I sat myself on Harry's sofa and pulled out my phone. "You have a twitter?" Harry asked and sat next to me a bit to close. "No" I said and scooted away Harry groaned and got up. I spun around and followed him with my eyes "Where are you going?" I asked and started to stand up "Taking you home" he said his face had the same expression as earlier like he was hurt and needed someone I continued to stare at him and then he opened the door, "No Harry I don't want to leave." I jumped up and ran to his side, "Please Harry just come on we can watch a movie or something" I pulled on his arm pulling at the sleeve of his hoodie. He looked at me his tall figure towering over me making me feel small and helpless. He tilted his head and his expression softened. I felt his soft hand meet my cheek and his thumb traced my lower lip. "Let's go" he said glumly and then turned to walk out the door, I felt so bad. All Harry wanted to do was spend some time with me but I ruined it. Yea his approach was not that amazing but the message came across just fine. I felt guilt. "C'mon Ellie" he said and held his hand out, I couldn't talk I felt so bad for him his face was so soft and upset. I turned and walked back into his flat and sat on his sofa. "Ellie come on you don't want to be here...I'm not going to force you!" he shouted as he came back into the flat. "I don't want to go Harry...I do want to be with you" I said and looked back at my knees. "I do Harry....I really do" I said and looked back up to see Harry standing in front of me. I felt the couch sink next to me and I looked over and Harry was twiddling his fingers, "Do you really want to stay?" his gaze was locked on my face waiting for some kind of response. I smiled giving him the response he needed and wanted. I carefully watched him as he revealed his dimples showing me a cheeky smile. I laughed and then he scooted closer to me and put an arm around me "You have a beautiful smile Ellie" Harry said I looked up at him in shock and he could tell because he laughed. I playfully shoved him "Guys don't say those things to me Harry." I told him in between my giggles "Really, well love you're beautiful" he said and smiled. 

I felt my cheeks get super hot and I looked away from Harry. "Oh come one Ellie you can't tell me that guys aren't swooning over you" he said sarcastically "No" I coldly said. Harry pulled me into his chest and rubbed my head "Well I'm surprised I'm not" I smiled but tried not to show to much emotion. I sat back up but he wouldn't let go of my hand. "How old are you Harry?" I asked him "19...is Ellie your full name?" I laughed "No it's a name my mum gave me when I was little" "What's you're full name?" "Elizabeth" I said and looked away "I hate it" I added Harry's strong hand pulled my face to meet his gaze. "It's just as beautiful as you" he said. I looked at him and all I could think about was my dad and my brother. That was the last thing my dad said to me before he left... 

*FLASHBACK*

"Ellie I'm leaving!" Dad yelled "Okay Daddy I'll be right there" I grabbed my purse and ran down stairs "By mum!" I said and then walked out the door. I hopped into the car and looked at my dad "Ready?" he asked I ducked my head into my purse and searched for my gift for him. I pulled out a picture frame that I decorated and it had a picture of me and him. "Elizabeth it's beautiful thank you" I blushed and looked at him "Really?" "Yea now let's go" I smiled as we pulled out of the driveway. "Are we going to the usual spot dad?" I asked him he looked at me and nodded. I loved going to the gym with my dad, he always helped me with my volleyball I mean him being a coach and all helped. We got to the gym and I jumped out of the car I trailed behind my dad as he walked into the gym "Hey Adam" I said and waved to him "Oh hey Ellie how are you?" "Great thanks do you want to have a one on one later maybe?" I asked and looked at my feet. I've had a huge crush on Adam for a while and it didn't help that he was always at the gym and so was I! "Sure...just come and find me" I nodded and caught up to my dad. I walked into the private part of the gym that we practically owned because we were here so much. I took off my sweats and then tied my hair up. I walked to the other side of the net and my dad smirked and started smacking balls at me. 

After a couple hours of my dad training me and Adam playing me, we started to pack up. "Ellie hun?" my dad asked me as I put took my knee pads off "Yea dad?" "I really don't want you seeing to practice with Adam anymore." I dropped my knee pads and turned to look at him "WHY?!" "Ellie he is bad news just please stay away" I groaned and then rolled my eyes. "FINE" I said and shoved everything into my bag I slung it om my shoulder and then wiped my lone tear. "I'll meet you in the car." My dad said and walked out. I knew that he didn't want to do that but he didn't need to do it Adam was perfect. I walked out of the back gym and to the front door, "Same time tomorrow Ellie?" I heard Adam ask from behind me "No sorry Adam." I opened the door and walked to the car. I threw my bag in the trunk and then got in the front seat. I looked over and my dad wasn't there "Dad?" I asked knowing I wasn't going to get a response. I stepped out of the car and walked around and into the gym. "Terry" I said and leaned on the front desk "Oh yea Ellie?" he responded "Have you seen my dad?" I asked him "Nope, he left just a bit before you did...oh and remind him about his 9 o'clock private tomorrow" I nodded and then left out the front door again. I heard some grunting come from the side of the gym and I followed the noise. I heard a loud bang and then I ran to the side. "Dad?" I said softly as I turned the corner. I saw his body lying on the ground against the building. "DAD!" I yelled and ran up to him. "Daddy....What happened" I said as I knelt  and pulled his head into my lap. "Elizabeth I'm fine, dad just got into a small banter." I looked at him and saw his head was bleeding "Dad this isn't small" He pulled my hand away and winced. "Ellie I want you to know that I love you" he said and then I saw the life slowly drain out of him as he spoke "HELP!" I shouted as tears ran down my cheeks "Daddy please" I said and grabbed his hand "Ellie I loved that picture frame you made me" he said trying to divert my mind from the current situation. "Dad it wasn't that good." "Don't be si-silly it was beautiful......all of yo-your projects are. It's just as beautiful as you." he said and then his eyes shut. "DAD! DAD! HELP SOMEONE!!! HELP!" I laid my head into his chest "Daddy please" I said softly. I shook him but nothing he was so cold and lifeless he was gone. "Dad I love you" 

*END FLASHBACK*

"Ellie are you okay?" I heard Harry's voice say I felt his thumb wipe away tears. I pushed his hand away and stood up. "I have to go" I said and ran out of his flat and down the street. I kept running refusing to comply with Harry's voice telling me to come back. I heard his foot steps getting louder. I stopped and put my hands to my face "Please Harry leave" I said "Elizabeth I'm not leaving just come back and tell me what's wrong" I shook my head. "NO please I can get home from here." I said and started walking again. To my surprise Harry didn't follow.
