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..


9. The Park

Maddie's Pov 

I sit in the black van, next to Harry, laughing along with everybody at Niall's advice to Haz. I feel eyes on me and turn to see Harry smiling at me. I feel myself blush and look away.  

We pull up to park and all just kind of sit there. I look around confused, wondering why nobody's getting out. After a few minutes of waiting, I impatiently sigh and crawl over Harry and Zayn to reach the door. I open it slowly, making sure not slam it, and jump out. 

I breath in deeply, closing my eyes, letting the wind blow on my face. The last time I was aloud to go to this park was before mom died. She used to take Michael and I here all the time. I look around and my head fills with bitter-sweet memories of Michael, mom, Ryan, and I spending whole days here. 

I feel someone's hand on my back and turn to see Louis sitting in van with the rest of the boys behind him waiting to get out. I didn't realize I was blocking the door. "Are you planning on letting us out anytime soon, carrot? Or are you gonna stand there and sniff air all day." he asks with a smile. 

I laugh and move out of the way of the door watching Louis and Liam jump out at the same time. I hear banging in side the van and look in to see Niall, Zayn, and Harry all trying to get out at the same time. 

"Ouch! Don't elbow me there Zayn!" 

"I wouldn't elbow you if you'd let me through, Niall!" 

"Arghh! Just let me out!" I hear Harry yell impatiently. 

Zayn falls out if the van, landing on his butt. I hear Niall crack up, then watch him as he falls out of the van, landing on Zayn. Zayn pushes him off then gets up, brushing himself off. "Be more careful next time, would ya?" Zayn tells Niall. 

Niall sits up and rubs his arm. "Its not my fault mate! Haz pushed me!" Niall says, defensively. Harry jumps out of the van and looks at me with a cheeky grin. "Whoops!" he says. I laugh and walk over to Niall and extend my hand. 

"Are you alright, hun?" I ask, as I help him up. "Yeah I'm ok. Just tell your boyfriend not to shove. It's not nice." he shoots Harry a dirty look, while my face turns pink at the label he gave Harry. I don't dismiss it though, and neither does  he. 

I see the boys look around, but none of them move. I clap my hands together, getting all their attention, and ask "So. What where would you all like to go?" 

"The play ground!!" Niall, Lou, and Harry shout. I agree to go to the playground, and start walking toward it. I notice none of the boys follow me and turn around to see all of them staring at me dumbly. 

"What..? I thought we were going to the park.." I ask slowly, confused. 

"We are going to the park, carrot. But we're not just going to walk. That'd be boring!" Louis exclaims. 

I look at Harry with confusion written clearly on my face. Niall jumps, and runs toward Liam. "Liam's my partner!" he shouts, as he hops on his back. 

Zayn turns to Lou and groans. "I guess that means I'm stuck with you again." he teases, walking toward Lou. "I'm riding this time though!" he adds as he jumps on Lou's back. 

The four boys stare at me again. "What are you waiting for? Harry's your partner, and if he's a gentleman at all, he'll be the runner." Liam says while staring at Harry. I see Harry sigh and walk toward me. 

"Do they want me to get on your back?" I whisper at Harry. He nods, and bends down. 

"Hop on!" he says with fake enthusiasm. 

I don't move and he stands up and looks at me. "What's the matter love?" 

I look down, then back at him, exasperated. "I'm in a dress!" I hiss quietly. "I can't just hop in your back! Everyone will se my panties!" 

He looks down at my dress and runs his hand through his hair. "We can't wait all day Hazza!" Zayn yells. 

I see Harry look back up at me, eyes shining. With out saying a word, he comes and scoops me up in his arms. I wrap mine around his neck and laugh. 

I can't help but safe and relaxed in his strong, warm arms. "This feels right", I think to myself and happily sigh. 

"Let's take a head start", I whisper to him. I feel him take off toward the park and laugh like crazy at the boys protests, and accusations of cheating. 

We arrive at the park first and he spins us in circles yelling, "We won! We won!" at the four losers. He sets me down and grabs my hand, lifting up my arm into the air. "The champions! We won! We're the champions!" I can hear genuine excitement in his voice and cheer with him. 

After the boys got over their embarrassing loss, we took over the playground. Dominating the swings and slides, and playing forts with the different sections. Niall had been crowned king of the park and I had been crowned queen.

After the playground, we went over to the grassy part of the park and laughed and talked and shared stories. Niall had gotten his guitar out of the van and we sang our favorite songs. We shared embarrassing moments, and favorite times of our past. We talked for hours and I felt like I knew the boys. Not Harry, Liam, Zayn, Niall, and Louis from One Direction, but the actual Harry, Liam, Zayn, Niall, and Louis. In the hours we talked, I realized that I really like Harry, like more than a crush. I felt like I could spend the rest of my life in this one afternoon, and it still wasn't over. 

I was resting my head on Harry's lap, while he sat up against a tree, listening to Niall and Liam sing Justin Beiber for the thousandth time. I feel my stomach growl and place my hands on it. Harry looks at me amused. 

"Hungry?" he asks, smiling. I nod and sit up, grabbing his hand. "I know a nice ice cream place up the street a bit. Mind if we go grab a bite?" i say as im already pulling him up. "Do I have a choice?" he replies, sarcastically. I laugh and pull him along. 

"It's this way", I say walking toward the side walk. 

"We'll be back soon!" he calls over his shoulder at the boys, then catches up to me. We walk hand-in-hand down the road toward the ice cream place. 

I notice that his hand fit perfectly in mine and felt happy, truly happy. I wasn't worrying about Ryan, or think about my mom and Michael. I was enjoying the afternoon with the boy of my dreams. 

I know I like this boy, but just how much? 
The question pops into my head and I'm not sure of the answer. Do I love this boy? I've only know him two days, but I feel like I've known him forever. I look up at his chocolate curls and see him turn toward me. His bright green eyes are shining, reflecting back the happiness I feel. The corners of his mouth flick up, revealing his deep set dimples, and perfect smile. 

I look into the face of Harry Styles and know my answer.
