*Harry's Pov*

I was an idiot.

I accidentally told her that I 'loved' her. I wanted her to feel better about herself, and it slipped out. I was just trying to be nice, I never meant for it to come out the way that it did. It was just a mix of the words, nothing more.

I was intentionally fucking things up between Harley and me, but I couldn't help it. I had to text her as Danny, it was the only way I could talk to her. I didn't have to be unemotional and distant if I was Danny. I had an appointment in twenty minutes but being a bit late was worth it if it meant texting Harley for a while.

But it was starting to get out of hand.

Danny. When. Are. We. Going. To. Meet. Each other.
-

The worst thing was she didn't know that each text she sent, she was charged £0.50p. She's sent more than a hundred texts in the past week. But I still didn't want to put a stop to this yet.

-
7:40PM
I don't know. But when we do, I'll take you somewhere nice.
-

What was I saying? Why was I feeding her this false hope?

-
7:42PM
Are you telling me that you want to take me on a date?
-

Oh fuck.

-
7:43PM
Of course.
-

-
7:43PM
Oh. Okay. Or we could just go to McDonald's and get a coffee
-

-
7:44PM
Wait, you don't want to go on a date?
-

-
7:45PM
I don't know. I have this thing where I get anxious from socialising and I feel like labelling our get together as a date will put more pressure on me. Do you get me?
-

I let out the longest sigh I could ever possibly make.

-
7:46PM
Why are you anxious? You do trust me, don't you?
-

-
7:47PM
If course I do. I get anxious with everyone, not just people I don't trust.
-

I didn't know that. I thought she was anxious because she overreacted to almost everything and had major trust issues. I didn't realise... It was so severe.

-
7:49PM
Tell me more.
-

-
7:52PM
Well, when I get anxious my voice shakes, I feel sick, my whole body trembles, my throat goes dry, I lose my breath and my heart pumps extremely fast. In fact so hard that I can feel my throat vibrate from it- I think that's what makes it so dry.
-

-
7:53PM
I never knew it was that bad. I thought you just felt worried. Who makes you anxious?
-

-
7:56PM
I think you mean, what makes me anxious. Literally everything. Getting on my school bus, getting off my school bus. Walking down the halls, walking to class. I can't answer something in class without my voice shaking. Getting lunch in the cafeteria is awful too. And whenever I walk with someone I always have to walk behind them because I can't handle the pressure of walking at the front. My legs shake from how anxious I get and I'm more likely to fall.
