9. I tell myself that I'll be strong.

 

{ANNA’s POV}

 

I opened my eyes just to shut them quickly. It was too bright outside so I decide to fall back to sleep. Sometimes I get too lazy to even move. As I felt the sleep slowly drifting me in it, a thought suddenly came in my mind and I jolted up on the bed. I looked at the clock; it read 2:00 in the noon. Shit!! I slept for about half a day. I quickly got out of the bed and searched for my phone.

 

Where in the hell did I keep it? I thought as I searched my entire apartment. I suddenly stopped dead on my tracks and turned around to look myself at the mirror. I was not wearing my night suit instead I was still in the clothes that I had worn yesterday. That’s when it hit me and yesterday’s events came rushing back in my mind.

 

My hand flew to my pocket and I took out my phone. As I opened it, I saw five missed calls and eight messages, all from Harry. What the hell?

 

I quickly unlocked my phone and scrolled through my messages.

 

From Harry:
God Morning, love... :)

 

From Harry:
Still asleep??

 

From Harry:
Why are you not picking up my phone??

 

From Harry:
Anna... Reply...

 

From Harry:
Anna, are you alright?

 

From Harry:
Anna, pick up you damn phone!!!

 

From Harry:
Anna, you are scaring me now.

 

From Harry:
If you don't reply back within two minutes, I'm coming to your house...

 

Jeez.... What is wrong with this guy?

 

I sighed as I read his message and I could tell that he was getting more and more desperate after each message. So, I quickly dialled his number and placed the phone next to my ear. He picked after just one ring.

 

“What the hell, Anna? I have been calling you, messaging you since morning like a madman and you won’t reply single one of them. If you wouldn’t have called I was going to drive straight to your house. Where were you?” He said and I noticed how angry he was.

 

 “Calm down, dad. I just woke up and called you as soon as I read you texts.” I replied as a smile spread across my face as I imagined fumes coming out of his ears.

 

Stop it, Anna. He is worried about you and all you can think of is fun. I mentally scolded myself.

 

“You just woke up!!! What are you?” I could hear the sarcasm dripping from his voice.

 

“I am a human, who deserved a long sleep. After all, I spent an entire day with you. Do you have any idea how exhausting it was, Styles?”

 

“Fair enough.” He laughed. Thank God, he is not angry anymore.

 

“Anyways are you free tonight?” He added.

 

“That depends.” I replied and I searched my brain for some good reason to give him if he asked me out, which I was pretty sure he was going to ask.

 

“I will take that as a yes, then. You are coming with me for a dinner, tonight.” Told you, he was going to as me out. I thought.

 

“Whoa! When did I say that I was free? I am very busy with my studies and arranging the house.” I blurted as this was the first thing that came to my mind.

 

“Okay, we won’t go for a dinner.”

 

“Really?” I asked, getting my hopes up. I don't have any problem with him but when I go out with him we are bombarded by fans and I am pretty sure that none of them come to see me.

 

“Yes. Instead I will come to your house and help you with arranging you stuff and in studies.” He said and I knew that he would have a smirk plastered on his face. Uhhhh!!! What am I supposed to do now? I have already arranged my house and I don’t have any work since the university hasn’t started yet. I am standing at a dead-end.

 

“So?” He asked.

 

“Don’t I have a choice where I can stay all alone at my home and have a lazy evening which does not include you?” I asked even though I knew that it was a useless effort.

 

“Nope and I will be there to pick you up by seven, so be ready.” He said and hung up.

 

What is wrong with this guy? All I want is to peacefully spend my evening but no, how can Harry Styles let Anna Williams live in peace? That would be the biggest crime ever.

 

I got up from my bed and quickly made my way to the kitchen. I opened the refrigerator and took out a bottle of water and search for something to eat. As I sat down on my table, I heard my phone ringing. I decided to ignore it, thinking I might be Harry again but it again started ringing.

 

Man, is he ever going to give up? I thought as I made my way to my bedroom, where I had left my phone. I picked it up and read the name of the caller and immediately answered the call.

 

“Anna, why didn’t you pick it up before?” Sarah yelled from the other end and quickly held my phone away from my ear. Jeez, sometimes she can be a real pain in arse but that is the reason why she is my best friend.

 

“I am sorry. I thought that it was someone else.” I quickly apologised.

 

“Whhhoooo???” She chirped.

 

“Oh! Shut it, Sarah.” I snapped.

 

“You are such a bore. Has anyone ever told you that?”

 

“Yup, you have for a million time or so.” I quickly replied with a smirk on my face.

 

“So, how are you and how is everything over there? Or I should say, how is Mr. freaking gorgeous Harry Styles?” I remember how she freaked out and cursed me when I told her that I met one direction, didn’t recognise them at first and then sat with Harry for the entire flight. She absolutely adores them.

 

“Seriously?” I asked.

 

“What? You were the one who said that he likes you.”

 

“I said that I think he MIGHT like me. Get your ears checked.”

 

“It’s the same thing. So tell me, did he ask you for a date?”

 

“I DID NOT go out on a date with him. Although-“

 

“Although what? Tell me Anna.”

 

“Will you just let me finish my sentence.” I yelled.

 

“Sorry, sorry. Go on.”

 

“We hung out and he showed me around but it WAS NOT A DATE.”

 

“And......”

 

“You won’t give up will you?”

 

“Just spill it out Anna before I come there through the phone.”

 

“He kissed me, on my cheek. It was just a peck and nothing else.” I lead out a sigh.

 

“OH MY GOD!!! Harry Styles kissed Anna.... Woooooohooooooo..... Way to go Anna....” She screamed at top of her lung and this time the phone fell out of my hand at I grabbed my ear which was throbbing with pain.

 

Damn, that girl has some serious issues. I made a mental note to definitely take her to a doctor next time I go to L.A. I picked up my phone from the floor and checked if it was broken or damaged but it was intact. I placed the phone on my ear again but carefully and ready to move it away if Sarah was still yelling.

 

“Are you done?” I asked.

 

“Anna if you would have spent even an hour searching about the boys, you would have known that Harry always kisses on their first date if he likes a girl.” Now she has definitely lost her mind.

 

“How many times do I have to tell you that it wasn’t a date and it was just a peck on the cheeks, like a friendly kiss? Plus, I have better works to do rather tht sitting on the internet for 24/7 and searching about celebrities lives.” I said shaking my head.

 

“Shut your mouth and listen. He kissed you even if it was just a simple peck on the cheeks, means that he like you. HARRY FREAKING STYLES like ANNABELL WILLIAM.” I winced as she again yelled.

 

 

“Fine, you win. Harry likes me, okay?” I said so that she would just shut her mouth but on the other hand I was thinking if she was really correct then it means Harry likes me. God, what am I going to do if he really likes me?

 

“I know that I am always right. Anyways when is your second date?” She asked and I knew that she had that smirk plastered on her face. Trust me, when I tell you that she is the most persistent person you can ever meet.

 

“Well, he asked me to go to dinner with him today but I swear it is just dinner so please don’t screa-“

 

I was a little late as I heard her yelling from the other end of the phone but this time I had already tugged my phone away. No wonder why her mom gave her the room which is at the other end of her house. With her yelling, she had the talent to even wake up the neighbours.

 

“Sarah, stop it now. You are really making me worried about your health.” I said with sarcasm dripping in my every word.

 

“I cannot believe this is happening. You finally have a boyfriend now and not just any guy, your boyfriend is Harry Styles. I am so happy for you. I never thought you would ever date anyone after what happened with Luke.” She blurted and as soon as she realised what she just said, she shut her mouth.

 

But the damaged had been done. All the memories from the past came flooding back to my mind and the tears threatened to fall. The past always haunts you no matter how hard you try to forget it.

 

“Anna, I am so sorry. It just... I am sorry. I wasn’t thinking what I was saying” She said and I could sense how guilty she felt.

 

“It’s alright, Sarah. I just have to go, okay?”

 

“Sure. Call me whenever you feel like.”

 

“Yeah sure, bye.” I replied

 

“Bye, love you.” She said and I ended the call.

 

I felt the tears fall down on my face. No matter how hard I try to forget him, try to pretend to be strong, try not to care, his name always ends up making me cry and I hate that part. I hate that the guy who never gave a shit about me is the one who is the reason why I am so broken. He is the reason why I hesitate to trust any other guy. I hate that even after so many years, just his name can mess me up and I cannot do anything about it.

 

So, like always I tell myself that I will be strong and try to forget him.
