22. I can't do this

I woke up extra early to get ready for lunch with Harry. I wanted to make a good impression since we haven't seen each other in a while. I threw on a dark red sweater and some leggings with my Toms. I examined myself in the mirror. Man, I look big! The sweater was pulling at the seams by my belly. I don't know how Liam still finds me attractive. I'm huge. But I'm not thinking about that stuff today. Today I'm just focused on my old friend, and reuniting with him. I grabbed my purse and my phone and started to walk out my front door. But of course, my mom constantly wants to know what I'm doing.

"Nikki where do you think you're going?" she raced in front of me and blocked the doorway. 

"To lunch. With a friend." I rolled my eyes and pushed past her. 

She turned around and followed me. "If I see you anywhere NEAR that prison or a boy, you will be grounded for months. So really think through what you're doing before you do it. Have a nice day." she walked back into the apartment with a smile on her face like she accomplished something. Jokes on her though. Liam is out of prison. I'm meeting Harry for lunch. She can't control me anymore. 

I walked to the subway, but then got a text from Harry. 

FROM HARRY- "Let's meet at the Burger King right by your house instead of that fancy restaurant. I don't feel like dressing up today."

I turned around and walked toward Burger King. It was directly next to my apartment building. Perfect. When I got in there, Harry was already sitting at a table, waiting for me. He looked a lot different. His hair looked messy, and he had an earring and tattoos. A lot of tattoos. 

"Hello, love!!" he jumped up and gave me a huge hug. "God, I missed you." He looked directly in my eyes and grabbed my face. 

"Umm.. Okay! It's nice to see you too!" I fought his grip and sat down across from him. "So.. how's Emily?"

"Gone. She left me for some german dude. I doubt she knows he's German though... She has trouble listening to people, if you know what I mean."

"Oh I'm sorry..... so... what did you want to meet with me for?"

His smile started to fade away, and he made direct eye contact again. Then he pulled up his sleeve, revealing a tattoo on his shoulder. It was my name. It black script, "Nikki" was written, right on his flesh. Forever. "I'm in love with you, Nikki. I know that you have a boyfriend. I know that you're gonna have a baby with him. I know you don't have feeling for me anymore. But just hear me out. Everyday, I wake up for some reason. I didn't know what it was a few days ago, but now I know. It's you. Not a day goes by where I don't think about you. That's the truth. You make me so happy I can't even describe. I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Please, give me a chance."

"Harry... I can't. I'm with Liam now. Even though you had a girlfriend while you were with me, you still treated me right. You made me super happy. But time goes by, and so do people. I'm sorry. But hey, we make excellent friends!" I tried to smile, even though seeing people sad always makes me sad. 

"I can't just be friends with you! You don't understand how hard it is to be in love with someone who doesn't feel the same way. You're all I think about."

"I'm sorry, Harry. I can't." There was a silence. I looked at the ground. Then I felt Harry's warm hands at my chin.

"Kiss me. Just once. And I promise you will never hear about this again." He started to move closer to my face.

"I-I" I couldn't even finish before his lips were pressed against mine. I wanted to pull away, but I just couldn't. He stood up over the table and put his hand on my face, his lips not releasing. I grabbed his tattooed biceps. Which were huge. Then at once Harry's arm and lips were pulled away from me. I opened my eyes to see Harry on the floor, and Liam standing over him.

"Liam! Why are you here?"

He was holding Harry by the collar of his shirt. "I could ask you the same, Nikki." He looked back down at Harry. "You said you'd stay away!" He threw Harry against the wall. Everyone in the Burger King turned around and looked at us. Liam was punching Harry in the face over and over again. 

"LIAM PLEASE STOP!!" I ran behind him and tried to grab his arm. His elbow came all the way back and popped me in the face before I could. I was thrown to ground from the force of his hit. Harry was sitting a few feet away from me, and came crawling over as Liam was trying to pick him up by the collar again. Harry's face was bloody, and he looked exhausted. I tried to reach for him, but some man that was watching came over and pulled Liam and Harry both back. 

"Somebody call the cops!" The man yelled. 

I stood up with a swollen eye. "No, please don't! Please!" The man looked at me at shook his head. Harry sat back down at the table, and I sat across from him. We watched as two men talked to Liam in the corner of the resturant. Every now and then, me and Liam's eyes would meet. He looked away every time. 

"Nikki?" Harry tapped my hand with tears in his eyes. "I'm sorry. Whatever happens to Liam, it's my fault. I shouldn't have kissed you."

"I don't really know what to say right now, Harry. Liam just got out of jail. What am I suppose to do if he gets put back in?"

"Nikki.......I won't press charges. I just need you to keep him away from me. And we'll only be able to hang out at school. One place he definitely won't be able to interrupt us at."

"Really? You're not pressing charges? Harry...thank you. I can't- I can't even describe how thankful I am that I have a friend like you." I stood up and gave him a hug. "See you later."

"Alright. Bye, love." Harry walked out the Burger King with a limp. He looked more miserable then when I first walked in. I walked over to where Liam and the two men were standing.

"I'll take him home now guys." I grabbed Liam's arm and directed him out of the restaurant. We walked in silence to my apartment building. Once we were outside it, Liam grabbed my hand.

"I understand if you want to break up. I don't know what came over me. I just feel really protective since you're-" He looked up at me, with shock. "What happened to your eye?"

"Oh this? You elbowed me. Liam, you have to get control of your anger! You almost really hurt Harry!"

"Well I'm sorry, but maybe he should learn to keep his hands off of my girlfriend! I can't take that crap anymore! I want to protect you, Nikki. I promise it will never happen again." He looked straight at me, with his big brown eyes.

"Okay. This is your last chance. And I mean it. This has crossed the line. I can't believe I'm giving you another chance...but I am. So use it wisely."

"Yes ma'am." He smiled at me. "I promise, it will never happen again."

I nodded and started to walk in my apartment building. "Well, I'll see you tomorrow after school?" Liam grabbed my hands.

"Yes, Liam." I walked in the building and waved goodbye to him. Once I got inside, I ran to my room. I didn't want my parents seeing my eye. I finished some weekend homework, and then watched TV until I fell asleep. I couldn't stop thinking about what happened though. Or why I gave Liam another chance. I do love him, but he really hurt Harry. Harry is one of my best friends. I don't know what's going through my head. It's almost like I'm afraid to leave Liam...because I'm afraid of him.
