15. The Car Talk


The next couple of days flew by, then came Friday. As we got out of Louis’ car Liam greeted us. “Hey guys! So I heard that you two are staying at Harry’s for the weekend” “Yeah we are, where is Harry? I need to know if we are riding home with him, or if I should bring my car to his house.” Louis asked. “He’s probably inside. I’ll pray for you Liz!” Liam said walking away from us. I looked at Louis concurringly. He draped his arm around my shoulder “It’ll be fun Liz! 48 hours of just you, Harry, and me!”  “Yeah because that sounds so fun.” I said sarcastically.  He smirked and walked away from me to talk to Harry who he saw near his locker. I walked to Casey “Hey Chic!” She jumped a little and turned around. “Liz! You scared me!” She said punching my arm. “What? Ha-ha I’m just here to bright up everyone’s day!” I said cheerfully. Before she could say anything the bell rang and we darted through the hallway to go to English.

The rest of the day dragged on, Mr. Thomas was teaching about WWII when the bell rang. I ran out of the classroom and to my locker. Harry was waiting by his locker and I walked towards him. “Hey Lizzy!” He said winking at me. I smile at him and Louis comes out of the math hall. “Hey Harry, are we ready to go?” He asked. “Yeah, Liz is going to ride home with me.” Harry said winking at me again. Louis looked at me and looked back at Harry. “Why can’t she just come with me? I know how to get to your house.” “Because Louis, I have to stop at the store real quick to get things that I have never heard of for my mum. She may know what it is and that way I can get home quicker.” Harry said smiling at Lou. “*sigh* Okay. Call me when you leave the store.” He said giving a serious look to Harry.

Harry and I got into his 2008 corvette and headed off to the store. When we got to where the store was he past straight by it. “Harry? The store is that way.” I said pointing behind us. “I know.” He said grinning. ‘Please don’t let this happen again. Don’t let Harry act like Niall.’ I thought. We arrived at our destination, an empty parking lot. “Uh Harry? What are we doing here?” I asked nervously. “Just to talk.” He answered looking off into the distance. I became uncomfortable; I unbuckled my seatbelt and reached for the door handle, when Harry locked it. “Liz, you will not leave.” He commanded. “What the hell do you want?” “I just want to talk to you alone,” He said loudly. “About what” I asked.  “I... uh I need to tell you something.” “Okay, what do you need to tell me?”  “I think I’m falling for Casey...” I stared at him blankly as the words came out of his mouth.

Harry POV

As I told her what I brought her here for, she kept staring at me. “You what?” She asked. “I like Casey. I just needed you to know. I had to tell someone, I couldn’t hold it in anymore. Please don’t tell anyone, I trust you.” I said looking at the steering wheel.  “If I promise to keep this a secret will you tell me something that has really been bothering me?” she questioned me. “Yeah!  What do you want to know?”  “Okay, on the first day of school, why did all you guys leave Niall to be alone at lunch. Liam and Louis would have been fine to just be with us, but the rest of you guys came and Niall was eating lunch alone.” I knew she would ask this question one day, “We just wanted to keep you safe. Louis told us what happened after the rest of us lef-““LOUIS TOLD YOU!?!” Liz screamed, interrupting me.  “Calm down, it was pretty obvious that something happened. Niall never came to your house anymore, Louis didn’t come over to Niall’s, and Niall stopped talking about you. So I asked Louis a couple days before school started what was going on, when it was me, him, Liam, and Zayn. He told us the whole story; we all had the same grudge on Niall.” She looked shocked, “Wait, so Zayn and Liam know too?” I nodded. I don’t think that we can really and truly forgive Niall for what he did.

 Liz’s phone went off and she took it out of her pants pocket, she looked at it and then handed the phone to me. I took the phone from her hand and answered it. “Hello?” I asked into the phone. “Harry, where the hell have you been? I’ve been at your house for over an hour! Are you guys done shopping?” Louis asked. “Yeah Lou, we’re on our way.” I pressed the end button and handed the phone back to its owner. I start the car and begin to drive toward my house.

About half way to my house Liz says,” How much do you like her?”  “Who? Casey? She has pure beauty. Her silky blonde hair; her ocean-blue eyes are just accessories toward her inner beauty.  I want her to be mine.” I answer with confidence.
