Almost Is Never Enough

"Don't worry I will catch you if you fall" he smiles.
"Even if I fall in love with you?" I ask him
"Only if you promise to catch me too" he says softly in my ear.

5. Starbuck's and Boyfriends

It’s been three weeks, three weeks since school started, and I guess this year hasn’t been to bad at all, beginning with my parents, they are much nicer, which means something’s up, then I have school and there he was, handsome as always, Mr. Harry Styles ladies and gentleman, and then we have my best friend Alex of course, but in the middle of so many nice things something bad has to happen and by that I mean my sister…my ultra annoying sister…

She’s always, and when I say always I mean always trying to have something with Harry, and that’s annoying me, why? I don’t know why it is annoying me, nor why she’s doing it…

She’s been acting all weird with him, it’s really strange…

*Flashback*

It was warm in the cafeteria, the smell of fresh bread and coffee made me stand up from my seat and order something to eat.

I leave my table, where Alex and Harry were debating who had the better English composition, since they are the brains of our class, and take off to the counter where I order a croissant with ham and cheese and a chocolate milk. I paid everything and while I was waiting for my food, I take a glance at my table and see something really weird. My sister sitting, literally, on the table talking to Harry, and flirting with him, and don’t even get me started with the looks, they were disgusting. Harry didn’t look too interested and Alex was with her eyes wide open looking at them, with that scared funny face of hers.

“Miss your order is ready” said the cafeteria assistant making me jump.

I thanked him and nervously walked to my table, half the way there my sister sees me, gets up and leaves to the ‘populars’ table. I look at her with a ‘what the hell’ look, making my way to the table.

I take a seat, and casually asked what happened…

“Just some girl that wanted to go out with me, cause I’m too irresistible…” he winks making Alex release a loud ‘HAHA’.

I join her, laughing so hard that Harry was looking at us like we were two lunatics…

“She’s my sister, you know?” I look at him seriously now…and that’s when he starts laughing too…

“No wonder you were so jealous from the other side of the cafeteria…” he mumbled loud enough for me to hear…

How did he…this guy must some kind of stalker cause he knows exactly when I’m looking at him or smiling or doing what ‘m doing I don’t know…I just blush and resume my beautiful croissant.

*Flashback off*

The sun was at its bright, the weather was cold, and the sky was involved in a sea of clouds…and there I was in my white and lifeless room having my beauty sleep when my phone starts ringing…

“What?” I answer not looking at the ID…

“Good morning, beautiful!” I hear this raspy low voice from the other end of the line…

“Yes, Styles what do you want?” I ask irritably…How dare he wake me up?

“Well what if you were a little nicer with me? I’m getting upset!” he makes his tone of voice sound like a baby crying…

“Well I’m getting tired of your bullshit, how does that sound?” I ask you, my mood is just fabulous…

“First of all it’s time to get up cause we have school in one hour and before school I wanted to go with you to Starbuck’s how does that sound?” He asks really excited…

“Ok, you win…but you pay…” I tell him before he hangs up.

“Anything for you beautiful” he answers sweetly…

“And by the way Styles, don’t ever call me beautiful…or babe, or love, or whatever” I say, it’s not that I don’t like it, I actually appreciate it but…I don’t know it’s really strange being called all of those things…

“Yeah Edwards, whatever, see you later!” and then he hung’s up…

I kind of felt bad for treating him so bad that I decided to make it up to him all day…I don’t know why I feel so sad, after all, we are just friends…

I get up from bed and make a run for the shower; afterwards I dress myself, pick my things up and leave home saying my good mornings to everyone with nods and disapproving looks as my responses…

When I step outside I see this black and huge range rover…Harry…yes him…I smile, but he wouldn’t smile back, so I get in and start with a simple good morning…

“Mornin’” he answers back…he looked sad…and I felt bad that I decide to break the silence…

“I’m sorry Harry I didn’t mean to be this bad to you this morning, I just…ugh I always mess things up, I’m sorry…” I try not to turn my gaze to his cause I know it will be so much painful, but instead I just feel the car stopping…

I feel his hand making contact with my chin, making me face you…I look at your orbs and they are so beautiful, this aqua green color I can’t even describe….

“I’m not mad at you, I just don’t get why you’re so rough with me sometimes…I don’t…it’s like you’re so nice to me and then it all vanishes, just like this wall separating us…” He looks at my eyes trying to find an answer but not even I can give him that answer…

“I like you Emma, I really do, and the further you push me away…the closer I’ll be to you” he whispers…and that’s when this warm feeling get’s to me again, but this time even stronger…

I wasn’t prepared for this. A guy liking me. Harry liking me, it’s just so many new things and I don’t even know what to feel.

“Harry…I…I’m really hungry and I guess we should be moving faster since we have school in twenty minutes” I turn my gaze to my clock and make sure that I’m not making any eye contact with Harry just so I can think of an answer to his questions, so just I can think of how to react to his words, instead of answers I see white, why white, why not letters to my answers?…

‘I like you too; I can’t hide that, but what if it’s just attraction? What if what I feel for you isn’t enough, I feel like you need to show me what you mean exactly…but by doing what? I don’t know but I gotta figure it out…maybe if I read about it…

That’s when Alex’s words appear in my mind…

You should concentrate on what you feel not what you read

But that’s the problem. I don’t understand what I’m feeling.

My thoughts are interrupted by Harry talking to me…

“You don’t need to feel the same way as I do you know? I just wanted to ask you if you wanted to go on a date with me…just to try it out…as friends.” When he finishes the sentence I feel like he read my thoughts…

That’s exactly what I need…exactly!

“I’d love to” I answer you back…

“Really? You’re really coming?” he asks with disbelief…I don’t understand how a smile and the happiness of other person could mean so much to me. I guess I’m starting to like Harry.

“Yes Harry, otherwise I wouldn’t be telling you that I’d love to go…” I say making him blush…he’s so cute when he blushes…

**

As soon as we get in Starbuck’s the smell of coffee invades my nostrils, it was so warm inside that it felt like heaven, just like Christmas but in September…

When we reach the counter I ask for my frappucino and the Starbuck’s assistant whose name was Mark winks at me and I gently smile back, making Harry somehow jealous…when he finishes his order, Mark asks me my name…

“My name is Emma and this is…” but when I was going to introduce Harry…he cuts my words by saying something that caught my on surprise…

“I’m Harry, her boyfriend” he smiles to poor Mark that turns white in just one second and with an embarrassed look said he was going to get our orders…

I look at you with a disbelief look on my face…who the hell do you think you are? Was all I could think of….

“What the hell Harry! I’m not your girlfriend, and he was just being nice to me!” I raise my tone of voice…

“Yeah and then he would ask you your number and then hurt you…” he mumbles loud enough for me to hear…

That’s when I snap, If I wasn’t a person of respect I would beat him up. What is it with him? I certainly wouldn’t do this scandal of he was talking to another girl.

“Look Harry, I’m not your girlfriend and just because I’m going on a date with you it doesn’t mean that you can suddenly wrap your arms around me and pretend that you’re my boyfriend…What about you Harry? How do I know that you’re not going to hurt me?” I snap…I literally snap and leave the building, leaving him there…leaving him inside the coffee shop…alone again.
