Chapter 27 (The Departure)
I start tossing and turning. Ow why does my head hurt. I groaned as I sat up from my bed. I looked out the window and realize it was night time. I grabbed my phone and checked the time. It's 2:54 Am, almost 3:00 Am. I stood up from my bed knowing that I won't be going back to sleep. I started to pace back and forth thinking about what happened yesterday.
"No go. I want you to go like I said. This is a great opportunity. I don't want you to be those people who are being used like a toy. Look at yourself Selena! You don't like your old self. Being in Los Angeles will change your life, it will make it better ok. Just go ok." He spat at me. I cried loud letting people watch us. Harry no you can't do this.
"Haz please don't do this." I whispered softly. Trying to control my crying.
"I'm sorry Sel, Just go ok. I'll be fine." He said before he entered the men's washroom.
What Harry had said to me yesterday was true. Im not my old self anymore. Maybe Los Angeles is the best place for me. Publicity, fans and new friends. I can even send Money back here to help Aunt Anne with the rent. It may feel lonely without Harry but I might have to grow out of it.
I don't blame Harry but I blame myself for everything, well I am a bit of mad of Harry for yelling at me but I can't blame him yet again. I knew telling him about Justin coming with us to Los Angeles is a pain to him but I had to tell, he would find out sooner of later. Wait a minute, if Im going to live in Los Angeles then what would happen to Harry and I. I want some water now actually.
I opened my door trying not to make it crack and walked out of my room. I slowly pass Harry's room, I didn't want to deal with him now and made my way downstairs. In relief I opened the refrigerator and grabbed a fresh bottle of water. As I closed the fridge door, I found a pair of green eyes staring at me. I dropped my water bottle in fear. I quickly turned on the lights and found Harry standing beside the counter.
"What are you doing here?!" I whispered loudly picking up my water bottle from the ground since I dropped it. He gave me a smirk.
"The question is what are 'you' doing here?" he said softly, air quoting the you part. I knew we had to keep our voices low since Aunt Anne is still asleep.
"I just came here to get some water. You?" I asked while opening the lid of my water bottle. He shrugged his shoulders.
"I just wanted to say that I'm sorry about you know yesterday at school. I didn't mean to snap at you, it's just Justin coming with you and Demi to Los Angeles. That's actually pretty shocking." he said scratching the back of his neck. He looked unstable and in confident about tomorrow. I took a big gulp of water from my water bottle.
"Look Haz if you don't want me to go that I-"
"No I want you to go. This is better than your normal life her in Canada. You going to Los Angeles, that's a pretty big step especially when your going to be famous."
"If you want me to go then I'll do it for you." I smiled. He pulled me into a hug, the hug that I will miss.
I woke up early since I have to go to the airport at 9:00 am. It's already 7:01 and I need to get everything prepared. I decided to leave some of my stuff here since I don't really have a big suit case and probably Demi and I are going to do a lot of shopping to say the least. I stood up from my bed and entered my bathroom all tired and sleepy.
As usual, I took my shower and brushed my teeth. After that, I decided to wear my white tee and ripped jean shorts since it's hot in Los Angeles. I applied some makeup as little as possible since I wanted to look natural. I checked the mirror to see if I was ok, I smiled at myself at the mirror before taking all of my things with me. I slowly walked downstairs to the kitchen with my things and settled them down beside the door.
"Selena!" Aunt Anne called out. She looked at me with tears in her eyes. Her arms were wide open telling me she wanted a hug. I smiled at her and gave her my best hug.
"My little angel is all grown up." she cried out. I giggled but let a year fall down my cheek. I removed myself from Aunt Anne and looked at her with tears in my eyes fully.
"I'm going to miss you too Aunt Anne." I said letting my crying have control over me. She awed at me and pulled me into a hug again.
"Where's Harry?" I asked wiping my tears off my face. She did the same thing as me.
"He's waiting for you outside in the car, you want some breakfast before you go?" She asked. I waved my hand indicating no. I actually want to have a breakfast burrito from subway.
"No it's alright but thank you for asking. I'll just buy a breakfast burrito along to way." I giggled softly. She smiled at me again as I see the tears in her eyes form again.
"Oh I'm going to miss my little angel." she cried out again while pulling me into a hug. I'm going to miss Aunt Anne for sure, she was like a second mom to me when my mom passed away. I let a tear fall off my face.
"I'm going to miss you Aunt Anne, I promise I'll contact you almost everyday if I have time." I promised. I knew if I didn't have my phone, laptop, or email, I wouldn't be able to contact anybody and that would be sad. I removed myself again from Aunt Anne and grabbed a water bottle from the fridge. As soon as I got my water bottle, I picked up my suitcase and checked the time. Its 7:27 AM. It is best for me to go there early just incase. I walked straight to the door.
"Bye Aunt Anne, I'll miss you so much." I shouted from the door. She poked her head from the living room then ran to me with something large in her hands. She gave me the thing that was in her hands, it appears to be a book. I looked at it confused.
"What's this?" I asked, she smiled at me while placing her hand on the cover of it.
"Its the photo album that you and Harry had putted together when you were little." She spoke happily. I looked back at the cover shocked. The cover had a bunny on it and a puppy on it.
(7 years Old)
"Haz, you be the puppy an I'll be the bunny ok?" I asked Harry. He took the sticker panel and handed it to me.
"Ok I love puppies. (*woof, woof, woof*)" he said. I laughed at him as I took the sticker of a bunny and placed it beside my name on the front of the photo book. I watched Haz put his puppy sticker beside his. I stood up from my position and waved the photo book that we made.
"We finish! We finish! We finish Haz!" I yelled happily. I started dancing moving our finished photo book in the air.
"Yay!! Nice job Selly. You are a very good maker." Harry said. I walked over to him and gave him a hug.
"Awe." Someone said. Me and Haz turned around finding my mom and Aunt Anne.
"Mommy look, Haz and I are finish." I giggled. I ran to my mommy and showed her our photo book.
"Wow that looks amazing. nice job Selena, nice job Harry." my mom said. She gave me a big hug.
"Let me join in Aunt Mandy." Haz said as he ran to give me and mommy and big group hug. After we hug, I saw Aunt Anne, running with a camera in her hands.
"Alright you three, say Cheese!" Aunt Anne said while placing the camera in front of her eye.
"CHEESE!" I yelled along with Haz. Aunt Anne took the picture and out came the photo from the camera. I watched it fall on the ground, Haz picked it up.
"Hey Selly, can we put this in the photo book?" Haz said while holding it up. I smiled at him and opened up the photo book.
"Sure ok." I said while opening the glue stick. I took the photo and glued it on our photo book. Once we were done I gave it to mommy.
"Look mommy, Me and Haz have our first Picture." I said while pointing at our photo.
"Yeah now you can put all of your photos in here." my mom said smiling.
"And when you too grow, you can go look back at your photos and see what you look like when you were little." Aunt Anne said. While putting her camera back in the drawer.
"Yeah! Were going to be big kids Haz!." I shouted as I gave Haz a big Hug.
"Can't wait to be an adult." Haz said giggling.
I sighed at the memories that happened through the years. I was the loud one in the pack, Harry well was shy and quiet sometimes but I've seen him go loud and crazy at times. I looked at Aunt Anne who is seems to be crying. I placed my hand on the side of the photo album, as I was about to open it. Aunt Anne stopped me by placing her hand on top of mine using her weight in her hands to push it close.
"No, wait until you get there." she whispered to me. I smiled at her, letting a tear fall.
"You are the best Aunt Anne. I love you." I said wrapping my arms around her. Once I had pulled away, I grabbed my suit case and rolled it down the patio stairs. As I waved goodbye, I made my way to the car while wiping my tears away. When I got to he car, I looked inside but no one was there. The engine has started but no ones in there. I took the photo album that Aunt Anne had given to me and placed it inside my suitcase pocket before settling it down on the ground. I looked around looking for Harry with my eyes full of lust.
"Haz?" I called out. No answer. I began to wonder if he is inside the house or probably taking a pee behind a bush. Hilarious Harry. I started to walked around the car and back to my original spot. I still no sign of Harry. I sighed at myself as I checked the time. 7:34 Am. Im going to be late if it struck's 8:00 Am. I tilted my head a bit but no Harry.
"Where is he, Im going to be-" Before I could finish my sentence. Two large hands had covered my eyes.
"What the, who turned the lights off." I called out, I could hear someone chuckle behind me. I started feeling the two hands covering my eyes, it felt soft and huge. Defiantly Harry's Hands.
"Guess who?" Harry said in a low voice. If I didn't know it was Harry, then I would probably think its a hobo from the voice.
"Ah let's see, Bruno Mars." I said trying sound like I didn't know who this person was. A hint of laughter was crawling up my throat making me giggle a bit.
"No." He said keeping his voice low. I could feel his hands sweat. Oh Harry.
"Um, Austin Mahone." I guessed again. Oh this is so fun. I started to giggle loudly then before.
"Nope!" he said popping the P. I was surprised that he dropped his low voice act and is starting to use his normal voice.
"Then Josh Hutcherson." My last guess was official. Once I had said that, he removed his hands and looked at me with a smirk. I smiled at him.
"Really? Josh Hutcherson. I mean you pick him over me don't you." he said. Before I could say something, he spoke first beating me to it.
"What is it with you and Josh Hutcherson, you think he is sexier then me" he explained with a smirk in his face. I tried to say something again but He spoke first.
"No I-" I started off but was ignored.
"No Selly, I don't want you fan girling me about Josh Hutcherson now." He said crossing his arms with a smile on his face. I sighed.
"Haz! Im going to be late." I reminded him. He then stopped acting like jealous Harry and snapped back into the real world.
"Oh Crap I forgot. We better get moving." He said as he quickly lifted my suit case and place it in the trunk.
I heard something growl and it sounded pretty close. I looked around my surroundings and found out that I was hungry with an upset stomach. I better tell Harry about the breakfast burrito.
"Haz wait I-"
"Come on princess, you'll miss your flight." he said as he lifted me up in bridal style and carried my inside the car in the passenger seat.
"Harry...." I screamed as he lifted me up. When he carried me to the passenger seat, I looked at him trying to get mad at him but I just couldn't get a straight face.
"Harry.... you know I have two legs that work perfectly fine." I whined. He then looked at me with a smirked and shook his head before he could close my car door. I waited for him to come inside the car on the drivers seat, still waiting for my reply.
"I know but it's fun to see your reaction when I carry you." He admit with a chuckle before putting the car on drive. I watched him drive away to the airport. I got a little bored and tired so I took out my phone. I opened up twitter and decided to tweet my departure today.
