Like Crazy

Everyone thinks Julia Parker is perfect, but she is nothing close.
She is soon to be facing an arranged Marriage to her dad's close friends son, Harry Styles, though Julia wants nothing to do with him.
But, through Harry she meets Niall who she falls head over heals in love with.
They begin doing things behind Harry's back, and when he finds out, they devise a plan.
But with the wedding coming up, Julia is worried there won't be a way out.
But she can't marry Harry.
Because of Niall.
She needs him, she wants him, she loves him, like crazy.


20. "I'll miss you,"

My mind was racing. Why did I just say that? I am so stupid... What was I thinking? I mentally face palmed.
Just as the words were leaving my mouth the ride screeched to an abrupt stop. "We apologize for the inconvenience, but the ride has unexpectedly shut down. Please remain calm and in your seat," a worker shouted through a megaphone.
Just our bloody luck to be stuck on top.
"What was that? I couldn't hear you," Niall said, rubbing his ear in discomfort.
I let out the breath I didn't know I was holding. Alleluia. Now what did I tell him..?
"My parents," I said quickly.
He nodded in confusion.
"They're getting married,"
Julia, could you sound any stupider?
"They weren't already?" He asked.
"It's like a.. Vow renewal. In Hawaii."
Well, that was true. Next week was my parents 15th wedding anniversary, and both sides of the family were heading to hawaii for week. And of course because its my mother, Harry would be coming too. "Wow... That's cool," he said, clearly not understanding what this had to do with anything. P"So I'm going to be gone for a whole week," I finished.
Nice save.
Kind of.
"I'll miss you," he whispered into my ear, wrapping his arm around my shoulder.
I leant into his side, enjoying the close proximity. I felt like I should at least tell him the whole truth about this.
"Niall I don't want you to be angry.. But Harry is coming too," He tensed up as I said this.
"Julia..." He whispered, shaking his head, "I don't like that,"
"Neither do I," I muttered.
Harry was nothing but temptation, and a week with him and my parents forcing us together will be the death of me.
"You need to promise me you won't do anything with him, Julia," he said firmly.
"I promise, Niall. Because I love you," His body relaxed.
"I love you too,"
"How much?"
"Like Crazy,"
Niall's POV:
15 minuets and several mechanics later, Julia and I were off the Ferris wheel.
"That was so cool. I've never been stuck on a Ferris wheel before," She smiled, revealing her white teeth. She walked with an especially happy skip in her step, curly blonde hair cascading her back. Living under the iron hand of her parents but always acting so carefree. Always finding the positive in every situation. Always making me... Happy.
If this was love, then I loved being love. Especially with Julia.
"Ready to go baby?" I asked, sleepily.
It was now dark and I was aching to lay in my bed.
"We have to do this before we leave!" She squealed, pointing to a photo booth.
I laughed and smiled, "Oh yeah, and IM cliche,"
She just kept smiling and practically drug me in the direction of the photo booth.
"These are so cute!" She exclaimed, looking at the photos we took as we navigated through the parking lot.
She ripped the four photos in half, giving me two, which I absentmindedly stuck in my pocket.
The drive home was longer than the drive there, they don't call it the city that never sleeps for nothing, that's for sure.
Julias POV:
"Do you want me to take you home?" He asked.
I sighed, "Not really..."
"You can stay with me if you want," he offered.
"Are you sure?" I asked.
"Of course," he winked at me.
Niall led me into his house, giving me one of his shirts to change into.
Mom is going to kill me... I thought as I peeled off my jeans.
She was probably going ballistic. I had never ran away or done anything like that. I decided to text her, just so she knew I hadn't fled the country or something.
After changing and texting my mom, I walked into Niall's room.
"So.. Um, you can have my bed and ill sleep on the couch," he said awkwardly.
"Okay," I agreed, was that the way it worked?
damn me for being so naïve.
"Goodnight," he left the room, leaving me with a kiss on the cheek.
I climbed into his bed. This was huge. Holy crap.
Nearly ten minuets passed when I realized i couldn't sleep. This bed was too big, and I was cold. I pulled the huge duvet off the bed, wrapping it around me and prancing into the living room.
"Niall?" I whispered, hoping he wasn't asleep.
But he was.
I dropped the duvet, and snuggled in with him on the couch, gently pulling the blanket he had over enough to fit us both.
He shifted, putting his arm around me, pulling me closer and scaring the shit out of me at the same time. "Goodnight baby," he whispered, leaving a small kiss behind my ear.
"Goodnight Nialler,"
He fell asleep soon after, while I stayed wide awake, tears streaming down my face.
Everything was wrong. I was a terrible person. I didn't deserve Niall, because all I could ever do was brake his heart. I had turned so I was facing him, studying his perfect features.
"I'm sorry. I'm sorry for what's going to end up happening to us, I'm sorry I can never be as good for you as you are for me, and I'm sorry that I'm too weak to stand up for myself and make this all end. Just know that I love you and ill never stop." I placed a small kiss on his nose, wiped away the tears, and finally allowed myself to fall into a deep slumber.
I was currently packing for my Trip to Hawaii, we left early tomorrow morning. After everything that had happened this month, I was actually looking forward to being able to leave the craziness of the city behind and relax on the beaches on Maui.
I planned on keeping my distance from Harry when my parents weren't around. I didn't need anymore guilt or secrets to keep from Niall.
-The Next Morning-
"Julia! Lets GO!" My mom called. I sighed, taking one look across my room to ensure I hadn't forgotten anything, before picking up my bags and walking downstairs.
To my surprise, Harry was already waiting in the living room.
"Hello, dear," he said, wrapping his arm around my waist and kissing my cheek.
Damn He was a good actor..
My mother smiled warmly at us. I played along, but Harry's arms weren't Niall's, and this just didn't feel right.
"Julia you have everything then?" My mom asked.
My only reply was a nod, it was too early to be awake.
"Alright.. We'll have Mason take the bags out to the car.. I feel like I'm forgetting something," my mom said, frantically running back up the stairs.
Mason was our cook, but he did a lot of other things too. His wife Dani had just had a baby, so he only just came back to work this morning. I loved Mason, and a lot of the time he was more of a parent to me than my own.
I pulled away from Harry as soon as my mother was out of sight.
"Are you okay..?" He asked awkwardly.
"Just fine," I snapped.
"Are you mad or something?" He asked gently. I refused to let him guilt trip me into feeling bad and doing everything I always do.
"Im fine," "Look... If its about what happened when you came to my house.."
"Harry I said its fine. Just don't try anything this week, you got it?"
He held his hands up in defense.
"Geez. Did you ever consider that I might not want to spend a week with YOU?" He shot back.
Okay, now I felt bad.
I guess I was always thinking about Niall and I, not thinking that Harry has Kenzie and probably see's me the same way I see him.
"I'm sorry Harry," I said quietly, looking at the floor.
"Whatever," he sighed, "Lets just try to have a good week, eh?"
I nodded slightly.
"HAWAII!" He boomed, making me laugh.
I was excited, and Harry was a great guy. Maybe everything would be okay.
After a crazy 12 hours of flying and switching airports several times, we made it to Maui.
No airline flew straight from NYC to Maui, so we were forced to stop in Minnesota on the way before going to Hawaii.
Overall, I was glad to finally be off the plane.
Even though I was 18, I had planned on staying with my parents.
But they had different ideas.
"So your dad and I got the cutest little beach house rented, and we rented you cuties a house just a few miles away," my mother declared, upon our arrival at the Maui airport.
You know in movies how all the hula girls come out and put Lei's on you? Yeah, that doesn't really happen.
My dad and Harry got caught up talking about something irrelevant to me, so I took the opportunity to talk to my mother.
"You rented Harry and I a HOUSE?" I shout whispered.
"You just got engaged," she began.
"Against my will," I muttered.
She glared at me before continuing. "I figured you two needed some time alone. Bond. You're going to be married soon you know,"
I sighed.
"Here's the key to your rental car," my mother said as we all met up.
He handed the key to Harry and I.
"I want you two to rest tonight and maybe explore a bit tomorrow? We'll talk soon," my mother said.
She practically shooed us away.
We awkwardly began walking hand in hand, making sure my parents were gone before letting go.
