Flummoxed Enchantment

The Sequel to 'Resplendent Enchantment'.


11. The Chest

Me and Louis walked into Harry's house, the smell had disappeared and a tall, masculine figure stood in front of us, head tilted allowing his free flowing curls to hang just off of his forehead. I stood behind Louis. 
"I need that chest." Harry broke the silence. 
"Why?" Louis demanded. 
"It has something in there.. it's important.." Harry slowly spoke. 
"Okay, I'll get it." Louis turned to me mouthing 'will you be okay?' I nodded, 'yes', and he ran outside. Me and Harry stood there in an awkward silence, I didn't know what to say. I scanned his appearance, he was slouching, leaning on the wall behind him with his elbows supporting him. I watched as he loitered, his face remained blank, his illuminated green eyes watched me. I was standing in the middle of the hallway with my arms crossed, slowly turning from side to side with Harry following my actions with his eyes. I didn't feel the slightest bit uncomfortable.
"Ugh." Louis walked in breaking the silence, dropping the chest on the floor, "That must weight 40-50 kilos, Harry, what's in it?" He raised an eyebrow. 
"Stuff.." Harry store straight at the chest. It was an awkward silence, interrupted by the foul smell returning. 
"I have to leave." Louis said walking toward the door, "I'll wait in the car for you, Alex. Sorry." 
"It's fine, you can go." I weakly smiled at Louis. 
"Are you sure?"
"Yeep." I said popping the 'p'. Louis gave me a quick hug, gave Harry a quick death stare and left. 


Harry walked over to the chest and easily lifted it up, carrying it into the lounge room and placing it near a column. He sat on a close by couch and leaned forward, concentrating on the box. 
"W-what is it?" I walked over to the chest and looked at Harry waiting for an answer. 
He let out a heavy breath, "I missed you." 
"Where did you go?"
"I'm sorry."
"Harry, please give me any sort of an explanation. Anything to ease the pain we've all gone through, I don't care if it's a lie." I stood up straight. 
"Alex.." He walked over to me grabbing my hand, caressing my knuckles with his thumb, "I can't lie to you, I couldn't. But I can't tell you the truth." 
"Don't do this to me." I was angry and sad, but so happy that he was back. 
"I can't get you involved in this Alex, it's not worth it." 
"Har-" He stopped me by smacking his lips onto mine, I stood motionless. He pulled away and he started a deep focus between our eyes. I wrapped my arm around the back of his neck and pulled him in, kissing him. He tried sneaking his tongue in but I couldn't and he pulled back again.
"I love you." He spoke softly, "I'm sorry for leaving." 
"Why did you leave?" I tried not to sound too emotional.
"I did something I shouldn't have." 
"Please expand on that Harry.." I trailed off when I noticed he kept diverting his attention toward the chest, what's in there? "It smells like a dead animal's in there." Harry's eyes darted toward me and I slightly pushed him back so I could move closer to it. "Can I open it?" I said, kneeling in front of it. 
"I don't have the key. I wouldn't have let you, anyway." I saw straight through his lie and walked over to him. 
"You can trust me, Harry." I sly-ed my hands into his pocket. 
"I trust you, I just can't get you involved." Harry stopped as I yanked a set of 3 keys from his pocket. One a car key, the other a familiar house key and the third looking like it could fit into the chest. "Alex.." Harry tried taking the keys but I managed to maneuver to the chest, still holding the key. I started to lift the lid of the chest and a whiff of a horrid smell danced around my nose. I looked to Harry in disgust and he had tears in his eyes. I looked back at the box and to him, he slowly backed up toward the wall. I continued to open the chest and.. 
"WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK?!" I dropped the lid and backed away. 
"I'm sorry, I'm sorry." Harry was in tears, his back hit the wall and he fell to the ground, "It was an accident, I didn't mean to. I'm so sorry." He pleaded. "I swear I didn't mean to, I'm sorry." He dug his hands into his palms. 
I crawled back to the chest to re-evaluate and take in everything I was seeing. "Harry, how?" I crawled to Harry. 
"It was a-a- a accident, I sw-sw-swear. I didn't, didn't mean to." He cried.
