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?

5. "Is she with another guy?"

Charlotte's P.O.V

 

Had that really just happened? Not again, no not me and Harry. Our lips, so close. No this can't be right I mean we're enemies, or we were I guess. I sat on the end of my bed, confused and mind wandering. I mean a few days ago we couldn't stand the sight of each other, and now, well we were locking lips. I felt so confused. I looked over to the clock on my little bedside table, '7:04pm' it read. I needed some space to think. I grabbed my trench coat out of my wardrobe and quickly put it on and grabbed my phone and purse from my desk. I needed to get out of my house, my parents were sat downstairs watching Lord Of The Rings or something like that on full volume. My house is usually silent, but now I actually need it to be quiet, it's impossible to think. As I walked out of my front door I felt the cold wind blow onto my face, normally I hate the cold wind, but today, it just made me feel more refreshed. I decided to go for a walk into the town centre, go grab a coffee by myself, get my head together. I took out my iPod from my coat pocket and began playing 'Let Her Go' by Passenger. The song was so soothing as I walked through the towns centre alone. I was walking down the main road when I stopped in front of a new shop 'Cafe 21' The sign read above it's door. It looked like quite a retro sorta' vintage shop, so I decided to go in, I thought that I'd be able to get some peace in there. As I walked into the shop I saw that there was only an old couple and a young woman who looked like she'd just finished work. Just the perfect place to think things through. As I walked over to the counter I saw a young woman behind it, she only looked as if she was in her late 20's. I gave her my order and went over to a table and sat down as I waited for my coffee. I sat with my head in my hands, not knowing what to do. I mean last week me and Harry hated each other, and now we're kissing.    

 

"I'm so confused," I said with tears welling in my eyes. I didn't want to feel this way. I could feel my body becoming more attracted to Harry when I was near him. But no, I can't feel like that about him, we're too different for anything to happen. Tears were now running down my cheeks, I didn't want to feel the way that I did about Harry but I just couldn't stop it.  

 

"A regular mocha-latte for you madam," A voice said over my head.

 

"Oh.. Sorry, thank you," I said lifting my head up to see a young guy stood in front of me. He only seemed about 17, my age. I quickly wiped my eyes as I didn't need anyone else judging me before even knowing my name.

  

"Oh, are you alright?" He said sitting in the chair next to me. 
"I'm fine," I said looking down at the table. I didn't want to lift my head up, I didn't want this guy to see me crying.
    "You're obviously not, here come let me get you some cake, on the house, you look like you could do with some cheering up. I'm Finn by the way," He said walking over to the cake counter, the cafe was now empty, with me and Finn being the only people in there. 
"Wow, that's really kind of you, thank you. I'm Charlotte," I said looking at him as he walked back over to the table I was sat at with 2 pieces of lemon cake in his hands. I'd not actually had a proper look at him yet, but wow. He looked like a guy most girls dream about, with his dark brown quiff which complimented his rich brown eyes so well. He looked like someone; most girls would stare at on Tumblr for hours.    "So what brings you here in tears then? If it's personal or you don't want to say that's fine, I just don't like seeing such a beautiful girl cry," He said smiling as he handed me a piece of lemon cake and a fork. 
  "Just school things like that I guess," I said taking a sip of my Latte. Finn was so adorable, but the last thing I wanted to be thinking about was boys after the whole Harry thing. Finn and I both sat for what seemed like no time at all talking to each other, talking to him was surprisingly easy. We both seemed to have so many things in common believe it or not. Before either of us knew it, it was already 9pm.
  "I better get going, my parents will be wondering where I am," I said standing up and putting my coat on. I could see the disappointment in his eyes after I'd said that, really? Him disappointed? To most people they would consider Finn as possibly one of the hottest people ever, but me well I wasn't looking for anyone. I mean, me and Harry, ugh, we have quite a lot in common, but he's just so different to me in so many other ways, he's Mr Popular and well I'm just me. 
  "Oh, of course. I'd love to be able to see you again Charlotte," Finn said looking into my eyes, wow his eyes glistened.
"I'd like that too," I said pushing my hair behind my ear. I was unsure whether I really wanted to see him again, I mean I was still in shock and debating what was happening between me and Harry. We both exchanged numbers and soon he shut the shop and we were both stood outside in the cold. 
  "Do you want a lift home? It's freezing out here and there can't be a beautiful girl like you walking around alone at this time of night," He was such a gentleman. 
  "I'd love one thank you," I said tightening the belt on my coat, he was right, it was freezing! He took my hand and lead me round to the car park behind the cafe. He lead me up to a black Audi. He took me round to the passenger seat side of the car and helped me in. He was so polite and kind. Wait what am I saying, I like Harry, wait no I don't, I don't like anyone. Ugh I'm so confused. As me and Finn sat in the car, he turned on the radio. 'Grade 8' by Ed Sheeran was playing. 
  "I love this song," Finn said turning it up. 
  "Me too," I said looking at him as he drove slowly down the streets. The drive normally only takes about 5 minutes, so we were at my house before either of us knew it. As he pulled up along my drive, I looked at my watch '9:47PM' Oh no, my parents will be so worried about where I am,' I thought to myself as he came over to my side of his car and opened the door for me. 
  "Thanks again for the lift," I said folding my arms, I was so cold. I looked into his deep brown eyes, they really shone in this light. 
  "It's fine, I'd love to meet up with you again sometime, would it be okay if I got your number?" He asked pushing some of my blonde hair back behind my ear. I looked at him hoping for some sort of bond as we exchanged numbers. Just before we were about to say goodbye, I was hoping for some sort of connection between us. But I couldn't feel anything, nothing like I'd experienced with Harry. After saying goodbye to Finn I went upstairs to my bedroom. Luckily my parents were still watching their film so they hadn't noticed I'd left. As I snuggled up into my bed I cried, I was so confused on what to do, what to say. I pulled out my phone to check the time, surprised at what I saw. 16 Missed calls and 12 texts from Harry, could this be a good thing?
  Harry's P.O.V
  "Friday, hmm so long away," I said to myself as I walked back to my house. It was only a few streets away but it felt like I was walking forever. She pulled back, she obviously isn't interested. I walked along, thinking, wondering what was going through her mind. I thought we had a connection, a bond, something special. I'd never had a connection like that with anyone else before. She was special. I mean I've hated her for most of my life, and now, well I can't get her off my mind. I never realised how much we had in common. As I approached my house I could see that no lights were on. 'Everyone must be out at that new restaurant opening' I thought to myself as I stood staring at my lifeless house. I decided to go at least join the party, anything to cheer myself up. Charlotte, well I assume she doesn't want anything to do with me. The way she pulled back, I mean most girls at my school would normally be straight in if I did anything like that to them. But Charlotte. Charlotte's different. As I walked up the street to the town centre I could see the restaurant in the distance, it only looked like a 2 minute walk. As I was walking along I gazed into shop windows as I walked past. I glanced past River Island, a few charity shops, the local post office, until I saw something that made me stop and freeze. Charlotte. Sat having coffee with another boy. They were chatting, laughing, looking like they were having a great time. I couldn't just stand and watch her like that with another boy could I? I was about to walk through the door until I realised something. If I was to go in what would that look like? Like I was following her around, not the best image. I knew I'd have to restrain myself from going in. I decided to give her a quick text, just to see if she'd ignore me for him. I pulled out my iPhone and tapped on the keyboard 'Hey Charlotte, I was wondering, can you meet me at the Topley's Restaurant in about 5 minutes? I need to talk to you.' Send. I watched her with him, she didn't even flinch. I decided to just go ahead and call her, what was the worst thing that could happen? 'Glad we exchanged numbers in history for the project now' I thought to myself as I waited for her to pick up. No answer, I peered threw the window to see just that boy sat there. Charlotte must've gone to the toilet or something, her coat and phone were still on the table. I watched the boy, decline my call to her, acting as if nobody had rang when she re-entered the room. I decided to just head over to the restaurant. She was probably having a great time with that guy she was sat with. As I got into the restaurant I saw it was full of mostly 30-50 year olds, so I just decided to go home. I needed some space to think to figure out what was going on between me and Charlotte...
