Ellie's P.O.V

We were all walking into the kitchen to get served dinner. I was so tired. Dealing with Harry took a whole lot of energy and mine was finally all used up. Me and Mikaela chose a table close to the door and we sat down. Mikaela was chatting away, and also still talking about how 'amazing' I was with Liam. I didn't really believe I was that good.

I was nodding my head at something Mikaela had said when the boys walked through the doors, and Harry, spotting me, walked straight over to us. And the lunch lady chose that moment to bring over my extra large fries and double decker cheese burger. I closed my eyes and turned to face Harry whose eyebrows had raised.

'Sure you got enough there Ell Ell? Maybe I should take some, we don't want you getting overweight now do we...oh wait'

By this time the whole school was watching and Hallie let out a huge snort of laughter, and the rest of the school followed her example. I gave Harry a look of utmost digust and started to get up from the table, I was not able to take it anymore.

I stormed out of the kitchen and walked up to my room and sat down on the bed. I looked under my shirt at my stomach. It was flat but I remember the days when it wasn't, like Harry would ever let me forget. I looked up at the sink, my eyes watering as I remembered all the time I spent, hunched over, trying to bring it all up.

Mikaela burst in the door, and interuppted my thoughts.

'Elle, are you okay? Oh he was so mean! Will you just please tell me why he hates you and you him?'

'I can't Mikaela I'm sorry. It's..it's complicated, and I don't want you involved in our relationship.'

Mikaela got up and sat next to me. 'But I want to help you. He is so mean to you, and I want to know why.'

I looked into her trusting eyes, and I realised the only person that knew why me and Harry hated each other was my mum.

'Ok. I'll tell you.' I took a deep breath. 'I've known Harry since primary school. We were actually really good friends. We were in the same class and everything and he was always there for me.'

I hesitated, trying to find the right words. 'I...I kind of, sort of liked him a bit.'

Mikaela gasped.

'But I'm over it now of course' I added quickly. 'I thought I was letting Harry know, giving him hints that I maybe wanted more than friendship. But one day, we were sitting together and a girl came over and kissed him. And the next day a different girl came over. And with each girl, he became more and more impatient, and more and more, I don't know...'

Mikaela was staring at me with wide eyes.

'I was hurt. He wasn't really my friend anymore. He had changed to the point that it seemed he was a completely different person. So...so I, I kind of kissed one of his friends, to just get back at him.'

Mikaela gasped and clapped her hand over her mouth. 'Ellie!'

'I know. I regret it now and I tried to apologise, but then he really started to become mean. He teased me about my weight and my appearance. He played stupid pranks on me. And...yeah. I guess he's gotten worse ever since.'

Harry's P.O.V

I walked back into our room after having a lecturing conversation with Liam and the rest of the lads, which was still continuing as we filed through the door. I sighed loudly and threw my bag on the bed.

'Why are you all on her side? Have you ever thought to ask your best friend his side of the argument?' I shouted at them.

'Mate,' Louis reasoned. 'Tell us your side then.'

I ran my hand through my curls as I sat on the bed. 'Ok fine.'

'We were good friends since primary school. She..I...I liked her ok? I...wanted to be closer to her, but I didn't want to ruin our friendship. I asked a few of my friends for advice. They told me to not follow my feelings, and to go out with other girls to try and get over her. So, I did. But I mainly only had one night stands, and every girl I went out with was really clingy I felt bad, but my feelings were still there.'

Liam was looking at me with a weird look and Louis had come to sit down next to me.

'I was frustrated, and I found myself gradually taking it out on Ellie. One day I was about to apologise to her, but..I found her making out with one of my friends. She was doing it to make me angry, I just knew it. So, I retaliated. I started to tease her, and well I guess the dislike has just grown over time between us. But, I don't care anymore, and I am so over her.'

But the boys were just staring at me with disbelieving faces.
