Our Complicated Harmony

Makenzie is dragged to a party in England by her rich best friend, Hailey. While she's there, she meets a certain British popstar of whom seems pretty interested in her. A few shots and an overnight stay later, and they wake up half nude in the same bed. Though they can't remember much of anything, he is convinced that they slept together. So what now? (Things may become graphic at certain points in the story.)


10. A Call


We took a helicopter into San Francisco early that evening, and I found the old place where Makenzie had once lived. I hadn't been there since I was 10, because after that she would always rather be at my place.

I knocked on the door, the boys standing behind me, and an old guy with gray facial hair and gray hair with a bald patch opened it. "Whaddoya want?" he sneered in his raspy voice.

"Oh, well... is Makenzie here?" I asked. The man paused for a moment

"I don't know a Makenzie. Go away," and he slammed the door in my face with a lot of force.

"Sir! Please!" I said banging on the door. I stopped and heard the door lock. I sighed and turned around to the boys with tears in my eyes. I shook my head. They all gathered me in a group hug, and reassured me until I had calmed down.

"Where now?" I asked. The boys all looked at each other.

"I think we should be done for the day," Niall said, taking my hand. I huffed.

"But Ni, we've only looked in one place! Please just one more?" I pled. he came closer to me.

"Tomorrow," he said, putting his hand on the side of my face and kissing me.

"Oh fine," I said. "Please don't make a habit of using that against me though," he just laughed and kissed me again, making me smile into his lips.


Later that night we had eaten and everyone decided that getting a hotel in San Francisco would be easier than going back to LA. I was sitting in my room, waiting for Niall to return with movies and making coffee when I heard a knock at the door. "It's open!" I shouted. I had my back turned and was facing the dresser. I heared the door open and then click closed. The person came from behind and put his arms around my waist. "Hi Niall," I said. I turned around and was shocked to see Harry standing there.

"Hi Hailey. It's not Niall." I gasped and scrambled from his arms. "Listen," he said. "I just wanted to thank you for helping me find Makenzie. Without you... this would be nothing."

"Yeah. No problem..." I said nervously. He sat on my bed . "Is that all then?" I asked. He shook his head. I sighed.

"I just. I see you and Niall and you guys have an amazing relationship... I'm jealous. I wish Kenzie and I had a chance to have that. I really appreciate you for doing this Hailey," he said, standing.

"Oh. No problem Harry..." I said

"You know Hailey, You really understand me well. I don't think many people do," he said standing. "I feel like we could be really..." he closed the space between us and backed me against the wall. "Close," He crashed his lips into mine and I gasped, trying to back out, but he was still coming strong. He had me trapped.

"Harry no!" Slipped past my lips as he ravaged them with his own. Just then Niall walked in.

"Okay Hailey, I got the new Spiderman and-" He looked up. "Styles? The fuck?" Harry backed up and I slapped him hard on the cheek. He fell back a few steps and pressed his hand to his face.

"Shit," He said, and then Niall got to him and punched him square in the nose, sending him barreling to the floor.

"Leave her alone." Niall warned, crossing immediately to me and holding my shoulders, inspecting me. "Are you alright?" he asked. I nodded, then heard a sob from the floor where Harry was laying, His nose bleeding onto the carpet.

"I really didn't mean it Hailey. I'm so sorry s-sorry. I just want what you guys have so badly." He sobbed some more. I walked over to him and offered him my hand to help him up, and he took it. His eyes were glazed over with tears. He stood up and I hugged him for several moments. Despite the 4 inch height difference, I whispered in his ear.

"Harry, its okay. We will find her. You will get her back. In the mean time, try not to fuck it up." while I said this he continually cried. I looked at him at arms distance, with his bloody nose and puffy eyes. I took everything in and then hugged him one last time. I offered to walk him back to his room but he declined. He said goodbye and walked out of the room.

I sighed and looked at Niall, who was staring at me with intense amounts of affection. "Hailey," He said to me, and than stood up to come and kiss my lips. He broke the kiss and placed his forehead on mine. "This is why I'm with you. You're so amazing. The way you comforted Harry... he really needed it."

"I know he did. Try not to be to angry about his kissing me. He's confused Niall. He just needs to get himself back on track," I said he sighed.

"I know. No harm done. I have a feeling he won't try it again, so its fine." I laughed and he kissed me again, getting deeper into the kiss every second and then I broke it.

"Can we cuddle and watch movies now?" I asked. He smirked and kissed me one last quick time before going to grab the movies he had dropped in front of the door.

We got into bed together and watched the movies snuggled in to one another. I fell asleep half way through the first movie though, and held me through the night while I slept and eventually when he slept too.


I woke up the next morning intertwined with Niall. When I woke up though , he was already awake and watching me.

"Good mornin' beautiful," he whispered. I giggled and he kissed the tip of my nose.

"How long have you been awake?" I asked.

"Almost an hour. I didn't have the heart to wake you up. You're just so beautiful and peaceful when you sleep." I blushed. I never really noticed what an affect Niall had on me. He made it very easy to love him. I reluctantly untangled myself from him and got up.

"I need to take a shower." I said. I took 2 towels from the shelf in the bathroom and hung them from the rack. "Care to join me?" I asked peeking my head around the corner.

Niall looked as though he was really considering it, but then said, "As tempting as that is, I really need to talk to the guys." He shrugged and I sighed, so he came over to me and gave me a hug and a kiss. "I love you more than you could ever know," he said

"I love you too," I said, "More than you could ever know." he beamed and then turned around and headed through the door to go talk to the boys.


After my shower, while I was putting on makeup, the phone rang. I picked it up, and clicked answer, putting it between my shoulder and ear. "Hello?" I asked while applying mascara.

"Hey Hailey. I miss you so much." Makenzie said on the other line.

"Makenzie," I said and almost started to cry.

"Hi," she said. A tear rolled down my cheek.

"I want to know where you are," I whispered, afraid my voice would crack or Niall would walk in.

"I can't tell you Hailey... you know that. You'll tell... them," she said.

"Makenzie, we're all so worried about you! Just tell me where you are!" I hissed

"I can't Hailey. I can't do that to you guys. Harry deserves so much better than me. You all do. Just leave well enough alone please?" I sighed.

"Harry misses you so much. He just wants you back. He just wants to be with you. He wants to be able to touch you and kiss you. He wants to be able to fall in love with you without so many complications. He needs you Makenzie. Only you," I said. Makenzie had begun to cry.

"I-I know Hailey," she whispered between sobs."B-but I'll hurt him."

I sighed. "At least talk on the phone with him Makenzie. Say goodbye at least. Just call my phone on restricted and talk to him. Please Makenzie? Please do this. I'm begging you," I said.

Makenzie let out a gasp. "I don't think that's a good idea H-hailey." she said.

"Please?" I begged, "Please, please, pretty please Makenzie? He needs your voice. He needs to hear you talk. He misses you so much."

"Okay," she whispered and hung up.


I was laying in my bed, numb and tired. I was focused only on my thoughts, and Hailey walked in.

"Harry! She called!" she said. She held out her phone to me and I was confused. I looked at the ID. RESTRICTED' it shouted. Then it hit me.

"Makenzie?" I whispered not trusting my voice. the person on the other end gasped.

"Harry," she said. Tears streamed down my face.

"Oh my God." I said "I can't believe its you. I've missed you so much love. Where are you? Are you alright? Why did you leave me?" By this time Hailey had gone from the room to give me some privacy.

"I've missed y-you too," she sobbed, and then tried to contain her crying while she explained things. "I'm living with my sister, and I'm fine. I couldn't stay Harry. I couldn't mess with your life like that. You deserve so much more than me..." she said. Her voice broke on the last statement. "I would hurt you. I already have."

I sighed. "Makenzie, I love you. More than you could ever even understand. I need you in my life. I need you Makenzie. I couldn't ask for anyone better. You're beautiful and funny and smart. I love you so much. I just want you back."

"Harry, I can't do that to you. I'd ruin everything. I'm jealous and selfish and impatient. I could never be good for you. I love you Harry. I can't do that to you," She said.

"I'm willing to work past the flaws in our relationship Makenzie. I just want you to come back love. I want to hold you and kiss you. I would do anything for you. I need you. I would give up everything for you. The fame, the money, all of it. I need you Makenzie. I miss you so much and I just want you back. I said.

"I know Harry," she said. "I'm so sorry." The line went dead and I threw the phone across the room. I gathered myself in a ball and laid in the middle of my bed.

I wanted to die.


When I got back to Harry's room he was laying in bed and my phone was across the room. I grabbed my phone which, luckily, had no real damage inflicted on it, and walked over to Harry.

"You need to get dressed. We and the boys are going out for lunch. After the that were gonna keep looking," I said. I walked to the door. "I think I may have found a lead on her Harry. We need to keep trying. We can't give up so soon. We need to find her." At this statement Harry sat up.

"I'll get dressed." he said, void of any emotion.

I nodded and walked out the door to find Niall waiting for me. "Anything?" he asked.

"He's getting dressed," I said. "He's torn up Niall. I feel so bad for him."

"I know babe. I know. We'll find her though, and when we do, he'll be back to normal." He said, and kissed me. "Let's go wait with the others." He took my hand and led the way to the room where the other three boys were.


We went to a diner and once everyone got their food I spoke. "Okay guys. I've found a lead on Makenzie. His name is James Meredith and he is Makenzie's uncle. I found him on her Facebook page. She  used to talk to him a lot by the looks of it. He's agreed to have Harry, Niall, and I over to discuss. The rest of you need reassure the fans that you're only here to promote your band. Try to see of you can get booked on a local radio station or something, to make it seem authentic." Everyone nodded, chewing their food. "We will find her you guys. It's just a matter of time."


We all finished eating and we went to our tasks. Niall, Harry, and I got a cab to the place in west San Francisco where Makenzie's uncle lived. We got to the door, and Niall knocked. A big man answers the door. He had his head shaved but had some gray facial hair. He was covered from head to toe in slightly faded tattoos.

"You're Hailey right?" he asked. I nodded. "Come inside then," he said. He sat us down on a leather couch and sat in the recliner that faced it. "So, why?"

"Why what Mr.Meredith?" I asked shakily. He chucked.

"C'mon, loosen up Hailey. I'm not going to hurt you or your little boy-band friends. By the way, call me James. Mr.Meredith was my father. Why did she leave? Wait, scratch that. I want the whole story," James said.

"Well, I don't really-" I began.

"I can tell you." Harry interrupted.

So we sat in the living room and Harry told the entire story from beginning to end, not leaving one single detail out.

At the end, James pat Harry on the back. "She really loves you kid," he said. Harry looked at the floor and nodded, his expression melancholy. "You'll get her back. She can't really go without you. That phone call today showed her weakness. She wants you back, she just doesn't think she deserves your love."

"So any idea where she may be?" I asked James. He sighed and was thoughtful for o moment.

"Did she say who she was with son?" he asked Harry.

"She said she was living with her sister." Harry said.

"Well, I would guess New York then." He said. "That's where her sister lived last I knew. She's an interior designer. Her name is Iris Anderson. Does that help you at all?"

"Yes! It does! It really does! But why isn't she with her parents?" I asked.

"Sweetheart," he said, "Her parents have been gone since she was eleven..."
