Pitch Slapped

Delany was a freshman in high school and orientation was where clubs recruited the 'freshies'. Many clubs asked for her to come join but they all seemed to dorky like the chess club or book club. She didn't want to be a nerd like in middle school. She wanted to stand out, shine. That's when one specific club caught her eye, not just because of the guy recruiting with his brunette curls. Just the idea of it all. Being noticed.


35. Follow the Flowers

I woke up to the sound of Perrie, "Zayn be quite their going to hear you." Perrie whispered. I looked around and I could make out a figure coming in through the window. I'm guessing Zayn. He walked over towards Perrie's bed. They whispered to one another and then it went silent. They must have fallen asleep. How cute. I looked at the clock on my nightstand, one o'clock in the morning shoot me.

I got up and walked out of the dorm. I went into the lobby and sat on the couch. I looked around the room and something at the door caught my eye, their was a piece of paper on the door. I got up and walked to the door and pulled the paper off. I scanned it and saw my name, it was a letter:


           Words can not even describe my feelings for you. I have liked you ever since the first day we met at freshmen orientation. You always bring a smile to my face. So, I'm done with being friends. 



What? Harry's done? I scanned the letter again. I flipped the paper over and he wrote on it, "Follow the flowers."

Follow the flowers? What on Earth does that mean? I glanced around the room and then looked outside. I opened the door and it was a warm Autumn night. I looked at the ground and saw sunflowers. My favorite flowers. I picked up the first one up and it said Will on a little piece of paper.

I walked around and couldn't find the second one. I mean why would he just give me one? What does Will mean? Then an idea came to me. I walked to the quad at the table we would always sit at and found a flower I looked at the paper and it said You.

The third one I had a good idea of where it would be I walked to the big oak tree at the front of the school where we first met at his booth. I saw it under the tree, it said Be. Will You Be?

I walked around campus and found the fourth by the theater, it said My.

Where on earth would the fifth one be?

I walked around campus searching high and low. I must have looked like a crazy woman walking arond in my pj's. Then a bright yellow color caught my eye by the Starbuck's. I walked over and found the last follow Girlfriend?. I put all the words together, Will You Be My Girlfriend? I scanned around for Harry and couldn't see him, so I decided to call it a night and go back to my dorm.

I cut through the little park on the way back, it was a quicker way to get to the girl's dorms. I looked at my flowers and smiled. I couldn't wait to see Harry in the morning. I looked back up and saw Harry by the fountain in the center of the park, he was holding a dozen roses. I walked up to him and smiled.

"So what will it be?" He asked.

"Yes." I answered. He leaned in and kissed me. I dropped my flowers and wrapped my arms around his neck. I pulled away and blushed as I picked up the sunflowers, then he handed me the roses. We slowly started walking back to the dorms.

"How did you know sunflowers were my favorite?" I asked. 

"I guessed," He smiled, "And you remind me of the sun, happy, bright, and dangerous if you get too close."

"Oh, I'm dangerous?" I laughed.

"I like dangerous." He laughed too.

"So, how did you know I would find all the flowers?" I questioned.

"You're a smart girl, I figured you would assume all the places we've been together." He answered.

"And me finding you in the park?"

"Well, I knew once you got to the Starbuck's you would be tired and assume I would see you tomorrow so you would take the shortcut home." He replied.

"How did you know I was awake?" I asked.

"Oh, that." Harry laughed, "Zayn goes every night to cuddle and fall asleep with Perrie so I told him to make a lot of noise trying to get through the window."

I playfully slapped Harry in the arm.

"What was that for?" Harry laughed.

"I thought they were going to have sex or something! Thank the lord it's just cuddling."  I told him.

"Oh, well you never know." Harry smirked.

I hit Harry again, "That's disgusting!" 

He laughed.

"Well I'm going to go get some sleep now." I told him. 

Harry leaned in and kissed me on the cheek, "Sweet dreams."

I blushed and walked into the lobby carrying my sunflowers and roses to my dorm. I quietly slipped in and set the flowers on the table and went to bed.
