Chapter 22


Harry Styles

I walk down the hallway, pushing past bodies scurrying to get to their next class.

Once I get to my destination, I let out a relieved sigh that she was still there.

"Julia?" I call.

She turns to me, huffs, and begins to walk away.

I desperately grab her arm.

"Please." I beg.

Her look softens briefly, before becoming firm again.

"Please make Maggie go to the Talent Show. Please. I need her to go to this more than anything in the world. I beg you. I own you one. A million. However many just please get her to go."

She yanks her arm out of my grip. "Fine."

"Thank you Julia!" I exclaim, giving her a backwards hug.

She shrugs me off. "Don't. Touch. Me."

I back up, throwing my hands up in defense.

After she walks away I throw my fist in the air, like at the end of the Breakfast Club. Although time didn't stop though.

I realize people are staring and I stuff my hands in my pockets, walking to my next class.


"Can we take a break? I'm hungry." Niall asks. I nod my head, grabbing the half full water next to me and chugging it.

Niall makes a beeline for the kitchen. 

"Typical, typical." Zayn laughs.

I collapse on the couch, sighing.

"What's up?" Louis asks, creasing his eyebrows.

"What if it doesn't work?" I ask. Liam and Zayn had followed Niall to the kitchen, leaving Louis and I alone. 

Louis sighs, taking a swig of the water bottle he held. "I don't know, Haz. If she doesn't see you tried, she isn't worth it."

I look at my hands. "I guess you're right." After Niall finished eating, we got back to work. 


Maggie Butler

"But you have to go!" Julia exclaims, and she blows on her wet nails. 

"Why?" I groan. Gracey walks out of the bathroom. 

"What'd I miss?" She drawls.

I laugh lightly before answering. "Julia's trying to convince me to go to the Talent Show." I roll my eyes. 

"Sounds like fun! Lets all go together!" She says excitedly. I look at her with wide eyes.

"What? You actually want to go to that?" I ask in disbelief. 

She nods. Julia looks at me with a 'mmhhmm' look.

"Fine." I groan, finally giving in.

"Yay!" Julia and Gracey say in unison.

"Why do you guys want to go so bad anyways?" I ask, taking a bite out of an Oreo.

They exchange glances before both speaking at the same time, making the words incomprehensible. 

I raise an eyebrow.

"It'll be fun." Gracey says.

I stare at them for while before answering. 

"I guess I could have a little fun." I give in. 

"We can have a movie night afterwards!" Julia squeals.

I roll my head back, laughing. "Sounds good." 

They sober up and stare at me. "What?" I ask, confused.

"You've been sad lately." Julia says.

I pick at the hem of my shirt. "No, no, I'm not-"

"Maggie. We know you almost better than you." Gracey says.

"Okay, I guess the whole thing with Harry has stressed me out a tad."

"A tad?" Julia asks, knowingly.

"You know what I mean." I say, rolling my eyes.

"Well this Friday at the show should relieve some stress." Gracey says.

"Maybe." I didn't believe myself.
