7. Dinner

Hayley’s POV

I looked at Harry with a weird face. He flashed me a cheeky grin and I shot him a dirty look. A wave of anger hit me. Niall noticed our stare off and stepped in.

“Uh, Amanda would you like to stay for dinner?” Niall with hope in his eyes. A grin came across my face as I nodded making my hair bounce. Niall flashed a smile as he lead me to the kitchen to reveal Liam, also shirtless. When Liam spotted me he cheeks turned red and had a confused look on his face.

“Why are you here, I mean not that I’m totally glad you’re here, but like why?” Liam asked shifting from foot to foot.

“I was gonna ask the same thing” I answered walking up to Liam to give him a hug. He was also warm like Niall. Betsy was mixing a big pot s I walked over to her and looked into the pot to see tomato sauce.

“Can I help?” I asked putting on one of the aprons nearby. Betsy seemed surprised that I wanted to help.

“Well now that you asked can you please put the table and make the salad” Betsy kept stirring. I laughed as I grabbed plates, forks, and knives. I set them on the table and started up on the salad. When I was down Betsy put the sauce into a bowl and the pasta in a huge bowl. She set all the items onto the table. I waited until Niall sat down so I could sit next to him. Then Harry sat in front of me which made me frown. Harry had a hurt face when he saw my frown. Liam sat on the other side of me. Then 2 more shirtless boys came into the dining room. One of the boys had brown hair that was swept to one side and had bright blue eyes that sparkled. The other boy had brown eyes that glowed and black hair up in a quaff. They both smiled when they saw me.

“Okay does anyone in this house own a shirt geez!”  I threw my hands up in the air as I blushed. All the boys stood silent then suddenly burst out laughing.  

My face turned bright read as the boys kept laughing. They quickly stopped laughing when they stuffed food into their mouths. I couldn’t help but notice Harry staring at me as he ate his food. I finally got fed up with him.

“What!” I snapped. The dining room grew quiet. Harry looked at me with a face of bewilderment.

“Well aright then” Niall stated trying to break the silence.

“So, uh Hayley, how do y’all know each other?” Betsy pointed her fork at me and Harry. I held my breath as I gazed at Harry.

“We were friends, but we drifted apart” Harry finally answered not meeting my eyes. His answer infuriated me.

“Drifted apart!? If that’s what you call you ignoring me for the longest time then going out with me because you got dared and then calling me fat ever since I broke up with you, then yes, we “drifted” apart” I didn't  realize I had got up from my chair until Niall grabbed my hand to pull me down.

Warm tears fell freely from my bright green eyes. Harry stared at me for what seemed like forever. I looked up from my plate and saw his emerald green eyes water. The room stayed silent as me and Harry stared at each other and cried.

“Well then, who wants desert?” Betsy asked getting up from the table with her plate and walking into the kitchen.

“I’m just going to go help her” Liam got up from his seat and did the same as Betsy. Shortly after the rest of the boys left. Niall was the last to leave. After he left it was only me and Harry.

“I’m sorry” was all I heard from Harry after five minutes of silence. I looked up at him and wiped away tears with the back of my hand.

“That’s all I get?” Harry did the same and wiped his tears. Harry looked at me with a confused look.

“You tormented me for years, and made me feel like shit, and all I get in sorry? Sorry doesn’t take back everything you said. Sorry doesn’t heal my cuts. Sorry doesn’t do shit!” I was shouting now. It’s not that I wanted to yell, that’s just how my voice sounded. Harry got up from his chair and walked over to me.

“You cut yourself?” His eyes looked hurt and sorry filled. I didn’t meet his eyes. I knew that if I did I would start to cry again. “Answer me” Harry demanded.

“Yes, I did” my voice was so soft I didn’t think harry could hear, but he did. Harry stepped forward and hugged me tight. I could hear a soft sniffle. He rested his chin on my head as if we were back in 8th grade again, but we weren’t everything was different now. I was glad it was different. Harry pulled away and looked me in the eyes.

“You never do that again, understand?” all I could do was nod.

Niall’s POV

Everyone was eating ice cream as desert. No one spoke. The yelling had stopped and I was scared Hayley had killed Harry. I was going to check on them but Betsy said it wasn’t our business. I just hope Hayley didn’t kill him.
