17. I Forgive Harry

My duffel bags are packed. My carry-on bags are packed. My bright pink suitcases are packed.  My room is cleaned and dusted away of my things. Everything I brought vanishing into thin air and then ending up in my suitcases. It seems like every memory of this summer so far is now gone in a heartbeat. At that moment I was sitting in the hot sand my knees squashed up against my chest and my toes curled into the sand. Looking out at the beautiful sunrise of pretty colours, I felt I tear spring up into the corner of my eye. The wind was really blowing today and I could see in the distance, white sand blowing up high in the sky as if it was going to make a tornado happen.  

“Annabeth are you done here it’s time to go” My mother’s voice shouted from above.

“One more minute” I whispered. Obviously my mother could not hear that far so I assumed she came down to see if I was still alive.

“Hon- Oh there you are! I have been looking all over for you. It’s time to go, everything’s packed” I turned slightly to see my mother of 42, standing sideways, wind blowing her light brown hair around and her white capris getting splashed by the crazy sand.  She quickly brushed the extra strands of hair away from her wrinkled face and attempted a smile at me. Realization hit me that this was it. I was leaving, maybe not forever but I was leaving. For once this summer I didn’t want to go, I wanted to stay; with Harry, Louis, Liam, Niall and Zayn.  Especially Harry because no matter what had happened and what will happen, how mad I am at him, deep down I love him.

My mother must have seen the look on my face because she came and slid down next to me. I leaned my head against her bony shoulder and wanted to stay like that for eternity. After about five minutes of being statues in that position, I slowly and steadily got to feet and offered a hand for my mom. We made our way up to the front of the mansion where my dad was running our blood red jeep; I quickly slid into my seat. My dad pressed the black pedal and we were off… down the driveway. Tears slid down my face one faster than the last. I glanced out of my tinted black window for the last glance of my summer fun. He turned the car and started down the paved street. I turned my head facing the front; not looking back again.

Two Days Ago

My parents floated into the room and plopped themselves down on my white hospital bed. I raised my eyebrows with wonder.

“Honey you’re discharged from the hospital” My mom stated. I felt a sense of joy; the joy you get when you finally are allowed to leave the hospital after being in it for two weeks. ‘Finally’ I thought. I started to get up but my mom pushed me back down.

“Hey that’s not fair!” I said.

“You have to stay here for the remainder of the day and then we are free to take you home” I started to smile but then froze.

“What do you mean by home? Like Auntie’s house?” I uttered with a strange tone.

“No honey” My dad warmly said. “We are taking you back to New York for the remainder of the summer”

“What?” I yelled shocked.

“I thought you didn’t like it here?” My dad questioned.

“I didn’t at first but now I do…” I whispered before trailing off. I couldn’t believe they were doing this to me.

“Honey…” My mom said softly before slumping onto the mattress beside my body. ”Your dad and I think it would be better if you came back with us so you can forget all the things that have happened so far this summer. A new start. We are going to get some ice-cream now, would you like some?” I shook my head fiercely still too stunned to speak.

Present Time

*At the Airport*

I was sitting in the dull gray chair that they call comfortable seating and chewing my fingernails nervously. My mother nudged me with an acknowledging smile and then whispered in my ear that it was time to board the plane. I sighed and clamped my head onto my bright pink suitcase handle so hard that my knuckles turned white. I wasn’t ready, I wouldn’t go; they couldn’t make me. Eventually though I got my feet to move a few centimetres rolling my carry on behind me. I then suddenly stopped because I had thought someone had called my name. I shook my head; I was going crazy. Or hallucinating. Whichever, I didn’t want to take it anymore. A few people swore at me from behind since I was blocking the line with my sudden stop. I speed up but then heard it again; people started shoving past me to get up front so they wouldn’t miss the flight. I reached the top of the line a few minutes later and my mom was standing there with her foot tapping against the floor impatiently. I handed my wrinkled ticket to the young lady with dark brown hair at the front desk.  She scanned the number and ripped the end off before handing the remainder of ticket back to me. It was then that I heard the voice again but closer and clearer. It sounded like….


I took one step past into the boarding area. I was willing to go on without Harry but my will force wasn’t strong enough and I turned around to face him. I crossed my arms over my chest and stared him straight in the eye.

“Everyone listen up” Harry yelled. Everybody that wasn’t in a rush snapped their heads to look at Harry while the rest rushed to their boarding areas. It fell silent; you could hear a pin drop it was that quiet. Harry cleared his throat, looked directly at me, gave a loving gaze and opened his mouth.

“Baby you light up my world like nobody else,

The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed,

 But when you smile at the ground it ain't hard to tell,

 You don't know,

 Oh oh,

 You don't know you're beautiful,

 If only you saw what I can see,

 You'd understand why I want you so desperately,

 Right now I'm looking at you and I can't believe,

 You don't know,

 Oh oh,

 You don't know you're beautiful,

 Oh oh,

 That's what makes you beautiful”


“You know I'd fall apart without you

 I don't know how you do what you do

 'Cause everything that don't make sense about me

 Makes sense when I'm with you”


“'Cause I wanna wrap you up

 Wanna kiss your lips

 I wanna make you feel wanted

 And I wanna call you mine

 Wanna hold your hand forever

 And never let you forget it

 Yeah, I, I wanna make you feel wanted”

“Anyone can tell you you're pretty, yeah

 And you get that all the time, I know you do

 But your beauty's deeper than the make-up”


“As good as you make me feel

 I wanna make you feel better

 Better than your fairy tales

 Better than your best dreams

 You're more than everything I need

 You're all I ever wanted

 All I ever wanted”


“You'll always be wanted to me” Harry sang the last line of this mixed song. I was already crying but trying to hold the rest in or I would burst like a dam. I looked back at my mother for a nod before proceeding.

“You think you can come here and just sing for me and everything will be better?” I asked.

“No” Harry said sheepishly. “I came here to sing to you and give you an explanation” He paused as if waiting for my permission.

“Go on”

He continued slowly at first but then with more confidence.

“What you saw that night didn’t happen the way you saw it. I went to the bathroom as I said and was coming back to look for you when some random girl came up and grabbed me. I tried shoving her off but she had an iron grip. She pushed me down the alley and started kissing me. I was trying to get away when you saw us. I didn’t even know her.  I don’t expect you to believe me because I know it sounds cheesy but it happened! Please forgive me!” He explained emphasizing the random.

“I don’t know Harry. I’m just not sure if I can forgive you or not” I swiftly turned back around and started walking back the way I came.

“Please” Harry yelled. “I’m begging you. I love you Annabeth!” I stopped in my tracks momentarily stunned.

“What did you just say” I asked turning 180 degrees.

“I said I love you” Harry said panting as if he was out of breath. I slowly strutted over to him and whispered in his ear “I love you too” And then we kissed as if we weren’t in the middle of an airport as if, we were in our own world.
