Long Lost Twin

My name is Lizzie, my Mum recently died from cancer so I was forced to live with my aunt. That also meant moving schools and making new friends. I did have a Dad but I never knew him. Mum did, they split when I was born. He took my twin and Mum took me.

9. Chapter 9: The Truth Shows Its Ugly Head

One Month Later- 

Harry treated me right after that. He text me more frequently and didn't stand me up on a date again. One thing that made me happy is the night he told me he loved me. Stupidly I love him too. I know he will hurt me but I have to give him a chance. Liam tried talking me out of it though but gave up when he didn't have a good enough excuse why not to. Occasionally Harry would disappear from chemistry and would go all night without texting me. It only led me to get more suspicious of what was going on. I felt like something bad was going to happen. My trust for Harry was shrinking. I didn't trust that he was telling me the whole truth. 

My Mum always told me that if a boyfriend wasn't truthful then the relationship shouldn't carry on. That only left me with one question. Should I dump Harry? 

I drove to school and got there just before the bell went. In English I got passed a note with my name on. 

Elizabeth Payne  

I opened the letter. What I saw wasn't something I expected to see. There were print outs of conversations and pictures. There was a picture of Harry lying naked in a bed. The conversations were all dated in the past month. The first one started the day Harry lied about the meeting. 

Wednesday 8th September 2013

Harry: I love you, Kathy. When should we hook up again?

Kathy: Tonight? You're great in bed ;) 

Harry: Ahaha. I feel bad that I used Lizzie. I wanted to keep you away because I thought you were bad news. 

Kathy: Don't feel bad. What's past is past. 

Harry: Yeah. 

Saturday 11th September 2013

Kathy: Hey babe. You sure missing a date with Lizzie was a good idea? 

Harry: Yeah. It was worth it. 

Kathy: Good. Sex again tomorrow? 

Harry: Sure thing, babe ;) 

Tuesday 14th September 

Harry: We have to meet up less. Liz is suspecting things. I need to make things up with her. 

Kathy: When will you dump her for me? I want you to be mine, I don't like sharing. 

That was when I stopped reading. Tears were pouring down my face. He had been having sex with Kathy for a month now. I felt betrayed. I stood up and ran out of the classroom. I dreaded chemistry. I just had to endure it. I couldn't. I couldn't go. I felt like my heart had broken in two. I forgave him and look where it got me. I sent Liam a text telling him to meet me in the library. He had a free lesson so he wasn't missing anything. 

"What do you wan . . . What happened?" Liam looked at me in shock. I passed him the letter with everything in it. "Oh no. I thought something was going on. I just didn't know what. He told us there was nothing going on and he wouldn't hurt you like that." Liam pulled me into a hug and I cried into his chest. 

"I was stupid." I sobbed. 

"No. He was just a jerk." Liam assured me. Liam kept the letter and told me to go home and sort myself out. 

I fought tears all the way home and as soon as I parked on the drive the tears finally won. I stumbled my way into the house and up into my room. I hated missing school but there was no way I could do anything. I told Jess everything even though I knew she wouldn't reply until later. 

Liam's POV - 

"You asshole!" I screamed into Harry's face. I threw the letter at him. "You stay away from my sister." and I punched his face as I said it. Harry flinched and opened the letter and stared at it in shock. 

"I'm sorry." He mumbled. 

"Bullshit." I snarled at him and stormed off. That was Kathy's big plan. She won. I hope they're both happy for each other. Later I will make sure that Liz breaks up with that asshole. She deserves better. 

Louis caught up with me after school before I got into my car. 

"El broke up with me." He told me. "It's fine though, I was going to dump her anyway. You know how things are between us. Long distance relationships never work." 

I smiled at him. "You deserve better. Just find someone who lives closer this time." Louis laughed. 

"Sure." He replied and I climbed into my car and switched on the engine. First stop: Liz's house. 

Lizzie's POV - 

I sat on the sofa and cried. I wish I died instead of Mum. I hated feeling heart broken. I cried for a good half an hour and fell asleep. I woke up a few hours later when the doorbell rang. I looked through the peep-hole and saw Liam standing there. 

"Hi." He said. "I punched Harry." 

"You what!" I choked and I hugged Liam. "Thanks!" 

"It's no problem. It felt good. Please break up with him. Don't give him another chance." Liam begged.

"Okay. I won't. I don't want anything to do with him anyway." I replied. I pulled my phone out and sent him a text. 

Me: It's over. 

I know breaking up via text is cruel  but he deserves it. He cheated on me! He lied to me and used me! 

"Done." I told him. 

"Thanks. One day you will find someone who treats you right." Liam promised. "Just please don't go back out with him." 

"I promise." 

1 Week Later - 

The boys never forgave Harry. Well, not yet. He still sat with them and Kathy was at his side every second of the day. I felt jealous, which is stupid. I have no choice but to see them together everyday because I sit with Paula and Liam. Louis occasionally talks to me and checks if I'm okay. Everyone knows I'm not okay even when I say I am. After everything that has happened in the past year there is no way I will be okay. 

"So, how's life?" Louis asked me. He was desperately trying to make conversation. 

"Same old, you?" I replied.

"I have been better." He said with a shrug. He then gave me a smile and a quick wink that caused the blood in my body to rush to my cheeks.

He leaned in closer to me and whispered in my ear "You look beautiful when you blush." 

"Thanks." I mumbled. I looked down at the table. 

"Have you got lunch?" Paula asked and I shook my head. She rolled her eyes and sighed. "You need to start eating again! I thought I fixed your eating issues!" 

"I just don't feel hungry." I mumbled and shrugged. Paula understood what I was going through but she was desperately trying to get me to eat. 

"Do you wanna see a movie with me this weekend?" Louis asked.

"Sure."  Why not? I could have fun and move on. Louis was my friend, maybe it would make Harry jealous but would I then be using Louis. I couldn't use him, he was so nice. He's be nice to me since I found out everything about Harry and Kathy. I still couldn't believe that he would hurt me so much like that. I felt stupid that I believed that I meant something to him. All I would ever be to him is another notch on his belt; along with all of those other girls he used. 

"This Saturday?" He asked and I nodded. "I'll pick you up at two then." 

"Okay." I gave him a small smile that was forced. I don't smile any more, they're always forced. I try my best to seem happy so I don't drag others down with me.

The bell rang and I walked to the car park. I always went home at lunch, I had no reason to stay in school. 

When I got home I checked my phone.

Harry: Are you trying to make me jealous? ;) 

I deleted the text and ignored him. I never reply to his texts, he always texts me now. Sometimes more than when we were actually dating. Ugh. He's unbelievable! Always sending mixed messages! I haven't spoken to him the day I ended things with him; he's always trying to get me to talk to him though and I don't know why. So he can use me some more? Maybe.
