23. Daphni's confession.


ok guys, this is the second last chapter. im really sad its ending, but thats ok. i love you all for reading & hopefully you all read my next fanfic... Its A Small Word. xx


Harry’s point of view;

*The day before the wedding, 10am*

I woke up with a splinting headache, from drinking myself to sleep. I couldn’t bring myself to tell Daphni what happened, because telling her Derek kicked me out of the wedding would mean I would have to tell her how I felt and I just don’t think I was ready for that. I don’t think I’ll ever be ready for it.

I turned over on my side, reaching for my phone sitting on the bedside table.

10 missed calls.

10! Why the hell did I have 10 missed calls?

Missed calls from;

-       Louis

-       Louis

-       Louis

-       Louis

-       Liam

-       Zayn

-       Niall

-       Daphni

-       Daphni

2 missed calls from Daphni, and the rest were probably just the boys checking in on me, worried I suppose.

I decided to listen to my voicemails; I only had four out of those ten missed calls.

‘Hey man, its Lou. Just checking to see if you are all right, call me when you can’ that was the first voicemail.

Then the second… ‘Harry, how are you doing? Just call me when you’re ready’ that was from Liam.

Next was… ‘hey mate, its Zayn. Call me’ pretty brief, like Zayn.

‘Harry, call me! I need to talk to you!’ that was Daphni and she sounded angry. I really didn’t want to call her, but I had too…

I sat up in my bed, waiting patiently as phone rang and rang.

‘HARRY!?’ someone screamed through the other line.

‘Hey Daph’ i replied, yawning. I was still so tired.

‘oh… hello there. Do you know what time it is?’ she shouted, I was almost scared to answer.

‘10am?’ I asked, confused. Was I supposed to be somewhere.

‘well im glad you know that, SO WHY ARENT YOU HERE!’ I heard her throat choking up.

shit, the wedding rehearsal.

Daphnis point of view;

I cant believe he forgot. How could he forget?

‘oh im so sorry, I’ll be there as soon as I can’ I sighed, I could hear him panting around the house trying to get ready.

‘no, Harry. Forget it, don’t bother’ I moaned, I may have been a tad bit on the anxious side about the wedding tomorrow but I wasn’t taking that out on him… his my best friend; he should of been the first one here.

‘no, Daph, seriously… im leaving now’ I heard him hale a cab and that just made me even more furious.

‘please, just don’t come… you don’t need to be in the wedding, just remember to show up tomorrow’ and I hung up the phone. I couldn’t deal with this right now, my emotions were all over the place. I was nervous, I was happy, I was angry, I was sad and then I was excited, tonight was the first time in a very long time that I have been out with the girls.

*later that night, getting ready for the bachelorette party*

‘Daph, come on… lets go’ Monica screamed as I looked at the time. Snap, 8pm. Jayme was the one getting us into this new club and she said to meet her there at 10 to 8, we were already late.

‘im coming’ I screamed out of my bedroom, sliding on a silky green dress. I stepped out of the bedroom, flattening my dress and picking up my handbag.

‘wow’ Mon, Dan and El all said in sync.

‘thanks guys’ I laughed as they raced me out the door and into the cab.

‘so, where’s Lily?’ I asked as we all finally slid in and the cab raced off a million miles an hour.

‘she wanted to meet us there with Jayme’ Danielle squeezed my hand next to me. ‘how are you feeling?’ she asked, now looking straight at me. I could feel her staring into my soul, she had that affect on people. She saw right through me, it was almost impossible to lie to her.

‘ooooooh, can we please not talk about… tomorrow, just for tonight’ I sighed, running my fingers through my tangled hair. Like my hair, my thoughts were a mess.

‘Alright, alright’ Eleanor laughed as she grabbed my arm and smiled. She always made me feel happier.

‘WERE HERE’ the cab driver called as he came to a halt. Monica paid him and we stepped outside to see over a hundred girls lining up. We were never going to get in.

Monica approached the security guard whilst hundred of girls stared us down, we all hide behind Monica as she spoke to him.

‘Yes, its under Daphni’ she moaned, I could tell she was getting frustrated. He pulled out his black leather clip board and started to scroll through names.

‘ooooooh, your friends with Jayme… why didn’t you say so’ he lifted up the red velvet line and let us through, as we walking through he grabbed me by the arm and said. ‘congratulations’ all I could do was smile.

We walked inside and we spotted Jayme and Lily standing by the bar, chatting up the bar tender.

‘over here’ they screamed as they smirked at us. They really couldn’t control themselves for one second.

Jayme handed me a drink, which I didn’t know the name off and I scowled it down, watching everyone around me. Everyone was dancing, and laughing, generally looking like they were having a good time, until you approached them closer and you noticed something. They were running away for something, or someone, drowning their sorrows with alcohol and that’s when I realized I was doing the exact same.

Harrys point of view;

‘Yes Lou, im completely fine’ Lou was calling from Dereks bathroom. He was at the bachelor party and I could tell he was having the time of his life, he just didn’t want to admit it.

‘are you sure?’ he asked again, for the hundredth time.

‘yes, go have fun… I’ll see you tomorrow’ I was about to hang up the phone when I heard Lou whisper.

‘Harry, don’t do anything stupid tomorrow… please’ then he hung up on me. Don’t do anything stupid? What was that suppose to mean? If anything, Daphni is the one doing something stupid. Marrying that twit.

I grabbed a beer out of my empty fridge and took a seat on the sofa. Resting my head against the crest I had already built it.

Why was Daphni marrying him? Didn’t she see he was all wrong for her?

I couldn’t understand it, and the more I tried too the more it hurt. I didn’t want to go to the wedding tomorrow, but I will… because I know how much Daphni wants me there.


I heard someone pounding on my door.

Who could that be?

I placed my beer on the coffee table and jumped up to answer it. As I opened the door slowly I saw Daphni standing there, uneasily. She was wobbling from side to side, trying to keep her balance. She was absolutely smashed.

‘Hazzz!’ she screamed as she jumped into my arms, I quickly grabbed a hold of her before she fell straight to the floor.

‘Daph, what are you doing here?’ I asked as I placed her onto the lounge. Lifting her legs up and seating under them.

‘im suppose to sleep here, remember’ she look at me with an expression on her face like as though I should of already known that. And that’s when I remembered I did, but I thought Derek wouldn’t have allowed her after our little incident.

‘oh, that’s right’ I decided to play along, see how it would pan out.

‘anyway, why aren’t you at Dereks, oh I mean my place… for Dereks PARRRTAAAAY’ she waved her arms in the air as she screamed the word party. I couldn’t help but laugh at her.

‘hey, don’t laugh at me’ she playfully hit me and I just grinned.

‘sorry Daph, but you’re hiliarious when your drunk’ I nudged her back and winked. She was also a massive flirt when she was drunk aswell.

‘im not drunk, I barely even drunk anything’ incorrect grammar is the first sign.

‘take me to bed’ she lifted up her arms and pouted her mouth. She was gorgeous.

‘alright’ I moaned, picking her up and heading to my bedroom.

‘you smell really good’ she laughed as she smelt my neck. It sent shivers down my spine and made my stomach turn. She was drunk, I kept repeating to myself. She didn’t mean anything she was saying.

As I placed her down on the bed and helped her get under the covers she smiled up at me with admiration in her eyes. I stroked the hair out of her face and kissed her gently on the forehead. She yawned; she was already falling asleep. I started to walk out of the bedroom when she spoke…

‘I love you Harry’ I ran back over to the bed and knelt down beside her.

‘You what’ I asked, hoping she didn’t fall asleep on me.

‘I love you silly’ she placed one hand on my face and I felt heart race. She was drunk, she didn’t mean anything she was saying… or did she.

‘your drunk’ I thought I’d give it a shot. Most people are the most honest when they have consumed alcohol and most of the secrets I know about Daphni she has told me when she was wasted.

‘so… doesn’t mean I don’t love you’ she now looked angry. Sitting up in my bed and staring right into my eyes… ‘do you think Derek is wonderful?’ she now asked, her eyes glimmering with hope.

‘yes, you love him’ I sat on the end of the bed and watched her toss around my answer.

‘I think your wonderful’ she now smiled nervously, I have never seen her look at me that way. I felt a weird tingling sensation run through my whole body and I had to force myself to get up off the bed. I couldn’t hear this, not the night before her wedding.

‘Daph, I think your wonderful too’ I now spoke, standing at the doorway and turning off the lights. ‘now sleep’ I was closing the door when I heard her say.

‘Harry, I really do love you’ and as I opened the door to look at her she was already fast asleep.

she loves me?
