Those six weeks without Louis were the longest of Eleanor's life.
Each passing day was another tick on the calendar in the countdown to seeing Louis again.
She kept herself busy, university coursework helped as a much needed distraction leaving no room in her brain to miss him too much.
Her friends helped a lot, the girls night outs in Manchester helped to keep the loneliness away.
As said he had phoned and texted her every single day in the six weeks leading up to the end of the tour.
She loved the sound of his voice on the phone but ached to hold him, kiss him.
From what he had told her, he missed her as much as she missed him which was reassuring.
She kept up with it all, watching every interview and buying every and any magazine which had One Direction in it.
He sent her bits and pieces from the various countries he travelled, they were all on display in her flat.
After the tour was over they would finally be able to spend time together, Eleanor looked forward to every minute they could have together.
