Kate's pov


" come on babe, race you!" Harry called

"No fair, you... Never mind!"

We ran all the way over to safaa. I beat Harry by a bit.

" your a girl so your lighter than me!" 

" that's no excuse Harry your older than me and your taller so..."

" shut up I'm only older than you by a few months."

" nope your older by 10 months and 11 days. So technically a year."

"...oh yeah, "

I gave safaa 5 dollars and she played. They gave her three balls. 

" Harry you go first," she said.

"If you insist.."

He threw the ball and made it.

" ok Kate your turn."

" yeah, alright."

I threw and made it.

" my turn!!" 

She threw and made it!

We ended up winning a big stuffed tiger. 

" you guys are amazing! Thank you!" 

" no problem.. Now lets go play another." Harry said.

We walked around and found an ice cream booth. 

" what do you want girls?"

" umm, I'll take peppermint." Safaa said.

He went over to me and whispered in my ear, " you know I'm not going to let you pay right?" 

I turned around and faced him      " yeah you are."

" no I'm not watch me."

"...I ." 

He put a hand over my mouth to silence me." One peppermint and two chocolate chip please."

"Here you are.." The lady gave them to us and Harry payed. 

" you know you too make a good couple together." She said.

" I... No.. He's already dating, we're just friends."

"Ok." She winked at me. 

Gosh everyone's been doing that today I don't know why.  We walked around and found a picnic table.

Safaa sat in front of us and I sat by Harry. 

"Guys I'm finished can I play with the other kids on the playground?"

" yeah, go ahead."

We watched her run off and play. 

I turned towards Harry and he frowned. 

" what..?"

" you told her I was dating.."

" and?"

"We could of had her believe we were together."

" Harry. I'm pretty sure if taylor were there she would have wanted me to say that so..." 

" still .... You know I always wanted to be with a Girl who had brunette hair and blue or green eyes. I found her, but it was too late."

" not really." I whispered.

He lifted his head up and smiled. I smiled back. I poked  his dimples,

" you know I've always wanted to do that."

" poke my dimples?!"

" yeah ."

" but you have your own to poke."

" mines aren't That deep styles."

" yeah they are... Smile!"

I smiled and he poked mine.

" haha, your adorable!"

" thank you, not so bad yourself." 


I giggled.

" what?"

" Your so cute when you laugh!"

" thank you princess! " and we started laughing some more.

He never really called me princess before. Huh. 

 I stopped laughing and put my head on the table. I looked up at him. He cocked his head to the side and looked back.

" what are you thinking about babe?"

" you were so stressed and mad at me this morning .. I'm sorry."

" nah don't worry about it."

" THERE YOU ARE HAZZ!!"taylor called. She ran over. Liam, Danielle, Zayn, and the others followed. 

" there you guys are, we've been looking all over the fair. Where's safaa?" Zayn asked. 

" she's over there." I told him pointing to a happy safaa playing on the swings. 

He walked over to her, perrie in his hand.

They were so cute together. I don't know why they got hate.

" so what did you guys do while we were gone." Taylor asked.

" games, ice cream, and well here." Harry replied.

Zayn and perrie came back with safaa. 

" the lady that gave us the ice cream thought that Harry and Kate were DATING!!!" Safaa giggled.

Oh no! Zayn gave her a ice cold glare. Everyone sat stiffly.

" why would she think that?! We're y'all kissing and holding hands!!!??"

" No, I Wouldn't do that..!" I yelled.

"  ha, we'll see about that." Taylor said. Uh oh ...

" guys I'm not feeling so well, lets go." Perrie said.

" yeah.." Everyone agreed.

" I think I'll stay for a bit.." I said.

Safaa walked over to me and motioned for me to bend down.

I did and she whispered in my ear," sorry I didn't mean for taylor to get mad at you. Can I stay with you? I'm still not used to being around them without you, please?" 

I looked at her and smiled.

" of course love, and don't worry about it." 

She smiled and I got up. I slipped my hand through hers. 

" Zayn, safaa is staying with me alright?"

" ok then. Bye."

"Bye!!!" Safaa called. 

I knelt down and kissed her cheek. 

" your absolutely adorable, you know that right,?"

"Yeah, I get that alot."

She laughed and I grinned. "I'll be right back I have to use the restroom."

" ok don't take too long ill be here when you get out."

" ok"

I sat down on the table, my feet on the seat. When I saw taylor coming towards me. I got up.

" look harry thinks I'm using the restroom right now, so lets make this quick, LEAVE HARRY ALONE!! He doesn't want you. And he doesn't need you. " she then kicked my shin and I fell. 

"Taylor, you don't understand him. What do you do to him that can make him so exhausted?"

" oh shut up!" 

She ran off towards his car and left me there. 

Safaa wasn't back yet so I sat on the bench and looked at the bruise. Damn. It wasn't too big but not too small either. And it looked just like any bruise would, and it hurt.. A lot.  Luckily it was behind my leg and not in front so no one would notice it.

Safaa came back with a scared look on her face.

" why did she hit you?! Is it because I told her about you and Harry?!! I'm sorry Kate!!" She hugged me. Oh lord , she saw.

" babe, listen to me, I'm fine she's just mad and well jealous. But please don't tell the boys or Harry who did it? "

"Why not they should know."

" it's more complicated, the girls know and understand but all the boys know is that someone is hurting me. Try don't know who though, ok."

" fine... Lets go home"

I grabbed her hand and we walked home, although the pain in my leg was unbearable. As we were walking I checked the time. 5:00 pm wow time flew by fast. We went inside. I snuck upstairs while everyone else was in The living room talking and laughing.

I took off my clothes and put on a   maroon long sleeved sweater and sweatpants. They covered my bruise. I sneaked to the restroom and lifted my leg up. I washed it and put an Ice pack on then I sneaked back to my room. I locked the door just in case... 

KNOCK KNOCK I put the ice pack up and covered my leg. I opened the door.It was Louis. Eleanor was behind him.I smiled at them.

" hey guys..what's up!"

" ok here wait lets come in..." He said.

" ok.." Eleanor gave me an apologetic look, while I gave her a questioning one.

" when you came in, me and el were standing by the couch and noticed you going up stairs. We also noticed the bruise on your leg. Can I see it?" Louis said.

I sighed.  

" fine.." I pulled up my sweatpants and showed them. Eleanor cringed. And Louis frowned.

" who did this?! You have to know! It wasn't there when we left cause you seemed fine. And there was light in the sky so you had to have seen who kicked you! You know what...HEY GUYS GET IN HERE!!!"

" Louis no!!! "

" what's up Lou!" Harry said peeking his head in the room. He looked around then saw my bruise. I started to cover it up but it was too late he grabbed my hands and pulled it back. 

".... Who?! Kate who's doing this to you??!!!"

" what's going on..? LORD! Kate what going on who's hurting you!!!" Zayn yelled.

" everyone else silently filed into the room.

I cringed at the sound of zayns voice. 

" gosh guys! I'm 18 so I can legally take care of myself! I'm not a baby!"

" then can you explain this.."

I looked at taylor and she gave me a cold stare. I knew if I told something bad would happen. 

" nothing I promise, it was just an accident. I was walking and a lady accidentally kicked me with her heel in the shin."

They all looked at me suspiciously.

" so can I go now?"

" no.. Not yet. Look Kate we don't want you to feel like we are accusing you or that we don't believe you it's just that.... I don't want to see my baby girl hurt. Ok?"

I walked over to him and smiled. "Zayn babe, I promise if anything really bad happens ill tell you it's just nothing's going on right now ok?"

He smiled back and hugged me. I wrapped my arms around his waist and took in his familiar smell. I knew absolutely everything about him. He was a brother I never had.

" I wanna hug too!" Safaa yelled.

" aww me too." Perrie followed. Soon everyone was in a group hug except taylor... She left after a while.. Claiming she had a movie to go to with a friend. 

I was sorta suspicious. She's been hanging around a lot with this friend.
