Just another Boy

Nellie Bane is not your average girl. She's the best woman boxer in all of her home state, Illinois. While back home in Chicago, she goes to do a boxing match before going to the One Direction concert, her favorite band in the world. When Harry Styles comes to the Gym and sees Nellie, he immediately falls for her. Will Nellie retire from boxing and go back to London with Harry or will she continue doing her passion and make Harry "just another boy."


5. Your hand fits in mine likes it's made just for me

    I fell asleep on my aunt's couch. I got up the next morning at 5:00 and walked to the gym. I went into the locker rooms and changed into my spare shorts and sports bra. I taped my hands and brought out my bright pink boxing gloves. I started punching the punching bag, getting increasingly harder. I let all of my emotions out.

    After an hour of beating up the punching bag, I started to cry. Not only because I had lost one of my best friends but because I also lost Harry. And I know that be just met but he's...... different. Different than any other guy I've met. I took off my gloves and punched harder and harder. I kept punching until my knuckles started to bleed. I started jumping rope and doing push ups and sit ups and lifting weights, all until the door opened. I froze and looked at the door. My eyes were red and puffy as tears still trickled down. I had no makeup on and my hands were drenched in my own blood. I looked as if I was crazy and I was.

    I would have noticed those curls anywhere. Harry was here.

    I stared as he walked in with a duffel bag and workout clothes. "W-what are you doing here?!" I asked, surprised. "I came to see if you would teach me how to box." He said. "I'm sorry but I was just leaving." I said, angrily. "Please Nellie? Just this once?" Harry asked hopefully. I threw him a roll of tape and gloves.

    "How am I supposed to use this tape?" He asked seriously. "Are you joking?" "Um no." He said. I ran up to him and took off my gloves. "Look. I taped my hands before boxing. You don't need it because I'm just going to teach you the techniques but you might want to get the feel of it." I said. "Will you tape my hands for me?" I looked down at his, big, muscular hands. I nodded. I led him to the chairs near the practice ring. We sat down as I grabbed the tape. I gently pulled one of his hands into my lap and make to tape it. I slightly smiled at him. "See all you do is just rap the tape around your palm, wrist, thumb, and knuckles. I'll go get more tape." I said.

    I stood up and started to walk away but tripped over a water bottle. Harry offered his hand to me and I gladly took it. The weird thing was that it felt like they fit perfectly. I slightly blushed. "Thank you." "Any time." I started to walk to get more tape and Harry followed me. "So about last night..." He began. I didn't speak. "Why did you leave?" He asked. "Bailee was just making me mad." I said. "You know that there was nothing there between us. I really don't-" "Harry, it's alright. I get it." I said. "But you don't. You don't get it. I saw you crying Nellie. Why?" "I don't know I just-" I began but I was interrupted when Harry's lips met mine. The kiss began to get more intense by the second until I finally pulled away. "Harry I-" "No I'm sorry. I should go." He said. "Harry please. Just stay." I couldn't believe the words came out of my mouth. We stared into each others eyes. "Will you go out with me?" He asked. "What? You like want me to be your girlfriend?!" I asked. "Yes. Please Nellie. I really have feelings for you. There's nothing for Bailee." He said. "Harry I don't know. I don't want to get distracted from fighting." I said. "You won't. Please?" He asked. I closed my eyes and thought for and few seconds. "Alright." I said. "Oh thank god!" He said and hugged me tight. "How would you feel about going to a movie? 6:30 alright?" I said. "Perfect. You're still going to teach me how to box right?" He asked. " Yea" I said as I looked for the tape.
