Better Together ~ Shawn Mendes

Maybe that's the problem with everyone. We give up. To easily. But . . . that's just the thing, isn't it? Giving up is easy. It's easy to walk away. It's easy to not face the problem. It's easy to not fight. It's so damn easy.
And I have the same fault.
"shawn, I love you. And I know you love me. But this was never going to work and I'm sorry that this has to be this way. I love you and I hope you find a way to be happy some day; to find someone who can make you happy. But for now you need to be a father, and a boyfriend, to someone that isn't me." I choke out finally.


7. the after math

Bries pov


It's been 2 days since shawn and I became official. Honestly I was to afraid of what people would say so my phone's been off since. I don't know how I've lived without it for 2 days as it is, but today I woke up and everyone was gone. So . . . I kinda need to find out where people are, perfectly good reason to turn on my phone right? Yeah, yeah it is.

I watch as the screen lights up and my lock screen of shawn and I kissing while he holds me up bridal style pops up. I slide it open and see the 2, 894 Twitter notifications. Is that even possible? I have an overwhelming urge to open my Twitter and see what people are saying, but I resist. I just need to find out where the guys are. I call shawn first and he picks up - thankfully - on the second ring.

"Brie? Hey, you're finally awake!" shawn says.

"shawn! Where are you guys?" I question. It doesn't seem right for them to just leave me here alone.

"Um, we're just downstairs, didn't you see us?" Oh. The lobby. Downstairs. That would make sense. I hear him laugh and I just roll my eyes.

"Be down in a sec." I say, hanging up. I get out of bed - yes I'm still in bed, don't judge - and quickly get dressed into some comfy day clothes, making my way down to the lobby. I see Nash first and run to him, jumping on his back since it was facing me. He lets out a girly scream and then turns his head to see me and groans. I laugh wildly and hop off, walking over to shawn who's talking with Carter and Cam.

"Hey baby." I say, propping my elbow up on his shoulder. He turns and smiles at me, kissing my cheek.

"Hey Brie." he returns to his conversation and I quickly get bored and walk over to Mahogany.

"When's our flight today?" I ask her, just realizing that we have a flight out to Colorado where we'll meet up with Jenna.

"At 2 I think." I glance at my watch which I've been wearing around to avoid looking on my phone - 12:14. Wow, I slept late. Oh well, the VIP meet and greet was exhausting yesterday and didn't end until 11 o' clock at night and by the time we dispersed to all of our hotel rooms it was almost 1am. So to say I was tired is an understatement. But I'm all well rested now. Or at least, mostly rested. After talking and socializing for another half hour Nash shouts out.

"Alright guys! Time to head to the airport! We've got a flight to catch!" we all cheer and head out to the limo with our suitcases which we had previously packed yesterday morning before the flight.


We are finally in Colorado, and currently looking around for gate 5B where Jenna is coming out of. Finally we locate it and as we walk through the crowd I spot her blonde head and shout.

"Jenna! Over here!" she smiles at me and runs over, giving me a big hug. She releases me and starts giving all of the boys hugs, oddly calm, cool, and collected. After she's done she turns to me with a wide smile on her face.

"Okay. Let's go." so we do. We all pile into the limo - which is crazy by the way - and head to the hotel we're staying at. Mahogany, Jenna, and I are all sharing a room, but Mahogany gets a bed to herself, which means Jenna and I will just sleep in the other.

Soon we get to the large hotel and find our rooms - after receiving our room keys - and we all go our separate ways to unpack and stuff.

"So, how have you been?" I ask Jenna She shrugs.

"It's been really boring at school without you, but I'm great now! How about you?" she replies quickly.

"I've been great! Although, after #shie went official, I haven't turned on my phone - only once this morning to call shawn , otherwise I haven't." she raises an eyebrow. "I don't want to go on Twitter or get any notifications or whatever because of the hate." I explain. She nods and continues to unpack. Soon I get a text from the boys' and I's group chat saying: meet in Nash's room, movie night!

I tell Jenna and we head to Cam and Nash's room, I hadn't even realized that it was 10pm already, and was dark outside. Jenna and I are the last one's to arrive and while she goes and sits by Cameron and Mahogany, I go over to shawn, sitting down and cuddling as the movie begins. I don't even know what movie we're watching and honestly I don't care. Everywhere that shawns skin is in contact with mine is on fire, and there are shivers running up and down my spine. It's like the first date jitters, and we haven't even been on the first date yet! Hey, we haven't been on a first date. Hm. I'll have to do something about that.

As the ending credits roll down the screen I look around me to see I was the only one who stayed awake through the second movie - The Avengers - and everyone else was knocked out in various positions. I take out my phone, my body not listening to my mind, opening Twitter and scrolling through my notifications.

"You have no business being with MY man, get the hell away from him!!!"

"shawn deserves so much better."

So many more, calling me ugly and a slut, and to kill myself continue popping onto my screen; the after math of me and shawns relationship. Everything runs through my mind, tears rolling down my cheeks. I get up and walk back to my own hotel room, getting into pajamas and sitting on my bed, my phone on the table beside my bed. My thoughts are bouncing around, each one worse than the next.

And eventually my mind comes across the worse one, yet easiest escape. To just go back to being an ordinary girl, back at home in Michigan.

But that would mean leaving MAGCON.

And all of the boys.

And Jenna and Mahogany.

And most importantly. Leaving shawn...
