21. chapter 21


“Who is this fag?” Jake Barked as he let go of my wrist harshly to size up Harry.

“Harry go.” I said sternly as I stepped between the two boys, it was definitely clear to me that Jake had been drinking before he got here. “Jake have you been drinking?” I asked .

“Why does it matter?” he barked.

“You know exactly why!” I said stomping my foot.

“Why? Because of that Fucking bastard!” He spat. “That’s why you fucking hate everything! God your pathetic, did you tell him what that bastard did to you? Why are you on his side?  Huh. You barely know him.” He said pointing to Harry, this time Jake was yelling in my face, his face was beat red as he just got madder. I began to cower, I broke down in front of Harry and Jake.

“Clearly I don’t know you anymore.” I sniffled. Harry came to my side putting his hand on my back as he drew circles on my back with his thumb. “Just leave Jake, I don’t want to talk to you.” I said whipping the tears from my face as I ran back into the house slamming the door behind me, at this point I didn’t care about Jake, I just wanted him gone, I slid to the ground and pulled my knees to my chest. My sobbing died down when I herd mumbling from outside, I lifted my head just in time to see Harry slam the door behind him, his knuckles turning white from him clenching them so hard, he was breathing heavily as his chest rapidly rose and fell and his nose flared. Harry didn’t say a word, he just sat down next to me resting his elbows on his knees as he stared blankly at the wall in front of him his jaw still clenched  . “Is Jake gone?” I whispered as I watched Harry’s jaw clench and release rapidly like he was grinding his teeth.

“What happened?” was all Harry asked.

“How much did he tell you.”

“His name is Blake.” He stated as he turned to face me, I watched as his eyes had softened back to his natural Green colour “And from what I herd Jake say to you, he really fucked you over.”

I took in a deep breath before meeting my eyes with Harry’s “It was about two years ago.” I said taking another shaky breath “Blake was my boyfriend, heck he was the first guy I actually thought I loved.” I chuckled bitterly “Well I was 15 first starting high school he was 17, at first things were fine, we used to hang out all the time, he would take me out on proper dates….” I trailed off

“Dates to the Diner” Harry mumbled.

“Exactly, we used to go there every Sunday morning, sit in booth 5 and talk for hours.” I huffed.

“I’m sorry Ha-“

“You didn’t know.” I chuckled “Well things started off great, but the night of our Semi-formal was what scared me, He had drank, he was drunk, really drunk. I was fine with him being drunk, I was used to it. It didn’t happen all at once, he used to call me, ask me where I was, who I was with, then it turned to me not being able to leave his sight, he began to drink more, the more drinks the more bruises. So the night of the dance Blake had taken me back to his house where he started yelling, telling me I was worthless, saying I didn’t love him…” a lump started in my throat as I tried to continue but as I opened my mouth a sob escaped. Harry wrapped his arms around me in a hug.

“Shh, its Ok love.” He cooed.

“He raped me Harry. Jake knew, he knew everything, he was by my side when I was put in the hospital due to the concussion that Blake gave me that night, Sam was there too, but Jake vowed to stay by my side, to protect me, he promised it wouldn’t happen again.” I mumbled into his chest. Harry’s hand stopped rubbing my back as he held me out I looked down avoiding his gaze. Harry lifted my chin so I would look at him. His eyes showed sorrow and pain, it looked like he was about to cry and before I could say anything more Harry  placed his hand on my cheek causing my stomach to do summersaults as hhe used his thumb to wipe my tears away. “God I probably look like shit.” I chuckled.

“No.” Harry said softly “You look beautiful, you always do, your not worthless and don’t let anybody make you think that you are.” He whispered. Harry’s eyes glistened as I saw them start to water.

“Harry?” I asked as I brought my hand to his cheek the same way he had mine catching the single tear that dropped. “Why are you crying.” I giggled softly as tears still flowed from my eyes.

“I hate it when girls cry, especially you, it makes me feel bad which makes me cry.” He said smiling softly.

“You are so pathetic.”  I smiled.

“I know” Harry said smiling, it was a true smile, one that reached his eyes and showed his dimples. I reached up and poked his left dimple causing Harry to blush. “God I really am pathetic” Harry said lowering his head. I let out a laugh as I lifted his head, he was blushing like crazy as he avoided my eyes, he was acting as if one of the boys had said something embarrassing about him in an interview and as all eyes were on him as he just smiled biting his lower lip and looking at the ground.

“So why don’t we continue what we started?” I asked as I stood up and kicked my boots off.

“Ok, but I'm going to need you to grab your heals.” Harry winked

I grumbled as I picked my heals off the ground and placed them on my feet. Harry led me down to the living room “So where is everybody else?” I questioned realising we hadn’t been interrupted this whole time.

“I kicked them out.” Harry said bluntly.

“You didn’t…”

“No, I didn’t, but they went out for a few hours, they left just before you got here.” He shrugged as he placed his phone into the stereo system and for the second time tonight Coldplay’s Yellow came on. I smiled at the memory of Harry and me dancing at the restaurant the first time we met. “May I have this dance?” Harry asked extending his hand out to me.

My smile became bigger as I took Harry’s hand and he twirled me around before placing his hand on my waist still holding my other hand as I placed my hand on his shoulder.

“Your skin 
Oh yeah your skin and bones 
turn into something beautiful 
you know you know I love you so 
you know I love you so” 
 Harry sang, but that was the only line he sang before pausing to look into my eyes, we were still dancing to the music as I looked into his bright Green eyes. “Your eyes were brown last time I saw them.” Harry said as he continued to look at me.

“Well what colour are they now?”

“Hazel, I have seen them go from Brown to Green to hazel, but I have never seen them actually change colour.” He smirked.

“I saw your eyes transform from dark almost black to a soft green.” I said reaching up to move the Hair out of his eyes. Harry looked at me questionably “When you came in after talking the Jake, your eyes were dark, scary almost, but when you looked at me they softened, changed right then to green.” Harry blushed as he looked down burying his face in my hair. I giggled.

“What has gotten you all giggly?” Harry asked with amusement in his tone. This time it was my turn to blush.

“I’m just having a really good time.” I shrugged. “I haven’t had this much fun since I met you guys in the summer.” The song had already ended but none of us cared, we were still standing in my living room dancing to no music.

“So do you still have One Direction infection?” Harry suddenly asked wiggling his eyebrows I raised my eyebrow at Harry as he let go of his hold on my waist and swirling me around, my dress spun out around me and then fell back down as Harry grasped my waist again, our foreheads were touching only a few inches were left between us

“I don’t think I’ll ever be.” I admitted

“Oh? And why is that.” Harry asked with an amused smile on his face.

“Well, Liam once said in an interview that the only way to get rid of One Direction infection is get a kiss from Harry styles Himself.” I said with a cheeky grin.

“Oh is that so?” Harry teased “Well why doesn’t Doctor Harry fix that.”

I was about to say something what I was cut off as Harry closed whatever distance we had placing his lips on mine, this kiss was filled with love, passion, everything a girl could imagine, for the first time in a long time it felt like nothing around me mattered, it was just the two of us Harry let go of my hand placing it around my waist along with his other one, I felt that same spark that I felt earlier but this time I didn’t pull away Harry pulled our bodies closer as I wrapped my arms around his neck. It felt like everything was moving on slow motion it was a sweet little kiss but it had to end at some point, Harry pulled away resting his forehead back on mine as a smile spread across his lips, without thinking I moved my hand and poked him on his left cheek where his dimple showed causing Harry to stifle a laugh.

“Cured?” Harry asked

“I don’t think it was enough” I said before this time I crashed my lips to Harry’s I wrapped my arms around his neck again before Harry started taking over as he slid his tongue across my bottom lip, I smiled into the kiss as I teasingly stood my ground not giving in. Harry tried again but it was no use. Harry groaned against my lips before pulling away and glaring at me.

“Haven’t you made me suffer enough?” Harry whined. I just shrugged biting my bottom lip teasingly. I let go of Harry’s neck and slid my heals off relaxing a little more as I stepped flat on my feet. Harry chuckled and I took the opportunity to slip from his grip and dash to my room closing my door behind me. “Hailey?” Harry asked as he gently knocked on my door

“Mmhm?” I hummed as I opened my door now in a pair of pyjama shorts and a large t-shirt that slung over my shoulder. Harry walked in grabbing a hold of my waist with one hand as I tied my hair up in a messy bun.

“So beautiful” Harry hummed.
