I walk around the garden listening to music. I've been here for months and I haven't gotten a single lead. I've gotten considerably close to the boys, especially Louis. I walked into the house just in time to here the doorbell ring. I went to the door and answered it to see a girl in her twenties. "Hi Samantha! Where's Louis?" At first I was confused, who's Samantha? Oh yeah, it's me. "He's in the game room, who are you?" I ask. Just then Louis walks in. "Eleanor!" He yelled while running up to her. "Kend-erm, Samantha, this is my girlfriend, Eleanor." That was close, a little too close. We exchanged greetings. "What are you doing here, El? I thought you were busy." Louis asked. "I actually wanted to talk to you a bit, alone." She replied, I just slowly backed out of the room and into the music room. While I waited for them to finish talking I played random songs I knew.
They've been talking for over two hours and I'm starting to worry, not because they're talking but because of how secretive they're being. I walked into the kitchen to see if I could hear any of the conversation while 'getting a drink'. I couldn't here them too well but one thing got my attention.
"No, you can't do this." I think Louis said it, but I'm not sure. Then I heard the door slam and I walked into the living room to see Eleanor sitting on the couch with tears in her eyes. "What happened?" I questioned.
"I wanted to talk to Louis about our schedules because we never get to see each other, when I told him I don't think it's going to work out, he ran out of the house." I was shocked. She walked out of the house, leaving me staring at the now empty couch, trapped in my thoughts. What if he gets lost? What if the mans out there? What if he doesn't come back? I walk to the game room to see the boys playing CoD. "Harry, where does Louis go when he's upset?" I asked. "Usually to the park, or he goes to Eleanor's. Why?" He said without looking away from the game. "No reason." I answered before grabbing my coat and phone. I walked for a bit until I came to the park, it was bare, since it was December, but it was still beautiful.
I looked around a bit until I found Louis sitting under a weeping willow. "Are you alright Louis?" I said, making my presence known. He continued to sob as I walked over to him and wrapped my arms around the crying lad. Once Louis had control over his sobs, he pulled something out of his pocket, "I loved her, so much. I was going to propose tomorrow at dinner, but she, she left." Louis said opening a box showing the most beautiful ring I've ever seen, it had a blue diamond in the middle with small diamonds surrounding the bigger one. "Louis, it's beautiful." He let out a strained laugh, "Only the best for the best." I pulled him up off the ground and started guiding him home. "I don't think you would look good with a girl's ring on." I said trying to get him to smile. We stayed silent until we got home, Louis stared down at his feet while I guided him up the stairs to the house, I opened the door to see all the boys sitting around on their phones. Harry looked up and instantly looked worried. "What happened?" He asked shooting up and to the other side of Louis. who was still looking at his feet. "Nothing." I said walking up the stairs with Louis, I went to his room and sat him on his bed. "I'll leave you alone a bit, shout if you need anything." I said before walking back downstairs. Now all the boys were had worried expressions. "Eleanor broke up with Louis, he's taking it really hard, just don't bring it up." I explained as I sat down on the couch next to Harry and went on my phone looking for presents. Christmas was two weeks away and I still haven't bought the boys presents. I was thinking of buying Liam a kindle because he's always reading. Harry some video games, Niall some gift cards to Nando's, Zayn some hair gel he was crazy about, but I had no idea what to get Louis. I've been searching for a couple of days, but I haven't found something I liked.
I was looking at video games on my phone when I got a call on my phone. I didn't know the number but answered the phone anyways. "Hello?" I said.
"Kendal, this is Simon, I need you at my office, now." He said before hanging up.
I stood up and grabbed my coat. "Li, I'm going to Simon's office if anyone asks."
I walked out of the house and down the street, it was about 6:30, the sun would set in about an hour, so I should hurry. I walked past Ninth Street, the man was yelling over the phone, he always is every night. I got to the office building and went up to Simon's office, he looked stressed. "Kendal! Thank goodness! We need to find this caller, he sent me a little today, no return address, naturally." He said handing me a letter. I opened the letter.
I looked up at Simon questioningly."That's it, just, 11, nothing more, nothing less. But the worst part is, I got a letter exactly like this a month ago. Except it said 12." He said.
I looked back over the letter. "I'll look over it, I am trying." I said and walked out after grabbing the letters. I walked home deep in thought. No one was on the streets, except a few drunken clubbers. When I got home I immediately got in my pj's, grabbed a coffee and the letters, I was going to find out what they meant if it killed me. It was about midnight when Louis came downstairs, his hair was a mess, he was in sweats and a white t-shirt and his eyes were red. He seemed to not notice me as he went in the kitchen to make tea. He walks back out and jumps when he sees me. "Hey" I whisper trying not to wake the rest of the boys who went to bed about and hour ago. He grumbles a reply before sitting next to me on the window seat, he laid his head on my shoulder and he closed his eyes. "How ya feeling?" I ask, my eyes never leaving the letters. He doesn't reply but grabs the letters. "What are these?" He asks looking at them. Just some letters Simon got, I'm trying to find the meaning behind them, I think he's counting down the months, so basically, I have until November to find him." I say exhausted. He sets the letters aside and pulls me into a hug. "You'll figure it out, you're smart, amazing and beautiful." He slowly leans in, I close my eyes as I feel his lips touch mine, it was a soft and sweet kiss, full of emotion. He pulls away and we lean our foreheads together. Just then someone starts walking down the stairs, we instantly pull apart to see a shocked Niall staring at us. "Finally." He said.
