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.


32. Please Don't Go, Harry

"I'm so sorry for not talking to you for so long! I'm sure you've heard from my family about me on the olympic team and my injury and such so it's just been really stressfull. I promise I won't let it happen again! Do you want to do something tonight? Like go out to eat or something?" I was so glad he spoke english, too. I was a fluent speaker of romanian but english always came easier to me.

"Yeah, let me just get my keys and wallet. Why don't you come in and say 'hi' to everyone?" He stood back and let me walk past him into the warm home. It, like my home, was just how I had left it. Spacious yet very homey.

"Mom! Dad! Rue's here!" I heard a gasp come from the dining room area where they ate every night and then I saw his mother come around the corner, his father following close behind.

His mothers face lit up to a big smile when she saw me and she rushed over to me and gave me a huge hug. "Rue! Where have you been all this time!? I've seen you on the news for dating that boy from that band! How has the olympic team been going for you? I have so many questions! Sit down, please!"

I sat down across from her and glanced at Petar who just laughed and ran up the stairs to gather his things. He had gotten more muscle since I had last seen him, but not to where it looked bad. He had some facial hair, which I wasn't too fond of but I guess I would get over it.

I turned my head back to his mother and began telling her everything. I had always been closer to her than my own mother. "I'm sorry I haven't been here! I've been so busy up in England!" I slapped myself mentally at the next part because of all people to lie to, she wasn't one that I would ever want to do that to. "And yeah, Harry. He's from One Direction. He's great... Really." I heard a dish drop in the dining area and his younger sister, Rayna, came running into the living room.

"ONE DIRECTION?! YOU'RE DATING ONE OF THEM!!? WHICH ONE!" She was standing over me, I could easily tell that she was a directioner.

"Harry... I've been dating him for almost four months, I think? I don't really keep track of dates except for year anniversarys."

Rayna stood infront of me with her mouth wide open and her eyes popping out of her head. "You... Harry Styles... Dating... I NEED TO MEET HIM!"

I gave a small smile and hung my head. "I can introduce you two one day if he ever plans on speaking to me again... "

Rayna and Iva's, Petar's mom, face dropped when I said this. I knew I shouldn't be saying Harry and I are fighting but I know that I can trust them with my life. "What do you mean?" Iva asked me.

"We just got into a really bad fight. I'm sure we'll be fine, though." I shrugged my shoulders and lifted my head up, face still in a frown.

"It will be fine. From all that I've read on him, he seems to be a very forgiving person. You're strong. You'll get through this." Rayna said as she put her hand on my shoulder. This is why I always wish I was part of Petar's family rather than my own. Everyone knew the right thing to say and when to say it. They cared for each other as a true family.

"Yeah, I hope so. Where's Andon?" Andon was Petar's younger brother who always had the biggest crush on me. He was only a year younger and looked like a small Petar. All of the Sarac's are handsome and beautiful. With brown, straight hair and icey blue eyes. Their skin color was the perfect shade of olive.

"He's in the kitchen. Ever since you left he hasn't neem the same! I think he needs some Rue and Andy time!" Rayna said in a mocking tone. She was the youngest sibling of the Sarac family and I always got on with her so well.

"Andy! You're love is home!" I shouted in the kitchen. I walked in and saw Andon sitting at the table playing with his mashed potatoes. He immediately dropped his fork and stood up when I spoke. His mouth was hanging open and he was looking at me up and down.

"Rue! You've come back to love me!" he started to run towards me with his arms open and his mouth in the kissing position. I stuck my arm out, and while he was way taller than I am, I grabbed his face around his chin. He gave me a confused face.

"I will hug you, but I will not kiss you Andy!"

"You know you want me Rue-Rue!"

"Whatever will help you sleep at night!"

He rolled his eyes and I dropped my hand and he wrapped his arms around my waist and gave me a hug. When we pulled away I heard someone clear their throat from behind me. I still had my arms wrapped around Andon's neck as I turned my torso to see who it was.

Petar was standing behind us with an ammused look on his face. He changed his shirt so he was wearing his jeans and a plaid shirt now. He had on some boat shoes to complete his look and I could smell his amazing colgne from across the across the room.

"You two done yet?"

I dropped my hands from Andon's neck and walked over to Petar. "Yeah, come on."

"I'm going out with Rue for the night!" Petar called to his family. He then turned to look at me. "Are we walking or driving?"

"It's so cold and pretty outside. Let's walk."

"Of course. Rue wantes to be difficult!" I gave him a playful shove as he opened the door for me to walk out.

We walked in silence for a few minutes, both of us smiling at the air, just happy to be with each other again. "So, not that I'm not happy that you came to see me and everything, but what made you come here?"

I gave a sigh, knowing I'd have to explain everything to him. "I'm sure that you heard I'm dating Harry Styles?" He nodded his head at me, avoiding eye contact and looking at the ground. "Well, we weren't really dating until about three weeks ago. It was a publicitiy stunt. I fell and hurt my back and almost got kicked off the olympic team so I needed to be put back into the ranks and he needed to be viewed as a 'good person' again because he dated some older lady who the public didn't like very much or something. And so when he first tried to tell me to like him I told him it wasn't a good idea because our publicity stunt only lasted for a year and a half. You know me better than almost anyone. You know I don't lead myself on. You know I rarely even let myself fall for any guy becuase I don't want to get hurt. Well, for some reason, I let myself fall for him, 'love' him you want to say. And tonight I just got freaked out because he met my whole family and they all loved him. I told him we needed to take a break and that I didn't love him and he didn't get mad but that made me get mad and then he got mad and I left. I just walked out. He hasn't called me, texted me, nothing. And I have no idea what to do or what to say or anything! I need your help, Petar, I don't know what to d-" I was cut off mid sentence. I had my eyes wide open as his hands were grabbing onto my face and his lips were on top of mine.

Momentarily, I melted into the kiss, but then I realised something. I had loved Petar for so long, when I expected us to kiss I wanted sparks and fireworks. All of the things I had with Harry.

I didn't want Petar. I wanted Harry.

I pushed Petar off of me with an angry face. "Rue? What are you doing?!" I heard the voice I had been wanting to hear all night but not at that moment.

I turned and saw Harry with his mouth open and his eyes looking angry with flames in them. "No, Harry, it's not what it looks like."

"Then what is it? I came after you in a town where I have no idea what anything means because I need you in my life and you are over here with some other guy? Is this why you don't want to be with me?" Harry was standing infront of me now.

I couldn't hold it in anymore, the tears started to form in my eyes because I knew I was going to loose someone, or both people, I cared about tonight. "Can I just explain everything? Please?"

Harry's eye's of anger slowly faded into those of pure saddness and sorrow, which only broke my heart more. "I just need some time. We can talk tomorrow."

Harry turned on his heel and left me standing alone with Petar. I whispered, even though I knew he wouldn't hear me, "Please don't go, Harry."


DUN DUN DUNNNNNN! I'm going to try and update a chapter tomorrow in Harry's POV tomorrow since I don't have many chapters in his POV.
