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


1. Prologue

Summer was nearing and people of Cheshire were beginning to grow extremely anxious for the three month holiday to start. However, there was one person who was dreading the start of summer and her name is Rose Arthur. Rose didn't want summer to start due to her boyfriend, Harry leaving for the start of his world tour with his band, One Direction. She didn't want him to leave her for who knows how long. Harry was determined to keep her a secret so none of the fans knew about her.

In August, Rose had turned the fresh age of 18 being six months younger than Harry. Harry had turned 19 in February and it was late May now.

Rose was sitting on the sofa of her small home mindlessly watching the television. She was rather bored because Harry wasn't answering any of her text messages and she was confused as to why he wasn't answering them. Harry was always the person to respond no matter what even if he was in the middle of a radio interview.

A knock sounded on the front door and Rose hopped up of the sofa to answer the door. She opened the door to see Harry standing at the door and she smiled wide, but her smile faded quickly when she noticed his hands were shoved into the pockets of his trousers and he had a saddened look firmly placed on his face.

"What's the matter, Harry?" Rose asked walking towards him.

Harry let out a sigh and walked past Rose into the house and took a seat on the sofa and put his elbows on his knees and looked up into Rose's brown eyes. She was just staring at him and he felt his heart slightly breaking as he looking into her caring eyes. He looked away because he couldn't bear to see her face knowing he was about to break her beautiful heart.

"We need to talk," he spoke softly patting the spot next to him on the sofa. 


Rose sat down next to Harry and he took her hand and put both of his hands on her one hand. He lifted her hand up and pressed it to his cheek and looked at her. She saw a few stray tears fall from his eyes brilliant green eyes.

"What's going on?" Rose whispered looking at him with a concerned look on her face. She placed her hand on the middle of his back and rubbed circles on his back. Her eyes were furrowed and her eyebrows scrunched together. He let out a soft sigh and stared at her with his vibrant green eyes full to the rim with tears threatening to spill over.

"Harry," she uttered her lips barely moving as she said his name. She could feel her heart beating faster and she began to grow nervous as she was curious as to what Harry was so upset about.

Harry kissed her hand gently and closed his eyes and looked back at her with his cheek resting against her hand. He looked so sad and this was just adding to her heart aching.

"I don't want to hurt you," he whispered and Rose could practically hear her heart breaking as the words spilled from his lips.

Harry sat up and kept her hand firmly in his hands. Rose was watching him and felt tears begin to well in her own eyes. She noticed one side of his cheek be pulled inward as he bit on the side of his cheek. He sat back against the couch and looked back at her.

"I-I think it's best if we take a break for the time I'm on tour," he said softly and that is when Rose lost it.

She pulled her hand away from his hands and stood up from Harry and turned her back away from him. She had one arm resting on her torso grasping at her side and her opposite arm's elbow sitting on her hand as she covered her face with her hand. She took in a few deep breaths and let out some shaky ones as well.

"Rose," Harry said standing up and reaching to put his hand on her shoulder.

"No, don't touch me, Harry," Rose snapped turning around and looking at Harry with an upset look on her face, "Why? We had plans! You wanted to get married when we were twenty!"

"I know! It's just-"

"Was it the boys again?" Rose asked and he sighed and walked towards her and put his arms around her in a tight hug holding her close to his body, "Why?" she croaked and then tears began to spill out of her eyes and onto the cloth of his shirt that clung to Harry's muscular body.

"I'm going to be gone for a long time and I think it's best we don't worry about being there all the time and we can be free to do what we want," he said and Rose sniffled into Harry's shoulder, "You're still the only girl I'm ever going to be in love with."

"Why would you break up with me then?" Rose asked softly and Harry rubbed her back and rested his chin on the top of her head.

"I don't want to hold you back from the life you could have," he said softly and Rose pulled away and looked up at him and gave him a confused look. She brought her hand up to his cheek and ran her thumb over his cheek.

"You're not holding me back, if anything you keep me moving forward," Rose said and brought Harry's forehead to hers and kept her eyes closed, "I love you so much, Harry, so, so much."

"I love you too, My Flower," he said and kissed her nose gently and ran his finger across the tip of her nose, "But I don't know how long I'm going to be gone for."

"Then I'll wait for you," she said and put her hands on his chest and spread her fingers wide across the surface of his chest.

"I'll tell you what, we'll find each other one day, and when we do, we'll go back to the way we were," Harry said making a promise to Rose that would forever change their lives.

"You promise?"

"Of course, you're worth waiting for."
