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.


9. Well i kind of need some clothes.

Maggie's P.O.V

I woke to the smell of bacon. The clock read 8:30 a.m as i slipped out of bed, slowly making my way to the bathroom. I decided to hop in the shower before joining Harry in the kitchen, i smelt like lake and i know if i didn't do it now i wouldn't have time to do it later. I washed my hair and shaved my legs, before shutting the water off and grabbing a towel, that i had set aside for my self before getting in the shower. I dried off and pulled some dark jean shorts and a black v-neck t shirt, showing off my tan that i had gotten yesterday. I pulled my hair into a lose french braid, and decided to put my black rimmed glasses on instead of wearing my contacts. I brushed my teeth and was ready to eat some breakfast.

As i entered the kitchen i saw a very happy looking Harry, sitting on a stool at the island, eating some bacon and toast.

"Good Morning!" I said while grabbing a cup out of the cabinet and filling it with coffee that had already been made, assuming it was Harry that was so gracious in doing so.

"Good Morning!" He replied with a ever growing smile on his face.

As i approached the island i saw two pieces of toast and a couple pieces of bacon on a plate. I looked at him  with a questioning look on my face and he nodded,

"I thought maybe since you mad me breakfast yesterday i would make you some this morning. I know it's nothing like what you made me-.." I cut him off 

"No, it's perfect. Thank you." i smiled and took a seat next to him.

"So, do you have anything planned for the day?" I asked him

"Well that's what i was going to ask you. I was wondering if you could bring me into town. I would like to get some gas for my car, a phone charger, and maybe some clothes. I would rather not wear the same two outfits for the next couple months." He smiled and laughed

"Yeah that would be fine. I need to get some stuff at the store anyway. I think i have a gas can down in the boat house if you would like to use it. I don't think my dad..." I trailed off. I felt a tear start forming in the corner of my eye. Last time i thought about my dad in that way,that made me cry, was when Harry was talking about his mom the first night he was here. I quickly stood up and put my dish and cup in the dish washer. "I'll go grab that gas can, and then we can go." i say, not really waiting for a reply but saw a soft nod from Harry before i reached the door to the deck.


The ride was quite for the most part. I had the radio playing in the background. Once and a while i could see Harry looking at me in the corner of my eye. We were stopped at a stop light and a new song come on the radio, it played for a couple seconds before Harry quickly changed the station, i was about to say something about his abrupt action, but i was cut to the chase.

"So, how did you sleep last night?" Harry asked.

"Ummm... fine?" i answered him not really sure what was going on. He looked re-leaved when i didn't question him about the radio. 

"Oh, that's good." He replied and looked out the window.

"Okay?..." i mumbled to myself. They rest of the ride was silent and completely awkward.

We pulled into the small strip mall that was built about two years ago. There was an American Eagle, Champs, Dicks Sporting Goods, a payless, JcPenny, and of course a Victoria Secret. I parked the car and got out of the car. Harry and i started walking towards the mall when he quickly pulled his hood over his head and put some ray bans on. I laughed at his appearance, but continued on. We reached the main entrance and went straight into The American Eagle. 

"Hey, i'm gonna go over here. Come and get me when you're ready?" i asked as i started off towards the girls section.

"Sure." i heard him softly reply.

It had been about twenty minutes before when Harry found me. He had about twenty shirts, seven or eight pairs of shorts, and some swim trunks. While i had found some cute tops, a swim suite and some jean shorts.

"Are you ready to go?" I asked.

"Yup." he nodded. We were in line and he turned to me and asked if i would go and grab him some sun glasses. I nodded and placed my things on the counter not really wanting to carry them around the store with me. I quickly walked over to the stand that had different kinds of aviators. I had no idea what kind of sun glasses he wanted, so i just picked one and walked back to the counter. Once there, Harry was gone and so were my things.

"Umm.. where are my things ma'am?" I asked a lady that was maybe a couple years older then me, but my parents always told me to have manners and respect people older then me.

"Oh, That very kind man over there paid for your items." she said with a smile, while pointing to Harry.I looked at him and he was smiling like he had just won the lottery while twirling his ray bans in his hand.

I mentally face palmed. How could have i forgot that he had sunglasses on, he tricked me. With that i walked over to him and jokingly punched his arm.

"Hey, that's no way to treat someone who just paid for your clothes." he joked while we walked out of the store.

"I didn't ask you to." i said

"I know, but i wanted to. Something to say' thank you for letting me stay with you'. and you better get used to it. I like to show my "Minnesota Nice" side." He said with the cheekiest smile.

"We're in Wisconsin." i simply relied

"I'm from England what do you expect." He laughed. I just rolled my eyes and mouthed 'thank you' and he just nodded with a smile.

Harry had convinced me to let him go into Champs, while i went to get a pretzel. I was sitting in the lounge area waiting for Harry when i heard soft music playing, and heard a song that i remembered hearing the night before, when i was walking down to the lake. At first i didn't recognize it because it sounded recorded and there were other people singing, but it hit me when i familiar voice came on. It was Harry!

"Shot me out of the sky 
You're my kryptonite 
You keep making me weak 
Yeah, frozen and can't breathe 

Some things gotta give now 
Cause I'm dying just to make you see 
That I need you here with me now 
Cause you've got that one thing 

So get out, get out, get out of my head 
And fall into my arms instead 
I don't, I don't, don't know what it is 
But I need that one thing 
And you've got that one thing..."

I remember watching the news the other day and seeing Harry's picture showing up on the screen, saying that he was in a band called 'New Direction'? No,no,no i think it was 'One Direction'. Last night i knew it had to be true, because man could that guy sing. But why wouldn't he tell me he was in a band? Scratch that. A world famous band? I was cut from my thought as i saw Harry emerge from the store. I hadn't noticed that the song had ended and 'Single Ladies' was playing. He walked over to me with two more bags of clothes in hand.

"Are you ready to go?" He asked

"I thought you would ever ask." i said with a smile and a wink.

"Alright lets go." He said

We reached the car and pulled out of the parking lot and into the grocery store. Harry and i walked into the almost abandoned store and walked through the isles. I grabbed everything that we needed for the next week and went straight for the check out line. I paid for the groceries and Harry helped me put them into the trunk of the car. Before heading back to the cabin, we stopped at the gas station. Harry filled the gas tank up and walked inside to pay the bill, and to purchase a cellphone charger.

When we got back home Harry helped me unload the groceries and put them away. While putting everything away Harry stopped in his tracks and turned around slowly. 

"What are these?" he asked with a concerned look on his face.

"Roman Noodles?.." i answered him "Have you ever had them?"

"No." he answered with a smile on his face.

"Do you want that for dinner?" i asked with amusement in my voice.


"Alright. You can go in the four season porch if you want while i make it."

He nodded and walked into the room and turned the T.V on. I could hear it while i boiled a pot of water and placed the noodles into the water. I put a timer on for six minutes and walked over to the fridge and got some milk for something to drink and grabbed some crackers to have with the Ramon Noodles.

"What do you want to drink?" i yelled, so he could hear me over the T.V.

"Whatever your'e having." he yelled back


"Yeah, that's fine. Thanks" 

By that time the noodles were done, and i drained some of the water from the pot and added the seasoning. It looked. i gave Harry more then half of the pot and put the rest in a bowl for me. I walked into the room and gave Harry his bowl and he looked down into the bowl terrified. "It's good Harry!"

He looked at me with a half smile and took his fork and twirled the noodles around the prongs. He took a deep breath and put it in his mouth. He chewed and then swallowed. He looked up at me and his expression changed and he smiled and stuffed his face. Not even coming up for air. I sat there in amazement as i watched a man turn to an animal in a matter of seconds. 

We both finished our food while watching Duck Dynasty. After i finished i walked into the kitchen and cleaned the dishes and put everything away. I walked back into the four season porch and cleared my throat getting Harry's attention.

"I'm gonna go to bed. Will you make sure to put your dish away and turn the T.V off?" i asked

"Of course. Thank you for bring to the store today."

"No problem. We can bring the gas can to your car tomorrow." i suggested. He nodded and smiled

"Good Night Maggie"

"Good Night Harry"

Harry's P.O.V

After watching another two episodes of Duck Dynasty i clicked the T.V off. I went to the dish washer and put my bowl away. I turned the lights off that were still on in the kitchen and went up the stairs to my room. I stripped but left my boxers on just in case. I walked into the bathroom and brushed my teeth, and after i made my way back into my room. I grabbed the charger out of the bag that i had gotten from the convenient store. I plugged my phone in and didn't bother to check it. I will check it in the morning. I crawled into bed, covering myself with the sheets. I laid there thinking about the day, about Maggie and how she was really sweet, not to mention really really beautiful. I am so glad i met her two nights ago, and with that I fell asleep thinking of her.
