"Who is she?" I sniffled.
"Uh.." He hesitated and I glared, "Okay but this morning he told me she's his new girlfriend"
"What.." I said, but not as a question. He looked at me silently in pity; we both knew I had heard him. He put his arm around me and we sat on the couch. I placed my head on his shoulder and sighed. Then Harry walked into the room, putting his shirt on as he walked.
"Oh Emily, hi!" He said smugly, "Sorry about before, guess I need a lock huh?"
"Aw no!" I said in the most fake sweet voice I could manage, "I should've knocked, but you know I wasn't expecting someone who was in love with me yesterday to be another girl"
"Babe, what's going on?" The girl walked into the room wearing one of Harry's hoodies. She was undeniably pretty, black hair and light brown eyes.
"Nothing cutie" He said and kissed her on the cheek.
"You're such a douchebag, Harry" I said in disgust, "Well you're right, nothing's going on and nothing will ever be again. So goodbye." I saw a hint of regret fill his face as I got up to leave.
"Emily, wait!" Louis said, "We can hang out today" I nodded at him and opened the apartment door. As I was walking out I heard Harry and Lou's snippet of conversation.
"Really Lou?" Harry said, "You're leaving me for her?"
"Sorry mate, but she's right" Louis shrugged and followed me out the door. Me and Lou got ourselves settled in a booth of a tiny diner down the block.
"So" He said sipping his tea, "Why did you come over before in the first place?"
"This is super embarassing, but I was going to take him back" I said calmly.
"What!" He said shocked.
"Yeah, I realized I was kinda leading him on, and I wanted to give him another chance" I said smiling, but then my voice got bitter, "Look where that left me huh?"
"It'll be alright, love" He smiled at me sadly.
"Thanks Lou, I really needed this" I said hugging him. I got into my car and drove home. I checked my twitter. Yes I still got messages from fans, even though they knew we broke up after I was knocked out. I was scrolling through my tweets, responding to some and then I saw one that made me stop. "Hey Emily, do you ever consider taking Harry back? You guys were my favorite couple!" I couldn't resist tweeting back. I angrily jabbed my keyboard. "Hi sweet heart, I was actually going to take back Harry, but I found some circumstances unfixable. Funny how life works, huh? xx" There Harry, wait until your fangirls see that.
I heard Louis come back inside, but it didn't sound like Emily was with him. That's good, cause I already told Brittany to go home. I sighed when I realized Louis wasn't going to come in and tell me he was back. It's a sure sign he thinks I'm wrong. I quickly signed on to twitter and out of habit, I clicked on Emily's page. My mouth dropped open in shock as I read what she tweeted one of my fans.
What the hell does that mean?
She was going to take me back?
I read through some of my tweets and saw that most of them were asking me about that.
"Louis!" I called.
"What Harry" He said rather then asked, but I didn't care. I figured he might know something.
"Look at these tweets" I said showing him them.
"Yeah and..?" He asked impatiently.
"Did you know?" I asked
"No, not until she saw you and Brittany. Then we went to the diner and she told me that was why she was there" Louis explained.
"Please tell me you're kidding" I said dangerously angry. Louis shook his head and shrugged.
I couldn't take it any more. I punched the wall out of pure anger.
"Bloody hell, Harry!" Louis yelled while I clutched my hand. I observed the hole in the wall with smug satisfaction, despite the fact that my hand was in lots of pain.
"You need the hospital, let's go" Louis said grabbing his car keys. I followed him outside.
I waited in the hospital for hours before they fitted a cast on my arm.
"What color?" The nurse asked, "White, pink, blue or green?"
"Green!" I said and she exited the room to retrieve it.
"Why am I so freaking stupid?" I asked angrily.
"You're not Harry!" Lou said comforting me, "Though punching the wall wasn't your best move"
"That's not what I meant" I said sadly, "I love her. And I could've had her back if I wasn't so freaking stupid"
The nurse walked back in then, which was probably good for Lou because I could see it in his face that he didn't know how to respond. He knows I've been stupid and I do too. The nurse plastered my arm in the bright green cast, then me and Lou signed some papers and left.
The ride home was quiet. I knew Lou didn't know what to say, which was fine because I just wallowed in my stupidity anyway. We got back to the apartment and I looked at the hole in the wall.
"Remind me to call someone to fix that tommorow, eh, Harry?" Lou requested.
"Sure" I agreed nodding, "Pretty big hole, huh?"
"Yes Harry" Lou yawned, "It's 2:30 in the morning, go to sleep"
"Night Lou" I said.
"Good night" He said smiling weakly. I knew it wasn't going to be a good night though. I couldn't sleep for hours and hours, all I could do was think about how stupid I was. And how it's all my fault.
