Chapter 12

***HARRY***

I sat down opposite Natalie, picking up my menu, I wasn't reading it though, I was discreetly watching Natalie as she picked up her own. I don't understand why she's acting all scared again, she's so confusing. "Hi, um what drinks would you like" the waitress asked appeared, a pen and a pad of paper. Quickly I looked back down at my menu, ordering the first random drink I saw. "I'll just have water thanks" Natalie answered. The waitress nodded her head and turned around.

My eyes lock on to Natalie's for a moment "What do you want" I ask referring to the menu as I put it down on the table. "I'm not really hungry" she replies. That's bullshit, she said she was hungry in the car, I must have done something without knowing it. "What have I done" I ask with a sigh, our eyes met for a moment before she looked away. "N-nothing" she mumbled looking down at her lap. If nothing's wrong then why is she acting like this. "Whatever" I slammed my hand down on the table angrily, making Natalie flinch slightly.

"Here you go" The waitress returned again, putting down My drink in front of me and then placing the large jug of water in the centre of the table between Natalie and I. A glass was placed down in front of Natalie before she straightened her back out and raised her pen to her note pad "Are you ready to order yet".

I looked at Natalie, to see if she wanted to order yet "Just order for me" She mumbled slumping down in my chair, pulling out her phone. I rolled my eyes and looked up at the waitress "Not yet" I shook my head, turning my attention back to the moody female in front of me. I stared at her, trying to figure out why she was acting like this. Maybe she's on her period.

"What" She snapped, putting her phone away, giving me a glare. "I don't understand you, I'm trying to work you out" I replied calmly, continuing to stare at her while she continued with her glare. She is really starting to piss me off now "I thought we were on good terms" I growl, clenching my fists.

Natalie lets out a sigh as she opens her mouth to speak "I-it's just...I'm...You...Adam. don't worry" She tried to explain, but she couldn't get it out. At the mention of Adam's name, my blood started to boil. Cautiously Natalie reached across the table and placed her smaller hand over my clenched fist. Natalie's gentle touch immediately calmed me, gently she uncurled my fist, linking our fingers together. A smile curled at my lips as I looked down out our joined hands, I like the way it feels when she touches me.

We sat there for quite some time, just looking at our hands. "I need to use the loo" Natalie announced pushing my chair out, snapping me out of my little trance. "Nooo" I whined, clutching onto her hand, I don't want her to leave. "Don't worry, I'm coming back" She giggled. I pulled her down to my face, pressing a quick kiss to her pink lips "Don't be too long". I held onto her hand until it became out of reach, My eyes following her to the bathroom. She looked so good in that dress.

I was about to look away, when something caught my eye, actually more like someone. He was just entering the restaurant, a smug look on his face as he approached me. So he was the one that didn't get caught. My hands curled back up into fists as I roughly pushed my chair out, standing to my full height.

"What do you want" I growled, staring at the male opposite me. A malicious grin curled up at his lips, I wanted to punch him right there, but I willed myself not to in front of all these people. "Oh, ya know just looking for Someone to fuck". I knew exactly what he meant, he was looking for Natalie. "Leave her alone" I snarled through gritted teeth. "We can share" he smirked at me. "Lets take this outside" I glared, slipping my iPhone out of my pocket and putting it on the table so Natalie knew I hadn't just left.

Adams smirk faltered slightly, I already knew he was scared of me. Adam. I walked confidently towards the closest exit I saw, turning back to look at Adam. He was still in the exact same spot I had left him. "Coming Buddy" I asked stepping out into a dark alleyway.

Walking down it, waiting for Adam to catch up. I heard his footsteps close behind me, turning just in time to duck a punch. His arm swung through thin air, missing my head by inches. I'm getting into a bad habit of having my back to him that's the second time I've nearly been punched in the back of my head.

"Don't go anywhere near Natalie, leave her alone" I hissed focussing on Adam who had his fists ready to deflect a punch if I sent him one. "Why not, you don't own her" he replied laughing a little bit "You can't even get her into bed, judging by the way your still trying to entice her". Anger seethed through me, it's not even like that anymore. "Back off adam" I spoke through gritted teeth, it was along all my strength not to go and punch him in the face right now.

"I bet I could get her into bed before you" he laughed maliciously at me. "She's mine, I won't let you touch her" I spat. "I'm going to fuck her tonight".

That's when I lost my calm composure. "DON'T EVER TOUCH HER AGAIN" I yelled taking a step towards Adam, raising my fists. "SHE SAID SHE WASN'T EVEN YOURS" Adam shouted, taking a few steps away from me. "WHETHER SHE'S MINE OR NOT YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO TOUCH HER OR TO BREAK INTO MY HOUSE YOU BASTARD" I ran forward, smashing my fist hard into his jaw. Adam stumbled back slightly from the blow.

"YOU LITTLE SHIT! IM GOING TO GET YOU AND YOUR BITCH" Adam yelled, trying to send a punch to my gut, but I caught his wrist and smashed my fist into his face. "DON'T CALL HER A BITCH".blood poured from his nose I drew my fist back again, ready to punch him again when I heard a scream"HARRY! STOP".

I turned my head to see a slim female moving towards us "Natalie" I asked in confusion, lowering my fist, she wasn't meant to find me, she was meant to think I went for a walk. Distracted, I didn't see Adams fist coming at the side of my head. As I fell backwards An ear piercing scream echoed throughout the alley.

I hit the ground hard, feeling disorientated and stunned, everything was spinning. I lay there for a minute, regaining my concentration as I stood up, my fists immediately punching at Adam as hard as I could. My vision was blurred though and I was finding it hard to focus on Adams fists.

"GO HOME SLUT" Adam suddenly yelled dodging one of my clumsy swings and ducking away. I looked to where he had gone, just in time to see Natalie stumble backwards, landing on my backside. Adam stooped over her in an intimidating way.

"GET BACK" I lunged forward grabbing Adam the collar, pulling him away from Natalie and swinging him round into a wall. Adam got back to his feet almost straight away charging at me. "BOTH OF YOU STOP" Natalie screamed at us, but I couldn't, If I stopped Adam wouldn't and I'd only get more beat up.

Natalie remained silent while Adam and I continued our punch up, I had to shake my head every so often so I could see clearly, that punch that went to the side of my head has done some damage. "YOU KNOW WHAT, I DON'T CARE, GO FUCKING KILL EACHOTHER, I DON'T GIVE A SHIT, AND HARRY, I NEVER WANT TO SEE YOU AGAIN" Natalie's voice yelled at the two of us. I looked over at her only to see her running off into the darkness. "NATALIE" I called after her, she turned to look back at me quickly and at the same moment a large fist hit me square in the face. My vision clouded over as I fell back, hitting the back of my head on a step, everything went black.

I opened my eyes, my head was throbbing and my body was sore all over. I felt a light tugging at my arm "Natalie" I asked looking to my left hopefully, but to my disappointment it was only the waitress we had before. "Are you alright" The female asked as she helped me sit up. "Have you seen the girl I came here with" I ask frantically, hoping to see her here somewhere. "Yes, I saw her leave with some guy not long ago" the girl replies. Oh no Adams got her. "What did the guy look like" I asked frantically grabbing the girls shoulders. "Um, he was blonde and about her hight" she replied taking my hands off her shoulders. I let out a sigh of relief, Adam is not blonde, maybe it was Niall.

"Your head is bleeding" the girl announced with a tinge of worry in her voice. I lifted my hand to the back of my head, feeling a sticky liquid in my hair. "Um yeah" I mumbled, pushing myself up to my feet. A wave of dizziness washed over me an I had to use the wall to steady myself. "Do you want me to call someone to pick you up" she asked, helping me back down the alley and back into the restaurant. "I'll call one of my friends, I just need to get my phone back off the table" I groaned slightly, my body was so sore. "I took the liberty of picking up your phone, that guy you went outside with was gonna take it" she smiled at me handing me my phone back. "Thanks" I smiled at her, thank god she found it, Adam would have taken it and since I don't have a lock on it because I can never remember the pass code he would have taken Natalie's number, Not that it matters, she hates me. I scrolled through my contacts, tapping on the first name that I knew I could rely on.

"I'll get you some water" the waitress said sitting me down at a table and hurrying off. I put my phone up to my ear, listening to it ring.

"Hey Harry, what's up" Ben's friendly voice greeted me

"Hey, could you do me a favour" I asked hopefully waiting for his response.

"Sure thing, what do you need"

"Well I was kind of unconscious a few minutes ago, I have a bleeding head and I can barely see straight, do you think you could pick me up and maybe get someone to drive my car home" I answered.

"Yeah, I'm with Tori, we'll come get you" he replied kindly.

"Thanks Ben, it means a lot"

 

About ten minutes later, Ben and Tori showed up. "What have you done now Harry" Tori shook her head at me. "I took a certain female out for dinner" I answered sipping on the water the waitress had given me. "Wow, did she do that to your head" Ben asked surprised. "No, Adam turned up and we got in a fight, she ran off and while I was distracted he punched me and I hit my head on a step and knocked myself out" I wince. "That makes sense, I didn't think she was strong enough to injure you" Tori chuckled as she and Ben grabbed me under the arms and hauled me to my feet. We passed the waitress who had helped me on the way out "Thank you" I gave her a pained smile. She nodded her head "No problems".

The two of them basically carried me outside, my vision was blurry and I couldn't even my own feet. "Okay Tors, whose taking this lump and who's taking his car" Ben asked as the passenger door of Bens car was opened and I was sat down inside. "I'll take Harry, I'm scared I'll crash his car and then kill me" Tori jokes. "Okay, I'll see you at his place" Ben gave her a kiss on the cheek before I chucked him my keys.

"What happened to Natalie" Tori asks with a worried look on her face as she gets in the drivers seat. "I don't know, apparently she went home with some blonde guy" I reply shrugging my shoulders. "Do you want me to go to her place and see if she's alright" Tori asked kindly as she started the car up. "No, she said she doesn't ever want to see me again" I say sadly. Tori turns her head to look at me "Usually that means she's just pissed off at you, she does want to see you again, Haz". I shake my head, wincing because shaking my injured head hurts "She hates me". "Harry, she doesn't hate you. She's just pissed, you can go find her and sort out whatever happened or you can wait For her to eventually get so worried about you that she'll Come find you, I'm a girl, trust me on this one" she pats me on the knee as we follow Ben in my car, home. "Girls are weird I muttered, if what Tori says is true, the are honestly screwed up. "Yeah, well so are boys" she laughed. I smiled to myself a bit before I fell into unconsciousness for a second time.

"Harry, Harry" someone was shaking me lightly. "Uh, what" I groaned, opening my eyes to see two worried looking faces looking down at me. "We're back, but we think you might need a hospital" Tori spoke quietly. "I'm fine I pulled myself out of the car, wobbling a bit as I pulled myself to my feet "I just need to lie down".

I pushed past the pair of them and slowly walked up to the front door, walking smack right into it. Falling backwards again. "Harry" Tori shrieked as the two of them helped me back to my feet. "We're taking you to hospital. "No" I pushed there hands away from me. "Yes" Ben argued as I tried to unlock the door, which failed because I dropped my keys. Fuck.

 

 

***TORI***

I watched as Harry dropped his keys, the idiot is so stubborn, were not going to be able to get him to a hospital if he doesn't want to go. While Ben was unlocking the door for Harry, I quickly got my phone out. "Get inside idiot" Ben half dragged Harry inside the house, me following closely behind them, shutting the front door behind me.

My fingers scrolled through my contacts until I found the one I was looking for, pressing the phone to my ear I walked Into the kitchen. While the phone rang I put the jug on and pulled some mugs out of the kitchen cupboard.

"Hello" an upset voice answered the phone.

"Hey Natalie, it's Tori" I spoke into the phone, while putting tea bags into the mugs.

"Hey" she replied quietly, I could tell by the sound of her voice she was upset.

"We have your curly haired boy back inside his house" I told her, knowing from experience that she would be worried even if she was pissed off at him.

"Is he okay" Natalie exclaimed, see, I knew it. Ben walked into the kitchen to the freezer grabbing an ice pack for Harry's head. "Who are you talking to" he asked quietly. 'Natalie' I mouthed. He nodded his head in reply before walking back out to Harry.

"Well, kind of, he's cut his head open and can't see straight, he walked into a door a couple of minutes ago" I replied "He won't let us take him to hospital though, maybe you could talk to him". The jug had boiled and I started pouring the hot water into the mugs.

"No, I just can't deal with him right now" she sobbed. I feel sorry for her, Harry is honestly an idiot.

"It's okay, he's worried about you though" I told her picking up the two mugs in one hand. I carried them out to the boys, Harry was sitting up on the couch with his hand pressing an ice pack to the back of his head. He looked really out of it.

"Can you put him on the phone for a minute" Natalie whispered quietly.

"Yup, hang on" I replied moving the phone from my ear and holding it out to Harry. He looked at me confused "Natalie". In a flash, the phone was snatched from my hand and pressed to his ear. "I'm sorry" he cried into the speaker as I returned to the kitchen to get my own tea.

When I came back, Harry was just staring down at my phone, sadness written all over his face. I glanced at Ben who gave me a confused look.

 

 

***NATALIE***

 

"Do you want me to come in" Niall asked as we pulled up in front of my house. I shook my head "No, I'll be alright, thanks for picking me up" I leaned over the gearstick wrapping my arms around his body in a thankful gesture. "No problems love, If you need anything I'm only a phone call away" he replied hugging me back. "Okay, I'll see you at school tomorrow" I gave him a forced smile as I pulled out of the hug. "Okay, take care love" he gave me a smile as I hopped out of the car giving him a little wave as he drove off down the road.

I turned around and glumly walked up to the front door, pulling out my house keys. I wish I hadn't just left, now I can't stop worrying, even though I'm trying to make myself not believe I care, I just cant. Harry wasn't going to hurt me I finally came to my senses, he was just protecting me from Adam. What if he's lying unconscious in the alleyway, I wish I didn't leave.

I pushed the door open, stepping into the warmth of my house. I had secretly hoped mum would be home, I don't like being alone. But to my dismay she wasn't. I slammed the door behind me angrily, can't she be home for her daughter once in her life. I locked the door and flicked the lights on. The hallway was flooded with light as the bulbs turned on. I walked into the lounge, flicking those lights on too as I went.

Kicking my shoes off I slumped down on the couch grabbing the TV remote pushing the on button. I began sliming through the TV channels, all that seemed to be on was sappy romances like 'Dear John' and 'The notebook'. "I don't want to watch this shit!" I exclaimed, flicking over to the next channel in hope to find something that did not make me want to cry. The sexy face of Matt Smith appeared on screen, Doctor Who! "That's much better" I dropped the remote and curled up on the end of the sofa, alone.

Doctor who kept my mind off Harry, but not entirely, I found myself thinking about him every so often. I keep worrying that he's lying dead somewhere in the ally and that Adams coming after me now.

I jumped in alarm at a loud ringing coming from my pocket. Realising it was only my phone I calmed down, pulling it out checking to see who was calling me, to make sure it wasn't Harry. To my surprise it was Tori, the girl I met at the club with Harry. Thinking about Harry made me want to cry.

 

"Hello" Hello I answered, trying to make my voice as steady as possible, but it still came out shaky.

"Hey Natalie, it's Tori" she spoke in a friendly way.

"Hey" I said quietly, trying my hardest not to cry.

"We have your curly haired boy back inside his house" tori announced, suddenly I felt as though a heavy weight had been lifted of my shoulders, Harry wasn't dead.

"Is he okay" I exclaimed, a little louder then I should have.

There was a long pause, that made me worry, he might be really badly hurt.

"Well, kind of, he's cut his head open and can't see straight, he walked into a door a couple of minutes ago" Tori replied "He won't let us take him to hospital though, maybe you could talk to him".

I can't talk to him, I'm meant to be angry, I'll just start crying, because it's all my fault he got hurt. "No, I just can't deal with him right now" I let out a small sob, quickly covering my mouth to keep anymore in.

"It's okay, he's worried about you though" She told me as the faint sound of clinking mugs together came from the background.

I let out a heavy sigh, I'll just tell him I'm okay and then hang up. 

"Can you put him on the phone for a minute" I whispered quietly.

"Yup, hang on" Tori replied, there was a short amount of shuffling, before I heard his voice "I'm sorry" he cried into the speaker rather loudly. "I don't care, I'm angry with you" I growled "I'm at home just so you know, Niall picked me up".

"Nat, wai-".

I cut him off

"Goodbye Harry" I pressed the end button.

I felt terrible, hanging up on him when he was trying to apologise, but I just don't want to talk right now, I just want to be left alone. I let the tears fall down my cheeks as I lay down on the sofa, letting myself drift off to sleep.

 

 

***HARRY***

 

I stared down sadly at the phone, she just hung up on me, she hates me. I had to go mess it all up, didn't I. Why couldn't I have just stayed at the table and ignored Adam. I felt the eyes of Ben and Tori watching me as I looked down blankly at her name on the screen.

"Harry" Tori says quietly, sitting down on the sofa next to me. I passed her back her phone, playing with my fingers instead. A warm cup was placed between my hands "If you won't let us take you to hospital, drink this then go to bed" she ordered. My fingers closed round the hot mug as I brought it up to my lips, taking a small sip.

The cold ice pack was placed on the large lump on the back of my head by Ben's hand "Don't worry about Natalie mate, she'll come round". A gave them both a fake smile, I couldn't help but feel a little broken inside, I felt something different with Natalie and now I've gone off and messed up.

After I had finished my tea, Ben and Tori helped me up the stairs to my room, where they basically tugged me in acting as though I was five and they were my mum and dad. "We're going to go sleep in the guest room, if your a bit concussed we don't want you being by yourself and becoming unconscious and not waking up" Tori said as she flicked the lights off. "Do you think she'll ever speak to me again" I called before they could leave. "Lets just see what tomorrow will bring" Tori replied wisely. "Goodnight" I mumbled into the pillows as I closed my eyes. "Night Harry" they chorused. I really hope tomorrow does being something good.

Hey hey hey,

This chapter has a lot of POV switches and it's quite short, a bit of a filler I guess. I hope you liked it though, I'm really proud of myself, I've written so much!

Is it just me or does anyone else hate the new wattpad library, mine keeps glitching and I can't team some of my books, fucking annoying. I want them to change the damn thing back.

Anyways, enough with my little rant, if I continue, there could be a whole chapter called Natalia's big rant. I think it's time a shut up and get on with the next chapter.

 

Thanks for reading

 

Stay beautiful

 

I LOVE YOU AND ICE CREAM

 

I'm weird, please ignore me
