Louis’ point of view
It’s officially over. I have decided to move on and except that it was all supposed to happen. I take one more look at my phone, and put my head in my hands. She wasn’t going to call anymore, it wasn’t like she used to anyway. No wonder she was always so distant.
“Lou! Mate, come downstairs!” Harry yelled from the living room. I groan, grabbing a shirt and slipping it over my head. I run down the stairs and into the living room. Harry waits, sitting on the arm of the couch beside Niall. “What?” I cross my arms over my chest, and raise an eyebrow.
“Why don’t we go out tonight? Me, you, the rest of the boys?” Harry stands and throws his arm over my shoulders.
I shake him off, and Niall chuckles. I glare at him. "I don't want to go out. I'd rather stay here and drown in sorrow." I shrug my shoulders, and move away from Harry. He rolls his eyes. “No you wouldn’t.” Niall says.
“How would you know what I want?” I ask. Niall smiles brightly. “I’m smarter than you think Tommo.” Niall smirked, walking into the kitchen. I shook my head, turning towards Harry.
"You guys go, and have fun without me. I'll ruin your good time." I start to walk back upstairs but a small hand catches mine. I look down to see Lux. Her blonde hair is in a ponytail, and she looks absolutely adorable in her cheetah print dress. I smile.
“Uncle Lou? Will you take me to buy a toy?” Her blue eyes peer up into mine, and I couldn’t resist. “Baby, Uncle Lou isn’t-“ I cut Harry off with a sharp glance. “Sure baby. How about me you Uncle Harry and Uncle Niall go to the shops and get you some toys, yeah?” Lux giggled, nodding excitedly. “Alright. Go on and tell your mummy that we’re going okay?” I kissed her cheeks, and stand back up.
*Toy store with Lux
Lux is running around the shops, carrying loads of toys in her small arms. Niall wiped sweat off of his face, laughing. “Why are you laughing? She is fast! Where’s Harold?” I look around for Lux and Harry, but they’re nowhere to be found. I hear a little giggle from the next isle and I smirk at Niall. “Found her.” I slowly sneak around the corner, and see Lux in front of a girl.
“There you are Lux. What did we say about running off?” Niall strolled over to Lux, and smiled at the girl. I caught a glance at her, and my eyes immediately grew. Wow. She’s gorgeous. I clear my throat, walking over to them. Niall glares, giving me that ‘I saw her first’ look. I ignore him. “Hi. I’m Louis and this is Niall. thank you for finding her.” I politely grin at her. She smiles back. “You’re welcome Louis. I’m Ashton by the way.” She waves, and picks at her fingers. Ashton. What a beautiful name.
“Beautiful name for a beautiful girl.” Harry smiles, his dimples popping out of his cheeks. Damn. I wish I had dimples like that. Ashton’s cheeks turned a dark shade of pink, and she giggled.
“Thank you. Well, um. My friends should be a round here somewhere. I think I outa go find them. I’ll see you guys around?” She glances my way, and I nod. “Absolutely! Maybe you and your friends could come over someday?” I asked, hoping she wouldn’t turn me down.
“Sure. I’m certain that the girls would like to meet you. I got to go. Bye guys! Bye Lux!” She called, as she ran off down the aisle.
When she was out of sight, Niall punched my arm. “What the hell Louis! How come I never get to talk to a girl? You just got out of a relationship, and you were all mopey. So don’t even.” His pale face turned red with anger, and I let out a little sigh. “Sorry Ni. She’s just…different.”
