She's the most popular girl in school, she has a boyfriend Mitch, and her life is going great when he doesn't think about her parents.
What happens when she meets someone who totally turns her world upside down? read to find out!


2. Ouch.

Everything was going perfectly fine until I saw my boyfriend, of 6 months, Mitch. Hooking up with... Tash!? WHAT!? The girl that tormented me for years, was hooking up with MY BOYFRIEND!? 
The tears started to prickle my eyes, I swore to myself that I wouldn't cry! So i held back the tears, and I stood there. Waiting for him to 'finish'. My insides felt like they were going to fall out of my chest. I turned to face Brit, who was just as gobsmacked as I was.
"Oh, Sorry Crystal, are we in your way?" Tash said, with the bitchiest smile on her face that made me want to punch her right in the nose. "Oh, Crystal! hey um, shit..." I heard him say, under his breath. "Crystal, it's not what it looked lik-" I cut him off before he could say anything. "Oh yeah, pinning up some girl against a locker and practically eating each others faces isn't what it looked like? what was it then!?" I practically yelled, he was about to speak again, but I cut him off again. "Save it, Mitch, we're done." 
I went to walk away till Tash stepped right in front of me. 
"Aw babe, leaving so soon? going to go run back to mummy? oh... wait." She said, smirking. And i almost forgot Brit was right next to me. 
all of a sudden Tash stood back, looking defenceless. "Stop Brit, it's not even worth it." She let go of a frustrated sigh. "I swear, If i see you talk to my best friend like that again, shit will fly. Got it? Cool. Oh, and I hope you enjoy Crystal's left overs." And with that, me and Brit took off down the hall way. But I couldn't hold it in anymore, I burst into tears at my locker. Brit gave me a comforting hug and then Maddy came over. 
"Whoa, what's all the commotion?" Maddy asked, trying to catch her breath from running over here. 
"We saw Mitch and Tash eating each others faces at the lockers," 
"Wait, your Mitch?" Maddy asked, worried. 
"Not mine anymore," I struggled to say through sobs. 
"Well, this is our cue." Brit said. 
"What do you mean? Maddy asked. 
"TIME TO CUT BITCHES!" Brit yelled, enthusiastically. 
We all bursted into laughter, these girls always know how to make me feel better. 
Luckily, no one had asked me about my parents today, which was good, but I practically jinxed that when a girl from year 8 that I wasn't really friends with came up to me and asked if i was alright because she heard what had happened, I gave her a reassuring smile and said I was fine. 
Time flied when I was talking to Maddy and Brit, I felt so much better. All of a sudden the bell rang, and I had History, but Brit or Maddy weren't in any of my classes, except for Math. I let out a sigh and told them that I'd see them at break. 
I made my way to History, everyone was crowded around something, or someone, but at this point I didn't care because all I could think about was Tash and Mitch today, I felt like I was going to cry, now this will be the second time today that I eat my words. I realised I was late when the whole class turned around from what they were looking at and stared at me like I killed 27 people. "Late again, Ms Collins, I see you still haven't changed your ways since last term." 
"Sorry Ms Bennet, it won't happen again." I said, smiling. Hopefully she'd buy it. Everyone then moved back to there seats, and I realised what they were staring at, is that... HARRY STYLES!? oh my god oh my god oh my god. Why is Harry Styles in my class!? what!? Okay, Crystal, calm yourself. This is NOT the time to be fangirling. I tried to contain my excitement because HARRY FREAKING STYLES WAS IN MY CLASS. When I sat down, I began to open up my books. "Okay everyone, as you all well know that Harry Styles is in One Direction, and it is my pleasure to all inform you that he will be joining our class for the rest of the year, and I want you all to be especially nice to him!" Ms Bennet announced and there was all chanting and clapping from the class. Ugh, this is what I hated about some famous people though, just because they're famous everyone suddenly thinks they're more relevant than anyone else, it's stupid. I realised that I was the only one that wasn't clapping or congratulating Harry, but not only was I upset, I was mad because everyone treated him like the most important human being in the world. He then sat down with his group of friends that I hated, they were the ones that are so full of themselves. I tried to keep my mind off of things, so I pulled out my phone and started listening to More Than This, by One Direction. Everyone was doing work and I shifted my gaze off of my paper that I was writing on to Harry, I saw him look at me, and I quickly looked away, and I saw him smile at the corner of my eye. 
I was concentrating on my work with One Direction practically blaring in my ears, I didn't realise that it was loud enough for someone else to hear, I was softly singing to myself "I never had the words to say, but now I'm asking you to stay" until someone came and sat next to me and started singing the rest of the line. 
"For a little while inside my armsss." 
I looked beside me and saw Harry, he was smiling cheekily at me. 
I couldn't help but blush, his eyes were so much more beautiful up close. 
"You're a One Direction fan?" 
"And you're Harry Styles?" I said, raising my eye brows and smiling. 
"In the flesh." He smiled, and winked at me. Oh my god, he has such a lovely smile. Wait, no, stop Crystal, heaps of girls have probably already called dibs on him, and he's just a normal guy, minus all the fame. 
We started talking for almost the whole period, and it was so amazing just to talk to someone and it not be about my parents, I hated being constantly reminded. But when I was talking to him it felt just like I was talking to Harry. Not, 'Harry Styles, from One Direction, biggest boy band in the world.' Just, Harry. 
But all of a sudden I started thinking about Mitch and Tash kissing today, and tears started to fill my eyes. I tried to blink them away but they came to fast, so a tear rolled down my cheek. Harry noticed and grabbed my wrist indicating for me to look at him. 
"What's wrong?" He asked, with a very sincere worried look in his eyes. 
"Oh, it's.. it's nothing." I said, trying to steady my breath. 
"It has to be something, you were smiling at me a minute ago." He said, chuckling under his breath. 
I giggled, and wiped the tear away. "It's just, I was dating this guy, Mitch, for like.. 6 months, and just before first period I saw him hooking up with the one girl I HATE more than anyone. She tormented me all through school, luckily I had my two best friends to help me through it, but I thought he loved me, I loved him, it's just.. yeah." I said, letting out a couple of quiet sobs. 
He pulled me in for a hug which I wasn't expecting at all. I cried quietly into his chest. 
"Don't cry, you're beautiful, and one day you'll find someone that will treat you how you deserve to be treated. Okay? Cheaters are stupid." 
He made me feel so much better, and I pulled out of our hug. I needed someone just then, and his hugs were very comforting. 
"Thank you, Harry." 
"Any time, I'll always be here for you, I promise."
