22. Chapter 22
"Ella?" Leah knocked on my door with a soft voice.
"Leah? Is that you?" I asked blowing my nose.
"Yeah. Can I come in?" She asked poking her head through the door.
"Yeah," I said pathetically. Leah let her self in and sat next to me.
"I'm so sorry," she said looking down. "I didn't know you two were..." She looked at me and a tear slid down her cheek. "Where's Belle?" She asked changing the topic.
"Harry," I said looking down. "I'm in no shape to care for a baby." I laughed at the thought of Belle being here.
"Where's Harry and the baby?" She asked rubbing my back.
"Harry and a Belle are with Anne. And I trust Anne."
"I thought you would hate all of Harry's family because-" Leah hesitated to finish her sentence.
"Harry cheated on me, not his family," I said as tears uncontrollably slid down my cheeks.
"Is that Harry's sweater?" She asked. I nodded and cried in my knees.
"The house feels empty. I'm cold and sleeping in my bed alone. I threw away or gave Harry all the pictures that included him. I didn't want him to see Belle but when he game to get his things I-I-" I stopped tearing up and went into a full on sob mode. Leah embraced me in a warm hug as I cried in her shoulder.
"Oh Elle. What happened last night?" Leah asked concerned.
"He came to pick up his stuff and Val came with him," I began to cry even harder. "When she saw me... she smiled at me crying my heart out. She laughed at me. The girl who was my best friend! She enjoyed that I was in pain! Harry told me Belle would be better off staying with him and Anne! I did it because I love my baby!" I cried harder and harder between each word.
