9. Chapter 9

"Harry, wait, we need to talk," I called just as he was about to leave. 

Gavin and Amanda had already left.

"What's gonna happen now?" I asked. "With us,"

Harry turned around looking at me. He didn't say anything. He walked over to me and wrapped my in his arms in a warm embrace. I was uncertain about the future, but I know I felt safe in his arms, I wanted to be with him. 

We stood there for a while, before finally he spoke. 

"I need some time to think," He replied. 

This was not the sort of answer I was expecting. 

"Harry, I am getting a divorce, you just called off your wedding, I don't know how more obvious it can be that we can now finally be together. Is that not what you want, because you could have mentioned that a few hours ago before all this kicked off," I said, I was angry.

"It's not that, I just need some time," He replied. 

"I'm not sure if you heard in Gavin and I's agreement, but he now owns the house and I'm moving out..-" I started. 

"Katie, you can come and stay with me," He answered. "My door is always open to you,"

"Oh and what sleeping your spare room, be your roommate?" I replied sarcastically.

"Katie, you know I didn't mean it like that, look just calm down, everything will be alright," 

"Harry, just shut up for one second, I do not get you, this is it, we have all the freedom in the world and your want me to just wait for you, I don't have forever," 

"Look I didn't mean that long, I'm just not sure if I'm ready for a commitment, you and I have history, we're complicated, look just calm down,"

"Harry, do not tell me to calm down, because I'm, I'm, Harry, I'm in love with you," I breathed out deeply after that.

He didn't reply for a few moments. 

I started to laugh, I felt so stupid. I thought this whole thing was about us getting back together, but Harry clearly just thought we were just sleeping together. 

"Typical," I laughed. "So, your were just using me this entire time?" I asked. "I was just a friend with benefits? Can you honestly look me in the eye and tell me that none of this meant anything to you," I said. 

I had stepped closer to him now, we were only about a metre apart. 

"No," Harry answered, grabbing my waist and pulling me closer to him so there was no gap between our two bodies. He kissed me so passionately, that I practically forgave him right there and then for being a dick two seconds ago. 

"Harry, wait," I said, pulling away from him, my hands still clasped around his neck. 

"Katie, I'm so in love with you and I do want to spend the rest of my life with you," He said. 

"Then why were you making such a fuss out of it," I answered. 

"I don't know, I'm an idiot, please forgive me. I want you to move in with me, I want to spend my life with you," He pleaded. 

"You promise?" I smiled. "No more time needed to think about the fact that we're complicated," I mocked. 

"You and I will always be complicated," He replied. "Wanna be complicated together?" He smiled. 

"You bet I do," I grinned, kissing him again.
