Annabelle's P.O.V.


"Took you long enough." I whined at Liam as I hopped into his car.

"Traffic. And it only took me 10 minutes." He said as he speed down the driveway. "Which way did she go?"

"Right. I think she's headed to my mom's house. She lives in Carrollton." I said.

"Ok, But we need to make one stop first." He said, turning left.

"I just said she turned right." I leaned up in my seat, to get a better look at him.

"Yes. I need to make a couple of stops first." he said, as if we were on our way to a movie, instead of looking for a distressed girl.

"Fine whatever." I slammed my back up against the car seat. He drove fast, probably 30 miles over the speed limit. "Slow down would you?"

"The longer it takes me to get to where I'm going, the longer it's going to take for me to find your sister." He said, shifting gears.

"Just hurry okay? I'm worried about her."

"I know, I am too." He slowed and pulled into the Pizza Hut parking lot.

"So, the thing you had more important to do than finding my sister, is getting pizza?" I yelled.

"I'm not saying it's more important. Just that I needed to get it." He hopped out after putting his sunglasses on, and ran in. He emerged a good 5 minutes later with a pizza box in hand.

"Can we go now?" I asked, as he handed me the pizza.

"One more stop." he said, sliding into the driver seat.

"What, are we going to go to get some Chinese now?"

"No. I have to drop the pizza off at the hotel for Harry."

"Can you just hurry?" I asked again, knowing that it wasn't going to make him go any faster, though it made me feel like it.


"We're here." He said, pulling in to one of the many Hampton Inn's in Newnan.

"You're staying here?" I questioned.

"Yea. It's a little more low profile." He started to open his door, then turned to me, "You coming?"

"Fine." I hopped out of the car and followed him. He opened the door for me and walked over to the elevator. "What floor?" I asked as he stepped in after me.

"3rd." he leaned over and punched the last button so it lit up. We stood there in silence and watched the numbers climb, until we heard a ding and the doors opened letting us off. "This way." He turned to the left, indicating for me to follow. He stood in front of the door, and handed the pizza off to me, so he could dig in his pockets for his keys. He found it and looked at me with a warning look before opening the door. "Harry!" He called, putting his keys on the counter.

"In here!" Harry called from the other room. He sounded depressed. I followed Liam through the apartment sized suit into one of the bedrooms, to find Harry sprawled out on one of the couches.

"How long does it take to get pizza?" he asked sitting up. He paused and stared at me. His eyes looked hurt, and stunned. I turned and went to sit on the bed. "Well that explains alot!" He exclaimed to Liam, obviously meaning me.

"Lilly ran off, and she called me to come and help find her." Liam said, defending himself.

"And you had to bring her here?!" He stood up, and flung one of his huge hands in my direction.

"Just seemed like the right thing to do is all." Harry turned and walked into the bathroom connected to his room. "Well that went well." He leaned back on his heels. "I'm gonna go look for your sister. Call me when he comes out, will you?"

"YOU'RE LEAVING ME HERE?!" I yelled jumping off the bed.

"Yup. You two have some issues to work out, and this is the best way to do it." He turned and walked toward the door, grabbing his keys of the kitchenette counter. "Have fun." he said, and walked out the door.

What the hell does he think is doing, leaving me here with Harry like this?! He just made number two on my list, right under Harry. Wait I don't have a list. I'm making one now, First it's Harry, then Liam, and after that Lilly. She has pissed me off, off the earth and into another realm of existence!

My eyes snapped up as Harry walked out the bathroom. He looked just as miserable as me. "He left you here?" he asked.

"Yup." I said, and walked over to the bed and sat down.

"Might as well try and work this out. Whatever this is." He said, following me to the bed. He sat down next to me, and put a hand on my upper leg. It sent shivers up my leg and into my gut. I wanted him to leave his hand there, but knew that it couldn't, I jerked my leg away, so that his hand dropped to the bed.

"Just don't touch me." I said, and scooched and inch further away from him


Harry's P.O.V.


She was so beautiful. I knew that I should have kept my hands in my lap as soon as she jerked her leg out from under my hand. I let it fall to the bed and stay there. I just stared at her her, not sure what to say. It felt right when we touched, but she didn't seem to think so, maybe this was a one way mirror I was looking through.

"Just don't touch me ok?" she asked scooting away.

I just nodded, and picked up my hand and put it back in my lap. Why would Liam do this to me? He knows that this is torture. She obviously doesn't feel the same way about me as I do her. Liam is mad at me for taking off and not telling him, he's getting back at me. We sat in silence. Each staring at the floor.

"Why'd you do it?" she asked, breaking the silence. I looked up at her. I could tell that she was holding back tears.

"Do what?" I asked

"Why did you have to come back into my life?" She stood, and walked to the other side of the room. "Why did you have to come back, and make me feel things that I don't want to feel. Why did you have to drive me home that day! You could have done what a normal person would have done and just gone on with your life!" a few tears escaped, and she quickly wiped them away, probably not wanting me to see. "You disappeared! You didn't call! You didn't text! You didn't email! Why would you do that!" She was in a full blown sob now. "You left me stranded! Who does that?!" She turned and ran out the room, slamming the door behind her.

I sat there, staring, not sure if I should give her time, or go after her.
