They morning they left was more painful than we thought it would be. We have grown so attached to them that we forgot who they actually are. They are our best friends; even though it hasn't been over a month, but more importantly, they are one direction. We can't call them whenever we want and just hang out. We can't drink coffee in public. We can't pretend we are kids again and go to the playground. We can't throw sand at each other in the sand pit. We have to work around the obstacles in our way of friendship. We have to realise that one direction isn't ours.
We have to share one direction with the whole world, Sophie and I do. We have to learn that their other fans out there need them.
So on the morning they left, I didn't come to the airport.
Neither Sophie, but she put up a fight. Management doesn't like us interfering too much. I've heard little Fanfictions about friends going on tour with them, but management wouldn't even CONSIDER us going on the bus. One direction is too popular to have girls distracting them.
I was able to let them go easier than Sophie. She cried. Harry cried. Louis cried. I have them all hugs, kisses on the cheek. I waved them off in their limo, ignoring their screaming fans across the street. I had gone back inside, smiling at their success, patting Sophie's back as she sobbed into her hands.
This morning was different, though.
I still haven't rises from bed. I know they are just on tour, and I know that it isn't a big deal, but it's for 3 months. I thought that I would be fine, that I would be able to accept the fact that my newly found best friends won't e available all the time, but it's just that they are my only (apart from tom) guy friends. It's making me miss tom as well.
I don't even know how Sophie is doing.
She decided to let me sleep in my own bed for tonight, just to have some space. She kept telling me that reality would crush my insides soon enough, and that I would need to cry.
I squint at my watch.
I groan and turn over to my side to see Sophie standing there.
"Reality crushing your insides, kitty kat?"
I nod sadly. She smiles weakly, wet patches in her eyes, and climbs into my bed.
"I don't know why I'm so sad; they will be back soon enough" I sigh.
"I miss Harry, I guess that's why I'm worse than you"
I roll my eyes
"You've always been the one telling me that I need to get over it"
"Well, its your turn to tell me to shut up"
I shake my head.
"Not this time"
I suddenly jump out of bed and head towards the bathroom.
"Im going to have a shower, then go out to the shops for a sec. Stay here in bed or do whatever, I have an idea"
"ILL BE BACK SOON SOPH"
I hear a faint reply, then slam the door shut. Sophie being sophie, she will probably like my idea.
I wrap my coat around me tightly as I realise that its raining. We didnt even notice..
Oh well. We have our excuses.
I start the car in a hurry and grin in the side mirror to myself. I'm looking forward to this. Its one of my favourite activities.
I look over my shoulder and start to reverse out of the drive. I gasp loudly as a vibration comes from my pocket. I take deep breaths before answering the call.
"You gave me a heart attack, Niall"
I hear him chuckle over the phone. I quickly put the phone in the car holder handset and connect it to Bluetooth.
"So Katie, whats been going on"
"Its been like, half a day and you still want to know whats going on?"
"Yes! A lot can happen"
"Can" I mumble.
"Sooooo whats happenin? What are you doing right this minute? You sound like you're on a motorbike"
"Im driving to the grocery store"
"Oh god Katie you shouldnt be using the phone-"
"Relax, Im using Bluetooth"
"Ok. So you're going shopping"
"Not exactly. Im getting some supplies, mainly for Sophie"
" NO NO not like that god Niall oh no no no no"
I stop at some red traffic lights and try to stop laughing.
"Oh.." I can just here him scratching his neck awkwardly.
"It food, but you know. She needs to forget Harry at the moment so she can survive until he comes back"
He lets out a big sigh.
"I get it. Sorry. Its your fault I took it the wrong way"
I roll my eyes.
"Of course. So whats been going on with you and One direction?"
He chuckles quietly.
"You know, everyday stuff. Singing, performing, joking around"
"Hmmphf. Totally not exciting or anything"
I quickly grab my phone out of the holder (which disconnects from bluetooth) and raise the phone to my ear as I get out of the car, locking it as I close the door.
"Yeah very funny"
"I thought it was"
I glance around me, half expecting them to stare. If they only knew who I am talking to..
"We are gunna do a concert in like, 2 hours. Harry has been so down lately"
"Maybe its because he cant suck face with Sophie for 3 months"
"Thats what I said to him, but he just rolled his eyes"
"How everybody else?"
"The usual. Louis is obbsessed with oreos. Liam is just.. Liam. Zayn is sleeping"
"Hmmm sounds like the usual"
"Oh crap one sec Katie"
I here him put the phone down to talk to somebody. A male. Deep voice. Harry.
I quickly run over to the chocolate section and wait patiently for Niall to return.
"I gotta go Katie, Ill call tomorrow?"
I laugh again.
"Yeah, just to make sure nothing has happened between now and then"
He laughs too.
"Cya Kitty Kat. Hope Sophie feels ok"
I go to hang up, but I here a faint voice as I take the phone away from my ear.
"I miss you. We all do"
"I miss you too. And the guys. Tell them I said hi."
"I will. Cya, kitty kat"
Sophie and I pigged out on absolute crappy food. We ate chocolate and chips and
