“You ready to go to the shop?” Harry asks as he picks up the keys off of the side and I nod my head as I picked up my phone and sunglasses.

Harry yells to everyone that we were going and soon we were on our way to the shop for food.

The car ride was a comfortable silence with the radio playing quietly and I couldn’t help but think what it would be like if me and Harry were together, the bickering we would do over the stupidest things but would make up in the end anyway, the little random gifts we would buy one another just because we could do that or even the hugs and kisses we would share when he was home from work.

No Emily, you can’t be with him, you can’t do that to him. I remind myself and soon the thought of me and Harry growing old together or even being in a relationship at our age were swept from my mind leaving it blank.

“Are you going to come in or not?” Harry’s voice snaps from my thoughts as he stands at my car door trying not to laugh.

“Oh yeah, sorry.” I stutter and climb out of the car, beginning to walk towards the shop with Harry by my side.


We buy everything our parents asked for along with some sweets and chocolates for everyone and we check out but when we walk out of the shop I’m in shock.

“HARRY! HARRY!” Fans scream as they try to get a piece of Harry, he sees my frightened expression on my face and grabs a hold of my hand and begins to push through the crowds of fans.

They were right when they said they were known all over the world.

I couldn’t hear, let alone think over the noise the fans were making but one question stood out to me and I’m positive it did to Harry too.

“Harry are you dating Emily?!” A fan asks and soon everyone is asking him. He turns to me and looks into my eyes trying to look for an answer but I couldn’t give him an answer. I didn’t even know what we were.

Were we dating? I mean I know we’ve kissed before and we’re going on a date but with everything going on right now we haven’t even thought about our relationship status. I would like to say we were together but another part of me reminds myself that I’m ill and I’m slowly dying, I can’t lead him along and then leave him one day. It wouldn’t be fair on him.

I see him look from the fans, to me, our hands and then back to me again before facing the fans.

“Uh n-no we’re just friends.” He smiles slightly and pulls me away again, leading me to the car.

I couldn’t help but feel a stab at my heart, why does our relationship feel more than just friends to me and not him?



“Emily are you okay? You’ve not spoke the whole drive home.” Harry finally speaks as we pull up at the villa, we hadn’t spoken or even shared glances throughout the drive home from the shop.

“Yeah I’m fine.” I say, climbing out of the car and walking down the steps to the villa.

“You’re obviously not,” Harry snaps as he follows me down, “Is it because of what the fans asked?” He asks and I turn to him.

“No it’s what you replied.” I reply.

“I didn’t know what to say Emily! I don’t even know what we are how am I supposed to tell them what we are?!” He raises voice at me and I stay silent knowing he was right, we don’t know what we are.

“Well what are we Emily?” He finally asks his voice lowering as he stares at me and I look away from his gaze.

“I-I don’t know.” I stutter, running into the villa before I break down in front of him.

“Emily? are you okay?” I hear Gemma ask as I rush past her to get to my bedroom but she follows me in.

“Emily what’s up?” She asks as she takes a seat on my bed beside me and pulls me into a hug. “What happened?” She asks and I tell her, I tell her everything that went on at the shop right up to what happened outside moments ago.

“I don’t know what I want us to be, I like him. Of course I like him but I still don’t know whether I want to be in a relationship with him with everything that’s going on…” I sob into her shoulder.

“Do you want me to go talk to him?” She asks me softly but I shake my head, it would just cause more arguments.

“Do you want to be alone?” She asks me a few moments later and I nod my head, wiping my eyes. Why am I always crying?

When she gets off of the bed she tells me she’ll come back later and that she was going to check on Harry and finally I’m alone.


I hated how one second I wanted to be with Harry and the next I was telling him I didn’t want to be with him. I’m sending mixed signals to him, no wonder he’s annoyed at me. I know Gemma was right when she told me I should live the rest of my life happily and that meant being with Harry but at the same time I knew I would be hurting him if I did leave this world.

It would be different if I still had a chance of beating cancer and living the rest of my life happily and normally but it’s not like that and I knew it was a matter of months or even weeks before I’d become too ill to fight against cancer and then I’d…leave, I’d leave my family, my friends and most of all him and I was honestly scared about that.
