My Love For Who

Beth, a young, confident girl, never had a liking for the boyband, One Direction. Never met them, never planned to, and never wanted to. But what will happen when she moves to London with her dad and meets a certain guy on the plane ride there? Will she confront her hatred to him? Will they meet again? Will her feelings change for them? Will teasing begin and competitions for love start? It can be hard to be around such friendly people and never grow feelings. Can she just stay friends..even with benefits? Or more..?


16. Afraid

After we got home everyone was pretty tired so we all split up and went to our beds. I changed into an old soccer t-shirt of mine and some short plaid pajama shorts. I laid there trying to sleep but I couldnt. I decided to go downstairs to get a drink of water, When i stepped out of my room it was dark. the hallway was nearly pitchblack. I was feeling around the wall for a light switch when I heard something. I froze and listened until someone ran into me and knocked me down. I heard a gasp and I leaned up against the wall nearly about to cry. Then the light came on and it was Harry. He was shirtless and just in his boxers. He was rubbing his eyes when he saw me on the floor. 

"What are you doing?" He asked with a confused look on his face. I stood up and ran and hugged him. He stiffened and was shocked at first but hugged me back. He let go of me and looked own at me.

"Are you alright?" He was still confused. "Yeah i just got freaked out and didn't know where the light switch was." He smiled and said well here it is," he pointed. "Now I'm going to the restroom and going back to bed. Goodnight." I quietly said,"goodnight Harry." And with that he nodded and walked toward the bathroom.

I went down the stairs knowing where all of the lights were now.When i got a drink I took a big gulp. I  heard a noise at the window. I put down the glass and slowly walked towards the stairs. I turned off all of the lights and then I felt like someone was behind me. I ran up the stairs and stopped at the top. I was shaking and I didn't want to go to my room. I wanted to be with someone. I looked over at the bathroom door, it was open. I guess Harry went back to his bed. He's probably still awake. Maybe i could go talk to him. I walk over to his room and i knock. I open the door to more darkness. I stand there not knowing what to do. I don't want to scare him and have him scream and wake everyone up, but i don't want to be alone. I'm already here so I might as well try something. 

"Harry...?" I said so quietly that he probably didn't even hear me. I take a step closer,"Harry? I'm afraid."  

I hear his groan. I don't want him to get mad. I'll just go to bed. Thus is going to be a long night. I slowly turn around towards the door.

"Beth?" I stop, "Harry? Yeah its me." He moans and sits up turning on a light by his bed. He shakes his hair and combs it up and to the side with his fingers and looks at me. He then yawns and says,

"Is something wrong?" 

I stay standing and say, "I couldn't go to sleep so i went downstairs-"

"Yes, i remember." He grinned quickly.

"Yeah, so when i was coming upstairs i heard a noise and i felt like someone was behind me. I'm too afraid to sleep and I didn't want to be alone.."

He just looks at me.


I feel uncomfortable."So.....hi." I smiled a bit waiting for a response.

He just keeps looking at me.

Then finally a smile breaks from his face and he scoots over and lifts up the covers, "Get in"

I smile big and get in next to him.

I lay on my side, my face towards him. He covers me up and lays on his back. He sighs loudly. "Is everything okay?" I ask. "Yeah, I'm just thinking." He says while staring at the ceiling. He looked really beautiful. Just how his eyes were sleepily open and his messy curls were untamed. His face was calm but there was something on his mind. 

"About?" I ask curiously. "Just a girl." His eyes wander up at the ceiling. He looks confused. "Do you wanna talk about her?" I want to hear who this girl is. I hope its who i think it is. I'm staring at his face trying to figure out what he's thinking. Harry turns to his side where his face is toward me. He takes a deep breath and looks in my eyes.

He sighs and says, "How can you just show a girl you like her.... How can you tell that she likes you back?" He closes his eyes. I just look at him. He says nothing else, I suppose he is waiting for my input.

"I'm not quite sure." I pause, "I think it depends on the situation and the relationship you have with.. um, the girl." He opens his eyes, but remains silent. I keep going. "you might need to make gestures of your liking for her or if you're close enough you might never even need to tell her." 

"His eyes widen for a split second but then he starts to grow a smirk. "Thanks Beth." He looks in my eyes and smiles bigger. 

"You're welcome Harry. And just remember girls are clever, I bet she knows." I smile back. He nods. I've never really seen this side of Harry and it was really nice. We lay there and just watch each other until Harry says, "Alright I'm getting tired, it's bedtime." I giggle and agree. I start to turn away from him and he says, "You know it can be scary in this flat." I stop and look at him. He laughs and scoots closer to me. I smile and scoot closer to him. I rest my head on his chest and he leans over me to turn off the lamp. He puts his arm around me and pulls me even closer to where there isn't even an inch separating our bodies. I feel his warm body and I smell his familiar scent. Its so comforting to me and smells amazing. I inhale and smile. I'm at an all time high as of this moment.
