20. Chapter 20

*8 Months Later*

(Stella’s POV)

“Baby, you almost ready?”

“Yeah! Give me 2 seconds!” I yelled down the stairs as I put the finishing touches on my makeup.

I grabbed my leather jacket as I skipped down the stairs to where my boyfriend James was waiting for me.

“We’re gonna be late for our reservation,” James said. I rolled my eyes at him and when I looked up he was glaring at me.

“I told you before, I hate it when you roll your eyes at me.”

“Sorry…” I mumbled as I opened the door. I’m not sure what was wrong with James recently. When we had first started dating 4 months ago, he had always been happy. About a month and a half ago though, he started to constantly be moody and would get mad at me about the littlest things.

“Whatever Stella. Let’s just go.” He grabbed my hand as we walked to the car. What a romantic…first he yells at me and then he holds my hand.

(Harry’s POV)

“Harry, will you please stop fidgeting? I’m trying to sleep,” Zayn said from the seat next to mine in the van.

“Uh, yeah, sorry man.”

Louis suddenly popped his head over our seat from where he was sitting behind us. “He’s just nervous cause we’re back in Chicago, mate. LEAVE THE BOY ALONE!”

I pushed Louis’ head back so that he was sitting in his seat again before I turned around. “What are you even talking about.”

“Like we all don’t know you’re hoping to see Stella again.”

“Huh? I haven’t even been thinking about her mate.”

With that, all four of the boys started cracking up. “What? Why are you guys laughing?” All of the sudden I was extremely self-conscious.

“Mate? You’ve been mumbling Stella’s name every time you’ve fallen asleep for the past week since you found out we were heading back to Chicago,” Liam said in between laughs.

I immediately blushed and tried to think of a witty comeback but my mind was drawing blanks.

“The poor boy can’t deny his love any longer!” Louis shouted dramatically. 

I laughed along with the boys to cover up my embarrassment. Finally the laughing died down and then Niall spoke up.

“Are you gonna text her?”

“Uh, I don’t know. Is it even a good idea to meet up with her again you think?”

“Of course it’s a great idea! Do you want me to call up Stella Bella myself?” Louis asked.

“That’s the last thing I need you doing, Lou.” I said as we pulled up to the hotel. “Maybe I’ll wait to contact her until tomorrow. Why don’t we just grab some dinner and have a boys night tonight instead.”

“Aw, a boys night lads! Did you hear that?!” Louis said as he crawled over the seat dividing him from the rest of the boys.

(Stella’s POV)

Dinner wasn’t going exactly as planned. James was still in a horrible mood and every time I said something to lighten the situation, he seemed to just get angrier with me.

“Will you at least tell me why you’re so angry with me? I don’t even know what I did.”

“That’s exactly the problem Stella. You have no idea how annoying you can be sometimes.”

“Excuse me? Don’t you think what you’re saying is a tad bit rude?”

“Not if it’s the truth.”

 I didn’t deserve to be treated this way. I stood up from my seat and grabbed my purse.

“Where do you think you’re going?”

“I’m leaving because you’re clearly in a bad mood.”

“No you’re not.”

“Uh…Yes I am.” Before I could take a step away, James reached forward and grabbed my wrist. “Let. Me. Go.” I said between clenched teeth. I was trying my best to keep my anger down but it wasn’t working.

James squeezed harder on my wrist to the point that it was actually hurting me. I knew a bruise was going to form just like it had last time he had done this.

“James, if you don’t let go of me in 3 seconds I’m going to scream as loud as I can.” I could feel the tears building up behind my eyes as I said this to him.The anger in James’ eyes were evident but he finally let me go.

I turned on my heels and walked away from the table but I couldn’t help the tears that fell down my face. By the time I reached the door, I was full out sobbing.

(Harry’s POV)

“Right, like you’ve never done anything stupid before,” I laughed as I threw a piece of my food at Louis while he told an embarrassing story of me.

We continued eating our meal when all of the sudden I heard Liam mumble under his breath, ” Holy Shit.”


“Stella!” he said at the same time that he pointed to the front of the restaurant where I could just make our a crying Stella leaving the restaurant in a hurry.

I didn’t even think before I grabbed my jacket from my seat and ran after her.
