Millie

I take a step outside the car as the harsh sun light causes me to squint slightly. I get out my suitcase and roll it to the side, taking a view of the airport as I scurry quickly along with suitcases and backpacks, It's big. For Georgia at least.

"Ready?" A husky voice emerges from beside me, sending slight shivers down my spine. I shouldn't be doing this.

I avert my eyes to him, grinning back."Ready" I chuckle before making our way inside. Thankfully no photographers or fans have found us yet, the sound of screaming and flashing cameras could send me to a frenzy.

"Hey I'm going to go get the rest of the bags from the limo, sit by the waiting area before we go into security" he says placing a kiss on my forehead. I grin cheerily as he walks off, leaving me on my own. Shouldn't I not be feeling something when he done that? Like butterflies?

I hurriedly drag my suitcase with me along to one of the screens on top, igniting my cautions. My eyes searching our plane arrival and the times. A sudden pounding feeling aches near my heart, that feeling being Finn. He hates me.

I shake my head as if it could rid the feelings. But deep deep inside, I know it won't.

"Millie!" I hear a voice scream from behind me, I turn around as my heart skips a beat to the sight of them. It's Noah and Finn. Sadie, Caleb and Gaten behind them, running towards me.

They came.

"Finn?" I gasp in disbelief as he finally reaches me, everyone else stopping mid way behind him. My throat suddenly feels stiff and dry, as I'm frozen to the spot.

He suddenly grabs my hand, gasping for air, as his eyes avert to mine, holding my gaze captive.

"You don't know how long we've spent looking for you" he chuckles in humour. My heart skips a beat in disbelief, they must have seen my tweet.

I raise an eyebrow,"What are you doing here Finn?" I scoff, Finns face suddenly falls as if he just remembered something really important.

"W- We're coming to get you. You can't go- not with him" he pants, leaving me speechless.

"Wh..why n-not?" I question suspiciously, this morning he said he wanted nothing to do with me. Now, he's trying to stop me from hopping onto a plane away from him.

"Because-" his voice suddenly gets cut off by the sound of the speaker com.

"All flights to Bahamas- boarding now" a British voice bellows causing me and Finn to look up, only making his grip around my wrist tighter.

"Because.." he sighs.

"Because? Because what Finn?" I furrow my eyebrows.

"Because" he pauses taking a step forward,"Because I love you" he exclaims gently. His soft gaze looks back at my shocked one as my face falls in realisation. My whole body suddenly goes into a frenzy.

W- what...

Him-

Finn..

I tread carefully on my next words, if he said this a year ago it it would different, but since this mornings conversation.. everything's changed.

"But- what you said back at the trailer-" I say suspiciously through raised eyebrows.

"Was not true" he finishes my sentence,"I thought by pushing you away, my feelings would go with you. But I can't" he sighs.

"From the moment we first met, I knew something was different about you. I couldn't put my finger on it until we first kissed- not on set. But the kiss in the changing rooms- when I had the panic attack" he continues.

"That's when it all changed, Millie" he sighs, shaking his head.

"Please, please just pick up the bags and come with me. I can't- I can't loose you. Not this time" He croaks out desperately.

I feel my heart physically ache. He loves me- all this time he's liked me back. Finn wolfhard, my bestfriend, my partner in crime, my crush. But he's hurt me. One too many times..

I take a step back, shaking my head."Finn it's too late" I sigh, inhaling sharply as I try desperately to hold back the tears.

His face falls,"No mills- it's not" He exclaims suddenly, his hands and voice start shaking.

Suddenly a presence from behind me startles me,"Ready Millie?" I hear Jacob whisper in my ear. I look over my shoulder with a plastered grin. Suddenly Finn takes a step closer before Noah and Caleb run up and push him back, almost as if they were holding him back from ripping Jacobs head off.

"Yeah, I'll just catch up with you" I say, he nods in reply before sneering at Finn and Caleb, walking towards security.

"Millie" Finn says startling me,"Don't do this" He says shaking his head, his eyes start to water.

"I have to Finn, you've hurt me too many times. This time, you have to let me go" I say, biting my lip to stop it from quivering.

I don't even know if this is the right thing to do anymore, all I know is I need to let him go. Even if it'll take me forever.

"I won't-" He says quietly as a tear strolles down his freckled cheeks,"I- I love you Millie" he sniffles.

"I know" I say as I feel tears roll down my cheeks, with one final glance I gently step back from Finns hold, before turning around and walking away.

I love you too
