The Boy Next Door

Aubrey Coles just moved to Holmes Chapel, England from NYC. Aubrey meets the boy next door, Harry Styles, who is going to audition for the X Factor. They become best friends, but who wants to be more than friends? Harry makes it through the auditions, and has to go to boot camp. His mom invites Aubrey along, and she accepts. But why does a phone call make Aubrey suddenly leave?


5. Chapter 5.

*Aubrey’s P.O.V*

“Thanks,” Harry says. He’s looking at me like he’s… fascinated. Then he suddenly kisses me. Omigosh. Oh. My. Gosh. Harry Styles is kissing me. My best friend. Harry Styles. I kiss him right back. It’s a sweet, passionate kiss. Then we both break away.

Harry looks down at me and smiles. I smile back at him.

“Do good tomorrow,” I say.

“I’ll do my best,” he replies. And with that, Harry steps back, turns, and walks down the porch stairs. I watch him walk down the sidewalk, as he looks straight ahead. Soon, he reaches his house and goes inside. I turn and go inside my own house.

I kick off my shoes and start to walk to the stairs.

“Aubrey, can you help me with the dishes?” Mom asks when I enter the kitchen.

“Yeah, of course,” I answer. I bring the dishes over and Mom washes them. Then I dry them and put that away.

“Harry is a nice boy,” Mom remarks.

“Yeah, he is.”

“Your father would like him,” she says, smiling. Wow, I can’t believe she just brought him up. Out of the ordinary, too.

“You really think so?”

“Of course! Harry is so sweet, and all your father wants is a boy to treat his daughter right.”

I finish drying the last dish and put it away. “I’m going to bed. Night.” I hug Mom.

“Goodnight, dear,” Mom says, hugging me back.

We pull away, and I go upstairs. I enter my room and change my clothes. Then I flop into bed.

I hope you’re doing okay, Dad. I love you. Night. I silently pray for him. The next thing I know, I’m taken over by sleep.



So, here's just a short chapter, but I'll post chapter 6 tomorrow! :) ~Mel
