25. Chapter 25



I rolled my eyes “I think I can live” I smiled before bolting into the house. God I like doing that the way he storms after me, always leave ‘em wanting more but as much as I wanted to be with him, I didn’t want to move along too fast, I really don’t want to loose my chance, something inside me keeps telling me not to fall for his ways, I shouldn’t believe it but its hard not to think about his past and as much as he makes me feel so safe and how he says he’s going to be here for me I still have that little part of doubt.

Harry came walking into the house giving me a glare before taking off his shoes and walking further into the house “Hello Harry.” I heard my mom say to Harry from the kitchen

“Hi ma’am” Harry replied I walked into the kitchen to see Harry walk into my room.

“What Happened?” my mom asked.

“Honestly, I have no clue.” I replied with a shrug. “He was fine a minute ago.”

“Well don’t just stand here, go talk to him.” I mom said pushing him to my room.

I knocked on the door to my room… wait why am I knocking on my own door? I thought to myself. “Its room do what you please.” Harry chuckled.

Slowly I opened the door. Harry was sitting on the edge of my bed with my leather book and a pencil in his hand as he scribbled on one of the empty pages. “Um… what are you doing?” I asked taking a seat next to him. Harry laid on his back holding the book over his face still scribbling on the page.

“Sorry I thought of something, and I needed to write it down.” He shrugged “But you can read it… yet.”

“Alrighty then…” I said getting up and sitting at my desk taking a blank paper out and just let my pencil take over the paper as I aimlessly doodled on the page. Harry came over ripping the page out of my book. I looked at him and raised my eyebrow “Did you just rip a page out of my book!”

Harry smirked “I didn’t want you to see what I wrote.” He said pitting the book down beside me “What are you drawing?”

I looked down at the page I was drawing on, I had managed a sketch I chuckled at the drawing of Harry lying on his back hands in the air holding my book at his face “This.” I said handing him my drawing.

Harry chuckled walking over to my door taking the roll of tape with him “There.” He said taping the drawing to my door with the rest of my drawings.

“Harry?” I asked nervously

“What is it?” Harry asked stepping closer to me

I sighed “I don’t want to take this too fast.”

“It’s alright love.” Harry said wrapping me in his arms “I’ll wait till you are ready.”

“Are you sure?” I asked looking up to Harry who was already looking down at me “I mean you have been waiting for so long already.”

Harry smiled giving me a kiss on the forehead “It’s alright, because this time I know I don’t have to worry about someone else having you.” He said

“It’s just hard you know, I live here and you live all the way in London, your always traveling and on the road and I’m just here.” I stated

“Well Sam and Niall do it?” Harry asked.

Yea nut Niall doesn’t have a player image I thought to myself. “But that’s different.”

“How is that different?” Harry asked letting go of me

I walked over and sat on my bed pulling out my laptop and going on the internet “Look, you still have a player profile, Niall on the other hand has the image of innocent, people go after you so bad, this is what holds me back Harry, I just cant take the media you get.” I said “It’s just going to hurt me more” I huffed

“Look,” Harry said closing my laptop and lifting my chin so I would look him in the eyes “If I can prove to you that the person the media portrays me to be is not the real me, then will you settle?”

I nodded my head in agreement “I want to trust you believe me.”  I smiled, Harry has made me feel so wanted and safe, I mean yes he flirted with me since the day we met but now it seems like we really cares.

“Good.” Harry smiled “But can I still do this?” Harry asked cupping my face in his hands while placing his lips on mine, our lips moved in sync when Harry begged for entrance, I smiled trying not to give in “mmm, Hailey…” he begged pulling away “You.” He glared “Are no fun.”

I shrugged opening my laptop again to go on twitter.

Everything was filled with tweets about Harry and where he had gone “Your Fans are worried about you.” I chuckled

“Hmm? What?” Harry asked sitting beside me to look at my screen

@1Dlover_ where is my @Harry_Styles !! You haven’t tweeted in days!

@1DNeews @Harry_Styles is taking a vacation to an unknown place, I presume same place @NiallOfficial is which means he’s with @HaileyBee94

“Oh great, I don’t even want to check my notifications.” I sighed. “Thanks to you.”

“Oh my God, I’m sorry Hailey, I didn’t mean for this to happen.” Harry said while shaking his head.

“It’s nothing you can prevent I shrugged “They are just looking out for you.” I chuckled “Believe me, I was one I them, well I wouldn’t send hate, ever actually.”

“No really, you didn’t ever do anything, you shouldn’t have to go through this shit, I dint want to put you through it, you have gone through enough, you don’t need to put up with mine too, you should never ever have to go through it, I see what Danielle and Eleanor go through and it gets to them some times, it’s just going to get herder, I want to protect you not make you more hurt.” Harry said running his hands through his hair.

“Oh shut up.” I said getting off my bed “It’s fine, really I don’t go on twitter often any ways, its been going on since the summer, I can handle it, really” I said giving him a convincing smile.

“Knock, Knock.” Someone said opening my door. I turned around to see Sam and Niall standing in the doorway

“Sam!” I said with a smile

“Hey, Niall and I came to hang out.” She said with a smile

“Well come on in.” I said inviting Sam into my room. Niall came over and give me a hug.

“You need to talk to Sam.” He whispered. Great something happened I thought to myself.

I nodded and turned to Sam “Hey Say, can I talk, maybe go into town for a bit?” I asked

“Wait, what are we supposed to do?” Harry asked.

“I don’t know, my mom is home and my brother is probably playing COD in his room or something go hang with him for like an hour or so, we’ll be back.” I said grading Sam’s wrist and pulling her out of my room.

Next thing I knew Niall and Harry were running out of my room heading towards Tyler’s “Oh, Tyler!” Niall yelled “Guess who’s come to visit.”

“That doesn’t sound creepy as all.” My brother yelled back sarcastically.

“That was the point mate.” Niall said jogging up to his room and opening the door.

“Dude! Put a shirt on nobody wants to see that!” Harry yelled. Typical Tyler I thought rolling my eyes.

“We need to talk” I said putting my boots on and tugging Sam out the door.

 “So, what’s up?” I asked when I got into my car.

“I don’t thing I can take it any longer.” Sam said breaking down.

“Take what?” I asked, “Is it Niall?” I asked frantically

“No, no Niall is fine.” She chuckled fiddling with her hands in her lap.

“Then what is it?” I asked curiously.

“It’s my dad.” She said, I nodded in understanding.

“What happened this time?”

“Well everything was fine, he had been gone for a few days and he came back last night and started just freaking out at my mom for no reason, he was going on a rampage of swearing, I don’t know what to do Hailz, I don’t understand why my mom is still there, I cant stand him, Niall noticed and he took me out that night, we got back and my dad freaked on my, he just started yelling at me telling me that everything was my fault.” She said tears streaming down her face as she tried whipping them away.

I clenched the steering wheel with my hands, why the fuck would someone do that, it makes me so mad Sam is practically my sister and I hate it when she tells me what has been going on with her family, it sickens me.

“He tolled me I was the reason why they had no money, and that I was a pathetic daughter, the worst part is, Niall was right there and her heard it all.” She sobbed. I stopped the car at the community park.

“Look Niall loves you, he was the one that wanted me to talk to you, he’s just worried, and look I may not be good at giving advice, but you know I’ll always listen and you are always welcome at my house, your almost 18 and you have a few more months till Uni then you are out of here, I cant say I have even been in your place and I’m sorry, but you are not alone and Niall and I will be here for you, same as Harry and the rest of the boys, along with my family, got it?” I said giving her a hug.

“You have no idea how much this means to me.” Sam said sitting up and whipping her tears away.

“Now why don’t we spend some time together let Niall and Harry and Tyler have some guy time.” I said putting the car in driver and leaving the park to go into town.

“So what’s going on between you and Jake?” Sam asked

“We decided to just be friends.” I shrugged.

“You know what this means right!” Sam said excitedly

“No Sam I’m not going to be doing anything with Harry, not right now at least, its too soon.” I said shaking my head.

“Sooo..” Sam said wiggling her eyebrows.

“What!?” I asked, Sam gave me a flat look “Ugh! No, God Sam!” I yelled

“Well have you don’t anything?” she asked I small smile formed on my lips and my cheeks heated up. “Awe” she cooed “Is he a good kisser?” Sam winked

“You bounce back fast.” I chuckled

“Niall is a good kisser.” She stared, now she is doing that just to annoy me.

“Yes he was good OK, happy now?” I said turning into the tiny mall that our Town had, it only had like two decent clothing stores, a small Tim Horton’s a few electronic Shoppe’s and a book store, but it was where Sam and I liked to go, not many teens our age hung out here though it was mostly little kids and there parents or kids in the eighth grade that thought they were better than everyone else.

“I’m very happy.” Sam said hopping out of the car. I hoped out and locked the door making out way to the mall.



“So do you think we should head back to my place now?” I asked looking at my watch “It’s almost dinner and I think Jake’s family is coming over.”

Sam almost choked on her tea when I said Jake’s name “Jake?” she asked.

“Yea, we are still friends, he said he’ll try and become friends with Harry, and besides his family is friends with mine.” I shrugged picking up my purse. Sam followed suite picking up a book that she bought and wee headed out the door.

“Looks like Jake’s family is already here.” I said when I pulled into the driveway. Sam and I got out and headed into the house.

“Dude! That’s gorse!” I heard someone yell

“HOT, HOT, HOT!” someone else said then the sound of water running from the tap and a bunch of laughing

I turned to Sam who just shrugged and we cautiously walked around the corner into the kitchen. Tyler had his head under the tap, Niall was practically on the ground laughing, his face was beat red while Jake and Harry were leaning over the counter with a blender. “Um..” I coughed. Both Harry and Jake whipped their heads around.

“Oh hey Hailz.” Jake said sending a slight wave “Sam.” He nodded

“What are you doing?” I asked gesturing to Tyler who was panting like a dog and Niall who clearly couldn’t stand up straight.

“We are playing can you play this “ Jake said

“Can you play what?” Sam asked

“You blend things together then eat it, and clearly your brother can’t handle it.” Jake explained.

“Well duh! He’s only 15!” I said “What did you fee him?”

“Tabasco sauce, franks red hot sauce, and a chilli pepper.” Harry laughed.

“You guys are so mean.” I chuckled. “But Tyler didn’t make me pancakes this morning, so I wont really care.” I said sticking my tongue out at my little brother who stuck his back out at me. “Where are our parents?” I asked Jake.

“They went out to dinner, tolled us to make our own, but none of us wanted to make anything so we were waiting till you got back.” Jake shrugged

I rolled my eyes and headed to the freezer pulling out three boxes of pizza “There.” I said putting the pizzas on the counter, Niall had finally calmed down and was now sitting on a stool at the island counter next to Sam. Tyler had finally calmed down a bit and Jake and Harry were leaning against the counter talking.

My phone buzzed in my pocket and I answered it without seeing who it is. “Hello?”

“Oy! Hailz how are you?” I perky British accent said

“Lou-Bear!” I shouted causing everyone to turn around and look at me ‘it’s Louis’ I mouthed.

“How are you? How’s Sam? How has my Hazza-Bear been treating you? And what about Nialler? I miss you!” he said in a rush

“Good, Good I think, He’s been great, and He’s good too, I miss you too!” I answered in order with a chuckle.

“I was just calling the check up because I haven’t heard from you or the boys since they left, I miss my Hazza.” Louis fake sobbed.

“Awe would you like to talk to him.” I cooed.

“Please, that damn boy never answers his phone.” He chuckled

“Alright, here he is.” I said holding the phone out to Harry ‘what does he want?’ Harry mouthed I just shrugged and handed the phone to him, Harry nervously took the phone and held it up to his ear.

“Uh… Hello?” Harry asked

“Why don’t you ever answer your phone!” Louis shouted on the other line so loud that we could all hear and Harry had to hold the phone away from his ear ‘oww’ Harry mouthed putting the phone back to his ear.

“Sorry Lou…. I’ve been busy” Harry said through gritted teeth. Louis voice was muffled so I couldn’t make out what he was saying “No God Louis… I cant do that… cut it out…” Harry said rolling his eyes. I smacked my hand on the counter silently freaking out at Harry for rolling his eyes causing everybody in the room to look at me oddly “I’m working on it Louis” Harry said through gritted teeth. “Yea, here he is” Harry said passing the phone off the Niall.

“I don’t have unlimited talking!”

“I’ll be quick.” Niall answered

“’Ello?....” I could tell Louis asked about Sam because his face went beat red. I pocked Sam gesturing to Niall, the two of us laughing “Louis.. Not here!” he said blushing harder

“Wait… did you two…” I trailed off causing Sam to redden too, this time I had everyone’s attention.

“Oh, Oh God!” Tyler said covering his ears.

“Hailey!” Sam shouted “We didn’t do anything!”

“Yea, Mmhm, alright.” I said sarcastically causing Sam to shove me to the side “I’m only kidding” I said putting my hands up in defence.

“Here.” Niall said sanding me my phone back with a wink.

“Oh God Niall.” I scoffed “Don’t even say a word, cause I don’t really want to know.” I said turning around to the oven to put the pizza’s in “And it you keep it up, I’m not feeding you.” I said smugly.

“Oh yes I will!” Niall said matter-of-factly.

“She’s not kidding.” Jake and Sam said at the same time and I nodded in agreement.

“She did it to me once, just sat there and ate it in front of me.” Jake added.

“Oh but I will eat ‘cause I’ll do this.” Niall said picking me up and slinging my over his shoulder.

“Uh.. Niall?” I said worried “W-what are you doing?” I asked when he opened the front door “Niall!” I shrieked when he tossed me off his shoulder and into the snow bank.

“Mess with me and my food and it will be worse.” Niall said crossing his arms over his chest with a smug look on his face as he looked down at me from the deck.

“Niall that was not necessary!” Harry yelled Niall just shrugged “Here.” Harry said extending a hand out to help me up; I took his hand jerking him forward. Harry lost his balance tumbling down landing on top of me.

I groaned while laughing “Oh boy you should have seen your face.” I laughed

“Oh shut up.” Harry scowled

“Oh get a room!” someone shouted I turned my head to see Jake standing on the deck with Niall as they both laughed.

I stuck my tongue out at the two boys and Harry stuck up a middle finger behind him and I laughed when the two laughed. Harry smiled and I poked his cheek and Harry leaned down to kiss me on the cheek.

“Oh gag-me.”

“Shut up Sam!” Harry said looking over his shoulder at the three standing before us.

“OK, help me up now its getting cold.” I shivered.

“Oh? I thought you were used to it, you live here you know.” He said raising his eyebrow sitting up so he was startling my hips with his arms crossed over his chest.

“Yea but I don’t go just lying in the snow.” I retorted tossing him off of me and hopping up to my feet.

“I tried to save you and you shove me in the snow?” Harry asked

“Eyh you pined me into the snow.” I shrugged. “Now get up, you’re going to get sick.”

Harry hopped to his feet jumping onto the deck.

I walked into the house pulling my now sopping wet socks off my feet. “I’m going to change.” I said sauntering to my room. “Niall if you want to rat you better take those pizzas out of the oven before the burn.” I hollered over my shoulder.

“Hurry up in there; I need to change out of these too.” Harry yelled

“Yea, sure whatever.” I mumbled going into my room.”


“Are you sure you don’t want to spend the night?” I asked Sam before they were getting ready to leave.

“No, we’re fine, I think we’ll just stay in the basement all night.” She shrugged.

I nodded and gave her a hug “Everything will be ok.” I whispered.

Sam gave me a reassuring nod “Do I get a hug?” Harry asked with a cheeky grin. Sam smiled and went over to give him a hug.

I walked over to Niall giving him a hug too “Keep her safe.” I whispered.

Niall nodded “Always.” He whispered back “I wouldn’t ever dream of letting her get hurt.”

“Good” I smiled letting go of Niall. “Don’t hesitate to call if you need anything.” I said to the tow as they walked out the door.

“And then there were two.” Harry sighed

“Oh no, your not leaving?” I teased

“Might I remind you that you were the one who insisted I stay here.” He commented. I rolled my eyes as I walked to my room sitting at my desk pulling out my leather book.

“Whatcha doing?” Harry asked leaning over my shoulder

“I thought of something, got to write it down, sorry.” I shrugged “Can you quit breathing down my back?” I asked. Harry went over to my bed laying on his back flicking through my phone. “What are you doing?” I asked curiously.

“Checking out your music.” Harry said nonchalantly. “You have some pretty great stuff on here; Queen, the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Guns n’ Roses…” it’s a great selection.

“Their classic!” I answered.

“Are you done?” Harry whined getting up to look at my writing. “What is this?” He asked

I shrugged “Lyrics?” Harry red over them and nodded. “Sing them.” He said

“W-what?  N-no” I said shaking my head.

“Yes now sing.”

I took a deep breath and started singing.

You come around and make the seasons change
you come around and leave the way you came
you come around and wipe the tears away
you make me want to give my heart away”

“This is great, continue.” Harry said giving me a nudge.

The way you speak and ease me without words
and when you're gone it makes me toss and turn
you come around and make sure that it hurts
Make sure that it hurts
when you're away”

”Wow, your amazing Hailey” said I turned to look at him our faces only inches away “Try this for the chorus.” Harry said plucking the pencil out of my hand to write down some more lyrics down. “There now sing this.”

I looked down at his lyrics taking a breath I continued, but this time Harry joined me “Here among the clouds
we are safe and sound
you lift me up
you lift me up”
I bit my bottom lip “Yea that sounds good” I smiled taking the pencil out of Harry’s Hands when another line came to my mind “You come around and light up everything
You stun me with your smile and all you bring
You come around and make me wanna sing
And make me wanna sing
my fears away”

“Good, now repeat the chorus” Harry said and add ‘lift me up’ repeated a few times at the end.” Harry smiled. I did as tolled and my song was finished. “That is the fastest I have ever written I song.” Harry smiled

“Well when you are inspired, it just comes to you.” I shrugged.

“Remember, I’ll be here when you are ready.” Harry said giving me a kiss on the cheek.

“Oh fuck this.” I said standing up wrapping my arms around Harry’s neck and pulling him closer giving Harry a kiss. Harry put his hands on my hips kissing my back. He backed me up to my bed I leaned back so I was lying on my back, my feet dangling over the side, Harry’s arms on either side of my head supporting him up as he leaned over me, this time when he slid his tongue across my bottom lip I didn’t argue I opened my mouth letting him in, our tongues fighting with each other, Harry moaned and I giggled.

“Mmmm Hailey…” Harry groaned breaking the kiss.

“What?” I smiled innocently.

Harry chuckled shaking his head, his curls falling into his face. I lifted my head up moving the curls out of his face, Harry bent down placing a kiss on my cheek. “We should head to bed. It’s getting late.” He whispered

I gave him a puppy dog face sticking out my bottom lip. “But I’m not tired.” I said crossing my arms over my chest. Harry chuckled as he kissed me again for a brief second before trailing kisses down my jaw to my neck and just behind my ear like he did last night; I moved my head to the side and let out a throaty moan.

Harry chuckled “Bed, Now.” He said with his lips still on my neck.

I huffed “Fine.”
