10. Harry's new best friend.

Clare's POV
I can't believe that I just told Harry my biggest fear and secret. I felt so vulnerable. I feel like I could tell him anything and he'll just sit and listen to me. We sat there in silence with his arm wrapped around me. I felt comfortable. I snuggled my head into his shoulder and closed my eyes. I don't know how long I've been talking to him, but I could tell it was getting late. I opened my eyes and looked at the sky.
"What do you mean about the picture?" I asked Harry.
"What do you mean?"
"When you came over here, you thought I was upset about this one picture." I clarified.
"Oh, that..." He mumbled.
"What is it?" I took my head off his shoulder and turned to face him.
"Well someone took a picture of us at the mall. When we were sitting on the bench."
"And what's bad about that?" I asked.
"Um, it's on twitter..."
"What?" I could feel my mouth gape open. "Are you kidding me?"
Harry took his phone out of his pocket. He unlocked it and went on twitter. He scrolled down his page until he came upon the picture. He showed me his phone and there was a picture of us sitting on the bench in the mall. You can obviously tell that is was me. I've gotta admit, it was kinda cute. We were both laughing and looking at each other. He's kinda cute. Oh my god. Did i just think that? I looked up at Harry. He was looking at me, anxiously waiting for me to say something.
"Well, um, it's cute." I blurted. My face immediately turned red and I looked down. "What I meant to say is does anyone know that it's me?"
I saw him scroll through the comments. He laughed at my awkwardness. "No, doesn't look like it," he started, "just comments asking if we're together and trends that say #harryandmysterygirl."
I laughed. "Good, I don't want to be creeped on."
"It is a cute picture though." He confessed. "So you feeling better now?"
"Yeah, I am. Thanks." I smiled.
His phone beeped. He answered it and started smiling. "Look what Zayn sent me." He handed me his phone. There was a picture of us from a little bit ago. We were sitting on the beach looking at the stars. Cute. Gosh Clare, you've gotta stop using that word.
"He asked if he can post it." Harry chuckled nervously.
"I don't care.. It's not like they know who I am." I responded.
"Are you sure?" Harry asked me.
I shrugged my shoulders. "Up to you." He nodded and replied something to Zayn. A moment later his phone went off again but with a different tone. He smirked.
"What?" I asked.
"Look." He once again handed me his phone. That same picture was there but this time, it was on twitter. It read '@zaynmalik1D awww @Harry_Styles made a new friend' then the picture was underneath.
I heard a girls scream coming from my house. "I think Sarah saw the picture.." Harry started laughing.
"Do you have a twitter?" Harry asked.
"Yeah. It's @Clare_Sampson70"
"Okay, I'll follow you."
"Do you know what time it is?" I asked him.
"Yeah it's almost 11." He said while looking at his phone.
"Oh, it's getting late. I should get going." I said and started to get up off the sand.
"Wait, uh, you want to do something sometime?" He asked for the second time that day.
"Let's just take it slow Harry."

Harry's POV
She was about to walk away. "Wait, uh, you maybe want to do something sometime?" I asked her hoping for a different answer than the first time I asked.
"Let's just take it slow Harry." She smiled and walked away. Well it wasn't a no! I returned her smile and watched her walk into her house.
I stood up and started to walk back to the boys.
"Wow you were there for a while." Niall winked. I blushed a bit.
"What you guys talk about?" Zayn asked.
"Oh nothing." I said and tried to change the subject. "So are they still surfing?"
"Yeah, you wanna go inside or something?" Zayn looked at the boys and then at the house.
"Sure, whatever works."
We all walked inside and I plopped on the couch. Before I knew it, light was seeping through the window. I was sprawled out on one of the couches and Niall was sleeping on a chair. I think Zayn might've gonna upstairs last night apparently. I sat up and searched for my phone. I found that I was sitting on it. Great 9% battery and it was a bit past 8 in the morning. I slumped upstairs and jumped down on my bed. I put my phone in the charger and grabbed the remote to my tv. I turned it on and watched the first show that popped up. Apparently, its a gossip news show. I was about to change the channel when I heard my name. A girl in her mid 20's was talking on the screen, she was wearing way too much makeup.
"Harry Styles has been spotted hanging around a new girl lately. Photos of them hanging out at the local mall in Beverly Hills has been unveiled." The photo of us sitting on the bench was shown on the screen. "Then last night, Harry's band mate Zayn Malik tweeted a photo of them sitting on the beach while gazing at the stars. Zayn posted that they were just friends, but that picture says differently." Now the picture of us on the beach appeared on the screen. "Harry, who is this girl? And are you still single?" She winked and smiled then the program went to commercial.
You've got to be kidding me. Can't I have at least some privacy on this vacation and be friends with someone without them automatically assuming that I have a new girlfriend? Sometimes I'm just tired of my fame, I just miss being normal. I turned my tv off and opened up my laptop. I logged onto my twitter. I looked at the most recent tweets of the day, followed a few people, and posted a good morning. I automatically got tons of comments, most were saying hi but the other majority was asking who the girl was. I commented back to them saying "Sorry guys, but I'm not giving out the name of my FRIEND. (; xx" there. That should clarify some stuff. After a couple minutes I saw a lot of comments with Clare's name. Like "@Harry_Styles you and Clare would be a cute couple!<3" and "@Harry_Styles and Clare = Hlare or Clarry. Which one do you prefer?"
My heart started to skip beats as I scrolled through my comments looking for the one who exposed Clare. Then I saw it. "The mystery girl is my sister, Clare. And Harry, you guys would be so cute! Tell the guys I say hi!(; xx" the tweet was from @sarahsampson. Clare's sister. I got pissed off. How can her own sister expose Clare to the world of assumptions and hate? I couldn't believe it. I heard our doorbell ring as I hurried downstairs. Who would be here at almost 9 in the morning? I reached the grand staircase and jogged down the stairs to the door. I opened it and was surprised to see Clare. She was dressed in purple flannel pajama pants, a tee shirt, and tan ugg boots. Her hair was in a messy braid. I kinda like the lazy look on her. "Clare, what are you doing here?" I asked.
"Did you see twitter?" She asked frantically.
"Yeah, I just did." I admitted, "here, come inside." I led her past the first living room to where Niall was snoring and into the one next to it. We sat on the couch.
"Everyone knows who I am now, and even worse, they've made assumptions about you!" She said.
"Clare, it's okay. I'm used to it. I'm just worried about you."
"I'm used to it to. I grew up with a famous dad. He would be all over everywhere. Newspapers, magazines, the news. And some stories were about us, his family, too. Like one time a story about him cheating on my mom with a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader. But, that was just a lie, that slut just told the press that in order to get money." She shrugged her shoulders. "It really affected my mom because she didn't know what to believe. I didn't either. Then he promised us it was all a lie and that was that."
"Oh, I'm sorry." I said.
"Don't be."
"Oh okay. So what are we going to do about all of this?" I asked.
"Does it really matter? It's not like we're dating or anything. We're just friends, right?" She added.
"Yeah, right.." I trailed off. But she seemed to ignore my tone.
"So it would be okay to introduce you to everyone as my new best friend?" I smirked and started to chuckle.
"Only if you tell everyone that I'm your bestest friend in the entire world!!" She joked along with me.
We started laughing together. "I'll be right back!" I exclaimed, "Dont move!" I ran upstairs and grabbed my phone. It was already charged so I unplugged it and opened twitter. I started to write a new post and quickly hit ok as it uploaded.
I ran back down stairs with my phone in my hand a jumped back on the couch next to Clare.
"What did you do?" She asked.
"Nothing..." I smirked.
Just then her phone beeped saying that she had a notification. "Really Harry? You tagged me in a tweet?" She started giggling. I unlocked my phone and read it over again. It said 'Just so everyone is aware, my new bestest friend in the entire is @Clare_Sampson70!!'
I laughed as I noticed I got tons of retweets and favorites. There seemed to be millions of comments.
"I can't believe this..." She stared at her phone.
"Huh?" I looked at her strangely hoping she wasn't mad at me.
"I gained hundreds of followers in the past couple minutes," She looked astonished.
"Yes, that tends to happen when The Harry Styles tells everyone your his best friend." He said sarcastically. She looked at me in annoyance as I smirked at her. She cracked a smile and burst out laughing.
"So what are we doing today?" She asked.
"We?" I looked at her.
"Well I don't really wanna go home, you know face my sister and my mom. It seems like the only one who doesn't annoy me these days is my brother Luke."
"Oh, is everything ok?"
"Yeah, it should be fine."
"So," I added, "How about staying in and watching movies all day?"
"That's a great plan! I hope you don't mind, but I'm staying in my pajamas." She stated.
I laughed and then my phone buzzed telling me I was tagged in a tweet. It was from Louis. I unlocked my phone and smiled as I read the tweet. '@Harry_Styles so does this mean I'm replaced?! :0'
Before I got the chance to reply, another tweet popped up. This time from Clare. I glanced up from her before I read it. 'Yes, I'm very sorry @Louis_Tomlinson but @Harry_Styles likes me better.(:'
"I can't believe you played along." I told her.
"What?" She said sarcastically, "you don't think I can joke around?"
My phone buzzed again before I could reply to her. It was a tweet from Louis.
'@Harry_Styles you know I'm crying right now? Are you happy with yourself? But whatever happens, I still love you<3'
I didn't respond to this but I laughed silently to myself. I opened my messages and texted Louis to come downstairs to hang out with us.
All of a sudden we heard loud footsteps running down the stairs.
"Harry! How could you!" Louis such screeched.
"No Louis, Harry's my best friend, not yours!" Clare scooter closer to me and leaned against me with a huge smirk on her face. Louis looked appalled but couldn't hold his straight face for much longer when we all burst out in laughter.
"So, Clare. I dont believe we've officially met." Louis reached out his hand formally, "I am Tomlinson, Louis Tomlinson." He smirked, "also know as Harry's ex best friend."
Clare chuckled when she got off the couch and walked up to Louis. She took his hand and shook it as she said, "and I'm Sampson, Clare Sampson. Also knows as Harry's current best friend."
I laughed at the way she said this.
Her and Louis plopped down on the couch. "So what we doing today?" Louis asked.
"Movies and staying in," Harry responded.
"Sounds like a great plan!" Louis exclaimed.
