The Fighter

Harry is dragged by Zayn to a female boxing match to see one of the best female fighters-Bethany. Harry watches Bethany as she fights and realizes by the way she moves, something about her is off but she's still powerful. When he gets the chance to meet her, and their relationship takes off, can they fight to keep their relationship together or will they be pulled apart because they both lead two totally different lives and Bethany's deep, dark secret?

*Includes sex, alcohol, self harm references/actions, and cursing*


17. Avoiding


I knew it was wrong, but since Harry had driven me home the last time we hung out, I’ve been trying extra hard to avoid him. I couldn’t tell him about his sister or the fact that I had killed someone, and that was why I fight. He would run away from me, so I might as well save myself the pain and just leave before he could.

I was working in the gym on the punching bag, trying to get all my anger out about my parents, Gemma, and that girl that I fought. I didn’t even know her name. The more I thought about it, the more I realized her parents probably didn’t even know what happened to her. This thought made me even angrier because it was my entire fault. My parents, Dan, Gemma, and this girl- it was my entire fault.

“You’re getting stronger…I can see it.” I stopped the bag from swinging and looked up at Mike.

“It’s one of those days.”

“No, I mean I see it in your arms; the muscle.” I looked down at my arms and shrugged.

“I can be better.”

“Bethany, when are you going to realize no one can have the perfect game?”

“I can…I will.”

“It wasn’t your fault.”

“Yes it was. I killed her in a match- I have to die the way she died. I will die in the ring.”


“No; it’s going to happen.”

“If you want that to happen, you need to stop working out.”

“I can’t.”

“Bethany, this is getting unhealthy.”

“I will do what I want!” I snapped. Mike nodded, not saying another word. He walked back to his office and I went back to the bag. It was my fault. I would die the same way she did as vengeance. I had to do it in her honor. I was doing it for her.
