4. Meeting Each Other

[Elizabeth's POV] *A week later*

"The best kind of love is with the most unexpected person at the most unexpected time."

I was staying in a hotel until I ran out of money to pay rent and I'm now sitting at the park bench once again thinking of a place to stay. I'm running out of money! And I got fired from my job yesterday. I have to go find a new job but I'm so tired of walking, that's all I've been doing! But I pull myself off the park bench and throw my bag back onto my back and start to walk down the street. As I'm walking down a dark alley I see a person coming towards me. What if it's Logan? What if it's a murderer who wants to kill the next person he sees, me. What if it's a rapist who will pick me up over there shoulder and take me to their nasty, dirty place and rape me? My breathing starts to get heavy and my knees begin to wobble, my walking gets slower and I watch the figure get closer and closer to me. All these scary thoughts rush through my mind and I start to panic. The man is now standing in front of me, "Hey, are you okay? Do you need help?"

"I'm o-o-okay. P-Please d-don't touch m-me. Don't h-hurt m-me." I manage to get out of my mouth. The man let's go of my arm.

"You don't sound okay." The strange man says. I haven't made eye contact with him yet, too scared. I stare down at my feet.

I slowly look up at him, he has curly hair but I can't make out any facial features since it's dark in this alley, "P-Please j-just leave me a-alone." I stutter. And at the worst timing in the world, my stomach growls.

The man laughs, "Hey, let's go get something to eat? I'll pay."

I think about it for a minute, "Okay." I say quietly as I look back down, staring at the ground.  He touches my arm and I jump moving away from him fast.

"I'm sorry!" He says with worry in his voice.

[Harry's POV]

I was walking down the alley, a short cut to Nandos, I saw a girl. When I walked up to her, her breathing is heavy and she is walking really slow. I asked her if she was okay or if she needed help. She seemed really scared, or in a panic attack and she was about to cry. I didn't even touch her and she asked for me to not touch her. She obviously thought I was a murderer or rapist or some disgusting guy like that, which I'm not. She really didn't sound okay, she could barely talk, she was stuttering too. She seemed to scared to even look up at me but when she did, she was just beautiful but her face was a little dirty and her hair wasn't perfect, she had no make up on but she was still beautiful to me. She asked me to leave her alone and I was gonna but then her stomach growled and I couldn't help but laugh and asked her if she wanted to get something to eat, I'd pay for it. And it seemed like forever but she finally responded with a quiet okay. I touched her arm to guide her out just to be nice and it seemed like she jumped six feet off the ground moving away from me like I was going to eat her. "I'm sorry!" I said now worried. Why is she so scared?

"It's fine. L-Let's go p-please." She begs.

We start to walk out of the alley and once we did she looked up at me and we made eye contact for about ten seconds but in those ten seconds it felt like she was looking into my heart and soul, like she was trying to read me. She has such beautiful brown eyes. But then she looks away and when were literally five feet away from Nandos is when tons of paparazzi decide to show up scaring the shit out of her, she jumps surprised by all the flashes of lights. I quickly move, walking to Nandos and she just stands there staring at the cameras like a deer in the middle of the road when it sees headlights in the distance. I grab her arm to pull her inside Nandos and yet she pulls away giving me a don't-touch-me look and I give her a get-the-fuck-inside look which gets her to move slowly like a turtle inside. She doesn't bother to ask why there were cameras she just walks up to the counter for food. I follow and she doesn't speak so I just order something hoping she will eat it. We go sit at a table and I hand her the food. She slowly eats it. "So what is you're name?" I ask.

"Elizabeth." She begins but to my surprise she continues, "But y-you can just c-call me Liz or L-Lizzy if you w-want to." She stutters again. Now I'm wondering if stuttering is just a problem for her or if she is just so scared. Then she continues, "What is y-your name?" Less stutter that time.

"Harry." I like how she doesn't know that I'm famous. Just cause she's not screaming in my face or anything. I continue, "But you can call me whatever you want." I say with a cheeky smile. She smiles but I can tell it's fake, "Do you mind if I ask you why your so scared of me?" She looks down at the table and I quickly say, "Never mind, you don't have to."

"No. It's okay. I'm just scared of men after my last boyfriend." She says without one stutter which makes me smile like a complete idiot but then I realize what she just said and my smile quickly disappears.

"Scared of men? Well what exactly did your last boyfriend do to you?" I ask now curious. Her breathing gets heavy again and I quickly say, "No no no! Love if you don't want to explain then please don't. I don't want to make you!" I say fast.

She nods her head and then says, "Thanks for understanding. It's just s-scary." I start to think of the things her boyfriend could have done to her and it makes me angry that people will do something horrible and scare a nice girl like her. She looks up at me and says, "I'll never fall in love.... again." And I look at her surprised about what she just said.

After she's done eating we decide to leave, "Thank you." She says not looking at me. A couple things I learned about her was, she doesn't like to be touched, she doesn't make eye contact very much, her name is Elizabeth, she is scared of men because of her boyfriend and she said she will never fall in love... again. Interesting girl, makes me just want to talk to her all day and get to know her.

"So where do you live? I'll walk you home." I say looking at her and then I noticed that she's crying. I so badly want to hug her but I can't, she doesn't like to be touched. She looks up at me, tears just streaming down her face. "Oh no! Please don't cry! Why are you crying? I just want to hug you but I can't and-"

She laughs a little and cracks a smile while looking into my eyes, "Hug me. I want to be hugged." She cries out and tears pour down her face, then smile faded. He hug her.

[Elizabeth's POV]

He asked me where I live and that's when I broke, I couldn't stop the tears from coming down. "Oh no! Please don't cry! Why are you crying? I just want to hug you but I can't and-"

I let out a smile laugh, he's so nice. He knows that I don't like to be touched, afraid that he will hurt me and then to hear him say that he want to hug me but he "Can't" Makes me crack a little smile. "Hug me. I want to be hugged." I cry out letting even more tears pour down my dirty face. I haven't been hugged in forever and that's truly what I desperately wanted.

So he hugs me, wrapping his strong arms around me. I feel safe in his hugs even though I just met him. He is a nice stranger though, hugging me, paying for my food, know that I don't want to be touched. He's a nice guy, I haven't met a nice guy in a while. "Can you please tell me why you're crying? I can help." He whispers in my ear sending chills down my spine.

I pull away from his hug and wipe away my tears, making eye contact with him I finally say, "I don't have I home. I have no family, no friends, and ran out of money for a hotel. I stayed at my boyfriends house but then I ran away and-" I quickly stop myself, shit now he will ask why I ran away.

"Why did you run away?" He asks.

I look at him, trying to read him. Trying to see if he just wants something out of this, something for helping me. "You're just a stranger I met an hour ago and I hugged you. Honestly I felt safe in your hug, in your strong arms but your just a stranger. I don't know you, I can't tell you everything that has happened to me. You pay for my food and thank you for that, I appreciate it but please. I need to go find a job, I need to get money so I can pay for food and a shelter. I have to go, I can't even trust you. I can't trust any man." I say quietly as I walk away from him and down the sidewalk.

[Harry's POV]

I thought about everything that she just said to me, I know that I'm a stranger but I'm a nice stranger who wants to help. I run after her, she's walking fast. I jump out in front of her remembering that she doesn't like to be touched, stopping her from walking. "Please. Come back to my place, I can make you tea or something and we can sit down and talk. You can get to know me, I can get you to trust me. I'll be your friend, I'll help you find a job later or tomorrow. I'll give you money, you can crash in the guest room at my place." I say fast then waiting for her answer.
