Henry POV Today is our wedding day. It’s been four years since I proposed to Abbey and she said yes. A lot has happened sine then. We have grown up a lot together, we have been enjoying life together while she finished university and we ended up moving to London, Abbey found an amazing job opportunity there and I dropped everything to follow her. Luckily the company I work for has a company in London and I was sent there. I honestly can’t believe how perfect our life is. I am extremely nervous to see her as I stand here at the altar. We are having a small ceremony as we didn’t want anything big. From my family only mum, my brother and their plus ones were invited. I made sure to leave the Payne behind and I don’t care for any of them, If they find out I got married is their problem. Since everything that happened none of them made the effort to try and contact me, and honestly I think it was for the best becaus
Abbey POV Henry graduated yesterday, and it was a memorable day, both our families together as if there was no bad blood between them. It was absolutely incredible. I can’t even believe that is happening. Roxy came along to the event, and later on, Richie appeared, and I could see they broken up. I feel bad for Richie. He was completely crazy about her, but Roxy played with his heart and Leo’s, and now she is alone. Leo found someone that didn’t want to hide him. Roxy left early, and I have to say I am extremely disappointed in her. She tried to talk to Richie, trying to get back with him, but he said no, he loved her too much for all the pain she put him through. I really don’t blame him. You probably think I am a hypocrite because I forgave Henry for everything that happened between us, but at the end of the day, our love is unique, and I have never loved anyone the way I love him, and I know he feels the same. It was a mistake, a one time mistake that he made, while Roxy
Henry POV Abbey is coming out of the hospital today and I am making sure that everything is ready for her to come home. Leo gave me the key to their house and allowed me to move in with them. I haven’t actually told Abbey yet, but my financial circumstances are a little different right now. I am not using my dad’s money and I am definitely not using his name to get away with things. I finish making the bed with fresh bedding and I look around proud of my achievement. Her room looks and smells clean, everything is tidy and I have her favourite things on hand. I even got a mini fridge to have in her room in case she wants a cold drink and to have some milk as I got a kettle to have here as well if she wants a cup of tea while I am at work. I have a part-time job at a publishing company, I just deliver mail, b ut hey, we need to start somewhere and I am going to prove myself and make my way up. After all I am a studying business and I already have some ideas tha
Abbey POV “Henry”, I let out as soon as Leo walks out of the door. My heart is beating fast, and I am extremely confused. I know I like Henry, and apparently I liked him more than I ever thought it was possible. Unfortunately I can’t remember anything. I take a deep breath as I see him walking slowly towards the bed where I am laying down. He looks so sexy that it is making my mouth water. “I don’t want you nowhere near that guy”, Henry says, and I shake my head. Even though I understand why he doesn’t want me near Harry, I have to ask him why he did it, why he made his own sun suffer so much, how could he make his son miserable? Does he only love himself? Doesn’t he care about anyone else? “Henry, please”, I say, and he shakes his head while he wraps his fingers around mine and takes my hand to his mouth. My stomach is full of butterflies, and I feel like a youn
Henry POV I open my eyes and I feel like I have slept like a baby, I can’t remember the last time I had a good night sleep like this. I take a deep breath and I stretch my arms above my head and I can hear my bedroom door opening. “How did you sleep?”, mum asks walking in with a tray and it smells so good that makes my mouth get full of saliva. “Like a baby, thanks for last night mum”, I say as she places the tray on my legs after I sit up on the bed. Mum kisses the top of my head and assures me that that’s what mum’s do. If it is or not I am extremely grateful that she spent the night here giving me cuddles and strength to move on with my life and forget the hell my dad put me and Abbey through. “Come on, have something to eat and then have a shower, you have a girlfriend to go visit”, mum says as she walks out of the room. I look at the tray and smile. She made me a bacon sandwich with brown sauce, orange juice and coffee. She really does know me. A
Abbey POV "Mum, please stop crying. I am fine", I let out, but she kept caressing my cheeks and looking at me as if she would never be able to look at me again. "Do you need anything", Dad asks kissing the top of my head as soon as he walks back into the room. I look at the door, but Henry doesn't follow him. "Where's Henry?" I ask, and dad looks back at the closed door. "He was gonna make some phone calls, and then he will be here", Dad replies, and I look at the door. I don't know why I have this horrible feeling he shouldn't be outside. He needs to be next to me. I know we have only just started dating, and we don\t really know each other, but I can't think straight being away from him. Mum and dad stand next to me when I ask them again what happened, but they keep giving me vague answers, as in I was in a car crash. I try and remember why I would've been in a car, but I really can't, making me stressed. "Thank god
Henry POV “Hey”, he says and I am not willing to talk. I pull him into the room and lock the door behind me. “Henry, mate, so glad to see you’re okay”, Alex let out and I can’t help but punch him in his face. Alex falls back on his ass and his nose starts blurting out blood straight away. “Hey, get up”, I say and he looks at me while he is holding his nose with both of his hands. “You broke my nose”, he spits out “You’re lucky if that’s the only thing I am breaking today”, I let out while I pull him up by his t-shirt. I shove him against the wall and his eyes are wide up. “Fight me you coward”, I shout in his face. “I am not fighting you”, Alex says trying to walk past me but I punch him on his side straight into his ribs making him bend over and fall on his knees on the floor. “Fuck you”, I let out. “Henry, mate”, Alex says as he coughs. “I am not your mate, I am your worst nightmare”, I say lif
Henry POV “Oh, thank fuck, you’re awake”, I let out as soon as Abbey’s eyes open. I have never been so happy to look into those beautiful eyes. “What happened?”, She whispers, and I can’t help but let a tear escape my eyes. It’s not my place to explain to Abbey what happened, and I feel guilty as it is for her having to go through what she did with my dad, and I wasn’t there to protect her. I tell her I will go get the nurse and her parents, and she doesn’t protest about it. As they all chat, I keep my distance, but I keep my eyes on Abbey. I don’t think I will ever be able to get away from her, and I want to be next to her for the rest of my life. These last couple of days have been hell for me. Being awake and not being able to do anything to bring her back to me was slowly driving me insane. The doctor asks us to leave, and I don’t want to, but Devin gives me a small nod, and I follow him out. He has been through hell, and you can see on his face.
