Chapter 16
Harry Styles<><><>
I push open the doors with a whole in my heart. I hadn't slept for 2 days, and if I did, it was only for a matter of minutes.
"Dude, you look like shit." Chase says, walking up to me.
He was right, this morning, I hadn't touched my hair, which was crazy, since I strived to have my hair perfect. I had bags under my eyes from exhaustion. I slugged down to my locker and tried to open it. I gave up on the second try and banged my head against the locker door.
"You alright mate?" Logan asks, walking towards us.
I just groan in response.
"I'll take that as a no."
I turn around, my back against the lockers and shutting my eyes. I could hear Logan and Chase whispering, obviously about me. Just then, I felt someone press their lips to mine. I snap my eyes open to see Lacie standing there, still having her lips against mine. I push her away. She just smirks. I hear a faint, very faint whimper. I snap my head to the right, to see Maggie standing there, obvious tears in her eyes.
"Maggie it's not-"
"No it's fine. Why should I care anyway? It's not like we are together anymore, right?" She strains, obvious pain behind the even tone of her voice.
Then, just as quick as she came, she was gone. I groan again and hit my head against the lockers, again.
"Harry we don't need her," Lacie says in a flirty voice, stroking my arm.
I shrug her hand off of me.
"I don't want you here Lacie! No one does! Just go away before you ruin everything else in my life!" I sputter.
She looks at me, appalled, then she huffs and walks away.
"Harry," Logan looks at me sternly. "What happened?"
I sigh.
"Can we talk about this later?"
They shrug.
Just then, we hear a voice coming over the speakers.
"Hey students! Don't forget the Talent Show coming up after Winter Break! Sign up in the Administration Office. Be sure you participate! The winner will win a recording contract with a record deal if you are singing; if you are doing anything else we will discuss the prize for you when we get there. Thanks for listening!"
"Only nerds are I the talent show." Chase scoffs.
I just nod.
The rest of the day, all I could focus on was Maggie. She was the only thing that I looked forward to in life.
I get in my car and pull of of the parking space, all of a sudden, I hear metal on metal.
I groan. I open the door and slam it shut. At the same time, Maggie gets out of her Mustang. I look at the scratches. There was a deep scratch just. Above the gas tank on my car. Her front bumper had a black dent in it.
I scratch the back of my neck. "I guess we should exchange insurance."
"Whatever." She says dryly.
"Look Maggie," I start.
"Can we just get this done? I don't want to talk to you."
I sigh and hand her my information. She hands me hers and get hops in her car and drives off. I get in my car and drive home.
I collapse on my bed and try to sleep. No luck. I look at the time. It was almost midnight. I get up and grab my keys off the counter. I drive, tapping my fingers to the beat of the song on the steering wheel. I pull up in her driveway and knock on the door.
She doesn't answer. I knock again, this time adding the doorbell. After five minutes, she answers it, hair in a big knot, eyes droopy. Once she sees me, she slams the door in my face.
"C'mon Maggie!" I yell, pounding on the door.
"Maggie! I'm just going to lay out here until you open the door!"
"Good! I hope you freeze!"
I groan and collapse on the ground. I close my eyes. Nothing. I lean against the door and pull out my phone. I text Maggie.
To Maggie: I won't give up.
I throw my phone on the ground and hit the back of my head against the door.
Then, just my luck, it starts raining.
"Maggie!" I groan.
This was going to be a long night.
