summer in the woods

Maggie, a 17 year old girl was planning on spending her summer in her house, by the lake and by herself. But things change when there was a big storm that brought her and Harry Styles together.


5. Thank you.

Harry's P.O.V

As i closed the door to the bathroom, i saw a couple of small candles placed around the room, giving it the light it needed so you could see what you were doing. I placed the clothes on the counter and pulled my wet clothes off. I hung them over the shower railing to let them dry. I swiftly grabbed the towel and dried my self of the cold rain drops that still lay on my body. After removing any trace of water i pulled on the pair of boxers and pants that laid on the counter, as i was buttoning the flannel shirt up i couldn't help but wonder, why she had a whole wardrobe for a guy that was around my same size? Does she have a boyfriend? Are these his clothes? I was confused and forced myself not to think about it.

As i walked into the living room i couldn't help but notice how beautiful she looked in the light of the fire that was shining on her face. I sat next to her and looked at her, she looked over at me, i was nervous and quickly turned to face the fire place.

  "So you will have you use my cell phone to call your parents. The electricity hasn't come back on yet. i heard her say, as she broke the silence.

 I saw her struggle a little bit as she was reaching for her phone in her pocket. She handed it to me and i quickly dialed in my mums cell phone number. On the third ring, i heard a familiar but tired voice on the phone.


"Hey mum." I saw that the gorgeous girl that was previously sitting next to me, stand up and walk into the kitchen.

 "Where are you?" i asked a bit frantic

"In bed" she replied, with confusion in her voice.

"No, mum i mean where are you?" i asked 

"In Holmes Chapel." she said.


"Honey, i tried calling you to tell you that your father and I have come back to the UK."she said, sounding more concerning then before.

I heard foot steps behind me and saw short tan legs appear at the other end of the coach. i looked up at her and smiled before continuing the conversation.

"When did you go back?" i asked

"A week ago."she replied, with the sound of guilt in her voice.

"What? You didn't stay for my last show?" i said, with the feeling of sadness erupting in my throat.

"I'm sorry baby." she responded with obvious sadness in her voice as well.

"Well, when are you coming back?" i asked.

"Well, sweetheart. We're not. You are going to have to have to stay there until we come back at the end of the summer."

"Mom, i lost the key to the house i have no where to stay." i replied with disbelief.

"I guess you will just have to room with a friend, sweetie." she responded with the motherly force.

"Ah, fine."i said

"I love you, Harry."

"I love you too,mum." i said as i pulled the phone away from my ear and pressed the big red 'end call' button on the phone. i sat there with my head in my hands thinking for a moment, gathering what i just heard. Did my mom really just tell me that she was at home right now in the UK? With out even thinking i blurted out.

"Ugh, i can't believe they would just leave me here. They left and didn't even tell me they were leaving."

"What happened?" she asked, in her hesitant voice.

"My parents, they left a week ago. They didn't tell me that  that they were going back to the UK for the summer. So, i'm stuck here." I replied

"I mean i don't have anywhere to stay. All i have is literally what i have in the bathroom and what you gave me." i said while looking up and smiling at her, but slowly losing it as i saw a tear fall from her cheek to her thigh. I cautiously placed my hand on her cold uncovered leg. She looked at me with sadness in her eyes, and quickly whipped the tear that had began forming under her eye away. She hopped up and walked over to the kitchen.

"Would you like something to drink?" she asked, as she made her way to the fridge.

"Do you have water?" i asked.

"Actually, I don't." she replied with a half smile.

I looked at her with amazement.Did she really not have water?

"Really?" I responded.

She erupted into laughter.

My thoughts turned from amazement into confusion. Her laugh was the cutest things i think i have ever heard. But why was she laughing?

"Of course i have water." she said, clearly trying to control her self.

I too started to laugh, just know realizing that my question was foolish. She turned around, i watched her walk over to the shelf and grab a glass. She was so petite, her legs where a perfect golden brown, her hair was a medium brown, It laid perfectly wavy on her back. I got up and went to sit on the stool that was placed in front of the island that separated the kitchen and the dining room. She placed the water down on the island and i grabbed, carefully bringing the cup to my lips. I finished it with one swig. I put he cup back on the island and sat there, no words, just sat there. I hated to ask her if i could stay but i needed some where to stay. I couldn't ask one of the boys. they were probably asleep by now, plus it would be around a five hour round trip ride if they were to come pick me up.

Before i even had time to talk my self out of it i spat out,

 "I'm really sorry to ask this, but is it okay if i stay here tonight? I will be gone first thing in the morning. I will sleep on the couch."

She looked at me with the most caring eyes.

"Of course you can stay here, and don't be ridiculous, you can stay in the spare bedroom. And in the morning stay for breakfast. We can sort everything else out then." she said,with a slight smile

"Are you sure?" I replied, not wanting to freak her out by just inviting my self to stay at her house.

She smiled and shook her head.

"Follow me, i'll show you your room."she said walking towards the stairs.

As we reached the stair way that was along side the wall that overlooked everything. Which was a very open floor plan, you could see the living room, dining room, kitchen, and a four season porch that was just off the living room and kitchen. I was in awe of all of the cool artwork that was all over the space. as i walked up the stairs there was an Indian rug hanging from the logs that were the walls. We reached the top of the stairs and it was a loft type area, which was also a place where you could see everything below. It opened up to two bedrooms and a bathroom. I was guided towards the room that was closest to the bathroom.

"You can stay here tonight." she said, pointing to the room that was right in front of me.

"Thank you so much." I said.

I grabbed her, pulling her into a tight hug. i couldn't help it, she was being so sweet, and not to mention she looked adorable standing there. 

"No problem." she responded.

"Goodnight Harry."she said

"Goodnight...." i began

"My name is Maggie" she smiled

"Goodnight Maggie" I smiled back.

I closed the door and heard her move down the stairs. moments later i heard a door close and the water start to run. i had made my way over to the bed. I sat down and felt a comfortable bed swarm around me like a great big hug. I had to drag my self off of the bed so I could walk  into the bath room, quickly there after found a new toothbrush in the closet that was next to the sink. i brushed my teeth and walked back into the room. Maggie. Her name was all i could think about, her smile, her laugh. I laid in bed, thinking about her, when i came to this thought. Why did she not scream when she saw who i was,or when i said my name? Shortly after that i wondered off into a deep sleep.
