I turned around slowly.
"E-Erin?" I stuttered shocked. I'd never thought I'd ever see her again but here she was in front of me.
Erin smiled a horrible smile as she flicked some of her bleach blonde hair over her shoulder, with her red finger nailed fingers.
"Hey Annie!" she trilled in a sickly voice which I had to try hard not to cringe or grimace at.
"What are you doing here?" I asked trying not to sound rude.
Erin had been Harry's old girlfriend but had dumped Harry two years ago. Why was she suddenly here now? And how on earth did she find us?
"Harry and me have been in contact this past month, didn't you know?" she asked, and she pulled a fake concerned face that I didn't know this information.
I shook my head, as she grinned at me as though I was something disgusting. I grinned back in the same way. I knew what a evil person she really was, just seeing her made me angry and her fake nice image was a complete opposite to the person inside.
"But, I ask again, what are you doing here? Harry never wants to see you again" I told her bitterly as I then began to walk back to the house angrily away from her.
I could hear her following which only made me feel even more angry
"Well you see, we're back together" she explained to answer my question. I stopped so abruptly she walked into me.
I couldn't even keep the anger out of my voice this time. She giggled at me in that sweet laugh girly laugh which only set my teeth on edge.
"Sure, that's right. I asked whether I could come visit and he said yes" she told me, smiling again in a sickly way.
The look on her face revolted me. Why was Harry even letting her come here, more to the point, why were they even back together? She broke his heart, why was Harry accepting her again?
I started walking again, rushing to the door. I needed some explaining and I needed it now.
When I got inside, Erin had followed me in without invitation. I really felt like pushing that cow back out again and slamming the door in her face but I didn't. Instead I pulled off my shoes, keeping my (well Liam's) hoodie on.
"Harold Edward Styles" I yelled up the stairs as I stomped to the bottom of them.
Instead of Harry I got Louis who looked messy haired and was squinting at me as he stumbled down the stairs.
"Don't shout" he rasped at me, rubbing his head but no matter how hung over he was he still managed to smile. He gave me a curious look as he took in my angry look. "Why you angry?"
But that was when he caught sight of Erin and suddenly he seemed perfectly over any hung over phase. He walked over to her extending his hand, and grinning at her flirtatiously.
"Hey there babe, I'm Louis" he introduced himself. "Are you one of Annie's friends?"
I nearly gagged. Erin and I friends, I'd never heard something as unlikely and disgusting in all my life. She was a horrible girl, totally different from me and plus she dumped Harry heartlessly so I had to have a grudge on her naturally.
Erin giggled girlishly, shaking his hand and pretending to blush. "I'm Erin, Harry's girlfriend actually."
Louis looked stumped, and looked round at me for some kind of explanation. I was too busy glaring at Erin to acknowledge him though or answer him. She smiled at me and I smiled back but it was a smile which she and I both knew was something far from nice.
"Where is your so called boy friend?" I snapped at her before shouting again up the stairs "Harry get your bum down here now!"
Finally Harry emerged followed by Zayn, Niall and Liam all who were looking confused, Liam and Zayn complaining at me for shouting. I ignored them however and as soon as Harry was down the stairs I asked him as I pointed over my shoulder at Erin "care to explain?"
He didn't say anything, not even looking at me and just walking round me towards Erin.
"Harry" I snapped again but he didn't listen.
Everyone was staring from me to Harry and to Erin.
I glared at Erin as she hugged Harry and they started kissing right there in the hall in front of us all. I turned away disgusted crossing my arms over my chest disgruntled.
"What the f**k is happening?" Zayn was the one to ask, and he was looking completely baffled.
"That's what I'd like to know" I said and finally decided to swiftly walk over to Harry and grabbed his arm, detaching him from Erin's face.
I stared up at him, cocking an eyebrow at him. "You better have a good explanation for this."
He didn't say anything, his face quite expressionless as he shrugged. He then said toward both me and Erin "why don't you girls go into the lounge, we'll be through in a minute?"
"Fine" I snapped then stalked off towards the lounge, Erin following me. I wanted answers.
When we got to the lounge I turned abruptly towards her, glaring at her.
"What the hell do you think you're doing?" I demanded to know of her as she smirked down at me.
"Oh, nothing, you know me" Erin replied dismissively with a shrug.
"Yes, I do know you" I snapped, flaring up. "Which leads me to this question - why the hell are you here and why the hell do you think I'm going to believe that your all innocent now?"
"Oh Annie" she said airily back, looking like she was trying to be friendly but I knew she wasn't.
She smiled wickedly as she inspected the nails on her fingers.
I was feeling angrier and angrier by the second waiting for her to talk on.
Then she did. "There comes a time in a girls life where they have to settle down, and if they can't have the boy their heart desire they might as well get a man who will look good by their side. Almost like a sort of trophy."
Suddenly I couldn't control myself. She couldn't just use Harry like that, just because he would look good as her boyfriend being famous an all. How dare she?
I struck her round the face with a shriek. She screamed, and flared up slapping me back making my cheek sting painfully. I yelled, and before I knew it we were screaming at each other, pulling each others hair, scratching and slapping each other both completely distraught.
"Stop!" I heard Harry yell but I didn't. I was too angry.
Someone one was pulling me back, I tried to break free again lashing out but whoever was holding me back was too strong. I glared at Erin with such hatred as she fake burst into tears as Harry comforted her. She made me sick, this was all a pathetic act and I for one was not taking it.
"Calm down Annie" I heard Liam's soothing voice and I realised them to be his arms restricting me.
"No, I will not calm down" I shrieked and tried to charge at her again but being me I was too weak to get free. "She's a bloody b***h!"
"Whoa, someone's angry" I heard Louis say chuckling and I turned my head, shooting him a fierce look.
"Shut It!" I snapped at him and he just smirked.
"Someone's a lil' bit feisty" he replied, still smirking at me.
I ignored him trying to struggle free from Liam's arms again.
"Let go of me" I screamed but he did the exact opposite holding onto me tighter.
"Calm down" he told me again. How was that supposed to help?
He started pulling me backwards, back out of the room. I tried resisting with all my might but I couldn't and finally when we were past the door I stopped struggling and allowed him to pull me to the kitchen, breathing heavily.
When we got to the kitchen, Louis, Niall and Zayn all following, I wrenched myself from Liam and started pacing the room aggravated.
"Do you not know who that girl is?" I demanded to know of them.
Liam shrugged. "Harry's girlfriend it looks like it."
I made an aggravated noise, which I heard Louis chuckle at which only caused me to glare at him. He raised his hands in surrender and muttered "sorry."
"She is the most evil girl on the plant, that's who she is" I told them, feeling like tearing my hair out because of how much anger I had in me right now.
"She must be pretty bad if you're saying that" Liam mused.
I nodded. "Yes, she is bad, and I don't know why the hell they are back together" I vented, chucking myself down in a chair for something to do getting annoyed with my own pacing.
"What exactly happened between those two then?" asked Zayn as the rest of them sat down to as though me sitting down was their signal to do it to.
I sighed, trying to calm myself down. "A lot of stuff" I replied "I don't think I should say, I don't think he'd like he telling you."
"Oh, is it that bad, naughty Harry." Louis sniggered smirking.
"No" I snapped at him "not in that way, just... grrr, just shut up."
He grinned at me still saying "alright, alright, don't kill me" as he surrendered his hands again.
"Well give us a rough idea" Liam suggested.
I sighed. "Fine, she dumped him and it broke his heart" I explained.
"Ha, Harry got dumped" Louis said, still smirking as usual.
"Don't be so insensitive" I snapped at him. "He was really upset."
"Yeah, sorry, poor Harry" Louis changed his tone but I could still see he was amused to.
"Just don't tell him I said that, I don't think he'd like it" I told them.
They all nodded.
I rubbed my eyes. "I just... I don't get it" I said exasperated and confused after some moments of frustrated silence. "Why would he accept her again?"
"Who knows?" Zayn replied, leaning on the table and shrugging.
I sighed, crossing my arms over my chest and staring moodily at the floor.
Suddenly Liam spoke up. "You don't think it could be to get back at us?"
I looked round at him, frowning. "What do you mean?"
Liam looked awkward. "I mean, the rules and stuff, maybe this is just a strange way to get back at me for it."
"But It doesn't effect you. He knows I hate her so if anything it's..." I stopped suddenly trailing off. I couldn't believe this. This would exactly be the stupid thing Harry would do to get back at me. Liam was right.
I suddenly stood up abruptly and the chair I had been sitting on fell over backwards, clattering onto the kitchen floor. The boys were all staring at me as I stood there not quite sure what to do. I was shocked, angry, annoyed, upset and frustrated all at once, I didn't really know what expression to use.
"Annie..." Liam started gently but I waved my hand at him to make him stop.
"He's a f*****g idiot" I yelled before without really completely knowing what I was doing running from the room, grabbing my shoes, pulling them on and hauling open the door.
The others were chasing after me as I ran out of the house onto the beach, my feet pounding down onto the sand.
I was feeling completely offended and angry. Why would Harry do that? It was a pretty stupid and strange way to get back at me but it still hurt that he would do such a thing. Why else would he get back with Erin? He was doing it to get back at me and Liam for the whole breaking the rules thing.
I felt like yelling my head off, or punching someone, I was so annoyed but all I did was continue to run the others shouting after me. I ignored them all and ran faster, except being me I've never been good at running fast my feet got all confused. I lost my footing, tripping myself up and falling painfully onto the floor, my head spinning and my ankle painful contorting into a weird position.
It was a few seconds before I could make sense of what was going on. I could hardly breath, as I pushed myself up into a sitting position, my eyes all blurry as I tried to clear the dizziness. I spat out sand disgustingly my head still spinning fast.
I could hear the boys yelling as they caught up with me, Liam the first to fling himself down on the floor next to me looking panicked.
"Annie, are you okay? Oh my god, are you hurt?" he asked quickly sounding like he was about to faint with panic.
I blinked, feeling pain in my ankle but not wanting to worry anyone.
"I'm f-fine" I stuttered, my voice quiet as I rubbed my eyes, them finally focusing properly again.
"Are you sure?" asked Liam.
I nodded but he still looked worried. "I'm fine Liam, really, I just twisted my ankle."
He suddenly looked scared, grabbing my ankle as though that was going to make it better.
"Ouch" I squeaked, and he let go, putting it down carefully again.
"Sorry" he apologized quickly, biting his lip.
"It's okay, just help me up" I ordered. He nodded, standing up and offering his hands.
I took them and allowed myself to be helped up, wincing as I tried to put my weight on it.
"Can you walk?" he questioned.
"Yeah" I replied and tried to step forward but pain shot through my ankle and I nearly toppled over, my eyes stinging with tears suddenly. I swore under my breath.
"Niall help me" Liam ordered and Niall came rushing over as Liam put one arm around my waist and put my arm over his shoulder. Niall did the same but on the other side supporting me as we then began to walk back off towards the house.
It was painful trying to walk but I managed it with the help of Liam and Niall, and I couldn't help but feel slightly flustered all of a sudden. Well it wasn't everyday you had two boys with their arms round you was it?
When we got closer to the house and were about to go through the door, it burst open and Erin strutted out. She caught a sight of me yelled "you're a bloody freak!" Turned back around and slapped Harry hard in the face who was stood in the doorway. He yelled out in pain as he clutched his face and I felt anger rise up in me.
"I suggest you get out of here Erin before something drastic happens to your face." I tried to act as calm as I could but my voice was punctuated by a harsh bitter tone.
She glared at me. "Fine b***h, I have no pleasure In being here anyway." And then before anyone could stop her or I could argue back she'd flounced of round the building no doubt to get back in the car from which she had come in.
I felt like following her and screaming at her but restricted myself as I looked at Harry who was rubbing his face. He caught sight of me and then mumbled "I've been such an idiot, I'm sorry."
"You're always an idiot" I commented with a sad smile, before hobbling towards him and hugging him.
He hugged me back and whispered "I'm so sorry Annie."
I didn't say anything, I don't think I really knew what to say, I felt it best to not say anything at all. It was better that way. I just hugged him, that's all I could do right now. I had no words, I was too tired to and plus I didn't want to get more confused or anything else to get messed up. I just wanted to stay in this moment, silent forever but I knew that the moment would end.
But it ended in an unexpected way as I heard Louis say sounding amused and happy "huggles" and before we knew it we were all hugging Harry as a big group, hugging each other, all six of us, together.
