We Could Be Amazing

Harry and Nic have been friends since kindergarten, but when Harry moves to another city and ends up joining a singing contest, everything changes. Will they be able to keep their friendship amidst all the fame that is now in Harry's life?

Harry's Point of View

"Harry, love?" I could hear Anne screaming from downstairs.
"Yes, mummy dear?" 
"Nic is here! I just wanted to make sure you were fully dressed before she goes up."
"Oh...count to ten and you can head right up, Nicky!" I said, putting on a shirt. I just finished an intense game of Just Dance with Gemma, my older sister. 

I walked to the door and checked myself out in the mirror. 
"You fancy her." Gemma said, smiling at me. 
"Gemz! What the bloody hell are you talking about? Been her bestfriend since kindergarten." I said, shaking my head.
"You had geeky glasses back then, my love. You are one blooming flower right now. And if she was just your best friend, you would not be fixing yourself up like that." She said, laughing at how I was trying to fix my hair in front of the mirror.
"Well, I'm sorry that I want to look good. I am a teenage boy. I have to look good." I said winking at her.
"Whatever you say, Harry. I still think you fancy her." I heard footsteps coming up the stairs, so I changed the topic.
"Great dancing work out with you, Gemz! I'll see ya later." And with that, Nic went up the stairs.
"Hey, Harry! Hi, Gemma!" Nic waved. "I thought you said we were gonna go get some ice cream, Nicky?" I said, looking at her outfit. "We are...Aren't we?" She shrugged. "Why are you wearing a dress?" I asked her. She looked upset that I said that. 
"You don't like it?" She said, trying to tug at her cardigan. "No, you look great. Come on, let's go." I said, glancing at Gemma who was mouthing 'I told you so.' 


"So, how's Josh?" I asked as we walked towards the ice cream parlor.
"Josh? My science partner? Oookay, I guess?" She said, giving me a weird look.
"He seems like he fancies you. Can't keep his eyes off you when you're speaking." 
"Harry, any normal person should be looking at you while you're speaking. And besides, are you jealous?" She said, taunting me.
"Am not." He said, putting his arm around my shoulder. "He's not the one spending a great deal of time with you, is he?" He said, hitting my hip with his. "HA! I win, Josh!" He added, a bit loudly, causing people to look.
"Harry! You're embarrassing!" She said, hiding her face in my chest. 

Gemma was right. I was madly in love with my best friend, and I didn't care if I was starting to show it.
She deserved to know soon, before it's too late. She's beautiful, and if I don't tell her how I feel, someone else might. 


Nicolette's Point of View

"Can I treat you this time?" I said, handing Harry some money for the ice cream.
"No way. I'll pay, I'm the guy." Harry said, putting the money back in my pocket. 
"It doesn't always have to be like that, you know." I poked his side, causing him to give a faint laugh. 
"But love, I want it to be like that." He winked at me. I quickly hid my face to hide the redness of my cheeks. 
"Thanks, Harry." I smiled as he gave me my ice cream. "Here, some tissue. You got some on your chin!" I said, handing him a handful of tissue, laughing at how dirty he looked. "Where? Can you get it out for me?" He sheepishly smiled. I moved closer to him and wiped the ice cream off his chin. I looked up and saw that our lips were just about an inch apart. 
"You're the most beautiful girl in the world, Nic. You know that?" He said, his lips brushing mine. I blinked, and moved away. 
"First of all, no, I don't know that, Harry because that is a lie, and second, we should probably get going." I said. Did Harry just almost kiss me? And why did I move away? This is exactly what I've been wanting. Stupid me. 
"I'm not joking, Nic. You are the most beautiful girl in the world for me, and I'm gonna prove that to you. I really like you, Nic. There. I said it." He said, looking at me in the most sincere way possible. I bit my lip, "Are you pranking me?" I knew he wasn't.
"No, I mean everything." He said. 

We started walking home in silence, with Harry looking down at the floor most of the time. Before we got to my house, I faced him. "I really like you too, Harry. More than you'll ever know, probably." 
"Seriously?" He beamed. "Seriously." 
"YESSSSSSSS!!! WOOHOOOOOOOO!" He said, dancing around my lawn. 
"Harry! The whole neighborhood is going to wonder what is wrong with you!" 
"Lighten up, love! They're used to me and you know it! Does that mean you're mine, Nicky? Does it? Does it?" 
"Yes, Harry." I giggled, and he lifted me off my feet and spun me around.
"I love you! I love you, I love you, I love you." He said, kissing my forehead, then my cheeks, and then finally, my lips.
"Overly excited much, Harry? I love you too." I smiled at him.
