20. Turn of Events

Char's POV
The next morning, bright and early, I was up and on my way to work. All the guys had called me multiple times, especially Harry and Louis, wondering if I was alright. I was. In fact I was better than alright. This gave me an opportunity to sort my own feelings. 
"Hey Dani." I smiled when I got into the school. I worked at a camp for kids who have parents that work. It was my service for the summer. 
"Hello Ms. I-hangout-with-famous-guys-and-don't-tell-my-friends." Dani frowned. 
"You know?" I asked, shocked. 
"Yeah. You're all over E! Right now. They're calling you One Direction's Mystery Girl." She rolled her eyes. 
"Huh... Well that's interesting."
"They have no photos of your face, but I knew it was you cuz of your shape, hair color, and you were wearing those awful high waisted shorts." 
"Hey I like those!" 
"Well I don't and I don't lie to my friends." 
"I never lied... I just failed to tell you." I defended. 
"Same thing." 
"I'm sorry! Really I am, how can I make it up to you?" I begged. 
"I'm not sure..."
"I'm not gonna talk with them for a while I don't think." 
"Why not?" She asked. 
"Cuz Louis and Harry were fighting over me."
"Wait... Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles were fighting... Over you... And you are fucking mad at them?" Dani yelled. 
"Dani! They're kids here!" I hissed. 
"I don't give a shit."
"Well, if you must know they we talking about me like a thing... You know not like I had a say of who I liked." I explained. 
"I thought you didn't like One Direction..." I realized. 
"I don't!" She giggled. I rolled my eyes and went to help with the little kids getting to their classes. 

"Char c'mon!" Dani tugged on my sleeve.
"Can't. I'm with the second graders." I said, turning the opposite way. 
"What? They're so presumptuous to separate us?" 
"Dani, it's for a few hours. Chill." 
We laughed and went separate ways to go help teach. 
Technically I was teaching, but really we were just drawing. 
"Do you like it?" A little girl asked me, holding up a picture. 
"I do! I love it." I nodded. 
"You can keep it." She smiled. I gave her a hug and folded it up then tucked it into my pocket. 
The other kids began to ask my opinion of their drawings as well and told me they were for their siblings or parents or friends. 
"Lunch time!" The head teacher called out. The kids ran to their cubbies and grabbed their lunch boxes, eager to trade with others and fill their hungry stomachs. 
I was busy helping kids peel back yogurt and apple sauce lids, gogurt tops, opening gatoraides and more when Dani's head popped in. 
"You can handle them?" I smirked looking at the kids with stains on their faces. 
"Yeah, I think I can manage." She told me, allowing me to go out to Dani. 
"Tada!" She grinned, holding up a pizza box and two diet cokes. 
"Thank The Lord. If I was to open another apple sauce my fingers would've fallen off." I laughed, taking a huge bite of pizza. 
"Ok sorry to push, but tell me everything!" Dani asked. 
So it started at Spencer's party when Harry and Niall came to the car after someone mentioned me. We really hit it off so I are dinner with them. My car broke down so they let me crash at their hotel then the next day they came to my soccer game and I got hurt so they came to the hospital... Umm oh! Then Harry took my out on a date and it was soo perfect. 
We went hiking for hours all the way over to the Hollywood sign! Then we toured Hollywood and then he took me to a fair! It was so much fun! After that he took me on a hot air balloon ride to a private beach. Then we went home and then out to dinner and back to their hotel where we played messy twister." I summed up. 
"You bitch. You promised you'd play messy twister with me first!" She gasped. 
"Whoa calm down." I laughed. 
"Ok so what was the fight about?" 
"Harry was like I saw her first so she's mine... And Louis was say shit like that." I shrugged sadly. 
"Who do you like." 
"Excuse me?" I almost choked on my coke. 
"I asked who you liked."
"What makes you think I like one of them?" I snorted. 
"Char. I've known you forever. You like one a bit more and your afraid to admit it." She nudged me. 
"Yeah. I do." I finally confessed. 
"Who is it?" Her eyes twinkled. 
"Probably it would b-" I was interrupted by a loud bang. 

It rang out clear and unmistakeable. Mine and Dani's eyes went huge. We hugged each other close then ran back into our classrooms. 
"What was that?" A boy, Billy I think, asked. 
A little girl was crying and a boy stood by her soothing her. I shushed the kids with the teacher and tried to make a game out of the situation. 
"Ok we're gonna play a game like hide and seek. Char is gonna hide you and you have to be as quiet as you can. Can you do that?" She whispered. The kids forgot about the clear bang only seconds ago and eagerly nodded. 
Not seeing any other option, I hustled them into a closet we use for coats. I smiled and hugged them tightly then closed the door and shoved a filing cabinet in front. 
"What do we do?" I asked nervously. 
"Are you positive that..." She trailed off. 
"I know a gun shot when I hear one." 
"In that case, we hide, wait, and pray." She hugged me. I hugged back and let out a choked sob. 
"I'm gonna stay out here... To direct whoever it is away from the kids." I said. 
"Ok." She whispered, only a year or two older than I was. 
"Go hide." I ushered her away. 
I sat at the table, not sure where else to go. 

I knew I had to tell him I loved him. I pulled out my phone and dialed his number. Voicemail. I tried again. Voicemail. And again. Voicemail.
I put my head in my arms and cried quietly. 

Then my phone rang. 
"Harry!" I sobbed, barely above a whisper.
