You quietly walked downstairs, your suitcase trailing down the stairs behind you. You wiped your eyes with your free hand, already feeling your mascara begin to run down your cheeks. You see Harry’s head in his hands, his elbows resting on his knees, sitting on the couch. When he hears you come down the stairs, he jumps up. You take in his watery, red eyes. He looked so fragile and… broken. "Please Y/N. Let me explain." Tears begin to form in your eyes once again. His desperate pleas for you to just listen, for the thousandth time that night, his voice cracking at the end of each one, was tearing you apart each and every time. "No, Harry. There’s nothing you can explain. You made me think that you actually loved me. I was still learning to love, and you let me down Harry! You didn’t love me at all. You were going behind my back with someone else. This whole relationship was over my head. I know nothing at all about this. I should’ve known not to trust someone like you.” Your voice began to tremble, as you allowed the tears to freely stream down your cheeks. His lip began to tremble, as he watched you stand there, completely broken. He knew what he was doing wasn’t right. But he wasn’t thinking. And now that you were actually walking out on him, everything was crystal clear. He was 100 percent sure that he loved you, nobody else. But how could you ever trust him after he did something like that? "I know I made a mistake. But everything is so clear to me now. Y/N, I love you, and only you. Nobody else. I only want you. I know I did something stupid. I wasn’t thinking. But you can’t leave me. I need you." You stood there, contemplating on what to do. Your brain seemed to be telling you to stay, but your heart was telling you to leave. Just then, his phone buzzed on the table next to you. You looked down and saw her name flash across the screen. Your eyes began to water once again, and you looked up at him. His eyes were glued down to his phone screen, the only audible noise in the room being his phone buzzing against the glass table. You realized that you needed to follow your heart. So, you put on a strong face, and swallowed your pride. "Harry, you were the one I loved. But you let me down. So now, I’m saying goodbye." You took one last look around your small apartment that had seemed completely normal earlier today. "Y/N, please." it almost sounded like he wasn’t taking you completely serious, but you could almost hear a pleading tone in his voice. You made your way to the door, taking one last glance back at Harry, tears now running down his cheeks, his plump pink lips slightly parted, as he finally realized that you’re actually leaving him. You tried your hardest to stay strong. You walked out into the pouring rain, draping your hoodie over your head before fishing your keys out of the pocket. You unlocked your car, and put your suitcase in the trunk, before climbing into the drivers seat. You hear the front door slam shut, and glance out the window to find Harry standing still on his front porch, locking his eyes with yours through your car window. His tears were mixing with the teardrops falling from the dark, cloudy night sky above. You weren’t coming back. Ever. You were swallowing your pride, and leaving. You inserted your keys into the ignition, before starting the car. You glanced at him one last time, finally letting your tears freely fall. You backed out of the driveway, now sobbing loudly in the front seat of your car. You sped away, not daring to look into your rearview mirror and see Harry standing there all alone, watching you disappear from his life forever.
