When Harry met Lexi

Can guys be friends with girls without the sex and attraction get in the way? Is it possible? I am Lexi Edwards and i am about to find out.


8. The truth comes out

Time really flies when your moping around and having mixed feelings about well everything also speeds the process up. In literally a blink of an eye it was already one and Harry was waiting at the door with a dozen of red roses waiting for an explanation to my refusal of answering calls and text messages.

“Hey love!” Harry said portraying his dimples.

“Hi lovely!” I say returning the smile.

“Why are you acting so strangely?”

“You don’t miss a beat do you?” I ask as a small laugh escapes my lips.

“Not at all.”

“We are going to go visit my brother.” I simply state.

“If he gets you so upset why do you visit him?”

“I love seeing my twin, the place where he lives not so much.”

“Where’s that?”

“Wait and see.”

In thirty minutes we make it to the institute and with each second I saw Harry’s understanding expression of the present situation.

“You don’t fully understand.” I say before he has the chance to voice his sympathy. “I was treated here too. Don’t worry I am not crazy but my parents thought I was. When I was a little girl I used to have an imaginary best friend and my brother he has schizophrenia. My parents came to the conclusion that I must be too. So they sent both of us here. It was horrible, they tested medicine on us which made you dizzy and sick to the stomach. Finally a new doctor came to facility and who showed everyone that I was in deed not crazy just going through the phase of imaginary friends. I was stuck here for 6 years Harry. Six.”


“Yeah the other six years of therapy helped overcome the emotional stress of being here.”

“Lexi I am so sorry. Do you want me here? I could wait in the car or something like that?” He asked his eyes pleading for me to let him go with.

“NO I want you to come with me, I want you to meet my brother. He’s taking medication which help him with the illness so he’s the same as he was.”

“Of course Lexi I would be delighted to meet him!” he said with a smile.

“Let’s go then don’t want to keep them waiting.” I grab the small bag filled with bubblegum and Harry the roses. Our free hands were intertwined making me feel much safer when entering my nightmare.

“Hi I am Alexia Edwards I am here to see my brother Stephan Edwards.” I tell the front desk.

“Of course, sign in right here. He is currently outside so third door, second hallway.” I nod while signing my name.

As Harry was singing his, I hear my name being called: “Lexi! It’s such a pleasure seeing you here again!”

I turn around and see the familiar face of Dr. Shepard.

“Hello Dr. Shepard! How’s it going?” I ask the elderly man with a cane coming towards me and Harry.

“I’ve been doing great! How about you? I see you’ve brought a friend to visit Stephan.” He said nodding towards Harry.

“I have also been fantastic. This is Harry.” Who in turn shook Dr. Shepard’s hand and they both exchanged brief greetings.

“How is Stephan? Doing better?”

“He is doing absolutely beautifully! The new medication is helping him greatly! I think he might even be able to visit family outside of the institute in a month or so.” The doctor replied with a big smile.

“I am so happy to hear that!” I say jumping up and down with joy. My brother might finally get to leave this hell hole! Finally!

“Well I won’t keep you waiting, go visit your brother and I will see you soon.” He gave me a brief hug and continued walking down the hall.

“That’s the man who saved me.” I whisper to Harry who tightened his grip on my hand.

“Do you think your brother will like me?” HE asked carefully.

“OH yes, of course! He’s a very happy and welcoming person.”

We walk out into the back field and even from here I could see his golden brown hair. HE was sitting underneath a big willow tree reading. How I missed him.

“Stephan!” I yell and then wave when he looks up. As soon as he saw me he stood up and ran towards me leaving his book in his place.

“Lexi!” Before I knew it his arms were around and we were spinning in circles. “I’ve missed you!”

“I’ve missed you to Steph. Look this is my friend Harry, he really wanted to meet you.”

“Hello, my name is Stephan.” My brother said stretching out his hand to harry.

“I am harry.” He replied with a smile. “Lexi told me you like roses..” he trailed on handing them to Stephan. His eyes widened with glee.

“She told you correctly.”

“Steph I brought you something else as well”, I say pulling out the bag with bubblegum from behind my back.

“Bubblegum!” he squealed. “Thank you Lexi! I love bubblegum!” he informs Harry.

“Do you really? I thought I was the only one.” HE said smiling.

“NO I do too! Here have one. Lexi I really like this boy.” He tells me making both of us grin from ear to ear.

“I am so happy that you do Stephan! I like him too.” I tell my brother while linking arms with both boys.

“Come I’ll show you the book I’m reading.” Stephan exclaimed leading us to the spot he was at before we came.

“I appreciate you letting me into your life this far.” Harry whispered into my ear.

“I love you remember.” I whisper back.
