Take care

(Starts in 2009, before XFactor. Harry was just a normal teen from Cheschire with big dreams)

Harry and Valerie had always been best friends. From their birth to their teenage years, everything was fine. A few mistakes changed the whole thing, but their relationship always stayed strong.

Sometimes, saying nothing says it all...

«You've seen all my mistakes...»

Maybe they were ''too close'' to be bf/gf but what happens when life gives you no other choice? And what happens when fame takes away the person you need the most?

Some people change, and some just won't.

I was sitting in my kitchen when I heard a knock on the door. I said ‘COME IN’ and I was surprised to see Harry’s mom. 

-    Hi Anne! ...How are you?
-    I am just fine but what about you? 
-    I guess I’m fine aswell. 
-    I brought you your homeworks... You have to do them before your comeback tomorrow. 
-    Okay thanks. Why do you have these?
-    Harry... He brought them home but couldn’t build the nerves to come here and give them to you so he asked me to. Though he didn’t tell me what happened really between you two...

I stared at her silently. 

-    Well he lied basically and yeah
-    That’s fine if you don’t want to tell me. It might be private 
-    Yeh.. Anyway thanks for coming! 
-    Do you have any thing you’d like me to tell Harry? 
-    Not really, Bye Anne!
-    Bye sweetie

A few minutes after she left, I made my way to the house right next to mine. I knocked on the door.

-    Val? I just left your house, what’s wrong? And since when do you knock on our door?
-    Haha... you asked if I had any message for Harry. I actually have one but I prefer telling him myself.
-    Come in!

I walked the corridor and pushed the door on my left. 

-    Harry! Am I disturbing?
-    No Valerie. Come in. 
-    Your mom brought me my homeworks. You could have done it yourself
-    No guts. Last time I saw you you seemed kinda mad so...
-    Yeh.

I sat on his bed and we remained silent for a few minutes. The moment was quite awkward. He spoke first.

-    I know I already said it but... I am sorry. 

He was rubbing the tip of his fingers together, he was nervous. 

-    I guess that’s fine... No actually it’s not, Styles. If there’s something I hate in this world is lies! And you know it so well. Maybe you don’t consider it lies because you actually NEVER talked to me about it, but to me this whole thing is hurtful. 
-    I know... I don’t know what to tell you, I don’t know how to act with you anymore. It feels like I don’t know you anymore, or maybe I’m discovering a new side of you that you’ve always hide...
-    Don’t you think I feel this way too? 

He shrugged his shoulders, meaning he didn’t care or didn’t know what to say. 

-    I’m gonna leave Felicity if that’s what you want, Valerie.
-    Oh gosh no, I wouldn’t want to ‘’screw everything up’’ once again
-    What do you mean?

I told him the things Felicity had said to me in the bathroom, two weeks earlier. 

-    So she really thinks you and I have a ‘’love’’ relationship?
-    Basically...
-    Weird, isn’t it?
-    Yeh...Weird...

We both were really uncomfortable with the subject. 

-    So I don’t want you to leave her, but just know I’m not ready yet to accept it and I don’t know if I ever will. Because I’m telling you this girl is a pain in the ass, but you love her so that’s fine... I guess...
-    I do not love her!

His response had been so quick. 

-    I mean I do not love her, yet. I can’t say I love her because I don’t really know her and for now it’s a teenage love thing so...
-    Don’t bother trying to explain yourself. I’m gonna go home now, I said what I had to say. 
-    Don’t you wanna stay? We can still be friends, there’s no need to talk about that.
-    I don’t know, Harry. 
-    Diddy Kong Challenge?
He said as he winked at me, smiling. 

-    Fine! Only one challenge then I’m leaving!

I stayed in his room for about 3 hours. I left because he had to go to work at the bakery. One challenge turned into 4, then 5 and 6. The usual. 
The day after, monday, he woke me up at 6:30am by knocking on my room’s window. Apparently he was way more ready for school than I was. It was my ‘’comeback’’. I opened the window and screamed a big Fuck you! To him as he was running back into his house. This guy, I swear...

As I was getting ready, Kids by MGMT playing in the backgroung, I received a surprising text by Jess.

‘’Guess what!’’
‘’Our school is holding Battle of the Bands this year!’’
‘’Yay.’’ – Why would I care?
‘’I think I want to participate. With Ema. And you. We could be a trio! Haha’’
‘’No thanks? You’re such a weirdo you never heard me sing and it shows haha! Thanks for asking though’’

The fuck? I never showed any interest in making music and I never would. As Harry and I were walking to the bus stop, I told him what Jess texted me earlier. 

-    But you and White Eskimo have to register though! I can already see you win! 
-    Yeah sure we should!
-    Speaking about that! It’s been a while since you have talked to me about the band! How’s it going? With Will and stuff?
-    Fine, everything’s just fine!

He stopped walking about 25 seconds later.

-    What are you doing?
-    Actually Valerie...
-    What?
-    I have... I’m not in White Eskimo anymore. I left the band while you were in France. I didn’t tell you...
