12. Chapter 12


My mum and I drove home in silence for a little while till she turned to me and asked "Why her Harry? Why do you like Hailey, what made you like her that fast?"

"You know that feeling when you see something or do something and you know that that’s what you want and it was meant to be?" I explained

"Like love at first sight?" My mum questioned

"Yes, exactly." I said lowering my head watching as my fingers fiddled with each other.

"Well I can’t be mad at you, if you really have feelings for her, don’t give up." she said placing her hand on my knee.

"I know but mum she won’t even talk to me, I screwed up" I said as a lump started forming in my throat.

My mum looked at me questionably waiting for me to continue.

"I answered her phone, she had left to talk to Niall and her phone went off, so I picked it up and answered it so I could pass on the message to her." I said pausing to clear my throat. "But when I told her what I did and what Jake had said, and then I told her that Jake was mean and that I just didn’t want her to get hurt by him." I paused to take another breath holding back my tears.

"Well, you are here to get your mind off things, so we won’t talk about Hailey anymore, you are going to enjoy these two weeks here and when you go back you are going to start fresh and carry on with the concert." she stated.

I nodded in agreement, when we finally pulled up to our house.

I opened the car door heading to the back seat to get my things.

"Hey Harry." my mum called "I'm going out tomorrow, why don’t you ask that Val girl you met to that dinner date you were talking about" she said with a wink.

I shook my head in agreement "Ya, alright, sounds good" maybe hanging out with Val could be a good thing. She can help my get my mind off of things.

I got in the house and proceeded to my room pulling out my phone to call Val

The phone rang twice before a nervous voice answered


"Hey babe, it’s Harry."

"Oh hey Harry" she said excitedly. "What’s up?"

"Oh nothing, I was just wondering..." I trailed off "would you... erm... maybe like to go to dinner T-tomorrow" I asked Smooth Harry, very smooth NOT! why the hell and I so nervous, I was wiping my hands on my pants trying to wipe the sweat off, which only made them sweat more.

"Ya, sure!" she said

"Great, I'll pick you up at 7?"

"Sounds like a date" she said with a giggle. I chuckled softly. She told me where she lived and we Hung up. 

I looked at my clock it was already 9pm and I was exhausted.

I curled up on my old bed, oh how I missed lying in this bed, and it is more comfy than those stupid hotel beds I have been sleeping on for the past two months. I let out I huge breath are closed my eyes falling asleep in no time


I woke the next day at noon. I got up off my bed stretching my arms above my head and heading down to the kitchen where I found my mum sitting on a stool at the counter drinking a cup a tea and reading a book "Good afternoon sleepily head" she said taking another sip of her tea.

I put my arms around her hugging her from behind giving her a kiss on the cheek "You know, even if I meet a girl and fall in love, I will still always love you just as much" I said to her resting my head on her back.

"Ok Harry, what do you want?" she asked. She asked that question every time my sister and I were nice to her.

I put my hands up in surrender. "I want nothing, I promise, can a son tell his mum he loves her? I have been gone for two months and I missed you." I explained.

"Well I will always love you too" she said getting up from her seat and walking out of the kitchen.

"Where are you going?" I asked

"I’m going out to do some errands, I'll be back later" she called over her shoulder.

"I walked over to the fridge and poured myself a glass of orange juice heading over to the living room to watch some T.V. Might as well lounge around the house till I have to get ready to go.


A few hours had passed when I decided I should get ready. It was 5:30 which gave my more than enough time. I hoped into the shower letting the hot water hit my skin; it was so nice to just relax, in my own home for once.

I got out of the shower and wrapped myself up in a towel heading to my room.

After a few minutes of looking at why close I had I finally picked out an outfit. I had a pair of Black skinny jeans on with a black button up shirt with the top three buttons undone.

I gave my hair a shake like I usually do and just let it fall into its own place.

I had a half an hour left till 7 which gave me about fifteen minutes till I actually had to leave, I logged on to twitter and as soon as the page loaded all I could see were a bunch of hate messages.. And they were all directed to Hailey, oh God, what did I do now? she doesn’t deserve this, I read through my mentions all hate that was tagged to me, but bout Hailey, okay enough was enough, she wasn't the one to hurt me, if anything I hurt her first, and this is going to hurt her more, oh God Harry why are you so fucking stupid. I quickly switched to the home page on twitter spotting tweets from all the boys directed to Hailey, and them saying how sorry they were and sticking up for her, and how they were going to see them?... Great, I leave and now they get to see Hailey.

I sent a tweet out to Hailey and all the rest of the so called fans, I know they are not all like that, but I’m just to mad that people would say such cruel things

@Harry_Styles I'm fine... don't worry about me and to all those getting mad at @Hailey_Bee94 Go to Hell, it was not her fault, it was mine...

Was why I sent out, I slammed my laptop closed and headed out the door to pick up Val.

I arrived at her house and hoped out of the car greeting her at the door.

"You look very handsome tonight" she said looking my up and down

"as do yourself" I said taking her hand and placing a kiss on it as she blushed slightly I smiled as I took another look at her, she was wearing a short black cocktail dress which made her legs look really long, he had black flats on and her blonde hair was curled on little ringlets. I let her to the car opening her side of the door and gently closing it once she was in. I walked over to the driver’s side and got in.

We drove in silence while music played in the background I started singing to and Ed Sheeran song that came on and Val joined in. wow she has such an amazing voice. 

The song ended just as we pulled up to the restraint. It was a nice little French restraint that I used to love to go to with my parents.

We took our seats at the table making some small talk getting to know each other more. At the end of the night I drive Val home. We stopped at her house and I led her to the door.

“I had fun tonight” She said

“Ya so did I” I said, I actually enjoyed myself, just having a nice dinner just getting to know each other. She was the oldest of three, she moved here from Toronto to go to school, she had always wanted to live in the UK so when she had the chance she moved, she had the same interest in music as I did, her parents split up when she was little, she wanted to be a lawyer, she loves traveling and doing sports. I learned so much about her tonight.

I smiled at her and leaned over to give her a kiss on the cheek. “I’ll see you around” I whispered in her ear before backing away.

“Sounds good” she said with a smile.

I turned away and headed back to my car.


The rest of the two weeks went by so fast, I spent most of my time with Val, we did a lot together, and talked a lot, tonight was my last night till I had to go back and meet the boys in LA. Val had invited me over to her house to watch a movie. I was getting ready to head out when my mum came in.

“Going out with Val again?” she asked.

“Yeup” I replied.

“What about Hailey?” she questioned.

I had forgotten about Hailey. I was having fun being home and Val had taken my mind off her.

“Well Val and I are just friends, I can never find someone better than Hailey, but you wanted me to enjoy my time back home, and that is what I did” I said with a shrug.

“Well okay then, have fun” she said turning around and heading out of my room.

I finally finished getting ready giving myself a onceover in the mirror. I had a pair of blue keens on with a grey t-shirt.

I arrived at Val’s she answered the door giving me a hug. She was wearing a pair of white skinny jeans and a tight black tank top. “How are you?” I asked

“Great!” she replied in her perky voice. “And you?” she asked.

“I’m fine” I said with a huff “gotta go back on tour tomorrow”

“Oh, right I forgot!” she said sounding a bit disappointed “Well let’s just enjoy tonight.” She grabbed my hand and dragged me into the living room. I took a seat on the sofa watching Val as she put a DVD in the player.

“What are we watching anyway?” I questioned

“Love actually” she answered. Oh my favorite movie.

She put the movie on and sat down next to me. The movie began and Val rested in close to my side putting her head on my shoulder. I put my arm around her and she rested her head on my chest.

About half way through the movie Val started to kiss my neck. My breath began to quicken at her sudden actions, I turned to look at her grabbing her face in my hands and smashing my lips onto hers. I glided my tongue across her bottom lip and she quickly responded. Soon after we were having a make out session, she stopped and looked at me both of us trying to ketch our breath. She grabbed my hand leading me to her room kicking open her door her room was very small but big enough to have a queen sized bed and a small desk. She started kissing me again this time it was her who deepened the kiss. We were still standing by her door so I picked her up still not breaking apart she wrapped my legs around my waist and I carried her over to her bed gently placing her on her bed I rested my hands on the bed on either side of her head. She started tugging at the hem of my shirt and I swiftly pulled it off, and that’s when it hit me. I realized I never really liked Val I realized that the reason why I was with her was to get my mind off of Hailey, she was the first person to come along and fill that empty spot, Val wasn’t who I was imagining I was kissing. I had been thinking about Hailey this whole time and I lost her, she will never speak to me again. Oh god, what the hell am I doing? I stopped kissing Val and sat next to her on the bed furiously running my hands through my hair.

“What’s wrong?” Val asked a little disappointed.

“I’m sorry” I said pacing her as a tear ran down my cheek. “But I just can’t do this, I messed up, I like somebody else, and I messed everything up with her, and she is already taken. I’m sorry I just can’t do it” I explained. Val huffed but nodded.

“You really like her huh?” she said

“No I don’t like her." I paused to look at Val "I love her."
