25. Chapter Twenty-Five

Chapter 25

"I'll see you later, love" Harry pressed a gentle kiss to my lips as we stood on the doorstep in front of my house. Harry had to go somewhere so he took me home. I smiled into the kiss as I felt his strong arms pull me closer to his body, that sense of security running through me. "I'll pick you up at eight tomorrow morning" he hummed as he rested his forehead against mine. I nodded my head, reluctantly pulling myself out of his comforting arms. "Text me later" I called as he walked back down the path to his car giving me a little wave and a nod before getting in his car. I watched the black SUV disappear down the road before I pushed the door open. To my surprise, the delicious smell of chocolate chip cookies wafted from the kitchen to my nose.

"Mum" I called in confusion, my feet padding along the wooden floorboards, following my nose towards the yummy smell. I found her in the kitchen, sipping a glass of orange juice, a tray of freshly baked cookies sitting on a rack beside her. "Hey Honey" she placed her glass down on the bench, opening her arms out enticing me in for a hug. I practically ran into her open arms, I may have been pissed off at her, but I suddenly realised how badly I missed her. I mean she is my mum and being alone in a decent sized house for ages does get quite lonely.

"When did you get back?" I asked, deeply inhaling her strong perfume, whilst hugging her tightly. "I got home last night at about ten, to discover you weren't here" she answered, combing her fingers through my slightly knotty hair, I didn't have a hairbrush at Harry's so my hair was quite tangled. "I was at a friends place" I lied, not ready to tell her about Harry being my boyfriend. "I'm sorry I didn't call you, I accidentally put my iPhone through the wash on the first day" she apologised as she released me from her warm embrace. I let out a little giggle, that sounds like something mum would do. "Don't laugh at me" she playfully smacked me on the bum with a tea towel "You've had plenty of blonde moments yourself". "Yeah, but I never put my phone through the wash" I replied, giggling slightly remembering some of my stupid moments. A smirk appeared on her pink lips as she opens her mouth to speak "I recall a certain young lady accidentally dropping her laptop out the window though". I cringed remembering that moment, that wasn't even my fault.

"Enough with laughing at eachother, lets go sit down and have a catch up" she smiled at me warmly. I watched as she delicately took four cookies off the tray, sliding them onto a plate. "Okay" I agreed, following her out of the kitchen into the dining room. I pulled a chair out, sitting myself down on it as mum set the plate down on the table, sitting down opposite me, sweeping her blonde hair back over her shoulder as she did so. "So, have you made anymore friends" she asked as I pinched a delicious cookie off the plate. Mum might not be the best cook, but she can sure make amazing chocolate chip cookies. "Yeah, actually I have" I nodded my head as I took a bite. Mum gave me a big smile "That's great! I want to meet them"she exclaimed excitedly. I'm not really sure if I want them meeting my mum, she's a tad on the crazy side, sometimes I think she thinks she's still a teenager. "You should invite them round for dinner tomorrow night" her suggestion was more like a statement, I didn't really get a choice in this. I opened my mouth about to say no, but I thought twice, mums feelings get easily hurt and she's just trying to be a good mum.

"Okay" I nodded my head, I guess I'm going to have to try and get her to be normal. "Great, how many" she asked, I silently counted them off in my head, eleven, maybe I'll ask Tori and Ben if they want to come over too, it'll be less awkward for Harry since he's friends with them and I kind of want to get to know them more, so thirteen. "Thirteen plus me" I replied. Mums eyes widened a little bit, her face turning a shade paler "I guess this is a party then" she let out a nervous chuckle. I couldn't help but smirk a bit, she was probably thinking about five max.

"So, has anything happened between you and Harry" she changed the subject, wiggling her eyebrows at me cheekily. I contemplated telling her about what happened while she was gone, but decided not to, because she would somehow manage to squeeze the intimate moments we shared out of me. "No" I shook my head, my cheeks blushed red at her question. "That's a shame, he's such a lovely boy" she looked at me sternly "I hope your not still being rude to him". I shook my head "We've only been on three dates, it's just that nothing's really happened yet" I lied, she can not know yet. "So the boxers I found in your bathroom and the clothing that was piled at the end of your bed aren't his" she asks suspiciously. Oh shit! His clothes are all over my room, I never thought of cleaning them up, because I didn't think she'd be back. I thought quickly, racking my brains for a quick lie. "No! I just missed Jai and Mitchell last night, so I decided to wear their clothes, because it made me feel like they were with me" I spoke, quite proud of the lie I made up completely on the spot, silently thanking Mrs Grande for being an amazing drama teacher. "Oh, I'm sorry honey, you'll see them soon though, the holidays are in a couple of weeks and they can come stay with us then for a while and maybe you can go back up, I'm planning a little something for your eighteenth" she winked. I had forgotten my birthday, finally I'd be eighteen and legally eligible to do so many other things. Intrigued by the fact that she's planning something for my birthday, I couldn't help but ask "What". Mum's lips curled up into a grin, her eyelid dropping down in a wink "It's a surprise". I guess I'll just have to wait and find out.

"So how was your business trip?" I question taking another bite of my cookie. Mum let out a sigh "It was pretty good, I'm going to be working night shifts starting Wednesday though, I'm very behind with my work". I nodded my head, this wash the first time mums had to work at night, usually she ends up going on a business trip, stays three to long and forgets she's meant to be designing clothes and gets weeks behind schedule. "Okay" I nodded my head.

Mum and I talked for a while, she asked me a lot of stuff about school and how I was settling in. She tried to get the details of mine and Harry's 'Three dates' that I lied about, but I kept my lips sealed, sneaking out of the dining room when she went off to make dinner.

I collected by bag from the hallway, carrying it upstairs, before I left Harry'a place I put the bear I found yesterday in his bed. Digging around in the depth of my bag, I tugged out my wet bikini, tossing it in the laundry basket, before skipping upstairs to my bedroom. Where I collapsed on the bed, holding my phone between my fingers. Time to make some calls

I spent the next hour, calling all my new friends, inviting them over tomorrow night, all of them gave me an excited yes, which was pleasing. I only had two phone calls left, Tori and Harry. I decided to call Tori first. My fingers tapped across the screen dialling her number. The phone rang twice before she picked up.

"Hello"

"Hey it's Natalie" I greeted her

"Oh hey Natalie! How are things" She seemed really friendly.

"Really good" I replied, thinking about a certain curly haired boy.

"That's great, I saw Harry a while ago, he said you guys were together" I could hear the smirk in her voice.

"Umm, yeah" my cheeks were burning red, no one knew we were together, apart from Tori and probably Ben. Harry only told people he trusted about our relationship

"Harry had never been so Happy, it makes me smile seeing him like this, you must really be something" Tori explained. I'd come to realise that I wasn't really the only one that cared about Harry. Tori and Ben seemed to as well, but Harry probably never realised it.

"Umm, yeah" I said unsure of what to reply to "I was wondering if you and Ben maybe wanted to come over to my place after school tomorrow, my mum wants to meet my friends".

"I'd love too, I'll ask Ben later though he's out with Harry at the moment". I'll have to call Harry later tonight then.

"Okay, sweet. I guess I'll see you at a school" I replied smiling to myself, tori was really nice.

"Yup! See ya" she said goodbye, before hanging up.

I lay on my bed, thinking about how quickly my life had turned from normal to absolutely crazy in such a short period of time. This made me think about Jai and Mitchell, I hadn't talked to either of them in forever. I feel like such a bad friend, I promised I wouldn't lose contact with them.

I got up, tugging my laptop off my desk, I logged onto Skype, but neither of them were online, to my dismay. They probably think I'm to good for them now. Quickly I opened Facebook, relief washed over me when I saw they were both online. I clicked Jai's name first, pressing the video call button. I smiled when his face appeared, I was so worried for a second there that he might not answer. "Mitch! Get your arse in here" was the first thing that Jai. "Nat!!!" He exclaimed grinning. "Sorry I haven't talked to you for a while, I've been very busy" I apologised, twiddling a strand of my hair around my finger nervously. "Mitchell and I figured that, but it's okay" he gave me a smile, just as Mitchell entered the room. "Jai, what do you wa-NATALIE" He yelled, literally jumping on top of Jai, snatching the laptop from him. I couldn't help but laugh as the two boys wrestled over the laptop, until they finally settled it down on the bed with them sitting in the floor.

"You guys haven't changed at all" I laughed, I don't think they ever will, their always going to be my immature besties."You have"Mitchell gave me a smile. I don't understand how I've changed, I feel exactly the same. "How" I questioned . Jai and Mitchell looked at eachother "You seem older" the spoke in unison. "I'm younger the you faggots, I'm not even eighteen yet, how am I older dipshits" I exclaimed flustered as I flayed my arms above my head in exasperation. "I take that back, your still immature" Jai chuckled "You just seemed so solemn when I answered the call". I let out a sigh of relief, I'm glad I haven't changed. "I was just worried you guys would hate me or not answer, because I haven't talked to you in ages" I frowned a little bit. "Nope, we still love you" Mitchell grinned "you'll always be our slut". I cracked a smile "You guys will always be my dipshits" I laughed, sticking my pink tongue out at them very maturely.

We talked about recent events in our lives, Mitchell being chased by an evil goat called Billy was one of the interesting ones. "He tried to headbutt me in the balls" Mitchell exclaimed, making me almost die of laughter. "That goat likes no one but my dad" I sighed, remembering how Billy would always let dad pat him and feed him, whenever I tried to pat him though I was headbutted, my dad always had a way with animals, they loved him.

"So what are things like with that Harry guy" Jai changed the subject, noticing the quick change in mood after dad was brought up. I blushed slightly at the thought of Harry "umm, he's kind of my boyfriend". Mitchell and Jai looked at me like I was crazy. "Whoa whoa whoa hold up for a second" Mitchell put his hands up. "Your saying the guy that wanted to rape you is now your boyfriend?" He asked confused. "Yeah... um...yeah" I answered, blushing foolishly, when I first met Harry, if someone told me I would ever become his girlfriend, I'd probably start laughing thinking it was a joke. "You are fucked up in that head of yours" Jai tapped his head.

"Thanks guys, thanks your so supportive" my voice dripped with sarcasm, I guess they didn't know him though, so they wouldn't understand. "Sorry, but you said he wanted to Rape you" Mitchell put his hands above his head in surrender. "Yeah, I know. He's not actually like that, I was wrong" I sighed.

"NATALIE DINNERS UP" Mum yelled from down stairs before any of us could say another word. "I have to go boys, I'll talk to you later" I blew them a kiss before ending the call. I had a couple if notifications on Facebook, but I decided to check them later.

I ate dinner quickly, avoiding mums constant questioning of what I've been doing while she's away. Quickly escaping to my room once I had finished. My laptop was turned back on and I logged back into Facebook. I had three notifications and a friend request.

I opened the friend request first, discovering it was from Tori, quickly I clicked the accept button, before moving onto the notifications, the first was a poke from Mitchell, which I returned, the second was a picture posted by Amy which I had been tagged in. I clicked the image, laughing when I saw it. Louis and I were playing Mario cart, with determine looks on our faces.

'Was just going through some pictures when I found this' she had commented.i

At the same moment, my phone rang, making me almost jump out of my skin in fright. Stupid phone.

Collecting it from my bedside table, I looked to see who was calling.

Harry.

"Hey Harry" I answered the phone as I snuggled down into bed with my laptop on my legs and phone pressed to my ear.

"Hey baby" his husky voice came from the speaker making my heart flutter a little bit.

"I was actually going to call you in a while" I told him whilst logging into tumblr using my left hand.

"What about" he questioned, sounding kind of interested in the reason I was going to call him earlier.

"My mum came home" I let out a small sigh, scrolling page past page through tumblr, looking at all the pictures and gifs.

"Is that good or bad" he asked, obviously hearing the reluctance in my voice.

"A bit of both, I'm happy she's home, but she's invited my friends to dinner tomorrow night" I groaned, she's going to be an embarrassment.

"Oh that's why you were going to call me" Harry quickly out two and two together "I can't come tomorrow night, I'm sorry".

My smile turned into a slight frown, I really wanted him to come over. "It's okay" I spoke, whilst reblogging a picture.

"So what are you doing" Harry asked, breaking the little bit of awkward tension between the two of us.

"I'm in bed sitting on tumblr and talking to you" I answered.

"Can I join" he asked cheekily, I could almost hear the smirk In his voice.

"No" I blushed, glad that he couldn't see my face.

"Aww" he whined, jokingly "Im bored"

"Well since mums home it's to late for you to come over" I smirked, knowing that's exactly what he wanted to do.

"I guess I'll just have to settle with talking to you"

"Yup, you sure will"

"Who did you ask to go to your place tomorrow" he questioned

"My friends" I replied, not wanting to tell him that I had invited a bunch of guys and he wasn't going to be there.

"Those guys are going aye" his voice lowered, seemingly becoming darker.

"Yeah, their my friends" I sighed, already the overprotective side was coming out of Harry.

"I don't like them"

"You don't control who I can be friends with Harry" I hissed into the phone in annoyance.

"If I could, it would only be me" he growled back.

"I'm hanging up" I snapped, pressing the end button. He thinks he can control me, it's my life not his. My phone started ringing again and I was quick to decline Harry's second call. I ended up turning it off completely, unable to get any call from him now.

My attention returned to my laptop, tumblr becoming my distraction from Harry. The laptop screen soon became fuzzy, I was tired and I found myself falling asleep.

"Good morning" mum greeted me as I trudged tiredly down the stairs. "Morning" I mumbled a reply, heading straight for the restocked pantry. Choosing Coco pops for breakfast. "Harry called last night, when you were asleep" mum announced. I cringed as I tugged a bottle milk from the fridge, he'a so possessive. "He said he can come tonight now" I slammed the milk down on the counter, of course he can bloody well come now, he'll get out of whatever he's doing, just to make sure none of my friends try and make a move on me when I know they won't. "Wonderful" I put on a fake smile as I tipped milk into my bowlful of coco pops. "So do you want me to order pizza for dinner, I know you'll kill me if I cook" mum questioned kindly, I would have been more grateful if Harry hadn't decided to be a dick. "Yes" I nodded slumping down on a stool by the counter. "I'll drive you to school this morning sweetie" mum offered, making me smile, now I have an excuse not to go with Harry, I don't want to see him right now. "Thanks mum" I smiled through a mouthful of coco pops. "Your manors are appalling, Natalie" mum scolded, I'm at home just with mum I don't need to eat nicely. "Your almost a splitting image of your father" mum sighed, staring down at me sadly "You and I have never been much alike". Mum's always wished that I was a little more girly, she wanted me to be like her, but I took after dad, I never listen, I take a lot of risks, I've always loved the outdoors and farm animals, I was always a daddy's girl. Mum wished for a daughter she could pamper, dress up and spoil, but I hated all those things, I always wanted to be out playing football in the mud with the boys or horse riding.

"Sometimes I look at you and just see your father" a tear trickled down her cheek. My own eyes welled up with tears, my vision becoming a little misty. We sat in the kitchen for a couple of minutes whilst we silently brushed our tears away.

"Okay okay, breathe" mum closed her eyes, inhaling and exhaling deeply a couple of times. I did the same, calming myself down again. "Go get your gear and I'll take you to school" she smiled, returning to her usual calm composure. I nodded my head before jogging back up stairs and grabbing my phone and bag.

I turned my phone back on, knowing I would have several missed calls and a couple of messages. I was right, I had twenty two missed calls all from Harry and six messages which I ignored, typing in a new message.

 

To: Harry

Mum is taking me to school.

 

I thought I should just tell him that, so he wouldn't turn up at my house.

My phone buzzed again moments later.

 

From: Harry

I thought I was taking you xx

 

To: Harry

Things change.

 

From: Harry

Okay :( xx

 

I shoved my phone in my pocket, angry that Harry was texting me like he was hurt. I was angry at him for being so protective and possessive, it's irritating.

"Lets go mum" I smiled, walking back down the stairs into the kitchen. She grabbed her keys from the counter and headed down the hall, linking our elbows together. The two of us left the house, hopping into the warm confines of the car.

"Tomorrow evening I'm taking you shopping, before I have to work night shifts" mum announced as we drove down the road. "Can we not go shopping, I went the other day" I whined, I did like shopping, but I'd already been recently so I didn't need to go again. "Well I want to do something with you tomorrow night, we haven't done anything together in years" she sighed. It was true, I think the last time we did something together was when I was ten, she took me to the pool.

"We could stay home and watch movies" I suggested, feeling very in the mood for a movie night even if it was with my mum, it would be nice to have a bit of mother and daughter bonding time. "That sounds lovely" mum nodded her head.

We pulled up in front of school and I hopped out "Bye mum" I waved. "Have a good day sweetie" she smiled, before I closed the door turning to face the buzzing school grounds. The first person I spotted was the one I least wanted to see right now, he was leaning against his motorbike, a frown etched into his features as I glanced at him, before storming past without a second glance.

I walked straight into the corridor, towards my locker, where I found Niall eating a large cookie. "Hello" I greeted him as I put in my locker combination. "Hey Nat" he grinned as he chomped away on the cookie. I tugged the door open a little roughly, pulling out my running shoes and stuffing them into my bag. "Are you okay you look a bit flustered" Niall questioned, noticing my odd behaviour. "Harry's being an asshole" I muttered, slamming the door closed. "Oh, that's why he's not with you right now" Niall's lips formed an o shape as he realised. "Yeah, I'm avoiding him" I explained, as my eyes quickly darted around the hallway for any signs of the curly haired boy. "Want to go find the others" Niall asked, but I shook my head. "I'm just going to go to class, I'll see you at interval" I gave him a little hug, before slipping in and out of the gaps in the stream of people flooding through the corridors.

I managed to get into the classroom without being trampled, it was completely empty to my relief, so I took a seat at the back in the furthest corner. I dropped all my stuff onto the floor by the desk, slumping down in my chair, deciding I'd check those six messages Hardy had sent last night.

 

From: Harry

Natalie! Answer your phone! Xx

 

Nat! Xx

 

I know your angry at me xx

 

Would you just answer!?! Xx

 

I'm calling your home phone xx

 

I told your mum I'm coming 2moro, I hope you have a good night sleep

 

I let out a loud sigh, I'm not forgiving him until he apologises. At the same moment I put my phone away, Harry walked in the classroom. Uh oh, not good. I pretended I didn't notice him, praying the bell would ring and save me, I really didn't want to be alone with him.

I watched out of the corner of my eye as Harry sat down next to me. As soon as he sat down, I promptly stood, grabbing my bag and moving to the front of the classroom. Seconds later, Harry followed, sitting down beside me again. Can't he take a hint. I moved away for the second time, he copied my actions, sitting next to me again. Getting irritated, I stood up, getting my bag and marching over to the window where I stood staring through the glass at the field outside.

Hot breath ran down my neck, making me want to scream, I just want him to leave me alone. The moment his hands touched my waist, I spun around, swinging my bag, so it hit him in the side of the head "Fuck Off!!!" I yelled, watching as he stumbled back, disorientated, tripping over a chair and landing with a loud thud on his back. A yelp of pain escaped his pink lips.

I felt terrible, I hadn't meant to make him fall over the chair. He grimaced as he sat up, his left hand pressed to his back. I fought back the urge to rush to his side and kiss him better, but my pride got the better of me. The pained look on his face said it all, he was hurt, physically and mentally. I watched as he pulled himself into the closest seat, slouching forward over the desk.

I hate myself so much right now.

 

*

 

I spent the whole first lesson, sitting behind Harry, watching him rub his injured back every few minutes. Guilt was welling up inside me, bubbling further up my stomach every second. Unable to watch anymore, I pulled my phone out, typing a quick message under the table so the teacher wouldn't see.

 

To: Harry

Meet me outside the classroom at interval please xx

 

A couple of seconds past, before I heard Harry's phone buzz in his pocket. He slipped it out, eyes skimming over the words before stuffing his phone back in his pocket. I hope he would meet me.

Ten minutes later, the bell rung, Harry was one of the first to exit the classroom, not leaving me with much confidence. I collected my bag, slinging it over my shoulder as I made my way to the door. I was surprised when I saw Harry there, worried about him leaving, I quickly grabbed his hand, tugging him gently through the crowd towards the gymnasium.

I pushed the doors open, stepping into the empty gymnasium, with Harry's hand still clutched in mine. The first thing my eyes landed on was a big blue high jump mat, I led Harry over to the spongy mat, sitting him down on the edge of it. I jumped up on it, making Harry wince at the movement I created on his back. Softly, I sat down behind him, one leg on either side of his waist.

"Where does it hurt" I asked, softly kissing his earlobe. His arm came around his back, hand hovering over where it hurt "Here". My fingers hooked under the hem of his shirt, pulling it up over his head, revealing his back. The skin in his back was lightly bruised "I'm sorry" I apologised, as my thumb softly caressed the bruise. My other hand was on the front of his chest, my thumb brushing over his nipple lightly "I didn't mean to hurt you".

"It's okay" he spoke throatily, the affection being given to his chest seemed to send pleasure through his bod. "I'm sorry for last night, I shouldn't have said I didn't like your friends". His hands ran up and down the length of my thighs, giving me reassurance in being forgiven. "I forgive you, Harry" I pressed several soft kisses down his neck. "Natalie" he groaned, his head lolling back on my shoulder, soft curls tickling my cheeks. I removed my thumb from his nipple, laying him down gently on his back. He had a pleasured smile on his face, eyes still closed, while I retrieved his shirt, tossing it onto his chest.

"We better get to class" I kissed the tip of his nose
