2. Preoccupied


*Tessa's POV*

I groaned and woke up. Well, I didn't actually “wake up”. I just opened my eyes, it was 10 in the morning, and I was way too tired to even think about functioning. But once again, I had to go to work in a few hours, and I had to force myself to get up. Somehow, I worked up the will power to get up, and change into shorts and a sports bra. I brushed my hair, and pulled it back into a ponytail. My running shoes were by the door and Gatorade was in the fridge. My iPod was under my pillow, I grabbed it and started making my way down the stairs and to the door.


I always jog in the morning, it's just another time to be alone. But jogging was nothing without my morning play list. It was filled with Ed Sheeran, Nick Jonas, All Time Low, never shout never, and any good acoustic songs I could find. That's all I listen to now, acoustic songs. Unless it's All Time Low, they're the one exception. They've been my favorite band since I was thirteen years old. But they're so much more than a band to me, they saved my life. I didn't wanna think about that, it's too early to think about all the heavy stuff. I walked out the door and felt the warm morning air and the smell of the ocean crash into my face. I closed my eyes and took it in, Give Me Love by Ed Sheeran was the first song to play on my iPod. Nico filled my thoughts as I started to run, once again, he always did.


At this point, I didn't know what to think about him. Yes, every inch of me still loved him. So much. I could stare into his chocolate brown eyes for the rest of my life, if I got the chance. And he would pull me close to him and kiss my neck. We could lay in his bed forever and ever.


But I know enough about Nico to understand that he isn't that type of person. He only wants to love you when you're alone, and it usually leads into something sexual. But the thing is, he's so perfect that you become a hopeless daydreamer, and you imagine that he will love you like Noah Calhoun loved Allie Hamilton in The Notebook. But that's just not him. He's stubborn, and hard to figure out and he takes every opportunity to pick a fight with you. He's horrible with words and he wont express his feelings. Ever. When he's in a relationship he wants to be single, and when he's single he wants to be in a relationship. He's a compulsive liar, and odds are, he's talked bad about you at least once before. I know every time he lies to me, I know when he talks about me. He doesn't think I know, but I do. He thinks he has life all figured out, but in reality, he is the most naïve person I know. He obsesses over Smirnoff and Bob Marley. He's self centered and forgets everything about you. He doesn't realize when he hurts you, and wont apologize if his life depended on it.


But, he is the most beautiful person I know. His dark chocolate eyes look like they were made at a Hershey's factory. He smells like Hollister, and his eyelashes were long enough to touch the stars. He's so passionate about everything he does, and if you ever have a problem, he will listen to you until you can't possibly talk anymore. And even though he's the worst advice giver ever, he tries to help. And although he isn't the most intimidating person in the world, he will protect the ones he loves in a heart beat. He can make you laugh until you cry, and when you're with him, you forget about all your problems. But the best things about him are all the flaws and quirks that remind you that he's human and not some dream guy that was sent from heaven.


I turned into Harry's neighborhood. A small part of me wanted him to come outside and kiss me, or just be with me, I don't care.



*Harry's POV*

I woke up to the smell of bacon downstairs. The sun took it's place in the sky, it was beautiful out. Instead of going downstairs to eat breakfast, I sat by my window and watched as the waves from the ocean crashed far in the distance. New Jersey was an amazing place. A perfect place to shoot a music video if you ask me. The boardwalk was amazing and the girls at the clubs were really hot. But nobody even comes close to Tessa. She was just downright gorgeous. Is that her? A figure turned the corner, trotting past the house. That's her! God she's even beautiful when she runs. Is it possible to be that perfect? She had a lovely figure, I noticed it last night too. She's a skinny little thing with a nice pair of hips, her boobs weren't too bad either. Her eyes were a deep brown color, and her smile could light up the world. Her laugh was so cute, and she was so easy to talk to. She was like no other girl I've met before. I need to be next to her, like right now.


Tessa disappeared from view, so I got up and went downstairs for any left over breakfast. Once I'm done eating, I'm getting dressed and ready to go to the diner again. Maybe she wants to see your face as much as you want to see hers... You have the rest of the summer to make her yours. The living room was a war zone Niall and Zayn were having a fruit war against Liam and Louis. I grabbed a pillow to protect my face from incoming fruit, and ran into the kitchen. Eggs were all over the floor and pillows were put in front of the fridge and stuffed into cabinets. The scene itself didn't surprise me, it was why they were put there that really got me. I mean, how on Earth would a pillow stuffed cabinet benefit you in a fruit war? Beats me... Well, since there is no breakfast left over, I might as well make some toast and apple juice. But before I could even walk over to the fridge, an arm wrapped around my neck and I was dragged into the living room.

“Surrender or the curly one suffers!” Liam said.

“Never!” Niall screamed as he pelted a banana at my chest.

“OW! Give me that orange Lou!” I yelled. Liam let me go and Louis tossed me an orange. I threw it at Niall with as much force as I could. It hit him in the shoulder and he fell. Fruit was flying everywhere. There were stains all over the walls and furniture. And peels from bananas, oranges, and other fruits covered the floor.

“YAAAA!” I karate chopped the air, Zayn threw a strawberry at me. And the war was on. Sorry Tessa. I thought. I have a war to win.


*Tessa's POV*

I ended up crying in the middle of jogging. Despite everything, I missed Nico. I haven't spent a day without him for over three years, and now I haven't even heard from him in over two weeks. I took out my phone and texted him:

Dude what the hell? I haven't talked to you since forever. Did you die or something?

My house was in sight, so I sprinted to it, as fast as my legs could carry me. I counted how long it took in my head. 9 seconds. Not too bad, my best was 7. I'll take a 9 though, I was tired. I went in through the front door and went straight upstairs to shower. It was almost 11:30 now, and I had to be at work at 2. I turned the shower on and got out of my clothes. My biggest fear was falling asleep in the shower, and it wouldn't be the first time it's happened. Just last week I didn't sleep for three days and fell asleep when I got into the shower. I woke up to ice cold water hitting my face, it was gross, I hate cold showers. But I don't think I would let myself fall asleep in the shower again.


After twenty minutes, I hopped out of the shower and got dressed. The usual white V-neck shirt and skinny jeans. I blow dried my hair and put it up into a pony tail. And as much as I wanted to make an effort to look decent, I decided today was a no makeup day. Breakfast today would be a plain bagel with cream cheese and a tall glass of orange juice. I live bold.

“There's nothing on TV!!!!” I yelled. Yeah, I talk to myself when I'm home alone. Everyone does, don't judge. “Ugh screw it,” I walked over to the drawer and pulled out Finding Nemo. This could preoccupy me until work. The only thing I hated about this movie was those seagulls that wouldn't shut up. MINE! MINE! MINE! MINE! Ugh it's so funny yet so annoying.


I popped in the DVD as I ate my bagel. Nico and I used to do this all the time. We would sit down in the morning and watch movies together. It would have been a very nice memory if he didn't try to get in my pants every time. Despite it all, I missed him a lot. And I don't think I regret going all the way with him. It's not like it was bad, because it wasn't. We both enjoyed it. I think the only thing I regretted was putting so much faith in him. Don't be such a downer. It's not like he said he didn't like you anymore, it's just that he's been busy and hasn't called you... I looked at my phone and there was still no messages from him. I rolled my eyes and set an alarm for 1:45 on my phone. A little nap wouldn't hurt anyone, right? It was only 12:17 and I was so tired. My eyes shut and then I began to remember the boy who showed up at the diner last night. Looks like my dreams of Harry would keep me preoccupied for the next hour and twenty eight minutes. I'm okay with it.
