5. Opening up

"It's beautiful. " I gasp

 In the center of the huge carpet of grass was a beautiful man made pond. It had stones around the perimeter and lily pads floating in the water. Ducks and frogs roamed about the pond. With a beautiful wooden bridge arching over it.

To the far side of the yard was a large pool at least twelve feet deep with three diving boards on the side. The tallest one taller then the house. On the far side of the pool was a fountain spraying into the other side like a rainbow. The hot tub was huge! It was like a small pool with seats all along the edge. And it was already hot I realized as I spotted the bubbles.

As I looked around I spotted a path under my feet leading to the far other  side into the mass of trees to who knows where.

"What do you think?" Harry asks snapping me out of my thoughts.

"I'm speechless. "

"You wanna go swimming after we eat?"  He says wagging his eyebrows.

"It's freezing out here!"

"Chill chill the pools heated. " he says giving my hand a squeeze.

I look down realizing I'm still holding his hand.

"Okay," I said, "lets go eat. "

He leads me into the house and we go into the kitchen.

"What do you fancy for?" He say smiling

OMG I love his accent so hot.

"Doesn't matter. "

"Pasta it is then. " he says opening the cabinets and grabbing a box of pasta.

I get up and start boiling some water. Once in a while I look up and our eyes meet. I blush and quickly look away.

We finish cooking the pasta and sit at the dining table right next to each other. I realize I havnt eaten all day and quickly shovel down two bowls. Harry looks at me laughing. I punch him softly on his shoulder and he winks at me.


"Yeah."  I mumble with my mouth full

"I don't know much about you...tell me about your life. "

What do I say? I'm an escaped orphan?!? There's a couple seconds of seconds and I start talking.  He sits down his food and listens intently. Really listening like he actually cares.

"I grew up in New York with my mom, I never knew my dad he left when my mom was pregnet with me. I went to school and loved swimming, you know the actual sport? I was really fast and fit and me and my mom bonded during it. "

Tears started rolling down my cheek and Harry wiped them away pulling me closer.

"When I was nine I was at school and my mom was walking down the stairs..."

I swallowed and took a deep breath.

"She had a heart attack and fell down the stairs...she...she D-D-Died she snapped her neck on the way down.."

The tears started pour from my eyes and Harry kept wiping them away rubbing my back to comfort me.

"Since my mom was dead and I didn't know my father I went to an orphanage... The last one was the third one I've been to till I ran away and ended up here."

I choked on the last sentence as my crying turned into uncontrolled sobs.

"It's okay Soph it's fine." He coos as he sets me on his lap.  I put my head in his shoulder sobbing, unable to stop soaking his tee-shirt.

"It's alright let it all out." He murmurs.

He Carey's me upstairs, down the hallway and into the guest room. He sets me on his lap in the bed and my sobs calm to whimpers. I lay my head in his chest and close my eyes as he strokes my hair.

As I fall into slumber I faintly hear him whisper in my ear,

"Sophie Thorn I'm so glad you came to me and ill never let you go. "
