The accidential Hacker

Harriet is a struggling painter.. One day she accidentially hacks into someone computer and it turns her whole life upside down


46. Back home


*Harri POV*

When my alarm begin to buzz I roll over and realise the bed is empty. For a few moments I lay in bed, listening to him in the shower. The lead ball in the pit of my stomach reminds me that I might not be back, and he might not want me back.

I shower quickly in the main bathroom and comes back dressed, with my hair done and makeup on, ready to go to the airport. Zac is in the bedroom looking at his clothes, wearing a towel around his hips. I don't want to meet his eyes, and go to the door to put the last things into my bag. When I return he is still not dressed, and I flop down on to the bed, laying on my stomach. I lay my head down on my folded arms and whispers into the bed. "It wasn't supposed to be like this."


*Zac POV*

I turn around, having heard what she mumbled, trying to find the right words to fix it. But I can't, and

I turn back to the wardrobe, choosing jeans and a hoodie. When I turn back I notice she is playing with her necklace, and I sit down, taking her hand in mine. I can tell what she is thinking. "Don't" I say sternly.

"You don't have to wear it, but you will keep it no matter what. Because I will always love you, no matter what, you'll always have my heart." I clear my throat and finished almost

inaudibly. "Even if it's not enough."

She nods, the ability to speak seems to have escaped her. Mike knocks softly on the door. "You two ready?"

"Yes". My voice is shaking slightly. "We'll be out in a minute." I start putting on my sneakers while Harriet get up and take her bags outside, waiting for me at the car. 


*Harri POV*

Mike wraps me in a tight hug, and I put my face against his shoulder and sniffle quietly. "Oh god, you didn't work it out did you?"

"No." Is all I can say, pulling away as I hear Zac approaching. Mike get in the driver's seat and Zac pulls me into a hug before I can get away. "I love you, Zac." I sob into his chest. He feels so warm, so good with his arms tight around me. I don't want to let go, don't want to say goodbye. 

 Zac kisses the top of my head. "I love you too, Harriet." He whispers. We pull apart and get into the back

of the car. The drive is silent except for the radio, neither of us has any words left. I keep my gaze out the window, trying to hide my tears, and he tentatively reaches for my hand. When I don't offer it though, he pulls back.

We arrive at the airport and I order them both to stay in the car, leaning over to kiss both of them on the cheek, and I manage to get in to the airport unnoticed. 

 A little later I sit on the plane feeling completely numb. It feels like I have said goodbye this morning, not just for a month but for good. The same thought is on a loop in my head. What the fuck just happened?


*Zac POV*

I say a silent prayer that she might turn around and run back, and when she don't I cover my face with my hand to keep from crying out loud.

Mike drives for a few minutes in silence. "Zac, are you OK?"

"Yeah just give me a minute, I will be." I sniffle. "What the fuck just happened Mike ?"

"I have no idea buddy. No idea." He tells me.

Half an hour later I look out the window and actually see outside for the first time. "Where are we going?"

"I thought you could do with a distraction. You have three hours, no filming, just rehearsing with Rodney and talking to people." He say as we pull up at the set.


*Harri POV*

 Ben is picking me up at the airport, and I almost throw myself into his arms, hugging him fiercely, not even knowing I started crying before I hear myself sob.

"What's going on?" He asks, rubbing my back.

"I honestly don't know, but it seems like I might end up as a single mother". I blurt out between sobs, trying to get a hold of myself, not to draw attention.

"Fuck. What happened?" He asks shocked.

"I don't know. I said I wasn't ready to come back yesterday, and then everything just unravelled in to a big mess." I fight to stop the tears from escaping my eyes.

"I'm sorry sweetheart". He says softly. "What are you going to do?"

"I don't know. He said things, I said things. Most of them were true. He wants me to think about whether I really want to be with him and if I don't he'll let me go without an argument. That in itself makes me think I don't mean much to him even though my heart tells me he loves me. It really hurt to hear that." My voice still shaking slightly.

 Ben leads me out to his car with a hand on my lower back. "Sweetie I have seen how that man looks at you, he loves you no doubt about that. Don't you think it was just the stress and pressure from all that has happened that got the best of both of you ?"

 "I don't know.. Maybe.. I hope so". I say, leaning my head back and closing my eyes, feeling once again like I am cought in a nightmare I can't wake up from.

A little later my phone pings and I take it from my pocket. It is a message from Mike, he had promised to keep me updated while me and Zac gives one another some space. 'Quick visit to the set, rehearsed with Rodney. He is sleeping now and he has everything he needs next to the bed. Hope you had a good flight, I'll call you tomorrow'.

 I am happy to know that he is okay..
