21. Chapter 21

(Stella’s POV)

I stepped out the door and started walking in the opposite direction of my apartment. I needed some time away from James and I knew he would drive back to my apartment after he paid the bill to talk to me.

“Stella! Wait up!” I started to walk faster because I thought it was James chasing me and I didn’t want a confrontation in the streets.

“Stella!” I heard my name again but this time I could tell it wasn’t James. In fact it sounded really familiar.I stopped walking and turned around to see Harry running down the street.

“Harry?!” I couldn’t believe my eyes.

Harry finally caught up to me and bent down resting his hands on his knees as he caught his breath.

“Hi…are you okay?” He was still out of breath as he asked me how I was doing.

“I’m fine,” I said trying to push the attention away from me, ” but what are you doing here? Are you guys in Chicago for a concert?”

“We’re here for the next couple of weeks for rehearsals for various shows coming up in December. I was having dinner with the boys when I saw you crying. What’s wrong?”

“Um, it was just a misunderstanding.”

“Stella, you can tell me.”

“James and I just got in a fight and I didn’t want to be there anymore, that’s all.”

“Who is James?”


(Harry’s POV)


“Harry, I know this is awkward but-“

“When did you guys start dating?” I asked her.

“About four months ago.”

“I see.” I didn’t know what to say. I still had feelings for her but I wasn’t about to come between her and her boyfriend. A thought crept into my mind that maybe after their fight tonight they would break up but I pushed that thought aside.

We both stood there saying nothing when I heard another pair of footsteps walking up to us.

“Who the hell are you talking to Stella?”

I spun around to see a guy about my height catch up to us and then walk over to Stella. Stella’s eyes opened wide but she didn’t say anything.

“Stella? Is anybody in there? Answer me!”

“Um, this is my friend Harry.”

“And you must be James.” I said to him as we sized each other up.

“Yeah, I’m Stella’s boyfriend so I think I can take it from here.”

“Well she seemed upset so I think I should walk her home, mate.” I took a step forward to stand next to Stella but James put his hand on my chest and pushed me back.

“You’re not walking anybody but yourself home tonight.”

I looked over at Stella and I could see that she had no idea what to do.

“No, I think I’m gonna walk her home.” I said once again.

James took a step forward and Stella put her hand on his chest to hold him back. My eyes went to her hand and then I noticed a bruise around her wrist. I stared at it for a second and realized that I could see the faint outline of where a hand had been.

My hands formed fists as I tried to stay calm. I can’t believe this idiot put his hands on Stella.

Stella interrupted my thoughts, “You guys, lets just walk away from the situation.” She started pulling on James’ arm to take him away from me.

Finally James gave in to her pulling and they started walking back in the direction of the restaurant. I stared at them in shock as they walked away. Why was she going with him when he was clearly hurting her?

Stella glanced over her shoulder at me and I could see the sadness in her eyes. She faced forward again and turned a corner and left me standing alone on the street.

If Stella thought I was going to let this guy get away with hurting her, she was absolutely wrong.
