2. First day of school!

Harriet’s POV:

 

As soon as we pulled up in front of our new house I knew I would be miserable. Even though the house was very nice and modern I kept thinking about how I would have no friends, no connections here, and worst of all I would be the attention drawing new girl at South-London high school. I gazed around the street, it was actually nicely kept; the bushes neatly trimmed, flowers arranged everywhere, and all the houses where detached. “I’ll take the stuff inside, why don’t you have a look around the neighbour hood?” My dad smiled. I nodded and sat on the pavement, pulling out a few daisies and began to make a daisy chain. I heard a door open then click shut again and looked to see probably the cutest boy I had ever seen. He had a mop of blonde hair and ocean blue eyes. He caught me looking and gave me a dazzling brace covered smile. I blushed and looked down at my daisies. “So you’re new around here?” He asked, when I looked up he was sitting right beside me on the path. “Yeah I just moved here from New Castle” I squeaked shyly. “Awesome, I’m Niall Horan, I live just next door” He smiled whilst holding out his hand. “Harriet Andrews” I smiled whilst shaking his hand. “Pleased to MEAT you!” He beamed. I giggled at him. “Well I have to the store to get some eggs, I’ll see you around Harriet” He smiled. “See you around” I said back but he was already out of hearing distance.

 

My alarm clock beeped harshly in my ear. The first day of school had come far too quickly. I rubbed my eyes gingerly and sighed; I was not at all a morning person. I looked out the window to see my dad’s car gone; so he must have already gone to work. It must be hard for him; with mum dead and a new job where he had to move away from where he grew up. I changed into my Green Day shirt and a pair of light skinny jeans. For breakfast I just threw down some orange juice and some cereal. Slipping on my black ankle converses and grabbing my jacket I locked the door and started to venture to school.

 

When I arrived at the gates I was one of the first people to arrive. Everyone turned to stare. Everyone. I hid behind my dark hair and hurried over to a far corner. And there I stayed until the bell for class rang and I hurried off with the crowd.

 

My first stop was the school office where I had to pick up my school planner and timetable. The woman at the desk had honey coloured hair and warm, kind eyes. “I’ll get someone to show you around the school dear, just a second” She smiled kindly. After a minute or two she cam back, a boy with a mop of curly brown hair and green eyes trailing behind her. “Harriet this is Harry” She motioned to the boy stood behind her. He smiled widely and I timidly waved. “C’mon, I’ll show you around” He smiled while taking my hand and pulling me behind him. “So here is the science department and over there is the maths and English departments” He said kindly, pointing at each of them as he explained. And just around the corner is the lockers and the music department and the PE hall, and just up there you’ll find everything of less importance if I might say.” He smiled. “Thanks” I managed to say. “So what’s your first lesson?” He asked curiously. “Physic’s” I smiled. “And you’re sure you know where to go?” He asked worriedly. “Positive” I beamed. “Then I’ll be on my way then, I’ll see you later Harriet” He smiled. And with that I plodded down the empty halls to my first class.

 

Lunch came fairly quickly; maybe this school wasn’t as bad as I first thought. I had already made a few friends who I had agreed to sit with at lunch. “C’mon Harriet” Jenny called. “We’ll sit over here” she said while half dragging me over to a table. "The others will be here in a minute. They had Mr Kemp last lesson and from what i heard; he's not in a very good mood" She sighed while un zipping her lunch box. "See here they come" A grin lining her face when she saw them. "Jenny!" A small girl with short honey coloured hair squealed. Then her gaze fell onto me. "Niamh this is Harriet, Harriet this is Niamh" She introduced us while making hand gestures between us. "Hi" She smiled shyly "Nice to meet you"i smiled back. "So whats the plan for the weekend?" Jenny said clearing her throut. "Er, we're going to Nandos at three then when we're done we're coming back to mine for the ultimate sleepover" Niamh grinned. "Do you want to come too?" Niamh asked. "Well im not doing anything this weekend so sure" I agreed. "Okay meet at my place at three pm" She grinned excitedly.  "I'll be there!" I grinned.

The rest of the day went by in what seemed like a blur; soon i was standing in the cold rain by the bus stop, my hair was plastered to my forehead. I didn’t realise someone else was there until I jumped when somebody said “Oh hey Harriet! Didn’t see you there!” He chuckled when I jumped. “Hi Niall” I answered calmly trying to catch my breath from being shocked. “Lovely weather isn’t it?” He said sarcastically. “I know, could get sunburn if I stand out here to long” I joked back.  “So what you doing out here in the rain?” He asked. “Oh you know, just hunting for stray honey badgers” I answered calmly. He looked at me, confusion clear in his eyes. “Was that Sarcasm?” He asked. “Niall it’s a bus stop, you wait for buses here” I laughed. “Well in that case it is my duty as a man to save a maiden in distress, c’mon I’ll give you a ride home” He smiled holding his hand out. “Don’t have to ask me twice.” I said gratefully, taking his hand and letting him lead me to his car. “This is it” He said motioning to a small trendy blue car. “Nice ride” I breathed. “Thanks, my Mum got me it for my birthday” This made me think of my own mother, how one morning we had woke up and she had passed away, from cancer which we didn’t even know she had. My throat started to swell and a small whimpered escaped my lips. Niall immediately looked over at me, concern spreading across his face. “Harriet what’s wrong?” He demanded. “Nothing just got something in my throat” I assured him while clearing my throat. “Well okay, if your sure” He said wearily.

The rest of the ride was spent in silence until we finally pulled up in front of my house. My dad’s car wasn’t there so he must still be at work. We both got out of the car and we walked up to my door. “Do you urh… Do you want to come inside?” I asked awkwardly. “Sure” He said simply. I unlocked the door and motioned for him to enter and then as soon as we were both inside I shut the door. “Nice place you got here” He said while looking around. “Thanks, we haven’t finished unpacking yet so be careful not to trip over any boxes which might be in the way” I warned him. “Yes Ma’am” He saluted. He followed me into the kitchen and sat down on one of the stools as I browsed in the fridge until finally deciding to have a can of coke. “Want one?” I offered. “You know it” He simply said. I through a can across the counter and he caught it like a pro. “Nice catch!” I grinned. “Well you have very good aim… For a girl!” He mocked. “Sexist” I murmured under my breath. “Heard that” He called after me as I went to get changed.

 

The rest of the night was surprisingly fun. We watched a film and ate way too much cookie dough ice cream for two people. “I actually had fun tonight” He said to himself. “Excuse me, in case you didn’t know, I am the fun master” I said, pretending to be offended. “Well its getting late, should head back” He yawned. “You can sleep over if you want to… Only if you want to” I offered shyly, going a nice shade of tomato red. He seemed to consider this. “Sure why not” He beamed “Are we gonna do each others nails and hair?” He laughed. His laugh made me laugh. “Why not? I bet you’ve always wanted to be a pretty boy” I laughed. He just scoffed. “Okay well I’ll go get some blankets and pillows and stuff” I said quickly before rushing out of the room. “Don’t trip over any boxes that might happen to be in the way!" He called after me. “Yes Ma’am!” I shouted over my shoulder.

 

So now knowing that we could stay up much later; since it wasn’t a school night, we watched three more movies, ate more ice cream and had a pillow fight that lasted about ten seconds before we realised that it was stupid and that we should just stop and pretend it never happened. “I like you Andrews” Niall said all of a sudden. “I didn’t realise I had a nick name” I said with distaste. “It was either that or Harry” He shrugged. “Don’t you have a friend called Harry?” “Oh yeah, I suppose that would be a little confusing, not to mention weird” He shrugged. “You forgot creepy” I added. He nodded in agreement. He then turned his attention back to watching The Dark Knight Rises. “TAG!” I screamed all of a sudden while running upstairs. “Oh hell n’aw!” He laughed while getting up to chase after me. “You’ll never take me alive!” I screamed while rushing into the backroom and leaning against the door so he couldn’t get in. “that’s your opinion” He said through the door. I had to use all of my strength to keep the door closed until finally my muscles gave in and I landed on the white furry mat next to the bath. A moment later Niall landed on top of me and we both started to giggle like fools. When we both stopped laughed we were lost in each others eyes. Niall looked back and forth from my eyes to my lips until finally he closed the distance and we had our first kiss. He positioned his hands on either side of my head as I swung my arms around his neck as he deepened this kiss. After what seemed like hours the kiss ended, which was far less sooner than I would have liked. “Wow” We both said breathlessly. “Well it’s getting late and I’m exhausted, so we should go to sleep” He yawned. “Yeah me too” I agreed as he took my hand and led me back to the living room. He switched off the telly and lay on the couch beckoning for me to like next to him, which I did. He then pulled the covers over us both and put his arms around me and I fell asleep in his arms.
