12. Chapter 12
I stared at the number on my phone and sighed before pressing call. "Hey baby." Louis' voice rang through the phone. "Hi Lou." I said. "I can't wait to come over later." He said huskily through the phone. "About that... can you come over another time? Niall and I got into a fight and he's been gone for about an hour and I don't know where he is and I'm going insane and I just really have to talk this out." I said through the phone, my voice full of frustration. "Of course baby. Do you want me to go look for him?" Louis asked and I sighed. "No it's fine. He might get angry when he sees you." I sighed. "Okay baby, just text me when he's home okay?" I smiled at how sweet Louis was, making this harder and harder for me with the second. "I will. Bye baby." I said through the phone. "Bye." I heard Lou take a quick deep breath. "I love you, Mel." He said through the phone and I sat shocked in my seat. "I- I-" He cut me off. "I'm sorry." He said before hanging up. Great. Why do I always ruin everything. I threw my phone at the wall angrily, putting my head in my hands as I sobbed quietly.
I was still sobbing on the couch when the door opened and closed. I heard giggled and felt my heart drop as I saw Niall walk into the room with a random girl on his arm. "We're going to my room." He said blankly, pulling the blonde up the stairs. I threw a random pillow at the wall. The house phone rang and picked up slowly. "Hello?" I asked trying to sound normal. "Sweety..." My mom said. This could never be good. "Sweety your dad died. I just got the phone call. I'm sorry." And because I'm a fuckup and ruin everything all I did was hang up. I hung up on the one person that could actually help me. I slid on my black vans and let my hair slide over my shoulders as I pulled the hood of my grey zip up hoodie over my head. I left the house, slamming the door loudly.
I walked through the dark streets, not knowing where to go. I didn't have many friend and Louis was probably mad at me. Niall is fucking some random girl in my house and I don't know what to do. So I walked. I walked towards the house of the only person I could think off. Liam. Liam and I had been pretty close and texted alot. He was a good friend and probably one of the only people I trusted. I walked up the steps and rang the doorbell. "Hello- darling are you okay?" A woman asked and I whiped my eyes even though I knew it would probably make it worse. "I-is Liam here?" I asked shakingly. She nodded and looked at me concerned. "I'll go get him." SHe said before walking back into the house, leavng the door open. Liam soon walked outside. "Melanie?" He asked and I looked up. "Holy shit, are you okay?" As soon as the words left his lips I started sobbing. He didn't say anything, he just pulled me into a hug. "Come on, let's go to my room." He whispered and pulled me inside. "Mum we're going to my room!" Liam yelled. "Okay dear. If you want anything just ask." She said and Liam pulled me up the stairs, and into his room.
"Do you wanna talk about it?" Liam asked. "This is the worst night of my life." I sobbed shaking my head no. "What's up, love?" I sniffled and started telling him everything about Niall, Louis and me everything until now and he just hugged me. He didn't judge me. He didn't do or say anything. He just hugged me. So I hugged him back. "My dad died today." I whispered. "I know I shouldn't care since he left my mom and all..." I whispered painfully. "But you do, don't you?" He asked and I nodded, sniffling. "He's my dad." I whispered and Liam continued to hug me. "Niall is at my house fucking a random girl, Louis probably hates me and I hung up on my mom while she is one always there for me." I sighed. "What's wrong with me Liam?" I asked sniffling, my voice sounded muffled due to my head being in Liam's chest. Liam rubbed my back and held me a little tighter.
"Nothing's wrong with you, Mel." He whispered in my ear, trying to calm me down. A part deep inside of me wanted to believe his words, it really did. But no matter what.
I knew he was lying.
