Our Complicated Harmony

Makenzie is dragged to a party in England by her rich best friend, Hailey. While she's there, she meets a certain British popstar of whom seems pretty interested in her. A few shots and an overnight stay later, and they wake up half nude in the same bed. Though they can't remember much of anything, he is convinced that they slept together. So what now? (Things may become graphic at certain points in the story.)


8. Letters

Tears streamed down Harry's face. He dropped the letter and walked over to the wall nearest him. He let out a frustrated, angry cry and punched a hole into the drywall surface. "God damn it!" He said with a start. "All of it!"
The boys were busily exchanging letters and reading each others. Makenzie had given none of the boys an address, phone number, or any way to contact her. In Niall's letter, she wrote, "Hailey won't know anything either, so don't pester her about it." Everyone was shocked beyond words. They took turns talking to and comforting Harry, and They ordered food to eat. Niall invited Hailey, who had also received a letter, to come over as we'll.
When Hailey arrived she had her letter in one hand, and a bottle of Jack in the other. Her face was flushed and her eyes had grown red and puffy as a result of crying so hard. When she walked through the doorway, Niall immediately stood and jogged the few feet to her. "It's alright Hails" He whispered, putting his hands on the sides of her face and kissing her forehead.
"She was my best friend," She whimpered, biting her lip to hold back a new stream of tears. She did so unsuccessfully and burst into tears.
"Shhhh, babe. It's okay Hailey. Shhh," he pulled her beanie from her head of curly brunette locks, and put his cheek to her head, hugging her and holding her tightly.
When she was calm enough she kissed Niall's cheek and gently motioned for him to release her. Niall did so without question and Hailey walked over to Harry, gathering him in a warm embrace. "I'm s-so sorry," she said, "I should have known she'd d-do this." Harry hugged her back and then they sat side by side on the floor with everyone else.
They sat in deafening silence and passed Hailey's Jack around the living room until the food came. They ate, Niall eating the most, meanwhile trying to keep the mood light doing so. and most of them fell asleep rather quickly, leaving Harry and Hailey awake.
"How're are we going to get her back?" Harry asked, "We have no idea where she is. What if she finds someone else?"
"Well, Harry, I see two options here," She said, "We can go to America, and see her parents to ask if they know where she is, or we can leave it alone and see if she contacts one of us first."
Harry shook his head, "Parents it is then," he said "We'll leave tomorrow night." He looked at Hailey a little helplessly. "We need to get her back. You and I especially. She's your best friend, and I love her Hailey. I can't let her go."
Hailey nodded and patted Harry's shoulder. "I know Harry. We'll find her of course. You and I," Hailey slowly stood and walked over to the couch where Niall was asleep, "But for now, go get some sleep." She laid down next to Niall and snuggled close, quickly falling asleep.
Harry stood for a moment, watching them breathing and being together on the couch and smiled a bit. He would get Makenzie back. He just had to.
I woke up the next morning entangled in Niall's arms. We were both facing the living room, so I turned around, facing Niall, who was still sleeping. I put my hand on the side of his face and kissed his nose. "What are we going to do?" I put my hand in my back pocket, which kept the letter. I hadn't let any of the boys read it because Makenzie had asked me not to. They were too busy sorting things out with Harry to notice.
You see, she had deliberately failed to mention to them that she had attached to my letter, a purple sticky note with a new phone number on it. There was also a note on it. It read:
As my best friend, I need you to keep this a secret. Tell no one, put it under a different name in your phone, and burn this note.
I was, at first, planning on telling them right away, but it wouldn't do any good. I would just wait to get enough information to pay her a visit.
Until then, going to the U.S. and trying to find her on our own was our best bet. I kissed Niall's cheek and his eyes slowly fluttered open and he smiled at me. "Sorry to wake you, but we need to go get packed to go to the U.S."
When I said this, Niall's smile faltered a little. "Okay. Lets go," he said.
"Just let me use the bathroom really quickly." I kissed Niall before he pulled his arms away from me and I got up to go to the bathroom.
I dialed the number quickly and pressed send, hearing the rings four times before...
"Hello?" Makenzie asked sleepily.
"God damn you. Makenzie, how can you do this to me? And not let me tell them?! They need to know. Harry needs to know. He didn't deserve this." I sighed and shook my head.
"...I'm sorry. They don't need me. I'm only hurting them by being there, and if you tell them about this and you figure out where I am, they'll come find me. It's better this way," Makenzie said.
"And what about Niall Makenzie?" I hissed, "He'a my boyfriend for God's sake! I can't just keep this from him!"
"Yes you can Hailey, and you will," she said. "You need to. He'll tell the others and you know it."
"They deserve answers!" I said. "They deserve more than this selfish act you've layed out for them, and you know that. You're better than this Makenzie. I know how you felt about Harry, and you know perfectly well how he felt about you. Makenzie, I've never seen you as happy as with him the first couple of weeks. He loves you. He's ready to search to the ends of the earth for you. He's so afraid someone's gonna take you from him Kenz."
Makenzie sobbed on the other end. "It's so screwed up Hailey. I messed up. I should've left right away. I'll only hurt him. Don't you remember all of the other guys I was with? They get close and I push them away. I can't do that to him Hailey. He's the only one I've ever loved."
I heard a scream in the background and Kenzie muttered "Gotta go," before the line went dead.
"Damn it!" I said, throwing my phone at the wall and slipping to the floor. Niall opened the door just then, and sat on the floor with me, taking me in his arms.
"It's okay Hails. We'll find her." He whispered. "In the meantime, let's go get breakfast and pack. I'm starving."
I giggled and we left the apartment to do just that, thoughts of Makenzie still bouncing around in my mind.
I just hoped she was okay.
