Heart Skips A Beat

9th grade is when it all started. I thought that we were just going to be friends, but i guess not. My head says one thing, but my feelings for my best friend say another. Hes no ordinary guy, hes harry styles. I used to be the closest and only girl in his life, but now millions of girls around the world change that. And being in the same high school with him, makes it even worse. I thought that it would be easy, but its not. I want to tell him how i feel, but every time i see him my heart skips a beat.


11. Backstage


The concert ended, and I still had extreme goose bumps from watching the boys perform live! They were incredible and I thought that they were blessed with how much talent they had. I couldn't wait to get backstage and meet the rest of the crew and see the boys once again. We were directed to a gate where we would wait so that the boys could come and get us. We waited there for about five minutes and they finally arrived. I didn't know they had arrived until I felt a gentle tap on my shoulder. I turned around and it was niall.

"hey love! I hope you enjoyed the show!" he said with a wide grin on his face. I stared deeply into his eyes for a second and almost lost track of myself and where I was. They were piercing blue and I felt like I was melting inside them.

"oh that's an understatement! My ears are still ringing from the screaming, and that's mostly my own!" I said laughing. We laughed together for a second and he was about to say something else, but he was unexpectedly interrupted by the rest of the boys happily greeting me and Tiff. They all hugged me and after I shared a few words with Louis about the concert and about Tiffany, Harry hugged me from behind and spun me around.

"Hey you! I hope you enjoyed the show, did you!? oh please say you did, I would be so-" he tried to say but I shut him up by saying..

"Oh be quiet you! I had an amazing time and now I feel so proud that I get to say that I have a best friend that has more talent then I could have ever imagined. Harry, you were amazing, I am so proud of you babe! You knocked it dead, and I mean it!" I said and later gave him a tight hug.

He hugged me even tighter and whispered a cheeky 'thank you' in my ear and then released me from the hug. We stared at each other for a second before I was rudely interrupted by Tiffany.

"babe!" she said giving harry a kiss, while I looked away. While she was talking to harry I turned around and saw niall looking at me. I blushed a little and then saw Liam coming towards me. He greeted me with a warm smile and then started talking to me. We talked for about 10 minutes and I really enjoyed his company. He was so personable and down to earth. I knew that me and him would be great friends. He cracked a couple jokes and a few things and harry and we both laughed. He invited me to come to the set of their new music video that they would be shooting for their new song called 'best song ever' and of course, I accepted. He said that he would just have to talk to management and that there shouldn't be a problem.

"me and the boys would be so pleased if you could come demetra. It would make it even more fun and crazy than it would already be!" he said and laughed.

"haha thank you liam! I would love to come, but are you sure I wont be a bother. I would hate to impose and all." I said warily.

"not at all! Don't even worry, it would be an honour to have you. Maybe after that, we can all go for lunch or something?" he asked.

"sounds awesome!" I replied with a grin.

He told me that he was about to go to a party with his friends and that he would talk to me soon. He gave me his cell number and told me he would text me when the time was right and when the video would be shot. I thanked him and told him I would see him soon. As he walked away, niall walked up to me and said

"im really glad you enjoyed the show tonight, but maybe me and you can get together with less people around some time? Maybe just me and you?" he asked smiling at me. I was blushing like crazy. I think he could tell because his smile started to become larger as he took me hand, kissed the back. My face was probably so red at that second but I had to reply. I tried thinking of the right reply but nothing came to me. I was still mesmerized by his eyes and the fact that he was such a caring young gentleman.

"I would love to niall, thank you." I said smiling and then looked down to hide the fact that I was blushing like crazy at this point. Niall was so sweet and I didn't know if was he was implying was to go on a date, but either way, there was no way I was saying no. I looed up and he was blushing as well. We stared at each other for about a second, before he walked away not saying anything. I was sort of confused that he didn't tell me where he was going or what he was about to do, but my mind was pulled from that subject when I saw Louis jogging towards me.


 When he reached me, he pulled me into a short hug and then starting throwing all these questions at me about what had just happened between me and niall. I told him everything and he was more than pleased, as was I. He told me that he would convince niall to on a double date with myself, him. Louis and his girlfriend Eleanor. I loved the idea, and no complaints, so I told him that would be great. We talked for a minute about the concert and then my attention was diverted to a pretty blonde boy(niall) coming towards me and Louis. Louis excused himself, and gave me wink. I let out a slight chuckle and then me and niall were at it again.

"here's my number. I'll just ask harry for yours. I cant wait to see you again. Ill text you soon and we can plan that date." he said happily. He was about to give me a hug again when someone wrapped their arms around my back. I was shocked at first but then I recognized the feeling of curly hair tickling my neck and that lovely smell of alien cologne. It was harry. I smiled wide and turned around to engulf him in a hug as well. He looked at me and then back at niall, who was standing there in a very awkward position as me and harry were still in each others arms. His smile faded and we were all looking at each other for a moment when harry said "alright mate" with not much expression, but more of an unpleased tone in his voice while talking to niall.

Niall, looking quite like a guilty child replied, "yea, see you later love." he said walked away.

"bye niall, see you soon." I said feeling a little guilty. I hadn't even noticed that I was still wrapped tighly in harrys arms, before he let me loose. My feet were placed on the floor and I looked up to see that I was being stared at by a gorgeous green eyed boy. He didn't look to happy, so I asked him what was wrong.

"harry, whats wrong, you look mad?"

"what did niall say to you babe?"

"uhhh" I said trying to avoid the subject because I didn't want him to know quite yet. When I didn't reply, harry grabbed my arm tightly ordering me to answer by saying "demetra" in a harsh tone, actually hurting me.

"ow harry that hurts." I said with a mad tone which convinced him to let go.

"dede im sorry, I didn't mean to hurt you, I never want to hurt you." he said with a look of guilt and fear in his eyes. He looked like a lost puppy trying to find his way. I always loved that about harry. On the outside, he looked like a tuff male who could stand against anything, but on the inside, he was sweet and loving. He cared about everyone and knew that he needed others.. especially me.

"its okay, I know" I said giving him another hug and a small kiss on the cheek to reassure him that he was forgiven.

"thanks, anyway babe, what did he say to you, or ask you?" he asked once again.

"he actually, umm.." there was a pause before I responded.

"he actually asked me out on a date. He gave me his number and said that he would ask you for mine. Please give it to him for me." I said with a small smile. He showed no affection and muttered a 'why' under his breath not knowing that I heard it.

"why not?" I asked confused.

When he didn't respond, I knew he wasn't happy.

"harry, do you not want me to go on a date with niall?" I asked, staring at him intensely. He didn't respond for a second before he casually said

"well, niall doesn't exacly have the best reputation when it comes to women dede." At first, id dint believe his little remark at all and I brushed it aside. I thought he was making up excuses because this sounded nothing like niall to me at all.


"what are you talking about? I have never even heard of niall having a girlfriend." I replied.

"that's what you think. The media always misses niall's secret women. Trust me dede, its what it is." Harry said.

"harry, please just give him my number and ill be the judge of that okay?" I said.  He ddint look to happy with me but he knew he couldn't fight it. He knew I would win and that it was my choice and that he would have to wait.

"okay I will." he said trying to form a small smile, but failing.

I thanked him and then he offered me a ride home. I said yes and the car ride was actually a lot of fun. The typical harry and demetra thing. We talked, laughed and blasted music. We sang together and rolled down our windows to do those silly hand motion things. I really enjoyed it. It made me remember why I loved harry so much and how much I actually missed him while he was gone. When we arrived at my house, he opened the door for me and walked me to my front door.

"well, im glad you enjoyed yourself tonight dede." he said smiling.

"I did, a lot. And you my friend, were spectacular. Im proud of you babe." I said with a soft tone to my voice.

He let out a slight chuckle and looked to the floor, before looking up at me again and hugging me.

"thank you dede. I'll text you tomorrow and see you soon."

"alright, sounds good." I said before giving him a small kiss to the cheek and walking inside. I locked the door and heard his car drive away. As I walked upstairs to my room, I received at text from Mikayla.

"Hope you had an amazing and memorable night. I am gonna know all about it tomorrow when you come over to my house to tell me. No ifs, and's, or but's. Vic and Cass are coming too! Bring ice cream babe, sweet dreams. Xx"


I was really happy to have received this text because I needed some girl talk. Its going to be be a looong story, but I was willing to tell it.
