You help Louis pack the final items into his suitcase, trying to hold back the tears.
‘I’ll miss you so much baby, I truly will.’ He whispers, pulling you into his strong arms; you feel his warm breath on your neck.
He breaks away from you and turns to Harry;
‘Harry, man, you’ll look after her, you promise? If anything happens to her I swear-‘
‘Lou, I’ll look after her, chill man!’ he grins at the serious expression on his best friends face.
Louis walks back over to you, he cups your face in his hands and gazes into your eyes.
‘Now, baby, I need to go now,’ he whispers, tears forming in his eyes.
‘Just promise me you’ll be good and stay safe and-’ his voice breaks.
You look up at him, brushing the tears away from his eyes,
‘Lou, honey, you know that Harry will keep me safe, he does every time you go away! Listen, I love you very much, just promise me that you will behave yourself or else i’ll-‘
He laughs and interrupts you with a warm, lingering kiss. You smile as he pulls you against his chest; you can feel his steady heartbeat. He whispers comforting words into your hair and releases you from his embrace.
‘Harry,’ he shouts
‘Yeah yeah I’ll look after her! I get it! Now go!’ Harry punches Louis playfully before pushing him out the door.
You watch sadly as Louis closes the door behind him. You hear the engine start and Harry turns to you.
‘Erm, you ok?’ he asks. You can’t help but smile at his awkwardness.
‘I’m okay, yeah’ you whisper.
You grab his arm and lead him to the living room;
‘Come on, lets play some video games.’
Hours pass, you can’t concentrate on anything. You need to hear your boyfriends voice; you need to know that he’s ok.
‘Harry, he should have called by now, what if somethings happened?’ you whisper, the volume in your voice rising.
‘Babe, i’m sure he’s fine, you panic like this every time, he’s always safe, isn’t he?’
You relax slightly, but you still have that feeling, deep in your heart, that something is wrong.
Finally the phones rings, your heart leaps, Harry grins as you run to answer.
It’s Louis, but something is wrong.
You can’t hear him clearly, you hear screaming, crying.
‘Louis! Louis! Where are you! Whats happening?’ you scream, tears streaming down your face.
You vaguely notice Harry running into the room, he rests his head against yours, listening.
‘Babe! Babe! Can you hear me?’ Its Louis. He’s crying.
‘Louis! Louis! Whats happening! Talk to me!’ you scream, you’re shaking uncontrollably.
‘Baby! Listen to me! Its the plane! It’s going down, we’re above the ocean, I think’ Louis shouts, the panic in his voice becoming clear.
‘Now, listen to me, you have to keep going, don’t give up, ever, for me’ he shouts
‘But Louis I-’ You scream.
‘No buts! Do this for me, you have to try, do it for me! Promise!’ He shouts
‘But Louis-’ you scream
‘Promise!’ he shouts
‘I promise.’ you whisper
‘Good, now, Tell Harry that he may have to look after you for longer than he expected. Baby, I love you, I always have, I always will. I just want you to know that-’ you hear a scream. The phones goes dead.
‘I love you too.’ you whisper.
