Cocktails and Cigarettes

When Bethany has relationship problems, she finds comfort in going to clubs and drinking. So what happened when she begins to shadow Lou Teasdale? Will her and Harry hit it off, or will she push him away because the cocktails and cigarettes bring her more comfort? *Includes self harm references/actions, cursing, sex, smoking, and alcohol*

“Look who’s finally in school!” Jesse announced when I walked into school that day.

“Yeah…” I pulled on my sleeves, hoping the cuts wouldn’t show.

“Hey girl! How’s working with Lou been going? It has to be good since we haven’t seen much of you!”

“It’s…interesting.” I sighed and pushed my hair from my face when I saw Kathy walking down the hall.

“So…how was breaking up with Harry?” She said as she walked by. This caused Jesse and Mel to both stare at me in awe.

“Where have you been?” I mumbled, not wanting to talk about it. I sped walked away and straight to class, not wanting to see a single human being.

After school, when I got home, I had just received a text from Lou saying she needed me in a couple hours down at the local venue. I told her I would make it and went inside to make some food and change into something more appropriate.

When I got to the venue, I saw Harry first, standing outside with Zayn while he smoked a cigarette. I slowly walked over and Zayn started waving dramatically at me. I gave him a small wave and avoided eye contact with Harry.

“BETHANY!” I heard him yell after me, but I kept walking. I didn’t even look back at him. I didn’t need the stress of Harry in my life; I just needed my cocktails and cigarettes.

“Bethany, you’re here, wonderful!” Lou announced as I walked through the door, saving me. I half smiled and nodded.

“Yes, I made it.”

“I knew you would; you’re so reliable.” I smiled a little again and looked down at my feet. “Hey, what’s going on in that pretty little head of yours?” I snapped my head back up with a scared look in my eyes.


“I’m not giving you any errands until you tell me.” Lou said seriously. I sighed and looked around.

“It’s just Harry, okay? I saw him at the club the other night with some blonde girl.”

“That doesn’t sound like Harry…” Lou looked extremely confused and shook her head. “No, that can’t be right.”

“LOU!” I turned around to the sound of a voice I knew. When I saw who it was, my jaw dropped. “Oh my god, HEY!”

“Uhm…hello Rita…” She grabbed me in a tight hug and squeezed me breathless.

“What are you doing here?!”

“I work for Lou…”

“Oh my god…that’s awesome! I’m working with the boys today. This is how I met Harry.”

“I’m happy you two are happy together.” I blurted out without thinking.

“What are you talking about? We’re best friends…I would never date that boy- he’s too young for me.”

“What…?” My eyes grew wide in shock.

“Is this the girl you met at the club you saw with Harry?” Lou asked. I nodded and she smiled and laughed silently.




“Darling, Harry is still head over heels for you; you shouldn’t be worried about someone like me.”


“Well you’re gorgeous and everything Harry would see in a girl so…”


“Harry sees you, no one else dear…you should go talk to him.”


“Talk to who?” I turned and saw Harry and Zayn.”


“No one.” I spat out, running out of the room before anyone could hold me back.
