"your soulmate is the one

who mends your

broken heart,

by simply giving you theirs."



Sitting on the couch, watching tv, eating ice cream, in awkward silence is I don't know about you, but for me, not ideal.

We've been sitting here letting our brains rot for the past hour and a half.

Not being able to handle the silence any longer I ask him,

"Why are you here?"

"What do you mean?" Turning to look at me he gave me a puzzled look.

"Why are you here taking care of me? Why don't you just go home?"

Running his hands down his face and sighing he positioned his whole body so it was facing me.

"Burgon. I don't want this to scare you away, make you mad, and I don't want you to think differently of me after I tell you this. But I care about you okay? I promised myself that I would fix you-"

"That's not your job Harry. I am 18, I'm perfectly capable of taking care of myself. I don't need to be fixed. I don't need to be cared about. I've raised myself, look where I am. I'm going to school, I'm going after my dream. And I did it on my own. I don't need you Harry."

Raising his voice he said to me,

"But you do Burgon! Sure, you raised yourself, and you're here going to college. But don't forget the part where you attempted suicide Burgon. Suicide!"

Yelling right back at him,

"That was the only choice Harry! I can't live with myself! even just looking in the mirror makes me sick to my stomach! The things that have happened to me, Harry.."

I burst into tears. Not wanting him to see me cry, I get off the couch and stumble into my bedroom. Of course him being Harry, he follows me right in.


"Just stop! Harry! I can't do this! you don't understand! We're two different people! I'm a worthless, suicidal girl! And you a famous popstar! don't you see this Harry? You have everything you could ever want-"

He kissed me.

Are you kidding me.

In the middle of our stupid argument.

He kissed me.

Pulling back, he whispered in my ear,

"But I don't have you. That's what I want."


You should read it. ↓

Okay. Some people have asked me why the heck I would have the main girl attempt suicide in the very beginning. This isn't one of those fanfics where he meets a girl and they fall in love and live happily ever after, okay? This book is about Harry trying to fix Burgon in their 'Pursuit of Happiness.' Hah. Sorry. Had to throw that in. But really that's what it's about. There definitely will be some romance, but probably not in the cookie cutter way you'd expect. There. All done.
