You Can't Have Both

Katie Pierce was your popular girl in school. had all the friends, and even the hottest boyfriend. she loved her life and she wished it could stay like that forever.

that was until her and her dad had to move half way around the world just after she finished senior year, forced to leave everything behind she loved.

she promised things to people that she now realises she cant keep. hatred soon grew back in her home town over her, after only a month in her new house.

will she try and regain all friendship with her old friends, or will she create a whole new life in an attempt to forget?


23. chapter twenty-three

An hours worth of thinking flew by, and now I was waiting on the steps of the Sydney Opera House. 


But I'm worried that he wont come. 


5 minutes later, I could spot him just in the distance. I stood up and began walking towards him, as he was strolling to me. We exchanged small smiles, before we sat down on a nearby bench. I crossed my legs and turned to face him. 


"Listen Luke." I began, but stopped as I interrupted myself with a gasp.


I had made him cry. 


I pulled him in for a tight hug before whispering an "I'm sorry." into his ear. He tightly wrapped his arms around me and rested his head on my shoulder, sighing. 


"Don'T go. Just please, don't go." he whispered. A small tear fell from my eye as I ruffled round with his hair a little bit. 

"I'm sorry." I apologised, hoping to make things better between us. "But I promise we will keep in touch this time. I don't want to loose our friendship." I mumbled. He lifted his head off of my shoulder, and looked deep into my eyes. 

"Promise?" He pulls out his pinky and holds it in front of us both. 

"Promise." I smiled, hooking my pinky with his. We both looked up at each other and smiled. 


The rest of the afternoon was spent with Luke, although we mainly just stayed by the Harbour, admiring the view. I gave Luke one final goodbye before we parted our separate ways. My phone buzzed in my pocket and so I fast whipped it out, reading the text I had just received. 


From Luke

Hey Katie, just making sure you didn't give me a bogus number ;)


To Luke

I would never.


From Luke

Whatcha doing? :)


To Luke

Oh, you know, walking back to the hotel. The same thing I was doing when you left ;)


From Luke

Oh true... Sorry I just want an excuse to talk to you :)


To Luke

Well you don't need an excuse to talk to me, I'm here to talk about anything! Back in London I'm not sure how the timezone will go, you know us being like 10 hours behind or something, but we shall give it a shot :)


From Luke



I looked up from my tiny phone to see that I was standing outside the hotel already. I walked inside and waved a hello to Wendy at the front desk before entering the elevator. 


"I'm back." I called throughout the penthouse, and to my surprise I got a faint reply. 

"Harry?" I mumbled, opening the bedroom door and peeking my head inside. I noticed Harry had done some shopping today. Their was a new suitcase lying open on the floor, with all brand new clothes messily thrown inside. At least Harry has some variety in clothes now. As soon as my eyes met his, his eyes widened, before he broke out into a smile. I pushed the door open fully and sauntered inside, and as soon as my feet hit the end of the bed, I flopped. I lifted my head off of the pillow and gazed at Harry, who was now lying next to me. I'm surprised he still had room on the bed because I was laying like a starfish.  


"So how did Luke go?" He gritted through his teeth, obviously not wanting to talk about the situation, but he asked anyway. 

"Fine." I smiled, closing my eyes. 

"So hes out of your life for good now? No more hassle from him?" 

"Harry, he wasn't a hassle. I would have reacted the same way if what was happening to him, was happening to me. Just drop it alright? I'm too tired to talk about this now." I breathed out heavily. 

"Well whatever. Hes out of our lives now. No more worries." He placed his hand on mine and entwined our fingers.

"Right." I said unconvincingly, soon falling into a deep sleep.
