2. Chapter 2
In the corner of my eye I could see someone open the door, coming into the bar. Yes, I'm in a bar right now. I'm always at the bar. It helps me get my mind off of things. I don't know why I come here all the time because almost every time I come here, girls try to get in bed with me. Basically every girl in this room I have slept with. I have a reason though. Its only to keep my mind off......Something. I have a secret. A secret that nobody knows about. And I don't even think I'm ready to tell anyone anytime soon. Somebody sat across from me, on the other side of the bar. It was a male. He looked like he had tears coming down his face but I couldn't really tell because of the distance between us. The bartender walked up to him, handing him a drink, Without even taking his order. The man looked up and gave the bar tender a thankful look. The bartender walked away, leaving the smallish man by himself. The man took a sip of his drink then squinted his eyes, shaking his head. I'm guessing the bartender made it strong. The man scooted the drink away from him and rested his head in his arms.
I could feel someones eyes staring at me but I didn't bother looking up. The bartender walked over to me handing me a drink. I looked up at him and gave him a thankful look. He nodded his head then walked away. I looked at the drink, eyeing it for a while then deciding on taking a drink. I brought my lips up to the rim of the cup and letting the liquid come into my mouth. As soon as it made contact with my taste buds, my eyes squinted and I shook my head. God that's strong. Once the taste faded I sighed and laid my head in my hands. What am I going to do with my life? I mean I never planned on this happening. I always thought I was going to have a long lasting relationship but I guess that's not going to happen. I'm not going to meet anyone like Jenny. That was my wife's name. My daughters name was Addeline. There's never going to be anyone like Jenny. I miss her so much.
I hear a chair pull out beside me. Probably a skank trying to get it bed with me. "Hey erm. Are you ok mate" Said a deep voice. I life my head up and look over to see a man who doesn't look far off from my age at all. He had brown, curly hair and Hazel eyes. Eyes that you could get lost in. I shook my head, shaking out the gay thought and took a deep breath. "Whats up" He said patting my back. "You really want to know whats wrong" I ask, having an edge to my voice. He nodded his head. Wow. Hes the first person who really wants to know whats up. I took a deep breath and began to speak. "Six months ago my wife and daughter got in a car wreck. None of them made it. I lost everything I had" I said and a couple tears rolled down my cheeks. I probably looked like a child crying. Not hearing a reply made me think he left. I began sobbing and rested my head on my hands. Feeling someone rubbing my back surprised me but I didn't move. Finally someone wanted to listen to me.
Poor guy. He must live a really hard life considering he lost his wife and daughter. "Do you want to talk about it" I asked. It took him sometime to answer but he nodded his head and picked up my car keys off the table. "Alright lets go" I said. He looked up at me confused. "Well we cant just talk here" I said. He still looked at me confused but got up anyways. I started walking towards the door with The man following behind me. Wow that's kind of weird. I don't even know this guy and yet I'm helping him. I don't know but there is something about him. Hes different I guess. We stepped outside and we both walked over to my car. I unlocked it getting into the car with the man following. "The names Harry" I said and smiled at him. "Louis" He said, as his voice scratched at the end. I looked at him with sympathy and rubbed his shoulder. He looked down at his hands, messing around with them. I sighed and put the keys in the car, then slowly backed out of the parking lot.
We sat in my car, silence taking over us. The only sound coming from Louis sniffles and the car driving over gravel. I leaned over, turning the radio on and the song 'This' by Ed Sheeran began playing. When the song got to the chorus, I could hear a slight hum come from Louis. Even though it was a faint sound, You could tell that he had a beautiful singing voice. "Do you like Ed?" I asked. Louis looked at me and widened his eyes nodding his head "Love em". I nodded my head and smiled slightly. "Ya hes a really good singer" I said. He nodded his head and kept staring at me. "What?" I asked. He shook his head and looked out the window. "Nothing".
I couldn't help but stare at Harry. I just met him and............... there's something about him. Its as if I've known him for a long time. We already had stuff in common. I hope me and him are going to be really good friends. Hes really supportive and I guess I need more people in my life.
