Remembering the Past

Twenty year old Scarlet Mason is a girl who tried forgetting everything when she thought the famous Louis Tomlinson was ruining her life. When she tried forgetting, so did he. She moved to Oregon and Louis continued with his band. When he ends up touring from West to East, will they run into each other again?


8. Goodbye and Hello

 When I was finally all caught up with the boys, we decided to watch a movie. Liam voted Toy Story and I just laughed. Honestly, I love movies like that, but I'm to shy to say anything. 

     I got up to go use the restroom because the boys were all standing up arguing about what movie to watch. Two minutes later I walk out and they have all sat down and The Lion King is playing. Zayn is sitting in the chair on the left, Harry in the chair on the right and the only space left is between Louis and Liam. 

     "Where's Niall?" I ask, and only Liam looks at me. 

     "He was tired so he went back to his room," Liam replied. Louis noticed our little conversation and looked at me. 

     "Can I talk to you for a minute?" he asks me. I'm glad all the lights have been turned off because I could feel the heat rushing to my cheeks. I give him a small nod, hoping he sees and walk out into the hall. He comes out right behind me. 

     "Look at me," he says sternly. 

     "I can't," I respond.

     "And why is that?" he asks sounding slightly irritated.

     "Because....." my voice trails off because I don't know how to explain it. Is it rude to just tell someone you don't love them anymore? Tell them that you'll feel guilty if you look into their eyes again. Should I just leave, and forget it all again. Maybe I- no. No, I won't do that to myself again.

     He roughly puts a hand on my shoulder and spins me around, slamming his lips onto mine. I pull away quickly and he doesn't even look confused. Like he didn't even notice. 

     "What do you feel?" I ask. 

     "What?" He's playing stupid, I can tell by his voice. 

     "Stop being stupid, Louis."

     "Nothing. I feel nothing. I think we thought we were each others drugs but that's not how it is. I think something attached to each of us is the drug we really need, but we were too afraid to overdose."

     I think I know exactly what I need that was close to Louis. "Wow. I think you're right. But what about before? I can't forget that feeling we had before.We each took over a year of our lives forgetting and remembering each other. Why was I trying to remember you if that's not what either of us wants?"

     "That was before. This is now. You were only trying to remember me for what you needed that was attached to me, or around me." Maybe he always was smart, he just never really showed that side of him. But I like this side. "Besides, I can't take you from my best mate."

     "Huh?" I ask, completely dumbfounded. 

     "Have you not- you know what, forget it. He'll tell you when he's ready. For now we can share a room but when we move from where we are -Salem- to Ontario, we wont be sharing a room anymore."

     "Why not?" I question.

     "You'll see, goodbye Scar."


     "That was boyfriend Louis talking. Best friend Louis says hello." I laugh at his craziness and head back into the room. Louis headed to his/my room to go to bed.

     When I head back to the room, no one has changed positions and when I look at the television Simba is just about to witness the stampede. I sit on the far end of the couch and when I get completely comfortable I hear a small sniffle. So small I'm not even sure I heard it. So I ignore it. 

     A few seconds later I hear a small sniffle again. I look at Harry and he's fast asleep and Zayn is on the verge of sleep. When my eyes land on Liam, it's so adorable, yet sad. He's sitting on the couch with his feet on the floor and a blanket draped over his long legs. His elbow is on the arm of the couch and his hand is resting on his face and there is a single tear streaming down his face.

    I pretend like I didn't see anything and I look at the TV. Simba can't get his dad to wake up. Like I couldn't get my grandpa to wake up. Mufasa is gone. My grandpa is gone. The innocent are the only ones hurt in these situations. 

    Maybe a simple Disney movie can change my perspective on life. Life is short, live the best you can. Sometimes, the world helps you up just so others can push you around. Sometimes, the world pushes you down when it knows you have no one to help you back up and you have to survive on your own. Other times, the world pushes you in such a deep hole and it sends one person to save you because you can't get yourself out. Maybe Liam is that person.

     I thought the world was giving me Louis to pull me out of my hole, but now I think- no. Now I know, that's wrong. Louis is just one of the many people the world has given me that will help greet me as the person pulls me out of my hole.

     I'm determined this person is Liam.
