Forever & Always

Copyright © *One Direction One Shot Competition*
Getting your heart stomped on right before Valentines Day isn't really on the top of anyone's list. But, maybe it's for the best when you find true love that's been right in front of you since the beginning...


1. Forever & Always

"Chuck, please just leave me alone." I said as I walked up the steps to my house.

"Will you stop acting like this?! All I want to do is talk about this like civilized people!"

"Says the guy who broke up with me through via text message." I sarcastically laughed.

"Carly, just-"

"I think you've said enough." I spoke, trying not to choke on my words.

Entering the house, I slid down the door and brought my knees to my chest. One second he loves me, the next I'm opening my phone to a breakup the day before Valentines Day. Feeling the tears roll down my cheeks I made my way up to my bed room, blindly tossing my school bag somewhere in the closet. I walked over to my IPod dock and blasted my music through the speakers, letting my emotions out with the lyrics. I then began ripping down all the pictures, all the memories.

"I thought you loved me." I whispered as I stared at my favorite picture of 'us'. "But you played me, just like the rest." With that I ripped the photo in half, tossing it in the trash bin. After throwing out everything, I crawled up into my bed, holding the softest pillow around close to me. My attempt to calm down was ruined because Chuck decided he wasn't finished talking. 

It was a sleepless night with constant arguing over the phone and hurtful text messages. I had never seen this side of him, which made me wonder why I fell for him in the first place. People don't do this to each other if they're in love...

My phone went off again and I nearly screamed. Violently grabbing it off the night stand I answered.

"Leave me alone, Chuck! Just stop!" Then slammed it back down. Ten minutes later I was scared half to death when someone ripped the blankets off of me. "Hey!" I yelled sitting up, only to see my best friend with a concerned look on his face. "Oh, sorry Harry. I didn't know it was you." I said, rubbing my tired eyes.

"I think I got that after you answered the phone." He said.

"What?!" I grabbed my phone and sure enough, Harry had been the last person to call, not Chuck. "I'm so sorry Harry! I was just mad at Chuck! He was calling all night, and I thought it was him again."

"What exactly is going on between you two?" He asked, taking a seat next to me.

"Well, long story short, he dumped me." I said, feeling tears I didn't know I had left start to make their way to my eyes.

"What?! Why?!" He asked, his voice growing a bit louder.

"He found someone else, someone better than me." I said.

"No, he didn't. You were the best he had, and no one can replace you."

"Apparently someone has." I said, wiping away some of the tears.

"No. He wasn't good enough for you. He didn't deserve you."

"No Harry. I-"

"No! I don't want to hear it. I'm right, and that's why you're gonna hang out with me and lads today!" He exclaimed, jumping up and pulling me with him. I then retrieved my blankets and crawled back into bed, hiding under them.

"No Harry. I just want to stay here today."

"You lazy bum! It's Valentines Day! You can't just stay in here all day."

"Watch me." I said, covering my head.

"Okay, I guess you give me no choice." Knowing how Harry was when he didn't get his way, I uncovered my head.

"What are you gonna-" Before I could finish my sentence, Harry picked me up and locked me in my closet. "Harry! Open the door now!"

"I'll open it, once you put some real clothes on and agree to hang out today." He yelled back, followed by a laugh.

"But Harry, you know I'm claustrophobic!" 

"Then I suggest you talk less and change faster!" I gave up and got dressed.

"Done." I sighed. Once out, I punched him in the arm.

"Ouch! What was that for?"

"Don't lock me in a small space ever again, or else!" I yelled.

"Oooh so scared. Can we go now? The guys are waiting at the carnival."

"Fine." I said, feeling the least bit threatening.

As we walked down to the carnival I wanted to just turn back around. There were heart shaped balloons, heart shaped cotton candy, basically heart shaped everything! Plus the place was crawling with couples.

"Why did you bring me here." I groaned.

"Because you need to lighten up." He said, dragging me through the crowd.

"Look who finally decided to show up!" Louis exclaimed when we finally found the others.

"Sorry, someone was a bit slow this morning." He said, glancing at me.

"Sorry guys, I was locked in a closet this morning." I replied, glaring at Harry.

"Excuses excuses! Can we just go on some rides now?" Louis whined. 

"Fine. Where to first?" I asked.

"Roller coasters!" He screamed.

"Um..." I started.

"You guys go ahead. We'll catch back up later, ok?" Harry said.

"Alright, suite yourself." And with that, they were off.

"Thanks Harry."

"No problem. I know how you are with roller coasters." He grinned.

We then walked through the park and attempted a few games. Harry even won me a cute stuffed bear. By the end of the day, Chuck was basically erased from my memory."Hey, wanna go on the Ferris wheel? I heard it's cooler at night with all the lights lit up on it." Harry asked, already getting in line.


"Oh come on, Carly! It's fun!"

"But I'm.." My voice trailed off.

"What?" He asked.

"I'm afraid of heights." I sighed. "That's why I don't like roller coasters."

"Do you trust me?" He asked.

Thinking for a second I replied, "Yes." He then took my hand as we got on the Ferris wheel. "What if we get stuck at the top?!" I asked as the ride began to move.

"Then we sit up there and admire the view together." He said, scooting closer to me. As we kept getting higher, I got more uneasy.

"Harry, I don't think I can do this!" I said as the ride predictably stopped at the very top.

"Yes you can, Carly. I love you."

"What?" I asked, looking at him.

"I said I love you. I always have. The only thing that kept me from telling you is our friendship and Chuck. But I don't care anymore. I love you, and I need you to know."

"I love you too. I always have, but I thought you just wanted to be friends, and then Chuck came along  and-" I stopped, getting lost in his eyes. He leaned over and gently kissed me. As we pulled apart we watched as they shot up heart shaped fireworks into the clear night sky. I giggled softly as the fireworks I had just felt resembled them. "I don't mind being up here now. Thanks, Harry." I said as he wrapped his arm around me while we slowly made our way back down.

"It was my pleasure." He smiled. "I love you, Carly. Forever and always."
