6. My dinner

"I don't have time for this." I almost shouted at my cat. She was staring at me, and for some reason I found myself talking to her. "I can't talk to cats! I swear I'm going crazy." She just sat there, staring at me. It was the same day I had told Harry I didn't want to go out with him anymore, and the guilt was really getting to me. 
"I know I shouldn't have gone out with Harry! I know that! But I can't help but feel...feel like I want to go out with him again. I kind of like him and the only reason I'm not going out with him is because of India, but he doesn't like India! Unless he did actually kiss her, but I don't think he did. Do you think he did?" Her big green eyes were following me as I paced around my room. "I mean, I had a lot of fun with him. What's so wrong about that?" 
Her eyes told me 'I beg to differ.' 
"Oh stop judging me. Can't I like a guy without being judged by my own cat!? Ugh!" 
I heard a fake cough and "If you're done screaming at your cat..."
I wiped my head around and saw Harry standing there. My cheeks immediately began to feel warm. 
"Oh...how long have you been standing there?" I asked quietly. 
"Long enough to know you do like me!" He replied, 
"Oh...so you heard...everything..." 
"I heard you say 'Can't I like a guy without being judged by my cat!?'" He responded. I chuckled at his attempt to sound like me. 
"That's all you heard?"
"Why? Was there something I shouldn't have heard?"
"Yes. Anyway, who let you in?"
"Your mother. She's quite lovely."
"Oh...thanks. So, what are you doing here?"
"I came to talk to you. Why don't you want to go out with me? I had a lot of fun last night and...And you said you did too...So I don't see why you hate fun so much...?"
I laughed a bit, "I don't hate fun, but I'm not a fan of making my best friend hate me."
"India hates you?"
"She will if she finds out you're here right now. And by the way, I know it's none of my business, but did...did you really kiss her?"
"What? She jumped me."
"Oh...right." I couldn't help but feel relieved. 
"So, are you going to tell me why you won't go out with me?"
"Nova! Time for dinner!" I heard my mum call.
"Coming!" I replied, "Sorry, maybe another time." I said, with fake disappointment that I wasn't going to tell him why I wouldn't go out with him. I had a feeling if I told him India liked him she would hate me even more then she already did.

"Tell your friend he can join us!" She added, Harry shrugged 
"I really shouldn't deprive your mother the joy of hosting a guest now should I?" Harry smirked, I fake laughed.
"Ha ha. I guess not." I was secretly happy that she invited him. I would get to spend time with him and if India asked I could say my mum invited him. I led him downstairs to the table, where my mum had put out pizza that she had clearly ordered. Bradly came down the stairs, took one look at Harry and said "You're that dude from that band."
Harry nodded and chuckled. "That would be me."
"Dude, all the girls at my school are...like in love with you."
"That is always a bonus." Harry replied coolly.
"Anyway...Let's eat...?" I suggested, they both nodded eagerly and dug in. 
I nibbled on a slice of pizza and barely finished half of it when Harry and Bradly were already on their third and going on their fourth. I heard my phone buzzing in my pocket, taking it out, I answered it. 
"Hello?"
"Hey, it's India."
"Oh...India. Hi."
"Can you come pick me up?"
"Sure...where are you?" 
"I'm...I'm at the studio."
"What? Didn't your practice end forever ago?"
"Yeah, but I can't find my car."
"Um..yeah alright, I'll be there in a few minutes."
"Thank you." 
She had sounded like she was in pain, but I didn't think anything of it.
"I have to go pick India up," I announced, 
"Let me come with you." Harry said instantly. 
"Oh...Um...Why don't you stay here? I'll be back in a few minutes." Before he could answer, I was out the door and in my car.

I pulled up to the studio parking lot, scanning it for India. I saw a figure on the ground but ignored it. As I drove around it a second time, I saw the thing on the ground had the same bag as India. My eyes widened in realization. I parked the car and ran over to her.
"India? India!?"
She groaned and I saw she had bruises, cuts and it even looked like a broken finger.
"India, who did this to you? And why are you on the ground?!" I exclaimed.
"Rebecca, after I kissed Harry. And...she threw me on the ground and I never got up."
"Here, let me help you." I said, holding her body up, I half carried, half dragged India to my car. 
"Does you mum know?" She shook her head, "Should I bring you home?" I asked, I was never good in a crisis. 
"Sure, thank you for coming to get me."
"No problem. What happened to your finger?"
She glanced down at it, then looked back up at me as I started the car. 
"I tried to run away but Rebecca pushed me down. And I fell on my hand, and that is why I was still on the ground."
"Why didn't you call me before?"
"Well...I called a couple of other people before. But that doesn't matter. Anyway, should I go to the hospital?"
"Um...You might have to see a doctor about your finger but I think you'll be alright."
"Okay..."
We didn't talk much after that. I dropped her off at her house, not really sure what to do about her finger. I hoped her mum would. Then I drove back to my house, secretly hoping Harry was still there.
When I got back, I saw Harry's car still parked in the driveway. I smiled a little to myself and walked inside.
I was surprised to see Harry and Bradly, sitting on the couch playing video games. They seemed to be getting on well, Harry saw me and paused the video game.
"Hey, what happened?" Harry asked me.
"She got beat up by one of the other dancers."
"What? Who?"
"Rebecca. But I think she will be alright."
"Okay, I'll talk to her."
"Rebecca?"
"Yeah."
"Oh, okay."
"So, can we play the video game again?" Bradly asked. Harry nodded and they started again. I chuckled and went to help clean the dishes. 
I walked into the kitchen and my mum was standing there. 
"Your friend...He's quite a charter." She commented. I laughed and nodded. 
"Yeah..." I walked over to the sink and started putting the dishes in the dishwasher. 
After I was finished, I heard Harry saying he should be going. I walked over him as he was putting his shoes on. 
"So...I'm guessing you're going to say no if I ask you out...?" He asked me.
"I don't know, maybe you should try." I replied. He started smiling, 
"Nova, will you go out with me?"
"Um...I'll think about it...I'll tell you my decision tomorrow." I said, smiling. I already knew my answer though. 
"Alright, just in case it's a no..." He leaned down and kissed me on the cheek. "At least I can say I have kissed you."
