beauty always has a price {harry styles fanfiction}

Lauren's life has always been rough, but will a makeover change that?


2. Chapter 1 - What's wrong with having confidence?

"She's always late. I wonder what her excuse is this time?" It was my bestfriend Natasha. She was waiting for me, outside the University. 

"Sorry about the lateness, I had to quickly stop by the bookstore."

"Ugh! I still will never understand your strange obsession with books."

"Well, you know what they say... There is nothing like the smell of books, both new and old. If someone ever battled the smell, I would be all over it - quoted by the wonderful and talented Tiffany King."

Natasha looked weird at me... "I don't get it?"

"Okay, moving on then... I still can't believe we're starting University! The honour to be part of this well-known instiution, which grants us such a--"

"Errr... Lauren, sorry to burst your bubble, but..."

"Sorry! I sort of got carried away. Don't mind me."

Even though I'm very much overwhelmed with excitement, I'm actually a bit anxious as well...  I want my University experience to be amazing, unlike High School...

"Nah, I just really want to have a fun time here."

"Seriously Lauren? So, now you're nervous?""

"A bit."

"For what reason? We are official adults! You do know what that means, right?"


Natasha lauhed... "Cute boys, new friends, no rules and plenty of parites, duh... Oh I almost forget to tell you."

"What is it?"

"Promise me, you will not flip out?"

"I can't make any promises, just tell me."

"Well... Victoria and Nicole have been enrolled here too. So, most likely.. we will see them."

If you could see me now, would you could tell by my reaction, that Victoria and I.. Well we never exactly got along. She's legit one of the worst human beings on this earth... well, maybe I'm pushing it. Just a little.

"No, no, no!" shouted I. 

"You never know, maybe she's changed her cold ways. Especially now, since we're University students. We're going to be amongst adults. so I doubt she's bother you this time."

"You think so? A leopard never changes it's spots. You do know that right? You know Victoria! She always made my life hell back in high school. Remember back in High School when.. she spread that I peed myself in the public, and everybody believed her? Making the whole school call me Pee-Pee girl for 2 years?"

"Yeah, I remember."

"Oh lord! This really really sucks. Is it too much to ask for a fresh start?"

"Oh stop with the negativity. You know, if she and her follower cause you any sort of trouble, I got your back."

Bip bip.... "Sorry, I have to take this. I'll see you later Lauren."

I better start making my way to the reception, if I want to collect my room key.

On the way to the reception, I bumped in to two lovely girls... Just so you know I'm being very sarcastic. 

"Oh wow! Look who we have here... Lauren Martinez!"

"Ew! And what on earth is she wearing?"

"Who leaves the house, looking like that?!"

"Since when were brown sweaters in? Like never!"

Okay guys, you finally meet the bitches. Excuse my language. Believe it or not, once upon a time we actually used to be close friends! She used to come over to my house, when we were younger, and ask my mother if we could play out. Isn't it funny how things change?

"Well Victoria and Nicole... I rather eat broken glass than look like you two!"

"Yeah right!"

"Oh a real note, what is your problem Victoria?"

"Sweetie, I couldn't give a flying toss what you think... and MY problem? What problem might that be? C'mon darling look at me.. Now look at you!"

"Vic, she's just jealous of you that's all."

"Well who isn't?"

Another thing you should know about me is, I don't tolerate crap from anyone. I might be a "nerd"? but I have a sharp tongue. Anyway, back to the story!

I laughed "JEALOUS?! You two are fake as hell and.. You know what? I don't even know why I'm wasting my time on you!"

"Awwwww! Looks like little Lauren got herself, confidence. Congratulations! Just so you know, I'm going to be running things around here... So I suggest you watch your back, Martinez!"

"Whatever! Now, I can totally see why Ryder left your fake ass, or shall I say.. FAKE lips ahaaha!"

"My lips are real. I just use a really good lip liner! You bitch... I didn't wanna do this, but you gave me no other option... EVERYONE, CAN I PLEASE HAVE YOUR ATTENTION! THIS GIRL RIGHT HERE, HER NAME IS LAUREN MARTINEZ. SHE HAS NEVER KISSED A GUY AND IS STILL A VIRGIN!"

"That's not!"

I couldn't take it anymore.I ran through the hallways. In front of the library, two guys were talking...

"Wow, you got serious game! Did you know, it took Ryder two years to get her in the sack?"

"Louis, she was all over me."

"Never thought it would take less than 24 hours for you to bang her."

"My dude, girls are loose nowadays. That's why I'll never take a girl seriously. No matter how cute she looks, girls are all the same."

"True that, you are just living the single life, Harry!"

"I don't have time for stupid, lovey dovey relationships."

"More power to you, Harry"

I was running so fast, that I ran into one of the guys..

"What the hell!?!"


"That is gonna hurt Harry"

"Oh my gosh, I'm really sorry!"


"Are you serious? Don't you dare talk to me like that, you jerk! I even apologized to you, but now I take it back!"

"Ahaha,you really need to fix those glasses of yours. You clearly need another check up."

"Who do you think you're talking to?"

"Well well, just some weird looking girl, nothing less and nothing more."

"Excuse me, you're no Brad Pitt!"

"Nope! You're right. I'm better looking..."

"Ugh, you so obsessed with yourself it's' lame."

"I know you want a piece of me, but unfortunately for you, you're not exactly my type."

"Like I'm interested in YOU. You're just a typical jerk. Delusional, obnoxious and I bet you're a player too!"

He looked surprised.. "You knocked me down, and yet you have the audacity to insult me."

"I couldn't give two shits, bye asshole!" And then I walked away...

I know what you are thinking... what a jerk! Who talks to girls like that? I hope I never see his stupid face ever again.

Bip Biiiiiip.... "Hello?"

Natasha: "Hey it's Natasha, I can't meet up with you today, you see... Something important came up."

"Huh? What's up? You sound really upset."

Natasha: Oh, don't worry about it. It's minor. We'll chat later, okay? Bye."

"Okay... bye?"

Gosh, I hope Nat is okay. She sounded like she'd been crying... Oh snap, I need to collect my room key from the reception, I can't believe I almost forgot!

And then I ran as fast as I could to the reception...

"Hello, my name is Lauren."

"Hello, my name is Kacey. I'll be your Student representative for this year, and what may I do for you?"

"Hi Kacey, I'm here to collect my room key."

"Right Lauren, what is your surname and date of birth?"

"Martinez and 04/11/1996"

"Thank you!"

Kacey looked shocked... "Ehh, I see that you applied for a accommodation quite late. I'm afraid all the dorms are full. I'm ever so sorry, Miss Martinez."

"ARE YOU KIDDING ME? My lesson stars tomorrow, and my permanent household is 4 hours away. Where am I suppose to stay?"

"Please give me a moment, Miss Martinez."


"Miss Martinez? Urm... there is one room available but.."

"I don't care! I'll take it. I'm so desparete. PLEASE!"

"Your room number is 318 on the 4th floor. Here are your keys."


 I went out of the reception, and tried to find room 318.

This building is so luxurious, and the architecture is breathtaking. I wonder what the catch was, for staying in room 318. I hope it isn't haunted or something. That would be inconvenient.
314... 315, 316, 317.... 318! Found you!

The room was frickin' beautiful, but this room is gorgeous!! For the first time ever I'm official in love, oh yeah!

Bip biiiippp... Natasha is calling..
"Hey! Is everything alright?

"Natasha: Everything is cool. Sorry about earlier, it's just my mom.. always picking on me, you know. That's why I was a little down before. I'm all good now."

"Well, I'm happy to know that you're okay... I was worried."

Natasha and I, just had a long interesting chat on the phone. We had a discussion about boys, family life and my cool new place. I even mentioned to her about Victoria, and that jerk I came across today. 

"Oh Nat, I got to go. I think my roommate just have arrived."

"Natasha: Okay, bye bye..."

Let's hope she's nice!!


I couldn't believe it... It was the jerk from earlier.

"What are you doing here!?!"
