5. The Cabin

“Harry there is no way in hell I am doing that!” I protested as Harry had came up with the idea to strip down to nothing but are under garments and swim across to the other side of the lake. Oh and did I mention this little cheeky bastard already take his shirt off? Because he did.

Jesus take the wheel.

“There is no other way to get there!” He complained and I looked around until I spotted a small boat tied up to the dock.

“You have been coming here and have never realized there was a fucking boat right there.” I said pointing to the boat. He looked at the boat then back at me and shrugged.

“Can’t blame a guy for trying.” He responded and it took me a moment to catch on.


“I am not now just get in the boat.” He said stepping into the small boat. Could this even hold the two of us?

Oh well.

I took his hand he was offering to help me and climbed into the boat.

“If this starts to tilt you are swimming.” I warned him and he chuckled.

“It won’t tilt now help me row because I have no idea how.”

“Oh great.” I said sarcastically and he just glared at me and started to move the oar through the water.

It took us about fifteen minutes to actually get across the lake considering we were both terrible at rowing. 

“My arm is killing me.” I whined as I carefully stepped out of the boat.

“You barely even did anything. I did most of the work.” He said rolling his shoulders back and I couldn’t help but stare at his bare chest.

“What did you want to show me?” I asked distracting myself from his torso.

“This way.” He said and starting walking through the trees.

Really Harry I have to walk through plants now?

I let out a sigh before spreading apart the branches and stepping through. Harry was so far in front of me I couldn’t even see him and at first I didn’t think much of it until my UGG got stuck on a branch close to the ground. I tried to free it but it didn’t work.

“Harry!” I called out but he didn’t hear me.

“Harry!” I called louder and I heard the shuffling of the leaves.

“Brooke where the hell are you?”

“Over here.”

“Well will you hurry up.” He called and I mouthed “prick” knowing he couldn’t see me.

“I can’t you dip shit my boot got stuck now get over here and help me.” I demanded and I heard him sigh before he approached me.

“How the hell did you do this?” 

“I don’t know Harry it was your idea to come here so can you just help me.” I huffed crossing my arms. He sighed and bent down then grabbed my foot and practically just started to shake it.

“I don’t think that is working.” I said and he sighed again.

“Can’t you just take off the shoe?” He asked and I shook my head.

“No I don’t have socks on and I don’t feel like having a freezing foot for the rest of the night.” I explained and he started to shake my foot again.

Will this boy ever learn?

I heard a branch snap and the next thing I knew my foot was free.

“Yes I am free!” I called out moving my foot in a little circle.

“Thanks Styles” I told him and he nodded.

“Welcome now come on.” He said and this time he made me go first so I wouldn’t get lost again.

After another minute of walking I came to a rather large cabin planted in the middle of the woods.

“Styles are you trying to get us killed?” I asked Harry and he gave me a weird look.


“This is like a set up for a horror movie. Next thing you know a serial killer is going to like kidnap us and torture us in his basement.” I pointed out and Harry looked at me in horror.

“I highly doubt that Brooke. Just go inside.” He said walking past me. I looked around before crossing my arms and following. 

When we got inside I was surprised of what it looked like. It was like a normal house inside. Not a death trap. The walls where obviously made of wood and it had two floors, the first floor was a tiny kitchen with a wood burning stove placed in the corner and a living room with a large couch, a fire place and over it a flat screen.

“What cabin has a TV?” I asked walking into the living room.

“Well I fixed it up after I found it and I decided to put in a TV.” He responded and I gave him a weird look.

“So you just found this place in the middle of no were?” I asked and he nodded then sat on the couch.

“Yup. I come up here when I need a break from the media or if I need to clear my head.”

“Does anybody know about this place?”


After Harry brought me to the cabin we ended up staying there for about two more hours and I had to admit I saw a side of Harry I never saw before. He wasn’t that prick anymore he was Harry. He was like a normal person not a huge pop star that can get almost any girl. 

“Harry what time is it?” I asked and let a yawn escape my mouth.

“Shit.” He mumbled and I looked at him.


“It is two thirty in the morning.”

“What! Simon is going to kill me!” I exclaimed jumping up from the couch.

“No he is going to kill me!” Harry said and I gave him a confused look.

“Simon told us you were off limits and you are coming home at two in the morning from being with me. Need I say more.” He stated and my eyes widened.

“Oh my god we are screwed!” I cried and Harry chuckled.

“I’m sorry do you think this is funny? Because I will just let Simon know that I was with you and I won’t tell him anything else and let him think what he wants to think.” I said crossing my arms and his eyes widened.

“No! Don’t! Just lets go” He said grabbing my hand and dragging me out of the cabin. He led me to the boat and quickly rowed back to the other side of the lake.

It ended up taking us about a half an hour to get back to Simon’s house and just as I was about to go inside Harry stopped me.

“Told you I never lose.” He smirked then just walked away.

That bastard.

I was tempted to go yell at him but I figured I was already in deep shit with Simon so I just went inside. As soon as I did I saw Simon sitting on the couch looking rather mad.

“Where have you been?” He asked and I thought about it in my head before speaking.

“Well Harry took me to the hospital because I thought my nose was broken and I just got out now.” I half lied. I didn’t want Simon to know that I was with Harry the whole night considering is was “off limits”. 

“Is your nose broken?” He asked and I shook my head.

“Nope. Just bruised.” I said then was about to go upstairs but he stopped me.

“I have to tell you something. I need to go to the states tomorrow for XFactor and they boys are going to be staying here until I get back.” He said and my mouth dropped.

“I have to live with them! No!” I yelled stomping my foot on the ground like the inner six year old I am. 

“Brooke it will only be for a little while. It is my job and you and I both know what will happen if I leave you and Michelle alone.” He said and I sighed.

“I am going to sleep.” I said then walked upstairs and into my room. I didn’t even change before collapsing into bed and drifting off into a deep sleep.
