“I don’t want to believe in anything anymore. I always end up being hurt.” Jess said crying.


3. Chapter 3

“Where are you going, love?” A familiar voice asked.

“I waited for you here. C’mon, I’ll drive you home.” he said while walking towards me. I removed my headphones and stopped the music as I smiled to him. His smile is so breath taking. His hair’s messily arranged on one direction. His jeans clung low having a peek to the band of his boxers and his shirt’s sleeves are rolled up showing his toned muscles more prominent.

I’ve seen him before; I realized he’s the beautiful lad I saw earlier. He’s so sweet. Like, he had waited for me. I smiled waiting for him to come closer but he walked pass me. I’m fucking pissed, this is embarrassing. I turn around to see a girl behind me waving her hands to him while cheekily smiling. Well, she looks pretty unlike me. I’m just a potato. She dressed nice, simple but looks fabulous.

“I’m going home now. Why did you waited for me?” she asked while holding his hands and swaying between the space that separates them.

“I saw you and I thought of driving you home.” he paused. “C’mon, I feel like watching a movie and you’re going with me.” And they started walking away. Guess that’s my cue on leaving too.

I changed my mind on going home straight from work. I think I need time to think, to have peace of mind. After minutes of walking, I feel the soft grass already. I’m in the park, my feet brought me here. I used to go here whenever I need time to think and to be alone. The atmosphere is relaxing and it always helps me to feel better.

I walked towards my favorite spot, the swing under the tree. I sat down and let my feet move the swing. Flashback hit my thoughts. This swing is so special to me. Kevin and I  used to stay here whenever we have free time. He’s the one pushing me and we laughed as if we’re the only people in the park. Exactly this day, a year ago, he left me for another girl. The girl that filled the gap between us. The girl that made him feel that he’s free to do anything. The girl that gave her the things he wants to. It was Mads. He broke up with me on the phone. I tried to save our 2 years relationship. I never slept after that call. I’ve spent all my time thinking and trying to call him. The plans we made keeps on reminding me the memories we shared.


I was really worried about him. He did not leave a message for me this morning. When I got home from school, I called Kevin. I’m really excited so I grabbed my phone and dialed his number. He’s not answering. I tried to call again but this time, it was declined. I tried for the third time but now it’s busy. Maybe he’s just talking to his classmate. I texted him,

Okay, I’ll not call yet. I think you’re talking to an important person.

I sighed when he didn’t reply. I waited for 2 minutes and called again. He declined it again so I texted him.

Why can’t I call? :( is it that important that you have to decline my call? I want to talk to you already. </3

There’s something wrong. I know there is. My heart is beating so fast and it’s starting to hurt. I feel he’s talking to that girl again and he’s enjoying his time chatting with her. He declined my call over and over again just to talk to her. Am I not important to him anymore? Is he in love with her now? These thoughts keeps bothering my curious mind so I tried to call again. He finally answered. He didn’t speak so I talked first.

“Why are you not answering?” I paused. Tears are forming in the corner of my eye. My breathing’s going fast as my heart’s beating. “You’re talking with whom?” I asked, my voice shaking.

“Don’t call again. I’m talking to someone.” he said not answering my question.

“Is it Mads?” I asked as tears started to fall from my eyes.

“Goodbye Jess.”. Without any doubts, he ended the call. I didn’t give up. I called him again.

I thought you said you’re not talking to her anymore?

No, I didn’t. I just said that to make you feel good. To make you feel everything’s fine.

That isn’t funny. I’m dreaming right? This is only just a dream. Yes, it is.

No, it’s not Jess. I have to hang up now.

He ended the call. He ended our relationship. Mads ruined everything, she’s the reason of this break up. Tears stream down my face, I can’t breathe properly. I bent my knees to my chest. The situation is too hard to absorb. I can’t stop crying.

Days have passed but I’m still trying to get him back. I know there’s still a chance and my hope didn’t fail me. He texted me. He said he want me back He said he’ll avoid Mads for me. He said he still love me.

So, we tried to be together again but this time it’s not really working anymore. I found out that they’re seeing each other and they spent a day together. I just want to end this. I want to be free. I want to deserve the love I want to feel. I don’t want to think things about him and Mads anymore. I’m really tired. I’m ready to let him go.

He is not texting me again so it made things easier for me. I took the advantage of saying my last words to him. I said that he deserves to be happy. He deserves to be loved like the way he does. He deserves the girl who can do the things he like. He deserves the girl who can bond with his family whenever they want to. Even though it hurts, I still wished them good luck and that I’ll be okay soon.

*End of Flashback*

That’s the reason why I don’t have a boyfriend at the moment. Kevin was my first boyfriend and probably my last until I find the man who’ll give me the love I deserve. I also thought that having boyfriend will just distract me with my studies and I won’t give him the time he wanted/needed because I’m the type of person who spend too much time in my studies because I still need to impress my parents that I’m capable of achieving the things they expected from me. I felt drops of salty water all over my face as I saw a hand offering me a handkerchief. I looked up and saw the curly haired guy earlier. He nodded encouraging me to accept it as he stood beside me. I wiped my tears and thanked him.

“Are you alright?” he asked. His voice seemed to be really worried. I looked at him, his brows are furrowed and he looked really serious.

“Yes, I’m fine. And don’t ever think that offering me a handkerchief will lessen my feeling of me being annoyed to you.” I answered without looking at him again and started to walk away from him. Whenever I see his face, I remember what he did earlier.

“What about that?” he chuckled. I stared at him raising a brow. “So that’s it? You’re annoyed to me because I chose you to make my coffee.” Now his tone makes me more annoyed.

“Yes! And please stop following me.” I walked fast so he won’t follow me but his long legs helped him to catch up. When I stop, he also stop. What is wrong with this guy? I tried to walk fast as I can but he’s still following me.

“Stop it! Oh my god, why are you following me?!” I yelled as I stamped my feet on the ground.

What does he want from me? Whenever I ask him he always leave me a blank answer instead he stood in front of me and cheekily grin like he’s crazy. I don’t know but even he annoys me, I find him cute. His dimples were deeply intended into his cheeks as he cheekily grinned at me.

“W-what?” I asked him again. “You crazy or something?” he didn’t answer again so I took the advantage of escaping from him. I don’t want him following me, that’s all.

I have no idea what’s on his mind. What if he had a plan of kidnapping me or killing me. I’m being paranoid because of him and I’m not liking the situation. I ran quickly for him not to follow me anymore but large arms caught my small body. My back is now leaning his chest as he carelessly carried me. I’m so done!

“Let go of me!” I wriggled onto his hold but he’s so strong.

“Where do you think you’re going, love?” he asked as he effortlessly moved my body facing him. My thighs are held by his large hands while my hands are pounding his chest. We’re so close to each other. I’ve never been this close to a stranger before.

“Please, let go of me.” I almost cried. “Let me down.” He furrowed as he noticed that I’m frightened.

“Promise me first that you won’t run away again.” He pleaded. I nodded and raised my right hand as an answer.

“Why are you doing this? Why are you following me? I’ve never seen you round here before.” I asked looking at the curly haired guy in front of me. His towering height made me look really small. His big green eyes are focused on anything but me. I’m melting.

“Sorry.” he mumbled. “I’ll drive you home.” he ordered as he grabbed my hand and tugging me to the direction where a black Audi R8 Coupe was parked. His thumb pressed the remote as the lights blinked indicating that the car is now unlocked. He yanked the door open for me to climb in. As soon as I’m seated, he closed the door and jogged to the driver’s seat. I buckled my seatbelt as he started the engine and we left the park.


“How did you know where I live?” I asked surprised and amazed at the same time as we arrived my flat. He parked right in front of my flat and heard him turn off the engine. He climbed out of the car and jogged to my side and helped me go down.

“Thanks. Uh..uhm sorry if I can’t invite you inside. I think my sister’s there so, yeah.” I said pointing at the car which was parked on my garage.

“That’s fine.” he paused, smiling. “Good night. I-uhmm..going now.” Harry unlocked his car while walking across the street to where his car was parked. He climbed in and yanked the door closed and left the place.

When I got inside, I saw Kim in the living room watching television. I walked towards the sofa and tapped her shoulder.

“So, what brings you here?” I asked her raising a brow.

“I have things to fix for my wedding and you’re flat is near the place so I’ll be staying here for a night.” she explained making cute expressions for me to say yes.

“Okay fine. But you can drop a message before going here you know. And stop doing those expressions.” I laughed. “It doesn’t look good on you.” I teased walking to the kitchen and opened the fridge.

“You know what? Why not cook for me because I’m hungry.” she shouted for me to hear her.

“You’re so at home eh? At first you didn’t say you were coming and now you’re asking me to cook for you?” I replied while preparing the food. As soon as I finished cooking, I called her to eat and led her to the guest room after. She said she’s tired so I left her and walked to my room.

I was going to take a shower when I heard a beep from my phone. I opened the message and it was from an unknown number.

Nice meeting you. :) – H .xx

Nice meeting me? He followed me the entire time and didn’t even bother to ask my name. Now that gets creepier. There are so many questions in my head about Harry. He’s so mysterious. I want to know more about him but he sort of frighten me. But who knows, time will let me know the answers. I took a bath and get ready to sleep but I saw the handkerchief I used earlier.

“Thank you. Without you, I could have had to go home with my shirt wet.” I said as I placed it between my hands and chest.


“Jess…Jess. Wake up you have uni today right?” Kim asked shaking me.

“Hmmm..” I growled in complain.

“You’ve never changed. Get up now or you’ll be late.” She threatened. “I made breakfast. Go downstairs soon.” She added as I heard the door yanked close telling me Kim already left the room.

I sat up and leaned to the headboard as I saw the handkerchief on the side of my bed. I grabbed it and placed on my side table. I got up and wore my slippers and lazily walked downstairs to the kitchen. Kim was already preparing her tea. I was surprised that she cooked quite a lot for breakfast. The last time I saw like this was 4 years ago when things are fine and we’re happy.

“Hey. I..uhm. Dad wants you to come home two weeks after this week for my engagement party. I want you to be there.” She mumbled.

“No way.” I yelled at her. I don’t want to go home. This is my home, nothing more.

“But Jess, this is for me. It’s not for dad or mum. Please, come to my party.” She pleaded. I don’t know what to say. I just don’t like to go.

“Kim, I ran away from Mum and Dad. And also to you. That would be embarrassing if I’ll come.” I protested. This is too much to absorb at 7 in the morning. “I’ll think about it.” I added seeing Kim looked relieved as I walked out of the kitchen.


“I left my emergency key on the desk. Please secure the house before you leave. I’m going to uni now.” I shouted so Kim would be able to hear me.

I have no exams today. I just have to attend my duty in the library for being a scholar student. This is just another quiet day for me but exams made my stay more productive than the usual. I read my books while waiting for someone to borrow books.

Five minutes left and I can go home now. The silence is so deafening. I’ve finished reviewing so I placed my book on my desk. I released a heavy sigh and slouched on my desk. I covered my face with the inside of my hands and closed my eyes for a moment.

“Hello, beautiful.” I heard a raspy voice said. I removed my hands. My eyes widened when I saw his face very close to mine. He knew my reaction will be shouting so he covered my mouth quickly. He removed it when he saw my expression changed.

“What are you doing here? You startled me.” I yelled whispering.

“I can use my school library whenever I want.” He said smiling while leaning his weight on my desk by his forearms. This is surreal. He’s studying here, in my university.

“You’re shocked, I know.” He teased. “C’mon, I’ll take you somewhere.” He ordered putting my things on my bag and tugging me with him.
