Truly, Madly Deeply

'I hate you Harry Styles...'

26. Ablaze

Harry's P.O.V

What have I done? My thoughts had slowed to a stop. I didn't even run after her. I didn't fight for her, I just let her run. Lightning and thunder rolled cross the sky, jerking me out of my trance. The sound of rain filled my ears.

I love her. Ellie, I mean. I did what I did to protect her. Something had happened between me and Hallie at the start of the school. Nothing complicated, just meeting up in each other's room at night. I felt nothing when I did it with her. Blank. But when I moved in with Ellie, everything changed. I started feeling something. For her. Just being with her, even arguing with her seemed to make me happier than I ever was with Hallie.

But then the Hallie's blackmail started. I resisted it, but my feelings for Ellie were increasing. And the more I cared for her. the bigger the threats got, and the more scared I got for her. That afteroon, when she cornered me in the stage. I didn't want to hurt her. I didn't want her to find out what we had done, before me and her had started anything. I didn't want to make her feel broken. But what I had done in fact, was  break her even more. And I didn't know whether she was beyond repair.

I heard the door open. And then a strangled whimper.

'Ellie? Ellie.' I leapt off the bed, and I was met with silence. Suddenly there was a loud clanging of keys and the doorknob rattling.

'No! Ellie don't go, let me explain.' I ran to the door, and I was met with a tear stained and driping wet Ellie, who was already halfway back out the door. As soon as I appeared in the corridor her head snapped up. And her expression was one I will never forget. She looked at me with sadness, anger, betrayal. But the look in her eyes, was scared. She was scared of me.


Ellie's P.O.V

I looked up at him, hardly believing he had the nerve to talk to me. It had hardly been a few hours, and suddenly he wanted us to become closer the friends again? I had hoped to find the room empty. I was tired, I wanted to sleep. But I couldn't sleep with him in there.

He held out his hand, as if he expected me to grab it.

'No.' I told him. And I left. I ran, my bag thumping on my thigh as I took the most familiar path down the school hallway. I faintly heard footsteps behind me, but I just ran faster. I was looking at the floor, focusing on controlling my tears, compelling them to not fall. I collided with something solid.

I looked up at my obstacle. It was Hallie. I swallowed just about everything I was feeling, ducked my head and tried to walk around her.

"Um, where do you think you're going? She stuck her arm out to prevent me from going anywhere. 'Look, you can listen to me now, bitch.'

I swallowed, and tried not to inhale her sickly scent.

'Thought I'd just let you know that that wasn't the first time our clothes had come off. And we have gotten a lot further along the bases than you ever will. And guess what, this was happening when you two were 'together.'

Her fingers were bobbing up and down like bunny's ears as she said the word together. And then I lost it.

I threw myself at her, pulling at her hair and punching her stomach. I was so much stronger than her, and for once I had the upper power over her. I landed punch after punch into her stomach, and her face. I wanted to mess it up. Uncover what was underneath all that makeup.

And suddenly a pair of arms pulled me away. I turned to see who the interferer was and I jerked my arm away in disgust.

'Don't ever touch me again.' I growled.

Hallie groaned on the floor, and struggled to sit up. Harry rushed over to help her up, which Hallie welcomed with a smile.

'Geez Ellie what did you do?'

'Well of course you would fucking stick up for her.'

'Ellie I--'

'No don't you fucking tell me there was nothing going on between you two, and don't even think of trying to come up with an excuse. I am never going to be able to trust you again.'

He was silent. And so was she. And then with a force I didn't think possible coming from a half bruised slut, she forcefully dragged Harry down and smashed her lips against his.

I looked away. 'Well I hope you two are really happy together.' I whispered. I picked up my bag from the floor and continued down the path, wiping the tears as they fell.


I knocked on the door, hard and impatient. 

'Ellie? What are you doing here?'

'Please Mikaela, I need somewhere to stay, I'm not sleeping anywhere near that fuckwit.'

'Ellie. What's wrong.' She gasped. 'And why are your knuckles all bloody?'

I sighed. I regret punching her up now. The consequences I would have to face. i would probably be kicked out of the school.

'Please Kayla, just for tonight. Please.'

She wrapped her arms around me, and I was suddenly sobbing. The walls I tried to build had crashed, and I let go of everything, my feelings, anger, sadness, betrayal were being flushed out by my tears.

'Liam's here by the way.' She said quietly as I hiccuped. She lead me to the couch.

'What happened El?' Liam asked, concerned.

'H-Harry and Halli-e. Cheating..' It was all I could muster.

She gasped. 'Ellie! But whaa-'

'No, please, later.' I needed to sleep.

'Well tell me more in the morning El?' She asked.

I nodded, and I crashed on the couch. I couldn't stay awake any longer, and I let sleep take me away.
