Separated at birth

Harry looked at me with intensity in his eyes, “I don’t know why you’re here, or who you are. I don’t know if you’re telling me the truth, or if it’s a pack of lies. But I do know for the first time in my life, I feel complete. I feel like I’ve finally found you Marty, this is crazy and I know it is. But it’s true. You could be my twin like you say, or you could be another person, but whatever it is I don’t feel empty anymore.”


34. Chapter 33

The next day was no better. In fact it was worse if you could believe that. Harry and I hardly spoke each coming up with ways to get rid of Derek. One of Harry’s was to kill him. Somehow I don’t think that would make anything better… We were lost, even together we both felt empty and worthless.

“What’s up with you two?” Liam asked.

Harry and I looked at each other before shrugging.

“Marty can I have a word?” he asked.

Harry didn’t seem to care. I nodded and took a walk outside with him.

“Okay what is wrong?”


“Marty don’t lie to me. Hell Harry didn’t even care when I asked you to talk.”

“He has a lot on his mind” we both do.

“Fine if you’re not going to tell me about my best friend, tell me about you?”

“Please drop it Liam.”

He sighed as his hand slid into mine.

“I don’t like secrets.”

“Really? You’re the one who wants to keep us from Harry.”

God I am a bitch.

“Sorry” I muttered.

He let go of my hand “let me know when you want to talk. Or hell want to start being honest with me” he growled walking away from me.

To be honest I bring most of this on myself fuck sake.

I kicked the nearest wall hurting my foot, “shit.”

“Hello there Marty is it?” Derek’s voice came from behind me.

I instantly cringed “I have nothing to say to you.”

“You owe me” he hissed.

“I owe you nothing now get the fuck away from me” I snapped.

“Oh Marty” he rested his hand on my face.

I backed away from him “don’t touch me.”

“Do you have a boyfriend?”

“No” well sort of who knows.

“Then why did you tell me you did when we first met?”

“Because I know people, I knew something was iffy about you and guess what I was right.”

He laughed wickedly.

“Derek come here” Anne shouted.

He huffed “always fucking whining.”

“Do you love her?” I asked.

He shrugged “she gives me what I want, you will to one day. Like mother like daughter is that what they say?”

I slapped him hard round the face. He pushed me hard against the wall.

“You are pushing all my buttons.”

“Good” I said bluntly.

“Derek” she shouted again.

"Yes" he shouted.

"What did you do to Harry?" I spat.

"I don't know what you're talking about" although his face said different, maybe I should have kept quiet.

“I’ll see you around cupcake.”

I gagged at the pet name he had given me.

Once I went back inside the living room I yanked Harry up from his seat and pushed him outside.

“What?” he asked.

“We need to get him out of here.”

“Has he said anything to you?”

“It doesn’t matter, but we need to do it now.”


“I don’t know” I frowned. “We need help Harry I don’t know by whom but we do.”

“We’re not telling anyone” he snapped.

I sighed “then what are we going to do?”

“I don’t know just leave it to me” he grunted going back inside.

The thing is he was just like me, too like me. He never let anybody in and once he had he would push them away again.

As it was Anne’s birthday we were having a celebratory meal.

“Marty come sit next to me” Derek patted the seat next to him.

Harry grabbed my arm lunging me away from him “she’s sitting next to me.”

“Well I was going to ask you to sit in the other seat beside me” he frowned.

Anne took pity on him “for god sake Harry can you be nice for once?”

Everyone else had already sat down leaving us no option but to sit next to him.

“I want to sit next to Marty” he spat at Derek.

“So do I” he growled.

“You can sit next to me, so I can sit next to both of you” Harry negotiated for me.

I couldn’t let him do this. But it was too late Harry was sat next to Derek and the only seat left was between him and Liam.

“You don’t have to do this” I whispered.

“It’s fine” he patted my hand.

Various amount of conversation was passed round the table. None of which interested me, my eyes remained on Derek watching him closely. Liam made no effort to speak to me, which I couldn’t really blame him.

Harry’s POV

Every part of my body shook as I felt him beside me. I tried to shuffle over so I had a bit of distance but he would move even closer to me until our legs were touching. I could feel Marty watching us to see what was happening.

Derek’s hand grasped my leg. My breathing fastened as he rubbed his hand up and down. I couldn’t take this anymore.

"You alright Harry you seem pale?" he smirked.

"No" I whispered.

His hand remained on my leg for most of the meal until I finally had enough. No way was I allowing him to get away with this. I thumped the table with my fists.

“Harry are you alright?” My mum asked me.

“I need some air” I hissed at her.      

Derek followed me outside “playing hard to get are we?”

“Get the fuck away from me.”

“Oh I like it when you’re angry” he snarled.

“Please” I pleaded.

"You told that bitch about our little secret didn't you?" he grunted.

"Do whatever you want but leave her alone" I pleaded.

"This is too much fun" he laughed wickedly.

"Fuck off."

Marty came running outside “you heard him” she shouted.

“Oh hello” Derek smiled at her.

I shoved him hard watching him as he fell to the floor. My next instinct was to boot him hard in the stomach causing him as much pain as I could.

“Harry what are you doing” my mum came running out.

“Giving him what he deserves" I kicked him again.

“Why would you do this?” she shrieked.

I took a deep breath and looked up to her “because he, well he…”

“Hurt me” Marty interrupted me. “He hurt me” she repeated.

“He what?” she gasped.

“It happened in the motel” Marty gulped clearly not amused to be talking about it.

“It’s true mum and…”

“Nothing” Marty glared at me. “It happened near a month ago.”

My mum looked horrified as she slapped Derek round the face “get out of my life” she shouted.

He backed away from her “she’s lying.”

“I believe my daughter now go” Anne ordered. “Before I call the police,” she threatened.

Derek’s eyes widened “I’m going.”

I turned to Marty “you didn’t have to do that.”

“I would do anything for you Harry remember that.”

I kissed her forehead “I love you.”

“Love you too” she smiled.
