Chapter 23 (Cont.)
I dropped the note. My heart beat slowed, my breathing slowed. Everything grew still and my head throbbed. I stood up trying to gain control of my body. I breathed deeply and my chest was pounding. "Harry!!" I heard Liam yell. He ran over to me. "Haz what happened? What's wrong?!"
"The note." I said looking straight forward. I slid back down the book case. Liam bent down and picked up the note. His eyes began to water as he read the words that brought me into the position.
"Haz...." He stuttered. "I..." A year ran down his face. "She-she didn't even say goodbye." His voice cracked and more tears flooded down his face.
"Liam!" I bawled. "She's really gone! She isn't coming back!! I have to get her back Liam I have to! I can't live without her!" I brought my hands up to my face to cover my crying expression.
"Harry....I know it's hard, but..."he paused for a moment trying to think of what to say. "..but, at least she's still alive..you don't have to kill her like I had to do to Dia-" his voice cracked and he choked back tears. "...Diana..she's still out there Harry. And even though she may be gone now, she'll be back. I just know she will." He then stood up and left, I could hear Louis talking to him about what's happened. Liam told him everything but told him not to bug me right now. But I don't want to be left alone right now! I want her to sit here with me and dry my tears! But she's gone, and now the only thing that can wipe my tears away is my sleeve.
My eyes burned with tears. My face was all puffy and I was still shaking from when I had to write the note. He probably hates me now. All of them do, I can't ever go back now! I have to forget my past and look forwards to my future.
The Cab turns onto a road I haven't seen in four months. We pass a few old buildings and the play ground I use to walk through. And then I saw it. The tiny framed building with little frayed windows. A tiny chimney that always blew smoke out the top. Lighted with dozens of Christmas lights that never came down. My home.
The man in the Cab brought me my suitcase, that Liam bought me, and then he left. I walked up to my front doorstep and set my luggage down. This was it, whether my parents wanted me back or not was about to be discussed right now. I lifted up my hand and slowly brought it up to the door.
I waited awhile. But nothing happened. I knocked again a bit louder this time. But still no one came. I didn't understand, the lights were on and the tv was even running. I knock one more time and then gave up. They weren't going to open the door and I was to nervous to just walk right on in. I haven't seen them in months and they probably forgot about me. I turned around and started towards the road with my luggage in my hand. "Hello?" I heard. I turned around and looked at the man to use to cheer me up when I was down.
"Daddy?!" I yelled.
"K....Kai...It can't be! Y-you're..."I interrupted him by running into his arms. He held me tight and I let the rest of my tears out. I couldn't believe this was actually happening. "Baby girl!! I can't believe this! The police said you were dead! And no matter how hard we tried to persuade them that you weren't they wouldn't believe us!!" He squeezed me tighter.
"I've missed you daddy!" I said softly. Then I heard the door open.
"Honey what's going on? Who is th-" my mother paused when she saw me pull away from my fathers embrace.
"Hi mama.." I said.
"This can't be...Kai, oh Kai!!"
"MAMA!!" We ran to each other and she wrapped her loving arms around me. I've missed her so much! We were so close and nothing ever brought us apart. "I've missed you mama!" I cried.
"I've missed you so much more!" She replied. "Where have you been? Are you hurt?! Do we need to contact the police?!?"
"NO!" I yelled. "Don't call the police....everything's fine. I'll explain later." I said, then together the three of us walked inside hand in hand. Boy do I have a lot of explaining to do...
