Something to Believe

25.

“Look who made the headlines again.” Natalie said, setting the paper down in front of Cara.
Cara sighed.

Prince Harry and Caroline Hunt’s Royal Breakup

Prince Harry and Caroline Hunt had been dating exclusively for nearly nine months when they unexpectedly broke up last week after the wedding of Princess Beatrice. Many speculate the breakup had to do with Chelsy Davy, who was present at the wedding. The morning after the wedding, Caroline was seen leaving the hotel, chased by Prince Harry. Collin Kerwin, a close friend of the couple, pushed the prince off of Miss Hunt and escorted her back to their home in Rochley. Miss Hunt has been living there and will reportedly move back into her childhood home temporarily when Prince Harry returns to Rochley. It is unaware who initiated the breakup; however, the prince has been seen with Chelsy Davy over the week.


Cara ripped the paper up and threw it to the ground.

“He comes home tomorrow.” Natalie said.

“To collect his things. He won’t live here. Not while I do.” Cara quivered. “Besides, Collin already told him to leave.”

Natalie sighed. There was no winning with her.

Later that day, Cara went home to her dad’s house. It felt so quiet there. Felicity and Alex were staying with their mum’s sister in Italy for a couple weeks. Cara would stay a couple nights until Harry was packed and left.

“Cara, can we talk?” her dad said.

She walked into his office. She still wasn’t used to seeing him in a wheelchair.

“I’m sorry about Harry.” He said.

Cara wiped away a tear. “Can we not talk about it?”

He nodded. “I want you to stay in school.” He said simply. “You have a year or so left until you graduate and I’d like you to.”

“But don’t I need to work?” she asked.

He smiled. “I found someone to help Arthur man the business for me until you can…or until Alex can. Possibly, he could become a part of the company.”

Collin coughed from the corner. “As long as we can make it Kerwin-Hunt Corporation.”

Cara laughed and hugged Collin. “You’re going to be a CEO now.”

Collin smiled. “Joint with you. We’re business partners now.”

Her father smiled. “Now, I’ll be off to bed. I’m awfully tired. Goodnight.” He said, wheeling away.

“Say, how about we grab Nat and Roger and go out for drinks like old times?” he asked.

Cara smiled. “I’d like that.”

They went back to the house. Cara opened the door and dropped her purse on the table. “Nat, Rog, get ready to party.” She screamed with abandon.

Suddenly, a red haired man walked down the stairs with a box. He stared at her, and she stared at him.

“You’re not supposed to be here.” Said Collin, who had appeared behind her.

“I didn’t know you were still here. Nat and Roger let me in.” Harry said. “That’s the last box.”

“Good.” Collin sneered. He put his arms around Cara’s shoulders. “You should probably get
Nat.”

“She’s in her room.” Harry said.

“Don’t talk to her.” Collin said angrily.

Cara walked away. Harry stared at Collin sadly. “We used to be best mates.”

“You promised me you weren’t using her. You lied to me. I’ve saved your arse all these times and you still can’t promise me one thing. I’m ashamed.” Collin said.

Harry looked down. “You’re still my best mate, no matter what.”

Collin looked away. “I don’t know if I can trust you.”

“Collin…” Harry started, pained.

“Every time I ask you to promise me something, you break it. She’s like my sister. I trusted you with her, and you broke it. I’m sorry Harry.” Collin said.

Collin saw Cara come out. “Nat and Roger will be out in a bit. Can I talk to Harry alone?” she asked quietly.

“Are you sure?” Collin asked. When Cara nodded, he left for his room.

“I’m sorry.” Harry said. “I was drunk. I didn’t know what I was saying.”

“You knew, Harry. I know you knew.” Cara said quietly.

He approached her and brushed a lock of hair out of her eyes. She grabbed his wrist and pulled it away. “Please, don’t.” she said, pained.

“Why?” he asked softly.

“You know why.” She said.

“You love me.” Harry said. “You promised me you always would.”

“And you promised me you loved me too. I guess it wasn’t true.” She said.

“Cara, that’s not true; I still love you. I want to be with you.”

Cara looked away. “Chelsy wants you. She wants to marry you. Wasn’t that your dream from the start?”

Harry was silent; Cara knew the answer.

“I think you should leave.”
