More than this - Friendzone

He has always been my best friend, we had always made time for each other even though he goes on tour and doesn't live here anymore.
but some how something changed, I saw him differently now and I caught myself feeling something more than just friendship. Best friends don't fall in love with each other right?
but our friendship turned out to be more than that!


6. Thinking some more

- Peyton -


we sat in his car, the thing that he was thinking on was still bugging him. I frowned as I looked at him. he was concentrating on the driving though. he pulled up next to a little diner about 30 minutes from our houses and school. he parked and turned of the car before he got out. 

I sat still and watched him as he walked up to the diner, he must have realized that I wasn't with him because he turned around and looked back at the car. usually I was right there with him right now but this sting that was bugging him was still bugging me. 

this time it was Harry's time to frown, he walked back to the car to the passenger door and opened it for me.


"are you okay?" he asked and looked at me.

"what is bugging you?" i asked.

"I thought you had let that go already." he said and sighed.

"if it isn't that important just tell me." I begged.

"no, I can't. Just let it go Peyton! I won't talk about this anymore." he said without raising his voice.

"we don't have secrets." I said.

"well we do now, just let it go." he begged and took a step back to let me out. 


I shook my head and stepped out of the car and walked pass him towards the diner. I was still very curious and I just wanted to know what was going on. we had never had any secrets before. I told him everything, well except of the weird thought I had this morning when those girls was given me looks. 

I walked in and went right up to our usual table, it was a booth next to the large window in the far back of the diner. it was considered their best table because of the view over the green fields and the pond not far from it. 

I sat down and took of the blazer and put next to me with my bag. I kept my lips shut and took the menu that was laying on the table and started reading it. 

I saw in the corner of my eye how Harry walked into the diner and how he sat down opposite me. he took the other menu and read that. 


"hey Peyton! Harry you're home!" Mary the waitress greeted us as she came up to take our orders.


Mary was always there when we where. she had white hair and wrinkles around her eyes and looked like the nicest woman ever. 


"hey Mary, I'll take the hamburger and fries with a Pepsi please." I said and knew I sounded a bit short but that was Harry's fault.

"hey Mary, yeah for a couple of weeks, came home this morning." Harry smiled and gave her hos menu.

"and what would you like to have then?" she asked with her thick Texas accent as she took my menu before turning to Harry.

"I'll have the same as Peyton." he smiled.

"two burgers coming up." Mary said and walked back to the kitchen and left us alone.


I opened my bag and took out my phone, I was so going to ignore him until he told me what was wrong. this is what we would do if one of us was angry with the other. we would shut the other out until the other said that they where sorry. 

I didn't dare to look at him though, I was afraid that I would crack and say that I was sorry. this behavior wasn't me, I didn't know why I was so angry with him to begin with. everyone has the right to have secrets, even best friends. 


"Peyton, look." Harry started but then he went quiet again.


I stayed silence.



- Harry -


I knew what she was doing, she was giving me the silent treatment. I knew that I was going to be the one that had to give in this time. the only thing was what was I going to tell her? 

this was the most difficult thing I had ever had to think of at the moment. Louis's words was ringing in my head, 


 you can't say you think, you have to know! 


I knew I had to figure out this hole feelings thing before I talked to her. the only ting was I didn't do 'not talking' to Peyton that good. 

I shook my head and looked up on her. her hair was falling down in her face and she was looking at her phone. 


"Peyton,  Look." I said but went quiet again, what was I suppose to tell her?


she kept looking at her phone but I knew that she was listening, that she waited for me to tell her what was going on. I sighed again and decided to give it more time. I wasn't ready for this conversation yet. 


after a few minutes Mary came with our food and we ate under silence. she was really going to give it all to this silent treatment.  

Peyton was one of the most stubborn people that I have ever met, when she tried anyway. and god she was really trying it now. 

I don't really know why she is doing this though. I know we don't really have secrets for each other but this secret could destroy us If I don't play my cards right and I really don't want to loose my best friend.

when we where done eating Peyton took her blazer and her bag and left for the bathroom. I sighed and went up to the cashier to pay for the food and to wait for her. after a few minutes she still hadn't come out of the bathrooms so I just walked out of the diner and went up to my car. I could as easily wait in my car as in the diner, she still wasn't talking to me.


- Peyton -

I walked out of the bathroom stall and washed my hands in the sink before I fished out my phone and scrolled down the contacts. there it was 

Tommo ^^

I pressed the number and waited as the signals was beeping into my ear.


Louis : L  Peyton : P

L: "Hello?" 

P: "hey Tomlinson!" 

L: "Peyton! what a surprise" *sounding a bit panicky*

P: "okay what the hell is going on? what did you say to Harry that made him act so weird?" 

L: " I haven't said anything." 

P: "Louis, you got to be kidding me? after he talked to you he was not himself."

L: " I.. I.. I" 

P: "just spit it out Lou!" 

L: " Peyton, It's not place to tell. You really need to talk to Harry."

P: "I'm not really speaking with him right now, he doesn't wanna tell me what's going on."

L: "give him time, I think he will tell you when he is ready." 

P: "ready for what?"

L: " I can't tell you that."

P: " fine."

L: " sooo, he saw you in your underwear huh?" *silent giggling*

P: " he told you?" 

L: "he tells med everything."

P: "he kept staring at me, it felt weird."

L: " Weird how? one of the most hottest guys in the world checked you out!" 

P: " I didn't hate it, but that's not the point. friends aren't suppose to check each other out."

L: " you didn't hate it?" *more giggling.*

P: "yeah, I kind of liked it when he looked at me like he looks at other prettier girls."

L: "Peyton you are a pretty girl, don't think that you're not okay?"

P: "that's not true but thanks Lou." *silent sigh*

L: "don't make me call Harry and tell him all this." 

P: " Lou, don't tell him."

L: "you guys really need to talk to each other, like seriously this is ridiculous  I'm not going to be in the middle of this.

P: " Sorry Lou, I'll talk to him. I promise." 

L: "good, tell him I said hi. bye Peyton." 

P: " bye Louis."


I really needed to think this trough, why didn't Lou think it was his place to tell what was going on? why did he think that this was ridiculous? 

I was more confused then before I called. I put I phone down in my bag and put my blazer on before I left the bathroom and walked back out into the diner. our booth was empty and I couldn't find him inside so I walked out and saw that he was sitting in his car. 

I took a deep breath and shook my head before I opened the passenger door. Harry didn't look at me and waited patiently for me to get in and put the seat belt on before he started the car. 


"I'm going to drive you home and then I have to spend some time with my mom, I haven't really spent that much time with her lately." he said.

"okay." I said and tried to smile.

"okay." he said and drove us home.


he turned into his driveway and turned the car of before he got out and rounded the car to open my door. I smiled for his gesture and let him help me out of the car without any objections. 

he looked at me again, like he had looked at me this morning. his green eyes looked into mine then down to my lips then up to my eyes again before he stepped back and said a quiet goodbye and left me outside wondering what the hell was going on.
