Catch Me if You Can Chapter 32 I couldn't help but hold in
YouCan Chapter 32
I couldn't help but hold in my breath as I looked in his
gorgeous sea green eyes.
A knot began to tighten in my throat, as I realized how much I
I waited and waited for his gaze to connect to mine, but I was
devasted when they never did.
I sucked in a deep breath, gnawing on my lower lip.
Why wasn't he acknowledging my existence?
Had he forgotton about me, and moved on to some beautiful tanned
model in Florida?
"Harry! Come join the party!" Gerald grinned, handing
him a can of beer.
I watched emotionlessly, as Harry popped open the can, chugging
down the beer.
I stood alone like an absolute idiot, as Harry brushed by me,
without even taking a short glance at me.
I frowned, as I turned around, just to see him walking away
further towards the bonfire.
My eyes began to prickle with tears, as I clenched my fists
Harry had forgotten about me.
To avoid creating a scene, and killing the mood of the party, I
spun on my heel.
My sandals slid against the sand, as I began to sprint away from
The further I ran, the smaller the blazing fire appeared to
My vision was blurry, as I dug my nails into my skin.
How pathetic was I to hold on to Harry, while he forgot about
I didn't even run further than a block, when I heard
footsteps catching up with me.
I turned around, as my hair whipped in my face.
I watched, as Harry jogged towards me.
I gulped, as my heart began to beat faster.
"Excuse me, miss." he panted.
I blinked back a tear, as I croaked out, "Yes?"
Harry reached in his pocket, as I held in my breath.
He took out a necklace, the one that I was wearing tonight.
"You dropped your necklace." he smiled gently, dropping
the silver necklace in my palm.
My heart dropped to the bottom of my gut, as I clutched onto the
"T-thanks." I stuttered out, staring at Harry with
Harry gave me another award winning smile, as he ran a hand
through his mop of brown hair.
"I should go back to the party now. Do you want to
come?" he asked.
I swallowed. Harry really didn't recognize me there
I took in a deep breath, almost too mesmerized by his matured
looks to speak.
His muscles were a bit toner, as his face became much more manly
I shook my head, as I backed up from Harry. "No
I watched as a worried frown appeared on Harry's face.
Harry licked his lips, before biting down on one.
"Um, would you happen to know someone named Colby around
here?" his husky voice spoke.
I felt my eyes slightly widening.
I was glad that he was taking the time to look for me, but I was
disappointed that he hadn't recognize me, after everything we
had been through.
The moment I saw Harry, I recognized him right away.
But, I guess he never liked me enough to do the same for me.
I sighed, as I shook my head.
"No, I don't know anyone named Colby." I
Harry shrugged, before giving me a small smile.
"Thanks, anyway. I'll see you sometime."
I nodded, as I watched him turn around and walk back towards the
party. Gerald's Point of View:
I took a sip of beer from my red cup, as Harry jogged back up on
"Hey man, where were you?" I asked.
Harry grabbed a cup off the table, taking a sip himself.
"I was just returning some necklace a girl
I wiggled my eyebrows jokingly. "Really? Who, was she
Harry punched my shoulder playfully. "I guess she was. I
didn't catch her name, though."
I frowned. "What was she wearing?"
Harry shrugged. "Some white dress?"
My eyes began to widen, as my eyes roamed around the party.
Colby was wearing a white dress... and as of now, Colby was no
where in sight.
I groaned, narrowing my eyes at an oblivious Harry.
I slapped my forehead.
Harry, you're so stupid.
