"YOU QUIT?!?!" I could feel my muscles tensing up.
"Yeah....she wasn't treating me right." Liam looked at the ground like he was a kid in the principal's office.
"Liam! You might not always get along with people! You can't quit because of it! How are we gonna keep up with all the bills now? We were barely making it before!" I handed Taylor a piece of my croissant. She loves Starbucks food more than I do.
"I'm sorry! Why don't you get a better job? Maybe then we could keep up with the bills!" Liam covered his mouth as soon as the words came out of his mouth.
"Wow. It's not as easy for me to get a job as it is for you! Do you realize that? I'm seventeen!"
"I had an internship with a law firm when I was your age! That's not an excuse!" Liam raised his voice with every word. I stood up grabbing my coffee and Taylor. "No Nikki I'm sorry. Please don't go." Liam grabbed my arm, spilling my coffee all down his chest. "OW! That's hot!"
"It's coffee did you expect it to be cold?" I dropped the cup and continued walking. I didn't look back once. Even when I got in the car.
My phone started ringing and didn't stop. Liam doesn't give up does he? I finally got tired of the annoying buzzing sound and answered. "What?"
"Charlotte told me she wants me back...in a way."
"When I ran out the store, that's what she said." He sighed, like he was relieved to tell me.
"Oh....well why are you telling me this?"
"I want us to both be COMPLETELY honest with each other! I don't want any secrets!"
My head started pounding. "Okay..."
"What did I say something wrong?"
"I know. I know you're with Harry. Don't deny it. I've heard it from everyone. I'm giving you another chance though...for Taylor's sake."
I was silent for a second, not knowing what to say.
"Nikki are you still there?"
"Yeah. I'll call it off I swear."
"I love you."
"I love you too. I'll be home in a second."
"Oh yeah. Do you want me to turn around and get you?"
"No you're probably almost home by now. And I've already started walking toward the subway."
I hung up, feeling like crap. Who told him about me and Harry? No one knew! And we've only been going for a day! Unless Louis put the pieces together....no. Lou wouldn't do that to Harry and I. I dialed Harry's number on my phone. I know he's gonna be angry that I can't sneak around anymore. But he's gonna have to get over it.
"Hey Harry! What's up?"
"Not much...just thinking of you."
I laughed under my breath. "About that...I can't do this anymore."
"What? Why not?"
I pulled into my driveway and put my phone in between my shoulder and ear as I got out the car. "Liam found out. It's for our own good though. I shouldn't have said yes in the first place."
"Remember what I told you?"
I took Taylor out of the car and brought her inside. "No...I don't think so."
"I'm leaving. I told you I can't stand seeing you everyday as just a friend. Trust me, you'll never see me again."
"Harry don't you think you're dragging this out a little bit? We can still be friends!"
"No Nikki. No we can't....you know what?"
"I'll be right there."
"What?" He hung up the phone. What could he possibly mean? I sat down on the couch and put my head in my hands. Then I heard a knock at the door. Liam stood in the doorway, smiling from ear to ear.
"Did you talk to Harry?"
"What did he-" Liam's face turned white, and he fell to the floor.
"LIAM?!" I ran over to him to see blood coming out of his back, a bullet in the middle of the mess. I grabbed my phone and dialed 911 as quickly as I could.
It was ringing when I heard something drop. I looked to my left, out the door. Harry stood with his hands in the air, the gun at his feet.
