“Whatever, you broke my heart!”
Those words cut like knives. I felt a sharp pain in my chest, I was so hurt by Niall’s feelings towards me.
“I didn’t kiss her, she kissed me!” I said to him, but I was too late Niall had already ran back into the school. I was fighting back the tears now, I still couldn’t believe that I had lost him, that he didn’t love me anymore, I felt so sad.
“Well that’s what you get for being gay” I heard Caroline say as she mocked me to my face.
“To hell with you, you bloody whore!”
“Oh Harry, don’t be so sad, it’s not like anything would ever last”.
“Go Fucking Die!” I spat.
“Don’t worry Harry, you’ll be mine again soon” I heard her heels clicking on the pavement as she walked away leaving me alone in the parking lot. I glance down at my watch 12:00 it read, I still have half an hour until classes start, enough time to find Niall and explain.
I can’t believe what I just saw, her hands on his body, his lips touching hers, I just wanted the image out of my head. Why was I so foolish and smitten with the idea things could work out for the best? Nothing ever worked out for me, that’s why I lef Mullingar, because everyone turned on me and drove me away. I had friends since I was five turn their backs on me, and parents shake their heads as I walked the streets downtown. I thought things would be different in England, I really did, now I just set my self up for ridicule and abuse. How could this happen again? I didn’t want this to happen…
“Aye Mate you ok?” I looked up to see Liam looking at me very concerned and Danielle followed by Louis, Eleanor, Perrie, and Zayn walk up to join him.
“Is everything ok?” Perrie asked.
“No, when I went to look for Harry I found him, but with Caroline” Perrie clenched her fists then cracked her knuckles ready to instigate a fight.
“What did you see?” asked Louis.
“Caroline… kissing Harry….” I murmured softly.
“What?” cried everyone.
“Yes….” I just looked up and broke into a million pieces. Zayn caught me before I fell and rubbed my back while he told me everything was going to be alright. The rest gathered around and questioned why Harry would kiss Caroline, or whether she kissed him in hopes of getting him back. In the end Liam and Danielle talked Perrie out of killing Caroline but no one still had any idea about why the kiss happened.
Harry didn’t show to Psychology or Math and I got worried, was he really as broken as I was or was he just avoiding all the questions and bantering to follow by the gang. I asked Zayn to check up on him later just to make sure he was safe and well. I really don’t even know why I asked Zayn to do that, it’s not like I really cared for him anymore… or did I?
“Hey Mrs. Styles” I said as the door was opened.
“Oh Zayn! I’ve known you for years, just call me Anne!”
“Uh Ok, Is Harry home?”
“Yes he came home after lunch, he is up in his room, you know where it is”.
“No problem Zayn!”
I walked the flight of stairs to find the door to Harry’s room closed shut. I knocked, no answer, knocked again and still nothing. “Go away mom” I heard on the other side. “Harry it is Zayn open up” I heard the bed creak as he got up and made his way to the door, the sound of his feet sticking to the hardwood. He opened the door and sat back on his bed in a hurry but wouldn’t look at me.
“I guess Niall told you what went down?” he said.
“Yeah, he said you didn’t go to third and I never saw you in fourth”.
“Oh, about that I just couldn’t face him. I went back to the caf looking for him and saw you holding him as he cried his eyes out. I just couldn’t bear the judgment of everyone.”
“No one was going to judge you, everyone was just very confused by why you and Caroline Flack had your mouths attached to each other.”
“She kissed me, I got a text from her in English asking to meet her in the parking lot and then she just pounced like a cougar. I pushed her away as soon as she kissed me, but then I saw Niall looking straight at us, but when I went to explain he wouldn’t listen to me”
“Oh….” Was all I could say, Harry was my best friend and he was really hurting. I really didn’t know what to say or do to make anything better but I was sure as hell not going to let Caroline toy with him anymore.
“I really do love him” was all I heard before his head crashed onto my lap, all I could do was just sit there and keep him company. How could someone be so ruthless and get away with this? Why was Caroline so bent on making Harry and Niall so miserable? Even I could plainly see that they were meant for each other.
