An old friend

As a kid Harry had always been there for Lacie. He was the only one she ever told about her life: how her parents were struggling to meet ends meet, her sisters eating disorder and her abusive boyfriend. He was her shoulder to cry on. That all changed the day he left for the X factor and never looked back, leaving Lacie alone to deal with everything alone. So when she runs into Harry at a local bar she wants nothing to do with him. But Harry's determined to win her friendship... and her heart.


7. kiss

After a few minutes of me persisting Harry to tell me where we were going, I had finally shut up and sat curled against the window of his car. I could feel the heat of his cars heater warm on my cheek, while my forhead rested against the cool window. I tried to soak in what had just happened in the past couple of minutes. I had never told anyone about the rape. The story had just thrived and burned in my body for weeks, screaming to get out, and it finally did. People had heard my story in the court room, but it was their job to listen, Harry truly heard me speak. He didn't interrrupt me with questions and I didn't have to worry about whether what I told him was detailed enough for a conviction. He was just there to listen. Christina Perri's song A Thousand Years played on the radio. The music was soft and low, but loud enough for me to here. I turned towards Harry, my eyes studying him. His big brown mop of curls flopped over his eyes, occasionally he would brush them aside with a sweep of his hand. His long brown lashes crowned his big green eyes, which focused on the road. He turned towards me a gave me a little half smile and for a second we held a glance. I felt something flutter in the pit of my stomach. I bit my lip and turned my head back towards the window. After a couple more minutes we pulled into a parking lot. "Were here!" Harry exclaimed leaping out of the car. I looked up at the big glowing sign before my which read "Lazer Blaze" "You're taking me lazer tagging?" I questioned raising an eyebrow. "Yeah it'll be fun!" He grabbed my arm and lead me inside.

"Ok so in order to tag someone you must shoot your lazer gun at the targets on the vest, these targets are on both shoulders, stomache, and back. There is no running allowed in the lazer room for your saftey and the safety of others." the game monitor, a teenage boy, victim of many years of acne, explained to everyone. In the time we had been here I was shocked no one had bothered Harry. I would have expected to have had a bunch of girls to be surrounding him, but everyone was to eager for the game to begin, that they didn't even notice him. After the boy stopped talking we all entered a room in which we got our lazer guns and target vests. "Your going down" Harry joked pointing his lazer gun at me. " In your dreams Styles" I replied, bumping into him to throw him off balance. "You better watch your back" he said trying to sound serious. I just laughed and everyone entered the lazer room. A voice came on through a speaker and counted down from 10. Once they got to 1 everyone started shooting and scrambling to find cover. Let the games begin. I cautiosly crept along the walls, my lazer gun ready to fire. I felt a vibration on my back and whirled around to see a little boy with his lazer pointed at me. He had hit back shoulder target. The boy quickly ran away, before I could shoot him back. After a couple minutes off searching I found the perfect hiding spot. i wedged myself inbetween two walls, my back targets covered. I heard footsteps coming my way, I raised my lazer gun, ready to fire. I began to walk towards the sound of the foot steps, I was turning the corner when I rammed into someone, both of us falling onto the ground. We had landed with the person on top of me. I looked up to see Harry had been the person I had crashed into. We both made eye contact then started laughing uncontrollably. We laughed until we were both in tears and out of breath. I looked up into his eyes and he caught my glance. We had stopped laughing, but he was still on top of me. "You have really beautiful eyes, you know" Harry smiled brushing some of my hair out of my face. "Yeah?" I answered. He nodded, then began to lean in closer to me. My heart began to beat fast. Our faces we so close together that the tip of my nose was touching his. Right then something washed over my, a want, a need. I closed the gap between us and our lips met. His were soft and warm and moved with mine like a dance. It was a short kiss, but one of the best I'd ever had. We broke apart and he helped me up. The announcer came on again to announce the game was over. I smiled up at Harry and he smiled back wrapping his arm around me as we both walked out of the room and into the afternoon
