10. Everything Has Changed


Sam’s POV

                I arrived back to the flats, a huge smile plastered across my face. I had spent the whole day with the girls, Marina, Kiera, Bridget, Perrie, Eleanor, Justine and I. We had hit up Wet Seal, Forever21, Aerie, and Bath & Body Works. I came back to my flat with over fifteen bags in my hands; I had splurged a little bit. But I set them down on my bed, planning to unpack them later, when I departed to see Harry. I know it had only been a few hours, but I had missed him so much.

                I walked into the hallway, and the girls had either gone to their rooms or to their boyfriend’s rooms to put their stuff away. I was running up to Harry’s flat, when I saw men coming down the stairs with his things. “What are you doing? That’s Harry’s things!” I yelled at the man moving his cabinet out of his room.

                “Sorry ma’am, I was hired to move everything out of Harry Styles’ room, I’m not going to deny that offer!” said the man to me. I ran up the stairs into the flat I had become so used to. I had spent countless hours snuggling with him during silly Disney movies we watched together, I slept on his bed countless nights while he offered to take the couch. But when I saw the room, I was completely shocked.

                It was empty. There was nothing left in the room, literally. The only thing left was one of his guitar picks that was in the corner of the room. The one I was using when we first fell for each other, when he wrapped his arms around me when we were playing guitar on his bed. I fell in love for the first time; it was like I had never felt feelings before.

                But now, he was gone. Where did he have to go?  I went to the corner and grabbed the pick from the ground, and felt my body slump to the ground, deep sobs started coming straight from the bottom of my heart. I could literally hear the sound of my heart breaking within my chest, and it felt horrible. Like knives being stabbed into the back of my neck. I felt my eyes going puffy and red, and nothing was stopping me from crying like this, nothing could stop me now. He was gone, and I had a terrible feeling I would never know why.

Daniel’s POV

                Moving into college, wow. I can’t believe I was moving to London to go to a performing arts college. I never thought I’d be able to be where I was today. I always have loved singing, acting, dancing, playing piano and writing music, but applying to a school I thought I had no chance getting into, and then them offering me a full scholarship? Life has a crazy way of taking things in the complete opposite direction you imagined before.

                I moved into my flat, and I was all settled in. I started unpacking, and organizing all of my things. I was going to miss New Hampshire; life was so calm and relaxed there. I loved the idea of a fast paced city, but I’m starting off a new, not knowing anyway. It hasn’t been that way for me since I moved in middle school, and since then, because of my older brother Nick, people had always known who I am, and because of how proud he is of me, they know the achievements I’ve made.

                The fact I was invited to audition for The Voice, that I have won awards from all over the world for my theater, there were a few. But I don’t like thinking about what I’ve done, I hate feeling like I’m being conceited.

After a couple hours, I started hanging up some pictures from home, some of my best memories I believe. The performing arts camp I have attended since I was young, shows I have been in and some pictures from my favorite dance I had ever been in, with the most beautiful girl you could imagine. But I hadn’t seen her in two years; god only knows where she is now.

I decided that I would go for walk, clear my head and calm down a little bit. Maybe I could find a dance studio, and move for a little while, that always could clear my head more than anything. I walked by the flat next door to mine, and heard something coming from inside it. It was a light sound, close to silent, but I could hear it, and I knew it was from the room next to me.

Now I promise, I am not the guy to just burst in on other dude’s rooms, but I could swear this wasn’t a guy, and the room had no furniture in it. I looked over, and saw in the corner there was a small girl crying, her face in her hands, and she was violently sobbing, something was definitely wrong.

“Oh my goodness, are you okay?” The girl didn’t even look up, but she spoke, shaking with every word.

“I’m so sorry; you must be the new student. You shouldn’t see my like this. Go down to flat 4, Justine will introduce you to everyone.”

“No, what’s wrong? I’m a good listener; I don’t care if it’s my first day. I’m here for you,” The girl froze, it was strange. She looked up into my eyes, and immediately, even though they were puffy and blood shot, I knew those eyes.

I had looked into them thousands of times and taken advantage of their beauty every time. Every summer, we’d be together almost every second of every day. I still remember every time I hugged her, all the times I felt the huge need to put my lips to hers. I love her, I always have and I always will.

In her eyes, I could see the recognition of me as well. “Sam,” I said, not even sure how I managed to get it out with my heart breaking at her beauty like this. She jumped into my arms, throwing herself on me like she did on the first day of summer every year since we met.

“Dan, what are you doing here? I mean, don’t get me wrong I am so happy to see you! But I just, what are you doing here? Oh my goodness!” she quieted herself and then just hugged me once again.

I felt so happy, that she could have been in such a distressed state, and seeing me, just plain old me made her this happy. “Can you tell me what’s wrong?” I asked her.

“It’s kind of a long story,” she sniffled.

I smiled genuinely, and told her, “I have time.”

Sam’s POV

                It took a few hours, but I poured my heart out to Dan. Every little detail, everything Harry had done for me, and about halfway through I had received a tweet sent to my phone. @NiallOfficial – Thanks to all of the support, we’ve started back on tour! Thanks to all<3

                So I had learned he left me for his stupid band, whatever. If I wasn’t that important to him that he could at least say goodbye, I didn’t want that anyways. Obviously this wouldn’t be easy, I’m in love with him, but if he couldn’t even call me once to tell me he’s leaving, I was done. I decided I need to focus on my music, and meeting new friends, and apparently catching up with old ones.

                After I finished explaining to Dan everything that happened with Harry, we started remembering old memories with each other. “Sam, do you remember that summer when we were both the main dancers? And we were in advanced dance?” I smiled and nodded.

                “I think that was the best dance I ever performed. And can I be honest with you?” He nodded and smiled. “I wanted to impress you so much,” I told him, and he laughed.

                “I wanted to make an impression on you too, I felt really nervous to dance with you!” he told me. Was he serious?

                “Are you kidding me? You’ve always been the best dancer there! Why would you be nervous to dance with me?” I asked, incredulous.

                “Because I had always kind of wanted to know, from the time I heard your music for the first time. And even though maybe your dancing wasn’t as strong as your singing then, being around you always made me nervous.”

                I blushed and pushed him playfully, “You’re insane, Dan.” I told him. Then I decided I’d take him to introduce him to everyone. I grabbed his hand and pulled him down the stairs, where in Bridget’s room, everyone was watching a movie. Bridget, Justine, Kiera, Marina, Dylan, Chris and Jack stood up when I walked in, hand in hand with someone who, well, wasn’t Harry.

                “Sam…” Justine warned.

                “I know, guys, I know Harry’s gone. And that he didn’t feel the need to say goodbye. It’s fine, I knew he never could care about a girl like me. I’m over it. But have I told you guys about the camp I used to go to?” They all nodded. “Well this is Dan; he used to go with me! I haven’t seen him in like, two years?” Dan nodded.

                “It’s so great to meet you all! Sam has already told me so much about you, and I can’t wait to be studying with you all!” Dan said, with that lovable smile that no one could help but completely melt under.

                Chris was the first to stand up, trying to be positive, for me, even though everyone was sad about the boys leaving so suddenly. “Hey man, I’m Chris. Here for singing, and song writing. What are you here for?”

                “I’m here for singing, dancing, acting, song writing, and playing piano,” Dan said nervously. Chris smiled, and everyone slowly rose up to introduce themselves, the last one being Bridget. I went and sat next to her on the couch, and she looked devastated.

                “Niall?” I asked. She nodded, and hugged me, sobbing into my shoulder.

                “Shh, everything’s going to be okay. It was fun while it lasted, but we’re here for our music. Let’s just remember the happy moments from this summer, and keep the sadness in the music we’ll write about it. You know their song, ‘Summer Love’? That’s what we’re going through. They’re gone, and I don’t think they’re coming back. But we’re here, we’re now. And everything is going to be okay.” Bridget looked up, and whipped the tears from her eyes.

                “You’re right,” she smiled and went to introduce herself to Dan. Chris came and sat on the couch next to me, as we all decided to relax the rest of the day, and watch the obvious cheesy favorite, a High School Musical Movie Marathon.

Chris’ POV

                How am I supposed to tell her that he didn’t want to leave? Dan consoled her before I could find my sister, and telling her now that he was devastated felt wrong. And what if it only hurt her more? If she knew that he did truly leave in love with her, then what if she just thought about him all the time, cried over missing him, and he came back with a new girlfriend? She’d be even more devastated then right now.

                I looked at my baby sister sitting next to me. Her eyes were still a little red and puffy from when she cried earlier, so I wrapped my arm around her shoulder and side-hugged her. She looked up and smiled at me, hugging me and resting her head on my shoulder.

                But as Troy and Gabriella started meeting, I heard Dan and Sam singing in harmony to the song all of us knew, I felt something changing in the air. Sam was obviously devastated about Harry; she was in love with him! But she’s told me about Dan, and made me promise that I would never tell Harry, but Dan was Sam’s first big crush, but they had never had a chance to make anything happen.

                I was worried about her, knowing that she’d be broken about Harry for quite some time, but also feeling things for Dan, renewed feelings that she had buried into her music for so long. How is someone supposed to just get over these things?

Dan’s POV

                Being here, with Sam and the rest of the people here on a scholarship was a dream come true. They were all so real, all so true. And I have to be honest, being back with Sam brought me back to summer two years ago. The summer we were together. Everyone knew to stay away from her, I was very protective of her, although since we were so young and naive, I never understood.

                But we were here together, this year. And nothing was going to get in the way of me getting her to fall in love with me. I pulled out my phone, and texted a number I already had, that I never thought I would text again. Hey, wanna go to dinner and a movie with me tonight? Next to me, she pulled out her phone, and texted something back, after sending, she smiled and looked up at me.

Sam’s POV

                Is Dan asking me on a date? Or is he just being friendly? I can’t date yet, I’m still in love with Harry. But I had missed Dan so much, and Harry had obviously left me for a reason, and I couldn’t spend my school year thinking about the next time he’s spotted up in a tree with a girl. I was never more to him than just another girl; he had probably pulled these things on hundreds of girls before me. I don’t need someone that is a player, I have had enough of those.

                I wasn’t ready to date yet, but I did want to hang out with Dan. So I typed my quick reply, and then sent it and looked up into his eyes, when he took out his phone and read the short message I sent him.

                Sounds perfect! I can’t wait! :)
