Take care

(Starts in 2009, before XFactor. Harry was just a normal teen from Cheschire with big dreams)

Harry and Valerie had always been best friends. From their birth to their teenage years, everything was fine. A few mistakes changed the whole thing, but their relationship always stayed strong.

Sometimes, saying nothing says it all...

«You've seen all my mistakes...»

Maybe they were ''too close'' to be bf/gf but what happens when life gives you no other choice? And what happens when fame takes away the person you need the most?

Some people change, and some just won't.

Harry's POV

I walked about 5 miles, which took me one hour and a half to get to the hospital. I hesitated before I put my first feet in. I wanted to leave now that I was there. But I couldn't because Valerie was in and I had to know if she was okay before I could get any sleep. She got the worst out of me that day but since I have this extreme bound with her, I couldn't leave now. I entered the big place. I never really liked hospitals and because of my tiredness at that moment, I hated it even more. I always felt sick whenever I would come here, even though I wasn't. I was always a bit sad also because usually hospitals means bad news. 

I had no idea where Val and Jess could be. I asked the woman at the entry, she looked at me like I had done something wrong and she told me to go straight than to turn on the left. I'm pretty sure she knew the story that happened but thought I was the guilty one, not the hero. I walked the road she told me and found Valerie asleep on a what looked uncomfortable grey chair. Her hand was falling off on one side so I placed it back on her belly so she would feel more comfy. Someone called her name from a room not too far. She didn't wake up so I decided to go in the room to see what they wanted from her. A doctor was sitting in his office and looked at me knowing that I wasn't Valerie. 

- She's asleep on the chair...
- Then wake her up, young men! Is she your friend?
- Yes...
- You must not be a good one otherwise I wouldn't have found hard drug in her blood analysis. 

I didn't know what to tell him, so I left the little room. I was walking very fast, I stopped by Valerie to get my coat that I had left on the chair beside her. I continued my walk to the door when I heard a girly voice saying my name. I turned around and Valerie was awake. 

- Harry! What are you doing here?
- Just checking on you... But apparently I'm not a good friend so I was leaving now
- Who told you that?
- The doctor that found drug in your system. 
- Oh...

I could tell she was still a bit intoxicated. She looked miserable and about to cry. I wanted  to hug her but I didn't offer her my arms because I wanted her to realize I wasn't all hers. I cared very much about her and what she does in life but everything that happened that day made me believe she was taking me for granted. It's like she needed to know everything about what I say, what I do and what I think. Plus, I wasn't too happy about the drug thing. It even made me wonder if she took it because I left earlier without telling her all she felt like she needed to know. She still looked so innocent to me, and I started to feel bad because in the end she wanted to know all about me and I kept hiding things from her. Maybe that's why I was feeling attacked when she was trying to know it all, maybe I was scared she would found out about the things I didn't tell her. After all, I've been hiding from her what's been going on with Felicity and the fact that I wasn't in White Eskimo anymore. Although I was pretty sure she would learn from someone else if I didn't tell her myself, I just wasn't ready yet. I knew she'd be mad for not telling her right away and maybe that's exactly what I wanted. At this moment all I was thinking was how this would be a great lesson for her, and she'd eventually stop acting like she did that  day. 

- I'm gonna leave now, Valerie.
- Why did you even came? If you're going to leave right away.
- Just to see if everything was alright. I didn't had the chance to see you go with Jess in the ambulance. 
- Yeah because you were taking good care of Josh. Thank you for saving Jess... I'm pretty sure she'll text you when she'll wake up. You saved her because I couldn't. 
- No problem...
- How did you even know where she was?
- After I left you in the backyard, I was ready to go home but people kept telling me how you looked lost and alone. Plus I heard you shouting her name so I wondered what was happening. Then, someone told me Josh had taken her to a room. Since I knew you both did drug I pictured the worst and apparently I was right. 

Her eyes were still filled up with tears. How come I hated that girl as much as I loved her? Growing up sucks when you know how easy things were before. I just wished love, parties and trips didn't come between us during the last few months. 

She came close to me and put her arms around my shoulders, holding me tight. I didn't know what to do. My heart started racing. 

In the end, that might just have been what I needed to make me realize what I believe a few seconds ago was only shit I made up in my mind. Valerie was everything I needed, I didn't have to care about love, parties and what happens on trips. 

- I guess I saved Jess because I was scared it would've been you instead of her.
- I know...
- Can you tell me why you did drugs?
- I don't know. I was bored. You left me without any reason and you wouldn't even care texting me without being rude so I figured I would go and party hard. Jess came to my house and she had this... I thought I'd try it and it'd be fun. You weren't even suppose to be there, I had to find a way to be happy and forget about what happened earlier. 
- I see. Sorry about that. It's just that sometimes I feel like I need my own life. I like to share things with you but there are a few things I need to keep for myself.
- Oh I get that. I also have stuff that I never told you about. That's fine but I wouldn't get mad at you if you wanted to know about them. I'd explain it to you like you just did, but I wouldn't stop talking to you for hours like you did to me today. 

I nodded and asked her if she was ready to go home. She told me she wanted to stay with her friend so I made my way back home in the dark of the night. I thought about what she told me, that she kept secrets from me and I wondered what they were. I finally realized I was just like what I criticized she was. I needed to know everything about that girl or else I was feeling insecure. I couldn't keep my secrets from her anymore, I was going to tell her next time we meet.
