Remembering Katy Perry

Sixteen year old Maddie has lived a hard life. She also keeps a big secret. When she finds out the boy she met two years ago at a concert is Harry Styles, her life turns to chaos. She has to chose between her brutal, unforgiving past or the new, shining future with her love. It's an easy choice! At least it is until her past comes to haunt her future..


24. Not Fair

Katherine's Pov 

We pull up to the familiar house and a short chubby man dressed in a black polo and light jeans holds the door open for Harry and Maddie, I assume. 

I go to jump out of the car but I hear the door lock and sit back and groan. What does my dad want know? I've had so many lectures and talks about what's going on with Maddie in the past two weeks. If I hear another one I'll lose it. 

"Kath," I turn and give my dad a sharp look. I don't want to hear another word about how I should talk to people about what's going on and how I should feel. 

"Just, um, just text me when you want to be picked up, ok?" 

I nod and mumble thanks under my breath, not really wanting to talk. The door unlocks and I hop out, feeling the heat of the sun on my back. 

"I love you, honey." 

"Love you too, dad." 

I shut the door and watch him drive off, not sure of what to do. I don't really want to go see Maddie. This might be the last time I see her and I'm not ready to say good bye. 

We had plans of going off to the same college, her to be a teacher, and me to be a counselor. We were going to share a dorm room and after college get an apartment together, until one of us found the right guy and moved out, eventually getting married. I was going to be her bridesmaid, and she was going to be mine. Our kids would grow up together and hopefully be as close as we are. Retirement time would come and we wanted to open a restaurant together and live the rest of old lives being grandparents, and great grandparents. 

But now that's a ruined. None of that can happen now because of Harry. He's taking her away from me, even though I've been there through everything with her. We've known each other since we were babies, she's known him two and a half weeks, and she's choosing him. 

I hear a car door slam, and turn to see the taxi drive off, leaving Maddie and Harry on the sidewalk holding hands. Damn! She looks so tired! She's got dark circles under her eyes, and she's leaning on Harry for support. He looks pretty tired to. Do neither of them sleep? 


She lights up and walks toward me, dragging Harry along with her. He's buried in his phone though. Probably on twitter or something. 

"Hey, Maddie!" 

I pull her in for a hug and squeeze. 

"Kath! Ribs!" she gasps. 

Fuck! I forgot about her ribs! I pull away and place my hands on her shoulders, looking her over. She has on a fake smile to try and hide the pain, and she's gotten less sleep than I thought. Pronounced black bags cover underneath her eyes and she doesn't look as bright as she normally does. 

"Sorry about that, completely forgot!" 

Her smile becomes genuine and she wraps her arms around my neck again, burying her head in my shoulder. I wrap my arms around her, being more gentle, and enjoy the moment. This is going to be one of the last hugs I get from her for a long time and I don't want it to end. 

Maddie's Pov 

Oh, I'm going to miss this! I'm going to miss her! I give her a squeeze, not caring how much it hurt. After standing in the middle of the sidewalk, latched on to my best friend I hear Harry clear his throat. I pull back and look at him curiously. 

"I didn't want to interrupt your, erm, best friend, girly moment, but Zayn wants you to text him. Like, now." 

"Oh, uh, okay?" 

Why does he sound so on the edge? Did something happen with Zayn? I turn toward Kath and see her staring at me with the same curiosity I'm feeling. 

"I dunno what's going on yet, babe. How bout you and Harry go inside and I'll meet you there in a minuet?" 

I put on a huge smile and use as much enthusiasm as I can. I know her and Harry will get along if they just sat down with each other for a while. But both of them are so bull headed they refuse to get along. 

Her face goes hard and I bite my lip nervously, out of habit. She runs her hand through her now straight hair, glances at Harry, who's standing awkwardly on my lawn with his hands shoved in his pockets, and sags her shoulders in defeat. 

"Fine. But I'm only doing this cause I love you. Come on, Styles!" 

I half jump and squeeze her one last time. 

"Thank you!" 

I kiss her cheek and listen to her laugh. I should probably calm down a bit. Even though it means so much to me that she's making an effort with him! Maybe they'll be come really close friends! I shouldn't get my hopes up though. 

I turn toward Harry and wave my hand, signaling for him to come over. He groans and shuffles over toward me, stopping in front of me. I wrap my arms around his neck and feel his slide around my waist. 

"No matter what she says, please be nice to her, Haz. It means so much to me that you guys are trying to get along" I whisper. 

I brush my lips against his and pull away, shooing him toward Kath. I watch him and Kath walk into the house, not speaking a word to each other. Ugh. Why can't they just get along?

I push Kath and Harry out of my head and start to think about Zayn, pulling my phone out of my pocket. I wonder what happened? He usually isn't the emergency type.  

I look down at my phone and see I have four new messages. Three from Zayn and one from Lou. Well, Louis can wait. I need to see what Zayn said. I open the first message and skim over the words, feeling my heart drop a little. 

'From: DJ Malik(; - I'm going to see Perrie sooner than I thought. Ten minuets away from her house and she won't take any of my calls..' 

I read the next one and my heart sinks even more. 

'From: DJ Malik(; - right out side her house now.. You don't truly think she's cheating do you? Oh god I hope not.. I don't know what I'd do.. Please answer and help me out!' 

I read the last message in disbelief. 

'From: DJ Malik(; - I walked in on her and some other guy.. The rumors were all true. They were all fucking true!'  

Oh my god! Zayn! He must be heartbroken! He liked Perrie so much and she fucking cheats on him? Oh, hell no. I will be having some words with her. But first, I have to make sure Zayn's alright. I hit call and listen to it ring twice before he picks up. 


His voice is broken and tired and I can tell he's been crying. 

"Oh my god. Zayn. I'm so sorry.." 

He takes a shaky breath before answering. 

"It was.. Horrible. I-I honestly don't know what to do Maddie. Why would she do this? Was I not good enough? I tried to give her everything she wanted and needed and keep her happy.. b-but I guess that wasn't enough.." 

My heart shatters with every word he says. 

"Zayn Malik. You listen to me. You were, no are, everything that girl could've dreamed about and more. She clearly couldn't see the amazing, loving, caring, funny, passionate, beautiful, talented, guy you are and will be begging for another chance. You deserve so much better than her anyway. If she's going to go out and do this bullshit, you need to find someone thirty gazillion times better then her, okay? Harry and I are coming to see you as soon as we land."

Shit. I shouldn't of said that. Harry really wants to see his family and even though I'm nervous, I'm still kind of excited to meet them. Harry will understand though. We'll stay in his apartment for a week, long enough to make sure Zayn's ok, then head to Holmes Chapel to stay with his family. 

"Yeah.. Liam's here already, Louis's on his way, and Niall has to catch a flight from Mullingar to London. I only told Liam though. He told the rest of the boys.. How soon can you be here Maddie?" 

Oh my God, he sounds so sad. Why the hell would Perrie do this to Zayn!? Arg! This pisses me off! 

"I'll be there as soon as I can, hun" I say gently. 

I hear Liam say something in the back ground, but can't make it out. Zayn agrees with whatever he said and then Liam is talking to me. 

"Hey, babe. He's really upset with this whole thing. I would never think Perrie was that type. Want to know the worst part?" 

"Wait, it gets worse!?" I shout into the phone, shocked. 

"Yep, it does. Zayn walked in on Perrie and some other guy, you know that much. Perrie and the guy both had no shirt on and you know what Perrie said to Zayn? She says 'Oh, Zayn! I didn't think you were going to be home for another hour or two! Sorry you had to find out like this, but we're over. Could you leave us alone please?"


"Calm down, babe. I was pretty mad to when he told me to, but he'll get even more upset if he hears you shouting." 

He whispers the last part and I take the phone away from my ear for a minuet, trying to calm myself down. Who the hell does she think she is? You can't just cheat on and leave Zayn Malik! He's such a nice guy! He doesn't deserve any of the bullshit! Ugh! 

I pull the phone back up to my ear and talk to Liam through gritted teeth. 

"I can't really calm down, Liam. In no way, shape, or form, does Zayn deserve this. It's fucking ridiculous."

"Your right. Your absolutely right. This shouldn't be happening to him. But I have to go. I'm not sure where he went and I want find him before he does something stupid." 

Zayn wouldn't do anything to stupid, right? No, of course not. He knows better. At least, I hope he does. 

"Yeah, go find him. Tell him to call or text me if he needs anything at all. And I'll be there by tomorrow afternoon. And tell him I love him and not to do anything he'll regret." 

"Of course, love. See ya tomorrow." 

He hangs up the phone and I pull mine away from my head and look at it, fighting the urge to throw it. My blood boils and I shake slightly with anger. Pure, red, hot, anger toward Perrie. 

No, that's wrong. I love Perrie and Little Mix and their music. I'm pissed at what she did. No body should ever know what it feels like to be cheated on. To feel like their not good enough or that they didn't do enough. 

I reluctantly put my phone back in my pocket and storm up to the house, slamming the door as I walk inside. Harry's on the couch staring at me confused, and Kaths laid out on the floor in front of him with the same expression. 

I shake my head at both of them, a small warning that they shouldn't push me right now, walk into the living room, and start to pace. 

Why Zayn!? Out of all people, it had to be Zayn. In what world is that fair!? Zayn has never done anything to anybody, yet he gets stuck with this shit!? Oh, it's a good damn thing I don't have Perrie's number. I have a few things I'd like to tell her. 

"Is it safe to ask why your mad, yet?" 

Harry's cautious voice snaps me out of my thoughts. I walk over to him and take a deep breath, again, trying to calm myself. 

"Perrie cheated on and left Zayn. He walked in on her and another guy fucking making out with no shirts on and Perrie was like 'Oh yeah! We're done! Could you leave us alone please?"
