The Mistake I Made

Hi my names Julie. I am only 17 years old and work at Holmes Chapel bakery, yes the one that the one and only Harry Styles used to work at, emphasis on the “used to”. I am a huge One Direction fan and so is my best friend Mina which makes us even closer. We always hope that maybe one day he might walk in to check in to see the shop, but that hasn’t happened for the past year.

19. Why Zayn


It was Saturday night and I sat at home watching TV all alone eating take in Chinese food from the place Julie ordered. I think I ordered it around 3 times this week. It was so good. I sat there eating chow mein and lemon chicken for a good 20 minutes until I heard a knock on the door. “Ugh” I groaned since I was so comfortable. As I walked towards my door I could see a few flashes that looked like it came from a camera. What the hell? I looked out the window to see more flashes and someone covering their face. I felt bad for whoever was at my door and walked over and grabbed the doorknob. I could hear her sniffling with her head down, it was Julie. I walked outside and put my arm around her and brought her inside and shut the door. “Julie?” and she looked up at me with sad eyes that broke my heart. I instantaneously took her into my arms and gave her the biggest hug I possibly could have. And when her head hit my shoulder I could tell she just let all her tears out and began to sob. I walked her over to my living room so we could get further away from the door and hugged her again and rubbed her back in attempt to calm her down. I wonder why she came to me rather than Mina, or her parents I couldn’t help but think why me.

I didn’t want to ask her what was wrong right away because I thought it would be kind of rude, so we just sat in my living and watched TV as she munched on some of the Chinese food that was left in an awkward silence. “So…what exactly happened?” I couldn’t help but ask and she turned and looked at me with sad eyes. Maybe I shouldn’t have asked her.

“Well,” she began “I was over at Harry’s and he- he uh” she looked down.

“It’s ok you don’t have to tell me” I told her but she shook her head signaling she was going to tell me.

“He pinned against a wall and basically was trying to pressure me, it was like he didn’t respect who I was or that I had feelings about what he was doing.” She lifted her head up and her eyes became more watery and I walked towards and pulled her into another tight embrace. Something about it just felt right, to me at least.


I don’t know why but the first place I thought of going to was Zayns. The paparazzi followed me to his house and to his doorstep so I kept my head down. I didn’t want them here or to see me but I couldn’t do anything about it. Once he opened the door he pulled me inside and hugged me; his hugs were very comforting. After I had been at his house for a while longer he spoke up and asked what had happened. So I told him with my eyes watering I could feel the tears coming and he wrapped his strong arms around me again.
