Forbidden ~ Harry Styles ~ (On Hold)

* Harry is not famous in this story *

Many say how there are two kinds of people in this world.

In Pax town there certainly are two kinds of very different people. I never really understood the name of our little town, after all "pax" means peaceful in latin, but believe me, we're anything but.

From a very young age I've been told to stay away from them. You may call them The Rebels, but out here everyone calls them the lower class, the scums, the bastards.

We are very different from them, like North and South, hot and cold; we're complete opposites. Besides the constant rumours about them going around, I can't help but think what it would be like to be them for a day....

My father would never allow it. He'd never let his only daughter do anything close to danger.
Apart from all the warnings, there's always one of the rebels who catches my eye.

I believe his name is Harry, Harry Styles.

13. The Proposal

I carefully climbed up the side of my house. The healthy looking plants growing around the wood made the job almost effortless.

But there was something else sustaining me. They were the hands around my hips pushing me up slightly.

Harry insisted to walk to me home although it was already morning and the sun's glow was present.

On my final step and jump, I felt Harry give me one final push to assist me.

"I'll see you soon Harry." I added as I stuck my head out the window.

"Hopefully next time you'll once again have to climb up that window, because truthfully I love seeing you in that angle."

With one final wink, he disappeared into the buildings.

As soon as he was our of sight, I immediately ran to my bed. I let the smooth sheets wrap around me and rested into the comfortable surface. Unfortunately just as I allowed my mind to drift into obliviousness, there was a knock on my door.

Groaning, in a not so lady-like manner, I slowly pried my eyes open. The action was almost unwilling as brightness blinded my sight.

"Rachel?" It was Luke. He sounded both concerned and slightly angry.

I quickly stood up not wanting to arise any suspicion. As I walked to the door I secretly hoped that he handbrake found out about Harry and I.

I don't know what he would do then.

Luke didn't allow me to open the door as he pushed past it as soon as it was unlocked.

He seemed to be searching my room for something.... Or someone.

I slightly arched an eyebrow at him when he didn't find anything. Thank goodness he didn't.   "What's the matter, Luke?" I asked quite proud that my tone didn't falter.

He sighed and came closer to me. Before, this action use to bring me comfort, now it made the alarms in my head start going off.

I tried politely walking back from him, but he took a hold of my hand.

"I want you to come with me tonight," He said slowly as he brought the back of my hand to his lips, "I have surprise for you, your family and friends will be there too."

My friends were Bella and James, since the 'rebels' would never be invited to an event like this. Although I had only known James for a short while, I knew I could trust him more than most people. 

My family didn't live as happily as they used to. Their thoughts seemed to be wrapped up around money to even notice their surroundings.

"Tonight?" I bluntly asked before I could stop myself.

Luke stopped kissing my hand and instead rested his knuckles against my cheek. "Of course tonight, do you have something else to attend?"

Unless Harry was planning to drop by without telling me once more then I was free for the rest of the day.

"How should I dress?" What kind of event did Luke have in mind? Hopefully he would just let me wear something comfortable but I doubted that would happen.

"I'm taking you to buy a dress. A walk in town would do no harm."

I knew exactly what he meant by that. Goodness help us if we bumped into any 'rebels'.


The day had been exactly as I pictured it.

While I looked at the delicate, simple details on a dress, Luke would go far into the expensive side.

The cheapest dresses were often more comfortable, that's how I ended up wearing this heavy, over prized piece of fabric. 

"It looks perfect on you." The woman said as the walked around me. Her eyes sizing every inch of my body.

"I agree, you look beautiful as always. But even a jewel like yourself needs some decorating here and there." Luke added as he looked at my body in a way that I didn't like.

A jewel? I sure didn't feel like one. While they gawked about how beautiful it looked, I one the other hand was suffering.

The top of the dress was closed tightly against my chest, making me feel like I wouldn't be able to stay in it for more than a few hours. The hem reached my knees, but tickled the skin thanks to the flowers attached to it. At least it was pretty.

"Do you like it?" The woman asked urgently, probably anxious to know if she had a sale.

I looked down at the prize and my eyes nearly widened. "I like it," Why do I lie so much? "But it's a little bit expensive. I don't think you should buy it."

I crossed my fingers that he wouldn't as I could see the woman start panics. But Luke smiled as he played with the hem of the dress.

"Nothing is too expensive for you. My future wife deserves the best."

The woman clapped happily an before any of us could change our minds, she lead me to the change room to pack the dress up.

I couldn't help but notice how happy Luke looked all day. That only meant that whatever news he had must be good.... To him.

Something told me that I wasn't going to enjoy tonight.


"Has he said something yet."


"Are you sure?"

"Yes I'm sure!"

"Really sure?"


I laughed at the two cousins as they continued their bickering.

"James, I'll let you know if Luke announces anything." I reassured him although inside I was dreading each second that passed.

"I'm sorry, it's just that I can't help it. He's been smiling all day and that's a little abnormal." What James said was true. Luke wasn't a serious guy, but he wasn't one to be giving out free smiled either. If he liked you or you impressed him then you would earn his smile.

"Hopefully it's something about him having to go work somewhere else so he can leave once and for all." Bella mumbled under her breath.

I fought the urge to laugh at my friend's joke but a smile did make its way onto my lips. This did not go unseen by Bella and she immediately stared at me. Usually when she insulted Luke, I would stand up for him, but now I saw no point.

Before she could question me, a voice spoke up, "Can I get your attention everyone?" It was Luke. I guess it was time for the long awaited announcement.

Once everyone was quiet and facing him, his lips broke out into a smile. His feet started moving towards where I sat and that's when my heart stopped beating.

He stood I front of me and held my hand. My left hand. "As you all know, Rachel and I have been engaged for awhile. But I've never had the chance to make it public or better yet start preparing the wedding thanks to some lurking rats." Most people in the room laughed at his joke. I frowned at him as. The 'lurking rats', as he called them, were the rebels. He was insulting my friends. He was insulting Harry. I was surprised to see that my father wasn't laughing, instead he was shaking his head in disagreement.

Once everyone calmed down, he continued. "I saw this dinner as the perfect opportunity to tell our family and friends," He took out something from his pocket. A ring. "That the wedding is finally being planned. Our plan is to get married as soon as the preparations are done." He placed the engagement ring on my finger as everyone erupted into cheers.

Our plan? That wasn't our plan. It was his plan which I had no idea of.

The night only got worst when everyone changed for us to share a kiss.

But I couldn't bring myself to kiss him. Harry's lips were the only one I could kiss, the only ones who could return as much as they could.

Before Luke had a chance to comply to the cheers, I ran.

Leaving behind the cheers of happy people who knew nothing of how unhappy I was. 

Bella and James looked concerned, but I didn't wait for them to follow me.

I needed hope, to know that I would get out of this.

I needed Harry.


 I have finished planning the story so I know what each chapter will uphold. The next few chapters are filled with a little more drama and a lot more happening. I apologize for the late update, but I am currently in South America.

I'm thinking of adding an R-rated scene in one of the future chapters. Please let me know how you feel about it since I don't want to ruin this story for anyone.
