Picture Perfect

It all started with a job. Chloe Miller had a job. As a photographer. In London. For the hit t.v. show XFactor. She never new that the five boys she became best friends with would end up being the most popular boy band in the world. She never knew that they would would break their promise either. Or her heart.


13. Much Better

Fifteen minutes later I found myself in Zayn's arms- again.

"I'm so sorry Chloe," he whispered as he pulled me closer to him and hugged me around my waist. "I never meant to hurt you. There was just so much going on and... I dont know. There's no excuse."

"Shh, Zayn it's alright. Let's just forget about ok," I whispered back. Then I pulled away from him but left my hands on his shoulders. "Let's start over." 

He smiled and then nodded. Louis, Liam and Niall stood watching the whole thing next to us. Demi had went off to find her acts. 

"Now, where's Harry?" I asked. Louis pointed towards the doors to show that he was outside. 

"Want us to come with you babe?" Louis asked. I shook my head and then went outside.

Harry was sitting on the curb right in front of the theatre. The crowd that had formed when I was almost killed before had thinned out and now Harry was left just chatting to some fans. When I walked over to them all the girls looked at me and started whispering to each other. Then a tall girl with blonde hair piped up. 

"Hey Harry, isnt that the girl you went out with back when you were on the X Factor?" She said, eyeing me suspiciously.

Harry didnt realize me standing behind him so at first he was confused. The girl pointed to me and he whipped around.

"Wh- Chloe? What are you doing here?" he said standing up and facing me. He had grown so much taller.

"Um, Harry can I speak to you for a minute?" I asked. He stared at me waiting for me to continue. The girls looked at me eagerly. "Alone," I added.

Harry said goodbye to the girls and we went for a walk around the theatre.

We walked silently for a few minutes and then I said, "Harry, I'm sorry." 

He glanced over at me then continued to stare at his feet. I waited for him to say something but he remained silent.

"What I did to you was wrong," I continued. "Dont think anything was your fault because it wasnt. You're an amazing friend and you were a great boyfriend it's just that the feelings weren't... mutual."

"You mean you never liked me at all? It was all just a lie, our whole relationship for nothing?" Harry spoke up finally. "Were you just using me to make Zayn jealous?" 

"No, no you've got it all wrong Harry. I liked you a lot, just not as much as you liked me. You helped me through everything. I was mad at Zayn because I was really starting to like him and then he really hurt me. I was trying to get over him but i didnt realize that I was doing it by being with you otherwise I wouldnt have. And I definitely didnt mean to hurt you," I explained. It went silent again and we kept walking. 

"Harry, you couldnt possibly think our relationship was gonna last anyway... I mean with your career and all. And when we kissed, there was nothing there. No sparks, no amazing feeling- just contact between two people. I know you liked me but I wasnt "the one". You'll find someone else, I know it," I finished.

I could tell that Harry was thinking about what I had just said. Then he stopped walking and looked me in the eyes and really talked to me for the first time.

"You're right Chloe," he said. "I did really like you and you hurt me. That's why I knew I had to break up with you and make things right with Zayn. I asked Zayn how much he liked you and he stood there for at least ten minutes telling me how much he did and why. When he was finished I realized that compared to him, I didnt like you at all. I got over you but Zayn never really did. Things got better between all the boys and I and we tried to move on, never thinking we would see you again. We thought that if any one of us stayed in contact with you, it just wouldnt be good. It killed all of us because you had become such a close friend. And we're sorry for that." Harry finished his long speech with a smile. 

I nodded my head and smiled back at him. "So can we start all this over again and just be friends like we used to be?" I asked.

"Of course," Harry replied. He winked at me and then we hugged each other.

This was all easier than I thought it would be. I wasnt expecting the boys to miss me as much as they did and except me as their friend again so willingly. But it didnt matter. I was just happy we were all friends again.
