Chapter 4: The Argument
He closes the door, then looks at me.
"I don't know what to do"
"What do you mean?"
"How can I carry on knowing-his voice begins to get louder-knowing that you're having second thoughts!"
"No I'm not! You know I love you! Otherwise why would I have gone through with it?!" I'm shouting now.
"I... I didn't think of that... But it still doesn't change the fact that you're not 100% comfortable with this"
"No you're right, I'm 1000% percent happy and comfortable with this; I love you and I know you love me too, don't you?"
"Yes! But I'm just angry, ok? I think it's best if we take a night apart"
He then leaves the room without another word the door slams behind him. I sit down taking it all in. How can he be annoyed at this? Then I suddenly realise the obvious; if he's this annoyed at this, what will he be like if he finds out the real reason I hesitated. Not only that but we're not spending our own wedding night together. I'm crying now. So I reach for the only thing that seems like it will help. Vodka. I take the biggest swig possible, until a burning sensation goes down my throat. I'm suddenly coughing like mad! When I hear a laughing noise at the door. I turn around in the hope that it's Harry ready to forget about it but instead it's Liam. I don't know whether it's the sight of his face or the vodka but I'm suddenly puking my guts up. Liam comes rushing forward and holds my hair back. He begins to rub my back. Once I've stopped being sick I sit up. Liam hands me a glass of water and a mint. I take several sips and suck on the mint.
"No problem. I know it's none of my business and I understand after what's happened I'm probably the last person you want to be asking this but Harry told me what happened, and is there someone else?"
"No! Of course not!"
"Then why were you looking at me during your vows?" he asks with a laugh so I can only guess it was a joke. So I nudge him and laugh.
"You're so full of yourself!"
"Well there's a lot to be full of! I mean look at me, I'm amazing!"
"Of course you are!" We both laugh. I don't know whether it's the vodka thinking but all of a sudden Liam's lips look irresistible. So I lean in and to my surprise so does he. He's lifting me up whilst unzipping my dress but we still don't come up for air.
