Chapter twenty two;

Daphnis point of view;

*2 days before the wedding, planning the bachelor & bachelorette parties*

‘so Daph, hows that sound’ Monica asked, staring at me. To be honest I wasn’t listening, all I could think about was the bathroom innocident with Harry.

‘yeah. That sounds great’ I nodded and smiled, pretending I was paying attention. Lily squealed and I figure we were going to a nightclub. Lily loved nightclubs for two reasons…

1.    You could get wasted.

2.    You got hook up with any guy that approached you.

‘wait, whats going on?’ I asked abit confused. I didn’t want to agree to something I would regret. Mon rolled her eyes at me, she hated when I didn’t pay attention.

‘we are going to that new nightclub that opened up down the street’ she slid over the pamphlet and I read the bold writing on the front.

SWEETIES… that’s what the nightclub was called. It sounded cheesy but I couldn’t refuse Lily’s puppy dog eyes.

‘oh yeah, that sounds great’ I smiled as they all grinned at me, pleased with my reply.

Harrys point of view;

‘we must have stripers’ Zayn moaned and everyone just looked at him with stupidity. Obviously there is going to be strippers.

‘maybe we should just stay inside, like at Dereks… have a phew beers and get some stripers’ Liam suggested and everybody nodded in agreement.

I was totally zoned out while they talked about the different kind of stripers they wanted. Blonde, brunette, dark hair, light hair, big boobs, small butts. The list went on…

I kept thinking about Daph, and what happened in the bathroom the other day. I kept wondering if she actually wanted to kiss me too or if I was just imagining it.

‘Harry, you got that?’ Niall asked, staring right at me. I snapped out of my daze and nodded. Im not actually sure what I agreed too.

‘ok, so Daph will sleep at yours then? Its bad luck to share a bed with your fiancée the night before you get married’ Derek grinned and my stomach turned when I realized what I had actually agreed too.

‘oh, ok then. Does she know that?’ I asked, intrigued.

‘of course, she agreed to it’ he laughed like I was stupid or something. Then it made sense, as if Derek would suggest that.

I decided to head home after Derek offered offered everyone a beer. I knew what he was like went he had a few and I didn’t want to be there when that happened.

‘Harry, I’ll walk you out’ Louis jumped up off the lounge and walked me to the door.

‘are you okay?’ he asked when he knew no one could hear us.

‘Lou, you got to be kidding right’ I felt abit tense. Why would he ask such a stupid question?

‘no im not kidding, me and the other boys are worried’ he now had a hold of my shoulder and trying to get me to look at him in the eyes. I shoved his shoulder off.

‘worried, great. That makes me feel heaps better. WORRIED ISNT GOING TO GET ME DAPHNI’ I screamed and immediately covered my mouth with my hand. Oh shit.

‘what?’ Derek asked, now standing in his hall way and looking at me the most distasteful look I’ve ever seen him give, and he gives out plenty.

‘um nothing, I have to go’ I spoke trying to rush out the door but Derek now had a hold of me.

‘I thought we were friends and this whole time you have just wanted Daphni’ whose he kidding, we were never friends.

 ‘Don’t come to the bachelor party, better yet don’t even come to the wedding, if you do show your not standing up there with the people that want me to be with Daphni’ he groaned, pushing me out the door.

‘Don’t tell Daphni about this’ he grinded his teeth together as he slammed the door in my face.

Not go to the wedding. Who was he kidding, of course I was going to the wedding and I couldn’t give a rats ass if I wasn’t standing up there with him.

Daphnis point of view;

After we all had some lunch the girls left to organize what they were going to wear tomorrow night. Monica stayed to help me clean up, she said it was because she knew if she left it would never get cleaned but I think she wanted to talk…

‘Daph, how are you doing?’ told you. she look at me with a worried expression on her face and I just wanted to cry right then and there.

‘im fine?’ I replied, almost making it sound like a question.

‘you don’t seem fine’ she placed the cloth on the bench and walked over to me. ‘tell me whats bothering you’ she sighed, taking a seat next to me on the couch.

‘I don’t know what to say… that im having second thoughts, that when you walked Into the bathroom the other day Harry and I were about to kiss, or that I haven’t stopped thinking about it every since then or how much I really want to kiss him’ I took one deep breath in and breathed out slowly. I hadn’t said any of that out loud and I felt really good.

‘Daph, do you love Derek?’ she asked like there was an obvious answer.

‘Of course’ and I did. I do love Derek.

‘do you want to marry him?’ she asked again like there was an obvious answer.

‘yes’ but I wasn’t sure myself. It felt right, at times. Sometimes it felt incredibly wrong. And I wasn’t sure what gut instinct to go with.

‘then that’s that, your marrying Derek in 2 days so stop thinking about Harry’ she smiled at me sympathetically but I couldn’t erase the image of Harry leaning in towards me. The way he smiled as he rested his forehead on mine and the way I felt his whole body shake. The overwhelming numbness I felt when our lips barely touched… I was marrying Derek in 2 days, but was that the right choice?
