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

A week after the show, I decided to go see the boys at Will's house. I knew they were there because I saw Nick walking with his bass earlier. I knocked twice and there were no answer so I entered thinking they were playing so not hearing me. I closed the door quietly and started to go down the stairs. I heard Will talking. I stopped just before they could see me and I listened because I felt like I was concerned. He was speaking clearly about 2 girls and a boy. Apparently the guy was a dumb ass and a girl named Valerie a 'silly numb bitch.' 

- It's like he thinks he's gonna keep her forever and she'll be waiting for him while he goes on and fucks other girls. She's stupid. And he's a jerk.

The other guys remained silent. 

- Sometimes their friendship makes me wonder if he's gay. Maybe he likes dicks and that's why he's feeling so good with her, because he's on her team.

That was enough. I made my way down the basement, I crossed my arms and I looked straight into Will's eyes. He was sitting on his little drum bench. He stop talking and he seemed embarrassed. Haydn and Nick were holding laughs. I decided not to say a word and I picked all of my stuff that I had left before. In the end, White Eskimo was a shame. Music is supposed to bring people together, not to tear them apart. Nick and Haydn didn't seem to understand the seriousness of the situation and joked about me leaving the band. I kept my face straight and challenged them to find a better singer. Will said it would be easier to play with a new singer than it ever was with me, and he added that I didn't have that much talent. I laughed and complimented him on his drummer skills, with a sarcastic tone. I left Will basement for one last time with no regret. I knew that was the right thing to do. 

On my way back to my house I thought of everything that happened in the last 6 months or so since I had join White Eskimo. Everything would've been so different if I had not. Valerie probably would not have dated Will and our little friendship would have stayed steady. Maybe my singing skills were going to stop improving not that I left the band but I could not care less. Then, I thought of Felicity. I knew she liked me at first because of the hype we created that Christmas night at school. I wondered if she'd still like me now that I wasn't part of a band anymore. I decided to give her a call. She was surprised to hear me but seemed happy. I changed my trajectory and went over to her house.

- I left White Eskimo today
- Oh really? But why? You looked good in that band
- Let's say I didn't feel completely part of it.
- Ok...

I wish she would have told me that I was going to succeed even without the boys and that I was talented but she did not. She talked to me about how great her summer was so far and said she forgave me for what I did to her the night of her party. I could barely talk and all of a sudden she felt like kissing me. We laid on her bed for the rest of the afternoon and did pretty much nothing but kiss. I wasn't quite sure if it was a good thing or not, but I enjoyed it. 

We were together every other day during the rest of the summer. Things weren't as complicated as it was before, maybe because this time our relationship wasn't the official kind. Basically, all we did was make out and enjoy summertime. I started working at the local bakery and she was working in a little clothing shop, which kept us from being together everyday. I didn't know where this was leading us but it was fun. 

Valerie was on a trip to France with her parents during 3 weeks. I knew she was happy to leave for a while so I didn't bother her too much with text messages and DM's on Twitter. A week before her come back, she texted me:

''J'espère que tu ne t'ennuies pas trop de moi!''
'' What does that mean, Val?''
''I hope you don't miss me too much''
''Oh... Cest vraiment longue sans toi les temps''
''I smell google traduction here. That doesn't make any sense but okay thank you! I'll be back next Friday around noon''
''Can't wait :)''

I'm sure she was excited to come back but it made me anxious. Nobody knew about Felicity and I so she couldn't learn it from anyone else, that was a relief. I was scared of her reaction and since we were not officially together, I wasn't sure if I was going to tell her or not. She was coming back 2 weeks before the start of the classes so that gave me time to figure out a plan on how to tell her.
