16. Back At Harry's


When Harry said ‘I want her to be mine’ it instantly reminded me of Niall. Niall said that to me, but I rejected him. “If she does become yours, do not in any way hurt her.” He nodded in agreement.  Casey actually had a crush on a guy in her study hall, John Luke, but I think Harry is being really serious about liking her.

We pull up into his driveway and Louis burst out of the house when me and Harry got out of the car and hugged me. I was really pissed off with Louis, I trusted him to keep the secret of Niall and I and he goes and tells his friends. I freed myself from his hug and took my bag inside. “You can sleep with us if you want.” Harry suggested.  I put my things in Harry’s room and went back downstairs. Louis and Harry were sitting on the couch watching some telly; I sat down on the floor my back laid against Harry’s legs as he played with my hair.  “This is a three-person couch; you can sit in the middle.” Louis spoke up. I turned my head to him, “I’m fine here.” He looked shocked and his eyes filled with despair. I turned back towards to telly; I could hear Harry and Louis whispering.  “Liz, can I see you outside please?” Louis asked. I got up from the floor and made my way to the front porch of Harry’s house with Louis behind me.

“Did I do something wrong?” He asked.  “Yes you did!” my voice started to spark. “Please tell me what I did.” He said with attitude. “You want to know what you did wrong. You told your friends about what Niall did to me. What he did was really embarrassing to me and now three more people know about it and whoever they tell.” I started to tear up. “Liz, they would have found out anyways. If I didn’t tell them they would go to Niall and ask him! Liz, I’m sorry I shouldn’t have told them.” His voice began to crack he had a lump in his throat. I came to him and hugged him very tight.  He wrapped his arms around me and rested his head on my shoulder, he began to cry. I stood there with my hands around him, comforting him. “I-I-I’m so s-sorry!” he whispered in my ear. I placed one of my hands on the back of his head, messing up his hair in the back. We hugged and made up –as always-; he was still sniffling so I gave him a peck on the cheek to try to cheer him up. I grabbed his hand and I opened the door.

Louis POV

I felt like an ass for telling the boys about Niall and Liz’s thing. This made me feel guilty as ever, she just forgave me so that I would stop crying I know it. We went back inside Harry’s house and sat down on the couch, now Liz was on the right of me and in-between me and Harry. Harry and my conversation earlier was very straight forward.  He had told me everything that Liz told him, so I already knew why she was mad at me.

Liz laid her head on my shoulder and stretched out across Harry, before we knew it she was asleep. I lifted her up and went up the stairs to Harry’s room and laid her down on his bed. I walked back down stairs and sat next to Harry. “Oh, just to let you know we are going to Zayn’s tomorrow.” He said. I nodded.


I woke up in a strange bed, a strange room. It was in the morning so the natural light helped me see around the room. I saw a lot of pictures of girls with a cute guy, it was Harry. ‘Harry?’ I thought, and then I remembered that I was at his house for the weekend. “Are you up?” Louis asked kocking softly on the door. “Yeah I am. I’m just looking at these pictures.” I said, Louis coming toward me. “Harry’s a flirt. He says he loves them then dumps them the next day. He has never had a stable relationship.” He tells me while looking at the pictures; this makes me worry about him and Casey, what if he just wants to play her too? “I have too!” Harry shouts from the other side of the room. Louis smirks, “Lies, all lies! Oh yeah, Liz we are going to Zayn’s house today. So you need to get dressed.” I nod and get a pair of bluish-white skinny jeans with a white shirt that has a mustache on it saying ‘Mr. Mustache’ on top of it. I get my grey with white polka-dot Toms and head down stairs to find Harry.

I went down stairs and found Harry in the kitchen with a lady. “Hey Liz! This is my mum. Mum this is Liz.” He said. His mum reaches her hand out and I met it with mine. “Hi darling, I’m Anne. Would you like anything to eat?” I smile and nod. She fixes me eggs and bacon and I sit down by Harry who had just gotten his third plate of eggs and four more pieces of bacon. “Mum, when is Gemma coming home?” He asked with his mouth full. “She will be home late tomorrow night; she went over to Allie’s house for the weekend.” Anne said. Louis came rushing down the stairs screaming, “Come on guys! We’re going to be late! The other lads are already over at Zayn’s!”  “Louis calm down. It’ll be okay if you’re a few minutes late. Now, fix yourself a plate and then you can go.” Anne told him.

After we all finished eating we all hopped into Harry’s car and headed for Zayn’s house. Ten minutes later we arrived at a modern looking home. We got out and rang the doorbell. The door opened and standing there was Zayn with the other the other two behind him. Harry went inside and started a conversation with Liam. I really did not feel comfortable being around the guys, they know what happened.  The boys ran following Zayn to his room, Harry came back and saw me still standing where I had been for the last seven minutes. He gave me a hand and led me to Zayn’s room opening the door.

Harry POV

I opened up the door going to Zayn’s room, “Okay guys, put up the Playboy magazines we got a lady in here.” I snickered. They laugh and continue their conversations. Liz found her way to Louis and laid her head down on Louis’ lap and he played with her hair while he was talking to Niall. “I’m so jealous of Louis right now!” I said sarcastically. “You should be!” She laughed. I saw Niall glance at her for a minute before returning to focus on his conversation with Lou. I would not let him hurt her again; I wanted him to stop staring at her. He looked at me and I decided to give him a look, he quickly turned his head back to Louis. Liz whispered something to Louis and he whispered back, she got up and left the room.

“Who wants to play a game?” Zayn asked. We all raised our hand. “Alright, what do we want to play?” He asked us. “Capture the flag!” Liam yelled. “What’s going to be the flag?” Harry questioned. “Liz can be one.” Louis said. We went quiet for a moment before Zayn said, “Okay... Liz is one flag what’s the other going to be?”  “We can use Mr. Piggles.”I said knowing the answer. “Hell no! We will not use him!” Zayn argued. “Let’s use your dog then.” Liam said. Zayn nodded and went to go find Dr. Pegs (don’t ask why he named his yorkie that). We picked teams and the game had started.
