Harry's P.O.V.
" So Maddison, what company are you currently working for?" Louis asked. Maddison was staying with us for a week, and I had no idea. Louis had no idea of the previous events that happened between us, so he sat us down next to each other.
Grace looked bed the moon as she listened to her best friend explain," Well I'm doing the new collection for TopShop and then I go back to my managing company who has set up a whole project for me to do here in London for sports wear."
" Oh cool! What kind of sports wear?" I asked, hoping that the awkward purple monster between us would fade away.
I was wrong. She answered me coldly," Soccer, or as you call it football. Sorry I spent 6 months over in the US. It's taking some time to get used to being back here," the last two sentences were aimed toward Louis and Grace. I awkwardly drank my water, not wanted the tension to be visible.
Grace took a sideways glance at Lou and he nodded.
I hated their secret communication.
" Grace, can I talk to you for a second?" Louis said.
" Of course babe."
Louis apologized to us both and told us they would be right back, giving me an encouraging look before he left.
An awkward and anger filled silence filled the room, and before even knowing what I was saying I said," You have an amazing voice."
She suddenly looked up from her salad, mouth hanging open," You can't possibly think I'm going to believe that's the reason you were waiting me."
I laughed," That's the truth love, I do apologize though-"
" Save it," she interrupted," I know what guys like you are like. There are guys like Louis and guys like you. Your a jerk and a pervert. I don't know why they put you on stage next to a guy like Lou ad get all the solos."
" Now wait just a second. What does my work have anything to do with this Maddison? Your insulting things irrelevant to the topic. I apologized, can't we just move on? Try to start over? Or is Miss Perfect too perfect for second chances?"
She gasped at my words and I rolled my eyes at her dramaticness," I am not miss perfect thank you. Or would you like the contradict since you've seen my body?"
I scoffed," The body hides the personality."
" That's it. I'm done," she took her napkin off her lap and left. Good ridence to her.

Lottie's P.O.V.
I snuck out of the house that night. I was on strict bed rest, but I figured a little walk wouldn't matter. David lived about two and a half miles from my house and I was sure I could make it there by sunset.
I was wrong.
Shortly after I started it became dark and I began to wonder if I should just wait till tomorrow. I decided to head back, trying one more time to call him.
My legs shook as I walked and I was so tired, so tired. Each step I took required more effort then the last.
When I was almost to my house I took a break on my neighbors lawn.
I watched the night sky, and the cold wind whistled through me as I did.
I also watched as a white truck approached. It didnt really bother me until it slowly stopped in front of me," Need a lift babe?"
It was a man in his forties at least and the fact that he called me babe didnt make me feel good at all. Stranger danger, come on Lot what did they teach you!!!!
" Im home thank you," I said. I stood up and walked to my neighbors from porch, the man still starring at me.
When Brian (yes the same Brian as before) opened the door I didn't hesitate I just walked right in," Shut the door, shut the door!" I whisper screamed at him.
" Lottie? What are you doing here? What's going on?"
" I was on my way home and I took a break outside and sat on some of the rocks out there and that creepy white truck pulled up and I swear the guys was... He was....." I couldn't find the words. I stood there like an idiot crying my eyes out.
" Brian?! Is everything ok??"
" It's fine mom! Just a friend! Hey Lottie look your safe. Ill go check if the car is still out there and we will wait till it leaves. Ill walk you home then."
" No," I said wiping away my ridiculous tears," You don't have to do that. David-"
" David's not talking to your right now, everyone knows. Which leads me to my next question; where were you coming home from?"
He was close to me, but I didn't care. I was so warned by his presence that the cold from before as melting away," To David's. I didnt make it though."
" you shouldn't be tiring yourself out like that. By the way we had a prayer service for you at school and half of the girls were crying by the end."
" Oh...." I started. There isn't much more to say to that," Did David go?"
He nodded," We all did."
I exhaled but not enough were he could tell I was frustrated. He left and I stood there awkwardly looking around. There were photos of Brian and his mom all over the house. One in particular caught my attention. It was more like a family tree project, I glanced at it but didnt have time because Brian came back and said," Alright he's gone we can go."
I didnt stop him this time, I let him walk me home.

Grace's P.O.V.
" What do you think of Maddision and Harry together?" Lou asked me. He had pulled me aside to a small hallway to the restrooms. I was up against the wall and he was in front of me.
" I don't know Lou, like I said Mads isn't one for relationships and they don't seem to like each other too much."
" I know Harry likes her, brotherly silent communication skills. I can pretty much read his mind.
" really?" I was surprised at this, I thought Harry was into girls that were considered normal, but then again what guy wouldn't want to date a model?
Louis crossed his arms but took a couple steps forward," Um yeah! I mean this is Harry we are talking about. Beautiful is his number one turn on. And the fact that she's extremely fit isn't half bad either...."
I raised my eyebrows at him and then turned around to act like I was hurt by this.
" Aw come on babe! You know your always going to be the fittest girl to me. She may be fit but your perfect in EVERY way."
I blushed and then laughed," Im not so "fit" right now though Lou. I'm two months in now."
He smiled and put his hands on my belly," I can't wait."
He leaned in and we kissed. We kissed and kissed until I heard a familiar voice," Guys, Maddison left."
