19. Trapped

Chapter 19

Harry’s P.O.V

It was early then next morning when I woke up with the smell of flowers all around me. At first I was thinking I got drunk and fell asleep in a park but then I realized it was because I slept with Aspen. I was half sitting half lying down on the bed and she was snuggled close to me her arm over my stomach and her head lying on my chest. My nose was buried in her hair and it was from there that I smelled the flowers. My arm was trapped under her shoulders and my other arm was casually placed over her waist. Just the thought of her being here, made me warm all over. It took all that I could not to wake her up and kiss the hell out of her, and decided against it and instead nestled closer to her as I tightened my hold around her as I allowed myself to drift back into sleep.

Much later that morning I awoke to the sound of running water. I peeked through one eye and saw that Zayn had in fact gotten into the shower. Hm, strange that he didn’t notice Aspen and I. Do I even dare to get up just so that I don’t get caught? I scoffed to myself as I realized I was actually debating whether I wanted to show the boys that I in fact won. 

Once I heard the water stop and the door opening I shut my eyes instantly and let my breathing slow down as I feigned sleep. I heard Zayn stop short in front of the bed and I could almost see the smirk that he had on his face.

“Oh get up Harry, I know you’re awake.”

Unfazed I opened my eyes and raised an eyebrow at him, “How’d you know?” 

“I’ve lived with you for a year, you’d think I’d know whether you’re faking or not?” He scoffed and started dressing into his usual chinos, white shirt and jean jacket. 

“You’re not going to say anything?” I asked him quietly as I felt Aspen stir over me. 

Zayn looked over at her and smirked, “I know better than you, that nothing happened last night.”

I half grinned, “Do you really now?”

Zayn’s amused smile turned into a frown as I saw his fists clench at his sides, “Did something happen?”

I shrugged innocently, “You tell me.”

“Aspen isn’t that stupid,” he retorted rolling his eyes.

I pretended to actually think about it and agreed, “You’re right she’s not.



My eyes fluttered open to the amount of sunshine that was streaming in through the window, breathing in I sensed a familiar scent of D&G men’s cologne. Focusing, I saw a bare chest rising and falling underneath me and I stifled a shocked gasp as I looked up and saw the mass of curls that could only belong to Harry. My mind reeled as I remembered that he took me back to our flat last night, and I probably said some few weird things when I was half awake. 

I slowly tried to remove my arms from his waist as I backed out of his grasp, but I only felt his arms wound tighter against me. I inhaled loudly and attempted again but felt only the same reaction. 

“You really think you can sneak way?” I felt his voice rumble in my ear as I slightly jumped at realizing he was awake.

“You’re awake? Seriously?” I lifted my body from his only to be brought down by his strong arms and let out an oomph before colliding with his solid chest.

“Escaping’s not going to be that easy Aspen, especially after last night,” I could hear his sardonic tone oozing and wanted nothing more than to deck him in the face.

I groaned, “God what do you want Styles?”

“Hmm..” I felt his voice vibrate through his chest and into my ear and felt my cheeks redden and sent a silent prayer that he didn’t see, “Well for one, you begin to thank me profusely for taking care of you last night-“

“Yea I know th-“ 

“A bop bop, not yet sweet cheeks. When I finish,” He said quickly hushing me. I frowned and wanted all but to leave and find Liam and Zayn. “Also besides thanking me, I demand a kiss,” He finished dramatically.

I laughed out loud and then felt myself crushed under his arms, “Okay okay, just let me out first I think if even smell your cologne again I’m gonna barf.”

He chuckled and released me from his hold and I jumped back away from him, falling on my butt and onto the floor. I crossed my arms not getting up and started muttering to myself on how much of a prick Harry could be. 

“What are you doing down there for sweet cheeks? My lips are right here,” He called out to me glancing over the edge at me.

Completely ignoring him, I looked around the room and noticed Liam and Zayn were nowhere in sight, “Where are Liam and Zayn?”

“Really that’s what you wanna talk about?” 

“Yes,” I replied deadpan glaring up at him.

He rolled his eyes, “Well if you must know, they left for the studio three hours ago and not in a rather good mood.”

I blushed, “Um why exactly?”

“Of us of course, they couldn’t stand the fact that we were, well in simpler terms, sleeping together.”

I laughed sarcastically, “I’m sure you loved that.”

His face remained as serious as ever, “Yea I really did,” Harry sat up and leaned his head forward bring all his hair to the front and then flipped it to the side combing it down with his fingers, “So about that kiss Aspen…”

I scoffed, “Yea that’s not happening.”

He gasped, “Why of course it is, I think after grueling all night trying to keep your temperature down..” He looked down at me and his teal eyes sparkled as he pouted, “You’d think I deserve some award.”

I felt my face flush again as I got up and looked down that I was wearing something completely different from last night my head whipped up to look at him as my eyes widened, “Did you change me?”

I expected him to smirk and proudly admit that he did but his face reddened as he looked down at his hands, “Well no, you did that one on your own.”

“I did what?” I asked him confused.

He ran his hands through his hair, “You see, I guess somehow you managed to get up around four and kept going on about how hot it was so I guess you changed into some shorts and what not,” He noticed my blank expression and the fact that I was trying to hold back the urge to disappear from embarrassment, “Don’t worry I didn’t see anything.”

And somehow I managed to believe him because it did seem completely honest and it did sound like something I would do. I turned from him and gathered my hair into a low ponytail feeling his stare mold onto my back. Exasperatedly I turned back to him and sat directly in front of him. His bewildered expression made me smirk and I leaned forward, “Then I guess you do deserve this.” And I kissed him. It was brief, like a short peck but I felt it all the way down to my toes for the brief moment that it lasted. I pulled away only to have Harry pull me back towards him and connect his lips to mine once more. I tried to protest and push away but my body said otherwise. I felt my lips kiss him back and I guess with my mind wandering I never heard the door to our flat open.
