That One Cheerleader

You'd think that someone who has had a crazy past would sometime in their life become normal again? We'll just have to see about that, especially when Autumn meets a new Irish boy, only to later on make her meet the boy of her dreams. What'll happen if Niall likes the girl? Who gets her? I guess you'll just have to read to find out what happens in Autumn's love life, and maybe even discover the sad, terrible past of hers as well!

Will there be a way to make Autumn feel complete again?


31. Chapter 31

Harry's POV


"C'mon Autumn you need to believe me! I had no clue!" I begged, after about a half an hour of trying to get her back. Everyone is back at Marissa's house now, while we're still sitting on her bed, fighting over what happened. It turns out Gertrude set us up. And I still have yet to confront her.

"You just don't understand Harry.." She said, keeping her eye level low to the floor. I began to become a bit angered that she thought I didn't understand my own girlfri- I mean friend(for now).

"I think I understand you Autu-"

"Oh yeah? You understand Harry?!" She jumped up quickly, frightening me a bit, and went on a bit more angered than before, "Yeah sure Harry you totally understand everything because you've been in the same exact position! You're first love breaks up with you over text, finds out it's a misunderstanding, and right when he wanted her back, you know what Harry? He couldn't have her! Do you know why that is??" She eyed me, angrier than ever. I dropped my eyes and there was a sharp pain in my heart.

"Why." I whispered, knowing I would anger her if I didn't answer. She finished whispering, "That's because he broke her, even though he knew how terrible things were for her. He let her go when she needed him most. And mainly Harry... That man believed Gertrude over herself. He didn't give that girl a chance to explain herself." Tears spilled out of my eyes, and I wearily looked up to see her grab the one pillow on her bed and hold it into a tight embrace. A tear spilled from her eye, making me break into more and more tears. "You don't have to care anymore Harry. Trust me, I wouldn't love me either." She whispered, rubbing her eyes, sniffling as she let her eyes fall towards the floor.

"You and I both know that I care. Look Autumn, some people deserve second chances in life. If you could just let me prove how much I could love you, I would do it in a heartbeat. Just please- I really love you." I finished sniffling. I grabbed her right hands, and she didn't pull away, but yet she didn't answer. Instead she whispered, "What else did Gertrude do?" I

I grabbed a tissue and wiped my eyes, before saying, "She came by my place after I sent you the text. She huh-" I couldn't finish because I knew I would be so ashamed of it. "She what Harry?" She said, looking up slowly.

"She tried kissing me. But wait! It meant nothing! I swear!" She took her hand and put it in her lap with her other hand, looking back down, clearly disappointed with me. "Autumn, if there's anything, and I mean anything I can do to mend your broken heart, I promise I will do it."

"Even if it takes forever?" She whispered turning towards me, taking my hands for a change. Our faces became very close, and I soothe, "Even if it takes forever." We closed our eyes slowly, and I went in, not knowing if it was right or wrong. It had to be right, because we're right. We kissed, it was so meaningful and I felt so much happier and connected to her then I ever had before. Suddenly, after a few seconds of realization, she pulled away fast.

"I'm sorry Harry." She pleaded, looking down. I could see it in her body language that she wasn't actually sorry. "Harry? Can we just take a break? But like, promise each other not to do anything with anyone else? It would really help."

My heart shattered. I didn't wanna lose her, but I guess I need to let her, if I want to save her. I nodded slowly, before replying, "Of course." We both looked to the ground, and I piped up, "Is it just okay if I can have one last kiss until we leave for Florida?" She nodded awkwardly, "Sure, but you know I love you right Harry?" She looked me in my eyes and her expression hardened.

"I- I know you do. I just don't understand why you want a break if you love me so? I can help you Autumn." I reassured for what felt like the ten millionth time.

"I know Harry, you probably could and maybe would. But I just need to learn to stop harming myself and I need to learn to impress everybody, like the cheerleaders, my dad, everyone at the new school-"

"You don't need to impress anybody Autumn. That's because you already impress them enough. If it's not enough for some reason, then who really cares for them? Autumn I love you, and I'm positive you're perfect. You can't let me go. I will help. Please, if you need the time, I will give it to you, but I really think taking a break isn't the best thing to do."

"And what's the best thing to do?" She whispered, wanting for me to say the obvious words and mean them.

"I want to stay together Autumn."

"O-Okay Harry."
