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?

A/N: Sorry the chapter is kind of short today guys! I hope you like it anyways! Thanks for reading!! -Xx

When I woke up I panicked for a moment. I wasn't in my bed, and I had a pounding headache that no doubt meant I'd been drinking. My nerves calmed when I realized that I was in Harry's room, but Harry was no where to be seen.

I stood up, having to just sit down again because of my head rush. It was early in the morning, but I knew I wasn't going to be able to go back to sleep, I was in too much pain.

“Morning Ariel. How are you feeling?” Harry's voice came quietly from the doorway. He was completely dressed and showered.

“I've been better. Hey uh, I didn't do something super drastic after I took your car did I?” I asked. Well, taking someone's car was pretty drastic in itself, wasn't it?

“Sorry about that by the way, and sorry about fighting with my mum in front of you. I know you didn't realize how I'd react, I appreciate the gesture though...” I rambled out apologies, Harry silenced me by pressing his lips gently to mine for a couple seconds. That could not have been pleasurable for him, I smelled like stale alcohol and sweat.

“I heard all this last night before you went to sleep, and no. Don't worry, all you did was drink in your apartment.” He assured. I huffed a small sigh of relief.

“I have to go to the studio today, and you said last night that you'd like to come with me. Do you still want to?” He questioned.

“Yeah, but how am I going to get to work?” I replied.

“I called your boss last night and told him you weren't feeling well and that you'd need the night off.” He grinned.

“Thanks.” I smiled a small smile. I was beginning to feel the embarrassment at what happened creep into my system. He had to rescue me, drunk from my apartment- again...

“We have to leave in half an hour, is that enough time?” He asked. I nodded, standing up slowly, carefully.

I hesitated for a moment, standing in front of Harry, wondering if I really wanted to do what I was going to do. Fuck it, I thought, He's the best person you'll ever know, you shouldn't be afraid. I threw my arms around his neck. 

"I love you, Harry. I am in love with you." I whispered. I didn't stay long enough to watch his face, or even for him to reply. I was in the bathroom within seconds.

Before I got into the shower I looked at myself in the mirror. I had dark circles under my eyes, and I was dreadfully pale. Sighing, I shook it off and tried to wash the bad memories away with soap. I got ready quickly, not wanting to make him late.

All I really had to do was get dressed and throw my hair in a messy bun, I didn't have any make-up with me... That made me uncomfortable for a while, but eventually I completely forgot about it.

“Do you have any Aspirin?” I moaned quietly as we stood by the front door, ready to go.

“Yeah, I'll be right back.” He answered, disappearing from the entry way. He returned a minute later with an Aspirin bottle.

“Thanks.” I said as he tossed it to me. I had to take it in the car because he was now in a bit of a hurry. Blush crept into my cheeks at the realization that we were taking his second car- a small red one- instead of his Mercedes, because his Mercedes was no where in sight...

The studio wasn't super far away, but it wasn't close either. Harry and I chatted the whole drive. Relaxed, happy... Perfect.

“I've been thinking...” Harry started when we parked in the parking lot for a very tall, fancy looking building, his expression was slightly strained. He was trying to hide nervousness or stress or something... “And I want to ask you a question. Just remember that there's no pressure on your answer, it's mainly a curiosity thing on my part.” He continued. He paused for a moment before asking, “Would you want to move in with me?”

I sat in surprise for a moment, not expecting the words that came from his mouth. Obviously my decision didn't take much time at all. But I had to think for a moment before I said it out loud... What if he got sick of me? What if this is happening to fast? 

“Yes, I'd like that.” I answered. Harry looked taken aback.

“What?” He blinked.

“Yes, I want to move in with you.” I repeated.

“Really?” He said, a slow grin spreading on his face.

“Definitely.” I smiled. If we lived together he wouldn't have to drive all the way to my apartment to rescue me... Haha.

“Wow okay, we can do some planning this weekend or something.” He replied, beaming.

“Sound's good.” I agreed. I laughed when he got out of the car and did a little fist pump in the air. I followed him, both of us now in a good mood. We walked side by side into the intimidating looking building...
