Chapter 5

I stretched my arms out in and air and plunked them down beside me. I hit something hard next to me and jumped up scared. Until I realised it was only Harry.

"Ouch." Harry said joking half asleep.

"Sorry about that." I said walking across the room and opening the blinds.

"Why are you up so early?" Harry asked hiding from the light under the blanket.

"I have school. I'll go have a shower" I said walking into the bathroom remembering to lock the door behind me.

I had a quick shower then got out and dried myself. Shit. I forgot to bring in my clothes. How did I forget that? I look around trying to find some. Nothing, great. I wrapped the towel around me and stood behind the door.

"Harry." I whined.

"Mmm?" Harry said his voiced muffled as he was still under the blanket.

"I um forgot my clothes." I heard him chuckle. "Don't look." I warned him. At least I had a towel on and it was covering everything.

I quickly walked across the room trying not to slip over. I grabbed my clothes and then made my way back to the bathroom. I made it to the door when I heard Harry say, "Why don't you just wear that to school?" I turned to look at him; he was sitting up on the bed head looking me up and down. The blanket was sitting at his thighs so you could see his perfect chest. 

I sent him a death glare and closed the door of the bathroom behind me, locking it again. 

I put on some blue skinny jeans and a loose black half top that only covered half my tummy. I put on some make up and did my hair.

I walked out of the bathroom and Harry was sitting in the same position but on his phone. He looked up at me and smiled. I walked out of the room and went and got some breakfast. I had some toast and a healthy energy milkshake. 

Harry made his way down to the kitchen dressed this time and sat on a stool on the counter. I walked over to the fridge and grabbed my spare house key that was on top of the fridge. 

"This is for you." I said giving it to Harry.

"Thanks." He said still tired. "Did you want me to take you to school?"

"If you want, you really don’t have to." I said finishing off my food.

"I want to." Harry smiled at me. "I'll take you on the way to the studio." 

"Ok thanks, do you want breakfast?" I asked him.

"Nah, I'll get a coffee on the way." He said standing up, "Let’s go."

I grabbed my bag and phone and followed Harry out the door locking it behind me.

The car ride was quiet until Harry said, "I like your top."

I instantly regretted wearing that top and blushed lightly. 

"It looks good on you." 

"You’re doing it again." I said stubbornly and he chuckled.

We got to school and he park opposite it. I got out and Harry came around to my side which was facing the school. I could already see people staring at us.

"What are you doing? You are not coming any further with me."

"We are in the public now, so that means you’re my girlfriend." Harry winked at me.

I stood with my back against the car and Harry was leaning on it next to me with his hand on my skin on my lower back where the top didn't reach.

"I have to go." I said beginning to move.

Harry leant in placing a soft kiss on my cheek and moved with lips over to my ear and whispered, "Have a nice day, baby." I walked off waving him goodbye.

I walked inside greeting my friends how I usually do. Jemma stood there with her mouth wide open just staring at me; I unlocked my locker and looked at her confused. I could feel people in the corridor staring at me, awkward.

"What?" I asked her pretending nothing has been happening.

Rachael and Aria came and stood next to her pulling the same face as Jemma.

"You have a lot to explain." They all said at the same time as if they had been practicing for a week.

The bell rang and I winked at them before turning around to my first class, maths.

I walked in and everyone was already seated. Everyone went silent and stared at me.

I took my seat next to Emily and she just looked at me.

"Welcome, Tess." Mr Mitchell said from the front of the classroom and I smiled at him.

"I would ask you a millions questions but I have no idea what to say, oh my god Tess!" Emily said next to me.

Thank God she has nothing to say, let’s hope it stays that way. "I know." I said to her pretending that he is the best thing ever.

Suddenly everyone in the class snaps back into reality and could talk again, all at the same time. People start surrounding me and asking me questions about Harry and congratulating me on the Olympics. I just want to cry. This is so intimidating. I looked around didn't answer any questions. I knew I shouldn't have come today. It like I was being tortured, I just had to sit here while everyone swarmed around me shouting things at me. 

"SILENCE!" Mr Mitchell boomed from the front of the classroom. Everyone scatted back to their seats and pretended like nothing happened. I slipped my phone out from my back pocket and texted Harry hiding my phone behind my books.

To: Harry

"I thought people said maths was supposed to be fun. :(" 

I'm pretty good at hiding my phone, I have been caught a few times before but I just say that it's important.

About a minute later he replied.

From: Harry

"Is everything ok? I can pick you up if you want.xx"

I don't think I need to be picked up I can just suck it up and put up with it.

To: Harry

"I'll make it out alive. Maybe. x"

To put that 'x' on the end took me 5 minutes to decide on whether I should or not. But I thought I should because Harry did and it would make me feel better.

Maths finished and I had to keep my head down and just ignore everyone but at times it was hard. People were staring, asking me questions, giving me rude comments. Emily was being really nice, I know she’s a bit clingy but everyone was so in my face and stuff that she just stood by me and told me it's all okay. But most of all my friends were there to support me the most and they weren’t all in my face they were really funny and cool about it. I told them about me and Harry, of course not that it's fake, but a story that me and Harry agreed on telling people. 

I was walking down the corridor with Aria one time and we walked past a group of year 9 girls. I just kept my head down as I felt them all staring at me. I heard one girl say, "Cough. Slut." And her friends around her laughed. People have been saying things like that to me all day. It hurts.

I was in my last lesson, photography, and my teacher was doing a presentation on the board about something. My phone buzzed in my back pocket and I again hid it behind my books. Aria saw what I was doing and smiled at me. 

From: Harry

"If it makes you feel any better, we are going out for dinner tonight. ;) xx"

Why did he have to put a winky face there? I smiled to myself at the thought of dinner.

To: Harry

"I think anything can make me feel better. This place is hell. :( x"

Wait why are we sending x's we aren’t a couple when texting, oh well. 

I have never felt more trapped or uncomfortable in my life. People were getting more and more annoying and rude. I just wanted to cry.

From: Harry

"I will be there soon. Just stay out of trouble. xx"

Trouble. I want to turn around and stand up for myself. I want to slap some people. But that could be the worst thing I could do, I just had to hold it in.

To: Harry

"Can I punch the next person who looks at me or talks to me? x"

I'd have a pretty sore hand if I punched everyone who did that.

From: Harry

"Maybe you shouldn't... They're looking at the top you're wearing, damn. ;)"

I looked down to see half my stomach. Everyone wears these tops! Some are even worse. I didn't reply to his message because he said 'damn' and put a winky face there. 

Twenty minutes later the bell rang and everyone sprang up from their seats. I walked into the corridor and people were still staring and whispering thing to their friends. Aria sent me and sympathetic smile and I sent her a one as if to say 'it’s ok'. I grabbed my bag from my locker and made my way to the exit keeping my head down. I walked outside of the school building relieved to see Harry across the road in the parking lot leaning against his car. 

Never in my life had I been through such a terrible day at school. 

I quickly walked over to him and wrapped my arms around him. I leaned into his chest feeling safe and away from all the people at school today. I wanted to cry but I knew that right now was not the time. He wrapped his arms around me and whispers in my hair, "It's ok, baby."

"I don’t want to go back to that place ever again in my life." I mumbled into his chest and I felt his chest vibrate when he chuckled lightly.

I pulled away and smile to him and said, "Sorry, I just needed a hug." I walked around to the other side of the Range Rover and climbed in.

After a few moments of driving Harry asked, "How bad was it?"

"Take what you think is bad and times it by like... say 10?" I joked and Harry laughed.

"You would have been so pissed the whole day." Harry chuckled.

"Shut up, I was, I was seriously about to ripped out every year 7, 8 and 9 girl’s hair. Where are we going?" 

Harry laughed and then said, "We are going grocery shopping." 

"Ew, people." I groaned as we pulled into the store.

We got out and Harry came around to my side. He gripped his hand in mine and we walked into the store together.

We grabbed a few item and put them in the trolley and then walked into the next isle, the chocolate isle. There was a boy about mine and Harry's age in there looking at all the blocks of chocolate.

"Niall?" Harry asked the boy and we started walking towards them.

"HARRY!" The boy, Niall said in a strong Irish accent. He was so cute.

"Hi, I'm Tess." I said standing next to Harry.

"I've heard all about you from Harry." Niall winked at me. "I'm in his band by the way." 

"I know." I giggled.

"Wow, that’s Tess the diver!" Niall yelled. "You did so well at the Olympics, good job! Can I please have a photo?" Niall asked.

"Sure." I said standing next to Niall. He gave his phone to Harry and we took a picture together.

"Thank you so much." Niall said. "Hey Harry, she should have dinner with us boys one night!"

"Sure, tomorrow night, it can be at your place Niall." Harry said smiling.

"Ok, I can't wait. I have to run I will see you tomorrow Harry, and you tomorrow night." Niall pointed at me walking away with some chocolate in his hands.

We finished off our grocery shopping and went to the checkout to pay. Harry insisted that he should pay and I didn't feel like putting up a fight. This time there was a few paparazzi’s outside but we tried our best to ignore them.
