"No Harry, It's done, we're done"
The haunting words echoed in my ears and through my body, hitting all the nerves and feelings I have shut off over the years. From the moment she turned up in my life, and the moment she left, I knew her being around me was bound to corrupt something dangerous, and yet my thoughts proved me right.
I'm wrong for her, always have been, always will be. I stood at my doorstep, allowing her to walk away, I know she'll come back, she always will.
But something tells me this time is different, something tells me, that she isn't coming back, not this time. I watched her enter her car, pulling out of the drive and speeding off.
"Harry..." Marny's annoying voice strangled in my ear.
"I need you to leave"I said, my eyes on the dust that flung in the air from Tori's tracks.
"But I..." She yelped.
"Go" My voice was impatient and my throat hurt to speak.
Not once my eyes pulled away from the road as Marny scrambled her things together and left, trying her best to gain my attention which was mutually impossible at this moment in time.
I headed back inside, dressing slowly I took my wallet and my keys, leaving the house for the nearest pub possible.
I needed a drink.
It took all of my physical and mental strength to get in my car and pull out of his driveway.
Looking back at him just standing in his door way, his eyes on my car.
I watched the road, taking deep sighs of sadness and tears of pain.
My eyes were bloodshot and cheeks were flushed, my body felt weak and drained, who knew a breakup could make you feel like complete and utter death?
I stared at the screen of my television, only vaguely watching the Loose women rant on about there sex lives.
I darted quickly across the room to where my phone buzzed.
"Hello?" I placed the cold device to my ear.
"Hey Torzi it's Jarred" The voice of my older brother was angelic to my ears.
"Jarred! It's so good to hear from you!" I managed a smile.
"Torzi, I need you to come home, just temporarily, please, come back to Washington" His voice pleaded me in desperation.
"Of course of course, why? what's happened?" I asked, moving quickly to my room, getting on my hands and knee's to retrieve the suitcase out from under my bed.
"It's Mum, she's in hospital"
