Do you Promise?

Alyssa is abused at home, bullied at school, and doesn't have many friends. One day she runs away from home and right into the arms of a blonde-haired, blue-eyed Irish boy. But what happens when others fall for her? And what about the past she left at home?


10. Confessions (#TeamHaryssa)

Harry's P.O.V:

I never in my life thought I'd say this, but Monday was finally here. I groggily climbed out of bed and threw on an old Jack Wills sweatshirt that's been in my dirty laundry pile for who knows how long. I washed my face and shaved, then made sure my hair was perfect for- no, she's not mine. Not yet, anyway.

I put on one of my lowest V-neck navy blue Hollister shirts and a pair of my new jeans with my white Keds. i nervously brushed my hair out for the 5th time. Today was the day. I put on some cologne and left my room. Liam's room was right beside mine, and I knew he wasn't awake yet, so I flew in and jumped on top of him.

"Hgghmf, gmf mmdf mmfgg!" He mumbled into his mattress. 

"What?" I asked him, "I couldn't hear you." He whipped his head off of the mattress and glared at me.

"I SAID, GET OFF OF ME!" He grabbed his pillow and whacked me until I got up, then collapsed back on his bed. "C'mon Li, we've got a lot to do today at school!" I half-dragged him out of bed, and even splashed his face with cold water. He sprung up and said, "I'm up, I'm up! Although I don't get why we have to go to school if we're the biggest boy band around." 

Yeah, he definitely wasn't a morning person. I left his room and knocked on Louis' door. 

"Come in."

I opened the door and saw that Lou was sitting on his freshly-made bed looking ready to go. Ugg, he was such an over achiever. Not saying anything, I turned around to leave when Louis grabbed my arm. I turned around, and he looked me straight in the eyes.

"Don't do it, Haz. You'll only get yourself hurt. Leave her alone."

He knew what I was going to say to Aly. Somehow, he knew. I got irritated. "You're not my mom, I can make my own decisions." Louis let go of my arm, shocked at my reply. To tell the truth, I was a little shocked, too. But I just shrugged it off and went downstairs to get a Poptart for breakfast. Climbing in my car, I drove to school, my anxiety building with each turn of the wheels.


Aly's P.O.V:

I woke up, and rubbed Niall's still-warm chest. "Ni, c'mon, wake up." His eyes opened, and a look of shock covered his face. "Aly, what time is it?" He asked apprehensively. I reached over to check the alarm clock. "9:02" With that, he flew out of bed, pulling me with him. He was ready in 10 minutes. I looked at him, confused. "What's wrong?" 

"Babe I forgot to tell you. Because of my distance from Ireland, my school gave me 12 hours to get back. That day started at 6:30 this morning."

I pouted, "Why do you have to leave Ni?" "I already told you, for school."  I sighed and realized that my school had started at 7:30. Crap. I flew around getting dressed, eating a Poptart, and pulling on my shoes. By this time it was 9:25. Great. I missed the first class of the day. I wanted to stay longer with Niall, but we both had to go. I wrapped my arms around his neck and buried my face in his neck. He picked me up and spun me around.

He pulled back a little and whispered into my ear, "Guess which superhero I am."

I started listing, "Iron Man." "No." "Batman." "Nope." "Spiderman." "No." I sighed, "I give up."

He smiled at me, kissed me while he was still holding me in the air and said, "I'm Yourman, and don't you ever forget that." I kissed him again, and it started pouring.

"Damn rain," he whispered. I giggled. It was so romantic. He put me down on my feet and leaned down. This kiss was the best yet. It was a goodbye kiss. I reached my hands up and grabbed the sides of his head, running my fingers through his hair. He held my waist, his strong hands cupping the small of my back, then going lower, and lower. I jumped up while we were still kissing and wrapped my legs around him. He held my back, and kissed harder. I gave in. I opened my mouth, and felt his tongue interlock with mine. I felt a shiver going down my back, and realized that it was him rubbing my back. That was the first time in my life that I had ever French kissed. It was amazing. We both came up for air, and at this point, realized  that we were soaking wet. I didn't care. I was the luckiest girl in the world. "Goodbye, Princess, I'll see you next week." He squeezed my hand and climbed into the limo that was waiting for him, girls already surrounding it.

Once I arrived at school, dripping, I quickly got my books out of my locker for second period. Racing to class, I bumped into Harry, who did a double take when he saw me. "Whoa, Aly, you look like you just ran through a hurricane." I laughed, he was so sweet and funny. "C'mere I got an extra hoodie in my locker." Thankfully, I took it and stood on my tiptoes to peck him on the cheek. "Thanks, Harry." Then I raced to class.

Harry's P.O.V:

Does she realize how much I've been struggling with my emotions for the past few days? Obviously not, because she leaned up and kissed my cheek. I just stood there, speechless. Maybe she likes me back but is afraid to tell Niall. Anyway, I'll tell her at lunch.

Classes flew by, and finally lunch was here. I grabbed my sub out of my locker and went and sat at the table I usually sit at. When Aly came through the lunch line with her tray, I patted the seat beside me. She smiled at me, and came over. We both ate, making small talk. I found out that her mom had died of cancer and her sister died in a car accident. She had a lot of past problems. I felt really sorry for her. I just wanted to wrap her in a hug and tell her that I would protect her. Well, now was a better time than ever to tell her.

"Aly, I have something to say. But first you must swear that you won't tell anyone, not even Niall."

She looked at me warily, then said, "I promise." 

I nervously brushed my hair, thinking of the best way to tell her. "Aly, ever since I saw you, I knew you were special. I wanted to be your best friend, and now that we are, I wanna be more."

She stared at me, shocked. "Harry, that's not right. I'm dating Niall." "I know, but just tell me how you feel about me." "I see you as a really good friend, maybe even a brother, but I don't feel that way for you. I'm sorry, Harry."

My feelings were crushed. It was my fault, though. I had set myself up for this. "Aly, I understand that you don't feel  this way about me, but I just need to tell you that as long as I'm around you, the feelings won't go away." She looked down at her empty tray. Then she looked up at me with tears in her eyes. She looked so helpless, so fragile. The next thing I knew, I was kissing her. On the lips. It was amazing. She was such a great kisser. Since this was probably my only kiss with her, I wanted to French kiss, but she wouldn't let me. She pulled away, taking her tray to dump it  and not looking at me the entire time. I felt like I had violated her somehow. Well obviously I feel bad because she still has a boyfriend, but I don't feel guilty that the kiss was great. I turned around in my chair and saw Louis just standing there, mouth in an "o", face angrily red.

Louis's P.O.V:

I can't believe it. Even after I warned him this morning, he still went ahead and told her. She was shocked, I could tell. Then, to make matters worse, he kissed her. Right in front of me, where I was planning to sit. He kissed her. KISSED her. He's an idiot. I saw the way she looked when he kissed her. She was shocked, and ashamed that he would do that.

'Harry Edward Styles, how DARE you kiss her!!!" I was furious. "Why did you do it?!? You know she's dating Niall. I hate to tell you the truth, but you'll never get her. Ever."

That made him angry. "Oh, yeah, and who do you think you are. You like her, too, I bet."

Okay, he just went too far. "No, I don't like her. She's practically my sister, and I feel like an older brother to her. That is NOT what you were just thinking."

He looked down at his half-eaten sub and calmed down a little. I placed my tray beside him, and decided I should calm down, too.

"Lou, I just can't help my feelings for her. I've tried to ignore them, but it doesn't work. I've tried to get angry at her, it doesn't work." He looked up at me, tears brimming. "What am I supposed to DO, Louis?"

I felt bad for him, his feelings being toyed with while she was still dating. "You find another girl, Haz. You need to get your mind off of her."

"No, Louis, I can't date someone while I love another. It would break the girl's heart. I can't deny that I love Aly. I'll just have to live with it."

Sighing, he got up as the lunch bell rang. I didn't know what to tell him. I hope he learned his lesson.

Niall's P.O.V:

I didn't realize how much I would miss Aly until I was in my hometown. Everything I saw reminded me of her. I wanted to go back so badly. I hope the boys are taking good care of her. I can't wait to get home this weekend and tell Aly the surprise that I found out yesterday. She'll be so excited. Louis told me he'd watch out for her and prevent anyone else from falling for her, which I laughed at. "Louis, she's pretty resistant. She'll tell them no." I chuckle at the memory, and finally made it to school.

Only five more days. I looked up at the sun, the same one that was shining down on Aly miles away. "Five more days, and you'll be in my arms again." Then, I pulled open the school door and felt a blast of cold air. Five days.
