22. Confrontation

Jean POV

 

I woke up at 7 AM and ate breakfast. I called my aunt, “Do you want to go out today? I feel like hanging’ out with you, Bob and Gemma”

4 hours passed and I heard a knock on the door. I am so happy to see them again! Words can’t describe the feeling I have right now. I have this overwhelming “butterflies in the stomach” feeling. Bob looked around the room and called my name,

“Jean? Why do you have an envelope addressed to you from Riverdale Hospital?”

“It’s the result of my annual check up”

“Are your results okay?” he asked

I answered; “It says I’m as healthy as a bull” He smirked and returned the envelope back to where he saw it.

Anyway, we went to the mall and ate lunch.

“I’m pregnant!” Gemma exclaimed. I was jumping up and down like a little kid and reached for Gemma to give her a massive bear hug!

“I’m so happy for you! I can’t believe it! Is it a girl or a boy?”

Bob answered, “It’s a girl”

“What are you going to name her?” I asked

“Well, we’re in the process of picking names” Gemma replied “Do you want to go shopping now or are we just going to sit here all day?”

I laughed, “come on let’s go!”

Our first option was to shop but I didn’t want to buy anything because I wouldn’t be able to use it anyway. Second, we want to pamper ourselves but Bob is with us and it would be rude to just leave him watching us instead, we watched Iron Man 3. It’s not my first time but being with them makes me feel like watching a movie for the first time.

It was already 7 in the evening after we watched the movie.

 Out of nowhere Gemma asked a question, “What are you going to do with Harry?”

I sighed; “I just wish things turned out differently” Gemma reached for my hand and squeezed it. I continued, “But I do not regret anything that happened between us. He might be the biggest problem I had to face but he learned a lot”

I looked outside and I found the one thing that I really wanted to do with them.  I asked them to follow me outside the mall and into the streets. It was very magical. There were lights filling the street like a milky way, stalls can be seen everywhere and people are happily walking and enjoying the moment. I held their hands and dragged them to this one place in the corner.

“What is this?” my aunt asked

“It’s what you call a wishing tree. You get a lace, tie it in one of the trees’ roots and make a wish. If it comes true, you go back, untie the lace and thank the tree for granting you the wish.”

My aunt, Bob and Gemma tied the lace and slowly closed their eyes to make a wish. While they were busy, I searched for my strings and untied them.

“You’ve been here before?” Gemma asked

“Yes, two years ago. I wished three times and it finally came true” I handed a string to each one of them and said, “This will serve as a memory for us and I hope that your wish will come true like mine did”

I hugged them one by one and said my goodbyes, “I love you!” I turned around and walked away. My tears slowly lingering my cheeks as I leave the people I love and entered the cab straight to the hotel.

My head is throbbing as I enter my room. I grabbed a pen and pieces of paper. My hand began to write with my thoughts flowing in. After 10 minutes, all my contained feelings are written.

“This is the last thing I can do”

The pain in my head escalated three levels higher. I pulled the medicine in my bag and I swallowed it.

I slammed into my bed and drifted off to dreamland.

 

THE NEXT DAY

 

Jean POV

 

As early as 4 in the morning I washed myself and dressed up nicely because this is the day that I get to face Harry Styles but before that, I fixed my clothes and loaded it up in my hand carry. I left it beside the letters and music sheet on my bed. I took my recorder and letter from the Riverdale Hospital and placed it on top of my hand carry. I grabbed my sharpie pen and wrote, “forever in my heart” in the bathroom mirror. I was ready but my head started to throb again. I drank my medicine and finally I was ready to leave.

 

Bob POV

 

I was getting ready for work when I heard plates being set down on the glass table. I was alone in my apartment and I didn’t have maids. I slowly make my way to the dining area feeling nervous and there I saw Jean setting the table for two. She cooked pancakes, 2 for each with an iced tea.

“How did you get in here?” I asked. She looked at me and smiled but she didn’t say anything.

“Wait here, I’m going to give you your birthday present” she smiled at me and nodded. I ran to my room and got the medium sized box under the bed, covered in blue wrapping paper and white bow.

I jumped out, “Happy birthday Jean!” and to my surprise she wasn’t in the dining room. I placed the gift on top of the table and checked the bathroom, the guest room, the living room but she was nowhere to be found.

 

Jean POV

 

I took a cab to Harry’s house. On the way there my heart was thumping. What if he’s not in the house? What if he doesn’t want to see me? What if he ignores me? There were endless what ifs inside my head.

I knocked but nobody answered. It was surprising that they left the door open. Suddenly, a thump came from upstairs, “what’s that? It must be Harry”

I was thinking of ways to surprise him but on my last step I heard Harry’s voice, “I wrote this song two weeks ago. I think it’s good but I need a feedback from somebody else”

“Girl I see it in your eyes you’re disappointed ‘cause I’m the foolish one that you’ve anointed with your heart. I tore it apart. And girl what a mess I made upon your innocence and no woman in the world deserves this but here I am asking you for one more chance”

I was strucked

The song continued, “Can we fall one more time? Stop the tape and rewind. Oh and if you walk away I know I’ll fade ‘cause there is nobody else. It’s gotta be you, only you. It’s gotta be you, only you”

Then I heard clapping, “You have an amazing voice Harry”

It’s the voice of a girl. WHAT? A girl? There’s got to be something wrong with what I’ve heard.

“Is it good?” Harry asked

The girl laughed “if it’s you, it will never be good” she added “its perfection” then their conversation seems like random stuff. They were laughing loudly and it seems like they were having fun. I was going to give up eavesdropping but one question caught my attention, “What about the girl from the Philippines?”

FINALLY something I can listen to!

“It’s amazing how I fought for her but she gave up so easily” he added, “after all the shit I’ve been through, she throws everything away as fast as a blink of an eye”

“She didn’t say sorry or anything?” the girl asked

“Since then, I haven’t heard from her” then everything else seems like whispers. Suddenly a girl came running towards my direction. She was giggling and seems to be looking for Harry. She stopped in front of me. And right on cue, Haz stopped.

“Jean, what are you doing here?” he asked but continued, “This is um...”

“Hi! Jean it’s a pleasure to meet you. I’m Kyle”

I flashed my smile, “The pleasure is all mine”

She asked, “So, are you the cousin of Harry?” I was supposed to answer but he cut me off, “We’re just acquaintances”

 “I’ll go downstairs. Nice to meet you Kyle, I’ll see you around”

I went straight to the kitchen and made myself a chicken sandwich. I was so focused in making it that I started to put in different ingredients. After realizing it, I stopped and crashed my head in my hands. My head is beginning to throb again and my airway slowly closing.

I heard footsteps, “Jean what are you doing here?”

I raised my head but still facing away from him, “I was hoping I could talk to you”

“What do you want to talk about?”

“Do we have a chance on getting back together?”

He said, “The day you decided to leave, ask anyone I was a total wreck! I couldn’t think straight, I get mad easily and I cry a lot. You gave me a lot of pain but the only thing that got me through is still you” He sighed, “but we can never go back to the way we used to be”

“You never even cared for me”

He moved closer, “I still care for you Jean. I’m just tired of showing it” he added, “for once; I want to follow what my mind is telling me”

The pain I felt is stronger than I have ever imagined. My body couldn’t take the ache any longer. My senses started to fail one by one. My vision blurred like I was seeing two things at the same time. My body felt numb. The only thing I could feel are the falling pieces of my heart.

I closed my eyes and turned to him, “All these years I never forgot you. Even when I had the chance, I couldn’t just let go of everything we had. It was so precious and dear to me that I’d rather die than forget” My eyes still closed I smirked, “I promised myself I would say goodbye but here I am still saying I love you”

“Goodbye? What do you mean? Are you going back to the Philippines?” he asked

I opened my watery eyes and I locked my gaze into his. He was thrown aback by my sudden expression, “promise me you’ll find your happiness”

I gathered the last bits of my strength and I smiled at him, “Words can’t describe the way I feel about you.”

“Why are you like this?” he asked

A tear crawled down from my eyes to my cheeks and I dropped on the floor. The colors of the world started to fade and my heartbeat slowly vanished.

 Goodbye Harry, I will forever cherish you.
