"Pain change people Harry" Zo said and looked me in the eyes. A few seconds after she broke down and started crying hysterically.
Everyone looked at her, I lifted her up and sat her on my lap. "Everything has hurt so much Harry, first you went away and I heard nothing from you, then Lucas and his gang started to tease me at school, everyone spoke of you with me when they knew it crushed me ...." She cried.
"Shhh ... Shhhh ... everything will be alright love, shhh" I whispered to her to calm her down. ".....and then Mom went away with work all the time and I was so much alone at home ... I didn’t know what to do anymore, I was depressed and ... Har-Harry I ..." she sobbed into my t-shirt.
"You can say everything I'm here with you now Zo "I said, and didn’t care about the boys who sat and watched, it was Zoe I had to focus on now.
"Ha-Harry I started cutting myself, I hated myself so much that I didn’t want live anymore, b-but then I met Nikki and Ashley two girls at school who I've become friends with and I stopped cutting because I realized that someone actually loved me. But I regret cutting so much because now I have so many scars on my arms that will never go away "she cried a little calmer now.
I was the reason why she was like this, it was my fault that she became depressed and started to self harm. Hadn’t I gone to the audition would this not have happened.
"Zo, shhh ... please don’t cry, you don’t need to worry about the scars it just means that you have managed to fight against something you didn’t think you could. Sorry I haven’t been here for you Zo, I'm so sorry "I said to her and hugged her. "Harry, this is not your fault do not blame yourself," she said and wiped away her tears with her sweater. I took her wrist and kissed every scar she had there. When I was finished she sat smiling at me. "I'm so lucky to have you as my best friend" she said. "And I'm lucky to have youas my best friend" I replied.
Zoe jumped down from my lap and walked out of the living room. A few minutes later she came back with two big bowls of popcorn. "Sorry that you had to see me like that" she said a little shyly to the boys, she never liked to cry in front of new people. "It's fine love, we realize it's good to get it out, and we got to know more about you when you cried anyway” said Zayn back with a smile. Zoe smiled a little smile back, "maybe we can watch a movie" Zo suggested and put the popcorn down at the table. Everyone agreed and we decided to watch 'Titanic'. Zoe sat down next to me, I took my arm around her and she laid her head down on my shoulder, an hour later she was fast asleep.
"Looks like Zoe is tired" Niall said with his mouth full of popcorn, "Yeah, I'm going to put her in bed I'll come down again" I said to them and carried Zo bridly style . I went up the stairs and into her room and laid her down on the bed, I took the covers over her and kissed her head. "Good night Zo, Love you" I whispered and closed the door.
When I came down again, the movie was finished and the boys sat there and talked. I sat down and talked with them. "Zoe seems incredibly nice, I'm glad you two met again" Liam said, patting me on the back. "Yes, I am happy too, she’s afterall my bestfriend" I replied.
"I think I know a boy who might like her a little, he starts with H and ends at arry" Louis said and I glared at him. "Louis stop" I groaned, blushing slightly. "Oh look, he’s blushing" Zayn said, pointing to my cheeks. "Guys stop it" I said again. "Not until you say you have a crush on her" replied Louis. "Okay, okay, I like her, but she'd never liked me," I said, and yawned. "You never know Harry" Liam said as I stood up. "No, I’ll never know" I said.
"I'm going to bed so good night guys love you." I said, and went up, hearing the others say ’good night’ and ’I love yous’. When I entered Zoe’s room I saw her lying on the bed exactly the same way as when I left her, on her stomach with one arm tucked under the pillow while the other arm laid over the pillow. I took off my sweater and sweatpants and laid myself next to her. I took my arm around her waist. "Good night again Zo" I closed my eyes and began to think about all the good memories we have together, after a short while darkness took over me and I was asleep.
