Change My Mind

I don’t know if I’ll ever love someone as great as Harry so that’s why I never want to forget this feeling. That’s why I’m scared of moving on. I don’t want to forget what it feels like to be in love with Harry Styles, especially the feeling I got when Harry Styles used to love me back.

5. Deal

Lily’s POV

 

I was jolted awake as I heard someone open my bedroom door. I slowly opened my eyes and saw Ed poking his head through the doorway.

“Ed!” I whined as I looked over at the clock and saw that it was 6 in the morning. I groaned before throwing the blanket over my head, hoping that it’d make him disappear.

“Sorry, just checking up on you. You came home after I fell asleep.”

I just grunted in response.

“I’ll be working today. I’ll be home late afternoon. Are you going to be okay?”

“Yes.”

“Don’t go out by yourself, okay?”

“Okay, mom.”

“I’m serious, Lily.”

“I know, Ed. I’ll make sure to stay here all day and be bored.”

Silence filled the room as I waited for Ed to say something. It was quiet for a long time that I thought that he left. I pulled the covers off of my head and looked over at the doorway to see him still standing there, looking deep in thought.

“Ed?”

He snapped out of his thoughts and looked back at me. He blinked a couple of times.

“Just watch some movies or something. And I’ll leave you some money for food.”

I just stared back at him, mostly because I was still groggy from being woken up at 6 in the morning but partly because I wanted to say something back. Something along the lines of ‘I’m a big girl and can take care of myself’.

But I decided against saying that to him. So I just have him a short nod.

He gave me a small smile.

“I’ll see you later, Lily. Text me if you need anything.”

“Will do. Now go away. I want to sleep.”

I buried my head back into the pillows and closed my eyes as I heard him chuckle.

“See you, later, Lily.”

Again, I just grunted in response.

I heard Ed close the door and then the front door open and close a few seconds later.

I tried going back to sleep but it was useless. I groaned and threw the covers off of me before swinging my legs over the edge of the bed and stretching.

I got up and went to the bathroom to brush my teeth before I went into the kitchen to make myself a bowl of cereal.

I brought my breakfast into the living room and turned on the TV. I flipped through the channels before I stopped at one showing The Vampire Diaries. It was my favourite show and I could argue with someone for hours about it being the best show ever.

If only I could find my own Damon.

By the time the show ended, I finished my cereal and I was curled up in the couch with a fuzzy blanket. I checked the time and saw that it was 7.

It was only 7 and I was already bored out of my mind.

I went through my Twitter and Instagram and once I realized that I kept refreshing and nothing new was being posted, I gave up. It was now 7:28.

I groaned and plopped face down onto the couch. I lay there in the same position for a couple of minutes before I heard my phone getting a text.

I immediately got up and grabbed my phone from the coffee table. I checked to see who it was and a smile appeared on my face at the name displayed on the screen.

Harry.

I opened the text right away.

Good morning :)

My heart skipped at this simple message. Who knew two words could make a girl’s day.

I had an amazing day with Ed and Harry yesterday but spending the night with Harry on the London Eye made the night perfect.

It was nice to have him as a friend. It was nice to get to know him. I would’ve never pictured him as down-to-earth as I saw him last night. I knew he was a good friend of Ed but I never gave him a second thought other than that.

I was grateful that he agreed to go with me to the London Eye since Ed wouldn’t let me go alone. It was sweet that he took the time to stop to take pictures and sign autographs for the girls that came up to him.

Even though I didn’t want him to pay for my ticket, I thought that it was nice of him. Taking pictures with him was so much fun and I felt so carefree at that time. It made me completely forget about my worries.

It was also incredibly sweet of him to hold my hand after those two guys whistled and stared at me as we walked past them. I felt so safe. I thought that he was going to let go once we passed by the two guys but he didn’t. He kept his strong hand clasped with mine.

But the part of the night that I will always remember is being on the London Eye with him. It was thoughtful of him to tell me about the different parts of London as we looked at the view from above. I got to know a lot about him. A lot of nice things. He showed how important family is to him, especially him mom.

I snapped out of my thoughts, realizing that I was just staring at the message.

I quickly sent a reply.

Good morning :) how are you?

I patiently waited for a reply and my heart skipped a beat once he did.

I’m good. How about you? Did you get a good sleep?

I'm great :) and yeah, I did but then Ed woke me up at 6 when he went to check up on me and I couldn't go back to sleep after :( now I’m bored out of my mind.

Haha aww, I’m sorry. Why don’t you go out and go shopping or something?

I would but Ed is keeping me on house arrest. He’s working today and he won’t let me go out by myself.

I started biting my nails as a reply didn’t come right away. A minute later, I finally got one.

I can go with you if you want. I don’t have any plans today.

A huge smile appeared on my face. Honestly, I wanted to ask him if he was busy today so we could hang out since he was the only other person, other than Ed, that I knew. But I didn’t want to sound needy and ask him to hang out after we spent the whole day yesterday.

I was about to reply saying that I would love to have him go with me but then I had another idea.

How about you just come over? We can watch movies and order food. Unless you wanted to go out then I’m okay with that :)

My heart thumped against my chest as I waited for a reply.

That’d be lovely. Yeah, we can just hang out there. Did you want me to go over now or is it too early?

No, any time’s fine. I just have to get ready but it won’t take me long. I’ll probably be done by the time you get here. Whenever you want to come over is fine with me.

Ok, I’ll head out now. I’ll text you when I’m there. See you soon :)

See you :)

I jumped to my feet and practically ran to my room to get ready. I changed into a floral romper and topped it with a sleeveless jean jacket. I curled my hair into loose waves and applied some eyeliner and mascara before going into the bathroom to brush my teeth.

In the middle of brushing my teeth, I got a text.

I quickly finished brushing and grabbed my phone to check my message.

Here :)

A second later, I heard a knock on the front door.

I gasped, running back into my room and spraying myself with some perfume before putting on some sandals and rushing to answer the door.

I opened the door and tried to compose myself as I saw Harry standing on the other side, wearing dark skinny jeans and a plaid shirt with a plain white shirt underneath. He gave me his signature smile before I returned it with my awkward one.

Harry’s POV

I woke up and immediately checked my phone for any messages.

Particularly one from her.

I frowned as I only saw new texts from Liam and Gemma. I quickly sent them a reply.

I shouldn’t be too upset about it, she was probably still sleeping since we got home late last night.

Yeah, that’s probably why.

But now I kind of want to text her something. Anything.

I should just text her good morning. It’s just a simple text, nothing too big. It’ll just let her know that I’m thinking about her.

So I texted her ‘good morning’ and then put my phone in my pocket before getting up and going to the kitchen to get some tea. It’s 7:30 in the morning so she was probably still sleeping.

But then, my heart leapt into my throat as I got a text. I quickly pulled out my phone and checked to see who it was from.

Lily.

I smiled as I opened up her text, my heart beating fast.

Good morning :) how are you?

I’m wonderful now that I’m talking to you. But I decided to reply with something less dorky.

I’m good. How about you? Did you get a good sleep?

I'm great :) and yeah, I did but then Ed woke me up at 6 when he went to check up on me and I couldn't go back to sleep after :( now I’m bored out of my mind.

I laughed at the text. Her and Ed seemed to have a strong friendship. I was kind of jealous of it but it was nice because they seem to really care about each other while, at the same time, they don’t go one day without annoying the other. They’re friendship was hilarious and amusing and unique.

Haha aww, I’m sorry. Why don’t you go out and go shopping or something?

I would but Ed is keeping me on house arrest. He’s working today and he won’t let me go out by myself.

My thumbs twiddled over the keyboard.

Would I sound desperate if I asked her if it was okay to go with her? I really wanted to hang out with her but we practically spent the whole day together. I don’t know if she’d want to spend two days in a row with me.

I decided to take the risk before I took a deep breath and sent a reply.

I can go with you if you want. I don’t have any plans today.

My heart increased speed as I waited for a reply. Seconds seemed like hours as I waited.

How about you just come over? We can watch movies and order food. Unless you wanted to go out then I’m okay with that :)

A huge smile appeared on my face as I read her message. I get to spend another day with her.

That’d be lovely. Yeah, we can just hang out there. Did you want me to go over now or is it too early?

I wanted to leave right this second but, again, I didn’t want to seem desperate.

No, any time’s fine. I just have to get ready but it won’t take me long. I’ll probably be done by the time you get here. Whenever you want to come over is fine with me.

I’ll definitely leave now.

Ok, I’ll head out now. I’ll text you when I’m there. See you soon :)

See you :)

I went to my room to quickly change before putting on some cologne. I brushed my teeth and put on my shoes before going into the kitchen to grab a banana.

I got into my car and drove to Ed’s place while I ate the banana.

I pulled into the visitor’s parking lot and parked my car before I quickly got out and went into the building.

I texted Lily that I was here and just as I was about to ring in Ed’s flat to get the door open, someone came out and held the door open for me. I thanked them and headed to the elevator. I got into the elevator and pressed the button for the top floor before I impatiently waited.

The second that the elevator door opened, I got out and walked up to Ed’s door. I took a deep breath and knocked on the door. I heard some scuffling on the other side, sounding like they were running around in a hurry. I smiled to myself, imagining Lily running around, trying to get ready.

A few seconds later, I heard footsteps coming closer to the door before it finally opened. I looked up at her as the door fully opened and I stopped breathing for a second.

After I composed myself, I gave her a smile.

She looked amazing today. I liked it when her hair was down and in loose waves, just like it was the first time I met her a couple of nights ago.

I didn’t realize I was staring at her until she cleared her throat.

“Um, come in,” she said.

I nodded before I walked in and slowly headed to the living room. I heard her close the front door and then her footsteps following after me.

I stopped in front of the couch and turned around facing her.

“So…” I said nervously.

She rolled her eyes and smiled at me. “Please don’t make this awkward. I’m awkward enough as it is.”

I just grinned at her, feeling less nervous already.

I have no idea why I was so nervous though. Last night, we were fine.

“Sorry. So what’d you wanna do?” I asked.

“Did you have breakfast?”

“I had a banana on the way here.”

“Harry! You should’ve eaten,” she laughed.

“Sorry. I was just excited to come here.”

Oh god, I sound lame.

“It’s okay. I can cook something for you.”

“You can cook?” I asked.

“Yes I can, thank you very much. I can make a great bowl of cereal.”

I laughed and she laughed along with me.

“That sounds delicious.”

“Okay, I’ll go make it for you. You can just wait and sit here if you like.”

“Okay.” I sat down after she turned around and went into the kitchen. I heard some clatter and the fridge being opened and closed a couple of times before Lily came back out and handed me the bowl of cereal. I took it from her before she sat down before me.

“This looks like it was difficult to make,” I teased, causing her to giggle.

“It was very hard work.”

I chuckled before taking a bite of the cereal.

“Did you want to watch a movie?” she asked.

“Sure,” I replied, making sure there was no food in my mouth.

She grabbed the remote and turned it on before browsing through Netflix.

“What’d you want to watch?” she asked.

“Anything’s fine.”

She went through the new movies before she stopped at one.

“How about the new Star Trek?” she asked.

“Sure, I heard it was good.”

“Okay.”

She started the movie and while it was loading, she went to the window and closed the blinds, making the room as dark as possible.

She went back to her seat before taking the blanket and covering herself. I finished my cereal so I put the bowl on the coffee table and sat more comfortably on the couch, leaning against the back.

I was surprised when she came closer to me and put half of the blanket over me. I smiled at her as I helped her fix it before she moved right beside me, our sides touching. She smiled back at me before she turned her attention back to the TV.

The movie started but I had a hard time concentrating since I was distracted with how close we were right now. About halfway into the movie, she pulled her knees up and leaned them on my leg as her feet were tucked into the couch.

At one point during the movie, she gasped when the main character died. She covered her mouth and kept saying that he can’t be dead.

“He’s the main character! How can he die? I hate this movie,” she said exasperatedly.

I held back my laughter at how animated she was about this movie. She was so into it. And here’s me, not paying attention to the movie but paying attention to every movement she made.

Near the end of the movie, the main character came back to life and she jumped in her seat.

“Yes! He’s alive! Okay, I don’t hate this movie anymore.”

This time, I couldn’t hold back my laughter. I started laughing at her she just looked at me, looking slightly embarrassed.

“Sorry. I tend to get emotionally attached to movies,” she explained.

“It’s okay. It’s not bad. I just find it slightly funny.”

She lightly slapped my arm before leaning back into the couch and turning her attention back to the movie.

Once the movie ended, she turned off the TV.

“That was such a good movie,” she said.

“Yeah, it was.”

“What was your favourite part?” she asked.

I suddenly got nervous. Since I wasn’t paying attention to the movie, I didn’t know what was happening half of the time.

“Oh. Um, you know…the part where he came back to life,” I answered. Truthfully, it was the only part I remembered, other than the part where he died.

“Same here! I was so glad that he came back to life,” she said. I relaxed a bit knowing she didn’t realize that that was the only part I knew.

“So, what should we do now?” I asked.

“I don't know actually. Do you have any ideas?”

I tried coming up with something to do and I started looking around the room to help me. My eyes landed on Ed’s guitar in the corner of the room and I immediately got an idea.

“Ed told me yesterday while you were out taking pictures at Hyde Park that you sing and play guitar.”

Her cheeks reddened and she ducked her head.

“Yeah, a bit.”

“What do you mean ‘a bit’? Ed told me it was a passion of yours.” I smiled at her.

She looked at me for a few seconds. “It is but…I can only sing and play when I’m alone. I get nervous when I sing in front of people.”

“Would you be nervous singing in front of me?”

She gave me a small smile. “Yeah. I only feel comfortable singing in front of Ed. He’s actually the one that inspired me to sing and learn guitar.”

“That’s great. But I’d love to hear you sometime. Ed told me you were really good. I even heard you singing a bit in the car the other day, I thought you were good.”

She blushed a bit as she looked down. “Thanks. Maybe I’ll play for you sometime. Maybe another time though.”

She looked up at me and I smiled at her. “Of course. Whenever you’re comfortable.”

She returned my smile with one of hers. “But you have to sing and play for me first.”

I laughed.

“Deal.”
