Remember Your Promise -Complete-

“Remember when you left without saying goodbye?” he asked.
“Yes” I replied sadly, remembering it like it was yesterday.
“Promise me you’ll never do it again.”
“I promise”

24. Memory

We turned the picture over…shocked

It was a picture of Harry and me in his backyard, holding each other. He was holding me by my waist while my hands were on his chest and my head leaning on his shoulder. I guess Gemma saw us and took a photo from their balcony. “Umm, didn’t expect to see…this” Harry said. “Yeah, me n-neither” I said, grabbing hold of the ring on my necklace and playing with it. “Do you remember this?” he asked, eyes still on the photo in his hand. “Yes, I do”. He looked at me and chuckled at my flushed expression. He shook his head and went back to looking at the picture.

*Flashback* (I had to)

“Hey” I said opening the door of my house to see Harry’s smiling face. “Hey, you ready to go?” “Yeah, let me just get my jacket.” It wasn’t all that cold but I decided to bring one anyway. It was September so I probably didn’t have to worry much. We stepped outside and started walking hand in hand. “You know you didn’t have to walk with me, your house is only five houses down.” I said. “I know but I didn’t want you walking alone, it’s almost dark.” My cheeks turned a splash of pink at his sudden concern. Harry and I have been ‘dating’ for about a year. I turned thirteen a few months ago and I was happy to have Harry be there with me. I wouldn’t call it ‘dating’ though. We say where boyfriend and girlfriend and occasionally share a kiss, but I don’t know what to call it. All I know is that Harry and I have been on four dates so far, and this is our fifth.

“Here we are” he said, opening the door for me so I could step into his house. His mom was at work and Gemma was here ‘watching’ us, which meant staying in her room and coming out if she hears a noise. He led me to his back yard. “Before we go outside, I want you to cover your eyes” he said, stopping me before I went any further. I sighed and covered my eyes, “Last time you did this, you asked me out. What’s going on?” He laughed at my curiosity. He led me to the back, “Alright, open them.” I saw Harry standing in front of me as I uncovered my eyes. Behind him was a white table with a single lit candle and a stereo. “Wow” I spoke softly to myself. There were lit torches all around his yard. It was a wonderful sight to see. Harry turned and pressed a button on the stereo. The music came on, it was ‘Hey there Delilah’ by the Plain White T’s. I loved this song. Harry smiled and held his hand out so I’d take it, and I did. He brought me close as the music was playing. I rest my hands on his shoulders and my head on one of them as well. His hands were around my waist as we swayed to the music.

The ending of the first verse started to play, it was my favorite part. It surprised me when Harry started to sing, “Hey there Delilah don't you worry about the distance I'm right there if you get lonely give this song another listen Close your eyes, listen to my voice it's my disguise I'm by your side.” He sung softly in my ear. He had a beautiful voice. I pulled my head off of his shoulder and looked at him with an amused expression on my face. He kissed me on the cheek before saying, “Happy one year, Karmen.” Wow, a whole year. I never really saw Harry as my boyfriend. More like a best friend that hung out with me, went on ‘dates’ with, kissed sometimes, and really liked. OK, he was my boyfriend.

I was too wrapped up in my thoughts to see Harry place a necklace around my neck. “What’s this?” I said, touching the ring that hung from the necklace. “It’s a…promise ring.” He answered. “Karmen,” he added, “It’s been great with you and I want to give you this because I really care about you.” I couldn’t stop the red tint from appearing on my cheeks. “I care about you too, Harry.” He smiled. “The promise is that we’ll… love each other, no matter what…Not grown up love but just…love” He stammered. He was nervous and it was very obvious. “I love it” I said, playing around with it. I looked up to see him looking at me and shyly smiling. With his hands still on my waist, he leaned in and kissed my lips, softly.

*End of Flashback*

“Anyways, I’m going to go downstairs and get a snack,” I said, breaking the slightly awkward silence,” care to join?” I asked. He nodded; we both went downstairs and ate some snacks.


Zayn’s POV:

When we got to the boys’ and mine’s house, I couldn’t help but feel slightly disappointed, and guilty. “I’m sorry about that” I mumbled, helping Aubrey out of her coat. “No really, it’s fine” she said, turning around to face me. I smile and take her up to my room, not forgetting to bring some snacks with us.


I decided to take a quick shower; I needed to clear my mind a bit. I left Aubrey in my room with my laptop so she wouldn’t get bored. When I got out I threw on a white shirt and some sweatpants and head back to my room. I open the door and see Aubrey sat at the edge of the bed with her head in her hands, sobbing. “Aubrey?” I say, walking towards her. No response, just sobs. I move the laptop that sat beside her. As I move it, I take a glimpse at the screen. She was on twitter. As I read her mentions, I felt sick.

You don’t deserve Zayn, you’re ugly

What does he see in you?

You are irrelevant!

She’s pretty

What is this!?

Ugh, that’s supposed to be me!

Some of them were nice but the bad outweighed the good. I close the computer. I sigh as I wrap my arm around Aubrey’s shoulder, allowing her to lean against my shoulder and cry. I kiss the top of her head, “Please don’t listen to them. They’re just being rude.” “They’re right, Zayn. I don’t deserve you” she said the last part softly. I took her face between my hands and looked her in the eyes. “If anything, I don’t deserve you. You’re an amazing person and I-I’ve never met anyone as different and incomparable as you.” I say before pressing my lips to hers. I pull away and wipe her tears with the pad of my thumbs. “Don’t ever forget that.” She seemed a bit restless. I picked her up bridal style (Kevin) and laid her on the bed. I lay next to her and pulled her to my chest. The paparazzi must have leaked the photos of our date. Damn that was fast. Like seriously, we just left the park 45 minutes ago. I love all of my fans but some of them can be very hateful, and that is what I don’t understand. We stayed there silently until she stopped sobbing. We decided to watch a couple movies on my laptop. By the time we finished them, it was dark and I had to take Aubrey home. I didn’t want her to go, I love her company. But the boys and I have an interview tomorrow and need to be up early. It’s gonna be a busy, busy Sunday.

A/N: That was probably one of my last flashbacks...unless you guys want more of them. I know the ending of the chapter is boring/stupid but...hey, i try.
