I Can Love You More Than This - Part 10

Liz is nowhere to be found and after Abbey goes looking for her, she finds out the truth about her best friend.
I laid in bed trying to figure out what it all meant. The dream was crazy. Why couldn't I reach Liam? Why did Niall cheat on me? Why did Louis not want me to talk to Zayn? Why did Liz and Harry just poof into thin air? And most of all what was Louis protecting me of?

All of it was confusing, but I figured it was just a dream. I got up to use the bathroom at about 2:00 AM and peeked into Liz's room. Her bed was empty. My heart skipped a beat.

"Liz? Liz?! LIZ!" I searched through the apartment trying to find her, yet I knew darn well she wasn't here. I quickly got out my phone to text her.

Me: Lizzy where in the heck are you?

No response.

Me: Common this isn't funny.

Once again, no response. I drew on my sweatpants and raincoat. It was raining cats and dogs outside, but I still managed to make it to my nice, dry, car.

It roared to life and I backed out of the parking lot. I raced to One Direction's "hide out" which was really a huge house in the middle of the city. I got out of the small car, and banged on the door. I was completely soaked before someone answered it.

Louis opened it and I flew into his arms. "Please tell me Lizzy is here." He gave me a strange look and scratched his chin.

"Mmm, I don't think so." Lou was still half asleep, so I had to do what I had to do. I slapped him across the face to wake him up. His eyes got wide and he rubbed his cheek to make it feel better.

"I'm sorry I had to do that, but I really need you to focus." I took a deep breath and Lou went to check all the boys' room, while I dried off. He came down with a sad look. I stood up and walked over to him.

"Well, er, um there seems to be a problem. Harry is not in his bed." He shook his head while he saw my eyes get big. I was so mad and worried. Harry is Harry and well Harry is a little bit of a flirt. What could they be doing?

We searched the house for them, but they weren't anywhere to be found. Then I heard a yelp from the backyard. No, they couldn't be out there... could they? I ran outside, but didn't see anyone. I started walking back inside, when I heard it again.

Then I saw IT. The storm shelter of course! It was an old one that opens on the ground. I opened it, when I saw Liz and Harry. She was in a sports bra and underwear, while Hazza was just in boxer briefs. They were cuddling together, with a blanket slightly on top of them.

"Promise you won't tell? We can't let anyone know." Liz said to Harry. He stroked her hair and whispered, "I promise."

I shut the doors carefully, not letting them know I was there. I sat in the rain realizing what they were doing. They are screw-buddies. My best friend and my boyfriend's bandmate are fuck buddies.

I sighed, but slowly made my way inside. The only person I told what I saw was Lou. I trusted him, like he was a big brother to me. He reacted like I reacted, of course. I made my way to the car, after saying goodbye.

Once again, I was hurt. Liz could have at least told me, instead of sneaking around. Tears stripped my eyes, so it was hard to see.

The last thing I saw was a bright light.
How was this Chapter?
Love it.
Like it.
It's okay.
I don't care.
More or less.
Erm, not to good.
Hate it.
