The next morning I woke up and instantly freaked out. Someone's arms were wrapped around me. I looked up and saw Harry. Memories began playing through my head and I blushed. Harry was still asleep and he was slightly snoring and I giggled. I tried to get out of his arms but he just tightened them.I looked up and saw Harry was awake. "Oh i'm sorry I woke you up". Harry brought his hands up to his face and I scooted over. "No it's fine". I nodded my head and looked around. Harry chuckled. "What?" I asked looking over at him. "We feel asleep". I nodded my head and smiled. "Well Louis and Eleanor are still asleep so what do you want to do?" I asked. "We can go and get Starbucks together and bring them back something" Said Harry. I nodded my head. Is this a date? No it couldn't be. I know nothing about Harry. Well now's my chance to get to know him. I went into the bathroom and fixed my hair up a bit them walked back out into the living room and over to my purse. I looked over to see Harry still laying on the couch. I smiled to myself and reached around my purse for gum. I pulled out two pieces and walked over to Harry. His eyes were closed still. I put the stick of gum in between his lips and his eyes opened up. Harry looked at me then at the gum and taking it in his mouth. "Thank you". "Yup". Harry got up and ruffled his curly hair and we both walked over to the door. We both put our shoes on and walked out. When we walked outside we saw that the sun was barely up. I looked over at Harry and he looked over at me shocked. "Jesus you wake up early". I chuckled "Not really, I normally wake up at twelve. You're snores just woke me up" I said. Harry grinned and nudged me. I nodded my head and rolled my eyes. We both got into Harry's car, deciding that only taking one car was better, and we made our way over to Starbucks.
When we got to Starbucks, I parked the car and we both got out. We both walked over to the door and Harry opened the door for me. "Thank you" I said blushing. Harry and I both walked into the building and got in line to order. "What are you getting?" Asked Harry. "I think i'm going to get the iced vanilla coffee". Harry nodded his head "Do you want to go pick us out a table?". I nodded my head and began looking around until I found a table for two in front of a big window. I sat down and pulled my phone out. I had two missed phone calls. One from my mom and one from my dad. I also had a text message.
Mom - Hunny i'm really sorry if I interrupted something but me and your father really have to tell you something that you'll want to know:(
After I read over the text message I typed in my mothers phone number calling her back.
Me "Hey, so you needed to tell me something?"
Mom "yeah um..........your father.........he....he" then she broke out into fits of sobs
Me "Mom please, please talk to me"
Mom "Your father..........He has cancer"
My eyes widened and my mouth fell open.
I hung up the phone. Me and my parents are really close . especially me and my dad. I set my phone down onto the table and covered my face with my hands. What am I going to do. "Hey I got the-" "Carter are you ok?". I looked up and saw Harry standing there. He had mine and his drink in both of his hands. He quickly set the drinks down and brought his chair over by me. until then I have just noticed that tears were falling down my face. Harry cupped my face with his hands and began to wipe my tears away with his thumb. I looked down at the ground, trying to find anything else but look at Harry. I hated when people see me cry. It shows people that you are weak. "Carter please talk to me" Said Harry. I sighed and looked at him. He frowned at me and wrapped his arms around me, giving me a hug. I broke out into sobs. People began staring at us but I didn't care. When Harry and I pulled away he began wiping my tears again. "m-my fath-er. H-he has can-cer" I sobbed out. Harry's mouth fell open and he frowned. He pulled me into another hug but this time her hugged me even tighter. I opened my eyes and looked around to see people frowning at me. I gave each of them a small smile. I took a deep breath and let go of Harry. "Do you want to go back to Eleanor's?" Harry asked. I looked up at him and frowned "But I thought you wanted to hang out a little". Harry nodded his head "not if you need Louis. He's probably way better at handling this then I am". I nodded my head. "Ok well I'm quickly going to get them drinks also and we can head back" said Harry. I nodded my head "Please let me pay. you payed for us already". "I'm not going to let you pay. Here go ahead and get in the car" Said Harry handing me his keys. I nodded my head and sighed. I walked outside and got into his car. I put the keys in and started the car for Harry. Moments later Harry came out with two other drinks. Harry is seriously the sweetest person ever. He always puts other peoples needs before his. He opened his car door and set our drinks in the cup holders and Louis and Eleanor's on his lap. He looks over at me and frowns at me once again. "I'm so sorry" He says hugging me once again. We sat there for 10 minutes just hugging and don't go thinking that it was awkward because it wasn't. He's helping me with a situation that really hurts me. Harry was whispering kind things into my ear as I kept nodding me head. He kept telling me that he was going to make it but I didn't know about that.
When we pulled away, Harry started up the car and began driving. I leaned my head on his car window while it started to rain. Great. Today was going to be a rainy day. Why at times like this, It always has to rain. It's so weird. It's almost as if the weather can tell your emotions. weird thought.
We pulled up to Louis house and we both got out of the car. When we walked inside we saw Louis and Eleanor cuddling on the couch watching TV. "Hey guys" Louis said happily. They looked over at us and noticed that I was slightly crying. Louis eyes widened and he quickly got up from under Eleanor and ran over to me. "What happened?" He asked Harry. Harry frowned and looked at me. "It's not my say". Louis nodded his head and pulled me over to the stairs. We both sat down and he wrapped his arms around me. Eleanor and Harry both walked over to us. "What's wrong?" Asked Louis. I looked up at him and sighed "M-my fath-er h-has can-cer" I said. Louis eyes became wide. He was also very close with my father. Tears slowly came down Louis face. "I-I ne-ed to g-go ov-er the-re" I said. They all looked at me with sad faces. "I-I ne-ed to go f-for a cou-ple we-eks"
