"Hi, I'm Brittany, and you are?" Brittany said as she extended her hand towards me.
I didn't know what to say, so I did the only logical thing I could think of. I stood there in shock for a minute, then I dashed down the hallway and out into the lobby.
I felt so broken. The girl I loved didn't remember me.
I could feel tears falling down my face as I walked towards the exit, of the building.
"Lou!" I heard Liam shout and then I felt his hand on my shoulder. "Why are you leaving?"
"She doesn't remember me. I don't want to be here."
"I know. Niall and Meghan told us everything, but her not remembering doesn't have to be a bad thing," he said as I wiped my tears from my eyes.
"What do you mean?"
"It's a clean slate for you two. You guys can get to know each other again. And more importantly, you're able to go in there and tell her that you two are dating and she will have no choice but to believe it."
"Should I do that?" I asked him and he chuckled.
"Do whatever you think is best," he responded and I thought about it for a minute before I headed back to Brittany's room.
"Hi," I said as I walked back into her room. "I'm Louis."
"Hi, am I supposed to know you?" she asked.
"Yeah, I'm one of your best friends," I said and I sat down on her bed and turned to face her, "And your boyfriend."
"Really?" she asked and I felt a bit guilty when I nodded. "Well, at least I have a really attractive boyfriend," she said and I laughed.
"Yes, well, I have a beautiful girlfriend," I told her and she blushed.
After a moment or two she asked a question that I hadn't really thought about.
"Are you her dad?" she asked as she placed a hand on her stomach.
I smiled as blushed slightly. "Yeah, I am."
She nodded and thought for a few minutes.
"Do you have a job?" she asked and I laughed.
"Yeah, it's a pretty exotic job."
"You're not a stripper are you?" she asked with wide eyes and I shook my head.
"No, um, actually I'm in a boy band called One Direction."
"Yeah, I'm in it with my four best friends."
"Who are they?"
"Niall, Harry, Zayn and Liam."
"Wait," she said and thought for a second. "Okay, so, my step brother who was just in her, someone I don't know, someone I don't know, and Meghan's boyfriend?"
"Exactly, but you know Zayn and Harry."
"Yeah, you're like their little sister. You're like family to all of us."
"That's cool," she said with chuckle. "I've always wanted to have a bigger family than I had."
"Well, you do know. And it's going to be getting bigger soon," I told her as I rested my hand on her stomach and she blushed. "I have something for you," I said as I pulled something out of my pocket and handed it to her.
"My dads dog tags," she said and immediately put them on and then rested her hand on them as they hung from her neck. "I knew I was missing something."
"The doctors would let you wear them for some reason, so I've been holding onto them for you."
"You seem to be an amazing boyfriend," she said with a smile.
"Well, you're an even better girlfriend," I told her.
"How did we meet?" she asked.
"I met you when the lads and I kidnapped you."
"What do you mean?"
"Well, before you ever met Niall, the lads and I went into your house in the early hours of the morning and blindfolded you and gagged you and duct taped you, then we took you to our house and we told you who we were."
"Yeah. You were really shocked to find out that Niall Horan was going to be your step brother."
"Why would I be shocked?" she asked, confused.
"Because the band that I'm in may or may not be the most popular band on the planet." She looked shocked.
"Yeah. One Direction seems to be very popular."
"You're shitting me."
"Not at all."
"Holy shit, that's awesome!"
"Yeah, I get to live my dream with my four best mates, and I happened to find a lovely lady in the process, and that lovely lady is you."
