Liam Payne has never been what you call 'popular'. Shelby has been popular pretty much her whole life. But one day their two worlds collide...


3. Harry The Player

Shelby's P.O.V.

*Lunch Time*

I took a bite of my salad.

"Ugh. I can't believe I'm partners with Christopher. He's such a nerd." Taylor said, clearly annoyed.

"I'm with Perrie!" Eleanor said excitedly. Perrie smiled happily.

"Who are you with, Shelbs?" Taylor asked me.

"Liam Payne." I said disgustedly.

"Who's that?" she asked. Perrie pointed to him.

"He's not that bad." Taylor said. "Better than Christopher, that's for sure." I giggled at her comment.

"Not really."

"Hey, he is pretty cute." Danielle said, sitting down next to me. I shook my head.

"Sort of but...he's a nobody. I wanted to be with one of you." Just then a group of boys came over to us. The jocks. Louis, Zayn and Harry. 

"Hey, babe." Louis said to Eleanor, kissing her cheek. Zayn came over and put his arm around Perrie. Harry just stood there awkwardly. I had a pretty big crush on him. He was really cute and lots of fun. But he dated Taylor and now they're broken up so I can't date him. Well, technically I could but Taylor says I'd be breaking the 'girl code'. Whatever that means. Harry sat down next to me.

"Hi Shelby." he said in his deep, raspy voice.

"H-Hey." I stuttered. God, he makes me so nervous.

"So you want to hang out after school?" he asked me.

"Umm, sure...I mean, yeah, of course. Sounds like fun." I said. He chuckled.

"Great. Meet me by the big oak tree after school." he told me. I nodded and he pecked my cheek. Then he and Louis and Zayn walked away.

"I think Harry likes you!" Eleanor said excitedly. I felt myself blush. I heard Taylor clear her throat.

"Umm, girl code!"

"Tay, that was so 7th grade. We're in high school now. There's no girl code." Danielle told her. She turned red from embarrassment and looked away. I felt someone watching me. I turned around and saw Liam and his little 'group' staring at me. They quickly turned away. Weirdos. 


Liam's P.O.V.

I took a bite of my sandwich.

"You're partners with who?!" Niall asked.

"Shelby True." I said for like the millionth time.

"Dude! That's awesome!" Dan exclaimed.

"Not really. She hates me." I sighed.

"I'm sure she doesn't hate you. She just, hasn't got to know you yet." Jon told me. I just shrugged. We all looked over at Shelby. She saw us looking and glanced at us. We quickly looked away.

"She is a babe. I wish she was my Chemistry partner." Niall said.

"Mine, too." Jon added. We all sat in silence until lunch was over.


Shelby's P.O.V.

I was standing by the big oak tree after school, exactly where Harry told me to be. I looked at my phone. 4:00. He should have been here by now, since school got out at 3:30. I saw a movement out of the corner of my eye. I looked up and saw Harry quickly walking towards me.

"Hey, babe. Sorry I'm late. I had some, erm, business to take care of." he said giving me a hug.

"I-It's okay." I stuttered. I looked at him. He had little traces of pink lipstick on his neck. And his hair was all over the place. Sex hair? No, Harry wouldn't do that. Would he?

"Ready to go?" Harry asked, fixing his hair.

"Yeah." I said smiling. We walked over to his car. An Audi R8.

"Wow. Nice car." I said. This thing must have costed a fortune.

"Thanks. My parents got it for me when I got my driver's license." he told me. Whoa. Nice parents. We got in and drove to a restaurant. We went in and sat down. The waiter came over and gave us our menus.

"Any drinks for you tonight?" he asked. His voice sounded oddly familiar. I looked up at him. Liam. When he saw me his eyes widened, as did mine.

"I'll take a Pepsi." Harry told him. Liam looked at me.

"I just want water." I said. He smiled and walked off. Harry was staring at me.

"What?" I asked blushing.

"You're so beautiful." he said smiling. I blushed even more and looked away. Liam came back with our drinks. He took our orders and a while later brought out our food. We both started to eat. I noticed Harry getting fidgety.

"Something wrong?" I asked.

"I...I'll be right back." he said quickly.


Liam's P.O.V.

Seeing Shelby here surprised me. Especially her being with Harry, since he has a girlfriend. Didn't she know that he was dating Emily Baker, who is in the grade below us? I noticed Harry get out of his seat and walk towards the bathroom. I suspected something was going on. I carefully followed him and peeked down the hallway. I was right. There he was, making out with...Taylor? I thought they had broken up! That cheater. I quickly ran over to Shelby. She looked at me oddly.

"Umm, can I help you?" she asked.

"Are you here with Harry on"

"Yeah. Why?" she said. I sighed and told her to follow me. I lead her to the hallway.

"I'm really sorry." I said to her before she saw what was going on. She gasped.

"Harry? How could you?!" she snapped. Harry pulled away from Taylor and looked at Shelby.

"Wait, Harry? You and Shelby have a thing going on?" Taylor asked, sounding rather shocked.

"Yeah. We do." Harry said quietly.

"No. We did. Goodbye, Harry." Shelby said. She stormed out of the restaurant.

"You selfish bastard." I said to Harry, before quickly following her outside. "Shelby! Wait!" I called. She stopped walking and turned around.

"What, Liam Payne?!" she snapped, clearly upset. 

"I'm so sorry." I said to her. She sighed.

"It's okay. I guess it was better to find out he was a cheater now than when we got more serious." she said. A single tear fell onto her cheek. I wiped it away with my thumb. She looked up at me. My hands were on her cheeks. I started to lean down. She quickly pulled away before I could kiss her.

"I'm sorry, Liam Payne. I can't. Yeah, your cute and nice but, I can't have feelings for you. We live in like, two totally different worlds. I'm sorry." she said. I lowered my head and nodded. She turned around and walked away.

"Wait." I said. She stopped and looked at me. "Call me Liam. Just, Liam." I told her. She smiled and nodded. Then she walked away. I stood there until I couldn't see her anymore. I sighed and went back inside. Harry was gone, along with Taylor. That boy is such a player. Shelby deserves so much better than him.
