anonymous asked:

Good to know that you support statutory rape and infidelity with the excuse "but the underage 14 year old girl loves the married 24 year old man". I hope your spouse suddenly dumps you for a person half your age and everyone supports them over you and saying its your fault.

😒😒 

It was not statutory rape. Can y’all stop changing their ages? Rhaegar was born in 259 AC, Lyanna in either 266 or 267 AC (we do not know her exact year of birth). The Tourney at Harrenhal happened in 281 AC - when Rhaegar and Lyanna met he was either 21 or 22, and she either 14 or 15. They ran away a year later, making him either 22 or 23 and her either 15 or 16. It is not a big age difference. Daenerys started having sex with Daario when she was 15/16, and Daario is way older than 20. Are you seriously going to say that Daario raped Daenerys and that her consent was dubious? I do not like Daario, but he did not rape Daenerys! Her relation with him was her first consensual relation, despite her being a teenager.

I think you will be surprised by the laws of sexual majority in 2017 across the world. Here you go, enjoy the map. In France for instance, the age of consent is 15 - that means that a teenager of 15 can legally have sex with a person over 18, though of course there are additional regulations and some grey areas in the legislations, related notably to the age difference (15/25 will be more easily accepted than 15/50 for example) and to whether or not the adult held a position of authority over the minor at the time of the sexual relation. A concrete example: the current president of France, Emmanuel Macron, met his wife at high school, when he was 15 and she was 40. They started their relation shortly after they met. This case resulted in an endless debate under every post in the French media about the presidential couple. Those who are pro-Macron argue that he was 15 and that in France he was considered adult enough to consent to sex, and those against Macron argue that his wife was a teacher and therefore in a position of authority over him, making her a sexual abuser (I personally fall into the last category, cause 15/40 is too much of an age difference for me to accept; she even had a child older than Macron). In any case, she never faced legal charges and they are together now for 24 years.

I do not support infidelity but I do support love. Once more, Rhaegar did not love Elia and their marriage was an arranged one. He married her when he was 20 and she was 23, it was a marriage based on duty and not heart. If he fell in love with Lyanna, it was his right to pursue a relation with her, especially since she fell in love with him as well. And Dornish people do not frown upon extramarital affairs. 

It made me giggle a bit because the names of Dory’s parents in the Finnish translation were Jenni and Sauli, which are nice translations of Jenny and Charlie, like that’s what a kid trying to say Charlie might be comfortable of, but those are also the names of the Finnish presidential couple. Also since Jenni has kept her maiden name, which is Haukio, it’s even more funny because hauki means a type of fish (pike I think).

To any LGBTQA+ youth out there.

Don’t let tonight’s results make you ashamed of who you are. Trump will spew hate and homophobia through America, Not only effecting us but the world.

Your duty now it so be as PROUD. And HONEST. As you can be and step up and fight the man. We won’t let ANYONE take our right to love.

I love you Everyone loves you so much no matter who you identify as or love! Please be strong ❤️

ART IMITATING REAL LIFE? I knew this PDA elevator scene reminded me of another famous (as in real life famous) Presidential Couple having a private moment in a public space.  Check out and compare President Obama’s Secret Service team on the night of his 2009 Inauguration  to Fitz’s SS team in this scene–both crews look equally embarrassed by the Presidential intimacy. In the words of Livvie:Look away… because they will know.” hehehehe….

Your POV

March 6th 2015

I stared up at my phone, in complete disbelief of what I just heard.

What the fuck just happened?

What did he just say?

He’s in love with me?


No!

Just- NO.

I put my phone back on my bedside table and tried to go back to sleep.

I couldn’t, for the life of me, I couldn’t go back to sleep. I laid there in bed, my mind racing with all these thoughts that drove me crazy. Two hours passed.

I changed into my workout clothes and went for a jog… at 5 in the morning. I needed to clear my head.

Today was supposedly the last day of school before spring break but because I’ve already taken all my midterms, I didn’t have to go to classes and neither did Madeline. Today was supposed to be the day we caught up on our sleep since we barely slept all week, cramming for midterms.

I finished my jog at around 7am and was still frustrated so I decided to wake up my lovely best friend.

I went in her room, sat down on the edge of the bed, “Madeline.” I shook her shoulders.

She didn’t move.

“MADDY! Wake up! I need to talk to you.” I shook her harder.

She slapped my hand away, “Woman it is early and I am supposed to be sleeping in!” She pulled her covers over her head.

“Derek’s in love with me.” I said nonchalantly, knowing how she was going to react.

Not even a second later her body shot up in a sitting position.

“EXCUSE ME? Did you just say that DEREK is in love with you?” She brushed her hair out of her face.

“Yep,” I popped the ‘p’ as I stood up and paced around her room.

She rubbed her eyes and yawned, “What makes you think that?”

I scratched the back of my head, “He drunk called me at 3 this morning and told me.”

“Shut up! What did he say?” She might’ve been sleepy a minute ago, but she wasn’t now.

“He said something about how everything I do makes him feel things he shouldn’t and that he missed me and wanted to hear my voice… Oh and how Harry should give me the world because I ‘deserve’ it.” I made quotation marks with my hand.

“NO… WAY! Oh my god, Harry was right!” She laughed.

“God it’s not funny! What the hell am I going to do? How the hell am I going to tell Harry this without setting him off?”

“I don’t know…” She rubbed her nose

“Don’t you dare tell Niall. That lucky charm of yours has already spilled about Oliver; I need to be the one to tell Harry this.”

“Okay fine, but when are you planning to tell Harry? You do know we are seeing him in a couple days….?”

“I know! Shit we are flying there on Sunday, so that gives me two days to think.”

“You’re going to tell him in person?” She raised her eyebrow.

“Well I don’t want to tell him over the phone! He’s going to flip and I won’t be there to calm him down PLUS maybe he’ll be on his best behavior since our parents are going to be there.”

“Good idea…” She hummed and then checked her phone, “Oh my god it’s not even 8 in the morning, I hate you.”

“No, you love me.” I blew her a kiss.

She stuck her tongue out as she read her text messages.

“Our parents are flying in tonight by the way,” She held up her iPhone for me to see the flight confirmation Aaron had sent her.

“OH YAY!” My mood quickly changed, I’ve been dying to see my mom, Lisa and Aaron. I had already seen my dad earlier this week and he was stayed in New York to work while my mom finished up business in Atlanta.

“Okay thanks for talking to me, I’ll let you go back to sleep my beautiful best friend.” I sighed as I headed out her door.

“Yeah I need my beauty rest, you know?” She smirked.

“Well then you’re going to need to sleep for a whole month,” I quickly said before I sped out the door.

“YOU BITCH!” I heard her shout as I laughed and headed into my room to shower.

- - - - -

“THERE ARE OUR LOVELY DAUGHTERS!” Lisa said jubilantly as she walked off the jet.

My dad, Madeline and I decided to go pick them up ourselves.

“Mom!” Madeline wrapped her arms around her mom.

“Lisa!” I embraced the two of the them briefly before I went to hug my mom who had just stepped off the plane.

“Dad!” Madeline shouted as he finally made his way down the stairs.

We all briefly said our hellos and got into the car to go out to dinner.

“I’m craving a really good burger right now,” Aaron excitedly said as he rubbed his stomach as he sat in the front with my dad.

“Oh I know just the place!” Madeline said from the backseat.

So there we were, the six of us, in a hole in the wall restaurant in New York that served the best burgers any of us had ever had.

“God I love this place!” Madeline sat rubbing her stomach, “I’m stuffed.”

“Now that, was a damn good burger.” Aaron said as he wiped his mouth.

“So Singapore, huh girls?” My dad looked at us.

“Dad, please be nice to Harry this time.” I shot him a glare.

“What are you talking about? I am nice.” He acted innocent.

“Don’t you worry, I’ll handle your dad.” Aaron placed a hand on my dad’s shoulder.

“Oh yeah, and who the hell is going to handle you when you meet Neal?”

“Niall!” Madeline corrected.

“Sorry, NIALL.” My dad looked at Aaron.

“Obviously, you.” Aaron laughed.

“WE will handle  your fathers,” Lisa smiled.

“Since we are the only two sensible ones,” My mom nodded.

My phone started vibrating in my pocket, I pulled it out to see that it was Derek calling and immediately hit ‘Ignore.’ I was not ready to talk to him yet.

“I can’t wait to see Harry perform!” My mom clapped, “He was so sweet when I met him last time!”

“One Direction right?” Aaron said as he pulled out his phone, “Are they that good?” He looked up at my dad and smirked.

“Can you two just please promise to be nice? For us? Your amazing daughters?” I begged.

“Fine! Fine!” My dad held his hands up.

“Good, okay so we booked two presidential suites for each couple, and Madeline and I have our own.” I smiled.

“Wait, why didn’t we all just get a three bedroom villa?” My dad raised his eyebrows.

The thing was, the guys booked the room for us and our parents’ rooms at their hotel. While we paid for our parents suites, Harry and Niall paid for our room. It was a big argument the four of us had over Skype one night and after an half an hour, Madeline and I just gave up and let them have their way.

“You’re on vacation with your wives? Don’t you want the privacy?” Madeline asked, her palms facing up.

“We have enough alone times with our wives.” Aaron rolled his eyes which caused Lisa so playfully smack him in the arm.

“Hey!” She bit her bottom lip.

“No funny business in Singapore. Not while we are there, not ever.” My dad said with a commanding attitude.

“What on earth are you talking about?”  Madeline asked innocently which made all four of our parents roll their eyes.

March 7th 2015

Derek’s POV

I tried calling Y/N multiple times, but she wouldn’t answer and just go to voicemail. I didn’t get why she was ignoring me. I was meeting her parents tonight and wanted her to come. I don’t understand why she’s been ignoring me. So I just decided to text her.

  • Me: Are you ignoring me? Did I do something wrong?

I decided to give her one last call, this time she picked up.

“Y/N? Finally! I’m back in New York and wanted to know if you wanted to grab dinner with me and your parents tonight.” I sighed, I’ve missed her a lot.

“Uhh- no I’m okay I still need to finish packing.” Her voice was hesitant. I could tell, we might not be close as before, but I still knew her.

“Is something wrong? Did I do something wrong?” I raised my eyebrow as I was going through some paperwork for my clients.

She was quiet for a moment, “Do you not remember calling me the other night?”

What? Now I’m confused, “The one from last night? When you ignored me?”

“No- no last Friday, you called me at three in the morning drunk off your ass.”

Oh fuck. I don’t remember half that night!

“I called you? What the hell! I don’t even remember how I got home, all I know was that I went out to drink then the next day I woke up with the worst hangover of my life and Elsa was pissed.”

Wow, what the fuck? I was panicking. What did I say? Did I fucking tell her how I feel?

“Yeah…” She said slowly, “So… you don’t remember at all?”

“No! What did I say?” I completely stopped looking at my paper work and leaned back in my office chair rubbing my forehead.

“You said you missed me… among other things…” She trailed off.

“I did what? I said I missed you? What else?” My eyes were wide open.

Fucking damn it, Derek. Think! Think! What did you say?

“You just said a lot of stuff. You probably didn’t even mean half of what you said.” I heard her scrambling on her end.

“No, Y/N tell me exactly what I said, I know you remember.” I demanded.

“You said… that I make you feel things that you shouldn’t.”

OH FUCK ME. I deeply inhaled.

“Derek, I need to finish packing for Singapore, I’ll talk to you later, okay?” She mumbled.

“Alright, have fun! Have a good flight.”

“Thanks. Bye,” then she hung up.

What the FUCK did I say to her?!

I couldn’t remember for the life of me what I said to her. All I know was that Elsa was pissed that I went out and left her at my house alone after we had sex. It took that entire Friday AND Saturday for her to finally forgive me.

I don’t remember calling Y/N.

I scrolled through my phone history and there it was, I had made an out-going call to Y/N that night. The call lasted a little under 8 minutes.

“What the fuck did I say to her?” I leaned forward and placed both my elbows on the table as I dropped my head in my hands and rubbed my face in frustration.

March 8th 2015

“Hi Harry!” I answered the phone as I was halfway thought the airport that afternoon.

“Hi baby, I can’t wait to see you!” I could feel him smiling through the phone.

“Me either! We are heading to the airport now, so I’ll text you when we take off okay? We have to stop at Frankfurt to refuel, then head to Singapore International from there.”

“Yeah it’ll take you about 21 or 22 hours? I checked before I called you. I wanted to wish you a safe flight! Skype me when you’re in the air!”

“Will do! Love you!” I smiled.

“Love you more.” He said then hung up.

“’Love’ huh?” My mom smiled at me.

“Ssssh!” I waved her off.

The ladies had to take a different car to the airport. We had a lot of luggage, so we had to take a second car and our dad’s volunteered to sit with our belongings.

“So tell me a little bit about Niall!” Lisa turned around and grinned at Madeline and I. We were sitting in the third row of the van.

“He’s Irish… He’s really funny… He’s sweet… and silly… and cute…” Madeline trailed.

I shook my head as I saw my best friend blush, “He’s an excellent guitar player,” I added and Madeline nodded.

“He can cook pretty well too!” She showed her mom a picture of a dinner he had cooked for her the night he flew out to surprise her.

“Oh can he now?” Lisa was intrigued as she took the phone from Madeline’s hand.

“I mean, not like, you Mom, but he can cook pretty well.” Madeline explained.

“Well that’s always a good quality to have.” My mom nodded.

“Niall loves soccer, but since he’s from Ireland, they call it football.” Madeline also added, “Oh and he plays golf! Harry does too!”

“Really?!” Our moms asked at the same time as they looked at each other.

“That’s excellent! Your fathers are going to want to play with them!” My mom nodded.

“Yeah, maybe they’ll all bond and your fathers will like them.” Lisa added.

“I actually don’t know how good they are…” I looked at Madeline.

“Well, all I know is that Oliver beat both your fathers and they were very impressed, but I think that your boyfriends… they will need to let your fathers win, it’s different,” Lisa suggested.

“Oh! Why isn’t Oliver here? I thought you told me he was coming with?” My mom looked at me and I froze and shifted my eyes over to Madeline.

“Uh-well, he wanted to go to Florida instead, to visit his older brother and spend time with his nephew.” I bit my bottom lip.

“Oh that’s a shame! Maybe we’ll see him next time we go to New York,” Lisa turned towards the front.

That was partially the truth. After Oliver heard that Harry found out about him having feelings for me, he told Madeline that he didn’t want to go to Singapore and deal with that awkward tension, so instead he decided to go to Florida to see his brother, sister-in-law, and nephew, who he hadn’t even met yet since he was born when Oliver was at Columbia.

March 10th 2015

The flight from New York to Frankfurt was 7.5 hours; from Frankfurt to Singapore it was 12 hours. 

We reached Singapore early in the morning, 2 am to be exact. By the time we had reached the hotel, it was 3 am, we were all exhausted from being on a plane for a whole day plus the jet-lag was affecting us. We quickly checked-in and headed straight to our rooms. 

Around 10 am, Madeline and I heard loud banging on our door. We groaned as we both pushed each other to answer it. Neither of us wanted to get up.

“Maybe they’ll leave if we don’t answer.” Madeline pulled the comforter over her face.

“Yeah-“

“Madeline!!! Y/N!!! Wake up!” We’d recognize that Irish accent anywhere.

“That’s your boyfriend, you answer it.” I buried my face in my pillow.

“Ugh! Fine!” Madeline got up.

I listened as I knew Madeline was about to go off on him.

“NIALL! YOU LITTLE SHIT! I WAS SLEEPING!”

I bursted out into laughter, I couldn’t help myself.

“Well good morning to you too my lovely girlfriend!” I could picture him crossing his arms.

“Is Y/N still sleeping too?” I widened my eyes, I’d know that deep raspy voice anywhere.

I jumped out of bed and rushed into the bathroom to quickly brush my hair and teeth and wash my face.

I opened the door to see Harry, dressed in black pants, a thin white shirt made of cotton, which I could see all of his tattoos through, and a manila hat resting on his head. Madeline had crawled back in bed and Niall was pestering her to get ready.

“Well hi there,” Harry smiled as he stood up from the chair he was sitting on and walked over to me.

I rose up on my tiptoes to kiss him.

“If you guys are going to do that, get your own room!” Niall hollered.

“You’re just jealous because Madeline hasn’t kissed you yet,” Harry shot back at him.

Niall just huffed and crawled in bed next to her.

Harry pulled me out into the living room letting them have their privacy.

“How was your flight?” Harry pulled me onto his lap as he sat down on the couch.

“Too damn long, it was only two hours longer than going to Australia but it took so much more out of me.”

“Jet-lag will do that to you.” He kissed my forehead, “What do you want to do today?”

“Well I was thinking we could go to lunch together, just the two of us, then I want to see the other guys, I’ve missed them. I told my parents that we can all have dinner together tonight around 8:30.”

“Sounds good to me,” He gently pressed his lips against mine as I caressed his cheek with my hand, just as I was about to slip my tongue into his mouth, we heard loud knocks on the door.

“MADELINE! Y/N! WAKE UP!” It was Lisa’s voice.

I pulled away from Harry and we both looked at each other with wide-eyes.

There was more knocking, “WAKE UP AND OPEN THIS DOOR!” That was my mom’s voice and my jaw dropped.

I stood up as Madeline came out to the living room.

“FUCK!” She hissed as Niall joined her side.

“Are they hibernating in there?” We heard Lisa ask my mom.

“If we don’t freaking answer she’s going to call the manager to open the door!” I said.

Harry leaned against the couch calmly but we could all see that Niall was freaking out.

“Shit Harry! This is a bad first impression! I’m about to meet her mum and we are IN her HOTEL ROOM!” Niall’s hands were in his hair, he was shaking his head.

Harry tried to keep himself from laughing by covering his mouth.

“Okay Niall, calm down. As long as our dads aren’t there, we’re okay.” I approached the door and looked out of the peep-hole to see it was just our moms.

I gave them the thumbs up then Harry and Niall scrambled to sit down on the couch like a pair of idiots.

I shook my head as I opened up the door.

“Mom! Lisa!” I smiled.

“Took you long enough to answer!” Lisa said as she walked in second.

“Oh and now I know why,” My mom chuckled.

Lisa looked over my mom’s shoulder and saw the two boys sitting awkwardly on the couch.

“Harry! Good to see you again.” Harry stood up and hugged my mom and Niall awkwardly stood up as well.

“Lisa, this is Harry.” I smiled as I joined his side, “My boyfriend.”

“Mom, Y/M’S/F/N, this is Niall!” Madeline smiled.

“Hi! It’s a pleasure to meet you both,” Niall held out his hand to shake Lisa’s hand first.

“OH! I like his accent!” My mom chuckled, as she shook his hand.

“Well we were going to ask you girls to come join us on the beach, but we can see that you two are busy,” Lisa winked at the boys.

“Where’s dad?” Madeline and I asked at the same time and we both fist bumped each other. It was our thing whenever we spoke at the same time.

“Your father is still suffering from jet-lag so he’s asleep,” Lisa said as she brushed Madeline’s hair back with her hand.

“Your father is off on a business meeting, he promised me this was the only one then I would have his full attention.” My mom shrugged.

“Why don’t you ladies join us for lunch?” Harry suggested.

Niall quickly nodded, “Yes come have lunch with us!”

“No- no, we know you four want to catch up with each other, plus we’ll see you two at dinner tonight, be ready to be grilled by their fathers.” Lisa winked and headed out the door.

“But don’t worry, we won’t let them beat you up too bad,” My mom joked.

Madeline and I just facepalmed ourselves as the guys exchanged looked.

“See you four later! Have fun!” Our mom’s waved as they closed the door.

I quickly threw on a dress and put on my make-up and went to lunch with Harry.

We all agreed to meet up in a few hours with the other guys.

As we sat down at the hotel restaurant for lunch, we noticed a few people taking pictures of us, so I kept on my sunglasses.

“I’ve missed you,” Harry said from across the table as he looked at the menu.

“I’ve missed you too,” I looked up and smiled at him.

His eyes met mine, and I saw it darken, “I don’t even want to each lunch. I just want to eat you.”

My eyes grew wide and my jaw dropped.

“Harry Edward Styles!” I hissed.

“What? It’s the truth.” He cocked his eyebrow.

I wasn’t really hungry so I just ordered a bowl of fruits with Greek yogurt and Harry ordered the same.

While we were eating, Harry kept teasing me with the fruits, eating them with his fingers, slowly and seductively, turning me on.

But two could play the game, I quickly glanced around the restaurant and took the banana, that came with my bowl of fruit, in my mouth slowly, sticking out my tongue a little before I took a bite.

“Oh fuck this,” He growled and stood up quickly.

Harry threw a fifty down on the table and pulled me up and back into the hotel. I had to cover my mouth to keep myself from laughing.

He furiously clicked the elevators ‘up’ button and the door ‘dinged’ and slid open.

We stepped in the elevator alone, he hit the 9th floor and as soon as the doors closed, Harry grabbed me and pushed me against the wall, kissing me fiercely.

“I can’t believe you teased me like that.” He breathed into my mouth.

“You started it.” I bit the bottom of his lip.

When we heard the elevator ‘dinged’ and opened up to the 9th floor. He pulled me down the hall and towards my room, I quickly grabbed my room key and opened the door.

Harry slammed the door close, quickly picked me up and I wrapped my legs around his waist and kissed him passionately

He carried me into my room, threw me down on the bed and made love to me.

After two hours of amazing sex, we both laid in bed out of breath.

“Holy… shit.” I exhaled.

“That was the best…ever.” Harry smiled goofily as he turned his body towards me.

“Agreed,” I nodded as I closed my eyes trying to steady my breathing.

A few minutes later I got up and went into the bathroom to clean myself up, when I stepped back out into the room, I looked around to see that Madeline’s suitcase was gone.

“Madeline and Niall are staying in our room next door, I have to grab my stuff and bring it in here later.” Harry winked.

“You sly dogs! That’s why you two wanted to handle booking our rooms!” I laid back down on the bed.

“Maybe,” He shrugged.

I checked my phone to see that Louis and Zayn had blown it up, wondering where me and Harry were.

“Oh shit! We were supposed to meet the boys 10 minutes ago!” I shrieked as I grabbed my clothes.

“Oops.” Harry said innocently as he slowly got up and went into the bathroom.

I fixed my hair and make-up and quickly texted the guys that we will be right there.

Harry had tied his hair up in a bun when he walked out of the bathroom, half dressed.

“Harrry!!” I threw him his shirt, “I feel bad!”

“Its fine love, Zayn and Louis always take their sweet time anyways. It’s their turn to wait.” He kissed my forehead before he slipped his shirt over his head.

Five minutes later we found Niall, Madeline, Zayn, Louis and Liam all hanging out at the bar by the beach, that was a part of the hotel.

“Finally!” Louis said as he wrapped his arms around me.

“Hi Louis! I’ve missed you too!” I giggled.

Zayn pulled Louis and I apart before he picked me up and swung me around.

“Oh my god Zayn!” I laughed.

“What? I did it to Madeline, had to give you one too.” He smiled.

I lightly kissed his cheek then I went over to hug Liam who gave me a big bear hug.

We hung out with boys and caught up for a couple hours before Zayn, Louis and Liam went off to do their own thing and the rest of us went back upstairs to change and get ready before we had to meet our parents for dinner.

“Harry… I have to tell you something,” I said as I stepped out of the shower, letting Harry finish up conditioning his hair.

“What is it?” His voice muffled as I saw him rinse his hair.

I didn’t say anything, I just blow dried my hair and continued getting ready until he stepped out of the shower and dried himself.

“What babe?” He asked again.

“It’s about, umm,” I finished fixing my hair.

“Babe, just tell me already.” He kissed the top of head and looked in my eyes from the mirror.

He continued back out of the room and pulled out a new outfit from his suitcase, which he had grabbed while I was showering earlier.

Harry pulled on a pair of briefs and then black pants.

“It’s about Derek,” I muttered.

He stopped buttoning his pants and gave me a confused look, “What?”

I slipped on my dress and turned my back to him so he could help me.

“You were right about Derek…” I said as I felt his hands slowly zip up my dress.

“What do you mean?” He turned me around and looked at me in the eyes, I could tell he was concerned.

“Derek, he’s, he’s umm… I think he’s in love with…” I bit my lip, “Me.”

Harry’s face fell, “How do you know this?” He grabbed a black button up shirt and pulled it on.

“He drunk called me one night and told me,” I looked into his eyes.

“Are you fucking serious?” Harry stepped back.

“I honestly didn’t know!” I put my hand up to my cheeks.

“But I did and I TOLD YOU and you didn’t listen to me!” He walked into the living room and I followed him.

“I know you did, but I’m not the type to know or think someone has feelings for me unless they flat out say so.” I tried to defend myself.

I saw Harry grab his phone and wallet and walk towards the door.

“Wait- Harry, where are you going?” I tried to grab his arm.

“I need some air!” He hissed as he turned the door knob.

“But we have dinner with my parents in an hour!”

He didn’t answer, he just slammed the door.

Nadine’s POV

I was sitting with Elsa in my living room on our day off, just catching up, as I heard my phone ringing from my room and knew it was him calling.

“That’s Harry,” I said as I skipped into my room, I had a specific ringtone set for him, ‘Firestone.’

“How do you know it’s him calling?” Elsa shot me a quizzical look as she followed me into my room.

I held my finger up to my lips as I answered. 

“Hey Harry. What’s up?”

“Hey. Can you talk?” I could hear he was upset through the tone of his voice.

“Yeah of course, what’s up?” I sat down on  my bed.

“So I just fucking found out that Derek’s in love with Y/N,” He exhaled as I heard some chatter in the background on his end.

“What?!” My jaw dropped as I looked at Elsa.

She mouthed ‘WHAT?’ to me and I just shook my head, I tried to shoo her out of my room but she refused to leave.

“Yeah. Fucking stupid ridiculous right?” He continued to vent.

“How- how do you know?” I muttered afraid to look at Elsa.

“He apparently drunk called her or some stupid shit and admitted it to her.” Harry growled.

“Holy shit.” I covered my mouth.

“What do I do?” I could tell Harry was pacing.

“What do you mean? Did she do something with him?” I slowly looked up at Elsa, whose eyes were growing with fear by the minute.

“No-no! I just knew he was in love with her from the time I first met him and I told her, and she didn’t believe me.” He explained, still angry.

Elsa kept trying to tell me to put him on speaker but I refused too.

“What do you mean you knew?” I was really confused and even curious now. I never ever thought Derek would like Y/N. I felt bad because Elsa had just been telling me that Derek had been acting weird lately.

“He looks at her the way I look at her, the way a man looks at the woman he is in love with. I saw it clearly and she didn’t believe me and… now when she told me that he admitted to her when he was drunk, I just got so frustrated and left the room.”

“Wait, wait, wait, rewind. Left the hotel room? She’s with you in Singapore?” I had no idea she was going to be there, my jaw slightly hung open.

“Yeah, she came here for spring break.”

“Well Harry, she hasn’t technically done anything wrong. She told you about it, at least she was honest, right?” As much as it killed me to defend her, I didn’t want to say anything bad about her since he is one of my best friends.

“I know, I just am so frustrated, first Oliver and now Derek, like who the hell next?” He vented some more.

“Harry, it’s not a big deal. You know she’s in love with you.” Right then, I could tell by the look in her eyes that Elsa knew exactly what was happening.

“I know I know, I’ve heard it all… it’s just I don’t get why she didn’t believe me when I first told her, you know? But when he tells her, she all of a sudden believes it?” I heard him lower his voice, assuming he was in a public area.

“Well it’s just how some people are, they don’t ever think that people could be interested in them romantically unless the other person is vocal about it.” I carefully said I saw the hurt in Elsa’s eyes.

“Yeah- I just, damn, am I a bad guy for wanting to punch the guy?” He sighed.

“No, it’s understandable, I mean he has a… girlfriend…” I trailed off, seeing tears forming in Elsa’s eyes.

“Yeah! Exactly which I don’t fucking understand, how is he still in love with her if he has a girlfriend?” Harry raged again.

“Still? What do you mean still?” I was confused.

“I am pretty sure that he’s been in love with her ever since they were kids, it’s why I was so threatened by him because I thought they were both in love with each other when they were younger, but it turns out that she didn’t see him as anything but a big brother, it’s just him. Damn bloke. How is he going to still be with his girlfriend if he’s in love with someone else? That’s so fucked up!” I could tell that Harry was now alone since the background noise completely disappeared.

“Holy shit.” My eyes widened and my stomach dropped as I looked at my best friend who was still confused as ever.

“I just needed to rant, I know I’m being silly, I need to go apologize to her, I’m about to meet her parents.”

This time I felt my heart ache, “You are? Wow things are that serious huh?”

“Yeah, she’s the one for me Nadine… I just don’t know what to do when it comes to other guys.” He admitted

I felt like someone punched me in the face when I heard him say that.

“Well go on and apologize to her and be on your best behavior,” I wanted to get off the phone cause I felt tears starting to form.

“Will do, thanks for being here for me, I really appreciate it.”

“No problem, bye Harry.”

As I hung up I slowly inhaled and closed my eyes, wiping the tears from my face, getting ready to tell my best friend something that I knew was going to break her heart.

“What happened? Who likes Y/N?” Elsa looked me dead in the eyes.

I couldn’t even look at her, but I knew that she knew.

“Derek. Derek is in love with her isn’t he?” She sounded defeated as tears fell from her eyes.

“Yeah,” I slowly nodded.

“That fucking bastard!” She stomped her foot as she fought back from breaking down.

“Whoa Elsa!” I know she only cursed when she’s super pissed.

“What? I asked him if he was in love with her and he said he wasn’t! He accused me of being crazy!” She shouted; her accent grows thicker when she’s upset.

“When did you ask him this?” I threw my phone on my bed.

“Last Friday, when we were in L.A. then the bastard had the audacity to go out BY HIMSELF after I had passed out from the sex we had…”

“Whoa,” I did not need to hear that, I shook my head and closed my ears.

“No! Not only did he go out by himself, he got pissed drunk and comes home at 1 in the morning stumbling all over the place not knowing what the fuck was up or down. I was pissed the entire weekend because after I charged his phone, I saw that the last person he had called was her! She fucking knew he was in love with her and she kept seeing him!” I saw tears of anger falling from her eyes are she vented and paced around my room.

“No I think she just found out herself… Elsa, calm down!” I stood up and tried to hug her but she didn’t want me to touch her.

“I can’t calm down!” The tears were now streaming down her face.

“I’ve been with Derek for a year! I tried to make it work with him while he flew back and forth from L.A. to New York for his career. I even turned down job opportunities to be with him, and then he goes and falls in love with his childhood best friend the minute she waltzes back in his life?! FUCK HER!” She threw her hands in the air.

I bit my lip, I didn’t want to make it worse by telling Elsa what Harry told me about Derek being in love with her since they were kids.

Elsa took a deep breath then exhaled.

She looked at me, “Why aren’t you pissed?”

“What do you mean?” I gave her a confused look.

“Oh come on Nadine, I’m your best friend. I know you’re in love with Harry, you just don’t want to admit it out loud.” She crossed her arms.

I shook my head, “No.”

“Yes you do! I’ve always known, by the way you always talk about him! I just have been waiting for you to tell me but you never did so I figured you were just in denial or something.”

“I… I…” I never had said it out loud, even to myself, “Why would I be pissed though?”

“To see or I guess, hear the guy you’re in love with being frustrated or hurt or angered by his girlfriend…? Who my boyfriend is fucking in love with!” She spat out.

“I mean… I don’t like hearing him upset but I hardly ever think she means too, I mean she went to Australia and then Singapore to see him…”

“Fuck her.” She glared at me, “Stop defending her and start defending your own heart.”

“What?”

“Let’s go.” Elsa stood in front of me pissed as ever.

“Go where…?” A bar? It’s too early for that.

“To fucking Singapore.”

ROMANIA, Floroaica : An elderly couple sits on a bench in front of the fence of their home covered with election campaign poster in support of Romanian Prime Minister Victor Ponta in Floroaica village on November 11, 2014. Ponta won the first round of the presidential elections with 40.44 percent of the vote against 30.37 percent for the candidate of the right, Klaus Iohannis. Iohannis got 46 percent of the votes of the Romanian diaspora. The presidential elections in Romania - the second round to take place on November 16 - are regarded as crucial to the former Communist block country as fears of a takeover of justice by the political power in case of a victory of Ponta are alive.
