Gotta Be You

I know how they both feel and now all that’s left to do is to find out how I feel.

And right now, my heart is stuck in the middle of a tug-o-war. Niall pulling hard on one side and Harry pulling just as hard on the other.


9. First Time I Met You

Harry’s POV


I had finally stopped crying and the room was silent again except for the quiet, constant beeping sound coming from the heart monitor.

I took a deep breath as I gathered my thoughts, trying to think of what to say. They say that you have to talk to people who are in a coma to keep them focused and connected which will help them wake up.

I looked at her face and cleared my throat.

“Hi, Isla. It’s Harry. You can probably tell it’s me just by my voice and how slow I’m talking right now.” I chuckled.

“First of all, I wanted to apologize for what I did yesterday. That was out of line and I regret doing it. If I hadn’t done it, you wouldn’t be here right now,” I choked on the last few words as I was about to cry again but I took a deep breath to stop myself.

“I hope that--no, I KNOW that you’ll wake up, and when you do, I hope that you’ll forgive me. I don’t think I can live knowing that you don't forgive me, that you hate me.”

“That’s all I wanna say about that right now, so I’ll talk about something else…”

I pondered, thinking about what to talk about. A smile grew on my face as I remembered the first time I met her, the first time I saw her beautiful face.

“I remember vividly the first time I saw you, like it was yesterday,” the smile growing on my face, “I was so captivated by you.”




“Hey, is it alright if we pick up Dani at dance practice before we head to my place?” Liam asked me. Liam was having a party for Dani’s birthday at her place tonight and we were just at my place getting some extra snacks and beer.

“Sure,” I replied. Putting the drinks into a cooler.

We drove to Dani’s dance studio and parked in the parking lot.

“They’re just finishing up, we can wait for her inside,” Liam said, getting out of the car. I followed him while checking my phone.

We went inside and walked down the hallway before Liam stopped in front of a room and opened the door.

We quietly walked inside as music played and I saw Dani and some other dancers practicing.

We stayed off to the side as we waited.

I was just watching them but then something caught my eye. Actually, someONE. One of the other dancers was doing a pirouette, her brown, wavy hair flying around her face. She stopped spinning and I got a good look at her face. She had beautiful, green eyes and small lips that moved into a gorgeous smile. I was entranced by her dancing and her beauty.

I had to meet her.

“Okay, that’s it for today! Don’t forget practice again on Monday!” I heard one of the other dancers saying, most likely the choreographer. Everyone started to disperse and grab their things.

“Hey, Liam, do you think you can have Dani introduce me to that girl over there?” I whispered to him, pointing to the girl.

“Wow, that was quick, we’ve only been here for 5 minutes and you already have you eye on someone.” He smirked at me, shaking his head, before saying, “Sure, Hazza, wouldn’t wanna stop you from working your charm on an innocent girl.”

I lightly punched him on his arm, causing him to say ‘Ow!’. I merely grinned before looking at the girl again.

Dani came over and gave Liam a quick kiss on the lips.

“Ew, get a room, would ya?” I joked, covering my eyes.

“Okay, we’ll go get a room and you can stay here and go talk to that girl by yourself,” Liam retorted. The smile quickly leaving my face.

“What are you talking about?” Dani said, curiously.

“Hazza wants to meet that girl over there, he’s in love” he said, putting his arm around Dani’s waist and pointing to the girl.

“Shut up! I am not! I just wanna meet her,” I said, blushing.

Dani laughed and said, “Sure, she’d love to meet you too, she’s a lovely girl.”

I smiled, wanting to meet her even more.

“What’s her name?” I asked, still locking my eyes on her.

“Isla. Isla Abbott.”


~End of flashback~


“The second I laid my eyes on you, I knew that I had to meet you,” I said, still smiling, "I already started falling for you."




"Hey, Isla!" Dani yelled. I saw her turn her head towards us with a small smile, "come here."

She put down her things and started heading towards us. We made eye contact and my heart skipped a beat. I was hoping that I didn’t look like an idiot with the huge smile on my face.

"Hey, there's someone I want you to meet, this is Liam, my boyfriend," Dani said, putting her hand on Liam’s chest with his arms still around her waist.

She shook hands with him as they exchanged 'hello's'.

Then Dani turned towards me before she said, "and this is--"

"I know who he is," she interrupted with a smile, she stuck her hand out to me and I shook it, smiling back at her, "you're from The Wanted, right? I love your music."

Me, Liam and Dani looked at her with incredulous faces. She thought I was in The Wanted? We look totally different from them.

We continued looking at her while my mouth kept opening and closing, figuring out how to tell her that she was wrong.

Then she started laughing. God, even her laugh was beautiful. But why was she laughing?

Me, Liam and Dani exchanged confused looks and then all looked at her.

"I'm just kidding! Haha, of course I know you're from One Direction. Which girl on this planet doesn't know One Direction?" she said, her laugh still present in her twinkling eyes.

She's funny; I love that about a girl. I was already starting to really like her.

"Nice to meet you," she said, "you're Louis, right? You're my favourite from the band."

Uhhh, what's going on? She thought I was Louis?

Then I said, "Um, no, actually I'm--"

She laughed again interrupting me.

"I can't believe you fell for that again. I know you're Harry," she said, she paused still looking at me then she said, "I'm Isla."

"Very nice to meet you, Isla," I said, my smile appearing on my face again, "that's a very beautiful name, by the way." I wanted to say that she herself was beautiful too but I didn't want to come on too strong.

I saw her blush and look down as she said, "Thank you."

She looked up at me then, her blush still slightly visible on her face.

"Sorry to be a party pooper but we should go and get the party ready," Liam said.

I didn't want to go. I wanted to get to know her more. And I didn't want to sound like a player and ask for her number when we've only been talking to 5 minutes. She wasn't like any other girl I've met.

"You guys can continue this later actually, you're still able to make it tonight, right, Isla?" Dani asked her. I smiled again, looking at her, waiting for her answer. I really wanted her to come tonight.

"Of course! I wouldn't miss your birthday party, I'll be there," she said.

"Great!" I said, too excitedly. I blushed a little as they all looked at me.

"It was nice to meet you, Harry, I'll see you tonight," she said to me, putting her hand on my arm, sending waves of electricity throughout my body. All too soon, she let go.

Then turned to Dani, "I'll see you later, babe, happy birthday again." She then gave her a hug.

Can I get a hug too?

"Thanks, babe, see ya," Dani replied.

"Bye Liam, nice to finally meet you, Dani talks about you all the time," she said.

"Oh, does she? Hopefully good things,” he joked, smiling at Dani.

"Maybe," Dani winked back at him and gave him a quick kiss. "Anyways, we gotta go, see you later, Isla."

"Bye guys!" giving us a small wave.

"Bye Isla," I said.

"Goodbye Harry," she replied, with her beautiful smile showing on her face.

And with that she turned around and walked away.

I couldn't wait to see her again tonight.
