Truly, Madly Deeply

'I hate you Harry Styles...'

2 years after finishing school and being tormented by Harry Styles, Ellie Laker finally gets accepted into a presigious performing arts academy in London. This was everything she had ever wanted, but she knows that it is probably too good to last...


18. Butterflies

Ellie's P.O.V

I woke to the sound of steady breathing coming from my left side. I tried to turn my head around, but I felt myself being held back by a pair of arms. Harry had wrapped his arms around me in his sleep. A smile arose to my lips before I could hold it back, and it stretched even further as I studied Harry. His mishapen curls lay all over his face, and occasionally blew upwards with his breath.

A couple of weeks ago, if this had happened, I would have killed him. But it was different now. I had completely forgiven him, and the explanation he had given me last night, explained a lot, and I really just had to trust him for his honesty. I just laid there in his arms as time passed, until he started to stir. His eyelids opened and his emerald eyes broke through.

He smiled as he saw me. 'Hey there.'

I chuckled slightly and tried to act casual at his arm still bring firmly wrapped around me, even though he was fully awake and in control of his body. 'Hey sleepy,' I whispered. Mikaela was still fast asleep. I stared into his eyes for a little longer than I should have before trying to get out of bed. But I forgot his arm was still around me and I got pulled back. I instinctively put my hands in front of me and I found myself on top of Harry. My breath hitched, and I stuttered before apologising quietly and quickly getting out of the bed.

We had gotten a message a few days ago that Ms Chiler was sick, so singing classes were being called off for a while. Therefore, it meant more acting.

I looked in the fridge and found a tub of yogurt. I ate it silently, trying to think of anything but Harry. Everytime he was near me, I found myself doing something stupid. It never used to be like this. I used to be either happy being his friend, or hating him completely. But things had changed. I was falling for him.


Mikaela, Harry and I walked into the hall where we had acting, and I noticed Callum see me, and start to walk over.

'Hey Ellie! It feels like I haven't seen you in ages!' He wrapped his arms around me in a hug and pecked my cheek.

'Hey.' I said with a faint smile. I looked at Harry who was eyeing Callum with annoyance. 'Let's um, go over here.' I directed him over to a corner, away from Harry and his dark stares. 'So what's up?'

He smiled at me. 'Nothing much. Just been hanging with friends I guess. Did you want to catch a movie sometime?'

'Uhh...' I was becoming distracted by the crowds of girls that were surrounding Harry. 'Um, yeah sure!,' I said, forcing my head to turn back to Callum. 'Just text me when you have details.'

We were then interrupted by Ms Schour. 'Hello class. Please take you seats. I have something to say before we rehearse again. So as some of you might know, and some of you might not, we are performing 'Forever After,' in just over a months time, so I want you all to be thinking of rehearsing in your spare time and also about costumes and dress rehearsals. I will be giving you the costumes, but you will need to provide your own makeup. There will be makeup students from the school to assist you in the application, but you need to provide your own basics. Also, make sure you notify any family members, friends or relatives of the play so we will have an audience. There will be tickets and I will tell you when they go on sale. Ok, so today we will be rehearsing the scene where Ed confronts Jarrod about Lucy. It is technically the last scene of the play, just so you all know. Ok then, places!'

I tried to find Harry in the people that were all filing up the stairs to the stage, but I couldn't see his mop of curls in amonst everyone. I was handed a script and I quickly scanned through it, having already read it before in my practices. Suddenly I choked on my own spit. Ed and Lucy kiss. Fuck, I forgot all about the kiss. This was the last scene, why wouldn't there be a kiss? Suddenly a hoard of butterflies erupted in my stomach and I felt my palms go sweaty.

'Ok, Ms Laker, Mr Styles and Mr Brown, are you ready? Ok, action!'

I stepped onto the stage, half in a daze. I pretended to read a book in my 'house.' I watched out of the corner of my eye, Harry walking up to Callum. He threw a punch and Callum reacted well.

'Why did you do that? You're supposed to be my best mate! Bastard!' Harry yelled.

'I'm...I'm sorry, she just came to me asking for help...I was just trying to help!'

'Bullshit!' Harry cried, fake tears glistening in his eyes. 'I....I love her, and you knew that.'

That was my queue. I ran out of the house. 'Ed? Jarrod? What happened?'

'I can't believe you would do that.' Harry quietly said to me. I felt a quite real punch in the guts at his sentence, as I thought of all the hurt I had put him through by kissing his friend.

'I'm...sorry...' I told him. 'I was hurt. You being out with all those girls again...I love... I love you Ed, and I couldn't deal with it.

Harry feigned surprise. 'Wh..What?'

I broke down. 'I'm so sorry..'

Harry came over and wrapped me in a hug. 'Lucy, I have always loved you. I am so sorry for what I did to you, if I could take it back I could. I was just trying to get over you.'

I looked up at him through my fake tears, but feeling real elephants in the pit of my stomach. It was nearly here. 'I love you too...'

I looked up into his eyes and I leant my head in towards him. Harry mirrored my actions. And suddenly, we were all too close, I could see the tears on his eyelashes.

'Wait...I...I'm sorry Harry.' I stared at the floor. I felt the elephants stomping around in my stomach. I felt so nervous.

I looked at my sweaty palms and took a deep breath.

'Ok, I'm sorry, I'm ready.' I looked up into his confused eyes.

'Ready Ellie?' Ms Schour questioned. 'Ok, from I love you, action!'

'I love you...' I leaned in, closer, closer, and my eyelids slowly closed. The elephants had increased their pace in stomping and I was sweating everywhere. And suddenly with a jolt of electricty, we touched. And the elephants turned into tiny, pale, butterflies, and I felt myself lose awareness of everything around me. Nothing mattered, except for Harry.

I opened my mouth to his and he eagerly ran his tongue along my teeth. His hand cradled my cheek and my hands were wrapped in his curls. It lasted a while, I had no idea of the time. I was lost. But when we broke, it broke the spell. Everyone was looking at us. Only Mikaela and Ms Schour looked slightly happy, probably from the chemistry. Hallie looked furious and every other girl looked like they wanted to murder me.

And Callum's expression. Anger, hurt, sadness. And with that, he left and fled from the stage.


A/N Hahaha was the kiss what you were waiting for? Or are you counting it as not real because it was written in the script? :)) please keep commenting, liking and fanning, thankyou all XX
