10 please!! With Harry angst with fluffy ending maybe?
he’s crying and he’s hiccuping and he can feel the dryness of his throat creep up on him like a shadow in the dark. harry feels like his heart is going to leap out of his chest.
“where were you when i needed you?” harry says with a croak. the palms of his hands are burning due to him digging his stubby fingernails into them. he looks at her with blotchy, green eyes, waiting for her to say something to him to at least ease the pain he feels. the thing is, harry was always an understanding person, he was always willing to here someone out for not following through with a plan. with [y/n] however? this time? he wasn’t going to be understanding. all he asked was for her to show up.
“no, no lame excuses, where were you when i needed you? i needed you to be there, for me,” harry’s voice is cracking and she steps towards him, holding her hands out in attempts to try and touch him and soothe him. harry however looks away from her and shrinks from her touch, backing up slightly. she sighs and slightly nods, receiving the message that he blatantly gave.
“i’m not used to this, by this i mean the whole spotlight ordeal. i know what i signed up for- trust me i know, but what i didn’t know was that i am so not prepared for it. i’m used to laying low and just doing things without having thousands of eyes watching me. i know you wanted me there tonight, h, but i just- i couldn’t do it, i’m not- i’m not like you. i’m not-” she chokes and harry’s tears hit the floor after rolling off his cheeks. she looks at him with blurred vision, and harry swears that he won’t forget this moment.
“c’mere,” he says quietly, just loud enough so that she can hear him. she shuffles closer to him and they both cry in each other’s arms, not saying anything. the conversation isn’t over, but for now- it’s just going to stay at bay.
