I found myself in the same position as last Sunday when I first left. Emerson and I stood there in each other's arms as my taxi waited for me by the curb, but I really didn't want to go back this time. I was tempted to tell the cab driver to just leave, and then call up my lawyer and tell him to fuck off.

All because I hated seeing Em sad. It made me pretty upset especially after the nice weekend we had spent together. We had a lot of great sex, laughed a lot, and we even went out on a date. It was our sixth date so far, and I wasn't quite sure if I should be doing something about that now.

"I'll be back in a week," I reminded her.

She pouted, "That's too long."

I kissed her pretty lips, "I know. But then I'll be back for good, and we won't have to go through this again."

She sighed and nodded her head, "Yeah, that's true."

"Are you staying here this week?" I asked her, already knowing that she was going to since she did last week. I didn't mind it at all, I wanted her to stay here while I was gone. Besides, Liz really was enjoying her company.

She pursed her lips and nodded, looking a little shy about it, "Yeah...probably."

I smiled down at my pretty girl, "Good. I have to go or else I'll miss the plane. I'll call you when I land okay?"

She nodded, "I'll be waiting then. Have a good flight back." She leaned up on her tip toes to kiss me, but I made it easier and just lifted her up to close the distance quicker. She smiled into the kiss causing me to as well, and moved her lips passionately against mine.

I watched her as the cab drove away, and the farther I got from her, the bigger that hole in my heart got.


I arrived back in Los Angeles that night, and was immediately questioned by Kate once she saw me walking in. Her room was across the hall but apparently she had been waiting for me in here for who knows how long.

"Um hello? Where the hell have you been Harry?" Kate scolded me as she sat on my bed her her bathrobe. I knew what she was trying to do, it wasn't her first attempt at 'seducing me' so far during the trip. She was a pretty girl but not exactly my type.

I unzipped my suitcase and began taking my things out, but stopped when I noticed a pair of panties in there with a little post it note on them.

Thought you'd like these since I never wear underwear anyway xoxo, Em

I smiled. "Hey are you listening? Everybody's been worried sick because you decided to disappear!" Kate said as she got up from the bed. I quickly covered up the underwear and the note before Kate could see it. She was already pretty jealous of Emerson, I could tell that just by the looks she gives Em whenever we pass her or vice versa. I'm pretty sure that Em knew about Kate's crush on me, and by the way she said her name the first time I left, I think that she was jealous.

I sighed, "It's not anybody's business, Kate. Can you please return to your room now?"

Kate huffed behind me, "What is up with you Harry?"

"I'd prefer it if you called me by my last name. Just because we're not in the office doesn't mean my preferences have changed."

"So Emerson Dean calls you Mr. Styles like everybody else?"

I turned around to look at a smugged face Kate, but I ignored her, "She calls me by the name everybody else does, yes."

Kate shook her head, "I don't believe that. I'm not stupid-"
