54. Bruises

Harry's POV
Char took off her shirt to change and I saw a huge bruise on her hip. 
"Is- is that from me?" I asked. She smiled weakly and turned, trying to hide it from me. Instead she revealed another dark smudge on her perfect skin. 
"And that one? Is that him?" I asked nervously. 
"No. He did this." She whispered, holding up her wrist with four spots the size of finger prints. 
"Then I did both of those?" 
Char looked down, not wanting to answer me. 
I gently traced the purplish marks that were there because of me. 
"Don't Harry, I know you're beating yourself up about this." She whispered, pulling on a tshirt. 
"I know I just feel awful that it's always you who gets hurt." I said. 
"I'm fine." She said seriously. 
"How did you get the second?" I asked, not sure what else I did. 
"Well, the first time we had sex you were very gentle... A couple hours ago, that word doesn't exactly apply." She bit her lip. 
I had hurt her while making love?

How the hell did she not tell me before?

I scratched the back of my head as she traced her scar on her calf, another reminder that she had gotten hurt because of me. 
"It's not because of you." She whispered, reading my mind. 
"You got shot protecting me!" I exploded. 
"It was my choice! And my crazy ex boyfriend!" She fired back. 
"I'm supposed to be protecting you!" I frowned. 
"Maybe I don't need as much protecting as you think." She grumbled. 
"But I want to protect you." I whispered, running a hand through her hair. 
"I want to keep you safe, I can't let you be taken from me." I sighed, holding her against my bare chest. 


Char sighed and we climbed into bed. 
A little while later, with her head on my chest, Char whispered, "How's this gonna work?" 
"What?" I asked. 
"Us. You live in England and you are touring and stuff and I'm here." She sighed. 
"I dunno love, but somehow it will." I answered kissing her lips gently.
Char nodded and cuddled up next to me. I wrapped an arm around her, careful to avoid the bruises. 


Char's POV
I was straightening my hair when Harry walked in. All day we had been relaxing inside because the paps were surrounding my house. 
"Hey gorgeous." He whispered kissing me. 
I giggled and kissed him again. 
He was wearing pants and a tshirt with his dog tag. It looked different... I put down the straightener and picked up the little tag. It now read my name and his. I grinned and looked up at him. 
"What? I'm not the only one that matters, you're my life now." He said. I got teary because no one had said anything like that to me before. 
"Aw, love don't cry. Why're you sad?" Harry said. 
"I-I just love you so much!" I frowned into his chest. He rubbed my back and kissed my hair a couple times until I calmed down. 
"I love you too." He whispered. 
I smiled, blinking away tears and said, "I know." Then kissed him. 
"Woah! Didn't mean to interrupt." Niall screamed when he opened the door. We laughed, but Harry walked a bit and pressed me against the door so no one could open it. I let out a small moan, causing Harry to kiss me with much more enthusiasm. I ran my hands through his hair and he held me close.

I let out a sigh and mumbled against his lips, "I love you."

I felt him smile and pick me up with my legs around his waist and set me on the counter so we were now about the same height. We kissed and kissed and kissed. I didn't want to stop and neither did Harry. There was a pound on the door, I pulled away grinning as Harry began to kiss my neck and jaw and collar bone. 
"What?" I asked loudly. 
"You two have to hurry. We are leaving in half an hour!" Zayn yelled. 
I sighed and Harry brought his lips back to mine. I giggled but pulled away. He frowned and pouted. 
"I'm dressed." He whined. 
"I'm not and only half my hair is straight!" I said.
He laughed and kissed my cheek, "You still look lovely as ever." I smiled, lightly kissed him, and finished straightening my hair.

I went back to my room with no clue what to wear. I groaned and belly flopped on my bed in my running shorts and tshirt. 
"Love?" Harry smiled. He crawled over to me on the bed and rolled me only his lap. I couldn't help but smile. 
"There we go, a pretty smile." He said, causing me to smile again. 
 "I have no clue what to wear." I sighed. Harry grinned and pulled out his phone and sent a text. 
"What was that?" I asked as the boys walked in. 
"Char! Princess what's wrong?" Louis said. 
"I have nothing to wear." I frowned. 
"Hmm we'll see about that!" Niall said running to my closet with the others. A couple minutes later they came out with a baby blue sundress that was strapless, cinched at the top, and flowy at the bottom. 
"Perfect! I forgot I had this." I said running into the bathroom to change. It was exactly what I needed! I came out and the all clapped. I laughed and grabbed my wedges and a light brown woven belt. 
"Babe, you don't need to do your make up, they will there." Niall said. I nodded and sat on the bed with all of them. 
"I still can't believe she wants me on the show." I mumbled. 
The boys laughed and all told me not to worry. 
"So..." I said. 
"So..." They all repeated. I laughed lightly and leaned against Harry. 


Harry's POV
Char was in an amazing mood for some reason. Usually we are never able to do what she let us do in the bathroom and she kept laughing. Liam said something funny and I held in my laugh just to hear Char's. 
"Time to go!" Zayn yelled walking down the stairs. Char stood and waited for me. 
When all the others were out I walked over to her and kissed her, "You look amazing."
She blushed and buried her face in my neck gently kissing me there. I chuckled and walked down with her. We all jumped into the Tahoe and drove to LA to meet up with Ellen Degeneres. 

"Hey!" She greeted us when we got there. 
"Hi!" Niall exclaimed happily, hugging her. She embraced all of us, lastly Char. She held her at arms length and said, "Lovely. Really just pretty." 
Char's cheeks were filled with red and she said thank you quietly.
"Char? Why're you being shy?" Liam laughed, nudging her forward. 
Char straightened out and introduced herself to Ellen. 
"Nice to meet you sweetie. Boys you know where your dressing room is, I'm gonna show Char around." Ellen said wrapping an arm around Char's waist. She winced slightly but no one except me noticed. 
"She isn't sharing with us?" I sighed, slightly upset. 
"Nope! She's a lady and needs her own space." Ellen laughed, taking Char away. I sighed and walked with the other boys to our room. 

"What's wrong?" Zayn asked. 
"I hurt her. Yesterday... Twice." I stuttered. 
"She could've been hurt worse by that guy." Liam shrugged. 
"Yeah but she now has a massive bruise on her side and another on her hip." I sighed putting my head in my hands. 
"She put herself in between you and him. Char isn't stupid she knew what was gonna happen." Niall said. 
"She did it so you wouldn't look even worse to the paps." Louis said. I figured as much so I just nodded. 
"Wait... Her hip?" Zayn asked. 
"We got a little... Rough." I struggled to find words. 
They laughed and patted my back. 


There was a knock on the door a few minutes later. 
I ran to get it incase it was Char. I opened the door to find her mid knock. Picking her up, I kissed her with enthusiasm.
"Whoa I was only gone for a little." She giggled. I smiled and kissed her again. 
"Hey Princess." Louis waved to her. 
"Hey Lou, Ni, Liam, and Zayn." Char smiled. I put her down on the couch and sat next to her. 
"We heard about your rough play time with Haz yesterday." Niall winked. Char blushed bright red and glared at me. I smiled sheepishly. 
"Are you ready to go on?" I asked. 
She thought for a second, grinned, and nodded. 
"I'm sitting next to you." I whispered into her ear. 
"I was hoping you'd say that." She sighed.
"I call sitting next to Char!" Niall and Louis screamed at the same time. They did rock paper scissor shoot, Louis winning two out of three. 
"Princess!!" He screamed. Char giggled and rested her head on my shoulder. 

"On in ten, go get mics please." A person said from outside the door. Char and all of us got our microphones put on then walked out to Ellen.
