17. Are you ok?

Dani's P.O.V.

Weirdest phone call of my life. I couldn't process what had just happened. Harry had called, but the line got cut off or something. Ugh, I don't know. All he told me was he broke up with Caroline because he...that's just it. I don't know what he needed or wanted. What if he was being hurt by someone or something, like Caroline? What if he had an accident? What if he's sick? I have all these questions, but no answer. I decided to call him back. "We're sorry. The cellular customer you have dialed is unavailable at the moment. Please try again later" was all I heard. Fuck.


I sat up in my sleeping bag. The girls and I had all slept in the main room in the basement. I glanced over at Megan, then Danielle and lastly Jess. I stood up, making sure I didn't wake them. I dressed myself to go look for Harry. Besides, it was now 3:30am. I didn't want them lacking sleep, however, I didn't want to go alone. Suck it up. I thought. I ran up the stairs and put my shoes on. I quickly headed for the car. I forgot my keys in the house and I couldn't go back in because I had, like a dummy, set the alarm. I started walking towards the bungalow. It was only a half an hour drive, how long could the walk be? It couldn't be that long.


I shivered as the cold winter air hit my face. I checked the time. Dec. 20, 2010 @ 3:53am, my phone read. I had only been walking for 23mins. Dammit. I didn't even know why I was doing this. The only thing Harry had done to me in the last little while was hurt me. I know he broke up with Caroline, but that doesn't mean I'll go crawl back to his feet, nor does it mean I'll forgive him. My phone started ringing again.  I saw Niall's name appear across the screen. I answered. "Dani? Did I wake ya?" he asked. "Nah. What's up Niall?" I replied, adding in a yawn. "Umm...well...ya see.." he said. "Niall, don't worry me. What's wrong?" I added. "Well, I got up to get a snack and.." he paused. "And I went to get Harry, so he could help me make something and when I went in his room he wasn't there. Do you know where he went?" he finished. I probably choked on my own spit. He's gone. "W-what? What do you m-mean he's not there?" I stuttered. "He's not here. Is he at your place?" Niall suggested. I quickly replied "Umm, no he's not. Just give me a minute. I'll be on my way over in a bit. Bye" I said to Niall. I didn't tell him I had already been walking. He hung up and I started running. I ran as fast as I could. I came to a stop sign. I checked the phone clock. 4:12am. Its been just over an hour. I had made it all the way to the stop sign that marked their street. I sprinted to their house and knocked on the door. Luckily, Niall was still up and eating cereal. I was frozen and he could tell. "Hey. How'd you get here so fast?" he asked. "Long story. Get dressed, grab your car keys and lets go. I know where he is and I'll explain on  the way". I ran to Niall's car. I was so anxious. I pulled out my phone and texted Harry. No answer. I called him, still no answer. Niall got in the car. I explained how Harry had called me and how the line went blank. He looked as concerned as I was. We started driving. 


About 10mins later, Niall and I arrived at a park, where Harry and I used to hang out a lot. We would go there to think and just be left alone. I knew for a fact he still went there occasionally. He loved it, so why would  he just stop. Niall pulled into a parking lot right near the park. I was so concentrated on finding Harry. I ran to the park. I looked around. No sign of him. Niall caught up to me. He quickly figured out what I was doing. I ran to the other side of the field, to a bench that had been there for as long as I could remember. With Niall following, we sat down. "This is just so crazy. Why would he do this?" I asked. I felt the tears well up in my eyes. It was just so weird. Why would Harry break up with Caroline at this time of the night and then go missing? Niall sighed. "I don't know Dani. It's not like he won't come back, ya?". "I honestly don't know. He might and he might not. He's just like that. No words to describe it, that's just his personality. My question is; why would he do this when he knows for a fact that we have a meeting tomorrow, well technically today, with Simon. Like really! Simon Cowell of all people. He's not one you just cancel on!" I found myself starting to shout. I honestly didn't know why he did what he did. Sometimes, I swear if I didn't love that boy, my life could be so much easier.


Niall' P.O.V.


She was just so stressed. I didn't know how to answer her questions. All I knew was what it felt like to be so worried about someone. "I'm sorry. And I know he will be sorry for worrying you like that" I said, putting my arm around her shoulders and squeezing her. She just sighed. "Let's go back. It's getting cold, and besides, we have a meeting with the Simon Cowell, whether Harry decides to show up or not" I told her. "I'm not going home until I find him. You go, I'll walk. It wasn't that far" she told me standing up and starting to leave. "No Dani, you're not leaving me or walking home. Its too cold. I'll help you find him" And with me saying that, a huge grin crept across her face. 


About an hour later, at about 5am we were still out looking. This was going to be a long day.


Dani's P.O.V.


"Pull over! Pull over! I think I see him!" I shouted at Niall. We had just started our way to a near by pond that Harry and I went skating all the time as kids. I hopped out of the car and went to go see if the curly-haired boy sitting on the bench was in fact Harry. I walked slowly towards him. "Harry? Is that you?" I asked. The boy turned around. It was him. It was Harry. "Yeah, why are you here?" he asked sounding annoyed. "Uhh...Harry? Are you ok? Niall and I have been out for hours looking for you. What happened?" I asked starting to worry because of his tone. I wonder if Caroline said anything about me. "Just leave me the hell alone and I'll be fine" Those were the words I didn't want to hear. He turned around to face the lake again. I went and sat beside him just as Niall had caught up to me. All 3 of us just sat on the bench in an awkward silence until "Well, we're glad to see ya?" Niall tryed to say but it came out more so as a question. I just hated seeing him like this. He had only ever done this when he had done something wrong and he knew it too. He knew I was going to find out sooner or later.


About 10 minutes of just complete silence, I was fed up. Niall and I had asked so many questions as to why the phone call was so off. "Harry, do you realize how stubborn you're being? Niall and I have tried so many things just to try to get you to tell us what happened!" I shouted. I had never blown up like this. "All we want to do is help you! But no, you're too busy only giving us dirty looks and pouting so, Harry? Why the hell is that? I'm going to ask you one more time or I'm leaving because last time I checked we all had a meeting with the Simon Cowell in just a few hours!" I finished. He looked so hurt, all I wanted to do was apologize and hope it would make everything better but the truth was, I wasn't going to apologize because we all knew what I had just said was entirely true. I got up and left.
