44. Speak Up Now!
….At The Hospital ….
I walked in the hallway, to head to the staff lounge; I needed to grab my coat and put away my purse. As I walked closer to the door, I heard 2 different voices yelling against each other. I walked faster and once I reached to the staff room, I felt a little light headed from the shocking scene. What is Nick doing here!? Why is he talking to Angela?! Do they know each other?! What’s going on in here!?
“You better tell me where she is right now!” He yelled at Angela, and she jumped in her stand from that growl. “I told you I know nothing! You better get out of here before security comes and throws you out!” She fought back at Nick and I kind of was a little astonished on how she protected me! “Lying won’t make it useful for you doll face! I’ve been roaming around her house but she’s never there! Speak up now!” After what I just heard him yell, I couldn’t take it anymore; I felt this unleashed courage fill me in as I walked inside. “Looking for me?” I crossed my arms, and he turned his head to glance at me; his eyes were piercing my own pair like he wanted nothing but harm. He didn’t reply, he walked towards me and out of nowhere; I saw my hand slap his cheek as hard as I could. Did I just slap Nick?!
“Keep stalking me and I promise you that you’ll end up with a restraining order, get out.”He didn’t even dare to talk; he was so embarrassed from the slap; that’s when he turned his face and stomped out of the room. I saw Angela slide down on the wall, while tears blew up in silence. I ran to her, and I knelt to her level as quick as I could. “(She cried.) I was so scared; I felt he was going to attack me… (She cried more.) Thank heavens you came in…”I hugged her and helped her stand up; I hated seeing her like this, in fact this is the first time I see my dear friend in such situation.
“(I helped her sit on the chair, and I sat on one beside her.) He won’t show up anymore I promise. (I sighed.) Angie, I think that after what I saw right now; I should tell you something very important. (She slowed her tears, and looked at me.) I need you to swear on your life, that what you’ll hear right now won’t be spoken of to anyone.” My poor friend nodded, while I breathed out deeply and told her the entire truth about Harry and I.
She took a little while to process everything, to a fan such as her; it’s hard to accept everything I just told her and I understand completely. It was even hard for me in the beginning, to believe that what was going on with me is true. “So, you and the famous Harry Styles, huh?” She smirked and I blushed a little.“Angie, please I don’t want anyone to know about this; I trust you this much to tell you.” She inhaled in silence, and then smiled at me.“Don’t worry, not a single soul will know about this; you have my word darling.” I hugged her as a thank you, and she hugged me back; I guess now things will be less awkward between us, since I won’t be needing to hide anything from her.
The rest of the day was normal for me, and as soon as I finished my shift; I trailed to check my phone. I smiled once I saw a message from Harry, he told me that he was waiting for me in the car; I didn’t find Angela to say good bye so I just took off. As I was walking outside, I thought of whether to tell Harry about what happened today. Should I or should I not? I don’t want to hide away anything, but at the same time I don’t want him worrying about me.
