"Yeah, sure." I was so puzzled by the situation, I didn't know what to do. I quickly checked my phone that was charging on the kitchen counter, and saw that I had a text from Harry.
Something's come up. We really need to talk about this. Get back to me ASAP.
The message gave me a knot in my stomach. What was he talking about? I would do anything to reply but with Liam there I didn't have time to get into a conversation with Harry.
"What's going on?" I sat down next to Liam on the couch and tried to sound as comferting as possible. Even though we weren't too close, he was one of Harry's bandmates and bestfriends, so I was willing to help him.
"I've done something bad, Elena, real bad." He looked like he had seen a ghost. I wasn't prepared for what he could tell me. What was so bad that he could only tell me and not the boys?
"Whatever it is, you can tell me." I grabbed his hand to try and ease the fear I could see on his face.
"It's Danielle. I can't believe I did it to her. She didn't deserve it. She was so innocent, I can't believe this." He started to cry. All I could to was hug him. It was like seeing my brother cry. I couldn't help but feel emotional too.
"It's ok, People split up all the time. When it's not ment to be, you can't keep eachother from finding true love." I had no idea where that had come from. I'm usually not very good at giving advice. Liam gave me an even more hurt look then before, and I was utterly confussed.
"I'm not talking about that. And I didn't break up with her. She left me. But she didn't want people to get suspicious so she's just blaming me." If he didn't break up with her, why would she ever leave him? I was completely lost. He kept speaking, "She's so young, I can't believe this is going to happen."
"Liam, what are you talking about?" I was becoming angry with him. I wanted to know what was going on and him speaking in this secret code wasn't helping.
"She's pregnant." His face was completely colorless, and the tears and stopped falling from his eyes. I was frozen by the news I had just heard. This was impossible to hear.
"Pregnant? Are you sure?" A dumb question really, but maybe they hadn't seen a doctor yet.
"Possitive. She visited the doctor about a week ago." He was still as I stood from the couch.
"Does anyone else know?" Maybe this is what Harry was talking about? It wouldn't make any sense for him to be so urgent with something like this, expecially if it didn't really involve us.
"No. I haven't built up the courage to tell the guys. How can I still be in the band if I have a baby? I can't leave these boys though, they're my family. But I can't dissappoint them either." My mind was wondering and I could barely focus on what I was hearing. Danielle was pregnant, Liam might have to leave the band, and Harry had something important he needed to discuss with me. How could everything turn so wrong so quickly?
We spent the night talking about his options. He immediatly discarded the idea of an abortion, which was a relief, and didn't really think adoption was a good plan either. But he didn't want to leave the band either.
"It's up to you and Danielle, really. You should go talk to her. The worst thing you can do is leave the baby without its parents together." He understood what I ment, and decided to go find her. After he left I immediatly grabbed my phone. I had another text from Harry and one from Sadie.
Please call me, this is really important.
Harry's text made me more nervous than I was before.
I gotta talk to you about something. This is CRAZY!
Saide's text probably had something to do with Danielle's pregnancy. They were pretty close since they saw eachother alot at the flat. I'm sure Danielle had told her by now. So I ignored her message and dialed Harry's number. As the phone began to ring, I felt my stomach knot and my heart begin to pound.
"Hey, what took you so long?" Harry's sweet voice coming over the reciever gave me the feeling of comfort, until I remembered there was something important to discuss.
"Sorry, Liam stopped by and had to talk to me about something." I wasn't sure if I should tell him about Danielle. Liam said none of the boys knew and it wasn't my job to tell them his buisness.
"Liam? What did he need to talk about?" Crap, what would I say?
"Um, just Danielle stuff. You know, break up, heart break, all that fun stuff." I hated lying to him. It wasn't fair to him, but I couldn't tell him about Danielle. At least not over the phone. "What did you need to tell me so badly?" I wanted to get down to business. The real reason behind this phone call.
"Are you up to taking a little walk? I want to do it in person." Oh no. I was too scared to speak. What was he planning?
"Ye-yeah, sure." I was barely making sound come out of my mouth. My throat and mouth had gone dry.
"I'll be at your place in about 10 minutes. See you then." He hung up. I was so terrified, I quickly ran to the bathroom to check myself in the mirror. I looked pretty cute with his shirt on, my shorts just peaking out from underneath, and my hair in a messy bun ontop of my hair. I slipped on a little bit of mascara and my brown UGG's and waited for him by the door.
Their was a light knock, and I practically jumped off the couch to the door. I opened it slowly, saw him, and waited for him to say or do something.
"Hey, beautiful." He embraced me with a warm hug. I immediatly felt a million times better. We walked around in silence for a while. The antisipation was killing me.
"What's up, Harry? What was so important you needed to see me in the middle of the night?" I sounded slightly demanding in my voice, but I couldn't help it. I needed to know what was going on, now.
"I was just spendind time with Danielle before I texted you. She was talking about how she thought she just missed her chance to really tell Liam how important he was to her, and that it could have changed alot that had happened with them." I stopped dead in my tracks. I couldn't let him go on not knowing and thinking Danielle was the only victim in the situation.
"Liam's not the one who ended things Harry, she did." The words tasted almost sour in my mouth, but he needed to know his friend was still a good guy.
"What'd you mean?" He looked so lost, and I knew I had to tell him the truth so he knew how much I trusted him.
"She left him, because, well, she found out she's...she's..." I couldn'y bring myself to say the word. It felt wrong.
"She's what? El, tell me." His voice was pleading with me, I could hear it.
"um, she's..." I took a deap breath. "She's pregnant, Harry." He stopped everything; moving, breathing, everything.
"Is that what Liam told you tonight?" There was no emotion in his voice, or his face.
"Yeah. He was too afraid to tell you guys and he didn't know who else to tell." I didn't want him mad at me, and I think he was.
"I can't believe it." He was just barely whispering. He grabbed my hand tight and we walked without a word to a small park. I had no clue where we were, but I trusted Harry. We made our way to some swings and sat there, hand in hand, silent in the dark.
It felt like forever until Harry finally spoke. "I brought you out here for a reason, you know." He stopped. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to answer him, but I didn't say anything. "After spending time with Danielle, hearing how much she cared about Liam, I needed to let you know how I really feel."
I was so touched by what he was saying. "And, how do you feel?" I sounded a little cheesey, like a therapist or something, but there were no other words I could find in my brain.
He just sat there for a while looking at the ground. He finally looked up and I found his eyes, his beautifully piercing green eyes. "I love you, Elena."
