Love always has it's ways of working, but it usually comes with a price..............


32. Gone.



Char's POV
It was September first. School starts next week, but I was honestly too depressed to even think of going. My mom and Annie always brighten my mood, but the second they leave its back to depression. I call Harry every other night but I still can't stand to be away from him. 
He was gone. 
I passed a mirror and sighed. 
He was gone. 
My dirty blonde hair looked grey as did my once beautiful, blue eyes. I put my hair in a messy bun and walked away. My waist was also a problem. I was stick thin with only a bit of muscle stretched over my bones. I was worse than Annie had ever been, and I knew it. It worried my mom and scared Annie, who was perfectly back to normal. 
He was gone. 
I went downstairs for my morning routine, eat, tv, socialize, shower, read, sleep, eat and so on. Socializing isn't the best term... I text my friends but with no emotion. 
Instead of eating I found a note and read it a few times. Well great, I delayed my routine. 
Running errands all day with Annie... Go out and do something, please
It said. I sighed and instantly grew worried. 
What if I hurt myself? 
He was gone. 
I was already so depressed that I probably would... No. I couldn't, I had Annie and my mom. 
But he was gone. 
I wasn't hungry so I skipped breakfast and went to watch tv. 
In the middle of a What Not To Wear I passed out. 


Harry's POV
I couldn't sing, I couldn't sleep, I could barley eat. It was unhealthy and I knew it but I continued acting this way. 
She was gone. 
"Harry, c'mon mate! We gotta get you out. You gotta do something!" Louis said, dragging me out of my bed. 
We were all a bit upset without Char at first, but they grew out of it, unlike me. 
"Sorry it just hurts. I can't do anything without her." I sighed. 
She was gone. 
"You did before and you will now." Zayn said. 
I shrugged, "Back then I didn't know she existed."
They were all worried about me. I guess that they should be but it sometimes annoyed me. 
"Your mum called again... She's really worried." Niall said. 
"She's fine." I mumbled, walking back to my bed. 
I laid down and closed my eyes. I liked sleep, it gave me a chance to be with Char again. 
"We have to do something about this." I heard Liam whisper. 
"Yeah but what?" Zayn said. 
I assumed that the boys shrugged. 
I wanted to sleep! They should leave me alone. 
She was gone. 
"Harry! We are coming back in one hour! Make yourself presentable!" Louis screamed. I sighed and turned. 


Louis' POV
Harry needs help. 
I think I know who to ask what to do. I wonder though how she's keeping up... She's probably fine, but who knows.
She was gone. 
I went into my room of the flat and took out my laptop. 
I rung for Char hoping she would answer. 
I saw her face and my heart rose and sunk. My little sister, well what we were like anyway. But her eyes and entire face looked depressed. 
"Hey daddy." She said weakly. 
I smiled sadly, "Your in better condition then Harry."
She winced, "Is he that bad? Oh no it's my fault."
I frowned, surprised, "How is this your fault?"
"H-he fell in love with me." She said almost in tears. 
"Aw, Princess! We all did. Just in different ways. Like you are my little sister! It's not your fault at all!" I said. 
She smiled. 
It actually lit up her face a bit. 
"Why'd you call..." She said. 
"Harry won't get up or sing, he barley eats." I sighed. 
"And you think I am doing different? I try to be presentable for Annie and my mom but I crash once they are gone!" Char said shakily. 
I sighed, "I'm sorry, love. I just thought that maybe you had any ideas..." 
She shook her head, "Sorry." Making it clear she was done talking. 
I nodded, "S'okay... Don't be too hard on yourself, Princess!" 
She grinned once more before I logged off. 
"Who was that?" 
I spun around to see Harry in the doorway of my room. 
I didn't even notice him. 
"Charlotte." I shrugged, not in the mood to argue. 
She was gone. 
"And why were you talking to her?" He asked. 
"I was desperate to see if she knew anyway to fix you up." I shrugged again. Harry sighed and sat down.
"I'm sorry. I just-- it's too hard knowing that I probably could have stayed, that she wanted me to, but I left. And I have no clue when I'm going to see her again... In person." He said almost crying. 
I patted his back, "You'll be alright."


Char'a POV
I was just talking with Louis! That was the happiest I've been in a while. 
Harry's shit like me? I couldn't believe it. I sighed and got up. 
He was gone. 
I changed into a sweatshirt and running shorts and grabbed my iPhone. A nice run might calm me down... 
He was gone. 
I ran about my house, straightening things and frowning. 
I froze when I opened the knife drawer. So many. Sharp. They could make me feel again, who cares if it was pain or love! I wanted to feel something. 
My Curly. 
He was gone. 
The one person I have ever loved. 
I reached for a small knife and stared at it. 
"He's gone, Char!" I screamed, tightening my grip. 
"He's gone." I sighed. 
"Gone." I cried. 
I was falling apart. 
Why not end the chaos now? 
"He wouldn't want you to do this." I whispered, pulling the knife away from myself and dropping it. 
The sound of it clanging against the hardwood floor. 
He wouldn't want me to hurt myself. I owed him that much. 
I plugged in my ear buds and left the house, an attempt to settle my thoughts. 

A knock on the door woke me up. I turned and looked at the clock. It was three am! I sighed and went up to get it. 
I opened it to find a man in a suit standing in the pouring rain. 
"Erm- come in!" I said awkwardly. 
He smiled and sat on the couch. 
"Char, I'm your family's lawyer." He said, shaking my hand. 
Oh god. What the fuck happened.
"I realize that you don't know yet but your mother and sister passed away this afternoon in a car crash." He continued.  
I had the urge to scream but I just wiped away my tears and nodded. 
Of course. Another thing to ruin my life. 
Little Annie who was barely six. 
"I'm sorry for your loss. But you are the legal owner of this house, all the bank accounts, the cars, and well everything else. Here is a list. Again, I'm sorry for your loss." He sighed before walking out the door. 
I broke down crying before I could do anything else. 
He was gone. 
Annie was gone. 
Mommy was gone.
Daddy was gone. 
I was utterly and completely alone. 

I wiped my tears, sniffled, and began planning the funeral. 
It would be in one day. I needed to get it over with. 


Day of funeral:
It was the saddest day of my life, but I didn't cry. 
It was the most angry I have ever felt, but I didn't scream. 
I felt like all the happiness had been taken away, but I didn't let it show. 

After cleaning up and saying goodbyes I went home. 
I had a huge bag packed and a bunch of money hooked up to all three of my credit cards. I grabbed my stuff and ran out the door into the misty rain before I had the chance to think of what just happened.
