Always and Never

Ariel Tanner believed that love was nothing but an illusion, a sick prank your brain pulls on you. But when she meets Harry Styles she begins to question everything she has put together about love. This frustrating boy was the only truly genuine person she'd ever met. How someone like him could even exist blew her mind. Harry, on the other hand, was amazed at how closed off Ariel acted. He made it his mission to knock down the walls she'd built around herself, because behind the flirting and the sarcasm, he got a glimpse of a girl that he wanted to become as close as humanly possible to. But did he really want to know everything behind those walls?


28. BSE

I woke up to my phone buzzing on my desk, and Kate snoring beside me. I picked my phone up, smiling at the name on the caller ID.

“Hello?” I answered, my voice raspier than normal because I'd just woken up.

“Hello sweetheart.” Harry said on the other line. As corny as it was, it made my heart beat a little faster whenever he called me 'sweetheart'.

“Did I wake you up?” He chuckled, I pictured his corresponding smirk.

“Yeah, what time is it?” I asked.

“Almost noon.” He laughed in disbelief.

“I had Kate over last night, we were up until 4.” I explained.

“Oh, makes perfect sense then. I called because I wanted- well, we wanted to play something for you.” He said. I could almost hear his smile. For a few seconds there was nothing but the sound of him moving things around, then Liam counted down from 3. Someone began playing the guitar, and soon Harry started to sing... 

“Maybe it's the way she walked, straight into my heart and stole it. Through the doors and past the guards, just like she already owned it.” He began. A song. They were singing for me...

I said can you give it back to me, she said never in your wildest dreams.” -Zayn.

And we danced all night to the best song ever, we knew every line. Now I can't remember how it goes but I know, that I won't forget her 'cos we danced all night to the best song ever. I think it went oh, oh, oh. I think it went yeah, yeah, yeah. I think it goes... woo!” -All of them.

Said her name was Georgia Rose, and her daddy was a dentist.” -Liam. I laughed at that, causing Kate to stir. This sounded familiar...

Said I had a dirty mouth.” -Harry. “I got a dirty mouth.” he then added, half laughing, “But she kissed me like she meant it!”

I said can I take you home with me, she said never in your wildest dreams!” -Niall, then they all repeated the chorus. I was smiling so big my cheeks were in pain.

You know, I know, you know I'll remember you. And I know you know I know you'll remember me.” -Louis.

You know, I know, you know I'll remember you and I know, you know I hope you'll remember how we danced. How we danced!” -Zayn.

1,2, 1, 2, 3, ah!” Harry exclaimed. They repeated the chorus twice, a little different this time, but not much. Zayn ending the song with repeating “It was the best song ever.” A few times. I clapped, laughing lightly.

“Do you like it?” Harry asked. His phone must have been on speaker because his voice was a bit unclear.

“I love it.” I grinned. There's that 'L' word...

“That's such a relief. I'm so glad.” He breathed.

“How could I possibly dislike that song, Harry? It's amazing!” I assured. How could I possibly dislike a song that he fucking wrote for me?!!

“Thank You. So, so much. We're being called back to the studio, but I'll talk to you later, okay?” He promised.

“Okay. Beautiful song, boys. Bye.” I smiled even wider, though I hadn't thought that possible.

“Goodbye Ariel.” Harry said. I heard various goodbyes and thank you's in the background before he hung up.

“He wrote you a song??” Kate chuckled beside me, making me jump.

“They- uh, I don't know if it was only him. But it's about the night we met...” I nodded.

“How romantic!” She teased dramatically.

“Oh shut up.” I rolled my eyes. It was though, it was romantic... More than romantic, unfathomably incredible. Kate got dressed and went home soon after we woke up, having an appointment to do the make-up for this TV show host. She was totally off the wall about it. I wished her good luck before she left, but then I was alone with nothing to do...

I sighed, putting Maroon 5's 2nd album into my CD player, and getting a book out of the drawer of my night stand. Where the Red Fern Grows. I cried every time I read it but I still loved it! I had a reading day, curled up in bed. I took a long bath once I'd finished crying about the ending.

I fell into bed, completely content that night. My hair in a bun and an over sized t-shirt making me feel at home. I was asleep quickly, not even noticing how early it was for bed- 7:30.

I woke at around 8, finding random things to do until I had to start getting ready for my shift. Kate called me, and gushed about how well it went at her job. I was so happy for her! That was her dream coming true! I also talked to Harry, who said that he'd pick me up from my apartment soon after work.

I felt uncomfortable about how much I was looking forward to seeing him. He only said we were going to his house, he didn't specify anything. I hummed that song that the lads sang to me as I got ready and almost the whole way through my shift. Probably annoying many customers, and coworkers...

“Since when are you such a ray of sunshine?” Jasmine snorted as I walked out the back door to my car. She was smoking a cigarette. Dumb ass, those'll give you lung cancer. I ignored her (which was very hard because I really badly wanted to tell her to fuck off. And maybe offer her money to buy breath mints...).

Harry arrived in the parking lot of my apartment after what felt like hours.

“Hi babe.” He smiled.

“Hey.” I grinned back as I closed the passenger door.

“I was wondering, if maybe, you'd like to meet my family tonight...” He said quietly, cutting right to the point. I was taken aback for a second, or two, or maybe three...

“Y-your family?” I stuttered. What if they hate me? They'd probably think I'm the town whore, and that their son could do way better. They'd be right, he could do a million times better. No, scratch that, Harry could do a billion times better...
