13. A Drop In The Ocean

"Rhiannon. Who told you that?" He asked.

"Who do you think?" I asked.

"Emeli?"

"Yes."

"Why would you listen to her?" I could tell her was getting angrier.

"I don't know, I just-"

"No Rhiannon. I didn't say it. Please just listen to me."

I don't see why I listened to Emeli in the first place. She did just show up at my house and try to fight me. Maybe Zayn was telling me the truth.

"I believe you." I said.

"Good. Look Rhiannon. I have to go," He said. "I'll call you later."

"Bye," I said hanging up the phone.

 

*Zayn's POV*

I put my phone down on the kitchen table, there was a knock at the door. I walked to the door and opened it to see Harry standing there. Me and him haven't talked since he walked in on me and Rhiannon a while ago. What was he doing here? He walked inside and sat down on my black leather couch. 

"Zayn. Look I know you've been seeing Rhiannon," He said. My face turned bright red. What did he know? Maybe he meant on the friend basis.

"What do you mean?" I asked.

"I know you love her. I know she loves you. Whenever someone says your name her eyes just light up. That doesn't happen with me," He said cracking a tear.

I sat down beside him and gave him a hug. I felt horrible now. He was one of my best friends. I can't believe I got so caught up with Rhiannon. Especially when I knew they were happy together.

"Thats no true. I know she loves you Harry. More than she loves me without a shout of a doubt." He just looked at me. He didn't say anything. He looked broken to many pieces on the inside. 

"I won't talk to her anymore," I said. I knew I was going to kick myself for saying this but if it made Harry happy, I'd be happy. This was what needed to be done. 

"I can't ask you to do that," He said. "Just take her." He was crying even more now. 

"I don't want her," I said. It was a lie. I did but I couldn't have her under these circumstances.

"I don't want her anymore either. Its not worth everything with her," He said. "If she loved me, she wouldn't have cheated on me."

I just nodded. I grabbed my phone and deleted her number. I deleted the pictures of us. I deleted everything. Soon the memories would be gone. She had just been stringing both of us along the whole time. But the sick thing is, I was okay with it.

Soon Harry did the same as I did, deleting everything. She was both fading from our memories more and more every second. I just hope I made the right decision.

"Thanks for sticking around with me Harry," I said.

"What do you mean?" He asked me laughing.

"I mean I took your girl and we're still friends."

"True. I mean we have to be. We're kinda in a band, remember" He said grinning.

He got up from the couch and walked out the front door and out to his car. I couldn't help but think about Rhiannon. This whole forgetting her thing wasn't going to work.

 

*Harry's POV*

I still wanted Rhiannon but it hurt my pride to much to admit it. She didn't love me. I just needed to face it. I would eventually get over it, or at least I'd hope so. I mean I'd been in love with her for practically my whole life.

I drove back to my house and walked inside and sat on the couch. I turned on the radio and a song came on. A song that made memories come flooding back through my mind.

"A drop in the ocean, 

A change in the weather,

I was praying that you and me might end up together,

Its like wishing for rain as I stand in the desert,

But I'm holding you closer than most,

Cause you are my Heaven."

*A Year Ago*

Rhiannon and I were sitting on the beach, gazing up at the stars. We had this special place on the beach outside of this cave we went to as kids. We came out here almost every Saturday. We would get a towel and lie there and talk about everything we could think of.

"Harry? Where do you see us in the future?" She asked.

"Well. I want a family. I want to get married. And I want a girl called Darcy." I said smiling at her.

"You want that with me?" She asked.

"Of course Rhiannon. I love you more than this world. I can't wait to have you as my wife."

"How are you so sure of me? We're only 17."

"I've loved you since I first laid eyes on you. I'm sure you are the only one for me."

She leaned in and kissed me. It was the closest I think I have ever felt to her. I knew how much she loved me.

"I love you Harry."

"I love you too baby."

Who knows what the future has in store for us, but I know she is in my future. She has to be.

 

*6 Months Ago*

I remember this night so clearly. Mainly because I thought I'd lost the love of my life. Rhiannon and I had got in a huge fight over me texting one of my friends called Alissa. I tried to explain how she meant nothing to me more than her being a friend, but Rhiannon didn't listen. She pushed me out of her apartment and slammed the door in my face. I took the long way out of the building, and out to my car.

It was pouring rain outside. It always rains here. I walked out from the building to my car, getting soaking wet. I just had the feeling that I needed to turn around and thats when I saw Rhiannon running towards me in shorts and a tank top. She looked so beautiful. Even when she was soaked from the rain.

She jumped up to me and wrapped her arms around my neck and kissed me. I held her close to me and didn't want to go. She grabbed my hand and drug me back up to her apartment kissing me again. 

"I'm sorry Harry. I know she is just a friend," She whispered. "I overreacted."

"Its fine. Just promise me you won't leave."

"I promise."

 

*Present Time*

I sat on the couch in a trance. I couldn't move, I couldn't speak, I couldn't feel. What had I done letting her go? I should've never taken this ring back from her. What the hell was I thinking. Did I not just realize that she started fights over nothing and just thought she could apologize and it would be okay? I have to move on. No matter what it takes.

 

*Rhiannon's POV*

I sat in the living room of my apartment facing out towards the window. I pulled up a chair and got my guitar from its case. It was pouring down rain outside. I couldn't help but think of Harry. I just didn't feel right knowing I didn't have him. I strummed a song that brought back what seemed like a million memories with him.

"Oh-Oh, Oh-Oh,

Be my baby,

Oh-Oh, Oh-Oh,

Oh-Oh, Oh-Oh,

Be my baby,

I look after you."

 

*Zayn's POV*

It killed me to see the hurt in Harry's eyes earlier today. And the worst part was, I knew that I caused him that pain. I knew I was trying to do the right thing for Harry but it was killing me slowly. I walked over to my mini bar and poured me a glass of scotch. I downed it and poured another. After my 3rd cup, I just drank from the bottle.

I walked into my room and saw the picture of me and Rhiannon on my dresser. Everytime I looked at it, my heart broke more and more. I opened up the window, picked up the picture, and threw it outside to hear it shatter on the ground.

I dropped to the ground and cried. I couldn't hold in the tears anymore. As time goes on, I hope this gets better. Maybe forgetting her will be easier than I think.

 

*Rhiannon's POV*

I placed my guitar back in its case and pulled my phone out of my pocket to ring Harry. It rang until a deep raspy voice answered on the other line.

"Hello?" He asked.

"Harry," I whispered.

"Who is this?" He asked.

Who is this? He had my number. Did he delete it? Or did he just not want to talk to me? 

"Rhiannon..." I said.

There was a click and the phone line was cut. He hung up the phone. I guess that answers my question. He didn't want me anymore.

I dialed another familiar number. Zayn's. He answered the phone almost immediately. 

"Hello?" He asked. "Who is this?"

What the hell was going on? Did they both really delete my number?

"It's Rhiannon," I said.

"I just w-w-ant you to know one t-thing," He stuttered. 

"Which is?"

"You have done nothing but ruin my life. Can't you see I don't want you?" He said hanging up the phone. 

I dropped the phone. Had he really just said that? Tears filled my eyes, but I wasn't going to cry. He wasn't worth my tears. It was time for all of us to move on. And by all of us I mean me, cause it seems Harry and Zayn already did.

I opened my door to get some fresh air, and as soon as I did there she stood. Emeli.

"What do you want now?" I asked hatefully.

"I came to apologize." She said. "You know you are my best friend. Its been that way forever. Please  don't loose that." 

"Come inside," I said grabbing her hand. 

"I don't know what I was thinking Rhiannon. I should have never done-"

"Shhh," I said pulling her into a hug. "It's okay. Everything is okay. I'm not mad."

She looked at me with a strange look. "Really?" 

"Yes. Really? Now are you ready to listen? Because I have a lot to tell you." I said.
