Ellie's P.O.V

I was running. Trees and lights flashed by impossibly fast. The leaves underneath rustled as they were briefly disturbed by my bare feet. My breath came out in short, strained breaths, but I kept running. Suddenly, I heard a noise to the left of me. And Callum stepped out from behind a bush. 'Hey there Ell Ell. Whatcha been doing, running? There's no point, you would have to run non stop, for your whole life in order to just lose a tenth of your weight.' Confusion and anger boiled up inside me. I tried to run towards him, but he just kept getting further and further away. Suddenly, he was right in front of me. He lifted my chin and I closed my eyes and we kissed. It felt right until I remembered what he had just said. But as I pulled away, Harry was standing there, and he pulled me in again -- 

The water bursting out from the shower head brought me straight out of my dream, and I was shocked with myself for wanting to know what happened next. I looked outside, and to my confusion, it was still completely dark outside. I looked over at my alarm clock and the bright LED numbers read 2:04. I sighed and fell back on my pillow. I turned my head and saw through a gap in the door that Harry was in the bathroom.

After I had come back from my run, he had certainly been acting weird. He wasn't talking or teasing, and he kept taking multiple showers. I was pretty sure I knew the reason why. Our soap fight and our moment was right at the top of the list. But I was also sure that if I hadn't gone running, I would be acting the exact same way as Harry. It scared me to think I had feelings for my childhood bully, and if Mikaela hadn't interrupted, I knew what would've happened in the kitchen.

Suddenly my phone sent loud bursts of Ed Sheeran's Gold Rush across the room, and I flung myself across the bed to reach it before it interrupted anybody's sleep. The name on the screen read Mikaela.

'Hey M, what's up?'

'Oh I'm sorry Ellie! But just for tonight, could I come sleep in your room? I heard something rustling in the corner of your old bed, and now I can't sleep.'

I stifled a laugh and replied, 'Yeah sure just don't let anyone catch you.'

'Thankyou so much El,' Mikaela said, before hanging up.

A few moments later Mikaela had arrived at the door and I got out of bed to open it. She smiled at me, before walking into the bedroom. I just chuckled and rolled my eyes at her, and I went into the kitchen to get a glass of water before I tried sleep again.

I heard the shower turn off, so I walked back into the bedroom. I stopped in my tracks, as Mikaela lay, fast asleep, not on my bed, but Harry's. At this moment, Harry chose to walk out of the bathroom, half clothed, and he stopped as well, looking at Mikaela in his bed.

Trying not to look at Harry, or his body, I slowly climbed into my own bed and lay under the covers. Seconds later, I heard the covers being pulled up next to me, and I quickly turned around to see Harry getting under as well.

I shot him a disgusted look and I continued to try and stare him down. 'Can't you just sleep on the floor, or next to Mikaela or something?' I whispered fiercely at him. He just smiled.

'Well the floor is too uncomfortable, and why would I when there is a perfectly good spot right next to you Ell Ell?'

I just huffed angrily, but I felt tingles at the thought of Harry, who was half naked, and was lying less than a metre away from me. I noticed his Spiderman boxers, and I tried to muffle my laughs, but sounds still came out. He sat up next to me with a cheeky smile.

'What's so funny?'

'You're boxers,' I said with a smile. But the next part I said without meaning to. 'I remember similar boxers that you used to wear, when, remember? That time when you came over to mine and we had that sleepover?'

A smiled forming across his lip told me that he did remember. 'And do you remember that time that you came over to mine, and we pretended that we were spies the whole time, and it was only until we accidentally hit Gemma whie somersaulting down the hallways, did my mum tell us to stop?'

I laughed at his story. 'And do you remember Haz,' I said in a quiet voice, 'Do you remember Haz when we lay in bed together, exactly like this, and we said we would be best friends forever?'

The smile faded from his face. 'What happened to us Ellie?'

There was a pause. 'Well,' I said. 'Do you remember when there was that time, when you started, I don't know, kissing girls pretty much every single day?'

Harry's head shot up at me. 'You remember?'

I slowly nodded. 'Well, it er, it sort of hurt me, because...because you were my friend, and...I was feeling protective...' I couldn't tell him the full truth. About my true feelings for him.

Harry slowly shuffled closer to me. 'I'm sorry Ellie, I didn't mean to hurt you, I....I did it because I was like madly in love with... someone, and I was just trying to ... I don't know... get over them. I didn't love any of those girls.' He took a deep breath. 'And I am truly sorry about what happened afterwards. They were getting on my nerves, constantly clingy, and so I took it out on you, I'm sorry.'

'Well,' I said. 'I was feeling a that is why I kissed your friend. I am so sorry Haz.'

'Well I guess after that, I made your life a living hell. I know no words will ever be enough to make up for what I did. But I will find a way to make you forgive me.' His hands moved up to my face and cradled it. I looked into his eyes, which burned with something, I couldn't pick it. His lips moved up to my face and slowly pressed themselves on my forehead.

As his hands left my face and he rolled back into bed, my heart rate slowly decreased.

'Goodnight Ellie.'

'Goodnight Haz.'
