23. One Down...

It was now Monday morning.

Yesterday Harry proposed to me.

I'm still trying to wrap my head around it. He was so sweet, I still want to cry just by thinking of it.

The whole panicking part of it hasn't hit me, I've heard it hits girls pretty hard sometimes. I think I will be able to handle it happens.


I finally got out of bed and began to turn what was a mess into something halfway decent looking.

I put on my light blue Abercrombie tank top and put my light pink shirt over it. I wore my skinny jeans and wore my white moccasins boots over them. I wore my long heart necklace and the bracelet that went with it.

I put on my white beanie and walked down stairs.


I was surprised to see Harry sitting at the table ready to go. It was early.


"Harry, what are you doing up, babe?" I asked as I walked over and walked into his arms.

He wrapped me up and hugged me. "I want to take you out to breakfast." He smiled.


Gah, whatta sweetie.


"Okay." I smiled.


We heard our parents bedroom door open.

I looked up at Harry as I stepped out of his arms.


"Ring." Harry said.

I looked down and took it off. "Right." I shoved  it into my pocket.


Anne walked down.


"Mum, what are you doing here? You're supposed to be on your way to work by now." Harry said.

"I slept in. I'm going now." She said grabbing a apple off the counter where the other fruit sat in a bowl.

"Bye guys, have a good day. I love you both." She said kissing our foreheads.


I sure hope she doesn't hate me after tonight. Harry and I had planned on telling her tonight.

Yes, my nerves were shot. I knew Harry's were, too.




Harry and I arrived at school.


When we walked in, we saw Jade staring us down.

I nudged Harry's arm to get his attention, once I got it, I pointed over at her.

"What's her problem?" Harry asked me.

I shrugged. "She just wants you." I replied.


Jade could do whatever she wanted, she could beat the living crap out of me and send all the nasty texts she wanted, I wasn't leaving my boyfriend...or fiance. Well, she didn't know that much yet.

Plus, Harry didn't want her anyway. She didn't respect herself or anyone else for that matter.

She was a piece of garbage, honestly.




Later that day in 4th period, I saw Gary.


"Hey" He smiled.

"Oh, hey. How are you?" I asked him smiling back.

"Pretty good."

I nodded. "Great to hear." I replied.

"How are you?"

Prefect. How could I not be?

"Hunky Dory." I said with a big smile.

"Excuse me?" He chuckled.

I rolled my eyes. "It means I'm great. You wouldn't last 1 second in Mooresville." I giggled.

"I agree." He said.

I continued to read through the chapter we were assigned with questions about it.  "Do you get this?" He asked.

I nodded. "You don't?"

"Not really."

"Just read through it. The answers are there."

I hated when people said they didn't know the answer. It's in front of your face, just read it.

It's not rocket science.


Minutes later he started talking again.

"Whoa. Where did you get that ring?" He asked.

I covered my hand.

"It's a...promise ring." I blurted out.

I had to think of something fast.

"Promise ring?! I didn't even know you were dating. Who is it?"


Uh oh.

"Uhhhhum. You don't know him...he's- he's-"

"Not from here?"

"Okay?" I replied.

I'll go with it.

"Where is he from?" He asked.

Ugh. Shut the heck up, fool!

"He is from- you know, he's from-"



He looked down at the ring again.

"Then how did you get the ring if he doesn't live here?" He asked.

Okay, that's it.

"What's with all the questions? I mean..." I was aggravated.


His eyes widened.

"I'm sorry, I didn't mean to-"

"I know, it's fine, really. Don't worry about it." I said rubbing my temples.

"He must love you. I mean, promising to always be yours? Big commitment."


Oh my god. He was right.

Always? ALWAYS. Forever.

I'm going to be a wife soon. Me! Just a 19 year old girl. 


"Oh my god. Always his." I whispered.

"What?" Gary asked.


I raised my hand.

"Mr. Foster."

"Yes, Renee,"

"May I go to the bathroom?"

He stared at me. It was the "You Can Hold It" stare.

"It's a girl emergency!"

"Okay, go." He didn't hesitate.


I walked to the bathroom.

I felt as if I couldn't breathe.

"Okay, Renee," I began to talk to myself. "Pull it together. Harry wants to marry you. You want to marry Harry." I repeated that several times.


I realized I was panicking. It hit me.


"Marriage, huh?" A familiar voice said from behind me.


I thought for minute before turning.

My phone!


I pulled it out without her seeing and flipped on the recoding.


I turned around.

She was standing up against the wall.

"What did we discuss in here the other day?"

"And what did I have to say after you beat the crap out of me? Harry doesn't want you." I replied.

She shook her head.

"I told you to stay away from him, otherwise your secret would get out."


I closed my eyes. I realized I wasn't afraid of her anymore.

"Then do it Jade. Because, yes, people will know that Harry and I are together, but everyone will find out how low you are and how much of a terrible person you really are."


She walked up to me and got in my face and pushed me.

"Which is worse? That or everyone forever making fun of you? You'll never live this down, you'll eventually want to kill yourself from all the embarrassment. You'll disappoint your dad and Anne. Harry will leave you and denied he ever got with you. You'll have no friends left because they'll all see how messed up and sick you are. It's just a matter of time."

I clenched my fist.


"We'll see." I said and pushed her out of the way.

There was no reason to fight with her, I got all I needed to bring her down on tape.


The bell rang for lunch and I walked to my locker.

Harry met up with me there.


I shut my locker and saw Harry walk up.

I smiled and ran up to him. "I got it."

"Got what?" He asked.

"What we need to bring that slut Jade down."

He gave me a confused look.

"How the hell did you do that?" He asked me.

I took out my phone and wiggled it in my hand.

He smiled. "Aren't you a genius?"


I grabbed his hand and we went to the principles office.




"Well, you got the proof we needed, Miss Northern." She said.

I looked over at Harry and smiled and he smiled back.

"We will get on this as soon as possible. But one question..."


I nodded.


"You two are engaged?" She asked pointing two fingers at us.


Uh oh.


"Uh, yeah." Harry said. "As of yesterday."

She just stared at us not saying a word.

"You're siblings.."

"Step siblings." I quickly replied.

I saw Harry look at me from the corner of my eye.

"But no blood relation. We wouldn't have messed up kids or anything."

I looked over at him quickly. "Whoa. One step at a time, big boy." I said.


Again, nothing but stares.

"Does your parents know?" She asked.

"My dad knows."

"My mum will know. We are planning on telling her tonight." Harry said after me.

She raised her eyesbrows.

"Good luck with that."

I narrowed my eyes.



We got in the car and I turned on the radio and sat back.


"You ready for this?" I asked Harry who was concentrating on the road. But I knew he was freaking out inside.

"No." He said shaking his head.

"Me either."


"Directioners, attention."


I gasped and Harry looked over.


"A new song from Two Directions. 'I Would' and it is rumored to be that Edward has revealed that this song is about a fan of his he had fallen for just a few moths ago. Lucky girl, huh?"


I looked at Harry as the song began.


"Lately I found myself thinking

been dreaming about you a lot.

And up in my head I'm your boyfriend,

but that's one thing you already got."


Harry shook his head.

Edward's verse came on.


"He drives to school every morning

while I walk alone in the rain.

He'd kill me without any warning

if he took a look in my brain."


Harry stared at the radio. He was mad.

"Yeah, that's right, and don't forget! You think you're all good looking with your stupid quiff-"


Oh my god.


"Harry." I chuckled.


"Would he say he's in L-O-V-E?

Well if it was me, I would, I would.

Would he hold you when you're feeling low?

Baby, you should know, that I would."


"The he-" Harry stopped himself. He turned off the radio.

"That song is obviously about you." He said. "Besides, isn't he with- Whatserface?"


i raised my eyebrows. "Taylor Swift?"

"Yeah, her. The other cute country girl."


Ugh! CUTE?!


"Don't ruin her for me." I joked.


He smiled.




We arrived home and just stayed in the car.


I stared at the house just wondering what I was going to say.


Harry grabbed my hand.


"We can do this."


I looked over at him.

He was smiling.

I felt better once I seen his beautiful smile on his beautiful face.

"As long as you're there, too." I replied.


"Always babe." He said.
