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"


10. Chapter 9

- 1 month later-
" I haven’t been able to even leave the house."
"It aint the end of the world. People die all of the time!"
"But 2 deaths in under a month! And we aren’t just talking regular deaths, murders."
I looked past Harry’s shoulder to the table next to us, where Angela and Luke were arguing.
It was weird seeing it as empty as it was. Just 3 people not instead of 5.
"Are they talking about it again."
I felt Harry’s breath against my neck. He had his left arm slung over mine and I snuggled back into the crook of his armpit when I turned back around.
"Yea. I really wish they would stop. It’s been two weeks since it happened."
Harry and I had started PDA as people called it. We weren’t anything official, but we acted as if we were. I really didn’t mind, but I wish that I could say he was my boyfriend already.
"Cut them some slack," He rested his head next to mine, "They’re scared that something will happen to them."
Everything had been more tense now a days. Considering that 2 people had died from our school.
"Yea, but she had it coming anyway. Who goes out at that time and gets drunk. Especially someone her age."
He thought about what I had said.
"What about Zac?"
I didn’t know what to respond.
"See. I think you should take it more seriously."
"What are you suggesting?"
"Maybe…I think….that you shouldn’t leave the house by yourself…?"
"Ugh come on, not you too!!"
I sat up and crossed my arms. I couldn’t believe that he was like everyone else. Being afraid of the world.
He saw my look of disgust towards his thought. He leaned forward, kissed my cheek and whispered in my ear.
"Baby, I’m just trying to protect you."
I pulled back a little.
"You don’t have to, you’re not my boy-"
I stopped myself before I said it. My cheeks burned and he smiled wide, his perfect teeth showing.
"You were gunna say boyfriend huh?"
"You want me to be your boyfriend huh?"
He poked at my ribs making me giggle.
He got up, holding his hand out. I took it, locking my fingers with his and followed him.
We walked the familiar way to the park and he led me towards the bridge. He spun around, held me close, and nervously spoke up.
"Katie, I no I’m probably not boyfriend material and I insist that you find someone better than me.."
He paused for a second, and I felt his hands slightly shake. Or maybe they were mine from how close he was to me.
"But I wouldn’t be able to see you with someone else. You’re perfect, amazing, and you make me feel like myself…"
He paused again, puffing air out to the side. He was definitely nervous. He looked back at me and stared into my eyes. I could feel myself melting into his eyes.
"When I met you, I never thought that I would fall in love with you. But I have, and I can’t live without you now. Katie……will you be my girlfriend?"
He half smiled at me, the nervous still showing.
"I uhh..I mean..I well..I.."
Words Katie, use your words.
Before I had even finished saying it, he smashed his lips on mine, giving one of his many passionate kisses.
I felt so happy! I had finally found a guy who loved me for me, not for how much money I had. He treated me right and knew how to make me feel like it was just me and him in the world.
Or at least that’s how it had been so far.
