Tell Me A Lie.

19. Knocks A New Start.

Natalie’s POV

The blinding sunlight was clearly stealing my sleep away. But that wasn't the only reason why I woke up. I could hear Louis’ voice, shouting endlessly on his phone. I cracked my eyes open. He was sitting up beside me on the bed, shirtless and completely frustrated.

“Ok Andrew. Here’s the deal mate. Either you buy me more time here, or you guys can go ahead and tour without me.”

Shit!! It was their tour manager!

I quickly snatched the phone from Louis’ hand, and said, “Hello Andrew. I’m Natalie. I just wanted to say that don’t listen to Louis. He’s just a little messed up right now.  He’ll be there tomorrow for the flight. I promise.” I sighed.

“Yeah. Okay.” The line went dead.

I turned to Louis, angry as hell. “WHAT ARE YOU? Retarded or what??”

He didn’t see me eye to eye. “Natalie, you were talking in your sleep.”

Since I wasn’t wearing anything, I pulled the sheets closer to my body and moved towards Louis. I held his hand and asked, “What, was it so bad?”

“Nat, you were talking and crying in your sleep. You were begging me not to leave you alone.”

Right. Now I was the retarded one.

Louis went on. “You know, right for that moment, you looked so small and so vulnerable. I felt as if the world could so easily crush you down.”

“Lou, not again. I’m telling you this for the last time. You” I pushed my index finger into his bare chest, “need to go on tour with your best friends and live your dream. While I” I took his index fingers and pointed them towards me, “ need to get myself out of high school and choose a career.”

Louis nodded. “Alright.” Louis sqeezed my hand to add, “And about your career…”

I narrowed my eyes out of curiosity, “What about it?”

“Yesterday, at the party, we had a couple of people from our label. After you sang your song, they just came all hounding upon me, asking if they could sign you in. They wanted to know if you’re interested. Are you?”

I couldn’t believe it!

“Interested? Lou, I’m completely blown away! It’s amazing.”

You are amazing.” He drew me into a hug, something I needed the most right now.

I was going to whisper a ‘thank you’ but a sound truly cosmic in nature blew right into the room. The door of the room burst open with four world-known lads, all in pajamas, singing –

“When you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.”

*clap* *clap*

“When you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.”

*clap* *clap*

“When you’re … SHIT!”

Louis jumped in front of me to cover me, because apparently, his girlfriend was NAKED.

Yes, I only had the bed sheets to covering my body.

 Louis screamed, “Guys!! Knock much? Now turn.”

All the guys turned around, facing the wall. Harry spoke up, his head facing the wall “What? We just wanted to congratulate you guys in the lads’ way.”

Niall turned his head and exclaimed, “Yeah. Congratulations, both of you.”

 I was about to say ‘thank you’, but Louis came up in front of me to cover me from Niall’s gaze. One look into Louis’ stern eyes, and Niall head went sweeping back towards the wall.

Liam was next. “We wouldn’t have come if we knew you guys were having sex.”

All of them laughed. Liam and Zayn high-fived. I laughed. Louis hardened.

Louis said. “A very good morning to you guys too. Now,” he pulled the sheets, poured them out on me and went out of bed to hold the door open, “you guys need to leave.”

Before leaving, the guys came over towards me to congratulate me. I could feel Louis’ anger boiling up but I didn’t want to seem mean or something, so I hugged them without letting go of the bed sheets.

Harry said, “Congratulations Natalie! Have a great time.”  He gave me a quick hug and whispered, “Great song by the way. It was really sweet.”

I smiled. “Thanks a lot.”

Zayn said with a smirk, “Congrats!! You’ve got yourself a fine man, young lady.” We shared a warm hug and I replied, “I know. Thank you.”

Liam gave me a bear hug and said, “Congratulations! I’m so happy for you two. Oh and Danielle says congrats too, and she forgives you for crashing her party.”

I apologized. “Yeah, I’m pretty sorry about that. Thanks anyway.”

 Last was Niall. “Well well, look whose here. Oh Louis, would you forgive me, if I said I’m friggin sorry …” He sang my song and did this weird traditional Irish dance that sent me laughing away. He sat down to give me a giant bear hug and said, “Oh, you need to know what happened last night. There was this really-”

Louis caught hold of Niall’s shoulder and said “Mate, she’s a little under dressed for a chat right now. Breakfast table, I promise.” Louis assured him.

Niall mumbled ‘okay’ and went out of the room, waving a goodbye. I waved back.

I turned to Louis. “That was rude.”

He widened his eyes. “What else was I supposed to do? Jesus, you were naked.”

I laughed.

“Now” he sat down on one knee in front of me. He dug inside his right side pocket of his pants, and took out this really really cute black velvet box. I was stoned, but I smiled anyway. He held out the box.

“Natalie Peterson,” he paused and I held my breath, “would you do the honors to make me the happiest and the most luckiest person alive?” He opened the box, and inside it rested the most beautiful diamond ring I had ever laid my eyes on.  

I knew he was expecting an answer but I was completely blown away to reply. I just stared at the ring, then stared at Louis and back at the ring again.

What should I say? I mean, I haven’t really heard about high school kids who wear engagement rings to school. So yeah… I guess that would make me the first.

Louis, tracing no reply from me, shut the box and started to stand up. “I’m sorry. I don’t know what I was expecting.This is so stupid.  I just-”

What are you doing Nat? You want this!!

I spoke up, for the first time.“No.” I grabbed his hand. “Louis, I love you so much. And this is perfect. It’s  just… I don’t know what to say.” Curiousity killed the cat. “Why all of a sudden?”

Louis shrugged. “I wanted to book you off before anyone else laid their eyes on you, while I was gone.”

I laughed.

Louis asked.“So is that a yes or a no?”

“You are so dumb.” I pulled him closer for a kiss. “Yes! Of course yes!”

His smile was the brightest and the biggest I had ever seen. He quickly took out the ring and pushed it into my ring finger. It fit perfectly. I started to cry out of happiness. It was all like a dream.

I stood up to give him a hug. The sheets covering my body quickly feel down, but Louis caught them just in time and for a long long moment, we just stood there; hugging each other like we had never known how an embrace felt like.

 “See it’s always good to be a peeping Tom.” Niall caught us by surprise. Quickly the guys filed in and started singing and dancing. This time, Louis could barely say a word. Together, we both watched the boys sing and dance for us. I just looked down at the ring and smiled.

How I wish it could all last forever…
