6 Months

Chloe is a girl with an average waitress job at a coffee shop. When she gets offered a job to be Harry Styles' girlfriend, how can she say no to the money? It's an easy job right? Or so she thought... Until she actually starts to fall for him.

13. Lies

- Harry -

                                   What the fuck just came out Riley's mouth? Chloe drove into someone? What the fuck is going on? Is this a joke?
I look at Louis who's next to me and he is as shocked as I am. Niall, Zayn and Liam are also mirroring my action and Chloe looks like she's about to burst into tears.
"Oh shit." Riley mutters. "I-I- I didn't mean to make this awkward... I just thought you should know. The mother and her child didn't die though, even though Chloe basically ruined their lives. Sorry if I made this weird for you guys, I really didn't mean to..."
"That's exactly what you planned to do." Chloe says through her clenched teeth and Riley looks hurt.
We sit there in silence as I try to process what I've just been told. That's why she didn't want Riley here. She didn't want me to find out. But this is a pretty big deal. My girlfriend hit a mum and her kid with her car while under the influence.
I avoid making eye contact with her. I'm still in too much shock.
"Harry" She finally says to me. "Are you going to say anything?"
"You nearly killed two people because you were too drunk." I snap at her, ruder than I thought I would sound.
"I was young." She explains. "I didn't know what I was doing."
I'm staring straight ahead, trying to remember when I said whatever Riley said, I wouldn't change my feelings towards Chloe. But this was totally different.

The dessert arrives and we sit there, not able to start eating. We're still in a lot of shock.
"Let's dig in!" Niall finally breaks the silence and grabs a piece of pastry.
"So, what exactly happened after you hit them?" Louis asks Chloe as I sit there in complete silence.
"I can't really remember." She answers. "I remember getting out of the car and checking if they were ok. Toby called the ambulance and they were taken to hospital-"
"Did you visit them?" Zayn interrupts and she nods.
"Nearly everyday. I felt so horrible for what I did." She says quietly. "That's when I stopped all the partying and started to turn my life around. And I moved to London to get away from my old friends who started to ignore me after the accident."
"And how hurt were they?" Niall joins in, while he's the only one eating dessert.
"There was a bit of damage." She replies. "The son broke his arm and leg and the mother had a broken ribcage and was in serious shock."
"Like Harry is at the moment." Louis jokes but no one laughs.
"What happened next?" Liam asks, sounding intrigued.
"Uh... I don't really know. After they got out of hospital, I never saw them again."
We all sit there in silence and I don't have anything to say. Here I thought Chloe was a goody too shoes who hated partying and guys like me, but now Riley has told us about her past...

Zayn coughs. "So uh, I'm glad Riley told us about this. Now we know more about you."
"Yeah, the horrible stuff..." Chloe mutters and I agree in my head. I'm still silent after everything they have said. I just don't know what to say or how to act.
"Everyone has a past." Liam pats her on the back. "Don't worry about it. You're not in the past anymore."
"I'm sorry you had to find out about this. I did pay for their recovery and stuff though, and I stopped partying after that night. I'm so sorry.." She sighs, the tears in her eyes drying up.
"I'm glad I brought you guys together." Riley smiles and I see Chloe glare at her.

Things are now starting to become less tense as the boys all loosen up from the news.
Louis smiles. "Well, you're a completely different person now, and we love you."
"Yeah." Liam nods in agreement. "I guess we all have a past, but at least you're not like that now."
"Or so we hope." Niall teases and winks at her.
Chloe lets out a nervous giggle before looking at me.
"Harry, you haven't said anything." She says to me, worryingly.
I shrug. "I have nothing to say."
"Nothing?" Her voice is shaky.
"Nothing at all." I reply bluntly and she shuts up.

If only I can forgive and move on from her past like these boys can. But I can't. I hold onto things more than the lads.

The rest of the meal is eaten in silence and once we are done, we get back in the tour bus where we are driven to the venue for our concert.

Once we are at the arena, I head into the dressing room without saying a word. I talk to Lou while she does my hair in order to distract myself.
"Harry?" I hear Chloe's voice from behind me.
I don't respond and she continues. 
"Harry we have to talk." She says desperately.
"After the show." I shrug as I walk off.
I know I'm being a dick, but I just can't get over what Riley told us about her big sister.
"Harry!" She calls after me. "Please, just talk to me!"
I spin around and she stands there, her eyes puffy and red.
"Jeez" I say. "Don't cry ok? Please."
She stands there in silence. 
"Showtime in five minutes!" Liam pops his head around the corner and calls out.
I sigh. "I can't talk now Chlo, maybe later."
"Harry..." She whimpers. "You said you wouldn't change the way you felt about me. I know what you heard was... different... but-"

"HURRY UP STYLES!" Louis shouts at me impatiently.
I cut her off. "I really can't talk now, but I'll see you after the show ok?" And without giving her a kiss or hug, I walk out of the dressing room, into the hallway and towards the stage.
"It feels like we've been living in fast forward, another moment passing by..." And so the concert starts.


 

- Chloe -

                         "HOW COULD YOU DO THIS?!" I yell at Riley when we're alone in the dressing room.
"I told you I would change his feelings towards you." She smirks. 
"This is too far Riles!" I shout. "It's been two years! Can't we just move on!"
I'm fuming with anger right now. Riley has always wanted to ruin my life. Ever since two years ago. Just because the guy she was in love with, chose me over her. 
"Toby was a dick anyways," I groan. It's taking me all my strength not to slap Riley on the face.
"Whatever" Riley rolls her eyes. "Now you know how I feel to lose someone you care about."
It takes me a while to recover from my anger. "You know what Riley? If you're still holding on to the past, you haven't grown up at all." I say icily.
"Well I guess I haven't." She says uninterestedly, flipping through a magazine as she lyes on the couch. 
"You're dead to me." I say bluntly and storm out of the room.

I run to the bathroom and lock myself in a stall before bursting into tears.
I can't believe this was happening. Riley had just ruined my relationship with Harry and I was still stuck in a contract that Harry thinks has now disappeared.  Now I'm stuck with my bitch of a sister for another two days.
I wipe the tears from my eyes and sit on the toilet seat for a while to catch my breath my my previous hysteria. When my tears have dried up, I blow my nose and  make my way back into the dressing room.
Riley is still seated on the couch and when she looks up at me, she sighs.
"Chloe..." She starts.
"Shut the fuck up." I snap at her and sit on the couch.
She rolls her eyes. "Look, I shouldn't have told them about the accident ok? It's just, I'm still holding onto the past and I wanted to get you back. I-I can't help it..."
"I don't care about how you feel. In three days, you'll be gone and I will never have to talk to you again." I say, my eyes glued to my phone.
"I asked Barbara if I can leave early." She says quietly to me.
This makes me snap my head up. "What?"
She sighs. "I've already done what I came here to do, I know you despise me and after just now, I just feel like I should leave to make yours and the other boy's lives easier."
"You're the most selfish person I've ever met, you know that?" I ask icily.
"I know." She replies. "But these boys really care about you. I can tell."
"Harry doesn't even want to talk to me anymore, because of you." I snap.
"He'll change his mind, don't worry." She does a little smile.
"So when are you leaving?" I ask rudely.
"Tomorrow morning."
"Well, nice to see you have a bit of kindness in your heart."
"I'm sorry Chloe." She replies. 
"Well the damage has already been done." I roll my eyes.

 Just because Riley apologised, it doesn't mean that I'll forgive her.

We continue sitting in the dressing room in silence until the boy's show is finished.
When they come bursting into the room with loud laughter, I immediately get up. Harry is at the back of the group, more silent than usual.
"He's been acting strange throughout the whole show." Liam says in my ear.
"It's because of Riley told you guys right?" 
Niall nods in my direction after hearing what I said.
I sigh. "I don't know what to do."
"Don't worry Chlo, if he really cares about you, he'll come around. He's just in shock." Liam smiles and tries to comfort me.
"I don't judge anything from his past," I continue. "I don't know why he's judging mine. It was a long time ago!"
Liam chuckles. "Just give him time, I guarantee he'll be fine by bed time tonight."
"I hope so." I mumble.

-

              Once we're in the tour bus, we all sit around in the TV room. Riley tells the boys that she's leaving tomorrow morning and they don't know what to say since they all know that there's still tension between the both of us.
"Well, you'll be missed!" Zayn breaks the silence and says kindly.
Riley laughs. "I'm not so sure about that."
"Don't be silly, it was fun getting to know you." Liam smiles. "I've enjoyed our small talks around Australia."
The boys chuckle. Harry is still silent. He hasn't said a word since before the concert and I'm starting to think that he won't talk to me for a while. Riley looks at me but I avoid making eye contact with her.
"I'm sure she'll miss you deep inside." Louis says loudly when he notices.
I roll my eyes and get off the sofa. "Whatever. I'm going to bed." I mutter and exit the room.
"Don't dream about car crashes!" Louis shouts out as a joke and everyone bursts into laughter except for me.

 I change into my pyjamas and tie my hair up in a messy bun before getting into my little bunk bed on the tour bus. There is a room on the bus with four bunk beds and a door separating another room with four bunk beds. Harry, Zayn and I share a room and Liam, Louis and Niall share the other. 
I turn the light off and close my eyes, trying to close my eyes and forget about the events from today.
Before long, I hear a rustling and the door opens. It is Harry who then sits on my bed.  He runs his fingers through my blonde hair. My back is turned to him as I'm faced to the wall. A little smile appears on my face since I know he can't see me.
"I'm sorry" He whispers finally after he sits there in silence for a few minutes..
It takes me a while but I finally I sit up and say something. "No, I'm sorry for having you find out like that. I know it was a bit of a shock."
"It was." He admits. "But you didn't judge anything from my past, I shouldn't either."
"You were a bit of a jerk." I reply and he laughs.
"I do act like one sometimes don't I?"
"Yeah."
"It's just I'm no good at relationship stuff." He sighs. "You'll have to teach me."
"I know Harry,  and I know you're trying your best."
He smiles at me and we sit there in silence for a while longer. 
"You're glad Riley is leaving tomorrow, aren't you?" He says and chuckles slightly.
I nod slowly. "She told me she would change your feelings towards me by telling you about the accident, and for a moment, I thought she won."
Harry tucks a strand of hair behind my ears. "So that's why you didn't want her here."
I nod again.
"I'm sorry again for acting like a jerk." He says quietly.
"Don't be sorry Harry, you had to right to be shocked."
"Ok" He smiles. "Sorry."
I giggle. "Stop saying sorry!"
"Sorry" He says and I laugh.
He brings his hand to my cheek gently and leans in to kiss me. I give his tongue permission to enter my mouth and I can taste his minty breath while we make out.
He pulls away and smiles. "Now, everything is finally perfect isn't it? Riley's leaving tomorrow and I know more about your past in Australia. And the contract is over, so we can be together for real."
Suddenly, my stomach flips over and my face drops when Harry mentions the contract being over.
"Are you ok babe?" He asks.
"Huh?" I shake out of my thoughts. "Yeah, course I am." I lie.
"Great!" Harry shows his dimples. "I better let you get some sleep. Do you want to drive Riley to the airport tomorrow?"
I roll my eyes in disgust. "What do you think?"
He throws his head back in laughter. "I'll take that as a no then. I'll organise a driver to pick drop her off."
I nod and he gives me abother swift kiss before getting off the bed.
"Night, beautiful." He says and as he's about to leave the room, I call him back.
"Harry?"
"Mm?" He turns around. 
"Do you and the lads like Riley?" I ask. I've been asking this question to myself ever since I saw her on the night of my birthday party.
"Well, I think Niall kinda fancies her, but to be honest, we think it's a bit awkward since the tension between you too is quite obvious."
"I'm sorry for that, but I really hate her."
Harry chuckles and shakes his head. "No you don't, hate's a very strong word. But I'm sorry for inviting her, I didn't know you disliked her that much."
"Well at least she told you about it. I don't think I would've told you if she didn't."
"G'night Chlo, now you can have a good sleep with no worries."
I laugh to hide my nerves. "Ok, night. I'll see you tomorrow."
He blows me a kiss and I roll my eyes playfully at his cheesiness before he closes the door behind him.
I'm left alone in the dark thinking about the contract and the huge lie that I'm keeping from Harry.

 

 

- Harry -

                                "Get up!" I try shaking Chloe's arm to wake her up.
"Mmm" She groans and turns over. "I'm not driving her to the airport."
I chuckle at her response. She looks so cute when she's grumpy in the morning.
"Riley's already gone, she left at six this morning. She left you a note by the way."
Chloe doesn't reply and after a while longer of nudging her, she slowly gets up and rub her eyes. "Thank god she's gone." She mumbles.
I laugh. "So Barbara tells me we have to go to the VMA's next week."
She groans. "Cant we just sleep? I'm so tired!"
"Come on!" I whine. "I want to go exploring with my beautiful girlfriend on a drama free day!"
She groans once again and I literally pull her off the bed. Finally, she stands up and stretches. 
"No contract, no trouble, no annoying family members, just us!" I cheer and she giggles a little.
"Where's the note that Riley left me?" She asks and I grab it from my pocket to hand to her.
"Don't worry, I didn't read it." I smile and make my way out of the room to the kitchen on the tour bus.
"Where are we now?" I ask Liam as he makes himself a cup of tea. The tour bus has been driving all night and the last thing I was to do is stay on this stuffy bus.
"We left Seattle last night and now we're in San Jose." Liam replies.
I throw a fist pump. "Yes! Now we can finally go exploring!"
Liam chuckles. "Only for a few hours mate, we have a meet and greet this afternoon."
I throw my head back and groan. "You've gotta be kidding me."
"We are on tour Haz, not vacation."
"I can't wait till next month, I'm going to take Chloe to Paris and we're going to have the best vacation ever."
"You must be so happy that the contract is finally over."
I nod excitedly.
"This girl has changed you completely Styles." Liam pats me on the back and I laugh.
"She sure has," I sigh happily. "I'm glad that Barbara set the whole fake relationship up in the first place."
Liam chuckles. "Alright, well Niall and I are going to go out for a bit and Zayn and Louis are chilling on the bus for the day, but make sure you're back before three ok?"
I look at the clock which reads 10:43am. I nod and make my way back to the bunk beds to see that Chloe had disappeared. A few seconds later she walks out of the bathroom in a towel. My eyes widen as I look her up and down.
She blushes. "Stop!" She swats her arms at me and I chuckle. 
"Ok ok, I'm going to have a shower." I smirk and she rolls her eyes.
"Let's go out for lunch after, ok?" I suggest and she nods.
"Definitely! I'm feeling some pizza!" She exclaims and I laugh.

 


- Chloe -

                             Once Harry closes the bathroom door behind me, I grab my phone out and dial Barbara's number.
"Barbara Walters" She picks up right away.
"Please just let me end the contract." I plead right away and I hear her groan.
"Chloe, I will tell you one more time, you can not end the contract until the 6 months are over." She snaps.
I sigh. "Please Barbara, this will ruin our relationship. I can't have Harry hate me after this."
"Well then, you have two options. Either tell him or don't tell him. Either way, you'll still be in this contract until the end of 6 months." She says coldly. "I suggest the second option."
"Please, just make sure he doesn't find out." I beg.
"Fine, this will stay between you and me. I will text you the details for whenever you make public appearances and you will have to follow them."
"Ok" I reply simply. 
"Anything else you want to complain about?" She asks sarcastically.
"Uh" I clear my throat and lower my voice. "About the money, maybe you can stop it... I-I don't want the money anymore."
Barbara sighs. "As long as the contract goes, you will get paid. Whether you want to give it away or keep it, I don't care. But this contract states that you will get paid every month and that will happen until it ends."
I groan. "Fine, whatever." I mutter and she quickly says goodbye rudely before hanging up.

 I lie on my bed for a few minutes thinking about the contract before getting changed into a woollen jumper and a black jacket with skinny jeans and ankle boots. It's quite chilly outside for March soI add a scarf to my outfit. I blow dry my hair and put a bit of make up on before going on my phone.
I check Instagram since I hadn't been on in a while. I have now reached 110k followers. I chuckle at how insane some of the comments are before going on twitter and tweeting something.

 

@ChloeMartinez: just want summer already. It's freezing outside and I'm cold :(

 

    Finally, Harry emerges from the bathroom in nothing but a towel. I can't help staring at his wonderfully built torso with his swallow tattoos on his chest and the butterfly tattoo on his stomach.
"Eager to get out of the tour bus?" Harry asks me when he sees me dressed.
I nod and he chuckles. I exit the room so he can get changed and I take a seat on the couch. The boys are all still either asleep or in the kitchen so I'm alone. I decide that now is the time to read Riley's letter so I take a deep breath and pull it out of my pocket.

Chloe, It starts off saying.

I'm sure you'll be happy to know that I'm leaving. I just wanted to say sorry again about yesterday and yeah... you know I'm no good at writing things like this so please forgive me. I know you hate me right now but I hope one day you will forgive me for just being a bitch to you. I know I hung on to the whole Toby thing for a while and I was wrong.

So sorry again and I hope you'll come back to Australia one day. Mum and dad really miss you.

Love, Riley

 

     After I read this letter, I don't really know what to think. I'm still mad at Riley for wanting to destroy my relationship with Harry, even though it didn't work. But I shouldn't sink as low as she did and hold onto something for nearly three years.

My thoughts are interrupted when Harry walks out. He's wearing a shirt with a black blazer and black scarf. He has jeans on and sneakers on his feet. There's a beanie on his head which covers his curls perfectly. He didn't look too formal at all with the blazer. He looked... perfect.

"Ready?" He grins at me. "I told the driver to drop us off in the city so we'll be there in a few minutes." 
I nod. "Yeah, I can't wait to get our of here."
He laughs. "You have no idea."

-

                 Once we're in the city, we walk around looking at the cool buildings before the fans and paparazzi slowly start to find us. Harry and I walk around for a bit and when we stop at a red light to wait to cross the road, I look ahead to see a swarm of paps flashing their cameras away.
"Shit" Harry mutters to me. "How do they find us so easy?"
His face has dropped from a smile to an annoyed look and I'm quite angry.
"Why do they do this to you?" I groan and shake my head.

Can't the paps just leave us alone for just a day? Just ONE DAY!

Now I have to see what Harry goes through every single day, I feel terrible for him.
We stand at the edge of the road, waiting for the light to turn green in silence. (pic below)

 

           Finally, we walk down the street and find a nice restaurant to have lunch. We quickly make our way inside before we get surrounded by paps. Once we are seated and have ordered our food, I look at Harry's perfect face.
"You like what you see?" He asks cockily and I roll my eyes playfully.
"You look nice in a beanie." I smile shyly.
"Well I should wear it more often then." He says taking my hands in his. "Sorry about the paps by the way. I swear they never leave me alone." He adds.
"I'll get used to it." I shrug. "That's what I get for dating a famous pop star like you!"
"He throws his head back in laughter. "Well, now at least the contract is over."
I look away and clear my throat. "Yeah, it's great, isn't it." I smile uneasily. "No more contract." I mutter and he smiles.
