Makayla was just a normal 17 year old girl living a normal life in Maryland with her grandparents until she gets curious, and wants to know more about her parents. Its revealed to her that her mother died a few days after Makayla was born (how?), and that her father has a new family in London. He doesn't know about her.

Makayla decides shes tired of living a lie, so she catches a flight to London where she unexpectedly meets a boy who changes her entire outlook on life.


7. Heating up.

Makayla dreamt of Harry that night. Not in a weird, stalkerish way. In an innocent way.

In her dream she was walking in a park. She was in a sleeveless shirt and shorts, and it was cold. Just as she wrapped her arms around herself, Harry appeared behind her with his jacket, and placed it on her shoulders. He kissed the top of her head and walked away.

When she woke up, there was no hesitation in her getting right out of bed and getting dressed.  ( Downstairs, Harry, Niall, Liam and the other 2 guys were at the kitchen table. Harry looked up when Makayla walked in.

"Oh, Makayla, this is Louis and Zayn." He said, pointing to each unfamiliar face and naming them. "Hi." She said, smiling. They both smiled back.

"So, Makayla." Niall said, walking over to her. "We're trying to decide what to do, since it's really hot out today. Any suggestions?"

All the guys turned to look at her. "Um... well..." She said, looking around. "What about going to the beach?"

They thought for a minute before Louis said, "Yeah, but the closest beach is hours from here."

"True." Harry said. Makayla shrugged and leaned against the wall.

"Hey, what about swimming in the pool out back?" Liam offered. They all agreed and went upstairs to change.

As Makayla was wondering why it took them this long to decide to go swim in their backyard, Harry turned and said to her, "You can come with, if you'd like. We'll be out back."

Makayla looked over at him. "Thanks." She said, smiling at him. He smiled back and left.

It took Makayla all but 10 minutes to decide she would go. She went back upstairs to her room and put on one of the very few bathing suits she brought with her, as well as a cover up and some shoes. ( Once dressed, she grabbed a bag and put a towel, sunglasses, and her ipod inside. Then, she went back downstairs, found the door to the back area, and let herself out.

When she stepped out, she found herself in a shaded area set up with lounge chairs, tables, a grill, and a mini fridge. A walkway led over to the pool, where Zayn, Niall, and Louis were splashing around. Harry and Liam were both on lounge chairs by the edge of the pool.

Makayla was just setting her things down on a chair under the covered area when Harry called out to her. "Makayla! Come over here with us!" He was smiling at her. She blushed and was thankful he couldn't tell from a distance. "Okay." She replied, walking over to him. She put down her stuff on the chair next to him and sat down.

"So, yesturday was really fun, yeah?" He said to her. She smiled.

"Yeah, it was." She agreed. Liam looked confused. "What did you guys do?" He asked Harry. "We went to linner." He replied.

"Huh?" Liam raised his eyebrows and Harry and Makayla laughed. "It's nothing." Makayla said to him, smiling. "Doesn't seem like nothing." Liam mumbled. At that, he got up and jumped into the pool.

For a few moments, they didn't talk. Makayla stretched out on the lounger and moved her sunglasses from the top of her head to cover her eyes. It was a gorgeous day, the sun was shining brightly despite the past few rainier days. There wasn't a cloud in sight.

"I think I'm going to take a dip." Makayla said to Harry now. He nodded and smiled slightly, briefly. Makayla took off her coverup and sunglasses and tossed them both back onto the chair behind her. When she reached the edge of the pool, she dived in. After swimming a few laps she broke surface and got out, returning to her seat.

As she walked back towards the chairs, she noticed Harry looking at her - staring, actually.

"What?" She asked him, blushing, but smiling despite it. Harry blinked. "Oh. Nothing." He replied, looking away from her.

Makayla smiled to herself and plugged in her earbuds, letting The Beatles send her to sleep under the sun.
