Elizabeth’s POV

I busted through Eleanor’s front door slamming it behind me, trying so hard not to spill out my tears. 

“Hey !” Louis said holding a plate of food as he walked to the kitchen. “The burgers are ready” he turned and looked at me and his face dropped.

“Elizabeth?” Louis said his voice filled with concern.  I quickly ran past him and up the stairs, tears running down my face. I walked into the guest room and closed the door behind me. I climbed into bed and pulled the pillow towards me and sobbed.

Harry’s Pov

“Where’s Elizabeth?” I asked worriedly as soon as Niall and I walked inside of Eleanor’s house.

“Mate, what happened?” Liam asked as the rest of the lads walked inside from the back yard and stood around waiting for my answer.

“I went over to talk to her dad to try to make things right but it just made everything worse” I sighed shaking my head looking at the floor.

“Her father threatened to call the cops” Niall said speaking up.

“Well, we all knew something like that was going to happen. He usually says that all the time to Harry” Louis shrugged.

“Yea, but he also included Elizabeth as well. He doesn’t want her around anymore as long as she is with me” I said looking at them and they all looked shocked.

“That’s not fair!” Louis yelled scowling.

“Poor Elizabeth” Perrie added in a quiet tone.

“I’m going to go check on her” I said and quickly ran up the stairs.

Elizabeth’s POV

I heard the door click opened and I picked up my head off the pillow to see who it was. I saw Harry and he gently closed the door behind him.

“I’m so sorry Elizabeth” Harry said sincerely with sad eyes staying by the door.  I nodded biting on my lower lip.

“Come here” Harry said sitting at the end of the bed and I crawled over to him. Harry immediately set me on his lap and wrapped his arms around him. I sobbed into his chest fisting my fingers onto his shirt and he rocked me back and forth.

“I’m sorry Elizabeth, I didn’t mean for any of this to happen. I swear I just went to go talk to your dad about not being mad at you anymore” Harry whispered at the top of my head.

“I know Harry. It’s okay” I said my voice breaking. I pulled back and looked up at him and pecked his lips. I hate seeing him be this worried and upset and knowing that I am the one to blame makes me hate it even more.

“I love you” I whispered once I pulled my lips away from his.

“I love you too. I will do anything for you” He said grabbing my face between his hands and wiped my tears away with the pads of his thumbs.  

Hearing his words made me feel so guilty, especially with everything that I have told Eleanor earlier. I hate lying to him. I want to tell him everything I do, I just don’t know how. I don’t know what he will do once he finds out. I rested my head back on his chest and sniffed pulling my sleeves farther down form my wrist.

I am feeling so much right now and I could tell that my anxiety has gotten the best of me today. Even right now as I’m wrapped in Harry’s strong, protective arms, I feel so scared and vulnerable.  I need help, it’s that simple.

I believe that maybe if I ask Eleanor to help me tell the boys it might be easier to tell Harry. They can all pitch in and help me. Maybe that could be worse? Maybe, Harry will get even more upset that he was the last person to know. This is all so confusing!!

I pulled myself closer to Harry and started to cry again, letting loose the pain of my father but mostly the pain that I might inflict on Harry. I love Harry and the idea of Harry getting hurt completely tears me apart.   Harry leaned back and layed us down his arms still wrapped around me.
