The new guy

"Oh that guy? He’s new. He hasn’t talked to anyone since he got here. Guess he’s shy. Oh shit he’s looking turn around." "You know what I heard? That he’s crazy. People say he talks to himself." "Maybe he’s not that bad you guys. I’m going to go talk to him." … "Hi, I’m Katie." He gave me a smile that sent shivers through my body. "Hi, I’m Harry"

3. Chapter 2

~Saturday~
6:10
I was almost done getting ready for the movies. I had on a white Hollister shirt, a light brown cardigan, jean shorts, and white vans. I had my hair up in a messy bun and very simple make-up. The girls had told me to go casual so I did.
6:45
From Zac: I’m outside.
I walked outside with my wallet and Iphone. The movie started at 7 so we had a bit to get there.
"Hey babe."
"Hi Zac."
The car ride had very little conversation. Normal for us.
When we got to the theatre, there was plenty of people. We had bought our tickets in advance so we didn’t have to wait in line.
I found everyone standing by the arcade and went over.
"Finally, thought you wouldn’t show up!! Okay if anyone needs to buy food or go to the restroom leave now." And no hi from Lydia.
The boys left to buy food and Lydia went to go check her make-up. Angela stayed behind.
"How’d you convince Zac?"
"I just asked and he said okay."
"Well that’s a change."
"I guess."
Her phone rang.
I walked off a bit to look at movie posters. 
I was about to go back when I bumped into someone.
"Sorry Love, didn’t see you."
He had a very thick British accent, and a very deep voice. His eyes were a bright green. He had bouncy curly hair and was dressed in all black clothes. He was pretty cute. But something about him scared me. The way he looked at me….
"Its okay."
I walked away quickly back to the group, they had all came back.
"Who was that?" Zac asked.
"Just a guy, he walked into me, no big deal."
As we walked into the movie, I turned back to look at him.
He was still looking at me. 

~Monday~
1:00
School had been as usual today. Boring old social studies, a pop quiz in science, and the occasional rumour throughout the day. Zac wasn’t here either.
The biggest thing today was the New Guy. Apparently he was supper attractive and mysterious. Some people said he was crazy and had been seen talking to himself. That’s all I had heard.
I was hoping to catch a glimpse of him during lunch. He seemed….different.
I walked up to the group.
"….I don’t know. I wouldn’t want to talk to him."
Just as I thought, they were talking about him.
"Hey Katie! We were just talking about the new guy." Luke chanted.
"Not a surprise."
"Well he sits next to me in math and I think hes just…ugh."
"That’s what you think of everyone, Lydia."
"Whatever." With that, the conversation on the new guy was over.
I was finishing my salad and listening to all of their non sense.
"Lets go sit outside." Angela suggested. We all go up to walk outside.
We were walking to a little picnic table when I saw a guy in a black jacket, purple plaid shirt, and black skinny jeans standing in the soccer goal post. He seemed really familiar to me, but I couldn’t figure out from where.
"Hey, Angela, umm who’s that ?"
"Oh him? He’s the new guy." 

I took one more step forward. He was swinging a pocket knife back and forth between his fingers.
"Hi, I’m Katie."
He stopped moving the knife. He looked up and met my eyes. He gave me a smile that sent shivers through my body.
"Hi, I’m Harry."
It hit me. I knew who he was.
"Didn’t you bump into me at the movies on Saturday?"
He gave a low chuckle.
"Yeah that’s me. Sorry about that Love."
"Its okay, I wasn’t looking."
"Okay."
"So, how long have since you moved to LA?"
"A week. We moved here from London since my Mum got a job here."
"Oh that’s cool."
I wanted to just turn around and run of how scared I was, but something about him made me stay where I was.
"Look , if your friends dared you to come talk to me, you can go. I can clearly see that I scare you."
Shit, he was good at reading body language.
"No no no! I chose to come. But honestly , you do kind of scare me."
He stepped closer to me. His face was inches away from mine. My palms started sweating.
He grabbed a stand of my hair and played with it.
"Do I? Would it be wrong to ask for your number than?"
He stepped back and gave me a friendly smile.
"N-no ."
He pulled out his phone and waited for me to give him my number.
"Katie, it was nice meeting you. You should get back to your friends, it looks like the strawberry haired one wants to kill you."
His eyes looked up. Lydia.
"Y-you’re right. Bye Harry."
I turned around to a glaring Lydia. I basically ran over to her. Everyone else was gone, weird?
"What the HELL was that?! I didn’t think you would seriously do that! You’re so , I don’t even know!"
We were walking to class when my phone vibrated.
From Unknown: Did she strangle you (; ?
I couldn’t help but smile at the text. And than reality washed over me. What had I just done? I gave my number to a complete stranger! Not to mention one that scared me in a way!
But I had to know more about Harry. I couldn’t help myself.
