That Trip

One trip to London England could change one 17 year olds life forever. What happens when she meets five new friends and they introduce her to the best summer of her life.


27. Saying Goodbye

Ashley's POV

I'm finally allowed to leave the hospital. It's a little bittersweet because I'm glad I get to leave but at the same time if I remained in the hospital I wouldn't have to leave London. My plane is at 8 am tomorrow morning. It's going to be so weird to be back home. Over the months here I've considered this my home and it always will be. I haven't talked to Niall since he came by my room yesterday. I can't even believe it's true. I mean I knew we would have to break up once I left but I thought he would at least wait until that day.

He said he broke up with me because he didn't want me to have that attention but I have it anyway. Paparazzi have been lined up outside the hotel for days. And now as I walk out the doors they're still there.

"Where's Niall?"

"Are you fully healed?"

"What's the story?"

The fact is there is no story. Niall dumped me and I am going to do my best to enjoy this last day. I have spent the majority of my trip in London sad and in pain. I'm done doing that. I loved Niall I really did and I still do but if he can't appreciate it then fine. I'm done for good!


I am currently packing up all my stuff and I hate this feeling. The feeling of regret and guilt. I regret that I spent all my time here caught up in drama with boys and didn't get to appreciate the fact that I was in London. And then guilt because I shouldn't regret getting to know the guys and all the amazing times we had. A knock on the door pulls me out of my thoughts. When I open the door in comes all the guys except one. I think you can guess who it is.

"Guys what are you doing here?" They all stand around me in a semi circle.

Louis is the first one to speak "well we knew you were leaving tomorrow so we wanted to spend one more night with you." I wrap him into a hug and when I pull away I do the same to all the guys.

"Thank you."

"No Niall?" I know I said I didn't care but come on everyone cares a little bit.

The guys all look down and I take that as my answer. I then lead them all to the couch and they all sit down as I grab water bottles out of the fridge and throw one to each of them.

"We're really going to miss you." The silence is broken by Harry.

"I'm going to miss you too. This was the best summer of my life." I lean my head on Louis's shoulder and we all just sit there and take in the silence.

"Can you guys give this to Niall once I leave." I hand a note to Louis and he nods as his answer.


The guys have all left and it is just me and my thoughts laying in bed. I turn on some music to help me fall asleep and thankfully soon I am out like a light.


I am woken up by a loud ringing in my ear. I open my eyes to hear that it's my alarm clock signaling it's 6 and it's time to get up. I reluctantly pull myself out of bed and jump in the shower. As the hot water runs down my body I remember all my times here in London.


My dad and I are sitting at the airport waiting for our bags to be checked. I look back once more

to see if anyone is there. I know it's silly to hope that he comes but I can't help it.

My dad knows how hard this has been and surprisingly he has been really nice about the whole thing. I pick up my carry on and walk to security. Just as I am about to hand them by passport I hear someone yelling my name. I turn around to see Niall and about 50 paparazzi running towards me. I get out of line and run to meet him.

"Niall what are you doing here?"

"I... got...your...letter." He says in between breaths. He puts his hands on his knees to catch his breath.

"What'd you do run here?"

"Basically." He takes a deep breath of air before telling me why he came all the way here.

"I got your letter and you were right."

I look at him a little confused as to what I was right about.

"I took the easy way out and I should have been there with you your last day and I'm sorry."

"You-" I'm interrupted by Niall's hand in my face.

"I know it's a lame apology but I love you and the fact that I was losing you hurt me more then I let on. Now I know we can't have a relationship across the Atlantic Ocean but I needed to be here to at least tell you goodbye."

By this point a crowd has formed including all the paparazzi and a bunch of bystanders with cameras.

Niall looks at me waiting for my response but I don't know what to say.

So I do the only thing I know what to do I kiss him.


Hey guys so I was going to end it with them breaking up and just do a sequel but then I got an idea for a new book. So I decided to just end it here and I might write and epilogue so look for that in the future. Love you guys!
