12. Chapter 11: "How?"

Slowly, I stood up when I had finally cried all the tears that I could
get out of my eyes. I brushed the dried tears of my face and fixed my
galaxy-printed legging and black shirt with studs on the shoulders.
Walking towards the door, I swallowed deep and prayed that it could go
open. I laid my hand on the handle and cupped it with my fingers. I
pulled at the handle and surprisingly, it was open. A wave of relief
washed over me and I smiled to myself. I opened the door slowly, trying
not to make any wound. Unfortunately, it cracked when I was halfway and
my heart dropped. I immediately stood still and waited for any noise of
Harry, that he maybe was going to look what that sound was, but no one
appeared and not even a sound was made. I tip-toed out of the bedroom
into the hallway when suddenly the bell rang. I quickly hid myself
behind a little closet, but he didn't walk into the hallway and again,
not even a sound was made. I slowly stood up and walked towards
the front door. I opened the door to see the man who had told me about
my mother standing in front of it.

"Hi Mr. Sty- Oh there you are Mrs. Moonsky! We've been calling and
ringing your doorbell for ages!" He said and sighed. "Why aren't you in
your apartment?"

I felt my hands gripping the door more tight and I bit my lip. "I'm
staying here with a friend.", I said quietly as I lied.

"I guess because you didn't want to be alone, isn't it?" He asked and
smiled. I nodded towards him. The man grabbed a walkie talkie and pulled
it in front of his mouth. "Code 506, yes, Mrs. Moonsky is safe, she is
staying with a friend so everything is okay." He spoke into it and
pulled it back in his pocket. I wanted to scream out that I
wasn't safe, what my mind said. But somehow, my heart said I do was safe.

"How is she doing?" I asked quietly and swallowed the lump in my throat

"She is still in coma so we can't tell." The man said and shook his
head. "I'm sorry." I nodded towards him again and it stayed quiet.

"Well, I will come around again when I know more about your mum's
condition, okay?" He asked and I nodded yet again.

"Bye Mrs. Moonsky.", He said and nodded towards me before walking away.

"Bye." I quietly said and closed the door, although I could go back to
my apartment, but there was something that stopped me from doing so. I
turned around, expecting Harry was maybe standing in the hallway and was
going to lock me back in my room or even worse, but I didn't see him. I
slowly opened the door of the kitchen and looked inside, but saw nothing
but darkness. I closed it again and walked over to the door of
the livingroom. I slowly opened it and peeked my head around the
doorframe. And there he was, sitting on the couch with his head in his
hands and his elbows leaning on his knees. Somehow, he looked broken,
hurt and frustrated and I wondered why.

"You can come in, I won't bi-" Harry said in an angry voice and stopped
when he realized what he was saying. "I won't hurt you." He corrected
himself, but remained in the same position. Slowly I walked over to him
and sat down on the couch next to him, with enough space inbetween us.
He still didn't move or made eyecontact and I twiddled with my thumbs.

"D-Do you want something to drink?" I asked him quietly.

"I don't drink or eat anything else than blood.", Harry said without
emotion in his voice. I nodded slightly, although he couldn't see and
looked down at my lap when it stayed silent.

Suddenly, Harry broke the silence by saying something, but I couldn't
hear it since he said it mumbling.

"What?" I asked.

"I said, I'm sorry.", Harry said louder this time and turned his head to
look at me, eyebrows frowned just like always. I nodded, not knowing
what else to say or do, and he sighed as he turned his head to stare at
the wall opposite.

"I don't know what I was thinking by locking you up. It was not because
I'm scared that you will blurt it out to anyone, because I trust you and
I'm not lying now.", Harry said and ran a hand through his hair.

"I think I just don't want to be alone and right at this moment, I have
you. Honestly, you are really special to me. I never thought that you
would come back for me after I almost bit you, I never expected that.",
He said and sighed as he looked at me for one second before looking down
at my shirt, which made me feel a bit uncomfortable to be honest.

"May I ask you something?" I asked him quietly and his eyes shot back up
to mine before he nodded slightly.

"Why didn't you b-bit me?" I asked him and played with my fingers,
waiting for his answer,

"I don't know, to be honest. I think although I was hungry, I realized
it was you and I just couldn't do it.", He saidand leaned his back
against the couch. "Why did you came back after I almost killed you?" He
asked and stared at the wall.

I sighed, "I also don't know. I just ran back to you.", I said and
frowned my eyebrows, thinking about a reason why I came back for him.

"But why would you run back to a monster?" He asked with a
disgusted voice when he said 'monster'.

"You're not a monster.", I said and slowly laid my hand down on his
shoulder. He looked at it before staring back to the wall. "They don't

"Here is the evidence that they do.", Harry said and pointed at himself.

"If you were one, I would have never come back for you.", I said and
squeezed in his shoulder. The muscles under my hand relaxed and he sat
down more slumped.

"I wish my life just could be normal again.", Harry said and frowned his
eyebrows even more, although I could see his eyes were getting watery.

"How?" I asked quietly, "How did you became a vampire?" I saw him
scrunching up his nose when I said 'vampire' and I could see the
disgust written all over his face.

"It's a long story.", Harry said and looked down at his lap.

"I have time.", I said and gently stroke his shoulder. "I won't judge you."

Harry sighed as he closed his eyes, "When I was younger, well, I mean,
when I was, you know." He stammered and I nodded towards him, signalling
that I understood.

"In that time, I was a boy you can call a 'player', I think. I was
popular at school, had girls falling head over heals over me and
everyone wanted to be friends with me, or even be me. I always flirted
with all the girls who I liked to flirt with, which were a lot, and I
often ended up getting caught kissing girls while I skipped lessons.",
Harry said and bit his lip.

"But one time, it was different. At a party of my old friend, I flirted
with this girl with electric blue eyes and black hair, but she
was different from every other girl for some reason. I think I became
curious and  so stayed around her during the whole party. When we went
upstairs, I planned on doing 'that thing', but she didn't. . She pushed
me down on the bed and immediately started to kiss my neck roughly. I
remembered I asked her what was up with the rush and she pulled her head
away to look at me with those golden eyes, which frightened me. Then,
she bit me. It hurt so I fought back and pushed her off the bed. She ran
away, leaving me screaming my lungs out because of all the pain. That
was when it happened. Because I was too strong for her and fought back,
I didn't die, but because she already bit me, the poison was going
through my veins and already changing me." Harry ended. "If I could only
turn back time." He whispered and I saw tears were threatening to fall
out of his eyes. I immediately wrapped my arms around him.

"I'm so sorry for you, Harry." I whispered and laid my head down on his
shoulder. I felt him shrugging his shoulders slightly as he answered.

"You can't help it, August.", Harry said with a broken voice which made
me break down. Tears started to leave my eyes and I felt really guilty
for being 'normal'. My whole body started to shake as the tears fell out
of my eyes. I felt Harry's strong arms wrapping itself around me,
pulling me close.

"Don't cry, August, please don't." Harry whispered and stroke my hair
just like he had done that other night when he crawled into my room. His
hand stroking my hair did make me feel calmer, just like the last time,
and soon I had stopped crying.

"I'm truly sorry for all that I've done, I'm just..." He trailed off.

"Your emotions are messed up?" I asked, concluding everything and I felt
him nodding his head.

"It's just so hard. I want to be around you so badly since you make me
feel alive again, but at the same time I just want to suck life out of
you. It's so hard to calm myself down when I'm around you.", He said and
I shuddered. "But I promise you I will try my hardest to fight back the
lust.", He said. I noticed how hard my heart suddenly was beating and
that I was panting heavily. Things had become really serious, I hadn't
expected him to say that.

"I'm truly sorry you needed to hear that.", He said stopping with
stroking my hear and tried to push me off him. I slowly unwrapped myself
and looked him in the eyes. "I truly understand if you never want to see
me again... just... go.", He waved towards the door and leaned forward
again, cupping his face in his hands. I didn't move,didn't left the
apartment, I remained in the same position as I was in before; sitting
on the sofa looking down at my lap.

"Please go.", Harry said harshly, not looking at me.

"No.", I said without thinking and looked up from under my eyelashes
when I saw him turning his head to look at me.

"Why not? A few hours you wanted nothing more and now suddenly you want
to stay?!"

"You told me you did it because you want to be around me, I stay because
I also want to be around you." I blurted out and held my hand in front
of my mouth and widened my eyes when I realized what I just had said.

"You do?" Harry asked and sat back up. "After what I just spit out?"

I nodded and a sigh left my lips.

"Thank you August." he whispered and I looked up into his eyes.

"For what?" I asked him and pulled up one eyebrow.

"For everything." He said and wrapped his arms around me, pulling me
close. I was a bit astonished by what he did since I wasn't expecting
him from doing so. "Thank you." He whispered and I smiled as I leaned
closer against him.

"It's totally worth it."
