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?

14. Coincidence


“You think I want to be a fighter?” I spat through my teeth.

“You tell me.” Harry said, standing up to me. I suddenly felt nervous because no one has ever stood up to me like he just did.

“I felt like I had to, so it’s what I did.”


“I have my reasons.”

“And why won’t you tell me?”

“Because you aren’t worth it.” Harry took a step back and nodded once.

“I understand that you don’t know me, but that doesn’t mean I’m leaving you.” Harry said. I shook my head as tear rolled down my cheeks.

“You don’t though…”

“I don’t what?”

“Understand why we can’t be friends.”

“Why can’t we? Explain it to me.” I opened my mouth but closed it seconds after. I couldn’t bear to tell him.

“I can’t tell you.”

“How bad could it have been?”

“Bad.” I mumbled. “I think you need to leave.” Harry shook his head.



“I’m not leaving you here alone with no ride home.” I sighed and gave in.

“Fine.” I did a few more rounds with Mike before Harry drove me home. When I got home, I wanted to die. Maybe it was just a coincidence…maybe it wasn’t actually the same Gemma.
