Still the One

Charlotte was like any other girl going to school, however she was classed as a 'nerd' which meant she wasn't exactly the most confident girl and she's only ever had one friend, Eleanor. She's perfectly content with just her one good friend and not being noticed in school until she gets to to know Harry Styles. Harry Styles - The Popular boy in school. Will Charlotte and Harry feel a connection between them when forced to do a project together?

6. "I had to lie..."

Harry's P.O.V


"Harry? Harry?" I heard my mum call as she entered the door at about 12:30am. 
"In here Mum," I replied to her from my bedroom, I’d been sat in my bedroom ever since I got back from the restaurant  I needed my own space to think, about everything, and by everything I mean Charlotte. Who was she with? I've never seen him before, why was he with her? It was all I could think about, them two together, sat there talking, laughing, connecting. Ugh, I don’t know what I'm talking about, I mean about a week ago I felt nothing for her and now she’s all I can think about. I get reminded of her constantly, I don’t know what to do, I thought we had something special together. Who even is he? He doesn't go to our school, so what was he doing with Charlotte? I got changed out of my shirt and black trousers which my mum made me wear to look appropriate for the occasion, and I got changed into my Ramone's pyjama top and just stayed in my boxer shorts.
"Why didn't you come to the restaurant?" My mum asked confused, I couldn't tell her the real reason I didn't go, I was still upset about what had happened, it just broke my heart. 
"Erm... I'm not feeling too good, I think I ate something bad..." I said to my mother as I looked at the ground. To be honest I'm not the best liar, I can’t lie to my family, it’s one of my faults, probably something with the boy Charlotte is fine with. The way they were just sat together, laughing, enjoying each other’s company just makes me so angry but upset. Wow, I miss her. I want her. I want her to be with me, I want her in my life. I want her as my own, not his. I just want Charlotte, but I doubt her becoming mine will happen any time soon. 
"Well you better be feeling better by tomorrow sweetie, your years presentation is tomorrow evening remember?" My mum said picking some of my worn clothes up off the floor, I looked around myself. Wow my room was in a bad state. I guess Charlotte had been on my mind so much I forgot what everything else around me was like, a complete mess.
"Okay, I'll be fine by the morning, see you tomorrow mum," I said as I climbed into my cold bed. I totally forgot about the presentation evening. It’s always boring, just sat for about an hour, going to get an award, then sitting back down for about another hour. Not fun. Sitting through all the sport, drama, art presentations. Unless Charlotte is going for art or something, oh I hope she is. We need to talk, get things sorted out. She needs to know how I feel , she needs to know that I'm serious about her, that it isn't a joke, that she means a lot more to me than she thinks. That I'm serious about her, about us.

Charlotte’s P.O.V

 

"Ugh my head," I said as I woke up, I had a terrible headache. 'I guess drinking coffee late at night with Finn wasn't the best idea' I thought as I snuggled back into my warm bed. Last night drinking coffee . I'd never met anyone like Finn, so handsome, yet so kind. Well if you don’t include Harry. I felt so guilty with Finn last night, I mean I know me and Harry aren't dating and the kiss wasn't even supposed to happen, but I just can't help but feel guilty. Harry gives me so many mixed emotions and messages. One minute he hates me, the next he's kissing me. I just don't know what to do or say any more. 
"Charlotte! Get dressed! You're going to be late for school!" My Nan said as she pulled my quilt off of me. I looked over at my clock on my beside table '7:45AM,' great only 15 minutes to get to school. I quickly jumped out of bed and ran over to my wardrobe and grabbed the first pair of jeans I saw. I quickly grabbed a top, hoodie, bra and pants and then I was off to get changed as fast as I could. I grabbed my school bag and ran out the door. Luckily school was only about a 5 minutes run away, so if I ran fast I knew I’d be able to get there on time. 
"Ah Charlotte! Just in time," My Form Tutor, Miss Jones, said as I ran into the classroom just in time for the bell. I almost missed it, and that would've ended up in a detention. 
"Sorry miss," I said as I went over to my seat next to Eleanor. As I walked over to Eleanor she didn't look to pleased to see me. 
"You okay El? What’s the matter? Has something happened?" I asked my best friend, concerned. She’s never normally like this at school, she’s usually her happy jolly self and today well she was the complete opposite. 
"I don’t know, maybe if you answered your phone you’d have an idea," She snapped, turning her back to me. Oh, that. I was supposed to ring Eleanor so we could discuss what we were going to use as an excuse to get away from her parents annual dinner party, which we both hated. 
"I'm so sorry Eleanor, I was just so busy last night and well it just slipped my mind," I pleaded to her.
"It won’t happen again I'm so sorry,"
"What were you doing last night then?" she asked me with a confronting look on her face. Oh no, I couldn't tell her that I’d been out with Finn. I've never lied to Eleanor before, but now I had no choice. I had to lie, I couldn't lose my best friend and only real friend. 
"I was doing homework for me and Harry’s history project, you know what boys are like, never want to do any work,” I couldn't look Eleanor in the eyes. I felt so bad for lying to her, and well for lying about Harry just then. The truth is he really does want to help with the project but I just feel so awkward around him after the kiss. I've not spoken to him since the kiss and how he tried to kiss me last night, and well it’s only Wednesday and we have art today, in 10 minutes. Oh god I don’t know what to do. I mean Harry really seems someone completely different to who he was, someone new, someone better. But we were still completely different, he's Mr Popular and well I'm me. But Finn, was so nice, so kind, but he’s still a stranger. All I know is that I don’t want to face Harry next period. I don’t know what I'm going to say to him, I don’t know how it’s not going to be awkward…
