Be My Summer Love

Two girls, Alyssa and Isabelle, run away in hopes of a better future. When they get into a car accident, they meet 5 boys that change their life.


12. Shopping

Alyssa's POV

We decided to watch some movies once we'd finished the game of truth or dare. Izzy fell asleep during the middle of the second one we watched. Harry sat down next to me and we started talking after Liam had put in a third movie. We got to know each other a little better, allowing me to feel more comfortable about opening up to him. After all, we were staying with them. That got me thinking about what we were going to do next. We obviously couldn't live with them for a while; they had better things to do. 

I started to yawn and he shyly placed his arm near me. I slowly leaned into his embrace and got more relaxed against him until I fell asleep.


Harry's POV

I looked over at Perrie, Alyssa, Danielle, Isabelle, and Eleanor all sleeping over random parts of the living room. Louis came over from the kitchen and stood next to me.

"We should wake them up right?" I asked him.

"Yeah probably. El told me if I didn't wake her up on time, she wouldn't be able to go shopping and she'd be beyond pissed if that happened," He sighed. I looked at Alyssa who was fast asleep. I walked over to her and rubbed her arm, trying to wake her up. She slowly opened her eyes then brought her hands up to rub them. I grinned and looked at her starting to sit up. 

"Hello," I smiled.

"Hi," she yawned, looking at her clothes from yesterday that she'd slept in. "Shit, I'd better get changed." Her hair was up in a cute loose bun and her shirt was hanging off one of her shoulders.


"We put your suitcase in my room and Isabelle's is in Zayn's," I said.

She nodded, still groggy and made her way to my room. I watched her walking out in admiration. Niall was still working on waking Isabelle up; nothing was working. 

Alyssa came back into the living room with a pair of black skinny jeans, a green flannel, and the same black converse she had on at the hospital. She looked even better than when I first met her, now much less sleep deprived. She smiled, seeing Niall's failing attempts at waking her best friend up.

"Try opening the curtains or something," she chuckled. Niall walked over to the windows above the couch and spread the curtains quickly, making Isabelle flinch immediately and cover her eyes. Niall laughed and watched her scramble to find darkness. 

"Rise and shine!" he joked. Isabelle stretched her arms and looked over at Alyssa.

"Morning," she yawned, sitting up. Everyone was up now and walking around the kitchen looking for food.

"Hey, do you guys want to go shopping with Danielle, Perrie, and I?" Eleanor asked, taking a bite out of a pop tart.

"That sounds great but we didn't pack much money." Alyssa shrugged.

"We'll sort it out,"  Louis offered. "I kind of wanted to go shopping as well." 

"We can't take your money. I mean, you're already letting us stay here." she said back.

"Trust us, it's fine," Zayn said and I nodded, agreeing.

They weren't replying so I said, "That's a yes! Let's go to the mall!"

We headed out and split up. Alyssa and I in my car, Niall and Isabelle in Niall's car, Danielle, Perrie, Liam, and Zayn in Liam's car, and Eleanor and Louis in Louis' car. We started driving to the nearest mall silently.

"So if you don't mind me asking, what happened to Isabelle?" I broke the silence. 

"Her parents would usually come home drunk then start beating her. They would even beat her when I was there. I would have to just sit there because if I moved, I would get beaten too," She answered. 

"I'm sorry about what happened to you guys. I can see why you wanted to get away" I said. "So besides that, tell me about yourself."

"What do you want to know?"

"I don't know, like, what are some of your favorite things?" I asked.

"Um, I like music, rom coms, Chinese food, and dogs," She chuckled.

"What kind of music do you listen to?" I inquired.

"I have a wide variety of genres of music I like. Pretty much everything, I think." She paused. "I used to hate country music then I got hooked on Tim McGraw."

"That's awesome," I said as I pulled into a parking space near the mall. "We're here."

We got out and met up with the rest of them. Alyssa shivered and I shyly put my arm around her, rubbing up and down. We went into one of the first stores we saw. Zayn was with Liam, looking at some jeans while the girls were spread throughout the store. 

"Hey, Alyssa! Look at this shirt! It'd look amazing on you!" Eleanor said. She walked over to where El and Louis were and took the shirt. I turned around, seeing a couple of fans coming into the store. I took a few pictures with them and signed some things. I found some shirts for me and tried them on. 

We all paid for our things and as we were heading to a different store, Alyssa froze in her tracks then started running in the other direction. We saw a couple of people chasing her. We knew it couldn't be good so we chased after her and we found her about 6 stores down, in a corner being kicked on the ground.

"Alyssa!" I yelled. We ran over and once they saw us, they ran off. She looked like she was in a daze and couldn't directly look at my eyes. She whimpered as I helped her up and I saw she was already forming bruises. 

"Who were they?" Eleanor asked concernedly. Isabelle gave Alyssa a worried look and she nodded back.

"So they are the people who bullied you in your school?" I asked.  

"Yeah, but I'm lucky they went softer on me this time," She trembled. We had her sit down when I noticed her gray t-shirt had a red spot on the sleeve. I lifted it up and saw a large scratch.

"Oh my gosh," Perrie grasped and grabbed her other hand, taking her to the bathroom to get cleaned up. 

When they came back out, I gave her a hug to try to comfort her. She rested her head on chest and thanked me.
