Wanted You More

Bethany is top in her class, head-strong, and basically you're definition of a perfect girl but she has no intention of trying to be like every other girl and try to get Harry, the popular, good looking, soccer star, to like her...in fact, she doesn't really like him. But when Bethany is assigned to help Harry get his grades up and he realizes that Bethany is different than everyone else, will Bethany cave into giving Harry a chance or will she continue to stick to her idea that he is a spoiled, stuck up ass?

Includes sex, drugs, alcohol, self harm references/actions, and cursing.


23. Feelings


Wednesday, at school, I got a text from my boss saying I wasn’t needed today. That was probably a good thing because I had to wear a short sleeved shirt and I had new scars on my wrists. After what had happened with Harry the past couple days, I needed some form of escape and my old habits came flooding back; the habits I swore off for my dad…

I was trying to avoid Harry at all costs. I didn’t want him to see me. The last thing I wanted was for him to think that after what had happened that we were actually on talking terms. Just because I let him hold my hand, didn’t mean I liked him.

“Bethany?” My head snapped up and I saw Liam standing over me. I groaned, rubbing my eyes. “Long day?”

“You have no idea…” I grumbled. “How much longer do I have until study period is over?”

“About ten more minutes…you must’ve been pretty out of it. I’ve been sitting here for about ten minutes and you haven’t flinched once.”

“I didn’t sleep well last night.” I whispered, trying to wake up.

“That’s not good…”

“Yeah well…”

“What were you doing all night?”

“I had a lot on my mind…”

“Your dad?” Liam asked, lowering his voice. I shrugged than nodded slowly. “What happened?” I lifted my sleeves just enough for Liam to see what I had done. His face fell and he looked at me, hurt filled his eyes. “Bethany…”

“I’m sorry Liam…I know you watched me swear it off to him but I had no idea what to do…this week has been crazy…”

“How so?” I opened my mouth, but no words came out. I couldn’t tell Liam what Harry’s dad had said to me. My mouth wouldn’t allow it. “Bethany , you can tell me.” Liam pushed. I shook my head and looked down.

I can’t tell you…”

“Why not?”

“I just can’t, Liam.”

“You used to be able to tell me everything…what happened to that? I miss that about us Bethany. We used to be so close; we were so perfect for each other. We just hit a rough patch. I still have feelings for you and I still want to be with you. I want you to be able to talk to me about everything and anything going on in your life. I promised you I would be here from day one.”

“I know Liam…I just…I have too much going on to be with anyone right now.” Liam’s face showed hurt.

“That’s what you said when you broke up with me the first time…”

“Liam, please…don’t make this any harder. I need a friend right now. I need someone that isn’t going to push me when all I want to do is break down…”

“I don’t know Bethany…”

“Liam, please?” I begged. Liam sighed before nodding.

“I’ll try my best to control myself.” I half smiled.

“Thanks Liam.” I said as the bell rang, signaling lunch. “Do you want to walk to lunch together?”

“Yeah, sure.” Liam said, smiling. I smiled as we started walking next to each other to lunch.



Watching them walk together killed me. I had left my study to go to the library to talk to Bethany, since that’s normally where she is during study period. But when I got there, I found her talking to Liam and the conversation seemed pretty serious. I wanted to tell Liam to leave her alone, but I knew Liam would do no such thing…especially since they dated. He clearly still liked her and no matter how hard I convinced myself otherwise…I knew she still liked him too.
