If It Gave Us Time

When Gerard left Barcelona, he left Isla with a promise that things wouldn’t change between them.

They’d been friends since they could walk, they were practically inseparable, and when Gerard made the decision to leave, he did so with a promise to Isla that things between them would be as they’d always been. He promised there’d be calls, he promised that there would be visits and that things would still be the same between them, and for a while they were, but as time passed, things changed.

A few years down the line, and with Isla looking to be set up with someone new, she turns to a friend in hopes of help, something which helps to reintroduce Gerard into her life. With years having passed and their friendship having drifted, will the reintroduction given them a chance to fix things or merely show them that their friendship is something which ought to be left in the past?

A/N: Obviously, I don’t own Gerard Piqué or anything or anyone you may recognize, but the plot and OCs are mine.
