Back for You -- NOT *ON HOLD*

Brandin was a normal girl with a normal life. That is, until her long time friend and crush Liam Payne decides to visit her after leaving her when trying out for the X-Factor. What will happen when she gets close to another band member? And when a death and mysterious texts and letters float around, who will get hurt? Will they heal from the pain?

This is my first movella... please give me feedback it's much appreciated!


12. Harry? You... What?

I woke up at 9am. I rolled over and looked at Lex. I giggled. She was sprawled out with her hand in her open mouth and her sheets in a tangled mess around her legs. I got up and started kicking her side lightly.

"Geeeet uuuup." I whined. She groaned.

"Five more minutes..." I sighed and crouched down next to her.

"Lex, do I HAVE to get the Bucket?" I whispered in her ear. She shot up.

"I'm up, I'm up." She groggily stood up and walked around. I laughed. We had a joke that when we slept over we could wake the other girl up with a bucket full of ice water if she didn't get up. You only make that mistake once.

It took us about half an hour to get ready before we could leave. I texted my mom where we were going and we got into my car to drive to Liam's.

We got there and I knocked on the door. When I knocked it creaked open a few inches. I glanced at Lex and opened the door slowly. Knowing these boys they were planning something.

The door was almost open when it banged into something. I looked around and saw two nerf guns with a note attached.

"Prepare for battle." I read out loud. "Crap."

Right then, Zayn jumped into the hallway and gave a battle cry. He started shooting us and we screamed. Lex finally got her bearings and shot him in the chest. He looked down and back up.

"You've got quite the shot." He said with his voice full of admiration. He then began to fake die.

"Let's get the others." I whispered. "You take upstairs, I've got the main floor." She nodded and snuck towards the stairs.

I crept along the wall towards the kitchen where I could only guess Niall was. I peeked around the corner and saw it was clear. Weird. I let down my guard and walked in.

"AHHHHH" I heard a voice yell in my ear. I screamed and spun around only to be shot by Niall. I shot him in the forehead. He fell over and gurgled like his mouth was full of blood.

"Gross." I said to him kicking his arm slightly. I heard Liam scream like a girl upstairs. Lex must've scared him.

I snuck very quietly behind the couch only to find Harry looking the opposite way waiting for me. I rolled my eyes and shot him in the head. The bullet fell to the ground because his curls wouldn't stick to the rubber bullet.

"Gotcha." I said to him blowing the end of my gun.

"Liam and Louis were upstairs." He said. "So you got all of us." I nodded.

"Listen, can we talk sometime? About something... kinda personal?" I asked. He looked at me funny.

"Uh, sure." He said. I smiled at him.

"Don't be worried." I said. Louis then bounded down the stairs closely followed by Lex.

"You'll never catch me!" He shrieked. Right then Lex shot him in the middle of the back. He stopped and fell to his knees. He swayed back and forth then fell flat on his face.

"Aha! Got him!" Lex said doing a little victory dance. "I'm Lex by the way, boys." She said quite calmly. Niall looked quite intrigued.

"N-niall." He stammered. Lex smiled at him and gave him a "sup" nod. I rolled my eyes at her. What a flirt.

"I'm Harry, and you've met Louis and Liam I can see." Harry said as Liam cautiously poked his head around the corner of the stairway.

"I'm Zayn." I heard Zayn say from the hallway.

"I've heard a lot about you." Lex said winking at me. I gasped and slapped her arm. Zayn's head poked out of the hallway and grinned at me. I blushed.

"I thought we were over this." I hissed at him. He just laughed.

"Are we missing something here?" Liam ventured.

"Nothing." I said quickly. Lex and Zayn just laughed.

"Oh whatever." He said sitting on the couch.

The rest of the day we just chilled and watched TV. It was around 10pm when we decided to watch a movie. We turned off all the lights and closed the blinds so the only light was coming from the TV. All of a sudden the TV began to buzz and showed "snow" (those black and white crinkles). Louis slowly walked in front of the TV casting a shadow.

"Now." He began using a really scary voice. "Now, I announce what movie we are to watch." He paused dramatically and the TV shut off completely. There was utter silence for a good five seconds.

Then Louis shined a flashlight under his chin making him look really terrifying.

"We are going to watch." Dramatic pause. "Love Actually!" He said in a really girly voice flicking on all the lights.

"Way to scare the life out of me Lou!" I giggled. He winked at me and put the movie in. The boys, Lex, and I were still laughing at Louis when he turned all the lights off again. The only light was coming from the TV.

I was sitting on the end next to Harry. Harry was sitting next to Niall who had fallen asleep from boredom already. I tapped Harry's forearm and motioned to the kitchen. He nodded.

"Sneak out, then I'll grab a 'glass of water'." He whispered very quietly. I nodded slightly and slid to the floor. I did a little crab walk to the kitchen and stood up as I rounded the corner. Harry came in a few minutes later.

"So what's up?" He asked walking over to the sink. "I really am thirsty." He said before he poured a cup.

"Um, well, this may come off weird to you." I began. This was a really awkward conversation that I probably should have planned out. "I think it was the first or second night after I'd met you when I picked a horror movie to watch instead of Toy Story."

"I remember that night." He nodded. I cleared my throat.

"Well, um, you gave me a kinda funny look that night before we watched the movie and you've been acting kind of funny the whole time I've been here and... well, I don't know. I'm just curious. You aren't acting normally." I finished awkwardly. He grinned at me cheekily.

"You don't know how I act... you barely know me!" He said throwing his hands in the air. I giggled.

"True, true. But seriously, what's up with the look?" I asked. He looked down.

"I don't know, I just... I was kind of jealous of Liam." He said shrugging. I was now officially confused.

"Wha-- why?" I asked in shock. He shrugged again.

"I don't know, he just... you were -are- so beautiful and funny and sweet and I was just kinda jealous of him."

"He has Paege you know..." I whispered looking down.

"Maybe, but he doesn't look at her like he looks at you." Harry stated. "Look, I don't want to make things awkward between us, and I don't want to freak you out or anything, but I like you Brandin."

I looked up at him. He was staring at me, his eyes piercing my soul, or that's how it felt. I bit my lip and took a deep breath.

Before I could say something, he spoke again.

"And I know you kissed Zayn." He said. "But I just wanted to let you know how I feel." He started to walk out but I grabbed his arm.

"Harry." I breathed. "I like you too." Why did I say that? Did I? "But I just need to figure some things out right now." He nodded and smiled slightly.

"I'll be here." He said. He kissed my cheek and walked into the living room. I followed behind, hoping his body would hide mine. We sat down together and continued to watch the movie like nothing happened.

It finished at around 1am and I groaned. I'd have to drive home. We turned some of the lights on and I noticed Niall talking to Lex. I grinned.

"Hey you can just stay here tonight." Liam said quietly to us girls.

"Thanks." I murmered.

"Yeah thanks!" Lex said happily. He made a noise in response.

"Dibs on the couch!" Lex said flopping on the comfy couch. I laughed.

"Dibs on the floor - woohoo!" I said halfheartedly. I sat on the floor but felt someone lifting me up bridal style.

"You can stay in my room tonight." I heard Harry whisper. I giggled.

"Mmk." I said.

I fell asleep in Harry's arms tonight. Taylor Swift's lyrics of Sparks Fly ran through my head.


"It's just wrong enough to make it feel right..."
