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...


7. Casting Problems

Ellie's P.O.V

It had been a week since I had opened up to Mikaela. The last week had definetely been really hard to deal with Harry, he seemed to get worse with every day I spent with him.

The sun shone bright in through the curtainless windows. I hated Monday's. I groggily got out of bed and I woke up Mikaela.

'Come on, we've got acting first.'

We both slowly got ready and I was so tired I didn't really register with what clothes I was putting on. I flicked my hair in a ponytail, and stood up, waiting for Mikaela who took a much longer time than I did. When she was finally ready we had to bolt down the corridor because we were running late already.

Puffing, we burst into the classroom, evidently interrupting Ms Schour. She gave us both annoyed, but amused looks, and we quietly slid into seats.

'As I was saying, before Ms Laker and Ms Clussimo kindly decided to join us, I have been observing you and you're talents over the past week, and I have come up with the cast for our play.'

Hallie sat up straighter in anticpation.

'Ok,' she started, addressing her piece of paper. 'Hallie, you will be playing Ivy, Mikaela, you will be playing Megan...'

I slowly drifted into a daze, I wasn't expecting her to call my name at any time, and I was just happy for Mikaela who got the role of Lucy's best friend.

'And for our two mains, Lucy will be played by.. Ellie Laker.'

I choked on my gum. What? I looked around who was wearing the exact expression that I had. Hallie was looking at me with digust and jealousy.

'And her romantic interest, Ed is going to be played by one of our guests...'

No no no no no no, my heart had dropped out of my chest and hit the floor.

'...Harry Styles.'


Mikaela was talking to me but my brain wasn't really registering what she was saying. Harry, my romantic interest, this is a nightmare...I'm going to wake up any minute now. But Mikaela was happy for me. She was really excited that I got the main part.

'I need to tell Ms Schour. I can't do this.' I slowly uttered.

'No Ellie. You can't do that. She chose you because she thought you would be the best one for the part, you can't just let her down.'

I shook my head. I can't do this, but before I could feel sorry for myself anymore, Ms Schour had pulled Harry and I up onto the stage for a quick read through. I stumbled onto the stage and Harry just smirked at me, but I thought I could see a bit of worry in his eyes. I felt a bit of happiness at the fact that he didn't want this role anymore than I did.

I looked at the sheets of paper Ms Schour had given us and flicked to the page which she said. I felt all the class's eyes on me and my cheeks started to burn.

'Ed, why are you deliberately hurting me?' I was shocked with how much emotion I put into it.

' wasn't deliberate, it never was. But tell me...why did you sleep with that other guy than?' His eyes bored into mine, but were full of something other than taunting and mockery, genuine confusion and vulnerability. He was actually a really good actor.  

Before we got any further, the bell rang. The class started to get up and I jumped off the stage before Ms Schour or anyone could talk to me.
