It Takes Patience
Chapter 12: Awe, Anger, and Envy
I got myself together and ran out into the hallway. When I saw Harry at the elevator he was standing there waiting patiently for it to arrive like nothing happened. What is he doing to me? I walked over and stood next to him and shot him a death glare. As the doors opened and people exited I went to stand on one side of the elevator and thankfully, he stood on the other. Harry pressed the button for the first floor and the doors closed.
“What the hell was that?” I whisper shouted at him. I wanted to yell but my voice refused to go any louder. Harry looked at me confused and then replied.
“Sometimes the elevator makes weird noises, but I highly doubt we’ll get stu-” I cut him off.
“Not the damn elevator Harry! You know what I’m talking about” I hissed at him.
“Oh, back in my room? You mean when our faces pressed together? That’s called a kiss...slow coach.” He replied clearly entertained by the situation. How can he be so calm and nonchalant about it? I was pissed!
“Ugh, I know what it is and you know what I mean! I’m asking you why would you do that-”
“Whoa there glasses! You kissed me, not the other way arou-” I cut him off again how dare he try to put this on me!
“Don’t you dare say it was me!” I snapped and he plastered a stupid grin on his face showing those dimples that give me chills, but that’s beside the point right now I’m pissed.
“I am an intern and that means I’m working here for the summer! I worked hard to get here and you are not going to screw this up for me! That can’t ever happen again!” I shouted as his hand came up to his mouth pinching his bottom lip (that I wanted to nibble at) with his thumb and pointer finger. He rolled his eyes and let go of his lip to respond to me as we reached the ground level.
“Calm down glasses. Let’s just agree to disagree and change the subject. What school do you study at?” he asked me as we walked down another hallway making a right at the end of it and going through yet another set of double doors. This place is huge. I’m sure I would get lost if I didn’t have a guide at all times. Wait, what did he mean by agree to disagree?! He definitely kissed me! We ended up in the commons room and sat down on one of the couches.
“I study at UCLA.” I replied and saw Harry and a pharmacy's nurse exchanging glances. She licked her lips at him and he grinned at her with seduction resting clearly on his pink lips and in his eyes which were now clearly a shade darker. A twinge of jealously went through me. Was he really flirting with her after he had just kissed me? With a nurse at that! But honestly, I shouldn't react this way; we’re not anywhere near together. It's just an innocent crush. He’s a patient for goodness sake.
“She wants to shag.” Harry sighed and bit his lip and then looked away from the nurse.
“What?” I asked not sure if I had heard him correctly.
“Sorry, I forget that you’re not British. Umm... How can I say this?... Oh!,” Harry cleared his throat,“she totally wants to fuck!” He replied in a valley girl American accent. I rolled my eyes at him and chuckled, not wanting to show how jealous I really was.
“Seriously H?! With a nurse?” I said, a little too high pitched. He looked down at me grinned and wiggled his eye brows up and down.
“You’re gonna get put in the reflection room again or worse and get her fired” I warned. Harry sneered then looked at me through squinted eyelids.
“Are you some kind of prude? You’re gonna tattle aren't you?!” He joked, but somehow I feel as if he were seriously looking for an answer.
“No, I’m not. I just don’t think it’s smart on your behalf or appropriate on hers. I thought there was a policy here against sexual acts anyway? Especially between a patient and an employee who should know better! Isn't that why you got in trouble in the first place?” I said and I felt heat rising in my cheeks. It’s awkward talking about sex with someone I don’t know that well.
“Yeah there is a policy of some sort, but sneaky fucks are so good. The idea of being caught makes it...mm.” He said trailing off and then staring into space as if he were reminiscing about a crude affair. I visibly tensed and he noticed.
“Oh, sorry, you've got that uncomfortable turtle look going...Are you a virgin?” He asked me. I felt my eyes shoot open two times their normal size and got even more flustered.
“That’s none of your business!” I replied. Harry put a knowing smile on his face.
“Right, I’ll take that as a yes then. You know it’s nothing to be embarrassed about we’re adults here and I'm sure we've all had our fair share of-”
“I’m not embarrassed it’s just not your business if I am or if I’m not” I said cutting him off again. He grinned and turned his head away as I looked at my watch. It read 8:30 p.m. Where did the time go? I gathered my things to leave and told Harry I would be there at 8 a.m. tomorrow and to stay away from the nurse.
When I got home, I invited Laurie up to my place and called Channel again to tell them all about today’s events.
