"Harry," I whispered. He didn't look at me. "Harry!" I said a little louder. He still wouldn't look. "HARRY!" I yelled into his ear.
"Ow!" He exclaimed, putting a hand over his ear. "What was that for?"
"Are you and Hallie going to the dance together?" I asked. Yesterday they'd come to the after-party together, and she sat with him at the pizza parlor. I wanted the answer to be no, I wanted him to tell me that they're just close friends, but I knew the chances of that were slim.
"Yes, Zayn!" He said. "I asked her yesterday," Of course. Just my luck that she'd be into Harry. I was so close, she was mine for a second, but I lost her. "Don't look so down," Harry patted me on the back. "You can still dance with her, I think she'd like it." As cliche as it was, that made me smile. Just the thought of holding her close and dancing seemed like a dream.
"You look amazing," Niall said as the girls walked down the stairs. My eyes moved to Hallie, she looked like an angel in her black and white dress. I watched her as she walked to Harry and he wrapped his arms around her. Oh, how I wish that was me.
"You're beautiful," I heard Harry say to her.
"Let's wait and take pictures at the dance," Christa said the only one without a date, right? But how said, not having a date to my last Homecoming. Then Christa walked up to me, with Louis trailing behind her. "There's someone I want you to meet at the dance, Zayn." Christa said. I'm so pathetic, my friends are setting me up.
"Ok, sure." I said. I looked over at Harry and Hallie walking to the car with their arms around each other. If they didn't look so perfect together, I'd hate him right now.
My friend Perrie told me she had a thing for Zayn. She's in my theatre class, theatre was my thing like how Holly danced and Josie cheered. Perrie and I talked for hours on FaceTime about boys and teachers and such. She told me about her plans to make a band and be a singer. I introduced her to Louis the other day. And yesterday, when we saw Hallie and Harry together, we knew it was time to set Perrie and Zayn up. They're perfect for each other anyways, it had to happen sometime.
When we arrived at the dance I started looking for her immediately. I saw Josie got talk to the other cheerleaders. Ugh, how could she stand them? Hallie, Harry, Danielle and Liam went straight to the dance floor. Poor Zayn waited by the door. Then I saw Perrie, she was wearing a bright blue dress with white heel and her blonde hair was help up in a perfectly messy up 'do with a white flower.
"Perrie!" I waved her over. "He's here!" She looked over at Zayn in his tux.
"Gosh! He's gorgeous!" She squealed. Then we linked arms and walked over to him. Zayn's face lit up like a light when he saw her. Their eyes met and you could see a sparkle in Zayn's brown eyes that wasn't there before. "I'm Perrie," she said, holding out her hand. He took a step closer to her and shook her hand.
"Zayn," he answered.
"I'll let you two get to know each other." I winked at them, and left.
"Well hello there, mu'lady." Louis said. I giggled as he wrapped his strong arms around me, making me melt. "Care for a dance?"
"Of course, good sir." I giggled. He spun me, renaissance style and we went to join the others on the dance floor.
