The one that got away

I'm Niall Horan's SISTER? Then why did he...

[Completed story]


43. The L word

*Vanessa’s POV*

Without thinking I walked him to my apartment. Arms crossed the whole time, staring at the ground, watching every step I took. I would wipe away the occasional tear because I didn’t want him to see me cry. We got to the door and I fumbled with the key trying to unlock it. I walked inside and he followed. I turned to face him giving him a “go on” look. He sighed.

“I know you probably don’t want to hear this, but I have to tell you.”

I kept my gaze on him.

“Vanessa, the reason I made you come to see us was because I wanted to see you.”

“And you had to make up this messed up story?!” I yelled.

“I’m sorry, but I knew you wouldn’t be in a rush to come if not.”

“And why did I have to be in a rush?” I muttered

He took a deep breath. “So that I could tell you something I wanted to say in person.”

She stared at me unsure. “Go on..?”

*Harry’s POV*

“I’m in love with you.” I blurted out. My eyes grew as big as hers. She stood there in shock and I waited for her to react in any sort of way. I was starting to feel uncomfortable. She finally moved. She looked at the floor and smiled. I reached my hand under her chin and held it up.

“What you thinking about beautiful?” I said staring into her eyes.

She shrugged. “Someone actually cares about me, loves me.” She choked.

I took her into my arms, tucking her head in my neck. I kissed the top of her head repeatedly, so relieved that I could finally hold her in my arms. That she didn’t hate me. I didn’t want this moment to ever end. I kissed her forehead. Then her ear. Then her jawline. And her neck. She threw her head back as I trailed kisses to her collarbone. I pushed her over to the island in her kitchen and pressed my lips to hers. Her arms around my neck, I slipped mine under her bum and lifted her onto the table. She kissed me repeatedly and then kissed my neck. I moaned. “I love you so much.” I whispered into her neck. She didn’t say anything. Just kissed my lips passionately. I moved her t-shirt to reveal her shoulder, and kissed it. She was so soft. Being a tad wild, she bit my lip. I pulled away and laughed rolling my eyes playfully and crashed my lips back on hers. Wanting to play as well, I grabbed her bum and she yelped. She laughed but when I leaned in to kiss her again, she pulled back. I tried again just in case. Same reaction.

“Something wrong?” I asked concerned.

She looked down playing with her hands. “It feels like I’m cheating on Louis.” She almost whispered.

I sighed.  Ouch. “Uh.” I said awkwardly, scratching the back of my head. Feeling a tad annoyed that she ruined the moment I didn’t think twice before I blurted out. “You’re not even the second thought on his mind and you’re here worrying about him. Wow.”

She cupped my face. “I’m sorry.” She shot her head to the side as a bucket of tears slid down her face. She took her hands off my face and hid her own.

I shut my eyes regretting what I’d said. “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean it that way- I”

She hopped off of the counter and marched over to a tissue box and pulled out a few. Dabbing her cheeks and eyes. The amount of tears she had shed today only, by all things I’d done or said was unbelievable. And I couldn’t help but feel really bad. I walked over to her and lay my head on her shoulder from behind. She played with my curls and sniffled.

“It’s ok. I’m fine.” She attempted a smile.

“Vaness, I didn’t mean it.” I tried to soothe.

She shook her head. “No its ok. I know he doesn’t care anyway.” You could tell that with the wrong words, she would break down any second.

I bit my lip and stared at the ground.

“Harry why are you here anyways?”

“My uh mom, she got married.”

“ long are you staying?”

*Vanessa’s POV*

“Erm, about a week still? I think.” He shrugged.

I nodded quietly. He cupped my face. I cupped my own face by placing my hands over his. I kissed him softly. A tear rolled down my cheek as I did so, making my lips taste like salt water. I stared deeply into his eyes before stuttering. “I, I think you should go. I’ll see you soon. Text me if you want.” I pushed him gently towards the door. He walked as far as he could with me standing still and him holding my hand until he let go and walked towards the door. He opened it and slid out, looking at me one last time before leaving. I gave him a quick smile and as soon as I thought he was gone. I thought I would break down into tears but I tried my best to contain myself. Feeling disgusting, I peeled off my clothes and walked into the shower. Letting the warm water hit my face and my body, I began to think about everything, and there, I collapsed into sobs. 


I hope all those Harressa shippers out there enjoyed ;)
