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!


3. Surprise!

- Peyton -

Thursday went by so quickly. I studied all day, except when I talked with James over a cup of coffee in the afternoon. Then I sat in my room all night, trying to avoid mom and dad so much as I could.

The night before they had been screaming at each other so much, they have never fought with each other like this before. they blame each other and don't see how much they will lose by doing this. how much they hurt each other or both of their children.


I sighed and turned off the lamp on the nightstand. time was nearly 2 am and I needed to sleep for at least a few hours before the test tomorrow. I looked at my cell phone lying quietly on the nightstand on charge.

Harry knew how important this test was, because I had told him so many times and he had promised not to call me until after the test on Friday. the thing is I was kind of missing hearing from him even though I myself had told him not to call or text me.

I closed my eyes and it didn't take long before I fell asleep from exhaustion.

Bip... bip... bip... bip... bip... bip... bip!


The alarm clock went off and disturbed my sleep. It felt like i just had put my head on the pillow. I groaned and stretched out my arm to turn it off. the clock showed 7:10 and I would have to get up now if I wanted to get a shower and make myself ready and not have to rush to school.

I sat up and grimaced at the sun that shone through the window. I jumped out of bed and went into the bathroom and started the shower so it would have time to get warm enough until I could step into it. 

I went over to the mirror and brushed my teeth before I striped out off my pajamas and stepped in to wash my hair and body. When I was finished, I turned off the water and stepped out.

I took a large towel which I wrapped around my body and then took a small towel that I dried my hair with. When I was finished, I went out to my room and brought clean underwear from the dresser, black lace given to me by my mother that I never had used. 

I put them on - now could be a good time as any? if not now then when? When would I use it? I sighed as I walked past the full-length mirror on the inside of the garment chamber door.

I wasn't exactly ugly, my long blond hair that reached down to my waist was wavy after the shower, I had curves in the right places and a full c cup. I have freckles on my nose and cheeks, I was moderately tanned - if I really lay in the sun, I could get pretty tanned anyway. 

When I smile I actually get a dimple in the right cheek, that I like - it makes me look bit cute. stomach is flat and my thighs are just right. I have no obvious reason to think I'm ugly, but I do it anyway.

But in the black lace I felt different, I felt more secure and more beautiful. That was a positive thing with the minimal fabric covering my private parts.


I sighed and went into the closet to choose what to wear. I held up various articles of clothing before choosing my light blue half-worn boyfriend jeans. I couldn't decide which shirt I should have so I went back to the bathroom to apply makeup first before I got dressed.

Face cream, brown mascara, a brown eyeliner, a light eye-shadow and a light lip gloss. I looked at myself in the mirror and smiled at myself, I looked quite alright. I turned around and walked out of the bathroom and stopped abruptly when I noticed that someone was sitting on my bed.


"Hello!" said Harry, smiling, he probably hadn't noticed that I only had underwear on me.

"Harry! Damn it!" I screamed and tried to cover myself.

"Oh shit, sorry Peyton." he exclaimed when he realized it but didn't look away.


He kept staring at me, and it wasn't exactly uncomfortable but it felt weird that your best friend stare at you when you're only in your bra and panties, sure it would just as well have been a bikini but now it was black lace.


"Harry!" I exclaimed, and he winced before he covered his hands in front of his eyes and stopped looking at me.

"I'm sorry so Peyton!" he said and I could see that he was laughing because his shoulders wouldn't stop moving.

"Whatever." I sighed and went into the closet and pulled on my jeans and then took a simple white t-shirt and the brown boyfriend-blazer that I had bought last week. I thought about witch shoes I should have and decided the low brown converse.


I put on my shoes and folded up the pants two laps then I folded up the sleeves of the blazer too. I walked out of my room and up to the jewel box that was on the dresser.

I chose the small brown earrings, my infinity ring and then took the bracelet with a braided brown leather belt and a chain with a small paper plane and then the matching necklace with a paper plane on.

the necklace was an exact copy of the one that Harry had, in fact it was he who had given me mine on my 16 birthday.

I turned around and saw that harry still hid his face in his hands.


"You can look now. What are you doing here anyway?" I asked as I walked over to the mirror.

"I wanted to surprise you, guess maybe I should have knocked first." he said.

"Yes it was a real surprise and yeah you could have knocked." I said as I began to braid my bangs into a long braid, so the hair was down but I still got nothing in my eyes.

"Since when did you start using lace?" he grinned and stood up.

"Since when did you need to know what underwear I use?" I asked as I turned to him.

"Touche!" he just laughed.


"I need to go now, the bus is here soon." I sighed and realized that he could hold on to tease about this all day.

"I can give you a ride." he offered, holding up a car key.

"I actually own a car." I laughed.

"Come on Peyton, you can study on the way if I drive." he said and I knew he had a point in that, that's why I was taking the bus in the first place.


I sighed and nodded at him. I took the bag was on the floor with the books and sunglasses lying on the dresser since I gestured for him to go ahead of me down the stairs.


"I'm leaving now, bye!" I shouted when we were in the hallway and when we had almost passed the front door, mom came into the hallway.

"Peyton, you haven't eaten yet! Oh hello Harry." Mom said and wiped the glass with the towel she had in her hands.

"Hi Mrs. Hale, I'm buying the breakfast today." he said and smiled one of his most charming smiles, just the thing that he and I both knew that my mother was so weak of.

"Okay, for this time. Nice to see you again Harry." Mom smiled and went back to the kitchen.

"Bye Mrs. Hale." Harry grinned and opened the front door to let me out.

"You're still bad I see." I said and walked out to his car as he locked it up with a click when we arrived.

"But you love me anyway!" he laughed.

"You just get away with that because you're my best friend." I grinned and jumped into the car.

"Are you trying to hurt me?" he said and put his hand over his heart and pretended to play hurt.

"Harold!" I muttered and looked at him.


Harry just laughed and started the car. he put on a pair of black sunglasses and started humming Whats make you beautiful.

and I opened the thick book and flipped to the page that I stopped reading the night before. I knew I couldn't concentrate but turned the page to make it look as if I was interested of facts that stood on the pages.


"When are you done?" Harry asked and turned off at a 7 eleven.

"the test starts 8:30 and then it's over at one o'clock." I said, looking up from the book.

"I can pick you up when you're done and we can go out for lunch?" he asked, and parked the car.

"Okay, but you really don't .." I began but Harry cut me off.

"I haven't seen my best friend for several months and I Want to spoil her a little bit! What is it so wrong with that?" he asked and took the key out of the ignition.

"No, I suppose not, I just want to clarify that you don't have to." I said and tried to smile.

"I already know I don't have to, Peyton." he grinned and opened the door and stepped out.


I shook my head and put down the book, the clock was still only 20 to 8 so there was plenty of time for some breakfast before the test began.

We ordered coffees and a bagels, harry paid and we sat down at a small table in a corner.

It was so long since I met him that I almost forgot how he actually looked like. I mean I knew what he looked like, and I often saw the pictures of him in the papers, but it was nothing compared to what he looked like in reality.

His incredible green eyes that always sparkled with laughter, the dept of his dimples when he smiled like an idiot when he was in a mischievous mood. how his hair curled at his ears and how he adjusted his hair when it fell into his eyes.

it was as if I saw something new with my best friend that I've never seen before, I caught myself blushing and looked away. I couldn't start staring at my best friend?

I saw some girls giggle and looking in our direction. Harry turned and looked at them and they waved and giggled even more. Harry held up his hand in a wink and smiled at them. I looked over at them again and saw how they looked down at me and making faces at me. they didn't think I fit with Harry and I knew how right they were, I didn't fit into his world, i would probably never do that either.


Why would he ever see me as more than his best friend anyway? wait a minute, where did this thought come from?


I shook my head to get rid of the thought and then looked at the clock and saw that it was time to leave.


"Come on Harry, I need to get to school." I sighed and took the last sip of coffee before I stood up and started walking towards the exit.


Harry followed and the rest of the way to school, we were silent. it was as if something had happened between us in there and nothing was like before anymore, well to be honest something had already happen between us the second that he saw me in my underwear.

Once again I shook my head and tried to concentrate on the test that is now very shortly to begin. after a few minutes the thoughts on Harry finally disappeared and I could finally concentrate again.
