15. "Friends"

A few hours later, Harry and I were sitting in the garden on some chairs. We heard from outside the music that was played inside.

I had decided to tell him everything and he told me everything he thought of Melody, Dan and the others. He also told me that he would move with them to Atlanta and that he was Mels best friend.

I liked him and we exchanged numbers.

Anyway, we sat outside in the garden, with a few bottles, some snacks and talked.

"How can you bear to be friends with her?" I asked Harry.

He looked at the sky and I drank again from my bottle. He sighed and then looked at me again.

"This is difficult. I would of course love to be with her... But I know that she doesn't feel the same for me. Nevertheless, I think it's better to be friends than to have nothing to do with her... Do you understand?"

I nodded and Harry stood up.

"I think I'm going in now. Maybe there are a few pretty girls that I don't know until now."

I nodded again and he was gone.

Just as I was getting up, I felt dizzy. I cursed myself and at the last moment someone hold me before I landed on the floor.

I mumbled "Thank you" and then looked up. In front of me stood Matt.

"Are you okay? You don't look good at all..." he said and helped me to sit again, but this didn't make me feel better, on the contrary, it got worse.

"Thank you for this nice compliment," I tried to say sour, but it only came out a whisper.

He laughed briefly, then knelt down, looked me straight in the eyes and hissed, "If you break her heart, I'll be there for her. Don't even dare to hurt her or you'll get to know real pain!"

He smiled again and was about to go away, as I said confused, "Did she tell you that? I could only break her heart if Melody and I were ever together..." And in that moment I realized that I had made ​​a mistake.

He looked at me suspiciously, walked slowly back to his knees and said, "Melody? I'm talking about Selena!" 

I tried to save the situation somehow and make the best of it, so I quickly said, "Um, well, I mean, even then I wouldn't break her heart, because she's great and Selena is really great too. Of course I knew you were talking about her, but as you half stood here, you've reminded me of Melody, and since then I have probably changed the name..." He looked at me weird.

"So I look like my sister?"

"Uh, no, I don't mean that, uh, I just don't feel good and... ohoh."

I looked at him apologetically, as the nausea feeling over came me again... only this time I couldn't hold back... Matt sat up quickly... but still...

I puked on his shoes.

When I was done, I wiped my hand quickly over my mouth and looked at him.

"I'm sorry?" I said, but somehow it ended up in a question.

He looked at me shocked and then yelled "What the hell?!"

Then he turned quickly and walked away. But before he went back inside, he turned again and cried, "You... I know my limit! We're done!" He turned around again, took off his shoes and went inside.

And I... I sat outside and was finally able to think clearly again. I looked at the sky. It was pitch black. There wasn't a single star. I looked next to me and didn't notice until now how much I drank. There lay a lot of empty bottles.

Matt was right. Somehow. I knew usually my limit too... I didn't understand what was wrong with me.

I got up and now I was no longer so very dizzy. I walked quickly and just wanted to go into the bathroom before I puked on someone else.

I went in and felt really good again. I saw some girls dancing and laughing and had to smile. I danced a little, but then I felt sick again and I remembered what I wanted to do. So I quickly went to the bathroom, closed the door and then I just made it to the toilet and threw up again. I brushed over my mouth as I still bent over the toilet as someone opened the door and came in.

The door was locked from the inside and a voice said, "Maybe you actually shouldn't have come..."


I slightly shook my head and said "No. That was right."

Then I remembered what she had told me, so I stood up, turned around and said it again.

But this time I added "I've been thinking about everything... And..." I breathed in deeply. "I would of course prefer to be with you... Just because I thought day and night only about you and just couldn't forget how we met. But now I know that you obviously don't feel the same for me, so it would be better if we were at least friends. If we had nothing to do with each other, I'd probably freak out," I said.

Melody smiled, came to me and said, "I have to agree with you." She took her hand and stroked my cheek.

"Wow, you're hot," she said.

I looked at her with a raised eyebrow and said "That's not how a friendship works, I think…" 

She laughed and said "No, seriously. You are hot. You are burning up, Drew."

I took my hand, touched my face and realized that she was right.

I frowned and said, "The alcohol. This also-"

She interrupted me and said, "I've already heard." She laughed shortly. "It's okay, he has enough shoes."

I grinned at her and Melody went to a cupboard, took out a washcloth, made ​​it wet and put it gently on my forehead.

I looked at her and thought: it will pretty hard to be just friends with her.

Melody dabbed with the washcloth my forehead and told me what she had done after my disappearance from her room.

Afterwards she of course followed me and wanted to continue to talk to me, but I was an idiot and ignored her... And she also didn't miss that I had danced with every pretty girl and flirted with them.

I apologized and she shook her head. I leaned over the sink, rinsed my mouth out and then looked at her as outside the DJ said, "Now a slow song".

I held my hand to her and asked, "Shall we dance?"

Melody smiled at me, closed her eyes to concentrate better on the beat and then opened them again.

She frowned and said slowly, "This is a slow song."

I nodded and said, "Perfect to talk."

Then we smiled at each other, she put her hand in mine and said, "Okay."

On the dance floor danced many couples. No one looked at us as we left the bathroom holding hands. No one asked why we had been so long in it or why we held hands. And that was a good thing. 

As we danced I asked "Is there nothing possible to do about it? Something so that you can hear again?"

She shook her head sadly, but then said slowly, "Actually, yes. But it is a complicated operation and... well... since the crash, I have quite a fear of doctors and hospitals... but especially of surgery. In addition, the operation would be quite risky and..." She shook her head again. "Very expensive."

I looked at her confused. "But... you seem to have a lot of money. I mean, you told me about the house, what you and your siblings get..."

She looked at me. "You’re right... But that even exceeds our limits."

The next few seconds nobody said anything ... But then I remembered something.

"I could still pay for it all... What do you think?"

She looked at me with big eyes, shook her head and laughed shortly. "Are you crazy? No. Drew... Justin... I don't want to take advantage of you... no. No. You can't. It's my problem and I'll get the money somehow together. Don't worry."

"But it would be much easier and you could also pay me anything back, that would be absolutely no problem. Even though I wouldn't ask that of you."

"No. I'll get it somehow. Trust me."

Then I turned Melody, Dan caught her and danced with her.

I smiled at her, turned around and stood in front of Selena.

I grinned, handed her my hand and said, "Shall we dance?"

She smiled, took my hand and said, "Finally."

We began to dance, botched a few steps and laughed a lot.

Matt looked at us evilly, but smiled every time Sel looked at him. Then he grabbed Candice and danced with her. Chaz danced with Lauren and I noticed Harry talking to a girl. I had to grin and enjoyed the rest of the night.



The next morning I woke up on the couch.

I groaned as my head started to hurt. I slowly sat up and looked around.

Hm. Lounge. Pretty messy. Although... most of it wasn't there anymore...

I sleepily made ​​my way to the bathroom. I yawned and opened the door... and then remained rooted to the spot.

My hand was on the latch when I stuttered, "Oh God, I'm so sorry, I didn't know that, um..."

A strange man who was about to close his button-down shirt and a half naked woman stood in front of me, stared at me.

I wanted to run away, but I couldn't move an inch. The man and the woman stared at me and I stared at them.

I heard steps and was finally able to look away from the adults. Melody came up to me.

"Uh, Justin? This is the room of my..." she looked at me and then looked into the room. "... Parents."

There was a brief break, but then she laughed, pulled me away from the door frame, shouted briefly in the room "Sorry" and then quickly shut the door.

Then she looked at me with a raised eyebrow.

"You have a real talent for this, right?"

She started laughing and after I had a couple of times breathed calmly, I could laugh with her again. Then she showed me the way to the bathroom and told me where the kitchen was. After I washed my face and went on the toilet, I left the bathroom and walked cautiously to the kitchen.

At the big kitchen table were already Lauren, Selena, Matt, Melody, Mrs. Sullivan and her husband. Mrs. Sullivan commanded the past helpers of Movers Agency and her husband poured himself a cup of coffee. I went up to him and apologized quickly. He smiled, drank from his cup and then was already with his wife out of the house because they wanted to drive up.

I greeted all who were sitting at the table, sat down next to Selena, just took her hand, smiled warmly at and then began to eat.





I took a sip of tea from my cup, watching Justin. He looked so happy when we had laughed today morning, but now he took Selena's hand and looked totally in love.

I looked at my plate.

I... I liked Justin. A lot. But somehow I was afraid. The day we met… It seemed so far away now. It could change everything. I could never see him again. But now I knew him and I knew I couldn't let him go again. But on the other hand there were Selena and Dan. I had been thinking about it all night, but I came to no conclusion.

I couldn't asses him. I just couldn't. Once he was really in love with me and didn't want to leave my side. Then he had realized that it wouldn't work and it was better if we were friends and now... now he was sitting across from me with his girlfriend and looked like a happily taken boy.

Like the moments of last night would never have happened.

Like we had only been friends all the time.

Like there wouldn't a fire burn between us.

Like there wouldn't sparks fly every time we only looked at each other.

I swallowed and looked up as Justin asked "Where did you get the stuff?"

Selena laughed briefly and then told him that she had slept the night in Laurens room and she has given her some clothes for the day.

Lauren laughed and said "I couldn't let her leave this house in the clothes she hat entered it!"

Everyone laughed and I put a fake smile on. No one seemed to notice that I didn't smile properly, but Justin looked at me a moment longer than the others. I looked back at my plate and noticed that it was the first time I was glad to be able to hear anything.





Two hours later, the last bags were packed. Lauren, Matt and Melody dragged full bags in Matt's car. Then Selena went over to Lauren and hugged her tightly. Matt stood beside them and laughed at anything that they said.

I paid no attention to them, I was busy looking angry at Melody, who kept smiling and holding hands with Dan. Enduring they waved their arms and Melody's skirt fluttered in the breeze. They giggled most of the time and looked at each other happily. I felt how I got more jealous as the minutes passed and clenched my hands.

Suddenly someone knocked on my back. Startled and caught, I turned around quickly. In front of me stood Harry and smirked at me.

"Hurts, huh?"

I smiled briefly and nodded.

"Wait," he looked at me, then walked between the two cars and shouted "My God, can't you just say goodbye?" 

Dan startled and explained the situation briefly to Melody. She smiled and kissed him. Then she ran to Matt's car, just to stop shortly afterwards again and to turn back to him and throw him an air kiss.

Dan shouted "I love you!"

She laughed and cried "I love you, too."

She turned back around quickly and I could see a short, challenging look in her eyes, which she only gave me.

She looked away quickly, I looked away quickly.

I went to my car and sit behind the wheel. To my surprise, Harry sat beside me, not Selena. I looked at him questioningly with a raised eyebrow.

"I thought it would be easier."

He smiled at me and I nodded slowly, but then I changed my mind and shook my head.

"Thanks... but you don't have to do that. I know how much she hurts you, too. Even if it is unconscious."

His smile was weaker, but it was still visible. "Yeah... but have you just seen her look?"

He glanced at me and I nodded.

He looked away and said "The way she looks at you... Wow." He shook his head. "I wish she would look at me like that sometimes. She likes you. A lot."

He looked at me again and I didn't know what to say.

So he said, "Justin, I've nothing against you. You're a great guy and really nice. I'd never expected that. But what you're doing right now with Selena and Mel..." He shook his head again. "You can't do that. At the end you only hurt both."
