When Shelby is sick of her abusive boyfriend, she decides to leave. She gets closer to her 18 year old best friend, Harry Styles and he teaches her the way love should be and the way she should be treated. But when the boyfriend finds out that she's cheating on him...


4. Chapter 4






I lie awake, thinking about Shelby. Everytime I think of her stupid boyfriend and all the trouble he's given her I just want to punch a wall...or his face.

My phone buzzes and I fumble around trying to find it with my hand. My fingers grasp it and I look at the message.

Shelby- Hey, you awake?

I was just going to say thanks.

For everything.

Oh, btw, this is Shelby:)


I laugh and respond back-You sure you're ok?

Shelby-Yeah, I'm fine. I'm perfectly fine. :)

Me- Ok, love you.


WAIT, WHAT? NO! DON'T SEND! DON'T SEND! CRAP! I put my hands through my hair is frustration.


Me- Like a friend....


Oh, brother...Great save, right?


Shelby- Love you too. ;)


I put my phone back down and roll to the other side of the bed. My girlfriend used to fill that spot of the bed, until she ran off with some jerk to America. I don't care, though. I don't get why it's hard for me to talk to every girl...except for Shelby. I can talk to her about anything, but put me in a room with a bunch of chicks and I'm lost. I remember the first day I met Shelby like it was yesterday..




I was walking down the hallway at school when I first saw her. Her brown hair was tucked behind her ear and I could see that her lip was bleeding. I could tell she was about to cry at any moment. She dropped her books, so I went over and picked them up for her. She gave me a broken smile, but I could see her pain in her eyes. They glistened like wet pavement.

"I'm Harry." I said as I shifted my books to the other hand to shake her hand.

"Shel-" She started to say her name, but this big jerk came up behind her and grabbed her waist.

"Shelby, baby, who's this?" He said, but I could tell he wasn't being nice.

"Um, I don't know. I dropped my books and he picked them up." She looked at me, pleading me to go.

"Sorry, Tyler. Didn't mean to be nice to your girlfriend." I said sarcastically.

"Why don't you get away, Styles?"

I threw my books down. "Why don't you make me?" I was just egging him on. He knew I was stronger. "Guess I'll see you later, Shelby." I regetted saying that right away.

"What the f-" He started to say. Shelby stepped in.

"Tyler, just relax." She put her hand on his neck and kissed the jerk. "I'm right here, Ty." She smiled and he cooled down. I knew right away that Tyler had given her that bloody lip. And he was going to bloody pay for it, too.

Tyler took her by the waist and kissed her. I shifted on my feet, feeling awkward. She motioned me to go and gave me warm smile. I knodded, waved, and walked to my next class.



I had known from that moment that he was a good for nothing jerk. I didn't, and still don't know why she puts up with him. She could have a boyfriend that treated her like gold instead of crap. Yet she stayed with him. Maybe she was too afraid to leave him? I don't know...




Tyler comes in the dark room, and I could tell from the way he walked that he is drunk. I close my eyes, trying to decrease the chance of his hand across my face. He sits on the bed and sighs.  I can feel him move until he was underneath the blankets. He hasn't even changed into his pajamas, he just fall on the bed in his jeans and polo.

"Babe, move over." He grumbles. I move some, but in the wrong direction. "No!" He shouts and pulls me close to him. My body goes tense. "No need to be tense." He says in my ear. "I'll protect you." He laughs and falls asleep. I release a breath I didn't know I was holding. I relax my muscles and turn towards him. I can smell the mix of cigarettes and alchohol on his breath.

I put my head under his chin and try to sleep. I hear him stirring to the sound of my vibrating phone...it was on his table, not mine. He grabs the phone, still a little drunk and looks at the message.

"How lovely." He says. "Harry wants to know 'how you are doing,' and I want to know why he's got your number." He is starting to get angry.

"Uh," I try to think of something to say. "A friend put my number in his phone. Didn't know he texted."

"That's a bunch of crap. You were texting him." He goes into a sitting postion, but I stay still.

"I'm sorry, Babe. You can delete his number. I won't text him again." I cozy up to him. He seems to be thinking of what to do. He does the opposite, of course. Instead, he pops out the battery to the phone, makes a fist, and smashes it on the table. He unclenches his fist and puts his arm around my waist protectively.

"Problem solved." He says and then goes to sleep.




I pull on my shoes and a shirt and head out the door. I stop my truck outside of Shelby's house. I walk up to the door and try to see if it is unlocked...it is. I open the door and walk quietly up the stairs to Tyler's room. I've been here once before to play video games when Tyler was having a party.

The door is open some, so I open it some more and see Shelby. I go to her side and shake her lightly. She opens her eyes. Her eyebrows go into the confused angle and I motion her to follow. She motions me to go downstairs. I go outside of the door and watch. She kisses Tyler's head waking him up.

"What's wrong, Baby?" He puts his arm around her waist.

"Nothing. I'm going down to get a drink. Want one?" She brushes her hand on his buzzed hair.

"Nah, not now." She gives him one more kiss and gets up, approaching the door. I step back quietly and head down the stairs. "Baby?" I hear him say. We both freeze.

"Yeah?" She says sweetly.

"Want me to go down with you?"

"No, Ty, you sleep." She says sweetly and walks down the stairs, not trying to be quiet.


We quietly close the door and then bolt for my truck.

"Where are we going?" She says as she puts her seatbelt on. I put my hand on the steering wheel and look at her.

"I don't know yet." I say with a smile. She smiles and sits back in her seat. I turn up the music and turn down the drama.
