2. Holding You Tight



One thing I have learned through all that has happened is, people will come and go in your life, and whether they leave because of death or because you simply lose touch, when it comes to the person you love "Til death do us apart" is just an understatement, because death doesn't do you apart. The one you love will always be with you, whether they are dead or alive. And this goes for everyone you have ever loved and who has ever loved you. So, don't let the world fool you. Amazing things can happen when you have faith. -Harry

7. Garret

Emma's P.O.V.

"Wow, never thought I would see you again." Garret said.

"Damn you! I thought you were dead! You died Garret! You passed away at the age of eight from cancer! What the hell are you doing alive?! Have you been hiding for all these years?! You coward!" I yelled back.

"That was Jackson. He passed away from Cancer. Dad put it under my name and age for when you looked back on it. He knew I would be the one to run away and try to find and save you. You had another brother.... He was five at the time he died. I was eight. At the age of ten I ran. Leaving you behind. I knew you were a tough chick. We used to box and wrestle each other. I taught you what you needed to know before I left. I knew you would get out one day. Once I heard that you got out and were legally an adult, I came looking for you."

"You're such a jerk. You left me. Made me believe your dead!"

"Em, I did it to protect you."

I slumped to the ground and sighed. Tears started to fill my eyes.

"Just say you love me and come give me a hug." Garret finally said.

I smiled and jumped up. I ran into his arms. "I love you. Please don't leave me again." I said now crying.

"I know how much danger you are in, that's why I'm here. I wouldn't have come if I knew I could trust dad, but I can't."

"Yeah, he's an real ass."

"Em! Watch your mouth!" He yelled smiling.

"Oh yeah, like yours is any better. Hypocrite." I said laughing.

"How have you been?" He said still laughing.

"Good. I wish I could say I remember you, but I don't. I only remember your name and that you're my brother."

"I'm not the one you want to remember exactly. So, what now? Dads dead, and you're alive."

"Run." I said looking back towards Jonny.

"What? But we have nothing more to worry about."

"Yes we do, Jonny's prison friends that also escaped. I'm going to run back to my friends place and grab some things, and then we'll leave" I paused for a minute and then said, "Forever."

Garret nodded and we left.

"So, whose your friend?" He asked.

"A guy who hates me." I said looking down.

"Well, that sure sounds like a friend. Were you guys dating for a while?"

"Yes. I broke up with him right before I left. Can we just not talk about it?"

"Yeah. Sorry."

For the rest of the ride we didn't talk once. We finally arrived at Harry's place. I took a deep breath and got out of the car.

"Stay here." I said sternly and then walked up to the door.

I stood there for a second replaying the fight we had in my head. I knocked and the door.

"C-come in" a drunken voice came.

"I walked in and saw Harry on the couch with a bunch of wine, vodka, and beer around him. All the bottles were empty.

"What the hell! This is how you deal with pain! Dammit! You've crossed the line! You think you were the only own who was heart broken?! No! I am so heart broken, but I am able to deal with it." I yelled.

Harry stood there like a deer in the headlights.

"I came to pack up some stuff. I'm leaving, forever. My brother will be with me." I said a little calmer now.

Harry still stood there in shock. I shook my head and went to go get my bags.

I packed some clothes, my meds, and my gun.

I got up ready to leave when Harry walked into the room. I stood there waiting for him to say something, but he never said anything, he just inched closer. When he finally said something he was inches away from me.

"I'm sorry. I know I can't make this better, but I can give you this before you leave."

He held out a ring. I looked at it and looked up at him. I was in shock.

"I'm not gonna say it, because I know you'll say no, but will you at least take it?" He asked shaking.

I pushed him aside and walked out to the car.

"Let's go." I told Garret.

"What happened?" He asked seeing the tears in my eyes.

"Nothing, let's go!"

He didn't question any more and we left.

Harry's P.O.V.

"You screwed this up bad." Gemma said hugging me.

"I loved her so much..." I trailed off and then jumped out of Gemma's arms. "I'm going after her."

"Harry, no. She obviously doesn't want you or else she would have taken the ring or even said yes to marrying you."

"I'll keep in touch." I said.

I was out the door and on my way.
