I sat having a lovely chat with Edna when the front door opened. Kate and Michael walked in laughing. They laughing stopped and their smiles faded when they saw me sitting there. I stood up and smiled at them.
“Brigh,” They both said at the same time in a monotone voice.
“Edna could you leave us to talk for a moment, thank you.” I asked Edna. She nodded and walked into the kitchen.
“Brigh there’s nothing here to talk about, you’re a bitch and that’s all there is to it.” Kate said angrily.
“You know what, fuck it. If you wanna continue to be angry at me then go ahead. I did what I did and I’m sorry, but I’m back now, and you’re still alive. I might die soon but go ahead continue to be fucking angry. I don’t give a shit anymore.”
She looked taken back and so did Michael.
“Brigh….I’m sorry. I was just so worried and scared because I had no idea where you were. You never called and you just left and I didn’t know what else to do, so I decided to go with anger. And oh my god I felt horrible after I slapped you.” Kate said in a rush.
Before I could speak Michael started talking. “I’m so sorry I was such a dick to you, but seeing Kate that upset and angry at you just made me angry at you. I never meant to say all those things to you. I’m sorry.”
I sighed and looked down and my feet.
“I guess it’s okay. It was a bitchy thing of me to leave without you guys. Group hug?” I said smiling up and them.
They smile and ran over to me and hugged me.
“I have so much to tell you.” I said to Kate.
“Why don’t I get to know?”
“They’re girl things.”
“I’m out.” He said walking out the door.
Kate laughed and turned back to me.
“So it looks like things are going good with you and Michael.”
“Yeah, I practically live with him now. How are things with you and Harry?”
“Amazing, he took me to Tennessee to a beautiful cabin in the woods, and it was just the two of us. It was like we could just forget all of this mess and just be together.”
“So did you guys, ya know, get it on.”
“Jesus Kate, you sound like a guy….and if you must know…yes…twice.” I said laughing.
“Only twice, what are you two and old married couple.”
I slapped her on the shoulder and laughed.
“Well, have you and Michael done it.”
“See you can’t make fun of me.”
“Well we haven’t been alone in a cabin for two months. We’re constantly surrounded by people.”
“The time will come.”
She just sighed, “Hopefully.”
“Well I better get home, Harry’s probably home by now.”
“Come back soon.”
“Oh, before I forget, where’d my cat go.”
Butter came scurrying down the stairs. I picked her up and called a taxi back home.
When I got home I sat butter down. Harry came walking out of the bedroom, and smiled when he saw me.
“Hey so how did it go at John and Edna’s?”
“I made up with Kate and Michael, and I got Butter back.”
“I’m glad you made up with them.”
“Yeah, well I’m going to go take a shower.”
I walked into the bathroom and took a shower, since I haven’t taken one before the plane ride over here. I got out of the shower and wrapped a towel around me. I walked out into my room and heard Harry talking to someone.
I walked out into the hallway to hear his conversation.
“Listen, I swear if you come anywhere near her I will kill you.”
I automatically knew it was Zayn. He hasn’t called Harry in a while, that I know of. Oh god what if he tells Harry that I went to see him? He would be furious. He would go on about having to protect me.
I walked back into my room and got dressed then walked back out. Harry was sitting on the couch flipping through the channels. I sat next to him and laid my head on his shoulder. He rested his head on top of mine.
“It was Zayn wasn’t it?” I asked quietly.
“Now that I know who’s been after me all these months I think I need and explanation on how you know him.”
He sighed, tired of having to hide everything.
“When I finished school, I got involved in some bad things. Zayn’s a bit older than me so he kind of took me in. He became somewhat of a brother to me. I always knew there was something off about him, but I stuck around because I knew if I left I’d get mixed up with the wrong people again and I’d have nowhere to go. One night he brought home a date and afterwards he was fuming, I don’t know what was wrong with him. I know now, that she never left. The whole time I was afraid of getting away from him and getting mixed up with the wrong people, when I already had.”
“Harry, what happened?” I asked though I already knew the answer.
“He made me…made me…hurt so many people. I thought I knew who he was, but he’s insane Brigh. He found enjoyment in killing those innocent women. He threatened to kill me if I didn’t do what he said.” Harry’s voice cracked and I looked up to see tears in his eyes.
“Harry, you’re not a bad person I hope you know that. Like you said he would’ve killed you if you didn’t do those things.”
“Brigh…I almost killed you.”
I scooted away a bit and looked at him.
“If you hadn’t had fought back I could’ve killed you. He told me not to stop until you were dead. I couldn’t kill you though. I got to know you. I fell in love with you. Brigh I’m so sorry.”
“I forgive you.” I said without even thinking.
“Why. Why would you forgive me for something so horrible?”
“Because I fell in love with you too,”
“I’ve done horrible things, things you couldn’t even imagine.”
“I know, and I may be crazy, but I’m in love with you.”
“You are crazy.”
“Do you know why he wants me dead?”
“He never told me, and I was so confused why he wanted you dead so much.”
“I know Zayn, from school. Back in high school I was a horrible person. I would make fun of people and just bring them down for enjoyment. Zayn was completely different, he was a nerd and I used to make fun of him every day. I don’t blame him for wanting to kill me I ruined his life in high school and it’s obviously stuck with him since then.”
“It’s not your fault. He was already and unstable person, no matter what you did you couldn’t have controlled that.”
“I’m tired, let’s go to bed.” I said while yawning.
Harry and I walked into my bedroom and got into bed. Just as I was about to drift off to sleep my phone lit up, telling me that I had a text. I reached over and picked it up. The light blinding me for a moment. It said I had a text from Zayn. My heart dropped when I saw the message.
‘Kate and Michael look very snug in bed, it would be a shame if someone were to wake them from their slumber.’
Anger coursed through me.
‘You stay the hell away from them or I swear to god I’ll make sure you end up in prison for the rest of your life.’
‘Oh now Brigh let’s not go around making those kinds of threats. We both know who truly has all the power here. I can take everything away from you easily. Soon Brigh, you won’t even be on this earth anymore.’
My hands started shaking as I realized how right he was. He’s killed so many people and gotten away with it. I can’t do anything to stop him, he’s too for me.
I looked over to see Harry, who was fast asleep. He looked so peaceful, steady breathing, mouth slightly opened, some of his hair fell into his face. I’ve decided to not fight it anymore, Zayn is going to kill me soon, no matter how much I try to hide. He’s going to take me away from Harry and everyone else I love. I watched Harry, treasuring the moments I have left with him. I thought of not being with Harry anymore scared the shit out of me. The thought of dying scared the shit out.
I scooted closer to Harry, laying my head on his chest. He let out a sigh and wrapped his arm around me in his sleep.
