Chapter 25

61 2 0

Everyone's gone, Mia and Niall have decided to go out together, Jordan's in work.

I don't know what he works as, or what it is that he does, all I know is that he's in work again apparently, since Mia told me this morning.

And as for Harry.

Well, I don't know what he's doing today.

I've decided to stay in today and have a little film day on my own since everyone else is out.

I'm now watching The Hunger Games catching fire and its up to the bit where they go back to all the districts.

Suddenly, a knock goes at the door.

It's probably Mia, i think to myself.

I quickly walk over to the door and open it.

Not finding Mia standing there but him.

"Hi babe" he smirks.

What the fuck.

Why does he have to show up everywhere I am?!

Stupid Nate.

I roll my eyes, waiting for him to carry on, clearly not amused by his return to my life.

"Uh.. can I come in?" He asks and scratches the back of his neck.

"What for?" I snap.

He looks taken aback by my sudden outburst but quickly recovers "we need to talk" he mumbles almost mutely.

He's got that right.

But I don't want to talk to that asshole.

"Fine" I roll my eyes and step back from the door as he walks in and sits on the couch nonchalantly.

"Kate" he speaks after a few minutes of awkward silence.

"Nate" I mock.

"You look pretty" he states, gesturing to my lounge look.

Black sweatpants and a black Rolling Stones shirt.

I roll my eyes at his comment.

"Liar" I reply almost mutely.

"I'm not lying" he laughs "but who am I to kid? You always look pretty" he mumbles the end part.

It goes silent again for a few minutes, neither of us saying a word on the couch.

Throughout the whole flat, the only sound is the telly, I decide to focus back on the film I was watching.

Although Nate decides to speak up.

"I love you" he mumbles.

I choose to ignore him.

"Kate" he speaks a little louder.

Me not taking any notice and still focusing on the Telly.

"Kate" he repeats a little more stern.

I still ignore him.

He climbs off the couch and crawls on his knees, placing a hand on my knee and looking up at me "Kate baby" he whispers.

"What" I roll my eyes.

"I love you" he repeats, looking me in the eyes.

Why do I feel the urge to kiss him? I mean I hate him.

I know I used to love him, but I mean I really hate him now.

But do I really? I don't know.

"Kate, say something" he speaks more intensely.

"You don't love me" I speak.

"It was always you Kate, It always will be you" he try's to persuade me.

Why is this so hard?

Even though I say I hate him, a part of me still loves him.

I know I'm stupid to admit to that, but it's true. He was a big part of my life after all.

But I've got Liam now.

"What did you come to talk about?" I question, focusing back on him.

"Us" he speaks with hope glistening in his eyes.

"Why?" I groan "why now?"

"Because.." he trails trying to find the right words "because I've only just come to realise that when I let you go for her, I was letting the most important person i need and love go" he speaks just above a whisper.

"Only just realised?" I half laugh.

"Yeah" he gulps "but now your engaged, that should be me and you engaged" he adds with sadness.

It's his own fault.

Asshole.

"Do you still love me Kate?" He asks after silence emerges us again.

I don't look him in the eye, and shake my head 'no' even though I still know, no matter what I do, he'll always be my first love.

"Your lying" he replys, tilting my head up so I look him directly in the eye again to tell him the truth.

Those beautiful green eyes.

Dammit.

Why does he have to do this?

I don't love him. I don't. I can't. I can't.

"Do you love me Kate?" He asks again.

I shake my head 'no' once again.

"Speak" he adds.

"No Nate, I don't love you anymore" I reply so low that it's almost mute.

Well it's partly true.

I don't, but I do. If that makes any sense.

I don't love him, but even though I don't want to, I know that a small part of me will always belong to me.

He was a huge part of my life for many years.

I look back up into his eyes and see.. Pain.

Heartbreak.

Devastation.

"Tell me if this means anything to you" he says and begins to lean in for a kiss.

I don't pull away.

I don't move.

I simply close my eyes and lean in further to him.

I don't know why I'm doing this.

But I guess it's the last time.

Our lips connect and move in sync for less than a minute, until we both have to pull away and look at each other in shock.

He stands up from the couch and quickly walks over to the front door and standing there, staring at the blank door.

Neither of us saying a word.

Until my phone starts ringing off the table.

I lean over and see 'Liam' flash across my screen.

Guilt washes over me instantly.

"Go" I almost whisper to Nate, he simply nods with reassurance and leaves without another word being said, I answer the call to Liam with guilt taking over my body that me and my ex boyfriend have just kissed.

What the hell has just happened.
