Chapter 3

 

I cleared my throat and the both turned to look at me. My stomach flipped when the boy turned around. Harry Styles.

I don't have anything against Harry, he seems like a nice guy. It's just that he looks a bit intimidating being famous and all. 

"How nice of you to join us Tess." Erica smiled. I looked at the clock on the wall and I was 10 minutes late.

"Sorry I had some... friends over." I said quietly.

"Take a seat." Erica said and I took a seat next to Harry sitting opposite Erica's desk.

"Now Tess, as you may know you are all over the news and papers. People love you and your medal winning at your first Olympics." Erica stated proudly, I looked at her a bit uninterested as I hate people talking about me and how well I do.

She continued, "To keep you on top you need to promote yourself. Harry's publicity manager and myself have organised for you two to be fake dating for the next yea-"

"What?!" I butted in. "Well how long has he known?" I asked pointing at Harry.

Erica didn't really have an answer because she knew I would get mad at her. Of course I was mad! Who would want to spend a year of their life 'fake dating?!'

"Uhh, a few weeks..." Harry said and I looked at Erica.

"Aaaand you decided not to tell me? Was I not 'mature' enough to know? I don't even know him and you just want me to share a bed with him?! I just don't get why he got told and I didn't. “I said still unsure of what’s going on and what I have ahead of me.

"It's ok just let me finish." Erica said looking at me. I leaned back in my chair. I felt Harry's eyes on me watching me and Erica continued talking, "This will last a year, we have scripted the break up, you will not be scripted on anything else. Now we will have to organise whose flat you will be sleeping at."

"Mine." I quickly offered. Harry coughed lightly. I looked over at him as he has been watching me most of the time I have been in this room.

"What about Harry's?" Erica said.

"Mines closer to the pool." I answered for Harry.

"That's fine." Harry said kindly.

I smiled and told Erica to continue. As she was talking a grabbed a lolly off her desk that she keeps there. She looked at me and continued.

"You will go back to Tess' tonight and then tomorrow you will be spending the day together and then go out for dinner. Get a bit of attention but don't ask for it. You are not to tell any of your friends or family. I know you guys will be fine!" Erica said enthusiastically to us.

We both sat there silently.

"You may leave now; call me if you need anything!" Erica said happily, obviously pleased with herself.

We both stood up and exited together. We walked out side by side not talking until we reached the parking lot. 

"I guess I should go back and get my stuff then." Harry said.

"Yeah, I'll give you my number." I said and we exchanged phones putting our number in each other’s phones.

"See you soon." Harry said walking off to his car.

"Oh I live 85 Victoria Street." I told him.

"Thanks." Harry smiled and gave me a wave. I walked off to my car and started driving home.

I don't know what I feel. I feel upset and angry but I haven't even given Harry a chance to meet him. I think I mostly just feel pissed. 

I pull into my flat and see my friends are still here. I smile slightly to myself. 

Shit, I can’t tell them about it. And Harry will be here soon. 

I open the door and they are all laid out on my couch watching TV with their bags next to the door.

"Hey guys." I say closing the door.

"Hey, we were just leaving." Rachael says all of their eyes still glued to my television.

"I see." I said quietly and made my way into the kitchen.

"Hey want to go somewhere tonight?" Jemma asked.

"Sorry I can’t, me and few girls from diving are going to see a movie." I lied, I can’t tell them about Harry because it would be so obvious that its set up.

"That’s fine." Jemma smiled.

5 minutes later they all got off the couch and came and hugged me goodbye and then left.

As soon as I heard the car leave I quickly ran around the house cleaning things up. 

First my bedroom, shit. I knew there was a mess in there from last night.

I quickly cleaned that up and then the bathroom and made my way around my flat.

When I finished I looked at the clock, 4 o'clock. I sat on the couch on my laptop and went on tumblr. After scrolling through I heard the front door open and then close. Harry appeared around the corner.

"You know you should really lock the door, even when you are home." Harry suggested.

"Yeah my friends just left." I said standing up and putting my laptop on the couch. 

"I like it." Harry smiled looking around my flat.

"Thanks, I'll show you my- um, the bedroom." I said walking down the hall to my room.

He followed and placed his bag down at the end of my bed. 

"I suppose this will be our room for a while then…" I said looking around.

"Yeah, what do you do?" Harry asked.

I looked at him confused, "What do you mean, what do I do? I dive." I asked.

"No what would you be doing right now if I wasn’t here?" He asked watching my face.

"I um, would probably be watching a few episode of Pretty Little Liars or Gossip Girl or something like that, haha but you probably don't want to do that." I said shyly.

"Oh um, haha I don’t think I would..." Harry chuckled. Oh my god he is so cute, wait no he isn't. Don't think that. 

"Uh, do you want to watch a movie or a TV series?" I asked him.

"Sure." He smiled and we walked down to the lounge room. 

I sat down on the floor in front of the cabinet while Harry made himself comfortable on the couch.

"Um do you want to watch Summer Heights High?" I ask turning around to look at him. He was sitting on the couch with Max my cat on his lap purring, I smiled. 

He looked at me smiling, "Sorry what?" Harry asked.

"Oh um sorry did you want to watch this?" I ask holding up the TV series DVD.

"Yeah ok." Harry said.

I put it in and went to get us both a drink. I came back and gave him to and sat down next to him back not too close, that would be too awkward. Things are already awkward as it is...

They first episode started to play. "Have you seen this?" I asked Harry turning my head to look at him.

"No." Harry whispered studying my face again. Do I have something on my face? 

"It’s good, it's Australian." I said attempting to make conversation.

"Is this what you do all the time?" Harry asked.

"What? Sit here and watch TV. Haha no. When I'm not at the pool, or the gym, or the physio, or anywhere like that, I yes sometimes sit here and watch shows..." I said slightly embarrassed.

"It’s cute." Harry said smiling at me. I look at him confused. He quickly tried to cover it up by making conversation again, "Do you get lonely, living here by yourself?" He asked.

"Sometimes but I have my friends over a lot." I smiled weakly.

We watched a few episodes and talked a little, getting to know each other. He's a really nice and funny guy.

"Are you hungry? I'm starving." I said getting off the couch.

"Did you want me to help you cook anything?" Harry asked following me into the kitchen.

"Uh, I wasn't really expecting company tonight. Sorry I should have gone food shopping I don't have much." I said slightly laughing, "I'll order some Chinese."

I ordered some Chinese from the take out just down the road. 

"Did you want to walk in together and get it or do you want me to drive in?" I asked him.

"We can walk." Harry smiled at me.

It’s about a 10 minute walk so I got my phone, purse and shoes and we started walking. 

It was silent at first but not too awkward. But the conversation started and we talked for a little bit. Harry adding a few sneaky comments in here and there.

We turned the corner to the main road and we could see the lights of the upcoming shops. Harrys hand lightly brushed against mine. I looked at Harry and he smirked at me. He lightly gripped on to my pinkie finger and started playing with it. I started to feel slightly uncomfortable.

"Um, Harry what are you doing?" I asked looking up at him.

"It's ok, there are people up here." He leant down and whispered in my ear. He took my little hand in his big hand, they moulded together and it just felt... right? I don’t know but I think I like it.
