Behind The Rapids

Charlotte Bennett and Harry Styles have been close when they were little, but a mysterious feud between their parents causes a big move for The Bennett family. They move across the dangerous rapids, where Charlotte's sister drowned in. When their restricted love gets too strong, Charlotte realizes she can't do this anymore, and has to cross the rapids only to find Harry has moved to london with 4 friends. Not knowing he's a part of One Direction, she tracks him down only to find an unwelcomed guest and a nerve-wracking surprise, which leads her into a dangerous life of twists and turns. And that's only the beginning...

I walked down to the rapids, like me and Harry did every Sunday after church. I sat down, waiting for Harry. I'm only 13 but I don't have a phone on me, so it's not like I could just give him a bell. I walked closer to the rapids, sticking a toe in. I sighed, Harry was taking much longer than usual. I looked across the rapids, squinting my eyes up at the sun. Charlotte, my fraternal twin was sick, so my mother made her stay in bed. I'm not going to lie, I had a small crush on Harry. Gemma, on the other hand, wasn't so nice. I felt a cold hand on my shoulder.

"Harry, you came!" I say, before turning around, to see an angry Gemma, right as she pushed me, into the cold, fast moving rapids. I screamed, as I hit the surface, before blacking out, under the fast moving water.

(Harry's POV)

I walked inside the house, just after church. I was changing into more suitable clothes to go to the rapids with Charlotte and Shayna. Gemma passed me in the hallway.

"I think they're sick today, I'll go check before you get changed." I nodded.

"Okay, Gemma." I walked into my room, and sat down on the bed, waiting for Gemma to come tell me if they were at the river. I swung my feet, letting them hit against the side of the bed, when around 5 minutes later, Gemma opened the door to my room.

"They're not there." I nodded.

"Thanks, Gemma." I said, before going downstairs with my mother, Anne, to watch some TV.

(Charlottes POV)

I laid in bed, blowing my nose, wishing I could be at the rapids with Harry and Shayna. I got up, to go make some cream of chicken soup, when I heard a knock at the door. I bounded down the hallway to answer it.

"Yes?" I said.

"Hi, are your parents home?" I nodded. I walked down the hallway going to my mother and father's room.

"Mum, Dad? There's a police officer at the door.." They looked at eachother, with a worried look. My mum ran to the door, and my dad took my hand.

"Charlotte, why don't you go read, aye?" I nodded, as I walked to my room, closing the door, as I sat infront of my little bookcase, thinking nothing of the sobs coming from the other room. A few hours later, after I got in my Jammies, my dad came in to say goodnight. My mum was out of the house, dealing with something 'super important' at the moment. "Sweetie?" My dad said.

"Yes?" I asked, looking up at him.

"I have something to tell you.." He said, looking down at me.

"Okay.." I said, as I hopped into bed. "Is it a surprise?" I said, smiling from ear to ear.

"No, sweetie, it's very bad news.."

"Oh. Okay." I replied, my smile shrinking alot.

"Charlotte.. your sister, Shayna had a tragic accident and passed away..."

That night, I cried myself to sleep, and was planning to talk to my understanding bestfriend, Gemma, in the morning at school.
