I felt the phone drop from my hand and heard a cracking sound. Zayn rushed to get me some water while Niall practically pushed me to the couch. Louis picked up my now broken phone and started talking to satan on the phone. Harry sat beside me grab my hand. The warmth felt nice so I kept my hand in his.
When my vision cleared and half a glass of water was drunk I reached for the phone." Hello?"
"Claire is that you?"he sounded pretty desperate.
"What do you want?"sorry no pity for the guy that left me.
"I want to talk to you and see how you're doing. Is there somewhere we can meet?"he asked.
"I'm in London dumbass."I replied.
"Is there anyway I can see you, I'm in London on a business trip, I talked to your mom and-"
"You talk to mom? What the hell?"I screeched.
"I saw where she got remarried called a few people and got her number. Can I please meet you somewhere?"he asked.
I nervously chewed on my lip and made my decision." At Nando's 7 PM sharp don't be late this is your last chance screw this up and you're done." I said and hung up. I looked around at the guys and saw five worried faces. "Anyone want Nando's later?" Niall, Louis, and Liam all jumped for joy; Zayn smiled and left to go hang out with one of his band members but Harry looked upset. He didn't say anything but got up and went upstairs. I shrugged it off and went upstairs to get ready.
After my shower I put on skinny jeans with rips in them, a black see-through shirt with a purple tank top underneath and purple high top converse, I left my face make up clean and grabbed my phone and wallet and saw it was 6:30. I hopped my way downstairs and saw no one was in the living room, I skipped into an empty kitchen and looked out the back door to see a Harry swinging in a seat swing thing and decided to talk to him.
When I sat in the swing beside him I saw he was upset." Are you okay?"I asked.
"Fine."was all he said. I knew something was wrong but I wasn't going to push it, I've gotten so sick of people asking me that when I was obviously didn't want to talk about it. Me being the weirdo I was I started poking his cheek where his dimples are supposed to be until he cracked a smile and chuckled.
"C'mon Mr.Dimples let's go to Nando's' I'm never been before and I'm ready to get out of this house." I stood up and got in front of him grabbed his hands and pulled him up. Louis in Nialler poked their heads out of the back door and yelled that it was time to leave. I skipped to the car and yelled "Shotgun!" and quickly hopped in the passenger seat.
Harry slid in the driver seat and I started to fiddle with the radio until I heard a song by Chevelle start playing. It was about a 30 minute drive and by the time we got there I managed to tick Niall, Zayn, and Louis off about some video game that I didn't like but they loved.
I walked into the restaurant and told hostess name that my father gave me. She led me to the table and the guys being famous got a separate table that was close enough in case I need them. Harry kept a close on me during the dinner. It was about 10 minutes before said man showed up and I was beyond ready to get up and walk away seven is seven not 7:20.
"Hello." he said with a careful voice.
"Start talking." was my oh so genius reply.
"I'm sorry about leaving you."
"That was on my birthday bloody prick!"I exclaimed, Hey I said bloody look at me getting into the London spirit.
"I know it was a bad time to tell you."he said.
"There wasn't even a birthday present just hey I'm leaving. No contact, letters, nothing over the years. You run off get married, what or who the fuck does that?" I say. I stop talking because our waiter had brought us our food over. I start to take bites of it and he starts talking.
"I know what I did was wrong, and I regret it every day. The woman I was having an affair with got pregnant."
"So you choose them over us? Oh yeah not real great! I wasn't always will be second-best or nothing to you! You know what you can go fuck yourself! You and your "family" I'm done, good fuck face!" I yelled and got up to go towards the exit. I heard footsteps behind me but didn't care. I went outside and turned left, I kept walking till I came to a park bench and sat down. The person that was following me was Harry and he sat down beside me.
"You ok? That was some hell of words you said there, even some mothers covering their children's ears." He laughed at the end of it, but soon stopped when he saw the look on my face. He slid beside me and put his arm around me and I let him. I leaned my head on his shoulder and sighed.
"I shouldn't have come I feel so stupid." I started crying. Harry lifted me up and put me in his lap facing him. He brushed the hair out of my face and the tears off as well.
"I'm sorry, hey we are at a park why don't we go for a stroll?"he asked.
"It's eight at night." I pointed out.
"True why don't we walk home? I'll text Louis and tell him." I nodded my head and stood up fixing my clothes, while he sent a message to Louis. "Ready?" he asked as he stood up and started walking towards the house. The walk was silent and it was about 15 minutes before Harry stopped took my hand and started dragging me to the other side of the road almost getting me hit by a car in the process to a Starbucks. "You said you wanted to get out of the house." He shrugged and pushed through the door.
He walked up to the counter where there was a girl cashier. Her name tag said Breanna and she had glasses with long blondish brown hair, she is pretty and really skinny like athletic skinny not throw up to be skinny skinny. Harry ordered what he wanted and I got a strawberry shake with blueberry muffin, I don't really like coffee the cashier said she would bring order to sit down anymore, so we chose a window seat towards the back.
"So how do you like it here so far?"Harry asked.
"Pretty good only my fourth day, a really long day..." I trailed off there because the cashier started walking up to us when she accidentally tripped on a chair leg. Sending Harry's hot coffee on him.
"I'm so sorry!" Breanna said about pulling napkins out of her apron and handing them to Harry.
"It's okay love."he said heading to the bathroom.
"Im terribly sorry." She apologized to me, setting down my smoothie and muffin.
"That was amazing!"I said between fits of laughter.
