When things turn bad, and her dad dies, will Rebekah ever be able to cope? Can Harry help her? Will they be together? Read to find out! (BTW there will be a sequal! I'm working on it now along with other fanfics that will be up soon.)


2. Chapter 2 Meet the Neighbors


“Rebekah, the neighbors invited us over for dinner, so start getting ready; they want us to be there at 6.” My mom said as she walked back through my room and back to hers and my dad’s room; closing my door behind her. I got up and looked at the time. It was 4:30 now so I had plenty of time. I hopped into the shower and did my business, I got out and wrapped the towel around me and went to my suitcase. I rummaged through my clothes and settled on this: I blow dried my hair and let it fall naturally; then I did my make-up:  I added accessories:  By the time I was done it was 5:50. “Boo, are you ready?”  My mom called.

“Yep, ready when you guys are.” I said as I reached the bottom of the stairs.

“Well don’t you look nice.”

“Thanks, so who are the neighbors?”

“You’ll see.” My mom winked at me.

“Okay…” We all left and walked next door. The house was pretty much the same as mine, but a bit bigger. We walked up to the door and my dad rang the doorbell. The door opened and I couldn’t believe my eyes. Standing in the doorway was the one and only Harry Styles.

“Hello, I’m Harry.” He said introducing himself, he shook my dad’s hand and hugged my mom and me. “Come on in.” Smiling that million dollar smile of his; he kept looking at me, and I smiled. I was totally freaking out on the inside, but I did my best not to let it show. I was next door neighbors with Harry Styles and his family. We walked inside and Harry escorted us to the living room where Robin was watching a soccer football game. Robin got up and introduced himself, shaking all of our hands. “Mum, Gemma, the guests are here!” Harry called.

Anne came out of the kitchen with an apron on. “Hello, sorry, dinner will be ready soon, I’m Anne.” She hugged us girls and shook my dad’s hand. Gemma walked in and did the same thing as Anne, except she only introduced herself. “Harry, why don’t you take Rebekah and show her around?” Anne suggested.

“Okay, c’mon.” He grabbed my hand and led me up the stairs. He showed me around a little and then came to a door. “Now, don’t be appalled or anything, but my room isn’t the cleanest.” He said, turning the doorknob and opening the door. His room was actually really clean.  “So, I remember you from the plane.” He stuck his hands in his pockets and leaned against his dresser.

“That was you?” I asked raising one eyebrow.

He chuckled, “Yep.”

“I can’t believe I didn’t recognize you; I mean I knew I had heard your voice before, but I just couldn’t place it.”

“Oh, so you’re a fan?”

“Maybe.” I said laughing a bit. “Ya, I am.”

“Cool. Wanna see the balcony?”

“You have a balcony? Me too!”

He chuckled. “Ya, I know, I heard you singing earlier.” We walked out onto his balcony.

I blushed and looked down. “Really?”

“Ya, and don’t look down, you’re really good.” He said, walking over and lifting my chin up using his index finger. “You’re really cute when you blush.”

I blushed more and rolled my eyes. “Quit making me blush, Styles.”

“Oh, so it’s Styles, now?”


“Okay-what’s your last name?”


“Okay, James.”

I rolled my eyes. “Kids, dinner’s ready!” Anne called.

“Let’s go.” He grabbed my hand again and led me downstairs to the dining room. He pulled out a chair and motioned for me to sit down.

“Why thank you.” I said.

“Of course.” He sat down next to me and then Anne and Gemma started to bring out dinner.

“I hope you all like chicken and mash, (mashed potatoes), we also have green beans.”

“Wow, thank you, Anne.” My mom said. “It looks delicious.”

“Well, dig in.” We all started putting food on our plates. We started eating.

“Wow, Ms. Cox, this is really good.” I said.

“Thank you, and please, call me Anne.”


“So, Kara, what do you do for a living?”

“Well, I’m looking for a job as a vet, that’s what I did back in New York, so hopefully I can find one. Rebekah actually worked with me.”

“Oh, that’s amazing, there’s actually a vet about 15 miles west of here in town.”

“Okay, I’ll check it out.”

“Harry, why don’t you take them sometime to go look at it.”

“Sure mum.” Harry said.

“So what about you Tim?”

“I’m in the military.”

“Oh, really, what branch?”

“Army, in fact we moved here because they transferred me to the base here.”

“Well, we’re glad you’re here.”

“Thank you.”

“So, Tim, are you in active duty or is it just like a desk job?”

“Active duty, I actually have to leave the day after tomorrow.”

I stopped eating and looked up at him. “What? You never told me this.”

“I know baby, I was gonna tell you tonight when we got back home.”

“But, dad, we just got here, you can’t leave.” I was starting to get teary eyed.

“I’m sorry baby, but I just got the orders in the mail when we got here. I have to go.”

“I know, I just, um, can you excuse me for a minute?” I got up and stepped outside. I sat down on the steps and put my head in my hands. I know I might be over reacting, but we just got here and now he was leaving again. I heard the door open, but I didn’t look up.

“Are you okay, love?” I heard Harry’s British accent.

I looked up, “Ya, I’m sorry; it’s just hard hearing that he’s leaving again.”

“You don’t have anything to be sorry about.”

“I just don’t want him to go; I don’t want him to get hurt.” I put my head back in my hands and started to cry.

Harry pulled me into a hug and rubbed my back. “Shh, don’t cry love, I’m sure your dad will be fine.” I started to calm down a bit.

“I’m sorry; I don’t mean to be a burden.”

“Don’t be silly, I don’t really understand what you’re going through with your dad, but when my dad left I don’t get to see him as much as I’d like to and so I miss him a lot. But, hey, we can always miss our dads together.” He chuckled and I did too.


“How about we go back inside and finish dinner, ya?”

“Ya; and Harry?”

“Yes love?”

“Thank you.” I kissed his cheek and we went back inside.
