What Humans Do

The world of gymnastics is a cruel one and when you get injured on the job you will be seen as easy prey. That's exactly what happened to me. I'm on the UK's Olympic Gymnast team and one day it's all taken from me when I left the gym on a stretcher. Now, I'm fighting my way back to the top of my team. That's the whole point of this whole stunt. Everything with him was perfect, but I couldn't allow that. I could only be with him for a year and a half. That's it. That's the whole point of this publicity stunt, to get back to the top, not to fall for each other. I would NOT, under any circumstnaces, let myself fall in love with Harry Styles.


8. Movie Marathon and Cuddling

"Are you ready to go?" Harry asked me as he put the Range Rover into reverse.

"Yeah," I replied as he turned around to be sure no one was behind him.

He began to drive to his house. I'd never been there before so I had no idea how far it was. "Do you live with anyone else?"

"Yeah, I live with Louis. He was the other person with me when we first met... That reminds me, I've been meaning to ask you, why did you run out of the office when we first met and come back with no sweatshirt?"

My face immediately became red and I turned my head away from him so he couldn't see. I should've know that'd he'd ask about that sometime, I just hoped he'd forgotten about that. "Well, it's a funny story really.... Well, actually it's not, just kind of awkward. But, I had my friend, Emmie's, hoodie because it's so comfortable and when I ran behind you two to change I didn't realise who you were. So, I put the hoodie on, thinking it was no big deal. Then, I go up there and I see you and Grettea says who you are and I didn't want you to think I was some crazy fan girl so I ran outside and threw the hoodie off over the staircase," I finished with an awkward laugh and finally gaining the courage to look off to Harry's direction.

Harry had his hand covering his mouth laughing at me. Thank god we're at a red light, he was laughing so hard I began to see tears form in his eyes.

I sighed loudly and said, "I don't see what's so funny!" Harry finally stopped laughing and looked at me. Then the laughing began again and I just couldn't help myself from laughing too. "Can you please tell me what's so funny now?"

Harry gasped for breath, ceasing his laughter at last, and replied "I just remembered your face when you ran away... If you'd've saw your face you'd be laughing like I am right now! And, we're here!"

Harry shut off the car, hopped out and began walking to my side of the car to open my door. "Is anyone home?"

Harry smilied and looked at me. "Nope, just us today. Lou's out with the rest of the boys... They may come over later, but I doubt it. They'll probably go to Niall's or something."

"Okay, what movies do you have?" I asked as he unlocked the door and opened it for me.

"You'll see," he said from behind. When I looked around my mouth dropped. His home was much nicer than mine. It was still a flat, but it was nice. A chandeler was in the front room and there were two halls that were on seperate sides, one leading to the kitchen and the other I wasn't sure of yet. "Harry... Your home is beautiful! And I've only been in the front room! Why haven't we been coming here instead of my house?!"

"I figured we should get to know each other and since there's almost always people here than that wouldn't be such a great idea here." Harry grabbed my hand and led me towards the hall to the left, the one with the kitchen. "Do you want to get changed into something more comfortable? There's a bathroom right down the other hall."

"Yeah, but my bag's in the-"

"Nope, I have it right here! See, I can be an amazing boyfriend!" Harry half smilied at me and held my bag in the air.

I just smilied back at him, this time, I didn't even know why. He just made me happy. I grabbed my bag and dropped his hand as I turned to walk towards the bathroom when he grasped it again and whipped me around and pulled me into a rather awkward hug. I wasn't really sure what to do so I just set my bag on the floor and became glued to his body again.

His smell, intoxicating. His soft shirt, comforting. His head on top of mine, perfect. We fit together like we were molded just so we can hold each other with comfort. I never wanted to let go. I felt safe with him. Like I had someone who really cared about me.

Harry was the first to pull away and he grasped my shoulders and looked into my eyes. "I hope you didn't find that too awkward, I just wanted to get use to that before we do it infront of everyone and make it weird."

It stung a little when he said that. He didn't hug me just to hug me, he hugged me to get it out of the way. "Oh, it's fine. I'm just going to go change now... I'll be back in a few minutes." And with that, I bent down to grab my bag and walked away from Harry.


"That's a terrible movie! Why would anyone ever own that?" I said as Harry and I were sitting on the floor infront of his entertainment centre, picking out a movie. Harry was holding up a DVD of Planet 51.

"Yeah, this movie is kind of bad," he replied with a laugh and set the movie back down.

He had a huge movie collection and there was pleanty of things to pick from but a certain movie had caught my eye and excitement began to build for me. I grabbed the movie and held it up, making the puppy face as I did this. "Harry, can we PLEASE watch this!"

Harry looked up and his face lit up. "Yes! That movie's amazing! I didn't think you'd like the movie 'Leap Year'!" I smilied as he grabbed the movie from me and put it into the DVD player. We joined each other at the couch.

He cleared his throat in an awkward was and said, "Should we sit... 'couple-y' if the boys decide to come here?"

Instead of responding I just scootched closer to him and grabbed his hand in mine and leaned my head on his chest as his arm wrapped around my shoulders and dangled down to my wasit.

We made it about ten minutes into the movie when Harry spoke up. "You wanna play twenty-questions?"

I lifted my head from his comfy chest and gave him a questioning look. "I know I've only known you for a few days, but if the guys asked me anytihng about you, I wouldn't know what to reply."

I nodded my head because he was right. "Okay, you first."

"What's your full name?"

"Ruexandra Adelina Rotar. My family's all from Romania." I said to reply to the odd look he gave me. "But, don't EVER call me Ruexandra. I hate it.  Only call me Rue."

I gave him a sqiunty faced look and he just laughed. I smilied up at him and laid my head back down on his chest and thought about what to ask him. "When were you born? And where are you from?"

"February 1st, 1994 and Holmes Chapel. You?"

"February 19th, 1994 and Manchester but I moved back to Romania when I was two then moved back when I turned six."

"Well, our birthdays are rather close... I guess good things come in two, huh?" He looked down and winked at me.

I laughed at him. "Okay, I asked two questions, so you ask two questions."

"Okay, favorite animal and biggest fear?"

"Elephant and being left and being alone... Needles, too."

"Cat and I really hate snakes." Harry gave my hand a squeze and tilted my head up towards him. "I promise that I won't even leave you."

I instantly knew he meant it. I turned my body around so that I was facing him and I wrapped my arms around him. "I know. Thank you."

Everything felt so right with him. Always.
