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.

4. Start Of Something New

“Oh I know you want to talk to me…otherwise you wouldn’t be saying that and smiling in the end” you winked and smiled again taking a glance at the board.

I roll my eyes at him. Who does he think he is?

“Whatever…so I never got to welcome you to hell on earth… So Welcome and may the odds be ever in your favor” I smile and continue my beautiful drawing techniques…

“Hunger Games Fan hmm, would you like to come with me to my house and make a marathon of The Hunger Games?” he smiles and looks at me hoping for a yes. It’s all in his eyes.

We just know each other for several minutes and he is inviting me to his house? Who does he think I am? Ashley?

“First of all there’s only one movie and second we just know each other for several minutes…” I mumble making him giggle…

“Oh come on I’m new here, it’s not like we’re going on a date or something” He whispered the last part making me slightly blush.

I just cough and pretend I didn’t hear it continuing our conversation…

“Oh come on Styles I don’t think that’s a problem, you have a lot to pick here, oh let’s start with Ashley, the one that can’t take her eyes off you, you absolutely took her breath away I guess you can take her clothes too…” I giggle the last part…looking at you…your face was unreadable, something that is very curious….normally I can tell when people get upset, scared, happy or they’re lying but your expression was as blank as a wall.

“Now that wasn’t funny” he says sounding slightly hurt but smirking…

Oh yes it was and you bloody hell now it was.

“Oh, really? Come on Styles…you know it was, you’re all smirking and stuff…I may know you for several minutes but I know that if I accept your invitation, tomorrow you wouldn’t even know my name…and I guess you don’t even know it do you?” I look at you seriously…and then a simple word escapes your mouth…

“Emma” he smiles and the bell rings… my gaze turns to my unicorn pig, taking it out of my notebook handing it to him…

“It’s for you…I guess you like him more than I do…” But my words are cut by his…

“Or is this a way for me not to forget about our first day of many days together?” he makes me turn red again.

 “Whatever rows your boat, Styles” I finish packing my bag and run for the exit leaving him there in the empty classroom…

“Oh he’s so sweet!” Alex makes me come back to reality…

We were in break time and Alex was determined that Harry and I were meant to be together, that he was my one and only love, that he was the nutella to my bread…

“He’s a heartbreaker can’t you see it? He just wants to play with people’s hearts…I’ve read about it…” I say taking a short bite of my apple…I know how this things work, I’ve seen it all…Before Alex was here in this school I was alone and I would always observe other people in this bloody corridors…how they would be together and the next day he was dumping her, or the other way around. 

“Hey, hey look at me!” she makes me turn my gaze to hers…

“You should concentrate on what you feel, not what you read…” Why does she always get to have a good thing to say about everyone…maybe she’s right…

“I don’t know Alex…I don’t even like him, I just met him…and you know, this is just like in movies, you get to know each other and then you get fooled and played…” But my words are cut by hers like a knife again…

She takes a deep breath and takes both of my hands looking me right in my eyes…

“You have to understand that life isn’t a movie, and that you can make your happy ending, nothing is scripted, you choose your path…come on, I’m not saying that you have to stay with Harry, but please don’t be so rough with him, try to be happy, let Harry come in to your life…” She smiles, making me smile back at her…making her release her hands from mines.

I understand her, but she has to understand that I’m also right.

“You know I still think that I wasn’t that bad, you know…” But I suddenly shut myself up by the entering of him in the cafeteria…I guess I lost myself in his eyes again cause Alex was already waking me up for reality when she notices where my gaze was relying …

“Come on, you like him” she face palms herself. Literally.

I take a deep breath and continue my conversation with Alex like nothing had happened…I just know that the fact he was in the middle of the cafeteria not knowing where to sit made me feel kind of bad, so without conscience I place my arm up making him signal to sit with us and seeing his smile was just this nice reward you get for making a good action…

“Oh...Hi Emma, I was just about to sit with the girl that you want me to undress…” He places his apple on the table sitting next to me smiling to Alex…

“Harry” he holds his hand out for her…she shakes it saying “Alex”

“Oh really…so why didn’t you?” I asked him annoyed… I take a quick glance at Ashley’s table and see her pissed looking at this table… uh…oh….I’m in a big trouble…

I don’t even know why I invited him…god. What did I got myself to…

“Awwn don’t be so jealous, love…I knew you were going to call me…” he takes a bite of his apple making me turn my eyes to his and laugh sarcastically …

“Me? Jealous? Who do you think I am…I’m not jealous…I just…” I blushed, this has never ever happened to me…I’m not jealous, he can’t just get in my table and tell me I’m jealous of his actions when we barely know each other, why in the world would I be jealous of him? I ask myself, why am jealous of him with that brat…

Then again love, that’s what jealous people say…

‘Shut up’ I tell my brain…

She’s prettier than you, now wonder he was going to seat next to her…

‘Shut up please’

I come back to reality taking a deep breath.

I see Alex look at me with a “I told you so” expression and Harry looks at me amused…

“I’m not jealous Harry and how in the world would you know I was going to call you?” I stammered annoyed.

“Come on, we are friends now, you wouldn’t leave a friend like that, would you?” he questions me.

And that’s when something hits me…did he just called me a friend? Did he just consider me a friend after inviting me to his house? Was he or wasn’t him the ladies man that I saw just a few minutes ago in Bio Class? When he called me a friend I guess I felt this warm feeling inside me…

“No I wouldn’t…you’re right…so Harry tell me more about you!” I answered with no problem…I guess this was a start of something…something new…a new friend…
