Dark Consumes

Harry used to be sweet nerdy guy, that yes everyone hated but I loved him. He was sweet and he was cute and perfect just the way he was. But then he got in with the popular group, and they changed him.

1. Best Friend

I walked down the foggy England street as I shivered and pulled my tan jacket closer to my body for warmth. Even though I had moved to the UK when I was 14 I still wasn't fully used to the cold weather. I kicked a stone as I walked to the bus stop, I looked up to see the tall body of my best friend Harry.

"Good morning, Harry" I smiled as I brushed a bit of hair out of my face.

"Good morning, Chloe" Harry smiled with his glasses covered eyes. As always his hair was gelled back and his big brown glasses were on. Today he was wearing a white collared shirt and tie under a brown coloring vest and dress pants.

You see, Harry and I were known as the school cast outs. I only has two friends, but only Harry will be seen with me. My friend Elena is in with the popular crowd so she mostly just comes over and texts me in private. Every day Harry and I are made fun of. They call him a nerd and ugly and a try hard while they call me ugly, fat, tell me to go home, and everything under the sun really.

"Cold, huh?" I asked looking up into Harry's green eyes.

"You say that every morning, you know?" He smiles down at me.

"Well it's cold every morning" I respond with a smirk. Suddenly my phone starts to vibrate and I tke it out of my pocket to see a text from Elena.

From: Elena

Hey! Sleepover tomorrow? It's Friday tomorrow so we can stay at my place and watch movies all night :)

I smiled at her text and quickly sent her a response saying yes of course. I shoved my phone in my pocket as I heard the bus coming and got on.

[Later That Day] 

"School sucks" I sighed as Harry and I walked home from another shit day of school. We turned onto our street as Harry started to kick a rock along with him.

"I don't know, it wasn't as bad as usual" He shrugged.

"What do you mean? I got surprise casserole thrown at me" I said looking at Harry's furrowed eyebrows.

"Can I tell you something weird?" Harry asked, looking down at me.

"Yeah" I said drawing out the 'h' sound.

"Today, this guy was calling me a faggot" Harry said and I nodded, "And then Lydia stopped him. Like full on got mad and told him to stop. Weirdest part, afterwards she turned around to me and smiled then said 'sorry about him'" Harry said then looked down at me.

At our school there was a popular cliche and to be in it, you had to be hot and mean, and Lydia was basically the queen bee.

"That's weird" I said as we reached Harry's house. Harry and I has lived side by side ever since I moved to Cheshire and we were always at each other's house. "Mine or yours today?" I asked.

"Mine, my mom's at the grocery store and Gemma's at work" Harry said and I nodded as walked into his house and took our jackets and book bags off.

"Want something to eat?" Harry asked and I nodded while sitting on the bar stool by the island counter.

"Sure" I shrugged as I pulled out my phone to see a text from Elena.

From: Elena

I HAVE SOMETHING MAJOR TO TELL YOU. LOG ONTO FACEBOOK NOW.

I was confused by the text and texted her back quickly while Harry poured popcorn into a bowl.

To: Elena

I can't I'm at Harry's just tell me now!

"Want to watch a movie?" Harry asked as he set the bowl of popcorn between us.

"Not really" I sighed, "What if Lydia likes you?" I asked suddenly, a bit worried about having my best friend stolen by Lydia.

"L-L-Lydia? Like me?" He stammered, which he did a lot, just not usually as much around me.

"Yeah, maybe that's why she told that guy to stop bugging you" I shrugged looking down at my plate.

"W-Why would she like......me?" He asked with blushed cheeks.

"Harry, you're a great guy okay? But I don't know, it was just a thought. You know, let's watch a movie actually" I said with a smile, trying not to let the fact that something felt wrong about Lydia being nice to Harry bothered me. Big time.
