The Way We Used To Be! (1D Love Story)

Stephanie Parkson was a typical american girl, in Florida was her best friend, Niall Horan, they were inseparable!

They lived in Florida for about two years when Stephanie's father suddenly announced his new job in Washington. She didn't like the fact how she would have to say goodbye. She was scared she would loose contact with Niall. Guess what, she did.

After another two years, her father and mother split, Stephanie's mom, Angie, took custody of Stephanie. Once again, moving to another state. This time it had an advantage, sun kissed beaches and hot boys. The beautiful state of California.

What happened when she enrols in Beverly High School? A private school. One that came with memories. She saw her old friend. The one she hasn't seen in 4 years. Niall was an entirely different boy, puberty had hit him. Girls surrounded him. New friends.

What did Stephanie think? Did Niall remember her? What was going to happen? Would relationships go back to the way they used to be? Or not?


1. Saying Goodbye.

Stephanie's POV

I look into the eyes of Niall. His eyes were brimming with tears. His expression was one that was pleading me to say I was joking. 

"This cannot be happening," Niall shrieked, "not now, not ever!"

I rested my head on the nook of his neck. I was afraid to answer, knowing I would go full out crying if I did. 

"You are at least staying until the end of grade 7 right?" He asked between sobs.

I didn't want to answer to that question but I knew I had to. "In a week. I'll be at the airport. If today's the 1st of March... I leave March 7th."

"No! What?" He yelled in rage.

"Don't be mad. My dad just suddenly told us we were moving." 

I was honestly surprised and devastated when my dad broke the news to Jack and I. My brother was even more devestated because he had many more friends than I did. He was going to miss more than I was.

"Why? How could he do this?"

"He's my father, plus he found a new job."

Niall hugged me tightly. "Can I come with you?" 

A light smile finally appeared on both of our faces. The tears stopped streaming and we sat up.

"When we're older, we're going to meet again. I promise." I hugged him back, holding him longer than he hugged me.

"I promise as well." He held out his pinky and I wrapped mine around it. 

"We're inseparable, best friends forever." I added.

He nodded his head in agreement. His blonde locks of hair shaking up and down. 

"We're 12 now. We're going to meet before we're 20. Can you promise?" He asked.

"I promise." I smile at him with a sincere expression.

"I don't know what I'll do when you leave." He said silently and with a bit of an embarrassed tone in his voice.

I knew what he meant. We were the unpopulars at school. The outcasts. The ones that the popular kids picked on. The kids that got called, "Ew!"

We supported each other, but I moved to Washington, Niall was alone. All alone with no one to support him. It was all my fault. 

6 days later....

Everything in my room was packed. My clothes, my furniture, and my school books. Everything was being hauled up into the moving van. I decided to walk to Niall's house. I wanted to say one last goodbye.

I rang the doorbell once before he came to open the door. His eyes were bloodshot. I hugged him and we backed into his house. I didn't bother to take off my shoes, knowing I couldn't stay for very long. We hugged, never letting go of each other. I realized the time and had to pull away. "I'll miss you." I spoke softly. 

"I'll miss you, too." Niall grabbed my hand and gave it a squeeze. He walked me out to his porch. "Please promise to call or text or Skype." He kept rambling on.

"I will, I promise I will keep in contact."

"Bye." We hugged one last time.

I quickly walked back home, not a single glance back towards his house. I knew if I did, I would be running back to it and crying. 

By the time I got home, the moving truck was already packed and my parents were in the car. Our furniture was going to be shipped to us while we were on the plane.
