7. "I can't keep being your second choice,"

I woke up and my room was slightly blurry. I remembered I didn't have my contacts in, and blindly searched my nightstand for my glasses.
Sliding them on I looked at my phone. I had a few messages, some from Lilly Anne and Hannah, and one from Niall. Nothing from Harry.
Scared of what Niall had said, I looked at Lilly and Hannah's messages first.
They had gone to Louis' party after all, and now he was all Hannah was talking about. I didn't reply to any messages, rather pissed at the whole male race at the moment.
My thumb was hovered over Niall's name. Half of me was dying to see what he had to say, and the other half didn't care. He had been rude, and completely overreacted.
I knew part of it was my fault. I should have just told him why I couldn't go out with him, he would have understood and none of this would have happened.
I sighed. I had to see it at some point, so why not sooner than later?
Nialler: Im sorry about yesterday... I guess I was jealous. Forgive me?
I gasped, reading it. Niall was jealous? Of Harry? I quickly replied and through my phone down on my bed.
I felt terrible for Harry... At the time I told Niall I had no feelings for Harry, it was true.
But now.. Now I wasn't sure. I hadn't really known Harry or Niall for very long yet I didn't know what I felt.
But I knew there was something.
Was this the definition of a love triangle?
Harry's POV:
"I don't even know what came over me. I guess I was hurt... Jealous. I just wanted to feel wanted and I... I kissed her," I explained.
I was at Louis' house. I just needed someone to talk to about last night. I was crushed when Julia said she never felt anything. I hadn't know her very long, so how could I expect her to feel anything? Why did I feel anything?
I guess she was the reason for me kissing Kenzie.

But I was done. I was done going out with Julia, and I was done thinking I felt something, when clearly there was nothing.
"Wow. You're in a pickle," he commented, making me laugh.

"What about you? How was your party?" I asked, wanting to get off the topic.
"It was good," he said. I noticed him blushing a little.
"Was there a girl?" I asked.
He nodded slightly. I knew him too well.
"It was nothing.We talked a bit danced...there was just something about her," Louis said, as if he was saying it more to himself than to me.
"What about Eleanor?" I asked, referring to his girlfriend.
He shook his head.
"I don't know. Things have been weird between us lately. Don't tell her about Hannah though," he warned.
"Hannah?" I asked. He nodded and smiled.
"Yeah. Rhymes with Banana."
Julia's POV:
"And we DANCED!" Hannah gushed.
We were at Lilly's house.
Hannah was telling me about meeting Louis in full detail. I was happy that at least someone was happy.
I thought Louis had a girlfriend, but I wasn't going to be the one to tell her that.
I told Lilly about Niall, but no one else. She didn't even know he was her neighbor.
"Doesn't he have a girl-" I slapped Lilly in the stomach before she could finish her sentence, and shot her a death glare.

"What?" Hannah asked, her voice slightly cracking.
"I said I thought he had a girl... A Girl Scout cookie..." She stuttered, making me laugh.
"A GIRLFRIEND?" Hannah asked, catching on. "I didn't know he was already telling people we were together!" She joked .
Lilly and I laughed.
"I should go," I sighed, about an hour later. "Want me to walk you?" Lilly asked. I shook my head.
I was hoping to run into Niall on the way home and wanted to be alone.
I said goodbye to everyone an headed out the door, waking slow.
I stole a quick glance across the street and lo and behold, there was Niall.
Oddly enough he was in his garage again. I had lost all confidence in talking to him and put my head down. I acted like I was texting and began to walk quicker.
"JULIA!" My head quickly shot up as I heard my name being called.
By Niall.
I didn't know what to do. I decided to pretend like I didn't hear him and keep walking.
"JULIA!"
I kept walking.
I saw him coming across the street. He was persistent. Moments later he was standing right in front of me, and there was no getting away.
I looked up into his blue eyes.
Damn.
"Im sorry. I over redacted I.." I cut him off before he could finish.
"Niall. It's okay. I should've told you..." I trailed off. He surprised me by wrapping his arms around me, and pulling my body closer to his.
Nialls POV:
Her body was stiff at first, but she soon relaxed and returned my hug.
When I saw her and Harry laughing and nearly kissing, I had been jealous, and acted on impulse.
One second she has no feelings for Harry and the next she nearly kissed him.
But it's not as if we were together.
"Do you think maybe we could try going out again?" He asked, "For real this time?" She unwrapped her arms from me, smiling and blushing slightly.
"Yeah," she nodded, "I would like that,"
 

It had been three days and I hadn't heard a word from Harry. I decided to go to his house today and straighten things out, before our parents forced us to go out again.
When I got to his house, I took a deep breath, and forcefully knocked on the door.
"Hey! Julia!" Jeff exclaimed, opening the door.
I smiled awkwardly.
"Come in!" He said. I stepped in and he closed the door behind me.
"Is Harry here?" I asked, getting right to the point.
"Of course. I think he is in his bedroom, go on up" He said. I ran quickly up the stairs.
I saw an open door, and hoped it was Harry's.
As I got closer I saw Harry sitting shirtless on his bed, in pajama pants, focusing on something on his phone. He didn't see me, but I decided to go in anyway.
"Boo," I said, once I was at the foot of his bed.
He nearly dropped his phone, making me laugh. He didn't say anything, just looked back down at his phone.
"Harry," I said, staring him in the eye.
He refused to look at me.
"Harry!" I said, kicking him this time.
Still nothing
. "HARRY EDWARD STYLES!" I said.
This caught his attention.
"How do you know my full name?" He asked.
"You told me, remember?" I asked, thinking back to our first date.
He looked back at his phone again. I reached over and locked his phone.
"Hey!" He snarled.
He unlocked his phone and continued ignoring me.
That was it. I leaned on the side of his bed and began tickling him.
He started laughing immediately. "Stop it!" He laughed.
"Not until you talk to me," I ordered. He didn't respond, so I put one knee on either side of him, continuing to tickle him.

"Fine!FINE!" He called out. I rolled off of his bed, laughing too.
"That was immature," he informed me. I rolled my eyes.
"Im really sorry, Harry," I said, getting up and sitting next to him.
He nodded. "Me too. I guess I was..." I cut him off.
"You didn't do anything"
"Do you really have no feelings for me?" He asked, playing with his fingers.
"I don't know," I said, putting my head in my hands.
"I thought I did... And then you danced with Makenzie and I met Niall and I thought I didn't and now... I just don't know"
"I like you, Julia," he said, a combination of sadness and fear in his eyes.
"But I can't keep being your second choice... Not when your my first,"
