He was a boy, she was a girl, can I make it anymore obvious?
He was a punk, and she did ballet, what more can I say?


4. 4. Doing it for myself.

Melanie's P.O.V

Weeks and months went, where Harry and I met at the tree house, Austin raping me at his place, Lilly and Trisha thinking I’m fine, my parents yelling at me and me constantly telling lies.

But Lilly and Trisha has been more suspicious about me and Harry, we can’t even make eye contact without them asking me these questions like if we have anything going on. Harry and I have been meeting each other in secret for about three months now.

I was standing in the hallway with Lilly and Trisha, “I heard skaterboy has got a tattoo.” Lilly started.

“He’s the first guy in our age getting a tattoo.” Trisha continued.

“What a punk, he’s going to shoot people when he gets older.” Lilly said rolling her eyes.

I looked up and spotted Harry nodding his head at me before walking out the front door.

“Excuse me.” I told Lilly and Trisha before following Harry out of school.

I met him in the tree house where I saw his skateboard in the corner and him sitting on the floor with a guitar in his arms, “You play?” I asked sitting down on the floor.

“I do.” He smirked, “And I wanna play for you.”

“For me?” I asked as I spotted the tattoo Lilly and Trisha were talking about on his arm.

It was a huge rose, which looked awesome. Harry started to play on his guitar, it sounded beautiful. I watched his hands gently touching the guitar. But then he started to sing, and my eyes widened. His voice was beautiful, he sounded like an angel as he sang the lyrics to ‘The One You Love’ by Passenger.

We’re all looking,
That’s what she said,
For someone to share our thoughts,
For someone to share our beds.

But if you find someone that doesn’t try to change you,
If you find someone that doesn’t have to blame you,
If you find someone you don’t need to explain to,
You’ve found the one you love.”

He sang the song finished and placed the guitar to the side, I leaned in and kissed his lips, “Your voice is amazing, why aren’t you famous yet?” I asked as he laughed.

“Because I’m a coward.” He chuckled.

“No you aren’t.” I told him.

“I don’t know, I’ve thought about signing up for X-factor or something, but I just don’t have the guts to do it.” He spoke.

“You’re one of the bravest people I know, Harry. If it’s anything you can do, it’s signing up for X-factor, because I know you’ll win.” I told him.

“Yeah.” He sighed, “But Mel?”

“Yes?” I asked.

“How long will this be a secret?” He asked.

“What?” I asked.

“Us, when are you going to break up with Austin? And tell Lilly and Trisha that we’re seeing each other. Are you embarrassed to go out with me?” He asked.

“No of course not, it’s just that my reputation is being that girl a guy like Austin can get and a boy like you can’t.” I told him, “But I’ll tell them. Alright?”

“You promise?” He asked.

"I promise." I smiled.


I stepped into school and walked over to Lilly and Trisha, getting more and more scared to tell them that I’m in love with Harry.

“Lilly? Trisha?” I started as they paid attention to me.

“Yes?” They replied.

“You know Harry, right?” I asked.

“That skater douche? Yes we know who he is.” Lilly said.

“Have you guys ever thought about dating him? Like... Just thought about it?” I asked as they both looked at me like I was crazy.

Then they bursted into laughter, “Yeah right, you’re not thinking about ditching Austin for him?” Trisha laughed.

“N-no, of course not.” I said with a fake laugh.

Suddenly Harry came up to us, “You told them?” He asked me.

“Listen skaterboy, stop bothering Mel, okay? She’s with a senior student and doesn’t have any time to waste on you. Tell him Mel.” Lilly said as they all looked at me.

“Y-yeah!” I said looking over at Harry.

“Melanie…” He whispered furrowing his eyebrows at me.

“Don’t ‘Melanie’ me jerk. I’m with Austin and you can just walk away.” I told him.

“And we know you like her, but she have no such feelings for you anyway, and she will never have!” Trisha spoke snapping her fingers at him.

“But…” He said.

“Come on, Mel. Tell him!” Lilly said bumping into my shoulder.

“That’s right, just take your stupid skateboard and walk away with your stupid ass friends.” I told him as a lot of people gathered around us.

“You really mean that?” He asked as I got really bad feeling inside of me.

“Uhm…” I whispered looking over at Lilly and Trish who were waiting for me to tell him off.

“Of course I mean that you fool, I don’t know what you imagine at night, thinking about me and God knows what you’re doing with your little thingy.” I said pointing at his private area pretending to be disgusted as the people around us laughed, “Now go away, I don’t even wanna be near you… Skaterboy.” I said as his eyes got filled with tears. Fuck. What am I doing for my reputation to be on top?

“Fine.” He said, his eyes were all red as he pushed through the crowd and left school.


The next day, Harry was nowhere to be seen, nor was his friends. I walked into class and sat down, the seats behind me was empty, Lilly and Trisha sat down at the desks next to me.

“You really got him there yesterday, he’s probably embarrassed to come to school today.” Lilly giggled.

“Yeah.” I said with a fake laugh.


It’s been a week, and Harry and his friends has been nowhere to be seen, people have been making up some rumors about them joining a gang, or dealing drugs. But I know they’re all false, I just don’t know where he is. He won’t even pick up his phone when I’m calling him.
