Wanted You More

Bethany is top in her class, head-strong, and basically you're definition of a perfect girl but she has no intention of trying to be like every other girl and try to get Harry, the popular, good looking, soccer star, to like her...in fact, she doesn't really like him. But when Bethany is assigned to help Harry get his grades up and he realizes that Bethany is different than everyone else, will Bethany cave into giving Harry a chance or will she continue to stick to her idea that he is a spoiled, stuck up ass?

Includes sex, drugs, alcohol, self harm references/actions, and cursing.


24. Speech



Watching them walk together killed me. I had left my study to go to the library to talk to Bethany, since that’s normally where she is during study period. But when I got there, I found her talking to Liam and the conversation seemed pretty serious. I wanted to tell Liam to leave her alone, but I knew Liam would do no such thing…especially since they dated. He clearly still liked her and no matter how hard I convinced myself otherwise…I knew she still liked him too.

“Hey mate.” I turned around and saw Liam sit down next to me. Bethany had joined her other friends today and not us, making lunch a lot easier on me. 

“Where’s Bethany?” Niall asked.

“With her friends.” Liam said as he sat down by me.

“Oh…that’s a shame.”

“Since when have you liked her?” I asked, surprised.

“She seems like she could be a lot of fun. You always talk so highly of her and she and Liam are practically attached at the hip so…she must be pretty cool.”

“You talk about her…?” Liam asked, looking at me. I suddenly tensed up. All I’ve really been was a player, I’ll even admit that…so I know Liam is never going to let me near her again if he finds out I like her.

“Well…she is my tutor.” I said slowly. Liam gave me a blank stare.

“Right…” Liam said, unconvinced.

“Hey lads!” We all looked as Louis and Zayn sat down, saving my ass.

“Hey.” I said as I shoved some food in my mouth.

“Where’s Bethany?” Zayn asked.

“Why does everyone ask me that?” I half shouted. They all looked at me and I looked down.

“I was asking in general…” Zayn said slowly.

“Oh…right.” I nodded, slightly embarrassed.

“Hey guys.” We all looked up and Bethany slid down in the seat next to me, making me shift slightly.

“Hey!” Niall and Liam said together.

“So, Harry…how’s your English speech coming?” She turned to me and I froze up.

“Uhm…what speech?” Bethany raised an eyebrow.

“The one you’ve been working on every day we work together…?” Bethany said slowly. I swallowed my food quickly and nodded rapidly.

“Yeah, that one…it’s going good. Why?”

“It was rumored they might be due by the end of this week instead of next week. Make sure you have it done.”

“Yeah, I will…”

“Do you want me to read it when you’re finished?”

“NO!” I shouted, making her jump. “Sorry…I mean, no I can handle it.”

“Alright. Bye than.” She got up and walked back to her friends, making me sigh.

“What the hell was that about? I’ve never seen you so jumpy over a girl ever…” Louis said, half smiling.

“Nothing…she surprised me is all.”

“Yeah…okay mate.” Zayn said, smirking. I blushed and looked down at my food, suddenly not hungry anymore.
