This morning I decided to go for a walk. There's a little garden in the backyard that the boys said I could walk through, as long as I didn't leave the premises of the house. Which I wouldn't. I walked through the white gated fence and could smell the beautiful flowers. It was always beautiful here. The weather was always perfect. Sure it got cool at times but it mostly stayed pretty..average. I walked on and found a bench. I sat down and luckily I brought out my book. I was now on chapter 29, Zoey (the character in my book) just realized how much she truly loved her Captivator. It made me think of how close I've become to Harry. But, I don't know if what I was feeling was love. It was probably just a little crush. I kept reading and finished the chapter.
"Kai?" I jumped at Lou's voice.
"Oh, hi Lou. What's wrong?" He looked upset.
"Will you come with me please?" He asked trying to sound a little friendlier.
"Uhm, sure. Is everything okay?" I started getting nervous.
"It will be." He said emphasizing the 'will'. I got up and walked back inside the house with him. He put his hand on my back and led me to the living room where I saw all the other boys gathered on the couch.
"Hey Kai." Liam said with a fake smile. Uh oh, what did I do?
"Hi, what's going on? Is everything okay? I didn't do it I swear!!" They all chuckled at my last sentence.
"Nothing's wrong Kai. We need to talk to you about something though. And it's important." Zayn commented.
"Oh, okay." I sat down on the floor. "What's up?"
"We know you're having a hard time with...you know...lately. I know it's hard to cope with things like this without other loved ones at your side, so...we are letting you go." Liam's last words didn't quite get to me.
"What?" I asked.
"Kai we are letting you go, you're free." Louis stated.
"I'm, I'm free?"
"Yes. We'll help you pack and we will take you home tomorrow. We can't stand seeing you this upset." Niall said, he seemed a little upset about it.
"You mean, I'm going home?! TO MY FAMILY!!" I couldn't believe this! I was going to see my family again! I was no longer held captive anymore, I was free.
Out of all the commotion I looked over and saw Harry leave the room. He didn't once smile during the conversation. He just sat there. I hope he's alright. Maybe I should check on him. "Kai you better get your things packed if we are leaving tomorrow morning." Liam said.
"Oh, right. Okay I'll get right to it." I said with a smile. I couldn't wait! I ran up to my room and started packing.
*at dinner that night*
We all sat around and ate dinner except for Harry. He left to go for a drive. And I know exactly why, he's going to miss her so much. He does truly love her, but she needs to be with her family. "So is he mad at me?" Kai asks, interrupting my thoughts.
"Who?" I ask her.
"What? Noooo, he's just thinking. He'll be alright okay? Don't worry about him he's tough." I said smiling.
"When will he be home?"
"He should be back by 10:30. He always is." I say trying to calm her down a bit.
"Oh, alright. So uhm, who's taking me tomorrow?" She asked changing the subject.
"Well, we were all going to go. And we were thinking around 9:00am? Is that alright with you?"
"Yes! That just means I get to see my family sooner!" She got excited.
"Well, let's just pray they don't pass out when they see you! You've been gone for so long." Zayn said.
"What?!" Kai's face changed to a nervous look. Great! Thanks a lot Zayn!!
"It's fine Kai, Zayn was just joking! Right Zayn?!" I said eyeing him down.
"Oh, uhm yeah! Haha yeup I was just messin with ya!" Zayn tried to to smile, but it was more of a quilty one.
"It's alright guys, I know their going to be a little surprised but they're my parents. They'll want me either way." Kai smiled.
"Phewph!" Zayn let out a breath of air. "Man I thought that was gonna end up with anther ending."
"Like what?" Kai asked raising an eyebrow.
"Well I thought you'd start crying and get all emoti-uhm you know I'm kinda tired. I'm gonna head off to bed." He said after I have him a glare to shutup!
"Haha alright goodnight." Kai giggled.
"I'm kinda full too." Louis stated. "I vote Niall does the dishes!" Then he ran to his room.
"What?!" Niall yelled. "That's not fair! My vote goes to Liam!" Then he was gone as well.
"Haha, I'll help you Liam." Kai said politely.
"No, no it's fine I got it." I tried but she instinctively took the plates from me and emptied them into the trash can. "Alright looks like you're helpin me."
"Looks like I am." She said grinning.
It's 11:00pm and Harry still isn't home! He should've been home 30minutes ago! Ugh! He knows I'm leaving tomorrow! Why would he do this to me? I turned off my lights and climbed up into bed. It felt weird falling asleep without Harry though. Ever since Caleb's incident Harry has slept in my bed with me. It helped me fall asleep faster. He'd rub my back and play with my hair. But now that he's gone it's different. Ugh! I can't sleep! I got up and walked to the kitchen. I had to get my mind off of things.
Once in the kitchen I turned the coffee pot on and made some coffee. I know coffee usually makes one stay awake but it makes me sleepy. I figured if I can't fall asleep then why not try some home remedies? While the coffee was being made I pulled out a chair from the table and sat down in it. It was quiet in the house, all except one of the boys snoring. I was about to close my eyes to relax when I saw a light out of the corner of my eye. He was home.
I waited in the chair until he came in. He walked into the kitchen and didn't notice me. I watched as he got a cup from the cabinet and poured himself some coffee. His back muscles flexed as he reached his arms different directions. I waited quietly and patiently. Finally I couldn't take this. He didn't even realize I was in the same room as him. I stood up from the table, which made Harry jump. "Kai?! Oh man you scared the living crud out of me!" He set down his cup. "Why are you up so late?" He asked.
"It doesn't matter I'm going to bed now so goodnight." I turned and walked towards the stair case.
"Whoa whoa whoa! Wait, what's the matter?" He honestly doesn't know?
"Nothing." I turned around and kept going.
"Kai." He grabbed my arm.
"What?!" I asked.
"What did I do?" He asked with a confused look on his face.
"Are you serious? You really don't know?" He shook his head.
"Uh, no." He said emphasizing the 'no'.
"Ha, I'm leaving tomorrow Harry! Tomorrow morning!! And you didn't even spend ten minutes with me!!" I jerked my arm out of his grasp and continued walking up the stairs, only this time it was a slight jog.
"KAI! Wait! I'm sorry!" He ran after me.
"Save it Harry it's fine."
"No it's not fine! You're right I should have stayed but I had to get my mind off of things!"
"Like what?!" I yelled, shooting around to face him.
"What?!" I asked feeling hurt.
"No! No no no! Not like that! I mean that you're leaving!"
"Stop! Just go to bed Harry." I said before this turned into a fight.
"No. Not till we work this out!" He grabbed both my arms and stood me up against the wall. He loosened his grip when he saw the fear in my eyes. "Hhh, Kai, I had to get my mind off of you somehow. I can't stand the thought of you leaving me! I've only known you for like four months, but I've come to realize something...I love you.." What? Did he just say..."It's true Kai. It really is! I can't stand being away from you! And when you're upset it crushes me! I don't want you to go but you need to, I know it's best for you to be with your family. I'm sorry if I scared you. Look, if you really want to go then go, but just know that when you leave, I'm always here alright?" He then let go and started to walk away. I just stood there in shock. He loved me. I ran up to him and quickly turned him around.
"Where do you think your going!?" I asked.
"To bed." He said in a calm tone.
"But you forgot something." I said.
"This." I then stood on my tip toes and kissed him. He kissed back automatically and wrapped one of his arms around my waist and the other around my neck. My hands made there way to his curly locks. After about 20 seconds we pulled away and were both breathing heavy. He set his forehead on mine and kissed my nose.
"Thanks for not letting me forget that." He said smirking with a wide smile. "You better go to bed, it's late."
"Hhh, alright. Goodnight Haz." I said smiling.
"Goodnight love." He then disappeared into his room and I in mine.
I walked up the stairs to my bed and got in. I still couldn't sleep. I tossed and turned and nothing made me comfortable. I turned to face my walk and tried again to fall asleep but nothing happened. I then felt someone crawl into my bed with me. I turned around and saw his beautiful green eyes. "Can't sleep?" He asked.
"No." Was all I said.
"It's okay. I'm here." He then pulled me close to him and wrapped his arms around me. I immediately relaxed and was comfortable. "Goodnight Kai."
"Goodnight Harry." I said before drifting off to sleep.
