"What are you talking about?"Elena asked in disbelief. Shaking her head at Gail's serious nod, she let out a laugh. "We are talking about one of the most well known womaniser and playboy in LA. He hasn't changed in the four months. It's all over the news. So I don't think he'll be changing now."

"How do you know about the women? You've never cared about him and you didn't know that Harry is Harry until today." Gail's suspicious eyes made her squirm. But she had a perfectly good reason.

"The girls love to talk about him. Even if I don't want to listen, it seems that I've absorbed all that information. So why are you still here anyway?" She was hoping to change the topic as she didn't want to blurt out that her ears had always perked up whenever anyone talked about Harry. As she had always prided herself on her levelheadedness, it felt like a guilty pleasure. The strangest thing was the fact that she had never seen him before. She just couldn't explain her fascination with him.

"I told you. Harry's out buying dinner. He doesn't want you to be alone." Gail dropped to the couch and rested her head on Elena's shoulder. Elena let her even though she was tempted to shove her aside.

"And you listened to him? The woman who can argue about air and win? And weren't you leaving? You were going to walk out with Oliver and Jeremy. I remember you bringing your purse along."

"Harry looked so concerned that I found myself agreeing before I even knew what was happening. His sharp jawline and intense eyes were no help either. Seriously, "Gail said as she sat up and turned to her, "how do you stand his eyes? They're so forceful and commanding. I have a hard time not calling him Mr Reynolds as it is."

"His... eyes?" She was taken aback by the sudden question. "They're hot."

"But don't you feel intimidated? That's the one thing the media always report. They love his eyes. So do a lot of women. Even me. But I realise it's more of liking the idea. You know what I'm talking about?"

"Um, no?" Elena was confused. Gail was babbling. She never babbles. She's the most put together woman she had ever known. "What are you talking about?"

"You know. It feels like I'm being sucked into his eyes. Like I'm falling under his spell." Elena was surprised at the strength of her anger and the possessiveness that filled her. She had never been territorial about a guy. Hoping her shock wasn't showing, she made herself look blankly at Gail. She cocked her head to the side. "You've never experienced this? How do you feel when you are with him? Tell me your first impression."

"Well, I have always been able to be myself with him. I don't feel the need to conform to Society's standards of women. Maybe it's because I heard him first before I set eyes on him. He was arguing on the phone and whatever he was talking about, I can relate to. Then when I saw him, he was so shocked that he didn't have the opportunity to intimidate me. What?"she asked awkwardly when Gail let out an "Aww".

"That's so sweet, "Gail said with a wide smile.

"Okay. Thanks?" Leaning back when Gail came up to her face, she held up her hand. "Distance, sister. What's wrong with you?"

"You've never talked about him before. Whenever I asked about him, you've always been close to crying and you know how I feel about crying, "she said, returning to her seat. Elena let out a silent breath of relief as she could return to her normal posture. She'd forgotten how intense Gail could be. Reminded of her friend's discomfort with crying, sh

've heard her swear. Kudos to you for getting that out of her."

"I don't care about that. I want to know what set her off." The flames of his anger flared bigger when she sent him a look of disbelief and he slammed his hand on the table. It gratified him when her look changed to wariness. "Tell. Me."

"She explained it. You're being too full of yourself. Telling her to do this and that. She hates that. And she's stubborn. Don't let her quiet fool you. She can be like the most ornery, stubborn mule. If she doesn't want to do it, she won't."

"You're not helpful." He was scrambling to rectify this situation and Gail's unhelpfulness was further frustrating him. "Leave."

"Excuse me." Hearing Elena's voice and hoping she was willing to listen to reason, he turned to her. His hopes were dashed when he was greeted with her glare. "Did you just tell my best friend to leave? Well, you can take that shit attitude and leave. Get out!"

"Elena, Els, come on. Listen to me-"

"No. You are unwelcome here." Realising she was not going to listen, he hardened his expression.

"I'm not going anywhere."

"Then I'm going to cry."

Shocked at the panic that threatened to overwhelm him, Harry forced a stoic face. He even allowed his lips to lift in a smirk.

"Why would that make me leave- No. What? Don't- Stop."

Seeing the tears rolling down her cheeks, he immediately went to her side. Feeling helpless, he tried to dry her cheeks but she turned away and batted away his hands.

"Leave, "she said, her watery eyes meeting his. Knowing she had won this battle, he gritted his teeth and left. But not before leaving his name card with his personal mobile with her.

Then, as he got into his car, he called the only person who could help him.

"Hello?"

Ignoring the groggy voice, he asked, "I want to speak to April."
