Take Care

**Sequel to What Humans Do**
It's been seven years since the day I told Harry Styles we had to break up because our publicity stunt was now over. He told me to wait till I was 26, then we could get back together and be happy. So, I waited. I waited until I got a phone call the day after my 26th birthday from Harry, inviting me to a wedding. HIS wedding, to be exact. I knew I had to get Harry back. I'm not going to let seven years of waiting be wasted. I needed him back. And so the plotting began.


2. I Need Your Love

*Song of the chapter: I Need Your Love- Ellie Goulding ft. Calvin Harris

"Really? That's... Um, well that's just great! I'm happy for you! Of course I'll go to the wedding! Yeah, I'm just gonna go and pack now, okay? Do you already have my plane ticket?" I asked trying to hold back the tears.

"Yeah, I mailed it to you. Go check your mail box and it'll be there. I'll see you at the airport! I can't wait! I've missed you!" Harry said, sounding so happy.

I could feel the tears starting to slip down my face. "Yeah, me too. I gotta go though, I'll see you later. Bye, Harry." and I hung up, not waiting for a response because I knew I would sob if I got one.

The moment I hung up I dropped my hand down to my side with my phone and stared blankly ahead of me. I was numb with the heart break and I didn't know how to do anything other than stand there, frozen. Seven years. Gone. I could've moved on. I could've been in Darcy's place. Or Kaylyn. Or Madelyn and Lauryn. But I was here. Numb to the core, silently crying over a boy who I loved that just invited me to his wedding.

My phone started to vibrate and I looked down at it, breathing for the first time in what felt like forever. It was a text from Harry that said 'So excited for two days from now! Missed you so much Rue-Boo!' That's when I began to uncontrollably sob. Rue-Boo was something he called me when we were dating and he was the only one allowed to call me that. Everytime someone tried, he'd get angry.

'Yeah, I'm excited, too. I've missed you, too.' is what I sent him back. I knew I had to get him back. How? No idea. I couldn't act like this was having any effect on me infront of him.

I stood there for another fifteen minutes wallowing in my own self misery with my head in my hands, crying. I had to pull myself together. 'Damn it, Rue. You're 26. Not 19, anymore. He moved on. Get over it. You find someone new.' I repeated to myself.

I went to my room and start paking a gym bag for me to go to the gym. I just needed to get out and do something. In this case, practice. I put on my leotard and gym shorts and threw my water bottle, practice shoes, hoodie, jeans, and a shirt in my bag. I grabbed my keys along with my bag and headed downstairs to my Jeep Grand Cherokee.

The ride to the gym was relativly short, probably because my thoughts were on what I was going to do. The moment I pulled up to the gym, I hopped out of my car and ran inside. I smilied to everyone, pretending nothing was wrong.

"Rue! Hey! What are you doing here?" called Ben. Ben Walker was a guy I had met when they were training people for the 2016 Olympics. He was about a year older than me and I think he's gay. He never told me if he was or not, I just kind of assumed. I know you should never do that, but he was a 28 year old male who expressed no interest in women, loved shopping, he was like my Darcy replacment. I talked to him when I was upset, happy, any mood really. He was my closest male friend and basically the only guy I really trusted.

"Hey, Ben. I just got bored so I decided I'd come here." I lied.

I knew he'd catch onto my lie, I just didn't know that he'd catch it as soon as it slipped out. "Liar. Now, tell Benny what's wrong!" He said, giving me the puppy face.

"I'll tell you later. I'm going to go practice the beam. Want to come with?" He nodded his head and we began to walk over to the beam in silence.

"By 'later' so you really mean 'later' or really 'never'?" Ben asked me when we reached our destination. He knew all about Harry. He even knew that it was just a stunt. Only him, Darcy, Louis, and Petar knew. No one else.

I sighed and started feeling the depression take me over. "It's Harry. He's getting married. And invited me to his wedding. I waited seven years for him. Rue Rotar, the one everyone knew would never marry, fell in love with a boy and wanted to marry him. Now she's going to his wedding. Great, huh?"

He gave me the look of pity and dissapointment. "Don't look at me like that, Ben. I'll be fine. I just need to break them up and get him back. That's all."

"Rue. You can't do that."

"Don't tell me what to do."

"You know it's wrong. If he's happy then why would you do that? He wouldn't do that to you, and you know it."

"Because, Ben! We said at 26 that we'd get back together! Well, we're both 26 now. I need him back. I'm tired of being alone and being misrable with my cat."

He shook his head a little bit. "You know that that deal was only if you two were single. He's getting married. And to me, it sounds like you're making yourself misrable. You aren't letting yourself move on because of this damn deal! You can easily get a boyfriend or whatever you want! Why do you wait, Rue?"

"I don't know! But I'm getting him back! And you're going to help me!"

His dissaproving face turned into shock and confusion. "Oh no. No, no, no! I will have no part in this!"

I started smiling. "Yes, you are! Please, Benny!" I asked him, giving him my best 'Rue face' which is just where I make my eyes big and sad looking. He turns to putty in my hands when I do that.

"Fine, I guess I will. Now, we will talk about this later because half the gym is looking at us. I think we were talking a little louder than normal?"

I turned and looked at the rest of the gym. Indeed, half of them were sending us questioning glances. I turned back to face Ben and started smiling and laughing. "Maybe, just a tad?" I said in between laughs.

"Come on, Rue." He said.

We both sat down and started our simple stretching. I don't know what I'd do without Ben.
