The Irresistible Jerk

Genesis was warned to stay away from Harry. She knew he was trouble but she knew there was a softer side to him, not just his bad boy reputation. He was dangerous, threatening, but he cared. Harry wasn't exactly the type she usually went for but he wouldn't stay away. She was his and there was no way of escaping. But he was just an irresistible jerk.

Chapter Five : "End Of The Day"

Genesis' POV

'Jay, I know we're not that close, but do you think I could ask you for advice? I feel like .. I can talk to you.' I write down on a scrap piece of paper. I fold it up and climb off of my bed, heading into the hallway and down the stairs. It had been a week since the Harry / Mackenzie confrontation and Harry hadn't been around since then. I'd barely seen him unless he came over to pick up Louis.

 

I head into the kitchen only to find that Jay wasnt there. I needed her advice. Like I said, I hadn't seen Harry in a week and though I should be happy about it, I feel kinda .. down. I miss his presence even if all he ever did was harass me. I would ask Louis for advice but he'd been ignoring me too. Besides a few glances and simple 'good morning's' Louis would generally stay locked up in his room or out partying all night with Harry. There was no in between. It really bummed me out, but at least I had Niall to talk to. Since our little meeting in Biology Class, me and him have really hit it off. I think I would even go as far as calling us 'friends.' 

 

"Hey my little star, what are you up to?" Johannah asks, snapping me from my thoughts. I turn around quickly to face her, a small smile making it's way to my face. I go to hand her the paper before it's suddenly snatched from my hands.

 

"I feel like I can talk to you," his voice says. I close my eyes, bracing myself for the other load of insults. "Funny, because last I checked you can't talk at all." Harry finishes. What is he doing here?

 

"Harry!" Johannah exclaims smacking him lightly on the arm. "That's extremely rude, apologize!" I bow my head down, snatching the paper back from Harry's hand and turning around, running back up the stairs. 

 

Just as i'm about to enter my room, I see Louis standing outside of his door with a disapproving look. "I told you to stay away from him."

 

"L-Lou-Lou-" I try to stutter out. I want to talk to him. I want to understand why he's being so distant.

 

"Save it," He says. "I warned you. I didnt want another one my sister's falling from him and meeting that same exact fate. Why couldn't you just listen?" 

 

another sister? what is he talking about? As far as I'm concerned, I'm the only sister he has..

 

"Wh-What?" I manage to get out. What sister is he talking about and what exactly happened to her? Louis' gaze meets mine and his eyes soften a bit before he glances at something behind me and returns to his cold stare. I suddenly felt a presence stand directly behind me, so close that the hairs on my neck began to raise. I know it was Harry. He had a way of butting in at the most untimely moments.

 

"Forget it, Gen. It appears as though you have a visitor." He replies harshly before stepping into his room and slamming the door closed. I shut my eyes, feeling emotions and tears begin to bubble up inside of me. I had only been here for a little over a week and already my only other sibling hates me, his friend terrorizes me, and I have an enemy at school. How fantastic.

 

"Woah, he seemed pretty pissed at you." Harry says with a smirk. He moves from behind me to standing directly in front of me, his eyes boring into mine. I shift uncomfortably, directing my gaze down at the floor.

 

"Have-Haven't y-you done e-en-enough?" I spit out at him. I turn on my heel to go, but not before Harry manages to grab my arm and pull me back to him. I don't dare look at him. I don't want to. I just want to talk to Jay, or hang out with Niall and forget this whole thing ever happened. 

 

"Listen, Genesis," He begins. There's a long pause and I brace myself for the worst. "Maybe he's right. Maybe you should stay away from me." my eyelids shoot open and I stare up at him at disbelief.

 

Are you fucking kidding me? That's what I've been doing! I don't want anything to do with you and your patronizing words that you hurl at me every single time we talk. I don't even-

 

"Hey .. Harry?" Saved by the bell. "Why are you holding her like that?" Jay questions once again. Harry immediately drops my arm and glances at me before quietly entering Louis' room and shutting the door.

 

"Now, judging by this note that Harry snatched from your hand downstairs, you wanted to talk to me?" I nod, still kinda shaken up from what just happened. Johannah puts her hand on my shoulder and guides me into my room. I had finally managed to decorate it to my liking by adding pictures of a few girls from the orphange as well as m favorite singers and little quotes. To top it all off, I added Christmas lights. I sigh quietly as she closes the door and locks it to prevent Harry or anyone else for that matter, from coming in.


"What's bothering you, little star?" She asks, a slight smile on her face. I peer up at her, taking in her features. She looked young, her eyes looked as though they held millions of stories and nothing but proudness and love for Louis, Harry and I. Though Harry wasn't her son, she treated him as if he were and knew it. Her brown hair that louis inhabited from her cascaded in waves onto on her shoulders. Her lips were pulled into a genuine smile and I couldn't help but feel lucky to call this woman my foster mom.

 

I grabbed my notebook from the side of the bed and began to write down as much as I can, even including the things that just happened. Johannah sits patiently and waits for me to finish.

 

well, when I first met Louis, he seemed so nice and kind. as though he would protect me from any and everything. Now, it's as if i'm some strawberry flavored bubble gum that he stepped on and that's now stuck on the bottom of his shoe. I cant help but feel like it's my fault. He told me to stay away from Harry, and what did I do? I somehow got myself entwined in some sort of web with him. My only friend is his friend, my only sibling is his friend, he's always either at school or here so it's not like I can really catch a break from him. I'm trying. Louis barely utter a word to me and Harry is always harassing me.. I just don't know what to do. Just now, Louis told me he didn't want me to suffer the same fate as his other sister.. I didn't even know he had another. I just feel like dog poo, Jay.

 

Jay takes the paper from my hands once she notices Im done writing and reads over it. As she does I hear a few muffled voices coming from Louis' room next door followed by a slam. "Sorry mum!" Louis' voice yells.

 

Me and Jay exchange glances before she clears her throat and says, "Louis is just doing what he thinks is best. He had a younger sister named Charlotte, Lottie for short. She was kinda like you .. short, quiet, beautiful eyes and long hair.. and just like you, she got attached to Harry," 

 

"I-I d-don't-"  I go to interrupt her but she stops me, a sad smile now taking over her features. She takes my hand in hers before continuing.

 

"You are. Don't deny it, I can see it. You had the same look in your eyes that Charlotte did. Harry had an eye for her, he got close to her and soon all he would talk about was how much he loved her. Then one day .. he broke her heart. She never told us how or what happened and neither did he. All I know is she packed up her bags and moved to America with her father, and Harry turned cold like he is now. He wasn't always this way .. but the day she left something in him turned. Louis was so close with her and the thought of getting another sister thrilled him. He just .. doesn't want you ending up going to back to the foster system because of Harry."

 

I'm speechless .. which is ironic because i'm mute and literally speechless. Ha. I never knew Lou had another sister, and it was hard for me to imagine Harry as  .. nice. It seems like every word that comes out of his mouth is an insult towards me.

 

I look back up at Jay only to see that she's now standing by the door a bright smile beaming on her face. "I advise you to talk to Louis and Harry.. separately of course. Get on both of their good sides. I have faith in you, little star. You'll do the right thing." and with that being said, she shoots me a wink and steps out of my room, closing the door behind her before I hear a muffled "What did you break, Louis?" 

 

I sigh quietly and lay back on my bed, fluttering my eyes closed. I only hope she's right. I only hope that I do the right thing. That's if I muster up the courage to talk to Louis and Harry. Just then, my bedroom door creaks open and he clears his voice before saying,

 

"Hey, we need to talk."
