Safehouse- A Harry Styles fanfiction

Bo Grace Ellis was your average teenager. Hanging out with friends, complaining about homework and school. But that all changed when she woke up on a deserted street surrounded with flesh eating creatures. She was lost and confused, until a tall, dark curly haired boy named Harry Styles saved her.

Deep down Bo knew she had feelings for this boy. But did he feel the same? Of course not. A tall blonde girl named Taylor swift might have something to do with that.

Will Bo find her family? Will her and Harry get a chance at love? But most of all, would they make it out of this apocalypse alive?

23. Chapter 23

 

 

 

Tears spilled in my eyes and my hands started shaking. My heart pounded and my stomach clenched. I wanted to scream but I couldn't. My voice box wouldn't allow it and I would wake up Harry. What would he think of it? We couldn't have a baby now, not here. Then the thought suddenly hit me, we were going to be parents. I wanted to be a mum one day, but not at this age. And especially not in a zombie apocalypse. Harry would have another mouth to feed, and he didn't need that. How was I suppose to tell him?

Billions of thoughts rushed through my head and hot tears rushed down my cheeks. I held all 3 tests in my hands and stared at them with fear. I put them in the bin next to me and hid it behind the toilet. 

I pulled myself together and washed my face. The cool water relaxed me as it dripped off my chin. I walked downstairs and slid back into bed again, trying to get whatever sleep I could.


*Harry's POV*


I woke up with a cold feeling on my feet. I lifted myself up from the bed and realised that my feet were sticking out of the end of the blanket. I shuffled back up higher into the bed and looked over at Bo, she was curled up on the edge of the bed clutching her pillow in her arms. It looked like she'd been crying. I wrapped one of my arms around her and pulled her towards me. She must've been in a really deep sleep because she didn't wake up for anything. I kissed her on the cheek and huddled up with her and inhaled her scent. I loved her smell, it was always comforting. I cuddled up closer to her and closed my eyes again and fell asleep.


*Bo's POV* 


I woke up feeling surprisingly hot. I felt a hot breath blow on the back of my neck which made my hairs raise on my skin. I turned over slightly and saw Harry fast asleep next to me. His arms were wrapped around my stomach and his legs were entangled with mine. I turned over as slowly as I could, careful not to wake the sleeping beauty next to me. I looked at Harry and smiled. His curls stuck out at every angle and they spread out on his pillow. His eyes were closed and his mouth was slightly open, letting the air escape his mouth as he breathed. My nose rubbed against his as his eyes fluttered open. The instant he saw me looking at him he smiled and kissed my nose.

"Morning beautiful."

I blushed and tucked some hair behind my ear. 

"Morning handsome."

Harry smiled and hugged me tighter. I hugged him back and then suddenly the horrible reminders of last night kicked in. I pulled away from Harry quickly and clutched my stomach in pain. I squeezed my eyes shut and gritted my teeth. Harry got up and sat next to me panicked.

"Babe what's wrong?" He asked.

I didn't reply, all I could do was clutch my stomach and moan in agony. I couldn't tell him I was pregnant, I didn't know how to. And it would mean that he was right to make me take a test, and I hated being in the wrong.

"Bo, are you ok?" He repeated.

I looked up at him as he combed his fingers softly in my hair. I grabbed his free hand with one of mine and squeezed it tightly. It had no effect on him though since I wasn't very strong. I sucked in air through my teeth until the immense pain left my stomach. I sighed of relief when it left and I sat up with Harry in the bed.

"Listen Bo, I really think you should take a test." Harry stated.

"Why? Girls don't get cramps when their pregnant, do they?" I bit back.

"Well, my health teacher told us boys you's did when I was in school." He replied nervously.

"Did you actually listen to the teacher in sex ed? I thought all guys just made jokes and didn't take it seriously." I asked.

"Well yeah, the rest of the guys just joked and laughed about it but I didn't want to get a girl pregnant and not know anything about it." He replied shrugging his shoulders. 

I cooed at his cuteness and weariness of girls as he sighed and shook his head in embarrassment. After a few minutes of laughing and teasing I soon changed the subject back to the tests.

"Why do you want me to take a test so much?" I asked.

Harry shrugged once more and looked down.

"I just want to make sure that isn't what's wrong, we aren't ready for a child and now isn't the right time to have one." 

"What makes you think that?" I asked.

"Why? Do you want a baby?" He asked.

"No, I just want to know why you don't want one." I stated shaking my head whilst making a face. 

Harry sighed and answered my question.

"Well to begin, we are in a zombie apocalypse. We have trouble feeding ourselves and if we add another person to that it makes it harder. We need things like nappies and medical treatment if they get a cold or something. They need injections for different kinds of diseases and they grow older too and no one wants a kid to have to grow up in an environment as dangerous as this. And baby's cry a lot so if the baby wakes up in the middle of the night and bursts into tears that will alert walkers and then we have a huge problem on our hands. Plus your only 18 so your too young."

I looked at him amazedly. All those thoughts came into his head in just those few seconds? I opened my mouth to say something, but no words came out.

"Why? Did you want a baby?" He asked.

I quickly shook my head and frowned.

"No, I completely agree with you. I was just curious." I protested. 

Harry frowned and rubbed his forehead. He sighed and got off the bed into the kitchen.

"What are you doing?" I asked as he left the room.

"Getting the tests." He called back.

My eyes widened. I remembered I left the box opened and just threw it carelessly into the medicine cabinet. If he saw that it was opened and some were missing he would know that I took them; and then I would have to tell him the truth. I ran into the kitchen after him and stood in front of him, blocking his way to the cupboard.

"You don't need to do that, I know I'm not pregnant so there's nothing else to it." I said panicked." 

"Bo, you need to take them. I don't care whether you don't want to." He said, trying to walk around me.

I kelt blocking his way as he argued with me to move. I wasn't going to let him into that cupboard. I couldn't let him know yet.

"Bo would you just move already!" He yelled.

I stood my ground, determined to get my way. For a moment I thought I succeeded. Harry turned around and sighed. My muscles relaxed a little as I took a silent breath. But within seconds I was lifted from the floor and hauled over Harry's shoulder. 

"Dammit Harry put me down!" I shouted, pounding my hands down on his back and kicking my legs.

Harry ignored me and dropped me down on the bed before running back into the kitchen. I jumped up and sprinted after him, but it was too late. Harry had his hands in the high cupboard, scrambling around looking for the box. I raised my eyebrows in disbelief when Harry said that they weren't there.

"Where'd you put it Bo? They're not in there." He called out.

I signed of relief, maybe I hadn't put them in there. Or he was just bad at finding them. I walked over to him and looked in there myself. I realised that they were up in the very back corner under a packet of plasters. I kept my discovery quiet and pretended I couldn't see them.

"I can't find them either, maybe you lost them." I lied.

Harry shrugged and searched the rest of the kitchen. According to him they were nowhere to be seen, but I knew the truth. Harry walked out of the room muttering something to himself and went upstairs. I sighed and lazily walked over to the bed. I was suddenly exhausted after all the arguing. My head ached and my stomach felt sore. I squeezed my eyes closed and sucked in air in pain. I flopped down on the soft mattress and put one of my hands on my stomach and the other on my forehead. I closed my eyes and took deep breaths. I felt like I was going to be sick again. I held my breath and tried to keep whatever was in my stomach down. I really didn't want to be sick now. 

My strategy to keep me well was working. I calmed my stomach and felt slightly better again. I laid motionless on the bed, too tired to do anything. I couldn't hear Harry upstairs but I had a feeling he would be playing guitar. I took a deep breath and slowly lifted myself from the bed and lazily walked upstairs. I knew that I would have to tell him the truth, and that I should do it now and just get it over and done with. 


*Harry's POV*


I sat on the bed in the boys room with the guitar on my lap. I strummed the chords and put my fingers on the frets, playing different tunes to different songs. I hummed the lyrics to myself until I felt a presence in the room with me. I looked up and saw Bo standing in the doorway. My face lit up as I saw her and gestured for her to come over to me with my hand. She slowly sat down and had a nervous look on her face. She looked so guilty of something and she was going a certain shade of white. I gave her a confused look and softly strummed the guitar again. I soon stopped after recognising by Bo's body language that she didn't really feel like hearing music. 

"Babe what's wrong? You usually like it when I play the guitar for you." I asked puzzled.

Bo looked down and tried to speak but no words came. Before she could say anything I interrupted her.

"Sorry hang on a sec, I gotta pee." I said, putting down the guitar and getting off the bed.

Bo nodded silently as I left the room. Then I suddenly heard her jump up after me and grab me by the shoulder. I ignored her and quickly went into the toilet closing the door. I was literally about to wet myself.

"Hang on I won't be a second!" I called out from behind the wooden barrier. 

"Harry no, you can't go in there!" She yelled, banging her fists on the door.

I stood in the middle of the bathroom confused and looked around. What didn't she want me seeing that was in here? I looked in the cupboards and under the bathroom mat, when a small cylinder behind the toilet caught my eye.

I walked over to it and saw 3 sticks in there. I knew without a doubt what they were. I picked them up and looked at them.

"Positive..." I said to myself.

I read the pregnancy tests over and over again. Bo was pregnant? My mouth dropped and I had a sudden feeling of guilt. I'd gotten Bo pregnant. It was her first time but I still managed to get her pregnant. Bo continued to bang on the door but I couldn't hear her. Time stood still as I read the result of those 3 tests. All of them were the same, positive.

I opened the bathroom door and Bo stumbled in. She looked around and then to my hand. Her face went completely white and she looked at me frightened. I looked at her with disbelief. Bo looked down at her feet and played with her fingers nervously. We stayed quiet for a long time, trying to figure out what to say.

"How long have you known?" I asked.

"Since last night." She said quietly.

I frowned and glanced from her, to the tests.

"When did you take them?"

"Last night, you were asleep." She replied.

I sighed and walked closer to her. To my surprise she backed away nervously. I tilted my head slightly, why was she frightened of me?

"Bo are you okay?" I asked.

All she did in reply was shake her head and cower away some more.

"Bo, what's wrong?" 

"A-all those things you said, about all the bad things about having a baby..." She trailed off.

I looked at her full of guilt. I'd said all those bad things about having kids and not even realised that we'd have to go through all of that. I felt so terrible, I'd probably scared her with all that and not even realised it. 

"No I'm sorry, I didn't mean it. I take all of that back I'm sorry."

"No Harry dont be sorry because its true, you and I both know we're not ready for this." Bo cut me off.

I looked at her defeated, I didn't know what to say.

"Bo it's okay, we're gonna get through this I promise." I said.

"But what if we don't Harry? Girls die from childbirth. And we have a pretty big chance of that since we don't have a doctor. Harry I'm so scared." Bo cried.

I walked over to her and wrapped my arms around her. Bo cried into my shoulder whilst I ran my fingers through her hair. 

"I'm sorry Bo, it's all my fault." I whispered.

"No it's not." She replied.

"Yes it is, if you haven't noticed I'm the one with the penis here." I said.

Bo breathlessly laughed and nuzzled her head into my shoulder some more. I smiled above her and rested my chin on her head.

"We're gonna be okay babe, I promise." I said.
