Almost Is Never Enough

"Don't worry I will catch you if you fall" he smiles.
"Even if I fall in love with you?" I ask him
"Only if you promise to catch me too" he says softly in my ear.

14. Even a Lie Sounds Good In That Accent

It's almost New Year's Eve, oh well by almost I mean tomorrow...

What about Christmas? You all ask...well my christmas was completely normal, and by normal I mean me and Alex's family...it was just this nice and normal dinner where we open our presents, have a laugh and a great time...and this really helped me out because of Harry...

I heard from Alex that he's in England...and now you're wondering how Alex knows this stuff? Well Harry and Alex have been close these days...not close in a 'i like you' way but in a suspicious like when I ask her about it she just drops the subject and starts a new one...

Oh well never mind...

The weather was cooler day by day, and my thoughts everyday when I woke up were if Harry was alright...cause I guess I'm tired of being mad at him, I'm tired of suffering because of him, I'm just tired...I miss him, I miss him so darn much, I wish he still talked to me, but then there's Ashley...when I see her my anger towards Harry appears...All of a sudden every sweet thing about him disappears...

Well today I have this New Years Party at some cafe with Alex, the whole school is invited so we decided to attend it too...

Alex is already in my closet trying to decide what I will be wearing...

"I don't think I want to go, Alex" I huff, I really wasn't in the mood of seeing everyone, not with Ashley there...

She glares at me for at least 2 seconds and turns herself to my wardrobe making a mess in my room again...

"This reminds me of when I was preparing for Harry's date..." I say looking at my blue dress laying on my bed...I pick it up and look at it... So pretty for such a big lie...

The kiss, the picnic everything was so pretty and wonderful...

I sigh at my thoughts and Alex gives a little winch...

"I know just the dress!" She says showing me the white dress in her soft and delicate hands...

I take a look at it and smile...

This is going to be a interesting evening...

**
The heat on the inside was outrageous, the smell of alcohol, the heat from the bodies colliding, I just need fresh air...I get up from my seat and my eyes travel through the bodies and heads right in front of me trying to find Alex...I just don't give a damn right now...If I don't get out of here I'm going to be sick...

I just walk straight to the cafe's exit and inhale all the fresh air I can...

I smile to the beautiful night...the moon was hard to miss, and the stars were shinning bright like diamonds in the sky...it was just so beautiful...it reminds me of my balcony back at home...the day that my dad and mom argued about some stupid thing...well I know that day I wanted to disappear, but then I met Harry and...

"Beautiful isn't it?" 

My heart sinks at the sound of his voice, my body is frozen and every breath I took was as hard as trying to sustain your breathing under water for 2 minutes...

"What are you doing here?" Is all I am  capable to say...

I feel him smile, but I knew that it was an ironic smile...

"Emma, we never talked..."

"Yes we did and I made myself clear to you" I say cooly.

I never turn my gaze to his, cause I know what's going to happen if I do, so As long as that tree is there I'm not looking anywhere...not even a peek...

"You never gave me the time to explain" he says calmly...his voice was still raspy and the accent was just perfect...

Even a lie would sound good in that accent...oh god that's the whole point, isn't Emma? Ugh. Concentrate on the freaking tree.

I feel him stepping closer to me...

"I don't want you to lie" I answer him, making him stop, and stand still for a moment or two...but preceding with his process...

"You know I think I owe you this explanation so if you believe it fine, if you don't I'll be gone forever I promise" the way he articulated the words wasn't so secure of them.

I wasn't ready for him to give up on me, I am not ready for him to give up on me...

"Ok, you have 2 minutes" I say sitting in the fence looking at the bright starry sky...

I feel him sit next to me and a goose surrounds my whole body...

"Remember that day when Ashley and you started fighting?" He asks and I nod.

"The next day I went to talk to her and ask her what was going on...and she said that it was because of me, and that if I didn't start dating her..." But his voice breaks down and I hear sobs...is this real or is this a drama show or something?

He precede. "Then she gave me a week...I didn't really care at first but then when we went on our date I realized that I really like you Emma, and then Ashley found out through your sister that we went on a date so she started threatening me again..." Harry sobs...

"And then I started dating her" He says...

"And why are you telling me this now?" I ask him...


And that was when he leans closer to me...

"Why did you come back Harry?" I demand, my heart was beating so fast and when his eyes meet mine all my worries were gone...

"Because I will always come back for you" He whispered...

And that's when I feel his lips in contact with mine again, those lips...I missed them so much...I can feel his pulse through them...I feel the love that he is pouring to it, I can feel the fresh mint of his mouth...the way his lips move from mines, traveling to my neck...

I love the way he makes me feel, but that isn't going to make up everything, I don't even know if he is telling me the truth...

"Harry, stop" I say moving away from him...standing up and turn to him...

The light wasn't that much but I can see him perfectly...his face is buried  in his hands and I know I caused this by breaking the kiss...

"I'm sorry Harry" I say with my eyes tearing up...

He just gets up from his sit and walks over to me...

"I know you don't believe me, but I do like you...and I am telling the truth Emma, please give me a chance to show you that I lo...like you" He blurts the last part...

Was he going to...oh my god...no forget about it...concentrate...what if what he is saying the truth? What if he really likes me...I don't know what to do...I just...

"Please Emma, please, Alex knows that Ashley is threatening me, she listened to one of our conversations, if you don't believe me, believe her please..." The look of despair in his eyes...those big green orbs...

That's why they were all so friendly during this weeks...oh my god I'm so torn right now...please I just need someone to tell me that he is saying the truth or not, but I like him so yeah... I want it so bad to be true...

"Harry, where the fuck are you?" I hear this irritant little voice of Ashley's echo through my mind...

"I'm here Ashley" he looks at me with his eyes wide open, but I just move away from him and huff.

That's when she appears out of nowhere and looks at me with this very deadly look of hers...

Harry snakes his arm around my waist and I swear I was just about to glare at him for that but he was too concentrated on Ashley's arrival...

"Oh there you are, babe" she makes sure to make the last word sound clear...

"What do you want, Ashley?" He spits...

He was looking at her with full disgust...oh mu god I'm glad I'm watching this...Popcorn please? Anyone? No? Ok. 

"Yes darling what are you doing here with Natalie?" She always forgets my name...ugh...

"My name is Emm" 

But her words cut my sentence...

"Nobody talked to you Lauren" She sends me that creepy look of hers...

"I don't like you Ashley..." He says simply " so leave me the fuck alone..." He grabs my right hand and squeezes it...

"But I do and we have a deal...unless you want her to be hurt" she laughs...

So it was all true...everything that Harry told me...it is all true...

"I want you out of my life, Ashley, leave us alone" i could see his blood boiling through is neck and that's when I interfere...

"You heard him, leave" I say strongly "You are such an arrogant little child that gets whatever you want whenever you want, well game over Ashley, you lost." I try to break my hand free from Harry's but he doesn't let me...

"She's  not worth it" he whispers...

And his voice somehow tranquilized me.

He gently places his hand on the back of my neck tranquilizing me...

"Well Harry, this is how you want to play? Ok, I warned you..." And then she vanishes...

I take a deep breath and when I turn to Harry I have no warning before he crashes is lips against mine...

How I missed him...

I break away from the kiss and start talking really fast...

"I'm so sorry Harry, I really am, I shouldn't have been such a fool, I am so sorry, the truth is that I really like you and I never stopped liking you...never, never will, never did..." 

He just pecks my lips and nods smiling before crashing his lips against mine again.

"3,2,1 Happy New Year" I hear from the inside...

He pulls me away and smile again.

"Happy New Year Emma" he gently tucks my hair behind my ear.

"Happy New Year Harry" I kiss him back without even caring about the fireworks right above us...
