One day when she gets enough of school, she bumps into a charming young man, Harry Styles. Little did she know, that this boy could change her life completely..


21. Awkward.


Harrys P.O.V

As we sat there waiting for Clara and Liam to show up, Niall and I were talking about Bianca, his girlfriend. To be honest, I thought Niall could get a lot better, but she made him happy, and that made me happy. The doorbell interrupted our little conversation, but before I could even get up, Zayn was already on his way to answer. A few seconds later, Zayn came walking back, with Clara by his side. She looked around at Niall and Louis, and I could tell by the look in her eyes that she was extremely nervous. When her gorgeous eyes finally met mine, I couldn’t help but smile, and my heart skipped a small beat when she smiled back. With her standing in front of me, it was like she had a special power that automatically pulled me closer to her.  I reached out to take her soft little hands in mine, and looked straight into her small bright eyes, and told her exactly what was going through my head in that moment. “You look so beautiful, Clara” I got to see her cute little smile again, and it just made everything better. When I stood there, with her hands in mine, it was like the world stood still. Like we were the only two people on earth. It was the second best feeling in the world, the only thing that was better, was when I got her lips to attach to mine.

I was just about to bend over and kiss her, when we got interrupted by Niall. “What’s for lunch?” He let out an awkward laugh, and Clara immediately took a small step away from me.  “So Clara, what do you do besides school?” Louis’ voice started a conversation, and I gave him a huge smile when he glanced at me, before he turned his head back to Clara.

 It all went really well, Clara understood the boys’ humor, and they all seemed to be having a great time. Liam and Clara got along especially well, but I was just so happy that they thought she was cool. “Clara, would you pass me the water?” Zayn politely asked her, and with Clara being an angel, she gave him that wonderful smile of hers, and handed him the bottle. Just as he was about to take it out of her hand, it happened. Clara’s sleeve pulled itself up, just a little, but just enough to see her deep red scars and wounds on her skinny fragile wrist. “Woah, what happened?!” Zayn’s voice was filled with worries, and his eyes suddenly looked a little scared. I saw Clara’s smile disappear, and her eyes showed how nervous she was. “Oh, well.. I have a very.. angry cat” The laugh she let out at the end was fake, but I think she had the others fooled. Zayn seemed to calm a little down, and the tone of his voice was pretty normal now. “Well that a relief, for a second I thought you had done that to yourself” He smiled at all of us, and I just hoped that they would change the subject, I hated seeing Clara having to lie to them, but I understood why.

“Why do people actually cut themselves?” Niall asked, and I felt Clara’s hand secretly finding mine and grabbing it. I gently pressed her hand, trying to let her know that it was going to be okay. “I don’t know, why don’t you ask Clara?” Louis chuckled, and the rest of the boys laughed along with him. I was sure it was meant as a joke, I couldn’t blame him for not knowing, but it still pissed me of like crazy. Clara was like a little glass doll, extremely beautiful, but so fragile and easy to brake, and with Louis having said that, it was like he was throwing her around, not watching out if he was going to drop her.

An awkward silence fast spread when they saw that Clara wasn’t laughing alone. She was just sitting there, staring at the floor. I glanced up at Louis, and stared straight at him. When his eyes met mine, I saw the guilt spread, and I could tell he knew what he had done.  My body started heating up, I had to at least do something.  “Well… Im gonna make lunch know, anyone hungry?” Niall’s voice filled the room, and it felt like everyone brightened up. “Yeah” Zayn and Clara said at the same time, and they left with Niall to the kitchen. Before Clara got out of my sight, he turned her head and gave me a little smile.

I faced Liam and Louis, and I knew what had to be done. They needed to know how special she was, and I had to make sure they wouldn’t say ANYTHING like that to her, ever again.
