"Sometimes I have the luck that every girl wants, but not the life..."


4. Confirmed.

Carter's POV:


I sat through my classes, looking at the clock behind my professor. Just one more minute, Carter. I thought to myself.

I reminded myself that staying in school wasn't any better. Right after school, I would just come home to my parents who would demand me to cook food from their tiring day of work. I always reminded myself to take a breath. I stress out too much. 30 seconds. I tapped on my desk with the tip of my pencil as I continued to watch the big hand on the clock rotate each and every second. 10 more seconds.

"Class-" his voice was suddenly cut off by the sound of the bell ringing.

Everyone started to stand up as they gathered their books. I stuffed my notebook in my bag and headed out the door, only to be followed by Bella, my college friend. Most likely, my only friend since sophomore year, high school. She was new to the school, so she didn't really know so much of the 'reputation' I had with .. the past.

She nudged me, "Ugh, Mr. Read can be so boring sometimes."

"I know right?" I scoffed, "His lectures aren't even helpful.. most of the times."

She chuckled, "Yeah. So, can you hang out tonight? I was hoping for a-"

"Sorry." I interrupted her. "Can't." I didn't mean to interrupt her like that, I just had other plans to get over.

"What do you mean-" She cut herself off, realizing the plans I had for tonight. "Oh.. Okay, maybe next time." She was the only person that knew about my plans for the time whenever I would say 'plans' to her. "Tell me all about it. ASAP."

I chuckled, "Ugh, you know I always do."




"March 13, 2015


Dear Diary,


Latest update for today; My plans? I definitely did not lie about. Of course, I would choose Bella over the plans for tonight. Apparently, according to my parents, this cannot be passed up. So I had to. It would be revealed later.

So, still wanna know what has happened in the past four years? Well, I've been more independent and untrustworthy towards my parents. When my father found out about me dating, he wasn't happy. Nada. He lectured me nonstop for two hours while I just sat there like an innocent child on the couch, blacking out over the words he was saying. Then, once I got my phone back, my parents made me change my phone number. My social networking sites? Got deleted. Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr.. Everything. They say I could have it back when I was officially disciplined.

Now that I'm 18, I still don't have the life every teenage girl has. I know I shouldn't be complaining too much, because there are other people in the world who have worst lives than me.

Or is there?


Confused, yet understandable,

Carter Hanson xx"




Harry's POV:


"You know this is going to spread all over the world sooner or later, right?" Zayn nudged me when I got off my long phone call for the second time today. I didn't notice when he was standing by the doorway when I finished my conversation. I turned towards the doorway where he was standing under.

"Yeah, but I think later would be fine. We're not ready. Quite yet." I sighed as I buried my head in my heads tiredly. The time differences were often so hard to deal with that I couldn't keep up with.


I interrupted him, "Thanks, Zayn. I get it." I said sarcastically. I covered myself with a quilt over my body and looked away from his direction.

"I'm just saying, I know how hard it is for you." I felt his weight on the other side of my bed, signalling me that he was sitting by the edge.

"Yeah. Apparently, she isn't ready yet." I mumbled. I felt his hand on my back. "Just, leave it for now. When we're ready, we'll tell everyone. Even the boys."

I heard him exhale, "Okay. Just to let you know, we have an interview tomorrow at 12. Get some sleep now, and you better be ready for that interview. We have to sing too."

"Yeah, yeah. I get it." I muttered against my pillow, waving my hand to get him out.




When I woke up in the morning, light was streaming in through the window. I looked at my digital clock that read, 9:34 a.m. I groaned and rolled myself out of bed. I crept out of my room and knocked lightly on the boys' room to wake them up. They opened their doors moments later as I rubbed my sleepy eyes and headed to the bathroom to wash up.

An hour later after we had all cleaned up, we met downstairs in the dining room for some breakfast. Liam has fetched us some store bought breakfast, since he was the earliest one finished dressing up. I sat beside Zayn while everyone else were across from us, together with their couples.

"Okay, what's the plan today?" Louis suddenly started the silent conversation from the table.

I grabbed a bagel from the center and placed it on my plate, along with some cream cheese. "I heard we had an interview in the afternoon, and I'm guessing another concert rehearsal?"

Zayn nodded back at me, reassuring me that I was correct.

"Is that it?" Niall mused. "If we didn't have any other plans, I was hoping to have some time with Jasmine."

I sighed and put my knife down. "I think that's it. Where are you guys headed?"

"Not sure yet." Niall said as he stuffed his face with his bagel. "Jasmine's probably going to decide."

"Aren't you afraid you might be mobbed by fans?" Liam questioned through the sound of utensils touching the surfaces of plates.

Jasmine shook her head, "Not really. I mean, it's been long now. We're use to it." Niall smiled proudly, smiling back at Jasmine as we all continued to eat our breakfast in silence.




"So boys, tell me what's it like to be working for a long time now. I mean, you guys are getting older. Any plans on separating?" The interviewers suddenly asked us.

"We're best mates." Zayn started, clasping his hands. "We've been together since the start, and it'll always stay like that. We love each other, and I guess that's all that matters."

The audience cooed, and we all laughed at their expressions. "So there are no plans on you guys breaking up? It has been a few years."

"No plans whatsoever. Even if we do, that's IF.." Louis emphasized, not alarming the audience. "We'll always stick by each other."

I ruffled my hair, swinging it to the side when the interviewer continued. “So, Niall… How are things with Jasmine?”

“Great!” Niall answered as glanced at Jasmine in the audience. She gave him a small wave and he blushed.

“There was a rumor a couple weeks ago that you and Jasmine broke up.” Niall couldn’t help but laugh where Jasmine looked completely serious. Niall noticed this and stop laughing.

He cleared his throat. “Umm. Yeah… That is completely untrue. I love Jasmine. That’s all that matters.” Niall said as he glanced at her. Their chemistry was always something I liked. It was like they couldn't stand to be without each other.

"That's amazing." The interviewer stated. "I suppose all of you boys are happy with your girlfriends."

A few murmurs of 'yes' from the boys were made, except me. I just sat there, looking down at the ground, not saying a word. Things were only made worse for me when the interviewer turned to me and asked, "So Harry, there are rumors circling around that you're seeing Taylor Swift again? Would you like to confirm or deny?"

I attempted to let out a lighthearted laugh to offset my cheeks, which felt like they were getting red and hot. I felt everyone's eyes on me, including the boys'.


I took a long pause and and a deep breath, "Confirm."
