It Takes Patience
Chapter 25: A Secret Agenda
Chapter 25: A Secret Agenda
Harry helped me carry my things upstairs and then turned to leave. Even though it is probably not the best idea that he is here, I definitely know that I don’t want him to go yet. I looked at my watch and it read eleven fifty-five. Laurie doesn’t leave the hospital today for her internship until one I think, so I wouldn’t have to worry about us being caught. I don’t know why it is exactly that I feel I have to sneak while Harry is over here, but I’d rather be safe than sorry. Having him here for an hour can’t be that bad, right?
“Hey, wait! You still owe me answers Harold.” Harry turned on his heels and looked at me quizzically.
“What more can I tell you today glasses? I’m so excited that my life has become a tell all. Let’s see, I went for a wee this morning and I ate cereal today for breakfast. Oh, and I may or may not have jerked it in the shower.” Harry replied sarcastically, but I’m not backing down this time.
“Fair is fair Harry. You asked me a personal question in the car and I answered it. It’s my turn.” Harry rolled his eyes at me and then walked back into the kitchen where I was. He hopped on the kitchen island counter and sat down. He took off his hat and began running his hands through his hair before taking a deep breath.
“Fine, but this is the last question I will answer today about the hospital. It’s draining talking about it all the time when you know I don’t want to. What is your question? Last one of the day so make it good.” I stopped putting my groceries in the refrigerator, looked up at Harry, and crossed my arms.
“Tell me the truth. Why were you admitted to the hospital?” Harry leaned back on the counter resting his arms behind him and pursed his lips. When he looked back in my direction he opened his mouth then closed it. When he did speak he wouldn’t look at me, but past me at the clock on the wall.
“I’ve told you this already. I’m mental. I have Rapid-cycling Bipolar disorder and sometimes I black out and can’t remember what I did...That’s it, that’s why, don’t ask again.” The mood had once again shifted between us. I didn’t feel like he was lying, but I don’t think that he is telling me the whole truth either.
I decided against prying this time due to his shift in moods and turned to continue to put my groceries away when I slipped on some water that was on the floor causing me to fall back on the counter that Harry was sitting on. When I slipped, I fell backwards and Harry put his arms out to catch me. I was between his legs and my head was on his chest. He smells so good. I could feel my body taking control as it tingled and goose bumps rose on my skin while I was in his arms. Harry bent his head down, still holding me when he whispered in my ear.
“Clumsy much glasses?” When he spoke, his voice was huskier than usual and chills went down my spine. My brain told me to move, but my body was clearly determined to win this round.
I turned around still in his arms and put my hands on his thighs. Harry licked the corner of his mouth drawing my attention there. He stood up off the counter causing his arms to lower to my waist and even though he wasn’t touching my skin; my body reacted to the contact. Our faces were only inches apart and I hadn’t realized that our bodies had pressed together.
Harry grinned down at me and when I couldn’t take being this close anymore without action, I kissed his mouth were his tongue had just been. Harry tilted my chin up with his forefinger and his thumb before he kissed me. I bit at his lower lip wanting him to open his mouth and when he did my tongue immediately found his. The kiss again started slow and got rapidly more intense. We moved from the kitchen to the couch in the living room, never breaking the kiss and almost falling over our own feet as we walked blindly backwards.
I pushed Harry to sit down on the couch and he groaned and pouted from the break of contact. I couldn't help but giggle as I straddled him and began to grind my hips on his growing bulge. Harry took his bottom lip between his teeth and inhaled sharply before grabbing the back of my head bringing my lips back down to his. My arms went from his shoulders to the hem of his t-shirt as I broke the kiss to pull it over his head. When the shirt hit the floor, I kissed him from his mouth, to his jawbone and down to his neck. Still grinding in his lap, I began to nibble on a spot then lick over it causing Harry to moan deeply and twist his head around to stop me.
“No marks” Harry warned me, but it was too late. Our lips connecter again reheating the kiss and his hands found the hem of my tank and pulled it over my head. Harry’s eyes went from mine to the navy blue lace bra that I was wearing as he began to kiss me between my breasts.
“Mm, H.” I couldn’t suppress the moan as his lips began to suck my nipple over the lacy material. He flicked his tongue over the area and then went to the other and did the same. Though the only thing that was off was my shirt, I felt so exposed and nervous to be here with him doing this. Then I remembered why. ‘He’s a patient and you’re going to ruin your internship for a little bit of fun’. My focused side was starting to become my conscience, but I didn’t want to stop yet. Before I knew what I was saying the words started falling out of my mouth and I couldn’t stop them. I just wanted my focused side to shut the hell up.
“Ugh, Harry! Fuck me, pleasse?!” Harry stopped his assault on my nipples and I could feel his grin against my chest. When he pulled back so that I could see his face, there was a delicious smirk on his lips.
“What was that glasses? I don’t think I heard you.” Why is he teasing me?
“Please H? I want to so bad. I never really wanted to with anyone else until now.”
“I can’t...” The smirk never left Harry’s face and I felt mortified. Did he just tell me no?
“Why not?!” I asked him a little harsher than I intended to, but I just got rejected. Harry smiled at me showing his dimples and sat back on the couch. I don’t know why I was still on his lap but I couldn't move.
“Well for one, I wasn't expecting that. Also, I don’t have any condoms on me...unless you do that is?” Oh.
“No I don’t!” I whined and my brain finally gave my legs the signal to get off of Harry and put my shirt back on. I was annoyed because I felt if I didn't do it now, my focused side would win and we would never get this far again.
“Aren't guys just supposed to have those on them at all times?” I was still annoyed and Harry laughed.
“Umm, I've been in a hospital for two years...we aren't exactly allowed to just carry those around. It's a hard habit to just get back into doing.” Don’t remind me of the Hospital or the fact that you’re a patient.
“Then how did you have sex with that girl at Maudsley?!” Harry grinned and shook his head.
“I had my ways of getting them, but I wasn’t supposed to have them. Are you jealous?”
"No I'm not jealous. Its just aggravating."
Harry stood up getting off the couch to put his shirt back on while tutting at my lie and smirking and I looked at my clock. It was only twelve thirty we could do something else.
“Wait, can we do the other thing at least?” Harry walked up to me put his head on mine and put his hands at the top of my jeans. I immediately felt my skin get hot when I thought he was going to unbutton them.
“No.” He grinned and then went over to the counter to get his hat. This is the second time today that he has told me no.
“Why are you doing this to me?!” I whined hoping that he would reconsider.
“Because I won’t be able to stop there if I start now. It’s too risky. Next time glasses. Be prepared...in more ways than one.”
Harry closed the door to my apartment and left.
As I finished up putting my groceries away, I could feel myself get flustered and frustrated again when I heard my phone vibrate on the counter top.
From: Channel N°5
I've been on this flight since 11pm LA time! How did you do it?! I can’t believe I’m going to be in London in 2hours and 25 AHHHHHHHHH I MISS YOU SO MUCH!!
The text from Channel was exactly what I needed to shift my thoughts off of Harry.
To: Channel N°5
AWW I’ve missed you too babe! I’m so excited. Your phone is supposed to be on airplane mode by the by aha! Turn it on before you make the plane crash in the Atlantic!
When I finished sending the text, I went down to Laurie’s place to see if she was back from the hospital yet and thankfully she was.
“Hey Laurie how was working today?”
“It was stressful! My department leader is a total dickhead! Peyton and I haven’t had a real assignment in at least a week! You have no idea how jealous I am of you interning for Baker. You probably have the best work going out of the 11 other interns here.” I felt bad for L., but the work that I’m doing is not what I signed up for either. I love that I’m interning for Dr. B, but I've made it considerably harder for myself now dealing with Harry in a non-professional way. I smiled weakly at her and suggested that we go out to get ice cream. We were both anxious today.
As we walked down to the store to get a pint of Ben & Jerry’s I felt guilty knowing that going there was not my only intention. I need to get condoms. Laurie can’t know why I’m getting them or even that I am going to buy any for that matter, but I just didn’t want to get them alone. I have never had to buy them before and I know it’s going to be awkward. When we got to the store, Laurie went towards the frozen desserts and I left. I told her that I might as well get tampons while we were here and she agreed to meet me at check out.
When I finally found the aisle I was looking for I felt overwhelmed. Why does there have to be so many brands and what does ‘ribbed for her pleasure’ actually do? I grabbed some Trojan multi-mix because it was the only brand I knew about and paid for them and the tampons I didn’t need in the pharmacy section. When I turned around I saw Laurie walking towards me.
“Hey I was waiting for you, I got the ice cream.”
“Sorry, I just saw there was no line back here so I figured I might as well pay then come find you.” I lied and could feel the blush rising in my cheeks. I wonder if she saw me.
“No worries, let’s go eat this yeah?”
When we got back to my apartment, I hid my purchase in the drawer next to my bed under some clothes and then came out in the living room. It was now 2:15 and Laurie agreed to ride with me to Heathrow Airport to pick up my other half, Channel.
