More than this - Friendzone

He has always been my best friend, we had always made time for each other even though he goes on tour and doesn't live here anymore.
but some how something changed, I saw him differently now and I caught myself feeling something more than just friendship. Best friends don't fall in love with each other right?
but our friendship turned out to be more than that!


12. Never felt this way

- Harry -


the fact that she was right didn't make it hurt less. to hide this? us? I knew where she was coming from. I knew the hole hate thing that fans used to send to Eleanor and Sofia. I hated that part. 

But Peyton was my best friend, the fans had known about her since before the X-Factor. I had never heard or seen anything bad written about her before, but then again that was before she was my girlfriend.

that word, girlfriend, to say that and best friend and Peyton's name in the same sentence is kind of unbelievable. If someone had told me this three years ago I wouldn't have believed them. 

Peyton was right though, we needed to figure out the hole new dynamic of or relationship and that was best of doing in private. I totally knew that.


we had the best afternoon in like forever. we took a walk through the forest behind our houses and over the meadow and then back to my house again. we had kept the PDA to a minimum so if the paparazzi had taken any pictures it would just had been on two best friends. just like we had decided. 

but the minute we stepped inside my front door we kissed like we hadn't kissed for a hole year. the frustration of not being able to hold her hand or kiss her when I wanted had gotten to both of us. 

As we helped each other take of our sweaters and shoes before hitting the wall. I lifted her up by her thighs and held my hands on her bum as we still kissing stumbled up the stairs to my room. I guess that we were lucky that my mom and Robin wasn't home yet. I left her lips and started kissing down her neck. she moaned and stretched her neck so that I could get more of her sensitive skin under my lips.

I loved this girl, it was no doubt about now. why had it taken me so long to realize this? the feelings I had for Peyton had no comparison. this girl had my heart and hadn't even noticed when I had given it to her. maybe that's why it had never worked with anyone else. Peyton had always been in the back of my head keeping me from falling in love with somebody else. 

I slowly put her down on the bed, not letting her go for one second. I was laying next to her, keeping her close in my arms. I pulled away slightly watching her. her blue eyes were open and staring into mine. 

she was so amazingly beautiful, the way her lips curved or the freckles on her cheeks dotted her skin. the way her dimple showed as she smiled and the way her eyes sparkled. 


"you are so beautiful, you know that?" I said.

"thank you Haz."  she smiled. 

"you mean so much to me, I can't even begin to explain." I told her and kept looking into her eyes. 

"you mean so much to me too." she whispered.


I could see that she really meant it. her eyes started to water and she looked so happy right in this moment. a single tear started to run down her cheek and I wiped it away with my thumb. my heart was pounding so hard in my chest, and I could feel her heart pounding just as fast as mine. It was like they had the same rhythm, like they were a perfect match.


"you have no idea how much you mean to me Harry." she whispered.

"if its even a 10th of what I feel for you then we are in trouble." I chuckled. 

"are we going to do this all night or are you going to kiss me again?" she smiled caressing my cheek. 


 I smiled and lowered myself getting closer to her again.  I kept my eyes on hers as I neared her lips with mine again. 


"Harry! Peyton! we're back!" my mother called from downstairs. 


I groaned and pulled back again laying myself on my back. I frustratingly ran my hand over my face and trough my hair. Peyton sat up and fixed her hair before reaching for the remote control and turning the TV on. 


"hey mom, we're up here." I called but stayed on my back. 


I heard the creek in the stairwell and knew that she soon was going to knock on the door and just a minute later she did.


"hey kids, how was your day?" she asked walking in.

"it was good, we took a walk and watched some movies." Peyton said. 

"yeah, we were just about to think about dinner." I said and sat up making room for my mom on the edge of the bed. 


I leaned my back against the headboard and looked between my mom and Peyton.


"I was thinking about pizza."  my mom said sitting down.

"yeah that sounds so good." Peyton said smiling. 

"I want a pineapple one." I said.

"can we share one Haz?" Peyton asked and turned to look at me.

"sure, babe." I said before I even reflected on what I said. 


Peyton widen her eyes at me but quickly pulled herself together.


"since when do you call each other babe?" my mother asked and looked between me and Peyton.

"we always done that. right Peyton?" 

"Harry, you are my son and I love you but you are a terrible liar." my mother chuckled.

"mrs twist, Anne, we... " Peyton stammered.

"It's okay, that's between you two." mom said and patted my leg to calm me down. 

"mom, I.." I started.

"we are still trying to figure things out." Peyton said and scooted closer to me. 


I smiled and took her hand. here we were, we had decided to not tell anyone about us and just a few hours later we tell my mom. My mom smiled and looked at both of us.


"I've known you both for practically your entire lives. didn't you think I would figure it out. Harry I'm you mother, mothers know stuff like this." she smiled wider.

"my mother wouldn't." Peyton sighed and looked down.

"Your mother would have figure it out sooner or later." my mom said.

"yeah I don't think so but thanks." Peyton sighed again. 

"so I'm going to call for that pizza." my mom said and stood up. 


she leaned in and kissed  my cheek and gave Peyton a hug before heading for the door. 


"mom, don't tell anyone." I said.

"It's not my place to tell sweetheart, just know that I'm supporting you what ever happens. both of you." she smiled and left my room.


Peyton and I sat in silence on my bed. the TV was still on showing an old episode of friends. the one where Phoebe tries to teach Joey how to play the guitar to be exact.  


"well we survived telling the first person." Peyton let out a deep breath and cuddled up next to me. 

"yeah." I said still a bit lost for words since my mother had figure everything out.


I laid my arms around her pulling her closer to me. I kissed her forehead and smiled. telling my mom was so easy, that gave me hope that others would be as understanding and supportive as well. but then others could just as easily be the other way around. 


"Peyton?" I asked.

"yeah?"  she answered.

"do you think telling the boys would be this easy?" I asked her.

"I don't know." 

"I don't want to keep this to long from them. they are like my brothers."  I said.

"I know, lets tell them together when we get to London next week." she smiled looking up on my face.

"yeah, that's a good idea. we still have your graduation and your prom to go to before that so lets just take one day at the time now." I said.

"I was just about to suggest that." she smiled.

"great minds think a like right?" I chuckled.

"yeah great minds." she joined in in my laughter. 


we just stayed like that for a while, cuddled up next to each other. the easy part of telling Peyton what I felt was over. Now we needed to move on from here. 

how do we go from best friends into a couple without anybody getting hurt or disappointed. I loved this girl more than I have ever loved a girl before and that scared me. It scared me how much Peyton meant to me and how much I cared about her. I don't want to see her get hurt, I rather see myself get hurt than her. 

but because of the fact that she was my best friend and that she knew me probably better than I knew myself was just a positive thing. we trusted each other, we knew each other and this was just the beginning of us.
