"if you only knew

the way I look

at you-

when you have your

back to me.

I smile wider than the

sky-

because I love you

endlessly."

( anonymous )

"In other news, playboy Harry Styles

was seen arriving at an apartment

complex two nights ago, and then was

seen leaving that morning, only to be

seen entering the same apartment

hours later. Has a lucky woman

finally tied down Mr. Styles, or is it

just another one of his flings? We'll

keep you posted."

Taking the remote off of Harry's lap I change the channel.

I glance over at him to see he's looking out the window. His eyes are full of pain, and his jaw is clenched.

Silently begging him to look over at me, I whisper too him,

"You know, last night I looked at you and I could feel it."

Still not looking.

"I could feel the warmth that filled my entire body."

Looking at him from the corner of my eye, I see he's looking down at his hands. I continue, this time talking louder.

"The kind that made my toes curl and the kind of feeling that circulated through my veins. I could feel myself blush from having all types of emotions running rampant against my skin."

He turned his body so he was facing me. Taking my hands in his he says to me,

"Keep going, please."

Smiling softly I continue, "The kind of feeling that made me want to scream all my worries and fears out so they have no way of finding their way back in."

Taking a deep breath I looked him in the eye,

"I looked at you and thought, this is how love is supposed to feel."

Not breaking eye contact, we simultaneously lean in towards each other.

Fluttering my eyelids closed, our lips meet, only for a second before Harry pulls away and says to me,

"Burgon, I like you."

"I like you too." I say before meeting our lips again.

Harry's POV

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

To be honest, that hurt. 'Playboy Harry Styles.'

I know it's nothing compared to what I have been called before, but I don't know why this one swam so deep.

I look out the window, trying to calm myself, when Burgon whispers to me,

"You know, last night I looked at you and I could feel it."

Wondering what she meant, I continue to look out the window.

"I could feel the warmth that filled my entire body."

Looking down at my hands, I ponder on last night.

After I laid her down, it took me a while to fall asleep.

I watched Burgon, her chest moving up and down with each breath she took.

I don't know how she does it. This girl, sleeping in front of me, no makeup, her crazy curly hair splayed over her face, but yet, she gives me a feeling.

One that I've never felt before with any other girl. Not any movie star, not anyone famous, but Burgon.

Interrupting my thoughts, she says to me, louder this time,

"The kind that made my toes curl and the kind of feeling that circulated through my veins. I could feel myself blush from having all types of emotions running rampant against my skin."

Turning my body towards her, I take her hands in mine. Drawing small shapes in her palms I beg,

"Keep going, please."

"The kind of feeling that made me want to scream all my worries and fears out so they have no way of finding their way back in."

Taking a deep breath, she looked up and met my eyes.

"I looked at you and thought, this is how love is supposed to feel."

Her saying this I remember why I was up all night.

That feeling, I wondered, is it love? if Burgon felt it too, does that mean..

I love Burgon.

I've known this girl for three weeks. Yet, I love her.

But I know she doesn't feel the same way. Burgon couldn't.

She doesn't understand. She told me herself, she can't love people.

Not realizing I was leaning forward until our lips meet, I pull away quickly.

Whispering to her, I say,

"Burgon, I like you."

"I like you too." she whispers before reconnecting our lips.
