4. Chapter 4

From: Harry
'Im taking you out tonight. No ifs, ands or buts. Wear something nice but not too fancy. I'll be there by 7:00 .x"

I glanced at the time. It was 12:48. I overslept because i hadn't gotten home until around 3:30 or 4:00 from the party. I sighed & lazily got out of bed.

I made my way into the bathroom to take a shower. Once in the shower, my mind, again, drifted off to last night.

I couldn't stop thinking about what Alex had told me. Why did he say that? Maybe i was just over thinking things. Then again.. Maybe i wasn't.

I cleansed my skin after washing my hair & turned off the warm water. I quickly grabbed my towel, wrapping it around me & hopped out to walk towards my room.

I took a seat on the bed still in my towel & grabbed my phone. I checked the time and it was only 1:30. I decided to text Steph to ask her if she wanted to hang out before I went out with Harry later tonight. Within minutes i received a text from her telling me she was on her way.


"No fucking way." Stephany said with shock in her voice. "You've got to be kidding me." She looked at me with her mouth slightly open. "Im so sorry. I knew i should've followed you out but i figured it'd be best to let you cool off.. Gosh im such an idiot."

"Oh shut up. It isn't your fault." I responded trying to make her feel less guilty. It really wasn't her fault.

"Well thank god for Harry getting there.." She quickly added looking down, almost sounding like she felt bad for what she had said about him the night before.

"So... He dropped you off & thats it?" She asked, curious to hear my answer.

For once.. I was the one who was talking about a guy & she was the one listening & to be honest.. It felt quite weird. I wasn't used to this.

"Thats it."


"But." I said, her eyes immediately meeting mine. "He texted me this morning telling me he was going to take me out."

"He TOLD you?" She asked disapprovingly. "What is he? Your father?" She added.

"I mean.. It's not really forced cause I don't really mind going out with him tonight."

Although I said i didn't mind, i was actually a bit hesitant about going out with Harry. I barely knew the guy & being alone with someone i just met made me a bit uneasy.

It wasn't hard for Stephany to notice this & said

"Harry's a good guy.. He wouldn't do anything that went too far if you were uncomfortable with it."

Too far? I didn't think that was good enough, but i trusted Stephany's word. She had been my best friend since elementary. Surely if she felt he would do something that would make especially me uncomfortable, she'd tell me.

I also found it kind of strange that shes known Harry for a while now but never once brought him up or invited him to a party or anything. I wondered why but my thoughts were interrupted when she asked "So what are you gonna wear?"

"I don't know.. Jeans & a sweater?" I said not really giving it much thought.

"Jeans and a sweater? Did he tell you where he was taking you?" She asked, almost amazed at my lack of interest in what I planned on wearing.

"Nope. He just said to 'wear something nice but not too fancy'." I said. I'd figured a simple pair of jeans with a nice shirt or jumper kind of fit that criteria.

"No no no. That just won't do." She said before getting up from the couch and making her way upstairs to my bedroom.

Once there, she quickly spun to face me. "What time is he arriving?"

"Around 7:00."

She glanced at the time.


"Perfect." She said before turning around back to my wardrobe & opening it.

I made my way to my bed before sitting down & leaning back, propping myself up on my elbows, staring curiously at her.

She rummaged through my tops before finally pulling out a black see through chiffon blouse.

My eyes widened. "I can't wear that!" I said.

She laughed & said "Relax! You can wear this, under." She pulled out a black bandeau bra & looked at me and smiled.

I shook my head. "No. No. No. Im NOT wearing that. Its WAY too revealing for MY style." I said before snatching the blouse & bra from her hands & shoving it back into the drawer.

"Oh c'mon. Live a little Mel!"

I stayed silent.

She took it back out and threw it on the bed, then proceeded to look through my pants drawer. Not much later, she pulled out my favorite dark wash skinny jeans & added them to the pile of clothing on the bed.

"Next. Shoes." She walked over to my closet and looked down at my shoes.

"Now. He said nice.. But not fancy.. I think heels might be a bit over the top.. Hmm.." She gazed down at my collection of shoes.

I felt like a little kid who was waiting for their mom to pick out their outfit for the school day, but didn't say anything, figuring that i'd better take all the help i can get.

Stephany returned to me on the bed with my pair of black lace ballet pumps & dropped them to the floor.

She joined me on the bed & said "Outfits done. I think you should just leave you hair down, don't do anything to it... Except brush it."

She turned to look at me. Her eyes trailing up at down my face. She seemed lost in thought.

"You alright?" I asked worried.

Stephany's POV:

I looked at her. I wanted to tell her but I couldn't bring myself too, biting my tongue any time i felt the words about to slip out. I didn't want to worry or freak her out.

My mind wandered back to last night. I used the wrong choice of words & it upset her. I carefully thought about what to say this time. I sighed before saying "Just.. Be careful with him.. Don't confuse feelings & don't trust so easily.. Not just him but, in general. I don't want you getting hurt. Okay Mel?"

She looked at me. She could tell I was choosing my words carefully. I calmed down when she smiled.

"Yea, thanks." She said. I was glad that she knew I was looking out for her.


Melanie's POV:

I had just finished putting on my flats & made my way to the bathroom to brush my hair.

I hummed along to the music playing in the background as I looked at myself in the mirror. Stephany had helped me with my clothes and make up. I wasn't really enthusiastic about the make up considering I never really wore any. I didn't want to put on any and planned on going all natural with the exception of maybe a little eye-liner but she insisted on helping me put on a bit more & of course, I gave in.

My humming turned into singing but I was interrupted with a knock on the door. I quickly put my brush down & walked out of the bathroom turning off the light.

I made my way into my room, grabbing my purse, keys and a few other essentials before I headed downstairs. I put on my jean jacket & opened the door to be greeted his perfect face.

"Thought I said nothing fancy!" He said, a small dimpled smile coming across his face.

"Err.. It was-" I cut myself off, opting to not give away the fact that I had received help in choosing what I had to wear.

I honestly didn't think what I was wearing was too fancy but quickly said "I can go change.. It's no problem, I don't wanna be overdressed." I was about to turn around to walk back up stairs when Harry said "Relax Mel! I'm just teasing you. What you're wearing is just fine."

I relaxed a little, glad i didn't have to go back up and change. I wasn't going to change for his sake, but because of the fact that being overdressed or underdressed is always awkward & I really didn't feel like dealing with that.

He took a step closer to me, his tall frame shadowing over me. He leaned down to my ear, his curls tickling the side of my face as he whispered "You look hot."

I felt my cheeks flush red as i pushed him away & outside. I closed the door behind me and he smirked. I felt his hand reach mine & he entwined his fingers with mine before leading me back towards his car.

He opened the door for me & I hopped in. He swiftly shut the door & made his way towards the drivers side of the car. Once in, he made sure the doors were locked & put his seat belt on. He started the car & began to get out of his parking space.

I caught myself staring at his features as he had his eyes fixed intently on the road. To say he was incredibly cute was huge understatement. His curls framed his face perfectly & i could stare at his green eyes all day. His nose was perfectly shaped and his lips were perfectly plump & pink. He just seemed perfectly perfect.

I felt my face burn with embarrassment when I realized he had caught me staring. I quickly turned away to look out the window.

I now felt awkward & immediately tried thinking of something to say, though I knew he was enjoying this.

That's when i received a text.

From: Stephany
'Is everything alright? <3'

I smiled, glad that there was someone who was going to know where I was once i was there, who I was with & was checking up on me. I needed to take at least some precaution before going out with a guy I'd just met.

Sure, I felt almost safe at the moment but i wasn't completely sure about Harry yet.

I quickly replied with 'Everything's fine, thanks babe!' & put my phone away.

I returned my gaze to Harry, still not sure what to talk about to try to break the awkwardness that i still felt. I then remembered Harry & Stephany knew each other.

"So.. How do you & Stephany know each other?" I curiously asked.

I saw his jaw tighten, the question obviously catching him by surprise. He seemed almost bothered by it.

"We're uh.. We're old friends." He turned up the radio and began to quietly sing along to the song playing before i could question him further. He acted as if that would actually prevent me from going on.

I decided to leave it, knowing it bothered him but it only made me question their relationship with each other more. What did they have against each other?
