"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?


54. Chapter 54

Jessicas POV.

"I um.." I was speechless.

Harry wrapped his arms around me and I layed my head on his shoulder.

"Get your hands off of her!" Louis screeched at Harry.

"She doesnt want my hands off of her." I could feel Harry smirking as he said the words.

"She. Is. My. Girlfriend." Louis said and I could tell he was about to punch Harry in the face.

"I dont want you hugging her."

"First of all, shes my cousin, I could hug her whenever I want! You dont know anything about her, ok? and you could deny it all you want but if you ask Jessica-"

"She'll say she loves me." Louis said.

By now Harrys hands were off of my waist but I pulled him back from Louis.

"Calm down ok?" I said.

"Come with me." Louis said pulling my hand.


"Shes my girlfriend, I could touch her." Louis said.

I wanted to tell them to stop but I couldnt speak. Louis tight grip on my wrists were beginning to hurt and I bit my lip. I just wanted to be with Harry. I shouldve never dated Louis. I just wanted Harrys comforting arms around me.

"Your hurting her!" Harry growled.

Louis still didnt loosen his grip on my wrists and it began to burn terribly. My eyes watered.

"Louis I am not kidding get off of her." Harry said.

Harry pulled me away from Louis and the force of Harry trying to pull me while Louis still gripped my wrists made me cry out in pain.

"Please just let go of me." I said, my voice barely audible. I think Harry heard because a second later he ripped Louis hands off of me and pulled me into his chest.My tears soaked up his shirt as he stroked my hair.

"She doesn't want you, Louis. Just leave." I could feel Harrys glare on Louis.

"I knew Jessica was the type to cheat." I coluld hear Louis say before he left.

"See! You dont know her! Shes not that type at all!" Harry called after him.

"Let me see your wrists, Jessica."

He was gentle when he slowly pulled my arm away from my body and pulled out his phone.

He used the light to examine what Louis did.

"Are you alright, baby?" He asked softly.

I nodded.

"Im sorry. I shouldnt of reacted like that."

"Its ok." I whispered.

"Does it hurt?" He asked pressing his index finger to the bruise that was starting to form over the others.

"A little."

"Im sorry, it was a bad spot."

I just nodded, Harry got up and held out his hand. I took it and he pulled me up.

"Its a bit late but, dinner?" He asked.

I smiled, "Sure."


It was midnight when Harry and I got home. We went to dinner and then a movie. I loved every second of it.

"Harry." I breathed. "I really need to talk to Lou."

He nodded, "I understand, careful ok?"

I smiled and pecked his cheek in response.

I knocked on Louis door.

"Come in." He called.

As soon as I walked in he turned his head away.

"I dont want to talk." He said.

"I do." I responded.

"Maybe we could talk about how good of a kisser Harry is, huh? Or maybe-" He snapped.

"Look Lou, Im sorry."

"For what? Lying to me? And then kissing Harry?"

"Im sorry I loved Harry for- since I was nine and I just-"

"You just had to take the oppurtunity, right?" He spat.

"Im sorry." I said confirming the answer was a yes.

"So you were just trying to forget Harry when you dated me? You  never even liked me?"

"Look Lou, I liked you so I thought I'd give our relationship a try. And I know why it didnt work out. Your my best friend, I know you probabaly dont consider me as your bestfriend but I consider you as one. And Im sorry, it was wrong what I did. I should've broken up with you before I went with Harry. I was just excited, I waited for Harry to ask me out for forever, and he finally did. Im sorry. I feel like your my older brother and I wouldnt want anyone else to be. Your one of the funniest people I know and you have that really caring side of you too. I hope you still want to be friends, I do, Im really sorry."

"Im sorry too I was really mean. I hope you forgive me and that we could still be friends."

I smiled and he wrapped his arms around me.

"You and Harry are perfect. Theres no relationship like yours. Your going  to get married, Im sure of it." I grinned.


"Now go to Harry, He loves you and Liam told me tonight that he was crushing on you for a few months now." He grinned and winked.

"He loves you."

I was about to leave when Louis called me back again, "Let me see your wrists, Jesse." He said seriously pulling at my hands. My breathe hitched in my throat and I immediatly pulled my hands back, "Im fine, goodnight." I said hastily running out the door. Nobody sees my wrists except Harry. Im even hesitant about showing Harry my wrists.

I rushed into the room I shared with Harry (until Lou and I dated) and he smiled.

"How was it?"

"Good." I breathed.

"Why are you out of breath?" He asked.

"No, nothing,  Im not."

"Jess." He warned.

"Im fine, Harry, stop worrying."

"Jess, what did he do to you?" He questioned sternly.

"Nothing, I promise."

He raised his eyebrows at me, "Im serious Jess, I'll go beat him up if you dont tell me."

I mean I love him, more than anything, but he could get overprotective sometimes.

"He just wanted to see my wrists." I mumbled. I could see Harry tense, and I put my hand on his shoulder, "Just to see if he hurt me, so I just got...scared for a minute."

He smiled, "Ok, lets go to sleep."

I walked towards my drawers pulling out a tank top.

Harrys arms wrapped around me from behind, "Nope! You could finally wear my clothes! Your not wearing your own!" He grinned and threw plain white t-shirt at me and some of his grey sweats.

"Thanks," I breathed before walking to the bathroom.

Harry smiled as soon as I walked out, "You look so cute in my clothes!" He grinned, pinching my cheeks.

I blushed and Harry laughed, "You blush so easily, Jess." He teased.

"Shut up." I giggled.

He smiled at me, "I like it when you blush, you look adorable, and I love when you giggle." He pretended to copy my giggle and I smacked him playfully across the chest.

"Hey Harry?"


"Louis said you were crushing on me for-"

He blushed, "A few months."

"Oh I was only crushing on you for a few years, y'know."

He perked up, "How long?"

"Since I was nine." I laughed.

"NINE?" He asked. "How did you even know what a crush was?"

"Cmon Harry! Everyone has crushes at nine."

"Why didnt you ever tell me?" He asked quietly.

"I was scared." I admitted softly.

"Why? You know I wouldnt of laughed or anything."

"I know, but I knew that our friendship would be awkward if i told you. And I really could not and  can nott afford losing you, I had nobody." I looked down at the floor, embarrassed.

Harry lifted my chin up  and held open his arms, he pulled me in for a tight hug, and I squeezed my eyes shut just allowing him to hold me.

"Come lets go to sleep." He said pulling me to the bed.

I cuddled into his chest and he kissed my forehead, "Goodnight, beautiful."
