2. Chapter 1

The past six weeks have been amazing. Harry spoilt me rotten! Let me explain.

During the summer holidays, I received a letter from the University of Oakland International, saying my application to study there for two years had been successful. The minute I told Harry, he hugged me tight enough to squeeze my brain out. It was the most emotional time of my life, My mum studied there when she was my age and I always wanted to follow in her footsteps.

Two weeks later, Harry announced he was taking me on a romantic get away for three weeks in the Maldives. Oh, it is such a beautiful place. When we arrived, we had to be taken to our hut on a speedboat. Ten minutes later, I saw a row of huts sat on a huge wooden deck, clear blue water surrounding them. Inside the huts was your own little kitchen, a bedroom with a view of the fishes swimming in the sea and sun beds placed next to the sparkling water.

At night time, the lights in the wooden flooring came on and they lit up the whole island. It was peaceful, relaxing and total bliss. Harry and I thought we'd spice things up a little, so when everyone else went to have their delicious meals in the beautiful restaurant across the beach, we decided to have a little fun in the water. It wasn't the easiest place to fool around, but it was still romantic. Afterwards, we laid under a huge palm tree and looked up at the lightly lit sky filled with sparkling stars.

It was the best holiday I'd ever been on. I didn't want it to end but obviously we couldn't stay there forever. Unfortunately, it came to an end and we had to return back to Oakland. At least when we got back, mum and Laura had planned a huge welcome home party for us. I think they'd missed us a little too much, after all, we are the light of the party.

Oh! Did I mention... Harry moved in. We thought it'd be easier to come back to mine after a hectic night out.... rather than debate over who's turn it is to sleep over.

Anyhow, where was I? Ah yes!

I hated Sundays. The day when there was nothing on the TV other than the news, your mum always attempted to make a huge lunch and burnt the potatoes and people complained about the weather. I was slumped in the couch watching Miley Cyrus' new music video. I don't understand where she gets the idea from to sit on a huge ball of concrete with absolutely no clothes on... just butt naked. I really don't get it.

"You know, at least she's not wearing a wig and singing about having the best of both worlds." Harry said as he sat next to me.

"Still, she could at least wear a bra. Her boobs aren't even the same colour as her skin."

"Turn it over." He told me grabbing the remote and putting switching it onto The Big Bang Theory.

"I think Sheldon's quite hot." I told Harry.

"I'm sure he'd say the same about me." he replied.

"What you mean... he's gay?" I asked.

"Yeah. Problem?"

"No. Oh, that's a shame. Ah well, I could be the one to turn him straight."


"What?" I asked as he hit my arm.

"We need to get ready for your lunch with your mum." he told me.

"Do we have to go?" I groaned.

"Yes! No go shower and get dressed." He pushed me off the couch and I did as I was told. I haven't seen my mum since we got back off holiday. I kind of missed her coming over all the time.

"Macie! Are you ready? Your mum's just text me asking if we're still coming!" Harry asked.

"I'm ready!" I shouted as I jumped from the second step into his arms.

"I love you." I told him, kissing his lips.

"I love you too. Is that red lipstick?" he asked.

"Yep! Like it?" I asked, in a posh English voice.

"I think it's rather swell." he replied, kissing me once again.

We hopped in the car and Heartbreak Girl started to play on the radio. I wonder what it would be like to date one of the lads from the biggest boy band on the planet! Five Seconds of Summer had thousands of fans over the world and I was one of them. My favourite was Ashton.  My ex-boyfriend Niall was obsessed with him too... his dream was to join the band. Urgh! Why did I even remember him... he broke my heart the little toe rag.

"We're here!" Harry shouted as he parked outside the garden.

"Prepare to get the shock of your life when you see my mums cooking." I told him.

"I think she's a good cook." he replied, helping me out of the car.

"Yeah right."

We walked straight in and saw Mum, Laura and a very familiar looking boy sat at the table.

"Morning." Mum said. "Sitting down?"

"Yeah." Harry replied and we sat down together opposite Mum and Laura.

"I don't think we've met? Macie." I told the strange guy.

"Leon." He replied, shaking my hand.

"This is Harry, my boyfriend." I told him.

"Nice to meet you." he said, smiling.

"Macie, can you help me get the food?" Laura asked. We went into the kitchen and she shut the door.

"Who's that?" I asked her.

"I don't know. Mum says he's a friend's son. I don't believe her." she replied.

"He looks familiar."

"I hate to say it... but he kinda looks like dad." I froze.

"Nah. Dad doesn't have any other kids... just us two." I told her.

"Macie, we haven't seen him since we were 15 years old. For all we know, he could be married and living down the road." she replied.

"Look. I know you don't wanna believe that dad's never gonna see us again, but... that's not his son in there. Like mum said, he's a friends son." I told her.

We carried the food into the dining room and began eating.

"So, mum. Why's Leon here?" Laura asked.

"I'm taking care of him while he's mum's in hospital." she replied. I could tell she was lying but I didn't want to say anything.

"Has he been here long?" I asked.

"No. Came this morning." she replied.

"I need the toilet." Leon said and rushed off.

"Mum, who is he? Really?" Laura asked her.

"A friend's son. Look, I don't have to explain myself to you. Now if you don't mind, I would like to have lunch with my kids." She replied.

Everything went silent and no one spoke for the rest of the meal. When we'd finished eating, Leon went into the kitchen and started to wash up.

"Mum, we always do the washing up." I told her.

"He offered to do it this morning. Girls, stop whining." she replied and went to help him.

"Harry, I think we should go. Laura, you coming?" I asked her.

"Yeah, anything to get away from here." We said our goodbyes and thanked mum for the lunch. On the way back to mine, nobody spoke and the only sound was the music playing on the radio.

When we arrived home, we sat round the table in the kitchen and still nobody spoke.

"Right. Laura you're coming with me." Harry told her as he stood up, ready to walk out.

"What are you talking about?" I asked him.

"Laura's staying here tonight and I'm gonna go stay with my dad for a few days." he replied.

"You haven't spoken to your dad since you moved out here." I told him.

"Doesn't mean I'm not entitled to spend some time with him. Now come on, we're going to get your sleeping stuff." Laura went with Harry and left me sitting at the kitchen table.

"Well that escalated quickly." I said to myself.

Twenty minutes later she arrived back with her bag.

"Was he actually serious about going to his dads?" I asked Laura.

"Yeah, he just dropped me off and left." she replied.

"Right. Well, what do you wanna do?" I asked her.

"We could watch..."

I cut her off. "... VAMPIRE DIARIES BOX SET WITH EXTRA STICKY TOFFEE POPCORN!" We both shouted together.

"Oh My Gosh! You read my mind!" She said, laughing.

"I'll get the popcorn!" I told her.

"I'll get the DVDs!" She replied as I ran to the kitchen, grabbed two tubs of popcorn and jumped on the couch next to her.

"I miss doing this. We should do it more often." I said.

"We sure should." She replied, smiling.

We spent the whole night watching TV and craving Ian Somerhalder's body. I fell asleep on the couch and Laura fell asleep on the floor with a blanket wrapped around her. It was probably the closest I'd been with my sister since before I went into rehab. I found it quite fun.
