30. Chapter 30
“Hey there you guys are! We were just leaving.” El exclaims to Harry and I with Perrie at her side. I give her a sympathetic look but she doesn’t look at me. She’s still upset about what ‘happened’ to me. She looks like she’s about to burst into tears. If only she knew the real story.
“So soon?” Harry asks raising an eyebrow. From the corner of my eye I see Louis give Harry a strange look.
“Yeah I just really wanted to meet Amelia and now I have.” She says motioning over to me and its only now I see her eyes are glassy with unshed tears. Poor girl. She’s way too sweet and innocent to be involved with guys like Louis. Same with Perrie. I wonder if they were forced into this just like me. Nah or they would have cuts and bruises like me and they would know who I really am.
“Yeah sure.” Harry mumbles glancing briefly at Louis before looking at his feet. I look between the two guys in confusion but shake it off. Probably some weird guy code.
“Well it was lovely meeting you Amelia.” Perrie says walking over to me and embracing me in a firm hug. I awkwardly hug back not knowing what else to do. I hear Zayn cough behind me so I let her go.
“Take care of yourself Amelia. I know you’re in good hands with the guys around you all the time but….” El says trailing off and I nod at her in understanding. Wow my story really hit her hard. It’s funny because I should be the one crying but its her. I only notice now how tense all of the boys look at El’s words and I mentally roll my eyes. Yeah I’m in great hands with these guys. I wonder who’s going to rape and abuse me next…..
“Come on girls.” Louis says taking hold of El’s hand and walking out with Zayn and Perrie close behind leaving Niall, Liam, Harry and I. Great.
“Where were you guys just now?” Niall asks Harry and I accusingly raising an eyebrow.
“I don’t like that tone.” Harry mumbles and Niall raises his hands up in surrender.
“I just though you….yanno had a quickie.” Niall asks smirking but Harry remains tense and rather….angry? I can’t tell. Most of the time Harry’s angry anyway. I glare at Niall but do nothing else knowing I’ll probably get a beating for it later on.
“No. I didn’t have a ‘quickie’ Niall.” Harry says through gritted teeth. Niall steps back in defeat and confusion. It goes silent while the two guys have a stare down.
“Well I’m gonna let you guys sort out your differences alone. Come on Amelia.” My head snaps at the mention of my name. Liam holds out his hand for me to take. Oh hell nah! He’s gonna rape me! I gaze impassively at Liam’s hand not daring to look in his eyes.
“No she stays with me.” Harry says demandingly. Liam snaps his gaze to Harry and gives him a weird look. I frown at Liam but say nothing. The tension in the room increases dramatically and I shift from foot to foot.
I suddenly feel Liam’s hand grasp my forearm tightly. Very tightly. There is definitely gonna be a mark there to join the others scattered all over my body. Great.
“Let. Her. Go.” Harry says his voice filled with rage. He turns to look at Liam forgetting about Niall momentarily. Liam’s grip only tightens on my arm causing me to whimper in pain.
“Why? What if I want her right now?” Liam asks mockingly. I knew it. He was going to rape me.
“You can’t have her.” harry retorts and Liam’s eyebrows shoot up.
“That’s not what we agreed to. It looks like you were right Niall, he does have feelings for her.” Liam says looking at Niall grimly. Harry and I both gape at his words. No fucking way. There is no way he has feelings for me! Right….?
“Are you insane?” Harry chokes out.
“Not as insane as you apparently. You can’t have feelings for her! She’s here for all of our needs not just yours.” Liam says narrowing his eyes but still keeping his firm grip on me.
“I don’t have feelings for her!” Harry shouts in irritation but Liam still keeps his ground.
“Yes you do its written all over you! Why? Is it because she reminds you of Mia?!” Liam taunts. Oh fuck. Now he’s stepped the line and Harry’s gonna be double pissed. As I said I seem to always be in the fucking middle of everything.
“Don’t you fucking dare bring Mia into this!” Harry spits storming over to Liam and I.
“Hey man, I’m on your side here I’m just trying to figure out why you won’t let any of us touch her anymore.” Liam says backing away slightly from Harry.
“Look. I’m in charge of things around here and when I say you can’t touch her I fucking mean it.” Harry seethes.
“Now I’m only gonna ask you once more, let her go.” He says also narrowing his eyes at Liam. Liam clenches his jaw obviously trying to hold in his anger.
“Fine.” He spits before roughly letting me go and pushing me away towards Harry. Liam glares at him before storming off. Niall soon joins him shooting Harry the same death stare.
I close my eyes such in exhaustion. Why did I have to get involved with these guys? They are driving me insane quite literally.
“I guess I should go to bed.” I state quietly. When I get no reply I let out a sharp breath before walking over to my room.
As soon as I reach my room I plop myself onto the bed and think. It can’t be true can it? He can’t have feelings for me. He’s been nothing but horrible to me.
But now that I think about it…..
“I don’t know what makes you so different. I want to say it’s because you remind me of Mia but I’m not sure.
“I’ll never let you get away from me.”
The things he’s said to me. That I’m somehow ‘different’. Is this why he can’t punish me?
Or maybe I’m thinking too deeply about this.
My hand travels down to the ‘Harry’ scar imprinted on my arm. But he can’t fall for a girl like me. He’s a monster.
A beautiful monster nonetheless.
