"Harry! Why didn't you tell us that you were talking to someone?" Niall shouted at me in a whisper.
"I don't know. I guess I just wanted to see how it would work with her first. I'm going to go and check on her, though. She's very timid! You probably scared her!" I said to the boys with a smile as I began to turn.
Louis spoke up next. "No wonder why he likes her. She acts like a little cat!"
The words were greeted by soft howls of laughter by all the boys, including me. She was rather cat-like. "I'll be back in a few minutes."
"Do try not to make too much noise, Haz! We've company over!" Louis hollered at me, loud enough that I am sure Rue heard. I turned on my heel and held my hands up and said "No promises. It's the curls. Their girl magnets!" I added in a laugh so if Rue did hear she knew I was joking.
I'd only known Rue for about a week and I already knew that we could become something more than friends. I'm not saying that I love her, I've known her for only a few days, that'd be ridiculous! But, I knew we could really become a happy couple. She was beautiful and funny and smart and caring. I wasn't sure if she liked me back or not, but I knew even if she did we couldn't ever be together. This whole 'thing' we're doing has to end soon. I didn't want to lead her on and I didn't want to lead myself on by thinking this could acutally go somwhere.
I wish I had the spine to talk to her about it, but I knew the words would never leave my thoughts. She would never know, unless she asked. Even then, I may not say anything.
I finally made it to my room, and, since I was so consumed in my own pety thoughts, I opened the door, not even knocking. I looked in and threw a hand over my eyes. "Harry, you don't have to cover your eyes. I'm fully dressed," Rue's voice rang into my ears.
I slowly removed my hand from my face and said, "sorry about just barging in. I forgot you were in here."
She smilied at me. "It's fine. It's your room. I figured you'd forget I was in here so I changed really fast."
I finally got the courage to look at her face. She looked so beautiful, even if she was just in a pair of PJ's and her hair in a pony tail. "Why are you staring at me?" She asked, her face full with amusement.
"No reason. You're just so beautiful." She grinned at me, showing her perfect teeth, and her face became a light shade of pink. "You're staying tonight, right?"
Her smile faded and she looked up at me with a confused face. "I didn't know I was?"
"Well, you don't have to... But it'd be nice."
"Um, okay... Where will I sleep? I'm not taking your bed from you... I could just sleep on the couch."
"Or, you could just sleep in here with me. Louis always wakes up early, anyways. I have the interview with that show tomorrow at 10:30 so I have to get up early, too. Do you have to go to practise tomorrow?"
"Okay, yeah, that's fine. And no. Tomorrow's the 'rest day' where the gym is closed for the day and everyone takes a break."
I smilied, glad that I'd be able to come home and spend time with her. "Great. Do you have clothes for tomorrow?"
"Yeah... I'm a bit of an 'over-packer' as my mother says." She said with a laugh.
"Okay, well, I'm going to get changed real quick. I'll be right back," I said to her as I stepped into my walk in closet and began changing. I just threw on a pair of sweats and socks, not bothering to wear a shirt, and stepped out.
Rue was laying down on my bed reading something on her phone and smiling. She must've heard me because she sat up, eyes still on the phone, and began reading something, but the moment she looked at me, her voice came to a stop. She just sat there with her mouth open, staring at me.
I have to admit, I began to feel a little self-concious. "What's wrong?" I asked as I looked down at my body and hands to see if there was something on me. There wasn't.
Rue had finally snapped out of it and her face became the reddest I've ever seen on her. "Sorry... I just made everything extremely awkward... Anyway, there's pictures of us all over Twitter and Yahoo! and everything! It's crazy!"
She got up and walked towards me showing me the pictures. "There's going to be a report on TMZ in about five minutes. Want to watch it?" I asked her.
"Yeah, sure. Want to watch it with the boys? I feel rude since I basically ran away from them."
"Okay." I said to her and made a grab for her hand and lead her out to the living room.
All the boys were on the couches, watching the TMZ report already. Niall was first to notice us. "There they are! TMZ has been talking of you two for the past five minutes already!"
Niall signaled for Louis to turn the T.V. up a little and he did. "Well, looks like Harry Styles is now off the market! Dissapointment is in the air for the teenage girls everywhere. He was found taking a the UK's Olympic Gymnast for the next games, Rue Rotar, out for dinner at Gordon Ramsey's resturant in London and after the were in the car, they KISSED! Yes, they did, ladies and gents! It was quite the liplock, too! Pictures are all over the internet and the hate for Ms. Rotar has already begun. Twitter mentions have said "agt2362: He could do better than her.", "Heraldo2045: She's so serious! Why is he with that!?", and, the meanest, in my opinion, "DirectionerUnite: I'd rather he be with Caroline." There is a nationwide trend on twitter, #Harue. Well, looks like we have a pet name for Britain's Biggest Couple already! Harry Styles nor Rue Rotar have neither confirmed nor denied the fact that they are together, but by that lip lock, how can anyone say they aren't? That's all for now, over to you Jamesion."
The picture of the reporter and Rue and I in the background kissing dissolved. Everyone was silent. Louis had turned the T.V down and all the boys turned their bodies so they were facing Rue and I. "So, are you going to confirm it tomorrow on the Jeremy Kyle Show?" Liam asked.
"Well, there's no denying it now."
"Yeah, you're right... So, are you staying here Rue?" Zayn asked. It was the first time he'd spoken up since I'd been here, which was expected since he was rather shy.
"Yeah. What time is it, anyway?"
"It's 11:45, why?"
Everybody grew silent once more. I figured Rue was just as tired as I was so I spoke up next. "Well, it's starting to getting late... Ready for bed Rue?"
She looked up at me and simply shook her head. We said our goodnight's to the boy's and made our way to my room. We curled up under the sheets, my arms wrapped around her and her small body curling into my chest. Her being in my arms was perfect. Her back was facing my chest and while it was pitch black, I could still see her outline. She was perfect. Perfect for me, at least.
