25. Chapter 25

(Stella’s POV)

I started walking towards the direction of James’ room, still unsure of what I wanted to even say to him. I finally found his room and knocked on the door.

“Come in,” I heard a muffled voice say through the door.

I opened the door and it took me a second or two to get over the shock of what I saw. James was in the bed with a sling over his right shoulder, bandages over his nose, and was covered in bruises and small cuts.

“Oh…my gosh,” was all I managed to say.I slowly made my way over to the chair beside the bed and sat down.

“How are you feeling?” I asked.

“Like shit thanks to your little British friend. Speaking of, I don’t want you ever to speak to him again.”

“Excuse me?”

“You heard me.”

“Look, I know you’re not in the best frame of mind right now so maybe we can talk about this later.”

“No, we can talk about this now and what I say goes.”

I don’t know when he decided he could make decisions for me, but he was completely out of line.

“James, I’m sorry that the timing isn’t right and that you’re hurt and in the hospital but…you can’t control me like this. You’ve been angry at me for weeks now with no justification and I’m sick of it. I think it’s best if we call it quits.”

James started saying rude things to me about how I would never find someone better than him and that no guy would want me, but I tuned it all out as I walked to the door and closed it behind me with no regrets.

(Harry’s POV)

I glanced at the clock for the hundredth time in the past ten minutes. I wasn’t sure how long Stella was going to be talking to James but I needed to remind myself that she was dating him and not me so she could take as long as she wanted.

Next thing I knew, Stella sat down in the chair next to me.

“Well, that was fun.” Stella said, as she breathed out slowly.

That wasn’t what I was expecting Stella to say to me. To be honest, I thought she was going to come out screaming and be mad at me for hurting James.I turned to her before talking.

“So you, um, talked to James then?”

“I did…”

“And it was fun?” I said at the same time that Stella said, “and I broke it off with him.” 

We stared at each other for a couple of seconds before I realized what she said.

“You broke up with him?!”

Stella smiled shyly as she nodded her head in agreement.

“Not gonna lie, I did not see that one coming,” I said as I smiled back at her.

Stella laughed before responding. “Neither did I to be honest, but I figured there was no use pretending anymore that what James and I had was healthy.”

Stella suddenly stood up and stuck her hand out for me to grab. “Come on Harry, lets get you home and put some ice on that eye of yours.”

Instead of standing up, I grabbed her hand and pulled on it so she ended up in my lap. Stella giggled and for the first time in 8 months, I felt fully relaxed. I knew it was probably too quick since she just broke up with her boyfriend but I put my hands on her face and pulled her in for a kiss anyways.It was like no time had passed between us as I kissed her.

We finally pulled apart but our foreheads remained touching.

“Harry, I could stay here all night kissing you but unless you want your eye to be swollen in the morning we really need to get you some ice.”

“Babe, I’m willing to have a swollen eye then.”

Stella laughed and then leaned forward so that our lips were barely touching.

“As cute as it is that you’re willing to have a swollen eye so we can kiss, how about you just take a rain check on it,” she said and then kissed me quickly.


With that, Stella stood up pulling me with her and we walked out the hospital doors hand in hand.
