14. A Small Argument

©Rileyes

Liam comes to pick me up at around five, and I really wish he hadn’t. I was having an amazing time with Harry. It was the first time I had ever made out with someone before-well, the first time I was okay with it. I felt my heart kick Liam out as Harry moved in. I was happy, because I wasn’t dreaming about snuggling up with him, I was actually snuggling up with him. And not in the way Liam and I did. And it surprised me when Harry didn’t try to get me to go any farther with him like I had thought he would. The more we talked and joked around the more I realized how sweet he was. His small compliments were constant and I was just so comfortable with him. With Liam it was pushed.

Plus, our cake was amazing.

As I was leaving his house he whispered in my ear, “Now I know I have to beat everyone else and get you at the second auction.”

He pecked my lips with his, and I got in Liam’s car.             

“What was that?” Liam asked looking at me strangely.

“What was what?” I ask back.

“Well, I might be mistaken, but it looked like he just kissed you.”

I smile a little bit, “Oh, that.”

“Jenna!” Liam says in an almost shout. “The point was to get him to stop liking you. Not to let him kiss you!”

“I realize I completely misjudged Harry. He is actually a really nice guy. And I don’t care anymore if he buys me or not at the auction.”

Liam looks like he is about to yell some more at me. But he just breathes in and then starts the engine.

There is a long silence and usually when this happens he starts the radio. But he never did. “So are you two dating now?”

I look at him surprised, “I don’t know.”

“How do you not know?” he smiles in an exasperated way. 

I lean back again. What is happening?

“If I were you,” Liam starts. “I would ask him. Harry’s never really been the relationship type.”

This gets to me a little. I don’t know if Liam meant it to bug me or not, but it does. Why would Liam say something like that? Like Harry was just using me. Maybe he was.

“What does that mean?” I wonder out loud.

Liam is silent for a second. “I’m just saying that in all the years that I have known Harry, he has never been in a single relationship. He’s gone on a lot of dates with a lot of girls, acts like he's interested in them, and hooks up with them, but not anything more.”

“So, what?” I ask. “I’m just another hook up?”

“Did you hook up with him?” Liam asks casually.

I don’t answer for two reasons: One, I don’t really know Liam’s definition of “hook up” and, two, I don’t have to explain myself to him. I turn on the radio full blast and the rest of the car ride is like this.

A few minutes later, we arrive at his house and we go to our separate bedrooms without saying a word to each other. I don’t believe we will have another movie night tonight. Without that, I really have nothing else to do but get ready for bed. I go to the bathroom to brush my teeth and through the door leading to Liam’s room, I hear a phone ringing. But not the ringing you hear when you get a call, the ringing you hear when you are calling someone. I hear Liam panting and metal noises and realize Liam must be riding the stationary bike in his room. He was calling someone on speaker

I decide to listen out of pure curiosity. Maybe he is calling his “secret girlfriend.”

“Hello?” a familiar voice picks up the phone.

“Hey, Harry,” Liam says.

Oh, this is going to be good.

“What’s up?” Harry asks. “How’s Jenna? Did she have fun today?”

I smile to myself.

“She’s good,” I hear Liam say as he stops cycling. “What happened between you two?”

Harry is quiet, “What do you mean? Did she tell you something?”

“No. I was just wondering because when I picked her up today you kissed her.”

“Okay?” Harry asks.

“So are you guys a couple?” Liam isn’t panting anymore.

“Well I haven’t really asked her out yet,” Harry clears his throat, “But today was really fun and I will ask her out soon probably.”

“Well, what did you guys do today?”

“Just hung out,” Harry sounds a little agitated.

“You hung out and then you kiss her randomly? You must have done something before that.”

“It’s kind of rude if I tell you,” Harry says and I smile again.

“Did you sleep with her?” Liam asks anxiously.

“What? No. We just made out a bit.”

Liam is quiet.

“Why do you care so much, man?” Harry asks after a while.

“I don’t.”

“Then why are you asking so much? Do you have feelings for her or something?” Harry asks and you can hear the laughter in his voice.

“No,” Liam says instantly. “I just care about her.”

“Well, so do I.”

I hear Liam breathe and he says, “Okay well, I will see you Monday, I guess.”

“Bye,” Harry says.

They hang up and I hear Liam collapse on his bed.

Well that was interesting.

I brush my teeth and get dressed, my mind just racing the whole time. I am about to go to sleep when there is a knock on my door.

“Come in,” I say.

Liam walks in looking a little sad, “Hey.”

“Hey,” I reply sitting up.

He sits on the foot of the bed and looks at me, “I’m sorry for being a major ass earlier.”

I smile, “It’s okay.”

“No, it’s not. I don’t know what came over me.”

“I get it. Jealousy can get the best of us sometimes,” I say jokingly, half to be funny and half curiosity to see how he responds.

He laughs, “Yeah, for sure.” It gets quiet and he says, “Want to watch a movie?”

“Sure, what movie?” I ask getting up.

“We can check Netflix.”

We go to his room and spend 30 minutes looking for a movie.

“Toy Story?” I ask at one point.

“Nah,” he responds. “I have seen that way too many times.”

We finally decide on “New Year’s Eve.” When the movie starts I put my head on his shoulder. I don’t even think about it anymore. A few minutes in, I sense him staring at me. I ignore him. And then he does something that surprises me: he lays his head on top of mine. I get butterflies in my stomach. Okay, so maybe Harry didn’t kick Liam out completely.

And yet again, I fall asleep during the movie.

***

I feel some movement around me, waking me up. I open my eyes slowly and watch as Liam closes his laptop. The movie must have just ended. I don’t say anything and close my eyes again. I feel Liam push me down a little bit so I am lying down now. I sense him lie down next to me and I feel him grab my head and set it down on his chest. He wraps his arm around me, just like it was this morning when I woke up. Next, I hear the click of the lamp and the light goes out. It is pitch black when I open my eyes. A few seconds later, I feel his warm lips kiss the top of my head and he goes to sleep.

Whoa.
