Changing the Past

I want to go back and change the past. What I said to Harry Styles in School was all a lie...
My name is Grace Shuatsi and I am 18 years of age. If I told people that I went to School with Harry Styles nobody would believe me. That I was not only friends with him, oh no, I was best friends. The closest friend anyone could have. But something went wrong on the night of the prom... Something which made Harry forget...

9. Changing the Past; Chapter 9; Invitation

Grace's POV

Harry leans in until I can feel his hot breath on my lips. He must've noticed that I wasn't breathing because he pauses. I suddenly let out a small hic-cup and he laughs.
"You are so weird..." he mutters and pulls away. I sigh as he takes a step back. That was my one and probably only chance and I blew it. I want to do something like Dobby the house-elf from Harry Potter and hit myself hard with a lamp or something. But Harry is still staring at me. 
"Your eyes... They're beautiful," he says and turns his gaze to the door of the school. 
"So are yours," I croak out and he smiles. Only a small one though but it's still enough to make my mouth open wide. I used to be immune to it but now... Things have changed. 
"I'm going to leave before I get into any more accidents," he says, "But remember to call me as soon as you get home. I'll be waiting." He kisses my cheek and walks towards his car. My fingers linger on my cheek where he kissed me and I stand in the cold for 5 minutes. It starts to rain but I stay out there, thinking. What would he want me to call him about? I'm not really interesting... After I realise that I'm getting soaked, I walk out to my car. I'm not going to tell them that I'm leaving. Stuff them. I turn on my engine and start to drive.

Sarah's POV


Harry was there. Grace was there. They're most probably going to talk about the past. Harry's going to remember. So they're out there, having fun, and I'm stuck here, with nothing to do. I plug in my speakers and play really loud music. I'm on 'Last First Kiss' from One Direction's new album, Take Me Home when someone comes through the door. I hear familiar singing and realise that it's Grace.
"I'm going for a shower, I got drenched out there. And turn the music up," she says, hanging up her coat. I turn it to full volume and start singing terribly along to it.
"GIRL WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
WOULD YOU WANNA STAY, 
IF I WOULD SAAAAYYY
I WANNA BE LAST, YEAH
BABY LET ME BE YOUR, LET ME BE YOUR LAST FIRST KISS
I WANNA BE FIRST, YEAH
WANNA BE THE FIRST TO TAKE IT ALL AWAY LIKE THIS
AND IF YOOOOUUUU 
ONLY KNEEEEWWWW
I WANNA BE LAST, YEAH
BABY LET ME BE YOUR LAST, 
YOUR LAST FIRST KISS!" I dance crazily while Grace plods off to the shower. My eyes suddenly glue to her phone. It contains contacts I want but don't have... Should I? Would a friend really do it? She won't mind if I take Harry and Liam's numbers, won't she? Nah. I stop dancing and walk over to her phone. I pick it up, type in her pass code and click on contacts. Harry Styles comes up. I copy his number on to my phone and do the same with Liam's. I feel a guilty but satisfied feeling inside me and return to madly singing and dancing to Last First Kiss.

Grace's POV

I let the hot water run over my skin, enjoying the feeling. Harry Styles nearly kissed me. I let out my whole inner fan girl in the shower and stop as soon as I come out. Sarah pauses the music and walks up to me.
"We need to think of designs for your dress for your next singing thing. They say the looks and dress wear is half the score." I drop the towl that was wrapped round me and scramble to the floor to pick it up. I'd completely forgotten about that. It was next Wednesday and I haven't even started Practising my song yet... Crap. 
"We'll figure that out later... I need to call someone," I say and walk to my room. 
"And who is that someone?" Sarah calls after me.
"A certain someone who actually likes me. Now go away, I'm on the phone." Sarah shrugs and plays loud music again, now listening to 'Rock Me'. I get dressed and plop myself on my bed. I start ringing Harry and he picks up after 2 rings. 
"Hello?"
"Hi, um, Harry!"
"Oh, it's you Grace." I suddenly feel like a bomb has been dropped inside me.
"You don't want me to call do you," I say, and my hopes drop.
"No, it's just... Wrong timing. Maybe tomorrow? I'm completely free tomorrow, maybe... Is that music in the back round?" Why can't Sarah turn it down?
"Um, yeah. We got your new album this morning." He laughs and continues,

"Yeah, so maybe you would want to come and see my apartment tomorrow morning. Come at any time past 10:00am."
"Oh, er, yeah ok." I'm still not used to hearing Harry's voice on the other end of the phone. 
"Bye love," he says and he hangs up. I run out of my room, switch the music of and tell Sarah what just happened. Her jaw drops to the floor and her eyes look like they're going to pop.
"You. Are. Not," she says simply and turns her back on me. 
"Are you ok Sarah?" I ask and try to get her to face me. 
"Yeah, I just... I'm going to bed now." She takes her iPod and speakers to her room and shuts the door behind her. That's odd. She never acts like this... Who cares? I MIGHT BE HARRY STYLES GIRLFRIEND!!!

(In the morning)

I get up, out of bed at 9:30am and rush around, getting ready to go to Harry's apartment. I pull on some faded blue skinny jeans and a baby pink plain top. I throw a grey jacket over it and pop in a mint. My bracelets on my arms jingle as I move and my medium hoop earrings bash against my neck. I walk out the door without saying bye to Sarah and switch on the engine to my car.

Sarah's POV

Why has Harry fallen for Grace She's plain and I'm bubbly. I don't want to be mean but... Harry deserves better. Grace IS nice and everything but... I don't know... I'm jealous. I always seem jealous of Grace but I guess she was of me when we were 16. I used to get all the boys and she would get none. I guess it's just fair that now she gets Harry. I can hear her walking around our kitchen, seeming really nervous but I'm not going to help her. I'm pretending I'm asleep. If she gets Harry... I must get someone too...
