10. Chapter ten: Drunk

 

{APRIL POV}
Jade's car pulled into the driveway, I walked out of the house and into Jade's car. I was wearing a white lace tank top, a mini skirt, and high heels. Jade is wearing a cute purple top that showed a lot of cleavage and white jean shorts. After a few wrong turns, and fighting over the radio, we finally pulled up to Adam's house. I looked at my best friend, mentally preparing myself for the night ahead. We looked at one another, accepting that this night could change everything. 

"Let's rock this bitch." I say, pulling down my lace top a little more.

As I dragged Jade with me to the bar, I couldn't help but feel heartbroken that Harry wasn't with me. I felt alone surrounded by strangers. Jade and I drank bottles of vodka and danced with random people surrounding us. I barely feel light headed and the world seemed to move funny. I've never been drunk before, but once I started drinking I couldn't stop. It's like I completely lost control of my body. I know what I'm doing when I'm drunk but for some reason, it's like another wild me. I was doing things I normally don't do. I was letting go for the first time in a while. I was free. Then I felt two hands on my waist as I swayed my hips to the beat. I turned around to see Adam biting his lip.

"You look sexy when you're drunk," He whispered in my ear as I blushed. He pulled me closer to him as we kept dancing. Jade drifted away somewhere until I saw her in a corner making out with a hot blonde guy. She was a whole different person when she was drunk. I didn't really know Adam until tonight. He actually was hot, but I still wanted Harry. Adam explored my body with his hands as we moved to the beat. He started to place small kisses on my bare shoulder. I quietly moaned. I enjoyed it, but it still couldn't replace Harry. I ignored the thought of Harry. I came here tonight to get rid of him, to show him that I can have fun without him. 

After the song, Adam took me up stairs to a room. I didn't know what to expect, but I was drunk as hell, so I went anyway. When we got up there he started asking about Harry, which made me regret coming up here. "Why didn't Harry come?" Adam says holding my hips and pulling me closer. 

"He's obviously jealous of you and doesn't want to see you. So he didn't come, I had to come alone." I blurted out, I skipped the details in fear of crying again as I thought of him. It was no use a tear slid down my cheek and my mascara dripped on my face. Adam wiped it off. 

"You know you don't need makeup. I think you look better with nothing on." He smirked, his eyes traveling up and down my body. I knew he meant it in a sexual way, but it was still kinda sweet. "Harry obviously doesn't know how to treat a woman." He winked and I blushed again, just like the first time we met, he's always been a womanizer. I wrapped my arms around the back of his neck and pulled him closer. We were so close I could practically smell the alcohol on him. 

"Why don't you show me how you would treat a woman." I smiled and he ran a hand through my hair, and I loved it. He slowly pulled my tank top off, revealing my bra. Then I unbuttoned his shirt and backed him up onto the bed. I pinned him down, straddling his waist. Our lips were inches from each other, and I couldn't believe I was doing this. How far are we going to take this? Should I pull away..? No. I kissed him, this time with my own free will. 

We were interrupted by the turning of the doorknob. I heard a gentle click and the door slid silently open with only a little swish of air. Standing in the doorway was Harry... He looked like he had been running, his face was a light pink and his hair was matted down with sweat. His eyes were wide as he looked from me to Adam, then back to me. I could see the hurt in his eyes but within seconds it was replaced with anger. I instantly got off of Adam and put my tank top back on. 

“Wh-what the hell are you doing?!” The volume of his voice had shocked even me as he stood, staring at me in the doorway. His hands turned into tight fists as he clenched his jaw.

“Nothing, we were-" I was cut off by Adam. 

"She was having a great time before you showed up. Quit acting like you give a damn! If you ever cared about her she wouldn't be here alone!" Adam's voice rang out from next to me, matching Harry's tone. They started getting in each others faces and arguing. I tried desperately to grip Harry's arm and tell him that he wasn’t worth it, but before I could stop him he shoved Adam into the wall. A fire ignited behind Adam’s eyes as he stared at Harry in disbelief. 

“You shouldn’t have done that, Styles.” Harry ducked the first punch that Adam swung at him, but doubled over at the second impact of Adam's fist hard on his stomach.

“Adam, stop!” I screamed, my voice cracking and on the verge of tears. They both ignored me and Harry took a swing at Adam’s eye as soon as he was standing upright again, his clenched fist coming in contact with his skin and making Adam stumble for a moment. 

Tears stained my cheeks as I continued to cry out and tell them to stop, stepping between them and risking getting hurt to stop Harry from anymore harm. But neither listened, Adam beating on Harry relentlessly as he fought back effortlessly, they both were evenly matched. But I had to stop it, they would kill each other if I didn't step in. I tried one last time to break them up by flinging myself between them. 

“Stop! Stop it, both of you!" I pushed them away from each other holding them back with my hands. They both stopped, not wanting me to get hurt. They stood there panting, both of their hands at their sides. I put my hands down trusting that they wouldn't try to kill each other again. Silence filled the room, nothing but the sounds of Harry and Adam breathing heavily. I screwed up big time, I didn't know what to say. 

Harry broke the silence, "How could you?" I turned to face him, his green eyes glaring at me. His anger was rising, he was practically screaming at me. “I thought you were someone special, how you had me wrapped around your finger since the second I saw you. Turns out you’re just a cold-hearted liar.” Harry yelled, his words hurt. I felt guilty for what I almost did with Adam. I felt a sharp pain in my chest and looked at him with tears in my eyes. I couldn't breathe, I felt like I was going to faint. I should have never come here. 

"Don't play innocent. You know exactly what you're doing to me. Playing with my emotions, making me feel so damn special and then one second later, I find out it's all a lie! Let me tell you, the feeling fucking sucks!" He stopped to catch his breath, leaving me stunned, lips parted, eyes wide. I was speechless. Anyone would be after hearing someone let out all the feelings they've been bottling up inside them for a while. I didn't know what to do or what to say cause he had every right to say that, and every ounce of me was sure of that. 

"Harry.." I muttered, my eyes pleading. 

"Save it!" 

"Harry please." 

"No April! I tried to talk, I tried to care but I give up. No ones good enough for you. You're stuck in your own little bubble and won't let anyone in. I thought I could trust you!" 

"You can." 

"Not enough! April I've tried so god damn hard to please you. But it seems everything I've done is worth nothing to you!" 

"Harry, you know that's not true-" 

"No April. I get it! You used me. You didn't care about me you just felt sorry for yourself and wanted someone to pay some attention to you!" 

"Harry no..-" My eyes kept watering and I tried blinking to keep the tears in. 

"Yes! All those times I wanted to help you, you didn't give a shit. You're ungrateful April. How much have I helped you these past few weeks? How much have I looked after you. And for what!? For you to go behind my back and..." He looked beside me giving Adam a nasty glare. 

“Let me ex-” I said but was cut off once again.

Harry shot me a glare, "Don't give me your bullshit!" He didn't sound like himself, he sounded mean, bitter, and heartbroken. He turned around and opened the door slamming it behind him. What have I done?! He'll never talk to me again. I've never been so sorry in my life. Adam grabbed my arm as if he knew I was going to run after him. 

"April, calm down. Harry will get over it eventually." He said calmly. 

I exploded, “ADAM DO YOU NOT GET THIS?" I yelled through tears. “Harry will NEVER get over this." 

“Babe-" 

“Why am I still here with you?" I cut him off. “I have to go. Sorry Adam." I picked up my things and started to walk out. 

"April please… I know this is wrong but… I love you." I was in shock that no words came out, just ice blank stares. 

“I-i'm sorry." I stammered reluctant to leave him. Adam hesitated to loosen his grip on my arm. He looked at me with piercing blue eyes, filled with shock and sadness. 

"So your just going to leave? After all he did to you, your going to go run back to him?" He stared at me intently, I looked down avoiding his gaze. Please don't make me choose... I bit my lip, turned around and walked out the door. I was to scared to turn around and see his devastated figure standing alone in the room. I slammed the door, breaking guy number two’s heart tonight. 

I stumbled down the stairs as fast as I could to catch up with Harry, luckily Adam didn't run after me. I searched desperately around the party for brown curly hair, but I saw nothing. I ran through a crowd of people trying to find him, pushing and shoving people out of the way. I wiped my tears away, not caring about my mascara. I frantically looked everywhere for him but still nothing. I pushed past more people and went into the kitchen, nothing. I ran to search for him at the front door. To my relief, I saw Harry walking to the front door. His head was down and he was walking with his hands in his pockets.

"Harry, don't go please. I didn't mean anything I did..." He turned around startled by my presents. He looked down, shaking his head. I ran up and grabbed his arm holding it close to me. I felt his whole body tense and he looked at me. 

"Don't go. You promised you wouldn't leave me alone." I cried into his arm. He didn't move for a second, then forcefully shook me off. I stumbled back and looked at him wide eyed. 

"Well promises are mean't to be broken." His voice was barely audible and raspy. He opened the door and ran outside into the darkness. 

"Harry please! I'm sorry!" I yelled. He stormed off as more tears fall down my cheeks. The best thing that has ever happened to me just left. I put on my shoes and ran outside, screaming his name at the top of my lungs. I ran onto the road, the cold night created goosebumps on my arms and caused my lip to tremble. I stood there as I felt the rain pelt down on me. He was hurt and I felt terrible. I watched him go down the street with his fists tightening. I can't loose him. I ran to him with all the strength I had left. My hair was soaked my clothes were soaked and the rain stung my skin as a blast of cold air hit me. It was to late, I couldn't catch up he's to fast. I collapsed to my knees and pounded on the ground. I hated myself right now. I don't know why, but nothing ever goes right in my life. I just wanted to pass out on the side of the street and never wake up. 

A tear escaped my eye as it trailed down my cheek. It was closely followed by another, and another until I was crying again. I put my head in my hands as I let the tears fall. It seemed natural now, crying. It's all I ever seemed to do. I couldn't help it anymore, they just fell. But I made no attempt to stop them. It was a physical reminder of what I was feeling on the inside, all the sadness and loss and pain that was tearing me apart was shown with the many tears that soaked my face and dampened my sleeves. 

I turned around to see bright head lights behind me. There was a loud honk, followed by Jade getting out of her car. She rushed over to me and helped me to my feet. 

"April, what the hell?! You could've got run over! What's wrong?" She asked panicking. I couldn't say anything, I didn't want to.. I stayed silent as she helped me into the passenger seat. "April... Talk to me, did something happen? I saw Harry, then you running out of there crying..." 

I sat there for a few minutes, until I decided I was somewhat stable enough to explain everything. I could feel my eyes burning with tears, they clouded my vision, and before I could stop them a few drops rolled down my cheeks. I let it all out and told her everything. How I felt about Harry, how I almost had drunk sex with Adam, and when Harry walked in. I felt terrible dragging her into this but I needed to tell someone, I couldn’t hold it in anymore.


{HARRY POV}
I'm standing under the big willow tree in the park, thinking. The rain was pounding against my clothes as I sat with a blank expression on my face. I'd rather stand here than go back home and face April. An exasperated sigh escaped my lips as I brushed my soaked hair to the side of my face. 

Heartbroken. Betrayed. Abandoned.

Somewhere inside I felt it was my fault. Maybe if I had tried a bit harder. Maybe if I had been more affectionate…or maybe if I were less clingy. Maybe even more mature. But these thoughts were useless, she made her choice. And no amount of wishful thinking could change that.

~Flash back before the party~

"Why do you have to be so difficult all the time?" I sighed. I rubbed my hands over my face and took in a few deep breaths before falling down on the couch beside her. I looked at her one last time. 

Then she got up and left, she didn't even glance in my direction. Fine, go to that dumb party see if I care. Then something vibrated next to me, I looked down to see April's phone. She left it? I picked it up to give it to her when it lit up. 

Message from... Adam. 

Surprisingly it didn't have a password and I had easy access into her and Adam's conversation. 

The message said Are you still coming? I'm sorry about today, are you mad?

Why would I be mad? I quickly typed back. 

A few minutes later he replied. After I kissed you ran off without another word... I just thought you were

He's a dead man. After I read the text I dropped the phone. I sat on the couch with my hands on my head. I picked up the phone one more time and read the text over and over and over again, until I realized that she lied to me. She kissed Adam! Anger boiled in me, I took my jacket, my phone, mum's keys, and left the house. I'm not letting him touch her again.

I got into the car and the piece or crap wouldn't start. "Dammit!" I got out and ran. 

****

I showed up at Adam's door out of breath. I walked inside and saw some people sitting in the couch. 

"Hey! Have you guys seen Adam?" 

Then one of the guys spoke, "Yea, he went upstairs with a hot blonde chick. Probably taking her to the room if you know what I'm saying!" He winked. My eyebrows frowned together, my fists clenched, and my veins stuck out in anger. Before I could even think, I rushed through groups of people trying to get to the stairs. I opened every door which was empty until I got to the last one. When I opened the door... Seeing April with Adam was worse feeling in the world, it was like an emotional slap. 

~Flashback over~

I have nowhere else to go. So I'm just standing against the tree trunk, letting the rain drench me. I didn't care anymore. Hot tears streamed down my face, but the rain cleaned it away. I slid down against the tree trunk and fell on the wet grass.
