I Finally Found You (Completed)

Today, my name is Olivia Moore. But, it used to be Erin Parker. I had grown up with a normal life in Holmes Chapel, England. I had two of the best parents a child could have. Though I didn’t have any siblings, I had a best friend, Harry.

But, that all changed two years ago. Why? Because I died...or at least that’s what everyone thought. They all thought that I was in a car explosion when I was 16, when someone had planted a car bomb. My friends, family, and anyone I had ever known lost me.

But in reality, none of that happened. Yes, I lost the people around me, but that was because I went into hiding. Three days before I “died,” I saw something that I shouldn't have, so my life was in danger. I didn't really have very much time to say goodbye to everyone I loved. The fact that they didn't know what really happened kills me, they all think I’m dead, that I’m never going to come back. Until now.

30. Chapter 29




I sat outside of Laurel's and Kylie's door, contemplating on whether or not I should say anything about Harry. Should I tell them out of spite of Olivia? Or should I keep quiet because if she didn't tell me, there would be no way that she would be happy with me telling them? 

I wasn't sure.  

Actually, I had no idea. 

Well, here I go. I knocked on the door, to see if anyone was home. Laurel opened up to me, "Hey! What're you doing here?" she asked, letting me in. 

"I missed class, so I need notes from Kylie." I said, which wasn't a lie. 

"Oh, why?" 

"I forgot my subway pass and...got held up." Again, wasn't a complete lie.  

She sighed and shook her head jokingly, "Why don't you keep it in your purse?" 

"I do, but it somehow ends up on my dresser every time I go home. By then, I don't think about it when I have to leave," I shrugged. 

"What's Liv doing today? I haven't talked to her in awhile." 

“Well she's hanging out with Harry Styles from One Direction, the boy band that has girls drooling over them. Yeah anyway, she didn't tell anyone, not even her best friend. She didn’t say she knew him, or is let alone dating him.”  But I didn't say that, "She's studying with someone today." 

In the back of my mind, I honestly thought that this entire time, I would be venting to Laurel about the whole Olivia and Harry thing. But that obviously didn't happen. My brain reacted in the way for me not to say anything, so that's what happened. 

"Who? A guy possibly?" 

"Yeah, I sort of met him for the first time today, so I don't think you've met him either," I said, still not lying.

"Oh." She looked disappointed. I guessed it was because she had been trying to set Olivia up with someone for over a year now, and she had led to be unsuccessful every time.  




Eventually Kylie showed up. I got my notes from her and no, I didn’t mention the Harry and Olivia situation. I only told her the same things that I told Laurel earlier. But with that much information, she seemed excited. 

"Finally! God, that girl has been needin’ a boy in her life for quite awhile," Kylie said. You see, for as we had known Olivia, she had never had a boyfriend or even considered it really. She was pretty much dead set on school, actually saying that there was no time for boys at one point. Well I guess her schedule had opened up, but I guess anyone's would for Harry Styles.  

"I know right? Tell her that we want to meet him ASAP," Laurel said. Well if Liv never wanted me to meet him, I doubt she'll want them to meet them. Unless, once again, we weren’t as close as I thought we were in the first place.

My bitterness towards Olivia right now felt, well, deserving. She kind of brought this on herself. She had plenty of chances to tell me, but no, she chose not to. But as I was feeling bitter, I felt bad. She was my best friend, so I should forgive her.

But that's just it! She was my best friend, so she should've told me in the first place! Especially if she was dating a famous person! 

I didn't really know what to do. But I decided, on a whim, that I couldn't tell Laurel and Kyle anything. Besties stick together, right? After saying goodbye to the girls, I started back to the apartment, wanting to talk to Olivia about this. Even though I had basically said that I didn't want to earlier, I did now. I wanted her to explain to me why she never said anything. And of course, how they met in the first place.




After taking the elevator up, I walked right on into our apartment. I knew the door wasn't locked, because I doubt Olivia took the time to latch it. The lights were off, which meant that she was either out with Harry or asleep. Checking the time to see that it was almost 11:30, I guessed that she was sleeping on a school night. 

I crept over to her room after taking off my trench coat and brown boots. Not bothering to turn on the lights, I knelt by her bed and shook her shoulder to wake her. It didn't take very long though, "Mia? Oh Mia I'm so sorry!" she said as she sat up to hug me.  

"Just talk to me, please. Why didn't you tell me?" 

She moved her legs up so I could sit on the bed with her. She turned on the lamp "I was afraid on how you would react. How do I explain that I am dating a famous person? It sounds crazy. I mean, you just don't walk up to Harry Styles everyday and give him your number without looking like another fangirl." 

"Wait, you gave him your number?" 

She nodded her head in response to me. "I'm so sorry that I didn't tell you. I honestly don't know why I didn't. I think I just wanted to test everything out before anyone knew."

"I just can't believe that you didn't give him my number too," I tried to act dramatic when saying this, but we both ended up laughing in the end. 

"Do you want me to give your number to Niall or something? But I don't think Trevor would be too happy about that," she said shaking my shoulder.

"You've met the other boys?" I asked, completely ignoring her previous statement. 

"You have too, remember at H&M?"

"Yes, but that was fangirl me. They haven't met the real me. We should have them all over one night, just to hang out." 

"Depends on their schedule. Harry says that they're going to get even busier as time goes on," she said. It sounded like just a statement, but it had another meaning. She was sad because she would start seeing less and less of Harry as the days went by. 

"Well Laurel and Kylie want to meet him," I told her.

"So you told them?" she asked.

"I only told them that you were studying with a boy today, not who."

"Thank you," she said smiling, "But I should tell them, shouldn't I? So that I don't end up like this again?"

“I just don’t want them to meet him like I did. I don’t know how frustrated they’ll get. But take your time." I wanted to give her a break. After looking in her point of view, it didn't sound very easy to explain everything. 

"So you forgive me?"

"Yeah, of course. Just tell me next time, agreed?" 


"But Laurel and Kylie are extremely happy for you. Though Laurel was disappointed that you're not with a guy that she set you up with," I said laughing.

"Oh god, how many boys did she try over the years?"

"I can't even count that many. Remember that one where 'you should go out with him because you both love chicken?' She was being a little desperate there." 

"Just a little," Olivia said with a sarcastic eye roll.

"So when is Harry coming over again? I want to properly meet him this time." He probably thought I was an unreasonable person after today.

"Well, he said that he won't come over until me and you work everything out. So tomorrow night?"

"Cool, can't wait. Do you guys ever go out somewhere other than here?" I asked.

She frowned, "We did once, but after that, I don't know if we will again." 

"Why not?"

"Well I don't want to be seen in the public eye. Paparazzi are like my worst nightmare and Harry understands."

"Well, I guess you should go back to sleep. You have an early class tomorrow right?"

"Yeah, but it's a photography class, so it's all good," she said seeming excited about it.

"Good night." We hugged again and I left her room to go get ready for bed. 

Today had actually ended in a good way. I honestly thought it would end with us still in a fight. Okay, we weren't really in a huge fight, but there was a lot of tension between us in the beginning. But that was all gone now, which felt awesome.

But most of all, I couldn’t believe that I might be meeting all of One Direction at one point. I just had to tell myself no pictures, no autographs, no fangirling, none of that, and I should be good!
