"Hiding your feelings for someone only makes you fall harder for them."
Jessica was happy. That is until the fifth grade, everyone turned their backs on her, her best friend moved away, and she began to get bullied. She had no true friends for comfort, no kind mother for advice, no loving siblings for fun and games. She is alone. Stuck with a crush on her cousin a year and a half older than her. She knows it is wrong, but she cant help her feelings. When a certain contest rises in these families, what happens when shes no longer alone? When Harry discovers her darkest secrets? Will he keep his promises? Will she forgive him?

Jessicas P.O.V.

Harry and I hang out all the time. Hes really the only one I have, and even if hes just hanging out with me for the contest, at least I have someone. He doesnt know about the bullies or the self harm, he doesnt know that much about me in any way really, but I feel really close to him. Im actually happy he doesnt know too much about me because then he'll probably judge me, and leave me. I go to his house and we chill together at least three times a week. The other days I'm usually at gymnastics practicing bars or my floor routine. In just a week we are having a gymnastics meet where everyone gets to see what you were practicing. Harry promised me he'll come, and I'm not sure if that just makes me more nervous or more excited.

Harrys P.O.V.

Jessica is so amazing! I feel a weird sort of connection with her, not like a love one but like a friendship. I know it sounds crazy, friends are usually the same age. But like who cares I mean my friends look at me, and smirk teasingly, but I really dont give a sh*t, they dont know her. Shes really cool and talented and I know we jjust met, but I feel like we are definitely going to be good friends.And we'll definitely win the contest because were together all the time, we're inseperable, literally.  I hear Jess knock on my door , so I yell a quick come in and the door opens. She looks really pretty today. White skinny jeans hug her legs  I ran to go get the door, she looked great she was wearing white skinny jeans and a see through blue shirt witha white tank top under.

"Hey Jess, whats up?" I said as I hug her.

Jessicas P.O.V.

When Harry called me Jess, I smiled instantly. It reminded me of Jake, he claimed that nickname a long time ago. I know Jess is the normal nickname for Jessica, but for some reason everyone desides to give me the more complicated ones, except for Jake of course.

"No offence or anything, Jess, but your'e just staring into space siling like an idiot, uh why?" Harry asked, laughing slightly.

"Oh," I laughed and looked back at him, "I was just remembering how Jake used to call me that."

"Your brother?"

"Yeah," I smiled.

"Well, now Im your brother too." He laughed but turned serious.

I smiled.

"Im not kidding, though. Consider me as your older brother?" He offered, smiling slightly.

I already do.

I decided to respond with a simple 'yeah', but Harry inturrupted.

"You do?"

Only I have to say my thoughts outloud.


He pulled me in for a hug and I didnt want it to end. I snuggled into his chest and breathed in his comforting scent.

"Woah, you alright there?"

I pull away blushing and turn away.

"Are you okay?" He asked.

"Yeah, why?"

"You seem, you seem a little down lately."

Well its only because they've really been bullying me and I cant handle it.

"I'm fine," I lied.

"Your'e lying." He detected.

"No, Im not." I argued, there would beno good reason for Harry to find out I get bullied.

"Okay," he held his hands up in defense, "but if you ever need to talk, Im always here, y'know." He smiled.

"Thanks," I smiled back at him.

I dont think he realized that I just might take him up on his offer.
