17. Graduation

 

Rose's POV

 

I couldn't explain the happiness I was feeling at the moment as I stood with my senior class at graduation. I was finally done with High School! Although I was standing with all of my friends I couldn't help but allow my eyes to wander to my left, all the way towards the end, where Jason was sitting. I had basically been avoiding him for the past week after the whole kissing incident and I felt horrible. But, I didn't know what else I could do. "Earth to Rose!" Jazmine said from beside me as I quickly spun my head to stare at her. "Huh?" I asked as she rolled her eyes and laughed, "What graduation party are you going to?" she repeated as I raked my brain of the tons of parties we were invited to. The biggest one was going to be Rebecca's. Her and Jason had been spending quite a bit of time together once he left the hospital and I felt a sense of betrayal. Like I was being replaced in some way. I hated seeing them together but I guess it helped that I was spending all of my time with Harry and his friends. I noticed everyone in our line stand up to go towards the stage to get our diplomas, my eyes easily spotted my mum and dad, Harry and Jason's parents, and Harry and his friends, surrounded by security. A blush crept onto my cheeks when Harry sent a wink and his killer smile my way.

 

"So Rose have you decided where you are going to school yet?" Luke asked me as we slowing began ascending each of the stairs. Jason and I had made a promise when we were younger that we would go to NYU. It had always been a dream but became a reality when we both got our acceptance letters. It was basically the happiest day of my life. Jason would be going for Fine arts and I would be Majoring in English and minoring in psychology. But, now things were different. If we were growing apart could I actually go there with him? What if Harry and I started dating and he wanted me to go on tour with him after the summer? Ugh, so many freaking things can happen over the summer. "I honestly have no idea" I mumbled as I realized I was next to be called onto the stage. "Rosaline  Marie Johnson" our principle said with a wide smile. Yea I would definitely not miss my creepy principle anymore. The whole class erupted, My family and friends were cheering and I couldnt help the laugh that escaped my mouth. I had to admit I was going to miss high school. It definitely had its ups and downs, but ultimately Ive made friends for life here. I dramatically and weirdly twirled around the stage because hey I can do what I want, and took my diploma. 

 

Once the graduation was over I ran full speed into my moms waiting arms. "We are so proud of you sweetie!" she said, tears springing into her eyes. "Oh my stop! Why are you crying!?" I said as she wiped them away. "Because now youre all grown up and going to college and youre gonna be all on your own!" she said sadly as my dad wrapped his arm around her. "Well I'm still gonna need you to make me nutella pancakes" I said with a smile as her eyes twinkled with happiness. "Lil Red!" I heard my favorite voice say as strong arms wrapped around my waist from behind. "Harold!" I shouted back as I turned in his arms. "You're finally finished. That means all responsibilities are out of the window tonight. No more homework or school or dumb teachers!" he said as I rolled my eyes and laughed. He leaned down and pressed a kiss to my lips which automatically made me swoon. Lately Harry and I had been kissing a lot, but I didn't know what we were. And I didn't want to be that annoying girl who asked if we were dating or not.

 

I was just happy I could finally say I accomplished my mission. But we still have the whole summer left and who knows what could happen. Anne soon walked up with Jason trailing behind her. Harry never dropped his arms away from me as Anne smiled at us. "Can you believe it! Jason and Rose are gonna be college students!" she said as she pulled me into a warm hug. The rest of the afternoon was a blur of people congratulating me, taking tons of pictures with me, and writing in year books. Usually I was eating this type of attention up. But, I was distracted. I couldn't stop thinking about the kiss with Jason. Why did it make me feel like that? I mean why did I even do it? Why every time I saw Rebecca make him smile it made me want to attack her. I couldn't understand my feelings, and I had always been so in tune with them. "Love are you okay?" a familiar irish voice said to me. I blinked my eyes realizing that we were standing outside of Harry and Jason's favorite Restaurant. At the moment I realized I was surrounded by boys, I mean they were all my friends but I needed a girl to talk to! "Yea, sorry just in my head. Give me a second I will be right in" I said motioning to my parents to go ahead and get the table. I pulled out my phone, scrolling through the contacts and landing on Danielle. 

 

Gosh I missed her so much, she was back in London working as a fashion blogger. She answered on the first ring. "Roseeeee! How are you my dear?" she said sweetly as I sighed into the phone. "I need some girl advice. Can we Skype later tonight?" I asked as she laughed. "I don't think there is a need. I will be seeing you in a couple days" she said in a voice that suggested I should already know that. "What? What do you mean? You're coming to America?" I asked in a surprised voice as she groan. "Oh shit! I suck! I thought they had already told you, aren't you at dinner?" she said disappointingly. "They are inside we just got here. What aren't you telling me Dani!" I said, trying to pry the information from her. "Sorry I will not spoil anything more! Gotta go! Love you, bye!" She said quickly and hung up. I couldn't get into the restaurant fast enough, finding my big group of family in friends seated in the back. I stormed up, hands on my hips, with a pout pressed to my lips. "When did you plan on telling me that Dani was coming to visit us?" I said to no one in particular, noticing that Harry and his mates all glared towards Liam. "What? I told her it was a secret!" Liam said with a laugh as the boys rolled their eyes. Jason looked confused as well, and even my parents seemed upset. "We were going to tell the two of you at the end of dinner, come on take a seat" my mom said as her and my dad got up out of their chairs, leaving only the spot beside Jason. Great.

 

I slowly slid into my seat, feeling some weird electricity between us as I crossed my legs and focus on whatever everyone was hiding from Jason and I. "Okay well we have a surprise for you too. Remember the lake house?" Anne said as I cocked my head to the sight in thought. "You mean the one we used to go to every summer when we were kids?" Jason asked as I glanced over at him. "Yup, that's the one. You kids had so many great memories there so we decided to let you stay at it for the month" my dad said with a proud smile as my mouth dropped. The lake house was probably one of my favorite places on earth. It dripped with memories of me and my two best friends. Harry and Jason. "Oh my god. Are you serious!?" I squealed as I leaned over and pulled my parents into a big hug. "Very serious. Of course we didn't want you there with just the boys so we had Louis and Liam invite their girlfriends. I know you are very fond of them. Also, Jason you can invite Rebecca if you'd like" my mom said to him with a smile as I sent her a glare. The lake house was where Jason and I had some of our best memories, I don't want him making any with HER. Shit, wait a second....I'd be spending a month with Harry...his bandmates...Jason...and his new girlfriend. This should be interesting.
