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?

20. Hiding Gemma



I watched her as she stormed away. I saw Mike looking at me and he nodded after her. I hoped the fence, Zayn and Louis calling after me but I ignored them. I knocked on her dressing room door and flung it open. Bethany was washing herself in a sink. The sink was stained red from the bloodshed.

“Bethany, don’t push me away like this…” I said. She didn’t even look up at me as she responded.

“Who gave you permission to come in here?”


“Well, you can leave.”

“No, I can’t. Let me give you a ride home.”

“No, that’s fine. I don’t need to see you again.” I walked over to her and grabbed her arm and pulled her too me. She suddenly seemed very vulnerable to me; her strength seemingly gone. I pushed the bloody strands of hair out of her face and held her face in my hands.

“I want to see you.” I whispered. I leaned down and kissed her cheek. “Let me take you home…”

“Okay…” She said, giving in. I smiled and watched her as she finished washing up. As she washed up, I kept looking around the room, feeling like I was being watched.

“Bethany, is there someone else in the room?”


“Who? You’re coach, handler?”

“Nah, my friend.”

“Where are they…?

“You can’t see them.”

“I know I can’t…that’s why I’m asking where they are.”

“You just can’t, okay?” Bethany snapped. I held my hands up, not wanting to cause anymore problems or disagreements.

“Okay, fine. Fair enough.” I said. When she finished cleaning up, she excused herself to the back room, telling me to stay put. I nodded but part of me wanted to know what she was up to…



I quickly led Gemma out of the room, thankful she happened to be in the bathroom when Harry walked into the room. I pushed her into the back alley and told her how to get out to the main streets. I quickly closed the door and went back inside to find Harry right where I left him.

“Okay, I’m ready.” Harry nodded and we walked out to his car where Louis and Zayn were waiting.

“Long time no see…” Louis said slowly.

“Don’t talk to me.” I snapped. Louis nodded and I climbed in the front as Zayn and Louis climbed into the back. Harry walked around, climbed in, and started the car. The whole way home, no one said a word and that is exactly how I wanted it.
