Dancing Away With My Heart

What happens when bad boy, Harry Styles and Zayn Malik, the quiet one, falls for the most innocent girl in school...Bethany? Will she stop running or will she run faster? *Includes alcohol, sex, references/actions of self-harm, and cursing*


19. 19

After school, I tried to avoid Harry but he was waiting for me by the front doors. I groaned and tried to turn around, hoping he didn’t see me.

“Where do you think you’re going?” Harry asked, grabbing my arm.

“I was hoping to avoid you.”

“Nice try, but now that we’re dating I bring you home from school every day.”

“You don’t need to be so kind.” I said, ripping my arm from his grip.

“But I want to be. Shall we?”

“Do I have a choice?”

“Nope.” I groaned as Harry intertwined our fingers together. He pulled me behind him as we walked to his car. “Alright, so where do you live?”

“You can drop me off at a bus station.”

“Are you serious? You sleep at a bus station?”

“No, but I can take a bus home.”

“Nice try, Bethany.” I groaned and leaned my head against the window. After a good hour of arguing over me giving him directions, I finally gave in and gave him directions to my flat. “Now was that so hard?”

“Yes.” I said stubbornly.

“What exactly do you have against me?”

“I don’t like you; I don’t like anybody. I don’t have the time for a boyfriend.”

“But you have time to argue with me over me driving you home which practically makes you late for dance?”

“WHAT!?” I looked at the clock and realized I had ten minutes to get to dance. I dashed inside to grab my stuff and when I came back outside Harry was still there.

“I’m not going to let you be late to dance; get in.” I thankfully accepted the ride as Harry floored it out of my complex and brought me to dance. I got there right on time and when I walked in, Zayn was there with Niall.

“Just on time, Bethany.”

“Yeah, sorry. I got held up.” I looked back at Harry and flipped him off. He blew me a kiss and I rolled my eyes.

“Is that your boyfriend?”

“No. He’s someone who wants to be.” I said sassily.

“Nah, we’re dating. She agreed to it.” Harry jumped in. I shook my head and kicked my sneakers off.

“Alright, well…you get working on your solo in here. I’m going to take the others into the mirror room.” I nodded and went to set my music up. The three boys sat down in a row when Matt entered the stage.

“Hey Beth; what’s up?”

“Well…I’m supposed to be practicing. What are you doing here? Aren’t you only used during recitals?”

“Well yeah…but I figured we could make yours into a light show along with your solo so I came to experiment.” I smiled and kissed his cheek.

“I’m open to that; go ahead.” He smiled and made his way back up to the booth. “GIVE ME A THUMBS UP WHEN YOU’RE READY!” I YELLED UP. I looked over at Harry who looked angry at me for kissing Matt but I didn’t even care. I saw the thumbs up from Matt, started the music, and let him experiment with the lights.



The lights, plus her dance was killing me. Watching her dance around with how the lights flashed around her made me want her even more. I squirmed in my seat as I watched her practically flip herself over without jumping.

When she finished, I was biting on my lip, trying to hold myself back from going up there to kiss her. I watched as she fixed her hair and took don some water.

“HOW’D THAT LOOK, MATT?!” Bethany called up. I didn’t’ hear a response but she gave him a thumbs up and started the song over and started breaking the dance down into smaller parts.



After practice, I went to see Juliet before I left. She ran into my arms and I carried her on my back out to the main stage.

“How’s your dance coming?” She asked happily.

“It’s coming out alright.” I said.

“I can’t wait to see it!”

“Me either.” I put her down and she went running to Zayn while I pulled my teacher aside. “I had some ideas for my dance.”

“What’s that?”

“I want back-up dancers.” She nodded.

“I don’t think that should be a problem.”

“Good…and I want a boy to dance with.”

“So…a duet?” I nodded and she thought about it. “I can pull boys from my other class and see if they could work with you.”

“That would be highly appreciated, but I have something else in mind. I don’t want him to be able to ballet.”

“Then what exactly do you have in mind?”

“You’ll just have to trust me and see.”

“I can trust you, but I want to see it before opening night.” I nodded and went to get my shoes.

“You won’t be disappointed.” I called to her. She nodded and went to talk to parents. I walked over to Harry and pulled him off to the side. “You want to be my boyfriend, I’ll agree to it on one condition, and you can’t back out.”

“Sure, anything.”

“You need to be my dance partner for the next recital.” Harry started laughing and ran his hands through his curls.

“I can’t do that.”

“And you don’t have to. If you want me to cooperate, you need to do this.” Harry looked around before finally looking back at me.

“Fine.” He shook my hand on it and I pulled away and walked out to his car so he could drive me home.



I couldn’t believe what I had just agreed to doing. It had to have been her dancing that got me to say yes because to have her all over me, doing all those moves…damn…no guy in their right mind would turn it down. Thinking about it now though, I knew I was screwed but if I wanted Bethany to cooperate with me, I’d let her be all over me. So either way, I win; this is a win-win situation.
