22. 21



I walked into the house and sat my bag on the table by the front door. I yawned and stretched, it had been a very long day; too long. I saw that the TV was still on, and walked into the living room. I saw that Michael was laying there asleep. He was stretched out, half laying on the couch and half laying on the floor. I smiled and just stared at him. Why did I get so defensive over him earlier with Amanda? I have Harry now and I’m finally happy again. I love Harry more than anything or anyone in the world, but I felt so protective over Michael, I even lied about him having a girlfriend. I shook it off and woke him up. He jumped and fell off the couch completely, causing me to laugh. He looked up at me annoyed and sat up.

 “What time is it?” He asked yawning.

 “It’s almost eleven, I just got home.”

 “So how was your day?” He asked smirking at me.

 “How do you think, I spent the entire day with the most annoying person in the world.”

 “Was it that bad?” He laughed.

 “I mean not really… she actually seemed like she was trying to get along with me, but she’s a good liar so I don’t know what to believe.” I shrugged.

 “Well maybe she actually is trying. I don’t know I don’t have any siblings I don’t know how they act.” He smiled at me.

 “Yeah, don’t worry you weren’t missing out on much. Siblings suck….. well at least mine does.”

 “Just give her some time and then you’ll find out if she’s really trying I guess.

 I nodded, “Well I think I’m gonna go to bed I’m tired as hell.”

 “Yeah I think I better go to bed before I fall asleep on this uncomfortable couch again.”

He laughed lightly and we both walked upstairs. We said goodnight to each other as we went to our separate rooms. I walked into my room to see Harry sleeping peacefully. I smiled and quickly changed my clothes. I crawled into the bed and curled up to Harry.


 I woke up the next morning still hugging a sleeping Harry. I rolled over and picked up my phone from the bedside table. It was nine in the morning; I had a few text from Amanda and a missed call from my mum. I opened my text and read through Amanda’s messages. They were all about how much fun she had yesterday.

 ‘I had fun too; we should definitely do it again soon.’ Well it’s a lot easier to lie through text.

 For the next thirty minutes or so I laid in bed scrolling through all my social media until I got bored. I plugged my phone in and got out of bed quietly so I didn’t wake Harry. I walked to the bathroom and turned on the shower. I took a quick shower and wrapped a towel around my body. When I opened the door I slammed into someone. I had expected it to be Harry, but when I looked up Michael was standing there. I nearly screamed… I was standing in just a short towel.

 Michael was never up this early, so I thought I would be okay to walk across the hall in just my towel. Obviously I was wrong. I put my head down and quickly ran back into my room. I closed the door behind me while breathing heavily. Luckily Harry was still asleep and I quickly got dressed.

 When I was finished getting dressed I crawled into the bed and on top of Harry. I poked his nose and he smiled and opened his eyes.

 “Morning,” He whispered.


 “What time did you get home last night? I didn’t even hear you get into bed.”

 “It was around eleven. I made sure I didn’t wake you up.”

 “So how was it?”

 “Now bad,” I lied, not wanting to rant again.

 “So you made progress with her?”

 “Yeah, I think… so let’s go get some breakfast.” I said getting off the bed.

 “No, come cuddle with me.” He said pouting.

 “But I’m hungry.” I pouted back.

 “Dammit, you know I can’t resist your pout.” He said throwing the duvet off himself.
 I giggled and ran down to the kitchen. When I got there Michael was sitting at the table eating a bowl of cereal. My smiled dropped and I avoided eye contact. Harry ran up behind me and started to tickle my sides. I laughed uncontrollably and tried to run away.

 “Stop Harry,” I laughed.

 He finally stopped and I stood there breathing heavily. I turned around and pushed his shoulder.

 “You’re such a dick.” I laughed.

 “But you love me.”

 “True,” I said wrapping my arms around him.

 I looked over to see Michael sadly staring at his bowl of cereal. I pulled away from the hug and walked over to refrigerator to find something to eat. Harry walked over and sat at the table with Michael. The fridge was practically empty, so I decided on cereal as well. I definitely need to go shopping.

 I sat down next to Harry and slid a bowl over to him. We sat and ate in silence.

 “Hey I think I need to go grocery shopping later do you guys need anything?” I said as I finished my cereal.

 “Just the essentials, none of us have jobs and we’re low on money.” Harry said getting up and putting his bowl in the sink. Shit he’s right, and then rent for the flat is due in three weeks.

 “I need to find a job; I was supposed to do this a few weeks ago.”

 “We all do,” Michael finally spoke up.

 “True, so who’s gonna start looking first.” Harry questioned.

 “Well I was going to go grocery shopping today, I might as well start looking while I’m out.” I suggested.

 “How about, we make this a competition; the first person to get a job gets control over the Friday night movie night movie for a month.” Michael said raising his pierced eyebrow. Harry looked at me and I shrugged.

 “I guess it’s a deal. But I swear to god if you make us watch Mad Max I’m killing you in your sleep.” Harry threatened.

 Everyone shifted uncomfortably at his threat, even Harry.

 “You know just ignore that last part…. We’re still not watching it though.” Harry said walking into the living room.

 I followed and sat down as he turned on the TV. For some reason we always watched the news in the morning. Even when I was a kid and a teenager I always found it fascinating to keep up on the current events.

 “Do you wanna come shopping with me or should I leave you alone with Mr. Sulky over there.” I looked back to see that Michael was once again staring at him empty bowl of cereal. I wonder what had gotten into him.

 “Should I talk to him?” Harry questioned staring at Michael too.

 Michael’s head shot up and we both snapped back to the TV.

 “What are you guys doing?”

 “Huh, what are you talking about?” I asked as if I knew nothing.”

 “Why were you staring at me?”

 “I have no idea what you’re talking about.” I laughed.

 “Whatever,” he laughed lightly and stood up. He walked over to the coat hanger and grabbed his coat.

 “Where are you going?” I question.

 “Just out,”

 “Don’t start that shit again. The last time you did that I found out my dead boyfriend was still alive.” I laughed again.

 “Don’t worry it has nothing to do with you.” He smiled cheekily and walked out the door.

 “Dick,” I mumbled jokingly.

 “So you never answered my question. Are you coming shopping with me or not?” I poked his cheek where I knew his dimples are when he smiles.

 “Um no, it’s just been a while since I’ve made progress with finding where Zayn is. I’ve slipped a little on the search since I came back.”

 “Oh… I mean do you really have to. He’s not going to come back; the police have been combing through everything. He hasn’t made a threatening move since that night.”

 “Of course I have to, Brigh. He’s the man who almost killed both me and you, do you really want that guy to be walking around freely. I don’t care what it takes to get him out of our lives for good; rather it is killing him or getting him locked away forever.” I shifted uncomfortably and scooted just a centimeter away from him.

 “Harry, could you please not talk like that.” Now that I know about his past I know that he means it when he says he’s going to kill Zayn.

 “I’m sorry, but just thinking about him makes me so fucking angry.”

 “Could you please calm down; do you want me to make you tea or something?”

 “No, I’m good. I just need to breath.”

 “Cuddle?” I asked pouting my lip and poking his dimples again. He laughed and tackled me into a cuddle.
