Lost Stars

“If you want to know, you might wanna sit down then.”
I didn’t question.
Once seated on the couch, he opened his mouth, “I murdered a man.”
I choked.

24. CHAPTER 24

Harry’s

 

Once breakfast was over, the lads headed out of the house, leaving behind Diana and me.

I went into my room, picked up what I needed and then went into the kitchen. Diana was clearing out the dishes, so I called from behind her. “Babe?”

Soap all over her hands, she turned. “Yeah?”

I dug my hands to my pocket and took out the cheque. “I just wanted to give you this.”

She cleaned her hands and took it from me. “What’s-” She looked at it, her eyes widening. “Harry. That is a lot of money. Like, a lot lot.”

I placed my hands on her shoulders and explained, “I want you to have it. You won me my case. You won me my freedom. Last time I checked, clients pay their lawyers. So take it.”

She gently shook her head. “Love, I can’t-”

“Diana, it’s yours to take. You worked hard for it. I know you did,” I took her hand and kissed it.

She smiled, reading the cheque. “My first payroll, and that too from my love.”

I smiled. I pulled her by the waist, lifting her up and placing her on the kitchen counter. “It’s not as bad as it sounds, is it?”

She looked down at me and giggled, kissing me tenderly. “And the second one from Kanye West.”

I stiffened. “What? When?”

She tilted her head, the sun falling on her hair making it more brown. “I got a call this morning while you and the lads were eating. It was Kanye West’s manager, and he said he had heard all about your case and how “extraordinary I was”. He said he wanted me to defend Kanye in his case. He is suing PETA.”

I laughed. “Who even sues PETA, for God’s sake?”

She shook her head down and laughed, her soft hair tickling my neck. I let her head rest on my shoulder for a while, she laughter slowly disappearing into the sound of just us and our deafening silence. She slowly put her arms around me, and I wrapped mine around her waist.

And I realized, I could stay like this forever.

 

Diana’s

 

We stayed like that for a while.

Finally, I broke the stillness to ask, “Is this how it’s gonna be from now on? You making music and touring around and me fighting cases?”

I could feel his shrug. “It’s more like me slaying dragons and saving princesses, but yeah, I guess that’s how it’s going to be. And a lot of sex.”

I lifted my head, looked at him, hit him in the arm playfully, before falling back into his arms. “Well, I love it,” I said.

His hold around me tightened. “I love you.”

I smiled. “As much as I love Channing Tatum?”

He laughed. “Absolutely.”

“In that case,” I lifted my head from his strong shoulders and replied, “I love you too.”

I placed my palms on his jaw, pulling him to me. He kissed me softly, his familiar taste making me feel safe.

And I realized, I would follow this man till the end of the world.
