It was Friday morning and I was back at work, in a bad mood. I sat at my desk, fiddling with my pen, unable to concentrate on my work. Why was I so affected by this? I hadn't heard from Harry in a week, no explanation or anything. I actually knew why this was getting to me so much, because knowing he wants nothing to do with me made me realise how much I actually liked him. I thought he knew that, but obviously I didn't show it as well as he did. I was confused and annoyed - we both admitted that we liked each other, so why did Harry take off? I sighed as my thoughts we interrupted my Lily waving a document in front of my face. "Hey, are you okay? You seem to be a bit..preoccupied" She asked me quietly. I had phoned her to fill her briefly in on the Harry details but she must have forgotten. "Yeah i'm fine, just..you know..Harry stuff" I replied with a small smile. I needed to get over this, Harry said we shouldn't see other so I needed to get used to that. "Hey, why don't we go out tonight? Get your mind off..things" Lily called over, cautious of our nosey colleagues. I paused for a moment, pondering. "Yeah, that would be really great" I said. A night out with my best friend is exactly what I needed.
We both finished work at 6, and I was going round Lily's before we went out so we could catch a cab together. I went home and got ready, taking extra care with my makeup and hair. I felt like I needed to put in a good effort. I needed a pick-me-up, and wanted to get in a better mood so I had treated myself to a new outfit which I had bought a while ago and forgot I hadn't worn. I slipped on my black high waisted jeans with a burgundy lace crop top. I put on some black heels and grabbed my favourite clutch before quickly reapplying my lipstick and heading out the door. I walked to Lily's apartment as it only took about 5 minutes if I walked quickly. I knocked on the clean white door and heard her call from inside "Just a minute". I shifted my weight from foot to foot before the door finally opened. "Hey sorry, was just finishing up getting ready!" Lily grinned as she let me in. "That's okay" I replied, placing my clutch on the hallway table. I walked into the living room to find an unexpected guest. "Hey Cara! I was just going" Niall stood there a tad awkwardly, smiling at me. I saw Lily hiding her face with her hair, smiling as she pretended to look in her bag. "O-oh, hi Niall, didn't expect to see you here!" I spluttered out. "Yeah well, as I said i'm gonna go and leave you girls to it!" He said quickly as he picked up his jacket. He turned just as he was about to leave the room. "Oh Cara, what's going on with you and Harry? He's been really down this week" Niall inquired me. "I-I-um" I didn't know what to tell him. "They're just having a few difficulties, it's fine!" Lily intervened for me. "Oh okay, well see you soon!" Niall smiled and left. "Lily!" I spun around grinning. "Why didn't you tell me?! Are you dating? What's going on?!" I interrogated her immediately. "We've just seen each other a few times..nothing big" She smirked, with a slight blush. "You so like him!!" I teased her. "No no...okay yes! He's so lovely and funny Cara" She giggled like a schoolgirl. "Wait wait, why didn't you tell me?" I asked, a bit hurt. "I was going to honestly! I just knew you were going through a lot with Harry so I didn't want to add to the drama you know?" She said honestly. I nodded smiling. "Well i'm happy for you" I told her as we turned to leave her apartment. I couldn't help but feel a pang of sadness, as I thought of Harry and how I wish we we're still seeing each other.
We got to the club and ordered some drinks, before finding a small seating area in the corner. "So, tell me everything in detail about you and Harry" She asked, before sipping her drink. By the time I had finished we had gone through a hell lot of drinks and I was nearly in tears. "I miss him, I actually miss him" I admitted, wiping a few stray tears away. "Oh Cara, i'm sure everything will turn out for the best" Lily smiled sadly, rubbing my arm. I couldn't reply, as when I looked up my eyes locked on the very man of the moment. Harry. I looked to his right and saw a cheeky looking Niall. Me and Harry were wearing the same expressions - what the hell had Niall done? Before I knew it, Niall was basically pushing Harry in our direction as they got to us. "Hey girls" Niall said, giving Lily a quick kiss on the cheek. I didn't even look up, what was I supposed to say? Harry kept his head down too, both of us stuck in this awkward situation. I glared at Lily for help, but she was too busy giggling with Niall. I sighed and picked up my clutch - I wasn't staying here. I took a few steps before I felt a hand pull me around. I was met with Harry's sad green eyes, burning into mine. "Can we talk?" He murmured, gesturing towards the door. I nodded, leading the way to the door. We got outside and I took a deep breath before facing him.
"You look nice" He said quietly. I smiled weakly and ran my hand through my hair. "Listen Cara...i'm sorry, i'm sorry I went off on one, I just thought that you didn't really like me at all and then Niall told me that actually you had told Lily everything and that you liked me as much as I liked you, and then I felt like an idiot so I didn't call because I thought you hated me" Harry quickly told me. "I don't hate you Harry, I miss you" I said, looking up at him. "I miss you too, so much" he frowned. "You have to believe me when I say that I like you so much and I never wanted us to be apart" I said, stepping a foot closer. "I don't want to apart from you anymore, i've been so miserable this week, and the reason is because I want to be with you Cara, I want to be with you more than friends. I'm not saying we have to make anything official but if you want to i'd love to go back to the way it was" Harry said as he gently took my hand, nervous of whether I would let him. "I'd love to" I whispered, as he closed the gap and kissed me hard.
