I couldn't sleep at all. The thought that my best childhood friend could potentially like me makes me get the shivers. Even if he is in the top 10 hottest guys on earth; I just don't have those feelings for him. He was too late. I liked him ages ago. Before he was famous. Before everything. He just didn't like me.
As I just sit on my couch in my pretty old apartment I can't reach the thought of the subject. Should I bring it up to him?
My phone vibrated.
Can I come over? -Harold
He wanted to come over. Why would he?
Why what's up? - Tobi
I wanted some info first.
Long time no see :) -Harold
It's been 1 day :P -Tobi
U don't want me to come over? -Harold
Oh no. Is it that obvious.
No way. Ur my best friend Harry ofc I want u to come over. -Tobi
That was a bad move!
Awesome! I'll b there in 5. -Harold
This should be interesting. I don't even know what I will say to him let alone react when I see him.
I start making some coffee. It may keep me sane long enough to withstand this question.
I'm kind of nervous. She is the first girl that actually ever makes me feel like this. Ever. She has an amazing smile and don't get me started on her personality. It's incredible. Bubbly but shy and insecure. It makes me want to protect her and keep her happy. I would do anything for her.
I snap out of my thoughts as the girl of my dreams stands in front of me.
"Ah come in" she says as her glowing eyes died down. Was something wrong?
I walk into her brightly yet calm apartment filled with drawings and pictures followed by a memory time line. The first day I met her. Year 7. We were study partners in history; we both sucked at it and loved to draw all over the historic people in our books. We would fail together and always go through detention together. I guess we became friends then. She lived two houses down from me so our parents were good friends too. By year 9 I had a girlfriend and when I had troubles I would ask for Tobi's help, she was really good like that but she always tried to change the subject every time I bought it up. All I know is that she never had a boyfriend in high school no matter how many times I tried to hook her up with one of my friends she would reject each one of them. You wouldn't believe it but Tobi was the one that put me into the X factor. She met all the boys and hang around with us a lot. It was great fun and Niall really liked her. Maybe a bit too much, but Niall was never good with girls so he didn't have the guts to ask her out. One Direction became really successful which was great but we weren't seen together as much because Tobi was scared of the press. Lately over the past year we have become really good friends again and Tobi is really happy to be in the publicity to promote her business for photography which I am glad I can help her with. She deserves it.
We sat down on the couch.
"Do you want something to drink?" She asked not making eye contact.
"Is something wrong?" I had to ask.
"... Why do you ask?" She finally makes eye contact.
"You aren't yourself"
"People change Harry." She replied sharply.
"Not in one day..."
We didn't speak for a moment.
"Look Tobi, I really care about you-"
"Yeh, a lot of people have told me that." She said cutting me off. What does she mean by that?
"I was with Kelly last night." She quietly spoke.
"Did you have a fight?"
"No no no nothing like that," she turned and looked at me, "she told me that you liked me more then just a friend."
Was it that obvious. I mean I was flirting with her but how did Kelly realise and not her?
"Why did she think that?" I looked down at my knees. Did she want me to like her?
"I didn't really believe her so I didn't listen. Is it true?"
"Yes. I like you. I thought you knew" I replied quite confused.
"Harry, I'm sorry I didn't realise but I don't feel that way about you."
Hearing her say it in person broke my heart. To finally know the complete answer.
"I'm really sorry" She repeated.
I put my head up.
"It's ok. I just thought I could win you over some how." I questioned.
She leans her head to the side.
"I'm sorry, you should probably go; I have work to do" she said standing up.
I knew she was lying. You can just tell by the way she hides her face. I left anyway.
