“What are you telling people about us?”
“Are you trying to make me jealous or are you just so frustrated that you’re already looking for someone else?”
“I am NOT looking for anyone else!”
“I feel awful.”
“You’re scaring me. Here, sit, please. Do you need something?”
“I need to tell you what’s going on, so that you and I don’t accidentally kill each other over a dumb misunderstanding, and I need you to promise me that if I tell you, you’re not going to beat anyone up.”
“I don’t think I like this deal.”
“Right. You are so smart.”
“I’m such an idiot.”
“You’re a jealous idiot, and that has to change right now.”
“You have no reason to be jealous. I told you that I don’t want anyone but you. I never have.”
“And you have no idea how… Attractive isn’t the right word. It doesn’t describe the effect you have on men. On me.”
“Look, I’m not a jealous person, really.”
“Are you on fire?!”
“So much for letting it blow over.”
“Doesn’t matter? This is my life you’re talking about.”
“I’d never ask you to do something that I wouldn’t do myself.”
“We’re in this together.”
“You’re telling me to give up all my plans like it’s the easiest thing in the world!”
“I just didn’t want to be that girl, you know? The girl who does whatever her boyfriend tells her to do because she wants someone else to make all the tough decisions for her.”
“I just realized, we’ve been fighting all day.”
“I know it freaks you out, but as harsh as it sounds, you’ve just got to get over it.”
“This is who you are, and I’m not afraid of you. So you shouldn’t be, either.”
“I didn’t know. I guess I should start paying better attention to that.”
“You have to pay attention to everything that makes you more powerful.”
“Who wouldn’t want fifty French fries? Delicious.”
“Did I just freak everyone out?”
“There’s nothing wrong with what you can do. There’s nothing wrong with you.”
“I need to go home right now.”
“I’ll give it right back. I promise.”
“I’m sorry. But it was the only way to prove it.”
“That will never work on me.”
“Promise me that you will speak to me again. Even if it’s just once.”
“You don’t understand what’s happening, do you?”
“You’re still a virgin, right?”
“If you don’t think it’s possible for someone to be driven mad by love, it’s only because you haven’t truly felt it yet.”
“But we’re not allowed to have a relationship, are we?”
“How’d you sleep?”
“It’s not your fault.”
“We should take the day off and go shopping, then maybe go out for dinner!”
“I just woke up and I’m already exhausted.”
“I know it, and I hate it, but I just can’t seem to stop.”
“I think you need to cry, even just once. Maybe then you could let it out and feel a little better.”
“Are we done here?”
“What are you doing here?”
“Why didn’t you tell me?”
“Why couldn’t you at least explain to me why we couldn’t be together?”
“Why didn’t you answer the phone one of the thousand times I’ve called you this past week?”
“Stop it! Stop asking me questions when you’re the one with all the answers!”
“I can’t lose you.”
“I thought if you know how bad it was you’d send me away.”
“I didn’t want you to give up hope.”
“I can’t do this if you give up on us.”
“I’m not talking about running off and doing whatever we want!”
“I don’t care how hard being together is, nothing is worse than being apart.”
“It’s almost as if we don’t need to live our lives or feel our feelings at all, because someone already told us what the ending was going to be.”
“Are you really willing to do this?”
“I think I know where you’re going with this, and I don’t think I want to hear you say it.”
“What if I wasn’t a virgin?”
“Would you stop wanting me if I was with someone else first?”
“I don’t just want you. I love you. Big difference.”
“You’re not the only one making this decision, you know.”
“Is that all you want from me? Sex?”
“I just told you I loved you!”
“Most of all, I want us to be together.”
“Then what’s the plan?”
“We can’t be together and we definitely can’t be apart.”
“We stick together and play by the rules until we can rewrite them.”
“We’re going to find a way to make this work. I promise.”
“I think a little cold air will do us good.”
“Sure. Because that’s exactly what you and I need – a more romantic setting.”
“You actually thought I didn’t know, didn’t you?”
“I guess we’re stuck here for a while.”
“Where the hell do you think you’re going?”
“You want to tell me why you knocked me out and tied me up?”
registered the days passing. They blurred into each other, unable to
distinguish the day from the night as I slumped in the plastic chairs in the
waiting room. I would have realised they were uncomfortable if I felt anything
but numbness, apart from the feeling of some kind of void.
the boys was there at all times, but they kept swapping to go home and shower
and sleep. They forced me a few times, but it never consisted of more than a
change of clothes and a shower.
breathed and hated the hospital.
looked tired, no matter how much they tried to sleep I knew not much was coming
to them. Michael in particular had deep purple circles as he had taken the
extra guilty role of seeing the alley in the first place, no matter what Calum
and Ashton said to him. I said nothing. I didn’t speak the whole time, I just
weakly protested in the form of trying to push them off me as they pulled me
from the chair.
may have looked bad, but there was probably nothing worse than the sight of me.
I knew my
hair was constantly messy and had thick tracks where I had racked my hands
through it, my eyes tired and half closed, face pale and gaunt. Sickly looking.
Maybe I looked just as dead as she was.
like hours, the seconds in between her feeble gasp of breath and the ambulance
arriving. Ashton had sobbed but I just couldn’t stop the choking noise coming
out of my tight throat. Her limp body in my arms, her head lolling to the side
into me as she paled.
was shakily brushing the hair out of her eyes as if she would wake back up and
it would annoy her, my eyes flicking to Ashton as he rocked back, low growls
ripping out of his throat.
Michael rounded back around the corner, the other bodyguards in tow as they all
skidded to a halt, the boys immediately faltering to their knees as they
watched us in despair.
I had to
change positions in the waiting room every few hours to avoid injuring myself.
My long legs were out of place, awkwardly shoved in a chair as my hands rubbed
over my face. The boys came to join me, slotting in the remaining seats as
Calum handed me a coffee.
him an empty smile as I took it, gulping it quickly and not registering the
heat as it slipped down my throat.
Hemmings?” A woman called, not even looking up from her clipboard until I
yelped, scrambling up and tripping over the table as I landed at her feet. The
boys followed me, hauling me up as I stuttered.

for her to say ‘asleep’ as I scanned every number passing.
froze; hand on the doorknob as the boys caught up to me, watching me nervously.
I hesitated slightly as Michael gave me a soft nudge, pushing to open it as I
held my breath.
still pale, but still beautiful, and my heart pounded at the sound of a steady
beep meaning she was still very much alive. The boys grinned at each other as
we walked quietly, arranging ourselves around the bed. I sat at her immediately
right, elbows on knees as I chewed my lip, watching her. Her hair was sprawled
around her as her chest rose and fell softly. I scanned her body, noticing her
hand at her side as I gently picked it up, jumping at the coldness of it as I
intertwined our fingers.
it to my lips, briefly kissing it as I started to slowly rub it, the boys
smiling as I finally settled down comfortably for the first time in days.
was thinking, wondering actually, if we could maybe see about delaying the tour
for a little while?” I coughed as the boys all smiled softly at each other.
ahead of you mate.” Calum grinned.
already talked to Paul. He’s talking to the date guys.” Ashton rubbed the
bridge of his nose as I sighed in relief.
don’t know if I’m ready for another bodyguard, it’s just best that we delay
better not be talking about the tour.” A groan caused us all to look down in
shock, a slight squeeze in my hand making a surprised laugh escape my lips. Y/N
scrunched her nose up, blinking at the dimmed lights of the room.
Michael yelped, all three of them standing back up to crowd around the bed. She
beamed up at us as I rapidly tried to blink away my tears.
to me right now. Do. Not. Delay. This. Tour. I will kill you, and then this
whole thing will be pointless.” She giggled slightly as I bit my lip again,
swallowing hard. Her eyes scanned us, settling on my face last as she fell
quiet, and a crooked smile met her lips.
give you guys some time. Coffee anyone?” Michael pushed Ashton and Calum out of
the room, winking at me as I sat gently on the side of the bed. We sat in
silence for a few minutes, until I finally found the courage to meet her eyes,
words falling out of my mouth.
sorry I didn’t do more.” Her brows knitted together as she tried to interrupt,
my choke stopping her. “I could have done more. You almost died.”
die.” She said softly as I dropped her hand and went to the chair next to her
it, Y/N, you almost died. Because of
us. Because of me.” Tears finally broke free of my eyes as she fought to grab
my chin, pushing my gaze back up to her.
didn’t follow job procedure. I didn’t survey the situation. Because they didn’t
follow job procedure. Because they left me with you all. Because dark alleys
are the shittest idea ever in daytime, never mind night. Because I wasn’t going
to let him hurt you.” Her fingers clasped mine.
didn’t follow procedure, but I wanted to still do my job, protecting you. Because
you can tell me that I saved you, so it was your fault? No. I chose to save
you, and I’m never going to regret that. Because if he had hurt you, because
you did something brave and something that saved me, something that I taught
you, I would never forgive myself. So it was really, a selfish act for me.”
Tears ran down her face too, my thumb going to gently wipe them away.
“I don’t care
what you say, Y/N. If I can delay this tour, I will. Because I can’t have
another bodyguard. I won’t.”
stubborn, I see. But I’d want me too. We’re a pretty badass pair, Luke.” A
laugh finally rose in my chest, a smile really crossing my face as I scooted
the chair closer to her.
mom is in love with you.” She laughed, her eyes crinkling as I played with her fingers.
Like she didn’t like you enough. Though to be honest, you’re popular with
everyone at the moment. Parents, friends, fans. They all want to know the girl
who saved the four idiots chasing cats in dark alleyways.”
great though. Speaking of cats…” She trailed off, biting her lip. “Mikey blames
himself, doesn’t he?” I nodded slightly as she sighed. “I thought so. He almost
looks as bad as you, which, by the way, I don’t understand. Why do you look so
shit? I didn’t go through all this just so both of us could look terrible.” Her
jokes warmed me, finally pushing out the cold that had settled in my bones.
worried about you.” She rolled her eyes.
you worry about any of the other bodyguards like this? You’ve really freaked
yourself out, Lu.” My mind raced as I looked around the room hurriedly.
It’s not fair, to tell her. You
know that. That’s going to jeopardise her job if you tell her. Not to mention
the fact that she won’t feel the same. It’ll make everything awkward, and you’ll
loose the best thing that ever happened to you, whether it was only a
friendship or more.
fair.” I muttered to myself as she frowned.
fair, Lu? Any reason you’ve been silent for a while?” I broke free of my
thoughts as I shook my head, realising that I had said it aloud. She pouted as
she poked my arm.
know, you shouldn’t have been scared because you didn’t think you could save
me.” My eyebrows shot up as I remembered what I had gasped to her as I thought she
remember that?” She nodded, smiling softly.
course I do. You were so brave, I’m really proud of you.” My cheeks flushed at
brave as you. You weren’t scared at all.”
“I was. I
wasn’t scared for me, though. I was scared for you guys.” She squeezed her eyes
shut as she yawned, her hand covering her mouth.
gave her a confused stare as she laughed a little.
people would really, really care if you were gone. I don’t just mean fans or anything;
I mean your families are spectacular. I’ve never seen so much love. It would
really hurt them.” I stood up abruptly, going back for the bed seat as our
faces were close together.
think people would be hurt if you were gone? Maybe you don’t have a fan base,
and your family are idiots, but you have four guys who would care a damn lot.
It doesn’t how many people you have, its who. To the world you might be one
person but to one person you might be the world.” I rambled on as I sighed,
breaking my speech to meet her eyes solidly. Here goes nothing.

CHAPTER UPDATE! I’m sorry for the delay in chapter updates, I’ve been quite busy with college but I hope to find more time for writing in the next week. This chapter is a long one, which I hope you all enjoy! I certainly had fun writing it! As always, feedback is welcomed and does encourage me to update faster! (also, I know I stated in previous chapter that Claire lived in apartment, I’ve decided to change it to a house. I have plans for the future and you’ll understand once you’ve read this chapter, hopefully!)
As Claire takes Jamie back to her home, they have time to learn more about one another, with Jamie learning even more about the century he’s in and together they try to put together a plan to get Jamie back to his own time. However, the longer Claire spends around the mysterious Scotsman, the more she feels their connection deepening, and the struggle to remain faithful to her own husband who’s currently off at war, grows even harder still.
