My Partner for the Photography Project

Lauren has always been the girl sitting at the back of the class, and she likes it that way. Every year, her professor assigns the photography project, where you must room mate with your partner, and document their life in pictures, so it seems bad enough for her. But what will happen when her partner is Harry Styles?


12. Shhh It's a Secret


" Is this okay for clubbing?" i asked, twirling in a green lace dress, with a blue lining underneath.
" Wow! You look great!" Harry said, looking me up and down. " great dress!"
" thanks! I've never worn it before. It's a little bit out of my comfort zone."
" well it looks good. It suits you!"
" thanks. I'm kind of nervous for tonight. I've never done anything like this before."
" Don't worry! It's perfectly fine to let go sometimes! And if anything happens, I'll look after you."
Clearly he noticed my face was a little surprised.
" so surprised that I have feelings? Come on! We're friends now!"
My heart started to vibrate, I swear to god. I wonder if he knew I thought of him as more of a friend.
" friends, huh?" I said, trying to regain my composure. " We've gotten to that point?" I forced a laugh.
" Well after living together for two days, you could say that."
I laughed. Real, this time.
" when are we leaving?"
" how's 8?"
" perfect. Thirty minutes. Bet I could whip your ass in Uno!!"
" As if!!!"




We've been here for an hour now, and I would have never guessed how much fun this is!! We've been capturing the evening in pictures as usual for the project. The best music is playing, and everyone's dancing, including me and Harry, and there's the best drinks! I couldn't stop downing them!
" Oh I love this song!!" I cried, when Troublemaker by Olly Murs came on. I took Harry's hand, and dragged him to the dance floor, away from the bar, where I had just finished 2 beers.
He laughed, and followed me.
I stumbled over someone's shoe. Who would even put that there? Who took off their shoes? I love shoes theyre great.
We got to the dance floor, and we started dancing. My smile was plastered so wide over my face, and I lost myself in the music.
A waitress came by with cocktails, and I took one, and drank it in four gulps.
This is great!!
My vision started to get blurry, and I stopped dancing and leaned on Harry.
" woah this is so wierd." I said, feeling my words slurr.
" Lauren are you okay?" he asked, concerned. He had his arm around me, and was steadying me.
" what I am fine! I like it when your arms around me." I poke his arm, and burst into laughter. " they're so manly. Coz your a man." I started laughing again.
I had completely lost myself to alcohol.
" Maybe we should go home." he said, starting to lead me through the crowd.
" no!!" I yelled, stopping fast. " I want to dance to Taylor Swift!!"
" this is Avril Lavigne. Lauren, your drunk, you need to go home."
" fine. But only if you-" I tripped over my feet again, and Harry put his arms around me again.
" Guess what Lauren likes you shhh it's a secret." I said, whispering my slurred words.
" come on, Lauren."
I tried to talk again, but I didnt get the words out, before Harry caught my unconscious body in his arms.




I put Lauren's limp body on her bed in her room, took off her heels, and covered her up with her blanket.
I had taken her to the hospital, worried that something serious had happened to her, but they had said she was fine, and she'd just a have a severe hangover tomorrow.
I was so stupid to take her out. I shouldn't have, at all. She had had a fun time, but from the start had  too much to drink. It was a small amount for me, but it was clear that her body reacted more strongly to alcohol. I should've known better. I should've watched her more carefully.
I dragged my mattress into her room, away from the door, on the other side of her bed. I didn't want her to be frightened if I slept in her bed with her.
As I closed my eyes and went to sleep, after the whole night, even though she had been drunk, one phrase echoed in my mind.
" Lauren likes you, but it's a secret."
