2. Befriended

I broke down to the ground, cupping my face in my hands. My world has fallen, I thought to myself. This is all my fault… If I hadn’t been so stupid and stayed outside instead of coming in, maybe she would be all right. My precious mom, the one that has been here ALWAYS for me, gone… Who was going to huddle me at night? Who was going to say that everything was going to be all right? Who was going to make me feel safe? The pain I felt inside my chest was unbearable, I felt my heart beating faster. Why was I so stupid? Couldn’t I just be nice and pretty and normal like all the other girls? All the bad things happened to me, first Isabelle now this! I’d now be crying my eyes out. And suddenly, someone tapped on my shoulder. At first I moved away, thinking it’d be the robber wanting to kill me too, but it was just Harry. Wait, Harry?!

“What the fuck are you doing here, Styles?!” I would interrogate, while hiding my face in my shirt. I’ve always thought that crying was a weakness. People who cry are pathetic, they don’t know how to control themselves. But yet again, I always cried. 

“Well, you kind of left me waiting, love.”I looked at my watch, seeing it was seven o’ clock, we were supposed to meet at five. Shit. He smiled, but that smile quickly faded as he’d look at me and realize that I was crying. “Are you okay?” He’d ask, seeming worried. But no one cares about pathetic ol’ Paige, right? 

“I’m fine, go away!” I used my hand to try and shoo him away, but he only got closer. 

“I’m not going anywhere.” He whispered in my ear, with a protective yet seductive voice that gave me goosebumps and a chill. Seeing that I was cold, he took off his jacket, making a swift movement of it and wrapped it around me, his jacket was warm, with his smell lingering on it. I smiled as he wrapped his hand around my shoulder.

“Wanna sleep at my house tonight? Seeing that here it might be impossible for you to stay.” He said looking through the window. “Okay, but I need to call my dad.” I seemed cool but inside I was suspicious. Harry asked me to sleep at his house? Was the world coming to an end?! I was Paige fucking Summers, the girl no one likes, the forever alone that only isn’t suspended because her dad is the principal, the girl which everyone was grossed out by. No one likes Paige Summers. And Harry wasn’t an exception… was he? I don’t understand anymore. “Your dad already knows, I asked him beforehand because I knew something was wrong, otherwise you wouldn’t have been tardy for the job.” He smiled again and his dimples were showing, he had the cutest smile I had ever seen. I smiled back but my smile wasn’t half as marvelous as his and thinking of that, I stopped smiling. His phone started ringing, his ringtone was a solo from a song I didn't recognise, but the song seemed really pretty. It was at full volume, saying:

Baby you light up my world like no body else,
The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed
And when you smile at the ground it ain’t hard to tell…

But before I could hear the rest, he picked it up, muttering into the little microphone. 

“Yes, you can come. She’s right here by my side, I found her crying. Yup, her mom died. She’s fine now. Okay yeah. Bye.”

“It was my mom, she’s coming to pick us up. I think we have some extra clothes at home for you. So… do you do any sports?” He started the conversation, how sweet! Usually it was me that starts the conversation, but he was kind enough to care. “Well uhm, I really like soccer and I’m on the feminine soccer team. Swimming and football are nice too.” I said, while playing with my fingers.

"You're into soccer? No way! We should totally have a match someday!" He smiled as his eyes filled with excitement. 

"Just so you know, I'm the master at soccer, so don't expect to be winning anytime soon." I said, winking and giggling at him. 

"Oh, Is that a challenge, Miss Paige?" He said in a cute voice.

"I don't know, is it?" I responded, a bit of sarcasm in my voice.

"Well, how about you think about THIS challenge!" He said, and immediately started tickling my stomach. I giggled as he did so, not wanting this moment to ever end. He continued tickling me and I was squealing, he started laughing too. Maybe I could get used to being Harry's friend from now on.

Harry’s POV

I was sitting in my room, facing Paige whilst she sipped on hot chocolate. She was holding on to the cup with trembling fingers, indicating that she was quite nervous. 

“Would you like some marshmallows, Paige?” 

My mum would then interrogate to Paige, but Paige didn’t respond, in fact, she didn’t even turn to my mum. She just sat there, with her trembling fingers, her mind was not with us. Her mind was about a thousand light years away. I opened my mouth to speak, but Paige interrupted me.

“I’m so sorry, Harry.” Paige said, staring into her cup as if all the awnsers in the universe were to be revealed inside. What could she possibly be sorry for? I looked at her, confused.

“I’ve been so rude to you, while you have only been kind. First, I raged at you for sitting in a chair. Sure, it was my only reminder of my best friend, but that’s not your fault. Second, I ignored you during lunch while you were only trying to give me company. Third, I ran away from you when you just wanted to talk. And last, I didn’t show up for our assignment at your house. You probably hate me, I’m a terrible person and I don’t deserve to live!” 

She was sobbing into her hands. Of course, none of that last sentence was true, I thought the complete opposite of her. Paige is a wonderful person, she deserves all the good things in the world, and I wasn’t ready to admit this to her, but I like love her. I love her with all my heart, and I always will. But putting that aside, I knew she wouldn’t stop agreeing until she won, so I gave up on that topic.

“Would you like to watch a movie?” I asked, while opening my movie drawer, packed with DVDs.

She came over, and while she was picking a movie, I stared at her beautiful green/blue/grey eyes, wondering how someone could be so beautiful and so strong at the same time, and I could feel my heart beating faster just by looking at her.

“This one.” She said, while holding a DVD that was written ‘Titanic’ on the cover. 

I took the DVD from her and pressed on the power button on my television, then I pressed the eject button on the DVD player and I put in the movie. As I waited for the movie, I looked over to Paige, who was already on the couch, waiting for me. I wonder what she’s thinking about. I thought in my mind. Could she possibly be thinking about me? No, it’s unlikely. She probably has better things to do than think about stupid Harry Styles. She was biting her lip again. I felt the sudden urge to kiss her, she looked like she had soft lips… No. Stop it right now. Remember the last time you fell in love? She left you on the curb, with all the other pieces of trash she had outside. It’s not safe to fall in love again. Not yet. I turned back to the TV, the film was already on.

Paige’s POV 

The movie Titanic had always been one of my favourite movies, but my mind was wandering on and on about my mom, and how things would be with me and my dad from now on. My dad, being the principal, was a good parent, although he never had time for me because he was always at work. But would he be able to raise me alone? Would he send me to an orphanage? Would he have enough money to pay the rent alone? A tear went down my face as I thought of this, not being able to hold back. I knew my life would be harder from then on, but I hoped Harry would be able to stick by me… I looked up to the movie, the movie was already on the part where the main masculine character was holding the main feminine character at the front of the boat, one of the famous scenes of Titanic. 

I looked over to Harry in the corner of my eye and I saw him staring at me. He probably was thinking about how repulsive I am. How weak I am to his eyes, that I’m an ugly creature. It’s fine, most people already think bad things of me anyways, at least Harry didn’t say it aloud and start bullying me. He was being a good friend and I liked that about him, he always seemed to be there when I needed help… Kind of like Isabelle. Oh, how I miss Isabelle! I would do just about anything to see her right now, to catch a glimpse of her wicked smile, to see her laugh again, or to just simply speak to her. I yawned, being exhausted from my awfully long day. 

“Would you like to go to sleep, Paige? I’ve got some covers for you and my mum can lend you pyjamas.” Harry asked, he was being quite the gentleman.

“Okay, sure.” I responded, nodding my head.

Harry ran off to the corridor to get me some blankets and soon returned. He put some blankets on my bed and some on his. Giving me a blue tee and elastic white shorts (that were supposedly his mom's), he smiled. 

“And what are you going to wear to sleep?” I interrogated, while Harry’s smile just got bigger.

“Oh, I forgot to tell you, I sleep naked.”
