62. For the love of your daughter (Demi Lovato)
I wake up and feel something against my spine. I look around and realize I am lying on the floor of Harry's bathroom, my head is resting on Harry's lap. Harry is sitting on the floor, sleeping. Why the hell am I here? What have happened?
"Harry" I call "wake up"
"Hey" he says "how are you?"
"Confused. How I end up here? Sleeping on your bathroom's floor?"
"Oh you can't remember?"
"So, last night you drank too much and you got a little....crazy"
"Crazy?! How so?"
"You and Carrie were dancing on the dance floor, making a show of yourselves"
Flashes of Carrie and I dancing, body close, calling the attention of everyone. My checks flush
"Oh my Gosh! How could I do this??"
"Yeah...you were really...wild"
"And then what happened?"
"What do you remember?"
"I remember going to the kitchen alone and then...I talked to Mandy and we...we had a fight...and she walked out. I drank. I’ve found Carren. We danced but...you came and surprised me...we went to the backyard and...we danced and then I..."
Oh Gosh! Had I throw up?
"Had I throw up?"
"Yes, a few times. Then I took you home. When we got here you throw up again, again and again" he hugs me" I was so worried. I thought you would pass out! I didn't know what to do"
"So, I stay vomiting all night?"
"Short of. When you stopped you were so tired I got you to my bed. But after 30 minutes you woke up feeling sick again. You vomit and then felt sleep in my lap. I was so tired that I felt sleep here, in the bathroom's floor"
Harry took care of me. All night long, he stayed by my side
"Thanks for taking care of me" I say
I was going to kiss him when I realize I hadn't brush my teeth.
"I should take a bath and brush my teeth" I say
"Okay. I'm going to make breakfast for us"
He was about to leave but he turns around
"Today is April 2nd.Happy birthday. I love you" he says hugging me and giving a quick kiss
I open the bedroom and hear Harry talking to somebody. Who is here?
"Mom? Dad?" I ask when I enter the living room and see my mother and my father standing
"Hey Katy" my mom says
There is an awkward silence. I haven't called her for a long time, and I haven't talked to my father since I left my house
"I'm going give you guys some privacy" Harry says leaving the room
"We came here to..." my mom starts" well, today is your birthday and we just wanted to pass to say happy birthday and give you a present" she gives me a box
"Thanks" I say. I open the box and see a beautiful flower dress" It's beautiful"
"You're welcome. We also wanted to see if you want to have launch with us? Maybe go to that restaurant that we always go on your birthday..." My mom asks, insecurity clear on her voice
I look at her. It makes me a little sad. It's so obvious she miss me and only wants to fix everything. Unfortunately, my dad hasn't said a word. If only he apologized....
"Katy? Do you want to launch with us" my mom asks again
"I...well I got sick last night, I'm a little tired so I'd rather stay here resting..."I say the truth" but maybe we can go out tomorrow-"
"Oh my God" my mom interrupts me "What happened?! I knew you weren't fine! "
"Mom calm down, everything is fine...I just drank too much"
"I told you she hasn't change!" my father says "she is still the same rebel and irresponsible kid! Just like her brother!"
"I'm not irresponsible dad!" I say, anger taking over me "I practice, I am a good student, I make my own money!"
"But you still party all night long and drink until you vomit!"
"I'm a teenager! That's what teenagers do!"
"Your brother started just like that, after some time he just got worse"
"Well maybe the problem is you who doesn't know how to raise your children!" I split
My mom starts crying. My dad hugs her. I am frozen. Harry walks to the living room, concern on his face.
"Maybe you should go" he says to my dad
"Yeah...well, happy birthday Katy" my father says and leaves the apartment
I stay there frozen wondering what the hell I’ve done.
