Inner Demons

Lucy Karahem lives with her twin sister Lara in a neighbourhood built for families with twins. She has a major crush on Harry Styles, not Edward, Harry. She is a singer, she is having her first live performance soon and when she falls off the stage and into his arms... She really falls.
Used to be called "Falling Into Your Arms"


21. Confession

"You're sure you want to do this? Because I can call him and make an excuse-"

"No, I need to do this." I cut Lara off. I did, everything really had to come to focus. 

"Alright..." She agreed with a little reluctance. I can't blame her, with how I've been acting, she has every right to be distrustful of me.

The mirror was reflecting me perfectly, the cobalt blue, hi-lo, handkerchief dress, the dark leather combat boots and the union jack box clutch. 

I ran a hand through my curled hair and let Lara place the flower crown headband over it. 

"There, you're officially perfect." She commented. "I'm glad to have you back, Lucy." 

"I'm glad to be back." I told her and turned to face her. "So he's gonna meet me at the place?" 

"Yup. I even took precautionary measures to make sure Harry wouldn't interrupt this time." 


"You're nervous?" 

"How could you tell." 

"You're my twin Luce, I know these things." 


"Okay, so Niall will drop you off and Louis is gonna drop off Edward. He's gonna be sure he's in a tux." 

I breathed a sigh of relief, phew. "And you'll be waiting around the corner if anything goes wrong?" 

"Yup. Talk to me this time, I don't want to see 'Lux' ever again. Kay?" 


She hugged me and all but pushed me out the door to wear Niall was waiting in his car. 

"You look great, Lucy." He said as we pulled away and I buckled my seat-belt.

"Thanks, Niall. I'm sorry about, Lux. Seriously, though, I wish that hadn't been my fallback plan." 

"It's okay. What matters is that you're back." 

"Yeah..." I smiled and looked out the window as we came up to the park and noted the small area where we were going to meet. 

The trees around the small gazebo had been covered in soft white lights, and along the railings matching lights sparkled. Green garlands had been wrapped around the columns and there was a small boombox sat off to one side. 

"You guys went overboard." 

"Nah... Okay maybe a little but we haven't been able to decorate like this since that one christmas dance we had two years ago. You can't blame us," Niall answered. 

"Well I love it." 

"Good, because if you hated it, then you were staying there anyways." 

I laughed and hugged him through the drivers side window and walked towards the gazebo and crouched down to find an appropriate CD to put in the boombox. I popped one in and smiled at the soft, swaying tune the played through the speakers, louder than I expected. 

The only thing left to do is pray that he actually comes, and listens and agrees. Nothing else matters to me right now. I hurt him and now I feel it, and I hate that I did it to him. If he doesn't accept my apology I don't know what I'll do. 

Soft footsteps on the gazebo floor caused me to turn around and smile at Edward's approaching figure. We met in the middle of the gazebo. 

"Hi." I said, not able to avoid the butterflies in my stomach and the pitter-patter of my racing heart. 

"This is..." He paused and examined the area. "Impressive." 

"Yeah, we can thank my friends for this." 

"You look beautiful." 

"Thanks..." I felt my cheeks burn as the blush spread through my cheeks. 

"And by that, I can tell that Lucy is back?" He asked, hopeful and staring into my eyes. 

"Yeah... I reflected on everything that happened and it seems I was wrong. I hurt you and I can't forgive myself for that..." 

He smiled, bigger than I'd ever seen him, his eyes sparkling with happiness. "May I have this dance?" He asked, noting the music. 

I placed my hand in his and he pulled me close, wrapping one arm around me and holding mine with his other and allowing me to place my free hand next to his neck. 

We twirled to the beat, and when he spun me, he brought me into a kiss on my return. 

I can't say I didn't enjoy it.
