I locked myself in the bathroom. I was crying my eyes out. You're such a bitch, Tori. Not only that, but you're a slut too, Niall's words echoed in my mind. "I'm not a slut. I'm not a bitch." I whimpered to myself, hugging my knees tightly. Trying to find that comfort somewhere that wasn't Niall's arms.
A soft knock on the door brought fresh tears down my cheeks. "Tori?" I stifled back a wail and choked, "The bathroom...is occupied." There was a pause. "C'mon let me in." It's Louis. I sniffled and wipe away my tears. But when I open the door, more fall. Louis sits on the floor next to me and shuts the door. I crash into his arms, crying like it was the end of the world.
Louis runs his fingers through my hair. "Tori..." he whispered. "Don't believe Niall. You aren't a bitch, and you certainly aren't a slut." I let out a small wail. "I-I don't know w-why he would say that to me. I di-didn't do anything to deserve t-that." I stammered, trying to stop the tears.
"I know, baby." He hugged me so tight, my tears melted away. I felt safe in his arms. I looked at Louis, slightly embarrassed I had gotten his striped sweat wet. "I'm sorry..." I say, wiping my eyes. Louis keeps me in his arms. "No worries. It's just water." I smile at him, then flinch as the major headache settles in.
"Tori, I want to protect you from anymore guy drama. I don't know if this is a bad time to ask, but would you maybe, consider being my girl?" I blush and stare at Louis. "I...Of course, Louis." I hug him and then he kisses me. It sends fireworks through my body. And the kiss I shared with Niall, is only a distant memory, locked in the back of my mind.
"Niall, you are such a jerk!" Harry said to me. I looked at him. "I know." I muttered. "Seriously, you made her cry." he continued. "Niall, if I didn't like you, I'd kill you." Nikki said, glaring at me. "You still like me even after what I said to Tori?" I asked, slightly flattered and surprised. "Of course dummy. You're Niall! Who couldn't like you?" I shifted my gaze. "Tori."
Liam placed his hand on my shoulder. "Honestly, why are you blowing up on her?" I looked at him. "I don't know! I just start feeling something and then I get super mad." Zayn glanced up from his book. "Niall, do you have anger issues?" Harry laughed, but then stopped as he realized it was a serious question.
"I...I don't know. I don't think so. But my mum never had me tested or anything." I say slowly. Liam exchanged a glance with Nikki. "Maybe we should get you tested." I sighed. "And what? Give the papparazzi something to kill my career over? Oh look here! Newsflash, Niall Horan of One Direction has anger issues! Hello! Are you guys completely bonkers?" I snap.
Liam looks at Zayn. "Yeah, he needs to be tested." Nikki stares at me. "I've never seen someone be able to mask their anger issues so well before." Suddenly, Louis comes out of the bathroom. He leads Tori out and stops in front of us. "I have an announcment." Louis starts, glaring at me.
"Tori and I now a couple." A bomb goes off in the back of my mind and I clench my fists. Zayn smiles. Harry slaps Louis on the back. "Alright, my lad!" I look at Nikki. "Yeah, well... Nikki and I have our date tonight." Everyone stops and looks at me. "Better be careful Nikki," Tori says bitterly. "He might rip your heart out and leave it on the ground in a million. Tiny. Little. Broken. Pieces." She walked by me, pulling Louis by his hand. I stood there, hurt locking in my heart. I sighed and closed my eyes. All hope for me and Tori was now officially gone.
