I saved your life

Maria was an ordinary girl until her dreams came true and she fell in love...


9. Secrets

The next 2 days I was in shut down mode. I wouldn't eat and I stopped talking to my dad. Whenever my friends texted me "are you ok" I wouldn't reply until the next day. Or wouldn't reply at all. Harry tried calling the house phone a couple times to check up on me but whenever I was about to answer the phone my dad would answer it first and then put the phone down realising it was Harry. 

My sister came into my room on the 2nd day, she was 13 so when I said I'd 'look after her' I meant as in 'she looks after herself while I do my own things'. She had heard about what happened two days ago and she at first looked confused but then she seemed to have understood. she asked me, "Maria, do you really love Harry?" 

"Yes, since the day I saved him." I replied with a croak.

"then why don't you go after him?" 

"You wouldn't understand Shantel, you're only 13. You've never been in love."

"is it dad? Is dad the one trying to control your heart or is it you?"

Shantel was right, dad didn't have the right to tell me who to love and who I was supposed to be. "You're right Shantel, I'm the only person who can control my heart. You know for a 13 year old you're a whizz at love." 

"It's a gift." She said smiling and then I pulled her into a hug. 

next day

 Harry called me saying he was off to America tomorrow. I was about to cry when I heard him say that. He asked if he could see me today before he left because he had something to ask me and I said yes. Until about 1pm I kept  quiet before I ran out the house saying, "off to Shannon's for a couple hours. don't miss me!" 

i met Harry at the park where we last saw each other alone together. As soon as we saw each other we ran into each others arms and hugged lie we were never going to let go of one another.  When we finally let go Harry was acting all nervous. "Are you alright Harry?" I asked concerned. 

"Yeah. It's just that, I'm really going to miss you."

"aw harry I'm going to miss you too. These past days have been so hard not being able to see you r hear you're voice."

Harry put his arm around my shoulder and I lay my head on his shoulder. "You know you're dad doesn't want us together though, right? And if I can't please your dad how am I going to please myself knowing that I won't be able to communicate with my girl for the next couple months if every time I call your house phone or your phone he's always first to answer it and then hangs up on me." Harry squeezed my shoulder and I moved closer into him.

"Harry, did you just call me your girl?" My heart started to beat at a million miles per second. 

Harry sounded nervous, "Yes. That's what I wanted to ask you. Maria, will you be my girlfriend?" Harry looked scared as if I was going to say no. 

I pulled him into a kiss and said, "Does that answer your question?" Harry smiled and kissed me again. I was now his girlfriend!
