Battle Scars

Heather has a past that has damaged her for life. She shuts everyone out and trusts no one. Then she meets Liam.


8. Third meeting

After retracing my steps, I somehow managed to get back to my flat. Letting myself in, I plonked down on the sofa. I grabbed my phone from the coffee table and checked it. I had 6 new messages. All from Julie asking me to come into work. Why?

Arriving at the library, I was surprised at how busy it was. Shoot, please don't let me lose my job, I thought to myself. I dashed up to the front desk. Julie was sat there, busy booking things out for people. When she saw me she looked both tired and relieved."Heather, where have you been?" she questioned me. "I'm so sorry Julie, I had to stay at a friends house." She shook her head." Don't worry, you're here now," she said. I breathed a sigh of relief. I honestly didn't deserve a boss like her.

Taking a seat behind the desk, I busily started serving people. I was going so fast I wasn't even looking at the people I was serving. " Hello, Heather," I suddenly heard. My head shot up. "Liam!" I exclaimed. "Seriously why do you keep popping up?" He held his hands up in surrender. " Hey, I was just getting a book out," he protested. I sighed. " Here," I handed him his book. That wasn't enough for him." I didn't even get a chance to talk to you properly last night," I rolled my eyes."Well I can't talk now, I'm working. He thought for a moment. " OK then, can I take you out for coffee afterwards?"

"Would it make you leave me alone?"


 "Fine, I finish in an hour," I told him.

"Awesome," he replied.
