Harrys point of view;

*10 years ago*      

When Lily told me she wanted me to meet her best friend I could already feel the nervous building up inside of me. I really wanted to make a good impression, because I knew that her opinion would mean the world to Lily and Lily meant the world to me.

‘Daph! Over here!’ Lily screamed as this scared looking girl walked towards us. Lily wrapped her arm around mine and whispered in my ear… ‘It’s okay, she is bound to love you’ trying to soothe my nerves.   

Daphni stood in front of us nervously shifting her body, she kept looking me up and down and I already felt like I had no chance of gaining her approval. She also was quite beautiful, in an odd looking way. Something about her really fascinated me and I couldn’t help but stare at her.

‘Daph, this is Harry’ Lily smiled as she placed one hand on my chest to soothe my racing heart.

‘Hey, so you’re the famous Daphni’ I laughed trying to sound relaxed as I flung my arm around Lily’s shoulder waiting for her reply. Lily kissed me on the cheek and giggled.

‘And you’re the famous Harry…’ she spoke sarcastically before mumbling something under her breath. She seemed fairly confident and her beauty still amazed me.

Lily leaned over and lightly punched Daphni in the stomach. ‘Daph, shoosh’ she blushed and then quickly ran off to the bathroom.

Intrigued by Lilys sudden embarrassment I decided to try and figure out exactly what Daphni had said before Lily punched her.

‘what did you say?’ I smirked trying to seem like I didn’t particularly care.

‘Lily likes to call you different names, but im not allowed to say…’ I saw her body shift as she replied, refusing to look up at me. I couldn’t help but grin, she somehow made me feel relaxed. I was glad that I felt so comfortable with her, it would make Lily happy.

‘oh come on, don’t withhold valuable information’ I playfully nudged her and she just nudged me back, laughing. It sort of felt like we have known each other forever, old friends just catching up.

I think she started to feel embarrassed because she kept looking down at the ground before she spoke again. ‘I really can’t’ she whispered looking up at me and instantly smiling. She really had a beautiful smile.

We were actually staring at each other quite intensely when suddenly a worried look came across her face… ‘um.. I have to go’ she rushed through the crowd of people and I stood there watching her for a moment until my feet started moving and I was chasing after her.

I finally reached her when she stopped in the middle of the foot path outside, she was on the phone when I approached her but she quickly hung up when I spoke ‘where are you going?’  ‘I think I should leave…’ she started searching through her bag, refusing to look up at me. I stood there silently waiting for her to say something.

Finally I decided to break the ice…

 ‘don’t go’ I lifted up her chin so she would look at me. She stared pretty intensely and I got lost in her beautiful brown eyes.

‘I barely even know you’ I could hear the panic in her voice as she removed my hand from her face. Feeling a little disappointed i moved closer towards her with my hands in my pockets and whispering…

‘but doesn’t it feel like you do? I’ve never had so much fun in my life’

Something about her wheeled me closer towards her and she wasn’t moving away. ‘yeah me neither, but that still doesn’t change the fact that I don’t know you…’ she sighed.

We were now so close I could feel her gentle breath on my neck, I could smell her rose like scent and I just wanted to reach out and stroke her red cheeks.  ‘DAPHNI!’ Lily screamed from the end of the street and I clenched my fists together. Hearing Lily’s voice got me so frustrated I stepped away from Daphni and rolled me eyes in annoyance.

‘what are you guys doing outside?’ Lily asked when she finally approached us. She was looking at us in an amusing away before she rushed me back off to ‘join the party’.

I handed her a grumbled up piece of paper that had my number on it. I had to speak to Daphni again because I just knew we were going to be close. ‘TEXT ME!’ I shouted out to her and she nodded.

 ‘what, do you just keep this number in your pocket just in case some babe wants your number? What about Lily? Xo’ she messaged me instantly. I just chuckled at the message, she is looking out for her friend and it’s adorable.

‘no, it’s the piece of paper I was supposed to give Lily weeks ago but she sort of took my phone and saved her number herself, she’s a very determined girl’  I replied.

‘why am I even texting you?’ she asked.

‘because I thought it would be nice to chat, we should meet up, are you still here?’ I replied intrigued.

‘yes, im waiting outside for my mum to get me’

‘well Lily is pre-occupied at the moment, so im coming out’ I texted her before rushing outside. As soon as I stepped outside the crowded house I saw her sitting on the footpath with her phone in her hand.

‘wheres your mum?’ I asked hovering over her.

‘she said she will be late’ she said through clicking teeth, I took a seat next to her and watched her as she shivered.

‘your cold, here’ I removed my jacket immediately and placed it around her shivering body.

‘thanks’ she smiled up at me. ‘so whats the go with you and Lily?’ she asked hesitantly.

‘shes a sweet girl, and I really like her’ I nudged her gently. ‘why else do you think im being so kind to you?’ I spoke sarcastically.

‘oh…’ I could hear the disappointment in her voice and that pleased me.

‘im kidding… I like Lily but that’s not the reason im spending time with you, you fascinate me…’ I looked down nervously playing with my thumbs.

‘I think we are going to be great friends’ I took the jacket off her back as her mums car pulled up in front of us.

‘yeah, I don’t think so Harry’ she laughed while hoping into her mums car smiling. I waited until her mums car drove off before I rejoined the party.

‘wheres Daphni?’ Lily asked when I made it back inside.

‘I don’t know, ring her’ I lied to avoid suspicion. I watched as Lily ran off to ring her, only thinking about Daphni and how close I know we will become.
