The Better Half

Roseline Bailey has been best friends with Harry and Jason Styles ever since they were born. Her eyes have been set on Harry ever since she can remember but now that he's back from tour this summer is going to change everything. Jason and Harry may be identical twin brothers but are different in so many ways, and she never thought she would have to choose between both. Which will she choose?


16. Second Guessing

Rose's POV

(that's Rose's mum btw)

Oh my god. What the hell is wrong with me? I really don't know what came over me, he was just so close, and he was so freaking hot. For some reason I just felt so special whenever I was around him and him saying that I was always going to be his number one made me wonder back to that day at school when my friends asked me why I didn't like Jason. Jason was perfect, but every perfect guy needs a perfect girl and I just wasn't that girl. He deserved better, I mean Ive basically been ignoring him just to get with Harry. Ugh Harry. I hadn't talked to him in a couple days and it partially annoyed me because Harry hadn't even text or called me. Did he even care about me the way I cared about him? All of this raced through my mind as I finally reached my car in the parking lot of the hospital. I pulled out my phone and froze as I looked in the reflection from the glass, my cheeks were tinted with pink and my lips were still tingling from the kiss with Jason.


God, that kiss was just….I had always been dreaming about what it would be like to kiss Harry and when I did it was mostly urgent and filled with lust, but the kiss with Jason was so sweet and loving. I shook my thoughts out of my head as I called my mom. She was definitely the person I talked to when I couldn't talk to Jason or Harry. "Hello hun!" she answered after the first ring. "Mommmmmm" I groaned into the phone with frustration. It was as if she already knew what was going on "Meet me at that ice cream parlor down the street from the house, we can talk" she said as I inwardly smiled. My mom was the best.


I closed my phone and pulled out of my space, feeling a little guilty because I had just kissed Jason and then left him there. I mean he doesn't even like me, shit what if I had just fucked up our relationship and made it weird. After about 15 minutes I spotted my moms car in the parking lot of the ice cream parlor and pulled in beside her. Shutting the door and locking the door, I stepped in, easily finding my mom sitting at our favorite table in the back of the parlor. I plopped down in my seat with a frown as she let out a light laugh. "I'm so confused mum" I mumbled as she motioned for someone to come over and take our order. "Nothing an oreo sundae can't fix" she said making me smile and nod in agreement. I was a sucker for cookies and cream ice cream. After ordering my mom focused back on me.


"Harry or Jason…" she mumbled as I widened my eyes at her. "Don't look so surprised Rose, I did raise you and I always knew there would come a time where you realized you loved them both" she said as my jaw dropped at her statement. "I don't love…I mean I can't love two people at the same time" I said as she shrugged. "Sure you can, but you can only be IN love with one person" she said as the waiter set down our sundaes and I thought about just shoving my face in it to drown myself from this stress. "I totally in love with Harry, I mean I always have been in love with him! He's the one I have always wanted. Jason has always been like a brother to me, he protects me and keeps me safe" I stated as I shoved a scoop of ice cream in my mouth. "But that has changed?" my mum suggested as I slightly nodded my head. "I mean before 5 minutes ago no, but for some weird reason I freaking kissed him. I had no idea where it came from. It was probably because that perfect freaking girl he's dating showed up being all gorgeous and perfect and-" "Perfect" my mum finished as I groaned. "Yea. It's like he totally deserves her ya know? But I was just mad and then I told him the truth that I would have to get used to sharing him with someone else, and then he said I would always be his number one…with this look, and it just happened" I said as I looked at my mom, she was smiling widely at me.


"Mum, whats wrong with your face?" I said cautiously as she laughed. "Hunny, that boy has been giving you 'That look' since you were toddlers" she said as I rolled my eyes. "Yea right" I said as she mimicked me rolling my eyes and shrugged. "I was determined this summer to win Harry over, and it's working I mean we basically had se-" I froze as my mom's content face contorted into one of anger. "You did WHAT?" she whisper shouted. "Oh come on its not like we actually did it, we just did some other stuff" I mumbled as she groaned. "Rose, you can't just be giving yourself away so easily. That boy has had girls in the palm of his hand, he's used to getting what he wants" she said seriously. "I know, I couldn't help it! He was finally giving me the attention that I wanted" I said munching on an oreo that was on the side of my bowl. "Trust me love, you don't want attention like that. You want a man to love you and respect you. Someone who will treat you like a princess and make you feel special everyday" she said reaching across and touching my hand.


"I know, but that's boring. You know I love a challenge" I said seriously as she nodded sadly "And that is what is going to get you hurt one day Rose. Look, I can't tell you who to choose but just know that you can't force someone to like you no matter how hard you try. This plan with making Harry fall for you is not like you, you should want a guy to like you for who you are. Not what you do to impress them. Follow your heart" she said as I smiled at her. "Thanks mum" I said softly with a blush, I mean shit I had basically just told her I had had sex with Harry and she didn't freak out.


We continued eating our ice cream with conversations about summer and what not until my phone began ringing. Jason. Did I want to answer? I continued to gaze at the phone until my mom told me to answer it and stop being a baby. I frowned as I pushed the answer button. "Rose?" he said into the phone as I sighed. "Hi Jason" I said feeling incredibly awkward. It was silent for a moment until he whispered something that I almost couldn't hear. "W-w=why did you runaway?" he asked. I thought about my answer for a second. I ran away because my whole life I have only wanted Harry, I had gone through so much work to get him to be interested in me and now I had him hooked at least a little bit. I didn't expect these feelings for Jason to just pop up and I didn't know if I was ready to give up on Harry. I mean I didn't even know if Jason liked me like that, probably not since he was dating Rebecca. Rebecca. "Because I was being stupid, you're basically dating Rebecca. I don't know what came over me but you like someone. I'm really sorry we can just forget about it" I said quickly feeling sick to the stomach, sure I may kind of like Jason…but Harry is the one I want. Once Harry becomes mine these little baby feelings for Jason will go away.
