18. Chapter 16

Harry's POV:

Louis, myself and a couple of the other boys are at the cinema tonight. To be honest, I'm not bothered- I'd rather have stayed home. There's only one thing on my mind.. Or should I say, only one girl on my mind. "Oioi, look who it is over there! And looking pretty fine that is" Stan smirks, nodding his head toward a familiar looking boy and a girl; who's hair cascades below her shoulders, her piercing blue eyes standing out with a beautiful smile spread across her face. Of course I know who it is, it's Jodie. "Oh shit. Uhm, just get me a large coke and popcorn Lou, I'm going toilet" I murmur, passing him my money and making a quick exit.

 

Louis' POV:

"Alright mate" Mark gives me a heads up as he approaches us. "Alright! Where's Jodie then? Thought I see her with you" I reply. How awkward is this.. You have Stan who liked Jodie then showed her up and was damn right nasty to her, Mark who's going on dates with her and then there's Harry.. Who I know does actually love her but he was a fool and let her go. "Yeah, she went to the toilet quickly".

 

Harry's POV:

"Harry is that you?" Jodie's sweet, familiar voice rings through my ears as I start walking away from the toilets. I turn to face her; gobsmacked at how stunning she is looking tonight. "Yeah its me, is that you?" I joke around, acting as though nothings wrong. "No, it's just some weirdo trying to make out she knows you" she gently slaps my arm and laughs. "So.. How've you been?" she asks. "Fine, you?" I reply. Fine?! I'm far from it, why did I just lie? Ah again. Why can't I just be honest with her? "Yeah alright. Well I guess I should go get in the queue again now, maybe see you in a bit". I nod and we go our separate ways.

Little did I know, Lou and the boys have decided to get seats with Jodie and that Mark. Ha, great.

 

Jodie's POV:

So Mark and Louis decided on sitting with all of us together. I wouldn't mind at all but it is kind of awkward when there's Harry sat on one side of me and Mark on my either.

Half way through the film and all I can say is I just want to hide and not watch anymore. I keep seeing Harry smirk out of the corner of my eye; he does it whenever I jump a little. Marks arm leans over my shoulders to try and give a little comfort. Then almost instantly Harry tenses up and secretly places his hand on mine; hiding it under the chair so no one else will see. Holding his hand isn't bad right? I mean, Mark's not my boyfriend.. I'm single so its fine, maybe?

 

Harry's POV:

"I can take you home instead of you both getting a taxi, makes sense since we live next to one another" I offer both Jodie and Mark a lift home. "You sure mate? You don't have to" Mark pipes up. "No it's fine, I'll drop you off first because obviously we live next to each other". Why I'm explaining myself to him I don't know.

"Doing much now we got 2 weeks off?" I ask, making small talk conversation. "Well not really. Just going out for my 18th, you?" How can I forget its her 18th?! Mines literally the end of this week coming so I should know. "Oh yeah, meant to ask you.. You coming town for mine next Friday and Saturday?" It doesn't take much persuasion for her to say yes either, which is good. Maybe we can start building on our friendship again. Because yes I may want her but if I can't have what I want then I'd rather us at least talk than nothing at all. Jodie smiles sweetly, "Oh Greg's back and is dying to see you. It's all he's gone on about", the smile soon fades to her rolling her eyes and shaking her head.

 

Jodie's POV:

Greg shoves past me; jolting out the door to see Harry and straight away mum and dad are pestering to speak to me. Great, what have I done?! "Jodie, come her darlin' me and your dad want to speak to you quickly". I carry myself to the kitchen, place my handbag on the counter side and take a seat on the stool. "We've been thinking and we don't want you to see Harry as in be with him at any point". WHAT?! I'm not saying it'd ever happen but seriously what's wrong with them, we grew up together and live next door for gods sake! "Um.. What? Why?!" I screech a little to high, not aware how high my tone had gone. Dad stands up with his coffee in one hand and his other pointing all over the place, "Because young lady, you have not been the same since you two broke up. We know you're different and we can't have him breaking your heart again". Thats just a pathetic excuse to be honest. "Yes that's right," mum stops him, "We've agreed that you can see him under either ours, your brothers or Anne/Gemma's supervision. So that means when we're there for dinner or they're round here, you can be the same as you are with him now but it goes no further. No going out together- no where and nothing. You're only allowed to see him if we're here or its family events ok?" They have got to be kidding me?? I roll my eyes, shake my head before giving them both a glare and start storming out to the lobby where Greg interrupts me, "So.. Did someone have a little date with Harry tonight?" My eyes squint with anger. Fair enough, he doesn't have a clue but it just doesn't help. "No" I sternly speak back whilst proceeding up stairs to my room.
