Chapter 10

Hi guys! Sorry for keeping you waiting! Here the chapter is finally! :) enjoy!

Reagan's POV:

'No!' I jerk awake finding myself in Harry's lap. 'You okay?' He starts stroking my hair, I love how gently he does it. Stop liking it Reagan! 'What am I gonna do Harry?' Sitting up I place my legs in his lap, 'I don't know Regs, we'll fix it okay?' He replies. I nod. I wonder what is happening with my mom right now?

Oh god, my mom is probably going to end up in jail.. I have to do something, but I don't know what.. My head rest in my hands and I feel warm tears streaming down my cheeks. Now Harry has seen me crying like an idiot twice. Why do I always show him my vulnerable side?

I have to call my mom and find out if she's okay.. But I don't really know what to say to her without freaking out and cursing. 'Harry could you talk to my mom for me? I don't think I can handle talking to her without yelling' I look at him for a second.

His eyes are so easy to get lost in, they're so deep and honest. Why is it that I can't get myself to actually admit that I like him? It's just so hard, it shouldn't be though.. Stating your feelings should be simple but feelings or for that matter love, is never simple. At least not with me.

'Sure I will' Harry smiles leaving me a tiny bit breathless. I nod giving him a small kiss on the cheek, I can see him blushing, it's cute. I dial the number to my mom and hand him the phone.

'Hello, is this Mrs. James?' Harry looks nervous as he glances at me. I put a hand on his shoulder to calm him down. 'This is Harry, a friend of Reagan's. Oh you're a police officer? Okay where is Mrs. James?'

'Okay sir, thank you, please tell her that I called' Harry hangs up the phone with a strange look on his face. 'What did he say?'

'Reagan.. Your mom has been taken into custody, and right now they are preparing a trial against her. She will need a good lawyer, and she'll be lucky if she gets less than 2 years in jail. She will also have to pay a fine about 10.000 pounds' Harry speaks softly, everything he tells me doesn't seem real.

Why did this have to happen to my mother? More tears are pushing and I can't find any air to breathe. 'Harry, what am I gonna do? I have to tell Mikey' sniffles fill the room and I search for tissue to dry my eyes and nose.

Suddenly my phone rings, I quickly pick it up seeing it's Mikey. 'Reagan where the hell are you!' Michael yells into the phone making me cry even more. 'Sorry Mikey, I'm with Harry in their bus. I needed some air that's why I went outside and Harry was there too. Mikey, my mom is going to jail..' silent sobs escape my mouth.

'Fuck Reagan I'm sorry! I'll be right there' Michael hangs up the phone and two seconds after he flies through the bus door towards me. 'Reagan!' He immediately sits down beside me hugging me tightly as I cry endlessly.

'I don't know what to do Mikey..'

'I know, it's okay Reagan. Just let it all out I'm here for you, all the boys are here for you.' Michael is stroking my hair softly, giving me soft kisses on the forehead.

"Thanks Michael" I dry my eyes with the tip of his shirt. Harry looks at me with sadness, he has really helped when I needed it the most. I'm actually glad I've gotten to know him over the past few days.

'Reagan we will help and stand by you through this okay?' Harry sits down next to Michael and I with a sympathetic look on his very gorgeous face. 'Thanks Harry' I put my hand on his shoulder wryly smiling at him.

Harry is so comforting to have by my side, he makes me less sad and nervous. 'Come on Reagan lets go back to the bus, we will be going to our next destination soon' Michael takes my hand and leads me out of the bus. I look back at Harry who gives me a comforting smile; I can't really take my eyes off of him, I want to stay with him but I just follow Michael.

'What's wrong?' Ashton meet us when we enter the bus. I tell the guys everything and they're hugging and telling me they will support me and help me as much as they can.

'Thanks guys, you're the best' I say forcing a smile. 'It's okay' Luke states softly. I keep hugging the guys and let out occasional sobs.


A few hours later my phone then decides to ring, I haven't seen the caller id before but answer it anyway. 'Hello?'

'Hi love, it's Harry. Mikey gave me your number, I just wanted to know how you were doing?' Hearing Harry's sweet voice makes my heart beat faster. He really is sweet, checking on me.

'Hi Harry, I'm okay I guess. Thank you for asking..' I mutter through the phone.


There's an awkward silence for a minute, Harry then clears his throat 'Regs? I'm not just saying this to you because of what you're going trough, but I'll always be there for you, if you're ever sad, please come to me and I will make you feel better. I mean it Reagan I really do, I like you a lot and you're worth every second!'

He just made breathless and speechless at the same time. I must have looked at bit weird because suddenly Michael sits down beside me 'What's wrong? Who is it?'

'It's Harry..' I whisper with widened eyes.

'Ooh..' Michael says and walks over to another corner of the bus.

'Harry.. Thank you. I don't understand why you like me I really don't, I mean I haven't exactly been the nicest person towards you.. But somehow I actually like you a lot as well' the words find their way out of my mouth, it doesn't even feel like it's me saying those words.

Silence then passes through the phoneline, I can hear Harry breathe slowly 'Ahem, are you saying that you..' Am I making Harry Styles nervous? 'Yes Harry I actually like you'

When I say it out loud Michael, Luke, Calum and Ashton all look at me like I have a nose on my forehead. Then they start to make pouty faces and form hearts in the air. 'Stop it you guys!' I annoyingly throw my slipper after them.

'Reagan's in looove!!' Calum pouts making me blush slightly. 'Shut up!' I scoff. 'Uhm Reagan hello? Are you still there?' Harry's voice rings through the phone. 'Sorry, the boys were just being children for a second' I give them all evil glares.

'Haha okay.' Harry trails off. 'Thanks Harry I'll call you later okay?'

I hang up the phone thinking about what I just told Harry. I actually like Harry Styles, and God knows why, but I do.

Sorry for the long wait guys! Hope you liked it :)
