Bad Things

Of all the men mom had married, there wasn't a single one that could replace my dad. Except one.

The next morning, I found myself lying awake in bed. I glanced over, seeing Harry asleep beside me. I let out a sigh. Mom had to know. If Harry were to tell her, I’m sure he’d get a much different response than me. My phone buzzed.

It was a text message from mom about our reservation at the day spa. She had texted me that she would meet me there. I groaned and let out a sigh. I had almost forgotten about her day spa plans with me. It was the second to the last day of Spring break.

I was thinking silently to myself it the day spa would be the right place to tell her about Harry. “Hey, you’re up.” Harry said. His voice sounded so sexy when waking up. I turned to face him and smiled softly as I reached up to caress his cheek.

I texted a reply back to my mom by saying that I needed to take the time to pack and apologized that I won’t be able to make it to the day spa. I had a feeling that mom needed some time to herself, as did I. “You’re not going?”

Harry watched me set my phone down on the nightstand. I shook my head and told him that I wanted to spend more time with him instead since tomorrow would be my last day before I head back to school. He chuckled lightly, “Right. I forgot you’re on Spring Break."

“I don’t want to leave you.” I confessed.

Harry smiled softly and reached out to caress my cheek. “Then take me with you. I can resign, apply for a job where you’re going to school, and—"

“My mom doesn’t know. I don’t want her to get hurt."

“I don’t want you to be hurt. The two of us fooling around like this… Kathryn, it’s hurting you more than it’s hurting your mom. The second she finds out that this is going on between us, it’s going to hurt her. You want your mom to be happy, right?"

I nodded.

“Then, leaving is the best option for all of us. I’ll tell her that I received a job offer, but it would require me to move. We’ll wait until the summer. I don’t want her to be suspicious if I leave just as soon as you head back to school. Your mom will understand; and yes the long distance will be tough, but I don’t… I want to spend more time with you than just the breaks during school.”

Harry then sat up in bed and took of a necklace that he was wearing before handing it to me. It was a paper plane. He told me that he wanted me to have it. He put it around my neck and I looked down before meeting his gaze. Harry leaned in and kissed my lips.

“Kathryn, I have never felt this way about a girl before, especially one that I had just met. Although your mom is quite special to me, I feel that you and I have a much different connection. We get along so well, and—"

“Tell me this isn’t your goodbye speech."

Harry smirked and shook his head. “No. All I wanted to say to you before you interrupted was that I really like you, and I think I might be falling for you."
