“I don’t like him.” Jared groaned as we got in the car. I couldn’t believe what Harry had just done. He might have been able to make Taylor believe that it was an accident but I could see the look in his eyes, Harry was thriving off pissing Jared off and he had not only succeeded, but Jared had clicked on to what he was doing, “What a fucking prick.” He added under his breath.
“He’s not usually like that.” I said quietly reaching out and squeezing Jared’s knee. He looked over at me and sighed, taking one hand from the steering wheel and placing it over my own.
“I don’t know Selena, he just seemed off all night, and he called me the wrong name on purpose… who even bloody does that?” he groaned in frustration again. I was torn. I knew Harry had been a nob, but I also knew the Harry that had been protecting me in school from the wrath of so many. Jared looked over at me and his face softened, “I’m sorry, I know he’s your friend, he was probably just having a bad night…” I instantly found myself questioning how I had been lucky enough to find someone who was so understanding.
“I think he’s just trying to make sure you’re not going to hurt me…” I said, trying to convince myself that was what was wrong, “He’s had to deal with a lot for my sake over the last two weeks with Kendall and stuff…“
“You were meant to be telling me about that when we got in the car, what happened?” Jared asked gently. While I retold the story of the last two weeks, Jared drove home and pulled up, turned the engine off and walked me inside, up to my bedroom and sat on my bed with me, listening quietly without interrupting. When I had finished, Jared’s face looked empty without the smile that I was so used to seeing, instead he looked as though hearing the story had actually caused him physical pain. It hurt me to see his face like that, so I turned my face away and looked at my lap. He immediately reached out and like I weighed nothing pulled me onto his lap, so that his arms were cradling me. As I lay my head on his chest, he buried his face in my hair and spoke in a voice barely louder than a whisper.
“From now on, anyone who so much as looks at you the wrong way will have me to deal with.” It was such a simple sentiment, but it meant so much coming from him.
We sat in comfortable silence until I fell asleep feeling safe and warm in his arms. When I woke up in the morning he had tucked me into bed when he left and had left a note saying he’d call later. I had never been so happy.
