27. New Girl

When I woke up the next morning at four, I turned on the news while I was getting ready to run to the gym for practice. They were talking about some cyber- attack but suddenly it changed to Harry Styles and his new girl.

Harry Styles was seen last night all cozied up with the one and only Bethany Wacker. Many know her as the professional underground fighter. How long have these two been seeing each other before making it public? I guess we just have to keep an eye on her and Styles to find out won’t we?

I gulped down my water and toast, trying to hold it down. They were going to be following me. I couldn’t hold this to Harry though; it wasn’t his fault he was famous…or, it was but…I chose to be with him. I knew this was going to be part of the package. I shook it off, left Harry a note, and walked outside. I started my run to the gym hoping it would clear my head for awhile. This sure as hell was going to be a day.

“Good morning; glad you could be on time. I saw on the news that you had a late night.” Coach Mike pointed out.

“I could’ve skipped all together.” I pointed out, taking my hoodie off so I was just in a sports bra and shorts.

“I’m not complaining.” Mike pointed out before walking back into his office. I sighed as I went to go work with the bag. I put my headphones in and let the anger towards the press push me today. Thank goodness, even though Harry made me happy, I still had things that made me angry and pissed off…or I wouldn’t be able to do this.

Around five, I had finished practice and was getting ready to leave when Mike stopped me before I could get anywhere.

“You won’t have any matches until next week so enjoy tomorrow- take off.”

“Are you sure?”

“I’m positive; just don’t forget everything you owe me. If you want to stay out of jail, this is what you owe me. After you finish paying it off you’re off the hook.”

“I know Mike; how much more do I owe you?”

“Thirty thousand.”

“Alright…I’ll pay you off, or die trying.”

“You’re worth more alive than dead at this point.”

“Yes sir.” I said before walking out. Mike, as much of a father he was to me, I knew he was using me for the money. At any point and time he could turn me in for what I did but instead he took me under his wing and I only have to pay the fine of what I would’ve gotten if I had gotten arrested. Honestly, I would rather pay Mike than a court so…I was going to take it.

When I got home, Harry was on the couch with his friends. I was a little surprised but I shook it off quickly, not else sure what I could’ve done about it.

“Uhm…hello.” I said, making them all turn to face me.

“I got bored and was too lazy to leave.” Harry said and I nodded slowly.

“Right, hey guys.”

“Hey!” They all said happily.

“So, what time are you going to be gone tomorrow?”

“Uhm…I have tomorrow off. Mike was being nice.”

“Really?” Harry asked, sounding surprised.

“Okay, everyone, we’re going back to our place. Bethany, this includes you. As much as I love it here, I miss my bed.”


“I’m not mad babe, but I don’t get to see you much as it is so…you’re going to spend every free minute with me tomorrow.” I nodded as Harry got up and kissed my head. We went back to my room, packed me an overnight bag, and then Harry drove us both back to his house.

When we got there, paps were everywhere trying to get pictures but when I stepped out of the car, they went ape shit. The flashing was blinding me, the screaming gave me a headache and I knew Harry was trying to get us inside so we didn’t need to hear it anymore. We finally pushed through them all and got inside, and I realized I hadn’t been breathing through that whole process.


“Welcome to my life.” Harry said sarcastically.

“You’ve seen mine, now I get to see yours?”

“Trust me…when they find out where you live, it won’t get much better for you; your lifestyle will be like mine; paps wise anyway.”

“Oh I’m so excited.”

“I sense sarcasm.” Harry joked as we walked up to his room to drop my overnight bag off. I giggled and fell onto his bed, already tired. “What are you doing?”

“Two things- I like your bed and I’ve been working out all day so I’m tired as fuck.”

“I believe it.” Harry said, falling down next to me. We cuddle up to each other and held each other for what seemed like forever until we fell asleep in each other’s arms.
