me "don't look at it like that, think of it as the next chapter of your life. I'm happy Morris, it's been one year and we're still together" he closed his eyes and I kissed down on his neck. "I love you" I told him and his eyes opened "so much" he said in return and kissed me again.
