6. Alex's first mistake

I woke up first that morning. I got up and went to the bathroom. I brushed my teeth and hair and went downstairs. I left Harry a not telling him I was downstairs and that I would be bath with breakfast. I left him an extra toothbrush and slipped inside. I went downstairs to find nobody home. My mom was at work, Catherine and Karielys were in school, and my dad was at work. I grabbed the house phone and called my mom. “Hey, mom, I didn’t know you were working today.” I said sounding calm. “Yeah, they called me last night after you went to sleep. I will be home later. I’ll be home after your sisters so I want you home by then. I have to go. I’ll see you later. I love you.” She said. “Love you too, mom. Bye.” And I hung up.

I ended up getting breakfast at McDonalds anyway. I got me a frozen coffee but I didn’t get Harry coffee. I didn’t know if he liked it so I took my chances and only got him food. When I got home, I saw Harry peeking through my bedroom window. I laughed a little and went inside. “Harry! Come down. I got us breakfast.” I heard my room open and Harry step out. “Relax, no one is home.” I said. He came up to me and gave me a kiss. “Yummy, what did u get?” he said peeking in the bag. “Everything in there is yours. I already got mine out. I didn’t know if you liked coffee so I didn’t get you any. I don’t like coffee. Not unless it’s frozen. You can have what I have left or I could make you some.” I said. “I actually prefer tea. You know…because I am British.” He said sarcastically. “Well, I would love to make you some tea.” I said in an English accent.

I put the kettle on the stove and went to get the tea. It was on the top shelf so I had to reach up to get it. As I did, Harry came up beside me and poked me in my sides. I screamed and turned. As an instinct I whacked him in the arm and punched him. “Ouch, oh I'm sorry.” He said. He had a bloody lip. “Oh my gosh! I'm so sorry!!! It was a reaction. Oh, this sucks!” I said. Despite my efforts, I started to giggle. He laughed too. I got a rag and helped him with his face. I set him on the couch and wiped off his lip blood. It wasn’t a lot but it was enough to make my feel really bad. His lip was starting to swell so I got him an ice pack from the freezer. When I gave it to him, I started to cry. I felt so bad that I had made this really nice guy bleed. When he saw my crying he looked shocked. “Are you okay?” he said. I nodded. “Yeah, I'm fine, but you’re bleeding. I hurt you. I am so sorry! I won’t touch you” I wailed. I ran to my room.

I couldn’t stand to see him like that. I couldn’t believe I had done that. I was crying into my pillow when Harry walked in. He sat next to where I was laying down. He rubbed my back slowly. “It’s okay. I'm fine, see. I'm a guy, I have had it worse.” He said. “I hit you.” Was all I managed to get out through the sobs “Alex, look at me.” He said. I slowly turned and looked at him. He's lip looked better due to the ice pack. “It’s okay. I forgive you. I'm fine.” He said. I looked into his eyes and saw that he was being sincere. My eyes were red and puffy. I reached up and pulled him in for a hug. I loved the way he held me. “I'm sorry. I didn’t mean to hit you. It was a reaction. When I was little, there was a robber and he had poked me with his gun and I wacked it way; I was little so he didn’t expect it. I took that opportunity to punch him across the jaw. My dad got him and called the cops. I was so scared. I thought I was gonna die. I have always had issues with people poking me. I tend to overreact but that day my instincts saved me and my family so I never doubt my dispositions now. I'm really sorry. I would never have hurt you if you hadn’t scared me.” I said. He pulled away and looked at me. “You must have been really brave. Wow, my girlfriend isn’t just smart, she is brave and really strong to.” He said with a smile.

“So you actually still want me?” I said. He grinned and leaned in. He kissed me with reassurance. It was as soft as a feather but the kiss meant something. I pressed myself into him. And he held me.

We stayed their kissing for a while. It was long enough to make my head cloudy. Harry pulled away and just held me. It was quite early and I had a lot of homework and I had chores. “Well, I need to get busy, are you willing to help?”  I said. He nodded. “But I still have to finish eating.” He said. I nodded and he helped me up. “I’ll finish making your tea.” I said. I put his kettle to warm and let the tea boil. I let it sit there while I started washing clothes. I only washed my clothes and my sisters if I was feeling generous. I got my clothes and a couple towels and threw them in the washing machine. I left the clothes to wash and went to finish the tea. I fixed the tea and gave it to Harry. He just smiled and accepted it.
