Hidden Secrets

Harry and Emily have always been best friends, even when Harry left to fulfill his dream of being a singer but when Harry comes home for the summer will Emily be able to tell him her secret or will it stay hidden forever?


18. Chapter 18



The next morning when I woke up I could hear voices in the kitchen and decided to get out of bed to join them.

“Morning.” I yawn as I sit down on the living room sofa.

“Morning sweetie, do you want anything to eat?” My dad asks and I shake my head, I wasn’t really hungry.

“You planning on speaking to Harry today?” I jump in shock at Gemma’s voice from behind me.

“Uh I don’t know…” I sigh.

“Em, you need to just get it over and done with. The sooner the better.” She says taking a seat beside me. I knew she was right but I was scared to talk to him.

“I guess you’re right, where is he anyway?” I ask noticing he wasn’t around anywhere.

“He went down to the beach early this morning, said he’d be there for a few hours. You could probably catch him down there.” Gemma informs me.

I debate with myself for a minute deciding whether or not I should speak to him now or later.

“I think I’m going to go talk to him, I don’t really want to do it here.” I tell her and a smile appears on her face.

“Good!” She says as I get off the sofa to get changed.



Once I’m ready I tell everyone I’m going to the beach and take one of the cars we had hired for our holiday, it felt like a long drive to the beach even though in reality it was only ten minutes.

As I walked along the quiet beach I continued to replay what I would say to him in my mind but nothing sounded right.

 When I looked up I saw him sat on a rock further up the beach and take a deep breath preparing myself for what was going to take place next.

“Harry?” I say quietly as I approach him, his head turns to me.

“Oh uh hey, I didn’t think you’d come down here.” He says moving up slightly on the rock allowing me to sit down.

“Gemma told me you were here and I kind of need to talk to you…” I explain.

“Yeah I’ve been meaning to speak to you too.” He says and my heart stops for a second, did he already know about my secret?

“You go first.” I say, not wanting to tell him just yet.

There were a few moments of silence before he speaks again, his eyes never met mine though, instead they focused on the waves crashing against the rocks in front of us.

“I don’t know how to say this,” He begins and I focus on him, he was fiddling with his hands and I instantly knew he was nervous which made me just as nervous as he was. “So I’m just going to tell you straight and I don’t blame you if you don’t want to speak to me again.” He continues, I had an idea in my mind of what he was going to say but now I wasn’t sure… “Over the past few weeks I’ve spent with you it’s been…different.” He begins.

“How?” I push him after he stops speaking again.

Finally he looks up to me and meets my gaze with his beautiful green eyes.

“This is going to sound so stupid.” He shakes his head, letting out a small laugh as he turns his head to the floor, “But I think…I think I kind of like you.” He says making my heart warm and my insides tingle, a small smile appears on my lips, “And I know you don’t feel the same way, I know that but I just had to tell you. I’m sorry if this ruins our whole friendship.” He looks up at me again and he gives me a confused look after seeing my grin. “What?” He asks.

“I already know Harry, do you think I’m stupid?” I ask whilst laughing.

“H-How?” He stutters.

“Besides the other boys telling me over and over again? Me sleeping at Lukes, The pedalos, the beach the other day…” I begin to list the different events that had taken place but he shuts me up.

“Okay okay.” He lets out a laugh.

“But why are you so happy about it? I thought you’d be all pissed off.” Harry asks.

I chew on my bottom lip considering telling him, well I might as well since we’re already having this conversation. “Because I might like you too?” I say but it comes out more like a question and I could feel my cheeks blush.

For a moment we just look at one another, a smile is on his lips and I’m sure a big grin was on mine too but it disappears when Harry begins to lean into me. I soon feel his soft lips against mine and suddenly everything is a blur, the worst part was that I was kissing him back and I liked it.

“I-I can’t Harry…I’m sorry.” I stutter, pulling away remembering why I was here in the first place.

“Shit, sorry i-“ Harry looks away but I stop him from rambling on about how sorry he was, I should be the one saying sorry.

“No it’s not that Harry, well it is kind of but I need to tell you something too…” I begin, now it’s my turn to become nervous.

“What? It’s not that you have a boyfriend is it? I’m such an idiot.” He talks again and I laugh.

“No no, I don’t have a boyfriend. It’s nothing like that actually…”

“What is it then?” He turns to me.

Well there’s no going back now…


Harry’s P.O.V

“What is it then?” I ask, relief floods over me knowing she didn’t have a boyfriend, I wouldn’t be able to deal with it if she did.

“You’re going to hate me after this and I know you’re going to be mad and I don’t blame you for that. You deserved to know from the beginning.” She turns away from me, shaking her head and I become nervous, what did I deserve to know?

“Emily…” I say quietly as tears fall from her eyes and I just wanted to comfort her, hug her and tell her not to cry but I knew if I did I’d never find out what she had to say.

“Harry I’m so so sorry,” She turns to me, tears continuing to fall down her cheeks. “For the past year I-I’ve been in and out of hospital.” She says and my heart drops.

“And the reason for that is for the past year I’ve been battling…cancer.” She says, turning away from me, “I know I should’ve told you and you deserved to know but you were always away and so I didn’t know when to and whenever I got the chance to tell you I couldn’t. Gemma kept telling me to tell you but-“

“Gemma knew?” I blurt out, not meaning to say that aloud.

“Y-yeah and your mum and Robin…” She looks at me.

“How could you tell them and not me? How come they didn’t tell me?” I ask her, trying to stay calm but I knew my voice was raising and I was stood up.

“I…I told them not to tell you.” She explains, “I wanted to be the one to tell you Harry, not them. I didn’t want you to get angry with me so I decided I would tell you but I never knew how hard it would be to do that.” She cries but I just walk away from her, pacing back and forth, my hands running through my hair.

“A-Are you angry?” She asks after a few moments and I stop in my tracks and look at her.

“No.” I tell her and she lets out a deep breath, “I’m not angry Emily, I’m upset and disappointed. How couldn’t you tell me? I’m your fucking best friend Emily! You tell everyone else but me and I’m left out of this whole secret like an idiot!” I raise my voice at her. I begin to walk away from her before I become angry and do something I’ll regret.

“Where are you going?” She cries.

“I don’t know, anywhere but here.”
