Someone Like You (Harry Styles Fanfiction)

Rose and Harry used to be together. They were the couple who was inseparable... that is until they decided to go their separate ways.

"We'll find each other one day, and when we do, we'll go back to the way things were."

That was the promise Harry had made Rose before going on a world tour. That was five long years ago when they were both 18 years old. They're both 23 years old now and have gone on living their lives in their own ways.

Rose is still waiting for the day Harry will waltz back into her life, but she knows it won't happen, she's holding onto false hope. She works at a lousy job where she is forced to copy papers for a living and make coffee runs for the employees. She goes home after work to her cat, Crookshanks, and is by herself for 12 hours before repeating her day once more.

Harry, however, has long forgotten the promise he gave Rose. Harry has been married for a year to his wife, Mallory. Harry hasn't forgotten about Rose though. The rose flower running up his rig


8. Chapter 7

The drive to the hospital, Rose drove since she knew Harry would most likely fall asleep on the way there, which he did. She wondered what was going through his mind since so much has now changed for him. His friends are his family and they are dealing with what any other family is going through. Hopefully Zayn will get better and overcome this sickness.

"Harry," Rose whispered to Harry shaking his shoulder lightly. He took in a deep breath through his nose and looked around appearing to be disoriented. He looked at Rose and she smiled at him softly, "We're here," she whispered brushing his hair back.

"Okay," he mumbled and sat up and rubbed the sleep from his eyes. Rose undid her seatbelt and looked out the window at the front of the hospital.

It was kind of amazing that those doors were the only barrier keeping Harry from the four boys. Harry had missed them deeply, Rose was able to see that and Rose was almost positive that they had missed him as well. She knew that he was their other fifth and they were really like a family.

"They're really here aren't they?" Harry asked looking at the building in worry, "What if they hate me? What if they hate me for what I did?"

"They could never hate you. Hell, all is probably is forgotten because of the reason you're all here. Besides, Niall is practically your brother-in-law, he is basically your brother," Rose said leaving Harry to nod understanding where she was coming from, "I am going to be next to you the whole time. I'll be there for you to hold my hand and give you courage. I'll always be here," Rose said resting a hand on his shoulder.

"Thank you," he whispered before leaning over and placing a soft kiss on Rose's cheek. Tingles ran down her spine in response to his lips touching her body.

"Let's go see those boys, shall we?" Rose asked and Harry nodded slowly pressing down on the red button of his seatbelt releasing himself.

Rose climbed out of the car and waited for Harry to come around and walk near her. She locked his car and handed his keys over to him and he shoved them in his pocket. They walked inside the building and up to the reception. Rose could sense that Harry was nervous because he was biting his bottom lip and had his lip rolled into his mouth.

"May I help you two?" the nurse behind the desk asked.

"We're here to see our good friend, Zayn Malik. Could we get his room number?" Rose asked politely. The nurse looked at Rose with a sceptical look, but once she saw Harry standing behind her, her scepticism disappeared and she nodded and looked up Zayn's room number.

"He's in the cancer ward. Take that hallway right over there and take the lift to his floor which is floor 5. His room is 62C," she said pointing them in a direction.

"Thank you very much," Rose said and ushered Harry to the lift and pressed the arrow pointing up. Harry took a hold of Rose's hand and tightly squeezed it. Rose glanced down at their hands. He was squeezing tightly because he was so nervous. She was also able to notice his hands were clammy.

They stepped inside the lift and she pressed the five making it go up almost immediately. She looked at Harry and felt bad for him because he was living in the moment and held a fear of not knowing.

"It's going to be alright," Rose said just seconds before the lift opened. Harry dropped her hand and followed Rose.

Rose glanced at the burgundy and white signs, which pointed in the direction of the room numbers. She followed the path and found Zayn's room, which the door was shut, but was slightly open. She could hear the chatter of the boys' voices. She looked at Harry and saw him looking at the ground.

Rose walked up to the door, knocked lightly, and pushed the door open poking his head in. She saw everyone look to her and their eyes seemed to brighten. She could only see Niall, Louis, and Liam since they were all standing in front of Zayn as if they were protecting him.

"Rose!" Louis greeted with a smile on his face, "Come on in!"

"Thanks, me and Harry came here as soon as he told me," she said gesturing behind her to Harry.

"Harry came with you? Really?" Louis asked with a raised eyebrow.

"Ye-" she said and turned around to see the door shut, "I'll be back. He's a little nervous," Rose said and the boys nodded looking at each other. Rose turned on her heels, went back to the door, and opened it to find Harry still standing there.

"I can't," he whispered softly looking at the ground. She saw a droplet of water fall from the tip of his nose and to the floor.

"You can do this; I promised you I would be here wouldn't I? Come on, the boys want to see you, Harry. They're all in there waiting to see you. Come on now, come see your brothers," Rose said holding out her hand to Harry so he could take it.

Harry looked at her extended hand and slowly, he took it, looked up into his eyes, and saw her being serious. He knew in the back of his mind that he was a coward for not being able to go into the room on his own. He wiped his eyes with the back of his free hand, let out a shaky breath, and placed his hand on his waste.

"You okay?" Rose asked and he looked at her.

"Yeah," he said softly and walked forward. Rose opened the door and he walked in still grasping her hand for dear life. He looked up, saw three of the boys standing before him, and was almost amazed at how different they all looked.

He looked at Liam first. He looked older and wiser than he remembered. His hair was cut short and was stuck up using hair gel. He had acquired some wrinkles under his eyes, but only a few. He looked at Niall and was almost so shocked to be looking at him because the blonde hair he once had was completely gone. Niall had dark brown hair close to Harry's shade, but no blonde streaks were in it. Harry then looked at Louis, who was inching near 30 years old. His hairline had drawn back a little bit, but not enough that it was noticeable. His hair was short and styled similar to that of Liam's.

"Hey Harry," Louis greeted and Harry looked at his eyes and gave an awkward smile unsure of how to react.

"Lads, you do know I can't see, right?" the strong Bradford accent asked the three boys. They all blushed looking over their shoulders and looked down at Zayn.

"In other words, move," Liam said to Niall and Louis. Niall decided to be the instigator and move out of the way.

Harry decided to be bold and let go of Rose's hand and walk up to Zayn's bed to see him. He walked up and was almost speechless. Zayn's hair was completely gone. He had no hair covering his head. No styled hair, no eyebrows, no facial hair, no arm hair. It was completely wiped from him. Zayn had oxygen tubes in his nose to aid him in breathing and had various IV's connected to his body.

Harry choked up and carefully wrapped his arms around him and felt his eyes water. Zayn could sense Harry was crying so he rubbed Harry's back as best he could and looked up at the others and the boys got the message. Harry felt so bad for leaving this family and not keeping up with the boys who's lives changed alongside his.

"I'm sorry, I'm so sorry," Harry cried into Zayn's shoulder. Louis sat down on the edge of the bed and wrapped his arms around both of their bodies. Liam and Niall joined the hug and it was as if they had never left.

Rose leaned against the wall and felt her eyes water at the sigh before her. It was so sad yet so beautiful. To think twelve hours previous to this, the boys weren't even speaking to Harry. This was a real family and she couldn't help but remember the times she used to spend a weekend with Harry in his flat in London. But this, this is one of those moments she will never be able to forget. The day these boys, all in their mid twenties, reunited for the first time in half a decade. The family was back and they were going to battle this cancer together and beat it's ass.

The group stood up letting Zayn have his space back. Liam handed Harry a tissue and Harry wiped his eyes and looked up at everyone. Louis placed a firm grip on Harry's shoulder and squeezed it gently. Words weren't needed to convey the message passing from Louis to Harry, it was there. The look Louis had given Harry gave Harry the reassurance that all was forgotten and everything was forgiven.

"So Harry, we're curious about the life you live," Niall said taking out a chocolate bar from a bag on the floor. Harry saw him do so and chuckled at him.

"You can never change, Niall," Harry said shaking his head, "After the band ended, I went to school in Manchester and got my teaching certificate in music and English. I work at a primary school close to my house. It's a nice school, most of my students don't know who I am, but their parents do. Mostly the younger students mums," Harry said making the boys chuckle.

"What about you and Rose? Any kids hanging out back home?" Liam asked with a smile on his face. Harry blushed and glanced at Rose.

"Umm...we're not even really together," Harry said scratching the back of his neck awkwardly, "I'm married to a woman named Mallory. I met her not long before we broke up. She's the girl I told you lads about and that's what brought on...yeah," Harry said and the boys all shared a look.

"You guys are secretly together are you not?" Zayn asked and Rose smiled at the ground, "You are. Why?"

"We do love each other very much just as we did all those years ago. I don't really love Mallory; she was someone who filled the emptiness in my heart. I- I want to leave her, but I don't want to be there to see her heart break," Harry said softly and the boys looked at him, "I got the papers, filled them out an everything. She just needs to sign them, but I can't bring myself to go in front of her and tell her I don't love nor have I ever," Harry said and Liam gave Harry a look.

"You should do it sooner than later," Zayn said and Harry nodded.

"What about you lads, I want to know what's been going on with you all," Harry said and grinned at them.

"I finished college and got my engineering license and work on aeroplanes now. Danielle and I got married and we have two children," Liam said with a smile on his face.

"I got married to Perrie and we have a daughter named Eliza," Zayn said with a soft smile on his face. He leaned over, grabbed a photo off of the table, and handed it to Harry, "That's Eliza. She's my little angel," Zayn said with a smile on his face.

Harry looked at Zayn with a smile and looked down at the photo. The small girl had dark hair much like her father's, but had Perrie's extraordinary blue eyes popping in the photo. She looked a lot like Zayn. Harry couldn't help but feel like he missed out on so much all because of his actions.

"She's beautiful, she looks a lot like you," Harry said with a smile on his face. Zayn grinned taking the photo from Harry's hand and placing it on his bedside table.

"Do you have any kids, Harry?" Louis asked leaning on the side of Zayn's bed, "Knowing you, you probably have a houseful of them, right lads?" Louis asked smiling at the three other boys.

"No, I don't have any kids," Harry said rubbing his hands together awkwardly.

"What? Harry doesn't have kids? Out of all of us, I would have expected you to have some by now," Niall said and Harry chuckled, "Well, I don't have any, but I do want one or two some day... granted when I find the right girl," Niall said with a blush rising on his cheeks.

"There's plenty of girls out there, Niall, you just have to look," Harry said with a gleam in his eyes. His eyes glanced across the room to see Rose leaning against the wall with a smile on her face, "You're awfully quiet, you alright?"

"Yeah," Rose spoke softly, "I am just letting you boys catch up. It's rude to interrupt."

"We invited you," Louis said walking over to Rose and giving her a hug. Rose was shocked that he was giving her a hug considering the past they all had.

"Harry," Liam said looking at Harry, "Why don't you join Niall and me for a cuppa. I think Zayn and Louis want to talk with Rose for a bit," Liam said standing up and making a motion with his hand.

Harry glanced at Rose and she nodded allowing him to go with the other two to the food court to get some food and tea. Louis slid a chair by Zayn's bed and patted the seat for her to sit in. Rose crossed the room and took a seat and Louis sat on the edge of Zayn's bed with a low groan.

"You're not that old, Louis, no need to grunt," Zayn said chuckling at Louis' childish antics. Zayn gave a loud sigh and then his face scrunched as he winced and held his side. Louis gave him a concerned look reaching towards Zayn in a protective manner, "I'm fine, my meds are just wearing off," he said and Louis nodded pulling his hand away from Zayn.

"Rose," Louis said looking at her with a soft look, "Zayn and I want to apologize to you."

"What for?" she asked looked between the two gentlemen with a furrowed brow on her forehead.

"We know you overheard us," Zayn said shifting his bottom on the stiff hospital bed, "Louis and me. We were talking about how you were pulling Harry away from us," Zayn said and Rose looked down at her hands and let out a soft sigh.

"Thank you, but that doesn't really matter anymore does it? He is married, isn't he?" she asked swallowing a clump of saliva that was sitting in the back of her throat.

"Rose," Louis said leaning over and placing a hand on her knee, "It matters because well... you know," he said and she looked at him with a confused look.

Louis sat up and looked at Zayn with a confused look just as Rose was looking at him with. Zayn shared a similar look and they both looked at Rose unsure of what to tell her about the end history of One Direction.

"You don't know?" Zayn asked and she looked at Zayn, "About why we broke up?"

"No, Harry won't tell me," Rose said softly and drew lines on her leg, "If it's alright, I want to wait until he feels comfortable enough to tell me," Rose said and they nodded.

"Why? Most people would want to know," Louis said and Rose glanced up at him with a soft smile on her face.

"Harry doubts himself and when he finally realizes that he's moved on from it, he's ready to talk. I know Harry better than you think I do," Rose said looking at the boys with a raised eyebrow.

"Well I'd hope so," Louis said with a chuckle glancing at Zayn, "You two-"

"Louis William, don't you dare finish that!" Rose said pointing her finger at Louis with a warning tone in her voice.

"HAVE SEX!" he yelled and Rose blushed a violent shade of red and hid her face in her hands. Zayn let out loud laughs as he watched the two, "Heya Harry," Louis said and Rose turned around and saw Harry, Liam, and Niall standing in the doorway of the room with odd looks on their faces. Niall was laughing like he always did.

"Do I want to know?" Harry asked walking over to Rose and handing her a bottle of water.

"All I said is that I know you better than they think I do and he, of course, turned my words around," Rose said opening the water bottle and taking a sip of it and watched Harry shake with laughter. She saw him and Louis talking with their eyes. Rose lurched the water bottle upward splashing Harry with water. He gasped and looked at her.

"That's what you get for making fun of me," Rose said and stuck her tongue out at Harry and he rolled his eyes.

"God! I can feel the sexual tension between you two! It makes me sick!" Louis said rubbing his temples with his eyes closed.

"Fuck off," Harry said with a laugh, "Leave Rose alone."

A loud beeping noise erupted and Louis pulled his phone from his pocket, looked at his phone, and began typing on it. He stood up and put his phone in his trousers and looked at Louis and Rose with a smile on his face.

"Eleanor has the guest room ready and she wants to lock up the house. Is it okay if you two share?" Louis asked and Harry nodded giving Rose a smile, "No sex in my house okay?"

"I would never dream of it, Lou," Harry said sarcastically, "Are we leaving now?"

"Yeah," Louis said walking over to Zayn and giving him a hug, "Love ya mate, see you tomorrow."

"Love you too, Lou," he said with a smile. Louis pulled away and went over to Niall.

"Call me if anything happens, okay?" he whispered into Niall's ear. Niall nodded and pat Louis on the back.

The three of them walked out of the hospital casually chatting with one another. Harry found it strange that the cameras weren't hounding him and Louis like they normally were when they were with one another in the past. However, they have moved on from their public lives and have settled with private lives like those that they used to have. Harry and Louis got in their individual cars. Harry made sure to follow Louis around town to his house.

"Was it good seeing the boys again?" Rose asked after a few minutes of silence in the car.

"Yeah, yeah it was," Harry said with a smile on his face, "It was just... so sad seeing Zayn in the state he was in. I couldn't help but feel bad for the bloke. Then, I missed so much," Harry said looking at Rose, "Most of the lads are married and have kids. Well, Zayn and Liam at least, but still, they've all settled down."

"Except Niall," Rose added with a laugh.

"Niall will be Niall," Harry said with a laugh, "Do you want to know what he told me today while you were talking with Louis and Zayn?" Harry asked and she nodded making a soft noise with her lips, "He told me that he wants me to find him a girl like I did with Lou and Elle. He called me Mr. Matchmaker."

"You are a good matchmaker, Harry. You have two out of two married with children," Rose said poking Harry's dimples gently making him chuckle.

"True," Harry said with a grin glancing at Rose, "Maybe I'll find him someone from work. Someone like....Maria!" he said with a grin on his face. Rose gave Harry a confused look and he smiled at her, "She's the other music teacher. We help each other out."

"Is she nice?"

"Yes, she is one of the few colleagues who talks to me to get to know me. I mean, the others talk to me, but they always ask about the band," he explained and Rose smiled at him, "Lou is turning, we must be at his house."

"Well, considering this looks like a house and it has a driveway, I would assume so as well," Rose said and Harry glared at her and gave her a light smack on the arm. She grinned at him cheekily.

They got out of the car and grabbed their bags. Louis came over to them glancing at his phone. He glanced up at them and put his finger to his lips indicating them to be quiet probably because Eleanor was sleeping. Louis walked up to the door and unlocked it letting the pair in the house.

Rose saw that it was clean which was unlike Louis, but hey, it's been five years, he probably grew up. He motioned them to follow him. He led them upstairs, down a hallway into a bedroom, and flicked the light on.

"I hope the bed is big enough. Otherwise you two can just spoon," Louis whispered quietly with a smile on his face.

"Louis," Rose spat and Louis put his finger to his lips.

"Night!" he said and shut the door.

"He didn't even tell us where the toilet was," Rose whispered to Harry as he stripped down, "You have no shame," Rose said and peeled off her own clothes leaving her undergarments on.

"Nope," he said with a grin on his face, crawled into bed, slid his silver band off his finger, and placed it on the bedside table, "Come into bed," he said patting the space next to him.

"I'm coming, hold your horses," she said, he chuckled, and she crawled into the bed and cuddled into Harry's toned chest. She rested her head against one of the flying swallows and traced over the opposite one.

"Why do you always do that? Trace my tattoos?" he asked and she shrugged.

"I always have, haven't I? I dunno, it's something that I like to do and you have many interesting ones," she said with a smile, "Let's get some sleep, shall we? It's been a long day."

"Indeed," he said leaning over to kiss her forehead gently.

Silence overtook the room as the two closed their eyes wanting sleep to take over their bodies. Rose lay in Harry's sweet embrace wanting this to be where she sleep at night every night. She knew that this was too good to be true, but she would embrace this moment as much as she could.

Around an hour later, a loud wailing noise of an infant sounded waking Harry and Rose from their slumber. They both sighed and looked at each other with the same look.

"Louis would not tell us about him having a baby," Harry muttered burying his head in Rose's neck. He bit her neck gently leaving small marks on her skin.

Rose let out a soft giggle and put her hands on Harry's chest. Harry rolled over her hovering her body and kissing her neck swirling his tongue around making large, wet marks on her neck.

"Harry!" she giggled quietly, "You'll make Louis want to come in here if you keep doing that," she said in between her soft giggles.

Harry didn't mind her and kept kissing her soft skin. He pushed her dark hair back, kissed her forehead, and then kissed her lips gently pushing down on them applying pressure to his lips. Rose brought her arms up, wrapped her arms around Harry's neck, and kissed him back gently.

"I promise you, we'll be together... officially one day. I'll do whatever it takes, I want us to be together," he said seconds after he pulled away from the kiss, "I love you," he whispered to her and kissed her cheek before rolling next to her.

"I love you, too, Harry," she said with a smile on her face. Harry played with Rose's fingers and kissed them gently as he stared into her brown eyes as they lay side by side in the bed looking into each other's eyes. They both drifted into a sweet dream-like state staring into each other's eyes.
