" I didn't want it to happen like this but, I just have to." Niall sighed loudly letting out a deep breathe of air. He leaned slowly towards my face and kissed me softly on the lips. It was pleasant and not forceful, I calmed down instantly and kissed him back. I could feel a smile creep onto his face and he pulled away laughing a little bit." You have no idea how long I've waited to do that." He laughed shyly blushing a deep red. I smiled at him widely not knowing what to say.
Then it suddenly popped into my head. " Why did you pick know to kiss me?"
He looked at me puzzled. " Hasn't Harry or Zayn told you already?." I looked at him puzzled. " Oh God, they haven't."
I started to cry not knowing what was going on. All I knew was that whatever it was, it wasn't good. " What is it Niall? Please tell me."
He had tears in his eyes now and in a scratchy voice he said. " We're leaving Juls."
I looked at him puzzled. " What do you mean you're leaving? Like for a month or for vacation? You'll be back right?"
He shook his head violently as tears poured out of his eyes. He turned around and hit the wall. " No Julia, management has decided that it was a stupid idea for us to go to high school. We're going on a tour and moving to L.A. we're not coming back."
At this I collapsed onto the floor and put my head in my hands. " This can't be happening to me." I cried out. Niall leant' down beside me and rubbed my back until I stopped crying.
"We leave tomorrow." He whispered in my ear. "We're all going to Zayn's house tonight to spend our last night in England together if you want to come." I nodded at him and he helped me up. I called my Mom and explained to her that I was going to tutoring that night and staying at a friends house that I had met there. She agreed and I was off to Zayn's house.
As Niall and I pulled up into the drive way, all off the boys were standing at the front door waiting for us to arrive. When my eyes locked with Harry's I felt tears prickle up in my them and the pain began to become unbearable. He walked up to me and gave me a huge protective hug. " So, I guess Niall spilt the beans." He said in a sad voice.
I stood there for another couple of seconds listening to his steady heart beat and wondering how I was that lucky to have spent as much time as I had with him. I slowly pealed my head away from his chest and looked straight into his eyes. " You knew you were leaving the school two weeks ago, and you never told me. On top of that you waited way to long to ask me to be yours. You've only been mine for a day and you're already leaving me." Tears were now slowly tricking down my face. It was the worst feeling I had ever felt in my life.
I looked down at the ground and he quickly pulled my face up so that I was looking into his eyes. " Yes, I know, but I will come back. I will never forget you Juls. You changed my life and I, well I guess I love you." He kissed the top of my head and held me in complete silence.
All of a sudden Zayn cleared his throat and said. " It's really adorable that you two love birds are having a magical movie moment right now but, I don't want to drag out the horrible reality of tomorrow today. I just want to have fun. It's probably the last night that we'll ever spend in England. Hell, it's probably the last night we'll ever spend with Julia. Lets make the best of it."
We all agreed with Zayn and headed inside of his house. We all sat down on his couch when all of the boys phones started to ring simultaneously. " It's a text from Simon." Louis stated. " It says that our plane has been moved to tonight and we only have an hour to get to the air port." At this I felt my heart being ripped out of my chest and stabbed multiple times with a rusted old fork. I didn't want to except it but, that was truly the end.
All of the boys packed their stuff into their cars and I drove in silence with Harry to the airport. When we arrived at the airport all of us waited in silence dreading when the lady would call that their flight would be boarding. And after 20 minutes that moment had finally come. All of the boys gave me long caring hugs and Zayn cried as he walked away. Wiping his thumb vigorously underneath of his eyelids to try and cover up his pain.
Last to say goodbye was Harry. He wrapped his arms firmly around my body and started to weep into my hair. " Before I leave." He said chocking over his words. " I have to do this." He got down on one knee and pulled out a little black box. He opened it and revealed a ring with a bunch of little diamonds in the shape of a heart. My face turned white. " Don't worry, it's just a promise ring. It's a promise I am making to you that someday I will comeback. I will never leave you. It also symbolizes that you are willing to wait. It could be 25 years for all I know but, you have to promise me you will wait."
I looked him straight in the eyes and said. " I promise." He smiled widely at me and put the ring on my finger giving me a kiss before walking towards his gate. " Harry." I screamed after him. He turned around abruptly. " Promise me that you'll keep your promise. I just need to hear it from your lips once."
" I promise Juls." He said sadly. " I'll be back as soon as we make history." And with that Harry walked away, through his gate and flew off on the plane. And all that was left with me was a ring to a promise that through the years I will never have forgotten, and all the memories that still linger in my brain to this day. It has been ten years since Harry has left but, I still love him and until I die, I will always be waiting.
