3. Chapter 3

Alison's POV

After last night me and mom haven't spoken. I just want answers. But I couldn't even look at her. There were so many thoughts going through my head.

Why did she stay with Robert?

Were her and Robert having an affair before dad died?

Was my mom part of my dad's murder?

I just want to know.. Everything. Why can't the world be like the movies where the mom and daughter have a heart to heart every time something is wrong ?

This world would be so perfect if everything was like a movie.

I should've talked to her. I was just so pissed off. After I got ready, I left. I couldn't say anything to her.


Harry's POV


As I pulled into the school's parking lot I spotted some of my friends. I know we're only sophomores but we couldn't wait to get the hell out of here. Unlike the jocks and cheerleaders we planned on doing something to help someone other than a football coach. I guess we are considered the "music-obsessed freaks." But hey, if that's what I have to be to make my dreams come true, then so be it.

I hopped out of my car and walked over to the passenger door and pulled out my guitar case. I wanted to get inside and start practicing because I can't play at home unless my jackass dad isn't there.

When I walked over to my friends the first thing Sammie said was, "Harry, what the hell?"

What? I thought I was late or something but they wouldn't be outside still. I quickly wiped my mouth and chin hoping there wasn't left over orange juice or bagel on my face. "God, what?"

"Did your dad do that?" She asked looking up at my forehead.

Shit. I forgot to put a Band-Aid on my head. "Oh yeah, it's nothing. Really, it doesn't hurt," I lied to one of my closest friends. She stood on her tip-toes and touched the newly forming scab; I winced at her soft touch.

"Mhmm.. And you said it doesn't hurt?" she cocked an eyebrow at me. Pretty much everyone in the whole school knew she liked me. But all my friends, including Sammie, knew I've liked Alison for quite some time now. Except I'm pretty sure I'm the last thing that's ever on her mind. Hell, I bet she doesn't even know that I'm her soon-to-be stepbrother. I didn't have a chance with her though, especially now that we're going to be practically related. Even before that, I've always had 3-5 close friends but her; she's had the same 10-15 friends since 4th grade. She's not that cliché popular girl though. She's not blonde nor head cheerleader and she absolutely DOES NOT take shit from any guy! Whether it is the captain of the football team or basketball team or the nerd of our class for God's sake, she takes it from no one. Which is why I'm surprised she's put up with my dad always being at her house.

"No, it doesn't. Well not that bad," I quickly said as soon as I realized I was lost in my thoughts because all of my friends were staring straight at me. I glanced over at where Alison always stands by her car in the morning. She was smiling and laughing with her friends. She didn't' have makeup on today. It was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen in my entire life. Watching her beautiful and happy made me smile.

"Whatever you say, Harry," Taylor chimed in. When I looked over at her she had a smirk on her face. She saw me looking at Ali. Dammit.

"Okay guys. Let's leave the kid alone. If he was hurt bad I'm sure he would say something."

Praise God for you Jason. Praise God. I shoot him a thankful look and he nods his head at me.

"Now that that's over with, you wanna go inside? I know Sam needs to work on her vocals and I'm pretty sure Harry is dying to finish that song," Jess said as she already started making her ways to the entrance.

"Oh my god, yes!" Taylor screamed as she ran to the door. "I need to hear Sammie's voice! It's been too long!"

I heard Jason chuckle. He picked up my guitar case and tossed it to me.

"Let's go curly."

While I was excited to get in and get to work Sammie, Jason, and I were not nearly as excited as those two for some reason.

On the walk in Sam looked up at me and said, "When are we gonna get to hear that song?"

"When it's finished I guess."

"You always say that!" she whined.

She was right, I did. I mean they've all heard me sing and play guitar but I was just so insecure about my own writing. I don't know why. When I showed one of my songs to my songwriting teacher he said he loved it. I didn't know if he was just saying that because he didn't want to hurt my feelings.

"Well you'll hear them one day."

"When you're famous?" Taylor asked as her head popped out from behind a corner.

"Yes," I grinned. "Just kidding, when I'm completely confident in them."

"Okay Mr. Styles," Taylor giggled. She loved to call me that.



Alison's POV

I watched Harry walk into the school. I know he's liked me for a while now. And I'll admit I liked him a little bit before. But as soon as I found out that he was Robert's son I didn't want anything to do with him. I hated him as my mom's boyfriend but I'm pretty sure he hits Harry. He has a lot of bruises on him whenever I can see him up close. And this morning I saw Sammie -who I am almost positive is his girlfriend- touch his forehead. After that they all looked like they were having a serious conversation.

Anyways, I saw him staring at me. And I have to say I was quite flattered. But they walked into the school together -Taylor and Sarah running and Sammie, Jason, and Harry following walking slower. He had his guitar case slung over his shoulder which was rather hot.

**3 hours later**

As I walked down the hall after class I heard guitar strumming coming from the music room. I didn't think much of it until I heard the most beautiful voice. Now I had to go in there. As I walked in I saw someone's back facing the door but I could see the guitar and hear his voice. That's when I noticed the curly hair and remembered this morning, oh god. It can't be. No. That can't be Harry.

You know I'll be

Your life, your voice your reason to be

My love, my heart

Is breathing for this

Moment in time

I'll find the words to say

Before you leave me today

He strummed the guitar for a moment longer after he finished singing those last lyrics. And it was then that I realized I had never heard that song before.

"Did you write that?"

He jumped up and turned around. As soon as he saw me all he said was,"Holy shit, when did you get here?!"

I smiled at him,"A while ago. Did you write that?" I asked again.

"Umm, yeah," he said as he looked to he ground and stuck his fingers into his brown curly hair. He looked so shy, I personally think it was adorable.

"It's beautiful. So is your voice. Did you write it about your mom?"

His cheeks turned bright red. "How'd you know that?"

"I guessed kinda."

"So you've been standing there a while I presume," he raised an eyebrow at me.

"Long enough to know that you're definatly going to be someone in music if you share that kind of stuff with the world."

"Wow, thanks," he said. By the look on his face you'd think no one had ever told him that before.

"You've already been told that right?"

"Well not really," he looked disappointed that I caught his expression.

"Are you serious? Your friends have never told you that before?"

"I don't play my music for anyone," his cheeks turned red again.

"Well, I'm honored to be one of the first," I smiled to him as I left.


Harry's POV

"Well, I'm honored to be one of the first," she grinned before walking out the door.

Did that seriously just happen?

I just stood there and smiled for a minute. Until I saw her brown hair pop into the door.

"Hey, Harry?"

"Umm, yeah?" I asked confused.

"Do you think you could teach me to play guitar?" she looked at me with almost pleading eyes.

"Uhh," I looked over at her. I swear she almost batted her eyelashes. "Sure, why not?"

"Yay! When are you free?" she asked. I can't believe this is happening.

"Whenever you are," I smiled.

"Oh okay. How about tonight? Like 6:30-ish?"


"Alrighty, your house or mine?" she asked.

"Umm. It doesn't really matter I guess. It's not like you've never met my dad before," I said and smiled.

"Yeah," she giggled. "I guess since he'll probably be at my house we can go to yours. If you don't mind."

"That's perfect," I smiled.

"Great, see ya soon."

She walked out. About ten seconds later she appeared in the door yet another time.


I chuckled, "Yeah?"

"How much should I pay you?" she asked.

"Oh, don't worry about. Call it a sibling-to-sibling favor," I winked at her.

"Haha, I wasn't sure if you knew about that."

"Oh boy, I do," I smiled at her.

"Well, since you won't let me pay you I'll pick up some food on the way over," she said to me.

"You don't have to do that, we have food in the house. I think," I replied.

"You think? I won't take my chance with ol' Robert," she said speaking of my dad.

"Alright then. You know where I live, right?"

She thought about it for a second before saying, "I think so, well I'll just give you a call if I get lost."

My eyes widened, "I-I don't think I have your number."

"Oh right. Duhh, I'm so dumb," she laughed at herself, digging in her pocket for something. "Heads up!"

She tossed her phone to me, so I reached in my pocket for mine and tossed it to her. After we returned each others phones she said she was looking forward to tonight and left.

I can't believe this just happened.
