"Sir, you need to go to a therapist or a..um...mentally ill hospital." The receptionist backed away from Harry.
Harry just rolled his eyes.
"Harry!" I ran toward him, but he completely ignored me. "Harry, I know you can hear me." I put my hand on his shoulder. "Can we talk?"
I grabbed his hand and pulled him to sit down. "Harry, I'm so sorry."
"Do you love me?"
"Do you Nikki? Or did you only come down here so you won't be responsible for almost killing somebody again?"
"I don't know if I love you Harry. But I do know that both me and Liam love each other. I couldn't do this to him."
"For me? Please?"
"I can't! I'm serious!"
Harry's face turned red like he was about to cry. "I've dedicated 3 years of my life to you. I got a tattoo of your name. Tattoos never go away. For the rest of my life, I will have the name of a girl who doesn't even love me written on my arm."
"I didn't tell you to get a tattoo! You did that yourself! If I would've known that you were going to do that, I would've talked you out of it!"
"You can't talk me out of loving you." He looked up at me, with tears in his eyes. "Am I your second choice?"
"What like if Liam and I weren't together?"
"I guess so....there's a lot that goes into it."
"Like what? There's something that's holding you back from me! What is it? Am I not buff enough? I can work out! Tell me, I'll fix it!"
"No Harry. You're plenty buff." I looked at his biceps. Dang. He noticed me staring and winked. "No that's not the point. I'm with Liam. And me and you are better off as friends." I got up to go back up to Louis' room. Harry came behind me and wrapped his arms around me before I could even get to the elevator.
"Please?" He whispered in my ear while leaving kisses up and down my neck.
"Harry." I tried to fight his grip. "People are watching!!" I mumbled.
He released me. "I know you like me, Nikki. Think about it. Every time you and Liam get in a fight, or you just want a break.....I would be there. Wouldn't it be nice to have a second boyfriend? One who doesn't care that you have another one?" He raised his eyebrows.
It would be nice to get away every now and then. But I can't do that to Liam and Taylor. They need me. But Harry treats me the way I've always wanted to be treated....
"Well what?" I quickly answered, recovering from my daydream.
"Listen. I know this is hard for you. So I'll give you 24 hours. By tomorrow I want an answer. If you say no to my offer, you will never see my again. And I mean never. But if you say yes...well you could save a life." He grinned.
"Whatever." I got in the elevator and went up to Louis' room. I made sure Harry followed me the entire way up. "Hey Louis! Sorry it took so long!"
"Thats fine, Nikki. I ate your food." He laughed and looked at Harry. "Where in the world did you go?"
"I had to pee." Harry kept a straight face.
"And you joined him Nikki?" Louis raised his eyebrows.
"NO! I was looking for him the whole time. I didn't see him until he walked out the restroom."
"Okay then..." Louis winked at me.
I just put on fake giggle and sat down. Harry and I ate the food that was left over while Louis watched Real Housewives of New Jersey. I kept noticing Harry staring at me. I can't believe he wants me to choose between he and Liam. What am I saying....I'm not choosing. I'm already with Liam. Who cares if we get in fights sometimes? Every couple does. We'll always get through it. I know we will....I hope we will.
Once Harry and I finished our food, we said goodbye to Louis and left the hospital. I don't think Louis was enjoying us being there. We got back in the parking lot, and Harry started going toward the subway again.
"Harry do you want me to give you a ride home?"
He smiled and followed me into my car. We didn't talk except for when he was giving me directions to his apartment building. We pulled up. I remember this place. He lives in the penthouse. "Does this bring you back some memories Nikki?"
I nodded. I stared up at the top of the building.
"I changed the wallpaper in my bedroom. Do you want to come see?"
"Sure." We both got out the car, and I followed him in the building. We got escorted into the elevator. We went up, and up, until we got to the penthouse. "Wow. It's so beautiful in here."
"Thanks. Do you want a drink?"
"Sure I'll have some water."
"Oh come on." He pulled out a tall bottle of vodka from his fridge. "It's only one night."
"Oh...I can't stay all night. Liam and Taylor are waiting for me. I just came up here to see your new wallpaper."
"Please?" He set the bottle down at moved closer to me. "I can change your mind about being with Liam. I know you want me to. And I know you already have your decision made."
"I'll give it a shot. You have one chance, Styles. I'm serious. If you tell anybody, I will personally ruin your life."
He nodded and kissed me. "I knew you'd say yes."
