The new guy

"Oh that guy? He’s new. He hasn’t talked to anyone since he got here. Guess he’s shy. Oh shit he’s looking turn around." "You know what I heard? That he’s crazy. People say he talks to himself." "Maybe he’s not that bad you guys. I’m going to go talk to him." … "Hi, I’m Katie." He gave me a smile that sent shivers through my body. "Hi, I’m Harry"

14. Chapter 13

I woke up the next morning still thinking about what Harry’s Mom had said.
Maybe I was over thinking it. I love Harry and no one was going to tear us apart.
When I was eating breakfast, someone knocked on the door.
I opened it to find the same 2 police men that had interviewed me a while ago.
"Well hello Mrs.Payne. Hope we didn’t wake you."
"No you didn’t. Come on in."
"Thanks. We just want to ask you a few more questions."
"Shoot."
"Did you know anyone who might have wanted Zac killed?"
"I thought you guys had this figured out?"
"No, apparently the knife was a decoy. The one that was used to slash Zac’s arm is still out there."
"Oh." I shook a little bit. Scared to think that the killer still hadn’t been caught.
"So do you?"
"Well no, as I said before, I didn’t spend much time with him."
The cop that hadn’t talked yet was writing everything down.
"Okay, now about Lydia. Anyone that might have wanted to kill her?"
"Well no one in particular liked her, buy I doubt anyone would want to kill her."
"Okay, thank you. That’s all."
"Okay. Come by anytime."
They left and I was still scared. The fact that someone who was killing people was still free and he lived in our neighborhood scared me senseless.
I spent the whole day indoors lounging around.
Harry hadn’t called or texted at all. I wonder what was wrong.
He was probably mad at how cold I was towards him last night.
-Next Morning-
I walked into science a bit late from trying to look for Harry.
The teacher was assigning partners for our next major assignment.
Apparently, Jake and I had been assigned partners. I sat next to him and offered a smile.
I sneaked a peak around the room and found Harry sitting in the back with a girl named Jessica.
He held my stare for a second but than looked away, clearly angry.
I pulled my phone out.
To Harry: What’s wrong?
I put my phone back waiting for it to vibrate while we got instructions on what to make.
"Your project will be due at the end of this week, so you might need to spend some time outside of school finishing your projects."
I looked at Jake and he smiled at me. I didn’t feel comfortable being partners with him. He was a player and knew how manipulate girls.
"So, my place tonight or yours?"
"Whichever." I didn’t mind going over to his house, his sisters were always really nice.
"How about your house? My sisters are probably not going to let us concentrate."
"Okay."
The bell rang.
"I’ll see you at 4 okay ?"
"Okay."
He walked out. I waited for Harry so that we could go to lunch together, but when I looked he was gone.
I sighed and walked out. I walked to my locker and he was there, waiting for me. I frowned at him.
"Why didn’t you wait for me?"
"I had to go to the bathroom." He said coldly.
"That’s great. Wanna tell me why your mad at me?"
"I’m not mad?"
"Sure your not. So you’ve just been ignoring me for the fun of it?" I slammed the locker door and left, "That’s great."
He walked behind me, his hands in his pockets still, not touching me.
"Katie wait up."
I didn’t stop, I was angry at him now. He got ahead and stopped in front of me.
"Move." I said crossing my arms.
"No."
"Move, I’m hungry."
"Good I’ll buy you lunch."
"No Harry. I don’t want you to. Go be angry at me for no apparent reason. Move!"
Jake passed by.
"Harry, let her go."
"Jake, I’m having a conversation with my girlfriend. You can leave."
Jake stepped between us.
"No. You don’t have to be rude to her."
"I’m not. Mind you’re own buisness."
I was angry at how Harry was acting and I decided to jump in.
"He is minding his buisness," I looped my arm in Jake’s, "He’s taking me to lunch."
I spun us around and walked to the parking lot, feeling a little proud of the surprised face I left on Harry’s.
I got into Jake’s car and apologized.
"I’m sorry about that Jake."
"Nah don’t worry." He started the car and we went to lunch. 



.
We were at subway sitting at a table.
"Are you and Harry having problems?"
I sighed. “No, we were really good. But I don’t. It’s just a faze. Every couple has problems.”
"Ha, Lydia and I only had problems nothing else."
Silence.
"I’m sorry, about what happened to her."
"Don’t be."
We kept eating.
"Anyways….I think we should head back."
"I agree. Thanks for bringing me to lunch Jake."
"Anytime." He said with a smile.
Jake had never been this nice to me. NEVER. And I’ve known him for a long time. Wonder what’s gotten into him.
Now I just had to brace myself to what Harry would say.
