The next day….
Yesterday was definitely one hell of an emotional ride but I was glad that the outcome was what I was hoping for. Although I was hurting myself, knowing that I could keep Zayn and the rest of the boys together was all that I needed to soften the pain. But it still did not beat the fact that I was dreading to go home and leaving everything and everyone behind. My feelings were so conflicted; I felt happy yet sad at the same time. I created a new life here, but my real one was waiting for me merely days away and I’d be off on a plane away from the one I truly loved.
I opened up the door setting off a cute little ring from the bell that was placed on top of the door of the cafe and walked in trying to spot Emily at a table, most probably sipping on a cup of coffee.
“Holly!” I heard a voice shout behind me,
I swiftly turned around and saw a gleaming Emily, her hands well wrapped around what exactly I guessed; a cup of coffee. I squealed on the spot, jumping a little and skipped my way to her table then shot myself at her with a hug.
“I’ve missed you!” she said squeezing me with her arms,
“I’ve missed you too!!” I replied as I broke off from our hold and sat down at the table,
“Well,” she snorted, “if you weren’t so busy living the high life with your famous boyfr—”
I cut her off laughing out loud, “No! Shut up, I know! But you and I both know you’re taking full advantage of it so you can be with Carmello!”
Her face went blank.
I smugged, “Yeah that’s what I thought!”
“I’m going to just pretend this conversation did not happen,” she began shuffling in her seat, “and yeah so the weather is quite nice today!”
I turned to the glass window to only see rain pouring hard outside and turned my head back to her with a raised eyebrow. I opened my mouth to make a smart ass comment but was quickly stopped as she was fast to change topic.
“So…. HEY!” she exclaimed slightly slamming the table with her hands, “My big news I have to tell you! Well.. old news now since you blew me off on the phone yesterday.”
I rolled my eyes and began laughing again, “I’m sorry! I’m sorry! I have a legit good reason trust me!”
She squinted her eyes with a doubtful expression across her face and rested her chin on top of her left hand, eyeing me.
“Oh my God,” I shoved her a little, “I’m serious! Come on then! Tell me the news, don’t leave me dying more than I already am. What is it?!”
She smirked and lifted her head off her left hand and swayed it in the air, “Oh, nothing serious..” she flared flicking her hand still smirking,
I frowned as I watched her look like a complete retard as she sat there moving her left hand constantly, smirking like the biggest idiot, leaving me absolutely confused out of my mind.
“Are you okay?” I asked seriously folding my arms, “Have I really been away from you this long that you’ve forgotten how to control your body?” I froze as my dirty mind kicked in, “Well shit that sounded wrong didn’t it.”
“Ugh!” she grunted, “I forgot how slow you are!!”
This time she extended her left arm out, her fingers now in front of my face. And that’s when I saw the news. My eyes widened wider than an owl, and my heart quite literally felt like it jumped out of my chest as I jumped out of my chair, hands covering my mouth.
“Oh my God. Oh my God. OH MY GOD. NO WAY EM! NO WAY! OH MY GOD!” I shrieked,
The engagement ring sparkled so bright in the light of the cafe on her ring finger as her smile was up to her ears. They were finally getting hitched. Emily and Carmello after years of practically being a married couple, were making it real with a ring and a piece of paper.
I threw myself at her, sobbing on her shoulder, completely ecstatic that this moment was finally happening.
“I can’t believe it either! He proposed yesterday! It was beautiful, like everything I imagined but better! BETTER, HOLLY BETTER!” she pulled me back with her hands on my shoulders still with a smile so wide and eyes appearing to tear up, “I’M JUST SO HAPPY!”
I squealed like a little girl and hugged her tight again as we squealed together this time in the middle of the cafe too engrossed with the overwhelming feeling of happiness we were sharing together.
“Oh my God! So what’s the plan? What’s happening? Tell me everything?!” I asked not bothering to calm myself down as I sat back down in my seat,
“We’re leaving tomorrow!” she announced clapping her hands excitedly,
“Really?!?! That’s awesome!” I smiled then paused, “Wait! What? Tomorrow?? Tomorrow where?”
“We have to go back home, Carmello’s missing it already and he’s too excited to wait another 3 days to tell his family in person!”
“Oh,” I said softly, bowing my head down,
It suddenly hit me that not only was I leaving in a short 3 days, but I was now leaving on a plane by myself. How was I going to deal with a ridiculous amount of hours on a plane, holding the depression inside of me that I was leaving Zayn, with just me, myself and I?
I quickly forced myself to pretend these thoughts did not hit me to let Emily have her moment and put on my best smile.
“That’s great! I’m sure you’re family will be just as happy as I am for you!” I beamed,
She reflected my smile and grabbed my hands, “I’m so excited Holly, we’re finally doing it!!”
Emily jumped in her seat a little as her phone went off, “Hold that thought!” she said then answering her phone,
“Hey baby! … Yeah just with Holly! … Oh .. really? .. Already? .. Okay! .. Be there soon! .. Love you!”
I stared at her knowing I’d be disappointed with what she had to say next.
“I’m sorry Holly..” she sighed, “Carmello needs me back at the hotel!”
I pursed my lips together and nodded, “Yeah that’s fine!”
“But I’ll see you when you get back to the hotel too if you’re not staying with Zayn tonight. If you are, our flight is at 11AM!”
“Oh okay! Yeah I’ll definitely come to the airport!”
“Okay sounds good!” she smiled grabbing her bag and standing up to leave, “I’ll see you later okay?”
“Yes of course! Bye!”
She walked on over and gave me a quick peck on the cheek and waved goodbye as she whisked off out the door.
I sighed as I sat there by myself in the cafe, eyes pondering around not sure what there was to do with myself. Zayn was out with the boys for the day and Eleanor and Danielle were at work. I guessed there was only really one option left that was the next best thing in my eyes left to do; sleep. I unzipped my bag and took my phone off the table to place it inside when suddenly I had received a message.
Hey :) so I know things have been a bit .. hectic between us but.. I’d really like it if you could join me for lunch tomorrow just to talk? It’s ok if you don’t want to though, I completely understand! Well let me know.. x
I frowned curiously at the text of the unknown number and began to type my reply.
Hello! So sorry but who’s this? I don’t have your number!
Only a few odd seconds later I had received a reply.
Oh sorry! I forgot, Niall gave me your number, it’s Josh! :) so how bout it? Lunch? x
I froze for a bit blankly staring at my screen, wondering what even brought on this text and whether or not it was a good idea to meet up. After a few minutes of deep thought I decided on my reply.
12PM @ Nandos in Soho! See you then! :)
