When i heard the knock on the door i called to my mom that i would get it. I have no clue why but i actually wanted to see Harry again. As soon as he saw me he was grinning and i looked him up and down. He has gotten taller and more mature looking. Maybe i could actually be nice to him, but all thoughts of that were ruined when he opened his mouth. "Hey hot stuff, you can stop missing me now." I rolled my eyes with the sudden disappointment that he hadn't changed. Not thinking twice, i slammed the door right in his face.
"Ava! Open the door right now and let them in." My mom yelled from the kitchen after she heard the bang of the door. I groaned and reopened the door. Ignoring Harry i made a gesture and let everyone into the house. They all found their way into the living room with me following. I noticed Anne and Gemma and went over to hug them.
"That was a nice greeting, but i'm sorry for my son's poor choice of words. All in all it's nice to see you again." Anne said nicely and hugged me once more before heading to the kitchen to help my mom out. Gemma was already engaged in conversation with my dad. I noticed my sister staring at the blonde boy member from Harry's band i think his name's Niall.
As i gazed around the room i saw Harry and another one of his band mates, Louis i think, whispering to each other. Harry kept glancing my way. What was going on? I shrugged it off and went to introduce myself to the other two band members, Liam and Zayn i believe were their names.
"Hello, My name is Avaly." I extended my right hand to Liam. He smiled and shook it. "We know, Harry has talked about you none stop. Oops i don't think i was supposed to say that. Oh well, I'm Liam and this is Zayn." Score! I did get their names right, but more importantly Harry talks about me, i find that hard to believe we hate each other, don't we?
When we were situated in Ava's living room i pulled Louis aside. "How do i bounce back from that? She probably thinks i haven't changed." I asked him while stealing a glance at Avaly. She was talking to Liam and Zayn now. "Just play it cool and try not to make her hate your guts." Louis said jokingly. Ugggh sometimes talking to him wasn't always the best answer.
Louis walked towards the rest of the boys. I watched as Louis said something and Ava started to laugh. I've known her my whole life and i could never get her to laugh but we've only been here 10 minutes and she's all giddy with my band mates. If that's how she wants to play it. Let the games begin.
Regaining my confidence i strutted over to them. "Hey Ava, how's life been treating you?" She glared at me and everyone was silent. "Pretty good until you came home for Christmas." The boys all said "Ouch!" Simultaneously as she walked into the kitchen.
Frowning i sat down on the couch, noticing me Lily came and sat beside me. "Don't worry, she's just mad for now she'll get over it, and plus she won't admit this but i think deep, deep, deep down she likes having you around." I smiled, maybe i do have a chance. We are both mature adults now, so maybe we could put the past behind us and start fresh. Easier said then done.
I know what i said was a little harsh but it had to be done. He needs to know nothing's changed between us. When i reached the kitchen i grabbed the plates and silverware and went to set the table. Couple of seconds later Niall came into the dining room. "Need Help?" I nodded and handed him the silverware.
"If you don't mind my asking what's the deal between you and Harry? I mean did he kill your dog or something?" I chuckled. Maybe that would give me a better reason to hate Harry then the one i've been living with.
"Not exactly, we've grown up together as neighbors, and ever since Kindergarten when he put glue in my hair i've always hated him. He annoyed me every day for satisfaction. Once when we were 9 he told the whole school i had a bad case of Kitty cat pox. Which was a made-up disease where you eventually turned into a cat and anyone you touch suffers the same fate. So, yeah you could say i'm not his number one fan."
I watched as Niall choked back a laugh. "This is no laughing matter!" Grabbing a spoon i chucked it at him. He mouth formed a O shape as he gasped and pulled out his weapon of choice, which was a fork. With my cat-like reflexes i ducked and it clattered into the wall. "I'm too sly for your measly defense weapons."
Quickly i grabbed a roll from the basket on the table then continued in throwing it at Niall's face. He reached for a roll to throw back but then froze. "What do you think you 2 are doing? Wasting food and my nice silverware." My mum stood in the door way and tapped her foot. Soon everyone was watching her scold us.
I caught Harry's eyes as he looked at me and Niall. He looked angry and disappointed. Why is he feeling this way. It's not like we're dating or anything. He knows i hate his guts why does he look so hurt. After another second of silence went by Harry turned and left the house. Without thinking i followed him.
