He's Mine

As I turn 17, the things I thought were the most important, seemed to prove me wrong. So now I sit on this plane with my best friend Haley, waiting for my arrival in NY, my big break. Little did I know I was going to be staying at the most expensive apartment in Manhattan. Yeah, you heard right. Let's just say, my uncle is more than just a rich fellow. Maybe I'll meet someone special. Maybe they'll be real. Maybe they'll be my next door neighbor for the summer? All I hope is that the day I meet him, my heart is ready to let him in.


9. Rumors

Eliza's POV.

My eyes fluttered open as I clutched the bed sheets for support. I had a nightmare... It's been like this since Harry left. I guess it's just paranoia but I never get nightmares when I'm in Harry's arms. Never. I wiped the beads of sweat that had formed on my forehead then got up to have a shower.

My muscles ached slightly for pushing myself yesterday, but I'll live. I let the cold water run over my sore muscles then changed the temperature warmer which sent a weird tingly feeling through my body. It kinda relaxed my muscles. I stepped out, wrapping myself in my grey fluffy towel. After brushing my teeth and washing my face, I went over to my closet taking out light blue denim shorts, a red crop top with a white tank top inside, and my classic navy converse.

I slipped them all on before deciding on having Starbucks for breakfast instead. I grabbed my sling bag containing my phone, wallet, and Starbucks card, heading out the door and down the street. As I entered the store, I received multiple stares and whispers. Well if you got something to say, may as well say it aloud. Whatever.

"Hi can I get a chocolate chip cream and a hazelnut frappuccino please?" I asked the dude at the counter. He smiled charmingly "Anything for you love." He said flirtatiously making me cringe. "Please, just don't try." I mumbled and walked off with my receipt. After I collected my drink I walked out and back down the streets of New York. The sun was pretty much burning my skin as I continued to head back home.

As I reached the entrance to my apartment I noticed a pretty large amount of people- no wait, those are... Paparazzi. Shite... Then they turned around and noticed me. Double shite... "ELIZA! ELIZA! HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE CHEATED ON?! WHAT DO YOU FEEL ABOUT HAYLOR?! HAS HARRY TOLD YOU ANYTHING?!"

What in hell were they talking about? I tried my best to push through them, ignoring the endless questions they continued to throw at me. Succeeding, I quickly went up the elevator not turning back. Haylor? Isn't that... Harry and Taylor...? As in... Swift?

That's when I got a call. Harry. "Hello?" I sniffled. Yeah, I had started to cry a little... Okay not a little. A lot? "Babe I'm so sorry! Please let me explain! It's not what it looks like." He said quickly, shouting almost. "Then please, explain. Heck you've only been gone one day and this has already happened." I mumbled frustrated and walked out the elevator into the hall way.

I didn't feel like going into the apartment just yet so I sat in the hall, right in front of Harry's door. Just staring blankly at it. "It was management's idea... Taylor's album just came out and it was meant to be a publicity stunt! Please... I can't loose you Eli." It was starting to sound like he was crying. "Please." He whimpered. I couldn't handle it. I ended the call, immediately regretting it. I loud sob escaped my lips as I buried my face into my knees.

It must have been pretty loud because Haley came running out frantically. When she saw the state I was in, her face softened and she pulled me up, bringing me into the living room. She sat me onto the couch the pulled me into her arms, letting me sob into her. We just lay on the sofa, I was crying while she comforted me like she always did. "I don't know whether I should believe him. Help me Hales." I murmured sadly into her after I had calmed down slightly.

"Maybe you should wait for him to get back? Maybe seeing his face will help you make a decision?" She suggest gently and rubbed circles on my back. I nodded and sighed softly before falling asleep in Haley's blue hoodie.

Harry's POV.

"I've screwed up everything!" I yelled throwing the lamp that was siting on the bedside table, onto the floor. Tears had started to blur my vision as I hit my back against the wall, sliding down against it. The door opened then closed. "Mate, you need to calm down." Louis mumbled sitting next to me. "She hung up. I don't know what she's thinking, how she feels. God knows what she's doing now." I sniffled and rubbed my nose with the sleeve of my hoodie.

"Well maybe talking face to face with her might help?" He suggested patting my shoulder. "Taylor went home. If I'm being honest, she didn't look guilty." My eyebrows scrunched up in anger. "So she used me? She wanted this to happen didn't she?!" My bloody was boiling and I just wanted to smash something again. Then Niall came in, his face red. "I heard something smash, and you yelling. I couldn't take it." He mumbled and I opened my arms to hug him.

"I'm sorry mate." I muttered guiltily for making him cry. I hated seeing Niall cry. It just broke my heart. The three of us sat on the floor, staring at the wall opposite us. Liam and Zayn had followed Simon somewhere... I dunno. All I know is that they're not home. "Do you think she'll forgive me?" I asked, afraid of the answer I was about to receive. "I don't know mate, but I hate management for making you do this." Louis grumbled.

"You need to make her forgive you. Don't give up until she does. Heck Harry I've never seen you so happy before. Don't let her out of your sight." Niall told me strictly, his eyes puffy from tears and his hair a mess. I felt a pang of guilt one again... I guess whatever effects me, effects the whole band. Thank god I have friends like these. Then he left the room.

"You've packed right?" Louis asked looking at me from the corner of his eye. "Yeah." I murmured. "Then go sleep mate. We have an hour before we fly to Manhattan so you have enough time." He said before getting up and leaving. I reluctantly dragged myself to the bed and threw myself onto it. "You. Are. An. Idiot." I whispered to myself before I fell asleep. And let me tell you, it was restless.

"Harry, Harry mate come on." Liam said, shaking me slightly. "We have to leave for the airport." I huffed before getting up and nodding. I kept my hoodie on, despite the warm weather I felt dead, and cold. Plus I wanted to hide my face from the cameras. I grabbed my suitcase from the floor and we all exited the hotel room.

When we arrived at the airport, I wasn't surprised to see the mass of paparazzi and fans in front of the entrance. "I don't feel good lads. Tell the fans sorry for me?" I said before getting out and walking straight past everyone without saying a word, which of course got me a few "What the hell?"s and "Harry what's the matter?"s but I ignored them all and went to the VIP waiting area.

Around 20 minutes of lying on one of the couches with my hood pulled way over my face, the rest of the band came in quietly and sat on the couches around me. No one spoke so it was just pure silence until the intercom called us and we boarded the plane. We were going on our own jet so it was super spacious. Louis and I went to sit at the very back whilst everyone else sat scattered around the front of the plane.

While we sat there for god knows how long, I finally got to think to myself. No girl has ever had this much impact on me, not as much as Eli does. She's so perfect and knowing I had managed to break down her walls so quickly, I-

"I think you love her." Louis said, snapping me out of my thoughts. "What?" I asked to see if I had heard him right. "Oh come on. I know you heard me." He crossed his arms over his chest and turned his whole body to face me, raising one eyebrow. My whole face heated up and I started messing with my curls. "I guess..." I mumbled looking at him through my hair. "No, don't guess. Feel." He said stubbornly staring at me blankly. "Okay yeah. I gu- I mean I DO love her." Then I was engulfed in a huge hug.

"AWE MY HAZZA BEAR IS IN LOVEEEEEEEEE!" Louis squealed causing everyone on the plane to look back. Zayn, Liam and Niall all had knowing smirks on their faces as they folded their arms. "Oh shut it all of you." I mumbled and hid my face back into my hoodie. The whole ride back to Manhattan was filled with teases and jokes, most about me. I guess you could say it was a longggggggggg ride back.

When we came back to the apartment the guys all stampeded into their flats. Louis and I both owned the one I stayed in, Josh and Niall had one right next to ours, then Zayn and Liam opposite mine. Eliza's was opposite Niall and Josh's. Basically there were only 4 penthouses. "Just apologize." Louis whispered, patted my back then went into the apartment to, I guess, kick Josh back to his an Niall's apartment. Here goes.

I took a deep breath in before knocking on the door, hoping Eliza would open it. Instead though, Haley stood there, an unimpressed expression plastered across her face. "You've hurt her. A lot." She glared before turning around and going to, what I suspect, her room. I sighed, disappointed at myself, before walking in and slowly closing the door.

She laid there, sprawled out on the couch with puffy eyes and dried tears on her face. Well there goes the pieces of my already broken heart. "Eliza?" I whispered slowly shaking her lightly.

Eliza's POV.

I slowly opened my eyes, feeling the sting of the cold air hitting my dry eyes. The minute I saw Harry I just couldn't take it. I jumped up and hugged him tight. "I'm so sorry Eliza." He cried into the crook of my neck as I nuzzled myself into his. My shoulder was starting to feel damp and I realized he had started crying. I pulled out a little, so I could see his face, and wiped his tears away looking him straight in the eyes. "It's okay... It meant nothing right?" I mumbled caressing the side of his face.

He nodded quickly, looking at me with his adorable puppy dog face. I smiled softly and kissed the lips I had been longing to touch since he left. It made me forget everything. I don't care if he was seen holding hands with Taylor but he's mine. And I love being able to call him that. "I think I love you." I suddenly said, shocked by my own actions. I was expecting Harry to back away slowly then run out the door. But instead, his lips turned up into a huge grin and he gave a long kiss, then leaned our foreheads together. "Well Ms Eliza, I KNOW I'm in love with you."

Then we shared a long, passionate kiss before I pulled out and hugged him tight, taking in the scent I had missed so much. It was around 9 at the moment so we decided to go out with the boys, Josh, and Haley for a late night dinner... Heck knows where. "Casual?" I asked as we started walking towards my room. Harry nodded before running and jumping onto my bed. He sighed a happy sigh, sinking himself into the turquoise bedsheets.

I giggled and went over to my closet taking out some dark denim jeans and a light blue sleeveless blouse which I was going to tuck in. I walked into the bathroom to change hearing Harry groan. "Oh shut up." I called to him then started changing. After I came out I slipped on my white converse and took my phone off the charger. "Ready?" I asked sitting next to Harry who was sprawled out on my bed.

"Yep." He mumbled and opened up his arms for me to crawl into them, which I gladly accepted. We laid there cuddling for a little while before we decided it was time to go. He wrapped his arms around my waist and I wrapped mine around his and we sorta stumbled over to the door and walked out hand in hand.

"Eli, this is Louis, Zayn, Niall, and Liam. Guys this is Eliza." Harry introduced. "I know." I giggled and hugged them one by one. "It's nice to finally meet you." I smiled and they all agreed before Niall shouted "I'M HUNGRY." I laughed and nodded then we all made our way to the car that was waiting.

"Nandos?" I asked smiling excitedly. "OH MY GOSH YES!" Niall yelled and hugged me. "I HAVE A NEW BEST FRIEND." He announced before Harry pulled me away from him gently. "She's mine." He glared playfully at Niall then laughed. "Alright come on let's goooooo!" Haley said and dragged us all into the car.

"I'll have a chicken strips with rice please, oh and an ice lemon tea." I told the waiter then sat back into my seat tiredly. "Sleepy babe?" Harry asked intertwining our hands under the table. "Quite. But super hungry." I muttered miserably. He chuckled and nodded, stroking my hand with his thumb. "After we get back we can go to sleep. Want me to stay over?" I quickly nodded my head, not wanting to have another nightmare. Last night's was bad enough.

Once we got home Harry went to his apartment to get change whilst I went to my bedroom to wait for him. I slipped on a plain navy t-shirt with my favorite stripy shorts. Soon Harry came into my room in his boxers and a t-shirt. I yawned crawling under the covers as he followed me then pulled me onto his chest, kissing the top of my head.

"I missed you so much while you were gone. Even if it was only for a night." I murmured and snuggled closer to him. "I missed you way more. Simon was being such an ass and management were being utter assholes. I hate being away from you. You're my boo." He giggled and leaned down to peck me on the lips. "Goodnight Harry. I love you." I mumbled sleepily. "Goodnight babe. I love you too."
