60. The Girl They Called Estrella

 

Estrella’s P.O.V

                I woke up the next morning with Harry’s arms wrapped around me and holding me close to his chest; it was as if he was a little boy afraid of letting go of his favorite blanket. I was in no rush to squirm free from he’s strong arms so I just laid there replaying what I was sure was a dream. I felt around on the bed for my phone while trying not to wake up Harry, I swore that I had left it around the bed somewhere. I lifted my head so I can peak around and finally spotted it on the other side of the bed on top of Harry’s nightstand. I was never really smooth at anything so it was a complete shock to me when I wiggled free of Harry’s tight grip without him even stirring one bit. I tried to be as quiet as a mouse as I tiptoed towards my phone but the wood flooring was making it hard with it creaking with almost every step that I took but I made it to the phone without waking the snoring pop star. My going ninja was worth it because I found what I was looking for as soon as I unlocked my phone, the proof that last night was in fact not a dream but a beautiful reality. I couldn’t help but grin from ear to ear at the picture that was lighting up the screen of my phone that was lying in the palm of my hand. I then chuckled at the thought that I was smiling hard over a picture of a simply lock but after all that lock did have a lot of special meaning, it wasn’t just a lock it was a promise. I smiled again as I thought of another promise that happened last night, the promise that Harry would never leave me.

Harry’s P.O.V

                I was up hours before she ever woke, honestly I barely slept after the conversation I had with Estrella’s mum. I wasn’t about to tell her I was awake though as she tried to be sly and get out of my arms trying not to wake me, I mean she looked so proud that she had escaped without waking me up. As she crept I peeked my eyes open a little and saw her face cringe whenever the floorboard would creek and I decided to calm some of her nerves by letting out a loud snore to insure her that I was “asleep”. I was curious though as to wear she was trying to run off to, I peeked and saw that she was heading towards my nightstand and then is when I realized that I must have left her cellphone there after I called her mum. I saw her grab it successfully and then begin to smile down at whatever was on her screen. I decided that now was a perfect time for me to “wake-up” and I let out a big yawn. I saw her jump scared at the sound and tried to suppress a chuckle.

                “Well good morning sleeping beauty.” She said as she walked back towards the bed and gave me a warm embrace.

                “How is my star doing this morning?” I asked while she was still in my arms.

                “I’ll be better after I wash up. So I just got a text from Natasha asking if we were doing anything today because she wanted a girl’s day.” She said after she finished gargling the water in her mouth and spitting it out in the sink.

                “Sorry love but you’re stuck with her because I have no plans for us today. I’m actually going to be out with Louis today so I guess while you guys are having a girl’s day we’re going to be having a boy’s day. I’ll give you the spare key to the apartment in case you get in before me. ”I replied.

                “Okay so everything works out perfectly then. I promise not to sell the key on eBay” She called out from behind the closed bathroom door.

                I chuckled, I had to have this day away from her so I can figure everything out, plus I REALLY had to talk to Louis about everything and at least have someone else’s input. Estrella then came out allowing me to enter the bathroom and after I closed the door shut behind me I quickly texted Louis that I needed to talk to him ASAP, seconds later I got a response from him telling me to meet him at the café in 15 minutes. I got out of the restroom and put on the first shirt and jeans I could find, slipped on my white converse and quickly gave Estrella a peck on the lips before heading out the door.

Estrella’s Mom’s P.O.V

                I’m having the same dream that you have been having every night since I found out that Estrella was out in London. It’s dark and I see Estrella is in danger, I’m running as fast as I can but somehow even with all of my might I’m still stuck in the same place not getting any closer to Estrella. I remember than I have my gun and I aim it to shoot at the man in all black, I can’t see his face but I know that he is taking my daughter away, I miss. Suddenly Estrella’s facial expression changes and she starts to scream at you,

                “Ma NO STOP IT, I LOVE HIM!” She screams.

                She hugs the man in all black and removed the hoodie that was covering he’s face to kiss him. After the kiss ends I finally saw the man’s face and saw that it’s none other than Harry. Suddenly you hear a phone ringing…

                “HELLO! ESTRELLA ARE YOU OKAY?” I screamed into the phone, still pumped with adrenaline from the dream.

                “Hello Ms. Perez so sorry to bother you but I just need a favor from you.” A male voice replied and I automatically knew that it was Harry.

I didn’t get to spend much time with Harry which is most of the reason why I don’t feel at ease when it comes to him and Estrella. I might not know him personally but what I heard from Estrella, even before when she was just a fan, I believed he was a good guy. I use to think that I had an instinct when it came to knowing who the bad guy is but since I let Ricky slip through the radar I’ve lost faith in my instinct.

I looked at the time and realized that whatever he needed must have been important since from where he was calling was late.

“Sure Harry go ahead, what do you need?” I asked, a hint of curiosity slipping through my lips.

                “Do you have any idea how I can get a hold of Estrella’s dad?” he asked.

                I felt the room go cold as the memory of the man that abandoned both me and Estrella came racing through my brain.

Harry’s P.O.V

                “So what’s the emergency Haz?” Louis asked after we both got our tea and sat down where no one could see us.

                I told him how amazing the whole surprise went, every single little detail and he was drinking all of the information in. That’s one thing I loved about having Louis as a close mate, he was sassy and fun but when you needed him to be serious, listen to your problems and give advice he was up to the task. I finally got to the part where I called Estrella’s mum and after I told him everything that she told me is when he finally closed his mouth from shock and spoke.

                “Hold on second Styles, so what you’re telling me is that Estrella’s mum isn’t her mum and her dad isn’t her dad?” Louis repeated what I just had told him.

                Just as I was going to clarify more we were spotted and soon enough were surrounded by a crowd of fans. Luckily we always walked around with security not too far away and they escorted us out. We decided to head back to my place and finished the discussion there. As soon as we arrived at the apartment Louis dashed to my room and grabbed a seat on the corner of my bed and waited for me to continue were we left of back at the café.

Estrella’s P.O.V

                Natasha and I had a blast, we decided to do what any girl would do when having a girl’s day… SHOP! We hit almost every shop there was and literally shopping till we dropped into the car to take us back to Harry’s. I pulled out my spare key from my purse and opened the door, the apartment was quite so I figured that Harry wasn’t back yet from his boy’s day with Louis. Natasha of course headed to the kitchen to eat and I told her that I would be right there after I went to the bathroom, that smoothie I had while we were out was hitting my bladder hard. As I approached the door to Harry’s room I heard talking going on. I recognized Harry’s voice but there was no one responding so I figured maybe he was just on the phone. I was going to go to the other bathroom so I wouldn’t have to interrupt but then I heard him say my name. I knew it was wrong to eavesdrop but I think there’s a special accept ion when you hear your own name being called. I pressed my ear to the door and listened.

                “Last night after Estrella’s whole wishing about her dad thing I felt completely awful so I decided to call up her mum and see if maybe I could get some information to where he is, he’s number so I could talk to him. As soon as I asked about him her mum broke down and told me everything. She wasn’t able to have children so her and her husband decided to adopt and that’s how they got Estrella. The reason that her husband left was because he thought it was time to tell Estrella the truth and where she came from but she just wasn’t ready to tell her so he backed his stuff and left because he couldn’t live with the lying anymore. I don’t think I can tell her, it’s not in my place and MS. Perez isn’t going to tell her anytime soon.”

                My heart stopped right in its tracks. Just then Natasha came up to where I was,

                “Hey what’s going on—“ she began but the act of me barging in the room cut her off.

                “TELL ME YOU’RE JOKING! TELL ME THAT YOU KNEW I WAS HERE ALL ALONG AND THAT YOU THOUGHT IT WOULD BE FUNNY TO TEACH ME A LEASON ABOUT EAVESDROPPING!” I screamed while tears came streaming uncontrollably down my face.

                It was then that I realized that Harry wasn’t alone, through all of the tears I saw none other than Louis perched at the edge of Harry’s bed.

                “Estrella, I’m sorry you had to hear it like that bu—“ He said as he came closer to me but I stepped back not wanting to be touched while my world was crumpling around me.

                “NO! DON’T TOUCH ME AND DON’T CALL ME THAT!” I said before I turned around and headed towards the door. I ran out the apartment and just kept running, I didn’t know where I was going but anywhere was better than the apartment where I found out that I wasn’t who I thought I was.

                I decided to call the one person that I know would never let me down.

                “Brandi I need you.”

Harry’s P.O.V

                “Have you guys found her?” I asked as I was on the phone with everyone.

                Everybody was on the search for Estrella and as it was getting darker I was starting to get more worried.

                Liam’s voice boomed through the speakers of my phone, “Guys come back to Harry’s apartment ASAP! Some guy just dropped off a letter from Estrella.”

                Everyone gathered around the sofa while Liam handed me the letter to read. I took a deep breath and began to read through the already forming tears, the paper still containing her scent.

                “Hello everybody,

                Stop looking for me because I’m not coming back. I’m not coming back to Harry’s apartment, not to Florida and definitely not back to my “home”. Don’t worry about where I am because I am perfectly safe and in a lying free environment. I wish you all the best in life and I loved you all but this is officially goodbye.

                                Yours Truly,

                                The girl they called Estrella

                In a rage I threw the letter and envelope on the floor.

                “SHE CAN’T BE GONE! SHE CAN’T BE!” I screamed and fell to the floor and Liam held me to calm me.

                “She can’t be gone Liam.” I said in a whisper

                “But she is Harry.” Liam responded and handed me the envelope back.

                I opened it and my heart shattered into more pieces and I held Estrella’s necklace in the palm of my hand and ran my thumb over the E.
