Five long weeks passed, I looked all over the city, but Bella was nowhere to be found. Harry and Megs even wanted to help me look for her. The two officially started dating when we had a a break a few weeks ago. They didn't want tell anyone until after tour. The only ones who knew about it was Bella and myself.
Harry and Bella had become really close in the short time she was with the band. That's why he told only the two us. But, no matter how close they where, she still hadn't told him where she was. All I needed was to see her again and tell her that no matter what was going on I would be there for her. I needed to hold her in my arms again, to tell her that I love her. Ever since she left it made me realize that I cant live without her. Her kind and selfless heart has made has made me a better man in everyday possible.
"Where could she be?" Megs asked Harry as I sat down on the nearest park bench.
"Your guess is as good as mine Megs. Wait! Doesn't she have family in the US? I think she said something about her aunt on her mothers side living in San Diego."
"She never said anything about an aunt. All she told me was that she didn't like to talk about her family that much." I finally jumped in.
Just then, Harry's phone rang. He gazed at the caller Id. "I gotta take this." He said as he started to walk away to answer the phone. I closed my eyes and leaned my head back. I pictured the last time I see Bella. I should have seen that something wasn't right about her that morning. I should have stopped her. Why was I so stupid. Harry came and tapped me on the arm. Broken from the trance, I looked up.
"Hey Mate I have to go. That was my agent. I will text you later. Sorry I cant stay and help you look."
"No, its ok. I'll see you later. Megs and I will keep looking. You take care bud."
Harry walked over to his car and drove off.
I hate lying to Niall, but I had no choice. I promise Bella that I wouldn't tell him that she called. She asked me to dive to Belfast and meet her outside of St. Malachys church. I waited for two hours, but she didn't show. I was about leave thinking that she was never going to come. As I was walking back to my car, she walked up to me.
"Hey! Niall and I have been worried sick about you." I said as I hugged her tight.
"I have to make this quick. How is Niall and my family?" She asked in a rush.
"Like I said, they are worried sick about you. Look Bella, why don't you just come home. You are only hurting yourself and the ones who love you. Niall, he can't sleep anymore, he just lies there and looks up all night. He goes on and on about how he can't live without you. Bella Come Home, Please,"
"I can't Harry." She said trying with all her might to choke back her tears. "You know I cant. I just need time... time to think."
"Bella that is complete and utter Bull shit! What is there to think about? It has been five weeks." Harry steamed.
"Harry dont. Please don't do this to me. I promise I will come back. But it has to be in my own time. Just Niall I still love him with all my heart."
"He is going to ask where you are. You know he will."
"Tell Him. But I wont be here when he comes."
"Alright." Harry said with a sigh. "Just tell me one thing. Why did you leave to begin with? And the truth, you cant lie to me Bella."
NO! Tell me!"
Bella looked to the ground and let her tears fall freely. She was hurting, I could see that. She was thiner now and her eyes had lost their glow. It was as if the bright blue that once enriched them had died away and became dull. I walked over and wrapped her a warm hug.
"I left because of the fans. And that is the truth Harry. I promise."
"Don't let them get to you. They did the same thing to Louis when his son was born. And they did it to me when I did that movie.''
''Look I have to go. Goodbye Harry."
"Bye Bella. Please come home soon."
She said nothing in return, she only nodded and walked the other way. Now came the hard part facing Niall.
