Everything Has Changed

It's funny how love can change someone. There's no warning. No hints, no heads-up. Deny it if you choose, but it's a fact. No matter who you are, what your age, or where you're from, love will change you whether it's for better or for worse. How do I know? I've seen it happen. To others, to me, and believe it or not, it will happen to you.

5. Excuses, Excuses.

 

Chapter 5

I woke up in a cold sweat. I glanced at my phone, it was 4am. I tossed my phone aside, groaned, and shoved my face back into my pillows. Suddenly, my phone vibrated and I snapped my head up, my breath hitched in my throat as I grabbed my phone once again. I paused before unlocking it.

1 New Text From: 402-919-2314

“Holy shit.” I said breathlessly.

My fingers hovered hesitantly over the screen. I squeezed my eyes shut and pressed Open. I prayed to myself that it was Harry. I opened my eyes.

“Hey, Gavin! Where you at, man????”

I clapped my hand against my forehead, pushing my bangs back and let out a heavy sigh. I hit Reply and quickly typed “Wrong number. Sorry.” I tossed my phone across my bed and rolled over and fell back asleep.

School that day was awful. I kept dozing off in all my classes and I kept thinking about my dream. My friends kept asking me what had kept me up all night, but I didn’t tell them.. I couldn’t. I didn’t want anyone to find out about this crush, er.. whatever this was.. I had on Harry.

I saw Harry on my way to 3rd period, just like every other day. I blushed at the sight of his curly head making its way down the hall. As he passed me he smiled hugely, exposing his perfect teeth and his dimples creating craters in his cheeks. He waved enthusiastically at me, and in a way.. he kind of looked like a little kid. It was adorable. I couldn’t stop thinking about that smile all day, wondering when Harry would come over again.

After school, I rushed home and flopped down on my bed. I wanted to get my homework done so I could get to sleep early but I couldn’t stop wondering about Harry. I missed seeing him walk through the door, covered in mud and sweat, smiling that smile. I missed hearing him shouting with Ryan just as they were about to fail their missions on their video game. Finally, I couldn’t take it anymore. I shut my math text book and marched out of my room.

I walked down the hall to Ryan’s room and walked right in the door without even knocking.

“Hey! Ever heard’a knocking?” Ryan asked.

“Oh.. sorry.” I said quietly.

“It’s alright,” Ryan laughed, “What’s up, sis?”

“When’s Harry coming over again?” I spat out.

“Well that was forward.” Ryan said sarcastically. “Miss him or somethin’?”

“What? No! I was just.. just wondering because…… because Marissa and I were gonna have a sleepover soon and I didn’t want our plans to collide or anything.”

Ryan raised an eyebrow at me.

“Well, I’ve got work on Friday..”

“Tomorrow,” I cut in.

“Yeah.” Ryan continued, “I’ve got work TOMORROW, but he’s coming over after soccer and he’s just gonna wait for me to get off at 10. Think you can handle him for 5 hours?”

I had to fight the smile that was waiting to explode across my face.

“Yeah, I think I’ll be fine. I’ll probably be studying anyway.” I replied.

“K, cool.” Ryan said.

“Okay..” I said. I turned on my heels and walked out of the room. I walked back into my room and closed the door. I spun on my toes and sashayed to my bed. I laid down and returned to my homework, grinning from ear to ear. Then, out of nowhere, my friend Karlee texted me.

“Haven! What are you doing tomorrow night?? GNO?”

I clapped my hand on my forehead once again. Are you kidding me?? I thought. I quickly thought up an excuse before responding.

“I can’t ): I promised my mom I’d babysit for one of her co-workers. Maybe Saturday??”

A few moments later my phone buzzed.

“That’s okay! Alright, on Saturday, YOU’RE MINE! ;) Let’s get our nails done<3”

“Can’t wait!<3”

I headed out of my bedroom, down the hall, and downstairs for supper.

After supper, I went upstairs and laid down. I started thinking about the next day. I was finally going to get some time with Harry.. I couldn’t tell if I was excited or absolutely terrified.
