" Trish, can I pleaseeee leave Avery with you today?" I begged my roommate.
" course love, she will probably sleep all day any way." Trish looked up smiling at me. " go, have fun at work!!" She smirked ushering me out.
" thanks! I owe you one!" I yelled climbing into my pink car. The pink baby seat sat lone in the rear of the car.
Climbing out of the car, I straightened my black pencil skirt and fixed my tight, black sweetheart top.
I pulled my hair up into a high ponytail. My wrist tattoo was hidden by the braclet Harry gave me a year ago.
I dyed my hair so now it was blending from brown to blonde basically ombre.
" morning jane!" I smiled pulling my apron on.
" Starbucks is now OPEN!" Jane yelled swapping the sign around. I stood by the cash register and waited.
" hi, love, can I please have a large coffee to go?" I recognised that voice anywhere.
Without looking up I nodded. " that will be $5.30 thank you." The guy handed me the money and I had to look up.
" meegan?" Harry asked flicking my loose strands out of my eyes.
" hi Harry?" I weakly smiled. His brown curly hair was flicked to the side and hidden under a beanie.
" what-........ What are you doing here?" Harry stuttered out.
" I um work here!" I sighed, tightening my ponytail.
" you look amazing...." He sighed smiling. The corners of my mouth twitched up.
" Meegan, the coffee is here!" Jane called from the back. I handed Harry his coffee and he grabbed my wrist. He looked down at the tattoo staining my wrist.
" who's Avery?" He asked, a frown creasing between his brows.
" ummm.... She's my ummm..." I frowned scratching my hand. " my goddaughter?" I questioned.
" meegan! Seriously who is she?" He asked more determined this time.
Before I could answer, my phone rang.
" hello Trish? Is everything okay?" I become worried about Avery.
" meegan, she's acting funny and won't stop crying!" Trish spoke concerned.
" okay, tell her mummy's coming. I'll be there soon." I sighed forgetting Harry was there.
Quickly gathering my purse and coffee I yelled to Jane.
" Jane I'm so sorry. It's Avery! I'll be as quick as I can!" I yelled running out the door.
" take care love!" I heard Jane yell.
Arriving home, I ran inside. Trish had a screaming Avery in her arms. Trish handed her over and she stopped crying a bit.
" what's wrong avery?" I asked rocking her.
She coughed and spluttered " my head hurts mummy!"
" it's okay. Let's get some medicine to help your headache" I cooed sitting her on the counter in the kitchen. I handed her the syringe and a jelly bean for after wards.
" is she okay Meegan?" Trish asked carrying a blanket with her.
" yeah I think she's got a bad cold" I sighed washing the syringe and Avery's hands.
" come on Avery!" I smiled lifting my daughter off of the counter.
Trish wrapped Avery in the pink blanket and put the kettle on.
I hurried along the wooden floors, my feet echoing on the hard surface.
Reaching the door, my hand touched the doorbell and I pulled back. I didn't even know why.
Opening the door, I saw Harry!
" Harry?" I gasped almost slamming the door in his face.
" meegan, we need to talk, I miss you." Harry frowned cupping my cheek. I leaned into it for a minute before I was snapped back into reality.
" mummy!!!" I heard Avery giggle running down the corridor.
I turned to my small daughter and picked her up.
" mummy?" Harry questioned looking me up and down. The cogs began to work in Harry's head.
" meegan, you never got an abortion did you?" He asked flicking his hair to the side.
" ummm, no Harry." I mumbled brushing Avery's hair out of her face. Harry reached for Avery.
" you cheated in me Harry! You can't just expect to be able to walk back into our lives and act like nothing happened." I whispered, tears threatening to fall.
" I know meegan. But can you please just hear me out?" He begged.
I nodded and let him in. Carrying Avery upstairs, I tripped on the fifth step. I felt Harry grab my waist, his hand findin the bear patch of skin on my waist.
" you okay meegan?" He asked concerned.
" yeah. I'm okay." I quickly tucked Avery into her bed in my room and shut the door.
Harry trailed after me downstairs and I wondered into the marble topped kitchen. Trish was sitting on a stool the island bench.
" cup if tea Harry?" She offered smirkin at me.
" yes thanks love." He smiled pulling a seat out for himself.
" uh, Trish you have work in 10 minutes?" I chuckled looking at her rushing out the door.
" love you meags!" She called swinging the door shut behind her.
" sugar harry?" I asked pulling my pink mug down from the cupboard.
" yes please love!" Harry smiled getting the milk out of the fridge.
Sitting down on a seat across from Harry, I cupped my hands around my mug. I began to fiddle in my seat.
" what do you want to talk about harry?" I whispered nervously.
" I want to be a part of Avery's life, and I know you don't want me to but hear me out." He asked sipping his tea. I nodded my head and he took a deep breathe.
" okay, so we have our new tour coming up in two days and I was thinking that you and Avery could come along. I have changed so much meegan, for the better. I haven't dated anyone since I met you and the girl that kissed me, I promise you I haven't seen since. " Harry rambled on.
I held my hands up. " Harry I get it. And I think we will come with you okay?" I smiled.
" oh my... Meegan that's amazing. Thank you. Would you like me go help you pack?" Harry asked smiling cheekily.
" that would be lovely. Thanks hazzy!" I giggled kissing his cheek.
