I stared at her. I didn't know what to say. Yes, I didn't have any secrets from him, but at the same time... do I?
"No, I wouldn't keep any secrets from him." "Mhmm." I looked at her and said, "What?" "You took a long time to answer." Shit.
"I don't have any secrets. You can even ask Josie." She gave me a look and I just shrugged my shoulders. I don't have any secrets from him. I swear. "Look, I just don't want my brother to come out broken hearted ok?"
"I wouldn't do that to him." "That's what Darcy said too." I gave her glare and said, "I'm not Darcy."
She looked at her arm and said, "I think the peas has been on there long enough." "Yeah, me too." I took the peas and got out of her room. Me and her didn't start off well and she's probably now going to try to break Harry away from me because of that. Great.
I went down the hall and I was looking at the floor. I ran into some one and I looked up and it was Harry. "Oh, sorry. I didn't--" "It's fine. You didn't open the bag." I looked down and said, "We changed our minds. Too much work."
He raised his eyebrow and said, "Too much work. Come on I'm not going to fall for that. What happened?" "I don't want to talk about it and I told you. It was too much work." His face turned into a worried face. "What?"
"This always happens. After a few days of letting someone into my house a few days they start acting all weird. They seem to just be more sensitive around me and start I don't know. They just start acting like someone is watching there every move."
I let out a sigh of relief. "Harry nothing is wrong ok? I'm fine. Stop worrying about these little things." I kissed him and went off to the kitchen.
When I got there I started to hear yelling up stairs. I closed the door and ran up there.
I opened the door and saw Gemma crying and Harry yelling in her face. "Why are you still with him? I told you to stay away from him." She looked at me and gave me a death glare and said, "I thought we were keeping this between us?"
Harry turned quickly and said, "What?" He had a worried face on and said, "You were keeping a secret from me?" I looked at her and she had an evil grin on. I was speechless. I didn't know what to do.
"Harry. I--" "No. Get out of here." "Harry." "I said get out." He started to cry and that made me start. I covered my hand over my mouth and ran out the door. Gemma planned all this out. It's all her fault. She made me look like the evil one when she was the one that was.
I stopped in the middle of the hallway and turned around. I didn't hear anymore yelling. I just heard some cracked voices. I went to the doorway but in a place where they couldn't see me.
"Harry, I told you she was bad." "I know. I should've realized it sooner." "Look the girl that you should be with is not her. She's out there somewhere in the world waiting for you ok?" "Got it."
That little bitch!
I woke up and I realized I was in my own house. I just remembered the fight that me and Harry had yesterday. I started to cry in my bed and my heart was filled with guilt. I couldn't help it. I was heartbroken for something that someone set me up and that I didn't mean to do.
What if she planned this all out and it was fake? What if the bruise was fake? What if her boyfriend was fake? What if...
I heard a knocking on the door, "Come in." I looked and it was Josie.
I fell back onto my pillow and said, "Hey." She turned and closed the door behind her and said, "Did you check Facebook?" "No. Don't feel like it." "Well, your missing a lot of things that Gemma is talking about, and why didn't you tell me that you and Harry broke up."
"She said what?" "You and Harry broke up. Come on. Were you drunk or something?"
I stared then ran to my computer. I opened the screen and there was a whole lot of posts and comments. One of them caught my eye first.
It was a picture of me and Harry on the couch that day when I was taking a nap and Harry and Gemma were talking about me. I read the caption and it said, "Me and Harry tested her by talking about her in a good way while she was 'asleep' and it didn't turn out right, let's just say. They are officially over."
I looked at the picture again and it brought a tear to my eye. She hated me from the start. What was her problem?
I turned and looked at Josie. She bit her lip and said, "I'm really sorry." I shook my head and said, "No, I'm sorry that I didn't trust you and Jake. I should've just not fall into that trap. Like he said to us 'Once a nerd always a nerd' 'Once a bad boy always a bad boy'."
I cried and a tear ran down my eye. Did that mean that he pretended that I was his first love too?
I tried not to think of that. I didn't want to think about it. "You have us ok?" "Yeah. I need to go see Eric." "Right! He's coming out of rehab today!" "Yeah."
I got my car keys and headed out the door.
When we got there he was still in bed but all his stuff were packed up. "Sorry that I'm late." "It's fine. They gave me my phone back and I checked Facebook for the latest updates, and I saw what Gemma posted."
I looked down and bit my lip. I could tell that Josie was giving him an evil stare.
Jake came in and said, "Dude! You're finally getting out!" "Yeah I know! It's been a long while since I stepped out of this damn building."
Jake turned and saw me. I stared at his eyes for a while and then looked down. I turned away and sat on a chair. Try to make this day happy Spencer. Don' bring everyone down with you pain.
"So, Jake how ya holding up?" "That question should be toward you not me." I opened my mouth, but no words came out. I closed it and looked at my feet.
Louis came rushing through the door with Niall behind him with Darcy and said, "Congratulations! You're getting out of this hell hole!" "Yeah. Thanks man."
They seemed to have grown pretty close together since I wasn't there. I was happy for them. Darcy looked at me and saw my expression. She went up to me and said, "Gemma problems?" I nodded. I couldn't lie to that girl. She read too many magazines that told her all about body language. She's stupid, but not that stupid.
"Same here. That's why I broke up with him. The whole seeing signs was a cover up. You see--" "He forced you to move in with him so Gemma could test to see if you're worth it for him, but then see that she was planning to break you two up? Been there. Done that."
She closed her mouth and patted me on the back. "Everything's going to be fine. I seriously understand the pain that you're going through right now."
I smiled and looked back at everyone else and said, "Let's not focus on me and let's focus on Eric. I mean come one he's getting out of here!"
Everyone gave a fake smile, but I could see the worry that they had in their eyes about me. Louis looked at me and had worry in his face. He didn't smile at all.
Once we got out of there Eric asked to spend some time with me alone since Harry dumped me. I drove him to the Starbucks since he couldn't drive yet. He had to wait another month to get that privilege back.
We went in and people from my school were there. I tried not to look at them and let them see that Eric is here to comfort me and let them see that me and him were on a date.
He said, "I'll pay. You can go sit down." I didn't argue with him I just kept my head down and went to an empty table far away from the other people.
They were all staring and whisper to each other. They were probably talking about me.
He came with the orders and said, "Now, is what you said to Darcy true about Gemma?" I nodded. He kept his hands away from mine and tried to make this not look like a date as hard as he could. I thanked him for that.
"Look. I can do something about it ok? I mean I've been through a broken heart." I looked up at him and he regretted saying that right away. "I'm sorry ok? You really need to to talk this out with someone."
"He said he loved me." I looked down at my cup of mocha and he didn't seem to be so happy that I'm being quiet. "Once a bad boy always a bad boy." I said the last part with him and he wasn't surprised at all that I knew that.
"Just do what you usually do when you get depressed or stressed about something ok?" "Yeah." "Don't get too stressed about this ok? Promise?" "Promise."
I bit my lip and didn't want to look at him. "I think I need to go now." "Yeah. Get your mind off of this, but first, can you drop me off?" "Yeah." That made me smile. He smiled back and felt a little proud of himself for making me smile.
"That's the smile that I want to see." That made me smile even more.
After I dropped him off I went to my music room and it reminded me of the music room that Harry had except mine had a mini grand piano. His was a full size beautiful one. Mine was Ivory too, but his looked beautiful.
I started to play some chords then some lyrics popped into my head.
I should've saw it coming
I should've saw the signs
But I wanted to believe you, trust you
You said you wouldn't lie
But, baby, you were so good, so good
You had me going blind
You said it was your best friend, I'm guessing
I wasn't your type, hey
What goes around comes around
And if it goes up, it comes down
I know you're mad 'cause I found out
Want you to feel what I feel right now
Now that it's over
I just wanna break your heart right back, right back
Want you to cry me a river
I just wanna break your heart right back, yeah
All this time I was blind
Running around telling everybody
My baby loves me
My baby loves me
My baby, my baby, my baby loves me
I stopped and I started to cry. "He loved me."
