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.

Harry's POV
After a few hours of planning for the Blink 182's show, Val decided it was time for her to go home. She walked the door and my mom felt the need to say something:

- You guys are gonna get married someday
- Oh stop it we've been friends since forever
- Well that's a solid base.

And I walked away. At this very moment all I thought was how the things my mom said sometimes were weird. 

Days later, at school, Val came to me. 
- 9 days until the tickets are on sale!!!
- And we still don't have a plan of how we're gonna get to the show
- Actually we have 2 options: we're going by bus which is going to be a long ride but I think it's worth it, but we'd have to sleep in London because you know that'd be a rough day... Or maybe we could go with...
- Who? What?
- Well, Will's dad is willing to take us...
- You're still with him? You still talk to him? You talked to him about the show of OUR life? Wow, that's a disappointment Valerie.
- No! Don't be mad . He asked me if I wanted to go because he was planning on getting tickets too... So I said to him that we were planning to go... Might as well go together...
- Ehh.. No. I'm not going with him to my favourite's band show.
- Oh my God get over the guy please because anyway he's in your band so you have to deal with him no matter what.
- I sing and he plays the drums. He has my back in front of him and that's perfectly fine. I don't need to talk to him.
- Well the White Eskimos are gonna go far with that chemistry
- Whatever...

And the school bell rang. I got to my math class and I sat right next to Felicity. The teacher gave us a 20 minutes class and let us catch up on our homework's for the rest of the time. 
- Harry I have something to ask you!
- What is it, Fel?
- My cousin is getting married in two months and they're looking for  someone to play at her wedding. I asked her if you guys could do it and I showed her the video of you at the Christmas party and she said she'd be willing to let you do it!!!
- Wow thanks love! That's awesome! We have a jam session tonight, I can't wait to tell the boys. 
- You're welcome sweetie!

She kissed me and that got us expelled of the class. That girl was a bit unpredictable by times but I'm not sure if that was what I liked about her or what kept me resistant of getting closer to her. Sure thing, that day I was in absolute love with her, it was such an awesome opportunity for White Eskimo. 
I announced the exciting new to the lads as soon as I entered Will's basement. They were all so happy about it and knew we had a lot of work to do before we got there. We practised for almost two hours,  then Haydn and Nick got back to their house. I was left alone with Will. His basement had never been more quiet. 

- Listen, I'm here for music. I don't really care about you and your relationship with Valerie. And I just want you to know I'm not going to apologize for what I did. Because what you did, well what you said, was even worse.
- Okay. But that sounds like you're using us to do what you love. You could sing by yourself, you don't seem to need us.
- I need you guys! But I don't need your friendship. And you should reckon the luck you have, Val shouldn't be with you. I genuinely think she deserves better.
- I'm pretty sure Fel deserves better too. 
- Fine. See you.
- Bye Harry

We practised three times a week for the wedding show during the two months before the special date of June 5th. Nothing much happened during these months, I was still with Felicity and Valerie was still with Will, which I finally... Let's say...Accepted. But I never agreed with what he said, I mean it's an ethic thing for me, I never would've agree with this whether it was about Valerie or any other girl. Oh and about the Blink 182 tickets, we bought them even though we still had no idea how we were going to get there. I heard Will bought some too so if we really didn't have a choice, we were going to go with him and his dad. 

The day before our performance, my voice was a bit shaky. I was so nervous that I decided to stop talking until the day after. I woke up at 8 in the morning and I was so excited. This day was going to be beautiful and it was going to be the biggest show of our band's life! I knew we weren't that good, especially when my voice was cracking up, so I guessed performing at wedding parties were going to be the biggest we could get. I attended the ceremony because I was Felicity's guest. There were about 200 people in the church and it made me even more nervous. There was going to be that much people at the show and even more because some are only invited to the party after. The time had finally came for us to go on stage after a 20mins preparation. I jumped in and I shouted ''CONGRATULATIONS CLAUDIA AND MARTIN!'' and then we started playing Hard Day's Night by the Beatles. Everybody was dancing and the bride seemed very happy with us performing, she was dancing and smiling. We did a few other songs and we finally got to sing the song Valerie by the Zutons. Will insisted that we play the song but I knew Felicity wouldn't like it. I don't even know why he wanted to do the song, it sure had the same name as his girlfriend but the girl described in the song isn't the Valerie we know. It says she's a ginger and when I listen to it I imagine a 35 years old women. Anyway, it was a very beautiful song. 

By the time we started playing it, half the people had left the room to go outside. It sure was a sunny day but I felt like we were not good enough. At least, the bride was still there and she liked our music. As soon as I started singing the first words of the song,

''Well sometimes I go out by myself
And I look across the water
And I think of all the things, what you do
And in my head I make a picture...''

I saw Felicity leaving the room to go outside. I wasn't sure if she was mad at me or she just wanted to enjoy the great weather. By the time we got to play our most-practised song, Summer of '69, there was just about 20 people left in the room. My voice really started to crack up so when we ended it I decided it was over for us. I whispered to the boys that I couldn't do any more songs even though we were supposed to do a few more. Will was the only one mad at me, I think he was the one who thought White Eskimo could really be something big. What a fool. 

After we picked up all our band stuff, I went outside to check on Felicity. 
- Wow Harry that was a great performance
- Thanks. Too bad you didn't see the end of it. 
- We're hearing you from the outside so I didn't miss much. And maybe I did not care about what you had to sing about a girl called Valerie. 
- Will choose the song. 
- Oh
- Listen Fel, I think I'm gonna go home. I'm tired and my throat hurts.
- What? But there's food coming up plus we can have free drinks! Let's just get drunk tonight, come on! And we have to take official couple pictures!
- Food and beer is tempting, but no thanks. My mom's on her way. I'll see you later, Felicity.

That day marked a big disappointment for me. Music and love wise. I really looked forward to this show and it all fell apart. My voice was bad, Will was bad, White Eskimo was bad in general and Felicity was starting to get on my nerves. She's the one who set us up and she didn't even stay to watch us. It was a terrible time for me. I finally left the party to go back to my house. I stayed in my room all night, listening to some real music made by people who truly knew how it works.
